Our crimal justice system should develop fast tracks to deal with criminals. Once a person is found to be guilty beyond doubt there is no point in delaying the execution of punishment. The system of sentncing for life means it will hurt the public interest to spend their money on the upkeep of criminal providing boarding and lodging for the criminal. This will also lead to misappropriation of money budgeted for his upkeep that will only provide benefit to the prison officials and their superiors in eternity.

It is time to bring strict accountability for the higher Judiciary.
There is no rule fixing time for clearing mercy petitions. If the
delay in deciding the mercy plea is to be considered as ultra to Art.
21, then the Supreme Court should have given interpretation of Law on
Mercy Plea or should have issued "Judge made Law" in this regard as
done in the appointment of Judges case of 1999. According to Justice
Thomas delayed rejection of Mercy petition is sought to be a double
jeopardy. Suppose if the President had ordered pardon to these
convicts then will he advocate paying compensation to them for keeping
them in prison so long? If the Judiciary Accountability Bill is in
force can any of the serving or retired Judges will make such public
comments or opinion?

It is the most nonsensical argument that had these people been sentenced to life imprisonment they would have been eligible to parole after 14 years of jail term.This fourteen year life concept is not only ununderstandable but makes no sense.The sentence could as well have been for that term instead of the misnomer of life
right at the time of sentencing.This judge needs to justify Guru's
hurried execution to his family.
