    Then, how is it that Siddarmiah is confident of winning!? They have to investigate seriously and if this person is lieing, if found guilty he should be jailed for a decade! They don’t want yo take the challenge, just accuse! If the law fries not permit such punishment, the public should eliminate him like they do for rabid dogs!
