Bail for IPL Accused
by vramanathan ramanathan on Jun 05, 2013 07:14 AM

it is surprising that the HON'ble HC has fixed bail of Rs.25000 for the accused when the sum involved in the scandal is crores. The HC has also not asked them to surender their Passports to avod them leaving the country: as happened in Quottarachi, Modi too.Our laws are of vintage prest and need change to suit present day conditions. LS has time only to pass laws to garner votes. Due respects to Judiciary. V Ramanathan village rengasxamudram

Well - at least rediff has this news

I was reading TOI today and watching NDTV news ...and this news is not there in the main page at all. Similarly no news regarding this from NDTV.
Till a couple of days back all both could talk about was Srinivasan.
So both TOI and NDTV get their money from same source.

Why rediff not putting this in headline prominently?
by Rajesh Chheda on Jun 04, 2013 06:51 PM

Arrest and remand extension of Vindoo and even movements of Gurunath were always on front headlines.
Why is their bail which actually is a bigger news than anything else on the page being sidelined such that one has to search for it.
This clearly shows prostitutionization of media who will lie nakedly just to get trps up.

Bail for Meiyapopan, Vindoo
by daniel thorat on Jun 04, 2013 06:33 PM

If the law provides for bails for any accused, alleged or actual, after they are arrested for some offences, then why ARREST them in the first place? Why should the State waste so much money, man-hours of police and judiciary, and why should a media build-up be allowed so freely, if the "accused" are honourably granted bail ? Does our legal system merely want to make a show of having done some acts of justice till the arrest, which the judiciary then demolishes and nullifies despite spirited defence by lawyers, and shows to the world how very sacrosanct and correct our judicial system is and also how our investigation agencies/police are so gullible to have gone through the hard word of arrests for no good reason? Or is it that arrests are merely a phase of procedures through which the "accused" have to pass? How can our Constitution continue to run with such obvious contradictions?

Bail for all.

This has open the gates for bail for rest of the bookies and cricketers. This was possibly the condition put forward by Mr Srinivasan to step aside so that his son -in law will be released on bail.
This is absolutely ridiculous.

It's curtains over for a 15 days serial on Vindoo and Meiyappan. The serial was exciting,full with suspense, Heroes' roles were played by flop or upcoming heroes. It attracted the maximun TRPs. Now wait for some new serial which, i am sure, is not very far. Thanx to public for showing interest.

These incidents raises several questions in my mind.

1. From the day #1 after the IPL match fixing broke out, the whole Media was gunning down Srinivasan immediately. There is at least some reasoning if it would have targeted IPL commissioner, but it directly went behind Mr. Srinivasan.
2. There are several cases before the police of Mumbai and Delhi unsolved. But in this case, both Police showed extra vigor in tracking the so called culprits.
3. If Guru indulged in a big crime, would one expect him to be such a fool to move around with a diary naming all the transactions, names of players, etc. Such a fool to speak openly about fixing matters in mobile phones. Even a petty criminal these days avoid mobile phone conversation, as it would be easy for police to trap them.

Please answer these questions.

The lawyers of the duo argued that custodial interrogation was not required in their case and hence the court graciously granted them bail ! One just cannot presume that the judges are unaware of the exact reasons why custodial interrogations are required ! If police try to elicit full details of any crime through smart and intelligent questionning, the truth will never come out, because as a rule a criminal is smarter than the police. The only way in which impossible crimes have been solved is through custodial interrogation, with the usual police methods (in a charge room !). By denying this facility, the court has deprived the investigators of the only chance getting the truth out. It does look as if the bail is a forerunner of their ultimate acquittal !
