  1. WELL first of all this girl should behave properly, she has taken a drink, then was skimpily dressed , then one is asking for trouble, wereever you may be INDIA/USA/UK anywhere these things happen if you don\’t behave properly in public especially in tourist spots like GOA/PONDY etc.

  2. Medical ethics must be taught as a separate subject in first year, not as a small part of FM in second year.

  3. Once you consume alcohol , it does not matter whether you are a doctor or actor or lawyer or minister. In this case, the security was assaulted. Please check whether their parents/ relatives are politicians or politically connected. Why I am asking this is that Years back in Delhi, son of a politician killed a female model for not serving alcohol to him in the party. Whole media was against him but still what punishment was given to him, the readers can search and get it. The main reason for committing crimes in India is lack of fear of law and easy escape route if you can manage.

  4. People are actually defending them?
    Most cases are not false allegations or traps
    Why is it so hard to accept that such guys exist?
    It is good that Dr Kiran Bedi is enforcing strict law enforcement.

  5. Dr Naidu, Not so fast. There is a saying \’look before you leap \’. How do you know that they were not trapped into it. You talk like a politician who pass judgement before any enquiry.
