Aarushi's murder trial and a tale about India

Avirook Sen's book Aarushi, and the murder trial that transfixed India is worth buying. If this is the way investigations and trials are conducted even in high profile cases, one can only wonder how many innocents are rotting in jail.

If the State does want to come after you, in India, it can do pretty much anything. And often it isn't as though the orders are coming from the President or prime minister, no, the systems have been built in a way - or we have allowed them to be built in a way - that almost encourages crushing of liberties.
