    Law and Order breakdown in Karnataka and also in whole India
    The guy caught will be let free after few days...

    The country needs strict law and impartial investigation agencies to conclude quickly and punishment to be given in such a harsh way that it should be a lesson to those who may try to commit crime in future.

    Hope Modi government with the help of opposition parties unanimously bring strict laws and speedy investigation

    Nowadays Mangalore is in the news for this kind of activities very frequently.This is happening only because of weak,lenient law and order.These kind of incidents are occurring without any fear regularly.Really it is sad and tragic incident.Culprit should be apprehended at the earliest possible and must be taught very good lesson by awarding him lifetime imprisonment.
