No smoke without fire

MPA Arif Khan Sandhila is in a culture where ethics and morals do exist. To protect the weak against the strong and to secure for a moderate share in the good things of life. If Dr Sana was just like his daughter, then as a law-abiding person he must do his duty. , "We know that there is no greater injustice than to treat as equal what is in fact unequal."
