Punjab Police personnel cordon off their intelligence headquarters in Sector 77, Mohali, after the rocket-propelled grenade attack on May 9, 2022. Canada-based gangster Lakhbir Singh, alias Landa, played a key role in planning the terror attack.

Punjab Police on Friday busted an ISI-backed terror module jointly handled by Canada-based gangster Lakhbir Singh, alias Landa, and Pakistan-based gangster Harvinder Singh Rinda with the arrest two of its operatives.

Lakhbir Singh is believed to be an aide of Rinda, who had joined hands with Babbar Khalsa International (BKI), and has close ties with Pakistan’s Inter Services Intelligence (ISI). Landa had played a key role in planning the rocket propelled grenade (RPG) attack on the Punjab Police Intelligence Headquarters in Mohali and had also planted an IED under sub-inspector Dilbag Singh’s car in Amritsar.

Those arrested have been identified as Baljit Singh Malhi, 25, of Jogewal village in Ferozepur and Gurbaksh Singh, alias Gora Sandhu, of Buh Gujran village in Ferozepur.

Punjab director general of police (DGP) Gaurav Yadav tweeted said that in an intelligence-led operation by AIG, counter intelligence, Jalandhar, Navjot Singh Mahal, police teams arrested both the accused. The police recovered an AK-56 assault rifle along with two magazines, 90 cartridges and two bullet shells from a location pinpointed by Gurbaksh Singh at his village, he said.

He said that preliminary investigation revealed that Baljit was in touch with Italy-based Harpreet Singh, alias Happy Sanghera, and on the latter’s directions Baljit had picked consignment of weapons from a spot at Makhu-Lohian road near the sanctuary at Sudan village in July 2022.

Later, they concealed the consignment in a field owned by Gurbaksh in his village after conducting test fires, he said.

He said that it has also been ascertained that Baljit was in direct contact with gangsters, including Canada-based Lakhbir Landa and Arsh Dalla.

Investigation is on and more recovery of weapons is expected soon.

International Day of the Girl Child 11 October

Written by Thursday, 15 February 2018 06:30

Now more than ever, we must renew our commitment to work together so that girls enjoy and exercise their rights and can play a full and equal part in their communities and societies. Investing in girls is investing in our common future." UN Secretary-General António Guterres

Our time is now—our rights, our future

In 2022, we commemorate the 10th anniversary of the International Day of the Girl (IDG). In these last 10 years, there has been increased attention on issues that matter to girls amongst governments, policymakers and the general public, and more opportunities for girls to have their voices heard on the global stage. Yet, investments in girls’ rights remain limited and girls continue to confront a myriad of challenges to fulfilling their potential; made worse by concurrent crises of climate change, COVID-19 and humanitarian conflict. Girls around the world continue to face unprecedented challenges to their education, their physical and mental wellness, and the protections needed for a life without violence. COVID-19 has worsened existing burdens on girls around the world and worn away important gains made over the last decade.

With adversity, however, comes resourcefulness, creativity, tenacity, and resilience. The world's 600 million adolescent girls have shown time and time again that given the skills and the opportunities, they can be the changemakers driving progress in their communities, building back stronger for all, including women, boys and men.

Girls are ready for a decade of acceleration forward. It is time for us all to stand accountable – with and for girls – and to invest in a future that believes in their agency, leadership and potential.

Ways to get involved

Share human interest stories, blogs and videos of girl changemakers, and the inspiring networks and organizations that are resourcing girls, letting girls lead, and strengthening services for girls. Let’s collectively amplify their leadership, actions, and impact to inspire others.

Engage government officials, policymakers and stakeholders to make more targeted investments that tackle inequalities experienced by girls, especially while accessing mental health and psychosocial support services in the face of conflict, forced migration, natural disasters, and the effects of climate change.

Engage key female influencers across industries to be the face of change we want girls to see as possible. Role models speak a thousand words. Let’s change the global conversation and public perception of girl leaders.

Amplify your commitment to raising awareness about and addressing factors that hold girls in your country and region back. Source : un.org

The students of Apeejay School in Bhubaneshwar were confined to the library for five hours over alleged non-payment of fees.

Four days after 34 students of a private English medium school in Bhubaneswar were allegedly detained in the school library over non-payment of school fees, the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) on Monday asked for a report on the incident.

Last week, 34 students of Apeejay School in Bhubaneshwar that is run by Apeejay Education Trust, a welfare Trust of the Apeejay Surrendra Group, were confined to the library for five hours over alleged non-payment of fees.

Bhubaneswar police registered a case under sections 342 and 34 of IPC and Section 75 of Juvenile Justice Act against the CEO, vice-principal and administrative manager of the school over the issue.

In their complaint before the police, parents of the 34 students of the school between class 3 and 9 alleged that their wards were detained in a room between 9:30am and 2:30pm by their respective class teachers over non-payment of fees.

The NHRC asked Khordha district collector, secretary of school & mass education department, and Bhubaneswar-Cuttack police commissioner to submit the report within four weeks.

The commission had received a complaint in this connection from human rights activist Bhajaman Biswal.

The Khurda district administration has already issued a show cause to the school about the incident. Source : ht

The President said that the legislature is a temple of democracy and the lawmakers are the 'bhaagyavidhata' or those who decide the destiny. Kovind said that the people of the state have expectations from the representatives who should fulfil them.

President Ram Nath Kovind on Monday addressed a joint session of the Uttar Pradesh legislative council and the legislative assembly, saying that the UP legislature has a glorious history of amicability between the ruling party and the opposition, news agency PTI reported.

Stating that there can be differences of ideology but there shouldn't be animosity between the two sides, the President said, "Sometimes, there have been undignified incidents which are contrary to this rich tradition. You have to make an effort to forget them by considering those as an exception.

"You all have to further strengthen the rich political tradition of UP. In a democracy, there can be differences of ideology between the ruling party and the opposition but there should not be any animosity (vaimanasya) between both the sides," Kovind said.

The President said that the legislature is a temple of democracy and the lawmakers are the 'bhaagyavidhata' or those who decide the destiny. Kovind said that the people of the state have expectations from the representatives who should fulfil them.

"The ambit of your public service must contain all the citizens, whether they have voted for you or not. Hence, it is your responsibility to work in the interest of every person," he said.

The president also exuded confidence that UP will soon become "Uttam Pradesh".

"With your efforts, Uttar Pradesh will soon become Uttam Pradesh. When the largest state of the country achieves all the parameters of development, then the country's development will automatically get a backing."

Former chief minister and Samajwadi Party president Akhilesh Yadav shared a picture of the joint session. “The festival of democracy should go on forever,” he tweeted. (With PTI inputs) Source : ht

This story is no less interesting than a script of an action-packed thriller. But the only relief is that the story ended on a happy note after a struggle of 22 years. Born and brought up in India and working for human rights in India only, 68-year-old Luingam Luithui is extremely happy about the fact that finally he and his wife Peingamla have once again become citizens of this country. Now this couple will be able to celebrate Christmas this year in their home town of Ukhaharul in Manipur. They will finally give up their citizenship of Canada which they had to take under compulsion in a state of despair.

His long and tough legal battle has made one thing very clear that no government can deprive a citizen of his citizenship. No matter whether that person is a member of some organisation or follower of some ideology, if he is a native of the country, then his right to citizenship cannot be taken away.

Luingam Luithui told National Herald that the pain of living away from his people and land for so long haunts him deeply but he is very happy that finally, justice has won. He said, “My faith in the Indian judiciary was re-established. Despite belonging to the state of Manipur and despite being a supporter of the Naga Movement, I won this case with the help and support of my lawyer Shomana Khanna and my young relatives. Now I will peacefully live in India. Living abroad for so many years was uncomfortable for me. I was not at ease and was always under stress lest I did something wrong. Your own country and your own people are after all your own…though I will again have to build my life from scratch…” his voice choked with emotions while saying this.

The suspense in his story still remains. On August 23rd, 2017, the Delhi High Court rebuked the Centre that no citizen can be deprived of his citizenship just like that and the citizenship of this couple was never annulled. The government could not tell the court on what basis and on which decision the government annulled the citizenship of this couple who fought for it for 22 years. It could not present any file in the court related to the confiscation of the passport of Luingam Luithui couple. That means the question why this Indian couple remained deprived of Indian passport for 22 long years still remains unanswered.

Luingam Luithui, who challenged the AFSPA in the 1990’s was always a target of the state and Central government and he was seen as someone connected with militant Naga outfits.

When this couple went to Bangkok to attend a seminar, Luithui’s wife Peingamla lost her passport. So they applied for a duplicate of the same. But they were not given the passport. The government started harassing Luingam Luithui since 1995. He was in Ottawa, Canada, when he was told by the Indian High Commission that their passport was cancelled in 1995 only and he was forced to get out from there.

He started this fight for justice after that. His nephew in India, Chingya Luithui, took it upon himself to help him out. The Central government provided only this much information that because Luingam Luithui was associated with the militant Naga organisations, hence his citizenship has been annulled. When they could get nothing more from the government, they went to the senior lawyer Shomana Khanna in 2008-09. Shomana told National Herald, “In my 23-year-long career in law, I had not seen a case like this. There was no document available. Only this could be seen clearly that the couple was a victim of sheer injustice. For three years information was drawn out only through RTI. For a year, we prepared the petition and from 2013 to 2017, we fought the case.

To what extent the government can lie and how openly it can violate the citizens’ rights - this case presents a live example of it.

Luingam Luithui’s family showed amazing courage. He has no kids of his own but his brothers’ sons fought tooth and nail to bring him back.”

Luingam Luithui’s nephew Chingya Luithui who is also the petitioner in this case toldNational Herald, “We have received a major relief by this decision of the court. We belong to the Luithui clan, where elders are given a lot of respect. And anyway, a Naga can never tolerate injustice. We have grown up fighting this case only. But now the Centre knows that it cannot do whatever it wants to the people of the northeast.”
