New Delhi, April 11 (IANS) Tainted Jammu and Kashmir police officer Davinder Singh was remanded to judicial custody till May 6 by Special Judge Ajay Kumar Jain of Delhi’s Patiala House Court on Friday after expiry of his 30-day police interrogation.

He was nabbed from the Jammu-Srinagar National Highway on January 11 while ferrying two militants — Naveed Babu alias Babar Azam and his associate Asif Ahmad — and a civilian.

The Delhi Police’s special cell had brought him to Delhi from J&K’s Hira Nagar Jail, earlier this month, for interrogation in another case.

Three other accused — Javed Iqbal, Syed Naveed Mushtaq and Imran Shafi Mir — have also been remanded to judicial custody.

The court had earlier remanded Mushtaq, a commander of Hizbul Mujahiddeen in the Shopian district, and others to the police custody after the city police claimed that they were planning terror attacks in the national capital and other parts of the country.

According to the police, Mushtaq used to chat with co-accused and militants through various internet platforms. The Delhi Police had registered an FIR under Section 120B (criminal conspiracy) of the Indian penal Code (IPC).

It also mentioned D Company and Chhota Shakeel. Davinder Singh was taken into custody under this FIR, although his name is not mentioned in it.

Varavara Rao’s family appeals to government to save his life

Varavara Rao

Hyderabad, July 12 : Family members of Telugu poet and writer Varavara Rao, who is currently lodged in Navi Mumbai’s Taloja jail in the Bhima Koregaon case, on Sunday appealed to the government for his immediate release in view of his deteriorating health.

Rao’s wife P. Hemalatha and their three daughters urged the government to save his life by shifting him to a hospital or allow them to provide him with immediate medical care.

We want to remind the government that it has no right to deny the right to life of any person, much less an undertrial prisoner,” they said.

His family members said they were very much worried about his deteriorating health. They said his health condition had been scary for over six weeks, ever since he was shifted in an unconscious state to JJ Hospital on May 28.

“Even as he was discharged from the hospital and sent back to jail three days later, there has been no improvement in his health and he is still in need of emergency healthcare,” Hemalatha said.

“The immediate cause of concern now is that we are very much perturbed at the routine phone call we received from him on Saturday evening. Though the earlier two calls on June 24 and July 2 were also worrying with his weak and muffled voice, incoherent speech and abruptly jumping into Hindi. But the latest call, on July 11 is much more worrisome as he did not answer straight questions on his health and went into a kind of delirious and hallucinated talk about the funeral of his father and mother, the events that happened seven decades and four decades ago respectively,” Rao”s wife said.

She said her husband’s co-accused companion took the phone from him and informed her that he is not able to walk, go to the toilet and brush his teeth on his own.

“We were also told that he is always hallucinating that we, family members, were waiting at the jail gate to receive him as he was getting released. His co-prisoner also said he needs immediate medical care for not only physical but also neurological issues. The confusion, loss of memory and incoherence are the results of electrolyte imbalance and fall of Sodium and Potassium levels leading to brain damage. This electrolyte imbalance may be fatal also.”

Stating that Taloja Jail Hospital is not well equipped to handle this kind of serious ailment, they demanded that he be shifted to a fully equipped super specialty hospital to save his life and prevent possible brain damage and risk to life due to electrolyte imbalance.

“At the present juncture we are leaving aside all the pertinent facts like, that the case against him is fabricated; he had to spend 22 months in jail as an undertrial with the process turned into punishment; his bail petitions got rejected at least five times now and even the bail petitions with his age, ill-health and Covid vulnerability as grounds were ignored. His life is the top most concern for us right now. Our present demand is to save his life,” the family said.

Corona outbreak PPE Kits

New Delhi, July 12 : As India on Sunday recorded 8.5 lakh coronavirus cases, the testing per million crossed 8,000 figure with 62.93 per cent patients recovering from the disease, a positive sign amid pandemic.

Focussed and coordinated steps taken in tandem by the Centre along with the states and the Union Territories (UTs) through a ”whole of government” approach, bolstered by effective clinical management of COVID-19 after early detection and timely diagnosis, led to a consistent increase in the recovered cases, said the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare.

In the last 24 hours, the Ministry, however, said a total of 19,235 people were cured of COVID-19. This has resulted in the cumulative total number of recovered cases rising to 5,34,620 on Sunday.

“The recovery rate has presently improved to 62.93 per cent,” the Ministry said.

As more people are recovering due to all-round efforts, the recovered cases exceed active cases by 2,42,362, it said, adding medical attention is being provided to all the 2,92,258 active cases.

The present health infrastructure dedicated to providing medical attention to the COVID affected includes 1,370 Dedicated COVID Hospitals (DCH), 3,062 Dedicated COVID Health Centres (DCHC), and 10,334 COVID Care Centres (CCC).

For the successful operation of these facilities, the Centre has so far provided 122.36 lakh Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) kits, 223.33 lakh N95 masks, and 21,685 ventilators to various states and UTs and central institutions.

Enabling factors like removing all impediments for COVID-19 testing and facilitation of widespread testing by states and UTs continues to result in a steady rise in the samples tested every day and during the last 24 hours 2,80,151 samples have been tested, it said.

“The cumulative number of samples tested as of now is 1,15,87,153. As a result of these efforts, the testing per million for India is presently 8,396.4,” the Ministry said.

A crucial supporting factor in progressive rise in testing numbers is continuous expansion of the country-wide diagnostic lab network, which as on date comprises 850 labs in the government sector and 344 private labs, totalling 1,194 labs.

Of the total 1,194 labs, 624 are Real-Time RT-PCR based testing labs that include 388 government and 236 private. A total of 472 TrueNat based testing labs are there in the country which include 427 government and 45 private. The CBNAAT based testing labs are 98 — 35 government and 63 private.
