    Robbery is a robbery who ever does it. University students think they are above the law of the land. It is really sad that some try to justify her act and put the blame on the government .

    This is a pathetic story and that reflects how the helpless countryman suffering although the ruling class enjoy the life. The bank should consider some concession to the poor family.

    This is an example that in a state of financial pressure one saughts to immoral activities no matter how much educated. The recent statistics that bank deposits (saving) has dropped and pawning has increased is another sure sign that this kind of stealing, snatching, forgery, cheating, duplicity culminating into serious offences to come due to the ever increasing hardships for survival in this country.

    It is really hard to make a decision in this case. Whatever the situation, mistake is the mistake. If a university student do like these things, then what about other ordinary people? There are many ways to recover such an amount.

    what a pathetic situation we are in??

    Grammar Boy Wednesday, 18 April 2012 10:38 AM

    Indeed, to say the word for a third time: PATHETIC.

    That is no excuse to terrorise people and behave like animals. Natural justice should prevail as done with any other thief. We should be expecting much more from a university student who after all are getting their education at the expense of the tax payer. There are much worse off who are honest enough to do the right thing.

    Feel Sorry for her. No matter what.

    It is high time to think about society. Poor girl tried her best for a good thing but what she did was wrong. All big people do all wrong things but they never get caught. So forgive her after reprimanding. Think of her future and release her after punishing lightly. People who are able should help her to release her mortgage.

    Well Said. Indeed this is a sorry state which was predicted with the cost of Living hike. Expect more of these from innocent people who will turn out to be jean Valjean's just to survive.

    This is not the above the law of land since she is a university student. you should think twice to analysis the situation. She is an educated girl, she must have done things because no other option to recover money. Therefore, even educates make crime mean society you and I live is in danger.
