The Centre will soon amend the Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC) to empower victims to appeal against a court order acquitting an accused, or convicting the accused of a lesser offence.

“Under the amended Section 372 CrPC, the victim will not need the permission of any law enforcement or prosecuting agency to appeal a court order,”. Till now an appeal can be made only if the prosecution decides so.  The 2 amendments to CrPC Sections 41(A) and 309, which barred police from arresting an accused for an offence that carries a maximum punishment of seven years without first issuing him/her a “notice of appearance”. And all this has gained momentum after the Ruchika case which is doing the rounds now in media...So, what do you think people, Is this enough to nail the acquitted?

I think yes, atleast it will give much needed boost in these cases & also central govt needs to notify the ammendments of CrPC for prevention of abuse,misuse of law, if the centarl govt would withddraw the immunity to its officers it would help create an fear psychosis for them and bar them from committing such crimes, all this is injustice is happening because the system in the country was subdued till now and many high officials in the country were getting

No we do not need change first. We need the implementation of laws first. Once they are implemented properly then we can think of change. How will change be helpful if pre-existing laws are also not implemented?
