Our Appeal to all Indians
JUSTICE 4 PRIYADARSHINI
Priyadarshini means lovely. And so she was. A lovely girl with massive zeal for life. Law and Music were among her passions. She was the apple of her parents' eyes, as is any other daughter to her parents. She was brutally raped and murdered by the son of an IGP. This has been the only case in the history of India where the judge himself clearly wrote that he knew the accused was the culprit and CBI had not acted fairly.
It was a shame for the country's judicial system. A shame for New Delhi.
To add salt to the injury, the culprit is a lawyer in Delhi's Tees Hazari Court.
How many more years are we going to hide our heads in the sand? How many more years are we going to assume that our daughters and sisters are safe?
This in a country where women are traditionally given more respect than anywhere else in the world. How ironical?
Justice J.P. Thareja's words:
''Though I know he is the man who committed the crime, I acquit him, giving him the benefit of the doubt."
"The CBI in the matter of DNA evidence has not acted fairly. It tampered with the evidence of clothes of the deceased and also the blood sample of the accused.It even fabricated the documentary evidence and also the Malkhana Register of the CBI as is clear from the discrepancies."
10 years .. Justice denied. She is waiting with her lovely smile as are her parents' wet eyes and a broken heart.
23rd January, 1996 she was murdered.
Sunday, 23rd July is her birthday. A war cry for justice in the heart of Delhi, a protest that shakes the pillars of the Govt. and one demand - Let justice be delivered immediately.
Are you ready to give her justice?
