    Take all those protesting three wheelers to prison. Its for this purpose that they protested. They wanted permission to kill. No need to say the lorry driver was responsible as well but even if tweelers see a vehicle coming their way they will never stop or take evasive action. The brake is a forbidden item in the tweelers. via DM Android App
