Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, July 10
While Panjab University has extended the last date for admissions to colleges till July 13, the admission process in most city colleges has drawn to a close with most of them gearing up for the new session to begin from tomorrow.

Three students faint at fee counter

Admissions to various departments of Panjab University peaked today with hundreds of students jostling with one another to deposit fee at the State Bank of India counter. The counter area cannot accommodate more than 70 to 80 persons and was crowded with over a hundred students queuing in.

At least three girls waiting for their turn at the counter fainted. “We have decided to agitate in front of the VC's office tomorrow morning to demand that students be allowed to pay the fee in the departments. Students are harassed when they have to first go to the individual departments for admissions and then come to the administrative block to pay the fee,” said Rupinder Singh Mann, president, Panjab University Students Union.

Gearing up for the new students, colleges are ready with anti-ragging helpline, orientation programmes and imposition of ban on mobile phones in classrooms.

Government College, Sector 11, Government College for Girls, Sector 11, Government College for Girls, Sector 42, and Government College, Sector 46, besides some private colleges would open their doors to new students tomorrow. They would continue to admit students to BA-I till July 13.

Though ragging has been banned in all colleges, each college has a committee of lecturers to handle complaints of ragging. Special meetings have been held to enhance strictness regarding the effective implementation of the ban on the use of mobile phones in classrooms.

“We cannot stop the use of mobile phones by students within the campus. There are students who come from far-off places and for them mobile is a necessity but we would ban its use in the classrooms. Also, ragging would not be allowed. Notices regarding this have been put up in the college. We would also be talking about these issues during a special assembly for freshers tomorrow,” pointed out Dr Shashi Jain, Principal, Dev Samaj College for Women, Sector 45.

Other than students of Bachelors in Physical Education who have to adhere to a uniform, there is no dress code for students.

DAV College, Sector 10, would start classes on July 12 and SGGS College, Sector 26, on July 17. BCA classes have begun at the SGGS College for Girls, Sector 26, while the rest of the classes would begin on July 17. At MCM DAV College, Sector 36, B.Com and B.Sc classes would begin tomorrow.

Illegal parking: MC passes the buck to cops
Saurabh Malik
Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, July 10
The parking lot on the road meandering its way through the city’s history, and downtown, before passing in front of Mehfil restaurant in Sector 17 has turned into a battlefield between the Municipal Corporation of Chandigarh and the local police.

Less than a month after “illegality” committed by the contractor was brought to the foreground in these columns, the corporation has categorically stated that it is for the Chandigarh Police to launch a drive against illegal parking in the lot located bang in front of Mehfil.

Talking to Chandigarh Tribune, a senior corporation officer said the lot was meant specifically for parking two-wheelers. As such, the action of leaving behind cars and other four-wheelers in the lot by motorists was not justified.

The information about the same had already been forwarded to the Chandigarh Police and it was now for the cops to initiate action against erring drivers and to discourage them from leaving behind four-wheelers by either towing away the vehicles or imposing a penalty, the officer asserted.

The Chandigarh Police, he added, was every now and then deploying cranes to tow away wrongly parked vehicles and depositing these with “auto-pounds” all over the city, but had somehow ignored the Mehfil parking lot despite the publication of news reports in this regard.

The police had launched a drive to check motorists indulging in wrong parking by deploying police personnel all along the road. However, after a day, it too left the place, allowing the continuation of wrong parking.

“In all probability, the cops suspended the drive after a couple of businessmen running operations in the area requested the police not to prevent the parking of four-wheelers, lest the move affected their business,” he said.

Denying the involvement of corporation staff in the racket, he said the official concerned ensured the removal of the board announcing the rates for leaving behind the four-wheelers as soon as information about the installation of the same was carried in these columns.

The officer, however, refused to comment on the reasons behind the corporation’s failure to forward a formal complaint for registration of a case against the contractor or his employees for the installation of the board in its name.

A senior Chandigarh Police officer, on the other hand, insisted that they were looking into the problem from different angles and were trying to resolve the issue. He categorically added that action in the parking lot matter was delayed as they were asked to go slow by the district administration.

New twist in Dimpy murder case
Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, July 10
In an interesting twist to the sensational murder of gangster Prabhjinder Singh Dimpy, Mohali resident Balwinder Singh Brar had reportedly owned responsibility for the killing a day following the incident, according to police sources.

The Chandigarh Police today picked up Balwinder for questioning in connection with the case when his mobile phone details came to light. He told the investigating officials that he was under the influence of intoxicants, when he sent the messages to the accomplices of Balwinder that he had killed him.

Balwinder had sent an SMS to over 35 accomplices of Dimpy on July 8, claiming that he had killed Dimpy. He had written in the SMS that he had killed Dimpy and the police could not do anything about it. “You can go and tell the police and let them do whatever they want,” he wrote.

He is said to be an old acquaintance of Dimpy and knew him from the latter’s student days. Both hailed from the same area in Punjab.

On Balwinder’s arrest in charge of the Crime Branch Satbir Singh said he had not been arrested, but was only being questioned. “It apparently looked like an impulsive act which might not bear any connection with the chain of events that led to Dimpy’s murder,” he said.

The Chandigarh Police today also questioned some other persons.

Meanwhile, Harneev Kaur, who was in the car with Dimpy, was discharged from the PGI today. The police today stated that she would be further questioned after she recovers.

The police has also started going through the details of thousands of mobile phone calls made in the area on the day the murder took place.

A Chandigarh police party has also been sent to Muktsar to trace the arm dealers from where the cartridges used in the murder had reportedly been procured. The police said the cartridges recovered from Dimpy’s body had been traced to a couple of specific dealers in Muktsar. The police has also procured the details of the sale made by these dealers in the past weeks.

Chandigarh Calling
Camel ride through the city

In this city with a phenomenal number of motorised vehicles, a camel rider on the city’s Madhya Marg becomes a curiosity indeed. The owner of this desert ship makes a daily trip from Mullanpur Gharib Das village beyond the PGI to fetch groceries from the Sector 26 Grain Market for the village shops. The camel is covered with a beautifully embroidered cloth from Rajasthan and the owner uses the camel to give rides to the children at fairs and festivals. Other times, the destination is the city’s mandi. Tribune photographer captures this picturesque sight as the camel feeds itself on some green leaves.

Adieu Bittu

Bittu, a 25-year-old male hippo, bade adieu to the Mahendera Chaudhary Zoological Park, Chhatbir, on Friday. He died due a cardiac arrest on Friday. Bittu was one of the oldest inmates of the zoo. It was brought from the Guwahati zoo when he was just 10. A special crane was used to lift the 2,000-kg water denizen from the enclosure. During the daytime, he was commonly seen wallowing in water and occasionally open its mouth up to 180 degrees, much to the amusement of the visitors. He was laid to rest in the zoo. Now, the zoo is home to two adult female and two baby hippos.

Flying high

The race for grades is so unpredictable and mind-boggling that while some get marks that are much below their expectations, others are surprised at the bounty. Sometimes this insecurity can drive the young to be impulsive and take a hasty decision. A local student of a government model school was so scared of not getting good marks in the 12th Boards that even before the result was declared she was selected and enrolled at the local institute for training as an airhostess. A hefty amount was given as the fee. When the result was declared, she was surprised to know that she had got 92 per cent but did not know whether to feel happy or sad. She wished she had not been so hasty and the parents refused to let her reconsider her option considering the amount involved.

Corporate culture

The multiplex-cinema culture in town has surely led to a craving for something more than mushy movies. No wonder, films like Chandani Bar and Corporate are being well received by the audiences. City people, in fact, want more from their movie-watching experience rather than just munching those popcorns with fizzy colas. Perhaps that’s one reason why offbeat movies are being watched. A decade back, if a movie like Corporate was made at all, people would either dismiss it totally or be overawed by how offbeat the theme was. But recently, a group of corporate buffs was heard commenting that the movie lacked substance. “That is not what Corporate is all about. The film lacks a subtle insight into our pressures and strategies. Killing people and pleasing politicians is not corporate war.”

TV trouble

A large number of air force officers and airmen residing within the premises of the Air Force Station here have been deprived of information and entertainment for the past about two months as their cable TV connections have been cut-ff by the distributor. According to Air Force officers, there had been complaints about poor service and bad transmission, following which the matter was taken up by the distributor several times. Instead of improving the services, the connections were cut-off. There are over 300 officers as well as airmen who are residing within the air force station campus. Not only are they unable to get the latest news or view TV programmes of their choice, but were extremely peeved at not being able to watch the Soccer World Cup. Dark sky Sunday noon let the city folks amazed as daylight gave way to darkness. It was an eerie feeling indeed to watch the dark and ominous sky with streaks of flaming orange. It was actually a sky overcast with dark clouds and a blanket of dust. The rain that followed washed away the darkness and brought relief to the people from humid heat.

Probe findings a relief for Cheema
Ramanjit Singh Sidhu

Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, July 10
Less than five months after Police Inspector J.S. Cheema claimed that he was implicated in a sexual harassment case by a woman ASI, a departmental inquiry has revealed that even her role was questionable.

The findings have come as a major relief to Cheema as he had all along been claiming that ASI Sarabjit Kaur Sekhon had accused him of harassing her just because he was looking into a false case of eve teasing registered at her behest.

UT SSP Gaurav Yadav said the report has been submitted by the crime branch and was being looked into. A final decision in the matter would be taken after thoroughly scrutiny of the report.

The development is significant as the case of sexual harassment will lose credibility if the recommendations of the inquiry are accepted by the top brass of the Chandigarh Police. The sources add that even the cancellation of the case against Cheema on Sekhon's complaint can be recommended.

The sources in the Crime Branch of the Chandigarh Police said the findings have clearly stated that "Sehkon has implicated a Mullanpur Garibdass resident Misha Singh in a false case of eve-teasing".

Giving details of the report, the sources said the statements of 11 witnesses were recorded in this matter, besides scrutinising the mobile call details of Sekhon. All the evidence was then cross examined during the course of the inquiry.

The report says that following a through scrutiny of the facts and the statements recorded by the witnesses, it was established that Misha's car was hit by two girls, riding on a Kinetic Honda scooter in Sector 10 on January 24. After the mishap, the girl gave in writing that she did not want legal action. The case of eve-teasing has been falsely registered against Misha.

The report has even recommended cancellation of the eve-teasing case. The inquiry was entrusted to the Crime Branch on the directions of UT Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Satish Chandra.

Misha Singh was booked for eve-teasing on January 24. Following the registration of the case, his mother Shenaz Sarao filed a complaint with the IGP, alleging that her son was implicated by Sekhon and demanded a fair inquiry into the matter.

The IGP entrusted the inquiry to Cheema. During the course of inquiry, Sekhon levelled allegation of sexual harassment against Cheema on February 20.

Following the allegations, the senior officers ordered another inquiry, this time into the allegations levelled by Sekhon against Cheema. Subsequently, Cheema suffered a massive heart attack and had to be hospitalised. He was later made to undergo a by-pass surgery.

Fauji Beat
Soap operas cannot attract good engineers

To offset the acute shortage of technical officers, the Army Headquarters has planned to increase the intake of technical graduates in each course at the Indian Military Academy (IMA), Dehra Dun, and the Officers’ Training Academy, Chennai. To attract suitable candidates from the IITs and leading technical colleges, the Army has hired a big advertising company for Rs 8 core.

A similar electronic media exercise to attract the promising youth was carried out by the Army in 1996. But it did not help much. It is surprising that rather than grasping the nettle by addressing the core issues, the Army is wasting funds on soap operas, which hardly produce any encouraging results.

These days, a good technical graduate, after a training of three to four months, starts with a monthly salary of Rs 20,000 to Rs 25,000 in a corporate sector undertaking. How does the Army expects to lure that candidate to its fold at half the salary? Not to speak of the arduous, unsettled and risky life as also early retirement that the Army service offers. Incidentally, the Army Chief’s monthly salary is Rs 30,000 (fixed).

At the cost of repetition, it is once again emphasised that the terms and conditions of service, pay packets, perks, pensions and other benefits need to undergo a sea change, if we want the right kind of material to opt for the Army. The last pay drawn is the pension of defence personnel in a number of countries, to name only one of the attractions in other armies.

Pay panels ignore ex-servicemen

As per an assurance given by the Prime Minister, Dr Manmohan Singh, to a delegation of trade unions of July 3, the Sixth Pay Commission for the Central Government employees will be set up by the end of July.

One of the long-standing demands of the ex-servicemen is that there should be a separate pay commission for them. Since the terms and conditions of service of the defence personnel are widely different from those of the civilian employees, the ex-servicemen’s demand for a separate pay commission is fully justified. To mention only one of the many such differences, a civilian employee retires at the age of 60 years, whereas a jawan retires in his 30s.

Due to their early retirement, about 85 per cent of the armed forces personnel cannot complete 33 years of mandatory service. They cannot, therefore, earn 50 per cent of their last pay drawn as pension, thanks to the successive pay commissions, which have always ignored this glaring and harsh reality of the Army service.

The only way to do justice with armed forces personnel is to constitute a separate pay commission for them as is done in most other countries. Will the government wake up to this reality of injustice that it has all along been perpetrating on them? The obvious answer is “no”, because it has formed a habit of taking the armed forces for granted.

New look Yol Fort

It was in 1958 that 81 Infantry Brigade (Patiala) constructed a small memorial called Yol Fort to commemorate the fallen war heroes of the units then serving in Yol cantonment. The Rising Star Corps has now turned it into a new look fort that houses a museum.

The ramparts of the fort display the photographs along with the citations of five war heroes who belonged to the area of operations of the corps. Besides unfolding the history and culture of Himachal Pradesh, Punjab Jammu and Kashmir, the museum has an interesting colourful section giving the origin and military history of Kangra valley and Yol cantonment.

One gallery is dedicated to the operations conducted by the Indian Army since Independence. Capt Vikram Batra’s corner displays his last letters, photographs and the last uniform that he wore.

Rain fails MC’s claims
Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, July 10
Though the Municipal Corporation (MC) is making claims for being fully prepared for the monsoon, yesterday’s downpour has raised a few questions on these claims. The heavy rain yesterday saw many parts of the city in knee-deep water, while a few parts went without electricity, some for even more than 12 hours.

The water left the roads broken at many places, while a few had potholes. The road near the CTU Workshop in the Industrial Area, Phase I, is one such example where the road has sunk in, while another road (slip road) near the Sector 20 gurdwara has broken.

Rains in the city usually lead to water logging at many areas. The storm water drainage system of the city was initially designed for an average of half an inch and three-fourth of an inch intensity of rainfall per hour for extramural and intramural drains, respectively.

However, more construction has led to the city drains being clogged.
