Laws are tough (read for the commoners!) but gets little spongy when the person in question is relatively rich or influential; there were numerous numbers of instances where people with money or thump had escaped with either very little or no punishment...however, there is a ray of hope..there is a slow but a firm change in the state of affairs now-a-days..
