  1. These killings are supposedly witnesses in cases being killed. If true the UN needs to step in. What are the cases these people are connected to media please reveal these details?

  2. In future please publish more background of these murders. Citizenry need to know the reality in order to adjust to our new ground reality.

    We need to know are these political killings, political thugs fighting, drug dealers turf wars, activists killings, business men being killed, people unable to repay loans being killed, extortion killings.

    Just posting some one got shot or stabbed is not news!

    Media at times tend to be accomplices in hiding the truth from the citizenry.
