Editorial : THE FALL OF THE LAST SENTINEL THE FALL OF THE ANGEL-CORRUPT INDIAN JUDICIARY
the four main pillars of democratic setup in
now, the criminalisation of politics has taken place almost completely in
now, the one & only remaining pillar of democracy in
it is only due to the pioneering efforts of media these scandals have come to light .the judiciary has hidden those scandals in a hush hush manner from the public eye. recently it was reported in " deccan herald " that a district judge of u.p. was acting as a pimp since years & supplying mod girls to politicians. in another report it was stated that a district judge of tamilnadu demanded sexual favours from a woman to give favourable judgement in a case when she refused to do his bidding he allegdely tried to rape her. quite recently, there was a news report about immoral acts of certain high ranking judges in a resort near
i,as a human rights activist have requested various constitutional authorities to provide information about the misdoings of government officials , ministers ,judges & godmen. i didn't even receive the receipt of acknowledgement. i have even tried to file public interest litigations at the SUPREME COURT OF
in my crusade seeking justice for all, i have myself suffered numerous injustices ,my news papers were closed down, i have suffered murder attempts on me , inspite of all these the CHIEF JUSTICE OF INDIA , THE CHAIRMAN OF NATIONAL HUMAN RIGHTS COMMISSION , THE CENTRAL VIGILANCE COMMISSIONER kept mum, didn't do their constitutional duties inspite of my repeated requests . thereby, they have violated my human rights & fundamental rights & have been obstructed from performing my constitutionally provided FUNDAMENTAL DUTIES.
The courts of justice needs evidences to act upon , the public servants don’t give records / reports which in turn becomes evidences , the public servants by taking bribe makes falsed biased interpretation of law , give favourable reports to rich & mighty ( but false reports ). The courts in turn depending on those false reports acquits rich & mighty , whereas the poor suffers injustices for being unable to produce evidences. The courts have the power , authority for ordering participation of public , aggrieved parties in the investigation teams enforcing various laws ( thereby the corrupt acts of public servants can be checked ) , but courts don’t excercise that authority. See how the nexus of corrupt public servants – law enforcement agencies – judiciary works in
TO WHOM SHOULD WE TURN FOR JUSTICE ? WHERE IS PEOPLE'S SELF RULE - DEMOCRACY IN
Sixty years before
The oiling and greasing of these wheels were handled by people who had some or even little experience in maintaining a system to cater the interests of the people. Yet the administration did not buckle and the people trusted in it. Six decades since then the administrative machinery in
The state of affairs in
The union government of India while is busy of custom tailoring a government that could hold power for the rest of its term and probably to return to power for yet another term, their counterparts in the states are engaged in similar exercises within their jurisdictions. For this every cards available are being used. Caste, religion and money are constantly used for gerrymandering administrative decisions. The police, prosecution and judiciary are misused to keep the protesting voices at bay.
The three pillars of democracy - the judiciary, executive and legislature in
A court system that had responded by appreciating public interest litigations have now stooped down to a stage where the courts itself are asking the public to settle disputes outside the court. The courts in
More and more the ordinary people shy away from approaching the courts in
The court that once said the state has a duty to provide adequate housing to the people in the Bombay Municipal Corporation case has taken u-turn by justifying forced evictions in its recent judgments. While the courts have a change in attitude towards addressing the ordinary people’s concern about state neglect, the courts itself are victims of neglect by the state. Thousands of cases are pending decision before the various courts in
The executive also have demonstrated through their lack of action and brute intervention that they are no more people centric. A direct result of a failing executive machinery is the alarming number of starvation deaths in
Yet another limb of the executive, the police and other law enforcement agencies are used by the state not as a segment of the service sector, but as an agency to impart fear upon the people. The extra judicial killings by the armed forces in Manipur and the clampdown of human rights work in states like Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh and
Corruption in public life has not hit such high levels at any point of time in
What cost has
While the middle class and the neo-rich community tries to fortify their riches and their holds in places of authority, a major portion of the country’s population suffer from acute poverty and starvation. With its abundance of resources and possibilities
Beyond the landscapes of crowded cities and special economic zones the rural
APPEALS TO THE HONOURABLE CHIEF MINISTER OF
Dear Sir ,
Victims: Residents of about 100 houses in
Alleged perpetrators: Police officers stationed at Narkeldanga Police Station
Place of incident: Rajabazar Canal – Canal East Road
Date of incident:
I am writing to you to express concern about the case of illegal eviction reported from
I am informed that the police officers used force to keep the residents at bay during the operation. I am further informed that the police officers acted on their own evicting the people since there were no court orders or any other directives from the government to evict the residents from the locality. It is alleged that the police to evict the residents had set fire to the belongings of the residents, a process in which several of the residents lost valuable documents and other belongings.
I am concerned about this case and therefore urge you to intervene to make sure that if the eviction is found illegal actions be initiated against the police officers responsible for the incident.
I am also concerned about the increasing intolerance of the local police to the minority community in
Dear sir ,
1. Mr. Sirajul
2. Ajarul Sana, a boy aged 15 years, brother of Sirajul above
1. Mr. Rabindranath Paul, Police Constable number 4269, stationed at Baranagar Police Station, Kolkata,
2. Mr. Badal Chandra Mondal, Police Constable number 3498, working along with Rabindranath
3. The Officer-in Charge of Baranagar Police Station
Place of incident: Baranagar Police Station
Date of incident:
Victim: Ms. Shefali Pailan, aged about 40 years, wife of Mr. Dinanath Pailan, Mondalpara, Garfa, 24 South Parganas district, West Bengal
Alleged perpetrator: Officer-in-Charge of Purba Jadavpur Police Station, 24
Place of incident: Garfa, Mondalpara
Date of incident:
I am writing to you to express concern about two cases that I have been informed about which shows the nature of local policing in
I am informed that the police officers registered a false charge against the brothers and produced them before the local court from where they were released on bail. I am informed that even though Ajarul was a minor, he was produced in the regular court, though the law mandates that he should be produced before the Juvenile Justice Board. I am also informed that a police officer slapped Sirajul on his face.
Regarding the second case I am informed the victim Ms. Shefali was detained overnight at the Purba Jadavpur Police Station on the basis of a complaint filed against Shefali by her employer regarding a suspected theft. I am informed that the police officers were also pressurizing her to confess the theft which Shefali refused.
I am informed that Shefali was later released due to the intervention of local human rights organisations.
I am concerned about the very nature in which the local police behaved in both the above incidents. Apparently these two cases being from two different police stations in the state, the incidents also reflect the general nature of the police in the state. I am concerned that in both cases the victims were poor and they are reportedly having no means to complain.
I am also concerned that in Shefali’s case she was detained in the police lockup over night on the basis of a mere suspicion and a complaint lodged by her employer. It appears that police in
I therefore request you to intervene in both these cases and order an investigation into the alleged incidents. I also request you to take appropriate actions so that the conduct of the police officers named above are investigated and if found guilty of not following the law, to pay compensation to the victims named above for the sufferings caused to the victims by the police.
Your’s Sincerely ,
AN APPEAL TO HONOURABLE CHIEF MINISTER OF UTTAR
Dear Chief Minister,
Persons affected: The lower caste community in Shankarpur village
Location: Shankarpur village, Chiraigaon block in
I am disturbed to hear of the appalling living condition of lower caste community in Shankarpur village in
I am informed that several complaints were filed by the villagers against the village head against which no action was taken by the district administration. I am also informed that the Village Secretary and some officers from the local Block Office are helping the village head in his deeds.
I am also informed that as of now about 47 families are facing acute starvation in the village and that all these families belong either to the scheduled caste or the scheduled tribe. I am further informed that it is difficult to complain against the village head since so far none of the complaints made against the village head was taken up by the local police. At the same time whoever complained was threatened by the village head.
I am informed that a local human rights activist Mr. Harischandra Sonkar, was threatened, verbally abused and assaulted by the village head and his son since he had complained against the village head.
I therefore urge you to take immediate steps so that the 47 families who are denied food and ration in Shankapur village will receive rationed food grains at the earliest. I also urge you to request the local police to investigate the complaints filed against the village head of Shankarpur Mr. Sundar Yadav and his son Mr. Vinod Yadav.
