No to torture, establishment of rule of law

Dr.Lenin Raghuvanshi 19/6/2009 8:57:07 PM(IST)

Once the first Prime Minister of India Mr. Jawahar Lal Nehru said "Police is standing on quadrilateral from where it can protect and also violates human rights.” But it seems that his wordings is of no use in todays world as there is an enormous increase in police torture in past few decades.

It is apparent that police is the biggest agency for the establishment of rule of law and human rights. However police torture is prohibited under section 330 -331 of Indian Penal Code (IPC). Forceful approbation of crime by police under section 161 C.R.P.C. that is not evidence under section 26 of evidence act; if the statement is not given before the magistrate, then question arise why police is taking the hold of torture?

The main reasons of torture are feudal and colonial structure of police, scarcity of resources in the police department, political intervention and no investigation agency apart from police department which based on the scientific and impartial. Feudal society itself acknowledges the torture.

Definition of torture of United Nation Convention Against Torture Article (1): For the purposes of this Convention, torture means any act by which severe pain or suffering, whether physical or mental, is intentionally inflicted on a person for such purposes as obtaining from him or a third person information or a confession, punishing him for an act he or a third person has committed or is suspected of having committed, or intimidating or coercing him or a third person, or for any reason based on discrimination of any kind, when such pain or suffering is inflicted by or at the instigation of or with the consent or acquiescence of a public official or other person acting in an official capacity. It does not include pain or suffering arising only from, inherent in or incidental to lawful sanctions.

Amended section 176 (A) of C.R.P.C. have provision for the investigation in the each case of custodial death, however this section does not implicate in any case of entire U.P and mutually under section 97 of C.R.P.C. magistrate may issue search –warrant if any person is illegally taken in the custody. Honorable Supreme Court issues essential guideline for the detention in the case of D.K Basu Vs West Bengal, which is mandatory for police to follow. In the encounter killing, National Human Rights Commission (NHRC,www.nhrc.nic.in) directed for the FIR on the police also and the fair investigation by independent agency. NHRC also directed to send the videography of post mortem report in case of custodial death.

There is a provision of interim relief as compensation under section 19 of Human Right Act. Article 21 of Indian Constitution gave rights to live with dignity, which is against the basic principle of torture.

If we look on the statistics, mostly poor, marginalized, dalits, minority and backward were being tortured. However big mafia and or anti –social element are not victimize of this, exceptionally one or two cases. Only common people are panic with the fear of police. Police jointly with the influenced criminal established the rule of lord through the corruption based discriminatory practices. So, no rule of law can be established without preventing police torture. Lets come together to enlighten the struggle to stop torture and establish rule of law.

Local resident pay homage on the death anniversary of malnourished child Shahbuddin

Dr. Lenin Raghuvanshi/Ms. Shruti 2/6/2009 12:20:32 PM(IST)

On 31st May, 09 the resident of Dhannipur pay homage to the martyr Shahbuddin on his death anniversary following to their own religion belief. Previous year on 17th May, 08 Mr. Mahmudul Hasan, Mr. Hayat Muhammad, and Mohd. Sagir Bhai member of Bunkar Dastakar Adhikar Manch took 14 malnourished children Shiv Prasad Gupt regional hospital who were between 4 months to 3 ½ year. Only Sahabuddin was admitted and other children were discharged by the doctor. After long struggle Shahbuddin was defeated on 31st May, 09. http://www.ahrchk.net/ua/mainfile.php/2008/2880/

After the death of Sahabuddin administrative officer (District Magistrate, Chief Medical Officer) came and investigate the fact and interact with local people and assured them and on 1st June, 08 other children were admitted in district hospital only for one week.


The people organization and media is continuously making administration aware about the nastiest condition and also doing advocacy for improvement of the economic condition through the availability of basic amenities and employment. However the administration is more interested in highlighting the weavers children are not suffering from malnutrition but from other disease rather than taking some positive aspect to improve the condition. The ICDS centre is activate for the development of children up to 5 years and due to their negligence children are suffering from malnutrition. Administration gaze the death of six children one by one.

The representative from both religion (Hindu & Muslim) unites at one platform under the banner of Bunkar dastkar Adhikar manch, a non -political trade union of weavers and artisans in Varanasi and pledge now no children will die due to malnutrition and notify the responsible authorities their protest will continue until they are doing negligence.

After the death of the Shahbuddin 104 children were malnourished identified in which 64 children were suffering severely malnourished until and unless no preventive measures taken. A team of 10 officers came after the punitive action taken against ICDS worker, BDO and CDPO on the report submitted by the investigation team of three including chief Medical officer and they did not interact with anyone neither did the investigation of fact.http://pvchr.blogspot.com/2009/05/punitive-action-against-officials-in.html
