Bhakts have been howling at the top of their voice claiming SSR’s death was a murder because of their hunches and Mumbai police was aiding in cover up ( as if the Maharashtra govt murderd him. Or something) yesterday we saw u.p police literally burning evidence in the dark of the night .. but hey that’s not murder which is so clear for everyone to see. The family of the rape victim even threw themselves on the Ambulance to stop forceful cremation. But no the bhakts blind to thier heroes only want justice for ssr even though it’s not even established he was murderd.
