Any death is put on the government. The opposition has gone so bankrupt. If someone's grand mother dies , be aware Sajith clan will yell it is Gota!

Why no news of the defender driver? Where are the CCTV evidence. As usual CCTV not working or turned off with prior arrangement? Country with top people in the root of criminal activities! Police works efficiently only if they want, if not all nothing done.

Some useless Ex MP's son crashes car, name all over the news. Someone knock down a police officer, nobody knows the the name or the license plate capture on CCTV. Now please don't find a letter on the police officer saying he rode into the incoming vehicle.

The driver while on duty was drunk. Confiscate his licence forever. The brave policeman life taken by the drunken driver.

Most likely a foul play, The doctor has a back up, otherwise he would not have involved in it. This will deter other police officers doing the right thing. South Asia is a dangerous place for intellectuals and honest people. Disasters are inevitable in South Asia, because of the massive population and limited resources.

A honest Policeman's lifetime is only 22 years?
Why him? Is it a Crime to be honest?
A well planned execution? We will never know the truth.
