Yashwant Etc. Vs. State of Maharashtra[ ALL SC 2018 SEPTEMBER]

September 04′ 2018: Custodial torture cases-As the police, in this case, are the violators of law’ who had the primary responsibility to protect and uphold law’ thereby mandating the punishment for such violation to be proportionately stringent so as to have effective deterrent effect and instill confidence in the society. It may not be out of context to remind that the motto of Maharashtra State Police is “Sadrakshnāya Khalanīghrahanāya” (Sanskrit: “To protect good and to Punish evil”)’ which needs to be respected. Those’ who are called upon to administer the criminal law’ must bear’ in mind’ that they have a duty not merely to the individual accused before them’ but also to the State and to the community at large. Such incidents involving police usually tend to deplete the confidence in our criminal justice system much more than those incidents involving private individuals-APPELLANT CONVICTED… Read More Yashwant Etc.

Board Of Control For Cricket In vs Kochi Cricket Pvt Ltd And Etc [ALL SC

all cases where the Section 34 petition is filed after the commencement of the Amendment Act, and an application for stay having been made under Section 36 therein, will be governed by Section 34 as amended and Section 36 as substituted. But, what is to happen to Section 34 petitions that have been filed before the commencement of the Amendment Act, which were governed by Section 36 of the old Act? Would Section 36, as substituted, apply to such petitions? To answer this question, we have necessarily to decide on what is meant by “enforcement” in Section 36. On the one hand, it has been argued that “enforcement” is nothing but “execution”, and on the other hand, it has been argued that “enforcement” and “execution” are different concepts, “enforcement” being substantive and “execution” being procedural in nature.… Read More Board Of Control For Cricket In vs Kochi Cricket Pvt Ltd And Etc [ALL SC
