I do feel sorry for this particular guy... but man, is he fucked. Check out this article at HT's website - Two years in jail for bribe of Rs.10! - that states a head constable has been sentenced for two years in jail and a fine of Rs. 15,000 for taking a bribe of Rs. 10 some thirteen years ago.
A good thing? Too harsh? I don't know people, I'm just taken aback. Don't know in a good way, a bad way, or a neutral one :-?
