    Delayed justice turns meaningless: HC CJ Bindal

    Chief Justice Rajesh Bindal of the Allahabad High Court here on Saturday sought to drive home the malady of delayed justice, recalling an incident in which a man refused to take the compensation 25 years after the death of his son in a road accident and asked the court to keep the money. Justice Bindal narrated the incident while inaugurating the holding of Lok Adalat here and said, “Delayed relief often turns meaningless.” Recalling the case involving a man fighting a case for compensation from a Motor Accident Claims Tribunal, Justice Bindal said after the man was eventually awarded the compensation, he asked the court to keep the money with itself. “Judge sahib, please keep this money with yourself now. I disparately needed it to raise my grandsons and educate them after their father, my son, died, in a road accident 25 years ago. I don’t need the money now because all of them are settled now,” Justice Bindal recalled the man as telling the court.
