Delhi Police to Reopen Jessica Case

 

Delhi Police Commissioner Krishna Kant Paul said that his organization would challenge the verdict in the “Jessica Lal case.” A son of a former Federal Minister and 8 other accomplices shot dead a barmaid before scores of witnesses and fled the scene. After blotched investigation and delayed justice, Manu Sharma, the accused, drove away smugly in a Government vehicle. Mounting grass-root and positive political pressure has brought a lot of pressure to bear on the police. Paul said that he had written a 2001 report implying that some peers were purposely smudging the case but the police decided not to do anything because it was in court and that could “vitiate the trial.”
