Irony is that, one fine day, my friend calls me and says his car is missing from a gated apartment. The first thought that went through my head.. Is my karma affecting him. I told him not to worry and told him and advised him what he has to do.
The cops were worse in his case. No one visited the crime scene. Just took his car license plate number and gave him a file number. He has to check with them for the status. After 10 days, he calls and finds out that the car was indeed found and is in some junk yard. He has to pay 200$ to reclaim it. It seems the car was found 2 days back. The most atrocious charge is 50$ for notifying him. The car is found, it is in a junk yard. No one informs my friend that the car is found, but they charge him 50$ for notification.
If he has called a few days later, they would have charged him storage fees also. What to think of the cops??
My opinion about cops, law and order in this country is going down faster than a sinking submarine.
