    Delusion at is best. Better to work in reality than virtual reality.

    In this day and age, these clowns still think they can sway the gods to help them - gods may likely punish them for their crimes if such is possible.

    If they do this to invoke divine intervention then who ever the god they invoke can only strengthen the FCID against crooks because any god should be on the side of justice.

    Well said Premalal, Where there is Dharma and the Dharma will win. No need to break 100,000 coconuts - should have given to the poor people.

    Coconuts should have been dashed when SF was imprisoned. All crooks of the past must be worried.

    Money laundering, abuse of power is fine but catching them is not?, disgrace and shameful. Sad day indeed to see lawmakers acting this way for cheap political gain.

    Well, breaking coconuts is a South Indian Hindu custom which came in as a replacement for animal sacrifice. It is not meant to curse some one or spread anger. These people have an opportunity to prove their innocence in a court of law. Grow up buddies.

    FCID should now investigate as to who and how much was paid for 100,000 coconuts.
