Cops use baton to curb agitators in Udaipur

Day after prohibitory orders were clamped in Udaipur and Rajsamand districts with threat of massive protests – particularly in Udaipur city – the orders did little to maintain law and order in the city.

Interestingly, sources revealed that majority of the protesters were not from Udaipur but had landed in the city in the wake of the agitation.Since morning, people started gathering in the town hall ground and by afternoon the numbers had swelled substantially. People raising slogans for Shambhu Lal – the man who murdered Afrazul – reached the bus stand and then to Chetak circle.Since the administration had already imposed prohibitory orders, the police started dispersing the crowd. However, as the people tried to put a resistance, the cops retaliated and resorted to baton charge. The protestors even pelted stones at the cops. When the cops retaliated, the agitators ran away and tried to find a sanctuary in the houses but the alert cops found them and arrested them.However, the issue flared up after protesters entered the court premises. This resulted in a clash between cops and lawyers. The police took out a route march from Chetak circle to Court circle and the Inspector general and Superintendent of Police (SP) themselves took control.Meanwhile, the cops arrested at least 50 persons and additional forces were deployed to avoid any eventuality. Meanwhile, the ban on internet services was further extended for the next 24 hours. Four police officers were injured in the scuffle.Held in CityAfter the video of Updesh Rana, a native of UP, went viral wherein the man was seen giving support to murder accused Shambhu Lal while calling for a protest in Udaipur, the state police was on its toes in order to halt Rana’s advance towards Udaipur.

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>A 15-year-old girl in Maharashtra’s Latur district has alleged that she was raped by an Army jawan, and when she lodged a police case, she was expelled from her school.The district administration has ordered an inquiry into the incident.”Initial information suggests that the girl was not expelled by the school but was given the transfer certificate on her brother’s request,” Latur district collector G Shrikant told PTI.”I have called the headmaster of the school to find out details,” the IAS officer said.

Go to Maharashtra Administrative Tribunal for leave: Bombay HC tells cop seeking sex-change op

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The Bombay High Court refused on Monday to grant any immediate relief to a woman police constable seeking directions to the police department to grant her leave of one month to undergo a sexual reassignment surgery.A division bench of Justices SC Dharmadhikari and Bharati Dangre asked petitioner Lalita Salve, who calls herself Lalit, to approach the Maharashtra Administrative Tribunal (MAT) for relief. However, advocate Ejaz Naqvi argued that the plea was not related to service rules of policemen, but dealt with a larger issue of right to live life with dignity and, therefore, needed the court’s consideration.The court then posted the matter for further hearing on November 30.Salve approached the High Court after her leave application was denied by police authorities. According to Salve’s petition, the relief sought is based on medical examination in which ‘Y’ chromosomes were found, and thus, she wants to undergo the surgery to live a dignified life.The plea further claims that the government should bear the expenses for conducting the sex-change surgery and allow her to continue the job as a male constable. Lalita, who now calls herself Lalit, stated in the plea, “Sex reassigning as per her emotional inclination towards straight male is her natural right and in the heart of the fundamental right of the Constitution to live with dignity instead of being a transgender.”The petition also wants the court to quash and set aside a communication dated November 20 issued by the Inspector General (Aurangabad range), denying her a month’s leave to undergo the reassignment surgery. Salve also claims that the state government has not promulgated adequate policy about rescuing such distressed citizens with gender identity trauma. Sexual preferences are part and parcel of rights to privacy of an individual, which falls under the fundamental right to life and liberty as per Article 21 of the Constitution of India, the petition states.Salve joined the Maharashtra Police force in May 2010 as a constable and has been posted at Beed since then. In 2014, she underwent a medical test and claims that male genes were found. In 2016, she took a test at JJ Hospital which suggested that she have a sex change, Salve’s petition states.

Gauri Lankesh murder: Killers will be caught 100 per cent in few weeks, says Karnataka minister

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The killers of senior journalist Gauri Lankesh, who was shot dead in an audacious attack here over two months ago, would “100 per cent” be nabbed in a few weeks, Karnataka Home Minister Ramalinga Reddy said on Saturday.He said the Special Investigation Team (SIT) probing the killing had clues about the assailants, but those could not be disclosed at the moment.”Who has done it…I am aware of it thanks to an update provided by the SIT. But I cannot disclose it now,” Reddy said at a meet-the-press programme organised by the Press Club of Bangalore and the Bangalore Reporters’ Guild here.”Gauri’s killers will 100 per cent be caught. This will happen in a few weeks,” he added.The minister, however, clarified, “Weeks do not mean one or two weeks. It (the arrest of the killers) will happen in a matter of a few weeks. This will happen 100 per cent.”Reddy said whether Lankesh was killed by left-wing or right-wing extremists or was it due to “some other thinking” was “one issue”.Lankesh, known to be an anti-establishment voice with strident anti-right wing views, was shot dead at close range by unidentified assailants outside her residence here on the night of September 5.The killing had led to a national outrage and protests by several groups over “rising intolerance” in the country and attempts to muzzle dissent, with the criticism targeted at the BJP-led central government and right-wing groups.Reddy had made similar claims about the SIT having gathered “some clues” in connection with the case earlier too.The Congress government in Karnataka, which constituted the SIT headed by Inspector General of Police (Intelligence) B K Singh, has also announced a reward of Rs 10 lakh for anyone providing clues about the perpetrators of the crime.As the killing gave way to a political slugfest, Lankesh’s family had made a plea not to give a political colour to it.They had said the investigators should look into all possible aspects of the case, as reports had emerged about a possible Naxal hand in the crime, besides the suspected involvement of right-wing extremists.

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.

How many vehicles checked, asks Delhi High Court

The court sought the data with regard to inspections carried out at the entry points to the Capital.A bench of acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice C Hari Shankar sought the information and an action plan from the authorities on how they intended to ensure compliance of the law and rules regarding polluting vehicles.It said if the authorities are able to address the issue of air pollution by inspection of vehicular emission, “then air quality in the city would improve positively.”The bench also sought information regarding vehicle inspections carried out by cops in areas falling under the jurisdiction of the police stations of Daryaganj, Dhaula Kuan, ISBT, Anand Vihar, Nehru Place, Raja Garden, Nangloi, Laxmi Nagar and Mukarba Chowk.The Court was hearing a plea by an NGO, Campaign for People Participation in Development Planning, alleging that the rise in vehicle-generated air pollution in Delhi was due to “non-enforcement and non-implementation” of the 1988 Motor Vehicle Act, which prescribes punishment for driving a polluting vehicle.Advocate Anil Aggarwal, who has filed the petition, contended before the bench that the Motor Vehicle Rules empowered a police officer, above the rank of Sub-Inspector, and a transport department official, above the rank of Inspector, to inspect vehicles and impose fines.

Maharashtra govt to link land info to courts

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>In a major land records reform which will enable buyers to know about the pending litigation on the property that they intend to purchase and ensure that it’s status is clear, the state government is planning to link its registration database with that of various courts in the state. The move, which is part of the ease of doing business agenda, will ease transactions on property and prevent individual and institutional buyers like corporates from being cheated.”This will help people know the litigation or the history of the land before making any transactions for it,” Anil Kawde, Inspector General of Registration and Controller of Stamps, told DNA, adding that the linkage with the revenue courts was likely to happen first.”We plan to put details of litigation for the past 30 years on our website. This will be done through a link between our i-Sarita database and the websites of courts and revenue authorities like district collectors and sub-divisional officers where related matters are heard,” said a senior official from the department of registration and stamps. He added that this would be done by linking their website with those of these authorities.This, the official said, would do away with the need for buyers to approach lawyers to verify the transaction history of the land they intended to purchase. He added that there were instances when parties got to know about the pending litigation on a property after it had been purchased. This integration between the two databases will also eliminate middlemen from the system.”However, security aspects need to be taken care of to prevent hacking and tampering of data,” he stressed.”This will enable people and institutional buyers to know about court rulings, concluded orders and pending litigation on land that they intend to purchase. We are looking at putting these details on our website in a searchable format,” said another official, adding that they were working on the technical aspects of this linkage since the data structures between these systems were different.These data structures will have to be arranged in a format which includes details like survey numbers and talukas. The data will be available through the e-search option on the department’s website where the transaction and registration history of the property like transfer, development, mortgage, sale, and purchase is available.The department logs in around 23 lakh annual registrations across the state, including over three lakh leave and licenses on properties. It is the second highest revenue grosser for the state exchequer after state goods and services tax (SGST) and has a target of Rs 21,000 crore to be achieved in this financial year.

Aarushi Talwar verdict: Allahabad HC slams CBI for its ‘patently absurd’ theory and ‘impossible hypothesis’ on Hemraj’s murder

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The Allahabad High Court has castigated the CBI for its theory on the murder of domestic help Hemraj in the Aarushi murder case, saying it is an “impossible hypothesis” and “patently absurd”.In its 273-page verdict acquitting dentists Nupur and Rajesh Talwar in the murder of their daughter Aarushi and Hemraj, it also said the prosecution “miserably failed” to prove that the Talwars had destroyed material evidence and added that the finding recorded to the contrary by the trial court could not be maintained.Analysing the prosecution case, a division bench of justices B K Narayana and A K Mishra refused to agree with the submission of CBI lawyer Anurag Khanna that the conduct of the dentist couple on finding their only daughter murdered, as noticed by the witnesses, was another circumstance which indicated their complicity.
ALSO READ After release in Aarushi murder case, Talwars to visit Dasna Jail every 15 days to check inmatesThe court said it was unable to agree with the contention of the probe agency as “different persons react differently in a given situation”.Justices Narayana and Mishra made the observations last week while allowing the appeals of Nupur and Rajesh Talwar against a Ghaziabad CBI court verdict sentencing them life term for the murder of 14-year-old Aarushi and Hemraj.
ALSO READ When perceptions trump proof: Talwars now face an uphill battle in the court of public opinion”The prosecution theory that the appellants had hidden the dead body of Hemraj on the terrace of their flat is patently absurd and improbable…,” the court said.It said this theory contemplated an “impossible hypothesis” that the body was hidden by the Talwars on their terrace with the intention of disposing it of on getting a suitable opportunity.The court said the theory was based on the hypothesis that the Noida Police would not be able to find the body on the terrace on May 16, 2008 when Aarushi was found dead in her room in the Talwar residence by her parents with her throat slit.Hemraj’s body was found the next day. The Central Bureau of Investigation had taken over the probe into the case from the Noida Police.Coming down heavily on the prosecution, the court said on careful evaluation of the evidence of four police personnel, it transpired that the prosecution witnesses made material improvements in their evidence tendered during the trial.Their testimonies during the trial were “conspicuous by their absence in their previous statements recorded under Section 161 Cr.P.C. (by the police),” it said.The witnesses were the Superintendent of Police, Mahesh Kumar Mishra, Inspector Data Ram Naunaria and Sub Inspector Bachchoo Singh, the judges said, adding that contrary to his previous statement, Mishra had stated in court that Rajesh Talwar was reluctant to identify the body of 45-year-old Hemraj.Similar was the case with Naunaria and Bachchoo Singh, they said.Justices Narayana and Mishra said the circumstances lent credence to another theory that the murder of Hemraj was committed on the terrace of the flat near a cooler.They said as the prosecution failed to pick up fingerprints of the persons who had put the cooler panel on the body of Hemraj, the court did not consider it proper to presume that the panel was put on the body by the Talwars in the absence of cogent evidence.”In fact, the CBI has miserably failed to lead any evidence which may even remotely suggest that Hemraj was murdered in the bedroom of Aarushi and then his dead body was wrapped in a bed sheet and dragged from Aarushi’s bedroom upto the terrace,” the judges said.The court also said that the non-breaking of the terrace door lock was not on account of non-availability of the key of the terrace door but due to the negligent and callous approach of the Investigating Officer of the case, Data Ram Naunaria.Moreover, the prosecution has failed to prove by any cogent evidence that the Talwar duo, despite being in possession of the key of the terrace door lock, had refused to make it available to the police, they said.”The prosecution’s allegation in this regard, therefore, is baseless and wholly irrelevant for fastening the appellants with the guilt,” the court said.

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>A man was so upset about returning a loan that he decided to commit murder rather than return the money. The bizarre state of affairs came to the police’s notice when they interrogated one Nadeem who decided to kill his friend Akhtar Abbas, rather than return the Rs 5 lakh he owed him.During the early hours on Thursday, a night patrolling police team intercepted a two-wheeler on which two men were carrying a bulky package. On being stopped, the vehicle initially slowed down but then sped away leaving behind a bag that was carrying a carcass. The cops tracked down the vehicle and zeroed in on the accused in the crime.On interrogation, the accused revealed the names of others involved in the crime. They were identified as Shareef alias Pravej (29), Khalid (41) and Sobi Khan alias Raja (20). However, the two masterminds behind the murder, Nadeem and Gulfam, are still absconding, police said.During interrogation, the other men revealed that Nadeem decided to kill the deceased with the help of his friends.”The deceased, Abbas was shot in the head and molten plastic poured on his head to stop the bleeding,” said DCP (Northeast) Ajit Kumar SinglaSingla said that it was Sub Inspector Dinesh Kumar and Head Constable Ashok who had spotted the two-wheeler on Thursday and tried to stop it.”This was when the bag fell from their scooter but the riders sped away towards Gautampuri. On checking the bag, police found the dead body of a man wrapped in plastic. The body was partially burnt with both its legs tied together with a cord,” Singla said.Following technical surveillance, the police then traced the two-wheeler with the help of its registration number and the owner was identified as one Mohammad Khalid, the elder brother of one Nadeem, who was later identified to be the mastermind of the case.”During investigation, it was revealed that construction work was going on at the sites owned by Nadeem. One of these sites in Jafrabad was checked and at the first floor, blood stains and burnt material were found.”It was also revealed that one Sharif alias Pravej from Gautampuri and Sobi Khan alias Raja, used to work for Nadeem. Meanwhile the deceased was identified as Akhtar Abbas who dealt in properties,” the DCP said.Abbas had been demanding money from Nadeem, leading to various arguments between them, following which Nadeem conspired to eliminate him with the help of his associates.”Late night on Wednesday they called Abbas from his residence and consumed liquor at the site in Jafrabad. Nadeem then shot Abbas in his head and then poured melted material on the head of the deceased to control the bleeding. They then tried to burn the body to conceal its identity,” the DCP said

7 JeM men on the loose; forces revisit J&K security bases

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>With seven Jaish-e-Mohammad fidayeens still on loose, security forces have decided to revisit the security of the camps and conduct fresh security audit of all bases to thwart the nefarious designs of the terrorists.The decision was taken in a security core group meeting held here on Friday. Top officers of the police, Army, paramilitary and intelligence agencies participated in the meeting, which was chaired by Jammu and Kashmir director general of police SP Vaid and general officer commanding 15 corps Lieutenant General JS Sandhu.“Security of all the camps is being revisited. It has been decided to carry out fresh audit of the camps, vital installations and other security establishments in the Kashmir,” said an officer requesting anonymity.The decision to conduct fresh audit comes four days after security forces repulsed a Pathankot-type terror attack when three Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) fidayeens were neutralised soon after they stormed the highly fortified Border Security Force (BSF) camp, neighbouring Srinagar International Airport and Air Force Station. An Assistant Sub Inspector (ASI) of BSF was killed and three others injured in the operation that lasted for 10 hours on Monday.This was the second attack in less than two months in which Jaish-e-Mohammad fidayeens stormed the security forces camp in the valley. Three of the fidayeens were killed when they attacked the District Police Lines Pulwama on August 26. Eight security force men –four each from CRPF and Jammu and Kashmir Police –were killed and six others injured in the encounter.A 17-member group of Jaish fidayeens were pushed in from Pir Panjal into J&K to replenish the terrorist ranks in July following the drubbing of the cadres in the valley. More than seven fidayeens are still on loose and security forces have intensified their operations to neutralize them before they could plan anything serious.MORALE DOWN155 terrorists including top commanders of the Hizbul Mujahideen and LeT have been eliminated by the security forces so far this year.
This has hit the morale of the terrorists who have gone in to hiding to avoid being killed by the forces.

The inside story of the Srinagar BSF encounter

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>A nine-hour long gun-battle was what it took to neutralize the three Jaish-E-Mohammed (JeM) terrorists who had infiltrated inside the 182nd Battalion Camp of the Border Security Force (BSF) in Srinagar in the wee hours of Tuesday but security forces have reason to believe that there are four more JeM cadres who are still roaming free in the Valley and plotting another fidayeen attack.“There is credible information that 10 JeM terrorists had infiltrated into the Valley a few days back. Three of them were killed in the encounter in Pulwama where they attacked the District Police Lines. Of the seven who were remaining, three were neutralized today. That still leaves us with four more terrorists who are still out there planning the next fidayeen attack,” reliable sources told WION/DNA.The BSF Battalion Camp that came under attack today is located in close proximity of the Srinagar International Airport, in the Humhama area falling in Budgam district. And while security agencies maintained that the airport was not the target, the possibility of them using this camp as a base to launch an attack on the airport was not being ruled out completely.The three terrorists who were gunned down today had been spotted in a black-coloured Alto car on the Pulwana-Budgam border late Monday night. Two of them were clad in BSF uniform while the third was in civilian clothing, sources said. In the wee hours today, these terrorists used a wire-cutter to cut the perimeter wire of the BSF camp to get inside. “It appeared to be a brand new, newly-purchased wire-cutter,” a source said.As soon as the three terrorists gained entry inside the camp from the back side of the Subordinate Officers’ (SO) Mess, they ran into different directions. While one of them dashed toward the Administrative Block, the second made his way to the SO Mess and the third made a run towards the canteen.It was then that the terrorist who was running towards the canteen—wearing civilian clothes–was challenged by a BSF sentry. “This terrorist responded with firing a burst but was not good enough for this sentry who took him out swiftly,” a source revealed.The other two terrorists managed to enter the Administrative Block and the SO Mess, respectively. “It was in the SO Mess that this terrorist martyred the BSF Assistant Sub Inspector. Before he could cause more damage, he was overpowered by the JCOs there who snatched his weapon and neutralized him,” the source said.Meanwhile, the terrorist who entered the Administration Block opened fire and injure an Exchange Operator and 2-3 more BSF personnel, one of whom was hit by a bullet in the abdomen. This terrorist was finally neutralized when he tried to escape from the Administration Block by running away.Sources said the three JeM terrorists were heavily armed. They were carrying AK-47s and Pakistani-made Shaheen pistols. A US-made sabre knife (having a compass) was also recovered from one of the killed terrorists.

It was Mehmood and his associates who stormed into the house of Constable Ramzan and killed him. There were three or four of them,” said Nitish Kumar, Inspector General of Police, North Kashmir.Police said the militants have suffered huge reverses in the last few months so they are now resorting to killing innocent and unarmed people.”In the last seven to eight months, more than 14 militants have been killed in the area.

Extortion case: Dawood’s brother Iqbal Kaskar’s list had 20 bizmen, say cops

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The Thane Police on Tuesday claimed that in the past four years at least 20 builders, jewellers and businessmen from Mumbai and nearby cities were allegedly targeted for extortion money by Iqbal Kaskar and his aides. The police will now record the statement of these ‘victims’ of Kaskar in order to bolster their case against him.Speaking to DNA, a senior police officer, who is privy to the investigation of Kaskar’s extortion case, said, “Though the current extortion took place in 2016, Kaskar and his men are believed to have extorted as many as 20 builders, businessmen and jewellers from Mumbai Metropolitan Region to the tune of crores of rupees.”As per the officer, Kaskar used to operate smartly while targeting his victims. “Two of his henchmen, who are also accused in the current extortion case, used to meet the victims and would dial Kaskar’s number from their phone. They would then make Kaskar speak to the victims.”Since Kaskar used to drop Dawood’s name, too, while threatening the victims, the police are examining if Dawood had a role to play in the extortion threats issued by his brother. “If we get any concrete evidence against Dawood, then we would certainly add his name in the FIR as well. We are probing if calls were made and received from Pakistan by Kaskar and his men,” the officer said.As per the police, the biggest evidence in the current extortion case against Kaskar is that the group had forcibly extorted four flats and Rs 30 lakh in cash from a builder and one of the accused was found occupying the flat when the police searched it. A team of 55 police personnel headed by Senior Inspector Pradeep Sharma arrested Kaskar from his Nagpada residence on Monday night.

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>A chilling video of a youth confessing of being an informer on gunpoint, apparently shot before he was assassinated, has exposed the terrorists in the troubled South Kashmir region.Bullet-riddled body of Ishtiyaq Ahmad Wagay, a shopkeeper of Jablipora in Anantnag, was recovered from Shopian on August 8. Police said terrorists had allegedly washed their hands of the assassination and instead blamed security agencies for the killing.A month later, a 1.39-minute video showing Wagay confessing of being an informer while a suspected terrorist (not in the frame) points AK 47 at him at an undisclosed destination.”I was forced to become an informer. They did not pay me anything. I have shared information about Talha, Musa bhai, Junaid Kandro and Turab. Now they have asked me to track down Daad,” Wagay, dressed in blue Khan Suit, tells the gunmen in pure Kashmiri.Police said 30-year-old Wagay was abducted by the terrorists before he was shot dead. Wagay’s blood-soaked body with multiple bullet wounds was recovered from the Alam Gunj village of south Kashmir’s Shopian district.”What did you gain from being the informer? Aren’t we your brothers? For whom we have left home? We have left for Islam. Now are you confessing that you were informer,” a terrorist not in the frame is heard telling Wagay.Deputy Inspector General of Police, South Kashmir Range, SP Pani said the killing reflects that the terrorists are settling their own scores and committing atrocities on the civilians.”They are fooling the people. They are killing innocent people just to fulfill their agenda. This is absolutely condemnable. This reflects what terrorists are up to,” said Pani.Director General of Police, Jammu and Kashmir, SP Vaid said investigation is on in the video. “We are investigating (the video) to check its veracity,” he said.A spate of civilian killings had rocked south Kashmir last month. Suspected terrorists had killed three persons, including a cable operator, within 24 hours last month.

Hussaini building collapse: FIR filed against SBUT officials

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Almost two weeks after the Hussaini building collapse in Bhendi Bazaar on August 31, that killed 33 persons and injured 17, the JJ Marg police on Wednesday registered a First Information Report (FIR) against officials of the Saifee Burhani Upliftment Trust (SBUT), which is carrying out the Bhendi Bazaar redevelopment project, and other accused.According to a statement issued by the police on Thursday, between March 28, 2011 and August 31, 2017, SBUT officials were aware that Hussaini building was dangerous to live in and Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority (MHADA) had granted permission to demolish it. The statement added that despite officials knowing the consequences if the building collapsed, it was not vacated.The case has, therefore, says the statement, been registered on the complaint made by Police Sub-Inspector Anand Deshmukh against SBUT officials and others under Section 304 (2) (culpable homicide not amount to murder), 337 (causing grievous hurt) and 338 (causing hurt by act endangering life of others) of the Indian Penal Code.”We have registered an FIR after conducting a preliminary inquiry wherein we have found that the SBUT did not take strict action to vacate the building. We are ascertaining which officials from SBUT are responsible for the tragedy,” said Jaideep Gaikwad, Senior Police Inspector of JJ Marg Police Station. He added that that the police will record statements of all the residents of the building and other residents of the area.When contacted, an SBUT spokesperson said, “So far, we are not aware about any case registered against the trust and its officials.”

Amarnath terror attack: People said Abu Ismail should be brought to justice; today there is justice, says J&K police

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Abu Ismail, the Lashkar-e-Taiba commander who masterminded the deadly attack on Amarnath yatra pilgrims in July, was killed by security forces on Thursday along with another Pakistani terrorist, police said.The two were gunned down after a brief encounter that saw the duo running for their lives.”On specific information, a joint operation was launched in Aribagh in Nowgam area on the outskirts of Srinagar city.It was around 4:15 pm that a contact was established with the two hiding terrorists in a house there. In a very brief encounter, both the terrorists were killed,” Inspector General of Police, Kashmir, Munir Khan said.He was addressing a joint press conference along with general officer commanding of the Army’s Victor Force, Major General B S Raju, and IG CRPF Ravideep Singh Sahi.Khan said the other terrorist has been identified as Abu Qasim alias Chota Qasim.”The bodies of the slain terrorists have been kept at the appropriate place for appropriate disposal,” he said.The IGP said two AK rifles, UBGLs and other material were recovered from them.He said Ismail was involved in 15 cases including the July 10 attack on a bus carrying Amarnath yatra pilgrims in south Kashmir’s Anantnag district which left eight of them dead.”After the elimination of Abu Dujana, he (Ismail) had taken over as the chief of LeT in the valley. He was involved in around 15 criminal cases in valley which included murder, dacoities and other militancy related incidents. So, I compliment our teams for executing a wonderful operation with no collateral damage,” Khan said.”The day they (militants) killed yatris, the people said that they should be brought to justice and today they have been brought to justice. It is a great success for the security forces. A chapter of these terrorists has been closed. Tomorrow will be a new day for us. We will start our work afresh.”When the attack took place, there was total condemnation of the act committed by terrorists from all sections of the society and people said loud and clear that these killers must be killed. So, from that day onwards, these killers were our targets and our teams whether they be police, army or the CRPF – were looking for them,” he said.He thanked the people for “expressing that sentiment that time because that was against Kashmiriyat. No Kashmiri liked that”.Asked whether all the militants behind the attack have been neutralised, the IGP said “One foreign and one local terrorists are left.”He said Ismail was an “A++” category militant while Qasim was “A+” category, but refused to share further details of the operation.”It is better not to ask such questions because they are operational details which we do not want to divulge. It is not that whole militancy has been wiped out by their killing. So, it is better not to divulge the details,” he said.Khan said the priority of the security forces is to neutralise the militant leadership in the valley.”Militant leadership is important to be neutralised. That has to be eliminated because they not only are militants but also provoke and motivate children. The priority is to neutralise the militant leadership. You know who are the leaders and they will be our next target,” he said.He, however, said “we have a long way to go and we will keep on trying.”Maj Gen Raju said Ismail’s killing is extremely important because he was responsible for the death of about 14 security forces personnel and eight civilians.”This success is also important because we are expecting vacuum in the foreign terrorists’ leadership of the LeT. After the death of Abu Qasim, then Abu Dujana and now Ismail. In between we also killed (Abu) Ali. Now, we are looking at a serious deficiency in their leadership which should give us more opportunities,” he said.

This will be ensured through inspection by both the schools and the education department,” he added.The education department has also asked the parents and school authorities to ensure that they do not allow minors to drive the vehicles.It has also appealed to the parents to be cautious at the time of hiring private vans for their wards.”We have sought the support of both the school management and parents for the safe transportation of children to schools,” the DIoS said.
