    The arrest of Gangster Pinda ‘attired as ASI’ during attack in far off UP is a positive development, and the prolonged judicial holding such in jails accused of anti India activities, murders, etc is a highly dangerous and objectionable matter. Apart from this jail break, these elements are also routinely capable to abduct some important politician, officer or even some one or more innocent citizens, and demand release of such accused in retrun. Same thing happened in Kandhar, and India is paying very heavilt inthe incidents of Mumbai, Parliament attacks etc etc. The utmost necessity for such criminals is first to keep them in a totally unknown, remote jail any where in far off, but strong jail, second put them to whatever strong, prolong including third degree investigations, third extract whatever information is required or obtained, fourth all court attendances be held per video attendance alone, no where pace of detention be on court papers, and lastly and fifthly through fast court judicial process, the case be decided and such heinous criminals only hanged, no long or hard prison terms. All pending cases in courts must be subjected to all above procedure, and such criminals hanged within 30-45 days without publicity, as over 10,000 such criminals shot dead in China each year in China, this number exceeds far more than all of the judicial deaths all over the entire world, a reason why China, on this count, is far more peaceful, even smallest crimes are punished strongly and within short weeks, lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Suraj Parkash
