The block has 483 million tonnes of mineable reserves and with a 15 million tonnes/annum capacity, the life of the project will be about 22 years.

An expert panel of the Union ministry of environment, forests and climate change (MoEF&CC) has recommended forest clearance for expansion of India’s largest open cast mine located at Nigahi in Singrauli, Madhya Pradesh, with certain conditions. The expansion of the mine, under the control of Northern Coalfields Limited, is a part of the Singrauli coalfied and is located on a hilly pleateau with an elevation of about 400-450mts above mean sea level.The block has 483 million tonnes of mineable reserves and with a 15 million tonnes/annum capacity, the life of the project will be about 22 years.<!– Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The coal from the Nigahi extension block will feed the Vindhyachal Thermal Power Station which is the country’s largest power station with an installed capacity of 4,760MW.The project had come up for appraisal before the forest advisory committee (FAC) of the MoEFCC as it requires clearing of forest areas. Singrauli district, where the project is located, is known as the coal and energy capital of the country is home to dense, rich Sal forests.

Bhagwant Mann denies being drunk at Sikh religious ceremony in Faridkot

Bhagwant Mann, the Aam Aadmi Party’s (AAP) Sangrur MP, has denied that he arrived drunk at a bhog ceremony in Faridkot for two youths who were killed in police firing during protests against the desecration of the Sikh holy book, the Guru Granth Sahib.

The Indian Express reports that Jagtar Singh, the former granthi of Darbar Sahib in Amritsar, confronted Mann when he found him to be emitting a ‘foul smell’ on stage. Singh then reportedly told Mann to leave the ceremony and the politician did so immediately. As he was walking away from the venue, a few youths accosted him and accused him of being drunk. A video of this harassment went viral online.

However, Mann claimed that he was not drunk at the ceremony. In a post on his Facebook page, Mann wrote that this news was completely false and was an attempt to defame him. He added that he could not ever imagine doing such a thing and it was an attempt to divert attention away from the real issues of the people. “Mai sache dilon loka de haq Di ladai Jari rakhanga (I will continue the fight for people’s rights with a true heart),” he wrote.

An Australia-based website that covers the Sikh community, The Singh Station, reports that Mann clarified on Facebook that he left the stage for other reasons.

Firstly, he reportedly found out that Punjab Convener Sucha Singh Chhotepur would be the only one speaking on behalf of the AAP. Secondly, the stage host repeatedly announced that there were too many people on stage and it was likely to crash, so those who have already spoken or are not going to speak, should please step down. Thirdly, he was also worried that he was being watched by a few suspicious persons.

A few youth even came over to him and asked him why he had not raised the issue of Bapu Surat Singh Khalsa. Since he did not have any security cover, he felt it was prudent to leave the venue.

Sexual assault: Delhi Court frees security guard, says touch was affectionate

The girl’s father lodged a complaint at Ashok Vihar Police Station against the guard for touching her on several occasions.

A child of tender age is unable to differentiate between good and bad touch, a Delhi court has observed while acquitting a security guard accused of sexually assaulting a minor girl, saying he might have touched her out of “fatherly affection”. Additional Sessions Judge Vinod Yadav absolved the man, who was working as a security guard at the house of seven- year-old girl’s friend, observing that as he was alone most of the time, he probably found solace by talking to kids playing around.<!– Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>”It is quite possible that the accused might have liked the child and out of fatherly affection, he used to speak to her and out of his emotions and not sexual intent, he used to put his hand on her shoulder,” the judge said.”It is common knowledge that a child of tender age like child in this case, is not able to differentiate between good touch and bad touch,” the court observed, while acquitting the man of the charge of sexual assault under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act. It also said no other child found the talks or touch of the accused to be bad and that could probably be subjective assessment of the alleged victim.”Duty of accused was to remain at or near the main door and lawn. Most of the time, he probably used to be alone and some kind of interaction or solace was available to him only when the children used to come to play in that house and for breaking monotony of his life, probably he used to feel like talking to the small children,” the court said.According to the prosecution, the girl had informed her parents that whenever she used to go to play at her friend’s house, the guard employed there would talk to her and touch her shoulder. On April 27, 2013, the girl’s father lodged a complaint at Ashok Vihar Police Station against the guard for touching her on several occasions.The accused had pleaded not guilty and claimed he was falsely implicated by the child’s father as he had refused to do his personal work including washing of his car.While acquitting the man, the court said, “The punishment under POCSO Act is very stringent and as such the mode of proof of the offence has to be of a higher degree and accused cannot be held to have committed the offence of sexual assault merely on a subjective assessment of his touch by a child of tender age.”

Dausa victim’s father slams Hema for small ‘soch’, says if she has guts must speak before him

Mumbai/Jaipur: BJP MP Hema Malini on Wednesday blamed the father of the four-year-old girl for the child’s death in the road accident involving the actress’ Mercedes, saying had he followed traffic rules, his daughter’s life could have been saved, comments which evoked angry reaction from him.

The actress, who received injuries in the mishap, said, “My heart goes out to the child who unnecessarily lost her life and the family members who have been injured in the accident.”

“How I wish the girl’s father had followed traffic rules, then this accident could have been averted and the little one’s life saved,” she tweeted.

Sonam was killed while five others were injured including the actress when Hema’s Mercedes collided with another car on 2 July in Rajasthan’s Dausa district.

The 66-year-old actress had undergone surgery for her wounds in a hospital in Jaipur last week.

The victim’s father Hanuman Mahajan alleged that it was Hema’s Mercedes which was speeding above 100 km per hour when his car was hit.

“I feel very sad that Hemaji, an MP, has such a small ‘soch’ (thinking) that she tweeted that I was not following traffic rules,” Mahajan, who is convalescing in Trauma Hospital in the Pink City, told PTI.

“Big people can say anything from anywhere… If she has courage… she should come before me and say what she has to. I like to know from her one traffic rule that I violated… whether I was driving at very high speed, or whether I was on the wrong side, or I did not give an indicator… or I did not put seat belt,” he said.

“My mistake was that I was driving at a very slow speed and her car was at high speed,” he said, adding, “Why was her driver arrested and released on bail. We have filed the case with the Kotwali Police Station in Dausa district.”

Soon after the mishap, Mahajan had said that Sonam could have been saved had she been rushed to the hospital with the actress.

What are these objectionable remarks? In a small column in the magazine called Deep Throat, that focuses on insider news, a write-up focused much word space on the IAS officer’s fashion statement and the fact that she is “eye candy”.

“She makes a fas­h­ion sta­tement with her lovely saris and serves as “eye candy” at meetings, admit leading party politicians,” reads the column.

It ends with: “The lovely lady, known for her ethnic style, recen­tly stunned all by appearing in a trendy trouser and frilly top at a fashion show. And for once, she wasn’t sitting in an official meeting. But this appearance, too, made for a great photo op.”

Govardhan Reddy and Ravi Kumar, both advocates, have now lodged a complaint with Saroornagar Police Station, in Hyderabad, by submitting a paper clipping of the weekly that also carried a caricature, which they said is highly objectionable and damaged the reputation of the IAS officer.

Though the article doesn’t name any officer in particular, it alludes to Smita Sabharwal, the first female IAS officer to be appointed by the Telangana chief minister’s office.

“No case has been registered so far. We made General Diary (GD) entry of the complaint and are consulting legal authorities. Further action will be taken based on the legal opinion,” the inspector told PTI.

However, NDTV has reported that Sabharwal is suing Outlook for the column.

This particular column has become infamously popular on Twitter with journalists and activists lashing out at the magazine. Here are some tweets:
