    If public and media allow police to do the investigation properly, can come to conclusion. Let them do the DNA test and get the result first.

    The two innocent suspect should be released immediately. What is the police doing? We the public wish to know on what evidence did they prosecute the two suspects. The police were too hasty in their investigation. They also have to be compensated for the blunder of the police!

    Public must be fought the golden rule and the fact that everyone is innocent until proven guilty. What police duty is bringing suspects before the court and prosecution. it is up to the courts to decide their guilt
