In fact, the judge who sentenced the death sentence to the perpetrator makes a “death warrant” in the court. The “Haasiya” present around that paper or you can say that all four corners are black-colored.
From jail, court, court, city-town to village-country, anyone can hear “black warrant” and “death warrant”. Especially on those occasions, whenever someone is sentenced to court, a “death” means “hanging”. Let’s know what the hell are these two warrants? Black and Death are two different names of the same warrant, or the same name as both warrants, or the Majmoon related to the same subject is within it. How are both warrants made? Who issues these warrants and when? What is the significance of these warrants in the world of law and crime? Can a criminal be hanged in the well of hanging without these warrants even without getting the death penalty?
Actually, black warrant and death warrant are not new names in the court world or the common man’s world. Most of the people may not know the inside talk about these two warrants, but as soon as the name of both of them is in the ear, everyone understands that the link of these warrants is from someone’s hanging. The difference between these two warrants, whether inside or outside, is not known to 60 to 70 percent of the people. Actually, first it should be clear that black warrant and death warrant are two separate legal documents. Or the same document has two different names. But work, importance and meaning are the same.
Relation of “death warrant” and “black warrant”
So understand that black warrant and death warrant are two different names of the same document. Importance and work are the same. The power of both is also same. That means remove from the mind that black warrant is different and death warrant is different. In common language, it is called good death and black warrant. But in legal language it is actually a “death warrant”. In such a situation, the question arises that if the two are not separate. Or the importance and work of both are not different, so why name it? Actually, black warrant is not a separate death or special death decree or legal document at all. Yes, it is true that if someone says black warrant then it is also not unreasonable.
Death warrant can be called black warrant. First, the black warrant (death warrant) is the final decree to hang a living person (a convicted criminal). That is, the decree to take the life of a person, which has been cleared in the Indian law, after which the clear path has been cleared for hanging the perpetrator. That is why in the language of common language it is called “Black Warrant”. Not only you and me. From jail officers to judges and lawyers also call it the same.
“Black warrant” became a decree of such death
There is also a very strong or accurate reason to call this death decree a “black warrant”. In fact, the judge who sentenced the death sentence to the perpetrator makes a “death warrant” in the court. The “hares” present around that paper or you can say that all four corners are black-colored. Later, due to that black-hood on the paper to be written a Death Warrant, the Death Warrant itself was colloquially called a Black Warrant in the courts. Hence, death warrants have also been called “black warrants” for the past several decades.
In other words, there is no difference between black and death warrant. Except a black death warrant will not be wrong even if there are black-hoods all around. It is clear that death and black warrant are two names of the same document. Both have the same power-importance. Now the question comes in the mind that how is there a death or black warrant? How is it made? Because of the death decree, the language of “death-warrant” looks and looks different from other legal documents. Is it possible to identify the death warrant separately? Death warrants are written on a special type of paper. On that paper, the color of just the margins (the four corners of the paper and the space left in the side) is definitely black. After all this information, there is bound to be a question in the mind that who writes the end of the death-black warrant and what is the fun?
Time changed the look of “Death Warrant”
The death warrant is always written by the judge who sentenced him (the trial court, where he is convicted as a criminal, is the first person to be convicted). Till many years ago, judges used to write this decree i.e. death warrant in their pen (hand writing). The modus operandi of day-to-day proceedings of the courts has also changed with modern technology and increasing speed. So now a matter is already typed (on death or black warrant) by default. Under him, the sentencing judge signs his signature. Also, the date of the seal of the concerned judge is put on one side of the death warrant.
When it comes to the issue of death and black warrants, the question of the time-to-date at the time of issuing it is bound to come in mind. Actually, the trial court (session court) first declares the accused as a criminal. Then the convict is sentenced. If the punishment is to be hanged, then this matter is also taken to the High Court, Supreme Court, Governor, President’s body, because every attempt of a death sentence perpetrator makes any punishment for any excuse from anywhere. Could translate into life imprisonment. This has happened in many cases over the years. That means the punishment-a-death of the culprits sentenced to death was turned into life imprisonment. But this last authority only exists with the President of India.
Final investigation before “death warrant”
When the President of India rejects the mercy petition, then the jail in which the convict sentenced to death has been kept closed, the jail superintendent of that jail after taking written information about the mercy petition rejected from the trial court i.e. By declaring the accused as a criminal, the first punishment-a-death of the accused is there. The jail’s jailer requests the trial court in writing that the mercy petition of the convicted felon from your court has been dismissed from the President. So to hang the noose, the relevant court should issue a “death warrant” of the perpetrator.
On that application from the jail superintendent, the court concerned finds out from his level that, has the mercy petition of the criminal been dismissed from all places? Also, the order of dismissal of all mercy petitions brings “ON RECORD” to the trial court judge (the judge who sentenced the death sentence). He then issues the “death warrant” (black warrant) of the perpetrator. This death warrant is in a sealed envelope. The special communicator takes this decree of death to the prison concerned in a very secretive manner, so that no one is aware of the issuance of death warrant.
Why another prisoner gets “death warrant”
Now another important thing is that it is not necessary that the hanging house is present in the jail where the convict is kept. In such a situation, the Superintendent of the same jail informs the trial court about the dismissal of all mercy petitions, where the prisoner is imprisoned. But when the sentencing judge will issue the death warrant of the convict, then that death warrant will be issued in the name of the superintendent of the jail, in which the jail will have a hanging house. That is, the jail where the convict is to be hanged.
