Justice at last?

28 men (?) have been pronounced guilty for the gruesome killing of three girls in Dharmapuri. The girls, students of the Tamil Nadu Agricultural University, Coimbatore, were caught when their college bus was set on fire following the conviction of Jayalalithaa in the Kodaikanal Pleasant Stay Hotel case.

The incident happened way back in 2000. After seven years, justice has been rendered. But, I dont think, this is the end. Appeal after Appeal will happen & the case will go on for eternity. But atleast some solace for the victim's parents.

Incidentally, Madras High Court had actually ordered the case to be transferred from Krishnagiri to Salem after all witnesses had turned hostile. Wonder what would have happened if it had continued in krishnagiri?
