Justice SN Dhingra


Here is a profile of Justice Shiv Narain Dhingra of the Delhi High Court.

Justice Dhingra ended the extortion racket known as Section 498A/IPC in National Capital Region (NCR) through his judgments, starting with the Smt Neera Singh (Verify Income Tax) judgment of 2007.

Below are a collection of his important judgments related to domestic issues such as 498A, CrPC 125 and the DV Act:

The Judgments Of Justice Shiv Narain Dhingra, Delhi HC

It looks like he gets the difficult cases as well:

Justice Dhingra ruled in a case relating to the carnage in 1984.

Here is an excerpt of his judgment

THE Carnage Justice Committee (CJC) set up for the riot victims cites Tyagi’s case as an example of how easy it was for some police officials to escape punishment. The members of the CJC quote the landmark judgment of the Additional Sessions Judge, Delhi, Justice S.N. Dhingra. In his judgment Justice Dhingra said: “The then SHO Shoor Veer Singh Tyagi showed his shoorvirta by getting the innocent persons killed. His successor Satvir Singh Rathi showed his ‘love for truth’ by suppressing the truth and eliminating whatever possible evidence against the culprits that could be eliminated. Other police officials of Kalyanpuri faithfully followed their instructions for not taking any action.”

There is yet another reason that I say that he is great.

Indira Jaising, the famed Indian Feminazi, led a campaign to smear him and  intimidate him.

She also wrote silly articles  attacking justice Dhingra such as  ‘It was a crime that I was born a woman’.

Here is a video of the Afzal case on youtube where she is seen defaming him.

This Feminazi now finds her rear end kicked all over the Internet, for attacking this noble judge, by bloggers affected by the BS she has been peddling.

Here is another aspect of the coordinated attack on Justice Dhingra:

“There was a small group of citizens, including veteran socialists, civil liberties activists and democratic Indians who were deeply concerned over the fact that the new anti-terrorist law made it virtually impossible for any accused to prove his innocence. And they believed Geelani when he said he was innocent. The challenge before this small but committed group of Indian citizens was how to turn public opinion – to make people aware of the dangers of convicting people merely on the basis of police suspicion, without a fair trial, and to create a climate where the life and liberty of a fellow citizen could not be sacrificed at the altar of national chauvinism. This appeared an impossible task even when some of the country’s most prominent citizens formed themselves into the All India Committee for the Defence of S.A.R. Geelani. We will leave it to history to judge whether Geelani and the other three accused were given a fair trial in the designated court. In the defence committee’s view the judge, S.N. Dhingra, made no effort to mask his prejudice, forcing teachers of Delhi and Jawaharlal Nehru University to write an open letter to the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court to ensure a fair trial for Geelani.”

Nandita Haksar says: “There was a small group of citizens, including veteran socialists, civil liberties activists and democratic Indians who were deeply concerned over the fact that the new anti-terrorist law made it virtually impossible for any accused to prove his innocence.”

And I ask her where these bleeding heart citizens, socialists and random junta are, when women and children are being arrested under 498A with no chance given to prove their innocence. The accused in the Parliament attack got out faster than those falsely implicated in a 498A case.

    In four years since the case was fild by the Gulati’s for quashing of FIR no other judge quashed it till now. My papers are speaking for themselves the 340 petition i had filed clearly stated it all. did not matter to Judge Dhingra. Also if the gulati’s had been asked to provide the execution of the judgment dated march 31, 1999 . Gulati lawyer SS gandhi would have his pants on fire trying to prove their innocence.
    why would it matter to a judge if justice was done or not? There is a famous american saying. what goes around comes around. one will reap what you have sown in this life. may be now, me in the next birth. Twenty days afer coming on tis case justice dhingra passed a judgment. my 14 years ofexcruciating pain got complied in 4 pages. you are truly a land mark judge.i only can hope that you find a judge like yourself in your next life on your case. and may you be born a woman with a husband like anuranjan gulati.

    CM(M) 1153/2008


    Through: Mr. S.D. Singh, Adv.


    RAM ASHRAY PRASAD ….. Respondent


    O R D E R

    The petitioner who is an MBBS qualified Doctor and admittedly had
    been in practice before, claims that she was sitting at home despite being a
    qualified Doctor and does not work. The petitioner claimed maintenance against
    her husband who is in service. The Trial Court granted maintenance of
    Rs.4,000/- per month. This petition is made against observation of the Trial
    Court that she was working somewhere and earning around Rs.8,000 to 10,000/- PM
    and that the maintenance granted by the Trial Court was made subject to
    adjustment of the maintenance being received by her under Section 125.
    Since counsel for the petitioner states that petitioner is not
    working anywhere, despite being a qualified Doctor, I consider that as she is
    receiving maintenance from husband, the Court should not allow her experience
    and qualification to go waste. I consider that she should be directed to work as
    a honorary Doctor in some public welfare institute or school free of charges
    where she can take care of health of the poor people.
    Let her come to Court and give an undertaking that she was
    prepared to work without charging anything in any institution named by this
    Court around her house minimum 5 hours a day and 6 days a week, so long she
    receives maintenance from her husband on the plea of being unemployed.
    List on 23rd October, 2008.

    Justice S N Dhingra

    i have heard alot of praise of this nsme ‘Shiv Narayan Dhingra’ever since the new amendments have been introduced to the dowry act. My brother has been framed in a fabricated 498A dowry case. We are very tired and stressed with the outcome of my brothers marriage to this girl from india. We needs advice and help from proffessionals in this feild as to what we can do?

    we have been given threats and ultimatum’s by the girl and her family saying they will have my brother (the husband)and all of his family (us)arresteed at the airport whenever we come to india. They threatened us saying the girl receives more attention in indian law stating ‘larki ka balhra bhaari hota hai’, everyone will beleive us and not you.

    They mentioned how they will have other members of our families in india also arrested in various cases just to be spiteful and create a case.(i have read over the internet that they can file as many cases they want from many different police stations, which they have now done and are still doing)they also approached CAW for domestic violence naming all 6 of my family members in uk. Also my Nani and her 12 year old granddaughter. But we didn’t attend these dates posted 29 january 2010

    The sad thing is we are NRI’s who love india so much because it is our parents roots are grandparent live there, we are always in india we are highly cultured and religious but the girls and their families in india are destroying the name of ‘marriage’ and ‘culture’ they are manipulating the dowry system for their selfish needs.

    We have had enough we want to know how we can fight back and who can we appraoch, especially as the whole case is a lie… the girl has made a whole fake case against my brother and family saying that with in 3 weeks of her marriage she was tortured, hit, not given food,ishtreedhan was taken away from her, our family demanded her for a lot of money, car, fridge,tv’s etc…. (alot of dowry), she then mentioned in the case that she lived with her husband for 2 months very happliy when my brother was only in india for three weeks (passport stamp proves this)…then she states her husband beat her up on 21/06/09…but how would he do that if left india on the 18/05/09 he was in UK, as she is illiterate she doesnt realise that when we go to the airport our passport is stamped and dated…..so we have another proof of her lies.

    She was initially only interested in gaining a visa to UK and not to live with my brother, as she told him i will consumate marriage after arriving to London, my brother mentioned every time he tried to get close to her she would start to cry loud as if she was being ‘raped. She was never deprived of anything while she stayed with us we always went travelling, yatras,shopping, pizza hut,kfc… we have servant to wash clothes and dishes. she never had to do any work, but yet her family claim she was treated like a slave and was tortured.

    Being NRI’s things have become more difficult for us as we don’t know much of the law in india we have also been told that once the police find out you are from abroad they try exorting money out of you.
    we want to press charges against the girl and her family for lieing and creating a fabricated case under 182 and 211 IPC and also 358 of IPC. We also want file a case of dowry on her mother and father as he got his son married to a girl in UK in 2008 and asked them for alot of dowry them selves(fridge, Plasma TV,washing machine, beds dvd player, motorbike, dishes 40,000 rupees everymonth is sent to them from there daughter inlaw from uk, birmingham) and they had to give it, its greedy people like these that have blown the dowry out of proportion, we live in uk what possibly would we want to do with dowry my parents didnt even ask for dowry.

    please advice further as we live in uk how can we fight this case, can u advise us a good advocate any information you give will be crucial for us, hope to hear from u soon

    best regards

    Poonam Rani

    hey I have heard there is a judgment by Mr. S N Dhingra where he has quashed manintainence plea of the wife when her case was baseless and was without merit. Is it right? If yes, can somebody provide me the judgement please?


  9. 10 yashwant May 10, 2011 at 6:26 am


    My self yashwant Bisht I belive in our law but there is so slow manners of decisions taken by our court. From past years our court take many decision regarding the right of human or nature pollution control law govt is so dull or so lazy to implement them. Regarding corruption or terrorism cases why our court or our law experts make such law to control the corruption direct by court order to implement them directly to all Indians.
    Thanx Sir,

    justice dhingra is a true patriot. he was never afraid of advocates, and he never allowed them to ask stupid questions to witnesses. judges like these are the main reason that people still believe in the judicial system.

Some Interesting Stats On Arrests Of Women

In 1930, the British govt arrested 17,000 women for their involvement in the Dandi Yatra (Salt March). During 1937 to 1947 (10 Years), they arrested 5,000 women involved in the freedom struggle. From 2004 to 2006, the govt of India arrested 90,000 women of all ages under 498A. On the average, 27,000 women per year are being arrested under this flawed law. These are stats from the NCRB.

The family of the writer was tortured by the Indian Police in an attempt to extort over a $100,000 by holding them in custody for over a week. The police, in cahoots with the magistrate and the PP, did this due to the ridiculous allegations made in a 498A case by his embittered ex-wife. She filed the case years after he and his family had last seen her. Thousands of 498A cases are filed each year in India by women seeking to wreak vengeance on their husbands and in-laws. Enormous sums are extorted from intimidated families implicated in these cases by corrupt Indian police officers and elements of the Indian judiciary.
