The party will like to pick at least one woman chief minister at a time PM Modi has been highlighting women voters' support to the BJP and often speaking of the need for women-led development. NEW DELHI: The BJP on Friday appointed Defence Minister Rajnath Singh, Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar and Tribal Affairs Minister Arjun Munda as central observers for the election of its legislature party leaders in Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh respectively. The legislature party leaders will become chief ministers of the three states and the meetings to elect them may take place over the weekend. There is a view within the party that its leadership may usher in fresh faces at the helm of these states. Singh will be joined by the party's vice president Saroj Pandey and its general secretary Vinod Tawde as central observers for Rajasthan amid an intense buzz within the BJP that the leadership will bring in a new leader, ignoring the claim of two-time former chief minister Vasundhara Raje. The choice of Singh, one of the senior-most BJP leaders, is likely to help build a consensus around the leadership's chief ministerial choice among MLAs, several of whom are seen as supporting Raje. Khattar will be joined by the party's OBC Morcha head K Laxman and its secretary Asha Lakra for the Madhya Pradesh legislature party meeting, while Union Minister Sarbananda Sonowal and BJP general secretary Dushwant Kumar Gautam will be central observers for Chhattisgarh along with Munda. In Madhya Pradesh where the BJP scored its biggest victory among the three states with a two-thirds majority, current Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan's stake has gone up with the win but there is a view that the party leadership is looking at a leadership change after his 18-year uninterrupted stint in power except for 15 months after the 2018 assembly polls. The BJP is looking to hand over the reins to an OBC or tribal leader in Chhattisgarh, sources said, adding that ST leaders like Lata Usendi, Gomati Sai and Renuka Singh are natural contenders for the top job besides state party president Arun Sao and bureaucrat-turned-politician O P Choudhary, both from backward castes. The party will like to pick at least one woman chief minister at a time Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been highlighting women voters' support to the BJP and often speaking of the need for women-led development. Two of three observers for Chhattisgarh are from tribal communities while Gautam comes from the Scheduled Castes. The BJP has won the three states in the recently held assembly elections with thumping margins, brushing aside the challenge from the Congress in each of them.

So, he hired them and now his house is being moved from its present location to nearly 150 feet away from the roadside. The companys manager said that they are expert in moving the houses and will move this house also. It will take nearly two to three months to move. Jagmohan Singh is spending nearly 50 to 60 lakh rupees to move his house from one place to another.
BHPian debuda recently shared this with other enthusiasts. After using my beloved Ford Endeavour 2.2 AT Titanium (April 2018) for 5 years I decided to sell it in order to buy a new car. As my friends know, I like to buy a new car every 5 years but the Endeavour continued to give me so much joy and exhilaration every time I sat behind its steering wheel that it took me many months to take the final selling decision. I drove the Endeavour 63,500 km before I sold it. It was the best car I ever owned and it gave me 100% reliable service. Some highlights of my ownership experience are as follows : 1) During my 5 years / 63,500 km of ownership it never happened even once that the car stopped working and I was stranded on the road and had to call for assistance. So all the money I paid for Roadside Assistance was a sheer waste! 2) I sold the car with the original brake pads, brake discs, and battery! This is probably something of a record. 3) Every component of the Endeavour is so well-designed and robust that the failure rate is almost zero. I experienced only the following problems :a) The IRVM had to be replaced (under warranty) as the auto-dimming function failed.b) A very minor seepage (quite different from 'leakage' as not even one drop of oil fell on the ground) was observed at the transmission output shaft oil seal during the 40,000 km service. Though Ford Service said it was negligible and nothing to worry about, I insisted on a fix. Ford Service promptly obtained a new oil seal and replaced it under warranty. The Endeavour was used for 25,000 km after this and the oil seal remains bone dry.c) There were some issues with the inbuilt navigation system but they were resolved under warranty.d) Delamination and swelling of wheel lug nuts is a known problem in many Ford cars. These lug nuts have a steel core covered with a shiny 'cap' made of some other metal/alloy for cosmetic purposes. Due to an inherent design/manufacturing defect, the bonding between the inner core and outer cap is not very good and they tend to get delaminated. This is often caused by the use of pneumatic wrenches which apply vibratory torque, something akin to hammering. Once even the slightest delamination takes place, a small gap is created between the core and the cap. Subsequently, water/moisture enters the gap and corrosion starts. Corrosion is a chemical process and the presence of dissimilar metals which are far apart in the Electrochemical Series is the ideal situation for corrosion. The products of corrosion cause swelling of the outer 'cap' because it is relatively thin and soft. Once the cap swells up, the wheel wrench can't fit the lug nut. Furthermore, when delamination is complete, there is relative movement between the core and cap and even when a lug nut is tight it appears loose! I first experienced this lug nut swelling problem when my Endeavour was just a few months old. Ford Service initially refused to change the lug nuts under warranty claiming that 'nuts and bolts' were not covered. But I took up the matter with Ford India and got all 24 lug nuts replaced under warranty. Thereafter during every service, I insisted that wheel lug nuts should be loosened/tightened by hand and not by pneumatic wrench. This minimized further delamination but I did have to change a few lug nuts later.All in all, as you will see from above, the defects that arose were quite minor and the cost of repairs under warranty was negligible compared to the handsome amounts I paid for an extended warranty up to 6th year. I am sure that Endeavour will continue to provide reliable service to the new owner for many more years. Before I wind up this post, let me share my selling experience which was quite interesting. After I spread the word about my intention to sell Endeavour through social media and ads in OLX and Team-BHP, I received several inquiries. About 10 individuals, mostly used car dealers, test-drove and thoroughly inspected my car. All were impressed and found my lovingly maintained Endeavour in excellent condition. I also got my car evaluated by Cars24. But all offers fell short of my expectations (which was around 21L initially). I held on, as I was in no hurry to sell. After a few days some of the dealers (including Cars24) whose offers I had rejected started calling me again and raising their offers. A Kolkata-based dealer and a Chandigarh-based dealer offered 18L. Incidentally, the demand for pre-owned Endeavours is highest in Punjab, Haryana, and NCR as the hot-blooded youngsters there love to show off their Fortuners and Endeavours. I figured that the fair market value of my car is around 20L because the dealers would obviously sell the car to the final buyer after adding a good profit margin on top of transportation and RTO costs for registration in a different state. Then one day a gentleman from Jamshedpur called and said he saw my ad on Team-BHP and he was really keen to buy as he had read many of my posts on Team-BHP and was sure that my car would be excellent. I too preferred to deal with a gentleman who follows Team BHP and also happens to be from Jampot where my car is registered. The deal was finalised even without physically inspecting the car and I offered to drive the car to Jampot. Upon reaching Jampot on 24 Nov 23 after my last 300 km tango with my Endeavour, the buyer greeted my wife with a bouquet of flowers. He test-drove and inspected the car and was fully satisfied. He transferred the money and we went to RTO and completed the formalities of name transfer. Everything was completed in a couple of hours! Don't all car lovers wish for such deals with fellow car lovers instead of haggling with dealers? Well, I have been thrice lucky, and every time due to the Team-BHP connection. My previous car, an XUV-5oo, was bought by a business school professor from Ranchi who knew everything about my XUV because he had read every word penned by me on my ownership thread on Team-BHP. Incidentally, he messaged me recently saying he was now interested in buying my Endeavour, but the deal had already been finalized. Another previous car of mine, a Maruti Swift, was bought by a Tata Steel engineer, also through Team-BHP. Team-BHP is undoubtedly the topmost Indian forum for automobile enthusiasts. One has to undergo screening to become a member. This ensures high standards of posts and discussions. My association with Team BHP has been fulfilling on several levels. My beloved Endeavour will remain in my heart forever. Here are some random pics of the Endeavour clicked by me over the years : Check out BHPian comments for more insights and information.

SC rejects plea seeking direction to fix limit of expenses by political parties, candidates The Supreme Court on Friday dismissed a petition seeking a direction to fix the limit of expenses by political parties and candidates in elections, saying these are matters of legislative policy. ''Either these are legislative changes or policy matters. How can we entertain a petition like this,'' a bench headed by Chief Justice D Y Chandrachud observed. The bench was hearing a plea filed by a Haryana-based man seeking several directions, including to calculate and fix the limit of expenses by political parties and candidates, restrict the expenditure on articles printed and posted prior to nominations and calculate expenses of rallies performed during filing of nomination. ''These are all matters of legislative policy,'' said the bench, also comprising Justices J B Pardiwala and Manoj Misra. The plea had also sought a direction to all the high courts to decide election petitions within six months. ''These are not matters on which we can merely give directions. There is already a law...,'' the bench observed. The petitioner told the bench there was no limit on expenditure by political parties. ''That is a matter of legislative change,'' the CJI said, adding, ''We can't command Parliament that you shall enact a law on this subject''. The petitioner also referred to section 86 of the Representation of the People Act, 1951, which deals with trial of election petitions. ''Dismissed. These are all matters of policy,'' the bench said.
Laying different pitches, becoming a DIY coach and preparing his son for the cash-rich league: How Surender got Swastik ready for professional cricket. CHENNAI:Hailing from a family of athletes where his grandfather was a sprinter, his father was a shot putter, Surender Chhikara, who himself was a long-distance runner, always wanted his children to pursue sports. However, little did he know to achieve that he not only had to turn into a cricket coach but also develop 12 wickets on his field to make sure his son, Swastik, became a cricketer.As he fittingly said while talking to this daily, necessity is the mother of invention, Surender ended up with a cricket academy named SS Nalanda Cricket Hostel in Ghaziabad that now houses 13 kids trying to make their careers in cricket. As far as his son Swastik is concerned, he made his debut for Uttar Pradesh, slamming a century on his Vijaya Hazare debut last month. Before that, the 18-year-old hogged the limelight in the UP T20 League slamming three centuries and two half-centuries in August-September.The right-hand batter also appeared in trials for Mumbai Indians, Kolkata Knight Riders and Rajasthan Royals. Given his exploits in the UP T20 League, his father is optimistic about him finding a buyer during the mini-auction scheduled on December 19. It all started in 2008 when Surender, who did NIS diploma in coaching course, saw Swastik's inclination towards cricket. Before him, nobody in the family was a cricketer. Both of Surender's sisters Savita and Sheel were also 100m and 200m sprinters. While doing the NIS coaching course, I realised the climate in our country coupled with a few other factors meant it was difficult to produce world-class runners. So I wanted Swastik to choose his sport. He made my life easy as he never demanded any toy apart from a cricket bat, Surender, whose forefathers hail from a village in Jhajjar district (Haryana), told this daily. Nonetheless, life was not easy thereafter as finding a dedicated coach for Swastik turned out to be an uphill task. My wife Sudha used to take him to a cricket academy in Ghaziabad. It was around 16km from our home in Muradnagar. But the coach there was doing nothing except asking trainees to run and pick the balls. We tried at a few more academies but in vain. Then I decided to train Swastik. The first thing Surender did was to build a turf wicket with nets enclosing it from three directions on his 2.60-acre field. I requested former India spinner Maninder Singh to inaugurate it. To my amazement, the next day when I visited the field, the nets and poles were missing. It made me sleep there to keep away the trespassers. Gradually, Surender understood he could not keep up the work as basically, he was an athletics coach. Initially it was good but as Swastik started developing as a cricketer, I needed to introduce variations in my bowling. There was no other bowler there as we were training alone. I could not bowl inswing and outswing so I decided to develop a wicket tilted by 2 feet from one end to swing the ball. In the group photo, Swastik's father is extreme left Soon enough, he got to know that the wicket would be of no use during monsoon. Then I developed a cemented surface and had another one ready with shed on it to ensure my son continues to practice even when it rains. The father hit another roadblock when Swastik started longing for pace bowling. I can bowl but the pace was not there. To make up for it, I bought a bowling machine in 2015. In the meantime, I continued developing more wickets to suit to different demands of Swastik. Overall now the place has 12 practice wickets. Surender, a sub-inspector, is an instructor with the Delhi police. He imparts training to newly recruited cops on weapons, martial arts, bomb disposal and other skills. It was not easy to juggle between the two jobs. The Delhi Police Training Institute in Wazirabad is about 30km from his home. My job profile means I have to reach the institute by 4 am to impart training from 5 to 8 to the recruits. I have to go there again in the evening to hold the parade for one hour. This meant I used to travel at least 120km per day to make sure I was there at my coaching centre for Swastik, said Surender. The hard work started paying dividends as Swastik started scoring runs in bulk. He hit 585 runs in a local tournament tograbheadlines in 2019. He also started playing age-group cricket (U14, 16, 19, 23 and 25) for his state. He also featured for India B during the period but it was his prolific form in the UP T20 League that put the spotlight on him.This year, he performed exceptionally well in the state T20 league and also made his senior debut for the UP team in the 50-over tournament. He was in the squad for the Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 Trophy but didn't get a game. More than Swastik, his father Surender would be glued to the television when the mini-auction takes place in two weeks' time. And he is ready to accept whatever the outcome is. We can only hope. No matter what the result is, I know my son deserves to play in the IPL. If it doesn't happen this season, it will happen the next season, signed off Surender. Numbers game 117 off 101 balls Swastik made on his senior UP debut in Vijay Hazare Trophy against Himachal 494 runs he scored at an average of 70.57 and a strike rate of 173.33 from 9 innings in UP T20 League 3 centuries he scored in the league playing for Meerut Mavericks

Haryana govt to launch new 'company' for Millennium City metro corridor The state government has decided to form a new company, Gurugram Metro Rail Limited, to oversee the metro rail connectivity project from Millennium City Centre to Cyber City Gurugram, a top official said on Thursday. Haryana Chief Secretary Sanjeev Kaushal, who is also the Chairman of Haryana Mass Rapid Transport Corporation, or HMRTC, made the announcement presiding over the 54th meeting of the corporation here. ''This will provide a circular mobility corridor connecting Millennium City centre to Subhash Chowk to Railway station, Rezangla Chowk to Cyber city coming full circle,'' he said, according to an official statement. While all upcoming projects will be implemented by the new company, the existing Rapid metro project will be dealt with by HMRTC, he said. ''The metro connectivity project from Millennium City Centre to Cyber City, Gurugram, has now set the wheels in motion for a groundbreaking. Spanning 28.50 km with 27 stations, the estimated project cost stands at Rs 5452.72 crore. ''Processes for pre-construction activities, including geo-technical investigations and design consultations, have already been initiated,'' he said. Kaushal said that HMRTC has witnessed a steady surge in both ridership and income, reflecting its resilience and commitment to providing efficient urban transit solutions. Cumulative ridership in Rapid Metro Gurugram this year reached an impressive 80,13,765 passengers, marking a significant leap from the 59,12,457 recorded previous year, he said. Kaushal asked the officers of the transport department to study the last mile connectivity issues at every station. The Chief Secretary also insisted that the corporation must focus on enabling end-to-end transit of passengers to make the metro travel more comfortable. The government also said that its Mass Rapid Transit System project for Chandigarh Tricity (Chandigarh-Panchkula-Mohali) is gaining momentum.

UP STF arrests two members of inter-state liquor smuggling gang Two members of an inter-state liquor smuggling gang were arrested by the Uttar Pradesh Police Special Task Force (STF) from Fatehpur district with liquor worth Rs 41 lakh, officials said on Thursday. Mohammad Sahil and Mohammad Taslim were arrested on Wednesday when they were taking the liquor from Punjab's Ludhiana to Bihar, they said. Following a tip-off, a truck was intercepted by STF personnel in Fatehpur's Jahanabad area. During a search of the vehicle, liquor bottles, which were hidden under clothes, were recovered. The value of the liquor is estimated to be Rs 41 lakh, an official statement issued here said. During interrogation, the accused told the STF that they are part of a liquor smuggling gang run by Atul Mishra alias Guddu of Ambala. The gang operates in Punjab, Bihar and Haryana, it said. Further investigation into the matter is underway, according to the statement.
Live-in relationship 'dangerous disease', should be law against it: BJP MP in LS A BJP MP from Haryana on Thursday termed live-in relationships a ''dangerous disease'' that needs to be eradicated from society and urged the government to make a law against it. Raising the issue in the Lok Sabha during 'zero hour', Dharambir Singh also said divorce rates in love marriages were high and the consent of the parents of the bride and groom should therefore be made mandatory for such alliances. ''I want to bring to the notice of the government and Parliament a very serious issue. Indian culture is known for its philosophy of 'Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam (world is one family) and brotherhood. Our social fabric is different from others in the world. The whole world is impressed by our unity in diversity,'' the MP from Bhiwani-Mahendragarh said. Noting that India has a long tradition of arranged marriages, Singh said a large section of society even to this day gives priority to marriages arranged by parents or relatives. This has the consent of the bride and groom and arranged marriages are based on a match of several common factors such as social and individual values and likes as well as family backgrounds, he said. ''Marriage is considered a sacred relationship that continues for seven generations...Divorce rate is about 1.1 per cent in India as compared with America which has a rate of about 40 per cent. It has been observed that the rate of divorce in arranged marriages is very less. However, there is a lot of increase in divorce rate recently and the main reason for it is love marriages,'' Singh said. ''Therefore, it is my suggestion that the consent of mother and father of the bride and groom be made mandatory in love marriages because in large parts of the country marriage does not happen in the same 'gotra' and due to love marriages there are a lot of conflicts in the villages. Scores of families are destroyed in these conflicts, therefore the consent of both the families is important,'' he said. Singh said a ''new disease'' has emerged and this social evil is called ''live-in relationship''. Under this, two persons, man or woman, live together without marriage, the BJP MP said. ''Such relationships are very common in western nations but this evil is fast spreading in our society also and the consequences are horrible. Recently, the case of Shraddha (Walkar) and Aftab (Poonawala) had come to light in which both were in a live-in relationship,'' Singh said. Such cases keep coming to the fore almost daily, he added while referring to the gruesome case in Delhi of a man allegedly killing his live-in partner and chopping her body to pieces. ''Not only this is ruining our culture but also hatred and evils are spreading in the society. If this continues our culture will die and there will be no difference between us and others,'' he said. ''I request the minister that a law be made against live-in relationships so that this dangerous disease can be eradicated from society,'' Singh said.

On Tuesday, three men opened fire on Sukhdev Gogamedi, the national president of Srikarni Sena and fled. Gogamedi was taken to a hospital, where doctors declared him brought dead. JAIPUR/CHANDIGARH: Rajasthan came to a standstill on Wednesday as protests erupted in many districts across the state following a bandh call against the murder of Sukhdev Gogamedi, the national president of Srikarni Sena on Tuesday. Highways were blocked, trains halted in Bhilwara, and markets remained shuttered in Kota city, where Karni Sena supporters gathered at the Collectorate. The police were deployed in large numbers to ensure law and order. The state police identified the shooters as Rohit Rathore and Nitin Fauji. Their photos were circulated as the search intensified for international connections. Nitin Fauji is an Army soldier from Haryana and allegedly had links to gangster Sampat Nehra of the Lawrence Bishnoi gang, raising suspicions of a conspiracy in the murder. Nitin Fauji, identified as a resident of Daungada Jat in Mahendragarh, Haryana, had joined the Army about four years ago. #WATCH | Rajasthan | The body of Sukhdev Singh Gogamedi, national president of Rashtriya Rajput Karni Sena, was brought to Shri Bhawani Niketan School and College in Jaipur for people to pay their last respects. pic.twitter.com/ypaM21Anz2 ANI MP/CG/Rajasthan (@ANI_MP_CG_RJ) December 7, 2023 The Rajasthan Police conducted raids in Haryana and expanded the search to UP, Punjab, and Madhya Pradesh. Governor Kalraj Mishra called a meeting of top officials and emphasized continuous vigilance. Chief Secretary Usha Sharma said the situation was being monitored at the district collector level.

In this screenshot taken from a CCTV footage, Shri Rashtriya Rajput Karni Sena's president Sukhdev Singh Gogamedi being shot dead in the living room of his house, in Jaipur, on Dec. 5, 2023. (PTI) On Tuesday, three men opened fire on Gogamedi and fled. Gogamedi was taken to a hospital, where doctors declared him brought dead. Guard Ajit Singh, who was present during the incident with Gogamedi, was seriously injured. Naveen Shekhawat, an aide of Gogamedi, also died in the firing. Gangster Rohit Godara shared the post on social media taking responsibility for the murder. Gogamedi, who had received threats for the past three years, failed to get police security after he applied for it in April this year. The victim had deposited his licensed weapons due to the election code of conduct but upped his security. The police team that raided a few places in Haryana revealed that input about the murder had been received 10 months ago from Punjab Police, indicating Sampat Nehras involvement. The Punjab Police has formed multiple teams to find the shooters and has announced a reward of Rs 5 lakh for each for any information leading to their arrest. Punjab Police sources said that in February this year, the Punjab DGP had shot off a letter to the Rajasthan Police highlighting a plot to kill the Karni Sena chief. The Punjab DGP suspected the role of the Lawrence Bishnoi gang. According to an input, notorious gangster Sampat Nehra of the Bishnoi gang, who is currently lodged in Bathinda Central Jail, has plans to kill Sukhdev Singh Gogamedi to incite religiously motivated riots in Rajasthan, read the secret information shared by the Punjab Police to their Rajasthan counterpart. The input suggested that Nehra was likely to arrange an AK-47 to accomplish the task through his associates outside the jail. It is learnt that the Anti-Terrorist Squad (ATS) DIG Anshuman Bhomiya of Rajasthan Police had then flagged the threat to the Additional Director General of Police (Security) of Rajasthan, asking him to take further action. The Punjab Police has launched a special operation by strengthening check posts at all interstate borders.

As per the NCRB's annual report, among the 28 states, the highest rate of accidental deaths was reported from Chhattisgarh (56.4) followed by Haryana (53.5) and Maharashtra (53.0) against the national average of 31.2. However, two Union Territories -- Ladakh and Puducherry -- reported rate of accidental deaths at 78.7 and 65.7, respectively, and were ahead of Chhattisgarh. There are eight UTs in the country. Nineteen out of 36 states/UTs have reported higher rates of 'accidental deaths' as compared to all- India average of 31.2 deaths per one lakh of population, said the report. Accidental deaths have been grouped into two broad categories -- 'Deaths due to Forces of Nature', including lightning, heat/sun stroke, floor, landslide etc, and 'Deaths due to Other Causes', including traffic accidents, killed by animals, consumption of spurious liquor and factory mishaps, among others. Chhattisgarh reported 16,893 accidental deaths in 2022, including 248 due to 'forces of nature' and 16,645 due to 'other causes', according to the data published by NCRB, which functions under the Union home ministry. In 2021, the state had recorded 19,265 accidental deaths, including 244 due to 'forces of nature' and 19,012 due to 'other causes', which declined by 12.3 per cent in 2022. Among the total 4,15,306 accidental deaths due to 'other causes' in the country in 2022, as many as 507 incidents of consumption of illicit/spurious liquor caused 617 deaths, it said. States where various such deaths were reported included Bihar (134 deaths) followed by Karnataka (98), Punjab (90), Chhattisgarh (60), Jharkhand (55) and Uttar Pradesh (50 deaths), said the report. Similarly, rate of suicides in Chhattisgarh was 28.2, the third highest after Sikkim (43.1) and Kerala (28.5), among 28 states in 2022. All-India rate of suicides (ie the number of suicides per one lakh population) was 12.4 last year, the report said. Andaman & Nicobar Islands (42.8) and Puducherry (29.7) are among UTs which are ahead of Chhattisgarh in rate of suicides. Chhattisgarh reported 8,446 suicides in 2022 which was 7.9 per cent more than the number recorded in 2021 at 7,828.
On Tuesday, two men had opened fire on Gogamedi in broad daylight and fled. Gogamedi was taken to Metro Mass Hospital, where doctors declared him brought dead. JAIPUR: Rajasthan came to a standstill on Wednesday as a mark of protest against the murder of Sukhdev Gogamedi , the national president of the Shri Rashtriya Rajput Karni Sena. Demanding swift and stringent action against the assailants, demonstrations erupted at various locations across the state, including Jaipur. Highways were blocked, trains halted in Bhilwara and markets remained shuttered in Kota city, where Karni Sena supporters actively participated in protests, even gathering at the collectorate. Police maintained a high alert, appointing executive magistrates to ensure law and order. Amidst the tension following Gogamedi's murder, the impact of the Rajasthan bandh was evident in all districts, with schools and markets remaining closed. Bharatpur, Bundi, and Sirohi also witnessed widespread demonstrations at the district headquarters, collectorate and main intersections. Governor Kalraj Mishra convened a meeting with top officials to express concern over the murder and issue directives for necessary action. Emphasizing continuous vigilance, the Governor urged the police and administration to remain alert, warning against any negligence. He stressed the need for robust arrangements to maintain peace and security, closely monitoring organized crimes and ensuring prompt action against any criminal incidents. During the meeting, Chief Secretary Usha Sharma reported that the situation was under constant monitoring at the district collector level, with three companies deployed at the central government level. Post-mortem and FIR registration had been carried out, and efforts were underway to apprehend the culprits, as stated by Director General of Police Umesh Mishra and Home Secretary Anand Kumar. Police named Rohit Rathore and Nitin Fauji as the shooters who escaped after carrying out the murder. Photos of both assailants were circulated as the search intensified. Fauji, an army soldier from Haryana, had links with gangster Sampat Nehra of the Lawrence Bishnoi gang, raising suspicions of a conspiracy in the murder. Fauji, identified as a resident of Daungada Jat in Mahendragarh, Haryana, had joined the army four to five years ago. Rajasthan Police conducted raids in Haryana and expanded the search to Uttar Pradesh, Punjab and Madhya Pradesh. Gogamedi, who had received threats for the past three years, sought police security in April but did not receive it. After depositing licensed weapons due to the code of conduct, he increased his personal security. The police team, which raided Haryana, revealed that inputs about the murder had been received 10 months ago from the Punjab police, indicating Sampat Nehra's involvement. The links with Rohit Godara, the gangster taking responsibility for Gogamedi's murder, and Sampat Nehra, who had a criminal history with Godara in Rajasthan, raised suspicions of a coordinated plot. DGP Umesh Mishra appealed for peace and assured that the Rajasthan Police would apprehend the culprits, urging citizens not to succumb to rumours. Police are conducting extensive interrogations in Bikaner and Jaipur jails, seeking information from habitual criminals with photographs of the suspects and reaching out to police in neighbouring states. Despite ongoing efforts, no significant leads have emerged as yet. On Tuesday, two men had opened fire on Gogamedi in broad daylight and fled. Gogamedi was taken to Metro Mass Hospital, where doctors declared him brought dead. His guard Ajit Singh, who was present during the incident, was seriously injured. Naveen Shekhawat, the young man who took the two men to Gogamedi's house, also died in the firing.

Dell Technologies' India Digital Inclusion Program Outreach Expanded After Equipping 2 Million Citizens with Digital Skills Bangalore, Karnataka, India Business Wire India Story highlights: Launched in 2022 in partnership with Common Services Centres Scheme, the program has reached 2 million beneficiaries, empowering underrepresented communities in areas with poor-socio economic indicators. In 2023-24, the program aims to impact an additional 1.2 million people, including 200 retired defence personnel and their wards with digital inclusion opportunities. Full Story - Dell Technologies announced that it has met its target of positively impacting 2 million beneficiaries through the Mobile Solar Community Hubs launched last year in India. These mobile hubs are technology-enabled and equipped with requisite devices, including laptops, television screens for broadcasting messages, solar panels to power devices, 4G internet hotspot facility and self-paced learning content, to help the community access online services. The goal of these mobile hubs is to travel from town to town providing internet and computer technology to local community members. Dell has a global goal of impacting one billion lives by 2030 and is committed to achieving it in a combination of going deep in communities of need, scaling through partnerships, and providing digital inclusion resources and programs. In partnership with the Common Service Centres Scheme (CSC)[i], Dell and Learning Links Foundation have successfully deployed solar-powered hubs in six aspirational districts as identified by the government. Key beneficiaries include students, youth, and women who are supported with trainings in digital and financial literacy, technical skills, entrepreneurship and career guidance & revenue-generating services guidance towards future job creation and achieving financial sustainability. Dell is now extending the reach of the Mobile Solar Community Hubs to five additional districts; Pauri Garhwal (Uttarakhand) Ramgarh (Jharkhand) Jhansi (Uttar Pradesh) Pathankot (Punjab) Gurugram (Haryana) Additionally, the program aims to upskill and digitally empower 200 ex-servicemen/retiring junior-ranked personnel (Jawans) of the Indian Armed Forces. Support is extended to address any lack of opportunities for skill acquisition and learning during their military tenure that may have resulted in a gap in their post-retirement prospects. The hubs will also assist wards of military personnel or 4000 students at defence schools, by introducing them to digital skills such as coding and block-programming. The digital challenges could be the result of lacking one or more fundamental elements needed for digital inclusion; access to technology, skill building opportunities to learn and grow, and the support they need to get started. Partnering with the government over the years in various activities has helped drive transformational change and address the digital divide, said Alok Ohrie, president and managing director, Dell Technologies India. Archana Sahay, regional giving manager, Asia Pacific & Japan at Dell Technologies, said, Our collaboration is driven by the goal to support underrepresented communities to achieve digital equity, where they find themselves equipped with technology capacity needed for full participation in the society and economy. From students to women and now ex-servicemen, the opportunity to help them gain the skills to participate in Indias evolving digital society is a rewarding contribution. Nuriya Ansari of Learning Links Foundation said, The expansion plan will be critical in transforming the lives of rural underrepresented communities, and ex-servicemen and retiring junior-ranked personnel from the Indian Armed Forces. These dedicated individuals face difficulties transitioning to civilian life due to a lack of opportunities for skill acquisition and learning during their military service. We value their dedication and discipline gained through military service and aim to provide them with a diverse range of career opportunities and choices. Learning Links Foundation will continue to provide on-the-ground support for the vans, which will equip the beneficiaries with digital and financial literacy, impart knowledge about cyber safety, and harness technological skills.

My expectations from Congress is that they should be realistic and truthful to what they have promised and envisioned for the future, Dr Manjula Anagani, Padma Shri Awardee, Gynaecologist. HYDERABAD: Telangana has witnessed a significant change after the recent election. The victory of Congress over two-time winner Bharat Rashtra Samiti (BRS) allows people the freedom of hope. ] Keeping this in mind, CE got in touch with a few prominent personalities from the city who shared their opinions about the winds of change and their expectations from the new government: Brahmaji, Actor BRS government has taken good care of Hyderabad city. I think taking care of the villages, districts and farmers should also be concentrated upon. I wish the new government good luck and wish them the best. Dr Manjula Anagani, Padma Shri Awardee, Gynaecologist My expectations from Congress is that they should be realistic and truthful to what they have promised and envisioned for the future. I have always believed that anything that comes free is never appreciated in the long run. Let it be one rupee, it can be the lowest amount of fee charged from the beneficiaries but nothing should be given for free. However, free health and education are acceptable in this context. I expect Congress to learn from the lesson from their previous leadership why did they lose? Is it because of their attitude or corruption? Always analyse and see that Telangana as a state is progressive and is something that people should look back on and say that we are proud of being Hyderabadi or from Telangana. They must be able to thank for the efforts made by the party that forms the government and brings change. Even now when we talk about economic reforms, we talk about P V Narasimha Rao and likewise, people should talk about Telangana in the future. We hope that Revanth Reddy will live up to the expectations of the people and see that Congress gives what they promised. Besides these talented personalities, we also had the fathers of two eminent sportspersons who shared their opinions on the formation of a new government. Sanjay Thumma, Master Chef I am so happy that a new government will be formed after these elections. Revanth Reddy is a dynamic leader and I hope his dynamism is towards the positive growth of Telangana. Hopefully, he will not be bossed down by other contenders in the party because I see it as a bit indisciplined when it comes to the elections. I hope we have a chief minister who will be there for the next five years and brings impactful change in society. In my opinion, the Congress follows a trend of putting national-level leaders like Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi in the spotlight. I hope that our leader will prove to be more than a mere puppet of these big leaders. Mohammad Jameel Ahmed, Father of Nikhat Zareen, Boxing Champion In 2011, when Nikhat started her career, Congress was in power. In 2014, the TRS (now BRS) government took over. In 2011, there was a policy which included young talented sportspersons who would get `2 lakh financial support every year. This continued till 2013. This policy should be implemented again. Even KCR sir had given 50 lakhs for us to shift here in Hyderabad and get the training for Nikhat. A few other promises given by KCR were delayed but I wish that this kind of thing would not happen again. I request Revanth Reddy to look into this matter and speed up the process. About the policies, I request Revanth Reddy to take a look at Haryanas sports policy which is either giving cash or jobs to sportspersons. Please follow this policy and implement it here so that our state becomes number one. Priyadarshi Pulikonda, Actor Expressing gratitude to BRS and extending a warm welcome to the Congress, I appreciate the collective voice of the people reflected in their votes, Like any other citizen, I earnestly hope that our political parties diligently strive to fulfil the commitments outlined in their manifestos. It is crucial for them to work towards maintaining peace, fostering harmony and nurturing the brotherhood within our society. Let us collectively advocate for good governance, ensuring a prosperous and inclusive future for all. P V Ramana,Father of Badminton Champion, P V Sindhu Take the result sportively. Everyone will try and perform their best for the state as a captain. We wish all the best to the incoming and hard luck to the outgoing. Like sports, we meet and congratulate each other after the completion of the match. It is all part and parcel of life. Best wishes to the winners and hope we will get some good facilities. As leaders, they know very well what to do for the state. Manchu Lakshmi,Actress I am always interested to see what peoples opinions are expressed in their final verdict. Change is always good, we need proper opposition for good governance. I know Revanth Reddy garu is a powerful, committed leader. I am just looking forward to seeing all that he is going to do.

BHPian anjan_c2007 recently shared this with other enthusiasts. Since more than a decade ago, CV's and PV's were sold and serviced under a common roof in the same dealerships by nearly all auto manufacturing units in India. Lately, a very few OE's who are both passenger car (PV) and commercial vehicle (CV) makers like Tata Motors have separated their dealerships for these two categories of vehicles. As the clientele and their specific needs for both these categories of vehicles are different it is always preferable to have separate showrooms, which Tata Motors (earlier TELCO) has realised of late. Till their Tata Estate, Sierra, Safari, Sumo, Indica and Indigo years they might have sensed the perils of having two in one, common dealerships, but they have lately separated these. In many cases it is the same dealer who has established his CV showroom in the city's outskirts, leaving the old showroom in the city's prime area for PV's. And there is a rider here. Tata Motors has though kept common dealerships in smaller towns (Tier II,III) where the sales volume is not high which is practical, as one cannot expect a dealer who sells 10-20 cars and trucks a month to have a separate showroom for PV's and CV's. Contrarily, Force Motors and Mahindra are still selling PV's and CV's under the same roof. But their tractors are sold and serviced in separate showrooms. As far as Force Motors is concerned, they sell very few PV's though. There could again be some unavoidable tractor, PV and CV sales and service of Mahindra and Force Motors under one roof, though in smaller Tier II and III towns, where sales volumes are too low to justify separate showrooms. The photos illustrate contentions stated in the above paras. Old Tata Sierra Turbo advt listing Tata dealers in Punjab- most of these also sold and serviced CV's (image source: automotiveinida.com) Sree Gokulam Motors TATA Cars Showroom Thodupuzha Car Dealer in ThodupuzhaThodupuzha Kerala 685584.j A new Tata Motors PV dealership in Thodupuzha, Kerala - source Sree Gokulam Motors Force Motors Tractor showroom- source Adarsha Entterprises, Ranebennur taluq Haveri, Karnataka Above two image Force Motors showroom- source Keshav Force Motors, Karnal, Haryana Force Motors dealership source- MM Automobiles, Rewari Haryana Mahindra Tractors, Palakkad dealership- source dealer https://smotors.in/ Mahindra Tractors Shahdol M.P. website Mahindra dealer- all PV's and CV's under one roof - source Unnati Motors, Nagpur https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/...ow/9132447.cms An old newslink above about Tata Motors to sell PV's and CVs at same dealerships in smaller locations (June 2011 TOI) In the poll, members are requested to vote for their preference, whether they prefer a common showroom for both PV's and CV's sales and services or whether these should be separate. Also, comments and anecdotes about such dealerships of Tata, Mahindra, Force and also other automakers are most welcome. Here's what GTO had to say on the matter:Has to be different, indisputably, especially in markets of good size. I can understand a common showroom in smaller cities & towns where one cannot justify the cost of separate channels, but in larger markets, they have to be separate. It's not just the customer expectations + profile + difference in sales requirements, but even the products are entirely different! As an example, a Tata Ace will spoil the personality of the 2023 Safari Facelift parked next to it, as will a Bolero Pickup next to a 33-lakh rupee XUV700. The same salesperson cannot sell a Grand Vitara to a family, and also a fleet of 40 Eecos to a logistics company manager. Requires an entirely different skillset. Plus, the former will expect a certain ambience & finesse, while the latter will only care about the price & quick delivery.Here's what BHPian Newtown had to say on the matter:The cross-sell opportunities across both these segments is limited. Hence in Tier 1 cities, it is necessary to have the sales and service for both segments at different locations. However, once there is more traction gained around software derived vehicles which will include both categories of vehicles, that will be a game changer. That is when I foresee both PV's & CVs being sold & serviced (or let me say updated) under the same roof.Here's what BHPian furyrider had to say on the matter:Personally, i don't care as long as the vehicle ticks my boxes, but when I tag along my family with me, I expect the showrooms for PV and CV to be different. I had to drop the idea of purchasing a Marazzo just for this reason. I posted the details a long time ago in the Marazzo official thread. The gist is that I visited a Mahindra showroom with my family to check out the Marazzo. When we mentioned that we came looking for a Marazzo, the showroom staff pointed at a lone M2 on display in the commercial vehicle part of the showroom while the PV section has all other cars from their stable. No one attended us and we were left to roam around the CV section all to ourselves. The experience was sub par and when asked for a quote, they asked if we were looking for a yellow plate. We then visited a Kia showroom and the experience was exact opposite. So much so that we ended up with a Carens instead of Marazzo.Here's what BHPian Hayek had to say on the matter:In someways, CV sales are a more sophisticated and technical sales process, while PV sales require much better soft skills and an appeal to emotion. If you are selling a Safari, you need someone with an iPad and a jazzy video presentation. If you are selling an Ace or 407, you need someone with an excel sheet which assesses total cost of ownership based on the use case of the specific customer . There are very few people who can combine both these hard and soft skills - especially in a multi lingual environment like urban India. Hence the need for dedicated sales people and separate showrooms. There is no need for either a PV or a CV buyer to be offended by this.Here's what BHPian V.Narayan had to say on the matter:Hmmmm interesting question. As one of the members who actually sold trucks allow me to chime in. I am a bit outdated having sold Tata trucks 4 decades ago. Trucks and smaller CVs like the 407 and Tata Telcoline pick-ups were not sold in the showroom but in the field. We used to take the new product door to door to truckers and other buyers and demonstrate the vehicle to them, let them kick the tyres, get behind the wheel, under the truck (literally), dig in under the bonnet and pass a hundred expert user comments and so on. We would hold demo melas at the ransport nagar of the town all day long with ample supply of samosas. That is where the decision to buy got influenced. The deal might actually be closed anywhere. The dealers showroom actually was really for warranty service and major repairs and to lay out a few spanking polished vehicles whenever the Tata GM sales was visiting! Times may change but people do not. A car is bought from the heart and with a budget in mind. A truck or a CV of some kind is purchased with the head and a business model and cashflows in mind. For a large trucker the respect you give to him in front of others counts for a l-o-t in determining volumes you'll get. You got to know his family, visit his home make sure the General Manager visits his office/godown and so on. Conclusion - keep them separate. The kind of sales person you need are rather different. One has to sell once or twice. The other has to build a relationship to sell several times to the same customer or deal with orders for multiple vehicles at a time.Read BHPian comments for more insights and information.
Meanwhile, Tamil Nadu beat Nagaland by ten wickets after dismissing them for 69. Varun C took five wickets for just nine runs. AHMEDABAD: An out of sorts Delhi, plagued by some questionable team selections, were knocked out of the Vijay Hazare Trophy, losing by 51 runs to Uttarakhand in their final group league stage game here on Tuesday. With four defeats from seven games, Delhi with 12 points, finished fifth in Group C. Haryana, with 28 points and an all-win record, finished with highest points among all participating states. The six teams to directly qualify for the quarterfinals are Haryana (28 points), Rajasthan (24), Karnataka (24), Vidarbha (20), Mumbai (20) and Tamil Nadu (20). The four teams to qualify for the pre-quarterfinals are Bengal (20), Gujarat (20), Kerala (20) and Maharashtra (20). Despite bowling out Uttarakhand for 221 in 45.5 overs with pacer Navdeep Saini (3/23) and left-arm spinner Harsh Tyagi (3/30) doing the bulk of the damage, it was yet another shoddy batting show by young Delhi batters as they were bowled out for 170 in 46.2 overs. The selection committee as well as the team management will have some answering to do as to how Kshitiz Sharma, who has an average of less than 30 (29.86) in 22 List A games with just three fifty-plus scores, has been given the opportunity to open. Kshitiz didnt have the skills to tackle Mumbai Indians last seasons find Akash Madhwal, who exposed the batters lack of skill. So bare is the cupboard that a dogged slow-coach red-ball player like Jonty Sidhu (23 off 56 balls) has been entrusted with the duty of opening the batting. Save for Ayush Badoni (87 off 97 balls) and Himmat Singh, who failed on Tuesday but otherwise has been impressive, none of the Delhi batters have covered themselves in glory. Meanwhile, Tamil Nadu beat Nagaland by ten wickets after dismissing them for 69. Varun C took five wickets for just nine runs. Karnataka overpowered Mizoram as V Koushik took 4/7, restricting the opponents to 124. Kerala, on the other hand, fell short by 18 runs against Railways despite skipper Sanju Samson scoring 128 runs. Select results: Uttarakhand 221 in 45.5 ovs (Avneesh 85, Tare 58, Saini 3/23, Tyagi 3/30) bt Delhi 170 in 46.2 overs (Badoni 87, Madhwal 2/37); Odisha 199/9 in 50 ovs (Biswal 64, Avasthi 3/30) bt Mumbai 113 in 32.2 overs (Royston 24, Debabrata 2/20, Rajesh 2/21); Nagaland 69 in 19.4 ovs (Varun 5/9) lost to Tamil Nadu 73/0 in 7.5 ovs; Mizoram 124 in 37.2 ovs (Koushik 4/7) lost to Karnataka 126/4 in 17.1 ovs (Mayank 48 n.o); Meghalaya 158 in 41.1 ovs lost to Hyderabad 161/1 in 18.4 ovs (Tanmay 49); Railways 255/5 in 50 ovs (Sahab Yuvraj Singh 121) bt Kerala 237/8 in 50 ovs (Samson 128).

On an average, 87 women were sexually assaulted every day in India, according to NCRB data NEW DELHI: Despite stringent laws in place to deter criminals from committing crime against women, India in 2022 yet again saw a rise in such figures. According to data released by the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) on Sunday, as many as 31,982 women were allegedly raped in the country last year. The figure included 30,965 women above 18 years and 1,017 minor girls. This means that on an average, 87 women were sexually assaulted everyday in India. Among the states, Rajasthan recorded the maximum number of cases at 5,408, followed by Uttar Pradesh (3,692), Madhya Pradesh (3,046), Maharashtra (2,911), Haryana (1,787), (Assam 1,478), Odisha (1,464), Jharkhand (1,298), Chhattisgarh (1,246), West Bengal (1,112). Delhi recorded the maximum cases of sexual assault among the Union Territories, at 1,212. As per the data shared by National Crime Records Bureau, the country saw a total rise of 4 per cent in crime against women in 2022 compared to the figures of previous year. A total of 4.45 lakh cases of crime against women were registered during 2022. In 2021, the figure stood at 4.28 lakh. The majority of cases under crime against women under Indian Penal Code were registered under Cruelty by husband or his relatives (31.4%) followed by kidnapping & abduction of women (19.2%),Assault on women with intent to outrage her modesty (18.7%), and rape (7.1%). The crime rate registered per lakh women population was 66.4 in 2022 in comparison with 64.5 in 2021. NCRB says that the primary presumption is that the upward swing in police data indicates an increase in crime and thus a reflection of the ineffectiveness of the police is fallacious. Rise in crime and increase in registration of crime by police are clearly two different things. Increase in crime numbers in a state police data may in fact be on account of certain citizen centric police initiatives, like launching of e-FIR facility or women Helpdesks, etc, it said. Country records 6,516 dowry deaths Apart from sexual assault cases, the country registered 6,516 dowry deaths, 250 murders of women with rape or gangrape, 140 acid attacks, 1.4 lakh cases of cruelty by husband or in-laws, 781 cases of human trafficking and 85,300 women assaulted with intent to outrage their modesty.

The BJP is making significant strides toward securing dominance in governance, poised to lead independently in 12 states while the Congress, the nation's second-largest party, faces a decline, set to retain power in only three states. With recent poll wins in three out of four states, the BJP's tally of autonomous state leadership is set to expand. Presently holding the central administration, the BJP commands authority in Uttarakhand, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, Gujarat, Goa, Assam, Tripura, Manipur, Arunachal Pradesh, and is poised to reclaim Madhya Pradesh while gaining Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh from the Congress, based on the ongoing vote count. Furthermore, the BJP is a constituent of the ruling alliance in Maharashtra, Meghalaya, Nagaland, and Sikkim. On the other hand, the Congress will independently govern only three states - Karnataka, Himachal Pradesh, and Telangana, with a potential win in the latter, triumphing over its primary competitor, the ruling Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS). Additionally, the Congress is part of the ruling coalition in Bihar and Jharkhand and is aligned with the DMK, the ruling party in Tamil Nadu, though it isn't formally part of the state government. The election results solidified the Aam Aadmi Party's (AAP) status as a prominent opposition force, positioning it as the second-largest opposition party. AAP now holds governments in two states, overtaking the Congress, which witnessed a decline in its political presence. Jasmine Shah, a leader from AAP, remarked following the results, Today's outcomes establish the Aam Aadmi Party as the primary opposition force in North India, with governing bodies in Punjab and Delhi, as mentioned in a post on X.

As many as 32.75 lakh beneficiaries have been included under MBPY and 21 lakh under NSAP. BHUBANESWAR: Odisha is among the bottom-10 states in terms of extending pension and financial assistance to elderly, persons with disabilities (PwDs), widows, and transgenders under the National Social Assistance Programme (NSAP). The states share is a meagre Rs 200 to Rs 400 based on factors like age and category. As per data available with the Ministry of Rural Development, while the elderly and PwDs in neighbouring states like Andhra Pradesh are being given Rs 2,750 and Rs 3,000 a month respectively, they get Rs 500 to Rs 700 in Odisha. Not only Andhra Pradesh, the amount of pension provided by Tamil Nadu, Telangana, West Bengal, Arunachal Pradesh, Gujarat, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Jharkhand, Karnataka, Kerala, Maharashtra, Punjab, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh is two to four times more than that of Odisha. At present, NSAP comprises four schemes including Indira Gandhi National Old Age Pension Scheme (IGNOAPS), Indira Gandhi National Widow Pension Scheme (IGNWPS), Indira Gandhi National Disability Pension Scheme (IGNDPS) and National Family Benefit Scheme NFBS). While the Centre pays Rs 200 and Rs 500 per person, aged 60-79 years and 80 years or above respectively under IGNOAPS, states add the rest as top-up. For beneficiaries under IGNWPS and IGNDPS, the Centre pays Rs 300 each. Although Odisha has introduced its own pension scheme-Madhu Babu Pension Yojana (MBPY) for those who are left out of NSAP, the amount offered under it is also a meagre Rs 500 for beneficiaries below 80 years and Rs 700 for those aged above 80. As many as 32.75 lakh beneficiaries have been included under MBPY and 21 lakh under NSAP. Convener of Right to Food campaign, Odisha Sameet Panda said pension should be linked to inflation and the amount must be revised without any further delay.

Noida: The Uttar Pradesh Police has initiated an investigation following an incident where a Noida resident fell victim to a new cyber fraud trend, resulting in a loss of over 11 lakh, and subjected to a digital arrest for a day, officials stated on Saturday. This marks the first case of digital arrest fraud reported at the Cyber Crime police station in Noida. The perpetrators posed as police officials, invoking the names of an IPS officer in the CBI and the founder of a defunct airline, falsely implicating the 50-year-old victim in an imaginary money-laundering case. A similar incident was recently reported in Haryana's Faridabad, where cybercriminals, impersonating police personnel, subjected a woman to a digital arrest for over a week. They convinced her that her personal IDs were used for illicit activities, instructing her to stay online via Skype and not disclose this information to anyone while monitoring her throughout the period. In her complaint, the Noida resident stated that she received an IVR (interactive voice response) call on November 13, informing her that a mobile phone SIM card was purchased in Mumbai using her Aadhaar card for illegal advertising and harassment of women. The call was then transferred to an individual (claiming to be a Mumbai Police officer) who conducted the initial interrogation over the call and later on Skype VC. He informed me of another allegation of money laundering related to (the founder of an airline), for which an FIR has been filed against me, and an arrest warrant issued by the Supreme Court, the woman explained. After the interrogation, he stated that I am innocent and not guilty. He transferred the investigation to an IPS officer with the CBI, Mumbai, for further inquiry. He provided the Skype ID and instructed me to request the CBI officer for a priority investigation on VC to lift my arrest warrant, she added. The CBI officer claimed that during the investigation of the airline founder, 246 debit cards were found, one of which had the victim's name and was used to open a bank account with her Aadhaar card. He mentioned that my account was used for a fund transfer of 2 crore, of which I received 20 lakh. However, he indicated that I am not implicated in the case. To complete the investigation, he instructed me to transfer funds from all my accounts to my ICICI account and subsequently transfer the funds from the ICICI account to the PFC account as per the Supreme Court's directives..., she said. The woman alleged that she was warned not to disclose this information due to national security and potential consequences. To prove my innocence, he asked me to maintain sufficient balance in my accounts. He also advised me to apply for a personal instant loan of 20 lakh from ICICI, providing details on how to apply. Despite my refusal, he pressured me to arrange 3 lakh more through the same means, and under duress, I applied, which was also transferred to the PFC account, she claimed. They also captured a picture of my signature on Skype under the pretext of validating my Aadhaar card for investigation, she added. The victim reported the incident to the Uttar Pradesh Police's Cyber Crime officials, alleging a fraud of 11.11 lakh and a digital arrest lasting from morning to night. Inspector Reeta Yadav, in-charge of the Cyber Crime police station in Noida Sector 36, confirmed the filing of an FIR under the relevant provisions of the Information Technology Act and Indian Penal Code (IPC). An investigation into the case is underway, she stated. Ms. Yadav urged the public to exercise caution regarding emerging online crimes, advising them to promptly contact the police through the central helpline number 1930, emergency number 112, or report such activities to the cyber desk of local police stations. People should also be aware that the police never question anyone digitally. If someone threatens you in this manner, request a proper notice, ask for their details, and inform them that you are going to the police station to meet them, Ms. Yadav emphasized.

The government proposes a phased approach preferably in 10 installments to mitigate immediate impact on state finances. BENGALURU: Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah has written a letter to Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Friday seeking clarification and revised procedure on IGST provisional settlement. Siddaramaiah pointed out that Rs 798 crore out of IGST settlement has been adjusted out of advance apportionment to make up a shortfall in IGST balance on December 26 last year, when the BJP government was in power. Siddaramaiah said the government wished to seek details on the accumulation of IGST negative balance until now and raised concerns about the impact on treasurymanagement on the statefinances and said there isa huge negative balance of Rs 34,000 crore. He said to facilitate better understanding, the government sought information on the total amount of negative IGST balance and the methodology employed for distributing this amount among the states for recovery. Considering the pressing need for resources and potential challenges associated with lump sum reduction, the state government requested the Union government to consider allowing deductions to be made in installments. The government proposes a phased approach preferably in 10 installments to mitigate immediate impact on state finances. A transparent and collaborative approach in addressing these concerns will contribute to the effective functioning of the financial ecosystem, he said.
