The organisations which are provoking such acts must be booked. “When we are in the government, care should have been taken to prevent such acts. It will become difficult if the trend continues. The agencies must keep a watch on such people as its work is not to stop vehicles and check documents. The individuals and organisations with dangerous mindset should be dealt with strictly,” he said.
