The Chief accused in the Delhi gang-rape case, Ram Singh, committed suicide.
“The main accused in the Delhi gang-rape case, Ram Singh was found dead in Tihar Jail on Monday morning in mysterious circumstances….A police guard found Singh hanging from the grill of his prison cell at 5:45 am, while there were three other inmates in the cell. They claimed they were asleep and had heard nothing…..Home minister Sushil Kumar Shinde said the death was a major security lapse on the part of prison authorities, saying the preliminary probe indicated it was suicide. “There were three other inmates in the cell in which Singh was found hanging,” Shinde said.” ( The Economic Times)
Agreed that Indian prisons have become operational centers for organized crime and death inside prison is a commonplace affair, which is often sponsored by police with the help of inmates. The fact that Indian prisons are breeding ground for henious crimes was the point I had highlighted when Supreme Court granted bail to Binayak Sen on the ground that ”Visitors are screened and searched by the jail staff. Jailors are there to oversee all these things. So, the question of passing letters or documents doesn’t arise.” I had strongly objected to such a misplaced stand of Supreme Court in my article devoted to granting of bail, wherein I stated: “Anybody who knows the Indian jails know quite well that all big criminals are operating from inside the jails. The contract to kill (Supari) is being ordered from inside the jails via the mobile. A surprise raid in any Indian jail would always lead to discovery of drugs, weapons, mobile phones and other prohibited things.” However, for Supreme Court and other paid media publications the prison at that time was no less than temple wherein visitors came with noble intentions.
After the murder of prime accused in Delhi gang-rape, once again the whole episode would be projected in one particular way with talks related to security within jails gaining prominence. Some conspiracy theories by paid media shall also be highlighted that would project police as the chief villain. However, for a conscious mind, that’s merely tip of the iceberg. In fact, when the Delhi gang-rape incident took place, and the paid media side-by-side huge number of protesters demanded justice for the unfortunate girl with candles and placards having slogans “Hang the rapists”, the author had suspected that there is more than meets the eye. However, being a lone voice, the feeling got suppressed even as this writer along with other thinking souls tried to point out the murkier game played behind the curtains with dubious role of police.
The piece that I wrote immediately after the Delhi gang-rape incident stated:
”I wish to clearly state that it would be fatal to confine the urge for changes to “safety of women alone” or, for that matter, demand for stricter provisions to prevent rape. This line of action is being deliberately highlighted under pressure from feminist wings, tactically supported by Congress government, which hopes to regain power with female voters and minority card in next Parliamentary actions. The mainstream media is also singing the same tune, because in wake of fear to lose government’s aid, it has no other option but to toe the stance taken by government. This whole drama which captured the nation’s attention from December 16, 2012, until death of gang-rape victim was a well-orchestrated show managed perfectly well by the paid media and Congress government. There are enough circumstantial evidences which give proof of it that the real story is something else and it’s more horrible than what we all came to witness in these past turbulent fifteen days. I will deal with this aspect later in this article but first let’s not ignore these pertinent points.”
The readers can have a look at that article to ascertain what could be the reasons, which indicate at involvement of hidden players in the orchestrated drama, which took place in the wake of gang rape. Now after the suicide of the main accused, which is apparently cold blooded murder, it would be quite obvious to thinking minds that real picture is indeed a “dirty picture”. And like always the real mastermind-the real villains-shall have the last laugh. I do not wish to shoot arrow in darkness since in absence of concrete facts there is always risk of arriving at flawed conclusions. However, there are enough circumstantial evidences to prove that police is merely a puppet in the hand of chief villain. The police was no more than a puppet when the gang rape occurred, and even now in the aftermath of the suicide of Ram Singh-the prime accused- is nothing but a puppet.
It has now become certain that we would not come to know what exactly happened in the name of gang-rape. All we know that a beautiful girl came to lose her life in a painful way. This case would remain an unresolved dilemma like the Ayushi murder case. It’s a painful scenario that conscious citizens can do nothing much other than being mute spectators. However, the citizens can remain alert by beginning to see beyond the obvious. That way they would begin to become aware of the great politics played in their name. That would be the beginning of making better changes in the system from the top to the bottom.
