The Economic Times - - The Edit Page Longer Lifespan -

Apro­pos ‘Miss­ing Feed­back Loop’ (Feb 22). A long trial re­sult­ing in the ac­quit­tal of an ac­cused not only de­stroys his per­sonal life but also af­fects the rep­u­ta­tion of the gov­ern­ment ad­versely. As such, puni­tive ac­tion against those re­spon­si­ble for ad­verse ver­dicts should be treated as a part of the jus­tice de­liv­ery sys­tem. In­ten­sity of pun­ish­ment should fol­low de­pend­ing on the rea­sons for shoddy in­ves­ti­ga­tion and pros­e­cu­tion. Within the purview should also be the ob­jec­tiv­ity of judg­ment in ques­tion.
