The Court fo Last Resort
Many of such persons in jail belong to minorities who have been accused only on suspicion and on pre-conceived notions that all persons of that community are terrorists. Whenever a bomb blast or such other terrorist event occurs, the police often is unable to trace out the real culprit, and yet it has to show that it has solved the crime. Consequently very often the police rushes to implicate and charge a large number of youths of that minority community on mere suspicion, whose bail application is very often rejected and consequently they have to spend several years in jail. In such matters either the police often fabricates evidence against them to justify their acts and secure conviction, or the cases result in acquittal of innocent accused persons after they have spent several years in jail.

Editorial - Mr. Manish Arora
Taking a human life is not easy. Therefore, due care and adequate caution has to be taken before an individual is deprived of his or her life by the State. If the State delays execution inordinately for one reason or the other, the delay must be counted in favour of the prisoner because living under the shadow of death is a lot worse than dying. That has been the position of law so far. However, the Apex Court seems disinclined to allow this beneficial reading of the law to come to the aid of those sentenced to death for committing acts of terror.
Hotel Key Cards - Hemant Gade
When you hand them back to the front desk your personal information is there for any employee to access by simply scanning the card in the hotel scanner. An employee can take a hand full of cards home and using a scanning device, access the information onto a laptop computer and go shopping at your expense.
