motu cognisance of their death, has decided to

?Chief Minister Edappadi K. Palaniswami has
announced a compensation of ?10 lakh each,
while two sub-inspectors have been suspended
and an inspector placed on compulsory wait.
?Custodial deaths are often the result of the
pervasive use of torture in Indi a’ s police stations
for extracting admissions of crime, but it is not
uncommon, regrettably, for the police to use their
power and authority to settle personal scores.
?Their offence would have only attracted Section
188 of IPC (for disobeying the time restrictions
ordered by a public servant), but they were also
booked under Section 383 (extortion by threat)
and Section 506 (ii) (criminal intimidation).

?It is well known that the police include
‘intimidation ’ in the FIR solely to obtain an order
of remand, as it is non-bailable, if they are bent
upon sending someone to jail.
?The inclusion of non-bailable sections for a
lockdown violation indicates a perverse and prior
inclination to harass the two and cause suffering.
?The top brass of the police too will have to bear
responsibility for this atrocity as it indicates a
signal failure to lay down norms for policemen on
the field to handle lockdown violations with
humaneness.

?We in India, expect perfect powers of prediction in
our leaders and decision-makers.
?When things work out differently, as they often do,
because the circumstances have changed, we proceed
to flay them for having let the country down.
?The disengagement of Indian and Pakistan forces
from Siachen had been on the agenda of India-
Pakistan talks for several years under several
governments.
?The sticking point had been P akistan ’ s refusal to agree upon
an Actual Ground Position Line from which forces of the two
sides would withdraw to new positions, negotiated between
the two sides.
