76% Ministers in Bihar tainted: ADR

first_imgA report released by the Association for Democratic Reforms (ADR), an NGO, says 22 of the 29 Ministers (76%) in the newly formed Nitish Kumar Cabinet face criminal charges. This is higher than the corresponding figure for his Cabinet during the previous “grand alliance” government with the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD), in which 19 of the 29 Ministers (69%) were tainted. The ADR report was based on the affidavits filed by the candidates to the Election Commission.Serious chargesOf the 22 Ministers, nine face serious criminal charges of murder, attempt to murder, dacoity, theft, fraud and atrocities against women. The report further says that 72% of the Ministers are millionaires, while nine had stated their educational qualifications to be between Class 8 and Class 12 pass.Citing this report, the RJD leader and erstwhile Bihar Deputy Chief Minister, Tejashwi Yadav, while addressing presspersons at his residence in Patna, hit out at Mr. Kumar. He wondered if Mr. Kumar’s conscience would now wake up and prod him to act against the tainted Ministers.Mr Kumar had on July 26 broken away from the “grand alliance”, citing corruption allegations against Mr. Yadav. Subsequently, a new alliance of the JD(U) and the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance was sworn in.“Where is Mr. Kumar’s conscience? What kind of a conscience is it? Is it a conscience for the [CM’s] chair? Is it a conscience for Modi? What kind of conscience is this that falls asleep or wakes up as per its own convenience?” Mr Yadav said.“Would Mr. Kumar do development with this 76% tainted Cabinet?”Mr. Yadav also hoped that Mr. Kumar would ask the Prime Minister to disclose the names of political leaders that featured in the Panama papers. “PMs of two countries have already resigned due to the Panama leaks. Names of BJP leaders and their sons have come up in the Panama papers. I hope Nitish Kumar would demand of the Prime Minister that he make all these names public,” he said, adding that he would soon start a “Vishwasghat Yatra (‘Betrayal Rally’) from Champaran and covering all the districts of Bihar.last_img read more

HC summons top police officers in road rage case

first_imgIn a road rage case that took the twist of threats to the victim’s life, the Rajasthan High Court has summoned Director-General of Police O.P. Galhotra and Jaipur Police Commissioner Sanjay Agarwal to appear in the court and explain faults in investigation after the registration of the first case. The victim has alleged that the accused persons are close to some influential police officers.Following a complaint of the victim, Sanjay Gupta, who was thrashed by some occupants of a speeding SUV on Jawaharlal Nehru Marg here on December 21, 2017, the Chief Metropolitan Magistrate had returned the chargesheet filed by the police on February 7 with the direction for reinvestigation.Justice Mahendra Maheshwari at the High Court’s Jaipur Bench summoned over the weekend the two top police officers to appear in the court on July 26 on a writ petition moved by Mr. Gupta, 40, who was peeved by shoddy investigation by the police into the case. Mr. Gupta alleged that the officers at the police station concerned had kept him waiting, instead of getting him medically examined, and exerted pressure on him to enter into a compromise with the accused.Victim thrashedMr. Gupta, working with the Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation in Jaipur, was beaten by the occupants of the speeding car when he confronted them following the car’s sudden turn that unbalanced his two-wheeler. His spectacles broke and he bled from nose during the thrashing.The victim later came to know that the car’s occupants were well-connected with the police. “Satya Dutt, who is named in the FIR, is related to Deputy Commissioner of Police (Jaipur North) Satyendra Singh, who influenced other police officers,” Mr. Gupta alleged in his writ petition.Revised chargesheetWith the “extraneous considerations” hampering a free and fair investigation, the police filed a chargesheet against only one accused, Satish Kumar, without getting him identified by Mr. Gupta. After the CMM found the probe incomplete and returned the chargesheet, the revised chargesheet has been filed in the court following registration of a fresh case and seizure of the vehicle in question.The High Court has asked the two police officers to inform the court of the disciplinary or penal action taken against the first Investigating Officer for his lapse or negligence.last_img read more

IPL 2017, MI vs DD Highlights: How Mitchell McClenaghan, Jasprit Bumrah scripted Mumbai’s victory

first_imgHello and welcome to the LIVE COVERAGE of Match 25 of the Indian Premier League between the Mumbai Indians versus the Delhi Daredevils in Mumbai. (POINTS TABLE | SCORECARD)DELHI INNINGS:23.49 IST: MUMBAI WIN BY 14 RUNS! A low full toss outside off, Cummins reaches out for it and hits it to deep point for a single. Smiles all around in the Mumbai camp and the players are looking really happy. What an effort from them! 9, 0, 5, 6, 0, 0, no that’s not a pin code. These are the figures of the top six Delhi batsmen. This pretty much sums up where they lost the match. It was always looking a tough task after the start they got but Chris Morris and Kagiso Rabada stuck together, stitched a 91-run stand to take their side really close. However, some outstanding death bowling from Jasprit Bumrah sealed the deal for Mumbai. He allowed only 9 runs in his last two overs (17th and 19th of the match) to ensure that Hardik Pandya has a cushion of 25 runs to defend in the final over.So, it’s down to the final over!Bumrah bowls a gorgeous over.

There was a noise as the ball went past the pad and replays show that the white object had stayed low and brushed the pads on its way to the keeper.20.46 IST: Time Out taken. Great start for Delhi as they have managed to remove four top batsmen from the opposite team. Mumbai are under the pump and need partnerships. Delhi would look to build more pressure in the middle overs.20.46 IST: WICKET! Rohit Sharma’s poor run continues. Mumbai are falling apart. The one time they batted first in this season, they ended up on the losing side. Is the story going to repeat? Anyways Rohit’s struggle against spin continues. Mishra tosses this up around off, Rohit Sharma kneels and sweeps it. However, he fails to find the gap between deep square leg and deep mid-wicket. Pat Cummins goes to his left in the deep and reverse cups the opportunity. A huge, huge blow for Mumbai to lose their captain so early. Delhi is all smiles and why not they have dismissed four Mumbai batsmen for just 60. Mumbai Indians 60/4 (8.1 overs) vs Delhi Daredevils20.39 IST: WICKET! Pat removes the in-form Nitish Rana and Mumbai are in a bit of a bother here. Cummins bowls it short and around off, Rana goes back and pulls it hard. He was unaware of the fact that this was a set up and he fell for it. Corey Anderson at deep mid-wicket pouches it easily. Delhi are on top at the Wankhede. Mumbai Indians 56/3 (7.2 overs) vs Delhi Daredevils20.36 IST: FOUR! Reverse swept! Bowls this outside off, Rana gets into the position early and reverse sweeps it through the vacant point region for a boundary.That’s the end of the powerplay and we’re on track now, #MI 48/2. #DDTweets #MIvDD #DilDilliHai- Delhi Daredevils (@DelhiDaredevils) 22 April 201720.29 IST: WICKET! Crazy running, says Danny Morrison on air. Morris bowls a length ball around off, Rana defends it towards the off side and sets off instantly. Sanju Samson storms ahead from cover-point, gathers the ball and hurls a throw at the striker’s end and connects. Buttler is not even in the picture and has to depart. Rana is upset with himself to call the Englishman for a run. Buttler goes in a disappointing manner. Outstanding work by Samson too.

Full delivery, on the stumps, Jos gets across to scoop it but doesn’t connect it well at all. The ball goes to Pant, the keeper, at a good height. He fails to catch the ball. But to be honest he should’ve given that he also had the gloves. How costly will this be? Buttler was in sublime form in the previous match.20.10 IST: FOUR! Lucky runs these for Mumbai!

Mitchell McClenaghan has also provided the breakthroughs at the crucial moments.On the other hand, Delhi, who are currently at the fourth spot with two wins and three losses, lost their last match against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) despite a good performance.Packed with young batsmen like Sam Billings, Sanju Samson, Karun Nair and Shreyas Iyer, the Zaheer Khan-led Delhi’s strength lies in their array of talented seam-bowling all-rounders.Bowlers like Chris Morris, Corey Anderson, Angelo Mathews and Pat Cummins provide the depth and balance to the side. But the exciting team sometimes faces an absence of a pivot around which the team will bat.So, in the clash, Delhi will be eyeing a win this time to regain their winning momentum.last_img read more

(Photo by Chris Pizzello/Invision/AP) “Star Trek: Discovery” also stars Jason Isaacs, Michelle Yeoh and Shazad Latif. Executive producer Alex Kurtzman told the Television Critics Association Tuesday that they “spent a lot of time” discussing how to create this new world for TV that felt authentic to the “Star Trek” universe.

Everyone is so passionate. The craftsmanship here in our entire company, behind the camera and in front of the camera, is nothing short of stellar,” said Green. Kurtzman also debuted the theme song for “Star Trek: Discovery” performed by a 60-piece orchestra. It plays homage to the original theme and the entire song will play under a credit sequence in each episode. “Star Trek: Discovery” stars Sonequa Martin-Green of “The Walking Dead,” as central character, First Officer Michael Burnham. She’s the foster daughter of the Vulcan Sarek, who is Spock’s father. Also during that time, executive producer Bryan Fuller decided to exit the series as showrunner to focus on other projects. The timeline for the series is 10 years prior to the original series, or TOS, as Trekkies say. Kurtzman said “it became clearer and clearer” that the targeted January debut would “compromise the quality of the show,” so it was pushed with the blessing of CBS Chairman and CEO Leslie Moonves. The series premiere will broadcast on CBS Sept. 24. Immediately following, the first and second episodes will stream on CBS All Access. New episodes going forward will be available on Sundays. Executive producer Akiva Goldsman said, “We are going to cross paths with components that ‘Trek’ fans are familiar with, but it is its own standalone story with its own characters and its own unique vision of ‘Trek.’” Login/Register With: Facebook Twitterlast_img read more
