Gangster nabbed for mass rapes, extortion

A notorious gangster, responsible for the plight of hundreds of families, has been nabbed by the Delhi Police. One of the dreaded duo that ran the gang, Hussain, a resident of village Tayda in Bharatpur, was brought to Delhi two days ago.According to the Delhi Police investigation, the gang of two first lured businessmen in the name of attractive deals on electronic and other products, and a holiday trip around Delhi. They would then kidnap the victims, take them to Mewat and get them raped and sodomised by locals. This sexual abuse was filmed to extort money. The gang operated in Haryana and Rajasthan, and had made Delhi a transit place. The cops are now trying to identity and approach the victims and retrieve videos of sexual abuse. According to the police, the gang would give advertisements on vernacular websites and in dailies in Gujarat, Rajasthan, and Madhya Pradesh claiming that it sold electronic items in bulk at cheap prices. “Thereafter, the gangsters would call and mail local businessmen in these states and tempt them with attractive deals,” a police officer said, adding that once the businessmen were convinced, they were offered a holiday trip, along with their family members, to Delhi and nearby areas.After trapping the businessmen and their families, the gang would take the victims to Mewat. “The kidnapped businessmen were sodomised, their wives and daughters raped by local youths, teenagers, and other gang members, and this sexual abuse was filmed. Hussain and his accomplice Hasan would also demand ransom from their families, ranging from Rs 20-50 lakh,” the police officer said. The families were told that if they approached the police, the videos would be uploaded on the adult websites.

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.

Give a long-term comprehensive plan for protection of Taj Mahal: SC to stakeholders

The Supreme Court today sought a detailed and comprehensive document to protect the medieval era monument Taj Mahal for at least the next 100 years.Terming as “ad hoc”, the measures enumerated by the Taj Trapezium Zone (TTZ) authority in its affidavit, a bench headed by Justice M B Lokur said the document submitted was interim in nature and some long-term plan was needed for protection and preservation of the historical Mughal-era mausoleum. TTZ is an area of about 10,400 sq kms spread over the districts of Agra, Firozabad, Mathura, Hathras and Etah in Uttar Pradesh and Bharatpur in Rajasthan.”What you (ASG) have submitted are ad hoc steps. What is required is a larger and broader perspective of the whole scenario. Everybody needs to sit together and come out with ways as to how the monument should be protected for the next generation,” the bench observed. The apex court said the members from the civil society including experts should be involved in devising a strategy to protect the Taj Mahal.Also readTaj Mahal 2nd best UNESCO world heritage site after Angkor Wat: SurveyDuring the hearing, Additional Solicitor General (ASG) Tushar Mehta placed an affidavit stating the measures to be taken for the protection and preservation of the Taj. He said a number of measures have been proposed including ban on construction activities within 500 metres from the monument, plying of only CNG vehicles near Taj, sufficient supply of electricity to discourage use of generator sets and complete prohibition of burning of waste and garbage. The top court posted the matter for hearing after eight weeks. On November 20, the apex court had rapped the Uttar Pradesh government for not coming out with a comprehensive policy to protect and preserve the beauty of Taj Mahal, saying “we need sustainable development”.The bench had also asked TTZ authority to explain why it was not holding meetings every two months as was expected. On November 15, the apex court had directed the state to file a comprehensive policy with regard to pollution in TTZ and nearby areas to preserve the monument.Also read’There’s only one Taj Mahal’: Supreme Court nixes plan for parking lot near monumentIt had taken strong exception to the state not filing a comprehensive policy before it despite assurances. The state had said that a policy has been prepared by the TTZ, which was an independent authority. It had earlier stayed its order directing demolition of a multi-level car parking being built near the Taj Mahal and asked the authorities to maintain status quo there.Environmentalist M C Mehta, who had filed a plea seeking protection of the Taj from the ill-effects of polluting gases and deforestation in and around the area, had earlier told the bench that the TTZ was an “ecologically sensitive area” and the government should have come out with a comprehensive policy for preservation and protection of the Taj.The apex court, which is dealing with Mehta’s petition, has been monitoring development in the area to protect the Taj Mahal, built by Mughal emperor Shah Jahan in the memory of his wife Mumtaz Mahal in 1631. The mausoleum is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

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.

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.

Alwar lynching: Deceased Umar had history of cow-smuggling, says police

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Umar Khan, who was recently killed in an exchange of fire with alleged cow vigilantes at Alwar in Rajasthan, had a history of cow-smuggling and his accomplice Tahir, who was injured in the incident, was a habitual offender, the police said today.There were five-six cases against Tahir in Bharatpur and Dausa districts of Rajasthan and one case of cow-smuggling against Umar at the Govindgarh police station of Alwar, which was registered in 2012, Alwar SP Rahul Prakash said. The past crime records of another accomplice of the duo, Javed, were yet to be ascertained, he said, adding that the police in the neighbouring states were asked to check the criminal antecedents of the trio.Mool Singh Rana, Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP), Alwar, said on November 10, Umar, Tahir and Javed were ferrying cattle in a stolen vehicle, which had a number plate of a motorbike.There was an exchange of fire between the trio and alleged cow vigilantes at Alwar, in which Umar died, Tahir received injuries, while Javed managed to flee, the police said. Umar’s body was found on the railway tracks at Ramgarh in Alwar district. His relatives and social activists subsequently alleged that he was killed by cow vigilantes. The incident was also dubbed as a re-run of the Pehlu Khan lynching, which was reported from the state in April.Sources at the Sawai Man Singh (SMS) Hospital here said the post-mortem of Umar’s body was yet to be performed.Meanwhile, the family members of the deceased and social activists took out a “justice march” today from the Muslim Musafirkhana to the chief minister’s residence here, demanding an appropriate action against those found guilty in the case.

Bovine smuggling scrapes past porous border of vigilantism

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>It’s nothing new. The porous border of Alwar is known for illegal cow trafficking for years. But lethal attacks on ‘cow smugglers’ are a new phenomena. The recent killing of 35-year-old Umar Khan is just part of an episode which has come into being after 2014 – the year BJP came into power at centre. According to police sources, before 2014, less than 30 cases of cow smuggling would come to light. “But since 2014, every year, more than 100 cases are being registered for bovine smuggling besides sporadic cases of deadly attacks on alleged smugglers. The infamous killing of dairy farmer Pehlu Khan, 6 months ago, was one of those cases only,” said a senior police official.Human Rights Watch has also reported that there has been a surge in cow vigilante violence since 2015. The Supreme Court in September 2017 has ruled that each state should appoint a police officer in each district as a nodal officer to take strict action against cow vigilantism.Mewat – The Hot BedIt’s not that the Mewat region – comprising Alwar and Bharatpur districts – has maximum number of cows in the state. But then it is hub of illegal trade of cows and other bovine progenies. Animals from across the state are transported to Alwar and Bharatpur – which are gateways to the National Capital region – the largest mandi of slaughterhouses. The unique population composition of these two districts help the trade. Meo tribes people and nomadic tribes like Banjaras and Nats are castes known to be deeply involved in trafficking cattle. Bovines including cows that have stopped giving milk sold to slaughterhouses for Rs 20,000-25,000 as along with the meat, the skin fetches high returns. The thriving leather industry in Delhi NCR, Kanpur and Agra is the biggest attraction for these smugglers to take the bait. “The modus operandi is simple. Village panchayat members help smugglers by issuing fake certificates that say that the cattle are being sent for use in dairy initiatives if smugglers prefer to play it safe. Otherwise they camouflage the carrier and try their luck to sneak past the border,” said an official.Don’t Blame Cow Vigilantes alwaysEarlier this practice was common and successful. Natives of Mewat indulged in this activity would earn lakhs from this illegal trade worth 100 of crores. But BJP governments, both at centre and state, have led to sudden spring of self proclaimed cow vigilante groups who are getting more active than the police of this region. As per an estimate, there are more than 50,000 gau rakshaks in the state who keep exchanging information about cattle smuggling incidents.“You can’t always blame cow vigilantes for the attacks. There are several ‘smuggler gangs’ in this region. Inter gang rivalries lead to such incidents. There have been cases where a gang loots truck load of bovines from the other after ‘gangwar’,” said a police official.Law bans Cow slaughter in StateThe prevalence of cow smuggling in Rajasthan is also because of an ACT which bans cow slaughter in the state. In 1995, the state government had prohibited cow slaughtering by passing the Rajasthan Bovine Animal (Prohibition of Slaughter and Regulation of Temporary Migration or Export) Act.“Since unproductive and abandoned cows can’t be killed in the state. They have to be transported outside the state for the kill. Smugglers and peddlers then come into play,” said a senior official of home department.STRICT ACTIONThe Supreme Court in September 2017 has ruled that each state should appoint a police officer in each district as a nodal officer to take strict action against cow vigilantism.
Human Rights Watch has also reported that there has been a surge in cow vigilante violence since 2015.

She strictly told the IAS officer that waste water should be treated at plant only and the waste should be stopped from flowing into Hans Sarovar Dam.Alwar, a bypoll bound parliamentary constituency, once again saw Raje being proactive to the issues raised by the people. When apprised of deputation of two doctors from Govindgarh Hospital to Alwar district hospital, the CM immediately asked health officers to leave Govindgarh. She also gave consent to proposal of converting Alwar- Ramgarh road into four lanes under National Highway authority of India (NHAI).A group of Meo community gathered at CM Jan Sanwad program also expressed trust in the CM, says a statement released by the chief minister office (CMO). “The Meo community thanked the CM for a panorama on Veer Hasan Khan.

I am closely following the case and all the accused in the matter will be arrested. One person has been arrested till now. It is my duty to arrest the criminals” said Gulab Chand Katariya, Home Minister.

Royalty of 42 minerals increased by 25-30%

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Royalty rates for 42 miner minerals have been increased by 25 to 30%. Department of mines issued a notification to this effect on Friday.The increased rates are likely to bring additional revenue of Rs 100 crore to the department’s kitty.

Senior BJP leader Digamber Singh breathes his last

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Senior BJP strongman Digamber Singh passed away on Friday morning at the age of 66 after prolonged illness. The news of his demise came as a shock for the party members in the state and Rajasthan CM Vasundhara Raje. Singh was entrusted with the responsibility of twenty point programme vice-chairman, while he was health minister during Raje’s previous tenure as CM.Singh, was admitted at a private hospital in Jaipur on October 18 for swine flu. Thought the doctors claim to have cured flu, a long history of cancer and hypertension resulted in several medical complications and eventually caused his death from multiple organ failure.He was cremated later in the evening at his provenance district of Bharatpur amid a huge gathering of supporters and senior BJP leaders. Political leaders beyond party and state borders condoled his death, while Prime Minister Narendra Modi sent wreath, CM Raje personally condoled his family at the hospital.A prominent Jat face for the party, trustworthy for chief minister Raje, Digamber Singh to have graduated as doctor from government medical college of Jodhpur was, however, more popular as ‘doctor sahab’ among his supporters. It was more because that despite being a politician he never distanced himself from medical practice. “He was always a doctor at heart,” remembers a former school time friend, Dr LC Sharma.Born of October 1, 1951 at a village in Bharatpur district, Digamber Singh was a brilliant student, also fond of music and singing. A person who will not miss a chance to sing on stage during his college days. He never displayed political aspirants during his college days and was practicing as a doctor till 40s when a sequence of events inspired him to take up politics as a cause.At politics too he displayed brilliance and within a decade of stepping in the field, he got elected from Deeg-Kumher assembly constituency and was appointed as the health minister. His tenure as a health minister is known for relatively less friction between health department and doctors. He will also be remembered to have got passed the bill to ensure safety of medical practitioners at hospitals. He consecutively won the seat in next election despite the anti-incumbency wave in state. He still continued to practice and was seen diagnosing senior party leader Ghanshyam Tiwari while he developed complication during an assembly session.He even went diagnosing patients outside SMS hospital while the resident doctors were on strike during the tenure of Ashok Gehlot.
