    Oh ok, who is taking which law in which hands here, Minister Naidu Saheb? Isn't this Tughalakabad train killing pure and simple hate crime by goons having no noble sentiment about anything, including humanity, law and religion? Why are you not treating them as unvarnished criminals, when you are treating protesters in any agitation as criminals? Isn't this crime connected with the various RSS BJP hate campaigns in the same way as Kashmir unrest is related to the propaganda by separatists?
