Upon his joining, the chief minister said Moose Wala is an "international icon". "I am sure he will make the Congress party proud, I welcome him on behalf of Congress," Channi said, according to news agency ANI.

Punjabi singer Sidhu Moose Wala on Friday joined the Congress ahead of the legislative assembly elections. A widely popular face of Punjab who has been vocal about his support to the farmers' agitation, Mossewala was inducted into the party by Punjab chief minister Charanjit Singh Channi and the party's state chief Navjot Singh Sidhu.

Upon his joining, the chief minister said Moose Wala is an "international icon". "I am sure he will make the Congress party proud, I welcome him on behalf of Congress," Channi said, according to news agency ANI.

"Moose Wala has won the hearts of everyone. He is a son of a farmer and his father is an ex-army officer," Channi said. "I am sure he is going to be a youth icon," he added.

It is not clear whether Moose Wala, whose real name is Shubhdeep Singh Sidhu, will contest in the upcoming assembly elections, slated to be held next year. Speaking on the same, Channi said, it is yet to be decided.

For now, he will meet the high command of the party, Channi said.

After joining the Congress, Moose Wala said that one of the reasons to join the Congress is to raise the voice of Punjabis. "It's my first press conference. Just three years ago, I started singing. Now after four years, I am taking a new step. Mansa is not that much developed, a part of this area raised me, I will raise my voice from here," he said.

The singer hails from a small village of Punjab named Moosa in the Mansa district of Punjab. His mother is a village head. He has been subject to criticism by some for promoting violence and gun culture in his songs. Source : ht

On sitting AAP legislators jumping ship, Mann said this is because the AAP party was giving opportunity to those who have worked on grassroots levels, rather than those who remained missing after the polls.

Co-president of the Aam Aadmi Party’s youth wing Anmol Gagan Mann on Monday said that AAP will declare its chief ministerial candidate before any other party.

Mann, who was in town to attend a meeting called by Atam Nagar constituency in-charge Kulwant Singh Sidhu, said, “ The schools in New Delhi are now better than private institutes, similarly healthcare facilities have improved, and unconditional accident insurance has been provided. The Delhi model will be replicated in Punjab, if the AAP is voted to power,” said Mann.

On sitting AAP legislators jumping ship, Mann said, “This is because the party is giving opportunity to those who have worked on grassroots levels, rather than those who remained missing after the polls.”

AAP district president Suresh Goel and other senior leaders including Sharan Pal Makkar were also present.

Traffic snarls

The meeting, which was organised on the busy Daba Road, led to massive traffic chaos. Commuters stranded in traffic jams were seeing lifting their scooters from the pandal. “This is no place to hold a meeting and that too on a Monday.

The accused had kidnapped and buried her neighbour’s two-year-old toddler alive due to rivalry with her parents; the accused was to shift her house the next day.

A day after a woman kidnapped the two-year-old daughter of her neighbour and buried her alive, police said the mother had called the accused after her daughter went missing.

The mother of the victim said the accused, Neelam had kidnapped Dilroz around 2.15pm, while she was playing near the gate of their house.

“I remember calling out to Dilroz, asking her to come inside and sleep for a while. However, when she did not respond, I went to get her, but she was nowhere to be found. One of Neelam’s sons told me that his mother had taken Dilroz on her scooter. I called Neelam, asking her to take care of Dilroz as she is used to sleeping after lunch, but Neelam said Dilroz was not with her. I kept on searching for her. Later, other children playing on the street said they had seen Dilroz with Neelam, after which we alerted the police,” said the victim’s mother, Kiran, who lost consciousness on seeing her daughter’s corpse.

The police scanned CCTV cameras and saw Neelam take away Dilroz. When interrogated, the accused confessed to murder. Neelam and her parents had sold their house and were shifting to a new location. It was their last day in the house and they had shifted most of their things to the new house.

Victim bludgeoned twice, reveals autopsy

The postmortem report on Monday revealed the horror and pain the toddler had to endure before she finally suffocated to death.

The doctors found that the accused, Neelam, had bludgeoned the victim, Dilroz, twice, before burying her in a pit. The three doctors – Dr Ripudaman, Dr Varun Saggar and Dr Gurwinder Kaur – who conducted the postmortem found two injury marks on the toddler’s head –one on the forehead, and one on the back of her head. The injuries were made with a heavy and blunt object or by smashing her head against something hard, they said, while ruling the cause of death to be suffocation.

After postmortem, the body was handed over to the family who carried out the last rites. The accused was remanded two days in police custody.

Kidnapped girl with intention to kill

Sub-Inspector Balkar Singh said Neelam had kidnapped Dilroz with the intention to kill, but had not decided how she would go about it. “When she reached an under-construction colony in the Salem Tabri area, she found a pit in a vacant plot adjoining a field and decided to bury her.”

Neelam said she had beaten up the toddler when she had cried and then had made her lie face down in the pit. She had filled the pit with soil and returned home. The victim’s grandfather, Shaminder Singh, said he had scolded the accused’s sons for creating a ruckus in the street, and she had nursed a grudge against him since the incident. Source : ht

Around 500 people attended Nova Cycles chairman Harmohinder Singh Pahwa’s funeral at the Model Town Extension cremation ground in Ludhiana ; he had suffered a heart attack at Satluj Club.

The sudden death of 77-year-old Harmohinder Singh Pahwa, a visionary entrepreneur and chairman of Nova Cycles, came as a shock to industry colleagues, locals and the who’s who of the industrial hub, who gathered in large numbers to pay their last respects to the doyen of the Ludhiana industry on Monday.

Around 500 people attended Pahwa’s funeral at the Model Town Extension cremation ground in the afternoon. Pahwa had suffered a fatal heart attack at the Satluj Club on Sunday. Club members said he was enjoying a coffee with club members and cracking a joke when he collapsed. He was rushed to the hospital, but could not be revived.

He was also chairperson of Avon Bicycle Components Pvt Ltd and VS Auto Pvt Ltd. He is survived by his son Rohit Pahwa and two daughters.

Initially, the funeral was scheduled to be held at 11am, but it was rescheduled to 3pm so that Pahwa’s daughter who arrived from London could also pay her respects. She reached Delhi at 10am, and a chartered flight arranged by a Ludhiana-based industrialist flew her to Ludhiana.

With a large crowd, replete with prominent personalities from different spheres of life attending the funeral, the traffic police were roped in to make parking arrangements and ensure there was no congestion.

An irreparable loss:Business fraternity

Industrialists, big and small, remembered Pahwa as a humble and good-natured man who was always ready to extend a helping hand.

Pankaj Munjal, chairman and managing director of Hero Cycles, said, “I have known the Pahwa family for a long time, so feel the pain the same way. May his soul rest in peace,” he said.

SS Bhogal of Bhogal Cycles said, “Our family has known each other since the pre-Independence days. After I took over my company in 1972, Pahwa and I became close friends. His death is an irreparable loss to the industry. He was a wonderful human being.”

Badish Jindal, Federation of Punjab Small Industries Association (FOSPIA) chairman said Pahwa would take the back seat and give others the opportunity to prove themselves. “He never worked for credit. He was a pure gentleman,” he said.

Making Ludhiana the Manchester of India

Initially, based in Pakistan’s Sialkot, Pahwa’s family migrated to India during the Partition.

His father settled down in Patna, while Pahwa studied at YPS Patiala.

Later, he assisted his paternal uncle Hans Raj Pahwa, the founder of Avon Cycles in Ludhiana, where he worked as director till 2002.

Now, the group has a turnover of ₹60 crore. He was an active member of different committees, associations and groups and was instrumental in bringing new technology and growth to the cycle industry. Besides Punjab, Nova supplies cycles to Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh, Maharashtra, Gujarat, Assam, Jharkhand, Odisha, Uttar Pradesh, and Andaman and Nicobar Islands under different welfare schemes.
