Sentenced To 20 Years Of Crime, Which Was Not Done, Now The High Court Has Released
Two people from Haryana, convicted of kidnapping a girl, got justice after 20 years. The Punjab and Haryana High Court termed the two as guilty and said that the police fabricated a false story to prove the case. The trial court also did not show seriousness in the case and sentenced it.
The case is of 2001. A 14-year-old girl, a resident of Sonepat, had complained to the police that two youths abducted her and tried to misbehave with her, but he ran away after making noise. In this case, the police registered an FIR on 7 July 2001.
On 11 August 2004, the Sonepat Fast Track Court sentenced Dalbir and Bishan to 2 years. Both filed an appeal in the High Court in 2004 challenging the conviction. After 4 years in a trial court and 16 years in the High Court, they now got justice from the High Court and both were acquitted.
Be sensitive to the crime against women but don’t forget the golden principle of jurisprudence
In its judgment, the High Court said that the story of the prosecution, in this case, has been weak from the beginning. The victim did not scream at all while going with the boys, according to the victim, if nothing was wrong with her, then how did the semen get on her underwear. Why did the police get a private checkup done with a private doctor? The High Court said that the trial court did not consider these aspects. Even if the case is about crime against women, the courts should be sensitive in these matters and also take care not to break the golden theory of criminal jurisprudence.
This is the golden theory of crime jurisprudence
According to the golden theory of criminal jurisprudence, it is important for the accused to prove his innocence, that the prosecution should prove the crime against the accused. It is very important to be above any kind of suspicion while proving guilt.
