CBI probe ordered into Mohanlalganj rape and murder case

LUCKNOW: Chief minister Akhilesh Yadav on Monday ordered CBI probe into the Mohanlalganj rape and murder case. The order came at the time when a PIL demanding CBI probe was being heard by the Lucknow Bench of the Allahabad high court. The family members of the victim were staging demonstration in the city for the past one week for the CBI probe into the case.

The body of the 35-year-old widow, mother of two children, was found naked with multiple injury marks on head, face and private parts in a primary school in Balsinghkheda village of Mohanlalganj in Lucknow on July 17. The victim was beaten brutally after she resisted the rape attempt, and later died of hemorrhage due to excessive bleeding.

The police initially said that it was a case of gang-rape and murder but later arrested a private security guard Ram Sewak and booked him for murder. The police said that the accused killed the woman after failing to rape her. However, on July 26, forensic report confirmed rape. It found traces of blood and flesh of more than one person found in the DNA of the victim.

There was also a controversy over number of kidneys in woman's body. While family members claimed that she donated a kidney to her husband in 2011. However, post mortem report said that there were two kidneys. The contradictions in police theory and family versions forced government to order a probe into anomalies in the post mortem report.

Family members also sat on dharna at GPO park demanding CBI probe. They challenged the report of the police which stated that the victim was killed by only one person and demanded justice for the woman. In the meanwhile, a PIL was filed in the high court for CBI probe.

Stop flow of heavy weapons into Ukraine: US to Russia

WASHINGTON: The US has asked Russia to stop the flow of heavy weapons like rocket launchers and artillery from the country into strife-torn Ukraine.

Secretary of State John Kerry stated this during a phone conversation with his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov.

"Kerry urged Lavrov to stop the flow of heavy weapons and rocket and artillery fire from Russia into Ukraine, and to begin to contribute to deescalating the conflict," a State Department official said.

"He (Kerry) did not accept Foreign Minister Lavrov's denial that heavy weapons from Russia were contributing to the conflict," said the State Department official, who spoke on condition of anonymity.

"The Secretary underlined our support for a mutual cease fire verified by the OSCE (Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe) and reaffirmed our strong support for the international investigation to show the facts of MH17," the official said.

Kerry also provided an update on his meetings in the Middle East and Paris this past week and the ongoing efforts to achieve a ceasefire, the official added.

Meanwhile, US intelligence agencies provided images as evidence that Russian forces have fired across the border at Ukrainian military forces, and that Russia-backed separatists have used heavy artillery, provided by Russia, in attacks on Ukrainian forces from inside Ukraine.

One of the images shows ground scarring at a multiple rocket launch site on the Russian side of the border oriented in the direction of Ukrainian military units within Ukraine.

The wide area of impacts near the Ukrainian military units indicates fire from multiple rocket launchers and can also be seen.

Another image shows self-propelled artillery only found in Russian military units, on the Russian side of the border, oriented in the direction of a Ukrainian military unit within Ukraine.

The pattern of crater impacts near the Ukrainian military unit indicates strikes from artillery fired from self-propelled or towed artillery and vice multiple rocket launchers.

The third image shows ground scarring at two multiple rocket launch sites oriented in the direction of Ukrainian military units.

Science Express Biodiversity Special train flagged off from Delhi

NEW DELHI: Environment minister Prakash Javadekar on Monday flagged off Science Express Biodiversity Special train — an innovative exhibition on wheels — that will cover 57 locations across the country in the next 194 days, showcasing the exceptional biodiversity of India.

The idea of this unique train is to create awareness among masses in general and youth in particular about the rich biodiversity of the country that is home to 8% of the world's biodiversity.

Before culminating at Gandhinagar in Gujarat in February next year, the train will be stationed at many towns/cities including Kurukshetra, Ludhiana, Ramnagar (J&K), Tarn Taran, Meerut Cant, Shahjahanpur, Unnao, Nasik and Gandhidham among other locations in different states.

The present run of the train is the third phase of the Biodiversity Special Science Express. In this phase, the train has 16 coaches. Eight coaches are solely dedicated to showcasing the myriad biodiversity spread across all the bio-geographical zones of India through a variety of interactive exhibits, short films and videos that are shown on Plasma and LED TV screens, large format displays, kiosks and backlit panels.

The remaining coaches have interesting and informative exhibits on climate changes, energy and water conservation and other topical issues.

After flagging off the train here at Safdarjung Railway station, Javadekar said an advertising campaign (comprising exact dates and locations) would be launched so as to sensitize and educate the masses on the nuances of the rich biodiversity of the country.

"It is a journey of learning, spreading the message of biodiversity conservation and telling people that even in these modern times, we still have to depend on biodiversity. The train covering a span of 194 days at 57 locations would benefit 30 lakh students," he said.

Javadekar flagged off the train jointly with railway minister D V Sadananda Gowda and minister of state for science and technology Jitendra Singh.

Since its launch in 2012, the Science Express Biodiversity Special (SEBS) train has covered 114 stations and travelled across more than 37,000km in the first two phases.

Phase-I of the SEBS was launched on World Environment Day (June 5) in 2012 from the Safdarjung Railway Station, New Delhi. Phase-II was launched on April 9 last year from the same station.

"It covered 62 locations and over 22 lakh people, including 5 lakh students and 29,000 teachers from 6,005 schools, enjoyed learning in a fun-filled way", claimed the ministry in its official statement.

It said the present phase would culminate on February 4, 2015 at Gandhinagar, Gujarat after covering 57 locations, whereby the SEBS train would have covered most of the major stations across the country.

City public prosecutor M L Jegan filed the contempt petition on behalf of the chief minister in the principal sessions court here on Friday.

In his petition, Jegan said a statement made by Ramakrishnan in the article was "highly defamatory and malicious and it harmed the reputation" of the chief minister. The article was published on July 22.

The chief minister also filed two defamation cases against the editor and the publisher of a Tamil daily for publishing "defamatory articles" against state transport minister.

In the petitions, the minister said that the daily published two news items with an intention of maligning the government. The matter mentioned in the articles was false and published with the intention of defaming the image of the government, said the petition.

Russian fighter jet crashes, pilot killed

MOSCOW: A fighter jet crashed in southern Russia on Sunday, killing the pilot, the head of the air force told Russian news agencies, blaming a technical fault.

"An accident took place and the pilot died," General Viktor Bondarev said, quoted by the Interfax news agency.

"We are working out what happened. According to initial data, the reason for the accident was a failure of aviation equipment," he said.

The widely used Soviet-designed aircraft has experienced a string of accidents over the years in Russia and abroad.

"The MiG-29 jet crashed while carrying out a planned test flight in the Astrakhan region," said defence ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov, quoted by the Interfax news agency.

"The flight supervisor gave the command to eject, but the pilot, trying to save the plane, did not leave the controls and died," Konashenkov said.

A Russian airforce MiG-29 last crashed in 2012 in eastern Siberia when it flew into a hillside, Interfax reported. A year earlier, two pilots were killed on a test flight in the Astrakhan region.

The MiG-29 was first produced in 1980s and has been exported to much of the world. It is deployed by the air forces of a number of countries including Iran.

Scandal-hit China food firm withdrawing all products, US parent says

Reuters | Jul 27, 2014, 04.34PM IST
BEIJING: The parent company of a scandal-hit Chinese food supplier said it is withdrawing all products made by the subsidiary.

Shanghai Husi Food Co Ltd, owned by Illinois-based OSI Group LLC, is at the centre of a major food safety scandal, which has spread from China to Hong Kong and Japan, over allegations it mixed fresh and expired meat.

In a statement posted on its website late Saturday, OSI Group said it would "withdraw from the marketplace" all products made by Shanghai Husi, and that it was conducting an internal investigation into current and former senior management.

It vowed to take "swift and decisive action" including legal measures against those responsible for the scandal, and said a new management team would be brought to China.

Regulators in Shanghai said on Saturday that Husi had forged production dates on smoked beef patties and then sold them after they expired.

OSI Group said it would fully cooperate with Chinese regulators.

Chinese police have detained five people as part of the investigation.

The scandal, which has dragged in global food brands including McDonald's Corp, KFC-parent Yum Brands Inc and Starbucks Corp.., was triggered by a local television report last week showing staff at Shanghai Husi using long-expired meat. The report also alleged the firm forged production dates.

Food safety has been a big concern for Chinese consumers after dairy products tainted with the industrial chemical melamine sickened many thousands and led to the deaths of six infants in 2008.

Forensic reports do not contradict our finding in Lucknow murder: Police

LUCKNOW: The Lucknow Police on Sunday said they have received two reports from the Forensic Science Laboratory in connection with the murder of a 35-year-old widow in Mohanlalganj area here and claimed that these reports do not contradict their finding in the case.

"Seven forensic reports were to be received in Mohanlalganj murder case, of which, only two have been received so far and on the basis of which any conclusion cannot be drawn," Senior Superintendent of Police Praveen Kumar told PTI.

"I can say that the two reports received so far are suggestive and not conclusive. I can say that these reports do not contradict our finding so far."

He said any conclusion could be drwan only after all the seven reports are received and corroborated.

"Whatever comes to the fore will be shared with the media, but it is not right to speculate at this level," Kumar said.

The victim, who hailed from Deoria district, was found brutally murdered on July 17.

ADG Sutapa Sanyal, who was handed over the investigation, on July 20 claimed that the crime was committed by a security guard, Ram Sewak, when the woman resisted his rape bid. She had claimed that there was no rape.

Sanyal had also claimed that nail scratches were detected on Ram Sewak's body, which were probably caused during struggle between him and the woman.

However, some media reports questioned the police theory, suggesting that the woman was killed by more than one person after rape.

Meanwhile, Union minister of Medium, Small and Medium Enterprises Kalraj Mishra on Sunday demanded a CBI inquiry in the case.

"The manner in which the case is being twisted, I feel that there is no other option but a CBI inquiry. The police theory has so many loopholes that it has turned out to be laughable," he said.
