Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu has been awarded one year of rigorous imprisonment in the 1988 road rage case in which Patiala resident Gurnam Singh had died. The punishment has been awarded to Sidhu under Section 323 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).

Reports said the Sidhu will be taken into custody by Punjab Police as per the order. The order was delivered by a bench of Justices AM Khanwilkar and Sanjay Kishan Kaul. Justice SK Kaul dismissed the petition that was filed under Section 304 of the IPC. Earlier, the Apex Court had reserved the order on an application seeking to enlarge the scope of notice in the 32-year-old road rage case against Sidhu.

Soon after Sidhu was sentenced to one year in jail, he tweeted that he will submit to the majesty by law.

Have a look at Navjot Singh Sidhu’s tweet:

A review petition was filed by the victim’s family that sought punishment for an offence of a more serious category than causing hurt leading to enhancement of punishment. Sidhu had urged the SC not to punish him with a jail term.

In March, the Congress leader had told the SC that the plea seeking enlargement of the scope of notice in the matter relating to the sentence awarded to him in the case is an abuse of process.

Navjot Singh Sidhu was held guilty in May 2018 of the offence of voluntarily causing hurt to a 65-year-old man in the case and was let off with a fine of Rs 1,000.

According to the prosecution, Sidhu and Sandhu were in a Gypsy parked in the middle of a road near the Sheranwala Gate Crossing in Patiala on December 27, 1988, when the victim and two others were on their way to the bank to withdraw money.

Apple becomes first tech giant to introduce ban on caste-based discrimination

Other big tech giants namely Amazon, Dell, Facebook owner Meta, Microsoft, and Google don’t out rightly name caste in their global policy.

The tech giant, Apple, which until recently only catered to dealing with western forms of discrimination has made an inclusive effort to add and tackle more forms of discrimination into its conduct policy. The tech giant, Apple, has become the first tech company to out rightly call out and ban Caste-based discrimination in employee conduct policy.

The understanding of caste discrimination is properly acknowledged in the Indian region but for the US folks, it would have been an unknown subject. Hence, the tech company has taken up the burden of sensitizing and informing its employees of other descent about the issue to train them up to the company standards and make sure they align to the principles set by the company.

Reportedly the new employee conduct policy was instated two years ago but the story was covered only recently. The policy is an add-on to the preceding policy which condemned discrimination against race, religion, gender, age, and ancestry.

The change in policy came in light of an event that transpired back in June 2020 in California where a lower caste employee with the help of California’s employee regulator sued two of his seniors who come from higher castes for blocking his career.

Another such incident took place when Thenmozhi Soundararajan, a Dalit rights activist, was asked to present at a talk on caste but was canceled due to internal issues that had alleged her to be inadequate for the subject she was presenting for.

These incidents became a wake-up call for tech giants to re-evaluate their code of conduct in light of their diversified employees.

Other organizations have also followed suit and reformed their code of conduct in consideration of their diverse team. IBM is another name that has come forward with its newly added policies and training to curtail Caste-based discrimination.

Other big tech giants namely Amazon, Dell, Facebook owner Meta, Microsoft, and Google don’t out rightly name caste in their global policy.

Kerala court

Kerala’s Kozhikode Session Court has issued a controversial statement in a sexual harassment case of activist Civic Chandran. The court said that section 354 A of the Indian Panel Code could not be invoked when a woman was wearing a sexually provocative dress.

The court observed that the images submitted by the accused would demonstrate that the complainant herself exposed outfits which had some sexually suggestive ones, and in this case, section 354 A (sexual harassment) will not prima facie stand against the accused.

Judge S Krishnakumar said that there was no adequate proof that the woman’s honour and dignity had been damaged in order to file a complaint.

He said that even if there was physical contact, it is inconceivable to think that a 74-year-old man with physical limitations could forcibly put the de facto complainant in his lap.

The incident happened in February 2020 at Nandi Beach near Koyilani where the accused allegedly grabbed the complainant’s hands, pressed her breast and urged her to sit on his lap.
