Why Provision Of Bail Under UAPA Needs A Revist: The Story Of Stan Swamy

Sonal Beniwal

INTRODUCTION

Demise of Father Stan Swamy has hit the news channels and has been the headline of lot of newspapers. These headlines often hit us when we have ourselves suffered a loss, otherwise it’s just a page 7 news. This article is inspired by rejection of Stan Swamy’s bail application in May 2021. Swamy was arrested in 2020 from his house in Ranchi, Jharkhand over the pretext of his involvement in the Bhima-Koregaon Case in 2018. The question of him being involved during the Bhima-Koregaon violence is for the court to decide and the course of an investigation shall follow its determined route. However, after his demise on 5th July, 2021, a lot of questions pop up w.r.t to bail jurisprudence in India, and also makes one ponder whether timely access to medical care would have allowed Swamy to fight his case and prove his innocence?

For those who don’t know Stan Swamy, he was an educated, Roman Catholic Christian who hails from Tamil Nadu and a former director of the Indian Social Institute, Bangalore. Swamy was not a silent spectator in life, rather he was vocal about his disagreements with government policies especially on rights of Tribal Groups. His arrest after the Bhim-Koregaon Case made him just another victim of mass suppression of dissent by the government. An 84-year-old man suffering from Parkinson’s disease, who was not able to do his daily chores without help, was undergoing trial and in Taloja jail. During the hearing, the court rejected the bail application and advised him to go ahead for treatment in a government hospital. Swamy rejected this compromise to go to a government hospital citing that the condition of JJ Hospital was worse off than a prison. He was later shifted to Holy Family Hospital in Maharashtra after he tested positive for COVID-19 and tragically succumbed to death on 5th July, 2021.

The author has taken the story of Stan Swamy as an example at bay to explain the intricate subject of bail jurisprudence in Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, 1967 (hereinafter referred as UAPA.) and bring out its fallacy that leads to such unfortunate events.

QUESTIONING THE BAIL JURISPRUDENCE UNDER UAPA

The 268th Law Commission Report[1] that came out in May 2017, already warned us about the overarching detrimental effect that an extendable pre-trial detention can have against the principle of ‘presumption of innocence of the accused’, which is the very fabric of the criminal justice system. The rejection of bail application despite his deteriorating health, highlights this issue in the most concerning way. The ‘automatic denial of bail’, under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, 1967, not only restricts a person’s freedom, but also their right to lead a healthy life.

Stan Swamy was left to suffer in an overpopulated jail in Maharashtra during the second wave of COVID-19. While international and national laws state otherwise, the United Nations Standard Minimum Rules for the Treatment of Prisoners, famously known as Nelson Mandela Rules[2], and Article 21 of the Indian Constitution[3] and numerous other judgments point toward prisoner’s right to health while they are under-going trials. Whether it be the case of Shri Rama Murthy vs. State Of Karnataka,[4] or the Apex Court’s judgment in Charles Sobaraj v. Supdt Central Jail Tihar[5], or even the landmark 1981 decision in Francis Corahe Mullin v. The Administrator, UT Delhi[6] and an endless list of cases that highlight the importance of prisoner’s rights. With the deteriorating condition of Swamy, he was in need of a decent medical care which the Taloja Jail Administration could not provide.

According to Section 43D(5) of the UAPA, the court shall not grant bail unless there are reasonable grounds based on the charge sheet, case diary where the court believes that accusations are prima facie true. The problem with this is that the provision doesn’t give the scope of analysis to the judge after the evidence is submitted. In the case of, Zahoor Ahmad Shah Watali vs National Investigating Agency[7] , the court took an even narrower approach of this section, where the court didn’t even consider it necessary to examine if the evidence is admissible or not during the primary stage of trial. However, in the case of K.N Najeeb v. Union of India,[8] the Supreme Court held that Article 21 of the Indian Constitution shall prevail over any other law. The court further clarified that Part III of the Indian Constitution would cover protective ambit not only regarding the ‘due procedure’ but also access to justice and speedy trial. It was also held that legal provisions in UAPA that prohibit bail if there is a prima facie case against the accused, will not impede the courts from granting bail if fundamental rights are being violated. Varvara Rao, an 81 year old individual, also a co-accused in Bhim-Koregaon case, was also granted bail on medical and humanitarian grounds in February 2021.[9] Be that as it may, the question here needs to be asked, why are the courts forced into a corner to seek out the last resorts of Article 21, in order to provide an accused with the most basic of human and prisoner’s rights?

HOUSE ARREST AS A POSSIBLE ALTERNATIVE

The alternative of house arrest would allow the courts to offer vulnerable accused individuals, such as Swamy, with a remedy which doesn’t involve the likes of a prison and also fulfill the custodial needs, if felt necessary.

The Supreme Court while hearing the case of Gautam Navlakha v. NIA, [10]asked the legislature to ponder upon the concept of house arrest as an alternative to award of bail, and further highlighted that age, health condition, and antecedents of the accused along with the nature of crime shall be taken into consideration while grating their house arrest. Swamy was miserable during last few months as he claimed in his bail application and the same also been mentioned by his medical report by the Holy Family Hospital. The Apex Court also highlighted that deprivation of life and liberty during house arrest will fall under the provision of section 167 of the Code on Criminal Procedure, 1973. The court also referred to an article by J. Robert Lilly and Richard on “A Brief History of House Arrest and Electronic Monitoring” which highlighted the acceptability of practice of house arrest of political prisoners in India.

CONCLUSION

Indian bail jurisprudence states that “Bail is rule and jail is exception[11]”. Even in cases of Terrorist and Disruptive Activities (Prevention) Act, 1987 (TADA) and Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act, 1985 (Para of 12 K.N Najeeb v. Union of India) the court has asked that trial should be speedy otherwise Article 21 will be invoked. The bench in the K.N. Najeeb case, made reference to Shaheen Welfare Association vs. Union Of India,[12] where the court held that, “Stringent provisions are kept in mind that trial will be speedy but no one can justify the gross delay in disposal of cases when under-trials, perforce, remain in jail, giving rise to possible situations that may justify invocation of Article 21.” 

This article is not only an attempt to highlight the epithet situation which Stan Swamy went through, but also to point out to the readers that Indian prisons are not equipped with staff capable to deal with elderly prisoners and to provide them medical and psychological assistance when required. Further, Swamy’s story makes it more than evident that there is an urgency to provide a liberal approach to Section43 (D)(5) of UAPA, so that there isn’t another victim sacrificed at its hands.

  1. This is typically a mentality to portray a criminal as a martyr and that his human rights were denied. Stan Swamy’s role has been adequately examined in Elgar Parishad case, and there was incriminating evidences against him with links to banned Maoist organisations. He was charged with an attempt to overthrow the elected Government of India.
    Also, he did not die a custodial death. He was given best possible medical care and he eventually succumbed to age related ailments. It can be argued that he would not have access to such good medical care if not for directions of courts, going by the over stretched health infra during Covid.
    A criminal is a criminal and the law is equal for all. Doesnt matter if the criminal is 84 year old with Parkinson’s, Covid, Aids or anything else.
    Human rights are for humans, not for animals who justify killings in the name of Maoist ideology.

  2. I want to share a message that has been spreading all over the internet that concerns the times we are living in. Whether you believe in God or not, this is a must read message!

    We can see throughout time how we have been slowly conditioned to come to this point where we are on the verge of a cashless society. Would it surprise you to know that the Bible foretold of this event? Don’t believe me? This may be the most imporant message you will read in these times…please do not ignore this!

    This messsage reveals what the Mark of the Beast is, and the meaning behind counting a number people have been pondering for centuries, 666. This message also shares why Barack Obama is the Antichrist. This is truly a message from God!

    In the Revelation of Jesus Christ given to the apostle John, we read:

    “He (the false prophet who deceives many by his miracles) causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666” (Revelation 13:16-18 NKJV).

    Referring to the last generation, this could only be speaking of a cashless money society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Why? Revelation 13:17 tells us that we cannot buy or sell unless we receive the mark of the beast in our right-hand or forehead. We could still buy or sell among one another without receiving the mark if physical money was still currency. It logically deduces itself to this reason.

    These verses could not be referring to something spiritual because the word references two different physical locations (our right-hand or forehead) stating the mark will be on one “OR” the other. It once again logically deduces itself to this reason.

    Here is where it really starts to come together. It is shocking how accurate the Bible is concerning the RFID microchip. These are notes from a man named Carl Sanders who worked with a team of engineers to help develop this microchip in the late 1960’s.

    “Carl Sanders sat in seventeen New World Order meetings with heads-of-state officials such as Henry Kissinger and Bob Gates of the C.I.A. to discuss plans on how to bring about a one-world system. The government commissioned Carl Sanders to design a microchip for identifying and controlling the peoples of the world—a microchip that could be inserted under the skin with a hypodermic needle (a quick, convenient method that would be gradually accepted by society).

    Carl Sanders, with a team of engineers behind him, with U.S. grant monies supplied by tax dollars, took on this project and designed a microchip that is powered by a lithium battery, rechargeable through the temperature changes in our skin. Without the knowledge of the Bible (Brother Sanders was not a Christian at the time), these engineers spent one-and-a-half-million dollars doing research on the best and most convenient place to have the microchip inserted.

    Guess what? These researchers found that the forehead and the back of the hand (the two places Revelation says the mark will go) are not just the most convenient places, but are also the only viable places for rapid, consistent temperature changes in the skin to recharge the lithium battery. The microchip is approximately seven millimeters in length, .75 millimeters in diameter, about the size of a grain of rice. It is capable of storing pages upon pages of information about you. All your general history, work history, crime record, health history, and financial data can be stored on this chip.

    Brother Sanders believes that this microchip, which he regretfully helped design, is the “mark” spoken about in Revelation 13:16-18. The original Greek word for “mark” is “charagma,” which means a “scratch or etching.” It is also interesting to note that the number 666 is actually a word in the original Greek. The word is “chi xi stigma,” with the last part, “stigma,” also meaning “to stick or prick.” Carl believes this refers to a hypodermic needle (see photo).

    Mr. Sanders asked a Boston Medical Center doctor what would happen if the lithium contained within the RFID microchip leaked into the body. The doctor responded that if the microchip broke inside a human body, the lithium would cause a severe and painful wound filled with pus. This is what the book of Revelation says:

    “And the first (angel) went, and poured out his vial on the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore on the men which had the mark of the beast, and on them which worshipped his image” (Revelation 16:2).

    THE HIDDEN MEANING BEHIND THE NUMBER 666 REVEALED!

    What I first want to mention, before I share what the Holy Spirit has revealed to me concerning the number of the beast, is that God confirms in threes. We can see this throughout scripture:

    “For there are three that bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one” (1 John 5:7 NKJV).

    “and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures” (1 Corinthians 15:4 NKJV).

    “…Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, Who was and is and is to come!” (Revelation 4:8 NKJV).

    There are many more examples, but I thought I would just share three of them to make the point.

    Examining Revelation 13:16,17,18, the first group of three I would like to point out is that the mark of the beast is described in three separate verses, 16, 17 and 18.

    The next three I see is in verse 16, “He causes all…” is followed by three contrasting categories of people,

    1 – “both small and great,
    2 – rich and poor,
    3 – free and slave…”.

    Then unto verse 17, it opens with, “and that no one may buy or sell except one who has…”, followed by three explanations of what one must have to buy or sell,

    1 – “…the mark
    2 – or the name of the beast,
    3 – or the number of his name”.

    Now unto verse 18, we read “Let him who has understanding calculate…”, which is followed by,

    1 – “the number of the beast,
    2 – for it is the number of a man:
    3 – His number is 666”.

    The last three I see is the number “6” being used three times in a row. The reason I’m making this point about God confirming in three is because it is the key to unlocking how to calculate the number 666.

    Throughout the centuries there have been people trying to calculate numbers based on titles and names that come up to the number 666 to identify one person, the Antichrist; but from Revelation 13:18, I do not see where God is telling us to count up to 666, but rather to count the number of the beast. This number is identified as 666. So the verse is telling us to count the number 666.

    What does it mean to count? It means to add up. So how could we add up 666? Remember my previous point about God confirming in threes is key to unlocking the number 666. So logically, what would be the best way to count the number 666? To count it equally by using the rule of three based off the number.

    We cannot count it equally as 600+60+6, this would also bring us back to the start.

    We cannot count it as 600+600+600, or 60+60+60 because there are no zeroes in between or at the end of 666.

    The only logical option is 6+6+6=18.

    What is interesting is that the verse that reveals for us to count the number itself is verse 18 (there a total of 18 verses in Revelation Chapter 13), being the third verse out of the three verses that describe the mark of the beast in Revelation 13:16,17,18. What is 18 divided by 3? 6. So 3×6=18, or 6+6+6=18.

    Another interesting point is the only two other combinations (making a total of three possible combinations) for placing a “+” symbol in between 666 are:

    66+6=72 and 6+66=72.

    Add both 72’s together and you get 144.

    Why the number 144 is worth our attention is because the verse following Revelation 13:18 is the first time in the Bible where the 144,000 are being described in detail:

    “Then I looked, and behold, a Lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with Him one hundred and forty-four thousand, having His Father’s name written on their foreheads…” (Revelation 14:1).

    Now if you add up all three numbers from counting 666 by moving the “+” symbol around, it would be 72+72+18=162. What is compelling about the number 162, is, if you divide 144,000 by 162, you get 888. The name of Jesus in Greek gematria adds up to 888. The New Testament was originally written in the Greek language. Revelation 14:1 not only mentions the 144,000, but also the Lamb who is Jesus.

    Now what is interesting about the number for Jesus, 888, is that if you apply the same formula that was used to count 666, you get 8+8+8=24. Why the number 24? Revelation chapter 4 tells us there are 24 elders seated around the throne of God. This is the same throne where Jesus sits.

    Now if you take:

    8+8+8=24

    8+88=96

    88+8=96

    you get 24+96+96=216.

    Take 144,000 divided by 216 and you get 666.

    Remember that this was the same exact formula we used to count the number 666 that ultimately brought forth the number 888.

    Here is a quick recap to demonstrate how this formula confirms itself as being the true way to count 666:

    1: 6+6+6=18 > 66+6=72 > 6+66=72 > 18+72+72=162

    2: 144,000 divided by 162=888

    3: 8+8+8=24 > 88+8=96 > 8+88=96 > 24+96+96=216

    4: 144,000 divided by 216=666

    1: 6+6+6=18 > 66+6=72…

    As you can see, it is perpetual. And remember that we consistently used a formula that worked in threes being the number that God uses for confirmation.

    So what could this mean? Well we know in this world we are identified by numbers in various forms. From our birth certificate to social security, as well as our drivers license; being identified based on a system of ruler ship. So it is possible that this RFID microchip will contain a new identification that has a total of 18 characters (6+6+6).

    “here the wisdom is, the one having the mind let him calculate the number of the wild beast, number for “of human” it is, and the number of it 666″ (Revelation 13:1, Greek Translation).

    The Greek word “anthrōpos” being used in verse 18 where it says “of human” is the Greek strongs concordance G444. The first two definitions of the word are “a human being, whether male or female”, and, “generically, to include all human individuals”. Could the number of the beast apply to all mankind?

    In the Greek (the New Testament was originally written in the Greek language), and other translations, you will notice the beast is described as an “it”, instead of “him”. The reason I’m making this point is because when a translation says “His number is 666”, this would imply a singular person, the Antichrist. But by saying “the number of it 666”, implies that it is of the beast system as a whole.

    We can know the number of the beast cannot be to identify products (like a new barcode) to buy or sell because scripture says we cannot buy or sell without the number of the beast. What am I getting at? There will be instances where you could buy something someone made themselves and it wouldn’t have a store branded identification on it. But for this number to be in our chips, that is where it must be to conclude ultimately that we cannot buy or sell without having the number of the beast. As previously mentioned in Revelation 13:18, the number of the beast (6+6+6=18) is a “human number”, definition “generically, to include all human individuals”.

    “Why did the Biden campaign choose 30330? 2020 divided by 666 = 3.0330 Who believes this to be a coincidence? October 2020 Isaiah 53:6 Someone said we are being whipsawed in 2020. Truly a great division is taking place between good and evil—both symbolically and literally (riots, unrest, politics). If you take the current year 2020 and divide it by the number 666 (known for its satanic implications) you will get the number 30330 (repeated). This number 30330 happens to be the number used to vote for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. Freaky? Supernatural? Odd for sure. Whatever this means, it doesn’t seem good to me. First, why would anyone knowingly choose those particular numbers for their campaign? If they weren’t knowingly chosen, then it appears to be a supernatural act by the evil one himself and I would want to change those numbers ASAP. And if the numbers were chosen knowing their significance, are you satanic? Is this campaign satanic? Either way I do not believe this is a coincidence. And one thing is certain, 2020 is truly being divided by Satan. He is the master deceiver and spreader of chaos. Jesus calls him the father of lies.”

    So I looked up this number 30330 concerning Joe Biden, and I found this information:

    If you send a text to that number (at that time), you would get a response asking to support Joe’s campaign to take down Donald Trump, with one part in caps saying “CHIP IN >>” pointing to a link to go and donate.

    “CHIP IN”? Obama has used this phrase in the past on his twitter and people believe it is a subliminal message to receive the mark of the beast, that is to say the implantable RFID microCHIP that will go IN our body.

    Go to: http://voice-truth.org to see all the proof!

    Is your name written in the Lamb’s book of life? Jesus says that we must be born again to enter the kingdom of God in the Gospel of John chapter 3.

    “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    BARACK OBAMA IS THE ANTICHRIST:

    In the Islamic religion they have man called the Mahdi who is known as their messiah of whom they are waiting to take the stage. There are many testimonies from people online who believe this man will be Barack Obama who is to be the biblical Antichrist based off dreams they have received. I myself have had strange dreams about him like no other person. So much so that I decided to share this information.

    He came on stage claiming to be a Christian with no affiliation to the Muslim faith…

    “In our lives, Michelle and I have been strengthened by our Christian faith. But there have been times where my faith has been questioned — by people who don’t know me — or they’ve said that I adhere to a different religion, as if that were somehow a bad thing,” – Barack Obama

    …but was later revealed by his own family members that he indeed is a devout Muslim.

    So what’s in the name? The meaning of someones name can say a lot about a person. God throughout history has given names to people that have a specific meaning tied to their lives. How about the name Barack Obama? Let us take a look at what may be hiding beneath the surface…

    “And He (Jesus) said to them (His disciples), ‘I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven'” (Luke 10:18).

    In the Hebrew language we can uncover the meaning behind the name Barack Obama.

    Barack, also transliterated as Baraq, in Hebrew is: lightning

    baraq – Biblical definition:

    From Strongs H1299; lightning; by analogy a gleam; concretely a flashing sword: – bright, glitter (-ing, sword), lightning. (Strongs Hebrew word H1300 baraq baw-rawk’)

    Barak ‘O’bamah, The use of bamah is used to refer to the “heights” of Heaven.

    bamah – Biblical definition:

    From an unused root (meaning to be high); an elevation: – height, high place, wave. (Strongs Hebrew word H1116 bamah baw-maw’)

    The day following the election of Barack Obama (11/04/08), the winning pick 3 lotto numbers in Illinois (Obama’s home state) for 11/5/08 were 666.

    Obama was a U.S. senator for Illinois, and his zip code was 60606.

    These are just a few of many evidences why Barack Obama is the Antichrist. You can see many more in my article on the website above, as well as read about the dreams I’ve had concerning this man. I’m more than convinced that God has shown me that he is without a doubt the Antichrist, and we will see him rise to power in the not so dinstant future.

    Jesus stands alone among the other religions who say to rightly weigh the scales of good and evil, and to make sure you have done more good than bad in this life. Is this how we conduct ourselves justly in a court of law? Bearing the image of God, is this how we project this image into our reality?

    Our good works cannot save us. If we step before a judge, being guilty of a crime, the judge will not judge us by the good that we have done, but rather the crimes we have committed. If we as fallen humanity, created in God’s image, pose this type of justice, how much more a perfect, righteous, and Holy God?

    God has brought down His moral law’s through the 10 commandments given to Moses at Mt. Sinai. These laws were not given so we may be justified, rather that we may see the need for a savior. They are the mirror of God’s character of what He has put in each and every one of us, with our conscious bearing witness that we know that it is wrong to steal, lie, dishonor our parents, and so forth.

    We can try and follow the moral laws of the 10 commandments, but we will never catch up to them to be justified before a Holy God. That same word of the law given to Moses became flesh over 2000 years ago in the body of Jesus Christ. He came to be our justification by fulfilling the law, living a sinless perfect life that only God could fulfill; even bringing the law to it’s truest light by stating, “You have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart” (Matthew 5:27-28).

    The gap between us and the law can never be reconciled by our own merit, but the arm of Jesus is stretched out by the grace and mercy of God. And if we are to grab on, through faith in Him, He will pull us up being the one to justify us. As in the court of law, if someone steps in and pays our fine, even though we are guilty, the judge can do what is legal and just and let us go free. That is what Jesus did almost 2000 years ago on the cross. It was a legal transaction being fulfilled in the spiritual realm by the shedding of His blood.

    Because God is Holy and just, the wrath that we deserve could not go unnoticed. Through the perfect righteousness and justice of God’s character, it must be dealt with, it must be quenched, it must be satisfied.

    For God takes no pleasure in the death of the wicked (Ezekiel 18:23). This is why in Isaiah chapter 53, where it speaks of the coming Messiah and His soul being a sacrifice for our sins, why it says it pleased God to crush His only begotten Son.

    This is because the wrath that we deserve was justified by being poured out upon His Son. If that wrath was poured out on us, we would all die and go to hell. God created a way of escape by pouring it out on His Son whose soul could not be left in Hades, but was raised to life on the third day and seated at the right hand of God in power.

    So now when we put on the Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 13:14), God no longer sees the person who deserves His wrath, but rather the glorious image of His perfect Son dwelling in us, justifying us as if we received the wrath we deserve, making a way of escape from the curse of death.

    Now what we must do is repent and put our trust and faith in the savior, confessing and forsaking our sins. This is not just a head knowledge of believing in Jesus, but rather receiving His words, taking them to heart, so that we may truly be transformed into the image of God. Where we no longer live to practice sin, but rather turn from our sins and practice righteousness through faith in Him.

    Jesus answered, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again'” (John 3:5-7).

    Come before the Lord with a contrite spirit, humble yourself, ask Him for His forgiveness, to receive the free gift of His salvation, to receive His Holy Spirit, so that you may be transformed into a new creature, into a child of the living God.

    There is a reason why the words of Jesus have been translated in to over 2000 languages, and nothing comes remotely close (the Quran just over 100), because there is a God in heaven who desires to have a relationship with you, to know Him through His word, as that is how we personally get to know anybody. There is a reason why it is the year 2021, because Jesus came to earth just over 2000 years ago fulfilling major prophecy causing a divide in our timeline.

    Jesus loves you! Seek Him while He may be found! We must repent and turn from practicing sin…for if we are not following Jesus, we are following the devil. There is no neatural ground. We are either living in the lie, or the truth. God bless you!

  33. Zenith of hypocrisy and double standards
    The persons whose cause is espoused as he belongs to particular political leanings but purposefully ignores about lakhs of under trial men languishing in jail charged under Rape and Molestation charges just on mere word of women and to where bail is denied in eternity
    In average it takes man 3 to 5 year to get bail when arrested under rape charges and 1 to 2 years if charged under molestation charges and the cases of these under trial men is not even considered which shows the gender biased anti male tone of the article
    When nearly 65% of prison population consists of under trial why their plight is not discussed and the answer is clear who cares for men in highly feminist dominated academia and media
    If there is true regard for human rights then this aspect be discussed in detail by all
