Six Absconded Criminals in Child Sexual Abuse Case Nabbed after Court Order

Ahmednagar,12th July

              Six absconded criminals in famous child sexual abuse case,  here, were finally nabbed by police after stern  order by Hon. Aurangabad bench of Mumbai High court yesterday. Snehalaya had rescued 2 minors (of age 14 and 16 yrs) and lodged an FIR against 22 and 26 criminals for their sexual abuse respectively. In February 2006, Snehalaya's volunteers had played a major role as witnesses and panchs in this case. Justice M.D.Keskar, Hon. Sessions Judge of Ahmednagar sentenced double life imprisonment to 20 criminals on 20 Sept.2010. Yet the other case is pending in the court.
               The 20 criminals in the first case and others in the second case were sent to Yerwada Central Jail of Pune. 6 notorious criminals were released on Parole (temporary leave) for 1 to 3 months. But all these were absconded since 290 - 363 days and allegedly violated parole after their release from jail. Now, during their hearing on the appeal in the High Court at Aurangabad, Snehalaya has drawn attention of Hon. Court on this horrifying situation with the help of Govt. pleader Vijay Savant. The court ordered police, first to put the criminals immediately behind the bars and then stopped the hearing of the matter.
             These absconded criminal includes Chetan Bhalagat, Abdul Haq Fakir Qureshi, Atmaram Dengale, Tukaram Misal, Herjitsing Rajpal, Ramakant Dengale. Now, all our volunteers, witnesses and their family members are free from fear and stress. Snehalaya had raised a few important questions to higher police and judicial authorities then. Snehalaya's witnesses had opposed the Parole of all these criminals in their written statements to the police. Even though the question remains how did they get the parole? Why police remained silent when we were consistently drawing attention towards these absconded criminals which we saw a lot of times? Now, the trial has started in second child abuse case.  Snehalaya's important volunteer plays the same risky role of witnesses again. The absconded criminals and their acquaintances want to tamper with the evidences and pressurize the witnesses. The question is that who will be responsible if anything happens to the team members (witnesses) or their family?
           'Team Snehalaya' is assuring to fight till conviction of these criminals like the previous case.
Satyamev Jayate !
