Witness security an absolute must

For witnesses of ghastly crimes, it is ek taraf kuan, doosari taraf khai?. Those who come forward to be witnesses may have to suffer a lot. I did not agree with punishing them, whether they are hostile or not. It is my opinion that the witnesses be provoked to tell the truth before learned court. It is always up to court to favour with them or not.
