Day after going missing, Jasprit Bumrah’s grandfather’s body found in Ahmedabad

Indian cricketer Jasprit Bumrah’s grandfather Santokh Singh Bumrah’s body was found in Ahmedabad, a day after his daughter reported a missing persons Complaint. He was 84. According to a report by Ahmedabad Mirror, Santokh was in the city to meet his grandson. An auto driver by profession in Uttarakhand, Santokh was a successful businessman until his son – Jasprit’s father – passed away. The report added that since then, the business went downhill and Santokh had to resort to driving a rickshaw. His daughter Rajinder Kaur, however, alleged that the fast bowler’s mother Daljit Kaur spoke to Santokh, but refused to let him speak to Jasprit. She didn’t even give his phone number. This is when Santokh, determined to meet him, left for Ahmedabad where he went missing. Currently, Jasprit is playing the first ODI between India and Sri Lanka at Dharamshala.

‘Padmavati’ row: History ‘sheeted’ in Chittorgarh

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Chill is in the air, but the Rajasthan government is feeling the heat of protests in Chittorgarh, the home of Padmini (Padmavati). In a knee jerk reaction the archaeology department has covered the stone plaque that had the story of Padmini (Padmavati) inscribed on it. This came after threat from the Shri Rajput Karni Sena (SRKS) to smash it as it contained ‘incorrect history’. The protesters claim that the mirror story was incorrect. Also hundreds, including women, courted arrest on Monday demanding a ban on the film. The mirrors at the Chittorgarh fort, that were supposedly used to show Padmini to Khilji, were vandalized and broken earlier this year allegedly by the SRKS. And curtains to the plaque is being seen as a precautionary measure. Sources in the department said that it was done on the orders of higher authorities.Lokendra Singh Kalvi Patron of SRKS told DNA, “We welcome this move by the archaeology department. It was long due and validates our claims. The plaque showed distorted history. The mirror was invented 1294 in belgium and france that is 8000 miles from Chittorgarh. Khilji supposedly saw Padmini (Padmavati) in the mirror in 1302, just eight years later.”“Khilji took three years to travel from Kandhar to Chittorgarh; a distance of 1100 miles. Even at the speed of a marching army the mirror should take 24 years to travel to Chittorgarh. I wonder how the mirror raced so fast to reach Chittorgarh,” Kalvi said. As part of the ongoing protests by the Sarv Samaj Sangathan and Jauhar Samriti Sansthan, a total 304 persons including two dozen women on Monday courted arrest demanding a ban on the film. They were arrested under section 129 of CrPC. They were later released.

The police had made elaborate arrangements to maintain law and order.According to Govind Singh of the Sarv Samaj Sangathan, “The protests would continue till the film is banned. We have also given a memorandum to the district administration to get the stone plaque removed.” Manju Shekhawat, one of the women who courted arrest said, “We will not let Bhansali distort the history of Padmini (Padmavati)”

Mumbai airport goes green: replaces water in urinals with ammonia-breaking bacteria

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Mumbai’s Chhattrapati Shivaji International Airport recently adopted a method to reduce the use of water in its urinals and cleaning of floors. In the process, the airport has managed to save one lakh litres of water each day.As per a report in Mumbai Mirror, the administration has introduced ammonia-feeding bacteria in urinals.The bacteria convert the ammonia generated due to uric acid accumulation to nitrogen, as soon as the toilet is used.Airport authorities said that they are using a mixture of microbes to do away with using water in its men’s urinals and in mopping its 1,400 acres of floor space across Terminal 2, becoming the first airport to do so.Airport authorities said that the toilets weren’t being used the way they were supposed to be. This left the urinals dirty and frequent cleaning was never the solution.To begin with, airport officials disconnected the auto-sensors connected to the flush, and replaced its water connection with a green mixture comprising of enzymes and bacteria.Besides 200 washrooms, this mixture is also being used to clean 4 lakh odd square metres of surface area at the integrated terminal. Unlike conventional methods of cleaning which require regular touch-ups, the bacteria in the mixture work round the clock.The Indian Green Building Certification (IGBC) has already certified the airport with a platinum rating thanks to the green initiatives undertaken. A green audit undertaken awarded a score of 94 points to T2, the highest score till date, based on its performance in site and facility management, water efficiency, energy efficiency, health and comfort and innovation.MIAL’s use of green chemicals for cleaning and addition to rooftop solar power generation at T2 helped garner the most points under evaluation.

‘No evidence’ of New Year mass sex attacks in Bangalore: Police

The police commissioner of the Indian city tells the BBC there is no evidence sex attacks took place.

Police in Bengaluru urged to investigate New Year attacks on women | Reuters

BENGALURU, India Reports of sexual assaults on women revellers at New Year’s Eve celebrations in Bengaluru have spurred women’s rights activists to demand that police investigate.The attacks, reminiscent of those blamed on migrants in German cities last year, shocked many Indians, since Bengaluru, home to many well-educated professionals, is regarded as safer for women than the capital, New Delhi. Several women were groped and assaulted by a mob in the city’s central business district on Dec. 31 as they celebrated, according to a Reuters witness and a report in the Bangalore Mirror newspaper.”I saw groups of boys deliberately falling over girls,” said the Reuters witness, who was in the area with his family, as he described the screams and attempts of some women to push men away.Sex crimes are common in India, where the National Crime Record Bureau says more than 34,000 rapes were reported in all in 2015, although women sometimes do not report assaults for fear of the associated social stigma.Authorities face criticism for not doing enough to tackle a weak system of law enforcement and policing that leaves women vulnerable.

“The image of the city has been tarnished,” said Mathews Philip, an executive director for Human Rights Education and Monitoring.Police have said they are looking at surveillance footage but had not received any complaints of sexual assault.

    The Karnataka State Commission for Women on Tuesday said it had asked the city’s police commissioner for a detailed report, although it, too, said it not received any complaints.Bangalore Police Commissioner Praveen Sood could not be reached for comment. Police would investigate “if we are given coordinates of any lady molested,” he said on social network Twitter earlier on Tuesday.Every year, hundreds of people flock to pubs and restaurants in Bengaluru’s M.G. Road and Brigade Road to ring in the New Year, with traffic barred for the celebrations, which turned chaotic this time, witnesses said.

“Many girls were molested, abused or groped,” said Anantha Subramanyam, chief photographer of the Bangalore Mirror, who took photographs that were published in the newspaper. He took pictures of women fleeing without their shoes, begging for help and weeping, he added.

Drunk driving down 20% on New Year’s Eve; Mumbai police collects Rs 4 lakh in fines

The Mumbai traffic police collected nearly four lakh rupees in fines, while booking 565 motorist for drunk driving, a report in The Times of India said.

The report added that the number of drunk drivers booked by the traffic police on the New Year’s Eve dipped 20 percent compared to last year.

However, Traffic Commissioner, Milind Bharambe chose not to come to any conclusion over the lower numbers.

“The cases might have dropped as compared to the same period last year, but we will have to observe the figure of such drives for some more time before drawing any conclusion”, Mumbai Mirror quoted the police officer as saying.

On last New Year’s Eve, the Mumbai traffic police booked 705 for drunk driving, which was a rise after witnessing a dip in the numbers in 2013 and 2014, when 570 and 523 had been booked under the same offence, a January 2, 2016 report in The Indian Express said.

However, the report noted that the number of people booked for drunk driving peaked in 2012, when 840 were fined.

A total of 3365 bikers and motorists were booked on the New Year’s Eve for various offences other than drunk driving.

Bengaluru shame: Police of little help as several women molested on New Year’s Eve

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The New Year’s eve on Saturday witnessed chaos on the streets of Bengaluru, reported Bangalore Mirror. The city’s MG Road and Brigade Road saw women getting molested, children getting scared, as male friends and relatives had a tough time protecting them from unruly men. This was despite the city’s “elaborate” security measures under which 1,500 policemen had been deployed in the area.In addition to the entire city police force, men from reserve battalions were also deployed on the city streets to maintain law and order during New Year’s Eve celebrations, claimed former city police commissioner NS Megharikh, who was in charge of the night’s security measures in the city.However, none of these arrangements were of any help to the women who became easy targets for drunk hooligans, forcing some of them to literally take off their heeled shoes and run for help. Being terribly outnumbered on the streets surrounded by thousands of revellers, the cops could intervene only in certain situations depending on how bad it was.Not a single case of molestation or harassment has been registered despite photographic evidence and eyewitness accounts.Sandeep Patil former deputy commissioner (central) of the city, under whose purview Brigade Road and MG Road fall, told Bangalore Mirror that a number of women did approach the cops seeking help when they got separated from their family members and friends. “So we used our public address systems to locate and our men ensured they faced no hardship,” he said.This was in contradiction to what some of the other police personnel deployed on the streets had to say. A woman police officer deployed on Church Street had to chase away a couple of men trying to molest and strip a drunk woman. “It is very disturbing to see women caught in such helpless situation,” she told Mirror.Ajai Kumar Singh, retired director-general of police told the daily, “It has been the case since the 70s. Handling the New Year crowd in Bengaluru is very difficult, but that means the police department should have a clear plan and be well-prepared to ensure there are no major incidents.”
