Addressing the public along with Lt. Governor Anil Baijal, Kejriwal said all borders of Delhi with Harayan and Uttar Pradesh will be sealed, but essential items from neighboring states, such as food items like vegetables, milk etc. will keep coming.

“Lockdown in Delhi from Monday 6 a.m. to March 31 midnight. The borders will be sealed and only essential items will be allowed,” he said.

All flights — domestic and international, inter-state buses, trains and metros will be suspended too, he said.

“The Covid-19 pandemic has caused an extraordinary situation and calls for extraordinary measures,” sais Kejriwal as he shared announcements towards containing the spread of the virus.

Delhi has 27 coronavirus cases, he said, of which 21 are from people coming from abroad. Only six people have received the virus, Kejriwal said adding controlling the virus at this stage will be helpful.

He said Delhi is yet to enter the community transmission stage and to prevent the outbreak, he added he is putting Delhi under the lockdown.

Kejriwal said that certain exceptions have been made to ensure essential items are available for purchase and basic services continue to operate.

No public transport services, including operation of private buses, taxis, autorickshaw, rickshaws and e-rickshaws shall be permitted, he said.

“Only DTC buses shall operate at not more than 25 per cent capacity to cater personal engaged in essential services.”

The Delhi government also issued an order, saying all shops, commercial establishments, factories, workshops, offices, warehouses, weekly bazaars, etc shall be closed in the city during the lockdown.

“The motorable and unmotorable borders of Delhi with neighbouring states of Delhi and Haryana shall be sealed. All domestic and international flights coming to Delhi will be suspended,” it said.

It says all construction and religious activities are also barred during the period.

Kejriwal says people are requested to stay indoors and come out only for basic services within the vicinity of their residence while strictly following the social distancing guidelines.

Government offices dealing with electricity and water issues, law and order, sanitation, as well as print and electronic media offices among others will stay open, he said.

All the restaurants have been ordered shut, and only takeaways and home deliveries will be permitted, Kejriwal said.

During the lockdown, dairies, grocery shops, chemists and petrol pumps will remain open.

Also, all religious places will be shut during lockdown.

Kejriwal said no certificate will be required from the people if they move during the lockdown.

“No certificate will be required to move across the city. Gathering of five or more people will be barred. All the private establishment will be shut, while the employees should be paid,” he said.

On the hoarding of masks and sanitizers, he said it is not just against the law but humanity.

“We did 327 raids and 437 cases have been filed, so far. We will be continuing raiding for hoarding,” he said.

Kejriwal said taking preventive steps at this stage will be helpful.


Man tries to kill wife who got sex change to get married

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




Gyanendra Shukla

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.
