In a residential colony under GHMC limits (Suryanagar colony, Chinthal, Quthbullapur Mandal, GHMC Quthbullapur), A private school operator, who does not have a school ground had leased out an empty plot to use for ground, but has since bought it and is now constructing a building. We have huge water scarcity, and he has dug up two borewells in this plot measuring 425 sq. yards. The colony is closed from three sides and this would cause huge traffic issues, nuisance and water problems. 1.Do we have a legal basis to oppose the construction of a school building in residential area. 2. How do I go about to stop the construction? Can I go to court? Should I file a PIL or a writ petition for the same? 3. What documents would I need to produce from the authorities for filing a case and on what grounds would it be admissible?

I am a 37 year old bachelor, an engineer by qualification and an entrepreneur. My father brought me up violently. For no apparent reason he would thrash me with wooden rod. As a child I was helpless and frustrated. He continued the same in my adulthood as well. After one such incident, at the age of 32, I decided I had it enough, and went to the police to demand an action against him. The police reprimanded and let him off. The family i.e. my father, mother, elder brother and sister in law got together and visited a psychiatrist, who to the utter horror, never even saw me once and started prescribing anti-psychotic medicines to be added to the unsuspecting food I was supposed to have (Surreptitious medication). The man who never smoked or drank in life, a staunch believer in Ayurveda, was subjected to prescription drugs for a period of 2.5 years that turned him into vegetative state. Psychosis is a mental condition in which delusions (unreal beliefs) and hallucinations (seeing or hearing people not actually present) occur. I had no history of the same. The doctor wanted to make business of the visiting family and took my life for a ride for a mere Rs 1000 that the doctor would make from the family's each visit. I got to know about the misadventure only when one of my friends who used to visit my place and have food with me was told not to have food from a particular bowl the medicine was added to. When the family didn't approve of the friendship, she spilled the beans to me. I immediately complained to the police. The documents police received said that the misadventure was on since last 2.5 years. The police was bribed to suppress the complaint. The investigating constable later even destroyed the papers pertaining it. I swallowed the bitter pill and gave my family a 10 month time frame to compensate me. They didn't and were unrepentant. After the 10 month period, I approached the Commissioner of police to restart the investigation. The day my medical began, I was kidnapped at the behest of my family. 5 people barged into my room, pinned me down on the bed and put 6 injections in my veins. All this 1.5 hours of struggle, I believed I was being murdered as they did not tell me the purpose of their visit. One of my fingers was deformed in the action. They were from rehab for mental patients. I was forcibly taken there. During my stay there, I was made into believing that I had delusions (comically the delusion they say is that I feel my family does not care about me, as if there was any less evidence of the same) and was forced to take brain numbing medicines (which I tricked them into taking but spit it out in secrecy) which would have rendered a person in vegetative state, just good enough for living. The dangerous anti-psychotic drugs are fraught with side effects that range from weight gain, lethargy and tremors in physical body to diabetes, sexual dysfunction, dementia and cardiac arrest. In fact anti-psychotic medication causes psychosis in normal people. Their clinical observation clearly talked about the absence of psychosis in me but milking the patient was way ahead in their agenda than my life. In sheer disregard of human rights, the doctor not just forced medicines down his patient’s throat, but also curtailed all policing and legal aid to the patients. With 20 feet high fences of barbed wire throughout the periphery, intimidating bouncers on the payroll, no access to phone or internet, the rehab is nothing short of a private jail. Incidentally, the internet is full of incidents calling this psychiatrist a fraud. He is guilty of admitting patients without a sufficient cause. Disgruntled family members seem to be using the facility as a detention centre sums up the top complaint. After spending 100 days there, when they could not make me a worthless piece of life, they declared they are not going to leave me. I jumped 2 floors to escape and tell the world my sordid saga. When I came back and complained to the DCP, I got to know that the police permission which was a mandatory action in the pick-up of a patient against his will, was taken a day after the incident, hence conforming to a kidnap. This also uncovers the family's/doctors intentions. I am currently staying away from my family. The police investigation in the matter is on. I seek legal opinion on - They have misused the right as a blood relation to get me admitted to a mental hospital. I need judicial remedy, if any, so that they cant misuse the blood relation tag again. (Defensive) - Till the time the police investigation completes and a case is filed, is there any legal offensive I need to launch against the doctors and family. (Offensive) - How can I generate support for my cause as I am alone in my fight for justice?

Booked by traffic police

Day before yesterday at 5 p.m., I was booked by a traffic sergeant in Kolkata for violating a one-way restriction. I had indeed overlooked the road sign by mistake. He wrote fine of Rs. 2000/- under Section 115/194 on a form that lists MVA, 1988, WBMVR, 1989 & CMVR, 1989. Then he gave me a...

Day before yesterday at 5 p.m., I was booked by a traffic sergeant in Kolkata for violating a one-way restriction. I had indeed overlooked the road sign by mistake. He wrote fine of Rs. 2000/- under Section 115/194 on a form that lists MVA, 1988, WBMVR, 1989 & CMVR, 1989. Then he gave me a copy of the filled-in form and confiscated my driving licence. Now it seems Sections 115 and 194 pertain not to traffic violations but quite different things in both WBMVR, 1989 (see e.g. https://wbxpress.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/WB-MOTOR-VEHICLE-RULES-1989.pdf) and CMVR, 1989 (see e.g. http://www.tn.gov.in/sta/Cmvr1989.pdf). Thus it appears that only MVA, 1988 might apply. But as per the link http://www.indiandrivingschools.com/traffic-offences-and-penalties.php given in the blog post http://lawfarm.in/blogs/fines-and-penalties-for-traffic-violations-in-india dealing with traffic violations on your site, as also several other websites, even in MVA, 1988 it is not Sections 115/194 that apply for violations of one-way restrictions but Section 177 and the fine is just Rs. 100/-. Could you please advise what my course of action should be? Thanking in anticipation, Arindam Sengupta Kolkata
