Bahujan Samaj Party national president Mayawati has demanded an inquiry by the Supreme Court into the death of gangster Vikas Dubey in a police encounter in Kanpur on Friday. He was the main accused in the murder of eight policemen in Kanpur.

Mayawati tweeted, saying, “The overturning of the police vehicle and the subsequent death of gangster Vikas Dubey in the ensuing encounter following his attempt to escape from the UP police custody must be investigated under the supervision of the Supreme Court.”

“The high-level inquiry is also necessary to deliver justice to the families of the 8 policemen killed in the Kanpur massacre. The inquiry must also unravel the nexus between the police and politicians and punish all those found guilty,” Mayawati added.

Kanpur SSP Dinesh Kumar has confirmed the death of Vikas Dubey in the encounter. According to him, after the vehicle overturned, Vikas Dubey tried to flee with the weapons of the policemen. When the police tried to stop him, he fired and was killed in the retaliatory fire by the police.

Mumbai: The CBI on Thursday told the Bombay High Court that it did not find any material to substantiate the allegations made by 63 moons technologies against former finance minister P Chidambaram and two others.

CBI lawyer Hiten Venegavkar told a division bench of Justices Sadhana Jadhav and N J Jamadar that the complaint filed by the firm has been forwarded to the Chief Vigilance Officer of the Department of Economic Affairs.

The court was hearing a petition filed by the Jignesh Shah-promoted company, earlier known as Financial Technologies Ltd, questioning “delayed” action by the Central Bureau of Investigation against Chidambaram and bureaucrats K P Krishnan and Ramesh Abhishek.

On February 15, 2019, 63 moons technologies filed a complaint with the CBI. It alleged that the senior Congress leader and the other two abused their official positions and caused damage to the company when the multi-crore payment default scam at National Spot Exchange Limited (NSEL) came to light.

Mr Chidambaram was finance minister, Abhishek was chairman of the Forward Markets Commission and Krishnan an additional secretary and joint secretary in the Ministry of Finance when the scam came to light in 2012-13.

The trio took “malicious and malafide” action against it, the company alleged. Advocate Venegavkar said the CBI verified the complaint, but “we have not found any material as of now to substantiate the allegations made by the petitioner”.

The CBI also said in an affidavit that the petitioner did not submit any supporting documents.

“In the absence of any supporting documents in support of the allegations and due to the technical nature of the complaint, the same has been forwarded to the Chief Vigilance Officer, Department of Economic Affairs, Ministry of Finance for expert examinations,” the affidavit said.

“It was informed in the letter dated February 25, 2020 that the matter may be reverted to CBI along with due approval of the competent authority under section 17 (A) of the Prevention of Corruption Act for taking up formal investigation,” it said.

Till then, the agency cannot conduct any probe, the affidavit added.

Senior counsel Aabad Ponda, appearing for 63 moons, argued that as the complaint alleges corruption and criminal conspiracy at high level, an inquiry must be conducted.

The hearing was adjourned for three months.

DU P K Vijayan

Two Delhi University (DU) teachers – P K Vijayan from Hindu College and Rakesh Ranjan from Shri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC) – were questioned on Friday by the National Investigating Agency (NIA) in connection with the Elgaar Parishad case.

This comes just over a fortnight after the NIA arrested a DU teacher – associate professor Hany Babu M T, who teaches English – citing his alleged involvement in the same case.

All three were involved in the Committee for the Defence and Release of G N Saibaba, a former Political Science teacher of DU convicted of having Maoist links. Their membership of the committee was also allegedly in focus during the duo’s questioning.

According to Vijayan, both of them were summoned at 10 am and were allowed to go around 8.30 pm. He said Ranjan was interrogated first, and he was made to wait until Ranjan’s questioning got over.

“My interrogation began around 4 pm; then he was made to wait. Their focus was on the Bhima Koregaon violence and my role in the Saibaba defence committee,” Vijayan said. The NIA investigators, Vijayan said, told him that their names had come up during the probe – “so they just wanted to us to clarify.”

Ranjan, who teaches Economics at SRCC, did not respond to calls and texts.

Student groups of both colleges released statements condemning the questioning.

The NIA is investigating the connection between “provocative speeches” made at an Elgaar Parishad event on December 31, 2017 and the caste violence in Bhima Koregaon in Pune the following day.
