ABVP allegedly beat up Delhi University students

Several Delhi University students campaigning for professor GN Saibaba’s release and four others were allegedly beaten up by Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) members on December 1 around 4 pm.

The incident took place during a protest organized by Bhagat Singh Chhatra Ekta Manch (BSCEM). Students from the Campaign Against State Repression (CASR) were campaigning on the DU campus when they were allegedly attacked with stones first, then with lathis, reports said.

Ravinder Singh, a final-year law student and the incumbent president of Bhagat Singh Chatra Ekta Manch, said around 10 to 12 students were holding a campaign to spread awareness about GN Saibaba’s unjust incarceration.

Out of the blue, 40–50 ABVP students attacked them with lathis. Many students were injured, he added. Protestor Rajveer said his friend was hit with a brick, while another was pinned down and beaten up.

The injured students were immediately rushed to the Hindu Rao Hospital. The students who were seeking treatment at the hospital allege that 40 to 50 people also surrounded the hospital and threatened them.

Ehtmam, a law graduate from Jamia Millia Islamia who was a part of the campaign, claimed that ABVP said that if they step out of the hospital, they will attack them again. This threat was given in front of police officials, he stated.

Ravinder said that while some of the alleged attackers had the Aam Aadmi Party’s flag tied to their knees, he was certain that they all were from the ABVP.

Both parties accused each other of initiating the brawl. The ABVP has filed a complaint against the students at the Maurice Nagar Police Station. However, there is no immediate action from the police.

In the meantime, the ABVP said that the group mistreated a female ABVP activist and got into a physical altercation with some of its members.

Professor GN Saibaba was arrested owing to allegations of being linked to Maoists.

Fali S Nariman tribute: Senior Advocate Pradeep Rai says jurist’s death has left irreplaceable void for legal fraternity

Despite enjoying a good lifestyle, Fali S Nariman ensured his actions aligned with legal principles.

Senior Advocate Pradeep Rai mourned the passing of constitutional jurist Fali S Nariman as an immense loss to the legal fraternity.

Reacting to the death of the veteran jurist on Wednesday, Rai said it has left an irreplaceable void. Fali S Nariman’s profound influence on future generations and the legal field is unmistakable.

The Senior Advocate recounted his interactions with the jurist. “Each interaction with him provided invaluable learning experiences, marked by his humility,” he said.

Reflecting on instances like the Office of Profit matter involving Rajya Sabha MP Jaya Bachchan, Nariman, despite representing her, prioritized legal integrity and the responsibility as an officer of the court over personal affiliations.

Engaging him as counsel for Jaya Bachchan, the Supreme Court was almost convinced that she did not fall within the ambit of office of profit. However, Justice YK Sabharwal requested Nariman’s opinion, and he asserted that the court was incorrect in not considering the benefits attached to the office of Uttar Pradesh Film Development Corporation. “This illustrates the responsibility of a senior lawyer when providing opinions to the court,” he reminisced.

In another case concerning Ruby Hospital in Kolkata, Nariman’s dedication to his client wavered when appointed as the adjudicator by the court, as he opined against his client in alignment with the duties of an officer of the court, Rai said.

Nariman was a disciplined man who enjoyed a good lifestyle, but he ensured his actions aligned with legal principles. His demise leaves an irreplaceable void in our legal fraternity. He had a unique working style from a bygone era, relying on profound knowledge and research methods without the aid of computers.

Recalling his generosity, Rai said Nariman had the biggest chamber in the old block of the Supreme Court and when the bar required a room for medical facilities to be created for lawyers, Nariman was the first person who offered his chamber and gave it to the bar. Thereafter, he started sitting in Library Number Two and continued working from there only.

Congress says I-T Department withdrew Rs 65 crore from its bank accounts, asks if BJP pays income tax

The I-T Department mandated banks to transfer over Rs 65 crores from INC, IYC, and NSUI accounts to the government.

The Congress party on Wednesday said that the Income Tax Department had withdrawn a sum of Rs 65 crore from its accounts in several banks undemocratically even when the case is sub judice and being heard by the Income Tax Appellate Tribunal (ITAT).

The Congress leader Ajay Maken slammed the Centre asking if the BJP also pays income tax. Maken further charged on BJP asking if is it common for national political parties to pay income tax, adding that he questioned why then is the Congress party facing an unprecedented demand of Rs210 crores.

Speaking to reporters, the Congress treasurer Maken said that the I-T Department had written to various banks to withdraw a sum of Rs 65 crore from different bank accounts of the Congress and Indian Youth Congress in view of the demand raised by the I-T authorities earlier, despite the appellate authorities hearing the case.

The Congress treasurer further said that even when the ITAT, which the Congress had moved against the I-Tax department’s claim of Rs 210 crore as recovery for discrepancies in previous tax returns has been stayed and a lien has been marked, the tax authorities have resorted to undemocratic action by taking out the amount from their accounts.

On Tuesday, the I-T Department mandated banks to transfer over Rs 65 crores from INC, IYC, and NSUI accounts to the government, which are Rs 5 crores from IYC and NSUI, and Rs 60.25 crores from INC, marking a concerning move by the BJP Government.

About today’s ITAT proceedings, Maken informed that Congress presented their case and the hearing will continue tomorrow. The funds in question were raised through grassroots efforts, including crowdfunding and membership drives by the IYC and NSUI, the Congress leader added.

Expressing their belief in the judiciary, the Congress also said that such a situation raises a crucial question about the state of democracy.

Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal says Lord Krishna speaking through Chief Justice Chandrachud on Supreme Court’s Chandigarh elections verdict

There was so much sin that lord Krishna decided to interfere himself.

Delhi Chief Minister and AAP convenor Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday lauded Chief Justice of India DY Chandrachud saying, Lord Krishna was speaking through CJI Chandrachud while announcing the verdict on Chandigarh mayoral elections.

Addressing the Delhi Assembly, Kejriwal hit out at the BJP and said the situation in the country is such that there is unrighteousness everywhere. Speaking on Manish Sisodia and Satyendra Jain, said those who built schools and hospitals for people are in jail today. Pointing out to the BJP, Kejriwal further said that even if people have been fed up with them, they are confident that they’ll win 370 seats.

He also questioned how BJP will win 370 seats, adding that, there must be something wrong, maybe EVM has been fixed or something else. There was so much sin that lord Krishna decided to interfere himself, he charged. It was no coincidence that cameras captured BJP’s sins in Chandigarh’s mayoral election and the way SC had given its verdict, it seems god was speaking through CJI Chandrachud.

He said that few people hesitate to cast their vote because they think there has been an issue with EVM but Kejriwal still appealed to them to cast their vote and leave the rest thing on god. Speaking on Anil Masih, who was involved in tempering voting paper in Chandigarh Mayoral polls, said he was just a pawn and he has been given punishment but his masters should be punished as well.

Hitting out at Centre, Kejriwal said that Adharma (unrighteousness) has been spread everywhere, and people have started thinking that truth and honesty have no place. Good people lost their faith due to the dominance of Adharma.

He further said that, in such circumstances, god established faith by taking out people from the obstacles. In this country, a similar situation has emerged as he said in Hindi, Charon Taraf Adharma Ka Bolbala Hai (everywhere there is a dominance of unrighteousness). People have begun thinking that there was no point in walking on the path of truth, those who were indulged in wrong acts and conspiring have been rising, the AAP convenor added.
