Payal Tadvi suicide: Bombay HC to film bail plea hearing of 3 accused

first_imgThe Bombay High Court on Thursday directed its registry department to make arrangements to film the hearing of the bail pleas of three resident doctors, arrested for allegedly abetting the suicide of their junior at a civic-run hospital in the city, on July 30.Justice D.S. Naidu was hearing bail pleas filed by Dr. Hema Ahuja, Dr. Bhakti Mehare and Dr. Ankita Khandelwal, who were arrested on May 29 for making casteist slurs against their junior Dr. Payal Tadvi, leading to her suicide.Tadvi (26), a second-year postgraduate medical student attached to BYL Nair Hospital, committed suicide in her hostel room on May 22.Justice Naidu on Thursday noted that Section 15 (a) (10) of the Scheduled Castes and the Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) mandates that all proceedings under the act have to be video recorded by the court concerned. The provision was pointed out to the court by advocate Gunaratan Sadavarte, who appeared for the victim’s mother.While special public prosecutor Raja Thakare said it was a policy matter, advocate Aabad Ponda, appearing for the accused, said the provision is only for trial proceedings and not bail hearings. Justice Naidu, however, said that it would be implied for all judicial proceedings.“I cannot ignore the statutory provisions. While I am sympathetic towards the fact that this would mean a delay in hearing of the bail pleas, but it is also imperative that the provisions of the act are followed,” the judge said.The court then directed the high court’s registry department to make necessary arrangements for video-recording and posted the bail pleas for further hearing on July 30.Justice Naidu said as a judge, he was known for recording court proceedings that he uses his mobile phone to record audios of arguments of lawyers in important cases. Mr. Ponda, while seeking bail, argued that the accused are educated persons and not criminals.“We are not criminals. We know that something unfortunate has happened and a woman has lost her life. But life has to go on. We will face the trial,” Ponda said.The accused have been suspended from the Nair hospital, he said, adding they just want to complete their education and propose to stay out of Mumbai.Mr. Ponda further pointed out that the chargesheet filed by the prosecution places reliance on the purported suicide note, the photos of which were recovered from Tadvi’s mobile.“The suicide note speaks about harassment meted out with regard to work. There is no whisper about caste or that the accused persons made remarks about the victim’s caste,” Mr. Ponda argued.The three doctors have been booked under IPC sections for abetment of suicide and destruction of evidence, and provisions of the Maharashtra Prohibition of Ragging Act and the Scheduled Castes and the Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities).They are presently in judicial custody.Tadvi’s family alleged that three of her seniors – Ahuja, Meher and Khandelwal – ragged her and hurled casteist abuses at her, forcing Tadvi to take her life. Mumbai police’s Crime Branch on Tuesday filed a chargesheet against the three accused. The over 1,800-page charge sheet, filed before a special court here, contains a copy of the three-page suicide note allegedly written by Tadvi before hanging herself in her hostel room.last_img read more

IPL 2011: Kolkata aim for home triumph against Rajasthan

first_imgThe away battle won, Kolkata Knight Riders will aim to win the home contest as well when they take on Rajasthan Royals in the return leg of the Indian Premier League at the Eden Gardens on Sunday.The Knight Riders on Friday stopped the Rajasthan Royals’ two- match winning run with a clinical nine- wicket victory in Jaipur.The two sides now meet again with the hosts overwhelming favourites this time.The new- look Knight Riders under Gautam Gambhir started Season IV shakily against Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s Chennai Super Kings losing the battle from a winning position.But the Knight Riders, who shunned local hero Sourav Ganguly, earned back the confidence of the city with an easy win over Deccan Chargers in their first home match.From there on, Knight Riders looked unruffled against the more fancied Royals in their away match that saw some failed strategies by the wily Shane Warne.The Aussie legend raised many eyebrows by keeping an in- form Shane Watson at number four in the batting order. With Watson not opening, Rajasthan Royals failed to get the blistering start that is so needed in Twenty20s.Fresh from his 185 not out with a record 15 sixes against Bangladesh, Watson scored 22 from 13 balls.Bangladesh skipper Shakib al Hasan, who saw Watson wreck his side a few days ago, did the Aussie all- rounder in after being hit for two sixes as Royals gave the Knight Riders a target of 160.Chasing the tricky target, the Knight Riders did not look in any trouble at all. Jacques Kallis was at his consistent best for his third consecutive half- century – – this time an unbeaten 80.advertisementGambhir played a skipper’s knock of 75 not out as he took the attack to Warne, who returned wicket- less conceding 28 in his four overs.Form on their side, Knight Riders boast of a balanced line- up and have three consecutive home matches lined up next.With runs under his belt, Gambhir can surely look forward to opening the batting with Kallis. In Manoj Tiwary, Yusuf Pathan, Eoin Morgan and Shakib, the Knight Riders batting runs deep and looks devastating.Their bowling too has got a boost with the addition of Aussie pace spearhead Brett Lee and Shakib.But even after the loss at home, it would be a folly to rule out Warne at the Eden.-With PTI inputslast_img read more
