Lucknow, May 4: The violence and barbarism unleashed by the activists of Hindu Yuva Vahini (HYV) in Uttar Pradesh in recent days has triggered alarm bells among state BJP leaders, who believe that non-BJP Hindutva group is harming the image of the government.

Pehlu-Khan
HYV activists had recently lynched an old Muslim man to death in UP’s Bulandshahar district allegedly for protecting two lovers of different communities from the vigilantes.

The seniors voiced their unease about the dominance of HYV, an outfit formed by Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, at the state BJP executive committee meeting.

Ghulam Ahmed, a resident of Sohi village in the district, was beaten to death by suspected members of the outfit on Tuesday.

The police on Wednesday arrested 14 people in connection with the lynching. Incidentally, it was not the first time that HYV activists had turned murders since Adityanath assumed charge of the state in March.

They had earlier publicly assaulted a Muslim youth and dragged him to the police station, accusing him of what they termed love jihad.

Last month, scores of HYV activists had barged into a church in Maharajganj district during a prayer and assaulted the priests, saying they were “forcing'” people to convert to Christianity.

Back-stabbers, beware

State BJP president Keshav Prasad Maurya, while addressing the executive committee meeting, dropped enough indication that he was referring to HYV when he said that some people who were not part of the BJP were trying to sideline genuine party workers and bringing a bad name to the government.

“Any attempt to sideline genuine workers will not be tolerated... we will not allow outsiders to push our workers behind... we will not spare back-stabbers,” Maurya said at the meeting,which concluded on Tuesday. Though Adityanath was present when Maurya made the remarks, he chose to remain silent.

State BJP sources said that similar concerns had been aired during the party leaders’ meeting with RSS?functionaries here a few days ago.

College boy held in lynching case

The Alwar police on Tuesday detained a 17-year-old boy in connection with the Pehlu Khan lynching case. The accused was identified on the basis of a video footage, which had gone viral following the attack, said the police.

In the video, the accused, who is a Class 12 student, could be clearly seen assaulting Khan. OnApril 1, Khan and four others were assaulted when they were transporting cows.

Bengaluru, Jan 8: The Karnataka government is planning to stop Congress workers from participating in the Mekedatu padayatra at Kanakapura border before reaching Mekedatu.

The police department has erected barricades all over the Ramnagar district and deputed 2,000 police personnel to manage the situation as the face-off continues between the ruling BJP and the Opposition Congress on the issue.

Ramnagar district authorities have clamped prohibitory orders in the entire district. As per Congress leaders, thousands of workers are expected to participate in the padayatra from surrounding districts.

The police department sources said that reserved forces and extra staff have been kept ready. They are also ready to initiate action against participants of padayatra and are waiting for the government's instruction in this regard.

On the other hand, Congress sources said that if government resorts to punitive action, it will be good for the Opposition as it will dent the image of the ruling BJP in the state.

Police officers who are in a fix over the issue have decided to take action as per the situation until direct orders come from the government.

The Congress has started preparing for Mekedatu padayatra and made arrangements for cooking and shelter for the workers at choultries and school grounds along the route.

Padaytra on Mekedatu will begin on January 9 and conclude on January 19.

Bengaluru, Jan 10: The Cyber Crime Police have arrested a person for allegedly cheating as many as 26 women on the pretext of marriage.

The accused used matrimonial sites to find his victims. He landed in prison after making an attempt to dupe a woman who works in the police department.

The accused has been identified as Jai Bheem Vittal Padukoti (33), a resident of Vijayapur. The police have seized a luxury car from his possession besides freezing his bank accounts.

The accused got a job in Hescom as a lineman after the death of his father. He was married to Kavitha in 2013 and reportedly killed her following a quarrel. He was imprisoned for two years for this.

Coming out of the prison after securing bail, he resorted to cheating women on the pretext of marrying them to lead a luxurious life. The accused had created fake accounts in matrimonial sites, claiming that he was a section officer in Hescom.

He used to send messages to women that he had liked their profile. Later, he would visit their houses to win the trust of the parents and relatives of the victims. He also took lakhs of rupees from the girls' relatives promising them government jobs.

The accused managed to get the details of the bank accounts of the girls who agreed to marry him. Whenever the victims asked him to return the money, he would threaten them.

The police gathered evidence against the accused for cheating three women after developing physical intimacy with them on the pretext of marrying them.

The accused had cheated 26 women in Shivamogga, Haveri, Bengaluru, Mysuru, Dharwad, Hubballi, Yadgiri and Raichur districts. He had also taken Rs 21.30 lakh from the victims.

The accused ran out of luck after sending a similar request to a woman who worked in the police department. After observing his moves, the victim grew suspicious and informed the police.

Chikkamagaluru, Jan 11: The saffron shawl versus hijab row ended at the Balagadi First Grade College in Koppa taluk of Chikkamagaluru district in Karnataka as students and parents called a truce and agreed not to wear either a hijab or a saffron shawl along with the uniform to the college from Tuesday.

However, the girls will be allowed to wear veils along with uniform. The decision was made at the parents meeting held in the college.

Principal S Ananth addressing the meeting stated that a similar controversy erupted in 2018. Then, a decision was taken to only cover the face with a veil. This time also consent has been taken from all the parents and a decision on veils has been taken.

The college authorities will take strict measures to see that students do not violate discipline on the campus. He also warned that if any student violates the decision taken in the meeting, their parents would be called and they would be issued a transfer certificate.

MLA Raje Gowda, who also attended the meeting, said the students must maintain discipline on the campus. The behaviour should not be provoking and students must focus on studies and follow the decision taken at the meeting.

The row erupted recently when a group of students started attending classes in hijabs. In retaliation to this, another group of students started wearing saffron scarves and shawls to the college.

The students last week staged a protest by boycotting classes for allowing some of the students to wear a hijab. The students said that uniform norms were violated by some students who wear a hijab along with the uniform. If they are allowed to wear hijabs, then they must also be allowed to come with saffron scarves and shawls, the agitating students demanded.
