SOCIETY : ENCOUNTER - The Killing


Niraj comes across an article in the Washington Post about Bombay's new breed of "encounter" cops.
As is well known, Bombay was a breeding ground for criminal/mafia-style operations and films like Company aren't exactly fiction.
There is the ethical question echoed in the article by one lawyer ...
"Our courts do take time, witnesses turn hostile and the criminal often gets out on technical grounds. But are staged encounters and extra judicial killings the remedy?"
...but these cops have my respect for cleaning up the dirty streets.
Sometimes, the end justifies the means.
