Life series: Wrong Judgment

April 5, 2010

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?

My thoughts:

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.

    It is indeed a very wrong judgment to let the siblings get a share in their brother’s property against his will and that too by adopting unfair means of bribing the judicial system.
    Appalling and pathetic 😦

    I agree with you that we all hope, someday this never ending series of corruption tinted tales occurring at all levels of society comes to a halt and we can live in peace with the feeling that law and order exists to protect us not to prey on us.


    kanagu: Yes CB.. we are hoping that to happen… hope that happens soon 🙂 🙂

    Unfortunately, our judiciary is quite corrupt although at times, they do come up with some good judgement…You know, if we had a jury system like the US, bribing judges would become harder…

    kanagu: Yes.. they coming up wih some good judgments but still they are corrupted which is not a good thing 😦 😦

    This case is a no-brainer…Things would have been different if the brother had bought the land with inherited money which he didn’t share with his siblings…

    kanagu: Yes… this is nothing case… but its happening…

    Sorry, for the typos…It should read ‘judgements’ instead of ‘judgement’…

    kanagu: ah.. no problem bones. 🙂 🙂

    HUH!!! 😯 What kind of crap judgement is this! 😡

    I can understand if the property is inherited, but this is bought by the man’s own hard work rite?

    kanagu: 😦 😦 😦

    Yea I’ve known similar judgements that happened to ppl very close to us, so I m not completely surprised. What kind of moronic judges and judgement system do we have??!! It’s shocking to say the least!

    kanagu: Its all done by money 😦 😦

    The judicial system in India is changing but the change is slow!! This is case is a clear example of it! But trust me this judgement would be reversed because things are changing!!! we can only hope that the justice is served1!!

    kanagu: But the time and money one has to get that judgement is really high!!!

    The lesson for us- Anyone can be bought? Very sad.

    There is a case in Mumbai related to driving in inebriated state and killing two people- Noori Haveliwala was released on bail today because “the police failed to file chargesheet within the stipulated period.” -

    It is hard to believe they forgot to do this!

    kanagu: When they get money they forgot to do anything and everything… quite sad….

    Unfortunately, our judiciary is not above corruption.

    kanagu: True sir…

    Thats really bad. If ppl who are part of the judiciary system, get down to such cheap levels, what kind of example they are setting ???

    And ppl will do anything to get some property, eh ??? In such illegal ways and that too siblings ???? Crazy world !!!

    kanagu: There are lot of things which we don’t know happening there and not all are good.. 😦 😦

    tomorrow even our neighbors would file a case against us for a share of our property and some idiotic judge would make a similar judgement ! Crazy country we live in !!! do u have links to that story ?

    kanagu: I have came to know about this from my colleague… no online links available… 😦

    This is the reason why people are scared to go to court for genuine cases. They should be ready to spend money and waste time also. When will judiciary come out of this corruption racket?

    kanagu: True… many hate to go thru this system…

  12. April 7, 2010 12:16 am

    u serious? this is a true incident?
    anyways…like they say…anything can happen in india!

    kanagu: Yes dude.. thats a real incident….

  13. April 7, 2010 11:58 am

    Yes, justice is no longer in the judical system. Do you know any statistics, as to how many people really get justice by going to court…?

    kanagu: First we should get to know whether it was there then 😀 😀 I don’t know those statistics 😦 😦
    It is pathetic that higher officials are more corrupt!!!

    kanagu: Yes 😦

  14. April 7, 2010 9:11 pm

    This is always always the case. There’s no question of truth or justice. I think the scales they have in courtrooms, they depict, money on one side and judgement on the other!

    kanagu: Many are like that pals.. which is a real cause of worry 😦

  15. April 7, 2010 10:33 pm

    So very sad ..this exposes the reason behind lack of trust by the citizens of India in their judicial system

    kanagu: 😦 😦 😦

    Sad to hear such things kanagu.. 😦

    kanagu: 😦 😦

    The judiciary has always been corrupt. Even if not as bad as certain lowly criminal thugs who pass off as politicians, they are quite corrupt. They don’t have the guts to stand up to the legislature or the executive either, and they cannot ensure justice.

    All the ills are because of the system, which can be traced back to the worthless constitution. It’s a good for nothing piece of bulky pages of paper, typical of the lowly third world. The constitution is generally crap compared to the ones of civilised countries, it’s a constitution that’s meant for an uncouth third world empire (after all, it’s actually is a cheap copy of the unwritten constitution of the then British empire).

    kanagu: The system is really like that which hell bent towards corruption but the thing if they don;t do what they are saying their life will be at risk which is really scary… 😦 😦
