    Recently in the parliament, a member had addressed "Tadipaar or fugitive" and it was a shock for many to hear such a word being called to a person holding a higher post or position.

  • The fugitive offender is an individual against whom an arrest warrant is issued because of the following crimes.
    (i) Left India so as to avoid criminal prosecution,
    (ii) Refuses to return to India from a foreign country when he has to face criminal prosecution.

    Kingfisher Airlines CMD Vijay Vittal Mallya is a notorious person and he is a good example for this class of offenders.

    The court will have the authority to conduct ex-parte proceedings against a company or any individual declared to be a fugitive. The individual or company will be in an adverse position. They are barred from defending or maintaining any civil claim

    Once the case is cleared and the person is penalized and the punishment is awarded and completed the punishment he will be like any other normal person.

  • Tadipaar is a person who is given the tadipaar punishment. It is a restrainmnt order to an accused ordering him not to enter the geographical limits of a city or town where he ordinarily resides and operates. The restrainment may be for a certain period or more as per the ofence and his crime history.
    Usually the Tadipaar order is given when the aw enforcing authority has reasonable and justifiable reason to fear that this person's presence inthe place wil jeopardise smooth life of the people and maycause or encourage unrest.
    It is atualling expelling a miscreant or goonda or rowdy from a city, town or district. The word Tadipaar has equivalent words inother state languages also as per the lwas operating there.
    Sometimes people also use the word Tadipaar for one who has escaped law by fleeingfrom a place.

  • The term fugitive is used for some offenders and criminals as well as economic offenders who escape the clutches of law in our country. This is used in a derogatory way and taken as a sign of disrespect to them which of course they truly deserve. The point wise answers to the question are as below -

    i) A fugitive is a person who is fleeing from the law to avoid arrest or conviction and even trying to take shelter in some other county. Even a person escaped from jail and hiding in the country or outside is a fugitive.

    ii) Any person who is escaping the Indian law and hiding deserves the fugitive sentence as decided by the court of law as per the severity of his crime a associated offences.

    iii) Fugitive may be a person escaped from the clutches of law or an fugitive economic offender. In both the cases Govt would revoke his arrest either in inland mode or through the international treaties in this respect.

    iv) There are many who have been sentenced but as their bringing back to India is a complicated procedure some of them are still enjoying their freedom in other countries.

    v) A fugitive has to undergo the sentence as per the law and severity of the offence and economic offenders have to pay the requisite funds back to the banks along with the stipulated interest and then only their jail term would be minimised and they can be out of it in less time and then they are free to lead a normal life. A fugitive is just like another criminal, only thing is his offence increases due to his escaping tendencies deceiving the judiciary and law authorities.

    Knowledge is power.

  • Escaping the provision of law by being an offender either in terms of criminal or economic and hiding himself from the clutches of law is to be termed as a fugitive or a tadipaar. This is of course a derogatory remark and hurling such remarks at him may irritate the offender but despite this they deserve to categorised as offenders.
    Here is the point wise explanation of each query-
    1) A fugitive is a person violating the norms of arrest and taking shelter in some other country. He may be one of the culprits escaped from the jail and lives in a remote place hiding his identity including taking shelter in a foreign country some times.
    2) Any violation relating to Indian Law where he hides himself deserves the fugitive punishment as decided by the court and the punishment may be awarded fitting in his case.
    3) A tadipaar would always resort to an unfair rout so that he may not be caught violating the clutches of law. The government has to make a concerted effort so as to negotiate dialogue to surrender such offenders where he is residing.
    4) Many offenders have been awarded punishment suitably violating the economic law and for their criminality but later such a subject has disappeared and have taken shelter in a foreign country or absconding in a remote place within his country. To bring back the offenders from the foreign country involves a cumbersome procedure consuming enormous time to bring them back. However, there should be consistent efforts in this regard.
    5) If a fugitive takes up the responsibility in paying the due outstanding against him from a bank or presenting himself in the court of law for his criminal case, chances are that the duration of the case can be minimised or even the charges can be waived in case of economic offence. Surrendering before law can ultimately provide certain reliefs and taking appropriate steps by the fugitive can dilute the charges to a significant extent.
