<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Traffic constable Shashank Rane, who was suspended after he got a car towed in which a woman was breastfeeding her seven-month-old child in Malad, has told his department that he did not anticipate that towing a vehicle with a woman and child inside “was legally or morally not a correct thing to do”. The department has made it clear that Rane’s suspension was just interim action, and that he could be liable for departmental action. Two other local police constables are being quizzed in the case.”Prima-facie, the constable was at fault by towing vehicle with a woman inside. He tried to do whatever he could before towing. However, towing of vehicles with woman inside could not be justified by any stretch of the imagination,” said a police officer, who is privy to the inquiry.The officer added, “Constable’s anticipation on what he was doing went wrong. His justification was that he did not anticipate that it would go this way. He did not know what else to do at that time. As per the constable, he did not anticipate what he was doing was legally not correct and just thought to take the woman to the police station.”Senior officers within the department feel that the woman should have been proceeded against legally but not by towing the vehicle. “The constable should have called a police inspector from the chowky or should have called female staff and taken immediate action. The vehicle could not have been towed with the lady.”As per sources in the department, the report in the matter which is being a Deputy Commissioner of Police-rank officer is likely to be submitted within a week’s time. “There were so many people at the spot when the incident happened. The report will comprise their statements as to what they had witnessed were. The responsibility of the other two constables, too, have to be fixed. We have also reached out to the woman involved,” the source said.Asked about what more action the suspended cop could face, the officer said, “Speaking technically, suspension is not a punishment; it’s an interim action. A departmental decision is yet to be taken. It would not be appropriate to comment on the punishment before the report is given. We are planning to issue a circular on how to ensure these things are not repeated again in future,” said the source.

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>A 40-year-old Madhya Pradesh Police Head Constable saved lives of 100 children and many other villagers when he carried a bomb found in the backyard of a school over his shoulder and disposed it off far away from human habitation.The incident took place in Chitora village of Sagar district, nearly 170 kilometres from the state capital. The unexploded bomb, which apparently got there from the nearby firing range in Chitora weighed about 10 kgs. However, Head Constable Abhishek Patel, without worrying about his life carried the heavy bomb, placed it over his shoulder and disposed it off away from the village. It was only after this that he followed the usual drill of informing his seniors and calling the bomb disposal squad.Talking to DNA over phone, Satyendra Shukla, SP Sagar district said, “Head Constable Abhishek Patel was on Police Control Van duty when he got a call about a bomb in the backyard of a school in Chitora. He immediately rushed to the spot. He picked up the bomb and ran with it as fast as he could. He disposed it at a place far away from the village.”Even as Patel’s seniors in the department are appreciating what he did, they are not happy with the way he handled the situation. “He should have first informed the bomb disposal squad and followed the proper drill. There was a lot of risk involved in taking the bomb away with bare hands,” the Superintendent of Police said.Talking about the incident, Patel told DNA that his intention was only to take it away from the residential area and had the bomb exploded, buildings and people within an area of at least 500 meters would have been affected. He said, “My only objective was to carry the bomb as far away as possible from the school and the residential area.”As the unexploded bomb was from an army range nearby, standard protocol was followed later on and the bomb was finally diffused on Sunday.According to the police officials, the bomb must have been placed there by some villager who went in search of metal from the exploded bomb but instead found this unexploded one, which would have been useless for the villager. Villagers in the area usually look for exploded bombs so that they can extract metal from it and sell them of in the market.

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>In 2000, Head Constable Radhey Shyam, one of the first batch of buglers to be inducted in the Delhi Police band, had landed the position after 17 years of rigorous practice. Understandably, for the grand tradition that began during the British era has been going on uninterrupted since then, and is a matter of pride for the department.The buglers might not be visible on the streets patrolling or at police stations but they play an essential role in shaping up of newly inducted police officers. From playing the bugle as an alarm clock to wake up the personnel to warning about tragedies and meal timings, the buglers have multiple roles to play.Shedding light on the history of the tradition, DCP Kamla Meena said the Delhi Police band was launched in 1936 by JA Scott, the then SSP of Delhi. The initial strength of the band was two head constables and 27 constables, drawn from the Armed Reserve. They were accommodated at the New Delhi police station.These men were so trained as to be available for armed police duties during emergencies. In 1950, it was ordered that the band would play approved English tunes. Only those Indian tunes that were allowed by the SSP were played.Earlier, the buglers were a part of the same band as that of the paramilitary forces. Only much later, by 2000, the Delhi Police started indicting them separately. Head Constables Shyam and Nitin Sharma were also inducted in the same year. Shyam, whose elder brother used to play harmonium, practised for years to earn a place as a bugler with the Delhi Police.”Apart from playing the instrument, we also need to make sure that our uniform is crisp. Once we wear the uniform, we can’t sit as the crease will be spoiled,” Nitin said. He hails from a family of police officers, including his grandmother and father, who have also been a part of the band.As of now, the Delhi Police have 50 buglers. Assistant Sub-Inspector Satya Prakash, who is in-charge of the buglers, was inducted in 1986. “The buglers need to be ready and up before anyone else. They play during the fall-in of officers, physical training time, parade, mess call, retreat, and on occasions when an officer passes away, and general salute,” an officer said.

The Pandits have alleged foul play in the disappearance of the cop in view of increasing militancy in the Valley. Hundreds of Kashmiri Pandit migrants from Nagrota and Jagti camps thronged the highway and held anti-government and anti-police protest for their laxity in the case.

Accordingly, a missing report was lodged in the police station Shergari at Srinagar in the case. Police said the matter was being probed from all angles, adding that marine commandos of the navy were also pressed into service along with the police to trace the officer. But the Pandit community has failed to buy the police’s argument and is calling for an SIT probe into the matter. “We demand a probe into the mysterious disappearance of constable Sameer Kumar as there seems some foul play in the circumstances of his sudden disappearance. Police has failed to trace him till now and is providing vague statements. Police should trace him immediately,” All Party Migrants Coordination Committee (APMCC) national spokesperson, King C Bharti said.

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>In a veiled attack on Narendra Modi, the Congress today said he has time to visit the Kedarnath shirne in a “fashionable” robe but none to say a word or meet bereaved families of the two soldiers who were beheaded by Pakistani forces in Jammu and Kashmir. Addressing a press conference here, the opposition leader Shankersinh Vaghela said that for the RSS and the BJP “nation comes after person and party, contrary to the claims made by both the outfits”. Without naming Modi, he said “He has no shame in his body language, speech or behaviour. He goes to inaugurate a private company’s facility and visits Kedarnath temple in a fashionable robe. But (he) does not say a word or meet bereaved families of the (two) soldiers”. The prime minister today paid obeisance at the Kedarnath temple as the portals of the eighth century shrine in Garhwal Himalayas were thrown open to devotees after their closure for winters. He also inaugurated a research institute at yoga guru Baba Ramdev’s Patanjali Yogpeeth in Haridwar. In Gujarat, the home state of Modi, the Congress today held the candlelight march at some district headquarters as a tribute to the slain soldiers. Vaghela said the Congress will organise a state-wide condolence meeting in Ahmedabad tomorrow in the memory of Naib Subedar Paramjeet Singh of 22 Sikh Infantry and Head Constable Prem Sagar of 200th Battalion of BSF. “We will also take out a silent bike rally in Ahmedabad tomorrow to pay tribute to the soldiers decapitated by the Pakistani army,” he said. Accusing the prime minister of “marketing” the surgical strikes in the PoK, Vaghela said, “He (Modi) set aside all principles to join hands with the PDP to form government in J&K. He visited Pakistan to greet (prime minister) Nawaz Sharif on his birthday, without caring about the soldiers being killed by Pakistani army.” He also took a swipe at the Centre over absence of a “full-time defence minister”. “Kashmir is slipping out of our hand, terror activities are at their peak, and soldiers are being killed nearly every day, but the BJP-led central government does not even have a leader who can be made full-time Defence minister. In the name of nationalism, they are fooling the nation,” he said. Stating that people of the country want action, Vaghela said the government should deliver on its promises, which the BJP made before the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, of giving a befitting reply to Pakistan.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Amid mounting anger against Pakistan for mutilating bodies of two soldiers, Army chief General Bipin Rawat asked the troops to remain vigilant and thwart any misadventure from other side of line of control (LoC).“The Army Chief impressed upon all to remain vigilant and thwart any misadventure from across especially now as the summer sets in. During his interaction with troops, the General reassured them that the entire nation stood behind its soldiers in their brave endeavours to safeguard country’s sovereignty and integrity and maintain peace in the Valley”, said a defence spokesman quoting General Rawat.The statement comes a day after Pakistan army’s Border Action Team mutilated the bodies of Border Security Force Head Constable Prem Sagar and Naib Subedar Paramjit Singh after they violated the sanctity of the LoC and crossed into Indian side in the Krishna Ghati sub sector of Poonch on Monday.General Rawat, who on his second day of tour visited the frontier areas of north Kashmir and interacting with the troops and commanders deployed on Line of Control.

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>More than 24 hours after the Mianwali Nagar shootout, police is yet to make any headway in the case in which three person, including a Delhi Police assistant sub-inspector was killed. The family of Monu Dariyapur, who was shot dead, along with the policeman and his friend, has demanded a probe into the role of the constable who sustained injuries to his arm. Police also questioned for several hours, Mohan Mittal who had given his Paschim Vihar house to Monu for staying. However, he did not charge any rent from Monu for the property, which is an expensive one, sources said. Either, he enjoyed a very good relationship with Monu or the deceased, an alleged criminal, had threatened him over something is what the police is probing, they added. While police is primarily focussing on the honour killing theory, they are also exploring other angles. Police have claimed that this may be a case of honour killing, as Bhupendra had married, Rajrani, the sister of Sonu Dariyapur. Monu and Sonu were friends but had a fallout after the former married the latter’s sister. Since Monu and Rajrani belonged to the same village, the elders were of the view that they are siblings. Sonu had allegedly threatened Monu on previous occasions and had once even tried to kill Monu and his wife before. Several teams of the Special Cell and local police are working on the case and around 20 people have been questioned without any success so far. Around 11 PM on Sunday, Dariyapur, Arun along with the police personnel were seated inside a car when a group of men attacked them. Constable Kuldeep somehow managed to run away and was chased for a few metres and sustained bullet injuries to his arm. Monu’s family has alleged that he had joined them around 15 days back and was quite inquisitive. The constable might be questioned in detail to know the sequence of events and his fleeing away from the spot.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)
<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Mutilating the bodies of two soldiers was “a dastardly and inhuman” act that merited unequivocal response, the Indian Army told Pakistan in a strongly worded statement in an emotive day of tears at the lives lost and a categorical denial from Islamabad. As the families of Naib Subedar Paramjeet Singh and BSF Head Constable Prem Singh bid them farewell, Pakistan denied India’s allegations of ceasefire violation and mutilation, ensuring that the troubled equation between the two neighbours was back in the national spotlight with cries of a “befitting reply” being heard once again. India’s Director General of Military Operations (DGMO) Lt Gen A K Bhatt spoke to his Pakistani counterpart this morning to express his “grave concern” about the killing and beheading of the two soldiers in the Krishna Ghati sector of Poonch in Jammu and Kashmir yesterday. “The DGMO of the Indian Army conveyed that such a dastardly and inhuman act is beyond any norms of civility and merits unequivocal condemnation and response,” the Indian Army said in a statement. The DGMO conveyed to his Pakistani counterpart that “full fire” support was provided by the Pakistani Army post located close to where the incident took place. The army said the DGMO also conveyed India’s concern about the presence of Border Action Team (BAT) training camps in close vicinity of the Line of Control (LoC) in Pakistan- Occupied Kashmir. Discussing the issue during the hotline contact between the two DGMOs, the Pakistan Army asked India to produce “actionable evidence” on its claim that a Pakistani special forces team had sneaked across the LoC and beheaded the two Indian security personnel. “Pakistan rejected India’s allegations of ceasefire violation and mutilation of bodies of Indian soldiers,” the army statement said. “The Pakistan army is a professional military outfit and upholds the highest standards of conduct. Allegations of mutilation are an Indian attempt to divert the attention of world from situation within the Kashmir valley,” Pakistan DGMO Maj Gen Sahir Shamshad Mirza claimed. The denials had little impact at Vainpoin village in Punjab, where 42-year-old Paramjeet Singh was laid to rest with full military honours. As buglers sounded the “last post” and his body, wrapped in the tricolour, was brought for cremation, his relatives insisted that they be shown the body. Finally, the ceremony went ahead after civil and army officials intervened. His wife Paramjit Kaur demanded that the Centre give a “free hand” to the army so that Pakistan is taught a lesson. “Our government had once said that if Pakistan kills or beheads our one soldier, as many as ten enemy soldiers will meet the same fate, but what is happening now? If the government cannot teach Pakistan a lesson, then they should allow me to take revenge of my husband’s killing,” she said. While “shaheed Paramjeet amar rahe” cries echoed in the air so did slogans “Pakistan murdabad”. Pakistani flags were also burnt at some places in Punjab, including at Ludhiana, where protesters demanded that Pakistan should be paid back in the same coin. Defence Minister Arun Jaitley had a meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi during which the beheading issue is understood to have figured. However, there was no official word on it. Former defence minister and senior Congress leader A K Antony echoed the anguish and told reporters that the army should be given a “free hand” to act against those behind the mutilation of the two soldiers. Paying tribute to the two soldiers at the New Delhi airport, where the body of Prem Sagar was brought before being taken to his home in Uttar Pradesh, Minister of State for Home Kiren Rijiju said, “The nation is with the families of the soldiers who lost their lives in ceasefire violation by the Pakistan army.” Union Urban Development Minister M Venkaiah Naidu told reporters, “We are very firm, we will do whatever is possible and the government is already at it.” The incident, marking yet another low in the fractured India-Pakistan relationship, comes about six months after an Indian Army soldier was killed and his body mutilated close to the LoC in the Machil sector on October 28 last year. In January 2013, Lance Naik Hemraj was killed and his body mutilated by the BAT. It had also beheaded Lance Naik Sudhakar Singh. Constable Rajinder Singh of the BSF suffered injuries in the attack. In June 2008, a soldier of the 2/8 Gorkha Rifles lost his way and was captured by the BAT in Kel sector. His body was found beheaded after a few days.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)

And as Rahul Ghadge was to learn one day, could also be the cause of his father’s demise if he did not receive a transplant in time.A few days after recovering from dengue, Bramhadev Ghadge, Head Constable, Motor Transport Department, Mumbai Police, developed digestion issues, nausea and joint pains. While initially he put it down to part of his recovery from dengue, he was later diagnosed with decompensated cirrhosis. Liver transplant was the only option for the 53-year-old.While registering for a cadaver organ, Rahul learned it could take upto two years for his father to get an organ. “His condition was deteriorating, and doctors advised that a transplant had to be done within four months,” says Rahul.His eventual decision to be a live liver donor to his father was met with huge opposition at home. Experts say this is due to lack of awareness on the issue.“My parents were averse to the idea with me being their only child. The counsellors explained to them that liver possesses the remarkable capacity to regenerate. About 60 per cent of the organ is transplanted and it grows back in six months and I could carry on with my regular life without any complications,” says the 26-year-old Instrumentation Engineer.After reclaiming his life, Ghadge senior and his son do all they can to spread awareness and are even called by the Fortis Hospital, Mulund, where the procedure was performed, to counsel and guide other families. “In India, the number of living organ donors is quite low. I hope that more people realise how important this is,” Rahul says.

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Karan Singh lost his 17-year-old daughter, Bulbul, to an electric shock from a high-tension line passing just inches above the terrace of his single-storey residence. He was still struggling to recover from the terrible tragedy when he lost another relative the same way. In a neighbouring house, a panicky Sita Devi does not allow her children to go to the terrace. “I keep the door to the terrace locked. In the last 11 years that I have been living here, I have seen so many deaths and accidents that I do not want to take any risk,” she says.The 66KVA high-tension line continues to terrorise hundreds of residents of Patel Nagar in Gurugram nearly two years after Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar ordered the municipal corporation to bear the cost of its realignment.“We don’t understand why the administration is not complying with the directive. The delay in the realignment process is fatal. We are living a perilous life here,” resident Deepchand Chaudhary says.On May 8, 2015, during a District Level Grievance Meeting, CM Khattar had announced that the line will be realigned. The entire cost was to be borne by the Municipal Corporation of Gurugram (MCG).When asked about the delay, MCG Additional Commissioner Amit Khatri said: “It is a hefty amount. We are waiting for written orders from the headquarters. Once we receive the order in writing, the MCG will start the work.”A letter notified to the MCG Commissioner by the Haryana Vidyut Prasaran Nigam Limited, a Haryana government undertaking, stated that the realignment process was going to cost approximately Rs 4.10 crore.“More than 70 people have died in the last decade alone and yet the MCG is ignoring the sensitive issue,” says Abhay Jain, Convener, Manav Awaaz Sanstha.Meanwhile, unaware of the official proceedings, resident Vimla Devi is worried for another reason. “When my children were young, it was not so difficult. But now they are married and we need more space in our house. We cannot construct another storey as the high-tension wire passes just above our terrace,” she says.As if this was not enough, as many as five houses that the DNA team visited had electric poles inside them. A tormented Singh, who lost his daughter because of the administration’s apathy, says: “The man who sold me the land assured me that the wires above had no power. It was only after my daughter died that I realised the danger above our heads.” Retired Police Constable D K Yadav, who has been living in the area since 1984, says: “The Cyber City is a big hoax. Look, how big the fundamental civic issues are here. I pay my taxes. Am I not entitled to the district administration’s services?”
