first_img Next Indo Asian News Servive KolkataJuly 14, 2019UPDATED: July 14, 2019 23:44 IST Witnesses said the victim lay in the tunnel for quite some time before security personnel ran and removed him. (Photo: ANI)A day after the horrific death of a train passenger, a police complaint was filed on Sunday against the Metro Railway authorities, while activists staged a demonstration at the Park Street station demanding exemplary punishment to the guilty and measures ensuring such ghastly incidents did not recur.The complaint was filed at Shakespeare Sarani police station by the family members of Sajal Kanjilal, a resident of South Kolkata’s Kasba area, who died after the train he tried to board started moving with his hand stuck between two sliding doors and the body hanging outside on Saturday.The complaint was filed under Sections 304 A (causing death by negligence) and 34 (common intention) of the Indian Penal Code.However, Kanjilal’s family members also demanded initiation of a case relating to culpable homicide not amounting to murder against the Metro Railway authorities.”This is criminal negligence. This is a culpable homicide. Whether there is technical negligence or human negligence, the responsibility lies with metro authorities,” said a relative of the victim.Amid allegations that the sensor on the door did not function despite the sliding doors closing with Kanjilal’s hand stuck between them, another relative of the middle-aged man said the railway authorities should answer why the faulty rakes were being used.Meanwhile, a group of theatre activists protested at Park Street station and later submitted a deputation demanding firm punitive action and also steps for improving safety of train passengers.Kanjilal was a theatre activist, trained dancer, poet, little magazine enthusiast and a model for artists.Kanjilal had tried to board the Kavi Subhas-bound train around 6.40 pm at Park Street station, but could not get in fully due to a heavy rush of passengers.He had only managed to slip one of his hands inside the compartment when the sliding doors closed in, and the hand got stuck. To the horror of onlookers, the train started moving towards Maidan station, dragging the man whose body was hanging outside.After the train had moved some distance, the shouts of other train passengers alerted the driver, who applied the emergency brake, and the victim fell, face-first, on the track below.The train came to a stop with four coaches inside the tunnel and the remaining four on the platform area.Witnesses to the incident said the victim lay in the tunnel for quite sometime before security personnel ran and removed him.The Metro railway has ordered a high-level probe into the incident.The train’s motorman and the guard have been suspended.Also Read | Stop steel exports at lower than domestic price: Consumers’ associationsAlso Read | Man dies after hand gets stuck between doors of moving Kolkata MetroAlso Watch | Firefighters fire up Lyon streets demanding higher payFor the latest World Cup news, live scores and fixtures for World Cup 2019, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Accept resignations of MLAs at once Bihar Speaker urges Ktaka counterpart

first_img Press Trust of India PatnaJuly 13, 2019UPDATED: July 13, 2019 00:14 IST Karnataka Assembly Speaker KR Ramesh Kumar (ANI)Bihar Assembly Speaker Vijay Kumar Chaudhary on Friday voiced disapproval over the “delay” on part of his Karnataka counterpart K R Ramesh Kumar in taking a decision on the resignations of MLAs of the ruling Congress-JD(S) coalition in the southern state.”The matter has been unnecessarily allowed to snowball the Speaker (of Karnataka) indeed had no option when the members had met him personally and tendered their resignations,” Chaudhary said in the release issued by the Vidhan Sabha secretariat here.”Delay on part of the Speaker is surprising. It appears he has been thinking in terms of getting the members disqualified on ground of their defying the party whip. However, their resignations have preceded issuing of any whip by their parties and such a course of action by the Speaker would not have been in accordance with norms,” Chaudhary said.He said defiance of whip would have made no difference as action taken under the 10th Schedule of Constitution (anti-defection law) also has the same effect, that of a member being disqualified.”The delay has led to a situation wherein the matter has reached the Supreme Court and the action of the assembly Speaker has been subjected to judicial scrutiny… instances like these lower the dignity of the legislature and hamper its credibility. It would be better for the Speaker to accept the resignations without any delay. This would enhance his stature and protect the dignity of the legislature,” the Bihar Assembly Speaker added.The Supreme Court Friday restrained the Karnataka Speaker from taking any decision till Tuesday on the resignation and disqualification of 10 rebel MLAs.The 10 rebel MLAs moved the apex court alleging that the Speaker was not accepting their resignations.They are: Pratap Gouda Patil, Ramesh Jarkiholi, Byrati Basavaraj, B C Patil, S T Somashekhar, Arbail Shivaram Hebbar, Mahesh Kumathalli, K Gopalaiah, A H Vishwanath and Narayana Gowda.ALSO READ | Kumaraswamy wants floor test, SC asks Speaker to not act on resignations | All that happenedALSO WATCH | Kumaraswamy trust vote offer a googly or full toss?For the latest World Cup news, live scores and fixtures for World Cup 2019, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

standing by President Barack Obama in the White House Rose Garden Saturday might have come as a shock to viewers unfamiliar with his long bushy beard reminiscent of the facial hair often grown by devotees of Islam including his sons’ captors His rudimentary knowledge of Pashto and Urdu prevailing languages in Taliban strongholds compounded the confusion But as Robert Bergdahl explained to TIME in May 2012 he grew the beard out of a desire to better understand the world from which his son could not escape Robert Bergdahl said he began growing the beard as soon as he received news of his son’s capture He was on his usual UPS delivery route on July 1 2009 when management radioed him back to headquarters Two army officers delivered the devastating news and according to friends he resolved in that moment to do whatever he could to facilitate his son’s release That included scouring websites and chat rooms for rumors about his son’s captors teaching himself Pashto and Urdu and growing a long eye-catching beard A devout Presbyterian Bergdahl was aware of the impression he made on local congregants His former pastor told the Washington Post that Bergdahl occasionally explained to friends that he had not developed any sympathies for the Taliban he only wanted to understand their worldview Nonetheless those attempts to understand the Taliban have occasionally shaded into acts and gestures that strike some critics as a little too close for comfort Just recently reports surfaced of a tweet deleted from Bob Bergdahl’s Twitter account that directly addressed a
