    The sole problem is liquor. Earlier days, there was no liquor served during mehndi or any function, those who wish to drink they would go to the bar. Nowadays if anybody born or dies, people just need excuses to consume liquor. Govt should make a strict rule that no liquor should be served at any social or family function. Offenders should be penalized.

    This type of gang war replicates what used to happen in Mumbai in the 70s; soda bottles, tubelights, swords, guptis, razors etc.!!

    Perhaps the anti-social elements of South Kanara deserve a Hyderabad style police treatment to shut them up permanently.

    Don't mind, the case will be made zero and fighters heroes. Politicians need them during elections. They are party Karya-kartharu. Police can ralax until they receive transfer orders.
