THREE SELECTED CASES FROM
    THE POOL OF FORTY
      DARK SIDE OF THE SOCIETY…..
     Name of The Complainant                           Complaint Title
     Ishwardevi                                        Forgery and Threat


Dispute
     The complainant, a spinster whose brother M.K. Sachdeva looks after all her
     correspondence on her behalf owns a house which was purchased by her brother
     in 1986. In 1997 her brother sold this house to her. Sh. Shankar Das Falwaria, the
     neighbour, who is a habitual offender, sent a legal notice on 17th May 2004
     stating that her house was sold by her brother to Sh. Falwaria on 16th October
     2003. The document bears her brother’s forged signature. According to the
     complainant, no action has been taken by the police till date to help her as the
     police itself are colluded with the accused because in order to settle the score with
     the complainant, Sh. Falwaria in connivance with the officials of police and MCD
     fraudulently showed their house as an unauthorized construction built under 2003
     and pulled down the house thrice without any court orders. In all the three times
     the complainant approached the police for help through helpline 100. The SHO,
     Sh. Hoshiar Singh arrived and instead of helping the complainant threatened them
     that if they quarrelled, he would put them behind bars.
Present Status
   The complainant had lodged the FIR with the help of the Magistrate and a court case
   is pending but due to financial constraints they are not able to give high fees to their
   advocate. Moreover, according to the complainant, they could not get help from
   Legal Aid Authority as the accused had links with the Legal Aid as well.

Action Taken By Safer India
   Personal inquiry was done by Mr. S.S Sandhu (Retd. Assistant Commissioner of
   Delhi Police), Police Advisor from Safer India by visit to the complainant’s home
   and appropriate action was taken by him.

Personal Observation Based On Home Visit
   The complainant is very aggrieved and poor who is living along with her aged
   mother and a mentally challenged sister. Though her house is very old which can be
   made out by seeing the house but it is an irony that in papers it has been shown as a
   new construction by the accused in this case. The accused has been using all his
   links and money to acquire the complainant’s house. This case is a glaring example
   of the dark side of the society where a rich person having influential links makes the
   life of poor people a hell. It was shocking to see three ladies staying in a broken
   house without door and always attracting threat to their lives.
       WHEN ANGEL TURNS DEVIL…
        Name of The Complainant            Complaint Title
                M.S. Parmar                       Cruel Behaviour of Police

Dispute
     The complainant’s son who is deaf and dumb has a shop near police post. As told
     by the complainant many policemen used to take his services without paying
     money and when he used to demand for money, they used to beat and threaten
     him. One day a policeman took him to the police station, gave him third degree
     torture and lodged five false FIRs against him. The case went in favour of the
     complainant’s son when it went to the Sessions Judge and FIR was lodged against
     the accused policemen but then that order was cancelled and the complainant’s
     case is now pending in the High Court. One day when the complainant was
     coming after withdrawing Rs. 30,000 from bank, someone took away his bag
     containing money and he reported the matter to the police but no action was taken
     by the police and rather the police abused the complainant.
Present Status of The Case
   No action has been taken by the police in this case.


Action Taken By Safer India
   Safer India followed up the case and put the same before senior officers to
   redress the grievances of the complainant. Outcome of the same is still awaited.


Personal Observation Based On The Home Visit
   The complainant is an old person and has been harassed a lot by the police. As
   the complainant already had conflict with the police, the police is not helping him
   regarding the snatching of his bag containing money. This case depicts how angel
   i.e. the police who has been deputed to ensure the safety and security of the
   citizens has turned devil by establishing itself as a threat to a poor old person and
   his deaf and dumb son. It also shows that a person faces a lot of problem if his
   case is directly against the police itself as the investigation suffers in such cases.
          THE WAY LIFE CHANGES….
     Name of The Complainant           Complaint Title
     Pratima Kumari                  Extortion of money

Dispute
           The complainant’s sister-in-law and the husband of her sister-in-law started
          creating problem for the money which the mother-in-law and father-in-law of
          the complainant received after retirement. When they failed to get the money,
          then out of frustration they hatched a plan and got a case registered against the
          complainant’s husband for extortion. In the complaint by accused i.e.
          complainant’s sister-in-law, it was given that there was a dispute between her
          husband and herself due to which she was residing apart from her husband.
          She said that her mother and father had forged her signatures and withdrawn
          about 7 lakhs rupees and given to the complainant’s husband due to which she
          lodged the FIR. She said that the police is supporting the accused as the
          accused has bribed the police. The complainant has also sent the complaint to
          DCP but no action has been taken. Police said that they knew that the case
          filed against the complainant is false but they cannot do anything as they are
          being pressurized from higher levels so they advised the complainant to get
          FIR done under Section 156 CrPC through Magistrate.
Present Status
  The case is pending in the court.


Action Taken By Safer India
  When the complainant approached Safer India, Dr. Kiran Bedi personally called the
   complainant and connected her with the lawyer, Mr. R. K. Yadav who gave her the
   legal advice.


Personal Observation Based On Home Visit
   From this case we could conclude how some incidents totally change the lives of
   some people as after it, the complainant herself has started studying law from an
   institute though she has already done M.Tech. Moreover, now even her husband is
   planning to do law and is keeping a watch on every recent case and collecting High
   Court judgements on various cases so that they are not befooled in future.

        STRENGTHS OF SAFER INDIA

   Dedicated And Efficient Support System From Different Fields Like Law, Police,
    Office Management, Social Work and Information Technology

   Acknowledgement and Forwarding of Complaints Within 24 Hours

   Immediate Follow Up In Case of Emergency If Any

   Direct Connection With the Police Headquarters And Other Concerned Authorities
    Through Internet Nationally

   Availability of Advanced Technology and Other Resources To Connect The Mails
    of The Complainants To The Concerned Authorities

   Association of Dr. (Mrs.) Kiran Bedi Which Is the Biggest Asset To This Mission
    LIMITATIONS OF SAFER INDIA
   This Is An E-Complaint System and Only Those Who Have Access
    To Internet And Knowledge Can Approach This Redressal System
    And Could Be Used More If More Awareness Is Generated Which
    Requires Public Relations Which Are Dependent Upon Financial
    Resources

   Cannot Compel The Police To Perform Their Duty

   Small Number of Volunteers

   Lack of Promotion of The Working of Safer India Due to Which It
    Cannot Reach Remoter Areas

   More Emphasis On English Language On The Website Which Is A
    Problem For An Illiterate Person
                  SUGGESTIONS
   Accessibility of Hindi Version of The Website

   To Appoint A Representative In Every Area To Establish A
    Personal Contact With The Complainants

   Promotion Through Print and Electronic Media

   Talent of More Student Interns Can Be Harnessed

   An Attempt To Be In Touch With The Complainants For
    The Easy Follow Up of The Case
                  CONCLUSION
The work done under Mission Safer India shows that change can be
brought in, what is required is an initiative. Youth must come
forward to volunteer their services to such organisation which work
for breaking the monopoly of police. What we analysed after
dealing with a considerable number of cases is that police is
harassing the ordinary citizens and refusing to register the cases
merely in order to reduce the figures of crime rate. Police instead of
acting as a helping hand to solve the problems of the poor and
innocent citizens is supporting criminals who grease their palms.
Policemen show reluctance in performing their duties must be
answerable to public. The work Mission Safer India has
undertaken, will make the police accountable to a large extent, thus,
making India a safer place to live in.
