Punishment to officers: SC raps government, Army for being too lenient

 

The Supreme Court on Tuesday came down heavily on the government and Army for handing out “pittance” in punishment to the army officers, who sold their non-service pattern (NSP) weapons in border districts of Rajasthan.

A bench led by Justice H L Dattu questioned why the authorities, which sacked officers for drunken brawls, let off the erring officer very lightly for something as serious as selling weapons in breach of the rules.

The court sought a response from Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi as to why the court martial proceedings be not quashed and officers be re-tried.

It also asked as to why similar inquiry into alleged sale of NSP weapons by Army officers in other eight commands of Army should not initiated.

Youth dies from stab wounds in South-East Delhi… after police delayed medical treatment to question him 

 

The lackadaisical attitude of Delhi Police has been exposed yet again when a youth succumbed to his injuries recently in South-east Delhi’s Dakshinpuri area, owing to a delay in medical attention.

Video footage of the incident showed a police officer, who was present at the spot, questioning the victim instead of rushing him to a hospital.

The accused Ashu stabbed Raju multiple times and left him bleeding on the busy street on Tuesday.

The incident took place on Tuesday afternoon in the Dakshinpuri area, police said.

According to sources, Ashu and Raju were well acquainted with each other earlier. However, their relationship began to sour over some monetary issues.

On the fateful day, a heated argument broke out between Ashu and Raju when the former brushed past the victim on his bike, as per police reports.

An enraged Ashu whipped out a knife and stabbed his estranged friend multiple times.

Locals alleged that police reached the spot and questioned him instead of rushing him to a hospital.

However, Raju’s mother had a different story to tell.

“My son was having food when a boy called him. While leaving, Raju told me that he would be back in a while. The incident took place when my son tried to save a child who was being thrashed by somebody. When he tried to save that child, the assaulter attacked and killed my son. There was a policeman at the spot, but he did not come to the rescue of my son,” she alleged.

“Raju was attacked with a pair of scissors and a knife. He pierced the scissors into my son’s abdomen and stabbed him in the thigh with the knife. The onlookers also didn’t show the courtesy to rush him to the hospital.

“By the time he could be taken to the hospital, he succumbed to the injuries,” she said.

Amritsar woman dies in custody; police claim suicide

Amritsar woman dies in custody; police claim suicide

 

A 56-year-old woman who was in police custody since Tuesday in a dowry death case died at the police station under mysterious circumstances on Wednesday.

 

Cops claim that the woman committed suicide by hanging herself. The police have started investigations under sections 174 and 176 of the CrPC (Code of Criminal Procedure).

The deceased has been identified as Sukhwinder Kaur, a resident of Nawa Pind. A case of dowry death had been registered against her and her son Mahinder Singh at Jandiala police station on charges of the dowry death of her daughter-in-law Sukhbir Kaur. The two were arrested on Tuesday. 

 

Giving details, Jandiala SHO Paramjit Singh said the investigation of the case had revealed that Sukhwinder was a domineering woman. He said that a couple of days ago, a tiff had taken place between Sukhwinder and Sukhbir over a paltry sum of `20, which Sukhbir had demanded from her mother-in-law to buy milk for her children.

“Sukhwinder allegedly strangled her daughter-in-law to death over this. The case was registered against her and her son (Sukhbir Kaur’s husband) on Tuesday and the two were arrested on the same day,” he said.

The woman was to be presented in court on Wednesday, he said.

“On Wednesday morning, Sukhwinder told the lady constable that she wanted to bathe before being taken to court. The lady constable took her to the bathroom where she committed suicide by hanging herself from the geyser with the help of her dupatta,” said the SHO.

He said the lady constable later informed the other staff on duty, who forced open the bathroom door to find her hanging from the geyser,” he said.

“After the visit of the magistrate to the police station, an investigation has been initiated into the matter under sections 174 and 176 of the CrPC,” the SHO said.
