Court gets justice after 16 years of good work hastily done by police involved



Agra: In order to show his good work, the police turned the innocent man around for 16 years making him a defendant. But when the witness appeared in court, he exposed all the evidence and claims of the police. During the hearing, Additional District Judge Dinesh Tiwari acquitted the accused in the absence of evidence, declaring him innocent. The victim breathed a sigh of relief after getting justice after 16 years. Lawyer Neeraj Pathak, who is representing the victim, said he had said he was innocent from the start.

The case is from July 27, 2006. Three disbelievers had committed the crime in the house of Dr. PK Upadhyay, a resident of Pushpajanli Shastripuram Road shopping complex, Thana Sikandra. Shooting into his house and assaulting his wife. According to the police’s interpretation, Inspector Vinod Kumar was on patrol. He got information about three disbelievers entering the industrial area. The police brought Dr. PK Upadhyay with them and the perpetrators opened fire on the police team. In retaliation, he grabbed Ajay Sharma. A bicycle, a gun, a mobile and chilli powder were found in Ajay. A case of weapons law and murderous assault has been registered against Ajay on the complaint of the sub-inspector.

The witness rejected the police statement
Lawyer Neeraj Pathak, representing the victim, said that to show their good work, the police resolved the incident within 7-8 hours. He said all the evidence produced by the police was denied by the witness. Police had shown that the accused had recovered a motorcycle, gun, mobile phone, handgun and chilli powder, but when PK Upadhyay appeared in court, police denied all the evidence.

I kept saying for 16 years – I’m innocent
Ajay Sharma lived in Dayal Nagar, Agra. When the police caught him, he had to stay in jail for about two months. Lawyer Neeraj Pathak says Ajay Sharma was working as a labourer. Battling the conditions of poverty, he continued to come to court for 16 years for justice. Each time, he said he was innocent. When he got justice from the court, there was the joy of victory on his face. Ajay Sharma has now moved to Delhi with his family.
