The Syed Modi murder case

When Syed Modi, one of India's best badminton players, was murdered (in 1988), I distinctly remember being disappointed, because it seemed from what I'd read, that in spite of the evidence, the accused were going to get away scot free. Now, that is becoming a reality. The case against another of the prime accused was dismissed a few days ago.

I don't know if there was sufficient evidence to convict the accused or not, or even whether the accused were guilty. What irks me is that we are not able to carry out a conviction for a murder, 16 years after it happened. That's sad.

It says volumes about India's justice system.
