Pinning down More

After the public uproar around the Sunil More case, Mumbai's police made it a matter of pride to get the guy convicted. When they found themselves running short of evidence, they asked for two DNA tests to be done. Well, the results are out, and the evidence is still not conclusive.

A third DNA test has therefore been asked for. Mumbai Mirror reports that the police are desperate to have More convicted, and quotes an official as saying:
Losing the case is just not an option. Imagine the public fury if that happens. The government too will then look for scapegaots from within the police department. That is scary.
Weirder and weirder. I wonder how this will pan out.
