The initial request from the NIA was for 12-days custody of Lawrence Bishnoi. Additionally, the central agency requested authorisation to put handcuffs on Bishnoi while he was being held, but the court denied the request citing stringent guidelines issued by the Supreme Court of India.

Notably, in March this year, the investigating agencies had intercepted a mobile number, which belonged to the terrorists associated with the infamous terrorist organization Indian Mujahideen, which was being used in Delhi’s Tihar Jail.

The IM terrorists are accused of carrying out bomb blasts and other terrorist incidents in many places in the country. Delhi Police Special Cell got alerted when this number was intercepted. After tracing the location of this number, several other numbers related to it were intercepted and their conversations were heard, then this number was claimed by Delhi Police to be used by Lawrence Bishnoi.

At that time, Lawrence Bishnoi was lodged in Jail No.8 of Tihar. It was only after this that the NIA started cracking down on him.

NIA had searched Bishnoi’s hideouts in September as well

On September 12, large-scale raids were conducted on the bases of about 60 gangsters in North Indian states, including Lawrence Bishnoi. This raid was done after getting evidence of these gangsters having links with Khalistani terrorists as well as many other terrorist organisations. During this, dozens of places were searched in Delhi-NCR, Haryana and Punjab. All these gangsters are accused of smuggling foreign weapons and making them available to terrorists.

Bishnoi is also accused of Singer Sidhu Moose Wala murder

Lawrence Bishnoi’s name was cropped in the murder of famous Punjabi singer Sidhu Moose Wala. Deepak Tinu, who was caught by the police in this case, is the right hand of Lawrence. After this, the Punjab Police also took Lawrence on remand and at present he was lodged in Bathinda Jail in this case.

Carried out recce to kill Salman Khan

During the investigation of the murder of Sidhu Moose Wala, a hit list of Lawrence Bishnoi also came to the fore, in which besides actor Salman Khan, filmmaker Karan Johar was also on his target.

It was known that Bishnoi had got recce carried out to get Salman murdered, but before this work could be done, Lawrence’s shooter was caught by the police and this entire planning was in vain. This gang wanted to extort Rs 5 crore from Karan Johar. Vikram Brar, brother of gangster Goldie Brar, located in Canada, works hand in glove with Bishnoi.

Lok Sabha Elections: Voter turnout 62.02% in Tamil Nadu till 5pm

The voter turnout in Tamil Nadu stands at 62.02%, while Uttar Pradesh records a turnout of 57.5%. Meanwhile, in West Bengal, voter participation surges to 77.5% as of 5 pm.

The Lok Sabha elections 2024 began today, marking the onset of the world’s largest electoral event. Voting ended in all 39 Lok Sabha constituencies in Tamil Nadu with a total voter turnout of 62.02%. State BJP chief and Coimbatore Lok Sabha constituency candidate K Annamalai said, they were getting complaints from a large number of voters that their names were missing from the voters’ list.

This incident happened in many places. Annamalai said they are demanding re-poll in places where the names of a large number of voters were missing.He said they had a doubt that there was some political interference because the names of a large number of BJP caders were missing from the voters list.

 The voters in South Chennai showed lukewarm interest to participate in the election process and had a total voter turnout of 57.04% till 5pm. Although the overall percentage is poor, some areas like Thiruvanmiyur witnessed brisk polling from 7am onwards. Elderly, middle aged and young voters turned up and it was a family outing for many as they cast their vote.

Corporation volunteers assisted senior citizens with wheelchairs and guided them to their respective polling booths. The hot weather also had an impact on the polling as it reduced the voter turnout as many booths in the corporation school in MGR Nagar were seen deserted around noon. Senior citizens showed courage as they reached the polling booths in private vehicles to exercise their franchise.

Most of the polling booths had shamianas for voters so that they could wait in a queue. Some people even found refuge in the nearby buildings to save themselves from the scorching heat. The polling officials gave instructions to the voters to keep their phones switched off while they exercised their franchise. The security personnel at the polling booth also regulated traffic outside the polling booth in MGR Nagar.

Deserted by key supporters, the Kamal Nath story looks set to wind to an end in Chhindwara

Nath’s closest allies in his near 50-year reign—Deepak Saxena and Kamlesh Shah—have deserted him. His local team of corporators has also decided to jump ship leaving a gaping hole in Nath’s campaign trail.

The Congress has lost Chhindwara only once since Independence when the wily Sunderlal Patwa was sent there by Atal Bihari Vajpayee to test Kamal Nath’s hold on the constituency. Patwa won the 1997 by-election by a slim margin in the backdrop of Nath having forced his wife to first contest and later vacate the seat for him. Nath, however, returned to his winning ways the very next year and has won the seat nine times.

It seems possible that Chhindwara, the lone surviving Congress seat, will be lost again this time and may be forever. A day ahead of polling, the town was drowned in saffron. Not so much the effect of vigorous campaigning by Vivek Sahu of the BJP but the Ram Navami festival which brought out saffron flags on every rooftop.  The effect is likely to last since the polling is today. At 77, Nath is unlikely to contest another election here and his son Nakul seems like a pale shadow of his father unable to even make a forceful speech. The days of running Chhindwara from Shikarpur kothi are gone.

Nath’s closest allies in his near 50-year reign—Deepak Saxena and Kamlesh Shah—have deserted him. His local team of corporators has also decided to jump ship leaving a gaping hole in Nath’s campaign trail. Nakul had won by a margin of 37,000 votes in 2019 and the biggest lead had come from Kamlesh’s Amarwada Assembly segment. With Saxena in control of Chhindwara and forced to show his strength in his new party, it is highly likely that Nakul will not be depending on these segments. Instead, the Congress campaign was focused on Pandhurna, Parasia and Chaurai.

Amit Shah was in the region a couple of days ago and warned all BJP workers—old and new—against lethargy. His message was clear, the BJP wants all 29 seats this time. Cabinet Minister Kailash Vijayvargiya is camped here and using all his political acumen for the desired results. One such tactic was to raid the Shikarpur Kothi of Kamal Nath for his assistant Miglani who handles almost everything for him. With Miglani temporarily neutralised, BJP is best placed to repeat its win in Chhindwara in 1997.
