Here, Shyamali. You clearly don't read international news. I live in one of the "best" countries in the world, and these incidents are everyday occurences.

In a country where the so called Law Makers are big rogues, what's wrong in a Law Enforcer committing a small crime.

May be the prominent politician who attempted to prevent action against this cop was receiving commission from his loots.
