Pre-poll Fury
A free-for-all at Students’ Centre
SOPU, PUSU activists clash; 3 injured

Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, August 2
With more than a month to go for the student council elections, Panjab University witnessed pre-election fervour and fury with activists of SOPU and PUSU clashing at the Students’ Centre today.

What started out as a heated exchange of words between student activists from both unions, soon developed into fisticuffs and abuses. The fight resulted in a PUSU activist, Tejpal Cheema, getting seriously injured and being rushed to the General Hospital, Sector 16.

SOPU activists also brought in two students, Nitin Rathee and Ankush, who had allegedly been injured by PUSU activists in a scuffle.

Allegations and counter-allegations are being filed by both unions with each blaming the other for starting the fight.

What made matters worse was that the police refused to intervene in the matter. Eyewitnesses say when the PCR vehicle stationed there was approached for help, the police personnel refused. They said they were not there to get into these fights.

When questioned, the police, however, refuted the allegations, blaming the university security for not helping the students.

Just before the scuffle, SOPU activists, led by the president, Harpreet Singh Multani, staged a protest at the Students’ Centre to draw the attention of the authorities to the issue of the high hostel rent.

Multani submitted a memorandum to the DSW, Prof Naval Kishore, in this regard. The DSW promised to look into the matter and the protest broke off, only to be followed a short while later by a scuffle.

The police took notice of it and the SHO of the Sector 11 police station, Inspector Ramesh Chand, said late in the evening that they were recording the statement of both parties and while Rathee and Ankush had suffered minor injuries, the medical report of Cheema was still awaited.

Meanwhile, several students who witnessed the fight were of the opinion that the only way to ensure safe and injury-free elections were to implement the Lyngdoh committee recommendations.

The SHO of Sector 11 police station said a cross-case had been registered against both parties. Ajay Pal, Navjot and Sharanjit of PUSU and Dalvir Singh Goldy and Gurpreet Maan of SOPU were still absconding. The police is conducting raids to arrest them.

Bonnet ride, filmy style
Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, August 2
Sarat Ram, a constable with the Chandigarh traffic police, was hit by a speeding vehicle when he tried to stop it. Undaunted, Sarat Ram clung on to the wipers of the vehicle for over a kilometre.

According to an eyewitness, the incident took place at around 1 pm when the traffic constable signalled a Tata Safari (Pb-32-G-0032) coming from Sector 20 to stop as its driver was using a mobile phone. The vehicle also had dark films on the windows. Instead of stopping the vehicle, he speeded it up.

The constable came in front of the vehicle in order to stop it, but he was hit by the vehicle. The constable landed on the bonnet and caught hold of the wipers. The driver did not stop even then, instead he began to drive in a zigzag manner to make him loosen his hold.

The driver even managed to negotiate a busy roundabout on Madhya Marg with the cop still on the bonnet. When the vehicle reached Khalsa College, Sector 26, it rammed into a stationary vehicle. It was then that the constable fell off the vehicle and the driver sped away.

The police failed to trace the vehicle till late in the night. A case of attempt to murder, kidnapping and obstructing a government servant from discharging his duty has been registered against the unidentified driver.

Tahar divides Bar
Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, August 2
The general house meeting of the High Court Bar Association today was supposed to discuss ways to defuse the crisis facing the Bar post the Tahar Singh-episode, but ironically, the meeting resulted in another crisis as a junior-senior divide came to the fore. There were differences over the course of action to be followed.

The proceedings were progressing peacefully but took a U-turn when Harvinder Singh Baidwan rued the alleged humiliation heaped upon him in Justice Uma Nath Singh’s court and said the judge spared no one and was specially rude to juniors.

What ruffled many feathers was his advice to “shun sycophancy and step up the tempo of the struggle, which only a few members of the Bar were capable of”.

This infuriated senior member of the Bar, G.K. Chatrath, who took his comment as an oblique assault on him, resulting in a melee of sorts. Things got serious with supporters from both sides hurling allegations on one another.

Some young lawyers were heard asking “which senior lawyer came to juniors’ rescue when they were being humiliated?”

Chatrath had thanked Chief Justice Vijender Jain for his positive approach and had asked the Bar to act with reason and not passion alone, lest they go astray.

Bar association’s senior executive member S.D. Sharma and general secretary Onkar Singh Batalvi tried to dispel the impression of the junior-senior divide and stressed on the need to stand united.

Another row erupted when the association president, Anmol Rattan Sidhu, proposed to constitute an 11-member committee to decide the future course of action.

As he was announcing the names, Anupam Gupta and some other lawyers shot down his proposal and asked what was the need for such a committee when an executive committee already existed.

Amid loud protests, Sidhu finally gave it up and it was decided that the previous resolution of the association seeking the transfer of the judge and the boycott of his court would stand.

Earlier in the meeting, Anupam Gupta spoke about the need to wake up the Bench to the urgency of the situation. He lamented that though there were many ways to withdraw work from Justice Uma Nath Singh, no action was being taken.

“Let us take a huge delegation and seek an appointment with the Chief Justice of India. We should tell him how we had been bullied and terrorised,” he said.

H.S. Gill, too, blasted the unreasonable order by the judge.

J.S. Toor spoke on the lunacy Act and told the gathering that the Act had been repealed. As such, there existed no mental asylums in the country but only psychiatric hospitals.

He said Article 330, CrPC, stipulated that before deciding upon insanity, a person should be subjected to examination by a district medical officer.

There are differences between junior and senior lawyers over the course of action to be followed in the Tahar case.

Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, August 2
At least 30 companies have joined the Rajiv Gandhi Chandigarh Technology Park and there are scores of others waiting for their chance to get in.

This was said by Gen S.F.Rodrigues, Governor of Punjab and UT administrator, while addressing the e-Revolution 2007 conference which commenced here today.

General Rodrigues underlined the potential of 65,000 IT professional jobs with three times more opportunities of subsidiary jobs. He said the park had grown as a global project and a major attraction for MNCs as "we have always adopted a transparent approach, strictly adhering to the procedures and processes as per rule of law and laid down time limit."

"There are vast opportunities of growth and employment in this sector and we have to upgrade the knowledge and competence of our people through the tools of IT and education for meeting the requirements", he added.

Srinath Batni, director and group head (Worldwide Customer Delivery), Infosys Technology, said knowledge was the growth driver in today's world and contributing immensely to the GDP of economies even without investing proportionately more into the infrastructures.

Neerja Verma, ex-senior vice-president of RMSI, underlined the need for building appropriate eco-system within the organisation which could help the human resources to grow. This requires collaboration of all stake holders which included the businesses, the academia and the society.

Meenal Jadhav, vice-president of Grow Talent, said the capacity building was the greatest challenge for every organisation. D.P. Singh, VP (Strategic, HR) I M Daksh, explaining the management of people in a cross-cultural global workplace, said it required consistent and constant training of workforce to create a system of shared values.

Partap Agarwal, co-founder, IDS Infotech, chairing the session on the potential of the web mentioned how a knitting factory in Mohali is delivering customised T-shirts to people around the globe just through the online business, and one could track the train timings on the net, besides the community networks, virtual universities, and virtual offices that are happening on the web world.

Major trouble
‘Ethiopian escapade’ puts officer in soup
Vijay Mohan
Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, August 2
The Army has ordered disciplinary proceedings against a Major from the Military Intelligence (MI), who was reportedly caught in the company of two Ethiopian girls at his New Delhi residence.

Sources in Army Headquarters reveal that charges against him include contacting the Ethiopian girls without due authority and taking them to his official residence, possessing arms and ammunition without a licence and without authority and several weapons and conducting an anti-narcotics operation without authority and without co-opting civil police.

The summary of evidence (SOE), a precursor to a possible trial by the general court martial, is in the process of being recorded at the Rajputana Rifles Regimental Centre in Delhi. The final decision to convene a trial will depend on the review of the SOE

A court of inquiry presided by Col Inderjit Singh, commanding officer of an infantry battalion, had held the officer blameworthy of his acts of omission and commission, following which the Army initiated the disciplinary action.

The incident had occurred in March, when the officer was officiating as the commanding officer of an intelligence unit based at the Army headquarters. The Army had maintained that the girls, identified as Samravit Bekele and Rahel Girma, were part of a secret operation and had been picked up by the MI for questioning in a drug smuggling case.

In their statements to the police the girls, according to documents pertaining to the case, had denied any kind of abuse and said that they had been only questioned. Being foreigners, they were not compelled to undergo medical tests. Though their passports were valid till 2011, their visas to visit India had expired.

According to the Army, anti-narcotic operations by the MI are not unprecedented and these were undertaken to cultivate sources for garnering information. MI officers claim that several successful operations claimed by the police have been because of inputs by them.

The sources said the officer had maintained that a member of a Delhi University students’ organisation had introduced him to the girls. Thereafter, while conducting the operation they met another person, who had given him a packet which he later found contained arms and ammunition. The weapons listed in documents include two pistols, about 150 rounds of different types of ammunition, a grenade and a detonator.

Shopkeepers given ultimatum to remove encroachments
Tribune News Service

Panchkula, August 2
The enforcement wing of the Estate Office, Haryana Urban Development Authority (HUDA), today gave the shopkeepers of the Sector 7 market one more day to remove encroachments.

The grace period was given after a delegation of the market association, at a meeting with estate officer S.P. Arora, sought time to convince the shopkeepers to clear encroachments in the marketplace. Sources said they assured the EO that they would cooperate with the enforcement staff and allow the removal of items of those shopkeepers who did not pay heed to their appeal.

Yesterday, the enforcement staff had to return empty-handed in an anti-encroachment drive in the Sector 7 market. Though the staff had issued a warning to the shopkeepers to remove all their items from the corridors, the shopkeepers joined hands to prevent the staff from taking away fridges and racks of chips stacked in the corridors.

The shopkeepers had alleged that the staff was taking away items in corridors without issuing proper receipts for the same.

After yesterday’s attempt to remove encroachments failed, it was finally resolved that a second round of talks would be held between the estate officer and the association to work out a way.

25 acres earmarked for nurseries
Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, August 2
The administration has proposed to rehabilitate private nurseries on 25 acres of land adjoining Dadu Majra here. It is being viewed that the land will be ideal for relocating the nurseries which had been displaced after the administration took possession of the land in Manimajra.

Though the final outcome of the proposal is not known, the issue has been discussed at the highest level. A demand of the nursery owners to be rehabilitated on 35 acres of land in Manimajra has not found favour with the administration.

Ashutosh Jagga of Phulwari nursery said the city had been conceptualised as a green city and a clean city. Even in metros, nurseries were located in urban areas.

“If the administration can come up with schemes to cater to the needs of the housing and trade, arising out of influx of migrants and local population, it can come up with a scheme for the nurseries too”, said a florist.

A senior official said it was difficult to rehabilitate the nurseries in Manimajra as the land had been planned for further expansion of the IT park. Possession of the land vacated from the nurseries had been given to the Municipal Corporation, which has already done planning of the area. The possession of the land was taken after the nursery owners lost battle in the Supreme Court.

After the orders of the apex court, the owners of the nurseries have given a representation to the UT administrator, Gen S F Rodrigues (retd) seeking rehabilitation of their nurseries.

Park in a mess

I am a resident of Sector 28-A. I want to bring to your notice the fact that the park in front of my house (park No. 2) is in deplorable condition. It is not maintained and full of sticks and stones. The weeds have not been removed, there are glass pieces on the ground and the grass is uncut. There are pieces of paper lying around. In short, the place is filthy.

To make matters worse, the park is being used as a car-parking space. Several cars are parked here. As a result, the children of our locality do not have a place to play in the evenings. Such basic facilities should not be denied us. I request the municipal council to take notice of this situation and do the needful.

The police today booked Chandigarh-resident Atul for assaulting security personnel of the Mahender Vihar Society (Army Flats), Sector 4, Mansa Devi, during a late-night visit to the housing society.

In his complaint to the police, Raj Mohan Singh said he was on duty on the intervening night of July 31 and August 1. While he and another guard Mukesh were on a round of the society, the third guard, Ajay, said that a person in a car (CH 03 Z 8168) was trying to enter the society forcibly.

On reaching there, they found that the car driver, later identified as Atul, was accompanied by another man. Both were in inebriated conditions and were frantically knocking at the door of a house in P-Block of the society.

Mohan said when he tried to find out who they wanted to meet, a fight ensued. “They picked up a flower pot and hit me,” he said.

The complainant added that after the scuffle, the duo threatened him, maintaining that they were “big men”. Later, the two tried to escape in their car as the security guards tried to stop them. This again ended up in a scuffle. Here, too, some flower pots were broken by the accused. They even threatened the guard with dire consequences if they said a word about the incident to anybody.

Meanwhile, one of the guards called up the president and the secretary of the society, who immediately arrived on the scene. The guard, in his complaint, maintained that on seeing the two men, they asked the guards to let them go since they were “big people”, after which the men drove away.

Mohan added that Atul, along with another man, came to his residence yesterday afternoon and again threatened him, asking him to keep his mouth shut. He said that he had to muster up a lot of courage to come and register his complaint with the police.
