It is hardly fathomable that the Indian legal process took 18 months to indict a person who committed mass murder on live TV. The excuse that Indian legal process is typically slow - should not apply to such an open and shut case.

Why could not the police / National Security Guards or whosoever nabbed Kasab kill him on the spot?
