So today we launched the Police Commissioner’s Cup for uniformed forces. I am very happy that SBI has come forward in a very important way by sponsoring the tournament. Eight teams from uniformed forces are participating in this tournament, these are Mangalore City Police, CASF, Fire and Emergency, KSRP, Forest Department, Excise Department, Coast Guard and ITBP. All are serving the Dakshina Kannada district, the state and the nation trying to secure peace”.

I thank the SBI for supporting the department in organizing this cricket tournament. The SBI took full responsibility for organizing this tournament. We hope they will continue to support us in the coming days to organize such tournaments. Let this tournament be organized every year by different departments”.
