Will the law treat a policeman and a minister equally?

A police constable was suspended for hugging the actor-cum-convicted criminal Sanjay Dutt. But will a Congress minister guilty of the same crime be punished? I doubt so. Maharashtra CM Vilasrao Deshmukh insists the minister has committed no crime. “Dutt is like a family member for him. You must understand that police is a disciplined force. The norms applicable to them may differ from those applicable to civilians,” he says. Guess we are still living in an animal farm where all are equal but some are more equal than others.
