Bijnore A TikTok user has emerged as the prime su

By

first_imgBijnore: A TikTok user has emerged as the prime suspect in three shocking murders that have taken place over the past five days in Uttar Pradesh’s Bijnore district. Thirty-year-old Ashwini Kumar is a drug addict, who uses the alias of Johnny Dada and uploads TikTok videos of himself posing as a ‘villain’. He also posts violent Facebook messages like ‘I will destroy everything’, ‘Devil is ready now’ and ‘See my havoc’. However, he has no criminal record and was known to be a harmless man, until he shot a local BJP leader’s 25-year-old son and his nephew, 26, following a dispute on September 27 in Barhapur area in Bijnore. After the cold-blooded murders, he fled the busy market waving a pistol. Also Read – Personal life needs to be respected: Cong on reports of Rahul’s visit abroad Three days later, Ashwini barged into the house of 27-year-old Nitika Sharma firing indiscriminately at her and fled from there. Nikita was a local girl, who used to work with a hotel in Dubai and had come home for her wedding in Bijnor. She was to marry a sub-inspector posted with CISF in Chennai on December 2. However, she died a day after she was shot. According to Nitika’s family, Ashwini had made advances at her in 2002, when he used to frequent her uncle’s place in Daulatabad and was spurned by her. She later got a job in Dubai and settled there. The episode was forgotten, or so they thought. Also Read – Firms staying closed 10 days a month due to recession, govt doing nothing: Priyanka Gandhi “It is likely that Ashwini was upset with the news of her wedding and wanted to settle scores,” a police official said. However, police are yet to establish motive in the other two murders he committed four days earlier. Ashwini, a graduate, comes from a humble background in Barhapur town of Bijnore. His father was a clerk in a sugarcane cooperative society in Dhampur tehsil and his elder brother works in a private company in Dehradun. According to the family, Ashwini also used to work with a private firm in Delhi, but abruptly gave it up. His family believes that his drug addiction affected his mental health. Meanwhile, additional security forces have been deployed in Bijnore and a reward of Rs 25,000 has been announced for anyone providing any information about his whereabouts. Bijnore Superintendent of Police Sanjeev Tyagi said, “We have formed eight teams and a combing operation is underway to trace him. Posters announcing the bounty and carrying his pictures and personal details of Ashwini have also been put up at various locations. Locals are being requested to alert the police about his whereabouts.”last_img read more

New Delhi Telecom regulator Trai will take additi

By

first_imgNew Delhi: Telecom regulator Trai will take additional time to finalise its views on Over-The-Top (OTT) norms and issues around lawful interception and security are expected to be the key focus, an official said. The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India’s (Trai) deliberations on the issue may take at least one more month to conclude, as it is looking at international practices and regulations around OTTs, particularly on security-related aspects. Also Read – Commercial vehicle sales to remain subdued in current fiscal: IcraOTT services refer to applications and services that are accessible over the internet and ride on an operator’s network. Skype, Viber, WhatsApp and Hike are some of the popular and widely-used OTT services. A senior Trai official said that the regulator wants to take a “practical approach” to the OTT issue. Moreover, OTT usage is also benefiting telcos given the spike in data consumption and traffic, and hence any argument about such services merely riding free on telecom networks is no longer as compelling. Also Read – Ashok Leyland stock tanks over 5 pc as co plans to suspend production for up to 15 daysEconomic aspects, therefore, are not the prime focus any more, said the official. “Now largely it has boiled down to security issue…questions like how the security concerns can be addressed, how other countries have dealt with security concerns. The problem has become a little limited – it is not as big as it was, when we started,” the Trai official said. Last year, Trai had issued its consultation paper — Regulatory Framework for Over The Top Communications Services’ – to debate whether OTT players should be brought under the regulatory regime. Of late, many of these platforms have come under intense scrutiny, and the Indian government is also proposing changes in IT rules to seek greater accountability from these firms, in the backdrop of the apps being used for circulation of fake news and misinformation. While issuing its discussion paper last year, Trai had made it clear that the scope of its consultation would be regulatory issues and economic concerns pertaining to those OTT services that are same or similar to the services provided by telecom service providers (TSPs). In the consultation paper, Trai had also sought the industry’s views on which OTT services should be regarded as the same or similar to those offered by telecom operators, and if “substitutability” should be the main criteria for comparison of regulatory or licensing rules applicable to TSPs and OTT service providers. Trai has also sought industry’s opinion on whether there are issues surrounding lawful interception of OTT communication that need to be resolved in the interest of national security and whether responsibilities of OTT service providers and telecom service providers should be distinct. “Now the question is of regulatory imbalance, on the issue of lawful enforcement…This is not only regulatory imbalance, it has implications on security of the country. So the argument is now limited to security-related issues,” the TRAI official said. Trai is looking at how other nations have dealt with such issues. “Security is not just India’s concern, it is a concern for every country,” the source said adding that TraiRAI has scheduled internal presentations and is likely to finalise its view in another month or so.last_img read more

New Delhi The role of an opener in Test cricket r

By

first_imgNew Delhi: The role of an opener in Test cricket requires a different philosophy and mindset, where the ability to translate talent and intent into consistent performance is paramount, insists the legendary Sachin Tendulkar. As Rohit Sharma showed signs of fitting into Indian team management’s ‘Virender Sehwag Model’ with a hundred in his first Test as opener, Tendulkar spoke about the bigger picture of facing the new ball in traditional format. Also Read – We will push hard for Kabaddi”s inclusion in 2024 Olympics: Rijiju”It’s all about the mindset. If somebody wants to open the innings, then he needs to have a different kind of mindset,” Tendulkar told PTI in an exclusive interview. Talk about Sehwag, Tendulkar reminded that along with the mindset, it is also about ability, which Sehwag had in abundance. “Sehwag had that different mindset. Be it a ODI or Test, he would more or less play in the same manner. That aggressive nature was always there. Again, it boils down to the capability and the potential of that particular player,” said Tendulkar. Also Read – Djokovic to debut against Shapovalov at Shanghai Masters”There are number of guys, who want to be aggressive but to able to use that ammunition (aggression) consistently enough is something that Sehwag had been able to do. That number (opener) suited him. One needs to wait and see how it pans out (for Rohit),” said Tendulkar, whose world record of 200 Test appearances is unlikely to be broken anytime soon. Talking about philosophy, Tendulkar recalled that along with stupendous success, Sehwag also encountered rough patches but never changed his style. “Like for Sehwag, he opened for the first time in England and got a hundred. It brought him success but there were occasions, when he also had his share of rough patches. So it’s not the numbers that always really matter but what you bring to the table does,” he explained. Security and a sense of belonging is something that also brings the best out of any player, opined the all-time highest run scorer in Tests and ODIs. “I think security has to be there. If you look at any number, there has to be that security and one needs to feel that he belongs to the team. Players go through ups and down, but if they know that management is backing them, they tend to think differently,” he feels. Among the new crop of youngsters, Tendulkar is impressed with Hanuma Vihari’s temperament during the past few series. “You need to play Test cricket differently and real skill is tested on good bowler-friendly tracks and he has gone out and shown an ideal temperament,” Tendulkar said. “Vihari has been smart in selecting right shots to play at the right time. I have been impressed by his calmness, temperament as well as ability to absorb pressure. In Test cricket, various aspects are going to be tested and if you are sure of those things, your body language is different, which I saw in him,” said Tendulkar. The technical aspect that impressed Tendulkar was Vihari was ready to leave deliveries, a quality that’s also there in Australia’s find of Ashes Marnus Labuschagne. “In Ashes, Marnus Labuschagne is one of the top examples, he replaced Smith (as that Concussion substitute) at the Lord’s and then he stood out because I feel he was leaving the ball better than anyone else.” Tendulkar loves the concept of World Test Championship but it will only have context if the tracks are “sporting” in nature. “It can only happen if you play on sporting tracks and when I mean sporting tracks, it’s balanced one. If there isn’t a bit of something for everyone, then there is no point as the game itself gets affected,” he said giving the example of Ashes. “Ashes was example we got to see everything. Quality batting, top notch fast bowling and spinners also in play. There were players, who were attacking and there were players who are leaving the balls as well. Those elements shouldn’t disappear from Test cricket.” As far as points system is concerned (120 for series clean sweep), Tendulkar finds it as a good move to keep the fans engaged. “Points and all that, team would want to focus on game and nothing else. But what points system does is to keep spectators’ engagement alive. If a team has won first two Test matches, third shouldn’t be a dead rubber. Players will always give their best but how do you keep spectators engaged and involved is also important. “In the last 4 and 5 months, when teams are fighting for the top two slots, the points system will certainly add dimension and I wont be surprised if Test enthusiasts will be engrossed in calculating points,” said Tendulkar.last_img read more

Khalilzad’s comes days after Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan’s visit to the US where he met Trump and among other issues discussed the revival of negotiations to bring peace in Afghanistan. Since his appointment in September last year, Afghanistan-born Khalilzad has met with all sides in an attempt to end America’s longest war in which the US has lost over 2,400 soldiers in more than 17 years. The US and the Taliban had agreed on draft peace plan, but the process was suspend by President Trump following killing of an American soldier in Kabul last month in a suicide attack claimed by the Taliban. Trump stunned the world when he suddenly declared that the Afghan peace talks with the Taliban were “dead”. He cancelled a secret meeting with the Taliban and Afghan President Ashraf Ghani at Camp David near Washington after the Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack in Kabul, in which an American soldier was among the dead. The Taliban control nearly half of Afghanistan, and are more powerful now than they were at any time since the 2001 US-led invasion after the 9/11 terror attacks. The US has continued to push for a ceasefire in the war-torn country and the opening of negotiations between the Taliban and the Kabul government. The Taliban, however, have repeatedly refused to meet with officials of the Afghan government, whom they dismiss as “puppets”. The US has long considered Pakistani cooperation crucial to efforts to end the war in Afghanistan.last_img read more

By

first_imgNew Delhi: There will be many more structural reforms by the government in the coming days to push economy to a high growth trajectory, Niti Aayog CEO Amitabh Kant said on Thursday.

The first list of candidates declared by the Bhara

By

first_imgThe first list of candidates declared by the Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) for the Haryana assembly on September 30 elections sprung a surprise for many observers after one of the doyens in Haryana politics, veteran Ahirwal leader and a cabinet minister in the Haryana government holding key portfolios Rao Narbir Singh was denied a ticket from Badshahpur. The largest constituency in Gurugram Vidhan Sabha was won by Rao Narbir Singh by a margin of over 80,000 votes in 2014. Rao Narbir has been replaced by Manish Yadav who will turn 37 years in age just a week before the declaration of election results on October 24.

Also Read – Union min Hardeep Singh Puri, Delhi L-G lay foundation stones for various projects in DwarkaIn a candid conversation with Millennium Post correspondent Piyush Ohrie, Yadav speaks of why BJP this time will deliver its best result in Haryana assembly elections, his vision for his constituency and the solution to the challenges that are being faced by the citizens of the constituency he will fight to win. What gives you the confidence that BJP will be able to achieve the ambitious target of winning 75 out of 90 seats this time in the Haryana assembly elections? The confidence comes out of us being connected with people on the ground. Not only are the voters happy with the work of the Narendra Modi government in the center but they are also extremely satisfied with the work of the Manohar Lal Khattar government in the state. The Manohar Lal government has successfully demonstrated that a corruption-free government works without favour and bias does result in the progress for the region. Our principle Haryana ek, Haryanvi ek (one Haryana, one Haryanvi) has found a resonance with the people. What is your vision for your constituency? Badshahpur is the largest constituency in Gurugram Vidhan Sabha seat. Badshahpur consists of urban as well as rural voters. My priority, therefore, is to ensure that there is balanced and equitable development where each and every citizenry is benefitted from the government schemes. I want to improve the infrastructure and my focus will be to reform the primary educational and healthcare centers. Harnessing water harvesting techniques is also on my agenda. Does the opposition claim that basic services like education, medicine and power have only deteriorated in your five years of governance? How do you counter these allegations? Unlike the previous governments, BJP, when it came to power, was committed to improving the basic services. We have set up a structure and the work is going on the reformation. Gurugram University, Mata Sheetala medical college, and smart grid power project is the evidence on the ground of how we have dealt with the challenges effectively. How will you tackle with those builders who have duped the homebuyers by not delivering the flats or providing substandard quality houses? We understand the pain of home buyers and that is why we set up Haryana real estate regulatory act. Builders who are not complying with the laws and not paying heed to homebuyers, interest will be booked as per law. Most of the areas in your constituency get waterlogged with few millimeters of rainfall? How do you wish to deal with this challenge if you win the seat? Our government worked on the widening of Badhahpur drain and this has yielded results. We have also worked on improving the drainage system and are in the process of reviving water embankments. All these processes will ensure that the residents of Gurugram would not have to suffer because of rains.last_img read more
