A family has lost their love. Delay in justice means denial of justice.
Jayam Ravi wrote- There is no one above the law. Justice should be found for this inhuman act. Karthik Subbaraj wrote – What happened in Santakulam is Bhayanak. Humiliation of humanity. The accused officers should be punished and the dead should get justice. Some humans are more dangerous than viruses.
D Imaan wrote that I was shaken after seeing the cruelty on Jayaram and Phenix. I do not understand completely inhuman and tyranny. What would have happened to them Let India raise its voice against this ruthless act. Jayaraj and Phenix are George Floyd of India.
