Ayodhya Babri Masji Supreme Court

Bengaluru, Nov 9 : Security has been tightened across the city and schools and colleges would remain shut on Saturday in view of the Supreme Court’s verdict on the Babri Masjid-Ram Janmabhoomi title dispute case in Ayodhya, a top police officer said on Friday.

“About 15,000 policemen and women will be deployed by Saturday morning in and around the city to maintain law and order and prevent any untoward incident,” Bengaluru Police Commissioner Bhaskar Rao told reporters here.

The Karnataka government has declared holiday for all schools and colleges across the city on Saturday.

“Schools and colleges will remain closed on Saturday as a precautionary measure to ensure safety and security of the students and their faculty,” state Education Minister Suresh Kumar said.

Ban order under section 144 of the CrPC (Criminal Procedure Code) will be in force from 7.00 a.m. till midnight on Saturday to prevent assembling of more than 5 persons in public places.

“All liquor shops across the city will remain shut on Saturday. Social media will be monitored through the day to check and block provocative messages or pictures and videos from being circulated under the cyber laws as they cause trouble,” Rao asserted.

In view of the sensitivity of the decades-old dispute and the likely fallout of the verdict by a five-judge constitutional bench, 50 platoons of the Karnataka State Reserve Police (KSRP), 30 platoons of the City Armed Police (CAR) and 20 platoons of home guards will be deployed in sensitive areas, densely-populated localities and VIP zones in the tech hub.

“Mobile patrolling will be held across the city to maintain law and order and round up mischief mongers and trouble-makers,” Rao noted.

The police are also deploying bomb-detection and dog squads to sniff out any explosive material in sensitive areas of the city.

“All the officers and their deputies have been told to report for duty by 7 a.m. on Saturday to supervise security arrangements and take safety measures in all areas,” added Rao.

Rao also cautioned all the news channels against airing footage of the 16th century mosque and its demolition on December 6, 1992 and in its aftermath.

In view of the ban order, processions, demonstrations and protests will not be allowed across the city by the people, groups, organisations and political parties.

High alert has also been sounded across the southern state, with ban order in cities and towns in all the remaining 28 districts.

“Additional forces have been deployed in all cities and towns across the state to maintain law and order and prevent any trouble,” Additional Director General of Police (ADGP) A.K. Pandey said.

To instil confidence in the people and warn anti-social elements from taking law into their hands, flag marches will be conducted in cities and towns across the state.

“Phone calls, including those made through Whatsapp and video, messages and postings on Facebook, Twitter and all other social media platforms will be monitored to block those that may provoke or cause trouble for the people,” added Pandey.

New Delhi, July 14: Four years back, a young man changed his sex. Three years on, she fell in love with a man. Both decided to marry. However, in a year tragedy struck and husband Gyanendra Shukla slit his wife’s throat and left her to die.

The brutal attack took place in South Delhi’s Amar Colony. Shukla expected his wife not to survive when he fled leaving her in a pool of blood.

The woman, not only survived but gathered enough strength to made a video call to her father and tell him about the gruesome attack that took place on July 11.

“The father made a PCR call from Gurugram, while the profusely bleeding wife dragged herself to the door and started knocking with a hammer to raise an alarm and get someone’s help because her vocal chords were slashed,” said DCP South East Delhi R.P. Meena. Her neighbours shifted her to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS).

Shukla was arrested the same day. He hails from Uttar Pradesh’s Mahoba district.

His interrogation revealed that he got married on March 13, 2019. His family members were against the marriage. Soon after marriage the relationship turned sour as he could not accept the outgoing nature of his wife.

He lost confidence in the relationship and started suspecting his wife at every turn. He checked her messages and did not approve of her partying.

The couple initially stayed with the wife’s family but the father-in-law asked them to leave as the woman’s family could not take the daily dose of quarrel. The couple shifted to Lajpat Nagar-IV area and moved into a rented accommodation. Their disputes were endless and converted into routine quarrels.

Soon the couple started staying separately. The husband shifted to Kotla Mubarakpur while the wife remained in the double storey building in Amar Colony.

On Saturday, he decided to kill her and end it once and for all. Shukla has been booked for attempt to murder.

Delhi Gymkhana Club turned from ‘vyayamshala’ to ‘madhushala’: Govt

Delhi Gymkhana Club

New Delhi, Jul 14 : The Central government has filed an appeal challenging the National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT) order, which allowed it to appoint two members (Central government nominees) to the Board (General Committee) of the Delhi Gymkhana Club (DGC), instead of appointing an administrator to manage its affairs.

In an appeal before the National Company Law Appellate Tribunal (NCLAT), the Centre said that the NCLT has erred in not granting effective safeguards and an efficacious remedy.

“While allotting membership of the Club, the company has been treated like a ‘Riyaasat’ (kingdom) of the persons, especially the GC members, by misusing MoA and the AoA of the company. It is not out of place to submit here that over the years, the activities of the Club have been turned over from a ‘vyayamshala’ to a ‘madhushala’ and the functioning of the General Committee is like ‘siyasat’,” the Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA) said in the plea in the NCLAT.

The MCA argued that the violations are of extremely serious and grave nature, which indicates the GC members have been acting autocratically to the benefit of a few chosen members of the club, at the expense of the general public.

“It has to be borne in mind that the Board of companies function on majority decisions, here by permitting appointment of only two nominees, the Tribunal has provided inadequate relief and cosmetic representation on the Board will not cure mismanagement and the gravity of the rot that has set deep in the management of DGC,” it contended.

The plea said that the continuing management of affairs by successive GCs, “have pervasively twisted the objects of the company, to benefit a select few, who managed to remain in control of the DGC, through an unauthorised and complicated hereditary succession mechanism”.

“The admission process can only be described as ‘parivaar-vaad’. The general public applicants are being made to wait for decades (in some cases since 1972) for membership of the club, all the while (the club) having unauthorisedly collecting lakhs of rupees in the form of registration fees, process fees, enhanced registration fees etc, over and above the entrance fee,” it said.

The plea contended that the NCLT accepted most of MCA’s submission and also agreed with its allegations, yet it refused to grant interim relief sought.

“Till quite recently the unauthorisedly collected fee was not even refunded to the unsuccessful or waitlisted applicants. These nefarious activities by the GC of DGC are being carried out on prime land of 27.03 acres in New Delhi, all the while paying a miniscule amount of rent on the perpetual lease from the Ministry of Urban Affairs,” contended the plea.

In its June 27 order, the NCLT declined to suspend the club’s General Committee and also the appointment of an administrator as sought by the Centre, but instead directed it to appoint two of its nominees in the GC to monitor the affairs of the club, along with other GC members and give suggestions.

The ministry had moved the NCLT asking for replacement of the directors of the club with government nominees to run the affairs of the company, and in the interim relief, asked for suspension of the GC and for appointment of an administrator until the final order is granted.
