<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Two persons were arrested on Monday with counterfeit currency in the denominations of newly introduced Rs 2,000 and Rs 500, having a face value of Rs 26,10,000, police said.”Acting on a tip-off, the city crime branch sleuths intercepted a car at Hanuman Madhi area and arrested two persons with fake currency notes of Rs 2,000 with face value of Rs 26 lakh, and of Rs 500 with face value of Rs 10,000,” Rajkot Commissioner of Police Anupam Singh Gehlot told mediapersons here.The arrested persons were identified as Hruday Jagani and Lakshman Chauhan, both hailing from Ahmedabad, he said.The notes were kept inside the speaker box of the car in which they were travelling, Gehlot said.He said a high quality colour printing machine was also seized from their possession which was used to print the currency notes.The cover of notes’ bundles bore the tag and seal of a public sector bank to make them look like original, he said.”Hruday used to work as a printer and has a sound technical know-how of printing and cutting notes with perfection so that they look like original,” Gehlot said.”The mastermind was identified as one Jignesh Shah, who is a land broker in Ahmedabad. Jignesh would find customers looking to exchange their old currency notes, and would order printing of notes after he struck a deal with his customers,” the senior police officer said.A search is on to nab Shah.He said the accused might have supplied several such notes since demonetisation came into effect on November 9.”They would bring such notes into circulation in different ways. They’d hide duplicate notes in the bundle of original notes so that it was supplied easily, and would earn around Rs 15,000-20,000 on supply of Rs 2 lakh,” Gehlot said.”Another modus operandi was to hide blank notes below the Rs 2,000 lookalike duplicate notes,” he said.Gehlot said ever since demonetisation came into effect, around Rs 2 crore worth of old notes and Rs 70 lakh of new notes were seized from Rajkot alone.

Hyderabad HC dismisses plea for declaration of Jayalalithaa’s assets as public property

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The Hyderabad High Court dismissed a plea filed by a city-based organisation seeking declaration of late J Jayalalithaa’s assets located in Telangana as public properties and imposed a Rs 1-lakh fine on it.A division bench of the high court, headed by Acting Chief Justice Ramesh Ranganathan, dismissed the public interest petition seeking a direction to Telangana government to confiscate the properties left behind by late AIADMK supremo with a cost of Rs 1 lakh. Earlier, a public interest litigation seeking to take over the assets of late Jayalalithaa had been filed with the high court by Gareeb Guide Society, a voluntary organisation, which wanted the assets to be taken over as public property, as per the Succession Act.The division bench observed that the petitioner has neither the locus standi nor the relief claimed by him is tenable in law. The petitioner has embarked upon the present course of action only to gain cheap popularity at the cost the precious time of the court, it said. “It is a sheer abuse of process of the court and he should pay for his mistake, so that, nobody would emulate his example,” the HC said. The writ petition stated that Jayalalithaa had left behind a commercial complex and a farm house in Telangana and she had not bequeathed the property to any other person.Hence, the petitioner suggested that the government should appropriate the said assets to the state. The high court found that it was a “vexatious” litigation with no merits in it.The court further directed the Telangana government to recover the fine from the petitioner, if he fails to pay it.

Home Minstry issues country-wide advisory, asks states to be extra vigilant during festivals

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Amidst the continuing tension with Pakistan, the Centre has asked all states to be extra vigilant against attempts by terrorists and subversive elements to disrupt peace and ignite communal tension during the festival season. Acting on intelligence inputs, the Home Ministry has issued a country-wide advisory asking all states to deploy additional forces in crowded places like markets, railway stations, bus terminuses and religious sites to foil attempts by terrorists to carry out attacks.The advisory was issued after intelligence inputs suggested that Pakistan-based terrorist groups may try to disrupt peace in vulnerable areas in the wake of surgical strikes by Indian army against terror launch pads across LoC. The Home Ministry particularly told the police of major cities like Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai, Bengaluru and Hyderabad to be extra vigilant during the Dussehra, Durga Puja and Moharram festivities.The states were also asked to be alert during the festivals as provocative sloganeering, especially near mosques and dargahs, besides places where idols have been installed. The Centre said observance of festivals at disputed places, processions through non-traditional routes and forcible collection of donations, besides eveteasing often trigger communal tensions.Besides, crowded pandals and immersion processions also remain soft targets for saboteurs. Special watch on pandals, procession routes and venues of immersion would be desirable to prevent communal incidents and other law and order problems, the advisory said.In the recent past, there have been incidents of campaigns by right wing Hindu activists against cow slaughter leading to communal tension. Sacrifice of cattle in public and non-traditional places has also triggered communal incidents.

Mumbai cops rescue 28 youngsters including 12 minors from clutches of self-styled god-man

The Mumbai Police have rescued as many as 28 youngsters, including 12 minors, from the clutches of a self-styled god-man, who have confined them in a bungalow in Mumbai’s Kandivali area.The god-man had allegedly used to force the youngsters into performing rituals that were physically and mentally torturous.Police inspector Sunaina Nate of the Samta Nagar Police Station said, “One of the children managed to inform his kin about the exploitation he was subjected to.

Insect attack leaves green marks on Taj Mahal

Several spots and green marks were spotted on the white marble of the iconic Taj Mahal in Agra, following an insect attack from nearby Yamuna river.Archaeologists have identified the pests as Goeldichironomus, a species that grows near polluted water bodies. The increasingly dirty Yamuna river near the Taj has served as a breeding ground for the insects. However, Head of Entomology Department at St John’s College, Doctor Girish Maheshvri, said in spite of attacking the monument, the insects are not likely to inflict harm on the marble of the Taj.<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>”Acting on a request by the Archaeological Society of India (ASI), we have identified the insect as Goeldichironomus. These grow in numbers when pollution levels of water bodies rise. They form a swamp and are attracted towards sand (stone). The swarming is a result of nuptial flight among the insects. They are attracted towards the Taj. The greenery on the monument’s white marble is partially digested chlorophyll combined with their fecal matter. I don’t think this will cause damage to the stone,” Maheshvri said on Tuesday.This is the second such attack on the Taj by this species. Efforts are on to clean the monument. But archaeologist Bhuvan Vikram Singh said the problem needs to be addressed at its roots. “The deposit on the Taj is water soluble. We are trying to clean it with water. But cleaning the Taj Mahal with water will not solve the problem. We know where and how these insects grow, so if we solve the problem at the basic level, we can stop them from growing in numbers and there will be no marks on the Taj,” he said.Increasing urbanisation and industrialisation in Agra have taken pollution levels in the city to two or three times above global standards. Pollution levels in the Yamuna too have been increasing rapidly, with industrial waste being dumped into it on a regular basis. Ash from dead bodies burnt in a nearby cremation ground that is released into the river is another factor.The historical Taj Mahal was built by Mughal emperor Shah Jahan as a mausoleum for his wife Mumtaz Mahal. Attracting around 20,000 visitors every day, the monument was completed in 1648.

Maha govt to declare drought in over 29,000 villages, HC told

In the wake of acute water shortage in various parts of Maharashtra, the state government has informed the Bombay High Court that it would declare drought in over 29,000 villages in the state and all relief prescribed in the Drought Manual, 2009 would be provided.The government in its reply to a batch of PILs on water shortage issue, has told the court that it would issue a corrigendum and clarify that wherever reference is made to a ‘drought-like situation’ and ‘drought-affected areas’, the same should be read as ‘drought’. The affidavit said last week the government was strictly implementing various schemes and taking various measures to mitigate the water scarcity in drought-hit areas and more particularly in Marathwada and Vidharbha regions.<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The court also took note of the contention of Acting Advocate General Rohit Deoit that it would not be possible for the government to supply drinking water daily to all districts but it would be supplied on a regular basis.Deo assured the court that potable water would be supplied to all districts affected by drought regularly till the onset of the monsoon. The government had earlier told the high court, which is hearing the PILs, that it had declared ‘drought-like situation’ in over 29,000 villages in Maharashtra.One of the petitioners, Sanjay Lakhe Patil had alleged last week that the government has failed to implement the Drought Manual of 2009 as well as the Drought Management Plan, 2005. He had submitted that the state government has deliberately not declared drought in Maharashtra or in the actually affected areas.”This was done in order to ensure that additional relief which is normally given to villages which are declared as drought-hit villages is not given and these villages have been avoided,” Patil had argued. After perusing the affidavit, the court had noted, “Prima facie we are satisfied that the government has given a serious thought and has considered this issue in detail and is taking immediate steps for the purpose of ensuring that in the month of May and part of June this year all adequate measures as mentioned in the Drought Manual are being undertaken.” The court posted the petitions for hearing on May 24 to ensure that the government is implementing the provisions under the manual.

After the death of Kirpal Singh, kin of two other Indian soldiers in Pak jail express fears to govt

Families of two Indian soldiers, Mangal Singh and Ram Das, who are reportedly being held at Pakistan’s Kot Lakhpat jail since the 1971 war, have asked the central government to take the matter up with Pakistan, after an Indian prisoner there died on Monday under mysterious circumstances, reports The Indian Express.

Pakistan on Wednesday informed India that Indian inmate Kirpal Singh died of a heart attack at a jail in Lahore two days back after the issue of his mysterious death was taken up with the Pakistani authorities even as the government said it was awaiting further details in the case.

“After Sarabjit, it is now Kirpal who has died under mysterious circumstances and the same may happen to Mangal Singh and Ram Das,” members from both the families told The Indian Express.

The two soldiers, who were initially assumed dead and declared “martyr” after the 1971 war by the Indian government, have been in Pakistan custody for over forty years.

India’s Acting High Commissioner JP Singh met Director General (South Asia) in Pakistan Foreign Ministry in Islamabad following a directive from the Indian government in connection with death of Kirpal Singh, who was languishing for nearly 25 years in jail in connection with a serial blasts case there.

“According to government of Pakistan, Shri Kirpal Singh died on 11 April 11 at 1455 hours due to heart attack. We await further details,” Spokesperson in the External Affairs Ministry Vikas Swarup said.

He said India’s Acting High Commissioner has also requested the Pakistan Foreign Ministry official for earliest possible repatriation of mortal remains of Kirpal Singh.

50-year-old Kirpal was languishing in a Pakistani jail for nearly 25 years on spying charges. He had allegedly crossed over to Pakistan through Wagah border in 1992 and was arrested.

He was subsequently sentenced to death in a serial bomb blasts case in Pakistan’s Punjab province.

Kirpal, who hailed from Gurdaspur, was reportedly acquitted of charges related to bomb blasts by the Lahore High Court but his death sentence could not be commuted due to unknown reasons.

Jagir Kaur, Kirpal’s sister, earlier said the family could not raise voice for his release due to financial constraints and no politician came forward to plead his case.

The government asked India’s acting envoy to seek a meeting with the Pakistan Foreign Office in connection with Kirpal’s death under mysterious circumstances and seek early transfer of the mortal remains.

“On Kirpal Singh, our acting high commissioner in Islamabad has been instructed to seek a meeting at the highest possible level in Pakistan Foreign Office this forenoon to seek early transportation of Singh’s mortal remains,” Swarup said earlier.

The moment the bench said it would refer the matter to a larger bench, a battery of senior lawyers, including F S Nariman, Kapil Sibal and Harish Salve, representing various parties in the matters, rushed to the court of the Chief Justice T S Thakur and sought setting up of the Constitution bench on an urgent basis on the ground that the matter was sensitive and needed to be decided at the earliest. The CJI assured them of an early decision.<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Yesterday, the apex court had ordered that the proceedings of the state assembly will not be held till Friday. The bench had also allowed Rebia to take back his plea filed against an administrative order of the Acting Chief Justice of the High Court. Rebia, who has challenged in Gauhati High Court various decisions of the Governor and Deputy Speaker including his removal from the Speaker’s post, had alleged that the High Court’s Acting Chief Justice had “erroneously rejected” his plea, filed on the judicial side, in administrative capacity. He had also sought recusal of Justice B K Sharma from hearing his plea.Rebia was removed from the post of the Speaker by 14 rebel Congress MLAs, disqualified by the Speaker, and BJP MLAs on December 16 in an assembly session presided over by the Deputy Speaker in a Community Hall in Itanagar. The Deputy Speaker, before removing Rebia from Speaker’s post, had also quashed the disqualification of the rebel Congress legislators.Later, various decisions of the Governor and the Deputy Speaker were challenged by Rebia in Gauhati High Court which passed an interim order keeping in abeyance the decisions of Governor and Deputy Speaker till February one.
