Has the Police ever revealed any political involvement in abductions, murder, drug smuggling, bribery, corruption, rape and now robbery? so why should they now and certainly not from Ajith Rohan who has a stereotype answer for everything.

No one will ever be caught and held accountable for this terrible crime. Just like the white vans and journalists going missing. It is the present law of the jungle that rules.
