Nothing new with the story. Jadeja’s wife will get away as money talks. However, the cop is wrong – trashing is not a cop’s prerogative! Rightly he should be punished but also don’t let go of the damsel if she has committed a crime – money should never talk! Good Jadejas!

Most of the Indian cop start taking action by themselves all the time regardless of their proper procedure .. procedure is there for only VIP people .. which is bitter truth in this case I am sure that cop would not know that she is wife of Ravindra ..

And those on the side of the police have reacted in this way:
So is she going to escape even after hitting other vehicles??

When a vehicle is in accident or mishap.. the owner is responsible same as one who was driving it.
