The Punjab government has constituted special sessions courts in each district for the trial of offences under the National Investigation Agency Act, 2008.

Stating this here, an official spokesperson of the home affairs and justice department of the Punjab government said the courts of the sessions judge and the first additional sessions judge had been constituted with the concurrence of the Punjab and Haryana high court.

He said these courts, constituted in each district, heard the trials of such offences as are specified under the schedule of the National Investigation Agency Act (Central Act No 34 of 2008). These courts would hear only those cases which fall under their respective jurisdiction.

New Delhi, 1984. New York, 2014.

In my parent’s bedroom is a framed photo that seems a bit out of place. The small image has an aged yellow tint and displays my father at the young age of 24, standing proudly atop the GB Pant Hospital in New Delhi, India. He looks just as I do now. Tall, skinny, his not-yet full beard kept neatly on the sides of his jaw as he sports a clean pair of glasses and a neat turban matching his shirt. That year (1984), my father was in his medical residency pursuing a specialty in anesthesiology. His eyes shine of dreams of the success that would come from his hard work in the future. However, what could not be captured in the photograph is what my father had seen in that year, 1984. Writes Manmeet Singh Gujral
