Expressing concern over the growing incidents of human rights violation, former Chief Justice of India R M Lodha said people have been slaughtered in the name of cow protection, couple have been murdered in the name of love jihad, artists have been threatened to be beheaded for their creativity,  activists have been booked on the charge of sedition  and the culprits are yet to be brought to book.

Speaking on the occasion of Human Rights Day, Justice Lodha said though we celebrate human rights day but in ground reality it is different.

 “Should religion be a factor when two adults fell in love? People have been killed in cases of love jihad. The violators of human rights are not accountable to society. There is laxity in the police action.  This question is shaking me every day,” he said.

Referring to the recent controversial film “Padmavati”, Ex-CJI said that movie is a creation of an artist but the film makers have been threatened, sets were destroyed. “Is it human rights which we are talking about when we have laws compatible to the international declaration of human rights?”

“In the name of cow protection, human beings were slaughtered. Cow vigilantes are mushrooming everywhere. Sedition charges are being invoked against activists. Cartoonists, actress and students were charged with sedition charges,” Justice Lodha said without taking any activists name.

“Do we really value human rights? Despite adequate laws, constitutional safeguards and strong judiciary, we are not able to achieve the goals of protection of human rights,” he said.

Pointing out that the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) has become a toothless tiger and it has no true impact on achieving the human rights, Justice Lodha, who presided as President of the International Institute of Human Rights which has organized the function,  urged for a robust mechanism to protect the human rights in the country.

Justice  R K Agrawal, a sitting judge of Supreme Court, in his theme address on the issue of ‘Right to a Fair Trial  and Due Process of Law’ said Constitution, apart from giving specific protections against retrospective criminalization, double jeopardy and self-incrimination, provides the accused with a right to fair trial under Article 21.

“India has adopted the Adversarial Criminal Justice Model which caters to public interest by punishing wrong doers and setting a deterring effect for the society at large. However, it works in favour of private interest by preventing wrongful conviction and protecting the life and liberty of the accused,” he said.

UP shocker: 15-year-old cancer survivor gang-raped, then raped by passerby too #WTFnews

Cancer patient gang-raped, seeks help from commuter who rapes her again

  • A 15-year-old blood cancer survivor was taken to a secluded place and raped by two persons
  • She was looking for help on the main road when a passerby stopped and raped her
  • The accused passerby — Banthara resident Virendra Yadav (45) — has been arrested
LUCKNOW: A 15-year-old blood cancer survivor was gang-raped by two youths in Sarojininagar late on Saturday night. When she sought help from a passerby, he too forced himself upon her on the pretext of offering help.

The accused passerby — Banthara resident Virendra Yadav (45) — was arrested. Yadav works at a construction site, police said. Later, Sumit, one of the accused, was also arrested.

Around 8.30pm on Saturday, Shubham, an acquaintance of the survivor called her up and invited her to go out and eat noodles. She left home around 9pm and met him, who took her on his bike to a secluded place near Chhilawaan Masjid in Sarojininagar. After chatting for over 20 minutes, Shubham took her to his friend Sumit and insisted that they should go and eat noodles, said cops.

After covering some distance, however, the two youths gang-raped her in a dark secluded spot. After they fled the scene, the girl somehow collected herself and managed to reach the main road. “I was unable to walk or speak properly and was trembling with fear,” she told police.

She was looking for help on the main road when Virendra, who was passing by, stopped. “Despite being betrayed by an acquaintance, I trusted Virendra and sought his help as he appeared to be a good samaritan. He, too, took me to an isolated area and raped me before fleeing the spot,” the survivor stated in her complaint.

Following the repeated violations, the girl couldn’t move from the crime scene for afew hours and reached home — about 3km from there — well past midnight. When her family learnt about the crime, her father lodged a complaint with Sarojininagar Police around 4.30am.

Girl in hospital, now stable

The survivor — hailing from a very humble background — is undergoing treatment and is now in a stable condition. Her father has a small business in Sarojininagar. Youngest of three daughters, though she isn’t fighting cancer anymore, she nurtures a dream of obtaining higher education, said her father.

ASP (east) Sarvesh Mishra said Shubham belongs to the girl’s locality and efforts are on to arrest him.
