Our police and rangers need to gain the trust of the people... recent incident, when my sister coming from USA got robbed on gun a point. They took away every thing. Our beloved police didn’t even filed the FIR stating that it’s a daily affair in this metropolis...... in any civilized society it is a felony and the punishment could be a life term. So much so, I humbly ask the witness to come forward and guess what they refused saying that they don’t want to get involve when it comes to police..... No crime is going to be eradicated unless they have citizen's support......
