The Law will take its course.
The Story: An alleged early morning ransacking at a Hotel by CM's son.
The CM (26 Oct): "The law will take its course"
The Hotel's GM (28 Oct): "The ransacking has been videotaped on the CCTV" system in the hotel.
Police (17 Nov): Police to close case No evidence found.
- Has the Law has taken its course?
- What happened to the CCTV footage?
In a country where cases drag on for years, this one is about to be closed in a matter of weeks. We indeed have an example of a very efficient system here.
So, does law run its course on its own?
It always takes the course given to it be Law Enforcers - and never any other.
In a country where the law enforcement takes such predicatable (or unpredictable we must say?) route, we have ministers/legislatures busy enacting (Populist) laws which clearly state: No Evidence Necessary to Arrest. Remember 498A and Domestic Violence Act?
Barely a month after DV Act came into force, we have a woman in full public view accusing here husband of leaving her because of a alleged dating allowance at Wipro, and Azim Premji has been summoned !!!. And to top it - no such allowance exists.
Would a petrol/vehicle running allowance automatically mean that you are going to run amock and cause accidents?
Wonder how such a case was even admitted by the court? Actually its no wonder... at all.
So, if a government employee's wife files such a charge - would the Honourable Prime Minister be made to answer? When bureaucrats and govt. officials are caught taking bribes, sleeping at job - should the HRD Minister be summoned?
Common Sense Please.
