There’s just so much happening in the country that often news just falls between the cracks. The Delhi HC has decided to free (well, he has already served some time) a tutor Ashok Rai convicted for raping his student, because he has cleared and qualified for the IAS while being in jail. Rape, because he had sex with her, promising marriage. The girl committed suicide when he reneged.
I’m confused. What have I missed?? Exactly how does qualifying for the civils clear you of your crime?
And is this what we want for our country? Criminal politicians aren’t enough, that we must go all out and pick up a couple of criminals from jail to fill up the bureaucracy with? Is it any wonder we’re in such a mess?!
I usually have a lot of faith in the judiciary, but I’m beginning to doubt it. On the other hand, the NCW seems to have taken note, which is really good.
