Recently a person of my area killed his wife by setting her on fire in the bathroom with her hands and feet tied on Deepawali, reason she has produced five daughters in a row. What more pathetic is Police even refused to write/lodge FIR in spite of pressure from the whole society and her caste/community men, since Police was bribed. In most cases the groom side managed to come out from the clutches of law on the strenght of money.

So, reaction from the society is justified.

Please go thro’ the following remarks of Apex Court had appeared in the news under heading

Lynching shows loss of faith in courts: says SC

 

Some persons entered into a village at Vaishali Dist. Of Bihar with a motive to commit theft. But the villagers caught and lynched them all on spot.

Reacting on this news/incident Hon. SC observed that “this shocking act of lynching of suspected thieves is the result of the erosion of their faith in the ability of the courts to render speedy justice.” While deciding a civil dispute that was first filed in 1947 – the year India got Independence – a bench of Justice A K Mathur and Markandey Katju observed that massive delay in disposal of cases was eroding public faith in the courts and warned that unless the situation was addressed on a war footing by the authorities concerned it would soon go out of control.”We saw in the media news of lynching of suspected thieves into a village at Vaishali Dist. Of Bihar, the gunning down of an under trial prisoner outside Patna civil court and other incidents where people have taken the law into their own hands” the bench said.

          “This is obviously because many people have started thinking that justice will not be done in courts due to delay in court proceedings”

“This is indeed alarming state of affair and we once again request the authorities to do the needful in the matter urgently before the situation goes out of control.” The bench said, they also said that this is not first case they were coming across pending in courts for years, frustrating the litigants and causing them anguish.

          “Recently in a case decided on 23Aug 2007 Rajinder Singh(Dead) vs. Prem Mai and ors – we had expressed our deep anguish about this situation and had observed that because of delay in disposal of cases, people of this country are fast losing their faith in the judiciary” it said.

The parents of the girl have committed crimes. They cannot take law into their hands. Thses are not the days of limb for limb and eye for eye. When they feel that their daughter was murdered, the course could be to lodge a complaint. Simply on the premise that there will be dealy in courts or that on the ground that justice will not be done, one cannot take law into their hands and act according to their wish etc.

Is it good that a Highest authority like Hon. SC show helplessness as shown in above of my postings? As this sends a negative message, instead that can they direct for investigation on the basis of report in newspaper suo motto?
