Only In India

This could probably only happen in India. What? The following:

Workers from Honda Motorcycles and Scooters India Ltd. protested over something. What, I don't know. India's press has no concept of "whole story", they just tell you what happened without any information on the background of why it happened.

Anyway, they protested, police retaliated and approximately 1,000 workers were injured and taken to nearby hospitals. The evening of this protest, the Civil Hospital said that 550 people were admitted there. The next morning the hospital said only 29 people were admitted. You have to admit, that's a pretty significant different.

When the workers, who had not been sent to the hospital, found this out, they again went crazy. The sisters of one of the missing people went to the police, was treated badly and the workers started protesting again.

The political leaders "alleged that the local administration had lost all credibility and were not providing proper succour to the patients." Alledged! Not providing proper care!

What are they drinking over there in India! Here's the full story.
