    people of unsound mind should be put in right places and not regular households. They are a risk not just to the families with lil kids involved but society at large... Necessary laws need to be brought in to rope em and treat em...

    My deepest Sympathies goes to his family.... May Allah grant him Jannat. By the way no point talking politics over a dead body. Hey commentators be civilized before you'll comment.

    The "OFFICIALS" go around blamming the residents, but all the mosquitos are breeding in the Road side Drains and areas. we still dont know why this person was beaten to death.
