Workload on Supreme Court judges crushing: Judge


Workload on Supreme Court judges crushing: Judge

New Delhi: Justice Rohinton Fali Nariman, who gave up his roaring practice as a lawyer in July 2014 to become directly a Supreme Court judge, rued in open court on Friday on the “crushing” burden of cases on the SC judges. Fifth in the hierarchy, he opened up when a lawyer pressed for urgent listing of a case: “The burden on us is crushing. Please go before the Vacation Bench.” He also turned down mentioning in some other cses. When another lawyer pressed for listing the matter that has been de-listed, Justice Nariman quipped: “Sorry. We have no control over listing and de-listing.”

As on May 1, the number of cases pending before the apex court was 58,168. Of these, 38,856 are the admission matters and 21,312 regular hearing matters.

Ramdev files plaint against Sita­ram Yechury


Ramdev files plaint against Sita­ram Yechury

Dehradun: Yoga guru Ramdev on Saturday lodged a complaint against CPI(M) general secy Sita­ram Yechury in Haridwar for allegedly linking Hinduism with violence. Ramdev said by linking Hinduism with violence, Yechury has hurt Hindu sentiments across India, SSP Haridwar Janmaijai Khanduri told PTI. “It is an attempt by Yechury to defame the religion which must be condemned,” Ramdev said.

An FIR was registered in the case, the SSP said. Referring to claims by BJP leaders, including PM Modi, Hindus cannot indulge in violence, Yechury had on Friday said Hindu mythological books like the Ramayana and Mahabharata were replete with instances of violence.




Guidelines sought to curtain religious, casteist, fake statement during polls


Guidelines sought to curtain religious, casteist, fake statement during polls

New Delhi: A Delhi lawyer has moved the apex court to frame guidelines to curtail the religious, casteist and fake statements during the polls. In a writ petition, advocate Ashwini Kumar Upadhyay also sought a declaration under Article 32 of the Constitution to empower the EC to refer to the investigating agencies the complaints against the contesting candidates and political office-bearers for seeking votes on the basis of religion, race, caste, community or language. He also sought to empower the EC to reject nominations and de-register the political parties that seek votes on the basis of religion, race, caste, community or language.

He pointed out how various governments remained mum on the EC’s repeated pleas to amend the Representation of People Act to curtail the misuse of caste and religion for electoral gains. Most serious are the hate speeches and yet the govt has not taken steps to implement the 267th report of the Law Commission on the hate speeches. The petitioner has cited the speech of BSP chief Mayawati appealing to the Muslims to vote for the candidates of the SP-BSP-RLD alliance and not to Congress also, as Rahul Gandhi has repeatedly levelled shameless charge of a thief (chor) on PM Modi.

In this regard, he prayed to declare that misquoting the judicial orders and directions by the contesting candidates and political office-bearers for electoral gains as a “corrupt practice.” In another writ petition, Upadhyay has sought declaration any paid news or fake news and political ads during the last 48 hours be declared as a corrupt practice.

On Wednesday, the accused were interrogated and confronted with the discrepancies in their statements. During inquiry, it was revealed that the childhood lovers had hatched the conspiracy to eliminate Pooja in order to re-unite, he added. Padma and Rahul had studied together in Sindri Dhanbad, Jharkhand from KG to class 12 and were very close friends. Thereafter, they parted ways to pursue higher education and didn’t keep in touch, the DCP said.

In April 2015, Padma was added to a WhatsApp group of their school of which Rahul was also a member. She contacted him and with the passage of time, their love rekindled and they entered into a relationship. Their relationship hit a brick wall when their families did not agree to their marriage, he said.

They tried to persuade their families to no avail. In January 2017, Rahul’s marriage was fixed with Pooja, who also belonged to Sindri, Jharkhand, he added. Rahul told Pooja about their relationship with the hope that she would refuse to get married to him but she didn’t. He married her on April 23, 2017.

Meanwhile, Rahul and Padma continued their relationship and later they hatched a plan to kill Pooja, the officer said. On the day of the killing, Padma went to meet Pooja at her house in Kishangarh as per plan. They had breakfast together, but Padma had to wait to execute the plan as the domestic help was still present there, he said. Later, Padma overpowered Pooja and hit her head on the ground several times and smothered her. Then, she kept a letter close to the body to mislead the police. In the evening, she told Rahul on phone that she had murdered Pooja, police said.

Frightening videos give account of massive destruction by Cyclone Fani in Odisha, watch

Cyclone Fani, one of the strongest storms to batter the Indian subcontinent in decades, entered West Bengal post-midnight on Saturday, hours after making landfall and causing havoc in Odisha on Friday. The cyclonic story crossed Kharagpur and is likely to continue further in North-East direction with a wind speed of 90 km/hour.

In Odisha, the cyclone led to sights of massive destruction- trees were uprooted, buildings were damaged, and few also lost their lives. Even though the cyclone has crossed Odisha now, some scary videos of its destruction in Odisha are doing rounds on social media.

In one video, a long crane near an under-construction building falls on the ground due to the speedy winds. At first, the crane tilts downwards and tries to maintain its balance, but it eventually falls on the ground unable to cope up with strong winds caused by cyclone Fani. Have a look.

Cyclone Fani makes landfall in Puri, heavy rains batter coastal belt


Cyclone Fani makes landfall in Puri, heavy rains batter coastal belt

Bhubaneswar: Extremely severe cyclonic storm ‘Fani’ made a landfall in Puri on Odisha coast Friday morning, triggering heavy rainfall coupled with high velocity winds with speed of 175 kmph in vast areas.

Large areas in the seaside pilgrim town of Puri and other places were submerged with water as heavy rains battered the entire coastal belt of the state. Several trees were uprooted and thatched structures destroyed at some places including Bhubaneswar. “The cyclone has entered the Odisha coast at Puri around 8 am and it will take around three hours for the entire landfall process to be completed,” Director of Regional Meteorological Centre, Bhubaneswar, H R Biswas said.

The cyclonic system, whose eye is around 28 km, is moving at around 30 kmph, Biswas said, adding the process of landfall is expected to be complete around 11 AM. Puri and neighbouring areas are experiencing wind with a speed of 175 kilometres per hour which may go up to 200 kmph. Under the impact of the cyclone, high velocity wind is sweeping across several coastal districts like Ganjam, Puri, Khurda and Gajapati, Special Relief Commissioner (SRC) B P Sethi said.

Nearly 11 lakh people have been evacuated from vulnerable and low-lying areas of at least 11 coastal district, he said, adding the evacuees have been accommodated in over 4,000 shelters, including 880 specially designed cyclone centres. No casualty has so far been reported from any part of the state, Sethi said adding the government is fully prepared to deal with any eventuality. After the landfall, the system is passing through Khurda, Cuttack, Jajpur, Bhadrak and Balasore before entering West Bengal, Sethi said, adding the state capital of Bhubaneswar is likely to be hit by high velocity wind of around 140 kmph.  A cyclone making a landfall implies that the first arm of the cyclone has reached the land.
