Hyderabad Rape and Murder

Hyderabad, Nov 29 : The family of a woman veterinarian, gangraped and murdered on the outskirts of Hyderabad, alleged that Cyberabad Police did not respond properly to their complaint and that quick response could have saved her.

The victim’s father said though they approached the police around 11 p.m. on Wednesday, they wasted lot of time over jurisdiction issue and asking various questions. He said some constables were sent only at 3 a.m.

The parents also found fault with the police for asking them inappropriate questions about their daughter like whether she had any affair.

The woman (26) was gangraped and killed near Outer Ring Road (ORR) at Shamshabad on the outskirts of Hyderabad on Wednesday night. Her charred body was found the next day near Shadnagar, about 25 km from ORR.

She had called her younger sister around 9.30 p.m. to inform her that her scooty’s tyre was punctured and that someone had taken it for repair. She also said that she is scared as it was dark and there are truck drivers near her. The sister had advised her to come out on ORR and be at the nearby toll plaza.

When the sister called her back after some time, her mobile was switched off. THe victim’s father said when they approached Shamshabad police station, he was informed that the area came under the jurisdiction of another police station.

Later, police checked the CCTV footage, which showed Priyanka parking her two-wheeler near toll plaza before going to Gachibowli to visit a dermatologist. However, there was no footage of her return to the same place to pick up her vehicle.

“They told us that your daughter did not come here. They also asked me to contact the clinic where she had gone in the evening and check whether she had come there. It was already 11 p.m. and the clinic was closed,” said the victim’s father.

It was only around 3 a.m. that some police constables went to Thondupally toll plaza along with the victim’s family members but found nothing.

THe victim’s sister said when she spoke to her, she did not realize that there is danger to her. “She appeared normal though she also told me that she was scared. She wanted me to speak to her for some time,” she said.

Delhi Pollution Air Quality

New Delhi: The national capital’s air quality on Thursday turned to the ‘severe’ category, with the overall air quality index (AQI) of Delhi recorded at 407.

According to the Centre-run System of Air Quality and Weather Forecasting (SAFAR), Delhi’s overall AQIwas recorded at 9 a.m. at 407, counted under the ‘severe’ category.

As per SAFAR, the AQI from 0-50 is considered ‘safe’. Between 51-100 ‘satisfactory’, between 101-200 is ‘moderate’ and 201-300 is ‘poor’, while 301-400 is ‘very poor’ and 401-500 is in the ‘severe’ category.

SAFAR has advised people to avoid all physical activity outdoors. “Give a miss to walk today. If the room has windows, close them. If the air conditioner provides a fresh air intake option, close it. Keep the room clean – don’t vacuum. Do wet mopping frequently,” it said.

It also advised people to stop any activity level if experience any unusual coughing, chest discomfort, wheezing, breathing difficulty, or fatigue and consult a doctor.

“Masks known as N-95 or P-100 respirators may only help if you go out. Do not rely on dust masks for protection,” it added.

The AQI of the National Capital Region was also high with Ghaziabad (470), Noida and Greater Noida (422), Faridabad (398) having a similar experience.

The city had witnessed drastic improvement in the air quality in the last week of November as the AQI was recorded in double digits at the ‘satisfactory’ category, after being seeing few of the worst air quality days the same month.

The air in the national capital was so toxic after Diwali that the Environmental Pollution (Prevention and Control) Authority (EPCA) had declared a public health emergency in the Delhi-NCR and had advised people, especially children and the aged, to limit their exposure to the environment.

Man eater leopard amreli

Amreli (Gujarat), Dec 11 : A suspected ‘man-eater’ leopard was shot dead on Wednesday evening by forest department personnel near Bagasara village in Amreli district of Gujarat, officials said.

A senior official claimed the big cat had killed at least ten people in the nearby areas and 14 to 15 people in the entire region.

The big cat was lurking behind eucalyptus plantation near a cow shed when it was shot dead by a member of the team of forest guards, they said.

The Amreli region had seen a sharp rise in attacks by leopards in the last few months.

“We shot dead the leopard near Bagasara village at 7 pm on Wednesday. We were hunting for it as it had turned into a man-eater. We are sure that it was the same leopard we were looking for. Other leopards were rescued and shifted out of the area,” said Conservator of Forest (Rajkot), Ashwin Parmar.

Amreli district collector Aayush Oak said the leopard was spotted in a camera trap. “It was a seven-year-old male leopard,” he said.

Oak said the Forest department first tried to capture the big cat, but it attacked the personnel, following which it was shot dead.

“Forest department will analyse the pug marks to ascertain involvement of the killed leopard in recent human deaths. But it is certainly suspected to have killed human beings. If required, the forest department will continue its operation,” he said when asked whether the forest personnel killed the same leopard they were looking for.

Meanwhile, Parmar said a huge team of forest personnel was deployed to either trap or kill the leopard in view of deaths of many people in feline attacks in the region.

“We scanned CCTV footage videos as well as pug marks to ensure that we shoot down the man-eater. We will also get an independent analysis done to find remains of human beings, if any, from the intestine and stomach of the dead leopard,” he said.

Parmar said the leopard had killed at least 10 people in nearby areas. “In all, it might have killed 14-15 people in the entire region,” he added.

In its bid to identify the “man-eater leopard”, the Forest department had formed a team of 150 trained personnel and set up 30 cages at different locations to trap and rescue other leopards from the area.

At least 40 leopards have already been caged in Amreli and neighbouring Junagadh districts.

The state government had told the Legislative Assembly on Tuesday that the total 14 people were killed while 71 others were injured in as many as 80 attacks by leopards in Junagadh and Amreli districts during the last two years, a significant rise than the previous year.

Recently, two persons were killed in a leopard attack on October 25 and December 5 in Munjiyasar village in Bagasara taluka of Amreli district.

A child was mauled to death by the big cat in Rafala village on November 17 while a 60-year-old man was killed in Visavadar taluka in the same district in September.
