Sunanda Pushkar: Sunanda Pushkar death: SC notice to Delhi Police on Subramanian Swamy's plea for SIT probe - The Economic Times

NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court today sought the response of the Delhi Police on a plea filed by BJP leader Subramanian Swamy seeking an SIT probe into the death of Congress MP Shashi Tharoor's wife Sunanda Pushkar . A bench of Justices Arun Mishra and A M Khanwilkar issued a notice to the police on Swamy's plea, leaving open the question of maintainability of the petition. "Keeping the question of maintainability open, let a notice be issued," the bench said. The court was hearing Swamy's appeal against the Delhi High Court's October 26 verdict dismissing his plea for a probe into Pushkar's death by a court-monitored Special Investigation Team (SIT). Pushkar was found dead under mysterious circumstances in a suite of a five-star hotel in Delhi on the night of January 17, 2014. The high court had last year rejected Swamy's plea for a court-monitored SIT probe into Pushkar's death and termed his public interest litigation (PIL) a "textbook example of a political interest litigation". Swamy, in his plea before the high court, had alleged that the police had "botched up" the probe and accused Tharoor of "interfering" in the investigation as a minister in the erstwhile UPA regime and later. The high court had chastised the BJP leader and his lawyer, who was a co-petitioner before it, for making "sweeping allegations" in the petition against Tharoor and the Delhi Police without giving any basis for such accusations. The high court had said that Swamy ought to have mentioned his political affiliation as well as that of Tharoor in his plea as these facts were important to the adjudication of the case. 0 Comments

Chris Lynn to not undergo surgery, hopeful to play in IPL, says manager

Chris Lynn’s IPL participation under cloud Australian explosive batsman suffered yet another injury setback on Wednesday after he dived to stop a ball from going towards boundary in the T20I tri-series final against New Zealand at Eden Park in Auckland. The 27-year old, who earlier had a surgery in his left shoulder, dislocated his right shoulder after he tried to reach the ball with his right arm to protect his left shoulder, but jarred the arm on the surface. Later it was confirmed that Lynn’s right shoulder had popped out of the socket. But the right-hand batsman can now take a respite from the fact that he will no longer have to undergo another surgery on the right shoulder and may be fit to return for Indian Premier League in April. Lynn, who pulled out of Pakistan Super League due to injury, took the opinions of the specialists in Brisbane and is expected to start rehabilitation process of his shoulder after the joint settles down. According to Lynn’s manager Stephen Atkinson, the doctors have given him a positive result. “Chris got a positive result from the doctors who said he will not need surgery. Chris is disappointed at missing the Pakistan Super League but he will be making every effort to play in the Indian Premier League and, if selected, the five one-dayers for Australia in England in June,” Atkinson was quoted as saying by Cricket Australia. Cricket Australia Sports Science Sports Medicine Manager Alex Kountouris issued a statement that Lynn will undergo rehabilitation. “Chris has undergone scans which confirmed some of the expected signs of a shoulder dislocation including bleeding in the joint along with some cartilage and ligament damage. After consultation with a specialist, at this stage we have confirmed that Chris does not need to undergo stabilisation surgery on his shoulder. He will now undergo extensive rehabilitation to give us a better idea of how his shoulder will cope with return to normal function, with a view to being available to play in the IPL and the short-form series in the UK in June,” Kountouris added. He further added that Lynn’s return to the national squad will become clear later on. “We will have a better understanding of how possible this will be in a few weeks, once we know how he is responding to the rehabilitation.” Lynn, who was bought for Rs 9.5 crore by Kolkata Knight Riders, also played for the same franchise but missed out on a few matches after suffering a shoulder injury while attempting to pouch a catch during Knight Riders’ game against Mumbai Indians. In In 12 IPL matches, he has scored 384 runs at an average of 38.4 and a whopping strike rate of 158.02. He played for Brisbane Heat in the Big Bash League 2017 in December, and compiled 136 runs at an average of over 45.

Shelter home girls, including Rohingya kids, to walk ramp in fashion show in Kolkata

Shelter home girls, including Rohingya kids, to walk ramp in fashion show in Kolkata Shelter home girls, including Rohingya kids, to walk ramp in fashion show in Kolkata The clothes and accessories to be worn by the girls aged between 10 and 16 years have been designed by their fellow inmates, who are currently being trained by Bibi Russell, a Bangladesh-based international designer. Written by Ravik Bhattacharya | Kolkata | Published: February 23, 2018 10:32 am The girls are the inmates of the state’s largest shelter home — Liluah Girls’ Home, and some of them are victims of human trafficking. (Source: REUTERS/Representational) Thirty-three girls of a state-run shelter home, including six Rohingya children, will walk the ramp wearing designer clothes of ‘Bangali’ brand, set up by Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee , for a fashion show scheduled next month in Kolkata. The girls are the inmates of the state’s largest shelter home — Liluah Girls’ Home, and some of them are victims of human trafficking. The clothes and accessories to be worn by the girls aged between 10 and 16 years have been designed by their fellow inmates, who are currently being trained by Bibi Russell, a Bangladesh-based international designer. The fashion show to be organised by the government is scheduled on March 7 at Uttirno, a state auditorium in Kolkata. “Our chief minister told us to do something so that the girls (at the Liluah home) get economically empowered. The aim behind the initiative is positive skill development, apart from reintegration of these children into the mainstream. This initiative is unique in India, where girls, some of whom are survivors of trafficking, or who are in need of care and protection, will participate in a fashion show. They will showcase apparels and accessories made by their fellow inmates at the home,” said Ananya Chakraborty, chairperson West Bengal Commission for Child Rights. The girls will walk the ramp in the backdrop of live Bengali music at the fashion show. A Bengali band, Surma Dohar, has also been roped in for the show. Embroidery work, products made with material of gamcha (a trademark of Bibi Russell), Tant sarees, among others, will be showcased. “Our chief minister has designed the logo for ‘Bangali’ brand. Through such fashion shows, the products of the brand will also be showcased and marketed through Biswa Bangla stalls. A product line is being prepared for that,” added Chakraborty. State women and child development minister Sashi Panja said the fashion show is a noble initiative. “We have revived the handlooms, which lay defunct at the shelter home. We have also roped in Bibi Russell, who has been training the inmates. Artisans of Bengali Tant sarees have also been asked to help. This is going on since last year. Girls at the home are being trained to make apparels and jewellery. This will develop their skills. The show is being planned under the guidance of Russell,” she said. Since April, last year, Russell has been training the inmates at the Liluah home. According to officials of West Bengal Commission for Child Rights, after the products of the brand are sold through Biswa Bangla stalls, part of the proceeds will be given to the inmates. At present, there are over 200 women and girls lodged at the Liluah home, including 16 Rohingya girls. Mamata has vehemently opposed the Centre’s move to send Rohingya refugees back. In public rallies, she had called for a more humane approach to the issue, stating that not all refugees are terrorists. At present, there are around 44 Rohingya refugees lodged at various jails in Bengal. For all the latest Kolkata News , download Indian Express App Tags: No Comments. Most Read

After Jaspal Atwal row, Canadian journalist, a staunch Modi critic, part of Justin Trudeau’s delegation: Another thorn in India-Canada ties

After Jaspal Atwal row, Canadian journalist, a staunch Modi critic, part of Justin Trudeau’s delegation: Another thorn in India-Canada ties

Tweet As Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Canadian counterpart Justin Trudeau will meet in New Delhi today, yet another fact has come to light which might serve a blow to relations between the two countries. A Canadian journalist, who had protested against Modi's visit to Canada in 2015, is part of Trudeau's delegation, reported The Indian Express . The report surfaces even as controversy rages over invitation to Jaspal Atwal a convicted Khalistani terrorist. Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau with his family members at the Akshardham Temple in Gandhinagar. PTI Manvir Singh Saini is the journalist who is part of Trudeau's media delegation. In 2015, pictures of Saini holding banners which said "Modi is a Terrorist" had gone viral during the prime minister's visit to the country. Ties between India and Canada have shown signs of tension ever since Trudeau began his visit to India. First off, Modi not receiving his Canadian counterpart Justin Trudeau at the airport, a courtesy he extended to some world leaders in the past, had triggered speculation in Canada that it was a snub to him for the rising Sikh radicalism in that country. Commentators in Canadian media had highlighted that Union Minister of State for Agriculture Gajendra Shekhawat received Trudeau at the Delhi airport when he arrived on a seven-day India visit on Saturday evening and contrasted it against Modi himself receiving several world leaders at the airport. On official state visits to India, PM Modi personally greets and welcomes the Israeli PM, UAE Crown Prince and US President. For PM Trudeau, he sends a low-ranking official. “Canada is back” pic.twitter.com/ezsMtFTPzr — Candice Malcolm (@CandiceMalcolm) February 17, 2018 There were stories in Canadian media that said Trudeau's perceived support for Sikh separatists may be the reason for the "snub". The Sikhs in Canada wield significant political clout and Trudeau's Cabinet has four Sikh members. The sources said the prime minister received around five leaders at the airport during the last three-and-half years which included the Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu, former US president Barack Obama, Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, and Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan twice. However, government sources had strongly rejected the speculation , insisting normal diplomatic protocol has been extended to Trudeau. They had also expressed surprise over the Canadian side preferring to schedule Trudeau's official engagements in Delhi at the fag end of the tour as against the normal practice of having bilateral meetings during the first part of such visits. The sources had said it is quite unusual for a visiting dignitary to slot important talks towards the end of a visit, besides setting aside little time for official engagements. A section of the Canadian media had also talked about the Indian prime minister's absence during Trudeau's visit to Gujarat, Modi's home state. "We have own set of parameters for measuring importance," an official had said while calling the criticism by Canadian media "unfounded". The sources had said there was no "substantive content" in Trudeau's programme in Gujarat for which the prime minister's presence was required. A controversy erupted on Thursday when Canadian high commissioner Nadir Patel invited Atwal for a dinner which he was hosting for the visiting Trudeau and his delegation. Photographs of Atwal with Trudeau's wife Sophie and Canadian minister Amarjeet Sohi at an event in Mumbai on 20 February went viral.

He was convicted of attempt to murder of Punjab minister Malkiat Singh Sidhu in Vancouver in 1986. After uproar in the Canadian media, the invite was cancelled . "The high commission has rescinded Atwal’s invitation. We do not comment of matters relating to the prime minister's security," PTI quoted the Canadian high commission as saying. The Atwal controversy came as the Trudeau family’s ornate traditional Indian attire raised eyebrows , with the prime minister at one point donning formal wear typically worn by bridegrooms. Is it just me or is this choreographed cuteness all just a bit much now? Also FYI we Indians don’t dress like this every day sir, not even in Bollywood. pic.twitter.com/xqAqfPnRoZ — Omar Abdullah (@OmarAbdullah) February 21, 2018 An Ottawa-based advocacy group, Canada Taxpayers Federation, also said: "While it is understood that a prime minister will have to travel frequently, the proportion of time being spent actually meeting foreign counterparts on this trip does not suggest a good use of public money. A week is a long time for a prime minister to spend visiting one country, and a half of a day out of eight is very little official business." And even though Trudeau did eventually hold a meeting with Punjab chief minister Amarinder Singh, Canada initally did have cause for worry after Amarinder, speaking to Outlook in February, had said a "foreign hand" was responsible for fomenting unrest and reviving Khalistani extremism in Punjab. "On the face of it, there seem to be Khalistani sympathisers in Trudeau's Cabinet," he had alleged. In 2017, Singh had also accused Canadian defence minister Harjit Sajjan — part of Trudeau's delegation — of being sympathetic to Sikh separatists. However, when Trudeau met Singh on Wednesday, he assured him that his country does not support separatism in India or elsewhere even as he received a list of nine Canada-based operatives allegedly involved in promoting radicalism.

Donald Trump Jr dubs US press a disaster, says India’s is fairer

Donald Trump Jr dubs US press a disaster, says India’s is fairer

MUMBAI: With Donald Trump Jr, the US President’s eldest son, going around India hoping to sell luxury apartments worth a billion dollars, the American media has not taken very kindly to his trip, their concerns centering on the family using the President’s status to further property sales. Little wonder then that he uses an interaction with TOI to dispel that notion. “The other day I was asked a question at an interview: ‘What separates India from some of the emerging worlds you’ve been to?’ I’ve been lucky to see it all and gave a heartfelt answer about the spirit of the Indian people, even with the disclaimer of understanding some of the poverty that’s there. Of course, Washington Post ran with, ‘ Trump likes poor people because they smile!’ + That’s not what it is. The aura I see here and fell in love with, I don’t see in other parts of the world.” Trump's election has cost his firm millions, says son Donald Trump Jr The Trump Organization had built a huge pipeline of deals through intense marketing and negotiations over a decade. But they cannot be inked now. "It costs us quite a bit of money in terms of lost opportunity," Donald Trump Jr told TOI in an interview. As a corollary, he adds "The Indian press is rough at times too but perhaps a little more fair than the US press which is a total disaster! Anything I say can and will be manipulated to suit their narrative,” he laughs, but maintains: “My statement stands.” Looking natty in a white shirt and blue tie and suit with a red tika blazing on his forehead, the 40-year-old executive VP of the Trump empire soon settles down for a quick yet unhurried chat. He has just attended a ribbon-cutting ceremony atop the 78-storey Trump Tower in central Mumbai which will be ready for occupation next year. The luxury market in Mumbai may have been stagnant for the past five years, but Donald Trump Jr says reforms in the real estate market will weed out the bad actors and the industry will bounce back. “I think it’s a natural reaction to some of the reforms that have taken place. To me, it’s great because those things were necessary. There was a negative perception about developers because they would make a promise here and deliver something very different, if they delivered anything at all. That’s a big problem because consumer confidence gets shot. It was a blight on the whole industry,” he says. Reforms over the last few years, he adds, may have created some difficulties for developers, “but it doesn’t for those who have the right intentions”. Don Jr is not a newcomer to Indian shores, having made seven jaunts over the past decade. With India turning out to be The Trump Organization’s biggest international market with four real estate projects underway, the country’s “understanding of brand and luxury” he feels has made it a big draw. His father is never out of the conversation for long even as his minders warn against asking him any political questi-ons. Junior admits missing their father-son moments, “I don’t get to see him nearly enough. He’s incredibly busy. Given all that he has to deal with on a daily basis, for me to just call him and say, ‘Hi, how are you?’ seems a bit trite,” says the executive VP of the Trump empire. Taking over the reins from his father wasn’t simple but the elections eased him into the role, he claims. “The campaign frankly was a naturally good transition. While we were very active on that, it was a two-year process when we (he and his brother Eric) started handling existing assets and reorganizing the business.” Trump Jr who will make his journey back home on his private jet this weekend, rues not having had the chance to explore the country yet. “I’m not so much for tourist attractions but getting off the beaten path is what I must do soon.” But there’s one thing that this American can do, that many he brags, cannot. “I can handle spice,” he beams. “Especially when they go: No, no, no… you’re an American you can’t, I’m like I promise I can. Oftentimes, better than the locals.”

Nirav Modi: PNB fraud: ED freezes deposits, shares worth Rs 44cr of Nirav Modi group

Nirav Modi: PNB fraud: ED freezes deposits, shares worth Rs 44cr of Nirav Modi group

Expanding its probe into the alleged PNB fraud , the ED today summoned Nirav Modi 's wife Ami for questioning even as the agency froze bank deposits and shares worth about Rs 44 crore of the diamantaire. The Enforcement Directorate(ED) also seized a huge collection of imported watches from a workshop location linked to the billionaire diamond jewellery businessman. The ED officials said they have put fresh freeze orders on bank accounts containing Rs 30 crore and shares worth Rs 13.86 crore of the Nirav Modi group under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act ( PMLA ). Besides summoning Modi's wife Ami, an American citizen, the central probe agency has called his uncle and Gitanjali Gems promoter Mehul Choksi for questioning in the case on February 26 at the ED office in Mumbai, they said. Modi, who failed to keep his date for questioning yesterday, has also been issued summons to appear before the agency on the same day. The agency seized a large collection of imported watches, 176 steel almirahs, 158 corrugated boxes and 60 other containers after searches at multiple locations linked to Modi over the last week, officials said. The ED, yesterday had seized deposits, shares and luxury cars worth over Rs 100 crore from the businesssman and his group. Fresh summonses were issued yesterday against Modi after he failed to appear before the agency. Modi had cited the temporary suspension of his passport and pending business issues as reasons for his non-appearance. The total seizure by the ED in the case is now over Rs 5,870 crore, officials claimed, adding it is being independently valued. Modi, Choksi and others are being investigated by the ED and other probe agencies after the fraud recently came to light, following a complaint by the Punjab National Bank( PNB ) that they allegedly cheated the nationalised bank to the tune of Rs 11,400 crore, with the purported involvement of a few employees of the bank. The CBI and the ED have registered two FIRs each to probe the case. Both Modi and Choski are said to have left the country before criminal cases were lodged against them.

Donald Trump: Donald Trump administration makes H-1B visa approval tougher - The Economic Times

WASHINGTON: The Trump administration has announced a new policy that makes very tough the procedure of issuing H-1B visas to those to be employed at one or more third-party worksites, a move that will hugely impact Indian IT companies and their employees. Under the new policy, a company would have to go an extra mile to prove that its H-1B employee at a third-party worksite has specific and non-qualifying speculative assignments in speciality occupation. The H-1B programme offers temporary US visas that allow companies to hire highly skilled foreign professionals working in areas with shortages of qualified American workers. Indian IT companies, which are among the major beneficiaries of H-1B visas, has a significant number of its employees deployed at third-party worksites. A significant number of American banking, travel and commercial services depend on on-site IT workers from India to get their job done. The new move announced yesterday through a seven-page policy empowers the US Citizenship and Immigration Services ( USCIS ) to issue H-1B visas to an employee only for the period for which he/she has work at a third-party worksite. The latest policy memorandum is a part of President Donald Trump 's 'Buy American and Hire American Executive Order' and the directive to protect the interests of US workers, the USCIS said. As such the issuing of H-1B visas could be of less than three years. This would reverse the tradition of issuing the H-1B visas for three years at a time. Effective immediately, the new guidance comes weeks ahead of the beginning of the H-1B visas filing season, which is expected to be April 2, for the fiscal year 2019 beginning October 1, 2018. The guidance says in order for an H-1B petition involving a third-party worksite to be approved, the petitioner must show by a preponderance of evidence that the beneficiary will be employed in a speciality occupation and the employer will maintain an employer-employee relationship with the beneficiary for the duration of the requested validity period. When H-1B beneficiaries are placed at third-party worksites, the companies must demonstrate that they have specific and non-speculative qualifying assignments in a speciality occupation for that beneficiary for the entire time requested on the petition. While an H-1B petition may be approved for up to three years, the USCIS will, in its discretion, generally limit the approval period to the length of time demonstrated that the beneficiary will be placed in non-speculative work and during which the petitioner will maintain the requisite employer-employee relationship, an official statement said. Extensions of H-1B visas have become even tougher, in particular if the employee has been on a bench for any part of their previous duration. Sometimes American companies abruptly end the contract of an employee as a result the workers temporarily do not have any work, which in IT parlance is called on bench. During this period, while they maintain their H-1B visas status, official investigations have revealed that foreign IT workers on H-1B visas do not get paid, which the USCIS says is illegal and abuse of the system. "If an H-1B petitioner is applying to extend H-1B employment for a beneficiary who was placed at one or more third-party worksites during the course of past employment with the same petitioner, that petitioner should also establish that the H-1B requirements have been met for the entire prior approval period," the USCIS said. And if these conditions are not met, and if the petitioner did not comply with the terms and conditions of the original petition and did not file an amended petition on time, USCIS may have eligibility concerns about a subsequent petition filed to extend the beneficiary's employment, the policy memorandum said. "Employment-based petitioners who circumvent the worker protections outlined in the nation's immigration laws not only injure US workers (eg their wages and job opportunities), but also the foreign workers for whom they are petitioning," it said. Companies seeking H-1B visas for their employees working at a third-party site, would now have an intensive paper work to file before submitting their applications. This includes evidence of actual work assignments, which may include technical documentation, milestone tables, marketing analysis, cost-benefit analysis, brochures, and funding documents. The letter should provide information, such as a detailed description of the specialised duties the beneficiary will perform, the qualifications required to perform those duties, the duration of the job, salary or wages paid, hours worked, benefits, a detailed description of who will supervise the beneficiary and the beneficiary's duties, and any other related evidence, the USCIS said. 0 Comments
