    This is bihar. Police are really good at doing nothing and creating crime. Many are part of criminal gangs. Nothing will get done. Criminals hide under the protection of the politicians.

            Looking at all the comments here I feel apparently such dastardly crimes happen only in Bihar and nowhere else in India. Rather than trying to score political brownie points we should condemn crimes irrespective of the political party ruling the state. Besides people have such short memory. Last week we were wondering about the safety of women after the perfumers murder, this week we question the ruling government of a state, hopefully tomorrow we will be celebrating India's win over New Zealand

              Not even close.From Southern part of the country. Painting everything with political colours helps no one. Was simply pointing that out. Seems people dont like my view. Every one is enled to their opinion. Long live Democracy.
