  1. Nothing will happen if big political goons are involved esp in states like UP and Bihar though such crimes take place everywhere.

  2. Goons must be punished by some thing of public order not hidden behind the colonial old blind law of the land.

    It is,dangerous to accumulate wealth even by honest means in India. Jealous elements will shoot you down. India not safe

  4. In UP in particular, where d State has become a fiefdom of dynasty or goons, I can\’t share my reaction as it is beyond any reaction. Shameful State beseeched with monster of casteism and nepotism.

  5. Shame that he was not buffalo of Reverend Azam Khan… His fault…
