The Lost Case!
I was attending a wedding of my uncle and it was his 3rd marriage. I and my father were there along with other friends of my father. My father's friends asked me what I do and what I study, blablabla.
After all the awkward questions I found that one of the uncles is an advocate Lawyer. I was excited to find out he was a lawyer since I had a lot of questions.
It was dinner time at the wedding ceremony when I requested permission from my dad if can ask his Advocate friend some questions. The advocate said to go on but I don't solve murder cases or CID/Crime Petrol type cases that you might notice on television which stereotype us.
The first question I asked was, "Any case which you lost but you still remember and felt ashamed/bad about it till today?".
He shared a story with me while we both were enjoying our meal about a Pilot of PIA. The Pilot was late to catch on the plane. Yup, we heard about people getting late to catch the plane but this type the pilot was. When he was parking his car at the airport, he accidentally hit a pedestrian. Oppse Dopsie! The pedestrian was recording already, and the mistake was also recorded. The pilot said sorry and rushed to catch his plane. Although it was such a minor injury because live streaming on a social media app that person earned the sympathy of people. The case became news and the person also filed a case against the pilot. Usually, these type of cases gets ignored but this type was a bit serious.
When the pilot was called to the court, he hired an advocate uncle. By the way, the advocate is among the senior lawyers. My uncle thought it was an open-and-shut case since no major injury happened as the car was slow and was parked. The lawyer took the case too lightly but to his surprise victim appeared in court with fake injuries. No matter how much the lawyer tried because of social media the court decided to fine 500 rupees and 1-night stay in prison. The streamer might get more viewers or followers after this but The PIA pilot lost his government job cause an FIR was added to his name forever in the database.
My uncle was a senior lawyer and he knew the client is innocent. Still, he feels it's his fault as he didn't prepare for the case. It haunts him because a person loses the job cause of his poor handling of the case.
What are your thoughts about this case? Do you think it was the fault of the lawyer or the system? What do you think, you would do if you spend a night in jail for a crime that you haven't committed? What would have felt like to lose the job for some views of someone?
