JohnC is right. It seems the 5 raids/5 arrests were done  as a training session for RTP officers with rank of Superintendent/Colonel or higher. Guess many of the lower ranks had leave .

Is it really necessary to write a whole paragraph (the longest paragraph) just to list the names of officers involved? Need to fill up some column space to make the article long enough maybe. Certainly doesn't make the article more readable.
