    Tragedies like this bring out the worst in ****wits on social networking sites who do not actually know anything about the law but decide to go ahead and make idiots out of themselves.

    The below has been uploaded by about 15 people on my facebook newsfeed:

    Indian penal code 233: if a girl is suspected to be raped or gettin raped , then she has the supreme ryt to kill the man , injure his sexual part or harm that person as dangerously .. that girl wont be blamed fr murder ........POST THIS AS YOUR STATUS AND INFORM MORE PEOPLE
    Section 233 of the Indian Penal Code actually talks about 'Making or selling instrument for counterfeiting coin' and thank god we don't have laws framed in txtspk. FMD.

    lol.....
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    Indian policeman injured in gang rape protest dies

    Woa! Ok it seems this is getting out of control. There are protests and then there is mob mentality.

    Well, that's what happens when you don't engage a angry crowd, and manage them but try to impose curfew and disperse them by force for 2 days.

    I went there on Saturday and though i was in the peaceful area many people were so angry that police were beating up girls marching peacefully with a candle.

    Add to that some political elements joining in, and it was a recipe for disaster.

    Btw, unconfirmed reports are that the cop died due to heart attack with no visible injury marks.

    Government and Police trying it's best to sadly hide behind it though. Whatever be the case, this was a big faliure of crowd management.

    And Home minister Shinde making a jerk out of himself and comparing the protestors to Maoist.

    Cevno, since you were there, was their attempt to break the barricades by the protesters? It's difficult to make sense of what's going on on the ground from all the news coverage from a distance. Assuming the constable died due to injury, I can think of a number of ways in which this could have been avoided...

    - The government representatives could have come out and spoken to the crowd to assuage them
    - The protesters could have avoided trying to push the barricades
    - The peaceful protesters could have boarded to the bus to go outside to restricted area leaving the police to deal with fewer people around India Gate.

    This death of constable is so senseless and unfortunate, and totally takes the focus away from the core issue. And then the allegations by the magistrate and counter allegations by police officers, it seems to have become a free for all. Very sad.

    Omar Abdullah ‏@abdullah_omar

    I made the mistake of not being seen or heard in the summer of 2010 when the trouble first started. I wish my mistake had been learnt from.


    This was a tweet from Omar Abdullah. CM of Kashmir Saturday.

    Completely agree and he is a supporter of Congress at center. And sadly he was proven right.

    I have a feeling the magistrate is making a fuss over nothing. Can't see a convincing motive for police to interfere with the interrogation.

    See these 2 time lines for the past 2 days, to see some of tactics police uses to quell protest. Disgusting.

    And then they blame people for violence.

    It's Sheila Dixit vs Neeraj Kumar/Lieutenant Governor/Home Minister being played out through that route. Disgusting.

    These past 3 days have brought everything wrong in the system. So frustrated really. Everybody playing sly games, twisting the system, supressing people and what not.
