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

Protect Indian Scientists


Indian Space Research Organisation ISRO

           Indians have every reason to be proud of ISRO, which has taken up a hundred missions and ensured its place in aviation history by lifting 104 satellites, in Feb 2017 of which 101 were foreign owned. It also depicts the expertise of ISRO and the confidence that the world community reposes in Indian technology. What is more notable is that the launch was from Sriharikota, in Andhra Pradesh.

           A recent article on certain setbacks to the Indian Space Agency launches has set forth a chain of negative thoughts which however need to be aired in view of their impact on National Security.

         ISRO has lost contact with Geostationary Satellite 6A over two months back. GSAT 11 has recently been recalled from French Guiana just before its launch.

       Commercial Launch market is highly competitive and ISRO costs are just half of costs by other private players. Therefore, in these days of industrial espionage and wilful sabotage, Government of India must be extremely careful on security aspects.

       The case of Dr Nambi Narayanan who was falsely accused by Kerala Police imprisoned and tortured, cannot be forgotten. “The ISRO spy case did not only finish the careers of two exceptionally talented scientists but also put India’s cryogenic engine development programme on hold for more than 19 years.” *

       Could such crass frame-ups  been possible without aid and abetment by senior politicians and bureaucrats? Individuals involved in framing up the scientists and derailing Indian Cryogenic efforts have got away free.

     The recent Antrix ISRO case involving officers of ISRO is subjudice. But can one say today, that it is not another case foisted on ISRO officials to demoralise its officers and staff and derail any initiatives by scared executives?

      Not to be forgotten, there was a mole in the cabinet of Indira Gandhi in 1971. There are many individuals with ideologies, that owe their birth and sustenance to external sources. Attacks on our country need not necessarily be of the Kashmir or Pathankot variety; but also by internal sabotage ,  through misinformation and derailing systems.

      Indian scientists are dedicated and should be protected from extraneous pressures and free to channelize all efforts to achieving the goals of their organisations, instead of looking over their shoulder all the while fearing frame-ups.

Despite his distinguished career at ISRO where he headed the cryogenics division, falsified charges of espionage have dented reputation of scientist Nambi Narayanan, observed the Supreme Court on Wednesday. The Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra, heading the bench hearing his plea said that the state of Kerala must pay a remuneration of Rs. 60 lakh or Rs. 75 lakh to the former scientist.

The Bench is also looking at a possibility of re-investigation into the role of then SIT officers who had framed the former scientist. The court also said that the officers involved in the investigation will have to pay from their own pockets.

Dr Narayanan was arrested in November 1994 by the Kerala Police on espionage allegations under sections 3, 4 and 5 of the Indian Official Secrets Act, 1923. He was remanded to police custody for 50 days where he was allegedly tortured by officials of Kerala Police and Intelligence Bureau of India and his statements were obtained allegedly under duress. The Police claimed that he had passed on rocket technology and cryogenic technology to some other countries for illegal gratification. However, on the investigation by the CBI, the charges were found to be false and the findings of the CBI were upheld by the Supreme Court in 1998.   

Details of the case

On 20th October 1994, Mariam Rasheeda, a Maldives native was the first one to be arrested for overstaying in Kerala. She was found to be connected to D Sasikumar, an ISRO scientist. Later, her friend, Fauzia Hassan was also arrested. A special investigation team formed on 15th November 1994 headed by DGP Siby Mathews took over the case and arrested Nambi Narayanan, Chandrasekharan and SK Sharam who were businessmen based in Bengaluru accusing them of selling ISRO’s cryogenic programme secrets to the women who were allegedly acting as spies for Russia, ISI and others.

The case was handed over to the CBI on 28th November 1994. The final report submitted by the CBI in April 1996 said that the case lacked evidence to substantiate the charges and all six were finally acquitted by the court.

Narayanan introduced the liquid rocket fuel technology in India in the early 70’s and was the first to build a successful 600-kg liquid motor engine and went on making even bigger one. He and his team also developed the ‘Vikas engine’ which was used in Indian’s moon mission. The ISRO spy case did not only finish the careers of two exceptionally talented scientists but also put India’s cryogenic engine development programme on hold for more than 19 years.

 

 

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

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.
