Write a story around the theme, ‘Justice delayed is justice denied’.
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.
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
