    Horatti has been a member of the state legislative council since 1980 and he holds a couple of university degrees. It is a shame that a person who is supposed to look after the affairs of the upper chamber of the state legislature should be implicated in any criminal or civil case. Unless the FIR is motivated by political considerations (that he does not belong to the ruling Jumla party) this is a matter of shame for the State Legislature itself.
