Wednesday that it has decided to challenge in the Supreme Court the verdict acquitting him of all charges in the 2002 hit-and-run case The government told the High Court of its decision to file Special Leave Petition (SLP) in the Supreme Court to appeal against the acquittal of Salman by Justice AR Joshi who totally reversed the trial court judgement that sentenced the actor to five years’ imprisonment The Law and Judiciary Department had accorded sanction to the prosecution to file SLP in the Supreme Court Government Pleader Abhinandan Vagyani told a bench of Justices Abhay Oka and Gautam Patel The SLP would be filed in due course Vagyani said during the hearing of a public interest litigation filed by senior journalist Nikhil Wagle seeking compensation from Salman Khan for victims of the 2002 hit-and-run mishap Salman Khan AFP Justice AR Joshi on 10 December had acquitted Salman of all the charges on the ground that the prosecution had failed to prove that the actor was driving the car under the influence of liquor On 6 May a sessions court had sentenced the actor to five years’ jail after it held him guilty of offences including culpable homicide not amounting to murder According to the prosecution’s case on 28 September 2002 Salman had rammed his car into a bakery in suburban Bandra killing one person and injuring four others who were sleeping outside Although the actor has already deposited compensation for the families of victims as directed by the High Court Wagle’s petition is still being heard as the court expanded its scope to include the issue of enhancement of punishment in accident cases During the hearing of Wagle’s PIL on Wednesday the HC framed some issues and sought an answer from the government The bench wanted to know from the Government Pleader what type of devices were available with the authorities to hold blood analysis test of accused in hit-and-run cases to determine consumption of alcohol The bench also sought to know within how much time is the blood test conducted in accident cases To this Vagyani replied that the first five to seven hours after the mishap was the crucial period when ideally such examination is done and it is also prescribed in the Police Manual and Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act The HC however wanted to know whether there are any guidelines framed in this regard The matter has been posted for hearing in January after the vacations During the hearing of the PIL filed by Wagle the High Court raised certain issues about drunk driving cases such as enhancement of punishment and procedures involved in blood test and forensic examamination The judges sought to know whether the driving licences of offenders in drunk driving cases are suspended or revoked if they test positive for alcohol and what action is taken against officers who are found to be negligent in doing their duty in such cases Last week the Union Government had told the HC that it was considering a proposal to enhance punishment for drunk driving by amending IPC Sections 304 A (causing death by negligence) and 279 (rash and negligent driving) A draft bill pertaining to amendment to Indian Penal Code sections was being "scrutinised and finalised" Centre’s counsel Parag Vyas had informed the HC The lawyer said a draft proposal seeking to increase the compensation for accident victims under Motor Vehicles (MV) Act had been sent to the states 22 of whom had given their comments Comments from the remaining states were awaited Once this process was completed the government would take a final call on amending the Motor Vehicles Act Vyas said Jaiprakash Agarwal joint secretary in the Union Home Ministry had stated in an affidavit earlier that the Law Commission had recommended modification of Sections 304 A and 279 of IPC to make drunk driving a more serious offence The process had already begun and it will come up before the cabinet soon he said The maximum punishment for the offence under the Section 304 A is two years or fine or both and imprisonment for six months or fine or both under Section 279 Referring to a recent accident case involving a high profile lawyer Janhavi Gadkar the court asked why her driving licence which was revoked had been returned to her and whether the state government had done this The Government Pleader informed that it was returned on the orders of the lower court The bench then said that it would like to have a look at the order of the lower court which asked authorities to return the driving licence to the lawyer PTI New Delhi: BJP chief Amit Shah and Union minister Smriti Irani took oath as Rajya Sabha members on Friday File image of BJP chief Amit Shah PTI Rajya Sabha Chairman Venkaiah Naidu administered the oath to Shah and Irani in his chamber Shah is making his debut in Parliament Both were elected to the upper house from Gujarat earlier this month Prior to becoming an MP Shah was a five-term MLA in Gujarat They were accompanied by Parliamentary Affairs Minister Ananth Kumar Finance Minister Arun Jaitley and Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad among others Arvind Kejriwal should be really grateful to the voters of Delhi When he seemed to be down and out they have given him a new life by voting his party to an impressive win in the Bawana byelection on Monday The Delhi chief minister should thank his stars for the victory The Aam Aaadmi Party (AAP) appeared set for oblivion after the string of defeats in the Punjab Assembly election the Rajouri Garden by-poll and the elections for Delhi’s municipalities Bawana has ensured he will live to fight another day It will help him find both his voice and confidence Representational image Reuters The AAP’s victory by an impressive margin is important for two reasons: One it is one of the rare instances of the BJP not just losing an election but also lagging in the third place in several rounds before coming a distant second Since Bawana is a rural constituency close to Haryana it gives a sense of the mood of the electorate in areas far from the sound and fury of television and social media Two it once again underlines the importance of Kejriwal as an anti-BJP force Since the Opposition is trying to put together a coalition of parties to take on the BJP it would be forced by the Bawana result to rethink its strategy of keeping the AAP out of the united front Someday soon the Congress will be forced to set aside its hubris bury its differences with Kejriwal and consider the futility of a coalition without the AAP Many factors decided the outcome in Bawana Many times in the past Delhi’s voters have shown their reluctance to back renegades and deserters (bhagoras) This was evident in the result of the Rajouri Garden bypoll where voters destroyed the AAP for its decision of asking Jarnail Singh to quit and contest in Punjab Voters responded by making the AAP lose its deposit a fitting punishment for precipitating an unnecessary election A similar fate seems to have befallen the BJP in Bawana whose candidate Ved Prakash resigned from the Assembly and AAP in a bid to find new patrons Voters have taught both the turncoat and his benefactors a lesson Kejriwal was on a downward spiral since the loss in Punjab The win suggests his strategy of giving up confrontation and focussing on solving Delhi’s problems has worked Over the past few weeks Kejriwal had abandoned his strategy of attacking Prime Minister Narendra Modi and making grandiose plans across India He had been uncharacteristically sober and restrained since the loss in theMCD polls His only public appearance in recent times was a press conference to ask private schools to return the excess fees they had collected Perhaps voters have been impressed by the new reticent sincere Kejriwal Kejriwal is an important character in the great Indian political drama He is the only one to have shown the desire and the courage to take on the BJP This gives him an identity of his own because of the pusillanimity of the Congress and flip-flops of other important non-BJP leaders in the Opposition Kejriwal’s biggest asset is that unlike Rahul Gandhi who has no intent to take the BJP head-on with a clear strategy unlike Mamata Banerjee and Mayawati who have done business with the BJP in the past he is seen as somebody who never will never ally with the BJP in spite of pressure bullying and subterfuge This credibility makes Kejriwal important for Indian politics especially for some distant time in the future when Indian voters would be willing to re-evaluate Modi Kejriwal and AAP need to survive till then both for their personal benefit and for a healthy democracy When most of the prominent faces in the non-BJP parties – Nitish Kumar for instance – are being drafted by the BJP for its cause Kejriwal needs to survive so that the Opposition has a semblance of a voice and puts up a healthy fight But to be able to become a credible opponent of the BJP Kejriwal needs to prove his commitment to Delhi and ability to run a people-friendly government He needs to secure his backyard regain lost ground in Punjab and then wait for the right opportunity Voters of Bawana have given Kejriwal a clear idea of what he needs to do in the future More than a victory Bawana is a lesson in politics for Kejriwal By: Editorial | Published: July
