Honour killing

This refers to AV report ‘Dalit boy killed over affair with upper class girl; seven arrested. There are black sheep in every profession and the police are no exception. They take the law into their own hands just because they are supported by thugs and corrupt politicians. Just to solve a crime, when police cannot arrest the actual culprit, they look for soft objects to frame them.  A neighbour of a friend of mine residing at Mahim was severely beaten and thrown out of the house on July 23, 2016 by her daughter-in-law. When the lady who is around 70 years old went to the police station to lodge a complaint against her daughter-in-law for harassing her, the cops there including the senior inspector would not note down her complaint. They openly told her in Marathi, “Fill our pockets first; only then we will take down your complaint.” A day is not far when the public will punish the police for their wrongful actions. If only a hundred people gather outside a police station for justice, then just see how the tables turn. But who will dare to fight against them.
