No one wants to join a probe, independent witnesses are rare commodity: Court

Independent witnesses are a rare commodity as no one wants to join a probe, fearing the inconvenience they will suffer in attending the hearings, a Delhi court has observed.The court’s observation came while quashing an order, acquitting a couple found possessing illicit liquor in 2014.Additional Sessions Judge Sanjiv Jain directed the magisterial court, which had acquitted the couple on October 17 this year, to hear the matter afresh by allowing the prosecution to examine all the vital witnesses.The sessions court also noted that the trial court had acquitted the couple of the offences under the Delhi Excise Act as no independent witness was examined during the trial.”It is not the case that no effort was made to join the public persons at the time of the raid. The possibility and availability of a public witness for joining the investigation is a fanciful myth like the meeting of the sky at the horizon.The near you go, the far it becomes and the ultimate meeting point never reaches.”A public witness nowadays has become a rare commodity.No one is ready to join the police investigation either because of the fear of the accused or because of the inconvenience to be suffered in attending the courts,” the judge observed.The court noted that the order of acquittal was passed solely on the basis of the testimony of a police constable, without giving an opportunity to the prosecution to examine all the important witnesses.”The trial court should have given a sufficient opportunity to the prosecution to examine the witnesses and recorded the findings on merits,” it said.According to the prosecution, the accused couple — Seema and Ravi — were on September 17, 2014 found in possession of 12 plastic bags containing illicit liquor, which were kept in a car for sale without any permit or licence near the BRT corridor in south Delhi.The car belonged to Seema.An FIR was lodged and after the completion of the probe, the chargesheet was filed against the couple under the relevant provisions of the Delhi Excise Act.During the trial, the accused had denied the allegations and claimed that they were falsely implicated in the case.The trial court had acquitted them on the grounds of absence of independent witnesses and chances of fabrication of the case property — the liquor bottles.

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Adding a new twist into the Ryan International School murder case, family members and friends of the juvenile — accused of murdering the Class II student Pradyuman — rubbished the theory given by CBI officials and stated that he was a bright student. Not just this, he had received appreciation from this very Ryan International School where the crime took place. Earlier, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) maintained that the 16-year-old boy, accused of murdering Pradyuman, had done so in order to postpone exams and the upcoming parent-teacher meeting, as he was a poor studentAs the CBI began their first round of questioning after a Juvenile Justice Board (JJB) allowed the CBI to question him for three days, the boy’s father also reached the JJB home when officials took him away.Investigation into the Pradyuman murder case has already raised many eyebrows. It may be recalled that earlier the Gurugram police had accused the bus conductor Ashok Kumar and arrested him claiming to have solved the murder. Now that the CBI has come up with a parallel line of investigation, questions are again being asked as to how do they justify their contention that the accused was a poor student.In fact, family members showed a report card of the accused where they said he had been given Grade ‘A’ in the emotional skills category, Grade ‘A’ in Attitudes and Values towards teachers, school mates, value system, schools programme and environment.In fact, the family says, the accused has been given A or B grade throughout Class X which doesn’t justify the CBI theory of him being poor in studies. Family members also debunked the theory of him being “mentally unstable” and “weak.”Relatives of the juvenile also revealed that the family had consulted a doctor on one occasion, as they thought he was not mature enough for his age, but otherwise they said he was a happy and a normal child.”My son can never kill anyone. He is innocent,” said the father of the child.”The boy was not only good in studies but also excelled in extra-curricular activities,” said a relative.It’s not just family, even friends of the accused are in shock. One of the accused’s close friends who would travel with him, said, “There was nothing wrong with him. I was sitting in the same section and we both gave the exam. He didn’t have blood on his clothes and was perfectly fine when we went home together.”

During the probe police have learnt that the accused was involved in similar such instances with other minor girls too.A dark net is a closed group in which the administrator assigns different challenges and if the participant fails to accomplish the task, the administrator pronounces the punishment which also includes sending nude pictures and videos. A 15-year-old girl while playing the game fell into the trap and soon the accused from Gujarat allegedly threatened to leak the pictures and videos on the internet leading to the girl approaching her father and filing a police complaint with the Andheri police.”The accused was traced via the mobile number which was used to contact the minor girl. We have also found the pictures of other minor girls in the cellphone which has been sent for forensic analysis”, said a senior police officer from Zone 10 of the Mumbai police department.”The accused has been booked under the Information Technology Act and under Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act. The minor accused has exploited minor girls in the state of Gujarat and in Mumbai and if other victims come forward we will file furthermore cases against him.”, said the officer.Akbar Pathan, Deputy Commissioner of Police, Cyber Crime, said, “The students should be aware of the risk involved in playing such games and should approach the parents to discuss such issues.

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The special cell of Delhi Police have arrested an absconding highway dacoit from the Kalindi Kunj area in southeast Delhi on Tuesday. The accused has been identified as Sahun (38) of Bishambhara village in Mathura.According to police, the accused is wanted in more than 50 cases of dacoity and robbery on highways across many states. Officials said they were informed by sources that the accused was going to Meerut to meet his friend through Kalindi Kunj.”Acting on the tip-off, a special cell team laid a trap in the area. When the accused arrived there, the police team asked him to stop but he opened fire on them. Police retaliated and arrested him,” said Pramod Singh Kushwaha, Deputy Commissioner of Police, Special Cell.Sahun, popularly known as Sahun Bishambhara, was the leader of Salli Sahun gang. He was carrying a reward of Rs 5 lakh, including 2 lakh each from Delhi and Haryana police.Police officials said the gang was active in highway robberies in Delhi, Haryana, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh (MP), Uttar Pradesh (UP), Maharashtra, Hyderabad and Telangana.Sahun was a truck driver and aware of all the highway routes. “He targeted vehicles through trucks. He parked his truck before the vehicle to stop them. After committing the crime, he fled. He never used mobile phones. To call a meeting, he would use cryptic messages like “we would meet at the place where we had tea last year”. Hence, it became more difficult to nab him,” said Kushwaha.Police said the accused has escaped from police custody thrice. He escaped twice (2009 and 2011) from the custody of UP police. In 2015, Sahun, along with his gang members, escaped the custody of MP police from Nooh. The accused had fired six times on the police. “He is a very shrewd and dreaded criminal.

16-year-old arrested for Ryan student’s murder

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) apprehended a 16-year-old student of Ryan International School in Gurugram on Tuesday in connection with the murder of seven-year-old Pradyuman Thakur in September. The Class XI student allegedly slit Pradyuman’s throat in an attempt to have school examinations and a parents-teacher meeting postponed.The teen student was the one who had informed the school authorities about Pradyuman lying in a pool of blood. The accused has been sent to three days police custody; CBI had sought six-day custody and to treat the accused as an adult in the case.The arrest has raised a serious question mark about preliminary investigation carried out by Haryana police, who had arrested a bus conductor named Ashok Kumar for the crime and even accused him of sodomising the child. “Koi baat nahin (it’s okay),” reponded Director General of Police (Haryana) BS Sandhuput to the latest development.The accused’s father insists his son is innocent. “I have always cooperated with the probe,” he said.”My son’s statement was recorded under Section 164. They called me late at night and arrested my son saying that he committed the murder. My son is innocent, in fact, he informed the teacher and gardener when he saw the child. No blood was found on my son’s clothes. CBI has no evidence against him.”CBI, however, maintains that evidence points to the teen’s guilt. CBI spokesperson, Abhishek Dayal, said, “The Class XI student was detained after inspection of the crime spot, scrutiny of CCTV footage, call records, statements and questioning several people. The accused had carried a knife to school on the day of the crime and used it to kill his schoolmate. He then threw it in a commode in same washroom where Pradyuman was found. The weapon was initially recovered by police in Gurugram (Haryana); it is now with us.”Dayal said the teen was weak in studies and that Pradyuman was a random target. “Had any other child been in the toilet at the time, he would had been the target,” he said.The agency took over the case on September 22 after public outrage and the parents’s insistence that CBI handle the case. Pradyuman’s father, Varun Thakur, said he never believed Gurugram police’s theory that the conductor committed the crime.”From Day One, we had said that the bus conductor was not guilty,” said Thakur, “The sequence of the crime which Haryana police told us was unconvincing.”

Civil society collective releases report; highlights lapses in police’s investigation in Pehlu Khan’s murder

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Months after Rajasthan dairy farmer Pehlu Khan was lynched in Alwar by cow vigilantes, a civil society collective on Thursday released a report highlighting several loopholes in the Behror police’s investigation in the case. The lapses –the report states –allegedly weakened the case against the accused and also let them go scot-free after the alleged murder.In April this year, Khan was attacked by a mob of 200 people while he was on his way home. Before dying two days later at a private hospital, he named six of his attackers in a statement given to the police.However, none of them were arrested. As per the report, in September, the police instead concluded that none of those named was involved in the attack. Those arrested were not named either in Khan’s statement or in the First Information Report (FIR). They got bail despite being charged with murder.The independent report states the police did not book the accused under the stringent, relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code, despite clinching evidence of their involvement in the case and also delayed the filing of the FIR. It states the sabotage began with the FIR. For instance, while the lynching took place between 7pm and 10pm on April 1, the FIR was unnecessary delayed and filed at 4.24am, even though the attack site was only two km away from the police station, the report states. Moreover, despite Khan’s statement, he was not named as the complainant in the FIR. Even the names of the policemen present at the attack site were not named in the FIR. The report states that even though Khan’s severe beating led to his death, the FIR does not invoke Sec 307 of the IPC for the offence of “attempt to murder” which provides for imprisonment of 10 years to life. “Instead, the FIR invokes Sec 308, which only takes cognisance of “attempt to culpable homicide not amounting to murder”, prescribing imprisonment of three to seven years, the report states. It added that despite section 308 non bailable and section 302 added in the charge sheet being non bailable as well, the arrested accused secured bail as the prosecution failed to defend the charges and the arrests at the Rajasthan High Court. The report states that several sections like 120B dealing with criminal conspiracy, 204 on destruction of evidence and 153A dealing with promoting enmity on grounds of religion and section 148 dealing with rioting with weapon, among other important sections were ignored in the FIR and charge sheet filed by the police. This is despite availability of relevant evidences for the sections to be invoked including finding of lathis and destruction of receipts available with Khan for the cattle he bought.The report states that despite four of the six people named by Khan in his dying declaration, the police could not trace the named accused for five months after the incident. “First, they failed to arrest the men even though a police officer had recorded Mr. Khan’s statement at 11.50 p.m. on April 1, less than two hours after the attack. Second, apart from announcing a reward of Rs. 5,000 for information on their whereabouts, the police made no efforts to trace the six and arrest them,” the report states, adding that it is not known if the police conducted any raids, not only at the residences of these accused but also at those of their relatives and friends, as well as at their other likely hideouts.It further mentions that more than five months after the attack, the police not only exonerated every one of the six accused that Khan had named in a sudden move, but also questions why the appropriate legal provisions were not invoked, including attaching their properties and freezing their bank accounts, to force the surrender of the accused. “The police did not even move court for the issuance of warrants of arrest against the men, nor ask the court to order them to surrender before it, remedies available under Sections 82 and 83 of the Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC),” it states.It also states that the police the police and the prosecution tried to negate the Khan’s post mortem report with statements from doctors at the private Kailash Hospital in Behror where he had passed away, who said his death could have been because of a weak heart and also pointed to an X-ray and a USG ultra-sonography revealed that the chest, lungs and abdomen of Khan were normal with no injuries.”The records establish that the police and the prosecution have, through acts of commission and omission, worked from the day of the attack to diminish the enormity of the crime, weakening the case against the accused,” the report alleged.
