Jasmatbhai case
The  sentence  for  the  killer  of  Jasmat  Bhai  Patel  is  a  travesty  of  justice,  and  I  would 
expect Indian organisations and ethnic media to make some noise about this stupidity in 
New  Zealand’s  justice  system.  This  is  a  matter  of  concern  for  all  Kiwis,  and  issues  have 
From the Editor already  been  raised  by  the  Sensible  Sentencing  Trust.  Hence,  we  Indians  need  to  join  in 
this  chorus.  I  am  tempted  to  ask:  is  life  so  cheap  in  NZ?    As  somebody  who  covered  this 
Sentence adds insult to injury event  as  a  reporter,  visited  the  family  and  attended  the  funeral,  I  find  this  sentencing  of 
three years as shameful and a big joke on the NZ justice system.
The Indian community’s disappointment and disgust at the sentence handed to the  ­ Thakur Ranjit Singh
man who attacked senior citizen Jasmatbhai Patel that led to his instant death in a 
To Sir with Love 
mindless road rage incident on April 7 is completely understandable. The accused
