Even if took the Indian judiciary nearly 2 decades to deliver the justice, when former Haryana DGP, SPS Rathore was jailed, it became the triumph of our democractic system. This molestor who took the life of a budding young tennis player, Ruchika Girhotra deserved this confinement and this verdict came as a shot in the arm who bat for the justice in these high profile cases.
Most of all, the credit should be given to the Indian society for bringing up this case to its logical conclusion by voicing its support for the grieving Girhotra family. The judgment and imprisonment, which was enhance to 18 months from the intial 6 months, is actually a victory of the people. First it was the Jessica Lal case through which the public conscioussness came out in the open to the judiciary and now Ruchika’s case which has cemented the belief that if the powers which govern do not take correct action, the Indian society will raise its voice to correct it.
For change let us be proud of our Consciousness and Public Awareness.
