    Sanjay was said to be exposing NDTV money laundering scam of more than 5000 crores in which Chidambaram was also allegedly involved. The current case is fallout of the same. (google NDTV-Chidambaram scam).

    Yes,I agree with Ram Babu because this is the only way to teach lesson to officials posted at such high level & misusing their positions against the ladies.

    15 days in this type of case to such a senior level officer + who did not change himself inspite of warning by Courts is not sufficeint. In this type of cases (i.e involving the society OR of public interest) instead of sending jail , the court should have asked him to do the job of a sweeeper OR scavenger in the very same office for 15 days.
