Will Indian police ever be people friendly ?

 

God's Devotee Beaten By Police

God's Devotee Beaten By Police

  The way Indian democracy has failed to take note of the concerns of ordinary Indians despite being hailed by foreign political experts as mature and successful democracy in the Asian region,I am least hesitant to suggest that monarchy is better than corrupt democratic system of governance!The latest example is fiasco that marred the political landscape of Karnataka! A constitutional head involved in cheap political interests ! Shame !! Just take note of the corruption level in recently concluded CWG games.

The judiciary that instilled faith in democratic institutions is also now tainted by corruption.That’s what I came to assume in the wake of the allegations made by Former Law minister Shanti Bhushan who highlighted the fact that how most of the Chief Justice were “definitely corrupt”.If we determine the standard of services offered by the various government bodies we find that most of them are offering poor services.I mean when you take note of them by contrasting their work with prevalent global standard !!

We have trains that do not run on time.The railway station or bus station are often in bad shape.We wish to run super fast trains but look at the quality of rail tracks !! We have government run schools but take note of the quality of education offered by them.We have state of the art schools run by private bodies but they are meant only for students belonging to rich families.The institutes meant for higher learning lack the infrastructure besides lacking the idea to compel students to pursue quality research work !!! As a result the institutes like IIM and IIT have become a mean to produce students whose main goal is to serve the interests of capitalist forces. 

 

 

 

 

That's Indian Police In Action !

That's Indian Police In Action !

I mean the whole country is being plagued by all sorts of complexities that in the end have widened the gulf between haves and have-nots. Forget about tales of corrupt politicians and bureaucrats.They both being hand in glove have set new standards of playing with the hard earned money of common citizens.I am not a chap who loves pessimism but it really hurts me that our system has nothing to offer to real good people interested in making real changes.They are being constantly marginalized being hailed as impractical souls and that makes the future more murkier !!

Coming to the main theme of the article I wish to throw light on the role of Indian police.It still evokes fear in the eyes of common citizens. Why ? For how long will the image of policeman be of troublemaker than peacemaker ? It would be waste of words to remind how corrupt the Indian police is.Even the most poorest vendor who earns a petty sum of money each day has to grease the palm of men in uniform each day !! A recent raid on women constable’s residence revealed illegal assets worth nearly in many crores.That says all.

Will Indian police ever be people friendly ? Long lectures to improve the face of police are published day and night by the media.The police officials unashamedly enter into rhetoric about improving their relations with common citizens but the equations between police and common people is deteriorating with each passing day.Tall claims to honour human rights of person in cutody as laid down by Apex Court in D.K Basu case – D.K Basu v. State of West Bengal (AIR 1997 SC 610- are openly trampled upon within the Police Stations !!! 

 

 

 

Man Or Woman Police Remains The Same !

Man Or Woman Police Remains The Same !

 
My one of the relatives is fighting a marital dispute case in the lower court.The other party belongs to men in uniform.When I assisted my said relatives by giving them legal advice,not professionally but only on human grounds,I was threatened by the policemen to implicate in the false case !!! If they can dare to threaten a legal counsel this way imagine the methods carved by them to silence the ordinary citizens !! I remember a case when an innocent teacher of government college was presented as a drug dealer in the court when he dared to punish the son of a cop due to bad behaviour in the class !! Now I wish to know is offering a legal advice to a harassed lot some sort of crime ? I know the answer.However, the local police thinks otherwise.It’s a crime in their eyes !!! As a result of that crime I should be ready to face the heat !!
 

 

You can imagine the plight of ordinary citizens It’s really ironical that even the likes of us who belong to legal fraternity have to constantly face the ire of policemen amidst bombardment of cheap allegations and abuses hurled upon us by the men in uniform.Recently,I heard a petty constable hurling cheap abuses over telephone to senior Standing Counsel making statements like “Kya ukhad loge mera ” (you can dare not touch me ).

 

Isn’t it ironical that they present innocent teacher as drug dealer in the court while in state like Goa they suggest ways and means to the big drug dealers to keep them away from the long hands of law ?

 

  In the video, Atala speaks about his drug operation and how Goan police on his payroll advised him of ways to avoid getting caught – don’t buy a cellphone in your own name and change phone numbers frequently because your calls are monitored. “This is the mafia,” is how Atala describes the confederacy of crime between the police, politicians and the drug cartels.”

 

Israeli drug peddler revealed that policemen supplied him drugs stolen from a police godown. His arrest led to Goa’s first drug-related gang war.

 

 

 

 

Give Money To Work !!

Give Money To Work !!

 Recently,in Allahabad father and son ,both lawyers, were badly beaten by the police for no reason at all.It’s not the first time such an incident has occurred. Long time back S P Awasthi a lawyer at Allahabad High Court died in police custody due to alleged torture at the hands of policemen.The lawyers then went on rampage leading to breakdown of normalcy in the city.I remember the policemen were ordered by the court to follow code of conduct while dealing with lawyers and other eminent citizens. However,nothing has changed.The scenario remains grim even as the Human Rights Commission never fails to remind the State government to sensitize the police forces.

I just wish to know for how long innocent people be punished by the men in uniform ? Who will ensure that men in khaki turn into saviours than acting as chosen representatives of hell ? Any answers ?

  1. Posting a short article from India Today that deals with Bhagalpur Blindings-an exmaple of brutality of Indian police.

    There are perhaps Freudian explanations for the depravity of the act itself. An illiterate, uncouth policeman, who for one moment, savours the power to take a life, or a pair of eyes, from another human being. But there are no satisfactory explanations for the localised but vociferous support for the campaign by the Bhagalpur police to blind alleged criminals by piercing their eyes and pouring acid into them. Nor is it easy to explain the apparent official sanction for the year-long practice-the suspension of 15 policemen notwithstanding-or the extent to which Bihar’s political bosses were involved. To understand all that is to understand Bhagalpur, and, by extension, the blood-splattered socio-political fabric of India’s most backward state. Bhagalpur is no stranger to violence. There were 89 officially recorded murders in the past 10 months-an average of one every three days. Daylight hold-ups, Chicago style, and caste wars are as commonplace as the dust and the flies. Against that backdrop, it is, perhaps, easier to understand why the local populace, irrespective of caste or creed, took to the streets in support of the barbaric blindings. To them it was merely poetic justice.

  2. An Example Of Brutality Of Indian Police And Also Mob Justice !!!

    **************************

    Bihar cops drag chain snatcher behind bike

    Patna, Aug. 28: An alleged chain snatcher in Bihar’s Bhagalpur district is battling for life in a hospital after he was beaten by a mob and then two policemen tied him to the back of a motorcycle and dragged him along the ground. Mohammad Aurangzeb alias Saleem of Nathnagar town in Bhagalpur was severely beaten with leather belts, rods and stones by people on Monday after he was caught on suspicion of snatching a woman’s chain.

    According to local social activist Santosh Kumar, Aurangzeb, an autorickshaw puller in his early twenties, was beaten brutally by people. “He was caught after some people chased him. Soon a mob gathered and started beating him after tying his hands behind him. He was crying for help but nobody cared,” Mr Kumar said.

    Two policemen reached the spot but instead of rescuing him, they tied one of his legs to the back of their motorcycle and dragged him along the rough and bumpy road for not less than 100 metres.

    Aurangzeb was badly bruised in the process. According to Bhagalpur district officials, the man was admitted in a government hospital in a critical condition. “He is undergoing treatment but his condition remains critical,” an official said on Tuesday.

    Bihar police chief A.R. Sinha on Tuesday suspended the two policemen, Ramchandra Rai and L.B. Singh after television news channels showed footage of the entire episode.

    Police is to protect law abiding citizens but its just opposite -criminals and mafia have good connections with the these licensed goondas while law fearing people remain at mercy of them.

    This is unfortunate and deplorable state of affair!…

    Good write-up!

    ” आपके लेख सर्वदा बहुत मेहनत से तैयार किये होते हैं। यह भी है।” (Gyanji said)

    Author’s Response :

    उसकी वजह यह है ज्ञानजी कि लिखते वक्त मन के किसी कोने में आप जैसे तमाम गुणी पाठको/लेखको का स्मरण चलता रहता है जिसकी वजह से लेख में एक standard स्तर अपने आप ही आ जाता है.अगर अच्छे लेखको के बीच लेख जा रहा तो किस तरह से वो intercept करेंगे यह मन में चलता ही रहता है और बिना लेख के स्वाभाविकता को प्रभावित किये जो कुछ भी मै लिख रह हू उसको एक ठीक ठाक सा स्तर दे जाते है .

    क्या है standard स्तर ? यहाँ पर मै आपकी ही एक बहुत ही पुरानी बात को संज्ञान में लाना चाहूँगा कि हिंदी लेखन और अंग्रेजी लेखन के तौर तरीको में बहुत फर्क है. हिंदी साहित्य या हिंदी ब्लॉग वर्ल्ड में लोग अच्छा नहीं लिख रहे है या अच्छा स्तरीय नहीं लिख सकते ऐसा नहीं पर न जाने क्यों मुझे लगता है खासकर हिंदी ब्लॉग वर्ल्ड का दायरा बहुत सीमित,व्यक्तिवादी और संकीर्ण है.इसके ठीक विपरीत अंग्रेजी वर्ल्ड का दायरा बहुत व्यापक और शोधपरक है.अंग्रेजी वर्ल्ड में flaws नहीं है यह बात नहीं ज्ञानजी पर फिर भी हम इस बात कि अनदेखी नही कर सकते कि हिंदी ब्लॉग वर्ल्ड अभी कोसो दूर है जिस स्तर पर अंग्रेजी ब्लॉग/लेखन वर्ल्ड है.मै उन्ही के बीच का हू और आज भी बहुत साल इनके बीच रहने पर भी यह रोज ही लगता है कि नहीं अभी और improve या refined करना है अपने लेखो को !!

    ..रोज ही तमाम ऐसे लेख पढ़ जाता हू जिनको पढने के बाद लगता है कि थोडा सा अपने लेख का स्तर और अच्छा हो जाए तो क्या बात है..यही वजह है ज्ञानजी कि मै अपने लेख में हर बार यही कोशिश करता हू कि स्तर ठीक ठाक रहे.जिस दिन मैंने ये काशी वाला लेख पब्लिश किया तो लगा कि वाह क्या तस्वीर लगायी है. लेख के लिखने के आलावा वाकई बहुत मेहनत से तस्वीरे और कैप्सन तैयार किया है ऐसे ख्याल मन में आये तो आते ही चले गए !!!!! .Appreciate किया लोगो ने तो समझ में आया कि मेहनत सफल रही !!! .

    थोड़ी देर बाद ही मैंने यह लेख पढ़ा..लेख ठीक था पर देखिये कितनी बढ़िया तस्वीरे लगायी है इस लेख के लेखक ने यात्रा वर्णन में !! यह लिंक देखे : http://patster66.wordpress.com/2010/11/08/vienna-mauthausen/

    ..फिर मुझे लगा कि नहीं और बेहतर काम कर सकता था अपने काशी वाले लेख में presentation – wise !!!!!

    बस यही वजह है कि लेख को स्तरीय बनाने में मै मेहनत में कंजूसी नहीं करता !!! बस आप गुणी जन लोगो का स्नेह ऐसे ही मिलता रहे !!!

    Author’s Response To Arvind Mishraji:

    मिश्राजी आपको भी Vienna पसंद आया होगा पांडेयजी की तरह !!

    वैसे मिश्राजी आप उन चुनिन्दा हिंदी bloggers में है जिनके ब्लोग्स global standard के दायरे में आते है !! That’s a huge achivement as it’s no mean task to be side by side attributes t…hat define excellence at global level. A reason why I never miss to cast a glance at your articles despite constraints of time 🙂 Anyway,I hope to find U often by my side in the writing landscape and also in real world.

    आप खुद ही वाकिफ है हिंदी ब्लॉग की दशा से !! मुझसे बेहतर समझ रखते है हिंदी ब्लॉग वर्ल्ड की !! इसलिए मै हिंदी blogsphere के बारे में मौन ही रहूँगा !!!

  5. Another Example Of Brutality Of Police :

    http://networkedblogs.com/cauTm

    ******************

    और, पुलिसियों के इस नेक काम में बनारस के अखबार भी खुलकर साथ दे रहे हैं। आईजी राजेंद्रपाल सिंह की कार संपूर्णानंद संस्कृत विश्वविद्यालय के सामने से बुधवार को गुजर रही थी। तभी उनकी कार की एक मार्शल या बोलेरो से टक्कर हो गयी। एक पुलिस अधिकारी ने उतर कर न सिर्फ स्वयं गाड़ी चालक व उसके साथ बैठे युवकों को धुना बल्कि साथ चल रहे अर्दली पुलिसियों को ललकार कर युवकों को पिटवाया। पहले तो अर्दली टाइप पुलिसिये युवकों को थप्पड़ रसीद कर रहे थे तब अधिकारी ने ललकार कर कहा-लाठियों से पीटो।

    इस पर थप्पड़ रसीद कर थक चुके पुलिसिये लाठियां लेकर युवकों पर पिल पड़े। युवक पैर पकड़कर माफी मांग रहे थे, गिड़गिड़ा रहे थे खूने-खून हो रहे थे पर उक्त अफसर और पुलिसियों का मन इतने से ही नहीं भरा। चारों ओर ट्रैफिक जाम और दो निहत्थे युवकों पर पुलिसियों का कहर जारी था। सभी किंकर्तव्यविमूढ़ हो दंभी और जवांमर्द पुलिस अफसर और उसके मातहत के अर्दलियों का यह आतंकी रूप दांतों तले ऊंगलियां दबाकर देख रहे थे। उक्त दंभी अफसर का मन इतने से ही नहीं भरा। उसने मातहत पुलिसियों को डांटते हुए कहा-इन्हें थाने ले जाकर और तोड़ो। दोनों युवकों को बोरे की तरह एक पुलिस की गाड़ी में पटककर ले जाया गया। थाने के अंदर क्या हाल हुआ, वे युवक ही जानें। हां, उन्हें मंडलीय अस्पताल ले जाकर कानूनी खानापूरी के नाम पर मेडिकल जरूर कराया गया ताकि पुलिसिये अदालत के चक्कर में न पड़ जाएं।
