Altaf: politics & law

September 23, 2016


THIS refers to the article ‘Politics, not law, likely to decide murder probe’ by (Sept 16). We had always been told by the British that their police were completely independent and that no one, not even the prime minister or the queen could influence the course of any investigation by Scotland Yard.

Now it seems that we were misinformed. Apparently, India has a great influence in such matters, which is why the writer says that it will be politics which will decide if the murder and money laundering trials will ever be held.

If this can happen in the mother of all democracies, why should we be surprised if it happens in undeveloped countries?
