Delhi: Commonwealth Medalist Arrested With 2 Others, 25 kg Drug Seized February 18, 2017 09:32

In a shocking incident, a Commonwealth youth games silver medallist was arrested along with two other persons for holding over 25 kg of party drug 'Meow-Meow'. The drugs were worth of Rs 50 crore. All the three were arrested from New Delhi railway station. "The drug recovered from the arrested accused had originated from African countries and was brought to Mumbai through shipments", a senior police official said. "The accused had brought it to Delhi from where it was to be sent to UAE, UK, USA, Malaysia and other Middle-East countries", said Sanjeev Yadav, Deputy Commissioner of Police (Special Cell). "The trio Amandeep Singh, 29, Harpreet Singh, 30, and Hanish Sarpal, 36, was arrested on February 15 by a Special Cell team that was tracking their movement based on specific inputs", Yadav said. "Accused Harpreet Singh is a former international athlete who had won the silver medal for India at Commonwealth Youth Games, 2004, held in Australia. He also won the bronze medal in SAF Games, 2006, held in Colombo," he said. The Special Cell sleuths got a tip off on February 11 that Amandeep along with Harpreet would travel to Mumbai to collect the drug mephedrone (Meow Meow). After taking the packet they planned to come back to Delhi by train. "Further, the team learnt that the duo will board Dadar-Amritsar train and reach Delhi in the wee hours of February 15. A trap was laid and all the entry and exit points of New Delhi station were covered. Around 6.15 AM, the cops spotted Amandeep and Harpreet near a parking and caught them after a short chase", the officer said. "The third member of the syndicate, Hanish, was arrested on the insistence of accused Amandeep and Harpreet and 650 gms of the drug was recovered from his possession", he said. "During the interrogation of the accused it emerged that Kailash Rajput, presently residing in Dubai and Kishan, living in Uttar Pradesh, are kingpins of the syndicate", the DCP said. Kishan has many associates working in Mumbai. Once, the consignment arrives in Mumbai, Kishan and Kailash Rajput talk to Delhi-Mumbai based agents including Amandeep, Hanish and Harpreet, to get the drug consignment and send it to other countries. "Harpreet allegedly around 2006, took part in some national athletic championships but was debarred from the events as he was detected "positive" in the dope test. He had to quit games as during the trial of Commonwealth Games 2010, he had a permanent injury", said the officer. "After quitting games, he started a business of property dealing but due to slump in the property business in 2013-14 he was lured into drug trafficking through Amandeep," he said. Police with the help of electronic surveillance and secure sources discovered that these days Mephedrone is usually being used by the youngsters, especially in "Rave parties" in Mumbai, Delhi and other metro cities of the country. This dangerous drug is considered to be the "appropriate substitute" of cocaine. The Special Cell of Delhi Police last year in July had nabbed nine drug traffickers seizing 14 kg of Mephedrone from them. NCB Racket Arrest Scientist & his Wife, Seize Drugs Worth Rs 231 Cr BY M.

Sasikala Refused to Sit in Police Jeep, Walked all the way to the Prison February 17, 2017 16:37

V K Sasikala wanted to become the chief minister but she landed in Parappana Agrahara central prison. On Wednesday, when she appeared at the jail, she looked to be in no mood to reconcile with the moderate life she was to have for the next four years. She did not get into police jeep like a criminal but chose to walk to the prison. A source told, "she made it clear to officials that she was ready to walk how much ever the distance it could be". "I am not a petty thief. I will not sit in a police jeep. I will sit in the jail cell, but I will not sit like a criminal in an open police jeep. I will walk any distance. Despite being instructed, she chose to walk the distance," a source at the spot told. The source says "it was clear from her body language that she was really disturbed, angry and frustrated. Sasikala thought she would be given all the facilities she had got previously when she accompanied Jayalalithaa when they were convicted. Jaya was the CM of Tamil Nadu then. Since Jaya had health issues, she was given 'A' grade facilities and even Sasikala too got all the comforts. But, this time it's entirely different as the court rejected her request to be a VIP prisoner. Apparently, she was told that she was no CM and she deserved no special treatment. That was a severe blow to her. All that must have been playing on her mind when she was asked to get into the police jeep. Police wanted her to take the jeep to avoid any kind of law-and-order issues. But Sasikala was quick to say 'no'." According to a jail official, "it was a quiet day/night for Sasikala in the jail and she didn't sleep the whole night. She was allotted 10/8 cell with a half-covered washroom. She was sharing a room with her sister-in-law Elavarasi. Barring occasional conversations Elavarasi, she refused to speak to anyone. She did not even check with anyone about the news in Tamil Nadu." Sources said "she was given a small cot, given her health issues. She was provided with a white saree, but she didn't wear it as she did not have a matching white blouse. She was awake till the early hours of Thursday and slept for just a few hours. In the morning, she had tamarind rice and coffee. She didn't even come out of the cell. Many people from her party here in Bengaluru and from Chennai tried speaking to her, but she didn't allow anyone to meet her." Edappadi K Palaniswami Appointed as TN Chief Minister by Guv BY M.

Kazakhstan: Helicopter Lands on the Road, Pilot Gets Down to ask Direction February 17, 2017 15:20

It is common to ask directions when you are travelling. But have you ever seen a helicopter landing on the road instead of helipad? In an unusual incident, a military helicopter pilot landed on a road in rural Kazakhstan to ask the directions. The video was shared on YouTube on Thursday shows a truck convoy came across a Mi-8 Gunship helicopter taking four rocket pods on a deserted road in the north-west of the country. The video was filmed from a mobile phone by the second truck driver. In the video, we can listen to one voice which says"What the f**k is he doing? He is just sitting there in the middle of the road." Seconds later a man gets down from the helicopter and runs towards the first lorry. He shakes hands with the driver before figuring out the location. After the brief conversation, the pilot waves thanks and runs back to the £8million helicopter. With laughter in his voice, the first trucker says on the convoy radio: "They were lost. He came to ask which way to Aktobe." "How can you get lost in the steppe?" an incredulous trucker replies as the helicopter lifts off. "How the hell can you get lost in the steppe?" Following the incident, the Kazakhstan Ministry of Defense was flooded with queries. A statement was released to the local media, saying that "the helicopter was taking part in a planned visual orienteering exercise, in which trainee pilots were required to determine their location using methods that included by means of the human survey." Reportedly, the exercise was a "success", and the helicopter has since returned to its base airfield. VIDEO: A hybrid of plane and helicopter BY M. DIVYA SRI

Fire Erupted at Bellandur Lake in Bengaluru, No Casualties February 17, 2017 15:03

“Thick smoke enveloped Bellandur lake after a fire broke out when garbage strewn around it was set ablaze”, a fire department official said on Friday. The incident created panic among motorists on the busy Sarjapur main road. "Usually, a pile of garbage strewn around the lake is set on fire, but yesterday it caused a scare among residents and motorists as the smoke started billowing and surrounding the lake in the evening," K U Ramesh, Deputy Director at Karnataka Fire Department, said. "The fire was doused in half an hour. The area, for a while, was enveloped by huge clouds of smoke", he said. Residents blamed the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) officials for their "lackadaisical" attitude and asked them to stop dumping of garbage. The scale of Thursday’s fire startled experts and authorities, who were not able to trace out why the fire erupted for a long time because due to inaccessibility of the spot. Firemen were also confused on how to put off a ‘fire in the water.' According to reports, the incident took place when a weed and dry grass was burnt in the area without proper guidance. Residents from the neighbourhood claimed that this was a regular affair. Karnataka State Pollution Control Board Chairman Lakshman said "notices have been issued to the BBMP, Bengaluru Water Supply and Sewage Board and other agencies to stop the dumping.  He also said the board is in the process of inspecting sewage treatment plants in the area. The lake has been in news for the last one year for spillover of froth and toxic fumes." Bengaluru: 2 Unidentified Persons Fire at APMC President's Car, 1 Killed BY M. DIVYA SRI
