Life series: Wrong Judgment
The case came in before of the magistrate. It’s a case of land dispute between the heirs. The case reads that one among the heirs got lucky with some business and got some 25 lakhs rupees few years ago. With that he bought a land near some highway then and decided to sell some of those lands now to do his sibling’s marriage. Now the case was filed by his brothers and sisters that they have a right on this property.
The judgment for this case is quite outright, magistrate thought. A property bought by a man not necessarily need to be shared with his/her siblings. Magistrate too thought so. He heard the case from both the ends and as he thought it’s quite ridiculous from his brothers and sisters side to file a case regrading a property their brother own. He reserved his judgment by 2 days.
By the next day, magistrate gets a call from district judge asking to give the verdict in favor of the opposition party. Its quite a shock for him as how a district judge can say like that?
And its not a real hard thing to guess what would have happened. I always have a thought that our judiciary system is doing well but they too falter. And I couldn’t blame them as they too become a part of the system of corruption in India. What is the most disheartening thing its not in the lower level but in the upper level who has the right to question the misbehavior. Hope this chain somewhere breaks and give a new hope to us.
