  1. Raghaveshwara Bharati under Brief ‘Technical’ Arrest.

    TECHNICAL ARREST IS A MOMENTARY ARREST AND RELEASE. IT WOULD CAUSE A TECHNICAL GIVING UP OF CHATURMAS VRATA!

    IF THE RAPES TOOK PLACE MANY YEARS BACK AND NO COMPLAINT WAS FILED IN TIME, THEN IT BECOMES ‘TECHNICAL RAPE’! IS TECHNICAL RAPE PUNISHABLE?

  2. This is why India continues to be a third-world nation. One set of laws for common citizens and a different set of laws for rich and powerful!! How are we supposed to trust these police or judiciary? Pathetic!!
