to get to truth in family matters is almost impossible witth so many allegations and conter allegations and hardly any solid evidence,


Especially to a judge who knows nothing about the parties and the surroundings and also in blind justice system, where intelligence based investigation system is a buzzword.

The other things which comes in the way are crdinal principle of "beyond reasonable doubt", with present evidence system/act.


This failure encourages false and cruel people.

Bench allows appeal of life convict


Wed, Nov 24 11:39 PM

Madurai, Nov 24 (PTI) The Madras High Court bench here today allowed a criminal appeal of a life convict, serving four terms of life imprisonment for burning his wife and three children to death following a quarrel, to set aside a lower court order. Justices K N Basha and Aruna Jegadeesan said the convict''s wife had told police in hospital that the incident was an accident and her husband was not responsible for it.

Besides their seven-year-old son''s deposition was contradictory. A lower court at Nagercoil had sentenced the man to four terms of life imprisonment on April 15 2010 for dousing his wife and four children -- aged seven, five, three and one -- with kerosene and setting them ablaze, leading to the deaths of the woman and three children.

The seven-year-old boy escaped with minor injuries. The court had also directed that all sentences would run concurrently and that the man remain in prison for a minimum of 20 years.

The prosecution said the woman had bought kerosene from her mother-in-law''s shop and that a quarrel broke out between the couple after a complaint that she had not paid for it. Following this, he poured kerosene on them and set them ablaze.
