Stating that officials in India understood only the “crack of a whip”, the apex court on Friday ordered that a policeman turning away a person without registering his complaint could face contempt of court charges and cool his heels in jail if he failed to justify non-registration of the FIR.
Here are the orders issued in the Lalita Kumari case. The scum, refused to help this lady whose daughter was missing. If this had been a 498A, they would have fallen over themselves to capture grandmothers sitting at home. The SC has provided the proper medicine.
The SC link is here, but I expect it to die soon.
You can find the orders here:
1. SC to DGPs and Chiefs Secys: SC Order To DGPs And State Chied Secys
2. Jail time for cops for not registering complaints: SC Order In Lalita Kumari Case-2008
As written before, the police are required to register and investigate a cognizable complaint.
I hope to see a few goons and criminals dressed in a police uniform, jailed under this order.
