Police Commissioner Shankar Bidari: 'Please don't kill your spouse'
Aug 16, 2010
"I pray to the young couples, if you can't stay together happily, please live separate lives, go in for divorce. If living away from each other makes you happy, please do so.
Please do not kill your spouse, do not indulge in violence. Police have no role to play in what happens between four walls of the house. However, after such crimes, we will have to arrest the culprit who has done such a thing and he or she has to lead a life in jail. What happiness will that bring? What happiness will killing bring? I am disturbed by the recent trend, where a lot of middle-class, educated couples' lives ending in tragedy because of marital and familial problems.
This is a very sensitive matter and as police we can only investigate after a crime has happened. So I implore you not to take violence into your hands."
