The CJI, speaking at an event in Jodhpur on Saturday, said, "Recent events in the country have sparked off the old debate with new vigour. There is no doubt that the criminal justice system must reconsider its position and attitude towards laxity and eventual time it takes to dispose off criminal matters." He added that, "But I don't think justice can ever be or ought to be instant. And justice must never ever take the form of revenge. I believe justice loses its character of justice if it becomes revenge."
Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu on Sunday expressed sharp disapproval of Congress lawmaker Rahul Gandhi's remark that India has become the rape capital of the world. Speaking at the convocation ceremony of Symbiosis International (Deemed University) in Pune, Venkaiah Naidu, without taking Rahul Gandhi's name, said that people are maligning India's image on the international level, adding that incidents of rape bring shame to the country.
