Case brief

Case summary

     The matter is a series of the incidents and continuous harassment and torture of the deceased and his family over the land dispute which belongs to the Dalit family. With the intention to grab the 9 Bigah land, the accused people have been harassing, torturing and committing physical assault against the family for last twenty years. The fact is that, the deceased Prabhuram Bawari’s wife Mrs Chuka Devi inherited the 9 Bigah land from her father as she was the only child of her father Mr Ramuram. It is learnt that twenty years back, Ramuram adopted his brother’s son Mr Bhanwar Lal Bawari and declared him his successor. Upon this, the accused committed serious physical assault with Bhanwar Lal. After the death of Ramuram, Dakha Devi w/o Late Ramuram called her daughter Chuka Devi and her husband from her inlaw to live with her. It is stated that Mr Kana Ram Bawari, the brother of Late Ramuram, allegedly forged the sale-deed of the disputed land in the name of Mr Om Prakash Meghwal resident of Mandsaur, Madhya Pradesh and got the signature of Dakha Devi on the papers. In this conspiracy, Ghanshyam Sharma and Anand Singh Rajput and others of Jusari village were also involved. For this incident, FIR no. 24/2015 dated 5/2/2015 had been lodged in the police station Makrana. Police has filed FR in the matter.


In the same connection, on 25/10/2015, the accused namely Anand Singh, Daulat Singh, Ghanshyam Sharma, Manish, Dhirendra Singh, Kana Ram and others organized an attack upon Prabhuram house around 9:30 in the night and set the house on fire after destruction of the household items. When one Amar Singh Rajput interfered to protect the victims, he had also been beaten up by the accused people. This incident caused the heavy loss to the victim family. FIR no 355/2015 was lodged u/s 323, 341, 452, 307 IPC and 3SC/ST (PoA) Act but no arrest has been made by the police. Subsequently, after four months, the case was transferred to the CID/CB for investigation which is still pending. It is noticeable that if Mr Amarjeet Singh Bedi (Investigation Officer) would have done his duties properly, the murder of Prabhuram could have been avoided.     


In the next episode of the atrocity, Ghanshyam Sharma, Dhirendra Singh and others went to the house of Prabhuram at 5:30 in the morning in the Bolero with deadly weapons and kidnapped the deceased. First they bet Prabhuram and then crushed him under the Bolero at Devla Ki Nadi. Prabhuram died on the way to Jaipur Hospital. For this incident, FIR no. 173/2016 u/s 147, 148, 149, 352, 307, 365, 302379, 120B IPC and 3(1)(f)(g) SC/ST (PoA) Act.
