On eve of Independence day, a special message for all. Pledge to do the following: 1. Bribe the police every time you go to PS because otherwise they won't do their work they are supposed to do. 2. Continue to feel scared of CAW cell because they are more powerful than even courts. 3. Try to join men's rights groups pretending to be a fighter while you are only secretly learning how to get divorce without paying a penny while these idiots keep discussing how to fight cases. Also try to find a good lawyer because these other members have overlooked that obvious and easy solution. 4. Don't meet or talk to anyone in weekly meetings. Prefer to sit in WhatsApp or other groups just quietly and keep listening without sharing or contributing anything. These others must have tortured … [Read more...] about A special message on Independence Day!
It must be the season for news about CCTV and audio-video recordings. After I reported on two recent news about Supreme Court ordering CCTV in police lock-ups and prisons, and Supreme Court asking for CCTVs in all Delhi police stations; there is now news that the government is requesting Supreme Court to allow audio-video recording of court proceedings. You hit us, we hit you! It’s all good in the end, because the main beneficiary of all this tussle between executive and judiciary will be the common man. In any case, both the police and judiciary are considered practically inaccessible to public, so there is no excuse for not implementing these things. Better late than never. Govt to petition Supreme Court to allow audio-video recording of court proceedings … [Read more...] about Government asks Supreme Court to allow audio-video recording of court proceedings
According to this latest news, Supreme court has made video capturing via CCTV mandatory in all police stations. Update Jul 27, 2015: This news has appeared only in few newspapers so far. According to this news reported by Economic Times, the SC has made CCTV to be mandatory in prisons, and in police lock-ups. Police lock-up does not necessarily imply all rooms of the police station are to be monitored under CCTV, but definitely CCTV should cover the lock-up rooms where arrested people are detained. Even that should be a good start, and within few months, people can start filing RTI on local PS to ask if they already have CCTV monitoring done or not, how many lock-up rooms, how many CCTV, by when it will be done etc. Also, there is good information given in this Delhi HC … [Read more...] about Supreme Court makes CCTV mandatory in all police stations
Subsequent to my previous post on Dr Pachauri of TERI having been slapped with multiple sections of the IPC related to molestation and other crimes, the radical feminists and the humanist feminists have again made fresh demands about his suspension from TERI. Lawyers, activists demand Pachauri’s resignation from TERI Previously, they had demanded that his passport should be seized by police. That ‘demand for justice’ was to ensure a criminal trial, as if Dr Pachauri was going to abscond from India leaving on the next flight to Cayman islands where he has stashed away a few million dollars earned through his climate change and environmental works! This current demand is to ensure a fair investigation by internal complaints committee in the sexual harassment complaints against Dr … [Read more...] about Feminists continue the slow kill on Dr Pachauri of TERI
Woman can’t evict hubby just because she pays EMI: Mumbai Family Court MUMBAI: A family court on Monday rejected a wife's interim plea seeking her estranged husband's removal from their Lokhandwala flat where she stays with him and their child, just because she pays the EMI (equated monthly installment to repay home loan). The court, while ruling in favour of the man who pays Rs 90,000 a month for household expenses, said in the current day, it is difficult to ascertain who has contributed how much while purchasing any asset or discharging any liability. "If both contribute to the household, either this way or that way, a particular spouse cannot claim exclusive right, ownership or title in the household property, merely because either the property stands in her name or she has … [Read more...] about Woman can’t evict husband just because she pays EMI: Mumbai Family Court
Update 3-Mar-2015: There was some news that government may drop marriage amendment bill (which introduces Irretrievable Breakdown of Marriage OR IrBM clause), but we cannot be too sure since there seems to be an inexplicable urge behind this bill, presumably to appease the international media that India is not just a women oppressive regime, or a rape and gang-rape country. It’s another matter that rape and other crime statistics are much higher in these developed countries who report the crimes in India. So it’s up to each individual to continue to send speed post/registered letters against this bill, else you might as well lose your property to a woman who made contribution to your life except that she holds a marriage certificate with your name as husband! After sending the … [Read more...] about Want to save your property? Oppose Marriage Laws Amendment (2010) bill
