    This is utter miscarriage of law. In North Carolina (USA) vehicular manslaughter can be charged as a Class D felony. A conviction can result in a prison sentence of 38 to 120 months and a fine to be determined by the judge. Lawmakers in Karnataka need to look into revising the penal codes.

    six months for killing three people? very less..accident punishments are very lenient in this country...that is why no driver is bothered while driving..

    If one reads the news article of the accident in 2014, it is written how the then MLA Mohideen bava had visited the victims familiy house to condole the deaths. But we didnt see similar gesture during Aatish accident at nantoor few months ago. Infact despite all the protest and media scrutiny, i dont think they still visited Aathish parents. This is the difference of our votes when done on basis of everything except development
