Purging The Police Ranks In UP

Here is the link to the article. What is remarkable is the fact that most of the jobs in the police force were obtained by bribing the recruiting officials. This shows the endemic rot within the system.

These are the morons that are supposed to handle domestic disputes like 498A.

Here is an excerpt: “It is no secret that, throughout India, some candidates hoping to join the police pay to secure a post. The starting salary for a police officer in Uttar Pradesh is 3,500 rupees a month – a low wage by Indian standards. But if an officer can supplement his income by taking bribes, the relatively high entry fee could be seen as a sound investment.”

    Why single out cops specifically? What about the Municipality, Customs, Excise, Tax officials; in fact just about every blessed department of the government! The “Rags to Riches” parable is nowhere else more true than in our own beloved Bharat: just become a politician and don that starched Khadi jacket of impunity! Let’s be fair folks: If there was integrity and fair play in the ranks, who else could we engage to circumvent the law or accomplish our private vendettas under color of the law? Doctored incident reports are commonplace; in fact, according to a responsible police Supervisor, they are a “necessary formality” to put some meat on an otherwise lackluster Accusation. (Check out the “exposé” courtesy of http://www.timesofindia.indiatimes.com/articleshow/msid-1462074,prtpage-1.cms …. and what happened to the DCP? Nothing!). So why aren’t these happenings reported more often? Do we have a corrupt Press as well? Let’s be realistic: The various media maintain, groom and nourish their very own pet contact(s) at the local Police Station so they’re intimated at the slightest hint of anything scandalous or newsworthy transpiring. No half-brain cop would expose filth in his own back yard. This particular incident was reported because one from their own clique (a fellow journalist) got the crap kicked out of him. Ahem! Now, you decide! So bitch all you want because no one is going to be seriously taken to task and the issue simply fizzles out into oblivion. Favor for a favor, Buddy! Money or “in kind”. Integrity? Ethics? What the hell’s that got to do with the way we do business? You want to label “Inaam”, “Commission”, “Thora Kuch – a little something”, “Mamool”, “Baksheesh”, “Chai-Paani-ka-kharcha”, nepotism, networking, etc., as Corruption? You think you can root it out? Hah! What a bunch of hypocrites! Do you also believe in the Tooth Fairy? Truth is, “Corruption” is as Desi as Garam Masala and coconut hair oil: it’s an integral part of our cultural fabric. It would be unpatriotic to attempt eradicating it. Jai Hind! It is prudent to publicly condemn the practice, but, in private, we’ve all come to accept it as an invaluable tool to get things done to our satisfaction: the ultimate motivator … the universal ice-breaker and palm greaser … the lingo everyone is conversant with … the master key that opens all locks! Let’s face it Folks, we have the very best government money can buy. Where else but in our own Mother India can you have anything done – I mean ANYTHING – and, that too, for a reasonable price? It is commonly believed that one can even walk into court with the decapitated head of someone they just killed and get bail! Provided you have “a little extra” to back your play. Get real, People! Flush your noble fantasy down the toilet. Get a life! Rishwat-Khori is here to stay, but no one has the foolish courage to publicly admit it [– except fools (Oops!), and those few who truly can’t afford to feather someone else’s nest with their modest, honest earnings; in other words, THE LOSERS!].

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. The author and his family haven't bribed any public official nor have they given in to the extortion. This blog aims to raise awareness of due process in India.
