'RAKSHAKS' AT IT AGAIN

Five people beaten up on suspicion of carrying beef, Cops book the victims



IN YET ANOTHER incident of cow vigilantism, a mob of around a hundred people has allegedly beaten up five persons, including an auto-rickshaw driver, near Gosi village in Haryana's Faridabad on suspicion of carrying beef.
 
According to the police, the mob surrounded and beat up auto-rickshaw driver and four persons suspecting them of carrying beef on Friday morning. The attackers recorded the entire incident on a mobile phone. 
 
The culprits also told the driver to chant 'Bharat mata ki jai' and 'Jai Hanuman'. When the driver refused, he was brutally thrashed.

What is worse is that the Haryana Police, instead of holding the culprits accountable, has booked the victims for allegedly carrying beef.

In fact, the victims have claimed that they were beaten up in front of some policemen. On the other hand, the Haryana Police seems to be more interested in finding out whether the meat being carried inside the auto-rickshaw was beef or not.
 
A case has been registered against the victims on suspicion of carrying beef and the meat samples have been sent for forensic examination. "Since slaughtering of cow is an offence in Haryana, a case has been registered against the five men. The results of the meat sample are awaited,” said Faridabad Police spokesperson.
 
Speaking to CNN-News18, Raman Malik, a member of the ruling BJP in Haryana, said, "The police will do due diligence before filing the FIR. If any persons is caught carrying beef, then it is a case for the police.”
 
A senior police officer of the district said a case would be registered on the complaint of the victims too.
 
Hitting out at the Manohar Lal Khattar government in the state, Congress spokesperson Sanjay Jha said the BJP had failed to maintain law and order in Haryana. 
 
The assault comes just a month after the Supreme Court delivered a strong message on cow vigilantism and told states to crack down to curb the increasing instances of cow vigilantism.
 
A few days back, RSS Mohan Bhagwat had stressed on a distinction between "pious" gau rakshaks, or cow protectors and criminals.

"People who are criminal and involved in violent activities should be bothered about that (remarks from Supreme Court and PM Modi)," Mr Bhagwat had said in his speech on the Sangh's foundation day.

ROZ, ROZ, SAME, SAME. NOW 69 IN 4. ANGRY?
Same hospital. Same deaths. Same headline. Don’t Read This.
12.10.17 - Awagyakrit Singh
Same hospital. Same deaths. Same headline. Don’t Read This.



You were angry at the death of children in Gorakhpur's BRD Medical College Hospital. You might be even more angry at reading these old headlines. So, why would you want to read a fresh headline?

Aug 11, 2017 
30 Children Die During Last 48 Hours After Gorakhpur Hospital Runs Out Of Oxygen
 
Aug 13, 2017
62 children dead since August 7 in Gorakhpur's Baba Raghav Das Medical College Hospital

Gorakhpur children deaths: No child died due to oxygen shortage, says Yogi Adityanath government 

Aug 29, 2017
Gorakhpur infant deaths: 7 more children die at BRD hospital in last 48 hours

Gorakhpur tragedy: 48 children dead in 48 hours at BRD Medical

Gorakhpur Tragedy: 61 Child Deaths In 72 Hours, 'Number May Go Up'

AT SOME POINT, you stopped reading the headlines. They seemed all alike. At some point, it became so boring. Journalists had already done similar news stories. People in newsrooms had already given headlines full of pathos. Engaged readers had already written angry letters to the editor. Editors had already penned editorials bashing the regime, and offering solemn advice about paying more attention to the health sector, particularly mentioning the weak and the marginalised poor.

At some point, every story becomes a little like a discussion on poverty. Yes, it's very bad, we need to fight poverty, entire society should take up the challenge, it is the nation's fight, our biggest enemy is poverty, and we should count the poor once again - Arjun Sen Gupta, Tendulkar, Kelkar....Till we get bored.

They still remain poor. And children still keep dying in that Gorakhpur hospital.

Brave reporters in Uttar Pradesh's regional media continued with their incessant focus on the issue, and occasionally a headline or two would make its way into a national newspaper.
--------------
Indian media had milked the story, used up all the visuals, hosted rage-filled discussions on whether oxygen supply was stopped or not. But the boring headline stayed original every single day. The infants dying in the BRD Hospital were keeping the headline fresh. By dying every day.

Indian news television had milked the story, used up all the visuals, hosted rage-filled discussions on whether oxygen supply was stopped or not.

Meanwhile, the boring headline stayed original every single day. The infants dying in the BRD Hospital were keeping the headline fresh. By dying every day. 

They died every day. On a good day, 12 children would die. On certain others, up to 20 would die. 

Here's the latest, dated October 12, 2017:
69 children died in the same BRD Hospital in 4 days; 19 in the last 24 hours

Meanwhile, the Uttar Pradesh government is busy painting the towns saffron, from school bags to booklets to furniture; the media is busy discussing comparisons between the Gorakhnath temple and Taj Mahal; and a CM was donning the role of a Mahant for a few days. 

Last time, the nation was jolted, they had arrested the college's principal, blamed doctors and other staff, even clerks, accused the pharmacist of negligence, and taken action against oxygen suppliers. 
 
Also, deaths were explained. These were not the fault of the government. The government did not kill children. They died due to premature delivery, under weight, jaundice, pneumonia, infectious diseases, encephalitis, septicemia, asphyxia, etc. Not government.

One explanation said a large number of newborns in critical condition are coming to the hospital from far-off places. No one asked why were extremely sick children coming from far off places? 

But what is it that has not been said about Gorakhpur's dying children? You have already heard the debates, read the editorials, watched the politicians blaming each other, and the parents asking where to bury the pain.

It's just numbers now - much like poverty.

Report says firm of Amit Shah's son made crores after BJP came to power; he hits back with Rs 100 crore defamation notice
08.10.17 - PT Bureau
Report says firm of Amit Shah's son made crores after BJP came to power; he hits back with Rs 100 crore defamation notice



AFTER ONE OF India's top online journalism portals today made explosive revelations about BJP President Amit Shah's son's company making whopping profits after the BJP came into power, India's Railway Minister and senior BJP leader hit back saying Jay Shah, son of Amit Shah, will file a Rs 100 crore defamation suit against the portal, the editor and the journalist.

Basing the findings on the records obtained from the Registrar of Companies (RoC), portal The Wire claimed in the financial years ending March 2013 and 2014, the company of the son of Amit Shah, Temple Enterprise Private Ltd., hardly did any business but showed a turnover of Rs 80.5 crore in 2015-16.

It managed an unsecured loan of Rs 15.78 crore from a firm owned by a kin of a top Reliance Industries executive, and then stopped its business activities mysteriously.

The Wire also claimed it was threatened by Jay Shah’s lawyer that criminal and civil defamation proceedings would be launched if the reporting betrayed any slant.

Here is a para verbatim from The Wire that gives out the complete story:

In 2013-14, Temple Enterprise did not own any fixed assets and had no inventories or stock. It also got an income tax refund of Rs 5,796. In FY 2014-15, it earned Rs 50,000 as revenue. However, in 2015-16, the firm’s revenues jumped to over Rs 80.5 crore, a growth of 16 lakh percent. Reserves and surplus jumped to Rs 80.2 lakh from Rs 19 lakh the previous year. Trade payables were Rs 2.65 crore, up from Rs 5,618 the previous year. The assets of the company were only Rs 2 lakh. The firm had no fixed assets the year before. Short-term loans and advances were Rs 4.14 crore, up from Rs 10,000 the year before. Inventories were Rs 9 crore, up from zero the previous year, according to the firm’s filings.
 

The report wondered about not only how the company's revenues rose so sharply but also why would any firm whose revenues jumped from just Rs 50,000 to over Rs 80 crore in a single year (FY 2015-16) stopped its business activities last year. 

Interestingly, the author of the investigative story, Rohini Singh, is the same journalist who had broken the story of Robert Vadra’s business dealings with DLF in 2011.

SENT 'NO ONE RESPONSIBLE' SMS TO FAMILY
ICAI chief’s daughter Pallavi Vikamsey found dead on railway tracks

ICAI chief’s daughter Pallavi Vikamsey found dead on railway tracks



TWENTY-YEAR-OLD Pallavi Vikamsey, the youngest daughter of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) president Nilesh Vikamsey, was found dead on the railway tracks in Central Mumbai.
 
She had been missing since wednesday evening, after her classes at a law firm at Fort in south Mumbai where she was doing her internship. She was last seen boarding a local train at the Chhatrapati Shivaji metro station around 6 pm, the police said.
 
Pallavi Vikamsey was interning with a law firm, Oasis Counsel and Advisory, in South Mumbai, and lived in Parel.
 
Before leaving office on Wednesday evening, the police said, Pallavi texted her family saying she intended to end her life. "She sent text messages to a few family members telling them that no one should be held responsible for her actions. She then switched off her cellphone. They began to search for her and when they couldn’t find her, they came to us,” said Sukhlal Varpe, MRA Marg police station, where a missing person’s complaint was registered by her family.
 
After scanning CCTV footage, the police found that Pallavi boarded a train from platform 5 at CSMT at 6 pm.
 
Samadhan Pawar, Deputy Commissioner of Police (Central Railway), said the Dadar railway police station was informed by the station master at Dadar at 7.15 pm that a woman’s body was lying on the tracks between Currey Road and Parel stations.
 
Next morning, Pallavi’s relatives identified the body. It was handed over to the family after a postmortem at KEM hospital.
 
"We found body of a woman on tracks between Parel and Currey road yesterday at around 7.30 pm. Today, her relatives confirmed her as Pallavi Vikamsey," said DCP Samadhan Pawar, spokesperson of GRP (Central Railway).
 
Her family said that they didn’t suspect any foul play in her death. An investigation is on into Pallavi’s mysterious death. The police said that it prima facie appeared to be a suicide.

"Prima facie it appears that the girl committed suicide," a police officer said.

For now an accidental death case has been registered.
 
Pallavi was a fourth year student at Pravin Gandhi College of Law in Mumbai. She had previously completed her graduation from HR College of Commerce and Economics in south Mumbai.

Seven dead as Indian Air Force chopper crashes

Seven dead as Indian Air Force chopper crashes



SEVEN DEFENCE PERSONNEL were killed after an Mi-17 V5 helicopter of the Indian Air Force crashed in Arunachal Pradesh's Chuna area on Friday.
 
Five of those killed were Indian Air Force personnel and two were Army officials.

The helicopter reportedly crashed around 6 am Friday while it was on an air maintenance mission. The chopper was flying in Tawang sector, bordering China.
 
IAF identified the deceased personnel as Wing Commander Vikram Upadhyay, Squadron Leader S Tiwari, MWO A K Singh, Sergeant Gautam and Sergeant Satish Kumar. The two deceased from the Indian Army are Sepoy E Balaji and Sepoy H N Deka. The Indian Air Force has ordered a Court of Inquiry to ascertain the cause of the chopper crash.
 
According to India Today, the chopper which crashed 12 kilometers from India-Tibet border, was carrying supplies for armed forces on the border. Sudden technical problem could have lead to the crash, added the report.  Rescue teams reached the crash site in Tawang near the Indo-China border and admitted the injured personnel to a local hospital.
 
PTI reported in July that Russia last year handed over to India the final batch of three Mi-17V5 military transport helicopters under a previously signed contract with Rosoboronexport, a company of the Rostec State Corporation, that entailed a total of 151 units of the Mi-17V-5 helicopter, produced by the Kazan Helicopter Plant.
 
Designed to transport cargo inside the cabin and on an external sling, the Mi-17V5 is considered to be one of the world's most advanced military transport helicopters.

Mi-17V5, supplied to India, ranks among the most technically advanced helicopters of the Mi-8/17 type, incorporating the best engineering solutions of previous generations.
 
Referring to a string of crashes of IAF’s choppers and military jets in recent years, Air Chief Marshal BS Dhanoa had said on Thursday: "Our losses in the peacetime are a cause of concern. We are making concerted efforts to minimise accidents and preserve our assets.”

In May this year, two IAF pilots died when the Sukhoi-30 jet crashed near the Assam-Arunachal border during a routine training mission.
