If this is the state of affairs in Dasna, imagine what goes on in the rest of the country? We're looking at a logistical nightmare. (On Aarushi-Hemraj double murder case)

We talk about Digital India without acknowledging that our systems require reform on a mammoth scale

There is a general problem with police investigation procedures in our country and one of them is the lack of specialised skills

I speak as a lawyer and friend. Individual citizens cannot be entrusted with institutional responsibility of investigating cases. Even in respect to a crime committed to a member of their family, they can only assist the prosecution. The job of prosecuting and cracking a crime is left to the police agencies.

Coming to the closure report which was filed in the court in Ghaziabad in 2010, it was really not a closure report. It needs to be understood that it was couched in a language which was accusatory, which was insidious towards the couple for having committed the crime.

I am a criminal Defense lawyer, it is my job to take up  cases that come to me and defend  people, to the best of my ability. It is  the constitutional right of every citizen to be defended in a Court of Law.

You don’t have to be friends with your client, just defend their right to a fair trial. Their ideology has nothing to do with the case as long as you uphold their rights.

I believe the prosecution, the trial of the Talwars, and the witch-hunt, was a travesty of justice.

What eventually happened was the Talwars had to defend themselves for a crime they never committed, while the real killers were not found.

The freedom movement was led by lawyers—Gandhi, Nehru, Jinnah, Ambedkar. Today, in the US, lawyers have questioned the Trump administration and stood in the way of absolute anarchy, ensuring the rule of law.

In India, lawyers start debating if the accused in Nirbhaya rape cases should be given a defence at all. A lawyer has a constitutional obligation to defend everybody.

The government is very anxious, you know. It is a large investment.

The PM, the Finance Minister, the Planning Commission are desperate for FDI.
