Muzaffarnagar riots: BJP MLA Sangeet Som, BSP’s Noor Saleem Rana arrested

Lucknow: The Uttar Pradesh police on Saturday arrested Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) legislator Sangeet Som and Bahujan Samaj Party MLA Noor Saleem Rana for their alleged involvement in inciting communal violence in Muzaffarnagar and adjoining areas.
BJP legislator from Sardhana, Sangeet Som, was 'forced' to surrender in Salawa village in Meerut area while BSP MLA Noor Saleem Rana was arrested by the police hours later. Som was also later formally arrested by the police.

 "While BJP MLA Som was arrested in Merrut district, BSP legislator Noor Saleem Rana has been arrested from Muzaffarnagar," IG (law and order) RK Vishwakarma told a news agency. Som was arrested Salava village in presence of his supporters who were shouting slogans against the Uttar Pradesh government.

Som is accused of uploading a fake video that played a crucial role in the Muzaffarnagar communal riots and Rana was held for allegedly making hate speeches in connection with the riots.
Som, who is accused of circulating a video that claimed to show the lynching of two Hindu Jat boys, earlier had said that he has not given any inciting speech, and asked the concerned authorities to prove the charges.

The BJP MLA was later brought to Muzaffarnagar and produced in the court of Chief Judicial Magistrate Kiran Pal Singh which remanded him to 14 days judicial custody in the video clipping case.

Som’s arrest comes a day after the Uttar Pradesh police arrested BJP MLA Suresh Rana on charges of making provocative speeches to cause riots. Meanwhile, a local court on Saturday sent Rana to 14 days of judicial custody.

While the police arrested BSP MLA Noor Saleem Rana, two other party leaders — Qadir Rana and Jameel Ahmed — against whom arrest warrants were issued by a local court are still roaming free.
The arrests come after a court on Wednesday issued arrest warrants against politicians of BSP, BJP and Congress for allegedly inciting violence in Muzaffarnagar and adjoining areas.

The arrest warrants have been issued against BSP leaders Rana, Ahmed and Rana, former Congress MP Saedduzzaman and BJP leaders Hukum Singh, Sangat Singh Som, Suresh Rana and Kunwar Bharatendu. Bharatiya Kisan Union leaders Rakesh Tikait and Naresh Tikait are also on the list.
The Uttar Pradesh Government has constituted a one-member judicial commission to probe the Muzaffarnagar violence, which has claimed over 40 lives.

The commission, which would mainly look into administrative lapses, if any, in controlling the violence, would submit its report to the government within two months.

Violence broke out in the Kawal area of Muzaffarnagar on August 27, when members of a community returning from a panchayat meeting in Naglabadhod, three kilometres from Kawal, clashed with members of another community.

Shahid Afridi will not play for Hampshire

Thursday, 5 July 2012


Pakistan all-rounder Shahid Afridi will not join Hampshire for their Twenty 20 season because of visa problems.

Afridi had been due to be available for all of Hampshire's T20 campaign, but will now miss it entirely.

The Royals have three group games remaining and will continue with the squad they have in place.

"We are deep into the 2012 competition and the side is settled so we don't feel it is right to change that now," said Hants manager Giles White.

Afridi enjoyed a highly successful stay with Hampshire in 2011, taking 17 wickets in 10 matches at an average of 11.17.

His efforts helped the side progress through the group stages unbeaten at home and ultimately to T20 finals day at Edgbaston.

Highlights from Afridi's 2011 campaign included taking his county-best bowling figures of 5-20 on his home debut against Gloucestershire, and an impressive knock of 80 in the semi-final against Somerset.

White added that the door was always open for Afridi to return in the future.

"The door is still open for him to return to Hampshire in future years should circumstances suit both parties.

"He obviously had a huge impact for us last year and has been missed."

By Glamsham Editorial

The Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif starrer EK THA TIGER's brand new theatrical trailer was out yesterday. The trailer looked pretty intriguing and got a roaring response from fans, netizens and people across all fraternity.

The teaser trailer of the film released on 11th May with YRF's ISHAQZAADE and was an instant rage both online and in cinemas. However, it only focused on Salman's action avatar and gave us a brief idea on Agent Tiger's (Salman's character) character sketch.

On the other hand, the second teaser that released yesterday showed us the appealing chemistry of Kat-Sallu, which obviously everybody is looking forward to watch. It has the blend of action, comedy, drama and romance and looks as a perfect entertainer.

Directed by Kabir Khan and Produced by Aditya Chopra, Yash Raj Films' romantic-thriller EK THA TIGER, will release in theatres worldwide on 15th August, 2012.

What is EK THA TIGER about?

This is a film about a story that became a legend, a story that is spoken about only in hushed whispers... a story that shook the very foundation of a dark world of intelligence and espionage... where there are shadows without faces. And where Governments fight shadow battles through soldiers of the unknown...

But like all reports that come out of this uncertain world... nobody will ever confirm those events...

This story is about an agent named TIGER...

It may or may not have happened...

Sarabjit is in good health, says Surjeet

Wagah, June 28 (ANI): Indian prisoner Surjeet Singh, who was officially released by Pakistan earlier today after languishing in jail for more than 30 years, on his arrival at the Wagah Border here, said Sarabjit Singh is fine mentally and physically.

"No, Sarabjit did not send any message through me. He is fine, mentally and physically. Sarabjit is in a good condition there. I used to keep meeting him," he told media on his arrival at the Wagah border here.

" I have been meeting with Sarabjeet weekly. He knew I was being released. Sarabjit Singh has no problems, he walks around, eats and is fine," he added.

Surjeet said the authorities in Pakistan provided everything to Indian prisoners in jail, and added that there is no tension at all.

Surjeet said the problem over the release took place only because of the similarity in names.

"Sarabjeet and Surjeet are written in a similar manner in Urdu that is why the mistake happened. Rehman Malik said all this," he added.

Surjeet, dressed in a white kurta-pyjama and black turban, said he had been arrested on charges of spying, and added that prisoners on both sides of the border should be released.

Surjeet, who was arrested by Pakistan for spying in 1981, appeared to be very ecstatic on his arrival in India, saying nothing he could be happier for him.

"During my imprisonment, I often remembered my family and children. Today I am very happy. I will go to the Golden Temple to pray and hug my children," he said.

Surjeet, who spent at least 27 years in Pakistani jails, was given the death sentence under the Pakistan Army Act in 1985. (ANI)

Facebook Wants To Hire This 17-Year-Old But She Hasn’t Decided If She Wants The Job

Wednesday, 27 June 2012

Nive Jayasekar created a mobile app for Home Depot over a weekend and won $10,500—and got an offer to work at Facebook.

She’s only 17.

The Social-Loco conference organized a hackathon event held June 16-17, sponsored by big brands like Home Depot.

Jayasekar entered, drawn by the prizes. She decided to develop a project organizer for the home-improvement chain as a Windows Phone app, because that was a special prize category.

She swept the event with her app, which made it easy for both novices and experienced gardeners to find materials for landscaping projects. (Those were originally separate prize categories; she developed a single app that addressed both audiences.)

But she barely made it to the conference to accept her prizes. After she found out she won, her mom had to drive her to San Francisco.

It was good timing: Because she was late, she got to present her winning app right before Emily White, Facebook’s director of mobile partnerships, was due to speak. They met backstage and White offered her a summer internship.

“Nive is amazing and I’m going to be working for her someday,” White said at the conference.

But here’s the thing, and it tells you everything you need to know about the war for talent in Silicon Valley right now: The recent graduate of Monta Vista High School in Cupertino, Calif., who’s headed to Carnegie Mellon University in the fall, wouldn’t say whether she’d taken Facebook up on the offer.

“The recruiting process is still going on,” she said.

Facebook couldn’t comment on where things stood.

Let’s review: A 17-year-old just got an internship offer from Facebook, on the spot after winning a programming contest. And she hasn’t decided whether she’s taking the job yet.

Meanwhile, she’s porting the app to Apple’s iOS devices and Android smartphones.

Mantralaya fire continues second day

Saturday, 23 June 2012

IANS (Yahoo News)

Mumbai, June 22 (IANS) The fire in the Maharashtra Mantralaya or secretariat which claimed two lives, and injured over a dozen more here continued Friday morning, with officials saying the blaze was under control but yet to be fully doused.

A major fire broke out Thursday afternoon in room 411 on the fourth floor and quickly spread, engulfing the three top floors of the six storied iconic Mantralaya building in the heart of South Mumbai.

Fire brigade and city disaster control cell officials said that efforts were on to douse the fire that continued Friday morning.

Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan has ordered an inquiry by the Crime Branch into the incident to ascertain whether it was an accident, negligence or sabotage.

Although the rescue teams, comprising of the fire brigade, the police, an Indian Navy team and Force One commandoes and 41 fire tenders from Mumbai, Thane, Navi Mumbai, and other agencies, managed to evacuate and save the 65-odd people trapped on the upper floors, two dead bodies were recovered late in the evening.

Two charred bodies were recovered from outside Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar's office on the sixth floor of the Mantralaya.

"Two dead bodies - both males - have been found outside an office on the sixth floor," a fire official said late Thursday.

Chavan, who held an emergency meeting Thursday evening, discussed the situation with other ministers and planned alternative arrangements for ministers to function till the situation normalised at the state government's administrative headquarters.

"A first-hand assessment of the situation arising out of the fire, the probable causes and precautionary measures to be undertaken for the future were discussed at the meeting," an official said.

The blaze, which badly gutted the three top floors, has virtually paralysed the functioning of several top political heads and bureaucrats of key departments including the Chief Minister, Deputy Chief Minister, Revenue, Tribal Welfare, Forests, Urban Development and Housing, Education, besides the offices of the state chief secretary, the State Disaster Management Cell.

A main control tower atop the Mantralaya which is linked to all the district headquarters in the state has also been damaged and rendered non-functional, besides damage to furniture and fittings, computers, original files and documents of various departments pertaining to important official decisions.

While most ministers and top officials have small offices in government's administrative headquarters, there could be security related issues as some 1,500 men and women work in the landmark building, which gets an equal number of visitors every day.
