    Looks like these incidents are deliberate attempts to create trouble and to test the law enforcement authorities ability to track down the culprits. Time for the police to prove their mettle in tracking down the culprits and punish them sternly. Put them behind bars for minimum 5 years until all charbi gets melted.

    Why are youths, pelting stones, destroying public and private infrastructures ?? Are they fighting for insurgency, with visions to create a state for a community, likewise in Jammu and Kashmir ??? The situation is extremely potent for the nation....... The Central government, must now awake up, neutralize these secessionist evil forces, before the situation gets further murkier !!!!
