This is not expected from people like you— SANTOSH S GAVASKAR (@GavaskarSantosh) December 6, 2019
I can understand your feelings
But we are not banana republic
When we encourage extra judicial killings it ends up in innocent people being killed what happened in mumbai in 1990 s and till 2010 it all started with gang stars
Don’t say this. India is a law abiding country. Or should be. The police need to follow the law— Sridhar Samu (@sridhar_samu) December 6, 2019
Highly irresponsible of you being a public figure and saying this.— شريفة (@callmeweird59) December 6, 2019
I strongly condemn rapes but sometimes police frame innocent / petty criminals to get rid of unbearable pressure on them so I do not support such encounters. There is every liklhood of misuse of such powers , in future #hyderabadpolice— Tushar Hindocha (@TusharHindocha) December 6, 2019
They deserve death penalty for sure but not in this way…it’s not the right thing i feel if it was a planned encounter…looks like it was😐— Abhay K. (@askme_298) December 6, 2019
No Saina.. not expected from you.. what if government wants your family to be eradicated for some foul plan of theirs.. Atleast educated people should be in favour of better judiciary system and fast track courts for such grave cases— Sarabjeet (@Sarabje72287918) December 6, 2019
Very irresponsible tweet from a public figure. This is endorsement to jungle justice. One set of criminals being eliminated by another set. Sad— Anil Kumar (@anil_pr1) December 6, 2019
