‘Review bail granted to accused in Aman Kachroo case'

Staff Reporter

NEW DELHI: ‘Roots in Kashmir', an organisation of young Kashmiri Pandits, has expressed resentment at bail granted by a fast track court in Himachal Pradesh to four young men accused of ragging MBBS student Aman Kachroo leading to his death.

“Such decisions inflict a sense of defeat on the common man. At a time when we expected a benchmark verdict, all the accused were let off with no justification at all. This is an unfortunate development which needs serious attention by academicians, law experts and parents,” said Sanjay Peshin, chief coordinator of ‘Roots in Kashmir'.

‘Roots in Kashmir', which was at the forefront of the Aman Movement initiated by the father of the victim, Dr. Rajender Kachroo, to get justice, said the verdict has undone the crusading efforts of the father and will fail to deter the mindset that indulges in ragging. “Aman Movement today is an amalgamation of a quest for justice, of change and of building a healthier atmosphere in educational institutions. Dr. Kachroo launched it because he wanted no other parent to lose a child the way he did,” a statement from ‘Roots in Kashmir' said on Sunday.

“Ragging is a disease which needs to be exposed and countered at each point it germinates. The system by letting off all the accused has failed those campaigning against the ragging menace since Aman's death on March 8, 2009,” said Radhika Kaul.
