She also said that she had no regrets in questioning the wisdom of all those who celebrated such encounter and did not really care if she was trolled for this.

'It is my opinion'

"I am always trolled. I don't care. It's my opinion and I have every right to have one. I don't think Police encounter is a good thing and it should be encouraged or celebrated. Everyone should be tried and punished legally and rules should follow to everyone. Will rapists belonging to rich and powerful background be treated the same way? If not, then why this differential treatment? Why the legal route was not followed? I was really upset to see all that and I do not approve that," Jwala told Republic TV in an exclusive interview on Tuesday.
