    Why spend public funds for this. Ask the former IGP and the defense secretary to come out and tell the truth.

    People have lost all hope in this investigation. It’s all a staged attempt and the people now know it. We feel sad for those who paid a heavy price and we are afraid of our lives too.

    The investigation will be completed soon after the election. Until then have to keep memories alive.
