Tourism Minister Chiranjeevi’s security men beat up two in road rage
Report dated 12/05/2013 @ 2:06 PM
The two hapless techies who were badly beaten up in a brawl recently, were in fact attacked by megastar turned Union Minister Chiranjeevi's security Wing. This discovery has raised the suspicion that the Union minister was somewhere close by when the brawl took place.
In fact the Supreme Court had recently ordered that security men should be withdrawn for VIP duties unless the particular VIP has a security threat perception, which Chiranjeevi does not.
Chiranjeevi has kept very quiet over the whole controversy but his son Teja, a film star has been blaming the two techies.
Analysts in the complicated complaint and situation averred that the techies complaint was not registered because it was cops against whom the complaint was made. Instead the badly beaten techies were advised not to insist on filing a complaint. As a result of this the scared techies are seeking to underplay the whole episode.
It all boils down to the political ploys of not just Chiranjeevi but also CM Kiran Kumar and other dissident ministers who are naming Chiranjeevi as their Congress chief ministerial candidate for the 2014 elections.
Police ask woman to prove she was raped
Report dated 09/05/2013 @ 7:10 PM
A 32-year-old woman was allegedly raped by her 45-year-old brother. She was a divorcee living in a rented house with her 30-year-old sister also a divorcee in Gwalior. A few days earlier their brother Lakhan Batham approached both sisters and asked them to live with him in their parents house, and a day or so later he allegedly raped the elder sister.
The two sisters reported the incident to the police on duty who refused to lodge an FIR and instead abused them and asked for credible proof of rape.
The women went back home and the rape victim then told her sister that the only proof would be her own death and she chose to commit suicide by hanging herself in her room.
After her death the police lodged the FIR and the superintendent of police said prima facie it appeared that the victim committed suicide out of shame or social disapprobation.
Police authorities have now ordered the institution of an inquiry to look into the matter and submit a report forthwith.
Supreme Court asks : Have Delhi police gone berserk?
Report dated 27/04/2013 @ 2:20 PM
As the Supreme Court took suo motu cognizance of a police officer slapping a young woman who was protesting the rape of a five-year-old so hard that she bled from her ear, it asked if the Delhi Police have gone berserk.
The Court ordered the Delhi Police Commissioner to file an affidavit and explain the deployment of the force against people who were protesting the rape of the child. The apex court also referred to other cases of police brutality and was angered by the lack of respect or fear of the law among police.
The Bench then directed chief secretaries of UP, Rajasthan, Haryana, Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh and Goa to file affidavits detailing the implementation of the court's 2006 judgment mandating the setting up of the State Security Commissions by adopting one of the three models suggested by the National Human Rights Commission, Julio Ribeiro Committee and Soli Sorabjee panel.

A woman in her 20s was summoned to a police station in Amritsar late one night to bring her husband's medications to him. He was behind bars for his alleged connection with an Amritsar NDPS case.
The woman said the Assistant Sub Inspector stopped her and allegedly tore her clothes and the other policemen beat her son when he protested.
The Punjab Congress women's wing, led by Vice President Nimisha Mehta took up the issue and staged a protest outside the police post calling for the ASI's dismissal and suspension of other police officers who forced the woman to compromise after she wanted to registere a complaint against the offending Inspector.
