Clueless

HT reports:

A ‘high profile’ accused who simply refuses to cooperate with them, evidence which exists below their nose(s) but isn’t recovered in time and a rapidly increasing number of untraceable ‘suspects’ have emerged as the chief features of the Delhi Police’s investigations into Geetika Sharma’s suicide.

TOI adds:

Police plan to put former Haryana minister Gopal Kanda through a brain mapping test to get clues about the nature of his relationship with former employee Geetika Sharma, who committed suicide earlier this month and held him responsible for her death.

The move comes in the wake of Kanda not having revealed much in his two days of police custody. Cops, however, would need Kanda’s permission for conducting the brain mapping test and he is unlikely to agree. The results of such a test are not admissible in court.

The press often alerts us to cases where the police is afraid to take on politically connected people. But it seems also that they are unable to build up a case unless the accused confesses. In most cases this is accomplished through torture. In high-profile cases where this method is ruled out, the police tries to resort to the completely misnamed technique called “brain mapping”.

In order to be effective the police forces have to start hiring and empowering people who can think. That might be as unacceptable to the parliament as a good and solid Lokpal law.
