LEGAL ARTICLE
JUSTICE FOR JASSICA

All  kudos to Supreme  Court for upholding the conviction and sentence of  life imprisonment for Manu Sharma, the prime accused in the Jessica Lal Murder Case (1999). With this 11-year long voyage viz . "Justice for Jessica" has finally come to its final destination. In 2006, the Delhi High Court wisely stepped in to prevent the   miscarriage of justice allegedly done  by sessions courts'  acquittal of  Manu.  The SC verdict  is a victory for every common citizen who fights for justice. The Indian Judiciary has once again proved  that justice cannot be hijacked by high and mighty. Hats off to Jessica's sister Sabrina Lal who continued her tirade to nail the powerful accused behind the crime. The media and the civil society organizations also deserve due credit for their constant  vigour and moral support which was instrumental in getting accused to gallows of justice. The Apex Court's  dismissal of accused's, senior counsel's allegation of media vitiating the fair trial has once again proved that media only supplements and not supplants due process of justice, though the SC observation to the media of maintaining a distinction between "trial by media" and "informative media" ought to be introspected by every print and electronic media group. In recent   years, it was owing to media's  intervention that conviction in all the high profile cases could be ensured, viz . Priyadarshini Mattoo rape and murder, Shivani Bhatnagar murder, Sanjiv Nanda BMW hit and run case, Nitish Katara murder case, Ansal Brothers in Uphaar fire tragedy, etc .   Surely,  the fourth estate of  democracy has assumed the leading role of a torch-bearer for justice.
