Neelam Katara's fight continues

New Delhi: After five years, Neelam Katara's fight for justice for her murdered son Nitish is continuing despite the media attention and public outcry. Friends, family members and those supporting her cause gathered at her house here on Saturday to remember him on his fifth death anniversary.

Gentle strains of Santoor were playing in the background in an apt musical tribute to Nitish, whose portrait stood in a corner of the lawn.

Among those assembled was Chaman Lal Mattoo, the father of murdered law student Priyadarshini Mattoo, and Sabrina Lal, the sister of slain model Jessica Lal.

Urging for speedy justice, Nitish's mother said ``courts should deliver verdicts quickly so that people do not have to wait for longer periods.''
