View Full Version : Do you agree with the court verdict in the Neeraj Grover homicide ?
July 1st, 2011, 01:27 PM
The verdict in the Neeraj Grover case is out--Maria Susairaj has been convicted , but has been sentenced to three years of jail , which she has served already ; so it means she is free.
Emile Jerome has been given 10 years jail . The media and neeraj grover's parents are creating a furore , saying that Maria being set free ( though after 3 years of jail ) is letting her off the hook . They are claiming that she planned the murder--and that even the sentence of 10 years for Jerome is too less .
Ashdoc feels that the verdict is fair enough .After all , it was a crime of passion , not planned murder . Jerome came to Susairaj's house to find Neeraj naked--obviously , he had just had sex with Susairaj . Seeing this , Jerome lost his mind and murdered Neeraj . Susairaj was forced by Jerome to help him cut Neeraj's body to pieces --she did it under duress . She is innocent .
Even Jerome is not fully at fault--which man would not lose his mind and not go to the point of murder seeing another man fully naked and just having had sex with his wife-to-be ?? ( Jerome and Susairaj were engaged )
Nobody on the other hand is finding fault with Neeraj , who was using the casting couch to satisfy his sexual needs .
Any counterview ??

After reading the media details and a simple yet good explanation by swami here (http://www.echarcha.com/forum/showthread.php?t=39028), I think the female got a slap on the wrist. The navy officer got 10 years for a murder.
Well, it may sound a very light sentence, but then again I cannot totally become emotional and wish for a harsher sentence. Why? Its the prosecution's job to ensure that the case is air tight and the sentence meted out would be commensurate with the crime. If they fucked up, then we cannot convict just because what the perpetrators did is wrong and morally heinous.
Law has to be allowed the freedom to work ONLY based on legal process and laws established. We cannot allow trial by media or trial by emotion.
So on a non legal level, the sentence is very less, but on a legal level, the court did what is prescribed in the law books.

Maria and Jerome apparently are from the minority community, and our Judiciary is always very lenient towards them.
Sanjay Dutt had AK-56, and yet justice Kode interpreted it as having a pistol for one's protection. For AK-56, the quantum of punishment is totally different.
Ah, if they were Hindus, we'd have seen the nastier side of our Judiciary.

Whether the punishment was fair or not is a legal matter, but our TV producers, just like Ram Gopal Verma, want to capitalize on this tragedy!
`Big Boss` to approach Maria Susairaj?
Mumbai: If reports are to be believed, Maria Susairaj might be approached for the next season of `Big Boss`.
A day before, filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma had expressed his desire to make a movie with the actress on the controversial case. According to sources, several production houses have been thinking of approaching Maria for their shows.
In the past, `Bigg Boss` has had controversial celebrities like Monica Bedi, Rahul Mahajan, Raja Chaudhary as participants. The producers of the show have now shown keen interest in Maria and would like to have her on their show.
If rumours are to be believed, `Bigg Boss` Production Company is planning to offer the wannabe actress a whopping sum of 5 crores!
Going by her current status, Maria might just take up the offer to improve her image in front of the public, the way Monica Bedi did.

Is ke chakkar me literally kiske tukde tukde ho gaye..
Rules about women and love and relationship which men forget and this Navy guy also forgot.
If you find your woman or fiancee or wife-to-be or girlfriend in the arms of someone else, you have to come to instant realization that
1) She is long gone
2) She is not coming back
3) She is not worth it
4) Best policy is to move on.
I understand rage and anger and heartbreak and all that, but men forget these four things and the most important of them all 'No unfaithful woman is worth killing for'.
Now this Navy guy got a 10 year sentence, and I dont care if its legally the right punishment or whether he should have been punished for more years, etc. The point is that this idiot has screwed his life over someone who is not worth it.
Now this girl, will get her proverbial 15 minutes of fame, and thats the end of it. She will be on her way, possibly with a small career on TV or in films, while this bright young Navy guy will rot in jail. Over what? An unfaithful two timing woman?

The court should have given life in prison to both of them.

The same type emotions are more-or-less involved in 'honor killings'. In fact, here only Maria was involved, there the izzat of the entire casteis involved.
So, the lower courts are endorsing khaps.

Forget it. Maria is a woman. In India (actually in most parts of world), women can do whatever they want and get away with it.
