Justice delayed is justice denied. This is something that we hear so often.
Just imagine if you were in the position of Surajnath Yadav, a farmer in the Indian state of Bihar, who for the past 33 years, has been going to the local court as an accused in a case involving the theft of a pair of oxen in his village.
Thirty-three years later, the complainant, four other co-accused and even the policeman investigating the case are dead but for Yadav the trial continues with the court yet to deliver a verdict.

It is good to see CNN IBN picking this story up and showing it to the wider audience.
Hope Surajnath Yadav gets justice soon.
