Sad Day for the Indian Judiciary System: Abha Singh

Submitted by Subeditor on Thu, 2015-12-10 18:17 Mumbai: Advocate Abha Singh on Thursday said exonerating Bollywood superstar Salman Khan in connection with the 2002 hit-and-run case was appalling and a sad day for the Indian criminal judiciary system. “Coming to Salman Khan's thing, when the issues on same facts on which the session court gave him a punishment of five years, it found him guilty. The chemical analyst report which found that alcohol content in Salman Khan's case was adequate.If the court is not ready to look into these statements than one can only say that it is a sad day for the criminal justice system of the country- it really shows that it is a appalling for the Indian judiciary system,” Singh told the media. “Those policeman and the persecution should be arrested instead of Salman Khan if they made a wrong case. If High Court says that the police and the prosecution made a wrong case then I would request the honorable High Court to arrest those people, you cannot make mockery of the judiciary system,” she added. Singh further marked that how a star witness like Kamal Khan was dropped out of this case. “Even warrant was not issue to him (Kamal Khan) to bring him back to India. and this is what have benefitted Salman Khan. Also if now the court says that the driver came at a late stage where in the statement of Salman khan is it there that it was Ashok Singh who was driving the vehicle and not Salman Khan,” she added. Senior advocate Singh said that these are very glaring issues and Maharashtra Government must look into the matter if it wants to clear the name of Mumbai police and prosecution. “Maharashtra police must go and appeal so that the country needs to know what the truth is. Police and prosecution have not live up to the reputation. The faith in the judiciary system must be restored,” she added. Salman Khan had run over a group of persons who were sleeping in front of a suburban bakery on the pavement on 28 September, 2002. (ANI)
