    can we just pack in a heavy sack and throw into thimphu river; summer is not far. such arse creaping in such in the last shangrila derserves such a cruel punishment like in the past eras during the penlops.

    another alternative: its harsh, cut their hand first for stealing, then, leg for making the move and finally head for acting like an animal.i want this pushishment to be given in the public.

    It is a shame! Such a small population, with huge number of reported crimes, and it is everywhere, most unreported!!!

    It is unsafe these days to move around. How can these situations prevail? Is our police force really complacent? Please note, this is how gang culture evolves in any society.

    By any means, we should not let spark cause the fire and thereby we encourage this institution. Let us end it here. “A single spark can start a prairie fire….”. It can be disastrous to our small society, if not controlled at source. Given the mandate and support of majority, police should able to do it. You should show zero tolerance to such acts.

    Indeed the catch was a good deed from general perspective but we need to understand why it is happening given the size of community and area.
