    1. Accused arrested over a year ago and in prison without trial
    2. State government claims man part of gang stealing sarees
    3. Vijay Mallya Mallya owes over Rs. 9,000 crore to lenders

    Hearing the case of a man in Telangana who has been in jail for a year for allegedly stealing a grand total of five sarees, the Supreme Court had a question - what about the person who has defaulted on crores of rupees? The hint at Vijay Mallya, the liquor baron wanted in India on charges of fraud linked to unpaid loans, was not missed.

    Chief Justice of India Justice JS Khehar did not name Mr Mallya as he said, "A person who has taken away crores of rupees is enjoying life. But here a person who took five sarees is in jail."

    The Supreme Court was hearing a petition by the wife of Ch Eliah, arrested in Hyderabad over a year ago and in prison without trial.

    How, the Chief Justice questioned, could Telangana take a man into preventive custody for stealing sarees?

    The accused man's lawyer argued there was no witness to prove the offence.

    The Telangana government justified the arrest saying a gang of saree thieves was operating in Hyderabad and many traders had complained about it, which made it essential for the state has to arrest them.

    The Supreme Court will take up the case on Wednesday.

    Mr Mallya, 61, left India last year and moved to the UK in the middle of efforts by a group of banks to recover around 9,000 crores in unpaid loans to his collapsed Kingfisher Airlines. A warrant is out for the liquor tycoon to face trial in India for charges of conspiracy and fraud over the loans he owes.

    He recently said that he is "safe in UK" and New Delhi has no grounds to extradite him.

    the same Telangana govt is dragging its feet on arresting the younger Owaisi for the hate speech on Hindu dieties. they kept stalling it and later on he was given bail. My blood boils.

    ironic is not it? India as a country always lets big fish escape and only the normal man with no links to police, politics and paisa (money) are the ones who gets the first hand experience of "law of land".

    Today I paid my advance tax for one lakh out of fear that I shouldn't be taxed unnecessary U/S 234(B and C).

    But it is OK to jail the man as he has caused distress and loss to the traders who are not like India or big rich fellows!

    And thank God as the thief was caught by the police and jailed. Had he been caught by the traders then.........!!
