In the present case, on receipt of the post-mortem report by Mumbai Police on 25.06.2020, the proceedings u/s 174 / 175Cr.P.C. came to a close” states Bihar.Following this, if the Mumbai Police were to undertake any investigation, it was required to register an FIR first and then proceed with investigation, the Submissions by Bihar Government stipulate. Averring that the the Mumbai Police has only been carrying out a “so-called” investigation which is not legal or valid as envisaged under CrPC, Bihar Government has stated that sans an FIR, there is no provision under which the Mumbai Police is examining the 56 persons & that, “any such exercise claimed by Mumbai Police without registration of FIR is ex-facie – entirely without jurisdiction”.On the aspect of jurisdiction of the Bihar Police, more specifically Rajeev Nagar P.S., Patna, where the Late Actor’s kin filed an FIR against Chakraborty, the Bihar Government states that precedents put forth that “the Station House Officer is obliged to register the FIR and carry out the investigation expeditiously” & that there exists no “embargo” on a police officer basis territorial jurisdiction to carry out investigation.Thus, the Bihar Government states that carrying out investigation is well within its jurisdiction and inaction by the Mumbai Police of non-registration of FIR is inexplicable and “contrary to law” and is on account of “political pressure””At the stage of investigation, it cannot be said that the SHO does not have territorial jurisdiction to investigate the case. Any contention that the IO did not have jurisdiction to do so on the face of it deserves to be rejected. Section 156(2) contains an embargo that no proceeding of a police officer shall be challenged on the ground that he has no territorial power to investigate…. The action of the Bihar Police in registering the FIR on 25.07.2020 and undertaking the investigation is not only within its jurisdiction but the discharge of such an obligation by it, is also entirely valid and legal. Simultaneously, on the other hand, non-registration of an FIR by Mumbai Police is not only entirely inexplicable but is also contrary to law” – Bihar Govt.The written submissions also highlight that the 4 member SIT which had reached Mumbai on July 27 with advance intimation were not extended cooperation by the Maharashtra Government and were not given any documents including copies of inquest. Further to this, Vinay Tiwari, IPS who had “who had reached Mumbai on 02.08.2020, with advance intimation to Mumbai Police – was virtually kept detained in the name of “quarantine” [ when admittedly, the 4-member SIT of Bihar Police officers had not been quarantined when they had reached Mumbai on 27.07.2020 ] and was not allowed to discharge his duties for the conduct of investigation. The Inspector General of Police (IGP), Bihar had requested Mumbai authorities for removal of quarantine of Mr. Vinay Tiwari, IPS, however, the same had been unfortunately disregarded by them”.The prayer by Chakraborty to transfer the case has been rebutted by Bihar Govt. to state that section 406 of the CrPC provides for transfer of the case and not for transfer of the investigation.”In the light of the facts of the present case, the transfer petition filed by the Petitioner is not maintainable. In Ram Chander Singh Sagar (Dr). Vs. The State of Tamil Nadu &Anr – (1978) 2 SCC 35, this Hon’ble Court has held that there is no power in this Hon’ble Court to transfer case during investigation stage”The Supreme Court on Tuesday reserved its orders in the plea filed by Bollywood actress Rhea Chakraborty.The Court had also asked all parties to submit a written note by Thursday, August 13.A Single Judge Bench of Justice Hrishikesh Roy heard all parties involved, who had complied with the Court’s August 5 Order, directing them to file their responses within 3 days to Chakraborty’s plea to transfer the case. The State of Maharashtra had also filed its report regarding the status of the investigation in a sealed cover.Click Here To Read Bihar Governments’ WSSubscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

  • Club makes teddy bear donation

    first_img Club makes teddy bear donation By The Penny Hoarder Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Messenger photo/Jaine TreadwellThe local chapter of Alpha Delta Kappa teachers’ sorority donated several bags of stuffed animals to the Troy Fire Department to be given to children involved in emergency situations including house fires and vehicle accidents. Brandy Cox, TFD fire marshal, said, even when children are not victims of the accidents, they become upset and fearful because of the surrounding situations. Handing a crying child a Teddy bear can have a calming effect, he said. Kaye Jinright, ADK member, said Teddy bears provide comfort and give a child something tangible to hold on toe during times of crisis. Cox said Teddy bears also help forge a bond between an officer and a child. “A Teddy bear also gets a child’s attention away from the stress of the incident,” he said. The Troy firefighters expressed appreciation to the Alpha Delta Kappa members for their generosity and their caring for the community.

  • Suspect, 72, arrested in decades-old ‘Golden State Killer’ case: District attorney

    first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(LOS ANGELES) — A 72-year-old man has been arrested in the decades-old “Golden State Killer” case in California, according to officials in Sacramento.The “Golden State Killer” is believed to have killed at least 12 people, raped at least 45 people and committed multiple home burglaries in the 1970s and 1980s in crime sprees throughout California.Joseph James DeAngelo was arrested on Tuesday afternoon in Citrus Heights in Sacramento County, said Sacramento County Sheriff Scott Jones.“We found the needle in the haystack,” Sacramento District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert said at a news conference Wednesday.An arrest warrant was issued Tuesday and a complaint was filed charging him with two counts of murder with special circumstances for the murder of a Sacramento couple in 1978, said Schubert.It was discarded DNA that confirmed, “We had our man,” Jones said.“For over 40 years, countless victims have waited for justice,” Schubert said. “Over these years, hundreds of individuals have sought justice for these victims and their families.”The terror started with burglaries and rapes in the Sacramento suburbs in summer 1976.He would break into his victims’ homes by prying open a window or door while they slept, the FBI said.He would then shine a flashlight into their faces, tie them up, ransack the house, and rape female victims, the FBI said.Sometimes he would take jewelry, identification, cash, and coins from the victims’ homes.Some victims said the suspect called them after the crimes, the FBI said.In 1978, the Golden State Killer was believed to have shot and killed a couple walking their dog in the Sacramento area.That crime was followed by rapes in the Northern California area, including Stockton, Modesto, Davis, and the East Bay.Between 1979 and 1981, the Golden State Killer was suspected of rapes and murders in Southern California. The FBI said the victims were tied up in the same way and had their homes ransacked in the same way as the Sacramento area victims.The final crime tied to the Golden State Killer was the May 1986 rape and murder of an 18-year-old woman in the Southern California city of Irvine, the FBI said.This story is developing.

  • Nominations NowBeing Accepted For State’s Highest Agricultural Award

    first_imgLt. Governor Suzanne Crouch is now accepting nominations for the 2019 AgriVision Award, which is the highest agricultural honor presented by the state.Now in its 13th year, the award was established to recognize individuals who have made significant contributions to the agriculture industry, whether it’s developing new technology, managing an agribusiness or organization, or working to address a global issue, to name a few.“Indiana is on the front lines of agricultural innovation, and Hoosiers are pioneering advances every day,” Crouch said. “This award allows us to recognize several of those individuals who have given so much to agriculture and Indiana over the years.”The AgriVision Award is open to any Indiana resident and all sectors of the agriculture industry—from bioenergy to livestock to the biosciences. Any person or organization may submit a nomination.Once a winner has been selected, the award will be presented by Lt. Governor Crouch and Indiana State Department of Agriculture Director Bruce Kettler during the Celebration of Agriculture at the Indiana State Fair.“We have some extraordinary individuals that makeup Indiana’s agricultural community, and far too often, their work and accomplishments go unrecognized,” Kettler said. “It’s important that we acknowledge those who have been champions for agriculture and helped shape where the industry is today.”Nomination forms can be found by visiting www.in.gov/isda/3367.htm. Entries must be submitted by 5:00 p.m., ET, on June 30, 2019.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more

  • VFW Donates Milestone 2,000th Meal to Aid COVID-19 Relief

    first_imgBy TIM KELLYEvery day we are bombarded with grim statistics related to the COVID-19 pandemic.How about a good statistic for a change?Ocean City’s VFW Ferguson-Foglio Post 6650 recently marked an impressive milestone – its 2,000th meal donated to Ocean City residents severely impacted by the crisis.The Post has also provided hundreds of meals for first responders and frontline medical personnel.“I’m not the least bit surprised,” said Drew Fasy, the chair and organizer of OCNJ CARE, the nonprofit organization charged by Mayor Jay Gillian to organize and distribute aid to those in need.“If I’m surprised at all, I might question the number as being too low. I would have guessed an even higher number,” Fasy added.Mike Morrissey, Post commander, laughed when Fasy’s comment was passed along.“He’s probably right about that. We can say definitely there have been 2,000, and yes, that’s probably being (conservative),” Morrissey said.Fasy noted that when OCNJ CARE launched its efforts in early March, one of the first calls he received was from Morrissey.“Mike called and said, ‘What do you need?’ and the Post has been on board and one of our strongest partners ever since,” Fasy said.According to Fasy, it was mentioned the first challenge would be to feed those sheltering in place who did not have the ability to get out to the supermarket, or the means to do so.“Mike and the members of the VFW Post organized and ran the whole meals program,” Fasy said. “Almost immediately they were providing dozens of meals three nights a week for three months straight.”The Post brokered a deal with local restaurants in which full dinners would be provided for a per-meal price. Anything under that number was profit for the restaurants, but with a caveat.“Mike is a stickler for quality,” Fasy said. “They had to be good, quality meals. It was a win-win-win arrangement.”Drew Fasy serves as chairman of the nonprofit relief organization OCNJ CARE.The folks in need won by receiving free, high-quality meals from some of the top restaurants in the city and region.The restaurants, some struggling to survive during the lockdown, had the opportunity to sell meals they otherwise wouldn’t, meals that could be prepared in advance of their dinner rush.OCNJ CARE won by delivering on its mission to help the needy.“Mike and the members of that Post 6650 were absolute beasts,” Fasy said.He said that police, fire, EMS and other first responders were also given quality meals on a regular basis. Additionally, OCNJ CARE’s meal program was no stranger to Shore Medical Center’s respiratory therapy department and emergency room personnel.In the middle of all of this, Morrissey underwent open heart valve replacement surgery. He’s on the mend now, he says, although perhaps moving a bit slower.“Remember, we have outstanding people in this Post who step forward when they are asked to help,” Morrissey said. “This isn’t about me.”So how does it feel to reach the 2,000-meal milestone and to help so many people?“We are part of this community, and if we can help, that’s our obligation to do so.” Morrissey said.He explained that the most gratifying aspect was “the fact my grandchildren know we did this.”Apparently, the lesson was well-learned. His grandson, 17-year-old Michael Morrissey III, set up a crowdfunding site to help aid people affected by COVID-19 in his hometown of Richmond, Virginia.“He’s raised approximately $8,000 already,” Mike Sr. said. “That’s something to be proud of.”Ocean City’s VFW Ferguson-Foglio Post 6650.
