Extra-judicial encounters a dangerous trend: Advocates
| Saturday | 7th December, 2019
A few activists and advocates in Bengaluru called this a ‘knee-jerk reaction’ and said that this would raise questions about the judiciary in itself.
Leah Verghese, a legal researcher, said, “The incident needs to be thoroughly investigated to determine if it is an extrajudicial killing.
We have a justice system which provides for trials with various safeguards to determine guilt.
Our anger needs to be channelled into holding our leaders accountable for the failing justice system rather than resorting to mob justice.
“Real justice had been served,” was a common sentiment amongst Twitteratis and women on WhatsApp groups.
