  1. In this life, it is always important to get to the bottom of things before passing judgement. If the above report is true, my urgent question is who constituted a board of inquiry?. What were the findings from
    1. The accuser
    2. The accused
    3. Real time witnesses
    What were the concluded observations to justify the measures taken.
    I feel it would be prudent for the powers that be to inform the public of the findings and the preventative measures taken so as to deter future wrong doers whether be it the accuser or the accused. My opinion
