The Supreme Court on Monday granted a four-month jail sentence to fugitive businessman Vijay Mallya for contempt of court. The court also imposed a fine of Rs 2,000 on the former Member of Parliament.

Vijay Mallya was found guilty of contempt of court in 2017 for withholding information from the court. The case was presented before a three-judge bench- Justices UU Lalit, S Ravindra Bhat, and PS Narasimha.

Vijay Mallya is held guilty of transferring USD 40 million to his children in defiance of the court’s order. The businessman didn’t appear before the court despite several orders from Supreme Court.

On February 10, the Supreme Court announced that Vijay Mallya has two weeks left to personally appear or be represented by counsel in the contempt case being brought against him. If he does not, the court would proceed to the next stage.

Vijay Mallya was found guilty on two counts. It was claimed that he was violating the restraint orders by failing to disclose the assets and, on top of that, by giving them to his children.

The Supreme Court said Mallya has been given ample opportunities since November 30 last year to appear before the court either in person or through a lawyer.

Mallya was allegedly not adhering to court orders over the repayment of a loan worth over Rs 9,000 crores. A consortium of banks led by the State Bank of India filed a petition with India’s top court.

The top court last year decided to proceed with the hearing on the severity of the sentence in the contempt case against Vijay Mallya despite the fact that it had waited long enough and couldn’t wait longer now.

Bengaluru: Condoms, contraceptives, cigarettes found in students’ possession in a surprise bag check

Authorities of local schools were shocked by the results of an experiment to monitor cell phone use in the classroom.

In addition to cell phones, the bags of students in Classes 8, 9, and 10 also contained condoms, oral contraceptives, lighters, cigarettes, whiteners, and hefty cash.

Following concerns that kids brought cell phones into the classrooms, some schools started checking students’ baggage. Even the Karnataka Association of Primary and Secondary Schools (KAMS) requested that schools begin checking the students’ baggage. But the result was unexpected.

A few schools held special parent-teacher meetings. The principal of a school in Nagarabhavi remarked, parents were similarly astonished and told the school authorities about rapid behavioural changes in youngsters.

Instead of reprimanding the students, schools decided to carefully handle the problem and sent notes to parents advising counselling. Despite having counselling sessions at the schools, the administrator claimed that the parents were asked to seek outside therapy for children and we gave leave for up to 10 days to such students.

A school principal said, condom was discovered in a Class 10 girl’s luggage. When questioned, she pointed the finger at her peers or the people at the private coaching she attends.

According to KAMS general secretary D Shashi Kumar, surprise bag checks were conducted in 80 per cent of the schools. One student’s bag contained oral contraceptives (i-Pills). Aside from that, water bottles contained alcohol, he added.

Kumar also said that the schools are having trouble getting over this shock. It was found that students were resorting to abusive language, were bullying their peers and even teachers, and making inappropriate gestures. Children as young as Class 5 exhibit this type of behaviour, he added.

Parental supervision was suggested by Dr A Jagadish, a specialist psychiatrist at Abhaya Hospital. Sharing an instance, Dr Jagdish said that a single mother discovered a condom in the shoe rack of her 14-year-old son. A few kids enjoy experimenting and engaging in these kinds of activities. Smoking, which can lead to drug addiction, and excessive interaction with people of the opposite sex that could result in physical contact are examples of this. The doctor has advised parents to mentor their children.
