Haryana govt announces Rs 4 cr, class 1 category job, plot of land

The government of Haryana on Thursday announced 40 million rupees and a place in the 1st place silver medal of the Tokyo Olympic Games 2020, Ravi Kumar Dahia.

He will also be given a piece of land, which he wants in Haryana, with 50% permission, the government said. A closed battlefield will be built in the village of Nahri, he added.

Daya won silver after falling to Zavur Ugeev of the Russian Olympic Committee (ROC) in the 57 kg free men’s category.

Uguev was in charge of the fight and did not give the Indian athlete a chance to come out with bright colors as India lost the chance to win their first gold medal in wrestling.

Despite a careful start, Uguev reached this point and doubled his lead in seconds.

Ravi may have scored 2-2, but Uguev, who has shown great strength, also led the way as Indian wrestling was trailing 4-2 after the end of the first half.
Uguev came to shoot all reels and continued his lead as he did not give Ravi a chance to control the game.

Amid Standoff With India, China’s New Border Law Does Not Change Things On Ground

China’s new border law is aimed at improving the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the country’s border regions. Amid the Eastern Ladakh standoff with India, the move may be significant.

Last Saturday, China passed a new state border law to protect and maintain the sovereignty and integrity of its territorial territory. Amid ongoing border disputes between India and China in the eastern region of Ladakh from April 2020, a new law aimed at protecting the monarchy could be significant.

The final round of negotiations between the military commanders between the two countries was unsuccessful, although both sides agreed to meet again permanently.

Why the new law is currently a question with no simple answers to it.

This is the first time China has enacted legislation on its land borders. It generally clarifies how these areas are managed. The new law states that people living in border areas will support border patrols and military-led surveillance operations.

It prevents ordinary citizens from building permanent structures near the border without the permission of the authorities. No citizens are allowed to drive drones in sensitive areas of ​​the border. By the way, the law also says weapons can be used on those who cross the border illegally.

The People’s Liberation Army and the Armed Forces are responsible for border patrols. China owns a vast expanse of land and covers some 14,000 miles [22,000 km] of territory along with 14 other countries. However, Beijing has resolved border issues with everyone except India and Bhutan.

Now, the country is ready to resolve its border disputes with Bhutan, with the latest memorandum of understanding signed between the two countries. This will make India the only major power China has not solved its border problem. Moreover, there are no indications that China is ready to do so, as it refuses to recognize McMahon Line and intends to expand its territory.

A message from China says it will not compromise and border talks will not get you anywhere unless India is willing to accept China’s demands. Therefore, India-China tensions on the border are expected to remain stable.

Former Chinese ambassador to China Gautam Bambawale is not familiar with the new rules. “Nothing is changing. If it was intended to send a message to India, it would have collapsed. After all, all countries are talking about defending their borders and their sovereignty. China is doing the same, and so is India.”

“What is worrying is the introduction of troops and soldiers at our borders and attacks, not border control.” Ambassador Bambawale acknowledges that the dispute over the India-China border is complex and the exchange of territories is difficult on both sides.

Aftermath Of A Bloodbath: What The Forensics Team Got From Trampled Crime Scene In Lakhimpur Kheri

Aftermath Of A Bloodbath: What The Forensics Team Got From Trampled Crime Scene In Lakhimpur Kheri

A burnt jeep and an SUV, both signs of trouble-free power in the heart of the Indians – are on the side of the road as evidence of the deaths of eight people, including four farmers on October 3.

The road in Tikonia in the Nighasan region of Lakhimpur Kheri leads to the border with Nepal and along the way is the house of BJP MP and Union Minister Ajay Kumar Mishra. Ashish’s son, better known as Monu bhaiya, is accused of driving one of the cars cut off by four farmers who were part of a peaceful protest.

Angry protesters set fire to two of the horsemen and attacked, killing three of the occupants. The eighth person, Raman Kashyap, who died was a local journalist at work.

On the evening of October 6, the third day after the incident, police decided to go to the scene to look for evidence. The bloodstains were washed away by the rain. And the fingerprints were removed from the fire. Broken glass, cold shoes, torn jeans, and scrap metal were some of the items found.

“We also found two cartridges,” said Vindiaram Divakar, a crime officer, as he exited the jeep, Thar. This gives hope to farmers’ allegations that they were shot by the vehicle.

How long did it take them to visit this place? Ideally, a crime scene should be disinfected immediately and publicized without restrictions. This time, the tent was pitched by locals and a large number of people who visited the site.
Divakar said they could not arrive early as it was just raining occasionally in the area.

“It could have been violated by anyone. Powerful individuals are involved,” said Iqbal Singh, a rancher, and nearby inhabitant..

Sumit Kumar Pandey, a fingerprint expert on the crime investigation team at the scene, told Outlook that they did not find fingerprints on the vehicles. “Everything is burnt. No fingerprints are available,” he said. Even blood stains flooded the rain on October 4 and 5. “There is more evidence we can find,” Pandey said.

He requested that a metal detector be sent from headquarters because there were pieces of burnt garbage that needed to be recovered. “We will have to come again tomorrow for this,” he said as the group left, leaving the area unsafe and exposed.

New Delhi: Twitter unlocks Congress leader Rahul Gandhi’s handle on Saturday, a week after his account was suspended, but not before the opposition party accused him of bias.

Gandhi’s account was suspended last week after he posted on Twitter pictures of the family of a nine-year-old rape and murder victim in northwestern Delhi. Twitter sees itself as violating its rules.

Sources said the Twitter accounts of some of the group’s leaders who shared similar photos were restored.

“Rahul Gandhi’s Twitter account has been reopened,” a party official said, adding that other leaders’ accounts had also been restored.

A Twitter spokesman said that as part of the appeal process, Rahul Gandhi had sent a copy of the official letter of approval/authorization for the use of the image reported through the Indian complaint channel.

“We have reviewed our law enforcement measures based on the consent of the people in the photo. The tweet is now being held in India and the account (of Congress leader Rahul Gandhi) has been revoked,” a Twitter spokesman said.

The mother of the Delhi victim said she could not object to any tweets or photos. The girl’s family has distanced themselves from the conflict.

Rohan Gupta, President of the Social Media Department of Congress, also confirmed that Twitter had opened all accounts linked to Congress, including Rahul Gandhi, on Saturday morning, adding that this was a victory for the Indian people. The group also said it had not deleted its Twitter account.

The former Congress leader was outraged on Friday accusing Twitter of “interfering in the national political process” and said closing his hand was tantamount to “attacking the country’s democratic structure”.

Gandhi, in a statement he sent via video on YouTube entitled “The Dangerous Game of Twitter”, said it was not a neutral and purposeful process and that he was “indebted to the government”.

On Twitter, Gandhi said the company was depriving millions of fans of their rights, which was wrong.

A Delhi court has postponed the bail hearing of former JNU student leader Umar Khalid until August 20.

Khalid was arrested last year under a strict anti-violence law in northeastern Delhi.

On the last day of the hearing, Delhi police responded to the bail application, saying the bail application was unreliable.

The Delhi police response stated that “the application by the applicant / Omar Khalid is invalid as it will be disclosed and testified before the Court in connection with the case and therefore the prosecutor does not want to elaborate on the application”.

Khalid was arrested on September 13, 2020, in connection with a riot in the northeast of Delhi under investigation by Special Cell, which opened cases under the Anti-Terrorism Act (UAPA).

Delhi police said the current case involved a major conspiracy that was recorded on 06/03/20. A total of 21 suspects have been arrested in the case so far, 18 of them in the ongoing Criminal Procedure Code (CRPC).

In addition to Umar Khalid, other students Natasha Narwal and Devangana Kalita from JNU, members of the coordinating committee Jamia Safoora Zargar, Asif Iqbal Tanha of Jamia, former Aam Aadmi group adviser Tahir Hussain, and many others were also arrested at UAPA.

The Delhi High Court in its latest decision granted Asif, Devangna, and Natasha Narwal bail in the same case. The Delhi Supreme Court has made very strong comments on the prosecution in this matter. Delhi police later sent the Supreme Court to challenge the order.

More than 750 cases have been reported in the north-eastern Delhi area, in which at least 53 people have been killed and others injured. To date, more than 250 cases have been filed in connection with the violence, in which a number of defendants have been charged.

West Bengal: Incessant rainfall throws normal life out of gear; see pics-

Uninterrupted rainfall was observed in West Bengal on Friday, particularly in South Bengal, due to strong low pressure in Bangladesh and neighboring West Bengal. In several parts of southern Bengal, including Calcutta, the situation was flooded.

According to the Kolkata Municipal Company (KMC), all the locked gates of the Ganges River were opened and all pumping stations were installed to restore the flooded Kolkata.
Not only Calcutta, but the heavy rains seen in Hooghly, Bankura, Purulia, East, and West Burdwan also led to the collapse of mud walls that claimed the lives of many people across the country.

The more remote areas of West Midnapore were closed as the Silabati and Para rivers overflowed and several mud houses were also removed.

As the water took a while to recede, traffic congestion subsided as the State’s main roads in Bangkura, Jargram, and West Midnapore were completely melted.

Trains on the east and south-east railways had to be rebuilt, as trains also fell underwater due to heavy rains at night.
At a time when people are experiencing hardships as a result of natural disasters, political leaders have not missed an opportunity to insult one another.

Opposition leader Suvendu Adhikari has criticized the Kolkata Municipal Company for failing to improve the city’s sanitation system.

“Mamata Banerjee has been considering converting Kolkata to London, but the sewerage system is still in place so that water can accumulate even in the absence of heavy rainfall,” Sovendu said.

Responding to Suvendu’s claim, KMC President Firhad Hakim assured that in the future Calcutta and surrounding areas would not be flooded.
