SPS Rathore: Molestation, abuse of power, abetting suicide - but no justice done

A 14 year old budding Tennis player was molested by the chief of a Tennis association. Then he started harassing the family when they filed a complaint, leading to 11 fabricated cases against her brother and other cases against the family. Finally the harassed girl committed suicide. In a civilized society this guy should have been sent to the gallows or electric chair. But, not in India. This monster with his political connections became the chief of police and had more ammunition to harass the innocent.

19 years later court finally ruled on the case. The punishment: 6 month imprisonment. You must be kidding, Mr. Justice.
