HC summons Safdarjung Hospital Supdt
Tribune News Service

New Delhi, May 29
Following complaints that patients admitted to the gynaecological and paediatric wards of Safdarjung Hospital were undergoing treatment under “pathetically unhygienic” conditions, the Delhi High Court today directed the hospital’s medical superintendent to appear before the court at the next hearing.

A Division Bench of Justice M. K. Sharma and Justice Hima Kohli also directed the NDMC to file a status report on the steps taken for removal of all encroachments in and around the hospital within eight weeks and posted the matter for further hearing to August 3. The Bench passed the directions after advocate Maninder Acharaya, a member of the fact-finding committee appointed by the court in 2004, complained that patients admitted to the gynaecology and paediatric wards were living in unhygienic conditions with blood, urine and other dirty material being left uncleaned at the wards for several days at a stretch. It was also complained that the blood-stained clothes of the women patients were being washed right inside the wards, thereby exposing the pregnant women to several infections.

Mr Acharya also alleged that a number of encroachments continued to remain in and around the hospital’s site and the NDMC’s claim that the same had been removed was false and intended to mislead the court. Expressing concern at the conditions cited by the advocate, he held the view that Safdrjung Hospital needed to be developed as a model hospital in the Capital to reduce the pressure on AIIMS.

Tribune News Service

New Delhi, May 29
BSES enforcement teams along with Delhi Police personnel unearthed power theft of more than 1100 KW on which penalties of around Rs 3.8 crore are liable to be imposed.

Last week, BSES Yamuna enforcement teams swooped down on one of the busiest petrol and CNG stations in Mayur Vihar in East Delhi and caught it stealing electricity.

The fuel pump, which not only had deliberately slowed its meter by around 60 per cent, was also found to be drawing more than 90 KW of power as against a sanctioned load of only 11 KW.

According to BSES sources, the electricity that was used to run a 75 HP CNG compressor was clocking an average of only 7000 units per month as opposed to around 20,000 units recorded at other CNG stations using similar compressors.

The fuel pump has been booked for DAE and a penalty of Rs 18 lakh is liable to be imposed on the fuel pump, added the official.

Enforcement teams of the BSES also caught two industrial units in the busy Anand Parbat industrial area stealing electricity of more than 200 KW. Both the iron factory, owned by one Bishan Dass, a registered consumer, and an auto parts manufacturing unit were found with burnt meters. Electricity of over 166 KW and 36 KW, respectively, was being stolen.

Investigations revealed that both the meters had tell-tale signs, clearly indicating that they had been tampered.

On realising that they could be raided, both the factory owners burnt their respective meters and lodged complaints with the BSES, said a BSES official. Cumulative penalties of more than Rs 40 lakh are liable to be imposed for Dishonest Abstraction of Energy, as per the provisions of the Electricity Act 2003.

Controversy over ‘misuse’ of Red Cross funds

Tribune News Service

Faridabad, May 29
Could the funds of the District Red Cross Society, normally meant for social welfare activities, be used for footing a bill of a dinner thrown by a senior official? While it may be considered improper and unjustified by most, the district administration has used the funds of the Society last year to pay a similar bill.

However, the Deputy Commissioner, Mrs G. Anupama, who has been the Chairperson of the Society, has defended the move.

She said the dinner was an expression of gratitude to all those officials who had been directly or indirectly associated with fund raising activities of the Red Cross Society.

According to sources and a copy of the bill (no. 401 dated November 8, 2005) of the official caterers of the Gymkhana Club in sector- 21 here, the dinner had been organised for about 100 guests.

The copy of the cheque in possession with The Tribune states that the bill amount of Rs 21,375 had been paid to Khalsa Caterers. The DC said that this had been done in the past and there had been no controversy over such a move.

However, some officials said that the use of Red Cross Society funds in such a manner could not be justified. A social activist said that Society funds were meant for social causes and not for party purposes.

He said the Deputy Commissioner or any other officials could not divert any fund for such purpose.

Meanwhile, there was some controversy over the footing of a similar bill by a senior official here.

Land allotment of seven clubs cancelled
Our Correspondent

Greater Noida, May 29
The allotment of land to seven clubs has been cancelled by the Greater Noida Authority, which has also issued notices to the managements of another 14 clubs.

All of them were allotted land during Ms Mayawatti’s tenure as UP Chief minister.

Besides, according to sources, the allotment of another 68 clubs is under scrutiny. The GNIDA has asked the managements of the clubs to reply within 15 days as to why their allotments should not be cancelled.

It may be recalled that during 2003, Greater Noida had slotted plots to 105 clubs, crèches, institutes, etc.

But immediately after the change of guard in the State, the Mulayam Singh Yadav government has stopped issuing of allotment letters.

Former CEO Brijesh Kumar had in a probe found that only 15 allotments were genuine.

In his report to the government he had said these allotments were made by in violation of rules and regulations.

The State Government had later got another probe conducted by the former IAS officer, Vijay Shankar Mathur, who too had averred that some of the allotments were wrong. The State Government has now sent both the reports to the Greater Noida authority and ordered that they should examine the issue afresh on merit and take further action. While seven allotments have been cancelled, bungling has been detected in another 14 cases.

The GNIDA had given a 15-day period to the managements of these clubs to put up their case. Scrutiny is underway in another 68 cases.

Tribune News Service

Gurgaon, May 29
Soma Patnaik of D.A.V Public School (Sector 14) has defied physical disabilities and secured over 93 per cent in Class X CBSE exams. She has now emerged as a role model for the student fraternity here.

Soma has only two per cent eye-sight and faces a real danger of losing the remaining vision of her eyes anytime.

In such circumstances, another student would have skipped studying at all, let alone taking up the challenge of competing with her peers.

According to the Principal, Mrs Anita Makkar, Soma’s case is a victory of “mind over Matter”, human courage, dedication to achieve a goal in spite of all odds.

Mrs Makkar said that Soma had to read text and write with the help of magnifying glass because of her weak and fading eyesight.

With apparent pride in her eyes and choked voice, she said that her ward is on a reading binge. “She wants to read as much as she can”.

The reason is that she is conscious of the fact that she may lose her remaining eyesight. Hence, she wants to make the most of it.

Out of the total 226 students of the school, who appeared for the exams, 51 of them scored 90 per cent, 105 scored above 85 per cent and 183 scored above 75 per cent.

The total number of distinctions is 864. Swati Bhardwaj topped the school with more than 97 per cent.

The highest scores in Sanskrit, Mathematics, Sciences and Social Sciences have touched an all-time high of a perfect 100, according to the school authorities.

According to Mrs Makkar, 100 per cent result has been a norm with the school.
