Sawang was referring to the 'Dasa Sutras' (10 rules) propounded by Prakasam district Superintendent of Police (SP) Siddarth Kaushal during the first wave the pandemic last year to enable the district police personnel to avoid contracting the virus.  "The Dasa Sutras programme has been working well and all the district police officers in the state should implement them to keep Covid at bay," Sawang said.  Kaushal held a video conference on Wednesday with 2,026 policemen, including 2 ASPs, 13 DSPs, 148 sub-inspectors and other staff, on how to prevent Covid amid the raging second wave and implement the Dasa Sutras for their safety.  Kaushal said the 10 rules are part of the district police department's overall response to coronavirus.  "We have to do some self-preservation of police frontline staff. It is more of an operational doctrine. It is a new way to perform our regular duty," Kaushal had told IANS earlier.
