If you got money and because of your company if thousands die then also our Indian laws do not give them life imprisonment.

If you are corrupt but you got money then also there is no punishment.

If you got money and even if weapons or bombs are found in home then also you will not get life imprisonment

But if you are poor and honest and do the simple mistake or if authorities do not like you then also you will get life imprisonment.

But Dr. Binayak Sen got knowledge , he got education , he got heart
But he was not billionaire

Is this reason Dr. Binayak Sen got life imprisonment ?
