    According to the article, one of the accused – Faraz, who has been named Accused-1 (A1) in the case has 37 (Thirty seven) cases registered against him. This is more than the number of days in a month!

    Why is this criminal able to leave his ‘house’ and travel even 10 meters away without being electronically tagged to set off alarms at the closest police station of his ‘home’ address? How come who ever has been vouching for this criminal has also not been taken into custody? Not keeping a THIRTY SEVEN cases registered criminal on a strict leash is causing hundreds of hours of police time and lakhs of rupees wasted at all the places he has commited crimes and keeping our police force from providing the service the rest of the tax paying public deserve.

    Please confine these people so our police force is able to help the law abiding public with the many other duties they are tasked to perfrom.
