Is loot of public money in such a way is legal?
Ans. No, it is not legal.
But in our india, in most of fields of life, there is a loot, the difference may be in the name. Take the example of our judicial system, everyone(including lawyers and justices) in conference and at public place, says that jusitice should be done immedietely, Jusitce delay is Justice denied. Once our ex-Chife Justice of India Sh.k.g.Balakrishan admitted and said that most of the lawyers delays the proceedings. But no one is at help. Take the example of cases u/s 138 N I Act, there are documentary proof of giving loan and in repayment post dated cheques are issued, and whenever they are dishonoured and cases are filed in courts, it takes at least 3 to 4 years, and in these years, accused does not tell anything that he has not taken loan, but only keeps on taking adjournments and getting foreited his bail bond, only to take fress bail, as offence is bailable offence, misutilising of bail process. As It is well knownh, bail is granted becaused no innocent person should be remain in jail, but it is misused to prologing the trial, and everyone is part of this procedure ie. accused,lawyer and judicial officer and staff. What is this, to prolong a trial is not a loot from a bonofide payee. The bonofide payee are pressurised for taking whatever is thrown to him by the accused, by not compensating fully to payee, what is this, is it not a loot ?
There is very little fear in the mind of wrongdoer in our india, and one of the root cause is not working our judicial system properly, that all of us knows, that one of the most reasons of delays is not less staff of judicial officer, but delays tactics of the persons related to judicial system, protection to wrondoer from the persons related to judicial system, knowing very well that many a times, a person is culprit, but tried to get him acquitted on technical grounds, thus encourging the wrongdoer to do more wrongs, because there is a little fear of law in the mind of wrongdoer in our india.
All of us are also silent about the malpractice in our judicial system.
