Rohtak. It took 22 years for a judge in Haryana to get justice for his daughter. For this, he had to fight his case up to the local court, CBI, High Court and Supreme Court. He is the judge, Additional District and Sessions Judge (ADJ) posted in Rohtak. The case was of the 1998 assault and kidnapping of his daughter.
Now on the order of the Supreme Court, the court of Additional District and Sessions Judge RP Goel of Rohtak found the accused guilty of assault and sentenced to 9 months imprisonment. A fine of Rs 900 has also been imposed on the accused. It took so many years to get a jail sentence of just 9 months.
According to the prosecution, on January 31, 1998, ADJ's daughter was pushed from behind by someone, causing her head to hit the wall and get hurt. The attacker also tried to press the daughter's mouth with paper and then escaped from there. The case was registered as a case of kidnapping attempt and assault. A few months later, his daughter identified the accused Kanwar Singh in DLF Colony.
It was learned about Kanwar Singh that he is the driver of the vehicle of the child development project officer of Rohtak. He was then caught. However, no further legal action could be taken. On which the complainant i.e. ADJ filed a petition in the Punjab and Haryana High Court that the case should be investigated by CBI. The reasoning was that he gets most of the cases of the Excise Act. There are vine applications and there is a lot of pressure on them.
Another special case of the case was that the then session judge, District Deputy Commissioner and Superintendent of Police were also placed under suspicion. Due to which the CBI investigation took place after the High Court order. In which the deficiency was told, then a CBI investigation took place. Accused innocent was found in that too. But the victim did not turn from her statements. Hence the case continued. Finally, the verdict has now come in the court of ADJ RP Goyal, justifying the victim's side.
