The court will hear the matter on Monday, 12th April 2021.If the Supreme Court accepts the Surveyor’s report, it may lift the stay granted by it on the dismantling the vessel in plea filed seeking to preserve the iconic ship in national interest.The Marine Insurance Surveyor in its report dated 12th Feb 2021 has called the vessel a ‘dead structure’ and stated that 40% of the dismantling and recycling work of the vessel is already completed.According to the report, all major fixture and furniture and necessary machineries are dismantled and all navigational items and communications devices are broken and removed from its place due to the vessel being laid up since very long time.During the hearing today, Senior Advocate Rajeev Dhawan appeared on behalf of Shree Ram Group of Industries, who purchased the ship in an open purchase agreement. The respondent was also represented by Advocates Akash Avinash Kakade and Somanath Padhan before the Court.The Bench was initially inclined to take up the matter for hearing after two weeks Senior adv Rajeev Dhawan informed the Court that the petitioner has asked to appear in person, and file an application in this regard.”This is a director not in a position to afford a lawyer, and this person is making a bid.” Dhawan remarked. CJI Bobde stated that she has only said that they cannot afford the particular lawyer who was engaged in the present case. Dhawan submitted that the petitioners wish to convert the ship to a park and they are asking the Government to pay 40-60% of the cost.”We don’t know who these people are. They say government will have to pay 40-60% of the cost. This is a fly by night petition, and at present we are losing 1.6 crores due to the Court’s stay order. ” Dhawan submitted.Dhawan added that application for permission to appear and argue in person was listed but before she could say anything the Court had issued notice instead.”The permissions are granted by the Registry I’m told and not by us. The procedure is that interaction is with Registrar of this court and then court grants permission based on Registrar’s report which is positive in this case” CJI observedDhawan further submitted that the ship was actually beached completely and because of the stay they are now spending 1.6 crores per month and 5 lakhs per day in maintaining that particular status quo.”How’d you spend 5 lakhs a day?” CJI asked.Dhawan responded to CJI’s query and stated that when there is a tug, also called cheetah, it pulled the ship and beached it. Dhawan made submissions informing the Court about the report of the Marine Insurance Surveyor, which has stated that the vessel is dead structure’, is totally in grounded condition and is therefore not in a seaworthy condition or in a navigational position. The report has also stated that 40% of the dismantling and recycling work of the vessel is already completed.”Its an open purchase, and they paid good money for it, and its become their property. They have already broken 40% of it. ” CJI remarked.The Petitioner in person and director of the petitioner company Rupali Sharma submitted that warships around the world have been converted to Museums. “The warship has become a private property and 40% of it has been broken down.” Bench remarked.The Bench further stated that the point here is not if the vessel is sea worthy or not, as no body has to sail her anymore.Dhawan however added that the idea of the petitioner is to sail it to Goa, as right now the ship is in Kandla. The Goa Minister has stated they won’t contribute the money they want them to, Union of India and Defency Ministry has said no to this, and the Gujarat Marine Pollution Board has said it cannot be sailed.At this point the Bench observed that it is inclined to accept the surveyor’s report and has granted one week time to the petitioner company to look at the report and see if there’s something wrong with the report.It was on February 10 that the top court stayed the dismantling of decommissioned Indian Navy aircraft carrier ‘INS Viraat’ while issuing notice on a petition filed by a private company, who offered to preserve the iconic ship in national interest.A bench headed by the Chief Justice of India was considering a petition filed by M/s Envitech Marine Consultants Private Limited, which is interested in buying the ship from its present owner to convert it into a maritime museum.The ship was sold to Shree Ram Ship Breakers in an auction last year. The ship is now beached at Alang in Gujarat where it is being dismantled.The owner of the company had previously told the bench that they are willing to offer Rupees 100 crores for the ship which was auctioned off for nearly Rs 65 crores. The bench had sought the responses of the Ministry of Defence and the present owner of the ship.Envitech Marine Consultants had earlier approached the Bombay High Court with the prayer. On November 3 last year, a division bench comprising Justices Nitin Jamdar and Milind Jadhav directed the Ministry of Defence to take a decision on the representation made by the company for NOC to acquire the ship. On November 27, the Ministry rejected the request for NOC. The 65-year old aircraft carrier INS Viraat was inducted into the Indian Navy in 1987, after being acquired from UK, and decommissioned in 2017.Click Hear To Download/Read OrderSubscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

News Updates”Just Because Wife Died In Matrimonial House Within Two Months Of Marriage, Entire Family Cannot Be Stigmatized For Serious Offence Of Murder”: Bombay HC Nupur Thapliyal14 April 2021 10:34 PMShare This – xThe Bombay High Court recently acquitted husband and in laws of a deceased wife who committed suicide within two months of marriage after observing that just because the wife died in the matrimonial house within a period of two months, the entire family cannot be stigmatized as having committed offences as serious as offence under sec. 302 of Indian Penal Code providing for the punishment…Your free access to Live Law has expiredTo read the article, get a premium account.Your Subscription Supports Independent JournalismSubscription starts from ₹ 599+GST (For 6 Months)View PlansPremium account gives you:Unlimited access to Live Law Archives, Weekly/Monthly Digest, Exclusive Notifications, Comments.Reading experience of Ad Free Version, Petition Copies, Judgement/Order Copies.Subscribe NowAlready a subscriber?LoginThe Bombay High Court recently acquitted husband and in laws of a deceased wife who committed suicide within two months of marriage after observing that just because the wife died in the matrimonial house within a period of two months, the entire family cannot be stigmatized as having committed offences as serious as offence under sec. 302 of Indian Penal Code providing for the punishment for murder. A division bench comprising of Justice NR Borkar and Justice Sadhana S Jadhav set aside a Sessions Court judgment dated 29th June 2012 convicting husband and other family members for offences punishable under sec. 498-A, 302, 304-B r/w 34 of Indian Penal Code and sec. 3 and 4 of the Dowry Prohibition Act. The High Court was of the view that the marriage was hurriedly effected by the parents of deceased wife since they found a suitable match for their daughter thereby going against her wishes and will of continuing her education. The Court also opined that the suicide was committed in a “state of stress”. Sachin and Megha got married on 28th July 2010 and resided in a joint family. In September 2010, two months after the marriage, Megha was found hanging to the rafter inside her bedroom. A report was then lodged by her father at the police station alleging that her daughter complained to him that she was subjected to ill treatment and harassment for not getting a gold ring for Sachin and was also subjected to starvation. About 9 witnesses were examined by the prosecution whereas the defense examined 4 witnesses. It was the case of the appellants that there was cogent and convincing evidence showing that there was no dispute between the members of both the families over dowry or goal ornaments. Moreover, it was also argued that the fact that Megha committed suicide within 2 months of her marriage shows that she was married against her wishes. On the other hand, the prosecution submitted that Megha died in her matrimonial home due to the mental depression leading to her suicide which ought to have been known to the accused persons. It was also submitted that Megha’s complaints to her father and brother on previous occasion also showed that she was ill treated for not honoring the family well at the time of marriage and not fulfilling the demand of giving golden ring. The Court after going to the facts of the case and examination of witnesses, observed that the medical evidence proved beyond all reasonable doubt that the cause of Megha’s death was asphyxia due to hanging and therefore, conviction for an offence under section 302 of IPC was unwarranted. The Court also took note of the statement of the neurologist with whom Megha was taking treatment, that she was under mental stress since 2005 and was a sensitive girl. “Therefore, no case is made out for conviction under section 498A of IPC. In cases like the present one just because wife has died in her matrimonial house within two months of marriage, the entire family cannot be stigmatized as having committed offences as serious as an offence under section 302 of IPC. In absence of legally admissible evidence there cannot be moral conviction.” The Court observed. Noting that the presumption under sec. 113B of Indian Evidence Act was attracted in the case, however the Court opined that it is a rebuttable presumption and does not absolve the prosecution from proving the case beyond all reasonable doubt. In view of this, the Court observed thus: “The surrounding circumstances also need to be taken into consideration. In the present case, it cannot be said that she has died in suspicious circumstances. It is a case of suicide within two months of marriage. The prosecution has failed to prove any ill-treatment meted out to the victim within two months of her matrimony. The offence under sections 3 and 4 of the Dowry Prohibition Act are not proved beyond reasonable doubt.” The Court set aside the impugned judgment after observing that: “It prima facie appears that the deceased Megha was willing to continue her education, however, she was married hurriedly by her parents since they found a suitable match for their daughter in all aspects. However, she did not seem to be happy with the marriage and in all probabilities, in a state of stress had committed suicide. All these facts speak for themselves and the appellants/accused deserve to be acquitted.”In a similar case, a Delhi Court earlier this month acquitted husband and in laws of a deceased wife, who committed suicide within one month of marriage, of the charges of cruelty, dowry death and abetment to suicide after observing that “normal wear and tear in the family in an initial period of marriage cannot amount that the woman was tortured to an extent that she was compelled to commit suicide.”The Court also observed that “If a bride/girl commits suicide in unnatural circumstances within few days or month of her marriage, the law raises presumption against boy’s family but doesn’t it also show hyper sensitivity of a girl who did not give time to this pious relationship.”Title: Sachin Ramchandra Teke v.

ABC News(NEW YORK) — The number of law enforcement officers who died while in the line of duty went up this year, from 129 deaths in 2017 to 144 so far in 2018.The figures, released today by the National Law Enforcement Officer’s Memorial Fund, shows that the number of firearm deaths outpaced the number of traffic related deaths in 2018, with 52 officers dying because of gunshots and 50 dying as a result of a traffic incident.The 2017 fatality total marked one of the two lowest years in the past decade, and experts had been hoping that it was the start of a downward trend.“We’re not surprised to see this increase, but we certainly are disheartened to see it,” said Steve Groeninger, the director of communications for the Memorial Fund.“We were hoping that maybe we were on to something,” he said of the dip in the 2017 numbers, “so to see all of the categories increase was disheartening.”The numbers released Thursday are preliminary numbers for 2018, spanning Jan. 1 to Dec. 26 of this year, and were compared to that same period in 2017.Of the 52 firearm-related fatalities, the highest number of those — 14 — took place while officers were attempting to arrest an individual.The others included those killed during an investigation, in response to domestic disturbances, ambushes, during traffic stops, while transporting prisoners or responding to specific calls.Two of the firearm deaths were instances of law enforcement officers inadvertently being fatally shot by other law enforcement personnel.One of those instances stemmed from the shooting at a bar in Thousand Oaks, California, which was one of the deadliest mass shootings of the year. Sgt. Ron Helus was one of the law enforcement officers to respond to the deadly shooting, where he and 11 others were killed.It was later revealed that Helus died as a result of friendly fire during a chaotic gunfight between responding officers and the suspect.The Memorial Fund also broke down the firearms that were used in the 52 shooting fatalities, with the majority of them — 31 — involving a handgun. Four of the 52 shooting deaths were instances where law enforcement officers were disarmed and shot with their own weapons. The remaining 17 were with other unspecified firearms.Of the 50 traffic-related fatalities, the majority of those — 32 — were killed in connection to traffic crashes. Others were struck while outside their vehicle or killed in motorcycle crashes.One such traffic crash happened just days ago, when Detective Deidre Mangedoht was killed on Christmas Eve during a traffic stop in Louisville, Kentucky.John Cohen, a former acting undersecretary at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and current ABC News consultant, said that “sadly” he doesn’t find the increase surprising either.“Our society is more polarized. People are angry. More people are willing to use violence in response to a grievance or in furtherance of an ideological or political cause, and unfortunately that includes targeting police officers,” said Cohen, who previously worked as a police officer himself.“It’s hard as a law enforcement professional to view these statistics as anything but extraordinarily sad… Each of these officers had a family,” he said.“For the most part, people become police officers to better our society and each one of these cases, the ultimate price was paid to do so,” Cohen added.

Courtesy Ben Crump LawBy JULIA JACOBO, ABC News(MINNEAPOLIS) — The trial for Derek Chauvin, the former Minneapolis police officer charged in the death of George Floyd, begins Monday in Minneapolis.He faces charges of manslaughter, second-degree murder and third-degree murder.The trial is expected to last four weeks.Mar 29, 11:54 amThe evidence goes beyond the video, defense saysEric Nelson, Chauvin’s defense attorney, emphasized during his opening statement that the evidence for the case is “far greater than 9 minutes and 29 seconds.”The evidence has been collected “broadly and expansively” and includes several police experts and at least 200 civilian witnesses, Nelson said.Nelson will spend the trial talking about “reason and common sense and how that applies to the evidence,” Nelson said.The store clerk at Cup Foods who accused Floyd of making a purchase with a fake $20 bill will be among those who testify, Nelson said.Attorneys will also question one of Floyd’s friends who was in the Mercedes-Benz after he left the store. The friend previously stated that Floyd consumed what she believed to be two Percocet pills before police arrived. Floyd then fell asleep, Nelson said.When officers arrived, Floyd put drugs in his mouth in an effort to conceal them from police, Nelson said.Mar 29, 11:29 amThree witnesses “called the police on the police” during Floyd encounter, prosecutor saysThree people who witnessed Chauvin kneeling on Floyd’s neck called 911 on the officers who were at the scene, Blackwell said.A first responder, who was distressed that the officers were not checking Floyd’s pulse or performing chest compressions on him, called the police, Blackwell said.Another man, who Blackwell described as a “very focal” bystander with a background in security and mixed martial arts, also called the police.The third person was a 911 dispatcher who could see the encounter through a fixed police camera on the scene.The incident was “so unusual, and for her, so disturbing,” that she called a sergeant at the police department to alert him to what was happening, Blackwell said.Mar 29, 11:42 amChauvin watches intently as prosecutor plays witness videoBlackwell played a portion of the 9 minute and 29 second video taken by a witness on May 25, 2020.“For half of that time, Mr. Floyd was unconscious, breathless and pulseless,” Blackwell said.Blackwell said Floyd can be seen repeatedly heaving his right shoulder into the air. This move was an attempt by Floyd to expand his ribcage so he could breathe, as he was “pancaked” between the hard pavement beneath him and Chauvin on top of him, Blackwell said.Chauvin watched intently as the video was played in the courtroom.Mar 29, 11:05 am“Mr. Chauvin betrayed his badge,” prosecutor saysDerek Chauvin failed the responsibilities that come with the badge he was given by the Minneapolis Police Department when he pressed his knee on George Floyd’s neck and killed him, prosecutor Jerry Blackwell said in opening statements Monday.Part of the oath Minneapolis police officers take is to enforce the law “courteously and appropriately,” while “never employing unnecessary force,” Blackwell said, adding that Chauvin violated both when he engaged in the “grinding and crushing” of Floyd “until the very life was squeezed out of him.”“Mr. Chauvin betrayed his badge,” Blackwell said.Floyd was unarmed, in handcuffs and did not present a threat to anyone, Blackwell said.“He was completely in the control of the police,” Blackwell said. “He was defenseless.”Blackwell vowed to give Chauvin a fair trial, but stated that he was “anything but innocent” on May 25, 2020 — the day that Floyd died.The prosecution plans to prove that Chauvin engaged in “force that he applied without the regard for its impact,” Blackwell said.Mar 29, 10:50 amAttorneys for George Floyd’s family speak ahead of trialThe civil rights attorneys representing the family of George Floyd — Benjamin Crump, Antonio Romanucci and L. Chris Stewart as well as Rev. Al Sharpton — spoke to reporters Monday morning.“Today starts a landmark trial that will be a referendum on how far America has come in its quest for equality and justice for all,” Crump said, with Floyd’s family present.Crump stressed that the evidence against Chauvin speaks for itself, saying this “murder case is not hard.”“We’re not asking for anything extraordinary,” Crump said. “We’re asking for equal justice under the law.”Mar 29, 10:36 am15th juror to be excusedHennepin County District Court Judge Peter Cahill will excuse the 15th juror chosen for Chauvin’s trial as court gets underway.The first 14 jurors are present and will be sworn in and seated.Eight jurors are white and six are people of color, including four jurors who self-identify as Black. There are nine women and five men.Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.

They will be joined by up to 20 international and local tall ships and at least six military bands.This one-in-one-hundred-year event will commence with 20 tall ships entering Sydney Harbour on Thursday 3 October, followed by the Combined Warship Entry on Friday 4 October including a symbolic group of seven warships representing the original 1913 fleet.To mark this historic occasion, Her Excellency the Governor General of Australia will welcome the Fleet from Bradley’s Head on 4 October and officially review the fleet onboard HMAS Leeuwin on Saturday 5 October as part of the Ceremonial Fleet Review.Naval aviation will also feature on 5 October with more than a dozen RAN and visiting navy helicopters taking part in the day via a massed helicopter flypast over the harbour. Other activities staged during the afternoon include navy helicopter displays, RAAF and historic maritime aircraft flypasts. Saturday 5 October will conclude with the International Fleet Review Pyrotechnics and Lightshow Spectacular at 7.30pm, the scale of which will be similar to Sydney’s annual New Year’s Eve celebrations.“The International Fleet Review Sydney 2013 will be the largest commemorative event the Royal Australian Navy has ever undertaken,” says Vice Admiral Ray Griggs, Chief of Navy. “We expect it to rival our wonderful 75th Anniversary and Bicentenary celebrations that occurred in 1986 and 1988, with up to one million spectators lining the Sydney Harbour foreshores to witness history in the making.”Further International Fleet Review activities include Tall Ship and Warship Open Days at Cockle Bay, Darling Harbour, Fleet Base East, Garden Island and Barangaroo on Sunday 6 and Monday 7 October; Freedom of Entry parades in Mosman and Parramatta on Tuesday 8 October; a Combined Navies Parade along George Street from The Rocks to Town Hall on Wednesday 9 October, the RAN Sea Power Conference and Pacific 2013, an international maritime trade show at the Convention Centre from 7-10 October.Over 8,000 Australian and visiting naval personnel are expected to participate in the event which is being staged in partnership with the NSW State Government and the City of Sydney. The event is expected to bring around $50 million into the state’s economy.Many of the Australian and international warships will participate in Exercise TRITON CENTENARY 13 off the east coast of Australia and/or visit other Australian ports before and following the International Fleet Review.Tall Ships from around the world will embark on an exciting journey to Australia to help celebrate the centenary of the Royal Australian Navy’s fleet entry into Sydney Harbour. Australian and foreign tall ships will visit Fremantle, Melbourne and Hobart prior to gathering in Sydney on 3 October 2013 then take part in a special regatta race to Auckland, New Zealand.[mappress]Naval Today Staff, April 10, 2013; Image: Australian Navy View post tag: Defense Training & Education View post tag: historic View post tag: International View post tag: fleet View post tag: Naval View post tag: review Back to overview,Home naval-today Australian Navy Counts Down to Historic International Fleet Review View post tag: Counts
