"Though I know he is the man who committed the crime, I acquit him, giving him the benefit of the doubt." Thus spoke the Additional Sessions Judge G.P. Thareja while acquitting Santosh Kumar Singh, the accused in the rape and murder trial of Ms. Priyadarshini Mattoo.

Priyadarshini Mattoo was a 23 year old law student when she was found raped and murdered at her house in New Delhi on January 23, 1996. The evidence pointed to Santosh Kumar Singh, the son of a highly placed Police Officer, but in December 1999, the judge acquitted him, pointing to serious inadequacies in the investigation.

And not only that! The accused, Santosh Kumar Singh, is now a practicing lawyer in Delhi's Tees Hazari Court.

That is Indian Criminal System for you!

But does that mean we all should continue to stay as mute spectators on the sidelines and let the blind justice wreak havoc? No. Absolutely Not.

We must fight this battle and fight it together. So please stand up for what is RIGHT and make sure that the criminals like Santosh Kumar Singh are not allowed to roam freely and they pay for their crimes.

A group of committed, dedicated patriots are fighting to reopen the rape and murder case against the accused Santosh Kumar Singh so that the final justice could be delivered. To highlight the travesty of justice and demand the reopening of the case, a protest rally is being organized.

Where: INDIA GATE, New Delhi.
Time: 4:30 p.m. IST
Date: 23rd July, 2006

Please join this protest rally to demonstrate your support.
