Zee News' crime special 'Andha Kanoon' debuts on 26 November

MUMBAI: Crime sells! And that seems so true about the news channels, who have been, off late, competing with each other to launch crime based shows. Latest is that Zee News will be launching a new series Andha Kanoon, which talks about the loopholes in the legal system.

Starting Friday, 26 November 2004 at 8:30 pm, Andha Kanoon will bring some harassment cases, where general public are being harrased by legal experts, into lime light.

Taking on the big guns, Zee News claims that it will keep a close watch on government, police and judiciary, responsible for the peaceful existence of the citizens of India.

Speaking on the judiciary system Zee News group director Laxmi N Goel, as quoted in a company release said, "Zee News is taking every possible step to create awareness the loopholes in the legal system, due to which people are suffering. Andha Kanoon will bring out several such cases, where people are being harassed during a course of the judicial system."

"Andha Kanoon is a reality show, which aims to reveal the anguish of the victims and bring a revolution in the society to amend certain existing judicial procedures that bring disgrace to the entire judicial system. The programme will take up the issues one by one and propose the solutions respectively,” Goel added.

The programme will deal specifically with bizarre and shocking cases from the records of judiciary, where instead of delivering justice, gross injustices have been recorded in the name of law and justice. All this will be shown through a detailed dramatisation of real life cases of those who suffered, how several laws have become the epitome of crime in the society, how these laws are being misused and why they must be amended for the betterment of society, adds the release.
