New Delhi, Dec 7: Senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal on Saturday hit out at those who have come out in support of the encounter of the four accused by Telangana police in rape and murder of a veterinarian , saying the “savage Taliban-style justice” will make courts irrelevant.
“To the cheerleaders of: Telangana Encounter. Blood lust vs due process. The savage Taliban-style justice vs the civilised…will make courts irrelevant,” Sibal tweeted raising the relevance of courts in a civilized society.
