    The facts concerning this incident are being slowly but surely revealed. This will ultimately show how the sheer irresponsibility of a so called "professional" has ruined an entire family.

    Most of the drivers dont bother or care about road rules. Today it was this innocent family, tomorrow it may be you or me. There is no law and order is followed in the country from top to bottom. We all will be victimised in one day. All the economic and social problems due to no law and order and decipline in the country.

    Shocked and saddened to hear that the IP has passed away. Our thoughts are with his family and friends.
