Bofors case: SC likely to hear plea tomorrow

Bofors case: SC likely to hear plea tomorrow

The Supreme Court is likely to hear tomorrow the politically sensitive Rs 64 crore Bofors pay-off case, amidst recent media reports suggesting a financial quid pro quo for the Rs 1,437 crore Howitzer gun deal in 1986.

A bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra is scheduled to take up the plea by BJP leader and advocate Ajay Kumar Agarwal, who had challenged the Delhi High Court May 31, 2005 judgement quashing all charges against the Europe-based Hinduja brothers in the case.

The apex court had on October 18, 2005 admitted his petition which was filed after the CBI failed to approach the top court with the appeal within the 90-day deadline following the High Court verdict.

The hearing assumes significance in the wake of a demand in Parliament by ruling BJP MPs for reopening of the probe into the Bofors kickback scandal after the media reports quoting Swedish chief investigator Sten Lindstrom’s suggested the alleged bribery at the top level.

Agarwal, who had contested the Rai Bareli Lok Sabha elections in 2014 against Congress President Sonia Gandhi, had said he will also draw the attention of the apex court that he had written a letter to the Enforcement Directorate seeking investigation into the trail of the kickback money under the Foreign Exchange Management Act (FEMA), 1999 and the Prevention of Money Laundering Act, 2002.

In the July 28 letter to the ED, he has claimed that the alleged crimes were committed continuously till the year 2006 when two London accounts held by Italian businessman Ottavio Quattrochi, who was accused as being one of the middlemen in the deal, were de-freezed.

The BJP leader had said he was writing a letter to the CBI asking it to file an affidavit about the facts and course of investigation in the case, as during the brief hearing on December 1, 2016, the agency had told the apex court that the authorities had not permitted it to file an appeal against the May 31, 2005 verdict.

Agarwal said he will try to convince the apex court through his petition that the “High Court had quashed the charges against the accused persons on technical grounds and the order was totally perverse which is liable to be set aside.”

Justice R S Sodhi of the Delhi High Court, since retired, had on May 31, 2005 quashed all charges against the Hinduja brothers — Srichand, Gopichand and Prakashchand — and the Bofors company and castigated the CBI for its handling of the case saying it had cost the exchequer about Rs 250 crore.

Before the 2005 verdict, another judge of the Delhi High Court, Justice J D Kapoor (since retired) on February 4, 2004, had exonerated late Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi in the case and directed framing of charge of forgery under Section 465 of IPC against the Bofors company.

The matter was last listed on February 28 this year when it was adjourned.

The apex court had on October 18, 2005 allowed Agrawal to file an appeal against the high court verdict in the absence of any appeal by CBI.

The December 1, 2016 hearing had taken place after a gap of almost six years since August 12, 2010.

The Rs 1,437 crore deal between India and the Swedish arms manufacturer AB Bofors for the supply of 400 155mm Howitzer guns for the Indian Army was entered on March 24, 1986. The Swedish Radio on April 16, 1987 had claimed that the company had paid bribes to top Indian politicians and defence personnel.

The CBI on January 22, 1990 had registered the FIR for the alleged offence of criminal conspiracy, cheating, forgery under the Indial Penal Code and other sections of Prevention of Corruption Act against Martin Ardbo, the then President of AB Bofors, alleged middleman Win Chadda and Hinduja brothers.

The CBI had alleged that certain public servants and private persons in India and abroad had entered into a criminal conspiracy between 1982 and 1987 in pursuance of which the offences of bribery, corruption, cheating and forgery were committed.

The first charge sheet in the case was filed on October 22, 1999 against Chadda, Quattrocchi, then Defence Secretary S K Bhatnagar, Ardbo and the Bofors company. A supplementary charge sheet against Hinduja brothers was filed on October 9, 2000.

A special CBI court in Delhi On March 4, 2011, had discharged Quattrocchi from the case saying the country cannot afford to spend hard-earned money on his extradition which has already cost Rs 250 crore.

Quattrocchi, who fled from here on July 29-30, 1993, has never appeared before any court in India to face prosecution.

He passed away on July 13, 2013. The other accused persons who have died are Bhatnagar, Chadda and Ardbo.

Unfortunate that child marriages are done by girls parents: SC

Unfortunate that child marriages are done by girls parents: SC

The Supreme Court today expressed dismay over the prevalence of the practice of child marriage despite the existence of the Child Marriage Prohibition Act and termed as unfortunate that this was being done mostly at the behest of girl child’s parents.

The court was hearing a plea questioning the validity of a provision permitting a man to have physical relationship with his wife, even if she was aged between 15 and 18 years.

During the hearing, the top court said striking down of such provision in section 375 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) would amount to creating an offence.

Section 375 of the IPC, which defines the offence of rape, has an exception clause that says intercourse or sexual act by a man with his wife, not below 15 years, is not rape.

“It is a hard reality and is unfortunate that most of the child marriages happening in the country are done by parents of the girl child. However, to this, there are odd exceptions when a minor boy and girl fall in love and marry on their own,” a bench of Justices M B Lokur and Deepak Gupta said.

It also sought to know whether it can create an offence by striking down the exception 2 of section 375 of IPC which the Parliament has refused to do.

Advocate Gaurav Agarwal, appearing for NGO Independent Thought, said by amendment to CrPC in 2013, the age of consent for sexual intercourse by a girl, which was earlier 16 years has now been increased to 18 years.

He said that exception 2 to section 375 of the IPC still retains the age of consent as 15 years, due to which there is a huge gap of three years in the age of consent for a married girl child and an unmarried girl.

Agarwal, assisted by advocate Vikram Shrivatava, said that exception 2 to section 375 of the IPC was discriminatory and violate Article 14 of the Constitution.

Taking note of the arguments, the bench said, “We have to accept this hard reality. These kind of marriages are still happening in the country and if we are going to strike down this exception, then what would happen to the child born from such marriages. We have to keep all aspects in mind.”

Agarwal said the court can strike down the exception like it did recently in the practice of triple talaq among Muslims for being arbitrary and discriminatory.

He contended that this classification has no rationale nexus with the object sought to be achieved as the reasoning behind increasing the age of consent to 18 years in 2013, was that a girl below that age is incapable of realising the consequences of her consent.

“If this is the object for increasing the age of consent to 18 years of age, then marriage of girl between the age of 15-17 years does not make the girl mature enough (mentally or physically) for the purpose of consent. Thus, it is discriminatory,” Agarwal said.

He cited the fourth National Family Health Survey of 2015-16, and said there were 26.8 per cent of brides in the country who were married below the age of 18 years of age.

In the third Survey of 2005-06, the figure was even larger and 46 per cent of women (23 million brides) were married before the age of 18 in the country, he added.

The Centre, in its affidavits, had admitted that child marriage were still happening in the country due to uneven economic and educational development.

“It has been therefore decided to retain the age of 15 years under exception 2 of section 375 of IPC, so as to give protection to husband and wife against criminalising the sexual activity between them,” it had said.

It had said that lawmakers had taken a pragmatic view regarding the issue of ‘marital rape’ as marriage being a social institution was the bedrock of any society and hence, needs to be protected.

“Exception 2 of section 375 of IPC envisages that if the marriage is solemnized at the age of 15 years due to traditions, it should not be a reason to book the husband in the case of offence under the IPC,” it had said.

The Centre also gave details of number of prosecutions that have been instituted over the last three years.

The apex court had on August 9 said the raging issue whether to make forced marital intercourse and sexual acts, part of offence of rape in penal law, has been extensively debated and it cannot be considered as a criminal act.

Earlier, the apex court had in 2015, made National Commission for Women (NCW) party to explain how the offence of rape in the Indian Penal Code (IPC) afforded an exception to a man to have physical relationship with his minor wife and still not qualify it as crime.

The NGO in its petition sought direction to declare exception 2 to Section 375 of the IPC as “violative of Articles 14, 15 and 21 of the Constitution to the extent that it permits intrusive sexual intercourse with a girl child aged between 15 and 18 years, only on the ground that she has been married.”

It has also referred to the provisions of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act (POCSO), 2012, and said these provisions were contrary to the IPC provision.

The POCSO provision provides that physical relationship with a minor constitutes the offence of rape and it does not exclude such relationship between a man and his minor wife.

With MBBS Aspirants’ Interest In Mind, SC Allows 2 Medical Colleges To Admit Wards; Extends Cut-Off Date [Read Judgments]

News August 31, 2017

Live Law News Network

Considering larger public interest and interest of students who have cleared NEET examination but were not admitted in any medical college yet, the Supreme Court has given a go-ahead to two medical colleges barred by the Centre from admitting second batch of students for academic session 2017-18 citing various deficiencies.

A bench headed by Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra held, in two separate petitions, that the competent authority of Government of India, which barred the medical colleges — Shri Shankaracharya Institute of Medical Sciences at Bhilai, Chhattisgarh, and the Apollo Institute of Medical Sciences & Research at Murukambattu village, Chittoor, Andhra Pradesh — from admitting over 150 students in the academic session 2017-18, took a view contrary to the opinion of the oversight committee, which had held that various deficiencies in the medical college and explanation was acceptable and plausible.

“We, accordingly, quash and set aside the impugned decision (of the Centre) to the extent that it bars the petitioners to admit up to 150 students in the academic session 2017-18. Instead, we direct the respondents to permit the petitioner college to take part in the current year counselling process which is still in progress. The cut-off date for completing the admissions in respect of the petitioner college, however, will stand extended till 5th September, 2017.

“The respondents shall make available students willing to take admission in the petitioner college through central counselling, in order of their merit. This direction is being issued in exercise of plenary powers of this Court under Article 142 of the Constitution of India, in the peculiar facts of the present case to do complete justice and in the larger public interest, so that aspiring students who have not been admitted to the 1 st year MBBS course for the academic session 2017-18, in order of their merit in NEET examination, will get an opportunity to be admitted in the petitioner college,” the bench ordered.

The bench, however, made it clear that the “MCI or the Competent Authority of the Central Government is free to inspect the petitioner college as and when deemed fit and, if any deficiency is found, after giving opportunity to the petitioner college, it may suitably proceed against the college in accordance with law”.

The apex court passed the order in two separate petitions.

In one of the petitions by Shri Gangajali Educaion Society, the petitioner had established a new medical college named Shri Shankaracharya Institute of Medical Sciences at Bhilai, Chhattisgarh, from the academic session 2016-17 onward.

It was issued a conditional letter of permission on August 20, 2016, after which it admitted students in that year. However, after an inspection, the MCI gave a negative opinion and on May 31, 2017, the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare rejected its application while debarring it from admitting students for two years i.e. 2017-18 and 2018-19, and authorising MCI to encash the bank guarantee.

The petitioner moved the Chhattisgarh high court which directed Centre to re-evaluate the recommendations made by the MCI. After granting the petitioner a fresh hearing, the MHFW reiterated its earlier decision and rejected the application.

The Supreme Court held that the Competent Authority has not dealt with the matter as was expected in terms of the direction issued by the court to reconsider the matter after giving opportunity to the petitioners.

The apex court noted that the competent authority did not try to dislodge the finding of the OC that the deficiency of 7 faculty and 7 residents was permissible and the explanation of the college in this regard was acceptable.

Similarly, the bench noted that another reason which weighed with the competent authority was that the explanation of the college that patients go for laboratory investigations after clinical rounds was not acceptable and that no explanation was forthcoming from the petitioner college as to how a renal and neurology patient could be admitted in Intensive Cardiac Care Unit.

“Assuming that the observation is correct, the issue of granting permission cannot be answered on the basis of one stray incident. No finding has been recorded by the Competent Authority that a pattern of such practice is being followed by the college and it has been so noticed from the record and further, that such lapse is opposed to defined medical protocols entailing in revocation of permission accorded to a medical college,” the bench said.

In the petition moved by Apollo Institute of Medical Sciences & Research, the apex court noted that the college was a compliant one and all infrastructure and academic requirements were fully in place.

Mumbai Floods: PIL Filed In Bombay HC Seeking FIR Against Municipal Commissioner, Other Officials For Causing Doctor’s Death [Read Petition]

News August 31, 2017

Nitish Kashyap

A public interest litigation filed by the Retail Traders Welfare Association has sought criminal prosecution against officials of the Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai for causing the death of Dr. Deepak Amrapurkar due to their negligence.

Dr.Amrapurkar was a 58-year-old gastroenterologist working at Bombay Hospital. He left for his home from work on August 29 (day of the deluge) after his wife, Dr. Anjali Amrapurkar, told him that he should leave early due to traffic caused by heavy rainfall and waterlogging.

After covering some distance in his car, Dr. Amrapurkar called his wife at 7:45 pm and later decided to walk the rest of the way as the traffic was barely moving due to heavy waterlogging.

After 2 hours passed, Anjali called the driver only to find out that her husband had decided to walk the rest of the way. With no trace of Dr. Amrapurkar, fear of him falling in an open manhole near his house at Prabhadevi grew. A complaint was filed with the police and the fire brigade was contacted.

Thirty-six hours later, on Wednesday morning, Dr. Amrapurkar’s body was found near a drain opening at Worli shore.

As rainfall subsides, the total death toll confirmed so far is five and 12 are reported to be missing.

In light of this, the petition seeks directions to the Commissioner of Police, who is one of the respondents, to register an FIR for criminal negligence under Section 304 A of the IPC against Municipal Commissioner Ajoy Mehta and other municipal officers.

The petitioner has sought the formation of an advisory committee of ‘renowned ex-bureaucrats and technocrats’ for carrying out a detailed inspection of all the manholes currently existing in the City of Mumbai so that they can suggest ways and means for streamlining the working and operations of the manholes.

It is also stated in the PIL that although BMC is the richest municipal body in Asia, it acted in a negligent and irresponsible manner due to which death traps like manholes are left open on the road.

A direction is sought to the Municipal Corporation to pay a Rs.50 lakhsto any NGO that is working for the city of Mumbai.

Finally, the PIL seeks installation of an iron grill on all drainage systems/manholes of the city immediately so that no such deaths are caused.

This matter will be mentioned before the bench headed by Chief Justice Manjula Chellur on Friday.

Verification: Delhi Bar Council Gives List Of 1,300 Advocates With No Or Illegible LLB Certificate, To Cure Defect By Sept 13 [Read Notice]

News August 31, 2017

Live Law News Network

In pursuance to the Supreme Court’s last week decision granting 15 days for lawyers enrolled with any state bar council to cure the defects in their applications for verification of their LLB degrees, the Bar Council of Delhi has issued a notice with a list of 1,300 advocates whose LLB degrees/ certificate are not clear or not available with the Bar Council.

In a notice posted on August 30, the Bar Council of Delhi said, “Reference Hon’ble Supreme Court order dated August 23, 2017, in transferred case titled Ajayinder Sangwan Vs Bar Council of Delhi & Ors… the following advocates are requested to submit their LLB degree certificates on or before September 13, 2017, on any working day.”

The notice has 1,300 entries/ names of advocates, whose LLB degree is not available with enrolment and verification form or the LLB degree certificate is not legible.

One can go on the bar council’s website and check her or his status.

An advertisement to this effect was also issued by the Bar Council of Delhi on August 29 in a leading English and a Hindi newspapers, as directed by the apex court bench of Justices R K Agarwal and Abhay Manohar Sapre.

The directions of the apex court come in a batch of petitions challenging the 2015 Bar Council of India Rules, which require lawyers to re-register. All advocates enrolled with any state bar council need to verify their LLB degrees after five years.

The Certificate and Place of Practice (Verification) Rules, 2015, were notified in January 2015.

It casts duty on all state bar councils to update the rolls of advocates and verify that all advocates enrolled in the state are practicing advocates who appear before courts and have passed the All-India Bar Examination. The lawyers are required to re-verify their LLB degrees.

This practice is to weed out fake lawyers since elections to many state bar councils are in the waiting with the term of the council already over.

The Supreme Court had transferred before itself all petitions pending before various courts challenging the said Rules.

One such petition was filed by Ajayinder Sangwan in the Delhi High Court in March, 2015, which challenged the Rules on the ground that they were illegally extending the term of State Bar Councils like the Bar Council of Delhi whose term had expired in December 2014.

Meanwhile, the Supreme Court has also directed the varsities to ensure the verification of the LLB Degrees awarded by them in a month’s time without charging any fee.

Submit action plans on Yamuna cleaning before September 4: NGT

The National Green Tribunal has directed some northern states to submit an action plan on rejuvenation and restoration of the stretch of river Yamuna falling beyond the national capital.

A bench headed by NGT Chairperson Justice Swatanter Kumar directed Himachal Pradesh, Haryana, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh to file a complete report in this regard.

“We direct that all the concerned state governments shall file action plan without default by September 4 in terms of our order in relation to the stretch of river Yamuna beyond NCT, Delhi upto Allahabad Sangam. The NCT, Delhi and Delhi Jal Board shall file complete action plan with regard to the Phase-II stretch, falling in NCT Delhi.

“The States of Haryana, Rajasthan, Himachal Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh will file complete and comprehensive report in terms of the order…,” the bench said.

The tribunal also directed the AAP government and Delhi Jal Board to submit an affidavit on the progress of the Phase-I of the Yamuna cleaning project.

While the Phase-I of Yamuna cleaning project aims to bring down pollution levels in the Najafgarh and Delhi Gate drains, Phase-II deals with Shahdara, Barapullah and other drains.

The matter was fixed for hearing on September 15.

The green panel had earlier said that pollution in the Yamuna was of serious concern as it was highly contaminated by industrial effluents and sewage.

It had also asked Haryana and Himachal Pradesh Pollution Control Board to jointly conduct a study of water quality and the flow of Yamuna at the point where it enters Haryana and submit the list of industries located on the catchment area of the river.

The tribunal had earlier banned open defecation and dumping of waste on the floodplains of the Yamuna and announced an environment compensation of Rs 5,000 for those who violated the order.

It had also constituted a committee headed by the Delhi Jal Board CEO to oversee the execution of work pertaining to the cleaning of the river and asked it to submit reports at regular intervals.

The green panel had noted that almost 67 per cent of the pollution reaching the Yamuna would be treated by the two sewage treatment plants (STP) located at Delhi Gate and Najafgarh under the first phase of the ‘Maili se Nirmal Yamuna Revitalisation Project 2017’.

The NGT was hearing a plea on the monitoring of implementation of the ‘Maili se Nirmal Yamuna Revitalisation Project 2017’.

Jiah case : Bombay HC asks lower court to proceed with trial

The Bombay High Court today directed a lower court to proceed with the trial against actor Sooraj Pancholi, accused of abetting the suicide of his actor girlfriend Jiah Khan in 2013.

A division bench of Justices R M Savant and Sandeep Shinde was hearing a petition filed by Jiah’s mother Rabia Khan seeking appointment of advocate Dinesh Tiwari as special public prosecutor in the matter.

Rabia in her petition claimed that she did not want the prosecuting agency CBI’s counsel to conduct the trial on behalf of the prosecution as she did not agree with the CBI’s conclusion that Jiah had committed suicide.

Rabia has been claiming that Jiah was murdered by Sooraj.

The high court today posted Rabia’s petition for hearing on September 11 but said, “We make it clear that proceedings in the trial court not stayed. The trial can go on against the accused person.”

Jiah had committed suicide on June 3, 2013.

Her then actor boyfriend Sooraj was arrested for abetting her suicide on June 10, 2013, but released on July 2 the same year after the HC granted him bail.

The case was transferred to the CBI by HC in July 2014 on Rabia’s petition that police was not probing it properly.

However, when the CBI filed a charge sheet in the case and booked Sooraj on abetment charges, Rabia again petitioned the court seeking a Special Investigation Team to be set up to probe the case afresh.

Rabia was against the CBI’s concurrence with the findings of Mumbai police that it was a case of suicide and not homicide.

The high court had then dismissed her petition seeking an SIT to be set up.

Later, the Maharashtra government appointed advocate Dinesh Tiwari, who had initially appeared for Rabia, as special public prosecutor in the case. This was challenged by the CBI in the high court which said it would appoint its own counsel.

The government had earlier this month informed the HC that it has withdrawn its order appointing Tiwari as prosecutor in the case.
