According to the information, a case has been registered against a street vendor under Section 285 of the Indian Penal Code for creating obstruction and selling under the foot over bridge of New Delhi Railway Station. According to the FIR, the accused has been identified as Pankaj Kumar, a resident of Barh, Bihar.

The police mentioned in the FIR that the accused was selling tobacco and water on a cart near the main road, causing inconvenience to passers-by. When the police patrolling the area asked the accused to remove his cart, he ignored the officers.

New criminal laws will help prevent delay in justice

In fact, three new criminal laws have come into force across the country from Monday, which will bring sweeping changes to India’s criminal justice system and abolish colonial-era laws. The Indian Justice Code, the Indian Civil Protection Code and the Indian Evidence Act will replace the British-era Indian Penal Code, the Code of Criminal Procedure and the Indian Evidence Act respectively. These new criminal laws aim to prevent judicial delays and introduce strong use of information technology.

Delhi Police is fully prepared for the new laws: Chhaya Sharma

Delhi Police Special CP Chhaya Sharma said that three new criminal laws have come into force from today. FIRs will also start being registered under these laws from today. We started training on this subject from February 5 itself, we have explained very clearly the changes that have been made in the investigation.

Chhaya Sharma said that with these laws we are moving from punishment to justice. There is a lot of emphasis on digital evidence in this. This means that now the evidence will be recorded digitally and when it is recorded digitally, not much change can be made. Digital records will make it easier for the court to understand. He told that Delhi Police has also made an app. About 45000 people of Delhi Police are fully trained. We are fully prepared for this. We have prepared a pocket booklet which is divided into 4 parts and it includes IPC to BNS, new sections added in BNS, categories which now come under 7 years of punishment and a table. It includes sections necessary for everyday policing.

Old cases will be settled under IPC only

Special CP Chhaya Sharma said that the law does not work with retrospective effect. So old cases already registered will be dealt with under IPC and CrPC will be effective for those cases. However, when new cases are registered from today, July 1, sections of the Indian Justice Code (BNSS) will apply to them. Similarly, the process of investigation starting today will follow the Indian Civil Security Code (BNSS) and not the CrPC… Old cases will be dealt with under old sections – CrPC and IPC. New cases will be dealt with sections of the Indian Justice Code (BNS), Indian Civil Security Code (BNSS).
