Chandigarh, May 26
Once again, city girls have made a clean sweep of the top slots in the CBSE Class X examinations, the result of which was declared today. Kalki Kukreja, a student of Sacred Heart School, Sector 26, topped the tricity with 98 per cent.

“I was very regular at school and tried not to miss my classes. Even if I did, I made sure that the lesson was thoroughly done and redone to my satisfaction.

Also, I don’t think being a bookworm helps. Suspending all other activities begins to weigh on one’s mind and one ends up wasting more time than actually learning anything,” she said.

Harsimran Bhatia of St Anne’s School, Sector 32, who shares second position with Aradhana Gupta of Carmel Convent School, Sector 9, with 97.8 per cent is the daughter of a doctor couple.

She said though she was anxious about appearing for the boards, but she went into the hall content with the feeling that she had to give it her best shot.

Aradhana Gupta is not too happy with the result as she was expecting more marks. Shagun from Sacred Heart School is third with 97.6 per cent. “I want to become a doctor.

I studied throughout the year for three to four hours and participated in co-curricular activities.

I was also a member of the school NCC.

Consistency, I think, is the secret of my success,” she said.

Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, May 26
Professional rivalry led a Sector 45-based taxi driver to allegedly hatch a conspiracy with three others to kill two fellow drivers before dumping their bodies at separate places in Haryana on May 16.

The UT SSP, SS Srivastva, said the accused offered drinks mixed with cigarette ash to the victims. They then killed one of the victims, 35-year-old Devinder Singh of Sohana, at their Sector 52 house and later dumped the body in a rivulet at Shambu near Ambala and burnt it.

The other victim, 29-year-old Amar Lal of Sector 46-D, was taken to Morni hills in a semi-conscious condition, where he was bludgeoned to death with stones before throwing his body into a gorge.

The blind double murder case, however, was detected today when the Chandigarh police arrested a prime accused, 23-year-old Lalit Kumar of Sector 52, who confessed to the murder. Acting on his information, the police arrested his accomplice, 22-year-old Pardeep Kumar, alias Dimple, from Hamirpur in Himachal.

Lalit told the police that he and Dimple, besides two other youngsters from Mogli, and Anil Kumar called Devinder and Amar Lal to his house for drinks in the afternoon of May 16. After several drinks, they took Devinder to a room and hit him on the head with a baton. They then strangled him and locked the body in the room and left Dimple there to guard the room.

Later, they took Amar Lal, who was in semi-conscious and bundled him into the car of Devinder Singh and set off to Morni. They killed him at a secluded place and dumped the body. Thereafter, they took Devinder’s body and disposed it of near Shambu before leaving for the native village of Lalit near Ghaziabad.

The police said Lalit had planned to sell the car there, but they could not sell it for want of proper documents. They reportedly abandoned the car near a barrier on the Ghaziabad-Delhi road.

The SSP said the families of the victims initially lodged a missing persons reports on May 21. Two days later, they lodged a fresh complaint expressing suspicion, following which the police registered a case of kidnapping.

A police officer said the mobile phones of the victims were switched off raising doubt. During interrogation, Lalit told the police that he was at home that day while Dimple had gone on a tour to Himachal. However, Lalit’s mobile phone details showed his location elsewhere, including Shambu, that day.

During further interrogation, he confessed to the crime.

The DSP (crime), KIP Singh, said a police team along with forensic experts took Lalit to Shambhu and recovered the remnants of Devinder’s body. The victim’s skull would be sent to experts for superimposition with the victim’s photographs. The police would also confirm his identity after matching the DNA profile of the bone samples.

The DSP said the Morni police had recovered Amar Lal’s body the next day and after waiting for 48 hours, cremated it. The police had taken photographs of the victim and had his clothes in its custody.

The Morni police had registered a case of murder and had given the description of the victim on telephone, which matched with Amar Lal.

Students give two hoots to traffic norms
G.S. Paul
Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, May 26
All efforts by the Chandigarh Administration to assimilate road safety with education fall flat if one goes by the massive traffic violations by the schoolchildren. It is evident to mention that in 2007, UT administrator Gen SF Rodrigues (retd) had released a book titled “Road Safety-Our Concern”, to be introduced it in the curricula of Class VI onwards to inculcate traffic sense in students.

The book, since 2007, is a part of the students’ syllabus but its practical implications could well be witnessed at the dividing road between Sector 10 and 11.

At about 1 pm, when school hours are over, hoards of students of Government Senior Secondary School (GMSSS), Sector 10, on their bicycles prefer the “wrong-side shortcut”, putting theirs as well as others’ life in danger.

Director Public Instructions (schools) Samwarthak Singh, when apprised of this hazard, admitted that the students needed to be taught traffic norms in connivance with the traffic cops. “As an immediate measure, I will ask the engineering department to put up grills on all dividers which fall near the schools so that children should not take such risks,” he said.

GMSSS-10 principal Indira Beniwal was aware of this serious risk taken by students of her school but said the police too was helpless. “I have brought this matter to the notice of Sector 3 SHO many a times and requested for one or two cops who could manage the traffic during the open and closure hours of the school. But they had showed their inability to help us because of shortage of staff and the noon time being their lunch hours,” she said.

Having different school of thought, JS Cheema, DSP, traffic, said barring few schools, the traffic management found the last place in their agenda. “Keeping in mind the safety of the children, I would monitor such traffic hazard myself. But school management, too, are least bother to take an initiative to let the children know about the consequences of such risky acts,” he said.

“As per the Supreme Court and High Court directions, it is mandatory to make traffic control committee comprising teachers as well as senior school students. Their job would be to regulate the traffic near schools one hour prior to school opening and one hour after the school hours. But I wonder, if all schools follow these guidelines,” he added.

Dr Chug to be Haryana’s DG health

Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, May 26
Dr Veena Chug will now be Haryana, director-general, health service-I. An undertaking to this effect was given by the counsel for the state of Haryana before Justice Ajay Tewari of the Punjab and Haryana High Court, on a petition filed by Dr Chug. She had brought under the high court’s scanner the appointment of Dr Narveer Singh as director-general, health.

Among the grounds she chose to throw a challenge over the appointment were supersession and lack of jurisdiction. She had also claimed “person junior to her has been made the director-general”.

In her petition against the state of Haryana and Dr Narveer Singh, she had asserted the order dated November 26, issued by the state, ought to be quashed as she had been superseded. She had added the order was in contravention to the rules and the laid down law. It was issued without any reason and jurisdiction.

In the petition, Dr Chug had also sought directions to the state to promote her to the post of the director-general.

The petitioner had contended she was eligible to be promoted to the post. Dr Chug had asserted she was, in fact, the senior-most against the cadre post as per the rules. Elaborating, the petitioner said her sole grievance was that she was Additional Director-General, Health. As such, she was the “senior-most contender” and was liable to be promoted after the post fell vacant with the retirement of Dr Avinash Sharma on November 30.

Going into the background of the matter, the counsel for the petitioner contended that Dr Chug’s case for promotion was put up before the Principal Secretary on November 26. It was then forwarded to the minister-in-charge for consideration. From there, the case went to the chief minister’s office.

It was in the chief minister’s office that Dr Narveer Singh was ordered to be appointed as the director-general, health.

Missing Names
EC sends letters to include voters

Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, May 26
The election commission office has devised a new way to reach out to those who could not vote in the recently concluded Lok Sabha elections.

It has sent letters to thousands of city residents whose names have been missing from the voters’ list, as a result of which they could not exercise their franchise.

The recent elections in the city saw a large number of voters who couldn’t cast their ballot as they found their names missing from the voters’ list.

Still, there were others whose names were there in the list but could not vote due to the absence of voters’ ID.

Now, the commission has sent letters to city residents whose names have been missing from the voters’ list.

Sources said thousands of letters along with the form to register for fresh voters have been sent to residents.

The commission has, however, not specified any stipulated time period for returning the duly-filled forms.

Sources claim that this has been done to ensure that no resident who is eligible to vote is left out.

Though the letters were despatched some time ago, only 45 forms duly filled by the voters have been returned to the commssion office so far.

However, officials at the commission office maintained that in due course of time they would start getting more forms.

“We are expecting as many forms as we have sent. It will just take some time but we hope it will work,” said an official on the condition of anonymity.

The city recorded a record 65 per cent voting during the elections. Poll observers maintained that the percentage could have been higher had those who could not vote due to various discrepancies been able to excercise their franchise.
