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:
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’.
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.
“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.
