A Delhi court dismissed the bail plea of AAP MLA Manoj Kumar on Thursday in a case of alleged cheating and land-grabbing.Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Saurabh Pratap Singh Laler rejected the bail applications of Kumar and his alleged accomplice Lakhpat, who had claimed that the case against them was politically motivated.”The case has been given a political colour as he is the MLA of AAP,” Kumar’s counsel submitted adding that Kumar deserves bail as “he is an MLA and not a terrorist”.<!– Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Countering the claim, Delhi Police claimed that Kumar was allegedly involved in a serious case of forgery of valuable security, for which the maximum punishment was life sentence.Advocates Mahesh Sharma and C L Gupta, appearing for the Kondli legislator, said there was no apprehension that he would flee from justice and it was wrong to suggest that he was involved in cheating, as during interrogation it came out that the owner of the plot was a lady named Chandrakala, who had sought his help to sell the land.The bail pleas were vehemently opposed by special public prosecutor (SPP) Anupam Sharma on the ground that the offences invoked against Kumar include those under sections 467(forgery of valuable security) and 475 (counterfeiting device or mark used for authenticating documents) of the IPC which entail a maximum punishment of life term, and his bail application was misplaced.The SPP said the CFSL report was “very clear” and stamps and notary’s signature were “fabricated”.Kumar’s counsel contended there was no forgery and the MLA should be granted bail since all the documents were in the possession of the prosecution and Kumar has been in custody since July 9.Lakhpat’s counsel said no role has been attributed to his client in the FIR and he was only a witness to the execution of the agreement. He argued that Kumar, with dishonest intention, was very clear from the beginning that he has brought fabricated papers.The SPP also said both the accused should not be granted bail as investigation is at initial stage and several other cases, including molestation, are pending against Kumar. The court had on July 14, sent Kumar to judicial custody till July 25.The AAP leader was arrested on July 9 for allegedly selling a plot for Rs six lakh in November 2012 to complainant Vinod, who later came to know that the land did not belong to him.The police had argued before the court that the “fake” documents claimed Kumar to be the property owner and the deal was finalised at Rs 21 lakh, though the real owner of the plot was one Chandrakala who gave a statement to the police saying the property was never sold to Kumar. Kumar is the second law-maker of AAP to be arrested. On June 9, then Law Minister Jitender Singh Tomar was arrested on charges of possessing fake degrees. He had later resigned from the Cabinet and was sent to judicial custody.Police claimed Kumar’s was an old case relating to alleged land fraud which was registered against him last year. A case of cheating was registered against him following allegations that he duped his business partner Vinod of Rs six lakh. Vinod had alleged in his complaint that Kumar used to work as a property dealer before venturing into politics.Vinod claimed that he was Kumar’s business partner and had given Rs six lakh to him to purchase a plot in November 2012 but the property did not belong to him.

Medical Council of India moves HC on CBI closure report against doctors in graft case

The Council filed the petition before Justice Siddharth Mridul, seeking direction to summon accused doctors, K K Arora and A S Nayyar, the then deputy secretaries of MCI, to face trial in the case.

The Medical Council of India has moved the Delhi High Court seeking quashing of a trial court order accepting CBI’s closure report in a case in which its two doctors were caught on camera allegedly accepting money for granting clearance to medical colleges.The Council filed the petition before Justice Siddharth Mridul, seeking direction to summon accused doctors, K K Arora and A S Nayyar, the then deputy secretaries of MCI, to face trial in the case.The trial court on November 21, 2014 had accepted CBI’s closure report and said, “There is no sufficient material on record to proceed” against the two doctors named as accused in the FIR.<!– Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Challenging the special CBI judge decision, the MCI said that the trial court judge “erroneously came to the conclusion that there is no sufficient material on record to proceed against the two doctors and has thus erroneously accepted the closure report”.The FIR was registered on the basis of an October 17, 2005 letter of Dr P C Kesavankutty Nayar, the then acting President of the MCI, which was sent to CBI along with two CDs containing recording of a programme which was shown on a news channel on October 14, 2005 that Arora was allegedly accepting money for agreeing to grant clearance to medical colleges.The agency had said that in the sting operation Arora and A S Nayyar were allegedly seen negotiating with certain persons to extend certain benefits to medical colleges in return of illegal gratification.Later CBI had filed the third closure report on September 15, 2014, saying during further probe in the case, sufficient material has not come forthwith to establish the complicity of accused persons named in the FIR to prosecute them.The trial court accepted CBI’s report and held that there was no evidence of Arora accepting the money except in the statement of a prosecution witness who was the reporter of the news channel.According to the special court, another witness who had earlier alleged that Arora had accepted Rs 50,000 in his presence, later on said that no recording regarding transaction of bribe amount between MCI officials and the channel’s reporter, was held in his presence.However, the MCI in the plea, which the high court posted for consideration on May 28, has said that the investigating officer had “clearly overlooked the material on record, which prima facie establishes the case against the accused persons”.The Council stated that CBI closure report was filed without any “application of mind”.”CBI had overlooked the importance of the present case in public interest, as it may affect thousands of lives in the country.”The closure report submitted by CBI was based on non appreciation of the incriminating evidence against the accused and the same has been filed in undue haste without proper deliberation of the nature of offence and its consequences on the society at large,” the MCI said in its petition.It stated that “In view of the statement of the witnesses, documentary evidences as well as the report of CFSL, Chandigarh, it is clear that a cognizable offence has been committed by the accused persons who are liable to be summoned by this court for facing trial.”

CBI team will also meet Bengaluru CID officials for collecting all the documents of the case.

“… The CBI has registered a preliminary enquiry for investigation of a case registered earlier… at Madiwala Police Station into the unnatural death of DK Ravi, IAS, who was working at Additional Commissioner of Commercial Tax (Enforcement) Bengaluru,” CBI spokesperson Kanchan Prasad said.

The sources said the agency received the notification from the DoPT today after which a preliminary enquiry was initiated. If prima facie evidence surfaces which require conversion into FIR, it will be done, they said.

Ravi, an IAS officer of 2009 batch, was found dead on 16 March at his residence in Bengaluru.

His death had snow-balled into a major controversy with Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah initially refusing to seek a CBI probe in the case. The case was handed over to Karnataka CID.

How AIIMS report on Sunanda Pushkar affects Shashi Tharoor

As the Delhi police registered a case of murder in Sunanda Pushkar’s death, her husband Shashi Tharoor, a former union minister and Congress MP, may be asked to join investigations soon.The Delhi police, which almost took a year before registering the case on Monday claimed that the latest medical report from AIIMS states that it was an ‘unnatural death due to poisoning.’ Until now, the police were focusing on the suicide theory in the wake of the couple’s strained relationship.Delhi police commissioner B S Bassi told reporters that, “the latest medical report from AIIMS states that it was not a natural death. She died due to poisoning. Whether the poison was given orally or injected into her body is being investigated.” The police received the AIIMS report on December 29 and would send her viscera abroad for further examination.The report once again brings to focus ‘injury number 10 — an unexplained injection mark’ found on the right wrist of Sunanda. dna was the first to report about the mysterious injury in February last year.Normally, in the case of unnatural death within seven years of marriage, the husband is arrested on dowry demand ground. “However, dowry case can’t be invoked in the case of Tharoor as no one has filed such a complaint. So, he cannot be arrested on this ground as of now,” senior Supreme Court lawyer Kamini Jaiswal told dna.However, family members of Pushkar in Jammu reiterated the allegation that Tharoor could be involved in the murder. “We already knew it wasn’t a natural death. We have been asking for a CBI probe. It was all planned. Why would Tharoor go for a meeting when she wasn’t feeling well? Even cameras weren’t working in such a big hotel,” Ashok Kumar, maternal cousin of Pushkar, told dna over phone from Jammu.He further stated he was amazed “why Pushkar’s immediate brother Rajesh was not raising the issue?”The needle of suspicion, thus, continues to hang on Tharoor’s head, as alleged by senior BJP leader Subramanyam Swami, who, from the day of the incident, has been saying that it’s a murder case.”It was not even an ordinary murder. She was capable of hurting reputations of persons at very higher places. She could have exposed the whole illegal mess in IPL,” Swami had said. While the police are yet to detail the kind of poisoning, many believe that ‘air embolism could have resulted in her death.’ In this process, an air bubble may have been injected into her vein, which could prove fatal if ‘more than 100 ml of air is injected into the venous system at rates greater than 100 ml/s.’Sunanda, 52, was found dead in her room at a five-star hotel in south Delhi on January 17, 2014. Tharoor was then minister of state for human resource development in UPA-II government. Recently, Prime Minister Narendra Modi named Tharoor as one of the ambassadors of ‘Clean India Campaign.’Meanwhile, Tharoor, in a statement, said that he was stunned to find out that his wife was poisoned and a case of murder was registered.”Needless to say, I am anxious to see that this case is investigated thoroughly and assure the police my full cooperation. Although we never thought of any foul play in the death of my wife, we all want a comprehensive investigation and unvarnished truth should come out,” he said.He added that he and all members of Pushkar’s family wanted access to all the information on the basis of which the Delhi police had concluded that she was poisoned to death.”We have not been provided copies of the post-mortem report and other reports of the inquiry like the CFSL report till date. We repeat our request for a copy of these reports to be provided to us immediately,” said Tharoor.Earlier in October, the Delhi police had stated that the forensic report from AIIMS claiming that Pushkar died of poisoning was ‘not conclusive’ and investigations would continue.The first autopsy report, submitted to the sub-divisional magistrate in January had stated that Pushkar had died of ‘drug overdose.’ The report also said that a mild, foul-smelling gas emanated from her body during dissection. Sunanda’s body had 15 injuries, caused in 12 hours before her death. Injury number 12 was caused by a teeth bite.Dr Sudhir Kumar Gupta, who was the head of the forensic team that conducted the post-mortem, had also alleged that he was under pressure to show that Pushkar’s death was “natural.” The allegation was denied by AIIMS. At that time, Gupta was the head of AIIMS forensic department. He was removed from the post later.
