    This is reported but falling of a cash filled bag in front of a bar right at a junction could not be caught from any camera in the vicinity. ?? Are the public expected to believe both news ?

    Please stop small children boys and girls sending to masjid/temples/church/tution after 5pm. Now a days, days are short and nights are long....over that powercut. If sending, elders should take a responsibility to accompany them to and fro. Or any of the elders should take responsibility of the children to drop and pick IN TURNS...or parents or masjid leaders should make a group of particular area and make them to go together.....appoint a watchman in every religious house .masjid/church/temple to avoid such incidents. No use of crying afterwards....
