    WHY HAS THE POLICE OFFICER NOT BEEN ARRESTED. WHY DOES THE CHIEF MINISTER NOT STOP THIS MORAL POLICING WHICH GIVES THE POLICE A LICENCE TO EXHORT MONEY AND TORTURE INNOCENT CITIZENS.

    I request Mid-Day and readers too of not passing your judgement and opinion by just watching a 30 seconds video. One need to understand on what could be the actual story and then be the judge.

    Whatever the story.. one cannot abuse a girl or hit anyone.. The Police is there to maintain law an order.. if the couple has done anything wrong.. they should have taken action as per law.. law does not allow one to hit and abuse in public.. action should be taken on office responsible. .. No one has the right to moral police citizens..
