    one life has gone due to the harassment when the person has every right to live. This shows how our society is. And people like Mr Parthasarathy and rajnish gulati are still supporting. Cast-ism and crime should be punished at all cost. whether its doctor or lawyer or anybody . Grow up guys.

    Without a proper inquiry we should not do a media trial. We still do not know the complete story. My condolences to the family, however, many a times an entirely different story emerges and it seems that in such cases, the caste angle is unduly exploited.
