Kejrival expresses serious concern over five murders yesterday in Delhi. Delhi police says they were due to personal enmity

The chief minister of Delhi Arvind Kejrival who is usually at loggerheads with the central government ruled by BJP and the Delhi police which is under the jurisdiction of Ministry of home affairs has expressed his serious concern over the five back to back incidents of killings in various parts of Delhi yesterday.

Delhi Chief minister has tweeted that Five murders have taken place in Delhi in the last 24 hours and is extremely serious situation. I appeal to @ Lt GovDelhi & @ HMO India to urgently look into the law and order situation of the national capital.

The Delhi police taking special note of the Delhi chief minister’s tweet has replied to Arvind Kejrival, Lt governor Delhi and Home minister,, India in the twitter handle of Delhi police : The murders have all been confirmed to be personal enmity related. Accused previously known to victim and already arrested in some cases.

Overall heinous crime in 2019 is down by 10.5% . Crime by use of fire arms are down by 5.65 % . Crime against women are down by 11.5%.

The Delhi police through the tweet meant that it was not the breakdown of the law and order situation or negligence of the Delhi pokice as the five murders in diffetent locations of Delhi took place due to personal animosity, not due to the lack on the part of police authorities. Instead it patted itself saying that the crime graph in the capital has rather come down compared to the previous years.

There is not a iota of doubt that despite the best efforts of the Delhi police incidents of murders, snatchings, thefts and robberies are incessantly happening n peoples’ life in jeopardy.

The solution ratio is comparatively quite less and good number of cases in the context of chain and mobile snatchings including eve teasings and women assaults are also not reported adequately for the apprehension of retaliation from criminals.

You open newspapers every morning and you’ll find number of cases pertaining to frauds, murders, assaults, rapes, chain snatchings and women insecurity.

The shortage of Delhi police staff and majority of the Delhi police being involved in VIP patronage and security is also one of the reasons for non resolution of cases and spurt in crime rate.

The AAM AADMI government of Delhi has been demanding separate state hood of Delhi since long but of no awail. The law and order is the central subject and the Delhi police is under the union government’s ministry of home affairs with Delhi’s leutenant governor as its chief. The relations between Delhi CM Arvind Kejrival and the Delhi police has not been in good terms due to the latter’s being under the centre’s influence.

Kejrival has recently raised a controversy in the media by saying that he is afraid that he may be attacked by his own body guards who are from Delhi police as was late prime minister IndiraGandhi was assasinated.

In the past too Arvind Kejrival had quarrels with senior Delhi police officials and the union government on certain issues hyped too much in the media.

The recent concern of Delhi CM Arvind Kejrival regarding five murders in Delhi through a tweet while raises the law and order issue in the public domain but the reply of Delhi police about bringing some of the culprits to justice and lessening of heinous crime and women related crime rate in Delhi this year definitely gives some relief to Delhi citizens.

But it remains to be seen whether the law and order situation in the capital city of Delhi really improves in the near future as well to the fullest satisfaction of all its citizens or not.

The supreme court of India has strongly criticized and rapped the Uttar Pradesh police and the government for showing extreme hurry and desperation in arresting journalist Prashant Kanojia while hearing the Habeas Corpus petition filed by the wife of arrested journalist Jagisha Arora.

The apex court granted immediate bail to the arrested scribe and directed the UP government to release him on bail forthwith, subject to the final results of the on going investigations. The jurists said has anybody ever heard of such arrests for tweets ? How can the freedom of speech and expression be gagged in a democratic society?

The court has however also said that the journalists or anybody using the social media platforms should think himself/ herself as responsible citizens, exercise restraint and avoid passing or writing derogatory remarks against anyone especially without corroboration or evidence.

However, while passing the bail orders the court has not taken the tweets of Prashant Kanojia under consideration but issued clear instructions that no derogatory remarks should be written or tweeted against anybody in social media.

It also asked the state police to carry on the investigations but Kanojia should be immediately released on bail.

It may be recalled that apart from Prashant Kanojia, who has been charged under section 500 and 61 of the IPC for his derogatory on line comments against the UP CM and posting a woman’s vedio casting aspersions on Yogi Aditya Nath and subsequently arresting him, two other journalists, one Channel News Head of Nation Live and its editor Shukla have also been arrested and two other employees who absconded employees are being searched around for arrests for incessantly airing the vedio and the related news item.

The studio of Nation Live in sector 65 Noida has also been sealed.

There had been protests at Press Club of India yesterday by four media organisations terming the UP police action as derogatory, uncalled for and authoritarian to muzzle free speech and media freedom.

Scribe Prashant Kanojia’s wife has complained how the UP police had arbitrarily arrested her husband from their Delhi house in a huff and arrogant manner as if he is a hardened criminal.

*Today it’s Prashant, tomorrow it can be you

The journalists in Delhi and those associated with Press Club of India are organising a Protest Meet against arbitrary arrest of Prashant Kanojia and other journalists by UP Police.

Editors Guild of India, Press Club of India, Women Press Corps, South Asian Women in the Media (SAWM, India), Press Association and Uttarakhand Journalists Forum has condemned the arbitrary arrest of Delhi-based freelance journalist Prashant Kanojia and Noida-based TV channel’s Ishita Singh and Anuj Shukla.

Kanojia was picked by UP Police personnel in plain clothes from his East Delhi residence on June 8.

The UP police in a suo-moto FIR has accused Kanojia of making “objectionable tweets” against UP CM Yogi Adityanath. Kanojia has been booked under IPC sections 500 (defamation), 505 and 67 of the IT Act.

This act of UP Police is highly condemnable and attack on freedom of the press.

The various journalists organisations had demanded immediate release of Prashant Kanojia and other journalists.

They also demaned that the UP government should withdraw the criminal defamation charges against all the three journalists.

The office bearers urged all journalists to join the march against these arbitrary arrests in huge numbers to express their solidarity with the media fraternity.

According to the wife of Mr. Kanojia, who was the sole witness to his arrest, he was whisked away without as much as giving her opportunity to talk to her husband. According to the FIR, a case of criminal defamation under section 500 of IPC has been registered against him, which is non-bailable and cognisable.

The action taken by the UP Police against these three journalists is a clear case of administrative overreach and excessive in proportion by way of application of law. The protesting journalists said as media-persons, it is our firm belief that journalists ought to conduct themselves responsibly, yet at the same time, we feel that criminal provisions of the defamation law should be taken off the statute books, given their repeated use against journalists and others.

The media organisations urge and demanded that the UP government should reconsider and withdraw the criminal defamation charges against all three journalists

South Delhi women assaulted in Metro. Incidents of women harassment, pick pocketing and mobile grabbing on the rise



Spread the love
Read Time: 3 minutes

Incidents of harrasment of women especially the young – office and college going girls usually take place in Delhi metro despite the fact that there are CCTVs, metro rail corporation’s police ( CRPF) and its vigilant staff.

In addition incidents of mobile snatchings and pick pocketting are also on the rise in metro trains but the authorities hardly come to the rescue of its passengers.

During the evening rush hours and at late night the women are the most vulnerable lot.

The increasing rush on various routes of Delhi metro give rise to such obnoxious incidents of women harassment and sexual assaults including incidents of pick pocketing and mobile/ cell phone snatchings as unwanted elements find the rush hour most suitable opportunity to conduct their illegal operations.

Even organised gangs of women pick pocketeers in groups are active inside metro train nicely dressed so that no passenger can doubt on their credentials. They allegedly operate both in Ladies as well as general coaches.

The pickpocketeers usually operate while passengers are emerging out and entering the train at main junctions like Rajiv Chowk, Guru Gram and Kashmiri gate stations etc where hundreds of communters are always in a hurry and rush.

On 8th June a South Delhi women was eve teased and harrased by a man between IFFCO Chock to Gurugram main city centre station caught on the CCTV camera and caught after the woman complained to the police.

The culprit had been caught earlier as well assaulting women passengers in the Metro.

The incident happened today and due to the woman’s boldness, the eve teaser could be apprehended.

The Gurugram police has arrested the man and charged him under the relevant sections of the law.

Number of incidents of women assaults, harrasment and eve teasing have been reported in Metro trains and its vicinity but no credible efforts have been intiated by the metro authorities. There is only one reporting centre at Kashmere gate and few others but hardly any defaulter or culprit is caught on complaints at these centres nor the lostor robbed material ever recovered.This is really absurd and uncalled for.

Though there have been separate women coaches for women passengers but sometime male passengers are seen sitting there or gazing women passengers.

The metro should increase the bogey/ coaches of women pasengers and they should be asked to avoid general coaches usually.

Today’s incident of woman assault in the metro train within IFFCO chowk to Gurugram city centre raises certain question marks on the metro authority’s credibility.

If these incidents of women harrasments, assaults, pickpocketing and mobile phone snatchings etc are not stopped forthwith and with a heavy hand the credibility of Metro Rail Corporation will be at stake in the near future.

The crux of the story is that Delhi metro is earning handsome profits through more than 35 lakh commuters who travel by metro daily. The metro fares too are quite exorbitant not within the reach of the commuters hailing from the lowest ebb of the society.

But in terms of providing safety and security to women passengers and getting rid of molesters, pick pocketers and mobile snatchers the metro authorities have proved incapable of showing fruitful results. Whats your take friends?

Weak pre monsoon rains led to unbeareable hot summers of June



Spread the love
Read Time: 4 minutes

The summer season is tremendously hot with unbearable heat waves with Delhi temperature nearing 45 degrees celcius and Churu in Rajasthan crossing 49 degrees celcius creating havoc to environment and human lives.

The increasing global warming due to excessive green house emissions especially in crowded cities and towns like the capital city of India Delhi where vehicles, automobiles, use of air conditioners and other electronic gadgets including multiple construction activities and depleting forest cover has further multiplied the crisis.

The loss of pre monsoon rains has also added to the woes of the countrymen with heat waves taking the human toll and making peoples’ lives hell.

The environment is full of unbeareable heat waves equalizing the furnace heat impact.

While the nation is confronted with unbeareable hot summer with not reprieve in sight, the meteorological department predicts the monsoon hitting the Kerala Coast on June 8th.

The reason of this uncontrollable hot temperature is mainly due to the tremendous shortage in the pre monsoon rainfall during the last 65 years which is a record in itself.

According to the editorial in one of the leading English daily HT, the three month pre monsoon season March April and May ended with a rainfall deficiency of 25%.

This has resulted in several parts of the country confronted with immense drought like situation while many suffering from excessive unbearable heat waves.

A robust pre monsoon could have made the summer beareable, made the reserviors full of capacity ( just 20% water was left in major reserviors of the country numbering 91 on June 2nd) replenished the soil moisture and helped the agrarian sector.

While shortage of pre monsoon rainfall has badly affected the agrarian sector of the country it has also negatively impacted the Himalayan states where forest fires have created havoc badly impacting and destroying the flora and fauna.

While in the entire country there have been major 192 incidents of forest fires resulting in deaths of animals living in jungles and to human lives as well this year, in the Himalayan state of Uttarakhand there had been hundreds of forest fire incidents leading to collosal loss of hundreds of crores of Rupees and its flora and fauna.

Just yesterday a leopard was found floating in dead condition, in one of the Garhwal rivers after having been killed in a massive forest fire. More than 20 peoole have been killed in Uttarakjand while dowsing fire in the jungles.

During summers, especially in May June the hot winds and dry leaves and pine needles become excessively prone to forest fires when temperature soar beyond limit.

Not only this but the jungle mafias, hand in glove with some corrupt forest officials deliberately create forest fires to encourage illegal sale of timber under the guise of heavy trees considered as half burnt and as waste material.

This shabby business is going on for years. In addition to this arbitrary practice various NGOs or forest department people who fudge the government money in lakhs n crores create pre strategic forest fires to falsely show their plantations as damaged due to these fires whereas in reality not a single plant or tree is planted in actuality.

Thus a massive government allocation in the name of forest tree plantation is siphoned off under the garb of forest fires in league with officials of the concerned department.

Conclusively it can be said that the excessively rising global temperature due to the green house gases’ emissions, depleting forests and global warning affecting the monsoon ultimately affects the agrarian sector, the food security, the future of children and countrymen and the progress of the nation by bringing down its GDP.

It’s therefore the collective responsibility of all global nations, its people and the governments to plant more and more trees, increase depleting forest cover, lessen green house gas emissions, save and conserve rain water, give up using vehicles cars with diesal, use solar energy than other form of fuels, lessen the use of air conditioners and use car pool system in your locality alternatively than using single cars with a single occupant.

If adhered to these principles the society can to a great extent minimise the negative impact and implications of global warming. What’s your take friends?
