DNA EXCLUSIVE: Bleeding professor fails to get first aid at IGIA

The Delhi International Airport Limited (DIAL) may boast about its international-standard Terminal 3 but a 57-year-old professor from AIIMS, Jodhpur, had to roam around with a bleeding forehead for more than an hour while the medical aid room at the Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGIA) remained locked. Reportedly, there is a lavish Medanta clinic inside the airport but both the professor and the airport staff were unaware of it.The incident took place on December 19, when Dr Prem Prakash Sharma, who works as an Assistant Professor (Biostatistician) at AIIMS, Jodhpur, in Rajasthan, arrived at the Delhi airport to catch an Air India (AI) flight to Vishakhapatnam.”I was trying to take out my luggage from the cab’s trunk when it fell on my head and I fell down. Seconds later, when I got up with the driver’s assistance, I noticed that my forehead was bleeding. I tried to contain the blood flow with my handkerchief but it did not stop. So then I approached my airline’s counter to seek medical assistance,” Sharma told DNA.He further said the person on the counter took him to a medical room inside the terminal but it was locked. After that, the airline staff took Sharma around the terminal but failed to find any medical assistance for him, who was still struggling to control the blood flow.”No medical or paramedical staff was available nearby. Finally, the airline staff apologised to me. Later, a woman at an information counter, who had a first aid kit, helped me. Luckily, the bleeding had stopped by then,” Sharma said, adding: “I got proper dressing and Tetanus injections after reaching Visakhapatnam.”The airport operators, meanwhile, claimed that sufficient medical facilities are available at the airport, including a Medanta clinic. Sharma, however, said that neither he nor the airline staff was aware of any such facility.”Surprisingly, out of hundreds of airport staff on the floor, none came forward to offer help as we roamed around. It was shocking for me to learn that on an international airport like IGIA, no first aid facility could be availed. Fortunately, it was not a major accident. Had this happened to a tourist or an international passenger, it would have been an insult for the country,” the professor said.

Orders dip as GST hits Jodhpur craft exporters

Handicraft exporters are in crisis. Due to GST, handicraft items of Jodhpur have become expensive in the international market and their demand has decreased. The handicraft export business of Jodhpur has declined nearly 40 percent and business worth Rs 700 crore has been reduced since the implementation of GST.Before GST, where 150-180 million exports of handicrafts from Jodhpur were going on every month, right now it has come down to 75 to 90 million per month. The provision of GST from 12 to 28 percent on handicraft furniture has hit exporters and foreign customers are now heading towards China, Vietnam and Indonesia.Nirmal Bhandari, Chief patron of Jodhpur Handicrafts Exporters Federation said that the government has imposed five percent GST on brass handicrafts of Moradabad, while the 28 percent GST was recovered from Jodhpur handicraft till November and now 18 percent in December, due to which, demand has started decreasing in overseas countries. While there is no GST refund yet and it is becoming very difficult for the exporters to work. Not only this, even crores of rupees of VAT have not been refunded. Now, the situation has reached in such condition that the exporters have started refusing the order.According to exporters, orders were taken from buyers from UK, Europe and USA in April for Christmas season. The orders have been supplied in August, September, October and mid-November, but exporters had to supply this order at 28 per cent loss, because the government has implemented GST in July. So far, the handicraft industry was completely tax free, but now 18 per cent tax has been levied. The order that has been supplied will be paid by the buyers 120 days after the shipment arrives. In such a situation, exporters are unable to understand how to compensate for the 28 per cent loss from the previous supply.

Supreme Court’s decision helps drop case pendency

Supreme Court’s decision to hold Lok Adalat in every two months has immensely helped in reducing pending court cases. In 2017, five Lok Adalats were organised in which a number of cases resolved are more than cases disposed of by all courts in the state in last five years.The current year will be remembered for quick disposal of pending cases in the courts. The Lok Adalats were organised in February, April, July, September and December. On a call given by RALSA executive chairman Justice KS Jhaveri, even sitting judges of high court also heard matters in Lok Adalat. The move resulted in the clearing of 2.57 lakh cases in which awards to the tune of Rs 944 crore were passed.Apart from Lok Adalats, district legal service authorities have also contributed in a major way to reduce cases pendency. Cases were resolved in a speedy way in lower courts in Jaipur, Jodhpur, Tonk, Ajmer, Udaipur, Alwar and Kota. In Jaipur alone, five Lok Adalats decided 40,000 cases and passed awards of Rs 126 crore. Justice KS Jhaveri, who has taken a keen interest had also put in efforts in a big way, which have now begun to show results.

Health services cripple, as doctors-Rajasthan govt in battle of attrition

Indefinite strike call by the in-service government doctors on Saturday severely hampered the health services at government health facilities across the state. The doctors posted in District Hospitals, Sub Divisional Hospitals, Community Health Centers (CHCs) and Primary Health Centers (PHCs) remained absent after declaring an indefinite strike, 48 hours prior to the given ultimatum.Meanwhile, the government remained firm on its stand and arrest of doctors continued on the second day. Doctors have called the government action the “Rowlatt Act”.Till Saturday evening, as per the state police headquarters, 52 doctors were arrested across the state for not attending their duties as the Rajasthan Essential Services Maintenance Act (RESMA) is in force. The arrests were made in various districts including Ajmer, Sriganganagar, Bundi, Kota, Karauli, Dholpur, Swai Madhopur, Jhunjhunu, Jhalawar, Jaislamer, Tonk, Barmer and Bhilwara. Though, no doctor was arrested in Jaipur, the police raids were going on to nab the agitating doctors.It is worth mentioning that after the announcement of indefinite strike from December 18 made by the All Rajasthan In Service Doctors Association (ARISDA), state government has already extended RESM, imposed in September for next three months. This is the reason why the office-bearers of ARISDA, including main leaders of the agitation, have gone underground and switched off their mobile phones. However, these leaders are seeking support for the agitation social media.In an another development, the resident doctors have extended their support to in-service doctors’ agitation. In a statement, the Jaipur Association of Resident Doctors (JARD) said that any repressive action against the agitating doctors, resident doctors associated with JARD will also go on indefinite leave from December 18. In Jodhpur many doctors boycotted the work on Saturday to protest against the arrest of doctors. Jodhpur Collector Dr Ravi Kumar Surpur said that if the doctors refuse to resume their duties they will be arrested RESMA Act. He said that arrangements have been made to take the services of the doctors of Railways, AIIMS, army and BSF. He said that during the strike period AYUSH doctors will be deployed at primary health centres. Instructions have been issued to the ANM and other medical personnel to provide immediate treatment and refer serious patients to the district and medical colleges. He said that all relevant senior officers and police officers have been given instructions to take action against the striking doctors.

Rajasthan HC sets guidelines for religious conversion

A double bench at the Rajasthan High Court, Jodhpur has issued guidelines that religious conversion would be possible only after a mandatory intimation and clearance by the district collector, SDM, SDO.

The court observed that merely declaring on a stamp paper that an individual is converting religion would not be considered legally valid. This guideline would remain effective till the Rajasthan Dharma Swatantraya Bill 2007, which is pending for the last 11 years, is cleared.Hearing the petition Justices GK Vyas and VK Mathur issued the guidelines. The court ordered that anyone who wants to convert will have to inform the district collector in writing. This information, including his name, address and details about the sought conversion would be displayed on the notice board at the collectorate.Once the application has been filed, after 21 days the applicant can appear before the district collector, SDM, SDO and explain reasons for the conversion. The guidelines said that objections would also be recorded. The court clarified that in case this procedure was not adopted then marriages performed after conversion would not be considered valid.

Future of 1,509 Jodh varsity students under question

The qualification of 25 thousand students who got a fake degree from Jodhpur National University had already become invalid raising questions on the career of 1509 students who have actually studied there. Notably, two years ago the UGC and College Commissionerate had banned the entry of new students in the university, after the disclosure of the distribution of fake degrees. However, no decision has been taken on the 1,509 students studying in the college at that time. As a result, these students continued to study here. Now, when these students have completed their studies and it is time to get a degree, their degree has been termed as bogus.It is worth mentioning that Kamal Mehta, Chairman of this University, and his colleagues had distributed thousands of bogus degrees after taking huge fees. It was disclosed in 2014 by SOG and ATS.ADG of SOG and ATS has released the list of 615 students studying in current session including 894 students of the 2015/16 session. SOG also sent the marks list and enrollment number of these students to the Higher Education Department. The Higher Education Department has declared it invalid after two years. The department has released a list of students whose degrees have been declared bogus and have told not to give employment to these students in government departments, offices, and universities.Earlier, the department had issued a list of 25 thousand students who got fake degrees. Agencies are still investigating the case. So far, the names of 26,506 people who have taken the degree from this University have been revealed in the investigation. The degree of all these has now been revoked. Ten people have been arrested in this case of fraud. SOG is also trying to find out that how many people have got a job.FAKE DEGREE SCAMIt is worth mentioning that Kamal Mehta, Chairman of this University, and his colleagues had distributed thousands of bogus degrees after taking huge fees.

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.

A huge fault has come due to different rocks between Aravalli hills in Mewar and plains of Marwar, which has turned the area from Marwar to Mewar into an earthquake prone region, due to which continuous earthquake tremors are being felt in Jodhpur, Pali, Sirohi, Jaisalmer and Barmer in western Rajasthan.However, geologists have denied the possibility of a big earthquake in Rajasthan, as of now.It is noteworthy that in the last ten years, fourteen tremors were felt in western Rajasthan. Professor Suresh Mathur, Head of Department of Geology Department, Jainarayan Vyas University, told that if the epicentre of earthquake is 10 kms below the surface of Jodhpur, geologically, it is clear that the epicentre is located in basement rocks below the igneous rocks of Malani igneous suite and Jodhpur group of rocks. The most preliminary view is that possibly, the nearest lineament may be ‘K lineament” running from Khatu to Sirohi. “Western Rajasthan, due to its geographical condition, comes under the Thar Desert region which always had weak ground motion,” said Prof S C Mathur, Head of department, geology, Jai Narayan Vyas University. The stability is also because of the dense desert cover which has abundance of sand acting as a cushion. “During earthquakes, sand acts as a shock absorber in the western Rajasthan,” he said.

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>BJP leader Subramanian Swamy today termed the Gujarat Congress legislators, who have been sent to a resort to fend off ‘poaching’ attempts by the saffron party ahead of Rajya Sabha polls, as “cattle in need of fodder”. “They (Congress legislators) are cattle…they are being taken to a cage. Only BJP can give them the fodder,” he told reporters at the Jodhpur Civil Airport when asked about the recent developments in BJP-ruled Gujarat. The Congress has sent 44 of its legislators to the resort outside Bengaluru. Of the 57 Congress MLAs in the state, six resigned from the party in the last two days with three of them joining the BJP yesterday. Talking about the India-China military stand-off in the Sikkim section, the BJP leader, who was in the city to attend an event by Rajasthan Patrika, said India needed to harmonise its relations with Beijing. On being asked about the stepping down of Pakistan prime minister Nawaz Sharif over graft charges, Swamy said the bilateral relation between India and Pakistan will now worsen. “Sharif was a henpecked prime minister and was nothing but a tool for the army and jehadis,” he said. The parliamentarian added that Pakistan should be split into four parts — Baluchistan, Pakhtunistan, Sindh and West Panjab. “Pakistan will never rectify. It is better to split it into four parts. This is the only solution to the problem with Pakistan,” he said.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)

Doctor acquitted in rape case as woman resiles from complaint

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>A doctor has been acquitted of charge of raping a woman, whom he had met through a matrimonial website, by a Delhi court after she deposed that the physical relations were established with her consent. The court said no incriminating evidence has come on record against the doctor and absolved him of the charges. “From close scrutiny of testimony of the woman, the star witness of the case, no incriminating evidence has come on record to proceed further. Hence, in these circumstances further trial of the case would not serve any purpose,” Additional Sessions Judge Ramesh Kumar said. A case was lodged in July last year on the woman’s allegation that she came in contact with the man through a matrimonial site and they started communicating over phone. The man, posted in a hospital in Jodhpur, proposed marriage and asked her to meet him in Delhi. In June last year, the man met her and took her to a hotel in Paharganj area in central Delhi where he consumed liquor and forcibly established physical relations with her, the woman had alleged. She alleged that the man refused to marry her after which she lodged a complaint against him. However, the woman changed her stand in the court and deposed that the physical relations were established with her consent. She said the man had neither threatened her nor took her obscene videos or photographs. Asked by the judge as to why she filed the complaint against the man when the physical relations were consensual, the woman said when she reminded him that he had proposed marriage, he sought time for it. She became suspicious of his intentions and thought that he was avoiding her. So she lodged the complaint.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)
