The Additional District and Sessions court in Kottayam on Friday (January 14), acquitted Bishop Franco Mulakkal in the sensational case pertaining to the rape of a catholic nun.
“Daivathinu Sthuthi (Praise the Lord!)” Mulakkal told reporters, before leaving the court premises. He broke down in court and embraced his lawyers when the verdict was announced.
Franco Mulakkal, 57, was the first Catholic Bishop in India to go on trial for rape on the complaint of a catholic nun. After a trial of more than 100 days, the additional sessions court announced a single line verdict saying it had found him not guilty of the charges.
In June 2018, a nun from the Missionaries of Jesus congregation under the Jalandhar diocese had accused Bishop Franco of repeatedly raping her between 2014 and 2016 while he was the head of the Missionaries of Jesus order.
Denying the rape allegations, the Bishop claimed that the story was ‘fabricated’ and was in retaliation for taking action against her with regard to a complaint raised by a woman.
The allegations were followed by street protests by several nuns, who demanded action by the church, police and the Kerala government. The Bishop was then arrested in September, the same year. He was in jail for 25 days after the court remanded him.
The chargesheet against the Bishop, which consisted of 2,000 pages in three volumes, was submitted in April 2019. The trial in the case commenced in November 2019 and concluded on January 10., 2022. Of the 83 witnesses listed by the prosecution, 39 were examined during the trial.
The Investigating Officer S Harisankar, former Kottayam SP, said to the reporters, “This is an extremely unfortunate verdict, it is shocking for us. We had expected a conviction fully. We will appeal. We had a lot of corroborative evidence. All the witnesses in the case were ordinary people.”
Mumbai Police Arrests Trio In Drug Case Worth Rs 16 Crore
ANUSHKA PATHAK – Mumbai Uncensored, 15 January 2022
The Mumbai Crime Branch seized a drug worth Rs 16.10 crore on Wednesday night (January 12, 2022) from SMD Road, Antop Hill. The police arrested three people in possession of the drug and all the three have been sent to the custody of the Crime Branch for further investigation.
Some sources say, neither of the three accused were aware of the exact value of the drug, and were going to sell it in the market at a negotiable price.
According to the Mumbai Crime Branch, three people were detained in Antop Hill. They were found to be in possession of 16 kg and 100 grams of drug Methaqualone worth Rs 16.10 crore.
Neelotpal, DCP Detection, Mumbai Crime Branch said, “The accused have been nabbed and further investigation is on to find the source and beneficiaries of the contraband.”
The three people arrested have been identified as Imran Jhalori, Amjad Khan and Asif Arab. They are residents of Antop Hill and live in the same building. They are daily wage earners.
The Crime Branch found that the contraband was stored in a godown and its owner passed away last year in November. The police declined to give more information about the godown owner as they are investigating how he came into possession of the drug. The godown was used to store mobile phone accessories and chargers, etc.
A police officer informed, “Jhalori used to work in the godown and was asked by the owner before his death to dispose off something that was kept in a packet. But he was not told that it was the drug”.
After the owner’s death, instead of disposing of the drug, Jhalori tried to find out what was in the packet and decided to sell it. “He may or may not have had an idea about the drug but he wasn’t aware about its actual value. He then contacted some drug dealers and finalized the price for Rs 5 lakh,” the officer added.
The police also found 48 kg worth of raw materials used for making synthetic drugs.
An FIR has been registered against the trio under relevant sections of the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act. All the accused were produced before the Killa Court and remanded in Mumbai Police Crime Branch custody till January 20.
मास्क घालणे बंधनकारक नाही ? माहितीच्या अधिकाराद्वारे केंद्र सरकारचा राज्य सरकार विरोधात गंभीर खुलासा..!
AKASH SONAWANE – MumbaiUncensored, 15 January 2022
मार्च २०२० चे लॉकडाऊन – १ संपुष्टात येत असताना नागरिकांची घराबाहेर पडण्यास सुरुवात झाली. संसर्गाच्या भीतीने प्रत्येकासाठी मास्क घालणे गरजेचे होतेच परंतु वैयक्तिक पाळतीवर सुद्धा प्रत्येक नागरिक सतर्क होता. कालांतराने सर्व पुर्वव्रत होत असताना नागरिकांना ‘मास्क’ चा विसर पडला आणि सरकार चा हस्तक्षेप सुरु झाला.
केंद्र शासनाने दिलेल्या निर्देशानंतर सुद्धा आपत्ती व्यवस्थापन कायद्याच्या कलम ३८,३९ चे उल्लंघन करुन महाराष्ट्र शासनाने बेकायदेशीररीत्या मास्कची सक्ती करण्याचा नियम आणून सरकारी कर्मचाऱ्यांकडून भादंवि चे कलम १६६, १२० (ब), ३४ आणि आपत्ती व्यवस्थापन कायदा कलम (ब), ५५ अंतर्गत होत असलेले गुन्हे त्वरीत रोखणे तसेच मास्कचा दंड घेण्यासाठी फिरणाऱ्या कर्मचाऱ्यां विरुध्द खंडणी वसुलीसाठी गैरकायदेशीरपणे नागरिकांवर सक्ती आणण्यासाठी भादंवि ३४१, ३४२, २२०, ३८५, १२० (ब), ३४, १०९ अंतर्गत गुन्हे दाखल करणेबाबत माहितीचा अधिकार कायद्याअंतर्गत अर्ज दाखल केले गेले.
केंद्र सरकारच्या स्वास्थ्य मंत्रालयाने दि. १९ मे २०२१ रोजी अमित चौहान यांना दिलेल्या उत्तरामध्ये स्पष्ट केले आहे की मास्क घातल्यामुळे सदृढ लोकांना फायदा होत असल्याबाबत कोणतेही शास्त्रीय पुरावे नाहीत. तसेच ज्या लोकांना कोरोना लक्षणे नाहीत त्यांनी मास्क घालू नये.
त्यानंतर दि. २७ मे २०२१ च्या सौरव बायसॅक याना मिळालेल्या उत्तरामध्ये केंद्र सरकारने स्पष्ट केले की मास्क घालणे हे ऐच्छिक असून बंधनकारक नाही. जागतिक पातळीवर तज्ञांनी शोध करुन एकूण ४७ शोध पत्रामध्ये स्पष्ट केले आहेत कि मास्क लावल्याने कोरोना चा प्रसार थांबतो याचा कोणताही पुरावा नाही परंतु मास्क लावल्यामुळे लोकांना श्वसनाचे आजार होतात व त्यांचे फुफुसे कमजोर होण्याची शक्यता असण्याचे विविध शास्त्रीय पुरावे उपलब्ध आहेत.
केंद्र सरकारने दि. १७ जुलै २०२१ रोजी दिलेल्या पत्रांत हे स्पष्ट केले आहे की उच्च प्रतीचा मास्क (N95/Surgical Mask) च्या छिद्रांची साईझ ही ०.३ – १० μm ते ०.१ – ०.३ μm मायक्रोमीटर एवढी असते आणि कोरोना विषाणू हा त्यापेक्षा कित्येक पटीने लहान असतो. म्हणजेच मास्क लावल्यानंतर सुद्धा त्यामधून कोरोना विषाणू जावू शकतात व संसर्ग पसरवू शकतात.
अशा इतर अनेक मुद्द्यांसह काही लोक आपल्याला आंदोलने आणि निदर्शने करताना सोशल मीडिया वर दिसतात, तसेच झोपलेले सरकार आणि जनतेची गैरकायदेशीरपणे लूट करणारे प्रशासन काही थांबत नाही. अशा टीका ते सरकार वर करतात.
Javed Shah From Kashmir Arrested For Smuggling Idols Worth Rs 40 Crore
Anushka Pathak, Mumbai Uncensored, 14th January 2022 :
Tamil Nadu Police have arrested a Kashmiri businessman named Javed Shah on Tuesday, who was involved in an international idol theft racket.
A statue worth Rs 40 crore has been recovered from his possession. Police have scanned his contacts and are looking out for others associated with this network.
In addition to the CB-CID statue wing of Tamil Nadu Police, the Director General of Police had received a tip that some statues were illegally kept at a shop in Mahabalipuram.
A Special Police Team (SIT) was made on this basis. The team then handed over Javed Shah’s shop to the Indian Handicrafts Emporium. Javed Shah was also arrested from the spot after the information was corrected.
Police recovered ancient idols and items from his shop in the raid. These include 11 statues and eight more items . The archaeological department said that the statues date back to the 11th century. Further police investigation revealed that Javed did not have a licence to sell the idols.
The recovered idols include a statue of Goddess Parvati, a flute-playing statue of Lord Krishna, a ten-headed statue of Ravana and other ancient objects. These idols are estimated to be around Rs. 40 crores in the international market. Police say Javed Shah could be one of the men of the racket and his strings may be linked to major international criminals.
During interrogation, Javed told the police that he has been smuggling idols for the last 30 years. He said he used to secretly sell precious idols to tourists visiting hotels in the city. He has been remanded to police custody after being arrested. Meanwhile, his brother is reported to be missing. Police are now looking out for which temples these statues belong to.
