All the findings, statements and recordings are not leading to any solid conclusions. Media trials, public judgement and verdicts are already out on the internet. However, we should forget the fundamental human right, “innocent until proven guilty.”
There are many incidents where innocent lives were crushed under false allegations and judgements. Therefore, think before forwarding any misleading information.
Also, One World News does not claim that the arrested people are non-guilty.
The probe is underway, and we should wait for the final verdict of the police and concerned authorities. If the incident proved true, strict actions should be taken against the culprits, and justice should be delivered to the innocent.
