Bloggers give thumbs up to Nithari death penalty, slam CBIFebruary 13th, 2009 - 8:21 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, Feb 13 (IANS) As the death penalties for businessman Moninder Singh Pandher and his domestic help Surinder Koli were announced for Nithari killings, blogs were flooded with comments hailing the sentence and criticising the Central Bureau of Investigation. Some asked that the CBI be shut down to save money during recession”.
“Though justice delayed is justice denied, we need to be satisfied with the fact that at least justice prevails in our country,” an anonymous blogger wrote on Sulekha.com.
Dhiatri, another blogger, hoped that “this (sentence) will set an example that no one can escape after committing such heinous crimes”.
At the same time there was hue and cry about the CBI’s incompetence as an investigating agency.
“Pathetic but truth is that in our country no value for poor man’s life, particularly so, if the justice for poor has to pass through the hands of CBI,” wrote Krishna Sundar on Rediff.com.
“God save country from CBI and its apathy to criminal justice system. CBI means Criminals Bureau of India,” Sundar added.
Another comment from an anonymous blogger read: “Government should kill the CBI agency. It’s good for nothing except to save thick-skinned criminals and politicians. Save Money!!! It’s recession.”
Chris wrote on Rediff.com: “Pandher is guilty as sin itself. The only difference is that Pandher is moneyed and Koli is not! So, the CBI was quick to declare Pandher pure, pious and god-fearing and virtuous, while Koli was instantly declared solely guilty.”
“Luckily the courts have been wise enough to understand the truth.”
A special CBI court Friday sentenced Pandher and Koli to death for the rape and murder of 14-year-old Rimpa Halder, one of the 19 victims in Nithari area of Noida in 2006.
