    Doctor taking just 2000 rs bribe is immediately sentenced jail of 3 years. But then why the Justice is so delayed or I must say absent when the same doctor is beaten up by patients attendants. Why the law is so partial for doctors and is always against them

  2. In the similar circumstances a PSU insurance employee at Jaipur has been exonerated and promoted too. According to RTI reply the Govt has decided not to file an appeal to higher court.

  3. Kaash Aise hi jail Politicians ko hote!

    No sir,everybody in India is not corrupt. Corruption always trickles from top. But most of the citizens of free India have retained their humane values and hence India thrives ! The tragedy is that some of us look upwards and imbibe wrong values . Look down , down and more down as the great lady mother Teressa did, and then only one will understand the joy of living ! Only empty lectures of politicians and sri sri gurudevas can not enrich your life!

  6. You are right,merely because people around us are dishonest is no excuse for indulging in crime against society.
