Petition for Justice

Petitioning New Delhi, India President of India and 1 other
Justice for Dr Mitu Khurana
Against Gendercide

India

Dr Mitu Khurana is a doctor. Her parents are also doctors and she comes from a respected, educated family. Dr Mitu Khurana has been fighting against the discrimination towards her daughters and harassment towards her by her in laws. Dr Mitu Khurana is perhaps the first woman in India to have filed a complaint under P.N.D.T Act against Her husband, in-laws and others who deceived her into the sex determination test.

Dr Mitu Khurana has been fighting for 8 years now. When Dr Mitu Khurana started her fight, perhaps she thought that there are women friendly laws, and women friendly courts… that our country and judiciary is doing so much to ensure a just society for the discriminated half of the society. Her struggle has been documented by various national and international media and is very much in public domain. Dr Mitu Khurana`s story coverage in media encouraged and will continue to encourage other women to come forward and say no to female feticide and save their daughters.

The amount of evidence which Dr Mitu Khurana had gathered may not be available to many other women who may try to take up the fight…. And still the courts deciding against her based on technical grounds will discourage any woman from coming forward.
The clinic in which sex determination was done belongs to a influential person, who stated in his petition u/s 482 for quashing of the summoning orders that he is the consultant radiologist to the president of India. Hon’ble Supreme court and Delhi High Court are on his panel, he was also the president of Indian Radiological association , He is recipient of the Padam Sri and many more pages of self praise. This is in addition to his own admission in High court that

1. He was running a USG center without registration.
2. A Doctor working in his center did the foetal USG on Dr Mitu, which was never asked for by the gynecologist.

Moreover from records it is confirmed that no consent was taken from her and the mandatory records were neither maintained nor sent to the appropriate authority as required under P.N.D.T Act.

However shockingly when the judgment from high Court came we were shocked to see that

1. All the facts of the case were taken as it is from the petition of the accused persons without even considering any of the submissions given in the reply, written arguments of the Advocate and without even going through the documentary evidences attached.
2. The facts stated in the judgment were factually wrong at many places.
3. The complaint was dismissed on the basis of a 12 day delay in filing the complaint to appropriate authority. The Judge did not even go through Her complaint filed much before the expiry of the limitation period to various authorities including the NCW, DCW, Prime Minister and President of India etc.

Dr Mitu still kept hope and filed a SLP in the Supreme Court. Initially the matter was listed for 16th September 2016 in Court No 6 before Hon’ble Mr. Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Hon’ble Mr. Justice Prafulla C. Pant. However when the final list came up on 15th September 2016, we were shocked to see that the case had been transferred to Court No.9 before Hon’ble Mr. Justice Pinaki Chandra Ghose and Hon’ble Mr. Justice Amitava Roy. In Supreme Court, the SLP was dismissed with one line order – “UPON hearing the counsel the Court made the following ORDER The Special Leave Petitions are dismissed.”

The SLP was dismissed within 5 minutes, without even letting her advocate speak 5 sentences.

Mitu Khurana fought for over 8 years only to set up a good precedence for any mother fighting against female feticide.
All Petitions, Replies, and other documents are uploaded here.
High Court
1) High Court Petition Dr Harsh Mahajan Vs state of NCT of Delhi
2) https://savedaughters11.wordpress.com/2016/05/05/dr-niten-seth-vs-state-of-nct-of-delhi-others/
3) https://savedaughters11.wordpress.com/2016/05/04/annexures/

Supreme Court
1) SLP- https://savedaughters11.wordpress.com/2016/09/19/supreme-court-appeal/
2) All Annexure for Supreme Court- https://savedaughters11.wordpress.com/2016/09/20/supreme-court-annexures-2/

The Judiciary has failed not only her and her daughters, but all the born and yet to be born daughters of this country. The history of this country will surely document her fight as the first mother to speak up and take legal action against Doctor, Husband and in laws for forcing her to undergo sex selective abortion. All the judgments and documents which are in Public domain will surely show how the Judiciary let down the daughters of this country and discouraged any mother from coming forward and fighting against female feticide.

This petition will be delivered to:
New Delhi, India
President of India
Supreme Court of India
Chief Justice of India

Divya Balaji CT United States 31/10/2016 I have seen Dr. Mitu fight for justice and many of our hands have been tied as we have reposed our faith in this nations criminal justice system. I hope the Hon. President does consider Dr. Month’s genuine plea and her fight for ensuring that her daughter’s are protected and the perpetrators brought to Justice. Miscreant but powerful elements of the medical profession cannot be allowed to wreak havoc with such impunity, on the long-fought battles of women, to ensure the right to be born. I hope they are brought to book.

Nimesh Khaitan India 01/11/2016 More often than not SLPs are dismissed in SCI by Hon’ble Judges with one word “dismissed” without going through the facts of the case and without perusing/discussing the case which results in miscarriage of justice.
I am myself a witness to such a case where the facts apparent/admitted on the records of the case were also not perused by SCI.

turab kazmi India 02/11/2016 The facts pertaining to the case at hand clarifies that there has been a great mishandling and the justice has not been provided to Dr.  Mitu Khurana.  As a law student,  it is my humble submission that we as budding lawyers have infallible trust on the judiciary and the impartialness of each and every judicial officer of the country.  But,  the perusal of the case at hand signifies the other side of the story,  which nobody in this profession or as a common man,  would like to ever know or go through.  With utmost respect,  i would request to look into the matter in a expeditiously.
Madhu Nangia India 02/11/2016 We have been following the case closely. The outcome of this case will decide weather more women come out against this grave injustice. We request the chief justice to urgently look into the case and give justice to Dr Mitu.
Beverly Hill TX United States 02/11/2016 I founded a nonprofit called the Gendercide Awareness Project, gendap.org, to raise awareness and action against gendercide (femicide). We lose 3.5 million females annually due to severe discrimination against women. Half of these deaths occur before birth through sex selective abortion. I call upon the President of India and the Supreme Court of India to uphold the laws of India, which are routinely flouted, in this prominent case. Year after year, India runs campaigns like Beti Bachao Beti Padhao, none of which will work if the courts don’t uphold the law. Shame on India if this case is tossed about in the courts until the statute of limitations takes effect. The world is watching!
