Fear of life for wrongdoers

“The police are saying that they have no information regarding the plot to murder three pro hindutva leaders. Therefore I do not wish to say anything about it. Those who do wrong will always have the fear for their lives. A normal citizen who has done nothing wrong will have no fear,” said Mr Rai.
