      Why the Police still allows them to roam freely the Ganja sellers and what action had been taken during last year's stab on the TV Reporter Son and now once again they had indulged in such act shows the Police are also hand-in-glove with the Drug peddlers and now if the TV reporter lost his life they will be held responsible for their own Inaction in-colluding with drug peddlers !!!
