The Angel of Truth
When I read the news of rigorous imprisonment of five years term to the Super Star of the Bollywood (Indian filmdom), I was not shocked because it was the justifying verdict of punishment for a person committed murder unintentionally or accidentally. But the Indian film Industry expressed its shock without any bounds and made illogical comments about the poor masses of India. The people lead an elite life criticized those who are sleeping on the foot paths of urban roads, because they don’t have a dwelling. It was a shocking information that how the well to do people are thinking about their ill fated, unlucky fellow country- men.
The verdict of the case was issued after thirteen years of the said incident. The verdict was based on the statement of the policeman who was deployed as the body guard of the film star committed the accidental incident.
The police constable Ravindra Patil was present inside the car at the time of the run and hit accident which killed one person instantly and injured many those who were sleeping their night on the shop side path near the road. The cope advised the film star not to drive in such a speed that he could not control the vehicle.
The Police Constable Ravindra Patil made his statement of the incident which led to the judgment of punishing the culprit.
The aftermath of the cop was shocking. He was under tremendous pressure to alter his statement. But he insisted in the truth. Within a span of five years the cop Ravindra Patil met his end. He died within the clutches of Tuberculosis. He lost his police job. If he agreed to change his statement, he would have been enjoyed with lot of money given by the film star. He never would have been inflicted with bad incidents.
But he stood for the truth. He respected the people those who lost the life, lost the limbs.
I am shocking to hear the story of this real Police Man.
I salute the brave police man Ravindra Patil, The Angel of truth.
