May God bless you all on your efforts and dynamic detective work - it makes me and the people of Udupi proud to have people of your calibre at our service.
Shame on this guy - a Poojari - some Poojari to defame the Hindus.
I hope they will hang this SOB, a cold blooded killer, and will not waste any more time in bringing about justice the Indian way of trial and eventual bail and eventually more similar crimes.
