An offender mends his ways

It proved to be a case of Reformative Justice theory of jurisprudence put into practice. Nagaraj (35), a lathe workshop owner, was found to be indulging in a drunken brawl in an eatery on Wednesday night. The police brought him to the station.He told the police that he has realised his mistake and requested them that he be let off.

The police told him about the ill-effects of alcohol and asked him to do a good act to repent the misdeed. Mr. Nagaraj said he would donate Rs. 5,000 to the Sri Ramakrishna Institute of Oncology and Research at the Sri Ramakrishna Hospital in the city. The institute had recently launched a T-shirt carrying the slogan “Helping hands are better than the Praying lips.”

The next day he went to the institute and donated the promised amount.

Vetriselvan, Inspector of Singnallur Police Station said that when the offender was willing to mend his ways in a minor offence, he could be given an opportunity to reform. Above all there was no pressing complaints against him. In such cases, measures such as these rather than punishment could reform a person and make him contribute for the good of society.
