“There would not be any use pursuing the case. The case would have no significance after six months or so. People are likely to forget. Those who wanted to teach the lesson and pursue the case are likely to back off since they would be ashamed” Saritha Lewis seems to have reportedly said.
The local police who have visited the residence of Saritha Louis at Pilarkana in Shirva Manchakal, seems to have not found her name in their ration card. Moreover, police state that, they are unable to investigate the case further, since her name is not in the ration card as the case to prove the Indian nationality. However, the social workers argue that, how PCC was issued to get her passport, if she was not an Indian national. How she secured the passport?
At any cost the struggle would go on till the justice is done, Roland Salins and Vishwanath Mada, Rons Bantwal said.
