Ek rupiyah banaam ek din

Read this.

It's seriously time to overhaul our law books.

Forget the fact that you need a century old act on an obsolete contraption to explain detention on suspected espionage. Just have a look at the possible punishment.

"... a prison term of up to three years, or with fine extending to up to Rs 1,000, or with both...."
Assuming that the first two options are somewhat mutually substitutable, since they are punishments for the same crime with differences in degrees, it translates to at the most Re. 1 for each day in the prison.

Sheesh.
