Hi Fatemeh,

I'm assuming you're using the "old"-style CS policy.  Take a look at 'insert' method for the policy (e.g., line 106-125 in util/trie/random-policy.hpp).  What you need is to add a random decision to return false and avoid any other actions in this function: if insert returns false, the data packet will not be inserted.
