DGP SPS Rathore case - Loopholes in Indian Criminal Justice System

The much touted case of former Haryana DGP SPS Rathore illustrates the loopholes in our criminal justice system.This top cop molested a 14 year old girl Ruchika Girhotra and now after 19 years gets away with a 6 months imprisonment and Rs. 1000 fine.. !!!

Simply, not acceptable.

The teenage girl committed suicide and her family faced the unbearable torture throughout. The question is , what took our Judiciary so long to convict this civil servant ??

Its been a proven case in India since time immemorial that the rich and the powerful just gets away with minor punishments (even none in many cases) , and , on the contrary, innocent poor people keeps languishing behind the bars for years together as Under-trials. The Political patronage is one of the biggest reasons for non conviction of these high ranking officials.

Its high time that the public morality is held high and a severe punishment for such Officials is given by the apex court , so that, it acts a deterrent for the other Rathores in the Indian Police Service and in the entire Indian system as such, from committing such heinous crimes.
