Letter Published in The National UAE on 22Feb 18Swift justice is needed in India

I write in reference to your story India mob drags suspected child killers from police station and beats them to death (February 20). This tragic incident happened in India's north eastern state and the mobs took the law into their hands, punishing the suspected killers. On the one hand, this incident should be rightly condemned and on the other hand it should be noted that the mobs are getting angry because the Indian judicial system is very slow to punish offenders. Frustration and mental agony are the main factors that account for this act. Judgment should come quicker so that mobs won't act like this.
