And Aishwarya Rai finally admitted she was dating Salman's evil twin.

Too many revelations happening today... It is time for closure I guess.

Why waste the tax payers money? It was an open and shut case, so what is going to change in terms of the evidence or processes? First they will make a remark which would be all over the media, and then say that the prosecution was not successful in establishing beyond doubt and acquit him

Won't be surprised if a similar verdict is delivered on the Kerala Businessman/security guard case.

If Salman did not commit the murder, then we are all sorry for the trouble you went through.

But if Salman did kill, may destiny catch up with you. For obvious reasons, the case had too many loose ends from the beginning. Could have been water tight if the victims were also powerful/influential.

Salman had to deposit 20 lakhs with the court which was stuck till the final verdict was out. So the victims get it now, unless there is an appeal. Also Salim Khan had said that he would like to compensate the victims but the courts had barred them from any contact with the families until the final verdict. I gleamed all this from the news.

As is the paradox in our country, keeping quiet to everything under the sun is considered tolerance. If like the fable of the emperor's clothes, one being amongst the 1.2 billion raises his/her hand to point out & question the obvious, then and only then would it be deemed intolerance.

The beauty of this is that they always use the term generically, putting it in a very certain yet obscure context. Intolerance against even wrong, would hence be called intolerance nonetheless. Also the law is beneficial only to those who fully understand its dichotomic nature which in most cases will never lead to the actual sequence of events. Truth has absolutely zero bearing in law, it matters who barks the most in front of the judge.

On a lighter note, quite ironic, isn't it.

Are you sure of this? When he has been acquitted of all criminal charges why would there be a legal compulsion on him to provide compensation? That sounds incorrect.

That's a safeguard to try and ensure the family isn't bought off. Very noble I'm sure but am wondering if justice would have been better served if that were an option available!

I sincerely hope this man receives divine justice. I cannot abide that he goes scot free after very clearly being guilty in two serious issues.

This is why I truly hate paying taxes in this country - because there is no justice for the regular non influential joe on the road.

All due respect guys to your updates, but seriously ??

20 lakhs after 12 yrs of harrowing experience to the family who lost a loved one and probably a father/son/brother

How about a quick trivia guys:

1. Salman Khan's (ONLY) Movie in 2002 - Hum Tumhare Hain Sanam

Net Gross - 15 crores


Link


2. Salman Khan's Movies in 2015 - Bhajrangi Bhaijaan & PRDP

Collective Net Gross - 1000 crores +


Link


So 20 lakhs over 12 years is like some of the home loans that we Mango people can afford. Hell, its probably something that even Salman's watchman can afford.


P.S - I recently heard from a friend who works in a law firm that the bail amount for murder/rape is about 15-20k INR. So basically, anybody who can pull up this amount, can quite literally throw it at Indian law and walk away ???

I have said before on many forums, that Indian court system has since past decade constantly fail to give justice to the appalent especially if he is facing up to a status quo powerful and richer defendant. Or if the defendant is status quo more wealthy or powerful he will win against the appalent. The result of the case rarely goes against the status quo powerful and wealthier. The only recent exceptions in memory were the Nitish Katara case which happened 2 decades ago. Now it's all beyond repair.

Check out cases in last 2 decades and see how many cases have been won by the weaker party.

Since there seems to be no dedicated thread for the Jahnavi Gadkar incident and the issue is virtually the same, am posting here.

The more I see things developing, the more convinced I am that two separate legal systems exist in this country: one is for the ordinary person and the other for the super-rich and super-connected.

The latter system is populated by defence lawyers with demi-God status using shock, awe and every other tool at their disposal to manipulate the system into delivering "justice" for their clients. In our system we have no rights, whereas these cherished few have beautiful concepts like "reasonable doubt" and "special treatment because she is a woman" handed to them on a platter by the judges themselves.

Reasonable doubt??? In both cases the accused were seen drinking at a bar before the incidents occurred. The cars belonged to them, they were witnessed to have been driving and people who were run over died.

I get caught by a cop for running a traffic light- he writes me up a challan regardless of how close a call it was. Reasonable doubt? More like "my way or the highway".

Coming to special treatment as a lady--- or did you miss this gem in the press?--
Quote:
Sessions court judge Sanjay Patil, while granting bail, observed that the investigation of the RCF police in the case is over. Patil also observed that Gadkar is a woman and, hence, the case needs to be dealt with differently.
This is why we revere our judiciary so much, scared to even utter one word against them? So what if she is a woman? She got drunk, drove a car at high speed ON THE WRONG SIDE OF A FREEWAY and killed people. In the US she'd have pled guilty to manslaughter and be doing time right now.

I want to get into the learned judge's head and know why he thinks the fact that the accused is a woman is a mitigating factor. Seriously.

As for getting her license back, that may be a misreporting of facts (I hope it is). The same newspaper DNA reported in September that Gadkar's license had been revoked permanently by the RTO, and that "she will not be able to drive any vehicle for the rest of her life".

To be very honest, THIS is the sort of case the PMO needs to push. Talk about sending a strong message! But instead we get media outrage and impotent fury while the rich and famous laugh their way out of trouble. Every single time.
