    How can you be so sure that he will get a good compensation? Were you physically present when this guy Bharath Shetty gave instructions to the company officials? What will be the package like and whether palms will be greased etc . etc. There is no value for human life in today’s era. Times are bad. These are pertinent questions to be seen .... there shouldn't be any surprises and eyebrows mustn't be raised if the packageispeanuts. At the end of it all, a precious life has been snuffed out.
