Diabetics cannot claim mediclaim in first four years

If you have diabetes and hypertension, forget that you can rely on your mediclaim or health insurance policy in emergency, if the policy is not at least four years old.The Gujarat Consumer Dispute Redressal Commission has ruled that if one goes for any surgery within four years of buying an insurance policy and claims refund, it will be considered to be in violation of terms and conditions and the person won’t be entitled to health/medical claim. The commission also set aside an order by the Junagadh forum.”There is an error in the conclusion of the forum in directing the United Insurance Company Limited to pay health claim to complainant Mahendra Vazirani. As per the policy conditions, even though a disclosure is made about diabetes and hypertension, insurance benefits can be extended only after four years,” the commission concluded.It added, “In the present case, the complainant underwent a bypass surgery within two years of buying the health insurance policy. It clearly establishes the violation of the terms and conditions of the policy; so the complainant won’t be entitled to a claim.”The commission’s judicial bench of members VM Chaudhary and MD Gadhvi, while allowing the appeal of the insurance company, opined that there is merit in its submission that diabetes has a direct relationship with hypertension. In support of its contention, it cited the National Commission’s order in LIC vs Srimati Shashi Bala.In this case, complainant Mahendra had subscribed to an individual health policy from the insurance company for 2009-2010. On August 13, 2009, he underwent an angiography, after which he was asked to undergo a bypass surgery. He was operated upon at a Nadiad hospital and he had paid a medical bill of Rs1.20 lakh. As he had a health insurance policy of Rs1 lakh, he said he was entitled to 70 per cent of the insured amount.However, the company rejected his claim citing pre-existing diabetes and hypertension which he had disclosed while buying the policy.An aggrieved Mahendra then approached the Junagadh forum which then asked the insurance company to pay the claim amount. The company challenged the order before the commission.A CONDITIONAL COVERThe Gujarat Consumer Dispute Redressal Commission has ruled that a person who has diabetes and hypertension cannot demand mediclaim refund within 4 yrs of the policy

WhatsApp admin gets anticipatory bail from Rajasthan HC for objectionable posts by a member

The police started investigation into the matter. Group admin Mahendra applied for anticipatory bail at the local court and was denied. He then moved to the HC, where he got relief.

According to Ashok Changani, advocate for Mahendra, “Being an admin does not make him responsible for what is posted on the group. If the admin is responsible for posts of members, then the mobile service provider and WhatsApp should also be responsible.” “The IT Act needs to be amended to include the admin. In its present form, only the person who makes the posts is responsible,’” added Changani. While Mahendra has obtained respite from court, Brijendra is yet to get any relief.”

An FIR was lodged against the admin of the group at Jaisalmer under sections of IPC and IT ACT, holding him responsible for objectionable posts by a member of the group against a woman. The member was also mentioned in the FIR. When the admin was denied bail at the local court he moved High Court at Jodhpur and was granted anticipatory bail. The court observed that he was not responsible for the posts made by others. The group admin, Mahendra Garg, a resident of Jaisalmer, had created a WhatsApp group that had people from his community as members. On June 21 one of the members Brijendra Garg posted some photographs and comments against a 24 year old woman. He alleged that the lady was married previously but has again remarried, without divulging details of the past. Brijendra mocked both the husband and wife on the WhatsApp group. Subsequently, on June 25 an FIR was filed by the lady not only against Brijendra, who had posted on the group, but also Mahendra who is the admin of the group under section 509 IPC and Sec 67 of IT Act. They were accused of violating a woman’s modesty and publishing obscene material in electronic form. The police started investigation into the matter. Group admin Mahendra applied for anticipatory bail at the local court and was denied. He then moved to the HC, where he got relief. According to Ashok Changani, advocate for Mahendra, “Being an admin does not make him responsible for what is posted on the group.

Six-day week set to make a comeback for government employees!

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Vasundhara Raje government has made up its mind to implement six-day week for the government employees. The government is fast moving in this direction. This is a calculated risk vis-a-vis assembly election, as the government is hoping to get public support but the decision may also backfire because government employees are not going to like it.The first indication of reverting to old system of six-day week has been received during CM’s Ajmer visit. She is said to have taken a confidential report and 42 out of 60 organisations have backed the decision.Various surveys and reports by the government have propelled the government to end with five-days week, which has not benefited the common man. Most employees didn’t come on time in the morning and left office before 6 pm. Even worse was a holiday preceding weekend or following it. Employees would use this to proceed on long leave thus affecting work.Although, working hours are less in five-day week, but every attempt to change in last nine years have met with stiff resistance and failed altogether. The five-day week was introduced by CM Vasundhara Raje during her previous tenure ahead of assembly elections in 2008.It is believed that 7th pay commission’s announcement is being held because the government wanted to implement it with six-day week to pacify employees.“Five-day week is not benefiting common people. Six-day week can speed up government functioning,” social worker Sumer said.“Five-day week was implemented during previous government of Vasundhara ji. It was implemented on trial basis. CM got feedback that people’s work has been affected; therefore, six-day week is considered better. As for the employees, they have been working hard and will continue to do so,” said employees leader Mahendra Singh.Six-day weekWorking hours : 10 to 5Second Saturday holidayDaily working hours 7Monthly 24X7= 175Second Saturday and all Sundays= 65Cumulative non working days= 65+29+21=115Working days 250 Facts about five days week & ‘more holidays’The state govt has more holidays than central governmentPrevious Vasundhara Raje government implemented on August 30, 2008Implemented on trial basisIt was a masterstroke yet BJP lost.

Truckers to strike work on Oct 9-10

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The road transporters have threatened to go on a nationwide strike on October 9-10 to protest the sharp rise in diesel prices, GST policies and “corruption” on roads. On Friday, the Bombay Goods and Transport Association (BGTA) — that has 10 lakh truckers with them — announced that they will participate in this nationwide strike.The truckers claim that this strike will not hurt essential commodities like milk and vegetable supplies as it will be individual drivers and owners’ choice to ply or not ply vehicles on those days.

The recent hike in diesel prices has sent shockwaves and so we want the government to rationalise taxes on diesel and reduce its price. Revision of diesel should be done on a quarterly basis,” said Mahendra Arya, spokesperson, BGTA.In its list of woes, the body has also rued that there is confusion and disruption due to the varied policies under GST that are imposed on the road transport sector. The BGTA claims that the truckers are forced to pay double as these assets being ferried attracts GST.The body has stated that in case they do not get a positive response from the government, the associations would consider an indefinite nation-wide ‘chakka jam’ after Diwali.

Darjeeling unrest: Mamata appoints board of administrators to run GTA, rebel GJM leader to be chairman

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Aiming to put an end to the current impasse at the hills, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Wednesday appointed a board of administrators to run Gorkhaland Territorial Administration (GTA) with rebel GJM leader Binay Tamang as its chairman. During an interaction with mediapersons at Nabanna, the state secretariat she said that the government would soon issue a notification regarding it.“The GTA members have resigned and according to the Gorkhaland Territorial Administration Act we had made IAS Barun Roy the administrator of GTA. If they had not, they could have remained till an election took place. Today we have decided to form a board of administrators of GTA according to the section 65 (b) of the GTA Act. The nine-members of the board are representatives of hill parties,” Mamata said. She was quick to add that she never asked any of the GTA members to resign and since they have stepped down on their own,GTA could not be defunct for a long time.She announced the name of rebel GJM leaders Binay Tamang as the chairman of the board and Anit Thapa as the vice-chairman. Earlier, GJM chief Bimal Gurung had expelled both Tamang and Thapa from the party.She said that the board would continue to function till a new body of GTA was elected. “The new board which has been formed will continue to do developmental work at the hills till the condition is conducive enough to conduct an election at the hills,” Mamata said. GNLF leader and Subhash Ghishing’s son Mann Ghishing has also been made one of the members of the board.She also criticised Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh for holding meeting with GJM leaders against whom lookout notices have been issued. “Lookout notices have been issued against some GJM leaders. Holding meeting with them is not correct, especially when someone holds an important constitutional post. I would have not done it if I was in the same situation,” Mamata added.Both the GJM and the GNLF have spoken against creation of the board of administrators. “The three – Mamata Banerjee, Binay Tamang and Anit Thapa – have joined hands in order to kill democracy. The GJM rejects the decision to form a board of administrators of GTA and appeals all other parties to reject it as well,” said Binita Roka, GJM spokesperson. GNLF leader Mahendra Chhetri too said, “The board has been formed by the CM without consulting us. It is illegal as the GTA matter is sub-judice. We will not be a part of the new board.”

32 thalassemia-hit kids contracting HIV: Case closed

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>A CBI court here today closed a case of criminal culpability against a BJP MLA, his blood bank officials and those of Junagadh civil hospital, where 32 thalassemia-hit children had allegedly contracted HIV in 2011 after transfusion of blood supplied from the MLA’s blood bank. Special CBI Judge N J Nayee ordered closure of the case accepting the CBI’s report which reiterated that it cannot be proved that the children contracted HIV due to blood transfusion at the hospital. In its closure report, filed after probing the matter for a second time, the CBI said no cognisable offence can be made against 14 suspects, including sitting MLA Mahendra Mashru who runs Sarvodaya blood bank and the doctors of Junagadh civil hospital. Concurring with the CBI’s findings, the court said no cognisable offence can be made against the suspects. The agency had filed its closure report first in 2014 on the same ground, but the court had ordered further probe after the parents filed protest petition through their lawyer Paresh Waghela. The court in its order today said that based on the CBI report, no cognisable offence can be made and at best a departmental inquiry can be initiated against the hospital doctors and other staffers. The CBI was ordered to probe the case by the Gujarat High Court in June 2012 on a plea by the parents of some of the 32 ill-fated children, suffering from thalassemia. The children were found to be HIV positive after they had blood transfusion at the Junagadh civil hospital in September 2011. Six of the children had died later. The parents alleged that the doctors from the hospital and officials of Sarvodaya blood bank, ran under the patronage of MLA Mashru, were responsible for the criminal negligence. As local police refused to register an FIR, the parents had approached the high court. On their plea, the high court had earlier ordered police to register an FIR in the case and had ordered probe into it by an IPS officer. The court then ordered probe by the central agency on a plea by parents, filed through advocate Girish Das.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)

However, the man used to operate in another person’s area and make deliveries due to which he was in a tussle with another party,” informed Bhagwan Sahai Meena, station house officer, Kotwali Police Station Churu.Shockingly, sources reveal that the man was connected with one of the rivals of Anandpal who is currently lodged in jail. However, the man was not part of the rival gang but had a fleeting association since the man is a small time criminal for the gang.Moreover, a few days back the members of both the gangs were also arrested for disrupting peace in the area.Late in the night Godara was on a bike and was passing from Karwasra bus stand when a utility vehicle reached the area and four men got down from it. The men immediately opened fire at Godara and fled after hitting him.“Godara sustained four bullet wounds and died on the spot. An FIR has been registered naming Ramswaroop, a history-sheeter of Doodhwa Khara police station and Madiya a history-sheeter of Bissau police station area. Both men are hardcore criminals,” the officials said.“Apart from these, there are several others who have been named in the FIR.

Govt shouldn’t compel farmers to become Naxals: Hardik

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Patidar quota agitation leader Hardik Patel today said the government shouldn’t “compel farmers to become Naxals”. Patel, who had crossed swords with the BJP government in Gujarat during the agitation for OBC quota, also said that he didn’t recognise Narendra Modi as the prime minister of the country. He was speaking at `Kisan Maha-panchayat’ organised by Patidar Samaj (a Patidar organisation) at Narayangarh in Mandsaur district of Madhya Pradesh, which had witnessed an intense farmers’ agitation last month. When farm loans can be waived in Uttar Pradesh and Punjab, why can’t it happen in Madhya Pradesh, he asked. “This country is run by farmers. Don’t compel farmers to become Naxals,” Patel said. Farmers would never have to face bullets if those sitting in Bhopal and Delhi were true leaders, he said, referring to death of five protesters in police firing in Mandsaur during the agitation last month. “I don’t recognise Narendra Modi as the prime minister of the country (Main Narendra Modi-ko desh-ka pradhan mantri nahi manta),” he said. Farmers in MP have paved the way for a nationwide farmers’ agitation, Patel said. Earlier, Madhya Pradesh Patidar Samaj president Mahendra Patidar told the gathering that the farmers’ agitation in the state was self-motivated. He also demanded that the state government should restart procurement of opium poppy husk (which is cultivated in the area) or the farmers would sell the crop to anyone who wants to buy it.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)

Cop, two others arrested for custodial death in Mehsana

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Three persons were today arrested in connection with alleged custodial death of a 28-year-old man at Mehsana which had led to protest by the local Patidar community. Police registered FIR in the case based on the complaint of Mahendra Patel, the deceased Ketan Patel’s father, last night. Taluka police here arrested head constable Chirag Parmar, Bharat Barot and his son Chirag Barot today. Bharat Barot had filed a complaint of theft against Ketan Patel, resident of Balol village near Mehsana. On June 5, Ketan died in civil hospital, allegedly due to torture in the police custody. It led to a strong protest by the local Patidar community. State Congress leaders visited Mehsana to meet Mahendra Patel and demanded registration of FIR. According to Mahendra Patel, Bharat Barot abducted Ketan on June 1 and took him to his shop where Bharat and his son Chirag beat him up. An injured Ketan was then taken to taluka police station and again beaten up there, his father claimed. Head constable Chirag Parmar then called up Mahendra and demanded Rs 50,000 to release his son, the complaint said. Mahendra refused to pay bribe. He was again called up on June 3, this time with demand of Rs 16,000 for his son’s release, he said. On the same day, Bharat Barot lodged a complaint against Ketan for theft. On the night of June 5, Mahendra was informed by police that his son had died during treatment at the civil hospital. The first autopsy revealed as many as 39 injury marks on the body but did not specify the cause of death. Second autopsy, conducted at the instructions of the collector and the superintendent of police, confirmed 56 injury marks which led to the death, Mahendra said. Though his son was arrested on June 1, FIR for theft was registered only on June 3, after Mahendra refused to pay bribe, the complaint said. Also, two gold rings worn by his son were taken away, Mahendra alleged. Police have registered FIR against head constable Parmar, Bharat Barot and Chirag Barot under sections 302 (murder), 364, 365 (kidnapping), 397 (robbery) of IPC, and also under the Prevention of Corruption Act.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)

C P Joshi pips Ruchir Modi to become RCA president

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Congress leader C P Joshi has pipped Ruchir Modi, son of former IPL commissioner Lalit Modi, to become president of the Rajasthan Cricket Association (RCA). The elections of RCA were held on May 29 but results were declared today as per the orders of the High Court. Joshi won with a 19-14 margin. The ballot boxes were kept in government treasury and were brought in RCA academy, where after a long drama, the election results were announced by election officer A K Pandey. It was rather on expected lines that former president Joshi emerged much stronger than Modi who was backed by his father Lalit, who is facing a life ban from the BCCI and is in exile owing to money laundering charges by the Enforcement Directorate (ED). It was also a sweet revenge for the senior congressman Joshi, who had had to withdraw from the election against Lalit Modi the previous year because he was deserted by his own supporters. The only consolation for Modi faction was that the post of secretary went to Rajendra Singh Nandu, who is believed to be staunch supporter of Lalit Modi. He beat Mahendra Sharma 17-16 by cross voting which was also seen on some other posts. Another Modi man, Pinkesh Jain, too came out winner against Azad Singh with a 18-15 margin for the post of treasurer. The post of vice-president went to Mohammad Iqbal, also a Congress man, who beat Ram Prakash Choudhary 19 14 while Mahendra Nahar, also of Joshi faction, emerged victorious against Shatrughan Tiwari 18 15. The post of executive member went to K K Nimawat, who got the better of Ramesh Gupta 19 14. The state cricket is already bearing the brunt of electing Lalit Modi as RCA president in the last election which resulted in the BCCI suspension of the state body. The BCCI had warned that the suspension would continue till Lalit Modi was removed also from the primary bodies of RCA. Despite that, Lalit Modi hung on to the post of president of Nagaur District Association. Thus the districts approached Joshi to provide them the umbrella they needed to put the state cricket on track. It can t be denied that Lalit Modi, who came to the helm of RCA by removing Rungtas in 2005, had done a tremendous job by creating infrastructure.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)

SC quashes case against Dhoni for portraying himself as God

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The Supreme Court today quashed a criminal complaint lodged against ace cricketer Mahendra Singh Dhoni in an Andhra Pradesh trial court for allegedly hurting religious sentiments by depicting himself as Lord Vishnu on a magazine cover. The apex court also quashed the criminal complaint against the Editor of the magazine and said that the offence under section 295A (hurting religious sentiments) of the IPC is not made out against them as they did not maliciously hurt the religious sentiments of the complainant. A bench comprising Justices Dipak Misra, A M Khanwilkar and M M Shantanagoudar said “it would be a travesty of justice” if the cricketer and the co-accused editor are prosecuted in the case. The instant complaint was lodged against Dhoni and others at a trial court in Anantapur in Andhra Pradesh. The apex court had on September 5 last year quashed a similar case lodged against Dhoni and others in Karnataka and set aside the High Court order which had refused to stall the proceedings against them. It had also said the trial court in Karnataka did not follow the due procedure in summoning the cricketer and others in the case. Dhoni had filed the Special Leave Petition challenging the Karnataka HC order. The complaint had alleged that Dhoni was seen on the cover of the magazine as Lord Vishnu, holding several things, including a shoe in his hands. Taking cognisance of the complaint, the trial court in Karnataka had directed registration of a case against Dhoni under section 295 (injuring or defiling place of worship with intent to insult the religion of any class) along with 34 (common intention) of the IPC. Later, Dhoni was directed to appear before the court after which he moved the high court against the summons issued against him.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)

NGT slams AAP govt for not introducing destination buses

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The National Green Tribunal today slammed the Delhi government for not introducing destination buses to help improve air quality in the national capital. A bench headed by NGT Chairperson Justice Swatanter Kumar directed the Chief Secretary of Delhi government to show cause why point-to-point bus services have not started till date despite its order last year. “Do you (Delhi government) know the state of affairs in Delhi? Children are not able to breathe fresh air and are going to hospitals every week. This is what you want for your children? “Why have you not started destination buses despite our specific orders? The Chief Secretary of Delhi is directed to submit as to why destination buses in terms of our orders have not been introduced so far,” the bench also comprising Justice R S Rathore said. Destination buses are the ones which ply from one point to another without any halts in between the journey. The green panel lambasted the Delhi government after its counsel submitted that there was shortage of buses and said, “It is evident that large number of buses are standing along Yamuna at the depot. We see no reason why state authorities have not implemented our order so far.” The green panel said introduction of destination buses would facilitate an individual to opt for such a service rather than driving a car alone on highly congested roads. It also said that such point to point buses would result in reducing jams as a large number of people from places like Dwarka and Rohini come to offices in Central Delhi. “These buses would provide an economical alternative to people to avoid use of private cars and will have direct benefits to reduce congestion and improve the ambient air quality,” the bench said. The mater is now listed for next hearing on April 29. During the last hearing the NGT had said, “The traffic on roads of Delhi needs to be reduced by taking various measures that have already been directed to be taken by various authorities including introduction of destination buses which could certainly help particularly the middle class and single driver from opting for destination buses rather than driving a car individually on highly congested roads of Delhi.” It had also asked the AAP government to provide incentives to those using public transport in order to encourage them. It had earlier directed the Delhi government to convene a meeting of authorities concerned and come up with solutions to tackle the worsening air quality in the city after being told that the odd-even scheme has not helped in curbing pollution. The NGT was hearing a petition filed by scientist Mahendra Pandey, who has sought independent monitoring of air quality index and also claiming that vehicular emission was not a major contributing factor to pollution.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)

MP: Ajay Singh says won’t use red beacon; practise should end

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Leader of Opposition in the Madhya Pradesh Assembly, Ajay Singh, today said he will not use red beacon on his car, as it represents “feudalism”. “I am announcing that I am returning my red beacon today itself,” Singh said in the House during Zero Hour. “By putting red beacons atop cars, people are practising feudalism. Therefore this system should be abolished in Madhya Pradesh also (following similar decisions in Uttar Pradesh and Punjab),” he said. However, Panchayati Raj Minister Gopal Bhargava took a jibe at him, asking why Singh didn’t think of this when Congress was in power. Singh retorted that even when he was minister, he did not use red beacon. Talking to reporters later, Singh said, “I have demanded that the Madhya Pradesh government end the culture of red and yellow beacon cars.” He got a red beacon a few days ago, he said. “I will remove it from my car today itself. Earlier too I never used it and I do not like it.” Blue beacons atop ambulances should continue, he added. When asked why the red beacon should not be used, senior Congress leader Mahendra Singh Kalukheda said, “People are using it for illegal sand mining.” The Congress has been long alleging that illegal mining is rampant in Narmada and other rivers with the state government’s protection. The BJP government has denied the allegations.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)

Hospitals in Thane to be inspected to check foeticide

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Thane Collector Dr Mahendra Kalyankar has ordered inspection of all clinics and hospitals in the district to find out if they adhere to the guidelines of the PCPNDT Act. The directive comes after the police busted a foeticide racket in Maharashtra’s Sangli district. The Sangli police had earlier this month arrested a homoeopathic doctor from Mhaisal village in Sangli in connection with the death of a pregnant woman during an abortion at his hospital. The arrest was made a day after 19 aborted foetuses wrapped in polythene bags were found near a stream in the village. The Sangli police suspect that all the 19 were female foetuses. All the hospitals and clinics in Thane have been directed to strictly implement the Pre-Conception and Pre-Natal Diagnostic Techniques (PCPNDT) Act guidelines, said a release issued yesterday by the district administration. Kalyankar held a meeting with the concerned officials in this connection on Wednesday when it was decided that all the hospitals and clinics in Thane would be inspected. According to the release, the sex ratio in Maharashtra is 899 girls per 1,000 boys. The ratio in Thane district was 914 girls per 1,000 boys in 2013-14, 914:1,000 in 2014-15, 907:1,000 in 2015-16, and 897:1,000 till last month for 2016-17, the release said. The PCPNDT Act aims to stop female foeticide and arrest the declining sex ratio in India. Prenatal sex determination is banned under the Act. The district authorities have also announced an award for those who inform about the PCPNDT Act violations. There are 968 registered sonography centres in the district of which 571 are operational at present, the release said.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)

#INDvAUS: Still the concerned captain? When MS Dhoni went and inspected the Ranchi pitch

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Former India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni today made a surprise visit to the Jharkhand State Cricket Association Stadium which will host its maiden Test in less than 10 days’ time.Dhoni was seen having a discussion with the curator as he had a look at the preparations for the crucial game. Jharkhand team sources had earlier said the Ranji captain would head to Bengaluru for the BCCI Awards from Kolkata but headed home and spent time in the stadium.Curator SB Singh however termed it as a routine visit and said it had nothing to do with the upcoming third Test here from March 16-20. “When he’s here, he often visits the stadium for fitness work out and spends long time at the gym. Today was no different. He also saw the wicket and we had an informal discussion. This is not unusual for me,” Singh told PTI. “He has never intervened in pitch preparation in the last four years. Being such a great player, I always look forward to his inputs on the quality of wicket.”The JSCA has prepared three wickets — pitch number four, five and seven — for its debut Test and Singh said all of them will last the distance. “Each of them will behave differently. The team will choose the strip two days before the match. The pitch will suit both the batsmen and bowlers and will definitely last five days.

They also made away with jewellery worth lakhs of rupees and Rs 25,000 in cash from the house. The cash and some of the jewellery have been recovered from the arrested duo. However, the gold ornaments are believed to be in possession of the absconding accused Mallu. Prerna Sah (55), wife of Sah and his mother Shanti Sah (75) were found dead in rooms of his residence in Dehariya area of Haldwani. Their bodies bore injury marks which suggested they had been assaulted with sharp-edged weapons and heavy objects. The officer’s son and daughter-in-law are also in the armed forces.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)
