    Excellent!! Why not investigate for Saagarika Gomez's killing too?

    How can a war hero and a valiant soldier be arrested on suspicion ? Won't the president and other patriotic leaders recent at this action ?

    Tremors (to put it mildly) from Geneva causing reactions here.

    Is abduction synonym to intelligence in your book?

    Evidence aside these guys would probably never see the inside of a prison except while visiting an inmate, and I'm sure they have enough people to send there without really going themselves. :P

    A man who has committed such a crime can not be a war hero, he is not even valiant. Moreover, it is extremely difficult to find true war heroes at all.
