    Similar things has happened in our town too. I must sat that cemeteries are full of dead heroes. I hope the top brass recognize this man's bravery. So what happens to all the drugs they collect?

    I think they should have shot the vehicle. Jumping on to a moving vehicle is not really a brave deed.
