Smoking gun: Sadist Serial rapist arrested

A serial rapist with a strong element of sado-masochism was arrested after deceiving his victims as an aggressive ‘policeman’. After the heinous act, He would leave a trade-mark cigarette burn as a showcase of his burning passion, which would never die.

There are two lessons to be learnt here.

The delay in Intelligence gathering on the beats is questionable.

Policemen in India need lessons in culture and manners. An aggressive policeman is the norm, and an image of an abusive, violent cop is imprinted in the minds of the public. If all cops are polite, calm and logical; then in future situations people will be able to intimate such deceivers.
