"For all of us, it is a matter of comfort that faith in the legal system gets enhanced and strengthened. Every time this kind of inhuman act is made accountable, people who are responsible should feel a sense of reprimand," he told reporter.
He said though there are a number of cases pending in the courts, they are disposed off in a good time.
"Those who wait for justice want to hear that the scales of justice have finally shown that rule of law prevails in the country," Khurshid said.
He refused to make any direct comment with regard to Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi and said, "The kind of arguments that have been put forth to defend the indefensible positions, both morally and politically, I think for that a very clear verdict has come."
