Legal Article Mere Allegations Of Harassment Without Proximate Positive Action Not Sufficient For Conviction U/S 306 IPC: SC

It has to be said right at the outset that in a landmark, latest and laudable judgment titled Rajesh v State of Haryana in Criminal Appeal No. 93 of 2019 (Arising out of SLP (Cri.) No. 8867 of 2016)  by a two Judge Bench of Supreme Court comprising of Justice L Nageshwara Rao who authored the judgment for himself and Justice MR Shah and delivered on January 18, 2019, the Supreme Court very clearly and convincingly reiterated that conviction under Section 306 of the Indian Penal Code (Abetment of Suicide) is not sustainable on the allegation of harassment without there being any positive action proximate to the time of occurrence on the part of the accused, which led or compelled the person to commit suicide. The Bench was considering an appeal in this case against the High Court judgment that had confirmed the conviction of Rajesh for abetting suicide of his brother-in-law, Arvind. It may be recalled that in his suicide note, Arvind had disclosed that false allegations of demand of do…

Rape And Murder Of 8 Year Old Girl: SC Commutes Death Sentence To 25 Years Imprisonment Without Remission

It has to be said right at the beginning that in a landmark, latest and laudable judgment with far reaching consequences, the Supreme Court on January 18, 2019 in Nand Kishore v State of Madhya Pradesh in Criminal Appeal No. 94 of 2019 (Arising out of S.L.P. (Crl.) No. 7645 of 2013) has commuted to life imprisonment the death sentence which was earlier confirmed by the Madhya Pradesh High Court of a convicted for the rape and murder of an eight-year-old girl. It must be noted that this notable judgment which was authored by Justice R Subhash Reddy for himself, Justice Sharad A Bobde and Justice L Nageswara Rao took a balanced and reasonable view after taking into account all the facts and circumstances of the case. This alone explains why death penalty was not confirmed rather was commuted to that of life imprisonment with actual imprisonment of 25 years  without remission.

A Judicial Officer Is Not An Ordinary Government Servant And Must Be Above Suspicion: Allahabad High Court

It must be noted right at the outset that in a noteworthy judgment titled Sadhna Chaudhary v State of U.P. and others in Writ Petition No. 170 (S/B) of 2006 by a two-Judge Bench of Allahabad High Court comprising of Chief Justice Govind Mathur and Justice Shabihul Hasnain and delivered on 12 December 2018 has upheld the dismissal of a judicial officer on grounds of misconduct, on the basis of two orders passed by her in land acquisition cases. This has certainly sent shockwaves across Uttar Pradesh especially in judicial circles. The legal battle is still not over as she (the petitioner) still has the right to challenge this in the Apex Court which is the highest court in India! But certainly it is a big setback for her!
                         First and foremost, it is pointed out in para 1 that, “Heard Sri Prashant Chandra, Senior Advocate, assisted by Ms. Mahima Pahwa, learned counsel for petitioner, learned Standing Counsel for State of U.P. as well as Sri Upendra Nath Mishra for …

SC Imposes Rs 5 Crore Penalty On A Medical College For Playing Fraud On It; Orders Prosecution Of Its Dean

It must be said with consummate ease that in a landmark, latest and laudable judgment titled Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan University & Another v. Union of India & Others in Writ Petition (Civil) No. 1001 of 2017 with Writ Petition (Civil) No. 731 of 2018 which was delivered on January 17, 2019 by a three-Judge Bench of Supreme Court and authored by Justice L Nageswara Rao for himself, Justice Sharad A Bobde and Justice R Subhash Reddy, the Supreme Court has imposed a whooping penalty of Rs 5 crore on a medical college for playing fraud on it. It also ordered prosecution of its dean. While clearly barring the R.K.D.F. Medical College Hospital and Research Centre from making admissions for the 1st year MBBS course for the next two years, the three-Judge Bench of Apex Court has also ordered prosecution of college dean SS Kushwaha under Section 193 of the Indian Penal Code. The Apex Court also directed the college to pay compensation of Rs. 1 lakh to each student admitted in the colle…
