reality. Life today is full of a challenge that changes the mental attitude. There is a tendency of being materialistic which affects the uncontrolled behavior of life. So, crime is rampant with different motives and forms in society. Abuse of power, authority, law and religion are only a mask to meet the goal of temporary interests.
