The verdict finally arrives after thirty four protracted years in the 1984 anti Sikh riots by the Delhi high court convicting n sentencing the senior Congress leader and former member of parliament Sajjan Kumar to life imprisonment on several charges of perpetrating mob violence and murder of several Sikhs after the assasination of late prime minister Indira Gandhi in 1984.
Sajjan Kumar was convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment on the witness of Harjit Kaur and two other Sikh women whose husbands and family members were brutally massacred in these riots on the alleged instigation of the former.
The Congress party’s senior leader’s conviction n subsequent sentencing has put the Congress in political quandary as the high court has also noted that it was due to the alleged political patronage granted to the accused that the case took more than three decades to come to the final conclusion. Sajjan Kumar has been directed to surrender till 31st December.
After the verdict of the High court the politics between the Congress and BJP has hotted up with the leaders of both the parties accusing each other for being allegedly involved and patronising the culprits of the roits.
While the union finance minister Arun Jaitley has pronounced Sajjan Kumar as the symbol of tyrrany n anti Sikh roits having been allegedly patronised by the Congress party n its subsequent governments, the former union minister and senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad has accused the BJP and its certain leaders for being allegedly involved in the Godhara riots of 2002 having not brought to justice till yet. He had questioned as to why are they not being brought to justice?
It may be recalled that after the assasination of late prime minister Smt Indira Gandhi by her two Sikh body guards there have been massive anti Sikh riots all over the country in retaliation by rioters allegedly at the behest of the then ruling party as accused by the BJP and the riot victims.
According to the statistics about 8000 Sikhs were killed in these riots nationally, with three thousand casualties in Delhi, exclusively. The massacre was termed as a genocide never ever happened earlier.
The victimised and traumatised Sikh families who’d lost their near n dear ones in this massacre then have been since then moving to various courts to seek justice.
Several commissions were also constituted to bring the culprits involved in these riotous violence to justice including the Nanawati Commission.
Till now about 31 cullprits have been convicted. It has been revealed that despite several enquiry commissions and cases in the courts of law, the main perpetrators of the violence were not being nailed n brought to justice because of their being influential politically.
After the formation of the BJP led NDA government a fresh SIT was constituted to expedite the proceedings on the basis of the charge sheet filed by the premier investigation agency CBI and the case was being heard by the High Court Delhi.
The Court led by the justice Murlidharan on the witness of three victimsed women, Harjeet Kaur and two others finally convicted former MP n senior Congress leader Sajjan Kumar and sentenced him to life imprisonment to the much relief of the 1984 riot victims n their families, with the court also noting that political patronage to the perpetrators of violence n mob lynching in the anti Sikh riots of 1984, Mumbai riots of 1983 and the Godhara riots of 2002 where the pattern looks to be almost similar, are allegedly protected due to political patronage resulting in tremendous delay in bringing the real culprits to justice.
Truck driver who had caused the death of 2 youths of Pauri Garhwal nabbed
The recent deaths of two youths namely Ramesh Singh 23 years old and Vir Singh aged 22 years old at Sarhaul border, Gurugram hailing from Kathur and Salon respectively from district Pauri Garhwal was not a murder but accidental deaths.
One of their friend from Ghulek village who was grievously injured is still in hospital under critical conditions and recovering gradually.
Today more than 150 people of Uttarakhand from Delhi and different parts of Haryana gathered at Udyog Vihar police station in Dundahera, Haryana to register their peaceful protest demanding immediate arrest and stringent action against the culprit. The culprit who had caused this accident three days ago at the wee hours of the morning because of his rash driving – had fled the scene instead of helping the grievously injured youths who could have been saved had he ferried them to the hospital in time.
The third injured youth was lucky and had survived was rushed to the hospital by the locals available at the accident spot.
According to a video released in a WhatsApp group by some social activists these deaths were the result of a dangerous accident that occurred last Monday early in the morning while these three youths namely Ramesh Singh (23), Verr Singh ( 22) and Narendra Singh were returning back from their respective duties from Empire club in MGF Mall Gurugram.
It has not yet been known as to why these youths had gone to Sarhaul border. While they were walking a vehicle at extremely high speed ran over them grievously injuring all the three. While two youths namely Ramesh Singh and Veer Singh died on the spot succumbing to grievous injuries, the third one Narendra Singh was admitted to hospital where he is still under treatment.
There was shock wave all around amongst their families and amongst the people of Uttarakhand community. Photos of these dead and injured youths with news about their alleged murder were loaded on various social media platforms and went viral. The cause of these deaths could not be ascertained earlier. However, after a day the Udyog Vihar police had revealed that they were accidental deaths but nobody was willing to accept the police version.
They were angry that even if it was an accident the driver of the vehicle who killed these youths so brutally under his vehicle should not have fled the scene and instead should have informed the police or at least helped the injured to the hospital. But by fleeing from the scene of the accident after two deaths he behaved like a killer. However, due to excessive media hype and the Haryana CM’s directives after Uttarakhand CM Rawat’s request to him, the erroneous and rash truck driver involved in this fateful accident has been caught, as per sources.
The chief minister of Uttarakhand Trivendra Singh Rawat had spoken to Haryana CM Manohar Lal Khatter requesting him to direct the police to bring the culprit to justice at the earliest.
The Udyog Vihar police of Haryana has shown immense vigilance and dedication in nabbing the culprit within a couple of days. However, this has happened only after media hype and peoples’ pressure. Further Haryana CM’s intervention after the request of his Uttarakhand counterpart helped in the quick resolution of this case.
This is the tempo driver nabbed by the Palam Vihar, Gurugram police namely Neeraj Bhatt of Nepal.

Kejrival expresses serious concern over five murders yesterday in Delhi. Delhi police says they were due to personal enmity
The chief minister of Delhi Arvind Kejrival who is usually at loggerheads with the central government ruled by BJP and the Delhi police which is under the jurisdiction of Ministry of home affairs has expressed his serious concern over the five back to back incidents of killings in various parts of Delhi yesterday.
Delhi Chief minister has tweeted that Five murders have taken place in Delhi in the last 24 hours and is extremely serious situation. I appeal to @ Lt GovDelhi & @ HMO India to urgently look into the law and order situation of the national capital.
The Delhi police taking special note of the Delhi chief minister’s tweet has replied to Arvind Kejrival, Lt governor Delhi and Home minister,, India in the twitter handle of Delhi police : The murders have all been confirmed to be personal enmity related. Accused previously known to victim and already arrested in some cases.
Overall heinous crime in 2019 is down by 10.5% . Crime by use of fire arms are down by 5.65 % . Crime against women are down by 11.5%.
The Delhi police through the tweet meant that it was not the breakdown of the law and order situation or negligence of the Delhi pokice as the five murders in diffetent locations of Delhi took place due to personal animosity, not due to the lack on the part of police authorities. Instead it patted itself saying that the crime graph in the capital has rather come down compared to the previous years.
There is not a iota of doubt that despite the best efforts of the Delhi police incidents of murders, snatchings, thefts and robberies are incessantly happening n peoples’ life in jeopardy.
The solution ratio is comparatively quite less and good number of cases in the context of chain and mobile snatchings including eve teasings and women assaults are also not reported adequately for the apprehension of retaliation from criminals.
You open newspapers every morning and you’ll find number of cases pertaining to frauds, murders, assaults, rapes, chain snatchings and women insecurity.
The shortage of Delhi police staff and majority of the Delhi police being involved in VIP patronage and security is also one of the reasons for non resolution of cases and spurt in crime rate.
The AAM AADMI government of Delhi has been demanding separate state hood of Delhi since long but of no awail. The law and order is the central subject and the Delhi police is under the union government’s ministry of home affairs with Delhi’s leutenant governor as its chief. The relations between Delhi CM Arvind Kejrival and the Delhi police has not been in good terms due to the latter’s being under the centre’s influence.
Kejrival has recently raised a controversy in the media by saying that he is afraid that he may be attacked by his own body guards who are from Delhi police as was late prime minister IndiraGandhi was assasinated.
In the past too Arvind Kejrival had quarrels with senior Delhi police officials and the union government on certain issues hyped too much in the media.
The recent concern of Delhi CM Arvind Kejrival regarding five murders in Delhi through a tweet while raises the law and order issue in the public domain but the reply of Delhi police about bringing some of the culprits to justice and lessening of heinous crime and women related crime rate in Delhi this year definitely gives some relief to Delhi citizens.
But it remains to be seen whether the law and order situation in the capital city of Delhi really improves in the near future as well to the fullest satisfaction of all its citizens or not.

A journalist in Shamli Uttar Pradesh Amit Sharma was brutally thrashed, abused, kicked repeatedly, urine put into his mouth and put inside the police lock up by the drunk GRP police and SHO Rakesh Kumar Upadhyay in broad day light.

The DIG came on the Dharna site and assured the protesting journalists that he will bring the erring policeman to justice and FIR lodged against him.
After incessant pressure and media blitkriez the police authorities were compelled to suspend the police inspector responsible for attack on the journalist.
The UP police and GRP seems to have gone berserk in the state and is arbitrarily infringing upon the constititional rights of free will and free speech of journos without any fault of theirs.
It may be recalled that the Supreme Court has recently granted bail to an arbitrarily arrested journalist who was sent to 11 days remand by Uttar Pradesh police.

The UP police has come to the Delhi house of free lance journalist Prashant Kanojia and arrested him without giving his wife Jagisha Arora opportunity to even speak to her terrified husband.
The journo was maltreated as if he was a hardened criminal involved in a murder.
The apex court has questioned the arbitrary attitude of the Noida police in infringing upon the right of a journalist for free speech and expression.
Two other journalists of Nation Live news channel Ishika Singh and news editoe Anuj Shukla had been arrested for airing the news and the vedio of a women casting aspersions on the UP CM Yogi Adityanath with out checking the facts and corroboration of the incident.

Several other journalists are behind bars in UP for face books posts against the ruling party administration.
