Ginni Preet, the victim Chandigarh, February 13
A 27-year-old executive with a private bank died while his two colleagues, including a girl, were critically injured in a freak car accident near the Sector 35/36 small roundabout late last night. The deceased has been identified as Ginni Preet Singh. He was sitting on the front seat of the car, while his friend Sumit was driving the vehicle. Their colleague Swati, hailing from Manali and staying as a PG in Sector 35, was sitting on the rear seat when the mishap occurred.

The mishap took place at 1.30 am when the three were travelling in a white Indica Vista and took a turn near the Kisan Bhawan roundabout. The car, which was reportedly at a high speed, hit a road berm and then rammed into a tree near the roundabout. The impact of the accident was so strong that the car was completely damaged in the mishap.

The police reached the spot and had a tough time removing the three injured from the mangled remains of the car. The injured, who were lying in a pool of blood in the car, were taken to the PGI by the police.

Ginni Preet, a resident of Abohar, succumbed to his injuries at the PGI while his friend Sumit Pal was taken to Fortis Hospital, where he has been admitted. The condition of Swati was later stated to be out of danger. The three were identified on the basis of the identity cards recovered from them.

Some water bottles, identity cards and packets of namkeen were found in the car. The police suspect that the driver was under the influence of liquor. The car was being driven recklessly and the driver probably lost control over it, resulting in the accident.

Ginni had completed his graduation in Abohar and came to Chandigarh for a bank job two years ago. He is survived by his parents and a younger brother. Ginni's death has left his father, Gurpreet Singh, a hotelier, shattered. “My son had big dreams; everything has been lost now,” Gurpreet Singh said.

A 22-year-old woman constable with the UT police committed suicide by hanging herself with a dupatta from a ceiling fan at her rented accommodation in Mani Majra today. The constable, Sonam, was recruited in 2011. She hailed from Mahendragarh in Haryana. Her family has been informed about her death.

While no suicide note was found from the spot, "I am sorry" was found written on her left hand. The police said the constable was depressed as her family had refused to marry her to her lover. The police are also probing other angles in the case.

Constable Sonam, who was earlier posted at the control room, was recently posted at the Dhanas police post. She was to join duty at 3 pm today.

Sonam used to stay in a rented accommodation with her roommate Rekha, also a constable with the UT police.

The incident came to light when Rekha returned home after completing her duty at 1 pm and found the front and the rear doors of the room bolted from inside. Repeated knocks at the doors elicited no response. Rekha finally managed to open the door by sneaking her hand through a side window.

She was shocked to find Sonam's body hanging from the ceiling fan. The police was called, which shifted the body to the mortuary of Government Multi-Speciality Hospital in Sector 16 where the postmortem will be conducted tomorrow.

Chandigarh, February 13
In a major relief to consumers, the Joint Electricity Regulatory Commission (JERC) has directed the Chandigarh Electricity Department to pay interest to them on advance consumption demand (ACD) charges.

The commission directed the department to pay interest at the bank rate on the amount of ACD charges from the date of implementation of the Electricity Act, 2003, or the date of payment of ACD charges by the consumers, whichever was later.

The decision was taken by the commission following a petition filed by the Chandigarh Industrial Area Tenants Association (CITA).

Recently, the department had levied ACD charges in electricity bills. Under the charges, the consumers of all categories were told to deposit the average of the past two bills, which ran from Rs 1,000 to Rs 5,000, based on the consumption.

In its petition, the CITA had demanded the quashing of a public notice of October 10, 2013, issued by the department in which it had asked the consumers to deposit ACD charges. The association had also demanded 18 per cent interest on the security deposited by the consumers from the time of getting the electricity connection till the present assessment year and to frame a policy regarding the installation of prepaid meters.

UT Superintending Engineer (Electricity) MP Singh said he was yet to see the copy of the order. He said they would follow the directions of the JERC.

UT told to frame policy on pre-paid meters

Recently, the JERC had issued directions to the Electricity Department to install pre-paid meters for willing consumers. Though the commission had issued the directions, there was no system in place to install the pre-paid meters.

In the order issued today, the commission has directed the department to approve a list of manufacturers of pre-paid meters and get a software and frame policy on pre-paid meters within six months of the earlier orders, issued on November 20, 2013. The department has been directed to accept ACD charges from the petitioners' association in the form of a bank guarantee. There are 2,09,602 power consumers in the city.

Even 40 years after their marriage, Sarin likes to express his love for his wife on such occasions.

Mohinder Kaur (90), a resident of Chandigarh, blushes when she shares a light moment with her husband, Kartar Singh Bawa (93) even after 70 years of being married.

Their love story began before Independence and partition and they tied the knot on February 13, 1944. This year, their family has decided to celebrate the journey of their love on their wedding anniversary.

Students denounce hooliganism
True love is hard to find, and so are true lovers. With romance in the air, The Tribune correspondent Deepankar Sharda talks to some students on the Panjab University campus for their take on Valentine’s Day.

Since long, I haven’t celebrated this day. Earlier, I used to accompany my friends and go for a long geri. This year, I am thinking of celebrating it in a different way. However, I am not sure how successful it would be


If you love someone truly then every day becomes a Valentine’s Day. The day is special for having fun. But for lovers everyday is full of romance and love

— Shefali

Valentine’s Day is just another day to feel happy about. To express love, if pure, one doesn’t need to wait for some special day. True love can be expressed at any hour, any second, and any day. So, I don’t see much craze on this day

— Preet

The plans would remain usual. Roaming around with friends and enjoying the day. I think the day should be celebrated in a good spirit without disturbing others. I will suggest to all the youngsters that one should enjoy the spirit of the day rather than spoiling it

— Harvir Sandhu

This is my first Valentine’s Day in Chandigarh and I am all excited to visit the Geri Route tomorrow. I have heard a lot about the V-Day celebrations in city

— Amritpal Singh

I will celebrate this day when I will meet my soul mate. I wish, I could meet her sometime soon, so as to enjoy the day meant for young lovers

— Gurpreet Singh

I will go by the saying, ‘when you love, love every hour’. Roaming around and encouraging hooliganism is not the right way to celebrate the day. True lovers always love with silent feelings. So, there is not much hype about the day

— Kawaljeet

I will like to sit and read books. Love is not roaming on roads with loud music on and troubling others. One should maintain the dignity, otherwise there is no use of celebrating the day. Valentine’s Day is special to feel, rather than celebrating
