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.

30 years since Babri Masjid demolition, here is all you need to know about what happened

It was the longest running commission in India’s history with several extensions granted by various governments.

Babri Masjid demolition

It has been 30 years of the demolition of the Babri Masjid in Uttar Pradesh’s Ayodhya took place on December 6. The destruction actually transpired on the same date in 1992, after which it is considered one of the darkest days in the history of India. The disputed structure, which now is called Ram Mandir has been at the epicenter of many political debates and even has helped political outfits garner votes over this agenda.

The Demolition came after the Hindu outfits and other community people staked claims of the land to be the birthplace of Lord Ram, and alleged that the Mughal emperor who built the mosque in 1528 actually built on Lord Ram’s birthplace.

The day for many Hindu outfits and their supporters is perceived as a glorious triumph over one particular religion. However, contrary to this, many others see it to be as the darkest day in the history of India as the movement for religion came at the cost of lives. The topic of Ram Mandir has always found its way as the crux of many political debates or even has become a buzzword for political leaders to garner votes by milking the name of Ram Mandir.

What led to Babri Masjid’s Demolition?

The Demolition of the Babri Masjid came after a chain of episodes that triggered the Hindu to take law into their own hands. In December 1949, Lord Rams idols were planted inside the Masjid that triggered protests by Hindu and Muslim communities across the county. In 1989, the then Prime Minister, Rajiv Gandhi, gave a nod to Hindu outfits to conduct a ceremony, Shilanyas inside the mosque premises.

LK Advani’s Rath Yatra in the 1990s added on to build a Ram temple on the land of Babri Masjid. Late UP CM, Mulayam Singh Yadav Government’s action also brought the movement to the limelight after they instructed the police to fire at the Hindutva mob who were marching towards Babri Masjid. The firing led to 16 deaths of the Kar Sevaks which included the famous Kothari brothers.

The land of Babri Masjid which is now turned into the land of Ram Mandir was also amongst the leading agenda topics for BJP at that time.

Later, in 1992, the demolition was carried out by the Kar Sevaks or mobilised Hindu outfits namely Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP), RSS, Shiv Sena, and more. Many different organizations joined hands to pull down the 16-Century mosque in the city of Ayodhya on December 6. The demolition was also propelled by BJP’s LK Advani’s Rath Yatra which was carried out in the 1990s and as a ramification, LK Advani was arrested for it later on.

What all happened that day?

The Karsevaks or mobilization of the Hindu outfits aimed to put a conclusion to the Babri Masjid land dispute themselves, after they failed to win the battle on legal grounds. On December 6, 1992, the Kar Sevaks proceeded to carry out their mission and surrounded the Babri Masjid. According to reports, within hours, the Karsevaks successfully demolished the 16-century mosque.

The reason for the demolition was always to reclaim the land which is allegedly the birthplace of Lord Ram and the Hindu groups also claimed that it was also built by demolishing Ram Mandir. Reports also suggest that over 2,000 people were killed during the demolition of Babri Masjid.

Supreme Court’s judgement on the disputed land

The Supreme Court delivered its verdict on the disputed land and ruled in the favor of Ram Lalla who had sought staked claims of the land and had wished to build the temple of Lord Ram on it on November 9, 2019. The Supreme court also allotted five-acre land to the Sunni Waqf Board to build a mosque. It was the longest running commission in India’s history with several extensions granted by various governments.

The construction of the temple was given to Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra Trust’s temple construction committee. The construction had commenced on 5 August 2020 and is expected to be completed by December 2023.

Maharashtra-Karnataka border dispute intensifies, ministers cancel trip, ask for Center's intervention

The border dispute between Karnataka and Maharashtra is taking a violent turn. Following a protest in Belagavi by an organization called Karnataka Rakshana Vedike, trucks with Maharashtra number plates were stopped, vandalised and black ink was applied on them. Several trucks were also pelted with stones.

Belgaum city is at the center of this dispute. Maharashtra has consistently claimed that this Marathi-majority region was wrongfully given to Kannada-majority Karnataka in the language-based reorganization of states in the 1960s. Karnataka has recently resumed its claim on some villages in Maharashtra, triggering a fresh round of acrimony, despite the fact that BJP is the only party in power in both these states.

Ruckus started after the windshield of a truck was damaged during protests today, after large number of protesters blocked traffic carrying the traditional Kannada/Karnataka flag. Large number of Policemen have also been deployed to calm the situation, but the protesters continued to jostle with the police and lay down on the road.

Due to this protest, two Maharashtra ministers, Chandrakant Patil and Shambhuraj Desai, postponed their scheduled visit to Belagavi. On Monday, Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai had said that the yatra could pose a law and order challenge. Maharashtra has appointed Patil and Desai as co-ordination ministers, as the dispute is yet again in the Supreme Court.

Another case of border-line violence was reported in Belagavi about a week ago, at a college festival, when a student waving a Kannada flag was attacked by some Marathi students. Teachers and other staff of the host college in Belagavi’s Tilakwadi intervened to stop the fight and later the police had to start an investigation.

Several political leaders of Maharashtra are asking for Centre’s intervention now. NCP chief Sharad Pawar even said that if Karnataka CM, Basavaraj Bommai is going to make provocative statements, then the Centre should intervene. He also requested Maharastra MPs to take a delegation to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah, since the winter session of the Parliament is beginning tomorrow.

Gautam Navlakha case: Director Vivek Agnihotri issues apology to Delhi HC

Agnihotri said in his affidavit that he had removed his tweets that criticised the judge.

Filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri on Tuesday has expressed regret to the Delhi High Court for criticising Justice S Murlidhar for releasing activist Gautam Navlakha on bail.

In connection with his comments against Justice S. Muralidhar, who was a member of the Bench that placed activist Gautam Navlakha under house arrest in connection with the Bhima Koregaon riots of 2018, the Delhi High Court ordered Vivek Agnihotri, Director of The Kashmir Files, to remain present before the Court on March 16.

Before the Division Bench of Justices Siddharth Mridul and Talwant Singh, Agnihotri offered an unequivocal apology. The Division Bench reviewed his affidavit and underlined that because the case was brought on its own initiative, Agnihotri should be present in court on the subsequent date of hearing.

Following the High Court’s decision to move ex-parte against Agnihotri, the online news source Swarajya, and Consulting Editor of Swarajya Anand Ranganathan for their disparaging remarks against Justice Muralidhar, Agnihotri issued an apology.

Agnihotri said in his affidavit that he had removed his tweets in which he made critical remarks against the judge.

When the case was heard on Tuesday, Amicus Curiae Senior Advocate Arvind Nigam noted that Agnihotri’s argument might be incorrect because Twitter’s affidavit suggested that the microblogging platform, rather not the director, may have deleted Agnihotri’s tweets.

Earlier on November 19, in accordance with the Supreme Court’s ruling mandating that he be placed under house arrest, Navlakha was transferred from Taloja Central Prison to Navi Mumbai.

The National Investigation Agency was criticised by the Supreme Court on November 18 for disobeying its order from November 10 directing NIA to move activist Navlakha from Taloja Prison, where he was being held in connection with the Elgar Parishad Maoist links case, to the house specified by him within the following 24 hours.

The 73-year-old will live in the residence for the next month, but the bench of Justices K.M. Joseph and Hrishikesh Roy allowed NIA to install additional security measures, such as locking the hall grills and shutting the kitchen door leading to the departure point.
