Where ever the Political leaders involved in these rapes, if they are caught and hung the one who was supporting this thugs as they give election vote canvassing time support , at once in public it can be reduced .The rape will not reduce other wise it will keep increasing till the next 17 months . This is owing to the fact that since 65 years of independence the British virus will work strongly spreading the rapes especially in place like this Rajdhani .There is a link between our Lala Gandhi Lagna BIRTH -chart of Indian Independence linked . Widdow in India are majority power seated owing to this link . People will not understand this system fowl ones ruling over us .


There is nothing extra ordinary. Just , previously it remained unrecorded and now it is recorded


Still the Police commissioner and the senior police personnel are still carrying on as usual. Shouldn't we get rid of these incompetents or shoot these inept bastards who are responsible for the steady increase in crimes?
