LETTER TO EDITOR
It refers to shocking incident of brutal stabbings by a dog-owner and his associates in South-West Delhi killing a youth and severely injuring the other when the victims refused to apologies the pet dog. Such incidents will not finish till a strong fear-psychology is developed for time-bound final hanging crossing all hurdles of courts at various stages is ensured.
Properties of absconding culprits in this case should be immediately confiscated in case they fail to surrender within 24 hours with fast-track court-trial initiated immediately to be completed in a time-bound manner. Appeals at higher courts should also be likewise completed to ensure final hanging of the culprits within maximum one year of committing crime with no mercy shown by President of India.
Only such super-sonic hangings especially of rich ones like in this case affording dogs can drastically reduce cases of murders specially by rich persons affording extra-ordinary delay in justice through costly lawyers. Lawyers should also be united for not taking cases of such murderers. It is also time that norms for pet dogs may be tightened to ensure hygiene like is done in advanced countries with license made compulsory for pet dogs.
