On 27th November, the nation was jolted four men gang raped and murdered a 26-year-old Hyderbad veterinarian. All the four accused men, Mohd Pasha, Jollu Naveen, Jollu Shiva and C.Chennakeshavulu, have confessed to their crime and are under police custody.
The Logical Indian Take
The nation has been protesting against these gruesome attacks, demanding severest of action against the offenders. But to take law in one’s hand should not be encouraged, least of all by the lawmakers. Those who have sworn by the constitution should not be allowed to make a mockery of it.
When Members of Parliament encourage violence it vindicates mob justice mentality.
In several sensitive cases, our judiciary has fast-tracked cases and delivered swift justice to the victim. In this case, too, the need of the hour is for the fast track court in Telangana to deliver justice by the book and once again uphold the law.
