    So you mean to say that the three-wheeler driver had been carrying stones for self-defense? What nonsense is this? The other side of the story is that the cops were under the influence of liquor and the police still haven't checked on that fearing the TRUTH. Coming colours after August 5th are NOT GOOD.
