GOOD SAMARITAN:

Constable Dharmvir found the passenger’s bag with cash and valuables

at a scanner in Nizamuddin station

 

       New Delhi:Had it not been for an alert cop, a 42-year-old man would have never got back his savings and valuables which he had lost at Nizamuddin station. Constable Dharmvir not only found the bag at a scanner machine but also returned it intact to the owner. 

    Shailendra Dhar, a resident of Mayur Vihar, approached the police on Friday evening after losing his bag containing around Rs 5 lakh, electronic gadgets like his iPad and camera, and his medicines for his spinal problem. A senior media professional, he was going to catch Chhattisgarh Sampark Kranti Express for his hometown Bilaspur.

       “A porter was carrying most of the baggage while I had this bag and my tripod. When we crossed the scanner around 5pm and went a little ahead towards the platform, I noticed that my shoulder bag was missing. I panicked and checked everywhere but could not find it,” Dhar said.
He approached police at Nizamuddin station. Additional DCP Sanjay Bhatia was informed and police started looking for the bag. “Its details were flashed at all exit and entry points and all points of suspicion were searched ,” Ravindra Yadav, additional CP, crime and railways, said.

       A team also began to scan the CCTV footage from cameras installed in and around the station. “On the footage at the X-ray scanner installed towards the Sarai Kale Khan side, we spotted Dhar entering with the bag on his shoulder but the exit camera footage showed him without the bag. This made it clear that he forgot the bag at the scanner in a hurry,” said Bhatia.

      Meanwhile, Dharmvir located Dhar around 8pm from the information flashed across the station.

     “At one point I lost hope that I will get the bag back but the cop showed immense sense of duty and perseverance in carrying out his duty. He has set an example for his colleagues and instances like these restore our trust in our police force which is often regarded as callous and corrupt,” Dhar said.

       Dharmvir will be rewarded for his honesty and setting an example for his colleagues.

CBI SP Vivek Dutt Being Framed?


     As per news agency report an officer of the CBI Mr Vivek Dutt, has been arrested along with another inspector for ‘ taking bribe of Rs 7 lakh for settling a land dispute’ . The CBI has sought the removal of the officer from the extremely sensitive Coal Gate case that he is investigating.

      The officer has denied the charge, and his counsel has told the court ‘ that his client is being targeted and nothing has been recovered from his possession by the agency.

    “He is investigating an important case under the supervision of the Supreme Court and somebody wants him not to be the part of the probe team… This is simply a device to divert the attention that the investigation in the coal scam is vitiated and the officer is corrupt,”

      The history of the Coalgate report and the actions to change it clearly point the needle of suspicion to the Prime Minister himself . The highly sensitive case case has already claimed the the Law minister Ashwini Kumar , Additional Solicitor General Harin P. Raval , and thrown up a great deal of muck.

      Improper actions of the Attorney General G E Vanahvati , Babus from the PM’s secretariat and coal ministry and the arrogance and total disregard for norms of the govt in interfering with the report has left all right thinking Indians shocked. The abject condition of the ‘premiere investigating agency’ was an open secret all along, and so its abysmal self debasing conduct and tattered reputation is no surprise to anyone..

     What however is intriguing is the timing of the arrest of its senior officer Mr Dutt by the CBI and the rush to the Supreme Court to remove Mr Dutt from the Coal Gate investigations.

      The following scenarios come to mind.

                • The officer took a bribe to settle a case and the CBI has taken correct action.
   

• The officer has been taking bribes earlier also , but the CBI found his                           report on the Coalgate unhelpful to the government and wanted him shunted out. Since the Supreme court had prohibited the govt from interfering with the investigating officers this was the only option available ; to tarnish his reputation, and remove him.
     

         • The officer has impeachable integrity, so a case has been cooked up to tarnish his reputation and remove him.

     In the sorry state of affairs that exists today, official actions and statements are liable to be doubted at every step. The fact that the governments of the day have been known to foist cases on innocent persons and tarnish their reputation is well known.

      Vineet Narain who broke the Hawala Case, was hounded for years, Tehelka ‘s Editor and staff have faced innumerable raids and harassment, Officers like Khemka of Haryana and a host of others who have disclosed the ill gotten wealth of politicians have had to pay heavily for their sincerity and devotion to probity.

       So is it not possible that Mr Vivek Dutt is being framed?

Superintendent of Police Vivek Dutt, along with Inspector Rajesh Karnatak and two others, was arrested by the internal vigilance unit of the CBI from Lodhi Colony area in south Delhi. Notably, Dutt was said to be an investigating officer in the coal scam.

“Dutt was taking bribe of Rs 7 lakh for settling down a land dispute related to the Delhi Police. He was accompanied by the inspector,” an agency official told a news agency.

“We had information about the dealing and we continued to maintain surveillance on them. After monitoring them for pretty long, today (Friday) they were arrested for taking the bribe”, CBI director Ranjit Sinha said.

CBI’s coalgate investigator arrested for taking bribe

In another embarrassment to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), two of its officers – Superintendent of Police Vivek Dutt, also the investigating officer in the coal block allocation scam, and Inspector Rajesh Karnatak – were arrested on Friday for accepting a bribe of Rs 7 lakh from a person. CBI’s internal vigilance department did the arrests. Sources said Dutt was trying to use his influence to help a person settle a case in connection with a land dispute.

CBI is under the scanner of the Supreme Court for sharing its coal allocation probe report with the former law minister, Ashwani Kumar, and two joint secretary-level officers, of the coal ministry and the prime minister’s office. The Supreme Court had rapped the CBI for being a “caged parrot speaking in its master’s voice.”

The latest development comes after the formation of a Group of Ministers to prepare a draft law to insulate CBI from external influence.

Further investigations are on.

Another Honest Man : This Species Still Survives!


Guj auto driver Raju Bharwad returns Rupees 1.90 crores cheque wrongly issued to him

Bharat Yagnik TNN

Ahmedabad: An Ahmedabad autorickshaw driver has returned a Rs 1.90 crore cheque issued in his name in lieu of three bigha of land acquired for Tata’s Nano plant in Sanand.
Raju Bharwad could have pocketed the sum, but gave an undertaking that he no longer owned the owner the land. He ensured that the names of the new owners are entered in the official records.
Raju’s family owned 10 bigha land in Sanand. Thirty years ago, his grandfather sold three bigha for around Rs 5 lakh on which 40-odd families built small tenements. Later, the Nano plant was to come up in the area and land prices skyrocketed. The Gujarat Industrial Development Corporation (GIDC) acquired land for it at Rs 28 lakh a bigha and started paying farmers in whose names the plots were registered.
Since the new owners had failed to register their names, records still listed Raju and his mother, Baluben, as owners.
“Honesty is one thing my parents taught me. I could not have used money acquired through dishonest means for my family,” says Raju, who lives in a small tworoom house with his wife, three kids and mother.
His family too urged him to take the right step. “I may earn Rs 6,000 per month, but live a life of dignity. I own four bighas, which should take care of my family’s future needs,” he adds.

Pakistan Elections 2013: Colorful with Caste Calculations and Lunatic Fringe


                                   

Elections in the sub continent are always colorful. In Pakistan of 2013 it is  more so with the people full of life if not joy at the never before prospect of voting in an election not distorted by the ISI and the Army. And a civilian government which has run a full term of 5 years, never before has this happened.

      Even if the Army is not directly interfering this time its presence will be felt in every booth. Gen Kayani has offered ‘protection’ by the army of every booth.

      Baddies this time are the Taliban and other fanatic organisations who have openly declared that they will adopt any means to ensure that the elections are not held. Repeated bomb blasts at election meetings , murders and kidnapping of candidates indicate that they have  the capacity to create a great deal of fear among the candidates and the public.

        The latest is the abduction of Haider Ali Gilani, son of former PM Yousuf Raza Gilani in his home constituency in the outskirts of Multan. The abduction was not a an amateur or ham handed affair, clearly planned and organised by professional terrorists.

       Nawaz Sharif is expected to reap the maximum number of seats, however PML -S will not have a clear majority. Najam Sethi the caretaker in Punjab has moved out a great many beauracrats who would have helped Sharif to influence the voting pattern.

      PPP is on the back foot this time. With many allegations of corruption and mis-governance. Death threats forced Bilawal to opt out. Candidates are afraid to campaign freely.

              

IMRAN KHAN while he may have won the world cup in cricket for Pakistan has no real experience  of Pakistani politics. How far his image of a honest person boosted by his recent hospitalization due to an injury received while campaigning will bring in votes is yet to be seen.
