International Court of Justice
2517 KJ The Hague
Chief Justice of India
Supreme Court of India
Borders Divide jurisdictions but families reunite them. The chain to this link is the global citizen. However, this inter-nation cross-flow has with the passage of time generated a new crop of legal issues in the realm of private international law which comprises rules a court would apply whenever there is a case involving a foreign element.
It is rather ironic that while the British Parliament is working its way through The Human Fertilization and Embryology Bill to legalize parentage from in-vitro fertilization births and recognize same sex couples as legal parents of children conceived through the use of donated eggs, sperms or embryos, in India, 27,000 children die each day, thousands of children go missing each month, many NRI/PIO/OCI/foreign citizen children are kidnapped from abroad and brought to India, and thousands of children are denied access to their father by estranged and vindictive Indian women.
However, India is yet to enact any concrete law that will help prevent childhood deaths, kidnappings, denial of visitation rights to fathers and stop International parental child abduction (removal or retention of a child across international borders by one parent). International parental child abduction to India, either in contravention of court orders or without the consent of the other parent, is sadly an increasing phenomenon that causes acute emotional distress to the abducted child.
A fugitive foreign citizen/permanent resident kidnapper who is declared a proclaimed offender in matrimonial and custody proceedings in his/her country of citizenship/domicile (because of the wrongs he/she did to her ex-spouse and in-laws) kidnaps the foreign citizen children of the marriage and is provided safe haven in India (sometimes enabled by kidnapper’s family’s political/bureaucratic/legal connections). The left behind NRI/PIO/OCI/foreign citizen parent cannot even see or talk to his/her children removed to India and is denied all access because the kidnapper is allowed to file false complaints with the Indian legal system using the easy to misuse laws.
The NRI/PIO/foreign citizen kidnapper is easily able to obtain injunctions from the Indian guardianship courts (despite the lack of jurisdiction) against the return of the kidnapped NRI/PIO/OCI/foreign citizen children to their place of habitual residence (because the Indian Courts ignore all current and even pre-existing custody orders from the foreign courts). These occurrences find daily mention but no straightforward solution for the NRI/PIO/OCI/foreign citizenunder any Indian law.
The Government of India is in the process of acceding to the Hague Convention on Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction. However, before that is done, and India becomes a member of about 80 contracting convention nations, an appropriate Indian legislation will have to be enacted for its implementation. In this way children removed to and from India will be reunited with their aggrieved parent and India will no longer be a sought after destination for parking removed NRI/PIO/OCI/foreign citizen children from foreign jurisdictions. Also, foreign courts will be encouraged to permit NRI kids to freely visit India without fear of abduction. The draft of the Indian Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction Bill 2007 meant to secure the prompt return of children wrongfully retained or removed to India proposes to ensure that the rights of custody and access under laws of contracting states are respected by providing for prompt removal of wrongfully removed children.
The salient features of this proposed law are as follows:
A Central Authority for performance of duties under the Hague Convention for securing the return of removed children by instituting judicial proceedings in the High Court.
The appropriate authority or a person of a contracting country may apply to the Central Authority for return of a removed child to the country of habitual residence.
The High Court may order return of a removed child to the country of habitual residence but may refuse to make such an order if there is grave risk of harm or if it would put the child in an intolerable situation. Consent or acquiescence may also lead to refusal for return of a child by the court.
The HC may refuse to return a child if the child objects to being returned upon it being satisfied that the child has attained an age and maturity to take into account his views.
Based on the experience from other countries that have ratified the Hague Convention, it is critical that all loopholes that will prevent the implementation of this be plugged. This (the exploitation of loopholes)is likely to be a serious problem in India and the political/bureaucratic/legal system will continue to provide a safe haven for the NRI/PIO/OCI/foreign citizen kidnapper, especially if the kidnapper is the mother. One example of a loophole is that abducting parent starts custody proceedings in India under the 30 year old laws before/in parallel with proceedings started by the left behind parent under the Hague Convention. Before India signs the Hague convention,appropriate laws will have to be enacted to prevent the exploitation of loopholes. In this way, children removed to and from India will be reunited with their aggrieved parent and India will no longer be a safe haven and sought after destination for parking removed NRI/PIO/OCI/foreign citizen children from foreign jurisdictions.
Furthermore, India should take steps to prevent child abductions within India, stop children being taken away from the gender that is denied custody rights, and penalize kidnappers and custodial mothers/fathers who deny visitation to the other parent.Mostly Indian women bargain child custody as blackmailing tool to get easy Divorce and huge sum of Alimony.Even Father is a natural guardian, but hardly 2% of Fathers get Child custody. Custody Should be Equal to both gender and child should be raised with both Parents love and Affection.

The Gujarat Gaurav Raksha Samiti (GGRS) today threatened to file a suit in the High Court against Union Women and Child Development Minister Renuka Chowdhury and National Commission for Women (NCW) Chairperson Girija Vyas for ”deliberately lying and lowering the credibility of the two women institutions.” The samiti which has written to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, seeking immediate action against the two women leaders, also demanded a public apology from the duo for deliberately lying to the people through print and electronic media.
Taking strong exception to Ms Chowdhury’s Gujarat poll-eve statement that the State had not implemented the centre’s Domestic Violence Act, 2006, Samiti president Vijay Wadhwani charged the minister with having defamed and deeply hurt the sentiments of Gujarati people by her ”totally baseless and false statement”.
In fact, Mr Wadhwani claimed, that Gujarat was among the first states to implement the Domestic Violence Act, and ranked sixth in the country as far as the registration of number of cases was concerned.
The newly-formed apolitical organisation had created a flutter in political circles here, by putting up unnamed banners across the city yesterday where in it had threatened to unmask two national-level leaders before the Gandhi Nagar Gruh today. Sensing trouble, city police had made elaborate security arrangements in and around the venue since morning before the group members started assembling at the stipulated venue with banners, placards, newspaper clippings and video tapes of Minister Chowdhury and Ms Vyas.
The samiti president also criticised Ms Vyas, who had reportedly told a news channel that proposal had been sent to the Law Ministry to enhance punishment to dowry givers.
”This is a totally contradictory statement as the official website of the National Commission for Women– ncw.nic.in — mentions about its proposal to exclude dowry givers from punishment,” Mr Wadhwani said and warned the UPA government against the NCW’s proposal to exclude dowry givers.
JAIPUR: She pleaded ‘Papa, Papa’. But it failed to change the minds of her parents as they abandoned their 12-year-old girl at the Lalgarh station in Bikaner, local media reported.Sonu, a resident of Khetwali area in Bihar, was happy when her parents told her they were going to visit Rajasthan.
“First I was taken to Ramdevra shrine near Pokhran in Jaisalmer district for prayers. Then my parents brought me to a temple in Bikaner. But at the railway station they told me that I would have to live here on my own,” Sonu said with tears in her eyes.
“I pleaded again and again. I cried. But nothing stopped them from travelling back on the train,” Sonu said.
“They did not even think about where would I live and what would I do in this unknown city.”
“I had gone to the station Saturday night. I saw this girl crying. I asked her why and she narrated everything to me. I brought her to my house in Rampur colony,” local resident Rameshwar Prajapat said.
The residents of the colony took her to the police station where the officials told them to keep her for a few days, hoping that her parents would return.
“I do not want to go back to my parents,” the girl said.
My mother used to beat me regularly and my father never used to stand up for me.”

She is presently staying in a Nari Niketan – a state-run women’s home – in Bikaner. “We will conduct a medical examination and would also try to find her parents in Bihar. The girl knows the name of her parents and knows the area too. But she is not able to give us the exact name and location of the village,” a district administration official said.
Meanwhile, a professor in Rajasthan Agriculture University has come forward to offer shelter to Sonu.
“I want her to be in safe hands. I have offered her shelter. I can take responsibility for her education,” Sunita Verma, assistant professor in Rajasthan Agriculture University, Bikaner, said on telephone Tuesday.
Female foeticide and infanticide are common in India. Poverty, ignorance of family planning and cost of dowry have been cited as possible causes.

New Delhi, Feb 23 (IANS) Bollywood director-actor Rajat Kapoor says women might play ornamental roles in reel life but they are more powerful than men in real life.
“As far as Indian cinema is concerned actresses are still considered decorative while heroes take the cake. However, in real life and specially in relationships, women are more powerful than men,” said the actor who often dons the mantle of director too.
“A woman keeps a family or any relationship intact. In my home I am a slave to my wife (Meenal) and daughter (Rabia),” Rajat told IANS.
Audiences have heaped praise on the multifaceted star for his latest directorial venture “Mithya”, which stars Ranvir Shorey, Neha Dhupia and Naseeruddin Shah.
His stint in Bollywood started as a director with “Tarana”. Soon critical acclaim followed with “Raghu Romeo” and “Mixed Doubles”.
He has no commercial hits to his name yet and most of his films target a niche audience, but he is unfazed.
“I have a certain sensibility and I make films in accordance with that. I am not interested in making an ‘Om Shanti Om’ because it does nothing for me. When I watch it, I am bored.”
As an actor, he started his career with telefilms and television serials. The talented star forayed into big-time acting with the blockbuster “Dil Chahta Hai”. Rajat’s performance was largely appreciated in “Corporate”, “Bheja Fry” and “Khoya Khoya Chand”.
Currently, the actor is hosting a celebrity chat show on entertainment and lifestyle TV channel NDTV Good Times and National Geographic’s quiz show “Lufthansa Nat Geo Genius”.
However, he resists any plans of acting in soap operas or making them.
“I am not interested in doing television serials. Selling serious content is difficult through daily soaps. Trivialisation of news and TV is going on worldwide and one can’t fight it.
“Moreover, one can’t make a good serial because the economics of the small screen are so bizarre.”
Rajat’s forthcoming films include “I am 24″, “Halla” and “Raat Gayi Baat Gayi”.
HUMAN CHAIN PROTEST on misuse of 498A I.P.C at Mylapore on 23.2.2008
Save Indian Family Foundation (SIFF) is a registered non-profit, non-funded, non religious, non political and non-governmental organization espousing mainly the cause of saving the Indian Family System from the assault and onslaught of Legal Terrorism.
We have a global membership of 8000 victimized husbands consisting mainly of high earning and/or borrowing middle class IT professionals, Artists, CAs, Doctors, Engineers and Entrepreneurs, Consultants etc. We have a well established presence in the Internet Websites and Blogs. We are constrained to take to streets to attract the attention of the PUBLIC towards our cause. While we strongly fight towards our selfish agenda we also fight for some good common cause
We also espouse the cause of family oriented elder Women, Pregnant Sisters and Minor Girls and innocent Children. They are systematically victimized and tortured as they happened to be the relatives of the husbands. They are the real and worst sufferers of the Legal Terrorism.
We believe the Great Indian Family System is being systematically attacked at the roots so as to eliminate and destroy the precious eastern family values which we consider a treasure to nurture and boast of. We believe thevested western interest that veiled considerable financial clout are behind this attack with an avowed objective of preventing India from becoming the Super Power of the World. This would be evident from the funding pattern of the so called women’s organization like Lawyers Collective. Center for Social Research etc who channel their funds from west
We strongly oppose the misuse of 498A I.P.C, DV Act D P Act etc by the unscrupulous, greedy and unethical wives who are encouraged by the Judiciary, Police and the Advocate fraternity due to the misplaced sympathies or with ulterior motives.
We have great respect for Women. We also consider our mother and sisters in our family as women. We consider that it is only the husband who gives more than 50%status and respect and we in fact married her while 498a stake holders has extreme lip sympathy only
We demand women be given Equal Rights, Responsibilities and Authority in the Society. We demand true empowerment of women by way of 50% reservation for women in Legislature, Judiciary, Bureaucracy, Police and Army
We are determined to fight against this well organized crime of Blackmail Racket in all its forms and manifestations perpetrated in the name of destitute wife by the unscrupulous wives, Police, Judiciary, Media and the Legal Fraternity.
We strongly believe the intention of the Politicians irrespective of Party affiliations and Legislature is not to persecute the Families but only to prosecute the Dowry takers and wife beaters according to LAW.
Instead of protecting the WOMEN of BPL (Below Poverty Line) familieswho are really tortured and beaten up and day in and day out for whose benefit this law was enacted the stakeholders of Blackmail Racket has hijacked the law and systematically extorting the educated and naïve YOUTH of India and destroying their families for the sake of money. They do not file cases on Rishshaw wallas and coolies who torture their wives even in public as they do not have huge money to be extorted
We strongly believe that under the guise of protecting women the Police, Judiciary and Legal Fraternity has formed an invisible Cartel and persecuting the Indian Family System and created an 498a Industry with a turnover of not less than Rs3000 crores per annum and happily sharing the booty while the Media is unwittingly aiding the cartel
We have been peacefully conducting public protests / morhcas / dharanas / conferences throughout our country and abroad for the past 5 years.
We publicly protest the gross apathy and seek the attention of the Government, Judiciary and the Bureaucracy who have failed to arrest the misuse of the above legal provisions, by unscrupulous money minded extortionist blackmailers
We are protesting in public near Nageswara Rao Park, Mylapore on 23.2.2008 between 9 AM to 6 PM, We expect a gathering of minimum 300 victimized husband with their family members. This public protest is likely to be inaugurated and held in the presence & blessing of Mr. Prasanth – Cine Personality,Mr. Prandurang Katti – Save India Family Foundation,
We submit that we are all law abiding citizen of this country and opposed to the misuse of criminal laws in all its forms and manifestations enacted for the benefit of WIFE only and to the detriment of sister-in-laws and mother-in-laws by the unscrupulous elements of the society which is leading to the eclipse of The GREAT INDIAN FAMILY SYSTEM
We seek your Valuable your patronage and support for the just cause we are fighting against and help us in reaching the General Public with our message and demands

Rashtrapati Bhawan has now moved from e-governance to gender governance. APJ Abdul Kalam had gone all out for better people-government interface using technology through different e-governance modules. And now President Pratibha Devisingh Patil has embarked upon the gender parity agenda for the government.
The President called officials from the Women and Child Development ministry, Rural Development ministry, Human Resources Development ministry and Agriculture ministry to know what the government was doing on gender issues.
Sources in the government told the Hindustan Times that the President was keen to know how the government was ensuring that gender parity was achieved in government schemes. “It was a kind of briefing taken by the President,” a senior government official said.
Patil wanted to know more about the actual impact of the government policies for women on the beneficiaries. Although government officials presented a slew of figures based on different studies the President wanted a more concerted effort, a senior WCD ministry official said.
The WCD ministry informed that 52 ministries have set up gender budget cells but still the allocation for women is not enough. The president was informed that a review of all laws related to women was underway to make them more gender sensitive.
The HRD ministry officials spoke about special schemes and incentives to bridge the enrolment gap between boys and girls. They also told the President about the improvement of the girl child in primary education since the launch of Sarva Siksha Abhiyan.
Kamini, 26, a pretty girl from Sonepat, married an engineer from Gwalior and settled in Pune last year. Within six months of the marriage, the couple filed for divorce in the Sonepat district court. The reason: growing marital discord after Kamini’s husband found out that she was buying air tickets from Delhi to Pune for her lover in Sonepat from his credit card.
Neeta, 24, who runs a beauty parlour in Sonepat, married a police constable from UP. Within a few months, she felt he was not the kind of person she wanted to spend the rest of her life with. She filed for divorce and even slapped her husband in court.
These two cases from Sonepat, a small town in Haryana, are reflective of a growing trend in small town India, where an increasing number of young women have been filing petitions for separation. Says Bhupeshwar Dayal, a lawyer who handles several divorce cases in Sonepat’s district court, “Till 5-6 years ago, you could hardly see any woman in the court premises. Today, there are lots of young, pretty faces, most of whom are here for cases relating to divorce and maintenance.”
Divorce, Dayal says, is no longer a taboo and a divorced daughter is not unwelcome in her parent’s homes anymore in small towns. “Recently, I had the case of a girl who sought divorce because she thought her husband was giving his mother more attention than her. In the new socio-economic environment in small towns, women do not feel shy of walking out of marriage,” says another lawyer, not wishing to be named.
“Social trends originating in metros slowly percolate down to smaller towns and from there, to villages. Today, girls in smaller towns, especially those belonging to the upper class are as aspirational as their metro counterparts and wish to follow the latter — whether it is their dress, food habits or keeping late hours. The small town male just cannot digest this,” says Arun Bhardwaj, a Sonepat lawyer who now practices in Delhi High Court.
While both Dayal and Bhardwaj blame the shift on soap operas on the small screen, sociologists say that soap operas can have only a limited effect in influencing social mindsets. “The fact is that there is a new Indian woman everywhere — whether it is in smaller towns, metros or villages, thanks to globalisation. She is not willing to tolerate violence and mental torture, even if it means getting a divorce,” says Ranjana Kumari, director, Centre for Social Research, New Delhi.
MUMBAI: Mehraj Shaikh, former husband of Manyata, on Friday filed an application in the court against Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt and Manyata for allegedly getting married in violation of Muslim marriage norms.
Shaikh, incidentally, faces charges of sending vulgar SMS and threatening Bollywood personalities for extortion.
He moved an application before the Bandra metropolitan court praying for legal proceedings against Sanjay Dutt and Manyata for ‘violating the Muslim marriage norms’.
Metropolitan Magistrate Pankaj Shah has admitted the matter and posted the hearing for Saturday.
Shaikh stated in his application that he had married Manyata on April 5, 2003. He has a two-and-half-year-old son from Manyata who is presently staying with the latter’s mother at Hyderabad.
Shaikh claimed in his application that he and Manyata had started living separately but till today, neither of them had sought ‘talak’.
Priced at Rs 51, the book brought out by a group of NGOS for men helps husbands hit back at spouses who make false charges of dowry harassment, domestic abuse and blackmail
NEW DELHI: What would you do if the police were to knock on your door in the middle of the night after your angry wife has filed a false dowry harassment and domestic violence case against you?
Don’t panic. And do not look to the cops for help either. Instead, delay things. Sit on the potty, compose yourself. Call your lawyer. And the neighbours as witness – there have been instances where neighbours have convinced police to leave without making an arrest. Record your conversation with police on mobile phone etc.
Keep your wits about you and don’t go with the cops to police station on a Friday – as the next two days being holidays means you won’t get bail till Monday. Then read Wrong gender biased law/ a guide on how to survive 498A.
Brought out by a group of non-government organisations (NGO) for men, the book, the first of its kind in India will help husbands know how to handle Indian Penal Code 498A, a law which has, of late, been allegedly misused by angry spouses to settle scores with husbands and in-laws. The book will help men deal with false allegations, court cases and arrests. It will be available on stands for Rs51.
Section 498A of India Penal Code came into existence to combat domestic violence and protect women from dowry harassment. For those convicted, it is a cognisable, non-bailable and non-compoundable offence for cruelty filed along with Dowry Prohibition Act.
However, men are crying foul over the misuse of this law and are campaigning to prevent its misuse. Under the aegis of the Gender Human Rights Society, organisations like 498A.org, Rakshak, Save Family Foundation, MyNation, Mothers and Sisters Initiative (MASI) etc, have made representations before the Law Commission, ministries and other fora to voice their concerns. They now plan to file a PIL in the Supreme Court.
“Through a Right to Information application, we discovered that approximately 58,000 498A cases are filed each year and more than a lakh people get arrested in false cases. Every four minutes, one man is falsely accused of dowry harassment. And every 2.4 hours, one senior citizen is falsely accused of dowry demands,” said Sandeep Bhatia, president of Gender Human Rights Society.
“The purpose of the book is to enable men to have the information and the necessary tools to protect themselves and family from legal terrorism. This document and the supporting material in the form of judgments/ links/ articles will enable him to fight this extortion racket known as Section 498A of the Indian Penal Code,” said Mahesh Tiwari, a Supreme Court lawyer who is also part of the campaign. The book also contains suggestions on retaliatory measures a husband and his family can take in case they are charged with false allegations.
“Filing a false case is an act of cruelty and hence, a strong ground for divorce. But before that, if a husband anticipates a situation where his wife or in-laws can frame him, he should immediately file a complaint in police against threat, abuse or blackmail he faces from his wife or her family. Women members of the family too should lodge a complaint before National Commission for Women to bring pressure to bear on the wife. But most importantly, file a case under IPC section 182 for perjury and criminal defamation,” Tiwari recommends.
And if at all you are arrested then: “Throw the rule book at their face. Make all sort of demands. Don’t co-operate and be non-confrontational while asserting your rights. Be stubborn. Whether you are guilty or not is for the trial court to decide,” the book says.
(NEW DELHI) The Gender Human Rights Society is publishing this extraordinary book, Wrong Gender biased Laws which is a compilation of various press releases, detailed booklet(s) about the proposed Sexual harassment in the Workplace law of 2007, Domestic violence law, Dowry law/ IPC 498a survival guide, mens human rights demands, etc.
This book is expected to provide some much needed weapons , to forces fighting against radical feminists and to those fighting against the unscrupulous wives and their parents who misuse the gender biased laws. It also attempts to explain why the current gender biased laws as well as the new ones proposed by the radical feminists are a recipe for social disaster. Whether they achieve their goal will be hotly contested by the readers. But one thing is sure: Their endeavor is long overdue.
Date and Place:

Sandeep Bhartia, President of the Gender Human Rights Society says “Law proposals in pipeline have an aim of getting press in control of radical feminists by Law. Another aim is to increase money and jobs reserved for women rights activists. This leads to distorted propaganda for earning money ” & “Any Law that through old men out of house even if it is called Domestic Violence Law from Oct 2006, is wrong and Supreme court Judgment of Batra Vs Batra, that say, the Domestic violence act can be applied to only those houses, that the husband owns or has rented or has some ancestral share, is correct .
Dr. Anupama Secretary www.498a.org. A NRI dominated organization says “Good compilation of research articles”

Police sources said his wife, Anshu Sharma, a trainee pilot with a commercial airlines, was away in Hyderabad. His mother and two daughters, who were in another room, heard the gunshot and rushed to his bedroom in villa no 20 where they found him lying in a pool of blood.
The neighbours then rushed to the house and the family physician was called by Anshu, who had by then been informed of the tragic incident. The family rushed him to Apollo Hospital where the doctors declared him brought dead. His body was later taken to Safdarjung Hospital for autopsy. Police officials said that though they were investigating the reason for Sharma taking the extreme step, prima facie it seemed that personal reasons pushed him over the edge.
“Preliminary investigations suggest that Sharma was not happy with his marriage. He often had prolonged arguments with his wife. He was depressed over the past few days. However, his family members have refused to talk to the police. They have claimed that since the unfortunate incident was a personal matter, they would not like to share this with the police,” said Darshan Lal Mallik, DSP, Faridabad.
However, police said they had not found any suicide note on the spot. “He used his own licensed revolver to shoot himself,” added the officer.
Sharma is survived by his wife, two teenage daughters and his ailing mother. This is another incident of a personal firearm, kept for security reasons, leading to a tragedy. Source :>>
New Delhi, Feb 13 (IANS) The Supreme Court Tuesday granted bail to seven convicts of the 1993 Mumbai serial terror bombing case but denied the relief to four others,including fugitive underworld don and blast mastermind Tiger Memon’s sister-in-law Rubina Suleman Memon.
A bench of Chief Justice K.G. Balakrishnan also ordered the Maharashtra government to constitute a medical board to examine whether one of the Memon brothers, Yusuf Abdul Razak Memon, sentenced to life in jail, is actually suffering from chronic schizophrenia and deserves bail on that ground.
The bench, which included Justice R.V. Raveendran and Justice J.M. Panchal, decided to take up Yusuf Memon’ bail plea Feb 22 after examination of his mental condition by the medical board.
The bench dismissed the bail pleas of the four lifers, saying: “They do not have fit cases to be admitted for bail.”
The three lifers denied bail were Sardar Sahawali Khan, Muzamil Umar Kadri, Zamir Sayed Ismail Kadri.
The seven convicts who were eventually granted bail were Khalil Ahmed Sayed Ali Nazir, Shahnawaz Hajwani, Mujib Sharif Parkar, Sudhanwa Sadashiv Talavdekar, Ehsan Mohammad Tufel Qureshi, Sikkandar Issaq Hajhwane and Issaq Mohammed Hajwane.
Rubina and Yusuf Memon were convicted for allowing their houses to be used for conspiracy meetings and storage of arms and explosives. They had also given their van for the bombings that shook the metropolis on March 12, 1993 and killed 257 people.
Sardar Shahwali Khan was sentenced to life term and a Rs.100,000 fine for hatching the conspiracy, while Muzamil Umar Kadri was given life sentence and a Rs.125,000 fine for arranging arms landing in Shekhadi and for conspiracy.
Similarly, Zameer Sayyed Ismail Kadri was awarded life sentence and a Rs.125,000 fine for being a party to the conspiracy and arranging arms landing at Mumbai’s coastal area in Dighi.
The convicts, who were granted bail, were sentenced to 10 years or less for their respective roles in the terror attack and had spent a considerable period in jail.
For example, Khalil Ahmed Sayed Ali Nazir was given 10 years’ rigorous imprisonment and a Rs.125,000 fine for arms landing in Shekhadi area of Mumbai.
Pakistan’s Human Rights Minister, Ansar Burney, says that he has traced an Indian who has been held in prison in Pakistan for 35 years.
Mr Burney said that Kashmir Singh was arrested in 1973 on espionage charges, the official APP news agency reports.
He said Mr Singh was sentenced to death in Pakistan under the Official Secrets Act by a court martial in Lahore.
But the Indian embassy in Pakistan says that Kashmir Singh is not among 55 PoWs officially listed as missing.
An embassy official told the BBC that they had received no word about him from the Pakistani authorities either before or after the minister’s statement.
He said the embassy cannot verify the identity of the prisoner without consular access to him. The official said that the names of prisoners can sometimes be changed.
Hundreds of servicemen and civilians were imprisoned by India and Pakistan during hostilities between the two sides in 1965 and 1971.
Mr Burney said Mr Singh has been in a condemned prisoners cell ever since his conviction and has become mentally ill.
The minister was already known as a prominent Pakistani human rights campaigner before becoming human rights minister.
He says he was first informed about Kashmir Singh several years ago by members of the Indian community in London, APP reports.
But he was unable to locate Mr Singh, despite visiting over 20 prisons across the country in relation to his campaign for prison reforms and prisoners’ rights.
APP said that Mr Singh was finally discovered in the death cells during a visit by Mr Burney to the central jail in Lahore.
The minister said that Mr Singh had not received a single visitor or seen the open sky and, like other condemned prisoners, was locked in an overcrowded death cell for more than 23 hours a day in conditions which the minister described as “hell on Earth.”
At the time of his arrest, Mr Singh was reportedly a husband and a father of three young children.
Mr Burney urged anyone with information on the whereabouts of Kashmir Singh’s family in India to contact the Ministry of Human Rights in Pakistan or the Ansar Burney Trust.
AHMEDABAD: She had paid him back in his own coin and had got a cop to shoot him down. After being tricked and spurned by her lover a woman got her beau murdered by hiring killers with the same money that he had paid, to purchase her silence.
Police say that the accused, Chetna Upadhyay, had gone to the extent of scripting the murder of her lover, Sanjay Mistry, 31, exactly like one of the lies he used to dodge her.
The Sola police has solved the mystery of an the murder of Mistry – an entrepreneur. His body was found slumped inside his car near Science City on January 4 with two bullet wounds in his neck and stomach.
He had been shot from point-blank range.The cops have arrested Chetna along with a police constable posted a Shahibaug headquarters, Deepak Khant and another accused Amit Upadhyay. Chetna had an affair with the deceased who was married.
Chetna, said police, had given Rs 2 lakh to the two to kill Mistry. “This was part of the Rs 4 lakh package that Mistry had allegedly given to Chetna to buy her silence on their affair and also to convince her to keep distance,” said police investigators.
“We were clueless in the beginning due to contradictory statements from various people connected with Mistry — his elder brother Bharat, partner Paras, his business rivals and his girlfriend Bhavna — but we got no links about how and why the murder was committed. When inspector VM Jani took over the investigation of the case, he again interrogated the accused.
During questioning Chetna confessed to have killed him. After that, we questioned her and got the links in the case that lead to one clue after another,” said AK Jadeja, deputy commissioner of police, Zone I.
Chetna, a resident of Naroda, claims she came in contact with Mistry in 2004 and got married a year later. It was much later that Chetna learnt that Mistry was already married and that he stays in Sola with his wife and children. Enraged, she cut off all the links and got engaged to a youth called Sunil.But Sanjay persuaded her to stay with him and bought her a flat in Sun City in Bopal on rent. The relation soon soured again and Chetna registered a complaint for domestic violence with Sarkhej police in 2006. Sanjay resorted to out of court settlement with Rs 4 lakh.
“Chetna nursed a grudge against Sanjay. She exacted vengeance with help of her friend Amit Upadhyay, a rickshaw driver. Amit had roped in his school mates — Deepak Khant, a constable with Shahibaug headquarters and Dinesh, resident of Santrampur, a petty criminal. They did a recee for three days before the incident. On January 3 night, they stopped his car at a deserted stretch around 10 pm and then shot him thrice. One missed him but two found mark,” said VM Jani, inspector and investigating officer in the case. Police have yet to lay their hands on Dinesh, who is absconding.

First it was honourable Mrs. Renuka Chowdhury , Union Minister , Women and Child Development Ministry found deliberately lying during Gujarat Assembly Elections , 2007 ( SEE HER EXPOSURE IN OUR WEBSITE WITH A VIDEO CLIPPING AND THE RELATED STORY) and now it is the turn of one of the highly controversial commission , National Commission of Wife – Sorry – Women to be exposed lying.
Some weeks back, there was a programme on a highly reputed NDTV TV channel in Hindi called as News Point where honourable Ms.Girja Vyas , Chairperson of the NCW was having a healthy debate with Dr.Anupama Singh , a member of Save India Family Foundation (SIFF) on the subject of DOWRY IN INDIA.
Ms.Girja Vyas was found saying that a proposal has been sent to the parliament for amendment in dowry prohibition act,1961 where “DOWRY GIVERS TOO HAS SUBSTANTIAL PUNISHMENT PROVISION AND THE PUNISHMENT HAS TO BE INCREASED FOR THEM TOO ”.
Now Friends , YOU WILL BE SHOCKED on this statement as the fact is that the proposal which NCW has sent says – DOWRY GIVERS SHOULD BE EXCLUDED FROM PUNISHMENT. This fact is available on the website of NCW at http://www.ncw.nic.in in legal amendments proposed column.
AN EXTRACT FROM WEBSITE OF NATIONAL COMMISSION OF WOMEN LEGAL AMENDMENTS PROPOSED Amendment to the Dowry Prohibition Act,1961:
To transfer the substantive provisions under the Indian Penal Code.
Dowry givers should be excluded from punishment.

See the video and you will realize that how cheaply she is deliberately lying.
Both these high profile public servants needs to be sacked with immediate effect. There should be no place for liars in the public life.
Oh God , please save our beloved innocent Indians from these type of public servants.
We Can not Arrest Indian women, Even if she murder her husband, We Need Proof
But We can Arrest Indian men only, on suspicion, Even If his wife run away with her lover
We Want Justice; Why this Bias, Under constitution of India, All Are Equal, If Police Cann`t Arrest criminal women,who drive her husband to commit suicide; then its Mockery of Constitute, and Judiciary.
KOLKATA, Feb. 10: Married men can’t take it anymore. Rising prices, mounting responsibilities and their wives implicating them in dowry cases is driving men to suicide. The latest data released by the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB 2006), shows that the ratio of married men to married women who committed suicide in 2006 is 5:3. The 2006 report also states that the national ratio of men to women committing suicide is 64:36.
The NCRB report further states that a high pendency was observed in Dowry Prohibition Act (43.6% each) in 2006. A total of 7.8 per cent cases of Cruelty by Husband or Relatives were found false or related to mistake of law.
A 30-year-old man, Pushkar Singh, committed suicide by hanging himself from a ceiling fan at his home in Jankipuram area of Vikas Nagar in Lucknow. In his suicide note, he wrote: “I was sent to jail after a false dowry case was lodged against me by my wife Vinita and her family, who demanded Rs 14 lakh as compensation. Neither my father nor I had seen such a big amount in our lives. We even sold our house to contest the case.”
Singh is just one of the several thousand men who committed suicide after being implicated falsely in dowry cases by their wives and in-laws. Save Indian Family Foundation, a countrywide network of support groups for such men and their families, has been fighting for men’s rights to be included in the national legal framework for a long time.
“We come across such cases of men who turn suicidal after their wife and in-laws try to extort money from them after filing a false case under IPC 498A, frequently. We do our best to help such people through counselling. But it’s the Indian legal framework, which considers the rights of wives, but not that of men, their mothers and sisters, that is at fault,” said Mr Srinivas Rao, treasurer, SIFF. He cited a case in which a man from Kalyani attempted suicide after he and his family were falsely implicated under 498A. “Ultimately, we arranged for a settlement between the two parties, in which the man had to pay Rs 1.5 lakh to his wife and in-laws,” Mr Rao said.
SIFF says the high ratio of male to female suicides is largely due to domestic cruelty against men. The NCRB report 2006 says that more men in the age group of 30 and 44 years committed suicide than those in other age groups. It was observed that 72.2 per cent of the suicide victims were married while 20.7 per cent were unmarried. The number of married men who committed suicide was 55,452 and number of married women who committed suicide was 29,869 in 2006.
False cases registered under IPC 498A, which is non-bailable, make it difficult for complainants who have genuine cases to get justice. The same NCRB report also states that the proportion of female suicides is more under dowry disputes.
A court in Ernakulam has unearthed “violence against man” in a case arising out of a woman’s petition alleging that her husband unleashed domestic violence on her.
Dismissing the petition filed by Ms Honey Jacob of Udayamperoor in Kochi, the Ernakulam Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate Cherian K Kuriakose said she had raised the allegation only to cover up her illicit relation with a colleague of hers.
Ms Jacob who was working as an executive in a leading private insurance firm had levelled several allegations against her husband Shelly Jose who is a partially disabled man.
She said he had physically abused her and insulted her in front of family members. He did not let her go to her parental house for delivery and was forced to move out of the house she had purchased with her money. He had also refused to release the custody of their child.
The woman also said among other things that her husband propagated scandals against her.
However, the court found that Honey had filed the complaint only after Shelly accidentally came across several intimate messages in Honey’s cellphone on November 7 last year. These were sent by Mr Harikrishnan, who was then the firm’s assistant regional manager at Kottayam.
“A few of the messages extracted would show that there was a clear illicit relationship between Harikrishnan and the petitioner.
It is unfortunate that the Domestic Violence Act has not provided any punishment to such intruders who mar the peaceful family life of the innocent,” the order said. It also quoted several messages sent and received by Ms Honey Jacob.
Violence against man
“The evidence discloses that this is not a case where there was perpetration of violence against a woman, but is a clear case of violence against man in the domestic relationship for which there is no penalty,” it said.
The Domestic Violence Act that came into force a year ago allows courts to punish husbands who beat, threaten or even shout at their wives or live-in partners with jail of up to a year and a fine of Rs 20,000.
In India if a married women run away with her lover, police arrest her husband on suspicion that he killed her and hiding her body when they unable to trace her.
In India, if husband catch his wife with her lover, in that insult if she commit suicide, police take action terming suicide as dowry death.
Same, In India if a man commit suicide and left a note blaming and making his wife responsible for his death, why Indian law is not arresting or taking action on his wife.
Because GREAT INDIA, gone to dogs.
Legal Terrorism of India takes away one more Husband’s Life.
More than 52000 Indian Husbands commit suicide every year as per Crime Bureau of India
When a wife commits suicide when caught with her lover, not only the husband, but his mother sister are also arrested without any evidence. Why such biased treatment to husbands suicide,even suicide note make wife responsible?
