Khairlanji: Court Proceedings on 30th June continued….

15Jul07

Atrocitynews brings you a refreshing account of  court proceedings of ‘Khairlanji Massacre’ which is one among top 250+ heinous, merderous atrocities commited every year by caste Hindus on Dalits (Buddhists) in India. In Indian Caste system such sanctity to discriminate fellow beings is derived from age old religious injunctions. The system is so cruel that even today most educated elite Indians do not dare to come forward against it. People still nurture caste in minds and end up marrying within caste. Morover at times they defend it. You can read their comments on Rig Veda Protest section; its a proof of their wish to support caste absurdity on international forums. When can India be free from caste shakles defined by religious framework? Let’s hope that civilised society recognises caste virus early and applies efforts in the direction.

Here is Court Proceeding of Khairlanji Massacre tha is going on in Bhandara Court . The day is 30th June.

Continued from previous session…

—————————-

During lunch break Adv.Sudeep Jaiswal is interviewed by Atrocitynews Corrospondent(A.C.)

A.C.:Sir, Whether protecting the witness by security personnel amounts to custody?
Adv.Jaiswal:Yes, Absolutely right!
A.C.:But if big threat is to his life is presumed?
Adv.Jaiswal:There was no threat to him as in this ‘case’; but if threat is anticipated such application for protection should be made to the police. In this case, the witness did not apply for protection.

————

(Later it was learnt that it`s common practice to provide security with or without application. This is similar to case of Bhaiyyalal Bhotmange.  On 3 p.m.the court re -assmbles. Adv.KHADEWALE rises to cross-examine Mukesh Pusam.)

Adv.Khandewale:You contested the election of Gram-panchyat wherein you got defeated by 2 votes. Is it true that the accused persons worked against you in the election?

(As the cross-examination by Adv.Khandewale is finished , he sits  in his chair.)

Adv.JAISWAL:Sir,the duty certificate of security guard be asked to be produced before the court.
Adv.Ajaj Khan:Sir, that is not neede at this stage & this court has no such discretionary power to  call for the certificate.
Adv.JAISWAL:Sir, my submission is that the witness is being kept under constant pressure by the police& CBI the security guard of this witness is not the actual security guard of the witness. Moreoer this court has ample discretionary power to call for any evidence in any stage of trial accordinng to Cr.P.C.s.99.

Judge:Yes this court can ask for any document or evidence to be brought before the court at any stage of trial.But the duty certificate of the guard is not neeeded at this stage.
Adv.Jaiswal:Yes sir,I would not press for my demand as now it can be prodced at any stage of trial.
ADv.Ajaj Khan:Sir,since Rashtrpal Narnavare is not present today before the court,the next witness Mr,Suresh Khandate be taken for examination first.
Adv.jaiswal:Sir,this is not fair .Then proceedings should be taken on monday;because according to the programme handed over to us by prosecutuion side now it is turn of Rashtrapal  Narnavare.
Judge :But Adv.Jaiswal,What harm you forsee in calling for Khandate ?
Adv.Jiaswal:But Sir,if we call Rashtrapal Narnavare who is not a Key witness for us,he can be examined & crossed on Monday only.
Judge:How much time you will take for his cross examination, we cannot tell now. And since it is alredy 4’0 clock we can utilise the remaining TIME  of around 1 to 1.3hr. We are lagging behind & the court can not afford to loose its precious time.

(The judge  calls for the appearance of next witess, Suresh Khandate)

Judge:Swear to God that whateverever I say will be truth & nothing but the truth.
