BTW: Better late than never, Hindu covers story of 3 corrupt BCI members jailed

Just FYI, more than one month after a CBI court convicted three Bar Council of India (BCI) members to jail and after a PTI report on the judgment, The Hindu on 25 August 2016 is now the only mainstream media outlet (other than http://www.livemint.com/Politics/oS1IH3Hf1bc5dSMmD4fYVP/Bribery-case-exposes-the-rot-in-legal-education.html Mint) to have done a news story:

Sentencing Raju Dhanapal Raj, chairman then Vice , Milan Kumar Dey and Rajinder Singh Rana, then members of the Bar Council of India; and professor Yash Pal Singh, Additional Sessions Judge Anju Bajaj Chandna said: “Instead of upholding the spirit and integrity of law, the convicts indulged in rampant corrupt activities to enrich themselves. They failed to observe professional responsibilities and diminished the image of this profession.”
