In the last hours of their meeting, he raised concerns regarding the police's diet and fitness and also suggested them to eat more fibre-containing foods and fruits.
He told them that fitness is very important in any form of life. A fit personnel can give more outcomes while performing their duties, which will also help them in thinking in solving crimes and acting on their cases more accurately.
After the brief discussion about healthcare and fitness tips with Singh, the officers were offered oats, diet sandwiches, sugar-free tea, etc. While sipping tea, Singh again reminded them to try to avoid sugar as much as they can to stay fit.
Singh said, "I like to stay fit. I have won a lot of won trophies while playing for the Maharashtra IPS cricket team. I have also been a captain of the team.
