9 dengue cases at DMCH
Gastroenteritis also reappears
Kuldip Bhatia

Ludhiana, August 22
Several city localities, mainly slum areas and those on the periphery, are once again in the grip of dengue and gastroenteritis, belying claims of the Health Department and the municipal corporation of having taken adequate preventive measures and awareness drives in the vulnerable areas.

Nine confirmed cases of dengue were reported at Dayanand Medical College and Hospital (DMCH) here as per reports received by the Health Department. Out of these, four patients were from Dugri, Haibowal, Karimpura and Simlapuri, while five were from other towns in the state.

According to hospital authorities, four patients were still under treatment, while others had been discharged.

At the same time, 12 cases of mild attack of gastroenteritis were reported from Fauji Colony and Janakpuri localities in the city during the past 24 hours. However, none of the victims needed to be hospitalised and teams of medical and paramedical staff of the Health Department were carrying out a comprehensive survey of the affected colonies to provide treatment and educate the people about preventive measures.

The District Epidemiologist, Dr Ajit Singh Chawla, said the situation was well under control. Four confirmed cases of dengue had been reported from different parts of the city which were at considerable distance from one another.

“We have deployed teams for taking preventive measures like anti-mosquito spray in the areas from where dengue cases have been reported. If more cases are reported from any particular area, we will take up the issue with the civic body for fumigation,” he added.

Dr Chawla said stray cases of gastroenteritis were common in this season and going by the small number of cases and severity of the disease, there was no need to worry.

Meanwhile, suspecting contamination of water due to mixing of sewerage discharge with drinking water in the colonies under gastroenteritis attack, the civic officials have started thorough checking of water connections in Fauji Colony.

A large section of city residents was sore over the erratic fogging schedule of the MC, suspect quality of drinking water and indifference on the part of district and health officials towards fighting seasonal diseases that had become a routine affair in the industrial hub of the state.



Infant left to die in polythene bag

Mandi Ahmedgarh, August 22
The clutches of death consumed Anamika, a few-day-old girl child who was left to die because of suffocation in a plastic bag by her biological parents. She breathed her last at Dayanand Hospital here today.

The fight she put to remain alive proved futile for the little girl who could not recover from the respiratory shock that she had received due to remaining in a plastic bag for several hours.

Triumph of life over death proved short-lived and her foster parents were gripped by grief even though her biological mother did not bother to know whether she was dead or alive.

Anamika, named so by the authorities at the hospital, was allegedly left to suffocate to death in a plastic bag and left in a vacant plot at Kup Kalan village nine days ago. The infant, however, survived and the police rescued her. She was shifted to Dyanand Hospital, Ludhiana, for intensive care.

Mr Sajjan Singh, sarpanch of Kup Kalan, had reported to the police that Ruldu Khan, another villager, had noticed a plastic bag lying in a deserted plot at the village. “When we inspected the bag, we found that a girl child was left in that to suffocate by plugging her mouth with a piece of cloth. Though the child was motionless, we found its body warm,” he said.

Mr Darshan Singh, SHO, Sadar, got the child shifted to the Civil Hospital, Malerkotla. She was later shifted to Dyanand Hospital, Ludhiana.

Referring to information received from Dr Bhagwan Singh, Dr Badri Dass, SMO, Civil Hospital Malerkotla, said the respiratory system of the infant had been affected due to plugging and suffocation and intensive care was required for her revival.

Reacting to the reports published in The Tribune, Mr S.R. Ladhar, DC, Sangrur, deputed Dr Indu, SDM, Malerkotla, to monitor the progress of the treatment of the child and hand it over to an orphanage at Talwandi Khurad.

Finding certain lapses in the treatment, Dr Indu had asked the hospital authorities to be extra cautious in her treatment. Accusing certain doctors at the hospital of acting irresponsibly, Mr Darshan Singh, SHO, Sadar, alleged groups of persons desirous of adopting the child had been allowed to see her whereas he (Darshan Singh ) was not allowed to see her.

Dr Amit, who attended on the child, admitted some persons from Samana town were allowed to see the child as they had shown interest in adopting her. “But later we were restrained from doing so by the authorities in the legal cell and we could not allow Darshan Singh or any other official to go near her,” he said.

Mr Darshan Singh and Mr Jagjit Singh Jajj, Executive Officer, Municipal Council, had visited the hospital to inquire about Anamika’s condition.

“I was just to contact my seniors to discuss the matter and shift the child to some other multi-specialty hospital, when I received a call from the hospital informing me that the girl had expired around 9.30 am. My colleagues in the police and civil official were also shocked to know the fate of the child,” said the SHO.



Manish murder accused roam scot free
Father accuses cops of inaction
Tribune News Service

Ludhiana, August 22
Despite registering a case of murder against friends of a youth allegedly killed and the body thrown into the Sutlej river, the police has not arrested the accused.

Parents of Manish Jain, who got the case registered after moving from pillar to post, alleged today that the accused were threatening the Jains with dire consequences if the case was not withdrawn immediately.

The police had booked Manish's friends, including Tarun Sharma, a resident of Purana Bazar, his mother, Neelam Sharma, and Aditya Jain, a resident of Sardar Nagar, under Sections 366,302,120-B and 34, IPC, some days ago.

Tarun's mother was booked in the case for misleading the family with the information that Manish was admitted to a hospital in Phillaur on the fateful day. later she denied talking to the family.

In his complaint, Manish's father, Mr Rajesh Jain, said Manish had gone with his five friends at 2:30 p.m. that day. He was carrying an amount of Rs 7,000 with him, which he had to pay to workers. ‘‘He told them that he would come back after some time and pay them. But he never turned up, ’’ said Mr Jain.

He said after two hours, his friends came back with Manish's motorcycle. They allegedly told his younger brother Avneesh that there was no fuel in it and Manish would come back later.

But one of his friends spilled the beans. He called up Manish's mother, who was at Delhi that day, and told her that he had drowned.

‘‘I rushed to the city and inquired about Manish. Neelam Sharma kept telling me that my son was safe as he had been rescued and was in hospital. But I could not find him. We informed the police which started a search. At 6 a.m. my son's body was found near Jamalpur Lally village. He had injuries on his head and one of his shoulders were fractured. His body was found at a place where the water was only two feet deep, not enough for a grown up to drown ,’’ he added.

‘‘Despite facing this tragedy, the police is not helping us in any manner. They should have arrested the accused by now. We are already shaken and the authorities do not care, ’’ said Mr Jain.

Mr A.S. Rai, Senior Superintendent of Police, said he had assigned the SP-CityII to conduct an inquiry into the case. As soon as the report was out, the police would swing into action , said the SSP.

Ludhiana, August 22
Despite the orders of the Commissioner of the Municipal Corporation that action be taken within 24 hours against an Inspector of Tehbazaari Department allegedly extorting money from encroachers in Gyaspura, no action has been taken by the civic body so far.

The issue of encroachments had come up at the general house of the Municipal Corporation which met on Thursday last. Mr Hakam Singh Gyaspura, councillor of ward number 21, alleged that an Inspector in his area was allegedly accepting Rs 100 each from rehri and kiosk owners and allowing them to encroach upon the public land.

Mr Gyaspura had named the Inspector in the house. Following the allegations, the city Mayor, Mr Nahar Singh Gill, and Commissioner Vikas Partap had announced that none would be allowed to encroach public land.

Mr Partap had categorically asked Dr Jaswant Singh, Joint Commissioner, who heads the Tehbazaari Department, to look into the allegations immediately and take disciplinary action. He had asked him to get the matter inquired into by that evening.

But four working days have passed and there has been no action. Mr Hakam Singh said no official had visited his area in this regard and the employee concerned was having a field day.

He said he would meet the Commissioner and ask him if there was any progress on the issue.

He said there were a number of rehris and kiosks in his area which were causing traffic bottlenecks. Despite repeated complaints to the authorities, these were not removed. ‘‘Later, I found that these people are being patronised by employees of the department who make thousands everyday by extorting money from them. Nobody can remove them from here now. It is quite obvious, " said Mr Hakam Singh.

Dr Jaswant Singh, Joint Commissioner, was not available for comment.



Kali Kambli Wale remembered
Our Correspondent

Kilaraipur, August 22
Swami Devi Puriji, popularly known as Kali Kambli Wale, who founded Dera Harisar, was remembered by thousands of his devotees who attended four-day ceremonies to mark his 64th death anniversary which ended here at the dera yesterday.

The ceremonies started on August 17 with the holding of classes in surya kirya yoga in the morning and hymn-singing in the evening.

According to Swami Suryendu, a disciple of Swami Budh Puriji, 30 persons were given training in surya kirya yoga. Three of them, Baljit Kaur from Ludhiana, Jagminder Kaur from Malerkotla and Rangu Singh from Jassar village, were given certificates by Swami Budh Puriji, meaning that they were capable of teaching yoga to others.

Breaking with the past traditions, Swami Budh Puriji initiated Sadhvi Yoganjli Chaitanya into the Puri order in the morning yesterday amid recitation of Vedic mantras.

After the initiation ceremony, a congregation of devotees in the sabha hall was addressed by Swami Suryendu Puri, Swami Chinmaya Puri and their guru Swami Budh Puriji.

Renowned bhajan singers, including Ashok Sharma from Delhi, took part in the hymn- singing session that lasted more than two hours.

In his discourse, Swami Budh Puriji dwelt at length on the philosophy of karma and meditation. He explained to the huge gathering that the path of worldly affairs was a circular one whereas the path of meditation was like a steep ascent of a mountain . It was indeed difficult to muster up enough courage for taking the steep path but it was not impossible.

The ceremonies came to a close with the holding of a bhandara where thousands of devotees were served food.

Vets on warpath against privatisation policy
Our Correspondent

Ludhiana, August 22
Taking exception to the policy of privatisation of veterinary services in the state, the Punjab State Veterinary Officers Association (PSVOA) has asked the Rural Development Department to withdraw the advertisement for filling up 400 posts of veterinary pharmacists to be recruited as service providers.

The advertisement violated the rules and regulations of the Veterinary Council of India Act, 1984, the PSVOA asserted.

An emergency meeting of the association, held here today under the chairmanship of Dr Gurcharan Singh Chahal, patron, and Dr Ashok Sharma, state president, observed that the advertisement was contrary to the bylaws of Indian Veterinary Council Act, 1984.

“As per Section 30 of the Act no person other than a registered veterinary practitioner shall practice veterinary medicine in the state, provided that the state government may permit a person holding a diploma or certificate of veterinary supervisor, stockman or stock assistant (by whatever name called) issued by the Directorate of Animal Husbandry of any state, to render under the supervision and direction of a registered veterinary practitioner, minor veterinary services.”

The PSVOA leaders stressed that in accordance with the provisions laid down in the Act, a veterinary pharmacist could not work independently. Even for minor veterinary services, a doctor’s supervision was a prerequisite. In these circumstances, the government would do well to withdraw the advertisement immediately since independent charge of veterinary dispensary could not be given to a diploma-holder veterinary pharmacist, who was meant for minor aid only and that also under the doctor’s supervision.

Dr Chahal maintained that it was the duty of the government to implement the Act in letter and spirit. Echoing similar views, Dr Ashok Sharma said the government intended to grant the designation of service provider both to a veterinary doctor and a pharmacist. Further, the advertisement made no mention of the control of the parent department — Animal Husbandry Department.

He wondered as to how this was possible that two different department officials (animal husbandry and rural development) will work in the veterinary institutions of state.

Dr Paramjit Singh, press secretary of the PSVOA, who is also a member of the Punjab State Veterinary Council, was of the opinion that the advertisement had been published in a hurry, without taking in view all perspectives and legal implications.

The meeting decided to serve a 15-day notice to the government to withdraw the advertisement and take all further steps which should not transgress the statutory provisions.

Depending on the response of the government, the central body of the PSVOA will sit on a day-long dharna in front of the office of the Director, Animal Husbandry, Punjab, at Chandigarh and if the government persisted with its present policy, the vets would have no alternative than to further intensify their agitation.



Club members peeved at being denied entry
Shivani Bhakoo

Ludhiana, August 22
Resentment prevails among members of the prestigious Sutlej club here over being denied entry to the club premises during NIFD function held on August 20 evening. The members not only grumbled but criticised the club functionaries for providing venue and other club facilities to private organisers for holding such functions in which they (the organisers) allegedly entertained their own guests and club members and their dependents were not allowed to enter.

One of the members who did not wish to be quoted said that the club was being “used” by some private organisers. He said, “The club is meant for our entertainment. I have paid about Rs 5 lakh for its membership recently. Being a new member, my young children want to see good programmes organised in the club. But I was shocked when my son came home after half an hour saying he was not permitted to enter the club”.

Another member complained that he was able to get a seat but was disgusted to see the crowd there. He said that all the invitation cards were sent by NIFD people to their guests (students, their parents, sponsors etc) and only those club members, whose mobile numbers were entered in the club’s directory were informed about the function through SMS. “It is one of the prestigious officers’ club in the north. One obviously presumes that crowd would be educated and elite but during the recent function, it seemed as if we were sitting at some public place”, said the member.

One of the office-bearers of the club, on the condition of anonymity, disclosed that the general body meeting in February 2000, held under the presidentship of the then President Mr Arun Goel, had adopted a resolution that anyone could organise a function in the club provided the worth of the function would be at least Rs 10 lakh and club, itself, would issue 100 invitation cards to the organizer to oblige their own people. But in the recent function, about 850 passes were distributed by the NIFD people on their own.

Mr Arvind Gupta, Director NIFD when contacted said that the invitation was from NIFD but the club had deputed their own staff on the gate to check the entries. “We do not know who is the member, who is not. It is the club, which has to see the identity of its members”, he said.

Mr Sanjay Arora, general secretary of the club, said that the function was a great hit and everyone had liked it. He said that he had no knowledge that club members were denied entry. “But the club has definitely gained from this function”, he said. The cultural secretary of the club, Mr Sanjiv Dhanda, however, flatly refused to say something. He said, “Due to personal reasons, I could not attend the function”.

Father blames car owner for death of children
Mahesh Sharma

Mandi Ahmedgarh, August 22
Mystery continues to shroud the death of three minor children whose badly decomposed bodies were found in a locked car in Amarpura Colony here a week ago.

While the father of the deceased has accused the car owner of murdering his sons, the suspect has pleaded innocence.

With the post-mortem report yet to arrive, the police has developed various theories to work on.

Accusing the car owner of murdering his sons, Rinku (7), Kaka (5) and Billu (4), Tapa Nath has demanded a probe into the gory incident. Claiming that the car owner had tried to impress him not to pursue the case, Tapa Nath alleged that someone had murdered his sons.

“I know my sons were naughty, but they were not so wicked that they should be finished”, sighed Tapa Nath. He said the car owner had promised to compensate his “loss” with huge money and a piece of land. “If he is innocent then why did he offer me ‘compensation’. How can I receive consideration for the murder of my three children whom I had brought up with great difficulties”, said Tapa Nath, adding that he would rather die than bargain death of his sons.

Mr Rachhpal Singh Hara, DSP, Malerkotla, said the police had initiated investigation into the case, but was yet to establish a theory on the incident. “As the father of the deceased, the sole source of information for the police, was in shock in the initial stage, we could not intensify the investigation. However, we have been watching activities of all concerned”, claimed Mr Hara.

Final action would be taken after receiving the post-mortem report, he added.

Mr Karamjit Singh, owner of the car, said: “I do not know how the children got into the car”. He denied having offered any compensation for the death of the children to their father.

The children were street urchins and their mother, Anita, had left the family.

The post-mortem report is getting delayed as earlier the doctors at the Civil Hospital had refused to do it given the bad shape of the bodies. A board of three doctors later conducted the post-mortem on the intervention of the SDM.

The children had gone missing on August 12. Their bodies were found in the Opel Astra car (HR 10 B 4353) of insurance agent Karamjit Singh at a piece of land owned by Kulwinder Singh, a transporter. Karmajit Singh said he had parked the car there on August 11. He had told the police that he usually parked his car there.

Tapa Nath has lived in the town with his family for more than a decade. According to him, his wife, who had deserted her family, has been living in Ludhiana for more than three years.

Industry fears labour exodus

Tribune News Service

Ludhiana, August 22
The local industry fears exodus of labour to other states if the ongoing power crisis continues. Industry representatives said due to shortage of electricity supply, production had witnessed a decline and costs were rising. As a result, it was getting increasingly difficult to pay wages to labourers.

"If the crisis is not resolved for another week or so, we fear we might not be able to make payments, which could result in labourers shifting to other states," said Mr Rajnish Ahuja, president, Focal Point Industrial Sheds Association.

While the industry is facing two compulsory weekly offs along with four hours' of daily cuts, besides unscheduled power cuts, the Punjab State Electricity Board (PSEB) has ordered induction furnaces to stop functioning till further orders.

This is not the first time in this season that induction furnaces have faced closure. Last month too they remained closed for a week.

The immediate impact of their closure has been witnessed in steel prices that registered an increase of roughly Rs 1,000-1,500 per tonne within two days. Steel consuming industries like light engineering products manufacturers are facing a shortage in raw material as a result.

Other industries are witnessing a decline in production due to reduced working hours and increase in costs.

"If the situation continues, say for another five days, there would be at least a five to 10 per cent rise in costs, as a result of which we would have to re-assess our situation. Power cuts have already had an impact and this time when in the months of April and May, migrant labourers went to their homes, a lot of them did not come back to work. The situation could turn grave," said Mr Joginder Kumar, president, Federation of Tiny and Small Industries of India.

Costs also increase if industrialists use gensets, which work on full load. "Of the total cost of operation, labour cost is around 10-12 per cent. But if we are not able to give the workers sufficient employment, they will leave. To get them back when the situation normalises, we would have to pay them more," said Mr Kumar.

Industrialists blame the government for not paying attention to the problems being faced by industry on account of the power crisis. " The government boasts of attracting investment through large-scale projects like those of malls, but they forget that it is the small-scale sector which generates heavy employment. There would be massive unemployment if the situation is not improved and it could result in labour unrest," said Mr Chhaber Singh, president, Focal Point Phase VIII Industrial Association.
