It was a week of high profile crime trials in India. The Bombay High Court acquitted
actor Salman Khan of all charges in his 2002 hit and run case on grounds of 'lack of evidence'. The verdict polarized opinions while the judge himself had some words of advise
for the media for conducting a trial of its own. In Kolkata, a sessions court
found all 3 men accused in the infamous Park Street gang-rape to be guilty and sentenced them to 10 years in prison. The verdict, however, came 8 months after the survivor, Suzette Jordan, passed away from cancer.
