Priyadarshini Mattoo case - Does it restore your faith in our judiciary?
October 17, 2006 3:13am CST
priyadarshini Mattoo was murdered more than 6 years ago and the prime suspect, santosh singh escaped scot free, being the son of an influential commisioner of police. He is a practising lawyer now. But finally the law has caught up with him! Now after 6 years her murder investigation reopened. The police have found a DNA match (this is the surest way to catch a criminal) of the accused. Further, pieces of his helmet were found at the crime scene. There is further evidence proving beyond doubt that santosh singh had indeed murdered Priyadarshini, 6 years ago. The court is going to deliver its judgment today.This is a result of a crusade taken out by a group of youngsters and the victim's father since 2000. Does this make you start to have faith in our country's judiciary? Remember, there is the Nitish Katara trial coming up shortly, where katara's murderer too escaped justice. your opinion is valuable, since i shall be taking up the number of people who agree or disagree and probably sending the figures to the media websites.

I think its high time other pending cases like this one of mattoo should be taken into consideration by the judiciary. Its justice delayed but not justice denied in this mattoo case. Kudos to the protestors for fighting to get justice, and also to the judges for taking a correct decision. But we would expect, the courts to take more decisions like this on other pending cases and that too quickly.
