Hunting the tiger(s)

I've always wondered how fugitives are able to contact courts while the police cannot trace them. Tiger Pataudi has been hiding from the police over the past 10 days and has approached the high court seeking bail, after the same request was turned down by the lower court. This case of the tiger killing a deer (couldn't help but write that) reminds me of a similar incident few years back. If my memory serves me right, Salman Khan was arrested for killing a deer of the endangered species. Salman escaped the trial unscathed. Somehow I feel that we will witness the same result in the Pataudi case as well. The VIPs seem to have their own ways of getting out of the tangles. I wonder if the 7-year imprisonment rule for killing endangered species has ever been enacted in our country. Ofcourse the Rs.25,000 penalty would be peanuts for those who poach.
The jungle is not the only place where poaching is happening. The corporate jungle is in the midst of a good year and so there is no dearth of poaching in here also. Since poaching in software companies is yesteryear's news, people are now discussing the poaching in airlines. Airlines seem to be preferring to pay more for the trained staff of other airlines, though some understanding between the airlines exists. Btw, does any one know how to get the Rs.500 ticket of Deccanair? I've never seen that in their online booking site.

Jammy, i guess there are more loopholes in our sattam than the number of sections to punish a politician or a VIP.

I guess that 500 ticket is all about time. I heard that they publish the availability of such tickets some months in the website and take it off as ssoon as it gets filled.

And abt that poaching part, well, bored of even thinking and commenting. Somethings dont easily change.
