62 Criminal Cases against BJP Leaders Withdrawn in Karnataka

Published

on

In a quite bizarre turn of events, the state of Karnataka has recently withdrawn criminal cases against many BJP Leaders. This means that these ministers are likely to escape trial due to this move irrespective of the law enforcement agencies advising that this move will be counter-productive.  The recommendation of the sub-committee headed by the Home Minster of the state Basavaraj Bommai led to these withdrawn cases. Another interesting facet of this whole scenario is the fact that the Director General of Police, the Inspector General of Police, the Director of Prosecution and the Government Litigation and Law Department has strongly advised against the same. Here are some of the prominent people cases against who have been withdrawn. First, the Law Minister J.C. Madhuswamy and Tourism Minister C.T. Ravi for unlawful assembly and wrongful restraint in 2015 during the altercation between students of two communities in Hunsur. Second, the   MLA Anand Singh for criminal intimidation and assault on a public official along with damage to public property. Third, the Agricultural Minister, B.C. Patil for assaulting and abusing police personnel and damaging police vehicles in 2012. Fourth, Mysuru M.P. Pratap Singh for causing hurt to police personeel voluntarily in 2017 during Hanuman Jayanthi procession. These are just some examples of the cases which are being withdrawn. The Law Minister in a statement to News18 stated that this was a routine procedure and the same has been done to secure ‘public interest’.  The second reason stated was that of reducing the burden on the courts and as many of these cases involve small punishments. This comes in at a time where the Karnataka High Court stayed the proceedings against the Chief Minister of Karnataka, Mr. B.S. Yediyurappa in a distric court at Gokak for allegations of violation of the Election Code of Conduct.

NDTV – Adani Deal : All You Need To Know

Published

on

Indian billionaire Gautam Adani’s team on Tuesday said it looks forward to controlling a majority stake in the popular news channel (NDTV.NS) (NDTV), a move media group said was carried out without its consent.

An Adani Group unit said it had used financial rights in a bid to buy a 29.18% stake in NDTV, arranging plans for an upcoming open offer for a stake of another 26% according to Indian regulations.

A few hours after the announcement, NDTV gave a statement saying the move by the Adani Group “was executed without any input from, conversation with, or consent of the NDTV founders.”

 NDTV, regarded as one of India’s most popular news organizations, is one of the few newsgroups that often criticizes the policies of the ruling administration. It runs three national channels: NDTV 24×7 in English, NDTV India in Hindi, and a business news channel.

“From NDTV’s statements, it seems this may not be a friendly takeover which generally is as per agreed terms and mechanism, and in fact, may end up being a hostile takeover,” said Dipti Lavya Swain, founder and managing partner, DLS Law Offices.

Adani Group gave no immediate response to a request for comment on NDTV’s statement.

Four boys suspected of repeatedly raping 11-year-old girl | The Times of  Israel

 

An 11-year-old girl was allegedly raped by her teenage brother and father in Pune. Also, her grandfather and distant uncle used to assault her sexually. The Pune police also added that this crime was perpetrated over the past five years. Police have reported a case under different sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) for rape but are yet to arrest the culprits. 

The crime has been reported under section 376 of the Indian Penal Code against a young teenage brother and 45-year-old father. Under section 354 (Assault or criminal force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty), the crime has been reported against grandfather and uncle. Her grandfather’s age is around 60, and her uncle’s age is around 25.

The victim and her family are from Bihar and currently live in Pune. The incident was revealed when this 11-year-old girl opened up during a ‘good touch and bad touch’ session in school. When the father and daughter resided in Bihar in 2017, he began sexually harassing his daughter. Around November 2020, the girl’s older brother began sexually molesting her. The girl’s grandfather and a distant uncle used to improperly touch her. According to Inspector Satpute, because all incidences occurred individually and the suspects may not have been aware of each other’s acts, this is not a case of gang rape. Sections of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offenses Act (POCSO) will also be amended, according to the police.
