Priyadarshini Mattoo conviction

How believable is the Delhi Police slogan "With u , For u, Always"?
Just now, after ten long yrs, the murderer, son of a high police officer - no less! - has been convicted! The CBI is being lauded but who r they? The same policemen "seconded" from the 'normal' police like the Delhi Police! How many other murderers r there in the country but the victims were UIPs for whom neither the media nor the NGOs nor the public cared to protest in the same effective manner?
Will anyone conduct a "sting operation" to unearth the culprits who r trying to shield the murderers of 1. Jessica Lall, 2. the FIVE pavement sleepers killed by a drunken but "influential" BMW driver on Marshal Tito Marg, New Delhi & 3. Salman Khan who drove his luxury car over another Bandhra pavement sleeper in Mumbai? All these "shielders" and their cheating helpers (among whom surely there will be many policemen/bureaucrats/political thugs in or out of office) should also be punished severely by the justice system, but will they?
With all these skeletons, how does the Delhi Police Commissioner even dare to advertise his slogan "With you...."? What is he doing to prove its validity?
