    The Newshour Debate: Case after case, no justice yet (Part 1 of 3)


    by timesnowonline

    Is justice delayed, justice denied? When the brutal rape and murder of a BPO employee in Bangalore takes 5 years to finally come to a conclusion -- and even then, the man who brutalised Pratibha Murthy got a life imprisonment against the capital punishment that her family has been demanding. When Bitty Mohanty, the man who raped a German tourist is absconding for more than 6 years -- is it not fair to ask, has the criminal justice system in India, completely failed. In a debate moderated by TIMES NOW's Editor-in-Chief Arnab Goswami, panelists -- Ram Jethmalani, Senior Advocate, Supreme Court; Neeraj Kishan Kaul, Senior Advocate, Supreme Court; Neena Nayak, Head Juvenile Justice Board, Delhi; Shabana Azmi, Actor; Neelam Krishnamurthy, Convener, Association of Uphaar Victims Tragedy; Sudhir Tailang, Cartoonist; Neelam Katara, Social Activist; Raveena Tandon, Actor; Mohandas Pai, Educationist and Dr Sayed Mubin Zehra, Social Analyst & Author, debates whether the criminal justice system in India failed the citizen completely.
