New Delhi: The Hon’ble Supreme Court of India has issued Rule and admitted the petition filed by Snehil Dhall, a Criminologist by profession for seeking directions to the Central, State and Union Territory Governments to implement Transnational Organised Crime Resolutions of the United Nations. As per the petition, every Home Ministry of State & UT is suppose to have a dedicated department to tackle Money Laundering, Arms Trafficking and Women & Child Human Trafficking in particular. A three- Judge bench of the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India, headed by Hon’ble the Chief Justice of India, Hon’ble Mr. Justice S.A. Bobde issued Rule and admitted the petition filed through the Petitioner, Snehil Dhall’s Advocate, Mareesh Pravir Sahay. The Advocate submitted that the government had failed to implement the United Nations Transnational Organized Crime recommendation signed in the year 2011 and ratified by Parliament in 2013 in its true letter and spirit. The petition further stated that as per the correspondence between Central Home Ministry and Criminologist Snehil Dhall the Nodal Department has been CBI but they failed to recognize the implementation responsibility and infact they denied having any knowledge even of the issue at hand.


It has been submitted by Mr. Dhall that Central Home Ministry had sent a letter to every Home Ministry of State & UT Government but only 12 of them acknowledged of receiving the same. Even these 12 governments failed to form the Organised Crime Department due to which Criminologist Snehil Dhall filed the said petition. Now, with the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India having issued Rule and admitted the petition,  the 47 Respondents i.e. Central Government Ministries, States & U.T. Governments will file their written replies to the petition. On the other hand, Petitioner’s Advocate added “The working structure of CAA, NPR & NRC would also need the legal machinery support of other Nations and that can be utilized mainly through UNTOC framework which Mr. Dhall has demanded in letter and spirit.”


In the petition, the Petitioner had claimed that organised crime aren’t evaluated using current laws and stated few reference like Fake Interpol, Money Laundering techniques by International NGOs, Terrorist-turned-Politicians, Crime by Religious Gurus, Banking and property frauds, Virtual Government & Terrorist Groups which doesn’t fall under Cyber Crime laws and other crimes. Furthermore, the country is burdened by various other organised crimes that need to be evaluated with technicalities of crimes. “The world is observing crimes which no one has even heard of and the fundamental rule of ‘No Law No Punishment’ is very well used by the Organised Crime masterminds” says the Petitioner, Criminologist Snehil Dhall who is also the founder of Crimeophobia, a criminology based Transnational firm.
