She said she has not been coming to shop since due to the lockdown. And so she got called up this morning that her shop has been broken
She went to report to police station 2 shops away from hers. Buh she said the D.P.O told her that “They can’t be everywhere”
Axcording to her The D.P.O came this inspect her shop this morning after the robbery buh they said “There is nothing they can do”
This is so sad that her friend is the real owner of the shop but handed it over to her to oversee before travelling abroad.
I’m pained because this police station is just 2shops away from my aunt’s shop. And I’m sure they are aware of the robbery happening at Prime
Yet they only go about what is irrelevant Hear-no-evil monkeyBroken heartBroken heartBroken heartBroken heart
