The Delhi high court has convicted Santosh Singh, the accused in the high profile Priyadarshini Mattoo murder case.

Santosh was earlier let off due to lack of evidence.

The judge had then said, "Though I know he is the man who committed the crime, I acquit him, giving him the benefit of the doubt."

So, has the public outcry and the media attention helped Mattoo get justice at last?

Or, is it too late coming?
