Patiala, September 13

A former Judge of the Delhi High Court deliberated on “justice” in the context of judgement in Karan vs State NCT of Delhi during a discussion session organised by Centre for Criminology, Criminal Justice and Victimology (CCV), Rajiv Gandhi National University of Law (RGNUL), yesterday.

Justice JR Midha, former Judge of the Delhi High Court, talked on the progressive impact of a judgment during the lecture titled “Reflection on Emerging Victim Jurisprudence”.

He said: “Victims are unfortunately the forgotten people but courts and criminal justice system must consider harm/suffering and recompense them.” He highlighted the fact that computing compensation for pecuniary and non-pecuniary loss was essential to provide some solace to the victims. “Justice,” he said, “is incomplete without compensation. Though no monetary compensation can relieve anguish of the victims and their dependants, it enables the victim to start life afresh”.
