Cop writes letters to himself and replies them himself

” In Bangalore, a senior police official has been writing letters to himself for over two months. On 1 July, Bhaskar Rao, the Inspector General of Police (IGP) of Karnataka Police’s Internal Security Division (ISD) was given the additional charge of the Training Department. Ever since, whenever interaction between the two departments is required, Rao writes an official letter to himself in the other department.

His two offices are located in different parts of the city, the ISD office on Richmond Road and the Training Department on Palace Road. After Rao writes a letter to himself as IGP, ISD, he visits his Palace Road office to respond to it.”
