  1. शान्तिदूत द्वारा हमला!

  2. Sad and scary.
    Why do the courts grand bail to murderers. At least in these situations we should catch up with the western system

  3. A murderer gets bell means he gets licence to murder to his will.Bell to rapist and murderers seems to be a legal licence to repeat their crime .A real shame to Indian judiciary.

    What do you do for such a dastardly act by a \’criminal background \’ patient? Should such people be released or given bail who prove to be a menace to the society? The court should accept some responsibility for perpetuating such inhuman tragedies.

  5. i think the judge and court who gave him bail should be held responsible for negligiency in this case. why in this country negligiency rules are only applied on doctors
