Intellectuals, activists stage protest in support of Rohngiyas



Chandigarh: Leading intellectuals, doctors, lawyers, activists in Chandigarh staged a strong, vociferous protest in Saturday evening in Chandigarh's Sector 17 Plaza in support of Rohngiya Muslims. Protesters demanded that India must immediately grant refugee status to Rohingyas and adopt a compassionate, humanitarian policy on this issue.
 
Among those who led the protest were academician turned politician Prof Manjit Singh, leading litterateur Sukhdev Singh Sirsa, Dr Pyare Lal Garg, lawyer Loveneet Thakur,  Microbiologist Dr Jagdish Kumar and many others.
 
Earlier this week, the Indian government told the Supreme Court that about 40,000 Rohingya Muslim refugees in the country were a threat to national security and they would be deported. India's stance has surprised many refugees who were pinning hopes on New Delhi's support.

Senior Journalist KJ Singh, mother found dead at their residence



IN YET ANOTHER shocking incident, a senior journalist KJ Singh and his 92-year-old mother were found dead in their Phase 3B 2 Mohali residence on Saturday.
 
Police officials have reached the spot and are investigating into the possible reason behind the murder. The house was found to be ransacked, giving rise to the speculation of a possible burglary.
 
Police officials are on the spot to speed up the investigation. "There was injury marks on their necks," Mohali deputy superintendent of police (DSP) Alam Vijay Singh said.
 
Singh’s Ford Ikon car is also missing, they said.
 
"I condemn ghastly murder of senior journalist KJ Singh and his mother at Mohali. Urge police to nab perpetrators immediately," tweeted senior Akali Dal leader Sukhbir Singh Badal.

 
Preliminary reports say Singh's throat was found slit while his mother Gurcharan Kaur was strangled, suggesting resistance by the victim.

The bodies were found lying in a pool of blood when the police were called by the neighbours.
 
Singh, who was in his 60s, had worked with The Tribune, The Times of India and several other English language publications.
 
A few days back, Santanu Bhowmick, a journalist from ‘Dinrat’ news channel was killed in West Tripura district while covering a protest rally. 

On September 05, renowned journalist Gauri Lankesh was shot dead by unidentified assailants at her residence in Bangalore. 
 
SIT SET UP TO PROBE MURDER
 
Acting on a directive from Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh, the Punjab Police has set up a Special Investigative Team (SIT) under Inspector General (Crime) to probe the suspected murder of senior journalist KJ Singh and his mother.

'Falahari Baba'
Another self-styled Godman arrested on rape charges
23.09.17 - TEAM PT
Another self-styled Godman arrested on rape charges



POLICE IN RAJASTHAN’s Alwar arrested on Saturday Falahari Maharaj, a self-styled godman who is accused of raping a 21-year-old law student.
 
Famous among his devotees as Falahari Baba for his reported fruits-only diet, the 70-year-old spiritual leader had allegedly raped the woman at his ashram on August 7.
 
The woman, whose parents have been followers of Falahari Baba for years, has alleged that she was assaulted at his lavish ashram in Rajasthan's Alwar on August 7. She was allegedly told that the Baba couldn't meet anyone during an "eclipse" and asked to stay the night. The woman has told the police that the Baba called her at night to his room and assaulted her.
 
The woman, a law intern, had visited the ashram to donate some money. It was apparently on the baba's recommendation that she secured an internship under a senior lawyer in Delhi, for which she received a stipend of Rs. 3,000.

"Her family told her to give it to the Baba. When she went to meet him he told her to wait and then raped and threatened her. The parents came to us after the woman told them everything and we registered a case," said Archana Jha, a police officer in Chhattisgarh's Bilaspur.

It was Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh's conviction in rape case that gave the woman courage to report about the matter.
 
She broke her silence after the Ram Rahim verdict and based on her complaint the Bilaspur police registered a case on September 11.
 
The godman commands a strong following across northern India and the delay in his arrest sparked speculation that police might be holding back due to political pressure. 

The father of the woman had said on Friday that more such cases would come up as the investigation progressed.

"There are more such cases which will come up now. There are devotees associated with the godman who couldn’t come forward earlier because of fear, they will come up… Soon, the reality of the man will be revealed,” he said.

Police said the self-styled godman, who also has an ashram in Bilaspur, allegedly threatened the woman to not disclose the incident to anyone, citing his influence.

After the complaint, the Baba got himself admitted to an Alwar hospital for 'high blood pressure', an NDTV report said.

All vitals were found normal and the police arrested Falahari Baba on Saturday.
 
The 'Godman' has devotees in India as well as abroad, the police say.

CBI STATEMENT IN APEX COURT AN "ABSOLUTE LIE"
Feel like I am part of a 007 movie: Karti Chidambaram takes swipe at CBI
23.09.17 - TEAM PT
Feel like I am part of a 007 movie: Karti Chidambaram takes swipe at CBI



I FEEL LIKE I am part of a 007 movie said Karti Chidambaram, son of former union minister P Chidambaram. He was taking a swipe at the Central Bureau of Investigation which told the Supreme Court that he had foreign accounts.
 
Secret/undisclosed accounts/properties. Overseas trips to conceal them etc etc, makes me feel like I am part of a 007 movie, Karti said on Twitter.
 
 
The CBI on Friday told the SC that Karti Chidambaram went abroad to close his foreign accounts.
 
Meanwhile, P. Chidambaram has described the CBI statement in the apex court as an "absolute lie".

"By quoting CBI as the soure, the lie does not become the truth," he said reacting to CBI`s claim in the court during a hearing on the Look Out notice against Karti which he has challenged.
 
The stinging response from the Chidambaram family to the CBI claim came hours after a top government lawyer sought to justify in the Supreme Court a lookout circular issued in July against Karti Chidambaram. Additional Solicitor General Tushar Mehta had told a three-judge bench of the top court that Karti had been going abroad to close his undisclosed bank accounts.
 
Justifying the issuance of a look out circular (LoC) against Karti, the agency also claimed before a bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra that "shocking" details have emerged during his foreign visits which were directly connected to the FIR lodged in the corruption case.

The CBI FIR, lodged on May 15, had alleged irregularities in Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) clearance to INX Media for receiving overseas funds to the tune of Rs 305 crore in 2007 when Karti's father was the Union Finance Minister.
 
The charge against Karti is he helped get the approvals in return for kickbacks. He has denied the accusation on several occasions. 

His father has long insisted that Karti is being targeted by the NDA government only because he is his son but "the real target is me".

"Why doesn't CBI take my open offer and name the alleged 'undisclosed assets'? the former minister asked after the probe agency's submission in court were reported by the media. "An absolute lie, by quoting CBI, lie doesn't become truth," he said, asking the CBI to reveal the secretly-held assets it could establish.

"I have already made a public statement that my family and I will execute any document necessary to transfer the alleged 'undisclosed asset' to the government so that government can become the owner," the senior Congress leader added.

Karim Morani, producer of 'Chennai Express' surrenders in rape case

Karim Morani, producer of 'Chennai Express' surrenders in rape case



BOLLYWOOD SHOWMAN Karim Morani, who produced several hit films including the Shahrukh Khan starrer Chennai Express, surrendered to the Hyderabad police on Saturday, September 23, midnight,  in connection with a rape case.
 
The news came after the Supreme Court rejected his anticipatory bail plea on Friday. The Chennai Express producer will be produced in the court today, IANS reported.
 
A case was registered against Morani on January 18 for allegedly raping a woman on promise of marriage. The woman, aged around 25, lodged a complaint with Hayathnagar Police. She accused Morani of raping her on different occasions in Mumbai, with false marriage promises.

The alleged incident took place in 2015, following which, a case was registered under Indian Penal Code (IPC) sections 417 (cheating), 376 (rape) 342 (wrongful confinement), 506 (criminal intimidation), 493 (cohabitation caused by a man deceitfully inducing a belief of lawful marriage) and other relevant sections.
 
Morani claims the sexual relationship was consensual.
 
While Morani had secured an anticipatory bail from a local court, the Hyderabad police filed a petition in court seeking the cancellation of his anticipatory bail.

It was then that the producer had filed a petition in Supreme Court challenging the Hyderabad High Court's verdict cancelling his bail.
 
Karim Morani is known for producing films like 'Chennai Express,' 'Dilwale,' 'Ra.One' and others.

Punjab Today believes in serious, engaging, narrative journalism at a time when mainstream media houses seem to have given up on long-form writing and news television has blurred or altogether erased the lines between news and slapstick entertainment. We at Punjab Today believe that readers such as yourself appreciate cerebral journalism, and would like you to hold us against the best international industry standards. Brickbats are welcome even more than bouquets, though an occasional pat on the back is always encouraging. Good journalism can be a lifeline in these uncertain times worldwide. You can support us in myriad ways. To begin with, by spreading word about us and forwarding this reportage. Stay engaged.
