Mob attacks cops, snatches away dowry torture accused

BHUBANESWAR: A mob pelted stones at a six-member police team, torched their jeep and snatched away a dowry torture accused from them at a Nayagarh village on Monday night. A few policemen were injured in the attack.

The incident took place at Kalapangi village within Fategarh police limits when the police had gone to the house of Gadadhar Mallick to seize articles allegedly given to him as dowry following a complaint from his estranged wife Sulochana.

Sources said the police had taken Gadadhar’s arrested brother Chhabi, a gram rakhi (village watchman) who is a co-accused in the dowry case, with them. “We did not anticipate any problem because the co-accused is a gram rakhi. But when the cops were busy accounting the seizure, some men threw stones at them, burnt the police vehicle and damaged another van in which the seized articles were being loaded,” said SP (Nayagarh) Seshadev Mallick.

As the injured policemen ran to safety, the attackers fled with Chhabi. A team led by the SP went to the village late in the night to rescue them after they received an SOS call from them. “Police have identified a couple of the culprits and are looking for them,” the SP said. The injured policemen include a sub-inspector, two assistant sub-inspectors, a lady constable, two home guards and the driver.

Police said the accused Mallick brothers have married sisters, Anjana and Sulochana from Gohirpada village. The women have filed separate dowry complaints against their husbands and in-laws. The brothers are accused in both the cases though police went to their house on Monday specifically on the complaint of Sulochana. Police are yet to arrest Gadadhar, who is absconding.

The latest attack on a police party comes over a month after a mob in Sundargarh district killed an ASI and injured four others while they were trying to execute an arrest warrant on August 11. After police apprehended the accused, he had raised an alarm following which villagers gathered and assaulted the group.

Wife files false dowry case, husband granted divorce on grounds of cruelty


Agencies : Mumbai, Sun Sep 23 2012, 11:58 hrs



Filing of false criminal complaints amounts to cruelty under the Hindu Marriage Act, the Bombay High Court observed while granting divorce to a man who was accused of dowry harassment by his wife.

Santosh (name changed) had approached the high court challenging a September 2006 order passed by a family court in Pune dismissing his petition seeking divorce from his wife on the grounds of cruelty.

Santosh had married Rekha (name changed) in November 2001. However, soon thereafter disputes and differences surfaced between the couple. The wife then lodged a complaint of harassment and causing hurt against Santosh and his family with the Pimpri police.

According to the husband, a lower court quashed the criminal complaint filed by his wife after observing that there was insufficient evidence. After this Santosh moved the family court seeking divorce on grounds of cruelty, which was dismissed.

A division bench of Justices V M Kanade and P D Kode after perusing the evidence and judgement of the lower court observed that the complaint lodged by the wife was false in nature.

“In our view, filing of a false criminal complaint itself amounts to cruelty within the meaning of section 13 (i) (a) of the Hindu Marriage Act,” the bench said.

Quashing and setting aside the Pune family court’s order, the high court allowed Santosh’s appeal and granted him divorce.





Death for the married man !! : Constable kills sister’s husband, his mother to ‘avenge’ her death

Takes his own life after shooting dead two with service pistol

A 24-YEAR-OLD Delhi Police constable, Vijay Kumar, shot dead his sister’s husband and his mother before taking his own life outside Alipur police station in Outer Delhi on Wednesday night.

Police said he committed the crime to allegedly avenge the death of his sister, who died nine years ago.

Kumar made a PCR call at 9.39 pm and identified himself after shooting dead Prakashwati (62) and her son Manoj (35) – the husband of his sister Rachna who reportedly committed suicide barely 18 months into her marriage, police said. Within two hours of the PCR call, Kumar shot himself in the head.

Police said Kumar, a resident of Sonepat, was only 15 when Rachna took her life. In her suicide note, she held no one responsible and said she decided to take the extreme step because she couldn’t conceive, police said.

Kumar, according to police, held a grudge against Manoj – a teacher at a municipal corporation school in Hamidpur.

Rachna’s parents had alleged after her death that Manoj killed her for dowry. Subsequently, he was booked, imprisoned and released on bail.

While the trial was on, Manoj married again five years ago. He and his second wife Vijeta has two children. The second marriage, police claimed, further angered Kumar and his family in Sonepat.

From the court proceedings, Kumar felt that the judgment might go in favour of Manoj.

On Wednesday, a third hearing was held in the Delhi High Court. The judgment is expected in a month, but Kumar became restless because Manoj has already been acquitted in the dowry death case, police said.

Kumar, whose duty was to start at 8 pm at the Security Wing, reached his office, collected his 9mm service pistol and went to Prakashwati’s house in Bakhtawarpur. “

“He asked Prakashwati to accompany him to meet Manoj, who used to live a kilometre away from his mother’s home. Manoj was helping Vijeta prepare for her BEd course when the two reached his plac”,” a police officer said.

Manoj wife Vijeta, who witnessed the killing, said” “I heard my mother-in-law call out my husband. I peeped through the door and noticed a young man in a safari suit standing next to her. When my husband stepped out of the door, he fired at him and then at my mother-in-la”.” “

“The man fled as I cried for help. My mother-in-law died on the spot, while my husband was declared dead on arrival at BJRM Hospital in Jehangirpu”i,” she said.

Police said the first PCR call was made at 9.39 pm by Vijay, who informed that two persons had been shot in Bakhtawarpur village. Ten minutes later, another PCR call was made by Manoj’s neighbour, confirming that two persons had been shot dead, police said.

When police arrived at Manoj’s house and Vijeta informed them about her husband’s trial, the officers suspected that Kumar could be involved in the crime.

Soon after, a police team found a body outside Alipur police station with a bullet in the head. Eyewitnesses told police that they saw Kumar sitting near an electricity pole outside the police station.”

“A service pistol was lying near Vijay’s body. In all, Vijay fired six rounds…three at Prakashwati, two at Manoj and one at himse”f,” Deputy Commissioner of Police (Outer) B S Jaiswal said.

A ballistic test will be conducted to establish whether the bullets were fired from the same pistol.

IRS officer filmed ‘unnatural sex’ with wife, used video to blackmail for dowry

Express news service : Nagpur, Fri Sep 21 2012, 00:34 hrs


An Indian Revenue Service (IRS) officer has been accused of taping acts of “unnatural sex” with his wife, and using the video to blackmail her for more dowry.

The officer and his wife — also an IRS officer — stayed as probationers at the hostel of the National Academy of Direct Taxes (NADT) in Nagpur before leaving in April to take up postings in Bangalore.

The 28-year-old woman went to the police with her father , posted in Nagpur, on Wednesday. Offences have also been registered against the officer’s mother and sister.

Police Inspector Chakshupal Bahadure told The Indian Express that both officers came to NADT in December 2010. While the man proposed in 2011, they got married this February.

“While staying at the NADT hostel, the man stealthily made a video of unnatural sex with her,” Inspector Bahadure said. “When the lady found the video in her husband’s laptop, he started threatening and blackmailing her saying he would make the tape public if she didn’t bring a Maruti car and Rs 1 lakh in cash,” Bahadure said. He said the woman’s family had given gold worth Rs 10 lakh to the man’s family.

“But they were asking for more… the mother and sister of the husband physically harassed her,” Bahadure said. He declined to name the accused IRS officer.
