Avoidance of the law in India

Inequality before the law in India
Concerning the avoidance of justice by Sathya Sai Baba through his many highly-placed devotees in the legal system and successive Indian Governments, his supporters make much of the fact that he has not been brought before a court (he cannot be brought before any court but an Indian one as he always remains in India). No one who has any knowledge of Indian affairs should be surprised that the rich and influential in India can escape justice much more easily even than in the USA or Europe. Proof of this is put forward by India Resource Center, which contributes to advance the understanding of corporate accountability, human rights, labor rights, social and environmental justice issues. They have posted an article about the Noida murders (see here) which show indisputably that justice in India is a two-tier system and is also very inefficient.
The Supreme Court can throw out petitions the judges do not like without any cogent reasons being given, as in the case of Kamini Jaiswal’s petition against Sathya Sai Baba in 2001 (see an account here) and view the Supreme Court document proving the petition was presented and rejected here. Photos of these judges are shown here:
Another writ petition was rejected by the Sai-biased High Court of Andhra Pradesh (see here )That Sathya Sai Baba had the highest protection is proven by the published letter of a former Prime Minister and Supreme Court judge (see here)!
