They say that in India life is cheap, for whatever that statement is worth.
Here in BolehLand, a growing number of Indian detainees have mysteriously died while in police custody.
I hope no one is thinking that life is cheap, especially when it is not your own.
Just yesterday, another Indian detainee died while in the Tampin police lockup
Of course we have to wait for the autopsy report.
But as usual, the authorities predictably rushed to deny that there had been any foul play.
Just yesterday too, the wife of another Indian detainee had given a tearful press conference demanding that action be taken against those responsible for causing her husband's death.
We wait to see what the authorities' response would be.
Will it be another case of the three monkeys' trait in action - see no evil, hear no evil, do no evil?
It is past high time that the authorities do what is necessary to allay the people's lack of faith and trust in the police force.
It is past high time that the Umno/Bn government listens to the people's cries.
As a government, you can't just think of your own preservation.
That omission probably explains why the majority had voted against Umno/Bn at the recent polls.
