Episode #19 : Unjust justice & Quota controversy

Sunday, 12 November 2006 05:30 Written by  Published in Indicast

For the past couple of weeks, there has been one high profile conviction after the other. But there exist big inconsistencies in the sentences handed out which makes us think whether the Indian courts have become like cricket umpires where a few bad decisions are all part of the game? The jessica lal case has been going on forever and then at the same time a rape sentence is handed out within 10 days. Our second topic was about the reservation controversy. 

Episode Notes:

  • Out, in and out again for the main accused in the Jessica Lal case. The entire story covered here
  • The rajasthan court just took 10 working days to give a 7 yr sentence in the Rajasthan rape case
  • Reservation or totally merit based? Amardeep has a good blog post
