Hmm.. I tend to disagree. If the father knew how bad the jails in India where, he should have guided his son to become a law abiding citizen. The fact that the father was not really bothered about his son being a rapist does not gel well. Mohanti Sr. used his own clout to keep his son away from the hands of the law. Some one else did the honours and tipped KP off. Best for Mohanti Jr. would be to serve out his complete prison term, and then start up some thing new.
A thief in Kerala had a biography written about him. This chap after robbing a home in Kerala, landed up in a place Hediyala in rural Mysore district. He took up a Muslim name (his wife was a Muslim), took up tobacco cultivation and became a major supplier for folks like ITC. He was all set to contest elections. A fine morning he was walking towards his shop when he heard a call for "Maniyan Pillai". By instinct, he turned back. A familiar jeep and all familiar faces sitting inside. This was after around 5-6 years after the crime was done. Salim Bhai @ Maniyan Pillai came back to Kerala as a pauper and as a criminal.

Only the BJP state unit and Comrade VS said openly that Mahdani's speech need to be investigated. I guess the rules of Parole and that of bail are clearly kept out of all this, to give an impression that Mahdani did not violate any law. The Karnataka police team in charge of Mahdani had raised this concern (of him making the speech) then and there. I do expect some drama from Kerala side, when Shri. Mahdani-ji is taken back. Suddenly falling ill, and getting hospitalised may be one such tactic. BTW, the slogans which were getting shouted when this fellow landed up in his home was pure and simple religious calls, so it was as "secular" as it can be. The nature of the supporters, there idealogical leanings were all out in the open.
