These proceedings should be read in continuation of the earlier proceedings of the Commission dated10.1.2018. The complainant had alleged that the priest of Rudreshwara Swami Temple assaulted a dalit boy who had gone there for prasadam. The boy was seriously injured. No FIR was registered by the police. It has been prayed to register the case under SC/ST (POA) Act 1989 and appropriate action in the matter. Pursuant to the directions of the Commission, the Superintendent of Police, Bengaluru vide communication dated 28.2.2017 has forwarded the report dated 27.2.2017 of the Dy.SP Nelamangala which reveals that on 2 1.10.2014 at about 12.30 hours one Sri Sakubettaiah appeared in Nelamangala Town PS and lodged complaint stating that his son Santosh was beaten by priest of temple. He belongs to Scheduled Caste. On 
receipt of complaint Nelamangala Town PS case crime No. 266/2014 u/s 323/ 504 IPC and 3 cl(10) (14) SC/ST Act was registered. During investigation accused Vijay Kumar was arrested and remanded to judicial custody. 
After completion of investigation charge-sheet was submitted in the Court. The case was fixed on 21.4.2017  for hearing before charge. The report further discloses that the D.C. Bengaluru has sanctioned Rs.25,000/- on 23.10.2014 for medical expenses and Rs.1,25,000/- on 4.12.2014 as compensation to the victim. 
Vide proceedings dated 21.8.2017, the Commission directed the D.C., Bengaluru, Rural, to submit report within six weeks about payment of medical expenses and compensation to the victim Santosh s/o Sakubettaiah alongwith proof of payment. However, the report regarding payment of medical expenses and compensation to the victim has not been received till now. From perusal of case file, it appears that the FIR was lodged on 21.10.2014 (date of incident has not been specifically mentioned). Sl. No. 14 of the Schedule Annexure-1 amended SC/ST(POA) Rules, 1995 which is effective from 23.6.2014 reads as under:- Sl No. Name of the offence 14 Denial of customary rights of passage [section 3(1)(xiv))] Minimum amount of relief : Upto three lakh seventy five thousand or full cost of restoration of right of passage and full compensation of the loss suffered, if any.

He is further directed  to apply amended Rules of SC/ST (POA) RuleS, 1995 and to take appropriate steps for payment of balance amount of compensation in accordance with law and also submit report in this regard on said date.

बनारस में पुलिस का अमानवीय चेहरा उजागर, हथकड़ी लगाकर किशोर को बनाया बंधक

न्यूज डेस्क, अमर उजाला, वाराणसी Updated Wed, 13 Jun 2018 10:51 AM IST

वाराणसी जिले की पुलिस का असंवेदनशील चेहरा एक बार फिर सामने आया है। मिर्जामुराद थाने में एक हफ्ते से 14 वर्षीय किशोर को अवैध तरीके से हिरासत में रखा गया है।मंगलवार को थाने गए एक शख्स ने हथकड़ी बंधे किशोर को हवालात में निढाल पड़े देखा तो उसकी तस्वीर खींच कर सोशल मीडिया पर वायरल कर दी। मामला सार्वजनिक होते ही मिर्जामुराद पुलिस लीपापोती में जुट गई। महकमे के अधिकारी भी इस बारे में कुछ भी कहने से कतराते रहे।

कानपुर से बीते बुधवार को चोरी हुआ डंपर जीपीएस सिस्टम की मदद से मिर्जामुराद में पकड़ा गया। चालक और अन्य लोग डंपर छोड़ कर भाग निकले लेकिन मिर्जामुराद के बीरबलपुर गांव निवासी किशोर को मिर्जामुराद थानाध्यक्ष अवनीश कुमार राय ने हिरासत में ले लिया और हवालात में डाल दिया।

हिरासत में लिए गए किशोर ने पूछताछ में पुलिस को बताया कि डंपर चुराने वाले गिरोह के सदस्यों में मिर्जामुराद के डंगहरिया गांव निवासी एक युवक और गाजीपुर निवासी दो युवक शामिल हैं।

पूछताछ की लंबी प्रक्रिया के बाद भी किशोर को अदालत में पेश नहीं किया गया जबकि एक हफ्ते हो गए हैं। किशोर को हथकड़ी भी बांधी गई है। इस बारे में पूछे जाने पर मिर्जामुराद थानाध्यक्ष का कहना था कि किशोर के सहयोग से ही डंपर चोरी में संलिप्त लोगों की तलाश की जा रही है।

किशोर को अवैध हिरासत में हथकड़ी बांध कर क्यों रखा गया है, इस बारे में थानाध्यक्ष ने कुछ भी कहने से इंकार कर दिया। वहीं, एसपी ग्रामीण अमित कुमार ने कहा कि प्रकरण जानकारी में नहीं है। जानकारी कर मामले में आगे की कार्रवाई की जाएगी।

Dear Sir,

I want to bring in your kind attention towards the complaint sent by Dr. Lenin Raghuvanshi, Founder and CEO of Peoples’ Vigilance Committee on Human Rights (PVCHR) on 11th June, 2018.   The brothers (Ajay- 26 years and Vinod 20 years) of Ms. Sheela Vanwasi are in Jansa police station from 8th June, 2018 for the interrogation in the death of 4 years of Ashish.  Police beat her brother a lot, the whole body is swell and blood clotting at many places.  In place of interrogation police is torturing them. This is clear case of violation Judgment of Honourable Supreme Court in case of DK Basu versus Government of West Bengal

Ms. Sheela Vanwasi w/o Mohan Vanwasi is resident of Danupur Bitkuri under Jansa police station of Varanasi. The marriage of Sheela sister in law was on 7th June, 2018 and in that marriage her two brothers (Ajay- 26 years and Vinod 20 years) were also invited.  

When the barat came in the night, Sheels’s son Ashish (4 years old) was sitting in her lap, he descended from the lap and went to see
the DJ band and there were many other children too.
After a while, when her child was not seen in the crowd, they began to look after
 the child. Because few days before her sister in law (husband younger sister) Manju had threatened that she would create hurdle in
 the marriage and you will remember it for life long. With this fear Sheela started searching for her child.
Sheela and her husband went to the Jansa police station on the same night and also called on police helpline number. Sheela and her family searched the child whole night. Next day morning around 10 am the body of the child was found in the open ground. Sheela’s brother Vinod and Ajay also went to the police station with the deseased body. Police stopped Vinod for the interrogation, when Sheela asked why you are stopping him. The police said don’t be afraid we will leave him after interrogation. Her second brother Ajay returned back to home with them.  After returning he went to the market to buy medicine from the way police picked him up.  My both brothers are in police custody along with their bike. Vinod bike Hero Splender U.P 65 CS5613 and Ajay Kumar TVS sports CK 9612.

Whenever Sheela asked the police why they caught her brothers, they got the same answer and would leave after the interrogation. 
Sheela said why would my brother do such a thing that he came for his sister's support? He has fed my son child in his lap. We have lost his life, we are very sad because the police has caught my brother and is troubling us.
Therefore it is a kind request please immediately intervenes in this matter.

Thanking you

Sincerely Yours
