Dil 'dhak dhak' karne laga !!!
Aspiring actress Preetii Jain, who has been accused of conspiring to kill film director Madhur Bhandarkar, was admitted to JJ Hospital last night after she complained of chest pain and breathlessness.

Now why am i not suprised with this bit of news.

These days, many individuals who are taken into police custody seem to develop 'convient' health problems. And the worst bit is...that in many cases they actually do escape with their 'white lie'. This just further high-lights the pitfalls in our law and order system.

Here is a small list of high-profiled individuals, who developed medical problems during their stay at the 'police thana'.

1. Bharat Shah was admitted to JJ Hospital after he complained of a severe chest pain.

2. Mumbai police commissoner R. S. Sharma accused in multi-crore fake stamp paper racket sought bail on health grounds as he was
suffering from hypertension, chest pain, giddiness and other problems. The actual truth.

3. Ravi Subramaniam, an accused in the Sankararaman murder case, was admitted to the government hospital here following
chest pain. The case was also known as 'the holy man controversy'.

4. The Bombay Stock Exchange broker Ketan Parekh the master-mind behind Rs 120 crore (Rs 1.20 billion) Calcutta Stock Exchange scam, could not be brought to Kolkata as he fell ill at the Mumbai airport and had to be

5. Former Indian cricket skipper M A K Pataudi, in police remand in connection with a poaching case, had to be hospitalised after he complained of
chest pain.

  1. but of course. even mere ordinary mortals like me use that excuse to full effect. for traffic offences. just act really stressed and breathless and feign a heartattack. 'hospital ... signal isliye toda ke ... ke ... *gasp for breath strategically* ke ... mujhe ... dil ... dard'. By now the cop gets alarmed and waves you off. Works every time.

  4. Nish - We land up giving excuses for minor traffic offences...these guys are way beyound are league. Talking of traffice usual excuse is that 'my sis is having a baby so i need to get there FAST'....or 'Boss, it is my birthday nice'. I think women get away with it..more easily than men.

    Anshul - I guess so... :)

    Aparna - Thanks for the visit.
