After an accident in which Ram Singh broke his hand and had to undergo medical treatment for long, he accused Gangadhar of not helping him out financially during the treatment. Gangadhar, on the other hand, had an argument blaming Ram Singh to be ill-behaved, drunk and a rowdy driver. Gangadhar even tried proving that at the time of accident Ram Singh was driving the bus unlawfully after he had been terminated from his service two days ago - an accusation Ram Singh doesn’t agree to.
Through the show, it was revealed to the audience that Ram Singh had developed permanent disabilities in both his hands and had claimed a compensation of Rs 12 lacs from his employer by registering a case in labour court.
A YouTube video of the episode shows Kiran Bedi. It is sad to believe that for a day, the viewers were driven to sympathize with the person who fostered a criminal mind – somebody we all would like to see punished with the hardest of the punishments available. Most media personalities and common men alike, who are calling for judgment today, had emotionally taken a stand in favour of Ram Singh during the episode.
Driven by prejudice and pre-conceived notion Gangadhar’s version describing Ram Singh as indisciplined driver was ignored. Despite Singh agreeing to having developed serious disabilities in both hands, no one advocated for revoking his license. Ram Singh, the devil who was driving the private bus on Sunday night around the posh localities of Delhi when his friends took turns to rape a poor girl, had been let loose by Indians and Indian law only out of sympathy. Should we as a nation have been stricter that day?
