Leaders of both the political parties appealed the police officials to remove the attempt to murder column under which the cases on the activists are registered and apply some milder sections of IPC. However, the charge sheet will be filed as such in the case of the attack on the police personnel. It is learnt that this step was taken by leaders of both the parties in order facilitate the activists of both the parties to take part in the Ganesh Chaturthi festival.

    How can criminal acts be compromised.

    So it's a clear indication that cases are filed at the will of the police and the political wings and not as per absolute facts. Cases can be diluted or can possibly harsher based on the influence or the grudge of those involved
