Was Aditya Thakrey involved in killing of Sushant Singh Rajput?

Sushant Singh Rajput, an accomplished actor was found dead on the night of 13-14 June 2020 at his home in Mumbai. He was single and aged 34 years. Mumbai Police registered ADR or Accidental Death Report and proceeded to investigate if there was any crime. So far it has found none. A week before his death, an employee of Sushant namely Disha Salian had allegedly committed suicide by jumping of high rise building in very suspicious circumstances.

Justice for Sushant Singh Rajput:

Father of Sushant, aged 70 lodged a complaint with police in Patna, Bihar which is his home town. According to him he had lodged a complaint on 25 February 2020 apprehending the threat to life of Sushant. Bihar police lodged an FIR and a team of Bihar police reached Mumbai and found out many financial details about Sushant. Rhea Chakravarti girl friend who was in ‘live in’ relationship with Sushant has been named a suspect in FIR.

An attempt by the Bihar cops to access documents linked to the alleged suicide of Sushant’s celebrity manager Disha Salian (28) was stonewalled by Mumbai Police on Sunday on grounds that they did not follow the protocol. Maharashtra home minister Anil Deshmukh said the Bihar team had exceeded their brief: the law requires an offence to be probed by police and courts within whose jurisdiction it has been committed. The obstruction by Mumbai police and Bihar Police touched a new high after a visiting IPS officer was forcefully placed under quarantine after the authorities having not insisted the ritual for the Bihar police team that arrived earlier.

The Mumbai police commissioner meanwhile stated that they have sought a legal opinion on ‘inter-jurisdictional’ probe being conducted by the Bihar police. The investigation into suicide of Sushant Singh Rajput seems to have lost priority amidst the tussle between two police forces which has now taken a political turn.  Today, Bihar Government has announced that it will recommend to the Federal Government for investigation by CBI. Mumbai Government has called this move to be without jurisdiction.

Meanwhile a picture of Aditya Thakrey, a Minister and son of Chief Minister of Maharashtra alongwith a girl (allegedly Rhea Chakravarti)  is circulating on social media. See

Remembering Rapes and Rain on Vijaydashmi 2013

Today is Vijaydashmi.

My greetings.

This Vijaydashmi has many peculiarities. First the thunderstorm two days ago. We woke up with lightning and heavy showers. For a long time we have not seen so much thunder and lightning. By luck nothing was struck by lightning. At least nothing is in news, so luck is presumed. But the rain in October is very rare.

Rain in October.

Second peculiarity is that it had rained in October last year too. Just before Vijaydashmi or Dashahra.
Vijaydashmi literally means ‘tenth day of victory’. Actually it should be and is meant to be the ‘the tenth day in the Calender when victory occurred’. Today is tenth day of month of ‘Ashwin’ in the year 2069 of Vikrami Calender. Vijaydashmi is celebrated every year on the 10th day of this month. Generally it falls on some day in October to early November. It is a day of victory over evil. Continue reading

Beware of monster serial killer(s) or psychopaths involved in Delhi bus rape!

Who is a psychopath or serial killer?

An anti social behavior in which the aggressor not only sexually violates the victim but also torture or mutilate the victim; which may extend to killing and is seemingly unconcerned or not compassionate about the pain or suffering of the victim. In some cases the pain or killing may cause arousal or satisfaction to the aggressor. They are also called as “intra-species predators”.

Position of Police in India about psychopaths

Police in India has always been very clever enough. It never allowed the press to label such psychopathic crimes as such. For if a criminal is shown to be acting involuntary, on the basis of some unknown mental force, he may plead insanity and get away from his due. The last such example was gruesome murders in Noida, another suburb of Delhi. The accused are convicted and shall suffer the sentence. following conclusion drawn from a study, of psychopaths is apt description:

The offenders in this study displayed aggressive and antisocial behaviors during their childhood which escalated and took on elements of sexual sadism in adulthood. There was also a style and pattern to their killings which involved domination, control, humiliation and sadistic sexual violence. The murders were committed without the least sense of guilt or shame and the killers displayed a total lack of remorse. The victims were chosen at random and the murders carried out in almost an obsessive manner.

A Psychopathic crime in Delhi and insensitive police

The horrific incident which took place two days ago at New Delhi is too painful to be graphically narrated here except for necessary facts. A school bus with 4-6 predators presenting itself as point to point private bus (called chartered bus) offered to give ride to two young friends, one male and other female at about 9.00 PM. Once inside they were beaten and stripped. Male was thrown at one secluded spot. The female, assaulted, tortured raped and thrown out half dead, an hour later. Crying girl got help after much delay. Police took hours to understand that matter can no be hushed. I hope that those delaying the first-aid to bleeding victim, shall be held accountable. The most horrific part is that these predator-rapist(s) inserted an iron rod in birth canal (pl. understand what I mean) and pierced right upto large intestine. Unbelievable.

This is no rape as it is perceived. It is a clear signature mark or pattern of killing in a most painful way. It is a surprise that victim is still alive. These actions are the identification of a psychopathic killer. Police in India seriously lack forensic or deductive skills but often rise to occasion. The crime scenes are compromised, most of the time. We may only hope they may not goof up this time especially in collecting the DNA evidence from crime scene to nail the accused.

It appears to me that the past history of these accused persons and their past encounters with women must be investigated by Delhi Police to find out if they or any one of them is a psychopath with trail of offenses or budding serial killer.

As regards the victim, no words can ease the pain she is undergoing. She has already underwent five surgical procedures. May God give her courage to face such horrific time and the pain she is undergoing.

PS: This is an article containing details about symptoms of psychopaths/predators:


The following conclusion from above article is thought provoking:

we need to study the brains and lives of every serial killer and psychopath from birth until death to be sure why they are what they are. One has to believe that it is a mixture of both, since no reasonable person could possibly rule out the importance of any one factor. The most important research is the research that shows that these people can be “redesigned” by a nurturing and caring environment; animal breeders can prove this theory. A person who has a fierce rottweiller that comes from a long line of fighting dogs bred for meanness and ferociousness can turn this dog into a sweet, loveable, lap dog with the right care and nurturing. However, there are extreme cases where the dogs are so mean that they just have to be euthanized. For the most part, however, the right environment can change the animal’s behavior completely. It would seem that the same reality would apply to people, and research shows that it does. In my opinion, it is not realistic to think that all of the psychopaths and serial killers in the world can be saved, but if we can catch the signs early in childhood, we may have a chance. Even though their brains may have abnormalities, we can certainly try to change their environments to redirect their development.

Terrorist and Disruptive Activities Act

The word harbours used in TADA must be understood in its ordinary meaning as for penal provisions. It is therefore reasonable to attribute a mental element (such as knowledge that the harboured person was involved in a terrorist act) as indispensable to make it a penal act. That apart, there is nothing in the Act, either expressly or even by implication, to indicate that means rea has been excluded from the offence

A juristic entity which could not have mens rea cannot be prosecuted and convicted. There is no question of company to have had the mens rea even if any terrorist was allowed to occupy the rooms in the Hotel The company is not a natural person. In many recent penal statutes, companies or corporations are deemed to be offenders on the strength of the acts committed by persons responsible for the management or affairs of such company or corporations e.g. Essential Commodities Act, Prevention of Food Adulteration Act etc. But there is no such provision in TADA which makes the company liable for the acts of its officers. (See Kalpnath Rai v. State (through CBI), 1998 CrLJ 369: AIR 1998 SC 201 : 1998 SCC (Cr) 134 : 1998 CAR 33 : 1997(4) Crimes 227 : 1997(4) Rec CrR 788)

Essential Commodities Act

Mens rea or ‘Guilty Mind’ is an essential ingredient of a criminal offence.

Doubtless a statute may exclude the element of mens rea, but it is a sound rule of construction adopted in England and also accepted in India to construe a statutory provision creating an offence in conformity with the common law rather than against it unless the statute expressly or by necessary implication excluded mens rea. The mere fact that the object of the statute is to promote welfare activities or to eradicate a grave social evil is by itself not decisive of the question whether the element of guilty mind is excluded from the ingredients of an offence. Mens rea by necessary implication may be excluded from a statute only where it is absolutely clear that the implementation of the object of the statute would otherwise be defeated. The nature of the mens rea that would be implied in a statute creating an offence depends on the object of the Act and the provisions thereof.

Having regard to the object of the Essential Commodities Act, namely, to control in general public interest, among others, trade in certain commodities, it cannot be said that the object of the Act would be defeated if mens rea is read as an ingredient of the offence. The provisions of the Act do not lead to any such exclusion. Indeed, it could not have been the intention of the Legislature to impose heavy penalties like imprisonment for a period upto 3 years and to impose heavy fines on an innocent person who carries on business in an honest belief that he is doing the business in terms of the law. Having regard to the scope of the Act it would be legitimate to hold that a person commits an offence under Section 7 of the Act if he intentionally contravenes any order made under Section 3 of the Act. So construed the object of the Act will be best served and innocent persons will also be protected from harassment. (See Nathulal v. State of Madhya Pradesh, 1966 CrLJ 71 : AIR 1966 SC 43 : 1965 Mah LJ 783 : 1965 MPLJ 832 : 1966 Mad LJ (Cri) 679)
