A charter for the CBI

  • "There is a distinction between the constitutional responsibility of the Minister for the exercise of executive power in respect of public order, police and enforcement of Criminal law on the one hand and statutory duties of the Police and Magistrate to exercise powers vested in them by the Police Acts and the Code of Criminal Procedure.
  • It is the constitutional duty of the Minister, as head of the Department in charge of the police, who are instruments of maintenance of public order and enforcement of criminal law, to ensure that the Police discharge their functions and exercise their powers properly and diligently.
  • But beyond that, the Minister cannot go and issue specific instructions as to the manner of exercise of their statutory powers. That would amount to interference."
  • The Home Minister is responsible to the legislature if there is "gross negligence or general failure or neglect to perform its statutory functions by the police in preventing the commission of offences or of bringing offenders to justice or there is a general failure to maintain law and order."
  • The very foundation of the rule of law, a part of the unamendable "basic structure" of the Constitution, is a police force which is free from political interference. British works on constitutional law discuss the constitutional status of the police; Indian works discuss the police only in the context of Centre-State relations.
  • Justice Kapur cited the Calcutta High Court's judgment in the famous " gherao " case which held that no government can interfere in the enforcement of the law of the land by the police whose powers are defined by the Cr.P.C. In a classic ruling, Lord Denning said, "I hold it to be the duty of the Commissioner of Police, as it is of every chief constable, to enforce the law of the land.
  • He must take steps so to post his men that crimes may be detected, and the honest citizens may go about their affairs in peace.
  • He must decide whether or not suspected persons are to be prosecuted and, if need be, bring the prosecution or see that it is brought, but in all these things he is not the servant of anyone, save of the law itself. No Minister of the crown can tell him that he must, or must not, keep observation on this place or that, or that he must, or must not, prosecute this man or that man. Nor can any police authority tell him so.
  • The responsibility for law enforcement lies on him. He is answerable to the law and to the law alone."
  • The National Police Commission pointed out in its second report that, apart from the "political sources," industrialists, businessmen et al also try to influence the police. S.3 of the Police Act, 1861 confers on the States powers of "the superintendence of the police force."
  • The commission noted that "in the guise of executive instructions… attempts have been made to subordinate police personnel to executive requirements."
  • Article 227 confers powers of "superintendence" over all courts and tribunals. It does not imply power to interfere unless the law is violated.

Current Affairs for IAS Exams - 20 August 2013

Where have all the women gone?

  • Have women fared better than men, and girls better than boys in the last decade or so? In the din over a dramatic reduction in poverty in the period 2009/10-2011/12 that is unlikely to die down, deep questions about the discrimination and deprivation that women face from the womb to the rest of their lives are either glossed over or, worse, just ignored.

The Sen norm

  • Amartya Sen sought to capture the cumulative impact of multiple forms of deprivation that women face over their lives in an intuitively appealing measure of "missing women."
  • It aims to capture women's adversity in mortality and to better understand the quantitative difference between (1) the actual number of women, and (2) the number we expect to see in the absence of a significant bias against women in terms of food, and health care.
  • First, the difference between the sex ratio norm of women per 1,000 males and actual sex ratio is computed. Second, multiplying it by the number of males, the number of missing women is obtained.
  • This is an absolute measure. A relative measure requires division of missing women by surviving women. In the same way, absolute and relative estimates of missing girls are computed.
  • Dr. Sen's original estimate of missing women in India in the 1980s was 37 million in a global total of more than 100 million missing women.
  • Another estimate is lower for India (23 million) in a total of 60 million in selected countries, based on the western demographic experience.
  • More recent estimates point to higher numbers of missing women. The important point, however, is not that the differences are large but the fact that "gender bias in mortality takes an astonishingly high toll" .
  • The sex ratio rose in India from 932.91 per 1,000 males in 2001 to 940.27 in 2011, implying a decadal growth of 0.70 per cent. Using the same norm that Dr. Sen used, our estimates of missing women rise from 46.35 million in 2001 to 49.73 million in 2011, an increase of 3.38 million.
  • The decadal increase was thus 7.30 per cent. As the number of missing women depends on the difference between the sex ratio norm and the actual multiplied by the number of men, a narrowing of the difference between these ratios was more than compensated for by the larger number of men. However, as a share of surviving women, there was a reduction — from 9.33 per cent in 2001 to 8.48 per cent — implying a decadal reduction of 9.17 per cent.

Evidence that water once existed on Martian soil found

  • In the first series of the Curiosity rover's analysis of fine Martian soil samples, scientists have found that two per cent of it is water by weight.
  • They have also found other evidence that hint at liquid water having once existed on the planet.
  • Soil samples were picked up from a patch of sand, silt and dust called Rocknest. They were heated to 835 degrees Celsius and studied by instruments onboard the rover.
  • "Analysis by the rover's instruments found that, locked up in every cubic foot of Martian dirt, there were almost two pints of water.
  • "That's a real resource for future explorers. We can access it with just a little bit of heating," she quipped.
  • Because of similarities between the compounds in the soil and the atmosphere, the 'dirt' collected by the rover seems to have acted as a sponge for the atmosphere, which is where the volatile materials could be derived from.
  • Thus, these minerals are constantly blown around by winds, and they mix with dust from other parts of the planet.
  • This finding is supported by other papers in the report, which found most minerals to be of basaltic origins.
