Delhi gang-rape: Eye-witness friend takes jibe at fast-tracking rape cases

This sounds illogical that fast track court is being set up. As if the other courts are slow track. People should (always) get speedy justice, especially in such cases, (about) which you can't even hear, he said.

The friend of the Delhi gang-rape victim, also the eye-witness to the distardly attack on the 23-year-old paramedic student that claimed her life, has sought a speedy trail into the matter.

Demanding that the case be wrapped up within three months, he said at Lucknow's Amausi airport on Saturday evening, "All we want is that the case is finalised as soon as, possible say, three months. Now the case is being fast-tracked, everyone is doing his job. Let's leave this on them."

Pointing at the slow pace of disposal of cases take across the country's courts, he took a jibe at the notion of fast-tracking of rape cases. He said, "Courts should work to ensure that perpetrators of such crimes are brought to book as soon as possible."

Demanding speedier justice for all, he added, "It sounds illogical that fast track court is being set up to hear this case. Speedy justice is important in cases especially such as this, most of which never reaches the public domain."

Critical of the long wait in court cases, he said, "All courts should be made fast track and tackle cases to deliver justice to the people at the earliest."
