What do you think abouth the Death of Asthana in Jail

what do you think about the death of Mr. Asthana in the jail is natural death or suicide or murder?

I think it is a murder becasue some persons  want to hide the secreats of the case so some one was murdered him

Whether the death is suspicious or normal is the moot question now. But I feel that unless we have a mechanism of speedy trial, the survival of key witnesses, accused etc till the case attains finality is not assured. Irrespective of his death, the guilt should get punished as he is only an accused and the prosecution should be able to prove the case with the help of witnesses and documents.

 Many undertrials die in police lock up and many die in jail. R.R. Patil said that 26/11 attack was a small and common incident. 

These deaths are also common and small things in a vast country like India where Police Raj rules.

 Why the SC should be exercised in this case? Because of PF scam? Many die in police lock up and jail and no body takes notice.

 Five minutes ago on the Internet:

The incident occurred at about 10am when deputy general manager of RICO Auto, Sanjiv Arya was entering the plant in a van under police escort, senior vice president (HR) of RICO Surender Singh said. 

The enraged workers stopped the van, pulled him out and beat him up despite the presence of the police, he said. 

Who is seeking police protection?

without knowing the real facts of the death and proceeding adopted by prosecution and lackness of jai authority and also without any forensic report, nobody can say anything. Because it is a high profile matter suspescion can not be denied.  I think judiciary itself should enterfere in the matter and should protect the image of our Judicialsystem to win the belief of public in general. Because still the general public have faith in clean judicial system. If  judicial officers are envolved  they should be punished harshly to convey a unique meaasge in society.

                                                                    The question still roaming in the minds of general public if lower cadre employee have been arrested why the higher officers not yet.

 Real facts? Million dollar question. We are still toying with the forensic reports in the case of Aarushi.

Anil Agrawal (Retired)     22 October 2009

 Since there is no alternative, we have developed enormous faith in our law and judiciary. Dear lawyer friends, please tell honestly. Have you had the occasion where you were either the complainant or respondent, had to engage a lawyer and what has been your experience.
