Justice Sharad Arvind Bobde

New Delhi, July 28 : The Chief Justice of India SA Bobde on Tuesday came down heavily on the Uttar Pradesh administration suffering the state has been suffering as someone with 64 cases was released on bail.

A bench comprising the Chief Justice, Justice A.S. Bopanna and Justice V. Ramasubramanian made this sharp observation refusing bail to man with 8 criminal cases.

The Chief Justice, citing the Vikas Dubey case, told the petitioner’s counsel: “Your client is a dangerous man. We cannot release him on bail. See what happened in the other case.”

The petitioner sought bail on medical ground, as he was suffering from several diseases.

The prosecution pointed out there were 8 criminal cases against him at one police station, and contended before the bench that how a person with such a criminal background could be released from jail.

In the Vikas Dubey encounter case, the apex court had also asked the former apex court judge headed committee to examine how Dubey with so many cases was released on bail.

The UP government had informed the apex court that Dubey brutally massacred 8 policemen using 90 criminals of his gang and then mutilated their bodies. Dubey was serving a life sentence and he was out on parole when this massacre happened on July 2.

On July 20, the apex court had told the Uttar Pradesh government that it is appalled that Vikas Dubey was released on bail despite so many cases against him and this shows the failure of the institution to keep someone like him behind bars.

“If they have made certain statements and then something has followed, you should look into this,” said the Chief Justice.

The bench said it is appalled at the fact that a person like Dubey was let out on bail, and this shows failure of an institution. “We want an accurate report of all the orders,” added the Chief Justice.

The Chief Justice also added “What is at stake is not that one incident in UP. What is at stake is the whole system. Remember that.”

Senior advocate Harish Salve, representing UP police, had contended before the bench that “we can’t demoralise the police force”. Chief Justice Bobde said: “Strengthen the rule of law and police force won’t ever be demoralised.”

Security on the inter-state borders of Delhi was beefed up on Sunday in view of the ongoing protests by farmers in neighbouring Punjab and Haryana against the three Bills related to the agriculture sector, a Delhi Police officer said.

More police personnel have been deployed in the border areas as a precautionary measure, including at Singhu border and GT-Karnal Road.

Farmers from nearby states are expected to arrive in Delhi to mark their protest, since different farmer organisations have given calls for protests over the proposed legislations.

“We are keeping an eye on the borders with Punjab and Haryana; arrangements have been made to stop farmers from entering Delhi,” the senior police officer said.

Precautionary measures have also been taken on Delhi-Uttar Pradesh border. Two companies of security forces have been deployed near Ghazipur and Ashok Nagar side to prevent the entry of farmers from western Uttar Pradesh.

“We have set up border pickets as a precautionary measure on the Delhi-Uttar Pradesh border. Our teams are on alert,” Deputy Commissioner of Police (East) Jasmeet Singh said.

Farmers in several states are up in arms against the Farmers’ Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion And Facilitation) Bill; The Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and Farm Services Bill; and Essential Commodities (Amendment) Bill.

Aggressive Derek tears documents, opposition force brief adjournment

Published

The Rajya Sabha saw a massive ruckus on Sunday as the government sought to clear the farm Bills amid an unrelenting opposition determined to block them as TMC MP Derek O’Brien tore up the documents.

An aggressive O’Brien, approached the Chair and tore the documents in front of him calling the Bill “Kala Kanoon”. He was also heard saying, “You cannot do this” to the chair. So much so the aide of the Deputy Chairperson who was conducting the house at that time, had to come to shield him.

Despite repeated requests, many opposition parties reached the well of the house to agitate. Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad demanded that the discussion continue on Monday. “To decide this, we should go by the consensus of the members, not by the numbers of the ruling party,” Azad said.

Inspite of the Deputy Chairperson of the Rajya Sabha Harivansh reminding about the contagious nature of the current coronavirus pandemic, many opposition leaders refused to budge and continued to shout slogans in the well.

Before the pandemonium broke out, Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar assured the house, “MSPs will not be touched at any cost. It is not just these Bills, many steps have been taken to double farmers’ income in the past 6 years. There is no need to doubt that farmers will continue to avail MSP.”

However, following the animated and aggressive protests by the opposition led by TMC’s O’Brien, the House was briefly adjourned.
