• Judicial language - Temperance in judicial language cannot be sacrificed at the altar of personal perceptions and that too dehors any specific facts - The fact that Punjab State went through a period of difficult times requiring special efforts to maintain law and order is well known and that the police played a salutary role - In this some excesses may have been possible, but that does not make a rule - If there was inappropriate conduct of certain police officers, the whole police force cannot be painted with the same brush denigrating and belittling their efforts.  (173) P.L.R.
