CBI seeks sanction to prosecute 3 TMC MPs in Narada case

first_imgNew Delhi: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has sought prosecution sanction for three TMC MPs and one former MP of the party from Lok Sabha Speaker, Om Birla, in connection with the Narada sting operation case, sources in the know here said on Thursday.The central probe agency has sought sanction to prosecute Prasun Banerjee, Kakoli Ghosh Dastidar and Saugata Roy – all sitting members of the 17th Lok Sabha – and former TMC MP Suvendu Adhikary. Interestingly, no prosecution sanction has been sought for Mukul Roy, who jumped ship to the ruling BJP, within four months of CBI registering its FIR. Also Read – Uddhav bats for ‘Sena CM’While the sanction to prosecute these four accused in the Narada case was sought almost nearly four months ago from the former Speaker of the Lower House, the probe agency has sent a reminder to Birla with regards to the sanction. All four of these senior Trinamool Congress members have been questioned by the CBI in the Narada case, which came up after video footage was released, purportedly showing several senior members of the ruling party in West Bengal demanding and accepting cash bribes. Also Read – Farooq demands unconditional release of all detainees in J&KThe series of videos, dubbed the Narada tapes, was first released on Narada News, owned and operated by Matthew Samuel, who had visited senior party leaders pretending to be the owner of a fictitious company, asking for favours. The CBI’s preliminary probe in the case had established that Dastidar, Adhikary and Roy were all seen accepting Rs 5 lakh in cash from Samuel, who was the sting operator, covertly recording his meetings with the leaders. In the Narada tapes, the probe agency has also established that Banerjee was shown accepting Rs 4 lakh in cash. However, all four have consistently denied that the money they were shown accepting was bribe amount, insisting to the probe agency that Samuel had pretended to donate to their election campaign before the 2014 Lok Sabha polls. Meanwhile, the central probe agency has also summoned 11 people accused in the Narada case to appear before agency officials in Kolkata, so their voice samples can be collected, as mandated by the Supreme Court of India. This list of 11 includes ex-TMC MLA Sovan Chatterjee, TMC MP Aparupa Poddar, former TMC MP Sultan Ahmed and other politicians accused in the case, except senior BJP leader Mukul Roy, formerly of the Trinamool Congress. Even though the CBI has established that Mukul Roy had demanded money and indicated that an IPS officer, SMH Meerza would accept it on his behalf, the probe agency has not sought sanction to prosecute him as of yet. In fact, the tapes also show Meerza accepting cash amounts on behalf of Mukul Roy. The role of investigators in the case, is as a result, being perceived to be very controversial.last_img read more

Air India earmarks Rs 500 cr to get grounded aircraft operational

first_imgMumbai: To meet high demand and raise its market, national carrier Air India has earmarked Rs 500 crore to get 19 of its grounded passenger jets back into operations. Currently, the national passenger carrier has 19 aircraft grounded due to various reasons most prominent amongst them being expensive spare parts and engine overhauls. However, an increase in demand due to the peak travel season along with industry’s capacity constraint has led the airline to earmark at least Rs 500 crore for the grounded fleet. Also Read – Commercial vehicle sales to remain subdued in current fiscal: Icra”This is an opportune time to raise our market share and meet the healthy demand. All our assets (aircraft) have been deployed strategically. But we still have more aircraft which are grounded,” a senior Air India official told IANS from Mumbai. “We expect at least two aircraft to join the fleet within days. Addition of other aircraft will aide us to augment our market share.” Notwithstanding the fresh funds, the official said that all grounded aircraft are unlikely to become operational before August.

As of 2019, Air India Group — Air India, Air India Express, Alliance Air — have a combined fleet of over 160 aircraft which fly to 122 destinations, including 78 domestic and 44 international destinations. Additionally, the airline plans to hire more cabin crew and pilots. The plan envisages the airline to hire over 200 cabin crew from the now grounded Jet Airways. “We have already finalised 150 crew from Jet Airways,” the official added.last_img read more

Morocco should be selective in attracting FDI, EIB representative

first_imgCasablanca – Morocco should be selective in attracting foreign direct investment (FDI), by analyzing the socio-economic benefits and the technology transfer, said Thursday in Casablanca, Henry Marty- Gauquié, representative of the European investment Bank (EIB). Speaking at the 1st Economic Forum organized by the Circle of Economists, Marty-Gauquié called on Morocco to be selective in attracting FDI, to invest in the education system, and to urgently reform the pensions fund.“Morocco has valued its comparative advantages and its strategic position,” said Marty-Gauquié, noting that the Kingdom understood early on the need to implement governance and social reforms. The EIB representative noted that these reforms have led to political stability, continued growth, and high-level trade and political relations with the European Union.last_img read more

UN calls on Israel to halt further settlement activity on occupied Palestinian

Robert Serry, the UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process (UNSCO), reiterated that such activity anywhere in occupied territory is illegal, according to a statement issued by his office.It is also contrary to the Road Map peace plan espoused by the diplomatic Quartet – comprising the UN, European Union, Russia and the United States – which seeks to establish a two-State solution of Israel and Palestine living side by side in peace and security within recognized borders, he said.On Monday Israel approved the construction of 942 homes in Gilo, a neighbourhood in East Jerusalem. Mr. Serry called on the Israeli Government to halt such activity, which undermines efforts to bring about resumed Israeli-Palestinian negotiations and prejudices final status discussions.Senior UN officials have been calling for months now for an end to the impasse in Israeli-Palestinian negotiations, which have been stalled since late September following Israel’s refusal to extend a 10-month freeze on settlement activity in the occupied Palestinian territory. That decision prompted Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas to withdraw from direct talks with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, which had only resumed a few weeks earlier after a two-year hiatus. 5 April 2011A top United Nations envoy today called on Israel to halt further planning for new settlements in the occupied Palestinian territory in the wake of the Government’s approval of more Jewish housing units for a neighbourhood in East Jerusalem. read more

Two killed as Kenyan police try to quell riot in packed refugee

1 July 2011Two refugees were killed when Kenyan police tried to quell a riot that broke out in the world’s biggest refugee camp where the number of mostly Somali residents has swelled to more than 370,000, spawning overcrowding problems, the United Nations reported today. Two refugees were killed when Kenyan police tried to quell a riot that broke out in the world’s biggest refugee camp where the number of mostly Somali residents has swelled to more than 370,000, spawning overcrowding problems, the United Nations reported today.The unrest erupted yesterday when residents of Dagahaley refugee camp, one of the three that comprise the Dadaab complex of camps in Kenya’s North-eastern province, gathered to protest an attempt to demolish illegal structures around a food distribution point, a spokesperson for the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), Adrian Edwards, told reporters in Geneva.Police initially used tear gas in an effort to disperse the crowd but reportedly resorted to live ammunition later, killing the two refugees and wounding about a dozen others.“Sadly, this incident is symptomatic of the pressures at the camp amid overcrowding compounded by the very high number of arrivals we have been seeing recently from Somalia,” said Mr. Edwards.More than 61,000 Somalis fleeing violence and severe drought in Somalia have sought safety and succour in Kenya since the beginning of the year.“As of 6 June, we had opened three emergency centres in Dadaab, [and] since then a further 27,000 people have approached the reception centres at these sites,” said Mr. Edwards, adding that the total number of refugees in Dadaab surpassed 370,000 last week.Somali refugees have also been moving into Ethiopia, with 55,000 have arrived since the start of the year. Twenty-six per cent of the newly arrived people are malnourished, with the malnutrition rate among children estimated at three in five. UNHCR has introduced a blanket feeding programme for young children and additional funding is required to keep the nutrition programmes going.The two established refugee camps in Ethiopia’s south-east – Bokolmanyo and Malkadida – which were opened in April 2009 and February last year respectively, accommodate more than 70,000 refugees and have reached their full capacity. A new camp was opened last Friday at Kobe and 7,500 Somalis had been transported to the site by yesterday, according to Mr. Edwards. Ethiopia hosts a total of 130,000 Somali refugees.Kenya is itself facing a humanitarian crisis as a result of the severe drought ravaging large swathes of the Horn of Africa. In drought-affected areas, monthly hospital admissions for severe malnutrition are 78 per cent higher than last year, Marixie Mercado, a spokesperson for the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF), told reporters in Geneva.In Turkana district in the northwest, acute malnutrition rates are the highest ever recorded in the area, at 37.4 per cent.Mr. Edwards cited aid agencies inside Somalia as saying they remain concerned about landmines and other security threats which are making access extremely dangerous.“We are also receiving reports that people displaced by drought, lack of food and insecurity in the Bay, Bakool and Lower Shabelle regions [of Somalia] are arriving in Mogadishu in search of food and other humanitarian assistance,” he added.Humanitarian conditions in Somalia, particularly the southern region, are at their worst in a decade. A total of 2.85 million people, or one in three Somalis, are said to be experiencing food crisis and in need of other forms of assistance, including water, sanitation and health care, according to Ms. Mercado.UNHCR has also distributed shelter materials, blankets, mattresses, basic household goods and hygiene items, to people displaced by fighting in the Belet Hawo area in Gedo region.In total, there are more than 750,000 Somali refugees in countries in the wider region, mostly in neighbouring Kenya (which hosts 405,000), Yemen (187,000) and Ethiopia (130,000). Another 1.46 million people are displaced within Somalia. read more

Accurately Counting NBA Tattoos Isnt Easy Even If Youre Up Close

Ethan Swan’s database of NBA players’ tattoos is the most complete such record I’m aware of, but it’s not the only one. (Swan, whom I wrote about Friday, gave us permission to publish his data on GitHub; you can see it here.)The Sports Geeks have collected some information, but their page on NBA tattoos is out of date; many players currently in the league aren’t listed. The Tumblr Basketball Player Tattoos aggregates photos — including some really striking ones — but it hasn’t been updated in almost a year. (Let me know if you’ve seen other data sets.)Harvey Pollack, the 92-year-old director of statistical information for the Philadelphia 76ers, produces the only list I’ve seen that approaches the completeness of Swan’s. (My colleague Carl Bialik, who conducted the data analysis in the Swan piece, profiled Pollack last month.) Each year, Pollack dedicates a page of the Sixers’ printed statistical guide to tattoo data. The only one I could find that he put online was from 2010, the year before Swan got started.Unlike Swan, who simply Googles “NBA tattoo” and follows players on Twitter, Pollack and his staff get their information firsthand. They log the tattoos they see on visiting players and quiz team trainers about body art that may lurk beneath the players’ uniforms.But looking guys over as they dribble by doesn’t seem to be as effective as Googling. Swan counted 230 tattooed players in 2010-11, while Pollack found 198. The next year, they both came up with 237. Last year, Swan’s total was 250 and Pollack’s was just 157. (Pollack hasn’t released his total for this year.)So whom, specifically, did Pollack miss in 2012-13? Let’s take the Atlanta Hawks as an example. He counted tattoos on six Hawks but missed them on five others — John Jenkins, Shelvin Mack, Johan Petro, Mike Scott and Louis Williams. The design on Jenkins’s chest may have been hard to see through his jersey, but it should have been easy to see the tattoo on Mack’s arm — especially since he briefly played for the Sixers that season. read more

Scouts pay out £42k to 11yearold boy discriminated against due to autism

first_img“We are very sorry that Ben and his family were not supported as they should have been by their cub scout pack, and we have made a personal apology to them.”While cases like this are very unusual, we know that action must be taken. We have established an inquiry to investigate what went wrong in this case.”The association said it was also looking at plans for mandatory training for all adult volunteers on “how to make reasonable adjustments for young people with developmental disabilities”. A Scouts group has had to pay out £42,000 after being accused of discriminating against a boy due to his autism. 11-year-old Ben Gleeson joined the 10th Harpenden Scout Group, in Hertfordshire, in 2015 but was later instructed he could not go to camps or take part in athletics without supervision.His family sued the scout group under the Equality Act, and said that what they proposed was effectively a ban. They settled the dispute out of court last year.The dispute stemmed from a short episode Ben had at a cub scout camp in 2016, in which he became distressed, trying to run a short distance from the rest of the group after being asked to change into a pair of shoes he couldn’t find, and later on he said he did  not want to join an egg-and-spoon race because of a phobia of spoons.His mother Beverly Gleeson told the BBC: “Pretty much every event had to be supervised on a one-to-one basis, which I felt wasn’t inclusive. Ben Gleeson with his mother Beverly Credit:BBC She also said the actions would “single Ben out” and that she feared it would make him “feel different.”Ben added: “It was quite upsetting, my friends were there and I quite enjoyed it.””I don’t like the idea of someone following me all the time.”The family’s solicitor, Chris Fry of Fry Law, said: “I am pretty sure no one goes into scouting looking to exclude anyone. Those giving up their time need to know that they are properly trained and that they are protected by the organisation that they love and serve.”The organisation needs to anticipate that scouts with autism need reasonable adjustments so they can access activities in the same way as other children.”The scout group disputed a number of the family’s claims, but the Scout Association told the BBC the handling of the case was “completely unacceptable”.

Air India wants Rs 3250 crore loan for shortterm relief to cash

first_imgA fuel tanker moves past Air India passenger jets parked at an airport in Kolkata May 6, 2012.Reuters fileAir India plans to take up to Rs 3,250 crore loan to meet urgent working capital requirements and will get the Narendra Modi government’s guarantee for the proposed borrowings in a short time.The tenure of the loan will be one year and the amount proposed will be drawn in two or three tranches, the Times of India reported.According to a senior official, the airline is already facing “cash deficit” and the loans will offer some short-term relief and meet the immediate capital requirements. The Centre’s guarantee, which is expected shortly, will be valid for a period of one year, or till the date of disinvestment.The decision comes at a time when the airline is burdened with high debt and is incurring loss due to which a ministerial panel is working on strategies to reduce the financial burden on the government. The airline has a huge debt of around Rs 60,000 crore.However, government think-tank NITI Aayog had earlier suggested that around Rs 30,000 crore be written off to make Air India an attractive sale proposition. Government sources are trying to cut down on losses by exploring options where the sale could be cash positive for the Centre.The government has also appointed an adviser for the sale of its stake in loss-making Air India. While the government is looking to sell a majority stake, there were suggestions made to them that completely exiting the airline is the best option and will maximise valuations too. Air India was nationalised in 1953 as it was perceived as a matter of national pride. However, the government is now looking to sell its stakes as it’s debt-ridden. Banks have also been asked to submit their financial bids by September 19.In June, reports had also suggested that Tata Group had held informal talks with senior members of the government on a possible takeover of the airline.However, the first official interest in acquiring the national carrier came from Indigo in June. There have been informal interests from both domestic and international airlines too.last_img read more

I Feel Good Final Parkland Shooting Survivor Released From Hospital

Anthony was the last Parkland survivor to be released from the hospital and now his lawyer is preparing a lawsuit against the Sheriff’s Office and others in connection with the shooting.Seven weeks after a gunman opened fire on Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., wounding 17 people and killing 17 others, the last survivor has been released from the hospital and is recovering at home.Broward Health Medical Center treated all of the wounded from the Feb. 14 massacre and confirmed to NPR that 15-year-old Anthony Borges was the final patient to be discharged.Anthony Borges is home! He is amazing and I am so proud of his bravery ❤️ Hear him out tomorrow as he shares his story with @StoriesUntoldUS #StoriesUntold pic.twitter.com/ykA1OChzLH— Barbara/ #STORIESUNTOLD (@bswagggyway) April 4, 2018Anthony was also among the most gravely injured.He was shot five times, one bullet shattering his thigh bone and another piercing his back, according to his GoFundMe page. He has undergone nine surgeries and had a third of his liver removed, according to NBC News.He was in “a lot of pain,” his father said on Facebook. He recounted that his son endured one surgery to place a plate in his femur and another to ward off infection in his abdomen.“This kid is an athlete, and he’s obviously in very good shape,” Borges’ lawyer Alex Arreaza told The Sun-Sentinal in early March. “He has grit and is super tough.”Anthony has also been hailed a hero and credited with saving the lives of several others after he reportedly attempted to close and lock a door during the shooting with about 20 students inside.Anthony was shot through the door, reports CNN.Arreaza told The Miami Herald that Anthony, a Boy Scout, managed to use his training to create a tourniquet and stop the bleeding.“I feel good,” Anthony told NBC News on Wednesday, from his bed at home where he continues his recovery, even though at one point, Anthony said, he thought he “was going to die.”Now his lawyer, Arreaza, is preparing a lawsuit against Broward County, Broward County Public Schools and the county sheriff’s office, reports CNN.“The failure of Broward County Public Schools, and of the Principal and School Resource Officer to adequately protect students, and in particular our client, from life-threatening harm were unreasonable, callous and negligent,” Arreaza wrote in a notice of intent to sue.He told The Miami Herald “there could have been a lot more done to prevent this tragedy.”“Due to his condition, Mr. Borges is currently unable to walk and has a great deal of difficulty performing rudimentary tasks for himself, requiring assistance constantly,” Arreaza said in the letter, according to the Herald. “Unfortunately medical bills can bankrupt a family and it has to be addressed.”In the meantime, well-wishers are pitching in.Anthony’s GoFundMe page has raised more than $800,000 toward a $1 million goal.“He has a long road of recovery ahead of him,” the page says.At least one other family is also preparing to sue.The Herald reports the law firm representing Kyle Laman, a 15-year-old student shot in the attack, has sent a notification letter of its intent to sue to the Broward County Sheriff’s Office, the FBI, the Broward School Board and other defendants.The Sheriff’s Office has come under intense criticism for the way it handled multiple complaints about the alleged gunman in the years prior to the attack.Copyright 2018 NPR.
