The question to ask today is who will be held accountable for the incarceration that these 117 suffered for over 2 years in jail. Will the police officers who arrested them on the dictates of Maruti Suzuki company be held answerable by the law?
For the 13 convicted for murder we shall fight we shall win.
The legal defence team is - Sr Adv Rebecca Mammen John, Sr Adv RS Chema and Vrinda Grover with stellar support from Harsh Bora, Ratna Appnender and Tarannum Cheema.
The ruling of the District court after a four-and-a-half year trial is based on flimsy and weak evidence. In the course of the hearings the prosecution failed to establish even circumstantial evidence to show that any of those convicted in any way caused the violence that took place, leave alone the death. The ruling also goes against the forensic evidence and post-mortem report that was placed before the court. Critically, officers of the company, including the one who lodged the First Information Report, who were produced before the court as prosecution witnesses denied they were present at the time of the incident. Some of them even admitted that they were acting under Maruti-Suzuki management direction.
