    Criminal case should be launched against Municipal Authorities. This is an annual recurrent feature all over India. Even children losing lives in open manholes/loose manhole covers, is heart wrenching. But problem is Govt authorities protect Govt authorities

  2. Except a doctor everyone else can get away with anything that can result in harm or even death . No one will take responsibility for a death that\’s so unfair.
