16th December 2012 – The Night that never saw the Dawn – Part 3

Whenever we come across some shocking incident it all of a sudden sends shivers up and down our spine. The cruel incident of 16th December 2012 was certainly one of them. Trust me every time the heading of this blog crosses my vision, it always forces me to think that how aptly it suits in today’s time as well. Yes, the dark night of 16th December 2012 never saw the Dawn.

Ah! India took a sigh of relief considering that finally justice has been achieved in the ‘Nirbhaya’ gang rape case. Everyone around seems to be happy, the courtroom is echoing with the sound of claps, lot of wishes are getting circulated on different platforms because of the very reason that on dated 05th May 2017, the Honourable Supreme court upheld the death sentence passed by the High Court as well as the Lower Court in the said case. A week has passed from that day of judicial pronouncement and almost all the emotional outburst has subsided, so it’s the right time for us to analyse whether Justice is actually achieved in this case or not?

As rightly quoted by Mr. William E. Gladstone “Justice delayed is Justice denied”. Sorry to say, but “Justice has already been denied in the present case” and still we are very proudly celebrating the judicial pronouncement. Mind it this is the situation when the case was taken up in the fast-track court. Now, we can just imagine the fate of all other judicial cases pending before the Honourable courts in our country for years and years. The number of pending cases in the court of law is only going to aggravate the matter and in turn, will leave an impression in the mind of the culprits that they have a free hand to do anything as per their wish.

The time lag in our judicial proceedings could be understood by the very fact that it took almost 9 months to the lower court, 6 months to the Honourable Delhi High Court and 38 long months to the Honourable Supreme Court to pronounce the judgement in the Nirbhaya case. And the culprits still have 3 more chances left to appeal i.e. 1) Reconsideration Petition – A Reconsideration Petition with the Honourable Supreme Court. 2) Curative Petition – If no relief is granted in the Reconsideration Petition then a Curative Petition could be filed 3) Mercy Petition – If no relief is granted against the death sentence in the Curative Petition as well then a Mercy Petition could be filed with the Honourable President of India. (Reference: News article published on dated 06th May 2017 in Dainik Bhaskar, the Hindi Daily Newspaper).

Shame on us that even after such a shocking incidence, which caught the eyes of the world media, we not only missed an opportunity to take strong steps in the area of woman safety but also failed drastically in setting up an example in front of the entire world with a speedy judicial proceeding in such a brutal case. And still, we want to brag about achieving justice in the present case? The hard-core reality is that the victim died a painful death long back, while the culprits still have 3 more options left to prove their innocence even after almost 4½ long years have passed since that incident first took place.

This case truly shows a mirror to our society, and at the same time, unmasks the face of the judicial system in our country. What an irony that in the world’s largest democratic nation, the culprits in a criminal case of this magnitude couldn’t be punished even after almost 4½ long years have passed. We can no more continue to play the game of pointing fingers towards others; rather we as a society have to accept our collective responsibility for such a poor condition of the law and order, as well as, the judicial system in our country.

Herewith, I would like to quote the following paragraph extracted from the second part of this Blog “16th December 2012 – The Night that never saw the Dawn” – Part 2 – Yes, humanity indeed gets killed every time such inhuman act occurs. But, the culprits are not alone to be held responsible for this killing of humanity, rather we, as a society, are equally responsible for all such inhuman acts happening around us. It’s a high time we question ourselves that what learning we took from the past incidents and what corrective measures we took to ensure that no such incidents happen with anyone again. How long will it take for us to realize that today it may have happened with a stranger, but tomorrow it could happen to anyone of us or our family members? Are we waiting for that day when we will be the victim?

Did we actually take any learning from such brutal rape case? NO, the growing graph of rape cases with every passing ‘hour’ clearly shows the condition of law and order in our country. It also depicts the mindset of our society. I would not be wrong in saying that it’s a male dominating society wherein the females of “any age” are considered as a product to satisfy the never-ending lust of inhuman males.

I would like to end this blog with the very hope that we as a society and nation wake up soon. It’s a high time we work collectively towards saving humanity. If we still don’t get shaken up then we should better be ready to witness more of Nirbhaya’s getting raped every now and then around us. It’s an earnest request to every woman, that please stay safe, and at the same time, I urge every man to please give the much-deserved respect to the women and safeguard them from such inhuman who just consider them as a product of flesh and bones to satisfy their lust.

I wish the Almighty give good sense to each one of us.

God Bless!

Bombarding another country with the “Mother Of All Bombs” – Who on earth gave anyone the right to do so?

As soon as I read about the news of the so-called Super Power bombarding “once again” the territorial jurisdiction of another country, without even taking consent of the “elected government” of that very country, then these words from my other blog “A ‘qualified’ apology by Mr. Tony Blair for Iraq invasion – Was it even an apology “in real sense”?”, immediately honked in my mind – “Invading other countries to showcase the world that we are a Super Power is supposed to be the favourite pass time of some of the leaders, right?”. These words aptly fit in today’s time as well. Alas! Nothing actually changed in all these years.

First of all, let me make it very clear that I am not against any ‘legal’ Anti-Terrorism step taken in any part of the world. Do note that the stress herewith is on the word ‘legal’ and invading another country in the name of peace, without even taking the consent of the “peace loving” government of that very country, couldn’t be justified as a legal step, by any stretch. On the contrary, if the government of any country is not “peace-loving” and is actually helping terrorism to breed on its soil, then all the peace-loving countries have every right to take action, without obtaining prior permission of the ruling government of that nation, which apparently doesn’t believe in a peaceful world, but not otherwise.

In fact in my other blog “Yes, I am helping the Terrorists”, I have proposed a Joint Anti-Terrorism model and formation of a Global Special Task Force (GSTF). The prerequisite for this model is the prior permission of the Head of that respective peace-loving country, whose territorial jurisdiction the GSTF proposes to enter. This is the legal way of executing such critical missions. One can’t just decide solely on their own, and, on one fine day, proceed to bombard the land of any other nation, simply to flaunt their military power. This is seriously not acceptable and such one-sided step will never ever be able to achieve the mission of peace if that’s what their ultimate motive is, rather it will create hatred and will prompt other countries to call for a war.

Whoever is silent on United States of America’s (USA’s) recent bombarding on the land of Afghanistan, thinking that this is not against them or their nation, should note that tomorrow it could be against them or their nation as well. Do remember that if you don’t oppose any unlawful act now, then you are accepting the dominance of the countries and rulers who are intoxicated in the influence of power. So it’s my earnest request to each and every peace-loving individual and country to very strongly oppose this unjustifiable act of USA, wherein a lot many innocent civilians got killed and were forced to be a victim of someone’s arrogance.

India is a “Peace Loving” nation and also has friendly relations with Afghanistan, so without fail we should stand by the side of Afghanistan government, as well as, the innocent people residing over there. How could a nation, whose Father was a firm believer of Peace and Non-Violence, stay quiet on this illegal act of bombarding any country with the Mother of All Bombs? If any of us think that staying quiet against this act of USA will help us in building our relations strong with them, then sorry to say but we are living in a fool’s paradise. It’s a high time we take a strong stand against any kind of injustice taking place in any part of the world or else the hammer is going to hit hard on us sooner or later.

Mr. Donald Trump this common man very strongly opposes your step of bombarding a peace-loving nation without their permission. Just because you are the President of a so-called Super Power doesn’t mean that you have all the right to intrude the territorial frontiers of any other nation. In the name of peace, no one is authorized to take such steps solely on their own wish. For your kind information, Super Power is not about displaying that you can intrude any nation and bombard them without their permission.

We all should remember that there is a Supreme Soul up there, who has the real Super Power and in front of that Supreme Soul, our power is negligible. So next time even before thinking of taking such steps solely out of arrogance, keep in mind that we are just puppets in the hands of Supreme Soul and one day our arrogance could be the reason of our downfall too.

Let us all strive together to make this world a peaceful place to live in. Live and let others live peacefully too. I wish that the Almighty bless us with good sense.

God bless you all!

Stay in touch.

Strike a day keeps the Doctor away

It’s said that “An apple a day keeps the Doctor away” but it seems that in the present scenario a new proverb best suits in i.e. “Strike a day keeps the Doctor away”. To testify this, you just need to look around and you will realize that every now and then, there is news about some violent act between doctors and relatives of the patients in some part of the country. The end result of all such violent acts is that the doctors go on a strike when their basic demand for safety is not being heard by the responsible authorities and every time the common man is left to suffer in absence of the availability of doctors in hospitals for treatment.

After all such incidences the doctors unanimously complaints that they are being abused and assaulted by the relatives of the patients, while, on the contrary, the relatives of the patients accuses the doctors of their careless approach in treating the patients. This tension is building up since long and in the recent time, it has taken a more violent form. Now, we as a society have to decide whether we intend to continue with this sore relationship between the doctors and the patients and be a dumb spectator or else do we aim to bring an end to all this by implementing some drastic measures? So let us try to discuss this serious issue in this blog and find out the ultimate solution to this problem.

Doctors are not God but they are the one who cures us and saves our life. I have never seen God, but I am sure if the Almighty is present then two of the most important activities of their Key Results Area (KRA) would be to cure us of all the ailments and save our life. Hence, it would not be wrong on my part to say that “Even though Doctors are not God, but their act is Godly”. Now, with this serious responsibility of Godly Act, accompanies a lot of expectations “from and towards” a Doctor.

In a doctor’s profession, there is no room for any kind of mistakes. Hence, we can just imagine how cautious doctors need to be while dealing with each and every single patient of theirs. Ever tried to visualize that what will be our anxiety level if we have to work in our respective professions, with such thoughts running at the back of our mind 24X7? Don’t you think that most of us will panic or try to run away from such situation? But the doctor’s can’t afford to and neither do so, they are right there fighting with their anxieties and fatigue day in, day out.

Yet, doctors are not machines, they are indeed humans and chances of “unintentional mistakes” are always likely to happen. Many a time, unlike others, doctors don’t even get a second chance to rectify their unintentional mistakes. The doctors are in fact always walking on burning embers. In spite of all these hardships faced at their end what they get in return? Mind it; herewith I am only talking about the honest and committed doctors. Isn’t it expected from each one of us to at least show some courtesy and give them the much-deserved respect? Is it too much to ask for? Forget about showing respect, some of us don’t even think twice before pointing the finger towards the honest and committed doctors as well? Is this the way a civilized society should behave?

Obviously, one can very well counter that it is their duty and the doctors are being paid for their job and that they are not doing any kind of social service. But trust me, to be an honest and committed doctor it takes more than simply performing the set KRAs. Most of the time these doctors have to go out-of-the-way and undertake tasks which are over and above the so-called KRAs. Now, what inspires them to do so? Believe me, it has nothing to do with earning money but the very thought of helping the patients to recover and get well soon ignites the soul of these honest and committed doctors.

Having said all the above things, we still can’t discard the presence of corrupt and careless doctors in our system altogether. And for that matter, there are corrupt and careless professionals in every field. But this doesn’t mean that we have the right to abuse or assault any doctor when we are not satisfied with their work. Whatever may be the circumstances, no one has the right to take law in their hand. Instead, if we have any complaint against any person then we should register the same with the designated authority, rather than be opting for violent means to let our voice heard.

However, time and again, we hear and witness incidences where either the doctors are being abused and assaulted for not performing their duties diligently or else the patient’s relatives complain about being ill-treated/careless approach by/of the doctors. Now a very valid question strike our mind that should this be the way to treat someone whom we consider next to God, and, at the same time, is such behaviour expected from highly educated professionals like doctors?

The reality is that fault is at both the ends. On one hand, we as a society are responsible for not condemning such violent behaviour of the relatives of the patients or for not standing against the mob that is abusing and assaulting the doctors. On the other hand, the few corrupt and careless doctors are actually bringing disgrace on the name of the entire medical fraternity and it is because of them, that at times, even the innocent doctors are being accused and assaulted for something which they were not involved in or for something that was not in their hands. Similarly, many times, it is seen that just because of the careless approach of some of the doctors, patients have to suffer a lot and also there are cases reported where the patients have even lost their life due to this careless behaviour of the doctors.

So what is the resort available for the innocent doctors against such violent acts? Normally in response to such assaults, the doctors often go on strike when their demand to provide adequate security at the workplace is not heard by the responsible authorities, as well as, the government. But is strike the only mean to get their demands heard and met? And the big question is that are strikes justifiable at all, more importantly in fields like medical which affects the life of living beings?

Similarly, who should the patient and their relatives look upon, when a corrupt or careless doctor doesn’t perform their duty diligently? Often, it is seen that the pain-stressed relatives of patients who are expecting immediate response lose their temper because no one is available to attend the patient or answer their queries and eventually the situation gets out of control.

Before we dig into any kind of solution to solve this issue, one thing should be made extremely clear that irrespective of the circumstances, no one has the right to take law in their hand, be it the doctors or be it the patients and their relatives. But does it mean that we are helpless and could not devise a system which keeps mobs out of the workplace and, at the same time, ensures that all those who are responsible performs their duty diligently?

It’s a high time we need a onetime solution to control such chaotic situation occurring every now and then on the hospital premises. If we are not able to control it now, then this situation is definitely going to aggravate in the near future and in turn, it’s surely going to widen the gap between the doctors and the patients and thereby resulting in a sour relationship. All this is ultimately going to affect the treatment of the patients.

Solution – As a layman, what I think is that to control all such issues a mechanism should be developed which results in a win-win situation for both the parties. I suggest the following measures for controlling such unwanted chaotic situation at a place like a hospital, which should be peaceful all the times –

  1. First of all, surveillance and security should be mandatorily available at each hospital premises, without fail. This will help the doctors in treating the patients without being scared of getting abused or assaulted by anyone. This will further ensure that the situation remains under control all the time and in case anyone tries to take law in their hand then such persons are identified with ease and are punished for their acts. This will not only control the situation but also help in creating a “fear of being watched” in the minds of all those who even think of taking law in their hand.
  1. Secondly, a system should be in place which keeps the track of every single activity from the time a patient arrives in the hospital premises i.e. enters the hospital. Do note that this tracking should start once the patient arrives in the hospital i.e. even before the admission of the patient. This will automatically help in resolving some of the major issues raised by the patients and their relatives i.e. the patient was not attended on time or the doctors were not available or were careless in their approach towards treating the patient.

These are very basic solutions and wouldn’t take much time to implement. The only thing that is required is the right intention and willingness on the part of the responsible authorities to resolve this chronic issue. Sooner the better they realize the importance of resolving this issue and take right decisions in this regard. Do note that without bringing some drastic changes in the system this tension is not going to ease up, rather it is going to aggravate with each passing day. So it is my earnest request to the responsible authorities that in the larger interest of the medical fraternity, as well as, the common men they should take the desired steps at the earliest.

I hope that the responsible authorities take this issue very seriously and also take actions to ensure that no such situation occurs in the future. I urge everyone to behave in a civilized manner and never take law in their hands. If you think that someone has deliberately caused harm to you or to someone else then you should register your complaint on the right platform with the designated authority, rather than getting into violence mode. At the same time, I would like to request every doctor that please perform your duty with utmost dedication and keep up the good work you all are known for. Let the doctors do their Godly Act in a peaceful condition and let the society be benefitted from the honest and committed doctors in the right way.

God Bless you all!

The Martyr’s soul will indeed be Proud

Miss Gurmehar Kaur, a 20-year-old student of Delhi University, is being trolled and threatened for opposing one of the acts of Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP). She basically hails from Jalandhar, India and was a part of the campaign run against ABVP on social media platform. Herewith, please be noted that it is being alleged that the members of ABVP were involved in the violence that took place on dated 22nd February 2017 in the campus of Ramjas College, New Delhi. Now it’s for the authorities and the investigation agencies to investigate and reveal the names of all those who were involved in that violent act.

However, it seems that as a “customary act” once again the attention has been deliberately shifted from the main issue to the opposition of that very issue. So, before reaching to any conclusion, it will be prudent for us to know that what this girl was actually opposing. Was her stand in favour of any Anti-Nation activity? Was she opposing any kind of legal activity? Above all what exactly she wanted to convey? And to find the answer to all such questions, we will have to go through the post of Gurmehar Kaur. If anyone with sane mind looks at her post, they could easily figure it out that she was simply opposing any kind of violence in the college. Further, to voice her stand against violence this brave girl openly dared ABVP that she is not afraid of them.

Now, I seriously fail to understand that what is the mistake of this girl in raising her voice against a serious issue? In a country whose “Father of the Nation” was himself against any kind of violence is it wrong on the part of a Martyr’s daughter to raise her voice against violence? Nowadays, how easy it is to pronounce anything as an Anti-Nation activity. If someone raises their voice against any kind of injustice, they are held as Anti-Nation. What kind of democracy is this where one who speaks against violence has to leave the city and those who were actually involved in that violence are still roaming freely in that very city?

Shame on us that in the heat of opposing someone we can fall to such a low-level, that we don’t even hesitate in threatening people from raping them. What kind of society is this where the educated youths are indulging in violence and still they get support in the name of Patriotism? However valid our point may be but who on earth gave us the right to take law in our hands? A democratic nation should have a zero tolerance policy against any kind of violence. Only then we can make our country a safe place to live in.

Surprisingly, the tech savvy Central Government always keeps mum whenever such incidences take place, especially in which people related to their political party are involved. While, at all the other time, the Central Government’s ministers including our Pradhan Sevak are super active on social media platforms. Why can’t the Central Government take a strong stand against any kind of violence and come out openly to oppose all those who were involved in such kind of acts? I hope they know it that they are a People’s Government, not a Party Specific Government.

A Central Minister on this incidence commented that “The Martyr’s soul must be crying”. Mr. Minister, it’s not the martyr’s soul, rather we should be the one who should be crying on such a treatment with a martyr’s family in our country. It is the same nation to which Late Captain Mandeep Singh gave preference over his family or any other thing. It is the same nation for which he gave away his life in the 1999 Kargil war. It is the same nation for which the martyr’s father too served in the armed force. And for all this sacrifice and love towards the nation what he gets in return?

His daughter is not safe in the same country, she is being threatened with rape and murder, she is getting trolled for voicing against violence and above all she has to leave the city for security reasons. Is this the way a martyr’s family should be treated within his own country? Forget about showing respect towards the martyrs, these people can’t even respect the dignity of a female. However, it is commendable that in spite of all the threats the brave girl stands against the sick minded people. Seeing her daughter’s brave stand, the martyr’s soul will indeed be Proud.

I would like to end this blog with the hope that may we always choose a peaceful and a decent way of protesting against anything that we want to oppose. Let there be freedom of speech and expression in a real sense. For the sake of this nation, I urge everyone not to link each and everything with an anti-nation act. I wish that the Almighty give good sense to each one of us.

God Bless you all!

MLA’s husband slapped the Circle Inspector in Kota (Rajasthan) – Isn’t the Police Force themselves responsible for such kind of ill-treatment with their officers?

A recent incidence in Kota (Rajasthan) has once again ignited the “Battle of Superiority” between the Politicians and Police force. This incidence took place on dated 20th February 2017, when the workers of the present ruling party in Rajasthan state i.e. Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP), went to protest at the Mahaveer Nagar, Police Station, Kota (Rajasthan).

Police version – The Circle Inspector (CI) Mr. Sreeram Badesara, was slapped by Mr. Narendra Meghwal, husband of Mrs. Chandrakanta Meghawal, Member of Legislative Assembly (MLA) from Ramganj Mandi. In response to the same, the police have to use batons on the BJP workers in order to control the situation. It is also to be noted here with that a video of slapping the CI Mr. Sreeram Badesara has gone viral in the meantime.

Politician version – The police manhandled the workers of BJP and arrested a few of them. Later, the MLA, Mrs. Chandrakanta Meghawal went to meet the workers at the police station. Mrs. Meghawal stated that she along with her husband and the BJP District Head were first beaten up by the police force in the garden and later in the chamber, as well. Mrs. Chandrakanta claimed that her husband has not been involved in any kind of violence and he only came in between to protect her.

After this violence, FIR has been lodged by both the parties involved. Now the ball is in the court of the responsible authorities to decide that whose version out of the two is correct and who actually was at fault. But it seems as if at present the axe has fallen on the concerned policemen only because five policemen of that police station are sent to the police line. Obviously, the orders of sending these policemen to police line have been issued by the seniors in the same police force.

Now did the senior police officers took this decision in order to conduct an unbiased investigation in the matter concerned or was it a step taken solely out of the political pressure, is something which only the senior officers could answer to. On the contrary, the local police force has come out openly in support of the staff of Mahaveer Nagar, Police Station. Many of the police stations in the city boycotted the Mess and an Assistant Sub-Inspector (ASI) has been reported to have requested for voluntary retirement in protest against this incidence.

Well, there is nothing wrong in supporting an honest person. In fact, we should always stand by the side of truth and, at the same time, protest and raise our voice against all the injustice happening around us. However, the big question is that when a police officer was slapped by the MLA’s husband, the entire police force got united and stood against their colleague, but what would have been their reaction if such an incidence happened with a common man?

Aren’t such incidences happening every now and then with the common men who doesn’t have any support of power, money or influence behind them? Aren’t the innocent victims always being harassed by the dishonest but powerful people? Whose side the “corrupt” police officers are taking in all such cases? Each and every single member of the police force should introspect that what would have been their stand if such an incidence took place between an honest common man and a dishonest powerful person?  Note: The above questions are only for the dishonest policemen. The honest policemen who always perform their duty diligently with utmost honesty should take a bow and keep up the good work.

When the common man pleads in front of the corrupt police officers for justice, don’t they disappoint the victim by taking the side of the powerful person? If yes, then it would not be wrong to say that the Police Force is themselves responsible for such kind of ill-treatment with their officers. It is because of the corrupt policemen that such powerful people get the courage to sit on the head of the entire department and act as if they are the King. It is nothing but the past conduct of the corrupt officials which comes back in the form of such incidences where even the honest officials get ill-treated. So it is for the entire police department to introspect, take learning from such incidences, as well as, take steps to ensure that no such incidence get repeated with the police force in the future.

I would like to end this blog with the very hope that “Truth and Justice should prevail always”. Let us always stand for honesty and justice, even if we have to fight against those who have the backing of money, power or influence. I do wish that there is peace all around and may the Almighty give good sense to each one of us.

God Bless you!

Ruchita Jain murder investigation – Was the approach of investigation officers right in this case?

Disclaimer: This blog is not meant to bring down the image of the Police department or entire investigation agencies. The blogger in true spirit respects the hard work that the Police Department is doing. However, the content of this blog should be taken as learning by the concerned officers, department and each one of us, so that mistakes like these are not repeated in future and the very motive of true justice is actually achieved in the real sense.


Last year, on dated 01st December 2016, a young lawyer named Mrs. Ruchita Jain w/o Mr. K. B. Gupta was brutally killed in broad daylight in her residence located at Flat No. 702, Orbit Apartment – 1, New Bhupalpura, Udaipur (Rajasthan). As per the post-mortem report, she was mercilessly stabbed 17 times with a wrench tool, resulting in serious injuries on her head and body. She died on the spot.

The soul shivers even with the thought that how painful the last few minutes of her life would have been. The loss of someone’s life is irrecoverable and it surely would have changed the life of her husband and their two little kids. This case indeed shocked the entire peace-loving community of Udaipur and left everyone thinking that how safe we all are. For a few days, there was an air of fear and suspicion, in and around the city, especially in the locality where this murder took place. Everyone was coming up with their version of the case or some latest updates on it.

All eyes were finally gazed on the Police Department to crack this case and unearth the culprit, as well as, the motive behind such a cruel incidence. The Sukher Police Station, on dated 22nd February 2017 i.e. 82 days after the incidence filed the 141-page charge sheet with the court. Although the police department and the concerned officers are patting their back for solving this so-called “difficult” case, still there are a lot of questions that has emerged from the working style of the Police Department as is evident in those crucial 82 days.

There were a few lapses on the part of the investigating team, which somehow points fingers on the credibility of the entire department and their working style. Below mentioned 6 points reflects the approach of investigation officers in this case –

  1. The superfast local police officers actually boasted to have solved this case on the very second day of the murder itself i.e. on dated 02nd December 2016, the Superintendent of Police (SP) Udaipur, claimed that they have solved the murder mystery and arrested the husband of the victim on charges of killing his own wife. – Without any solid evidence, against any suspect, is it justifiable to defame them in front of the entire world simply because the investigation agencies have some doubts about their involvement? Was the department in so much hurry to grab the praises that they even forgot to collect any single evidence against the husband before accusing him of being the murderer? Is there any possibility that this was intentionally done so that the actual culprit could get away in the present case?
  1. However, after the above claim by the police department of solving the case, on day 3 after the murder, a new angle came into limelight when one of the residences of the same Apartment, Divy Kothari, surrendered at Fatehpura, Police Station, claiming that he has murdered Mrs. Ruchita. Hence, the police have to release Mr. Gupta (husband of the victim) on account of acceptance of crime by the accused Divy Kothari. – After realising that it was a blunder on the part of the police department to charge and publicly announce the victim’s husband as the murderer, wasn’t it their responsibility to not only publicly accept their mistake but also apologize to Mr. Gupta and his family for defaming them?
  1. Further, the prime accused in this case Divy Kothari was also successful in misleading the police officers by acting so brilliantly that the police officers blindly believed on his side of the story that he was suffering from some mental disorder. Once again the investigation team, solely based on the story served to them by Divy Kothari, almost concluded that the accused was suffering from the mental disorder known as ‘Psychosis’ (loss of contact with reality) and in the influence of the same he killed the victim. – Is it believable that once again without any supporting evidence the officers concerned were eager to reach on to conclusions every now and then in the same case? Was it just a mistake on the part of the department to believe the story of the accused as told by him or was it done intentionally again?
  1. After realising that once again they have made a blunder in believing the claims with plain eyes, the police department got into a thorough investigation which resulted into the fact that Divy was just trying to fool the police officers and thereby mislead the investigation. Further, the team collected all the Forensic Science Laboratory (FSL) evidence “based on the information extracted from the accused”, which resulted in factual proofs to claim Divy as the actual accused in the present case. – Is there any valid reason which such learned officials could provide behind not taking help of the FSL evidence on the very first day of the investigation in a murder case? Is this the normal practice followed by the department to reach on to the conclusion? Isn’t the improper investigation major reason of accused being set free of charge in most of the cases?
  1. Quite surprisingly, even after all these blunders on the part of the department, the Station House Officer (SHO) in charge of the case was reported saying that “It was the toughest and challenging case of his entire life”. (Reference: Report published on dated 23rd February 2017 in Dainik Bhaskar Hindi daily newspaper) – Well, who better than the department people could tell that was this case actually difficult to crack or not? Was it actually a complicated case when the accused himself surrendered in front of the police and accepted that he has murdered Mrs. Ruchita? What was left for the department was to simply collect evidence with the help of the FSL team, based on the information extracted from the accused, isn’t it? Now, was it that difficult to do for such experienced and capable officers of the police force?
  1. Finally, I would like to raise an important point which has been altogether neglected in this case. For your information, a tortoise was found in the house of Mrs. Ruchita Jain and the picture of the tortoise that was clicked by the accused, just before the murder is one of the FSL evidence in the present case. However, there is no mention of the fact that was this tortoise a legal breed that is allowed to be kept as a pet in India or not. If not, then why the officials didn’t lodge any FIR against the responsible person for keeping a tortoise in the house, which under the Wildlife Protection Act is illegal. – Although it is not related to the murder mystery, still it should have been taken care of by the concerned team. In absence of which, we are forced to think that was it sheer negligence on the part of the investigation agencies or were they themselves unaware of the laws prevailing in the country?

At the end, I would like to wish that may the departed soul rest in peace and the culprit gets punished for the offence. I do hope that the investigation agencies work diligently in every case and ensure that none of the culprits is set free just because the investigation done at their end was improper. I would further like to appeal each one of you “To be cautious and be safe” because that is the only way we can reduce the number of such incidences happening around us.

God Bless you all.

Assent to Ordinance on Jallikattu – Opening of a Pandora Box

In yet another suicidal attempt (after demonetisation) the present Central Government has given its assent to the Tamil Naidu state’s ordinance on Jallikattu (a traditional sport involving bull). By passing an ordinance for permitting the celebration of Jallikattu, the Indian Government has opened up a Pandora Box, which is definitely going to increase their trouble in the near future. Just wait and watch while a lot many demonstrations and demands for the passing of such kind of ordinances are on its way, to flood the Central Government from every corner of the country in the near future. God knows who advice Mr. Pradhan Sevak to take such decisions.

In the current scenario, a question does pop up in the minds of many of us that when the Honourable Court has banned an activity and is yet to decide on a serious issue then what was the urgency to pass an ordinance in the matter concerned? Was this move politically motivated or was it taken sheer out of public concern? If at all it was taken after keeping public concern in mind then does this move somewhere exhibits that our politicians think that the Honourable Courts are not bothered about the public sentiments and does not take into account the public concerns before passing any judgement?

Herewith, I would like to raise a very serious concern with regard to the autonomy of the courts. Aren’t ordinances like this nothing but a ‘legalised’ way of contempt of court? Just because there is a right available to bring an ordinance in order to surpass the orders of the courts, is it justifiable to make use of this right in such matters as well? Isn’t it a threat to the very existence of the courts in any country? What is the need of having courts when the government themselves can decide and finalize the case, which is still pending before the court of law? It’s a high time for the courts to take a note of the same and stand for their existence.

The politicians preach us to respect the orders of the Honourable Courts but it seems that when it comes to politics they don’t even think for a second, before going against any kind of court orders. If they actually acted as they preach, then instead of giving their consent on the ordinance, wasn’t it feasible for the “law abiding” politicians to plead in front of the court with their logical points and let this serious issue be decided only by the Honourable Court? If courts can open at odd hours to decide about the hanging of a terrorist then we are in a far better position to be heard and matters with which public sentiments are attached could indeed be decided on a high priority.

I would like to urge that instead of coming up with ideas like banning an organisation which works for the rights of animals, it would be appropriate if we can come up with ideas which would enable us to carry on our traditions, without ‘intentionally’ torturing and harming any of the living beings for our enjoyment. There is always a mid peaceful way to solve such kind of issues, like in the present case it would have been appropriate to conduct the sport without torturing or harming the animals, as well as, applying the utmost safety parameters.

Torturing or causing harm to other living beings, in the name of tradition, could not be allowed at all. If the traditions need to be changed for the betterment of our society then we should indeed be ready for that. Do remember that right to live freely is the fundamental right of every living being and not alone humans. Live and let others live peacefully too.

I wish that the Almighty give good sense to each one of us.
