    Please treat them as drug dealers and no bail until all legal procedures are over.

    It all started by getting on political platforms and then riding Pajero's and Benz cars. That was followed by climbing walls and shout at junctions. Then the wearing of a jumper and now getting shot. As my neighbors mother used to say "When asking for trouble as for it nicely". Well at that time it was a canning.
