    Ranjan R who spoke against the judiciary remanded for 4 years. Let's see how many days this monk will be behind bars. My guess is few days and issue closed. Government will repair the jeep at tax payers money. Sorry SL you are doomed. Wonder if this was done by a Muslim what the police would have done?? Same spoon different servings I suppose

    Muslims wont do such low grade things. They go for bigger things, like bombing Churches.
