Silent Whistles

#Vanzara's argument that "I did it because I had superior orders" and it's not him but the "policies" which are to be blamed raise serious questions. How far is the "I was following Superior Orders" plea acceptable? This whole episode shows that the human rights violation is actually the last thing in the minds of powerful people. DG Police has now written a 10 page letter exposing the truth only because he has been betrayed? This means he would have continued his glorious service had he been saved from the crime?
There is no written order of this kind. No written policy of this kind. 

Why did he not hand his resignation the day he was asked to kill innocent people? Aren't the famous Nuremberg Trials enough to clarify that "Superior Order" Plea is unacceptable? 

Even if it was a written policy of government to go out and kill innocents,
Nuremberg Principle II responds to this by stating: "The fact that internal law does not impose a penalty for an act which constitutes a crime under international law does not relieve the person who committed the act from responsibility under international law."

This man is not a national hero as some media reports hail him. Neither is he an example of IAS/IPS officers who face trouble because of their ethics. There are countless heroes who suffer life threatening transfers and forgo their promotions because they refuse to such unreasonable demands of the politicians. This man is simply a disposable pawn who was left behind
