I didn't remember much of the case. It's been too long and as expected, I had completely forgotten about Jessical Lall until I saw this headline in Indian Express.
And here is what a former Chief Justice feels.

Jessica's dad is suffering from amnesia and can not understand the verdict.
Maybe it is better this way.

Searching the net for more information on this issue, I found this article by Anjali Basu.

It is pointless blogging about it. Fifteen days down the line, something else would take up print space and we'd go "Jessica who?". Shouting from rooftops would not bring back Jessica. Nor the justice her family was denied.

Life seems so pointless.

Yeah, it all seems pointless. In Bangalore, the Lokayukta catches several corrupt officials in the act, with sting operations. But 99% of them are acquitted due to 'lack of evidence'. Hello!? What about the lakhs and lakhs of cash you find in their kitty?
