Man gets himself killed for insurance payout to family

Jaipur, Sept 11: A man in Rajasthan’s Bhilwara district got himself murdered so that his family members could claim ₹50 lakh insurance he had bought and spend the rest of their life in comfort.

Balbir Kharol (38), a moneylender, took the bizarre decision not because he was debt-ridden, but because he failed to recover money from people who had taken loans from him, according to police.

The two accused, Rajvir Singh and Sunil Yadav, who were arrested on Monday for killing Kharol, revealed during interrogation that the moneylender was initially considering to orchestrate his death in an accident but was doubtful he might survive, Superintendent of Police Harendra Mahawar said on Tuesday.

“This is a very unusual thing, but this is what the murder accused have revealed,” the SP said.

Kharol had lent nearly ₹20 lakh to different people but was unable to recover the amount. For the last six months, he did not receive any payment, Mr. Mahawar said. He then planned his own murder so that his family can get the insured amount and lead an easy life, the officer said.

Kharol had bought the insurance policy from a private bank a month ago and paid the first premium. He then hired Singh and Yadav and promised to pay them ₹80,000 for executing the murder, the SP said. The accused were arrested on the basis of Kharol’s call details and a CCTV footage.

New Delhi, Sept 16: Delhi Police on Wednesday filed a chargesheet before a city court under the stringent law Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA) and other sections against 15 persons for larger conspiracy in the North-East Delhi riots case that occurred in February. Special cell of the Delhi Police told the court that it has relied upon CD-R and Whatsapp chats. In its chargesheet running into 10,000 pages, the police has listed 747 witnesses and of them 51 have recorded their statements before the magistrate under CRPC 164.

Even as the Delhi Police filed its most recent chargesheet, a group of activists and academicians on Wednesday demanded immediate release of all those booked under the stringent UAPA in relation with the riots cases.

The joint statement was issued by Syeda Hameed, writer and former member of erstwhile Planning Commission of India, senior lawyer Prashant Bhushan, former JNU students' union president Kanhaiya Kumar, CPIML politburo member Kavita Krishnan, journalist Pamela Philipose and former DUTA president Nandita Narain.

"All democratic voices of dissent are being gradually implicated. This includes students, academicians, artists, politicians and activists. We demand an immediate end to this outrageous investigation that is being conducted with prejudice and mala fide intent," the statement stated.

At a press conference earlier in the day, Bhushan said that the group had requested President Ram Nath Kovind to constitute a commission of inquiry.

Recently, the Special Cell also arrested ex-Jawaharlal Nehru University student Umar Khalid under UAPA. Khalid was sent to ten days police remand for allegedly hatching a conspiracy for riots in North-East Delhi in February. Delhi Police also issued summons to filmmakers Rahul Roy and Saba Dewan in relation to the case.

Pinjra Tod members and JNU students Devangana Kalita and Natasha Narwal, JNU student Sharjeel Imam; Jamia Millia Islamia students Asif Iqbal Tanha and Gulfisha Khatoon, former Congress Councillor Ishrat Jahan, Jamia Coordination Committee members Safoora Zargar, Meeran Haider, President of Jamia Alumni Association Shifa-Ur-Rehman, suspended AAP Councillor Tahir Hussain and activist Khalid Saifi have also been booked under UAPA in relation to the case.

Kumaraswamy

Bengaluru, Sept 18: Former Chief Minister of Karnataka HD Kumaraswamy on Thursday urged the Centre to include Kannada and other regional languages in the administration.

The Centre has said 'No' to a question on whether it proposes to amend the constitution to give primacy to Kannada and other regional languages on par with Hindi.

"This is an indication of the rejection of a language. Kannada, like Hindi, is also an official and recognized language. The Centre should include Kannada and other regional languages in the administration," a statement from Kumaraswamy said.

He also stated that Articles 343, 344, and 345 in the Constitution encouraged the promotion of Hindi.

"Let BJP leaders, who talk about changing the Constitution, make an effort to amend the law to give equal primacy to regional languages at par with Hindi. The Centre, which is refusing to give equal primacy to regional languages, must remember that they have formed the government with the support of the non-Hindi speaking Parliamentarians. It is duty-bound to include all official languages in the administration," the former Chief minister said.

He further stated that the Supreme Court had recently directed the Centre that all government orders and publications should be in all the recognized and official languages.

"Besides, the Centre must keep in mind that all languages are equal in a federal system in India," he added.
