ALL ABOUT STEALING TWO HEN



Not a joke but a naked truth –The case of a two stolen chicken and the verdict after a decade !

For stealing two hens fifteen years ago two get forty two months in jail. A decade ago after the accused stole two hens in the dead of a night on April 2005 from the petitioner’s chicken farm the Magistrate has sentenced them for forty two months of rigorous imprisonment as it was proved by the public prosecutor that when the accused was caught while stealing they assaulted the petitioner and the accused were charged for an offence under Sec. 394 for voluntarily causing hurt in committing robbery which can attract imprisonment for ten years. The accused immediately got a bail. The irony of it is that the judicial magistrate can pronounce sentence only up to three years and so the judicial magistrate has to forward the case to chief judicial magistrate. It is not over here if you think for it will drag on for some more years as the defense lawyer will be challenging the verdict in the session court.

Imagine yourself how our legal system is working and we pray that nothing of this kind will happen on NOV 18.
