This is worse than the Taliban. It was 10:30 p.m. Not even late by metropolitan standards. I was with my brother, my own brother Aditya Pandey, and I wasn’t drinking or misbehaving in the car at all when I was questioned by cops. The minute I said I was Poonam Pandey their attitude changed. They began to get aggressive. They wanted to know what I was doing in the car with a man. Woh mera sagaa bhai hai. My blood brother.8
