    Indian Judiciary system is outdated now. Particularly Rapists are taking benefit of this week system. Just think about INNOCENT NIRBHAYA RAPE CASE. Her parents are dying everyday by facing the stupid laws. Those 4 criminals are taking benefit of this so called stupid system. This is clear worldwide that those 4 criminals raped and killed that innocent girl but still those wild animals are not hanged. infect they should be burns alive in front of the public within 6 months. They have many rights to appeal in this stupid system. Rapes and killing will be continue if we did not change this Judiciary system. Think about the innocent girls who have been raped and killed and about their parents. Kindly hang those 4 bastard as soon as possible who raped and killed Nirbhaya. Please please ????????????
