Bangalore: Sunita (name changed) from Allahabad, who was working as a domestic help in Bangalore, ran away from the house unable to bear the physical and psychological abuse she was being subjected to by the couple who had employed her.

The 13-year-old, who took shelter in a dhaba, was rescued and brought before the Child Welfare Committee (CWC). An FIR was registered at the K.R. Puram police station on April 4, 2005.

One year and nine months down the line, the case is still pending before the court. The accused, in the meanwhile, have left the city. The girl, who had waited for over a year in the city in the hope of justice and monetary compensation, began to get impatient and wanted to go back to her parents. CWC members had to put together some money and send her to Allahabad.

Karnataka prides itself in initiating action against those employing children aged below 14 ahead of the Central Government directive banning it came to force on October 10 last.

The Labour Department, which was till then booking cases under the Minimum Wages Act (1948) stepped up raids and rescue of child labourers after the law was passed. But what has been happening to the children after the rescue is another story, as Sunita 's case testifies.

Thanks to delay in police investigation and court procedure, the lives of many abused children hang in the balance.CWC has written a letter (dated January 4, 2007) to the Additional Director-General of Police (Training) seeking to know the status of the case of Sunita and 18 other children that had come up before CWC and in which FIRs have been filed.

This will help CWC "make a rehabilitation plan for each of the children concerned and ensure they get speedy justice," the letter says.

Sheela Devaraj of Association for Promotion of Social Action (APSA), a member of CWC, points out that there is delay in the preliminary investigation and framing of charge sheets even in cases where there is clear violation of basic rights and obvious proof of physical abuse.

Laws can be effective only when there are convictions that act as a deterrent, says Nina C. Naik, chairperson of CWC.

D.V. Guruprasad, ADGP, Training, says that he has sought a report on the status of the 19 cases from Bangalore City Police Commissioner Neelam Achutha Rao. He is yet to get a reply.

Mr. Guruprasad adds that as an officer "personally interested" in issues of women and child welfare, he is making an effort to speed up the process of police investigations although the cases pending before courts are beyond his purview.

Hey baby Girl love u girl friend...........      JUSTICE DELAYED IS JUSTICE DENIED

Jawaharlal Nehru, on the afternoon of March 19, 1955, while addressing the members of the Punjab High Court at the inauguration of its new building in Chandigarh, said, “Justice in India should be simple, speedy and cheap.” He remarked that litigation was a disease and it could not be a good thing to allow any disease to spread and then go out in search of doctors. Referring to an adage that “Justice Delayed is Justice Denied”, Pt. Nehru stressed that disposal of cases must not be delayed.

Securing Justice – Social, Economic and Political to all citizens is one of the key mandates of the Indian Constitution.

2nd story


Dr.Shepard was convicted of murduring his wife. He was sent to prison for 10 yrs. He lost his medical practitioner 's license from the conviction. Later, the saved evidence and the DNA testings prived that it was the window washer who killed Dr. Shepard 's wife. Dr. Shepard died before he was proved innocent and the window washer wasn 't tried in the court as he fled.

Hope you like that baby girl.


  This has been explicitly made so in Article 39 – A of the Constitution that directs the state “to secure equal justice and free legal aid for all its citizens.” But the experience of last 57 years shows that the state has failed to dispense quick, inexpensive justice to protect the rights

There was a young black boy who was murdered in the south by a group of white men. For over 50 years (maybe 60) there was no bringing to trial these men. When the leader of the group was in his 70s, he was brought to trial and convicted. But many people feel that this was justice denied because he lived a full life before being brought to trial. (This is a famous case, can't remember the name of the murder victim). Possibly others who were involved have died by now.

Google the "Sam Shepard" murder case ( about 1953 if memory serves me correctly) in Cleveland, Ohio. Dr Shepard was convicted of murdering his wife. He was sent to prison and served ten years. Lost his medical practitioner's license from the conviction. Evidence was saved and DNA testing done in the latter 1990's proved it was the window washer who killed Dr Shepard's wife. Dr Shepard died before he was proven innocent and the window washer did not go to trial as he should have. I think this is an excellent example for your civic's class. Best of luck and I hope this is useful to you

JUSTICE DELAYED IS JUSTICE DENIEDJustice delayed is justice denied is an old saying. It means that if timely justice is not provided to the sufferer, it loses it importance and violates human rights. The Indian judicial system still lives in old age. It has been observed that a number of cases are pending in courts for a very long time. It is reported that more than 34 lakh cases are pending for disposal in the High Courts and the number of cases pending in the subordinate courts has crossed two crores. Former Chief Justice of India Honble Mr. Justice B.N. Kirpal remarked, In lower courts a judicial official presides over eighty cases per day on an average, out of which seventy are adjourned. Victims have to go through a harrowing time while seeking justice. We often hear about such justice being delivered either after the death of justice seeker or at that time when it has become redundant and useless for him. This approach of justice delivery system brings forth a pathetic situation prevailing all around.In the Uphaar case it is shocking to observe that it took six years to establish that the 59 people died because of criminal negligence on the part of the cinema management and the Delhi government. It was clear from day one that nobody would have died had proprietors of the cinema hall followed safety rules but because the wheels of Indian justice move at the pace of our national vehicle thebullock cartit took six years for justice to be done. And, now Ansal family has appealed in Honble Supreme Court against the judgment of Honble Delhi High Court. And it can be surely anticipated that the justice is really done by this apex court.There are three enemies of the administration of justice: uncertainty, delay and costs. Uncertainty and delay both create a feeling of confusion and uneasiness in the minds of the litigants, although lawyers and judges seldom realize this. It is important that the sufferer must get timely justice. In addition to this complicated and expensive legal procedure, justice is delayed more often than not.Speedy trial is the essence of criminal justice and there can be no doubt that delays in trial by itself constitutes denial of justice. It is prejudice to a man to be detained due to delay in trial. Speedy trial is an integral and essential part of the fundamental right of life and liberty enshrined in Article 21 of the Constitution of India. In United States, also speedy trial is one of the constitutionally assured rights. European Convention on Human Rights too provides that everyone arrested or detained shall be entitled to trial within reasonable time or to be released pending trial. Moreover, the procedure should be reasonable, fair and just in each proceeding involving persons fundamental rights.The time has come when we should think seriously over the multiplicity of appeals and evolve a suitable process to avoid delay.With a view to provide quick justice to the people, fast track courts have been established throughout the country.The 11thFinance Commission has recommended the establishment of 1,734 additional courts known as Fast Track Courts for speedy trial of sessions and other cases. As, on February 28, 2002 -1015 Fast Track Courts had already been set up throughout the country. Undoubtedly,it has been proved that fast track justice is the need of our. And this time, a fast track court of Jodhpur to conduct the expeditious trial in the rape case of a German tourist by two auto rickshaw drivers became the medium of this fast justice. This judgment further shows the sincerity of our judicial system in making justice available to the poor victims as early as possible so that the victim do not undergo the same physical as well mental trauma of that unforgettable criminal torture in the name of getting justice. Judgment delivered by the Additional District Judge Jodhpur is considered to be one of the quickest court verdicts.As a result, on the rape that took place on May 11, 2005 fast track court of Jodhpur made history by delivering its verdict on June 1 i.e. within 21 days of the incidenceand awarded a sentence of life imprisonment to the two accused. It is true that some amendments have been made in civil laws to give relief to parties; still laws should be amended, so that parties may get relief immediately. O.8 R. 1 of CPC٭is an appreciable measure to mitigate the chances of unnecessary delay which usually happens in civil matters. Civil cases should be heard day to day and should not be adjourned over and over again. The number of courts should be increased in proportion to increasing in population. We hope that these measures will certainly prove helpful in quick justice in our society.This old adage tells a tale that there would be no meaning of justice if it is not given at appropriate time. At the same time, it reveals that when justice cannot be given on time, what would be the use of such a complex enormous system erected for this well entrenched value. And, further, from where the machinery will come to realise the concept of rule of law in reality? There are many such issues which want serious pondering over this relevant issue.
