Judicial probes on Manipur encounters biased: Army to SC 19.4.2017 deccanherald.com
A day after it was rapped by the Supreme Court for remaining silent over rape and murder charges against its personnel in Manipur, the Army today said the judicial probes conducted into these charges were "biased" and slanted against them due to local factors. It alleged that the district judges, who were locals, had conducted the judicial inquiries into the alleged killings and local factors came in the way of the probe reports which went against the armed forces. "The problem in every case is that the slant of judicial inquiry was against us. Judicial inquiries which have been done by a district judge proceeded against us by the virtue of their local apprehensions or local positions. Armys job is not to kill its own people," Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi told a bench of Justices M B Lokur and U U Lalit. Citing an example, Rohatgi said if the Army goes after two terrorists holed up in a civilian area and in cross-fire some people are killed, then it cannot be held guilty for these casualties. "We are ...

Do you have rapists in uniform? Supreme Court asks Army 19.4.2017 DNA: Urban Tales
Only an independent investigation by a Special Investigation Team (SIT) will lend credibility to the proceedings in the "extra-judicial killings by the security forces" in Manipur, said a report filed by Amicus Curiae Menaka Guruswamy to the Supreme Court on Tuesday. Making a strong case for a trial by a special court constituted by the SC, it pointed out the "delayed justice" and "gross misuse" of the Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA) in the state. Guruswamy's report is highly significant because, if implemented, it will be the first time that senior police officers will investigate excesses of the armed forces in any part of the country. Guruswamy's report, compiled from the proceedings of 265 cases of extra-judicial killings in Manipur, looked at evidence from high court judgments, judicial inquiries, and NHRC reports, noting that monetary compensation in several cases signified the state's apathy and ensured that the killings continued unabated. Guruswamy added that Manipur submitted 18 reports ...

Why were you silent over allegations of rape: SC asks Army 18.4.2017 deccanherald.com
The Supreme Court today rapped the Army asking why it had maintained silence over allegations of rape and murder against its personnel in Manipur and questioned the state government for not proceeding with these cases against them. The apex court asked the Manipur government to explain whether it was a "sheer helplesness" on their part or a "tacit understanding" that they would not proceed against the Army personnel despite there being serious allegations of rape and murder against them. "You may have two alleged rapists. Why you have kept quiet," a bench of Justices Madan B Lokur and U U Lalit asked Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi, who was appearing for the Army and the Assam Rifles. Responding to the query, the Attorney General said, "these are allegations only. The question is whether rape was committed by the Army personnel". The court posed this query to Rohatgi after it was told that there were allegations against two Army personnel that they had raped a 15-year-old girl in 2003 following which she ...

Recall order on Manipur encounters: govt to SC 12.4.2017 deccanherald.com
The government has asked the Supreme Court to recall its 2016 judgement directing probe into 1,528 cases of "fake encounter" cases in Manipur in the last 20 years.

The government also claimed that the judgement will have far-reaching and catastrophic impact on the country's security and integrity. Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi mentioned the matter before a three-judge bench presided over by Chief Justice J S Khehar and sought urgent hearing on the curative petition. National security Maintaining that it was a question of national security, Rohatgi said the armed forces would have their morale dented if the local police were to ...
