  • The PM, Ministers and others appealing for clemency is not an interference of another country's laws or disrespecting it. You are so low level mentally I am sure you can't understand that. The only thing this IGP understands is brute force and draconian measures to intimidate. Now he talks about respecting other country's laws. He does not even respect the laws of his own country by his actions he took when he was IGP. He is a low level life as far as I am concerned.
