In the Chhawla gangrape-murder, the Supreme Court had ordered the release of the accused in the first week of November. The court had said that the prosecution could not present sufficient evidence. The mutilated body of the victim was recovered three days after the incident. Deep wounds were found on the body. The lower court had convicted three accused on this incident.

11 years ago in Chhawla, an 18-year-old girl was abducted openly by the poor. In the moving car, those savages kept scratching his body for hours. Between the tight palms on the mouth and the burden lying on the body, the screams kept suffocating, the breath kept stopping. Even his soul yearned, but the soul of these poor people did not waver.

Instead of issuing any order to take concrete action against these negligent policemen who have become the enemies of justice, the court said in its decision that the courts take decisions based on the evidence and not by emotions.
