Dear Client,

Yes, they can be examined as witnesses and if they refuse, you can file a criminal Writ of Mandamus under Art 226 read with section 482 of Cr.P.C in the concerned High Court seeking a Direction to the Police to discharge their official duties as witnesses to the crime; since they are public authorities certainly a Writ would lie against them.
