Read the News article here… a man spend 54 yeas in Jail without a single court hearing 😯
Though not a new thing… the truth is Indian Prisons are jam-packed, with prisoners who are caught even for small offences and shifted to jail but never get court dates… or there case comes for hearing after they have already spend more time than they can be punished for.
Some social organisations and young lawyers from law Colleges visit prisons and try to talk to such kind of prisoners and help them… but the legal system doesn’t care !
SOMNATH BHATTACHARJEE says
It’s indeed very sad to read the story of Lalung. Incidentally, I am also a victim of India’s legal bureaucracy. In my case, the Debt Recovery Tribunal â€“ II of Calcutta and some officers of UCO Bank, forcefully and brutally evicted me from my home. Though the property has never been mortgaged but still the Recovery Officer Mr. N. Mukherjee help them to disposes me from that property and sold it to one promoter M/s Fortgroup (owned by Mr. Vivek Kathotia, Mr. Hari Sharma & othrs.) despite my legal right. Itâ€™s an example which depict how these bureaucrats become the puppet of businessmen. I donâ€™t know how and where the victim like me get the proper justice and also in a civilized society, how a reputed bank like UCO Bank did such a brutal act.
Really sad to know Mr SOMNATH BHATTACHARJEE about such a brutal act by UCO bank !
So what steps you are taking against them… ???
