It is not the legal system, it is the people who are running this system and these comes from our society only. But recent developments in Indian judiciary has shown some positive signs,like conviction of Sanjeev Nanda(BMW case), Sanjay Dutt(Mumbai bomb blast), Santosh kumar(priyadarshni mattoo murder), Manu Sharma(jessica lal murder), Vishal and Vikas Yadav(Nitish katara murder). Now days, judiciary has become more stringent against influential people because of media. Utsav Bhasin(BMW II) has been charged under more sever sections of Indian Penal Code.

Law is same for everyone in India but the criminals and rich have sufficient money to hire the best lawyers who will fight their cases, tamper with evidence, buy the witnesses and take advantage whereas the poor do not have access to a good lawyer who can defend them. It is all money power and since ages, the rich and corrupt have always got away from the hands of law leaving the poor to face the law strictly.

The law or Court does not see the persons. It only knows the evidence put before it and the prosecutor has to prove that what charges have been made should be proved. There. The answer for your first part is question is that the honest person or normal human being does not know the law and in legal term "ignorance law is no defence." As far as the second part is concerned, all those persons are financially wellequipped and they get battery of lawyers for their defence. However, as I said earlier.the case depends upon the evidence put before the Court and according to that evidence, judgement is given.
