The special task force (STF) is learnt to have solved the mystery behind the sensational murder of journalist Chandrika Rai and his family in Umaria following arrest of five persons, who were allegedly involved in the kidnapping of a PWD officer's son.

The accused, said sources, are residents of Shahdol and were involved in kidnapping of SDO Hemant Jharia's son Anant (7). The accused murdered Chandrika on suspicion that he was in possession of the ransom money given by SDO for his son's release, said sources.

On last Sunday, when the accused approached Chandrika demanding the ransom money, he denied. This allegedly led to an altercation between Rai and the kidnappers. They attacked Chandrika with iron rods and other heavy objects, killing him on the spot.

"After killing Rai, the accused eliminated his wife and two children to ensure no witnesses were left," said a police officer wishing anonymity.

"It's clear that these five were involved in kidnapping and the murder but whether or not Chandrika was involved, is yet to be confirmed. We cannot simply rely on what these criminals claim" the officer said. Investigation is still on to collect corroborative evidences.

Director General of Police (DGP) SK Rout is likely to make an official announcement of the case on Friday evening. After SDO Hemant Jharia's son Anant was released by abductors on February 18 , the Umeria police had called a press conference to announce this, and gave a clean chit to the two suspects they had rounded up. They had also said that the release was made without ransom. The murders took place a few hours after the press meet.

"We hope to soon solve the mystery behind the murder which was committed by professional persons," STF additional director general of police (ADGP) Sanjay Choudhry told reporters in Umaria.

He reached there to inspect the murder site and visited the house of the slain journalist before leaving for Nourojabad in connection with the incident.

PCI team to visit Umaria: The three-member team fact-finding team of the press council would be headed by Kosuri Amarnath and include Rajeev Ranjan Nag and Kalyan Barooah, a council statement said. All the three are members of the council. The task before the team is to investigate into the murders and submit a report to the council at the earliest.

The council sought the cooperation of the state authorities on behalf of its team.

"The Madhya Pradesh authorities are being requested to give all cooperation to this committee so that it can discharge its duties effectively," the statement said. The Council has been taking the issue of journalists security with several state governments.
BHOPAL: A seven-year-old boy, the son of a sub-divisional officer (SDO) of the public works department (PWD), was allegedly abducted from Umaria town on Wednesday evening. The police have no clues about the child or the identity of abductors even 24 hours after the incident. It is the third incident of kidnapping in three days in the state. On February 13, a 14-year-old boy, the son of an industrialist was abducted from Bhopal. The next day, a son of trader was kidnapped from Ratlam.

The victim's family reportedly received ransom calls demanding Rs 6 lakh for the release of the child. Though tight-lipped about the case, the police admitted that calls were received from neighbouring Uttar Pradesh. The police have not succeeded so far in tracing the origin of calls.

"The case is under investigation. We are not in a position to reveal anything,'' SP Manohar Singh Jhamra told TOI. Sources in the police department, however, said a team comprising an additional SP and three investigating officers is being sent to Uttar Pradesh.

The kidnapped boy, Anant Jhariya, is a student of class II. The son of SDO PWD (electrical and mechanical) Hemant Jhariya, Anant, had gone to tutorial classes with a friend. After tutorials, the two boys walked together till the stadium before going their ways. Anant, who was last seen walking towards his home alone, went missing between 6 and 7 pm, the police said. When the boy did not reach home, his parents began looking for him.

6/8:Principal of an Army Public School, Jaipur, alleged to be perpetrator; Antony to institute probe

Up against a formidable line-up of Army officials who were members of an inquiry panel that ended up taking away her job, a victim of alleged sexual harassment by the principal of an Army Public School in Jaipur came knocking on Defence Minister A.K. Antony's door here on Tuesday seeking justice. She was accompanied by Communist Party of India (Marxist) Polit Bureau member Brinda Karat and Right to Food activist Kavita Srivastava who presented a memorandum to the Minister.

"Mr. Antony took a serious view of the matter. He said he would institute an inquiry into it," Ms. Karat told The Hindu.

Raising the larger issue of the Army not recognising Vishaka guidelines set by the Supreme Court on sexual harassment at the workplace, Ms. Karat said: "This girl had no place to go for six months. Why are the Army representatives on the management committee shielding this principal?"


Mangala Bhatt's eyes brimmed with tears as she recalled the outrage she felt when her tormentor, principal Rajiv Kumar Singh, touched her inappropriately and pushed her in full view of a maid, peon and others. And this was not the only time. This 30-year-old mother of a five-year-old alleged that she had been at the receiving end, over several months, of Dr. Singh's lewd comments and open invitation to meet him outside the school if she wanted to be made permanent in her contractual job.

Ms. Bhatt was accompanied by her husband Pawan, also a school teacher, her brother and Meena Devi, the office help attached to the principal's office, who too lost her job for standing witness against the principal.

"I myself, as also peons and safai karamcharis, saw the manner in which the principal pushed Madam Mangala. In fact, on several occasions he touched my fingers as I handed him a glass of water. The first time I thought it was a mistake. The second time again I thought it was a mistake, but it made me conscious of a pattern. But I could not tell anyone. We are poor people and have four children to bring up and need the job," Ms. Meena Devi told The Hindu.


Yet Ms. Bhatt and Ms. Meena have shown exemplary courage in fighting it out. Both women, in different ways, went through a horrendous time on the inquiry committees that were set up, more to break their spirit, than to provide them any relief. Far from following Vishaka guidelines that call for such a panel to be headed by a woman with majority members as women, these male-dominated committees made it worse for the victims with their lewd manner of cross-examination.

Ms. Bhatt was being consistently "advised" to withdraw her complaint or lose her job, while Ms. Meena Devi was being induced to accept a bribe or turn hostile. "Madam used to come to the tea room and cry and cry at the manner in which she was being questioned. Her eyes used to be swollen and red."

Both women were made to sign papers. Ms. Meena Devi said she was made to sign on blank papers, while Ms. Bhatt, who was also taunted on the inquiry panels for not being well-versed with English, was made to sign on papers with English text.

Finally, after the case became public, the services of Ms. Bhatt, an arts teacher, who was promoted TGT Arts and Craft before Dr. Singh became principal, were "terminated." Ms. Meena Devi, who was on contract was made a daily wager and sacked. Some others who spoke up are apprehensive of similar action.

Activist Srivastava said a teacher had deposed before the second inquiry panel that she was present when the incident occurred and yet another spoke up about sexual harassment.

"In these inquiries, Ms. Bhatt was made to sit till late evenings and asked the same questions again and again. Ultimately she left the inquiry and complained to the police on April 5 which lodged an FIR against the principal for sexual harassment. Following this, her services were terminated. She later approached women's groups. The State Women's Commission also held that the Army School was not implementing Supreme Court guidelines relating to Prevention of Sexual Harassment at Workplace."


On November 11, 2011, the principal filed a writ petition in the High Court to get the FIR quashed but it was dismissed. Finally, on November 15, 2011, Dr. Singh was chargesheeted.

When contacted by The Hindu, a top management functionary of the school who did not want to be named said: "It was all building up. What happened was that the principal had questioned her on not attending an evening school function, which resulted in both shouting at each another. It is not correct that the principal pushed her... There are some disgruntled elements who have become witnesses. This has been blown out of proportion."

Asked why no action had been taken against the principal who has been charge-sheeted, he said: "Inquiry panels have found him innocent.''

He claimed Ms. Bhatt had been sacked for "inefficiency and indiscipline." Asked why she was promoted from an Arts teacher to TGT if she was inefficient, he fumbled: "Sometimes she was efficient, then she was promoted… if she is not efficient, reasons are there…''


But Ms. Bhatt wants justice also for all teachers, helpers and peons whose services have been terminated. "With such a principal at the helm of affairs what will be the future of children? Other women should come up and speak out. I could, because of the support of my husband."

6/9: VARANASI: A homeopath practitioner and social activist, Amarnath Pandey suffered pellet injuries on his head in mysterious circumstances at Robertsganj area under the same police station in Sonebhadra district on Wednesday.

Pandey had been in the limelight in recent past for exposing the malpractice committed to allegedly grab the funds of Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (MNREGS) by mafia in Ghorawal block.

According to reports, he was returning home from the market on the night of Wednesday. When he reached close to his house some unidentified miscreants opened fire at him and fled from the scene. Pandey had a narrow escape as he suffered a minor injury on his head in this attack. He was immediately taken to district hospital. Later, Pandey alleged that the MNREGS mafia had engineered the attack on him. However, when SP Sonebhadra, Deepak Kumar, was contacted on Thursday, he said that Pandey had sustained pellet injury but the empty shell, which he claimed to have recovered from the incident site, was of .32 bore. This fact makes the episode sound fishy.

However, Kumar said, the allegations of Pandey have been taken seriously and a probe into the matter is on.

Meanwhile, in protest against the attack on Pandey, scores of social activists staged a demonstration in Badauli Chawk area. They demanded that the police arrest the assailants at the earliest.

As reported by on January 28, 2011:
Second attempt to kill RTI activist

Second attempt to kill RTI activist

Sonbhadra, Uttar Pradesh: A right to information activist Dr Amar Nath Pandey has been shot at in the Sonbhadra district of Uttar Pradesh reportedly for seeking information on corruption in the implementation of MNREGA schemes in the area and exposing district level corruption.

This was the second attempt on his life in the last one week when a jeep had tried to run him over.

The main suspect, the Block Development Officer, was suspended after his expose.

''I was coming back after consulting a child specialist regarding viral fever of my grandson. In the narrow alley near Bechu Halwai that goes up to Sonbhadra Pathologist centre through Samsuddin's house, a person came running from behind, fired and fled," said RTI activist Dr Amar Nath Pandey.

Pandey informed us that he was shot at. Prima facie, he is out of danger and was talking despite being fired upon. He said that he has been raising voice against Gharaulia block BDO (Rajesh Yadav), who attacked him in an act of immediate rage. FIR has been lodged against Rajesh Yadav, Rajesh Dubey and one more person," said Deepak Kumar Superintendent of Police, Sonbhadra.

Pandey's RTI query had revealed that local roads were being constructed under NREGA with a sanction of 24 rupees for each brick.

When in reality the bricks cost no more than four rupees apiece.

Money had been sanctioned to repair old roads, though on paper they were classified as new road constructions.

Also, NREGA money was being paid to job cards issued in the name of dead people.

Sonbhadra residents have mobilised in support of their hero but the lack of protection for whistleblowers means they have to fight the battle on many fronts.

22 and 23 june: Ahmednagar, June 17 (IANS) As Pakistan released five Indians from jail Saturday, the family of 58-year-old Bhanudas Karale from Maharashtra's Ahmednagar district were the first to reach Amritsar to welcome him home. No one is sure how Karale ended up in a Pakistani jail. Neither is Karale, who is mentally imbalanced.

An elated Karale, while speaking to IANS over the phone, said he was glad to be back.
"I'm in good health and I will be at peace now that I'm with my family in my country. It feels so good to be back," he said in a choked voice.

"I just want to go home to my village and rest and spend time with family," he added.
Karale, however, said his time in jail in was getting unbearable even after his release orders were issued.

"I did not face any hardship per se, but it was a jail in a foreign country after all. It was even more difficult to stay there after the knowledge of the fact that I'm being held up here due to lack of appropriate documents," he said.
It has been a long journey for Karale, said activist Jatin Desai.
"I had spoken to him after his release. I thank to everyone who made this possible," he said.
Karale was arrested Aug 28, 2010, for illegally entering Pakistan. He was granted bail on September 21, but had to wait to be actually released from the Kot Lakhpat jail in Lahore.
But Karale's family was unaware of his arrest. He went missing in January 2010 in a state of mental imbalance. His wife Nanubai and sons Vijay and Rohidas and nephew Nitin left no stone unturned to find him.

Karale, a resident of Wadgaon village in Ahmednagar district, had lost his way and ended up on a train to Pakistan without the knowledge of where the train would take him.
However, when in August 2011, the family got a letter written by Karale, they came to know that he was in Lahore's Kot Lakhpat Jail. Karale had sent the letter with Gulab Singh who was released from the same prison after he served his term.

Luckily, help came from advocate Asim Sarode who, after learning about Karale's plight, pledged for his release.

Sarode gathered all legal documents to verify Karale's nationality and sent it to Pakistani human right activist Asma Jahangir.

"It did take us a long time to gather all documents including the missing person's complaint in the local police stations and my uncle's voter identity card to be sent to the Indian High Commission verify his identity," Nitin told IANS.

"But now that my uncle has been released and I have held his hand, I'm glad the bad days are over," he said.

Karale had lost his mental balance after the company, Garware Nylons Ltd, where he worked, shut down in 1996.

22,23,24: Gautam Vora, a hotshot broker and a regular at top Page 3 dos in Mumbai, was arrested on Monday on charges of giving shelter to gangster and murder accused Vijay Palande (casting Vikram Deshmukh). Vora had first hit the headlines as the boyfriend of the late Viveka Babajee in 2010 when the model committed suicide.

Vora's name has now resurfaced after his arrest in connection with the twin murder cases of aspiring Bollywood producer Karan Kakkad (casting Jai Rathod) and Delhi-based businessman Arun Tikku (casting Amar Batra). The police claimed that Vora had arranged for a hotel for Palande once the latter fled from the custody of the Mumbai police after his arrest on April 11.

According to crime branch officials, Palande had called up Vora for help, who then booked a room for Palande. The intention, police officials said, was to ensure that Palande could flee the country. Vora allegedly not just gave Palande fresh clothes but also arranged for a ticket to Bangkok - he would have got the visa on arrival - that was to be delivered to Palande at the airport by one of Vora's men. The police, though, rearrested Palande before he could escape to Bangkok.

Vora met Palande at 9.30pm in room no. 301 of Hotel Godwin in Marine Lines. The stockbroker reportedly got three Tshirts and a pair of trousers for Palande, they said. While entering the hotel, Palande, who looked unkempt, pretended to be the stockbroker's servant. The room was booked till 7am.

The police are trying to find out why Vora helped a murder accused, who had escaped from custody.

Vora was produced before a court in Mumbai where he was remanded in police custody till April 27. The stockbroker's counsel argued that Vora did not know that the man he knew as Karan Sood was actually Vijay Palande.

"Simran Sood introduced Karan Sood as her brother to Vora. He never knew that his real name was Palande and on April 10, when Palande sought Vora's help, he did not know that he was accused of a serious crime," Vora's lawyer Rajendra Sorankar said.

He further argued that Vora would not have shielded Palande if he had known what he was up to as the stockbroker himself could have been his next target. But, the court rejected Vora's bail plea. What could create more problems for the stockbroker and Palande is the police's plan to book all the accused under the dreaded Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA).

Vora is in charge of running the ULJK Broking Firm, which is owned by his father. He completed his education at the Indiana University, Bloomington, US. He lives in a plush house located in the highly posh area of Nepean Sea Road in Mumbai.

The stockbroker, who leads a flamboyant lifestyle, is known to throw big parties and is also regularly visible in Mumbai's A-list party circuit. It is said the entrepreneur loves to live life kingsize and enjoys hobnobbing with the rich and famous.

In 2010, Gautam was interrogated by the police after his thengirlfriend, model Viveka, committed suicide. Gautam and Viveka were said to be in a relationship. In her suicide note, Viveka blamed Vora for her death.

Vora's popularity among girls was what depressed Viveka, who was serious about commitment. The model was found hanging in her Bandra flat and some intimate snaps of the couple were released by the family later on.

Vora claimed that he was not dating Viveka and that they were just friends. Police subsequently gave him a clean chit in the suicide case due to the lack of evidence.

As Vora's name resurfaces in the Tikku-Kakkad murder cases, there are reports that Palande's partner-in-crime Simran Sood was in a relationship with Vora around the time of Viveka's death, and thereby, that could have been the cause of her suicide. However, it is yet not clear whether Simran was responsible for Viveka's suicide or whether Vora was two timing both of them. Initially, Vora was untraceable. The police are now going to question him on his and Simran's relationship as well as on his supporting her financially.

Helped Palande
- Stock broker Gautam Vora was arrested on charges of giving shelter to Vijay Palande, accused of murdering businessman Arun Tikku and budding producer Karan Kakkad, after the latter escaped from police custody

- Palande was arrested in Mumbai on April 10, but escaped later the same day from a police vehicle

- He subsequently approached stock broker Vora, who arrived in his car and took him to a hotel in Colaba- On Monday, Vora was produced before a local court, which remanded him in police custody till April 27
