Big guns free; lower rank officers, constabulary face music - By RK Misra Nov 19,Counterview Ghosts from the past have an uncanny way of turning up in the present with immense potential to blight the future of the most powerful. The deposition of Azam Khan, an Udaipur based small time gangster before the CBI court has brought to life the most speculated and worst-kept secret of the time - that the murder of the up and coming Gujarat BJP leader was a political extermination at the behest of some of the most powerful in the land of the Mahatma.

Impunity for participants in pogroms has been the norm, and successful prosecution the rare exception.
