Law breakers should be punished stringently -TOILEDP4 Mar 2008

This is with reference to the horrific murder of a policeman by car thieves stealing tyres (March 3). Our deepest sympathies to Nagesh’s family, colleagues and friends. The tolerance exhibited by the executive, judiciary and society towards such violence on government servants should be most severely condemned. It is sad to note that the suspects in the recent hit-and-run case involving a highway engineer in Tamil Nadu are still free. It appears to be a gross distortion of civil rights, upholding the rights of few such criminals at the expense of the rest of the society. We need more stringent punishment along the lines of West Asian countries if we are to instil the fear of law in the minds of law breakers. Government servants should be allowed to carry arms and use them when necessary
