TOKYO METRO SARIN ATTACK
By Neel Anil Panicker
Baton wielding, whipping, water cannons, tear gas, pepper spray, rubber bullets, electric tasers____Goro knew the drill as his tiny eyes peered through the long range telescopic lens at the increasingly virulent crowd that had laid siege to the city square, choking the main arterial road, bringing the city to a virtual standstill.
He turned around and slipped out of the side lane, his footsteps picking up speed, his hands under the coat pocket caressing the vial of sarin.
A minute later, he spotted Akira, then fifty metres Daiki and Hachirou, all with their hands inside coat pockets, and all entering the mouth of Tokyo metro.
