A Source who doesn’t want to be mentioned told our correspondent that the criminals operated in a commercial vehicle popularly known as Busimo.

The source said that the vehicle which was abandoned by the attackers had been recovered by the police.

Her colleagues cried when her lifeless body was brought back as many described her as a decent police officer.
