    In a hurry to recruit numbers seems AAP has landed with characters like these. A classic case of numbers vs quality. An example must be made of this animal

    Dear Mr Kejriwal, Am deeply shocked to read about this incident. Like all Indian parties, even AAP has dirty mindset people working in it. Now whats next I wonder? Do you have anything to say? Can you come out on National TV and talk about this incident? Atleast let people know that you will not tolerate this and will not allow this to happen again

    Is it possible that a Mr. A rapes Miss C and C traps Mr. B, medical report just says rape and does not reveals name of rapist, and yet police catches Mr. B just because C is a women and she cannot be wrong.
