Q.

After a tortuous delay, the Delhi sessions court has found Sanjeev nanda guilty in the BMW hit-and-run case. But this will not bring back the dead. As it was a high profile case, the media reported it daily. But there are thousands of similar cases which do not come to the court and find no space in the media becoz they are not sensational. What about justice in those cases???

It is true many such cases have not come to light because they took advantage of the loop holes in the law. It is true that those who lost the life will never come back. 5 years imprisonment awarded to them is far less in view of the fact that they after the committing the crime not only left the place but tried every unfair means to wriggle out of the situation. This sort of things sets precedence.

My dear Cyrus, we meet again after a long time. Are you suggesting that in high profile cases justice is denied because more severe punishmet is meted out because of public hue and cry? I believe the rich and the powerful have must carry a heavier responsibility of setting an example before others in the society than those who lack the power and wealth. They ahve to set the standards- politicians, bureaucrats, industrialists, celebrities, heroes of the sports fields and the rest . They have been given the power, the best opportunities and great amount of love and respect by the society and they owe it to the society that they behave responsibly. Therefore, you might object to the media making hay while the court case is on, but that does not mean that the people with great advantage over the rest should be treated like the rest. Equality in the eyes of law is not absolute equality, it is subject to many other considerations. It is the effort to get away with everything illegal a ...more

People should stop feeling dependent on media to bring justice to their door. What media was their in the times of Gandhi ji.
People, who wants justice, has to fight it out. After sometime, the media is going to be misused as well. Where then people will look for help? We have already seen few such cases where media was misused. Parliement Money scandle, Delhi Teacher in Sex racket case.
