Maharashtra's deputy chief minister R R Patil has ordered Mumbai police commissioner A N Roy to check the video clippings of Lakme Fashion Week, to verify if the wardrobe malfunctions that occurred on the ramp were genuine or 'deliberate, indecent acts'.

The best of the Mumbai fashion week

On March 29 when Carol Gracias was walking the ramp for Bennu Sehgall's collection, her halter top slipped off. A day later the skirt Gauhar Khan donned for the Lascelles Symons's show split open.

'The issue of dresses falling off at the fashion show was discussed in the Legislative Council today. As per the ruling of the chair, we are going to investigate the entire drama,' R R Patil told The Indian Express. Patil it is, who is widely credited with shutting down Mumbai's throbbing nightlife.

Do you think the men who rule Maharashtra are taking their role too seriously, even tilting at windmills in their eagerness to show they are going about their job? Or are they right to order an investigation into something so frivolous? What is your view? Do you have a message for Mr R R Patil?

Tell us, dear reader.
