EDITORIAL

Dear readers,

What use is a legal system the efficacy of which is under serious doubt for any reason whatsoever? What's the point of initiating investigations of any kind when the general perception is that only the powerless can and will be punished, and all attempts would be made to shield the monied and the influential? The faith of the people in the fairness of crime investigations is indispensable for the very survival of the State. And with the Apex Court slamming the CBI for running to its masters for consultation, the credibility of India's premier investigation agency is in tatters, to put it rather mildly.

In a country where people believe that the powerful get away with just about anything, CBI's admitting to having gone to the government to have a review of its report before submitting it to the Supreme Court has dealt a serious blow to the image of the investigation agencies in the country. If the most powerful investigation machinery is not independent of the government, it's not difficult to guess as to how far can an ordinary investigation be manipulated by people with means.

Apart from freeing the CBI from political influence, we need to have a serious look at the police reforms proposed by several experts so as to make crime investigations more thorough.
