Gajwel: The police chief, in a statement, requested people to be cautious while posting any content on social media.

“A malicious social media post has led to mindless violence in Bangalore (Bengaluru) city resulting in loss of life and properties. Public are requested not to post/circulate any inappropriate content in social media which is likely to adversely affect public order and peace in the society,” the DGP said.

He said Telangana Police were closely watching round the clock for anti-social elements circulating such malicious content in social media.

“All the SHOs and other senior Officers have been instructed to register specific cases in every such instance and initiate strong and strict action against such offenders without fail. I request the public to partner with police to maintain the highest standards of safety and security in Telangana,” he added.

Anjani Kumar has also urged people to be very cautious before posting anything on social media. “Last night there was violence in Bangalore because of such a social media post. We will take very firm legal action for any irresponsible post. We cannot allow under any circumstances our city to get a bad name,” he tweeted.

A Facebook message posted allegedly by a relative of a Congress MLA triggered violent protest in Bengaluru on Tuesday night.

Three people were killed in the police firing and 60 police personnel were injured in the violent incident of stone pelting and attacks by rioters.

Earlier, Telangana Industries Minister K. T. Rama Rao said that social media cannot turn into an instrument for anti-social behaviour.

The minister took to Twitter to share his thoughts after violence in Bengaluru.

“Goes to show you how dangerous spreading fake news in social media can be…,” tweeted Rama Rao, who is son of Chief Minister K. Chandrashekhar Rao.

Rama Rao, who is also the President of Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS), requested all social media users to be responsible. He urged them not to indulge in propaganda and stop spreading fake news.

PIL in SC seeking CBI probe in Hathras gang-rape and murder

Published

By

Supreme Court

A PIL was filed in the Supreme Court on Wednesday seeking a CBI probe or SIT investigation under a sitting or former Supreme Court or High Court judge in the gruesome gang-rape and murder of a 19-year-old Dalit woman in Uttar Pradesh’s Hathras district.

The PIL has been filed by social activist Satyama Dubey and advocates Vishal Thakre and Rudra Pratap Yadav. The petitioners urged the apex court to pass appropriate order for a fair investigation – either by the CBI or the SIT under a sitting or retired judge of Supreme Court or High Court – and transfer the case to Delhi, as Uttar Pradesh authorities had failed to take certain actions against the accused.

The plea said the victim was first raped and then brutally assaulted, and according to a medical report, her tongue was chopped and her neck and back bones broken by the accused, who belonged to an upper caste. The victim succumbed to her injuries at Safdarjung hospital in Delhi.

The petitioner said on September 14, the accused persons raped and brutally assaulted the victim when she was in the fields to collect fodder for her cattle.

It also said that the police have said the victim’s cremation was being carried out as per the wishes of the family, which was not true, and the police personnel set fire to the body of the deceased, even as media persons were banned, as per the information received, said the plea.

The plea claimed the police did not perform their duties towards the victim, and were, instead, trying to shield the accused persons. “Because there was no arrest in this matter, the accused persons are moving freely and they have no fear at all… the family of the victim has been victimised by the upper caste persons and no action has been done by the authorities/police officials,” said the plea.

The plea has also cited the statement of the victim’s older brother, saying: “… I came to know about my sister being targeted by these men only when she recorded her statement. They told her if she didn’t submit to their ‘demands’, they would shoot her brother dead.”

The brother also added that the family was threatened when the victim was in hospital.

“In wake of the pandemic, the water bill waiver scheme of the Delhi Jal Board has been further extended by three months and will now end
on December 31,” DJB Vice Chairman, Raghav Chadha, said in a tweet.

Director (Revenue) Paras Ram stated in a circular that the Chairperson Delhi Jal Board through an order dated September 23 has approved
extension of the scheme up to December 31.

The scheme involves waiver of 100 per cent Late Payment Surcharge (LPSC) amount and slab wise waiver on accumulated arrears depending on
categorization for House Tax in respect of all domestic (individual and bulk) and 100 per cent LPSC waiver for commercial consumers.

All revenue officers should give wide publicity to the scheme and ensure necessary action for raising bills as per scheme and wherever
possible, it added. The deadline has been extended several times before.

In August last year, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had announced a one-time water arrear waiver for over 13 lakh defaulting
consumers with functional meters in a bid to make consumers pay their pending bills.

The scheme will cover the consumers whose bills were pending till March 31, 2019. Under the scheme, 100 percent Late Payment Surcharge
(LPSC) waiver will be given to all the domestic as well as commercial consumers.

The rebate in principal amount will be on the basis of category of colonies. In Delhi, colonies are graded from categories A to H by the
municipal corporations for the purpose of imposing house tax. The E, F, G and H category areas will be completely exempted from paying the
pending bills till March 31, 2019.

A 75 percent exemption will be given to the consumers residing in D category areas. People living in C category will receive 50 percent
exemption while A and B category areas will be given exemption up to 25 percent on the water bills.

Consumers who will install the meter after the commencement of the scheme are required to submit an application intimating their Name,
Address, and document of meter installed to the respective Zonal Revenue Office. The form may be dropped in the “Meter Installation
Intimation Box” placed at the ZRO offices.
