Mr. Shonee Kapoor I appreciate your outright statement. As per my knowledge their are many rulings by the Honorable Supreme Court of India that every citizen may be equual in law on paper but that is false perception. In practical everybody is not equal before the law. I have read thousands of rulings from the Apex Court which states that the evidence received from a millionaire is much valuable than a evidence from a street urchin because the millionaire is highly respectable man. Hell with such concept of Apex Court.
But, practically what happens is that Governor relaxes imprisonment only after undergoing imprisonment of approx. 70% of total duration and that too if conduct in jail remains very good continuously providing a feeling that the person is changed and feels guilty of what he had done.
Please don't get confused due to Sanjay Dutt. He may be good actor and influensive and on advocate advise he might have shown to society that he feel guilty for what he has done and thereby got some supproters. But, you will see him too behind bars for now. Even if his application for waiver would be considered it will be dismissed at this stage and might be granted only after approx. 4 years of imprisonment.
Mr Gautam Prasad the respectable lawyer Supreme Court, the question is not of Sanjay Dutt a film star or Om Prakash Dhusia a unknown entity that is me in the Indian population but the question is of applicability of law or standard of law. I have never heard any Indian citizen charged with the double murder and facing trial is allowed to cross even his district shores but see the beauty two Italian Marines were allowed to celebrate Christmas at Italy, were allowed to participate in the General Elections and now a special court would be constituted to try them but on whose expences? But where is the Supreme Court when lakhs of poor, hapless, ignorant, innocents Indian had to face the trial for atleast minimum 10-15 years but no special court is constituted for them? We were implicated in section 364, 302, 201 IPC and faced trial for complete 12 years and awaiting appeal in the High Court U.P. since the year 2011but no Supreme Court comes for rescue. Long live my India the greatest pseudo democarcy and its concept of equality before the law.
