    We have all the more reasons to put the names of people beneficiary of Micro and Medium Hydro projects.

    Had I been an IAS or IPS officer, I would have never thought even for a second to earn money through illegal means, when these category of officers are already getting hefty salary and perks. The root cause of this disease is the lenient and lax orientation of the so called “the law of land”. Unless and until our politicians don’t develop strong will power to amend the necessary parts of the constitution dealing with punishment for crimes fully plugged of all loop holes, we can never expect these worms to be eliminated for ever from society. I personally and strongly feel that impartial investigation must be carried and if found guilt, an exemplary punishment should be given to the offender.

    Well agree with chhering..on what grounds almighty High court of Himachal given Mr Police officer interim Bail.
    Is it perk being a Government Officer?
    Is it Perk being responsible to hold the Law of Land?
    Is it perk runningaway after the accusation of Bribe?
    Well on second thought WHY Police officer in Hiding ???Has he lately lost faith in the system??
