A Division Bench of Supreme Court of India comprising of JJ Mr. A.K. Sikri and Mr. R.K. Agrawal heard the writ petition filed by Panthers Party senior leaders namely Ms. Anita Thakur, Mr. H.C. Jalmeria, Advocate and Mr. P.K. Ganjoo, Sr. Journalist seeking criminal action against the erring police officials who were guilty of committing barbaric and inhuman acts against the petitioners while the petitioners were escorting a peaceful protest march of the Talwara (Reasi) Jammu Migrants from Reasi to Delhi seeking implementation of the Supreme Court order dated 13.07.2006 to provide relief to the Jammu Migrants at par with Kashmiri Migrants as per judgment of the High Court of J&K dated 2001 and the judgment/order of the Supreme Court of India to provide the Jammu Migrants equitable and same relief as was provided to the Kashmiri Migrants.

The Supreme Court had admitted this writ petition in 2007 and it finally was heard today the Supreme Court. Mr. K. Venugopal, Sr. Advocate and Prof.Bhim Singh, Sr. Advocate argued for the petitioners, Jammu Migrants urging the court for appropriate punishment to the police officials responsible for the assault on the Panthers Party activists including a lady, an advocate and a senior journalist. The Panthers Party has also demanded a compensation of Rs.10 lacs each to the arrested Panthers Party leaders and any other appropriate punishment to the police officials and other government agencies for causing injury for murderous attack on the petitioners.

Prof.Bhim Singh in his arguments submitted before the court that nearly 2000 migrants including women, old and children started their march for justice from Reasi to Delhi as per judgment/order of the Supreme Court of India dated 13.07.2006. The Supreme Court had directed the Union of India and Govt. of J&K to provide relief to the Jammu Migrants as per its direction given on 13.07.2006. He submitted before the court that Jammu Migrants hailing from the districts of Rajouri, Poonch, Reasi, Udhampur, Doda, Ramban, Kishtwar, Kathua and other places were completely ignored and they were not allowed even ration for their survival whereas the Kashmiri Migrants (hailing from province of Kashmir) were provided ration in cash and kind on regular basis by the Relief Commissioner working from Jammu. The Jammu Migrants were only tortured, ignored, sent to jails and their children were bought over by the outsiders. They were forced to sell a child for the survival of the rest of the family members. Prof.Bhim Singh told the court that migrants numbering 2000 including women, old and children were peacefully marching from Talwara on their way to Delhi to present memorandum to the Prime Minister. He told the court that these migrants were stopped by the Armed Police near Katra bridge, beaten, assaulted and not allowed to cross the bridge. He submitted before the court how Mr. H.C. Jalmeria, Advocate was taken into police custody when he approached the police to requesting them to stop beating the children and women on the road. Ms. Anita Thakur followed Mr. Jalmeria. Prof.Bhim Singh presented a film on this tragic incident. The Hon’ble judges screened the film. This film shows how Mr. Jalmeria was dragged into the police brigade, assaulted and attacked by the policemen with their lathies and shoes. His leg was broken. The film shows that Ms. Anita Thakur who went the police camp by herself to inquire about Mr. Jalmeria was pounced by the wolves (police in uniform), beaten, assaulted, attacked and then dragged like gunny bag on the stony road and packed into a police jeep. The film also shows how policemen in uniform were pelting stones against the innocent villagers on the road. The Hon’ble Judges after screening the film directed that, this court shall appoint a commission of inquiry which shall visit the areas and report back to this court within one month.

Mr. K. Venugopal, Sr. Advocate for the Panthers Party petitioners made a strong submission that the Hon’ble Court should take appropriate action against the erring policemen and pay appropriate compensation to the petitioners for their illegal, unconstitutional and undesirable arrest and for the loss they have suffered at the hands of the policemen.

The Supreme Court directed that the case shall be taken up after the vacation.

The other advocates who assisted Prof.Bhim Singh included B.S. Billowria, S.K. Bandopadhyay and others.  Mr. Sunil Fernandes and others appeared for the State of J&K.

Prof.Bhim Singh expressed happiness that this case which was filed by the Panthers Party in 2007 came to the final hearing after nine years by the Hon’ble Supreme Court.

SC adjourns Pak-prisoners petition against illegal detention Bhim Singh urges deporation of all illegal prisoners

A Division Bench of Supreme Court of India comprising JJ J. Chelameshwar and Mr. Abhay Manohar Sapre today directed that the petition filed by Prof.Bhim Singh, Sr. Advocate against the illegal detention of about 800 Pak-prisoners shall be listed a week after for final hearing. The Supreme Court made this observation when Prof.Bhim Singh arguing the petition submitted that he filed a petition in 2005 against the illegal, unconstitutional and malafide detentions of nearly 800 Pakistanis while who had infiltrated to India by crossing borders from Pakistan side.

          Nearly 500 Pakistani prisoners have been deported back to Pakistan by the order of the Supreme Court of India on the writ petition filed by the Panthers Party connected social organizations and legal aid committee. The Supreme Court directed that the petition (Writ Petition No.310/2005 along with other writ petitions) filed against the illegal detention of Pakistani boys may be taken after a week.

          The Supreme Court had also directed Union of India and the State Govt. to move out all the foreign prisoners (most of them are Pakistanis) to the centres and shall be taken out of the prisons. The Union of India and State Govt. have been claiming that the foreign prisoners were not lodged in the prisons/jails. The Union of India in its affidavit filed this morning before the Supreme Court admitted that 59 Pakistani prisoners who have completed their sentences or against whom no offence was registered are still continuing in different lock-ups/jails in the country. Though, Sewa Sadan at Lampur, New Delhi has been set up but there are only two Pakistani prisoners namely Mohd. Kamar, s/o Mohd. Ameem and Abdul Jabar@Sikander, s/o Musa Ibrahim. Though, they have not been identified till date. The affidavit filed by the Union of India also admitted that there are two detenus in Alwar (Rajasthan) jail. They are Mr. Hamid, s/o Mohd. Hussain and Javed Isaim, s/o Mohd. Bux (no nationality mentioned). The affidavit filed this morning before the Supreme Court, the Union of India has admitted that there are about 20 foreign prisoners who have been detained in Amritsar prison in Punjab for several years with no offences registered against them. Interestingly, their addresses or country or origin has not been mentioned. Out of 20 unknown/with unknown citizenship there are three goongas (Deaf and dump) because they are goongas. This matter was referred by the Supreme Court of India to the Union of India to trace out the original connection of these prisoners. According to the information these prisoners have been lodged in detention centres along with other 16/17 Pak-prisoners in Amritsar jail called as Detention Centre Amritsar.    

          Prof.Bhim Singh has been arguing this case for years he also handed over several copies of judgments of the Supreme Court of India to the Pakistani lawyers and functionaries of Pakistan Supreme Court Bar Association. The Lawyers Congress of Pakistan in Lahore headed by Zulfiqar Ali Jehangir, Advocate in the Lahore High Court has been working hard to ensure that Govt. of Pakistan may trace out the relatives of these goongas.

          According to the affidavit of the Union Home Ministry there are 22 prisoners from Pakistan who have been in jail for several years and detained in the so-called Detention Centre, JIC, Bhuj in Gujarat.

          The Supreme Court of India in its strict order had directed all the states and Union of India to shift all such foreign prisoners who are not convicts and have no case pending against them to some independent areas. It is unfortunate that there is only one such centre in New Delhi called Sewa Sadan Lampur which has only two foreign prisoners. The Union of India has admitted this day in the affidavit that there are 59 foreign prisoners who are not wanted in any case and are not involved in any offence. Only two of them are kept in Sewa Sadan, Delhi. 57 foreign prisoners are still detained in jails/prisons which is evident from the record which has been supplied by the Union of India to the Supreme Court. There is no Detention Centre even in J&K, Goa and several other states. This is admitted by the Union of India that five foreign prisoners (Pakistanis) have been detained in different jails, Rajouri, Lalaya Khan, s/o Shareen Khan, Central Jail, Kotbhalwal (Mrs. Rubina, w/o Mohd. Noor), in District Jail Jammu two foreign are detained namely Mr. Akhtar Hussain, s/o Noor Rehman and Mohd. Shafeeq, s/o Mohd. Shareef wheras Mohd. Iftikar, s/o Barhan Ali Khan has been detailed in Poonch District jail, J&K. They have been kept in illegal detention and in violation of the Supreme Court order/judgment.

          It is also interesting revelation by the Union Home Ministry that there are some non-Muslim names (persons) who have been detained for years in Gujarat jail (Bhuj). They are mentioned as Hiralal, s/o Ranamal (Srl. No.45), Laduben, w/o Hiralal, Najesha, s/o Hiralal, Khiyan, s/o Hiralal, Nanji, s/o Hiralal, Jagdish, Laxman, Narayan (all sons of Hiralal) and daughter of Hiralal Raqtuben (all these information through an affidavit by the Union of India was submitted before the Supreme Court this morning).

          On 11.02.2014, the Union of India had admitted in its affidavit that there were 265 Pakistani prisoners in jails and 131 fishermen.

          Prof.Bhim Singh submitted before the Supreme Court of India that the Govt. of India should release the names with photos to the Pakistani High Commission as almost all of the unidentified prisoners sulking in prisons belong to Pakistan. He has made a submission that all the prisoners not identified should be given the choice to go as a refugee in the United Nations refugee penal and choose a country of their choice. He said that they are all human being and cannot be treated like cattle.

          Prof.Bhim Singh has decided to send the list of the names with pictures if he is allowed to picture the unknown prisoners, to the Prime Minister of Pakistan to trace out their connection and send his representatives to escort the Pakistani prisoners from detention centres in India to Pakistan.               

          Prof.Bhim Singh was assisted by the advocates, Mr. S.K. Bandhopadhyay and Mr. B.S. Billowria.

Mr. Jagdev Singh was going to attend celebration in connection with wedding and carrying lot of gifts meant for this celebration. The traffic police dragged Mr. Jagdev Singh and minor children more than eight and dumped them into a police jeep. They have been detained in police lock up in warehouse Jammu. I have spoken to Mr. Jagdev Singh, sent a legal aid team headed by Mr. Chetan Sharma and Bansi Lal Sharma to take appropriate legal action.
