Jessica Lal

The murder and acquittal in Jessica Lal's case brings forth all that's ugly in the Indian society. If you have money and political clout you can get away with any crime under the Sun, whereas people languish in jails for decades for petty crimes viz., ticket less travel in train.
Ms Bina was running a Bar illegally. A fiction was created that it was not a Bar, but a private party, to help Ms Bina suffering the ingnomity of imprisonment. Every one court, media has accepted this fiction.
A murder was committed in front of at least a hundred people yet , the murderer not only goes scot free, does another murder ( of Nitish Katara) while on bail. The judiciary, the police and the hostile witnesses are all guilty of shirking their citizenship's responsibilities.
