Police action on lady councilor
Why did the police act the way they acted with the AAP Municipal councilor Nisha. I hope it was not male police men beating her up. Regardless, not the kind of treatment anyone in millenium city deserves. more

Where is the so called video? In what way blocking encroachment is equal to fighting corruption? more
Col. Jagia has passed judgement without knowing facts and declares Nisha Singh guilty and the administration innocent. For his information, there are videos which show that she was far away from the crowd and the police was between crowd and her. She was and several others were recording videos of the incident. While her phone was taken away by Police while beating her up, there were other people recording videos which captured her recording videos and the incidents further away. The narrative being put out by the administration about the Sector 47 violence and what happened there after is largely fictional in nature.
The fact is that she was targeted for teaching her a lesson for trying to expose corruption in MCG and elsewhere in Gurgaon. more
Why do we tend to blame the law enforcing agencies without considering the complexities of the situations that they have to handle? The restraint that they have to exercise because of law of the land and civilised behaviour expected of them, is actually exploited by every one including mafias, politicians and other parties with vested interests in the related manner.
