Jessica Lall Case

For once, Delhi's not ok with insensitively letting things being as they are. The Jessica Lall case has left not just the city but the whole nation angry. Protest marches, SMS campaigns and petitions to the President for re-opening the case continue.

There are many dimensions to the story. Is it that we do not bother to stand by the truth, or is that the system works against those that wish to do so? What is it that makes witnesses go back on their statement - inducements, intimidation or the fact that the cases drag on for years?
