    What?? Seriously? Feels like this is a knee-jerk, emotional reaction following ‘nirbhaya’ incident. I hope they are truly thinking about long-term ramifications while drafting these feel-good amendments.

    • Original R.Pai – “What?? Seriously? Feels like this is a knee-jerk, emotional reaction following ‘nirbhaya’ incident.”

      IIIrd WICKET JURISPRUDENCE.
