Andher Nagari : U P


Incidents like these are daily occurances. Culprits will be out in a couple of days on bail. Family of the murdered girl will be pressurised , shamed amd forced to move out.

Police will be bribed to go slow and soft on the criminals.

If at all,  some token punishment may be awarded to the arsonists. No deterrence to criminals in the society.

Meerut girl set on fire by stalkers dies

Meerut:

Over a fortnight after six youths barged into a teenager’s house in Meerut’s Sardhana town and set her on fire after she refused to speak to one of them over phone, the 14-year-old girl succumbed to her injuries at a hospital in Delhi on Tuesday.

On August 17, the stalkers had poured kerosene on the girl and set her on fire. With over 70% burn injuries, she was referred to Safdarjung Hospital.

There was palpable tension in the air of Sardhana as the news of her death arrived. Heavy police forces were deployed both at the burning ghat and outside the houses of the accused.

According to the complaint filed by the girl’s family, she was being harassed by the youths. They used to follow her daily on the way to tuition classes. On August 17, one of them allegedly gave her a mobile phone, saying that he would call her. The girl, however, told her parents about it and the youth was scolded when he called. While five were arrested by the Meerut police, one of the accused surrendered in a court on petty charges of illicit liquor. TNN

Mid-air poop order has made us a laughing stock: DGCA to NGT

New Delhi:

Days after the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) issued a circular stating that dumping excreta from a flying airplane would attract a fine of Rs 50,000, the aviation regulator on Tuesday told the National Green Tribunal (NGT) that it was impossible to dump human waste midair from aircraft toilets.

The DGCA told a bench headed by NGT chairperson Justice Adarsh Kumar Goel that it has become a “laughing stock” due to this order and sought a stay and review of its order directing the aviation regulator to issue a circular to all airlines operating at the Indira Gandhi International (IGI) airport.

The aviation regulator informed the bench, also comprising Justice Jawad Rahim, that there is a designated place for emptying the waste tank and it cannot open it mid-air.

The bench, however, refused to stay its order and said it would consider the matter on the next date of hearing. PTI

Rampant Crime Uttar Pradesh


Can things ever change  in UP? Are people destined to live for ever in a lawless state? How can loot and rape of its citizens happen regularly as daily occurrences?

Clearly the criminal justice system has broken down completely in Uttar Pradesh. Police are completely ineffective. Politicians have rendered the police ineffective. Judiciary has failed to deliver justice to victims. Criminals roam Scot free while innocents are harassed.

Bulandshahr horror: Another rape at same spot just 12 days ago
 (Bulandshahr):
.     This is not the first time such a case has happened here, say residents of Dostpur village where a gang of robbers raped a 35-year-old Noida woman and her teenage daughter after waylaying their car on Friday . According to the villagers, just 12 days ago a few men had “brought a woman in a tempo and gang-raped her late into the night“.

Crime has become rampant in this area as it is deserted with no street lights or police picket, locals say. Devraj Thakur, former pradhan of the village, told TOI on Monday , “We got the news and immediately reached the spot after which the men fled. The woman was distraught, dishevelled. We stopped a police vehicle passing by and handed over to them a mobile phone and some clothes that the men had left behind. The police pocketed the phone and left. They later told the woman to come to the police station. We don’t know what happened to her after that.She was in a bad shape and needed help from the police.“

Govindpal Singh, another village elder, said, “Rapes happen here every few months but everyone is not able to muster the courage to file a report with the police.Even police don’t file cases even as the dangerous stretch has become a safe haven for criminals who often target travellers here.Had the police been vigilant in its patrol, the crime could have been averted.“

Kuldeep Sharma, another resident of the village, added, “All this started after the highway came into existence 18 months ago. Rapes occur occasionally but incidents of loot and dacoity are becoming commonplace here.“

DIG (Meerut range) Lakshmi Singh, however, brushed aside these claims.“This is at best the rumour mill at work. We do admit there have been a few lapses. We are doing everything in our means to bring the culprits to justice.More than half a dozen cops have already been suspended. We want to send out a strong signal not only to erring cops but also to criminals that no one will be spared.“

Police sources told TOI that “two similar incidents“ had occurred in the district on May 7 and May 12 this year.The same modus operandi was used -something was thrown at the vehicle to stop it, the occupants led out at gunpoint and then robbed and assaulted. Police, though, on both occasions had registered cases of normal theft (under IPC’s sections 379 and 356). The culprits in both the incidents were not arrested

Policemen Beat Up Women Protesters

TIMES NEWS NETWORK

      Lucknow: Women protesting against cops’ refusal to file an FIR on a missing six-year-old child were beaten up pitilessly by policemen in Aligarh on Thursday, with TV cameras recording the stomach-turning visuals of several activists brutalized by men in uniform.

      The child, who’d gone missing on Wednesday, was later found dead. This led to angry women and men taking to the streets demanding action against cops who had refused to file the complaint, and had instead asked the parents to look for their kid themselves.

      Later, Aligarh senior superintendent of police Amit Pathak admitted the police had mishandled the protest and the circle officer of Banna Devi was transferred. Two junior officers were suspended.

      On Thursday, the discovery of the girl’s body in a garbage dump triggered largescale resentment in the area. It was alleged she was sexually assaulted before being strangled, which added to the anger among family members and their neighbors. Cops reached the spot to videograph the crime scene and complete other formalities. However, angry women insisted that they were treated badly and blamed the police for the girl’s death. They said had cops acted on the parents’ complaint, her life could have been saved.

     On their part, cops said they were outnumbered with crowd hurling stones. By the time additional forces reached the site with, mob frenzy had damaged police vehicles and wounded at least three cops. Rumors of police firing triggered panic in localities near the Banna Devi.

Superstition: Scared Politicians from UP


       Politicians in India take recourse to Astrologers, Babas, Gurus, many of whom have turned out to be the power behind the throne. Dhirendra Brhmacharis and Chandra Swamis are dime a dozen.

     ‘Secular’ politicians are no less in need of ‘spiritual guidance’. Come election time many are the poor innocent goats and chicken that are slaughtered, to provide ‘victory’ at the hustings. 

      May be there is something about NOIDA that is really dangerous to Chief Ministers of Uttar Pradesh.  Records indicate that CMs who visited NOIDA paid heavily, The heaviest price that can be demanded from a politician. The loss of his/her chair. 

Noida ‘jinx’ keeps Akhilesh away

Ayaskant Das TNN

Noida: With Akhilesh Yadav inaugurating infrastructure projects in Gautam Budh Nagar on Tuesday without actually visiting the city, political grapevine is abuzz that the CM chose to stay away fearing the ‘Noida jinx’.

       The jinx, as per political circles, has in the past caught up with several chief ministers of UP, including Veer Bahadur Singh, Narayan Dutt Tiwari, Kalyan Singh and Mayawati, who lost their chairs soon after visiting Noida.

      The young CM, who rode to power projecting himself as a tech-savvy environmental engineer, gave in to superstitions when he preferred to inaugurate the Yamuna Expressway last year by the press of a button from Lucknow.

       Despite the Samajwadi Party’s grand attempt at an image makeover during their fresh term in office, political observers say that Akhilesh would at best be viewed as a chip of the old block if he continues to avoid Noida purely for superstitious reasons. The party, which had promised the ban of computers as part of their election manifesto of 2007, has actually been distributing free laptops and tablets to students after storming to power in 2012.

       “In these circumstances, Akhilesh’s decision to skip Noida just because of a superstition is an aberration from the party’s new stand,” said an SP insider. 

       Akhilesh’s fear is not wholly unfounded as the ‘jinx’ has had its effect on the Yadav clan too in the past. Samajwadi Party chieftain, Mulayam Singh Yadav, who had visited Noida as UP chief minister in 1995, lost the polls that were held immediately thereafter. 

       As per political circles, the fear of the jinx is so well entrenched that Rajnath Singh, former BJP chief minister of UP, had chosen to inaugurate the DND flyway from the Delhi side in 2001 without visiting Noida.

11-yr-old girl held in Pak on blasphemy charge 

Islamabad: An 11-year-old Christian girl has been arrested in the Pakistani capital on a charge of blasphemy after she was accused of burning pages of the Quran, police said on Saturday.

     Officials of Ramna police station said an FIR had been registered against Rimsha Masih, a resident of Umara Jaffar in Sector G-12 in Islamabad. The girl was arrested on Friday by personnel from a women’s police station after a man named Syed Muhammad Ummad filed a complaint against her.

     However, an NGO named ‘Christians in Pakistan’ reported on its website that the girl has Down Syndrome and had been falsely accused of burning 10 pages of the Quran. The NGO said other Christians living in Sector G-12 had been “threatened by extremists” who wanted to burn down their village on Friday. It said some 300 people had left their homes and were in hiding.

    National harmony minister Paul Bhatti, who is also chairman of the APMA, has contacted Islamic clerics and police to bring the situation under control.

    Rights activists have urged the government to reform or repeal the controversial blasphemy law, which they say is often misused to persecute minorities like Christians.

     Federal minister Paul Bhatti’s brother Shahbaz Bhatti, who was the minister for minority affairs, was gunned down by extremists in Islamabad in March last year after he called for the repeal of the blasphemy law. PTI
