@Zaki: In what fools world are you living, disobedience or an informal negligence by a passenger doesn't get a bullet or doesn't deserve death in any manner. Defending your security officers with such pathetic excuse is inadvisable. Sanctioning a challan is the maximum penalty passenger can get, beating him to death is damning and should be condemned, This article should not be up to debate, and try realizing whats right and whats wrong
