4-yr-old panther enters farmer’s house in Rajasthan

A panther strayed into a house in a village near Chomu town on Tuesday afternoon creating panic in the village. Although no person was attacked by the feline, the mere presence of a panther in the village not only made the locals curious to see the feline but also posed problem in its rescue.

Rajasthan fails to safeguard sloth bears

The Rajasthan government is reportedly not doing enough to save the sloth bears in the state.In 2005, the Sariska Tiger Reserve near Alwar saw a tragedy with all the tigers in the park lost to poaching. It was shocking because it was not before several months had passed that the forest department and the state government took notice of the situation. Although tigers were then trans-located into the reserve – of which a good numbers are surviving today – but a decade since the debacle, another blunder is about to take place, this time due to the apathy of the forest department.Due to the lethargic attitude of the department, the chance to revive a species long extinct in the area has now been lost. The species being talked about is the sloth bear, which was once abundant in the entire Aravalli range.In March 2013, a lone bear had strayed into a village near Malarna forest check post under Rajgarh forest of Sariska tiger Reserve. The six-year-old bear had come from Bharatpur. It was rescued and relocated in Kalighati forest area and the animal marked its territory in the park. It roamed around Kankwari, Tehla, Kalighati, Slopka region till Pandupol forest in the park covering a huge area. With this, hopes to revive the species were ignited. But four years since the bear was brought to Sariska, there is no representation of the species in the area. Whats more, the bear has not been sighted by forest officials for nearly a year.”There were no signs of the bear in the last year. We have not come across any carcass. We do not know if the animal was poached or has gone out of the area or has died a natural death” a highly placed official in the department said.Thought was given to the possiblity of reviving the species and plans were also made. However, the department took too long to formulate as in 2015 the final report for reintroduction was completed and tabled. “A factual report, along with a Sloth Bear Reintroduction Project, was forwarded to the forest department in May 2013 year regarding bringing a female bear to the park. It was, however, not put up before the Wildlife Board for consideration,” a forest official told DNA.More red tapeism followed in the state government and the final nod was received in 2017 from NTCA. “There was a glitch, however. The department could not just lift any female bear but the ones that had strayed out of the forest and towards city or village and was healthy to undertake such a journey could only be shifted,” sources said.Officials in the knowhow claim that there have been several incidences over the years particularly in Sirohi district wherein sloth bears have ventured out of the forest areas.But officials claim that the animal might have moved out of area. “Although it has not been sighted for a long time, we think the bear might have gone out of the area and towards Jamwa Ramgarh. It is a free ranging animal and might have gone anywhere” said Balaji Kari, DFO Sariska.Interestingly, reports of a bear in Jamwa Ramgarh have not been received over the past several months.

‘Policing’ on cloud

Technology is fast becoming a major tool to bring transparency in the working of several government departments. There have been several instances wherein the police have been accused of not being transparent while investigating a case, but now with the help of technology they are ensuring that their credibility is not doubted. In order to bring in more transparency, the state Crime Investigation Department (CID)- crime branch, has started a new initiative, one which not only strengthens the police’s conduct and transparency but will also put those people giving statements under scanner.For the past three months, the CID – CB has taken to video recording of statements of witnesses, accused and parties regarding different cases. In just three months since its inception, the CID officers have recorded a whopping 685 statements related to various cases being investigated by the branch.Highly placed officials said, “There have been instances wherein the investigating officers have been accused of tampering with statements of people. We record the statements under section 161 CrPC, but in court, a person can turn them down and claim that the cops tampered with it, thus affecting not only the case but even police’s credibility.”To uphold the state police’s integrity, the CID started video recording of cases. “We came up with the idea and took it ahead. Now all the cases being investigated in the CID are covered in this fashion. We provided smart phones to our officers and taught them how to record the statements on video. The video is so recorded that not just the person giving statements is seen but even the IO so that there is no allegation put on us later that a person gave a certain statement under pressure” said Pankaj Kumar Singh, Additional Director General – Crime.But what happens of the video after the statements are recorded? “As a person finishes his/her statements, immediately the video gets uploaded on the cloud. The service is provided by DoIT who provide security and other facilities for our data as well. No tampering of such a video is possible either at our end or at the other person’s end. Thus it is secure. Moreover, there is an additional feature. As soon as the video is uploaded to cloud, the concerned Superintendent (SP) and the Inspector General (IG) receive a text message which contains details of the case for which the video is uploaded and the name of person whose statements have been recorded amongst other details” the ASG informed.No statement changingAnd what happens when the case goes for trial? “When we file a chargesheet, we will mention that statements are available in video also. If any person changes statements in court, we can anytime produce those videos before the court to corroborate with our reports thus proving that the person was lying in court and not the police. Electronically recorded statements are admissible in court,” Pankaj Kumar Singh said.Contemplating to use it state-wideInterestingly, the department hopes that the newly adopted method would be implemented across the state. “We are studying the development and hoping this would be adopted in investigations in police station level, but we don’t see that happening before December. It will be taken slowly as first only a certain area of the state and certain crimes for example women related crimes would be covered. Then we would move to SC/ST crimes and so on,” an officials said.

How aam aadmi is ‘misusing’ power of istagasa

When a crime is committed, the police registers a case. This is the basic logistic. However, there have been hundreds of incidents wherein the police is accused of siding with the perpetrator of any crime and refusing to register the particular matter. In such a scenario, a common man can approach the court and register a case under Section 156(3) of the Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC) called istagasa wherein the court would then direct the police station concerned to conduct investigation.The idea behind a aforementioned section is noble, however over period of time, it has appeared that the power has been misused by people in registering fake cases and troubling another person by regular questioning by cops.This has been corroborated by the fact that nearly three fourth of all cases registered in Rajasthan under 156 (3) CrPC since 2013 have found to be false under police investigation. A close look at the data reveals the same.In 2013, nearly 63,000 cases (62,976) were registered through istagasa of which 40,986 cases were found to be false – 72.23 per cent cases. In 2014, the number increase as 67,680 cases were registered of which 45,014 cases were found to be false – 73.14 per cent. In 2015 too 73.64 cases of 63,013 cases were found to be false.However in 2015, the Supreme Court gave a judgment in Priyanka Srivastav Vs state of UP and others, observing , “In our considered opinion, a stage has come in this country where Section 156(3) Cr.P.C. applications are to be supported by an affidavit duly sworn by the applicant who seeks the invocation of the jurisdiction of the Magistrate. That apart, in an appropriate case, the learned Magistrate would be well advised to verify the truth and also can verify the veracity of the allegations. This affidavit can make the applicant more responsible. We are compelled to say so as such kind of applications are being filed in a routine manner without taking any responsibility whatsoever only to harass certain persons.”The Apex court also made it mandatory for the applicant to file an affidavit. “We have already indicated that there has to be prior applications under Section 154(1) and 154(3) while filing a petition under Section 156(3). Both the aspects should be clearly spelt out in the application and necessary documents to that effect shall be filed.The warrant for giving a direction that an the application under Section 156(3) be supported by an affidavit so that the person making the application should be conscious and also endeavour to see that no false affidavit is made. It is because once an affidavit is found to be false, he will be liable for prosecution in accordance with law. This will deter him to casually invoke the authority of the Magistrate under Section 156(3)” the order reads.Since the order, Rajasthan Police has seen a huge slump in the number of cases under 156(3) CrPC. Just in 2016, a decrease of nearly ten thousand cases was seen as 53,682 cases were registered compared to 63,013 cases in 2015.Furthermore till November 2017, only 40,702 cases have been registered denoting a further decrease in such cases.However, it may be noted that even though an affidavit is demanded to file with the case so that action can be taken if found to be false, three-fourth cases are still found to be false as in 2016 73.61 per cent cases in 2016 and 72.46 per cent cases – thus far – in 2017 have been found to be false.FACT SHEETIn 2013, nearly 63,000 cases (62,976) were registered through istagasa of which 40,986 cases were found to be false – 72.23 per cent cases.

Raj murder: Protests call for Vasundhara Raje to quit

A day after the arrest of Shambhulal Raigar — who hacked a fifty-year-old man and then set the man ablaze — by Rajsamand police, Raigar was produced before a court amid high police deployment for security on Friday. The police received a remand of three days to interrogate the man and find out the reason behind the killing.Senior officials said that the police will interrogate Raigar not only to find out why he burnt Md Afrazul Khan — a worker from West Bengal’s Malda district — alive, but to see whether he was incited by anyone to commit such an act.”We sought a remand for three days in the matter. The man is being subjected to interrogation, and no conclusion has been reached as yet,” said Manoj Kumar, Superintendent of Police, Rajsamand.Locals from the area are still in shock as the video of the incident went viral on social networking sites. The police, however, are still deployed in the area to control the situation in case of a public outrage.Meanwhile people held agitations in Jaipur on Friday demanding action by the government against perpetrators of such crimes. The protesters also demanded resignation of Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje as she failed to save the minority from the increasing communal hatred in the state. Claiming that it is a planned conspiracy to cause harm to the fabric of the country, the protestors said the Central and state governments are aiding such people.The protestors also demanded that Prime Minister Narendra Modi should speak on the issue and make his stand clear. They said they were holding the protest in a bid to bring an end to the hatred politics. “The attack is on democracy and Constitution, and not only on a single person,” said Mukesh Nirvasat, one of the protesters.INVESTIGATIONThe police received a 3-day remand to find out the reason behind the brutal killing. They will also try to find out whether Raigar was incited by someone to commit the murder.

Extra police sent, net shut

Within hours of apprehending Shyamlal Raigar for the murder, a pandora’s box has been opened for the Rajsamand police. While the police are on their toes in Rajsamand and nearby districts owing to the sensitivity of the matter, additional forces have been deployed in the districts and internet services have been temporarily suspended to avoid rumour mongering on social media.The police have also learnt that the man even made a few videos before the day of crime. “Shyamlal made a few videos some days before the commission of crime while on the day of murder he made two videos. The video of murder was made by his nephew who is a minor,” said Anand Srivastav, Inspector General – Udaipur Range.The cops have however detained a dozen of people for questioning. “Shyamlal’s friends and family members are being questioned. We are also trying to find out if the man committed the act under some sort of conspiracy and if someone other than him was behind the murder,” the IG said.Interestingly, Shyamlal does not have a criminal background as was being thought of by the brutal way he murdered Rafizul. “He was a marble trader for nearly a decade primarily operating in Rajsamand, Gurgaon and Anand in Gujarat. His parents live in Anand but are originally from Rajasthan. He has three daughters and the youngest daughter is undergoing treatment for a mental disorder. She was also benefited by pension given in such cases by the government,” Srivastav said. Meanwhile, the range IG said that internet ban has been imposed to avoid rumour mongering. “The police have been deployed to avoid any law and order situation while internet has been banned also.As of now no issue of ‘Love Jihad’ has come to light,” Srivastav said.

Accused’s nephew taped Rajasthan slaughter

Within hours of apprehending Shyamlal Raigar for the gruesome murder of Muslim labourer Mohammed Afrazul, 47, in Rajasthan’s Rajsamand district, internet services in the district were temporarily barred and additional security forces were deployed.The police also learnt that the accused, Raigar, made a few videos before the crime as well. “Some videos were made a few days ahead of the commission of crime, while two videos were made on the day of murder. The murder was captured on the video by Raigar’s nephew, a minor,”said Anand Srivastav, Inspector General, Udaipur range.The range IG further said the internet ban was expected to stem rumours from spreading. “As of now, no Love Jihad angle has come to light,” he said. The cops have also detained a dozen people for questioning. “Raigar’s friends and family members are being questioned about the man,” the IG said.”We are also trying to find out whether the act was committed under some sort of conspiracy and whether someone other than him was behind the murder,” he added.Interestingly, Raigar does not have a criminal background, as was being thought earlier. “He was a marble trader for nearly a decade, primarily operating in Rajsamand, Gurugram, and Anand in Gujarat. His parents live in Anand but are originally from Rajasthan. He has three daughters and the youngest is undergoing treatment for a mental disorder. She also gets a government pension,” Srivastav said.Commenting on the incident, DGP O P Galhotra said:”It is a heinous act that no person of sane mind would ever commit. The home minister had directed to form an SIT under SP, Rajsamand. The investigation was completed within 24 hours, and the main accused was arrested. He is being interrogated. Since the investigation is in a priliminary stage, not much can be said right now.”Notably, a minor girl seen in one of the videos was Raigar’s daughter.”It has also come to light that the murder video was made by Raigar’s minor nephew. Also, he is not associated with any outfit or organisation and does not have a criminal background,” the DGP said, adding: “We are perturbed that such a crime has taken place in the state. It is our utmost priority that the chargesheet is filed as soon as possible and the accused is punished. It is a rarest of rare case and we will demand death penalty for the accused.”The top cop further said: “Ours is a peaceful state and a heinous act like this one can not be used to generalise the law and order situation. We would like to assure the general public that any activity that hampers the peace in the state will not be tolerated.”Meanwhile, accused Raigar has claimed that he was being threatened by the deceased’s community members. He alleged that the complainant had fled with a girl to Bengal and after Raigar successfully rescued her, he started getting threats.”I have known this girl since childhood and she was like a family member. I used to study with her brother in school and their family lived near us,” Raigar said, when questioned by the media.”They took the girl from our area and I went to Bengal to bring her back. After this, they started threatening me. I am a normal person,” he further said.Meanwhile, the family members of victim Khan, who hailed from a village in Kaliachak of Malda district of West Bengal, said that they were shell-shocked since receiving the phone call on Wednesday.”He was murdered because of his faith and they spun a yarn to justify it. I want the murderers to be hanged in public,” said Khan’s wife Gul Bahar Bibi. She said he last talked to his family in Malda on February 5.Khan is survived by his wife and three daughters, Jyotsna Khatoon, Rejina Khatoon, and Habiba Khatoon.”It is a big conspiracy. The fact that his brutal murder was taped and circulated on social media is proof enough. The murderer butchered him while he kept crying for mercy. Our relatives in Rajasthan are in touch with the police and we hope the administration works towards unearthing the truth,” Rejina said.Chief minister Mamata Banerjee, too, condemned the act. “How can people be so inhuman? Sad,” she tweeted.

Crime handcuffed

The men in Khakhi have always been on the firing line of the general public over law and order and crimes in the state. It is a general feeling amongst people that with each passing year the incidents of crime escalates. Even thinkers and experts in the field of policing and crime claim that there exists a directly proportional relation between crime and increase in population, simply because there has been observed an upward trend cases of crime year after year.However, the state of Rajasthan has coughed up yet another surprise. Compared to 2016, a whopping 5.65% decrease has been observed in IPC crimes till November 2017 like murder, attempt to murder, dacoity, kidnapping and rapes to name a few. With another 23 days to go in the year, the number of crimes might increase, but will still be less than the last year.Out of a total of 1,69,558 IPC crimes registered till November 2016, 1,59,980 IPC crimes were registered till 2017 November. A close look at the various crimes reveal a change in pattern.

Tortured by in-laws, woman says cops too didn’t help

A married woman from Harmara area staged a sit-in outside her in-laws’ house on Monday alleging that she had been thrown out of the house by them. The woman stayed out of the house even after the local police persuaded her to end the sit-in. The woman had been thrown out and a case was registered against her last year by the in-laws while she had also registered a case against them.The married woman Rekha (name changed) has even written letters to the police, local legislators and politicians from the Congress party to come to her aid. Speaking to DNA, Rekha said, “I was thrown out of the house last year by in-laws who claimed that I had stolen valuable items from home. They even harassed me and my brother in law used to misbehave with me for which a case was also registered.”In the letter, however, the woman mentioned that she was tortured as she could not give them a child. However, on Monday, the woman started a sit-in outside the house. “When my in-laws saw me, they closed the doors from inside. The cops also came but they also asked them to remain behind doors and left me here on the road outside the house,” she alleged.However, station house officer of Harmara police station Lakhan Singh Khatan claimed that there was no one in the house. “There has been a death in the woman’s in-laws’ family for which the family has gone after locking the house. The woman has herself put a lock on the door. There is a case already going on in the court wherein both the parties have registered against each other. We received a call from the woman and she even called the control room and DCP office informing about the sit-in. We sent a team who tried to talk to her but she did not budge from her stand. There are a few men with her who keep instigating her,” the SHO said.VICTIM SPEAKSRekha said, “I was thrown out of the house last year by in-laws who claimed that I had stolen valuable items.” “My brother-in-law used too misbehaved with me for which a case was also registered.”

Inbreeding threatens tigers of Ranthambhore?

Tigers of Rajasthan are a unique lot. Due to their isolation from the remaining population in the country, the tigers in Ranthambhore and Sariska Tiger reserves have become genetically isolated. Through this, the threat of inbreeding and thereby extermination of these felines from the state becomes a real one. A study conducted by the Wildlife Institute of India (WII) and other agencies throws light in this regard, however, there appears to be a slight aberration as well.Tigers in Rajasthan from the western most extant population of wild tigers. Historically, the range of these striped felines extended to northwest into Pakistan but was locally extinct, thus tigers in Ranthambhore and Sariska form the western most boundary.The study says, “Our analyses reveal that tigers from the North-West cluster (Ranthambore) are genetically isolated. Such genetic isolation is supported by the fact that they form a distinct cluster in structure analysis and have the highest pair-wise with other genetic clusters.”Furthermore, the study reveals that the tigers could be at high risk of extinction. “Data also suggest that genetic diversity in Ranthambore is much lower in comparison to all other genetic clusters, possibly due to small effective size and/or isolation. Low genetic variation contributes to higher extinction risk in wild populations. The results suggest that the Ranthambore population is isolated and that inbreeding depression is a realistic possibility in this population,” the study says about Ranthambhore tigers.Logic dictates that when the gene pool shrinks, extinction of a specie become imminent. However there is a surprise hidden in Ranthambhore tigers too. They seem to be unperturbed, even through they are genetically isolated.“They (tigers) separate from other individuals in the network analysis, even at low thresholds of genetic similarity,” the study reads. This means that even though Ranthambhore tigers are isolated, contrary to popular scientific belief, there is still a greater dissimilarity between tigers here.“Tigers in Rajasthan are unique and it is surprising that even after inbreeding no deficiency of any sort can be seen in these tigers. These tigers have adapted themselves to the arid zone and as the study reveals, are different from other tigers,” says Yadvendra Jhala of the WII.Jhala further adds, “With genetic pool limitations come the threat of extinction but these tigers are surprisingly healthy. There is no malformation in them.”

Gamble game: Man abducted, beaten & looted by friends

Financial issues between friends resulted in an enmity which not only resulted in the kidnapping but also death threats with arms, loot and forceful signature on blank documents. Interestingly, the friends who turned foes – are bettors (gamblers). One of the friend – the victim – had lost money in betting and the friend – the accused – had helped in coming out of the financial situation but the man denied paying for past two years and out of desperation for money, the friend who helped took an extreme step.One Ikram Khan approached the Jawahar Circle police in the matter. “The man, in his FIR, has said that he was at his shop when two men identified as Feli Meena, Dharmpal Meena alias Sethi Meena came to his shop and told him they could get him a loan at low rates. The man agreed and sat in the duo’s Bolero jeep. The duo took him to Malviya Nagar where another man – Robin – also joined them and the men then headed for Indra Gandhi Nagar Railway line. On reaching the location, the trio suddenly attacked Ikram and started beating him. One of the men pulled out a pistol and threatened Ikram. They then forcefully took Ikram to a forest near Bassi where they called three other men with ropes and sticks,” said Munshi Lal, investigating officer, Jawahar Circle police station.The men then tied Ikram and beat him severely and even made obscene clips of him. “The men tried to strangle him and took sixty-two thousand rupees cash he was carrying along with his ATM card and kept the man as hostage. The man was then brought back to his shop from where the men recovered two cheques and forcefully got his signatures on two blank papers and a stamp paper. The men then left Ikram and fled,” the IO said.Interestingly, highly placed sources informed that both Ikram and Feli are best of friends and are both involved in betting. Ikram had lost four lakh rupees in betting and Feli had provided the amount, however, for two years Ikram failed to pay the same. “A search for the accused has been initiated,” officials said.

Ration scam: CM orders action against DSO

In a Jhunjhunu village even the dead are regularly coming to ration shop to collect their supplies under Food Security Scheme. This may sound odd but chief minister Vasundhara Raje was informed that the corruption in Aduka village has reached to such level, a fuming Raje immediately asked officials to charge sheet the district supply officer (DSO) Subhash Choudhary. Few rural folks who came to attend the ‘CM Jan Sanwad’ Programme on Friday in Gudagaur Ji (Jhunjunu) exposed the level of corruption prevailing in supply of Public Distribution System (PDS) in front of the CM. They alleged that their village Sarpanch, Mohanlal Sharma, who happens to be ration dealer also, took supply of rations in the name of the people who are dead.When the same issue was conveyed to DSO Choudhary, he ignored it and did not take action against the dealer. Raje, after verifying the complaint, directed officials to slap charge sheet on the DSO and take action against those involved in this scam. At Jan Sanwad programme, the CM assured the people that the government will take strict action against the higher officials if their subordinate fail to redress grievances at their level. “The higher officials need to act against the subordinates if they fail to address grievances of common man. We will also take action against the higher officials if the grievances remain unaddressed at lower lever,” said Raje, directing the officials to file compliance report on the grievances received in the programme so far by Saturday morning. Raje, meanwhile, showered sops on Jhunjunu district. She claimed that her government will lay road network in entire district with a budget of Rs 910 crore. To ensure quality material be used for making roads, experts from BITS Pilani under third party inspection will test the material also. Sops for the day Adequate drinking water supply to Udaipurwati in next fortnight Laying of sewerage lines in Mawandiya and Dalmiya villagesSenior secondary schools in Chidawa, PilaniStreet light in entire Pilani in a month Launched Annapurna Van in Udaipurwati. PHED engineer on apoA PHED engineer was kept APO (awaiting for posting order) on direction of CM Raje as he failed to supply water to a mosque in Jhunjhunu for Vaju (practice of washing feet and hands) which Muslims do prior to Namaz. The devotees several times complained to the engineer Rajendra Kumar Agnihotri for poor supply of water. On Friday when people registered their grievances in CM Jan Sanwad Programme, Raje acted immediately and ordered his APO.

Om Prakash Galhotra takes over as new DGP

Ajit Singh, one of the illustrious police officers, ended his career on a high note when he retired on Thursday as the Director General of Police (DGP) after more than three decades of exemplary service.On the last day November, he handed over the reins of the state police to OP Galhotra who took over as the new DGP.Om Prakash Galhotra, 58, till yesterday was serving as the additional director general (ADG) of the armed battalions. Taking over the reins on Thursday evening, Galhotra was given the baton by his predecessor Ajit Singh. Notably, Galhotra was given a promotion on Thursday and made Director General from ADG.Interestingly, Galhotra also started his career from the same place where Ajit Singh had started – Kota. Apart from ASP Kota, Galhotra has served as SP Dholpur, Chittor, Bharatpur, Jodhpur and had a stint in the CBI as SP and later as Deputy Inspector General.Galhotra was later promoted to the rank of Inspector general wherein he served as IG Jaipur-I range and later as IG Jaipur – II range. He has also served as IG railways and as joint director CBI. As additional director general he was posted as director of the Rajasthan Police Academy and later of the armed battalion. It is from this position that the man had been promoted to the director general rank and made the DGP.About Singh: Known for his simple and straight forward approach towards any situation, Singh had mastery on police works. He has been instrumental in several achievement by state police during his illustrious career spanning three and a half decades. It was on 3rd April 1984 when he started his career as additional SP, Kota. For the next seven months he gained experience of police work as he served as a trainee and was moved further to the PHQ for additional training. It was in January 1985 when he got his first posting as CO of Rajgarh.Singh held several positions in 35 years of serving like SP of CID (Security) Kota Zone, Sirohi, CID, Jhalawar, Sawai Madhopur, Jaipur (Rural), Jodhpur, Jaipur (City).Though Singh had established himself as a hard working and thorough police officer, it was his experience gained in his early life while serving as SP Sawai Madhopur which prepared him for future roles. His stance on dacoits and successes in nabbing dacoits of the Chambal area made him a legend with the locals.Later on in the Anti Corruption Bureau, Singh not only took major steps against high-placed officials but also paved way for future ACB officials to easily emulate the same as he left behind a robust infrastructure and work ethics.Officers still swear by Singh’s work for ACB and claim it was his work that gave the bureau its “teeth and claw”.About GalhotraStarted career from Kota Apart from ASP Kota, Galhotra has served as SP Dholpur, Chittor, Bharatpur, Jodhpur and had a stint in the CBI as SP and later as Deputy Inspector General later promoted to the rank of Inspector general wherein he served as IG Jaipur-I range and later as IG Jaipur – II range.

Hawk flies in from Pak with ‘object’

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>A hawk fitted with a small “device” was spotted and captured near Sriganganagar town. This has sent shock ripples across the area. The device attached to the bird appears to be some sort of a transmitter. The authorities are planning to conduct an X-ray of it to ensure if any more smaller devices have been implanted into it.The hawk was spotted and captured in village 1V near Sriganganagar town when farmers working in the fields saw the hawk preying on a smaller bird. “The farmers noticed a shiny object attached to the bird. The Kesrisinghpura police was immediately informed,” said Ved Prakash lakhotiya, Station House Officer, Kesrisinghpura police station.Meanwhile, the information was shared with senior officials anmd other security agencies.“The device was removed and sent for investigation. An FSL investigation will reveal if any spying activities were being carried out. There are falconry games organised on the other side of border in which the hawk that goes farthest wins. There is a possibility of the device being used to keep track of the bird. However, an FSL report would clearly reveal nature of the device” the SHO informed.The bird was handed over to the Forest Department at Sriganganagar. There are plans to take the hawk to Bikaner. “We want to ensure that no chips or similar smaller devices are embedded inside the bird and for this an X-ray/scan is a must. Such an X-ray machine for veterinary purposes is available at Veterinary college at Bikaner and the bird will be sent there,” Lakhotiya said.

Bhansali has gone overboard with artistic licence: Shriji Arvind Singh Mewar

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>As protests against Padmavati movie are spreading across the nation, Shriji Arvind Singh Mewar of Udaipur has also jumped into the fray.Calling that Sanjay Leela Bhansali has gone “completely overboard” with artistic licence, Shriji said: “In February I had very clearly made my thoughts known in an interview in Mumbai that the film had not attained this kind of notoriety.”However, he called the manhandling Bhansali unfortunate and said: “We cannot condone such acts because they are not right and I said it then also.” “As far as the movie was concerned, as long as the Bollywood producers don’t distort the history of our family it should be alright. I said that I had similar the experience of when the serial Maharana Pratap was filmed. The living conditions in Mewar that whether during Maharana Pratap or Rawal Ratan Simnghji’s times were not depicted faithfully,” said Shriji.He said that Bhansali claims that he has shown great respect to Rajput pride and sensibilities.“I cannot comment without seeing the picture. However, the opulence shown in the trailer shows that the filmmaker is oblivious to the actual conditions that prevailed. Mewar was never a rich state and due to frequent attacks had to maintain a huge army. All the state money went into upkeep of the army, and not into providing Maharanis with huge palaces or wealth,” Shriji said.On the issue of Jauhar shown in the film, Shrijji said: “My feeling is that an issue like Jauhar was far too sensitive to be displayed on a cine screen without total understanding of what a Jauhar is. It’s not a game, it’s not a joke. This movie is a very ‘nindaniya’ (condemnable ) reflection of ‘naari asmita’ (female pride) of Chittor,” he further said.‘Janta Curfew’ on December 1In protest against Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s controversial film Padmavati, the Dharohar Bachao Samiti has announced “Janta Curfew” in Jaipur on December 1. The convener of the committee, Bharat Sharma, told that on December 1, the city of Jaipur will be completely closed. Only medical services will be kept out of the lock. Apart from this, Government-Private Offices, shops, school-college, bus and all other services will be closed. Many Hindu and Social organizations have supported the Band. It will be full successful off.

Ponzi scheme: SOG probes political links of main accused

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Did Manoranjan Roy, the accused in the Rs56 crore fraud, enjoy support from political parties and if so, which ones?These are some of the questions the SOG officials are trying to find an answer to. Interestingly, highly-placed sources in the department said that Roy has confessed to his closeness to stalwart politicians in West Bengal. “He has claimed closeness to politicians. However, whether they knew about his fraudulent practice or were involved in this has not come to light as yet. If any involvement comes to light an appropriate action would be taken,” officials said.But did Manoranjan Roy cook up the entire scheme on his own? Manoranjan Roy may look like the mastermind but the real brains of the organisation was his close confidante – Raghu Shetty, another accused arrested with Roy.Highly-placed sources said that Shetty was actually the mastermind behind the fraudulent schemes. “Shetty used to work on a managerial level post for a renowned bank prior to 2013. During this time, he got a letter of credit issued by copying the signature of a senior official for his own benefit. This resulted in a scam of crores. CBI investigated the issue and filed a chargesheet against Shetty,” officials said. Interestingly, the investigative teams even questioned Roy in the matter but in absence of any evidence against him, no action could be taken.However, from 2013 onwards, when Shetty lost his job, he started working for Roy and handled the accounts department. “It was he who thought of the entire schemes right down to the minute details. Right from where the money would come from and where it will go. Even the new and attractive schemes were being meticulously planned by Shetty,” sources said.And what of Rs 56 crore which investors deposited with the company and never got back? Interestingly, sources say that the man has claimed he would return the money. But is it the entire amount under the fraud. The SOG officials think otherwise. “So far we have looked into the account of just five branches from which the mammoth amount has come to light. There are six branches still left and the accounts of these would be investigated. We suspect the amount could swell to over hundred crores in Rajasthan,” officials said. And what about the remaining amount Rs 1500 crore? “The SOG will write to various state police in which the companies have operated to take action in the matter. Most branches were found in Uttar Pradesh while other areas where the branches were opened are Chattisgarh, Bihar etc,” officials said.

Ramniwas was let go for sometime on November 4 but not before they asked him to deposit twenty thousand rupees in an account for them,” said V K Singh, IG – ACB.The men however again pestered for easy money. “However, Ramniwas approached the ACB and registered a complaint. A bid to verify the same was initiated and on 5th November, the four cops took forty thousand rupees, thus verifying their demand while the remaining amount was to be handed on Monday,” the IG informed.“The men were staying at one Shiv Shakti hotel at Boranada in Jodhpur where they called Ramniwas with money. The man handed the money and signalled the team headed by deputy SP Jagdish Soni which immediately raided the place. The cash that was handed was recovered from between the bed and mattress while the cash handed during verification was also recovered. Thus, the men were arrested,” the official said.

Tech- savvy ‘bad boys’ expose soft underbelly of cops

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Instant messaging (IM) in all its forms has taken the world by storm and WattsApp is the favourite of millions for making real time calls. But the technology is proving to be a headache for Rajasthan police that makes them disadvantaged while tracing criminals and gangsters.Dreaded criminals and members of gangs are using encrypted chats to provide them secure interface and evade being tracked.The premier agencies of the state police, the Anti Terrorism Squad (ATS) and Special Operations group (SOG) had first faced this problem while they were in persuit of gangster Anand Pal Singh. But now almost every other criminal and gangster is using the IM.“The first time we came to realize the power of untraceability provided by IMs was while we were tracing Anand Pal. He used to contact his gang members on BBM. Later he started using other platforms too. However, after Anandpal encounter another fact that has come to light is a new distrust and caution among gangsters – they speak to their own gang members and sources on wattsapp video calls to ensure that he has not been arrested by the police. They want to be sure that the police is not using any arrested gang member to trace other members of the gang,” said a highly placed official in the state police on condition of anonymity.Whatsapp video calls are the safest bet as they give the the caller an advantage of looking at the surroundings of any person. “They use it as a sure shot means to ascertain that a particular gang member has not been nabbed by cops. Moreover, since these calls are made on the internet, it is a lengthy process to trace them and the time taken can be several days. This delay gives the gangsters the much needed time to change location of hiding,” the official said. He further added that “it is only after we get some gang member who has chatted with a criminal and did not delete the chat history that we can retrieve any information. This is one hurdle that we need to overcome soon.”RESORTING TO ENCRYPTED CHATSDreaded criminals and members of gangs are using encrypted chats to provide them secure interface and evade being tracked.

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The Pushkar fair which is popular for trade of live stock, this year will not see trade of equines and particularly horses.

The state has already seen the deaths of horses due to glanders in Dholpur and Udaipur districts already.The Pushkar animal fair sees a huge number of horses, particularly the Marwari and Kathiawari breed. Breeders as far as Punjab, Gujarat and even Maharashtra come to the fair for sale or purchase of the Indian horse breeds. However due to the glanders outbreak, a restriction has been imposed.”Some time back a case came to light in Dholpur and then at Udaipur. The decision has been made to not allow horses at the fair so that the disease does not spread which is fatal for animals. The orders would stand in effect till the time the authorities are sure that the disease has died out completely in the area,” said Ajay Kumar Gupta , Director of animal husbandry department.The infamy of the disease can be gauged from the fact that an Act is dedicated to just the disease, called the Glanders and Farcy Act. “The latest outbreak is a result of mules being used in brick kilns at Uttar Pradesh. The mules were brought back to Dholpur here the first case was reported in recent times. It then spread to Udaipur and Rajsamand. The disease spreads from equines to humans hence it is very dangerous. An incident was reported in Kishangarh last mont,h” said Bhawani Singh Rathore, additional director, animal husbandry department.The animal husbandry department has made an appeal to breeders and equine keepers to abide by the orders as it is in their benefit.

Jaipur man missing in capsize off Philippines

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>A Jaipur-based person, working as a chief engineer in a shipping company, has gone missing along with nine others after the vessel carrying a crew of 26 Indians capsized in the Pacific off the Philippines. The over 33000-tonne vessel was carrying nickel ore as cargo which may have liquified leading to the incident. The Search and Rescue (SAR) team has rescued 16 crew members.The missing chief engineer, identified as Shyam Singh, is a native of Tamkore village in Jhunjhunu district and currently a resident of Jhotwara area of the city. Speaking to DNA, Shyam Singh’s brother, Sher Singh, himself a captain in Merchant Navy, said, “The Ship was sailing from Indonesia to China with nickel ore. It is a dangerous cargo which shifts on its own. Probably that resulted in the capsizing of the vessel.”Nickel ore is the deadliest dry bulk commodity that is shipped by sea. As a cargo that turns to the slurry during a voyage, nickel ore causes many vessels to capsize. The International Association of Dry Cargo Shipowners states that ore is at a high risk of liquefying if it holds too much moisture.The incident occurred around 2 am on October 13. “The weather was rough. We have learned from the rescued crew members that everyone was wearing life jackets. Though the weather was bad for the last two days, it is improving now and we have made a written appeal to the Maritime Rescue Coordination Centre to continue the search operation aggressively,” Sher Singh said.Notably, the Japanese Coast Guard received the distress signal of the vessel when it was about 280 km east of Philippines. Bulk carriers Densa Cobra and SM Samarinda rescued 11 and 5 crew members respectively. With the weather clearing out after two days, the search would be intensified, Shyam Singh’s family members echoed.DEADLIEST BULKNickel ore is the deadliest dry bulk commodity that is shipped by sea.

SOG probe reveals crude oil theft worth crores

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Three days of questioning of the mastermind in the crude oil theft from Barmer has brought various other facts to light. The SOG has learnt that the operation was carried out in a professional manner and those involved even earned crores of rupees in the entire scheme. During questioning of the accused Bhoor Singh, the SOG team learnt that though several oils are locked by companies, there are a few oils from which resources are drawn and transported through tankers. “When the resources are drawn from these wells, water, crude oil and even gas comes out. The gas is in less amount and is burnt on the spot, while the crude oil would be separated. This would then be transported,” sources said.Interestingly, Bhoor Singh has claimed that he got about Rs22 per litre of crude. “The number of tankers reaching daily at Bhoor Singh’s tyre oil factory varied, but on an average, at least one tanker with carrying capacity of 10-15 thousand litre- reached daily. He has claimed that he used to get crude at the rate of Rs22 per litre when he sold the oil to his clients. However, we suspect that the amount is more than he has claimed. This could have been done to misguide the SOG,” sources said.Meanwhile, the SOG obtained a further seven-day remand of Bhoor Singh on Tuesday and took him to Barmer for further investigation. “Although he has confessed a few things, but the same cannot be accepted on its face value and needs to be thoroughly checked. Also, evidence in this regard needs to be taken. The team is expected to come back in a few days time after concluding investigation of questions at hand,” sources said.TO MISGUIDE“He has claimed that he used to get crude at the rate of Rs22 per litre when he sold the oil to his clients.

Western desertland welcomes Houbara Bustard a little early

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The desert areas of Jaisalmer and Barmer districts harbor varied wildlife and avifauna. Though plenty of animals and birds like the state bird Great Indian Bustard and state animal Chinkara are present in the area, winters bring a new lease of life to the desert grassland when migratory birds abound here.One of these migratory birds is the Houbara Bustard locally called Tilore. A bird of the desert grasslands, the sightings of Houbara Bustard increases as winters reach their peak. But an interesting development has occurred, which is baffling the forest officials. The expected arrival time of this eye-catchy bird is winters but breaking the cycle, flocks of Houbara have started reaching the Indian side of the Thar desert.On Saturday, a few of these silvery Bustards were seen at Sam sand dunes near Jaisalmer by forest officials which have now sparked a debate amongst conservationists who are seeing this as a unique development.“It might not appear to be a major development to the layman but for conservationists and environmentalist, this has rung the alarm. Animal and bird migration depends on season and one can gauge from their movement if the season, in general, would be good or bad. For scientists, it brings a lot of interest as this is one of the aspects that they study that is the change in animal and bird behaviour with effect to global warming” said Tejvir Singh, retired IFS.Houbara Bustard numbers are dwindling fast due to falconry being practiced in Pakistan and other areas of its territory. “Its meat is considered a delicacy and thus falcons are used as a sport to hunt these birds. Also, poaching of these birds is conducted in Jaisalmer and Barmer areas by villagers as well. The forest department tries to nab such men but due to the immense expanse of the territory, it is a tough job” a forest official said requesting anonymity.Breaking the cycleOne of these migratory birds is the Houbara Bustard locally called Tilore.
