Encroachment on shamlat land?
Our Correspondent

Zirakpur, January 12
In an alleged move to grab “shamlat” land at Bhabhat village, a well -connected person has raised temporary structures on a link road blocking the approach to a number of other land owners’ property.

The land, in question, is located at Bhabhat village which was recently included in the newly constituted Zirakpur Nagar Panchayat. This piece of prime property is located on the Chandigarh-Ambala National Highway 22 and is ideal for constructing a restaurant or residential complex.

The land scam came to light when a resident of Sector 38 Ms G. Shergill objected to the setting up of a shed on the link road which had blocked the way to her land. She even approached the local police and the authorities of the civic body and the structure was demolished.

Ms Shergill alleged that Mr Bhag Singh, who also owns a resort nearby, had raised the shed again overnight and even fitted electricity connection on the second day with the help of his personnel security guards who were armed with sticks, batons and other arms, she alleged.

While talking to The Tribune Ms Shergill complained that Mr Garish Verma, the Executive Officer of the Zirakpur Nagar Panchayat, who visited the spot, ignored the issue.

Meanwhile, Mr Bhag Singh, said he had constructed the shed over the land which he had taken from the erstwhile panchayat of the village on lease. He said he had done nothing illegal by constructing a temporary shed on the land.

It may be recollected that a powerful ‘‘encroacher — politician mafia’’ had felled over 1000 fully grown eucalyptus trees in order to grab a 15-acre plot on the same location.

The scam had come to light when a truck and two tractor trailers loaded with the logs of felled trees were intercepted by the octroi staff on November 15 on a tip off from some residents. On the basis of non-production of necessary receipts obtained from the village panchayat the suspects were nabbed.

The driver of the vehicles could only show the receipt of carrying logs of nine trees only while they had transported logs of over 900 trees.

Sources had revealed that at least three top Punjab Cabinet Ministers along with senior officers of Ropar district had allegedly “pressurised” the village panchayat to pass a resolution permitting the felling of only nine trees of a Patiala-based firm in back date.

The mafia had prior knowledge of merger of Bhabhat village with the Zirakpur Nagar Panchayat and were in the know-how of this 15-acre plot which was the village “common village land”.

Following pressure from some influential politicians and officials, the Nagar Panchayat authorities were forced to release the vehicles along with the wood.

Some residents of the area had approached Capt Kanwaljit Singh, Finance and Planning Minister, on this issue and had asked him to look into the matter but nothing has been done in this regard so far.

Mr Ashok Kumar Sikka, Administrator of the Zirakpur Nagar Panchayat, was not available for comments.

Residents complain that encroachers have taken over various pieces of “shamlat” lands in the Zirakpur Nagar Panchayat areas but officers of the civic body have not taken any action against them.



Hackers corrupt HFCL portals
Unleash anti-India propaganda
Tribune news Service

Hackers these days crack the Domain Name Server (DNS) to have access to a number of web servers. Microsoft becomes the prominent victim of a new type of hack that attacks the domain name server. In these denial-of-service attacks, the DNS paths that take users to Microsoft’s Web sites are corrupted. The hack is detected within a few hours, but prevents millions of users from reaching Microsoft Web pages for two days.

SAS Nagar, January 12
The web server of a leading private telecom service provider, HFCL Infotel Ltd has been hacked. Suspected to be harbouring anti-national feelings, the hacker(s) tampered with the information available on the four portals of the telecom service provider.

Certain comments on the Indian leaders, reflecting anti-national sentiments, had been inserted on the web pages of the company,, and The hacking case was handed over today to the police for investigation.

According to the information, the web server of the company was reportedly hacked on January 6 and remained inaccessible till January 7, when it was restored by professionals. The police suspects that the hackers finding the name of Bharat on one of the portals, tampered with the information. Computer professionals said the hackers cracked the Internet Protocol Number (IPN) of the HFCL’s web server. To know the source, the IPN of the hackers would have to be traced by the Gateway service Provider, like Puncom and Glide in the region. Tracking down the hackers through their IPN could still be a difficult task.

The Assistant Superintendent of Police, Mr Kalpana Nayak, said the police was trying to get in contact with the computer professionals specialising in cyber crime. A case under section 66 (2) of the Information Technology Act was being registered by the police.

Earlier, the Chandigarh Police had registered a case against a city-based firm on charges of hacking the main server of a US-based firm.

Meanwhile, the lack of knowledge about cyber crimes and provisions for booking the accused under the relevant sections of the Information Technology Act is proving a major constraint for the police force in the region. In spite of the fact that regular refresher courses are regularly being organised- both for the Punjab Police and Chandigarh Police- there is no stress on making the cops “computer literate.”

HFCL officials were not available for comments.



Changes sought in rehabilitation policy
Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, January 12
Seeking stringent changes in the terms and conditions of the controversial rehabilitation policy of the Chandigarh Administration, the Pind Bachao Committee, a body of villagers, who were evacuated to build Chandigarh has demanded that future allotments must be made only after the incorporation of the new set of conditions.

Even the rehabilitation of 5,000 families of authorised original residents of 11 acquired villages should be done only after the incorporation of this pre-condition in the terms and conditions of the policy, the committee said today. Mr Angrez Singh Badheri, president of the committee, said the seller and purchaser in case of sale of Rehabilitation units be penalised under special criminal laws of theft, breach of trust and other relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code with a minimum of five year imprisonment and fine equivalent to double the sum of the prevailing premium (minimum of Rs 50,000).

The allotment should either be transferred in favour of their next of kin or taken back by the government.

Giving reasons for the incorporation of this condition the committee says this will ensure a check against black marketing of cheap houses or plots provided by government assistance or subsidy. If the policy continues in the present manner under which the residents of unauthorised labour colonies are rehabliatated no land will be left to maintain the city as City Beautiful.

This will ensure that only those who are interested in settling down here will get the benefit and only criminal action can curb the intention to sell the allotments. With premiums ranging between Rs 3 to 5 lakh it has become a business of unauthorised migrants to first build a jhuggi and then seek rehabilitation only to sell it moving on to another jhuggi. Due to this fraud the Administration has suffered loss worth crores since 1975 when the scheme was started.

The National Human Rights Commission has told the administration to provide maximum benefits to the evicted villagers as they had been evicted without a rehabilitation scheme. The committee has requested that residents of acquired villages should not be allotted flats under any scheme.

Mr Angrez Singh said at least five marla plots should be allotted in line with the existing policy of Punjab Government for the weaker sections/landless/Dalits-because Punjab laws/rules are followed in Chandigarh as per the Re-organisation of States Act 1966.



‘Snow scooters for ITBP soon’
Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, January 12
As part of its massive upgradation programme, the Indo-Tibetan Border Police Force (ITBP) will induct snow scooters for efficient patrolling and logistic support in snow-bound areas along the Himalayan frontier.

This was stated by the ITBP Director-General, Mr S.C. Chaube, during the passing-out parade of the 57th condensed course at the ITBP Basic Training Centre at Bhanu near here. He said the acquisition process was underway and the force expected to get these at the earliest. He added that ideally, there should be two snow scooters per company for battalions deployed in snow-bound areas.

At present, ITBP battalions consisted of four companies, which would be increased to six in the next three years. The Central Government had sanctioned the raising of 38 new companies for the 32-battalion-force. Eleven battalions were deployed in counter-insurgency operations in Jammu and Kashmir.

He stated that a detailed perspective plan for upgradation of the force had been sent to the Home Ministry. The ITBP chief said the force was thinking in terms of acquiring force multipliers, as was the trend worldwide. Science and technology was a major area of focus, he added.

He said the ITBP was going in for a massive infrastructure development programme, under which link roads were being constructed in border regions. These roads, besides being a boon for people residing in border or remote areas, would also fulfill ITBP’s operational requirements, he added.

Highlighting various welfare measures being undertaken by the force for its personnel, Mr Chaube said central schools for children of ITBP personnel were being established in all ITBP battalions and formation headquarters. While some units already had schools in their locations, schools in the remaining 20 or so battalions would be established by the end of this year, he asserted.

Additional quarters for separated families were also being constructed at various locations. Efforts were also being made to improve the quality of life of officers and jawans manning forward posts in remote and inaccessible areas, the ITBP chief remarked.

Mr Chaube earlier reviewed the passing-out parade. A total of 225 recruits were inducted into the force in various technical branches and trades on the culmination of a 24-week course.



Lohri goodies in great demand
Monica Sharma

Chandigarh, January 12
Juice vendors virtually disappeared from the city streets today. No, they were not on a strike, but were busy selling groundnuts, pop-corns, rewris and gachaks on the eve of year’s first festival — Lohri.

Vendors enthusiastically pushed their rehris after covering these with polythene sheets. They could be heard screaming, urging residents to leave cosy comfort of their beds and make purchases.

The occasion is considered synonymous with these “winter delicacies” and every year the residents rush to Sector 20, 26, 15 and other city markets to purchase alluring packs of goodies from “the not-so-young-entrepreneurs” sitting under tarpaulin tents.

Little wonder, encouraged by the “heavy demand”, the juice vendors this year left behind their traditional business of quenching thirst and took to lanes and streets, not for the convenience of city residents, but for earning “some easy money”.

“It’s a golden opportunity for us,” asserted Lakhpat, an orange juice vendor who has been cycling his rehri down the Sector 10 market for the past 10 years. “After squeezing oranges for the entire day, I am able to earn around Rs 200. Today, I have been able to pocket this much money in less than four hours”.

Giving details, he said: “Every other resident is purchasing groundnuts, gachaks and rewris due to festive spirit. The sale is exceptionally high this year due of another reason also. Lohri in 2002 falls on a Sunday and the entire family, in most of the cases, is together to celebrate the festival”.

Another juice vendor, Preetam Singh of Mani Majra, stated: “The business is profitable because the prices of gachaks shoot up two days prior to the festival, increasing the profit margin in the process. In anticipation, we purchased groundnuts and other items from the grain market a few days back at a nominal price and now harvesting the fruits of our ceaseless efforts”.

Good break for Esha Deol
Sanjeev Singh Bariana

‘Koi Mere Dil Se Poochche’ (Batra) is a clean romantic script which has freshness in its settings backed by a mentionably lilting music.

Esha Deol (‘Dream girl’ Hema Malini’s daughter) could not have asked for a better break than a presentation where she walks away with the cream of director Vijay Shukla’s attention. Aftab Shivdasani too has neat role and Sanjay Kapoor has experimented in a negative role.

The movie is not any fresh story idea of a film delicacy, but it has experimented with the new preparation making alterations and the result has a good taste. Care has been taken on ‘over dramatisation’ of those deceived in love also care is visible even in any sort of over emphasizing self-pity of the wronged ones. Jaya Bachchan’s role has the power to evoke crowd reaction, which is the hallmark of any good screen personality.

Anupam Kher, a millionaire, has brought up his son Aftab with all care and love after the death of his wife. He is busy looking for a life partner for his son. The son is an artist into fashion designing and bears the looks of a sleepy dreamer looking for artistic glory and a ‘dream girl’.

She walks down the campus lanes one day and puts Aftab off his heels. He is madly in love but Esha does not respond. Anupam also approaches her home and meets Jaya.

Jaya advocates Aftab’s worth to Esha but she is not ready to marry Aftab even when “he is known for his decency and soberness”. The reason is that Esha has a very deep-rooted tragic past, which she cannot overcome.

Esha was married to Sanjay Kapoor, son of Jaya. He was into ways of “easy life”. He wanted to photograph his wife nude and had no problems when his friends acted fresh with her.

She runs and the tent where they are staying catches fire. She sees Sanjay burn.

Jaya now takes care of Esha as her daughter. She convinces her to marry Aftab. She does concede. When the engagement function is being carried out, Sanjay makes a comeback appearance. Travellers on their way had saved him.

One interesting additive to the story is the Amitabh Bachchan-Shah Rukh Khan parody lifted from the original in Mohabbatein’. Jaspal Bhatti plays the parodied role of Bachchan.

The film is a Surinder Kapoor and Boney Kapoor presentation. Rajesh Roshan has lent the music to lyrics of Suryabhan Gupt, Dev Kohli and Ibrahim Ashq.



Learning to live again
Rajiv Kaplish

It is their traumatic past that is corroding their uncertain present. Her unpleasant memories of an estrangement from the family haunting every moment of her life. His painful reminiscences of a tragic car accident which killed his wife and kid making him move in a sort of existential daze.

Two tormented souls clinging to their half-lives. One, outwardly cleaning the mean streets of Chicago of baddies as a cop but undergoing a private hell. The other, sleeping trance-like in an empty apartment, developing an unspoken bond of love with a kid in the neighbourhood and dispensing gifts to anyone in need.

As they traverse the landscape of their minds in ‘‘Angel Eyes’’ (Kiran), despondent crime-buster Jennifer Lopez and mysterious Jim Caviezel seem to be becoming aware of how painful is pain. Salvation lies in reaching out and discovering and rediscovering each other.

It is a tapestry of emotions that director Luis Mandoki weaves around the world of two individuals whom life has treated shabbisly. Its threads may be faded, its texture might be having coarse edges, but the pattern that emerges is luminous.
