Re­ha­bil­i­tate the Hurt Youth

The Economic Times - - The Edit Page -

Apro­pos the Edit, ‘The Jus­tice Sys­tem Stands In­dicted’ (Feb 20), it’s a trau­matic ex­pe­ri­ence for the en­tire fam­ily: fi­nan­cial dif­fi­cul­ties, meet­ing the lawyer’s ex­penses, and the stigma of be­ing an al­leged ter­ror­ist’s close rel­a­tive. Ter­ror cases should be tried on a pri­or­ity ba­sis and jus­tice de­liv­ered in the short­est time. If the ac­quit­tal takes more than two years, the gov­ern­ment should pro­vide not just mon­e­tary com­pen­sa­tion but also re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion. Leav­ing the young to re­cover on their own may take dou­ble the time they spent in hell.
