The Mumbai police encounter of Rahul Raj who had held a few passengers hostage, tied an iron chain around the neck of the bus conductor and injured one passenger with gun shot was condemned by many North Indians and three top politicions had demanded a probe into it.
Now what will be their stand on the gunning down of Kuldeep Kumar, who was returning from a party and was due to be married next month, by policemen in plain clothes in Haryana ?
This is why many cultural analysts clearly describe India as a "Prison home of 1000s of different nationalities" By a prison home, we mean prison culture. In a prison, the population is highly segregated by race into gangs, and each "gang" thinks the other gangs are collaborators w/ the police and are out to get them. And the police are quite happy w/ this setup as internal fragmentation keeps prison population under control. That's how India runs. You have a central govt which is incapable of running the country, so the matter is left to state governments, and each state govt thus takes on the role of a regional chauvanist an goes on to parade his state and his state's people as being the weakest and most oppressed and in most urgent need for justice. When 1 or 2 states are doing it, we can control it...but when the entire nation does it....it's a different ballgame altogether.
