Rukhsana appointed special police officer

I think this is an acid test -- how well we're able to protect Rukhsana and her family from the militants' vengeance will have a significant impact on the efforts to contain the militancy. Here's a thought (armchair punditry notwithstanding): provide her and her family with Z category security right in her home, instead of hauling her off to Delhi. If we're short of personnel, we can always pull them from our dear netas' entourages -- the cost of this protection is well worth the message this sends.
