It’s a pity on the country’s law enforcers.

In spite of growing economically or in the run-up to the 60th anniversary of India’s Independence we come across incidents, which are just bizarre, appalling, agonizing, unreasonable, scandalous, undemocratic and implausible. In recent past I can recall incidents, which were abnormal in their own way.
In one of India's worst human tragedies. It's been 11 months since the Nithari case first came to light. At least 20 bodies, most of them children were found murdered and dissected but still a judgment is awaited.
Take another shocking & painful instance where a 32 year old mother of a child decided to walk naked to register her protest, and to everybody’s disbelieve, her protest was registered in the police station by the same officers who hd earlier refused her report against her husband. What a shame!
The wacky one was a 33-year-old man of Tamil Nadu married a dog in a bid to ward off the ‘curse’ of a canine couple he had killed 15 years ago. Selva Kumar tied a mangal sutra on the animal, pet named Selvi, at a Ganesh temple in Manamadurai. After the incident, he suffered a stroke and could not move his left arm and legs and also turned deaf. He now walks with the help of a stick.
Another abnormal and unfair incident was witnessed in UP, when we saw politics mixed with sports. Kanpur police decided to ban people wearing black clothes in an effort to ensure that Chief Minister Mayawati, chief guest of the match, does not face protest from political rivals. To avoid greetings with black flags, the administration decided not to allow anyone wearing black enter the stadium.
In a recent incident in dhar a low-caste villager was lynched and possibly burnt to death because he beat cattle belonging to his neighbour, in a case of caste-violence. 40-year-old Kailash Bagri was burnt alive a remorseless group of 50 armed villagers on November 10, after he beat an ox belonging to his upper-caste neighbour that had strayed into his field. The accused are absconding.
In September, a Dalit woman was burnt alive by hardnosed upper-caste men in northern Uttar Pradesh state, after her son eloped with a girl from their caste. Earlier in August, a ruthless policeman in eastern Bihar state had drowned two low-caste girls by throwing them in a river for stealing firewood from his orchard.
Two Dalit women died after being thrown out of a government hospital in UP. An example of cold-blooded murder. The reason was poverty. They could not afford rs 1000. Although caste-based discrimination is banned, upper-caste Hindus still practice all forms of discrimination, including not allowing the low-caste to worship at temples and insisting that they drink from separate village wells. Dalit community members, who comprise about 160 million of India’s 1.2-billion population, also largely do the most menial jobs, including cleaning of sewers and night soil, often manually.
These incidents speak volumes about injustice, corruption, lawlessness, fanaticism, prejudices, racism, extremism, sadism, cruelness, narrow mindedness, torture, violent behaviour, sexual violence, and insanity of human beings with humans.

Any law is not binding them. They are not bothered of the law. For them law is a tool.
