Police joint team arrested Swami Om over theft charges

Swami-Om

NEW DELHI, August 10: Controversial so-called godman Swami Om somehow managed to remain in limelight but not for any good reason as all know.

The self-styled godman was arrested on Wednesday in a case filed by his brother who had accused Swami Om of stealing bicycles along with some documents from his shop nine years ago, police said.

Vinodanand Jha, aka Swami Om, was declared a proclaimed offender by the Saket Court in Delhi last year in the case, the police said.

In November 2008, a FIR was filed at Lodhi Colony police station against him following a complaint by his younger brother Pramod Jha.

Pramod had accused him of breaking the lock of his bicycle shop in Lodhi Colony along with three men and stealing 11 bicycles, expensive spare parts, sale deed of the house and important documents, a police officer said.

Last year, a non-bailable warrant was issued against him by the Saket court which subsequently declared him a proclaimed offender in the case, the officer said.

The godman was taking a shelter in a house in northeast Delhi’s Bhajanpura and was nabbed by a joint team of Lodhi Colony police station and Inter-State Cell of Crime Branch, the officer added.

Akshay’s ‘Gold Trailer’ shows one man’s struggle to make India proud

Gold poster Akshay Kumar

New Delhi, June 25: After releasing some intriguing posters, the makers of Akshay Kumar starrer ‘Gold’ have finally dropped the official trailer of the upcoming film on Monday.

Gold is a story of one man’s dream, dedication and struggle. And, he thus makes India proud.

The trailer opens with a voice-over announcing the words, “Gold, British India,” and an intense-looking Akshay giving ‘the stare’ to the British flag. What transpires over a couple of minutes in the trailer is a mix of patriotism and sports, just everything one could have expected from Khiladi Kumar.

Akshay, perhaps for the first time, will be seen as a Bengali in the film and the trailer gives a peek into that persona.

Naagin star Mouni Roy appears for merely five seconds in the trailer chastising Akshay in Bengali. She plays the actor’s wife in Gold. Akshay then proceeds to deliver a monologue laced with an almost overbearing love for the country.

The over two-minute long trailer also featured Kunal Kapoor, Amit Sadh, Vineet Kumar Singh and Sunny Kaushal, each of them a hockey player with a passion to play the game.

The film is about India’s first Olympic medal win as a free nation in 1948 at the 14th Olympic Games at London. It will release on Independence Day in 2018.

Post Gold, Akshay will be seen in Kesari which is again a period film based on the Battle of Saragarhi.
