I recently learnt of a case where a"big man"'s son is using his clout to eat into the private property of two old women. More despicable than the man's attempts to ride roughshod over the two ladies has been the administration's response.

However one hopes that with the use of RTI, and with the help of Praja, the ladies will get justice.
