    This is true story happened to me. I wanted to sell my old TV and put ad in one of the web page in DK. This particular customer came and purchased my old TV and after the purchase, used to call me regularly. I found fishy. After two weeks, he says, his mother is in the hospital and urgently can you owe me Rs. 10,000/=.Politely I said, I have bank loan and bank has send me notice, to pay the loan. After that, call stopped.

    Robbers, looters have a very sweet, sugar coated convincing language because they have mastered this art.

    Police Encounter is the best medicine done like to Vikas Dubey in UP. These kind of people social terrorists. Don't wait for the justice system to drag the case for another 50 years and finally result is a Draw. Let police take care of all injustice.

    Be a excellent and trustworthy friend of anyone all times. The minute they tempted or asked money from you, please show your back and run away from such people. Never look back at their face.
    I use one formula. if someone ask money, after seeing their emergency need and if they ask 10,000/- I will offer them only 100. or maximum 1000. and I will tell them I don't want it back. that is for you I will tell. No tension or headache of getting back 10,000/- rupees

    Moral of story : never make strangers as friends / never get acquainted with someone you don't know no matter how innocent they look.

    Seven cases are registered against Swaroop Shetty!
    Wow! he certainly is a Gold medalist of Police and
    Judiciary, confirming good connections.

    How does the Police and Judiciary expect to eradicate
    crime when they can let loose such record holders?
