Khalid: I will take it easy and go for a jog.

(Couple share a laugh).

MM: Will your continue to be active on Twitter?

Khalid: No, I won’t. By midnight, I will tweet for the last time and I will let my account be there.

I don’t want the attention to be taken away from the newly-appointed IGP.

MM: Do you think your relationship with the media has been good?

Khalid: Definitely. You all have helped the police force to highlight all of our successes and brought us closer to the public.
