Gauri’s death invites national outrage, after Nirbhaya

Published

on

The most dastardly act of the gruesome murder of a women journalist and a committed social activist fighting courageously for rights of the women and down trodden and equally countering the communal and divisive tendencies has resulted in an all round condemnation and expression of furious dissent against the forces that be, by journalists, intellectuals, socio political organisations, youths, students and women nationally. Such a dastardly act of a diabolical murder in a row has while made everybody in the country sad, anguished and utterly shocked  there are still people with chauvinistic bent of mind who are shamelessly planting fake and biased news terming the deceased woman journalist as an extortionist, biased and even vindicating the horrendous act,  for her actions of opposing the forces of religious fundamentalists and bigotry.

Instead of expressing their tributes for the departed soul as a normal human being, these disgruntled elements are rather misusing the social networking sites to ferociously and erroneously counter those speaking in favor or expressing solidarity or sympathy with the victim journalist, her cause, ideology or writings. The point is, can a voice of dissent in a free democracy be scuttled or smothered by gun ? Does our constitution or the law permit anybody to kill those who represent ideology or writing against some other thought or VICHARDHARA. Is such killing of a progressive journalist who’s against fake news, against forces of division, reaction and fanaticism or who democratically oppose a system,  permissible in the country of Gandhi and Lord Budha , the father of the nation and apostles of peace.

If fundamentalism, chauvinism or bigotry is not responsible for such dastardly actions of shocking trails of murders in a row then why is it that only Dabolkar, Kulbargi, Pansare and Gauri Lankesh are murdured with guns from point blank range and why is it that the culprits are not caught ever after several years of investigation? asks script writer Saleem Javed in a tweet without naming them. Here, why so much of fuss is being created by planting so much  highly objectionable news against the deceased journalist who died in cold blood just because she was a vociferous and eloquent opposer of orthodox practices, communalism and religious fanaticism. These dissenters of her say she was a leftist and a progressive and therefore opposed to the right wing politics but then should it mean that she should be killed brutally and that those standing with her family and ideology are traitors, extortionist,   anti national and bad people even if they are well read, well educated, patriotic and respectable people of the country. The fact of the matter is killing of any human being whether he or she is from right, left, center or free thinking ideology is highly condemnable and should be unitedly opposed as the criminal or the murderers never represent any thought or ideology. We should respect human beings n their existence first and any physical assault, violence or killing is totally unacceptable in a civilized society. Even the prime minister Narendra Modi has come out heavily and strongly against the shocking incidents of lynchings in various parts of the country and had warned of severe action against the perpetrators. He has out-rightly condemned violence in the name of faith in the land of Gandhi and Budha.

The various political parties of the country should give up giving political color to such dastardly killings and instead work for the expeditious arrest of the hardened criminals so that they can be tried severely under the strictest sections of the law. It’s anguishing and disturbing to note that India has till now witnessed 66 RTI activists having been killed in various parts of the country with five committing suicides. The trend of killing still goes on. Meanwhile after the planting of highly objectionable tweets, even expressing pleasure over the sad demise of journalist Gauri Lankesh the authorities concerned have warned of seizing the twitter accounts of such ruthless users. The way Gauri’s death invited national outrage, after the mind boggling Nirbhaya episode, it’s for sure that her untimely death will inspire many many more to follow her footsteps.

List of 29 Pak sponsored hard core terrorists prepared ! Security forces to eliminate them. Govt’s foremost priority!

Published

on

After the imposition of president’s rule in strife torn Jammu and Kashmir with the snapping of ties by the Bhartiya Janata Party with PDP, the state administration has been geared up to the fullest with the state governor M. M. Vohra convening an all party meeting on 22nd June and exploring the possibilities of dealing stringently n with extreme precision with the hard core domestic as well as the Pak sponsored terrorists.

Just after the state assembly having been brought under suspended animation and proclamation of the president’s rule the octogenerian governor of the trouble torn state who is at the helm of the state for the last ten years also deliberated with top officials of Army, Security forces, Central and State Intelligence and police to find out ways and means to crush the ongoing invasion and attacks of the militants who are day in and day out claiming the lives of citizens and security forces troopers seamlessly and without any fear or Army terror.

Yesterday, in Navshera village of terrorist infested Anantnag district the Indian Army killed four hard core local terrorists believing in the ideology of the ISIS and responsible for several deaths of civilians and Armymen. About 20 civilians were seriously injured in the hectic exchange of cross fire which lasted for several hours.

After the imposition of the president’s rule in the state this is the biggest action by the security forces who are seriously combing the jungles and living human settlements in the four highly terrorist infested districts of J&K namely Anantnag, Pulwama, Sopore and Bandipura etc.

The union government and the Indian Army have now made up it full mind to eliminate the terrorists who have wrecked havoc in Kashmir for the last decade.

It is believed that the National Security Advisor Ajit Dobhal is directing the operations from behind with immense precision and perfection.

Meanwhile, as per the latest news pouring in on television channels, the state administration and Indian Army has prepared a list of about 29 hard core terrorists being aided and abetted by neighbouring Pakistan active in Kashmir for elimination.

The list include 11 Laskare Tayyeba, two hizbul mujahiddeen and some ISIS supported militants. The security forces have vowed to find and kill these hard core terrorists in the near future.

After the beef up of the security appratus in the state and elimination of terrorists as a one point programme of the state and central administration the terrorists are running helter and skelter in the state trying to get holed up in their clandestine hide outs badly terrorised of the Army action.

After the incessant killings of the civilians and the army troopers in Kashmir and increase in the incidents of stone peltings for the last four years since prime minister Narendra Modi assumed power at the centre there have been tremendous amount of resentment and disenchantment amongst the people and opposition parties in the state of J&K as well as nationally.

The recent anti India derogatory UNHCR report holding India responsible for massive human rights violations in Kashmir, outrightly rejected by India and 6 other countries joining it in the United Nations expressing pro India solidarity, has finally compelled the Modi government to snap ties with the PDP government led by Mehbooba Mufti who was considered to be soft towards the stone pelters on Indian army jawans and terrorists including the separatists Hurriyat conference.

The national elections of 2019 are also nearing fast and the BJP led NDA could not take any chance by being non serious on the sensitive Kashmir issue which has serious international repurcussions and ramifications, as well. Hence, this action plan to eliminate all hard core terrorists from the soil of Kashmir and bring it back on rails as a peaceful and tranquil state.

Meanwhile, there are speculations that the central leadership is looking for a highly matured political leader for the post of the J&K governor instead of a retired Army officer or a civil servant as the Kashmir issue is more of political nature than an issue of law and order.

There had been eminent civil servants and IPS including retired Army chiefs having been governors but the situation in trouble torn J&K has not improved even an inch ahead.

The toll has risen tremendously and no way out could be found to this vexed imbroglio except bloodshed n incessant casualties till date.

While the present incumbent who is 82 years old N. N. Vohra has been on the post for the last ten years since 2008, Krishna Rao, Girish Saxena and IAS Jagmohan and others have been the governors, in the past bringing little relief to the situation.

Kashmir being a political imbroglio, the union government is interested in the appointment of a veteran political person with credibility, than any retired Army General, IPS or a civil servant.

But the the Kashmir situation has come to such a sorry pass with Pakistan and its sponsored terrorists, hell bent upon creating havoc in Kashmir.

The trouble torn state now needs a perfect and highly experienced Armyman with full discreationery powers to act freely as was the case with IPS, Gill who resolved the insurgency in Punjab with a heavy hand finally bringing peace and tranquility which was badly infested with Khalistan problem having taken heavy toll of innocent citizens and security forces at the hands of terrorists demanding separate KHALISTAAN.

Open gang rivalry at Burari in broad daylight take three tolls in a shootout

Published

on

Delhi has become a hub for hardened criminals and the incidents of gang wars, chain snatchings and assault of women are on the rise with people of the capital city having no option but to be at the mercy of these anti social elements.

Not a single days goes when the newspapers are not full of news of gang wars or incidents of chain snatching, killings, women assaults, rapes and physical violence.

If one goes by the statistics of the Crime records bureau it is beyond his or her expectation to find the statistics of gangwars, chain snatchings and physical assaults and incidents of rapes and women assaults increasing day by day and beyond the capacity of the law enforcing agencies to bring them under control.

Just today at Burari Chowk two gangs fought each other in broad day light killing two gangsters of the rival group and an innocent women.

In all about five rounds were fired in this violent gangwar with three on the spot casualties with severely injured two gangsters.

The entire incident was caught on CCTV camera displaying the gangsters flashing pistols openly and firing at each other now being shown on television news.

The public around went helter and skelter to seek refuge while the Delhi police petrol party or policemen from the nearest police stations were conspicuous by their absense.

The warring gangsters were so undeterred or least worried by the police that they conveniently fired, roaming around, as if they have no fear of the police.

The residents of Burari are badly shocked and shaken by this broad day light gang war that killed three lives including an innocent woman with no fault of hers.

The police arrived after everybody fled the scene. However, the CCTV footage has captured the scenes of the crime showing each n every gangster waving their pistols, and killing three with injuries to two gangsters.

The majority of the unauthorised colonies situated in Delhi’s outskirsts have become the major hub for the perpetuation of the criminal activities and gangsterism and the police is doing very little to control the situation. The Mitraon village, Najafgarh’s protracted gang war that started with a disputed piece of land has so far claimed several lives of the families in dispute and is still on.

Today’s Burari shootout in North Delhi which claimed three lives with grievous injuries to two has shaken peoples’ confidence on police uthorities as their saviour or custodian.

The Crime Branch of Delhi police have already taken the crime scene in its possession and its collecting the finger print, the bullet covers and
every possible clue with precision to solve the case and arrest the culprits. The police is extremely confident to bring the culprits to justice at the earliest.They have also taken the CCTV footage in their possesion.

Published

on

The prime minister Narendra Modi has vowed to teach a stringent lesson to the terrorists who killed the army troopers including Aurangzeb and a senior journalist Shujaat Bhukhari during Ramzan ceasefire in Kashmir a few days ago.

These terrorists would not be spared at any cost and should be killed within 72 hours to avenge the death of our patriotic brave heart soldiers said the rime minister.

Meanwhile, four hardcore terrorists have been killed by the Army in Baandipura sector on the first day of the government’s ceasefire.

The union government has also lifted the one month old cease fire deadline today . The home minister Rajnath Singh said that after the lifting of ceasefire the Army has resumed its counter terrorists operations as before but with more vigour and vitality.

Sources reveal that the Army operation has been intensified further and every effort is being made to kill maximum number of terrorists cladestinely operating from Bandipura forests and other areas being aided and abetted by ISI.

The Indian Army chief Vipin Rawat today visited the house of slained soldier Aurangzeb and expressed his heartfelt condolenses to the bereaved family. Genl. Rawat assured the bereaved family of all possible help including the adequate financial compensation. He said that the brutal killing and sacrifice of Aurangzeb would not go waste and the Army would not spare a single terrorist involved in the murder.

The Army has enhanced the combing operation and there are unambiguous indications that not a single militant will be spared in the near future.

It may be recalled that despite the union government announcing the ceasefire during the holy Ramazan the terrorists never relented and continued their attacks on a journalist and four army troopers who succumbed to the militants’ bullets including the incidents of massive stone throwing on the Armymen and security forces in Anantnag.

Brave heart Aurangzed preferred death than lying to militants

Brave heart Aurangzed preferred death than lying to militants

A video released by the Hizbul Muzahiddeen militants who first abducted and then brutally killed a young Army soldier in retaliation , posted in Shopean district of Kashmir involved in the encounter of three Pak sponsored terrorists with Major Shukla namely Aurangzeb whose father and brother had been in Army answered all the queries of the militants bravely without telling a single lie despite knowing the severe consequenses. Brave heart Aurangzeb could have lied and asked for reprieve but he told the truth and preferred the deadliest death. Salutes.

The vedio which has become viral in the social media is showing the deceased brave heart, Aurangzeb having been tied to a tree with the vedio camera focussed on him facing volley of questions from his captors pertaining to the killing and thereafter allegedly mutilating the bodies of hard core terrorists Sameer Tiger, Talaa and one more.

These Hizbul Mujahideen militants were killed in an encounter a few days ago by a team of Armymen led by Major Shukla whom late Aurangzeb was also acompanying as his personal security guard. Aurangzeb had in the past too killed number of militants and was very much in the hit list of the hardcore militants of HM in Kashmir. Aurangzeb was abducted on 14th June while he was going on leave to his family on the eve of Eid.

It is believed that it might be the jungles of Pulwama where the Army trooper was tied before being killed brutally. It was the same fateful day when one of the leading journalists’ of Kashmir and the editor – in – chief of Rising Kashmir was gunned down alongside his two body guards in their twenties.

In the vedio late Aurangzed was shown tied to a tree in a jungle and being questioned by his abductors. He was asked whether he was in the killing party. The answer from the deceased soldier was in affirmation. The second question posed was : Was he the guard of Major Shukla protecting him during or before the encounter. The answer was yes.

The third question was : Did they got the official permission for the encounter. Aurangzeb replied in yes again. Did you killed one of the terrorists ? Yes, said the brave soldier. Did you killed terrorists earlier as well, asked the person in vedio? Yes came the answer. Did you mutilated the bodies? No , said Aurangzeb adding that he had gone away after the firing as his hand was injured.

He further said that it was not he or Major Shukla who mutilated the bodies but it was because of the gun fires. The terrorists never agreed on his honest replies and killed him brutally thereafter on the spot, though the killing vedio wasn’t shot or exhibited publicly.

Meanwhile even on the day of Ramzan hundreds of misguided angered youths are being showened pelting stones on security forces on television channels in Srinagar and Anantnag.

On the other hand hundreds of thousands of people raising anti establishment , anti militant and pro Bukhari slogans demanding death for the culprits, covered one kilometre distance on foot with the body of slained journalist Shujaat Bukhari in his native village Kreeri 37 kms away from the state capital where he was creamated with grief and tears in the eyes of countless friends, supporters and well wishers of the deceased journalist.

Shujaat Bukhari murder during Ramzan ceasefire is an open challenge to the peace lovers by Pak sponsored terrorists

Published

on

The brutal gunning down of the senior journalist, an eminent peace activist and the editor in chief of Rising Kashmir, Shujaat Bukhari alongwith his two armed body guards in strife torn Kashmir yesterday proves beyond doubt that Jammu, Kashmir is not a safe haven for journalists any more. Shujaat Bukhari was one of the most reputed journalists of J&K having worked in prestigious Kashmir Times, The Hindu and thereafter starting his own newspaper The Rising Kashmir in 2008 after quitting The Hindu, spanning a jouralistic career of more than three decades.

A true champion of peace and relentless fighter working hard to resolve the vexed Kashmir imbroglio he was the target of the Pak sponsored terrorists and the ISI in particular having been attacked earlier as well, for which he was accorded the armed security of two state police guards. His brother Basharat Bukhari is the minister of Horticulture in the current PDF BJP government led by Mufti Mehbooba.

Though killings of civilians, armymen and security forces troopers including militants have become the order of the day in the strife torn Kashmir which has witnessed more than 65 thousand kilings since 1990 what’s even more worrisome and anguishing is the fact that now the representatives of the fourth estate, the scribes like Shujaat Bukhari who were really championing the peace process between Pakistan, India and the Kashmiries including the militants since a long time are also being eliminated paraticularly at a time when the state was witnessing a month long ceasefire imposed by the union government during pious festival RAMZAN, with the earnest hope to regain peoples’ confidence in the valley and acompany peace and tranquility in the extremely strife torn J & K.

But the gruesome murder of the champion of the peace who was relentlessly involved in bringing tranquility to the area suffering from core militancy since several decades resulting in heavy bloodshed has once again proved home the point that the enemy nation Pakistan, its ISI and its’ aided and abetted terror organisations like Laskare Tayyeba, Hizbul Mujahiddeen and other outfits are in no mood to reconcile giving unambiguous signals that its ready to wage a war with India or is trying to provoke us to go for a serious misadventure with it i.e. Pakistan.

The issue has now adopted serious proportions and dimensions. How long will the Indian government wait now and what for, ask the people of the country?

The militants in Jammu and Kashmir are emerging out of unknown caves clandestinely in unlimited numbers and not hesitating to kill civilians, security force personels, Army troopers and now journalists. Hundreds of thousands of young jawans have so far lost their precious lives.

However, our forces have so far killed thrice the number of militants and Pak sponsored terrorists, undoubtedly i.e more than 32 thousand militants since 1990 but they are still erupting seamlessly and continuing their killing spree. When it comes to the killings of the journalists in Jammu and Kashmir the figures are no less staggering.

Since 1990, 19 journalists have been killed in Jammu and Kashmir, including Bukhari.

Their deaths have been at the hands of militants, paramilitary forces, state police and the Indian armed forces.

Under the threat perception of the state, one must also not forget how much self censorship a journalist in a conflict-afflicted state like Jammu and Kashmir has to practice.

Compare this to the Committee to Protect Journalists’s numbers from across India – 27 journalists in India have been killed since 1992 for their work, and in all, over 77 journalists and media workers have been killed in India between 1992 and 2018 and several hundred injured.

Though the motive has been established in some cases, the investigation in most cases remains as just so many loose ends.

What happens ultimately ? Messages of condolenses with crocadile tears appear in newspapers and television channels from ministers, senior police officers, big wigs and those at the helm of affairs. Some financial compensation also arrives simultaneously. Even jobs to the next of the kin are granted in exceptional cases.

And finally we are again at square one after few days, ready to confront such anguishing casualties and stereotype of the same tradition of condolenses and shedding of crocadile tears. Just ask the parents who lose their loving son, wife a beloved husband, children, their affectionate bread giver father.

Would the honourable prime minister, Home minister and Defence minister guarantee peace to the citizen of strife torn Kashmir and India is a moot question for which everybody is awaiting for a suitable answer ? What’s your take friends?

MAN EATER casualties on the rise in Uttarakhand. Govt should formulate a concrete policy to save human lives !

Published

on

The prominent shooter and killer of 90 maneaters in the forests of Garhwal and Kumaon himalayas, about 8 decades ago, is again remembered today after the incessant horrifying killings of human beings in the villages of Uttarakhand, spreading terror around and the government agencies, particularly the forest department doing literally nothing to protect the precious lives of the inhabitants living in interior villages.

There was a time when these leopards and tigers used to roam and confine themselves within the highly dense jungles and would harm the human beings only when they posed them any sort of danger.
These predators, then used to attack human lives in retaliation to protect themselves.

But unfortunately, during the last two decades, especially in the previous five years after the increasing construction activities like road constructions, construction of dams and infrastructural developments around and in the forests, the wild life has been badly disturbed, displaced and are coming nearer to houses for want of prey.

The jungles of Uttarakhand are bereft of the wild life and the leopards, tigers whose main food is flesh find it difficult to arrage food as increasing jungle fires have also imbalanced the ecology resulting dearth of wild animals shifting elsewhere.

According to a confirmed statistics there are about 150 maneaters in Uttarakhand and the government and the wild life still seems to be more concerned to protect the maneaters than the lives of the inhabitants living in villages despite so much of human killings.

In just last one year, good number of brutal killings of Uttarakhand villagers have come to the fore in Garhwal and Kumaon regions and the death involves those of children, old aged persons and women who go for fodder in the jungles. Majority of these maneater killings have been noticed from roadsides and near the human settlements.

Just fifteen days ago a man eater brutally killed a 65 year old man near a bus shed in Pauri Garhwal’s Chowbatta khal area followed by two killings in Manila, Kumaon area where two children aged 7 were dragged to the jungles several metres away by these maneaters n brutally killed on the spot. But the forest division could not do anything to avert these incidents despite so much of hullaballoo and concern.

On 11 June in Bageshwar a seven year old boy named Deepak son of an eighty percent handicapped Dalit Diwane Ram became the easy prey of the maneater who dragged the boy from his house till the nearby jungle and ate half of his body.

In retaliation the angry villagers in Harinagari area of Uttarakhand’s Bageshwar district set a forest on fire Monday evening. The boy’s half-eaten body was found in the nearby forest area on Tuesday morning.

A crowd of over a thousand gathered in the village due to which the foresters could not go into the affected area during the night, forest officials said. Harinagari is around 25 kms from the district headquarters.

There is terror all around and the local residents including the traumatic parents of the deceased are demanding adequate financial compensation including killing of the maneaters at all costs.

The moot point is as to how long will the inhabitants of Uttarakhand, particularly the villagers live under the terror of maneaters’ unpredictable attacks which can happen at any unknown place and time.

Hundreds of such predators are roaming freely near the roadsides and the human settlements in Uttarakhand and clandestinely look for human flesh.

It has almost become an order of the day as such terrorising incidents of leopard attacks appear in newspapers after every three days with the hapless and ignorant forest department literally doing nothing to chalk out a concrete strategy to counter this increasing menace.

Since Uttarakhand comprises of 70 or more % of the forest cover Tigers, leopards and Panthers roam in these jungles freely and in view of the dearth of animal prey they usually remain in search of human meat near villages and even isolated houses in towns.

Finding an easy prey they attack on human beings on roadsides, houses near jungles and lonely places and fulfill their hunger.

Though there is no definite statistics available in government records about those killed by maneaters but it is believed that the number has crossed thousands.

The government should hire the expert shooters and grab these maneaters physically and if not possible to catch them physically, should get rid of them as human life is more precious than these dreaded maneaters who’d let loose their reign of terror in entire Uttarakhand. An expert and specialised shooter like Jim Corbet of the British area is the need of the hour.

It’s not yet revealed whether the culprits has been caught till now by the police department. However a case of accidental death due to negligence driving has been registered against the unknown persons.

What is more shocking about this unfortunate case is that no minister or political personality including any senior doctor of the hospital has visited the grievously injured to take care of them in order to administer adequate timely treatment despite the fact that these two youngsters were in dire need of immediate medical treatment to ensure their addmission in ICU for resustication etc.

Suicide of a 28 year old young UPSC aspirant raises many questions?

Published

on

THE unfortunate death of a 28 year of Union Public Service Commission aspirant from Karnataka n son of a retired govt employee Varun Subhash Chandra through commiting suicide by hanging to the fan at his Rajendra Nagar house in New Delhi on 4th of June as he was not allowed to appear in the preliminary entrance examination for being merely four minutes late despite his repeated humble requests has literally shattered me from inside as well as, might be, millions of others in the country who’d gone through this most distressing, shocking and anguishing news.

What is bad about this whole story is, the invigilator on duty never gives a rethinking or adopts a humanitarian angle to excuse the examinee and allow him for the exam than just denying him the chance for being just three, four minutes late. One would appreciate that the the person appearing for entrance exams, particularly for job avenues is already under tremendous mental and psychological pressure due to the poor or unstable econmic family backgroud. He or she devote their several days in preparation for such exams and are usually under abject pressure.

On reaching examination centres they get late for various compelling reasons like traffic congestion, hot weather conditions or their house being far away from the examination centres. The government agencies, conducting such exams should give a grace of atleast 15 minutes in such cases and instead, being adamant should satisfy themselves with genuine reasoning and allow entrance examination aspirants to appear than to just arrogantly, kick them out for merey being four minutes late as was the case with the 28 year old studious aspirant Varun Subhash Chandra.

There are hundreds of options to resolve such issues of late arrivals of the aspirants instead, sending them back resulting in cases of suicides and subsequent deaths. Majority of the students or such aspirants of UPSC exams do several days or months’ hard work in preparations in order to qualify them with flying colours and also invest hard earned money of their parents in such preparations. Therefore they are under mental and psycological pressures and are therefore unintentionally late by few minutes in cases of exception at examination centres as was this case. There are several other genuine reasons too for being negligibly late. In this case Varun had gone in a huff in some other Sarvodaya School in Paharganj construing it for the examination centre as was therefore late by mere 4 minutes.

But being harsh, adamant and non coperative with them is no solution to the problem. Now who would be resposible for the untimely death of this young gentleman and can the UPSC return back this son to the most traumatic and angushing parents. A brilliant son has lost his life just because his repeated genuine requests to let him sit in the exam were turned down by the person on duty in the examination hall for being merely four minute late and that too since he went to a wrong centre in a hurry n huff.

This is simply absurd and unacceptable. How can any one play with one’s career by just disallowing him or her to sit in exams for being late for few minutes without even thinking about the aftermath consequences. There are hundreds of such unfortunate cases happening all over the country in which intelligent and studious students are commiting suicides due to the adamant and non cooperative attitude of the people or officers in the sysyem. On the one hand we allegedly witness hundreds of thousands of cases of open cheating in exams at the behest of certain corrupt officials or managements of certain private institutions in league with the authorities concerned and cases of fake degress with the involvement of ministers and higher ups, going unnoticed or caught after they achieve political benefits on the other hand the innocent entrants are denied chances to appear in entrant examinations for just being few minutes late leading to suicides under psychlogical trauma n pressures as was the case with brilliant 28 year old boy from Karnataka.

Just imagine, what would be the conditiin of his reyired father, mother and the entire family who’d imparted him goodeducation, invested so much money to nurse his academic career and who was wishing to clear the UPSC entrance exam for a better future by seeking a job for future sustenance and career making. I am stunned, shocked and anguished. Such traumatic and shocking incidents warrants government agencies to find a wayout by relaxing rules to the convenience of the candidates appearing for various entrant exams government departments so as to ensure non occurance of suicides that happen due to the depression caused by denial to appear in these competetive entrance tests. In addition, the family of the deceased should be adequately financially compensated and an impartial inquiry launched to transparently arrive at the aspects of this unfortunate suicide death.

My heartfelt symapathies for the bereaved family and a question to one and all:

WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS VALUABLE YOUNG UNTIMELY DEMISE FOR BEING LATE FOR JUST FOUR MINUTES ?

Maneater attacks continue unabatedly in UTTARAKHAND VILLAGES

Published

on

On the one hand the jungles of Uttarakhand are on incessant fire, causing collosal loss to wildlife and the flora and fauna including the environment of the Uttarakhand hills, on the other hand the spree of man eater attacks on human lives is shockingly and anguishingly on with no sign of any end to this dreaded menace.

The inefficient forest department of Uttarakhand already devoid of sufficient staff has proved to be a complete failure till now and so are those sitting at the helm at the political and administrative levels.

According to sources though not fully confirmed about 150 leopards, tigers and panthers have become maneater and have created hovoc in Uttarakhand’s Garhwal and Kumaon regions thus not only terrorising the inhabitants of the interior villages but also affecting the tourist influx .

In the past six months, several incidents of dreaded man eater attacks have come to light killing women, children n senior citizens. But there had been no efforts from the side of the Forest department to reduce such incidents of man eater attacks.

Just a few days ago two children had been brutally killed by these maneaters/ predators in Kumaon and several others in Pauri Garhwal district.

Similarly the incidents of wild bear attacks are also on the rise, particularly in Chamoli district of Uttarakhand.

The photograph below is of a hard lucked man of Chowbattakhal Tehsil in Pauri Garhwal district of Uttarakhand where this innocent villager aged 65 years, namely Virendra Prasad Sundriyal, resident of village Sundrai, Kulkanddhidh was brutally killed by the man eater leopard near a bus shed on road side where the latter was sitting clandestinely in search of the prey.

The mutilated body of the deceased was found by the revenue police after several hours. The angry and furious villagers angrily protested in front of the forest staff raising slogans for their ineficiency and complacense.

The irate residents were demanding dousing of the jungle fire and subsequent killing of the maneater.

Meanwhile sources reveal that the maneater leapard has been captured by the forest division and is in the custody of the VAN VIBHAG.

Though the incidents of maneater attacks are already on the rise but after the jungle fires the maneaters are thronging towards villages and human settlements in search of refuge and food and the human beings are becoming their easy prey, particularly the women and children and at time the senior citizens.

If you ask for the accurate statistical data from the forest division of Uttarakhand they have none and even if they give it its too unauthentic. The reason being if they give the factual data their inefficiency and complacense would be revealed and subsequently would invite penal action.

Niharika Ghia writes: According to a newspaper report, UK forest department lacks the factual database on victims of animal attacks. The activists allege that complilation of factual data of wild animal attack victims will expose the inefficiency of the forest officials in tackling such conflicts. The officials do not wish to get caught in this so the actual figures are not been registered. Pauri has had the highest number of leopard attacks but unfortunately the database is not being registered correctly. I guess the fencing around the forest area as well as CCTV cameras is not done. Besides adequate supply of food will prevent the wild animals coming near villages. What a merciless attack.

The NHRC’s notice to these senior most bureaucrats on missing children definitely speaks of its seriousness on the burning issue of trafficked children nationally.

It may be recalled that several socio political organisations of the capital under the Banner of Search My Child, a popular website on missing children, all over the country, has last week marched in good numbers from Mandi House to Parliament, particularly, women and parents of missing children, holding playcards and raising slogans against the police, administration and the authorities concerned demanding immediate setting up of special fast track child rescue cells at all the police stations of the country, law for registration of zero FIR in any part of the country regarding the missing child, tracing of missing children at the earliest by the authorities concerned, adequate financial compensation to the traumatic families of the victimised child and establishment of proper and effective cordination between the various state and the central police force to trace the missing children speedily compounded with fast track inquiry in such matters.

A memorandum was also handed over to the prime minister Narendra Modi’s office at South Block, New Delhi by Kusum Kandwal Bhatt of Search My Child and her dedicated team of women volunteers alongwith the parents of the missing children.

The movement for search of missing children gained momentum few months before after a child girl of merely four years old, namely Kashish Rawat went mysteriously missing from her Sector 22, Noida House, about two and a half years ago.

The parents of the child and various socio political organisations of Uttarakhand in Delhi have done their best by approaching all the member of parliaments of Uttarakhand in Delhi, union home minister Rajnath Singh, former and present chief ministers of UP, Akhilesh Yadav and Yogi Aditya Nath, her MP wife Dimple Yadav and RS MP from UK Raj Babber, the present and past SPs of Noida Police, all the senior police officials and submission of several memorandums, including wide coverage in print and electronics media but shamefully and unfortunately, of no avail.

It’s not even clear whether Kashish Rawat and several other such missing children are still dead or alive. The most ignorant and the complacent attitude and posture of the Noida police authorities towards finding Kashish Rawat despite so much of exercise has finally enthused and energised selfless women like Kusum Kandwal Bhatt and others who took the cudgels of the movement in their hands and organised a massive protest march and demonstration from Mandi House to Parliament street under scorching sun on 12th May comprising od several hundred children, women and men and appealed to the prime minister to take suo motto of the burning cases of hundreds of thousands of missing children countrywide who are sold illegally after being trafficked after kidnapping and forced into prostitution, beggary, forcible domestic jobs under challenging conditions or arbitrarily sold to the parents against huge monetary profit in other states and countries abroad.
