SC seeks reply from Vodafone Airtel on CBIs plea alleging noncooperation

first_imgNew Delhi: The Supreme Court on Friday sought reply form Vodafone and Airtel on a plea by the CBI alleging that they were not cooperating with the investigation in the Saradha chit fund case.A bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi listed the agency’s plea on April 8 after the mobile service providers denied the allegations. A bench also comprising Justices Deepak Gupta and Sanjiv Khanna was told by Solicitor General Tushar Mehta appearing for the CBI that there was complete lawlessness and anarchy in West Bengal. He said recently police tried to arrest a custom officer for checking the baggage of wife of a TMC leader at the international airport in Kolkata. Also Read – Uddhav bats for ‘Sena CM’He said the complete incident was recorded in the CCTV. The agency had recently filed a status report relating to the interrogation of the then Kolkata Police commissioner Rajeev Kumar in connection with the scam. The apex court had on March 26 termed as “very very serious” the revelations made by the CBI in its status report relating to interrogation of Kumar. The top court had said that it cannot “close its eyes” if some “very very serious facts” were disclosed to it and directed the agency to file an application seeking appropriate relief against Kumar, who had earlier headed the state SIT to probe the chit fund scam. Also Read – Farooq demands unconditional release of all detainees in J&KThe top court had refused to drop the contempt proceedings against the West Bengal DGP, the chief secretary and Kumar. It was hearing CBI’s contempt application against various senior officials of the West Bengal government on the ground of non-cooperation in its probe and alleged tampering of evidence, including call data records (CDRs) of key accused and Sardha group CMD Sudipta Sen and Debjani Mukherjee. The court, which had earlier directed the CBI director to file an affidavit giving details about the alleged contempt committed by West Bengal cops and others in the case, had perused the reply of the CBI chief and the fresh status report, pertaining to quizzing of Kumar. The agency had earlier alleged non-cooperation on the West Bengal Police for providing incomplete information and tampering with details to the probe agency. The apex court had said that the allegations made by the CBI were serious enough and it was an “obligation” on part of the agency to disclose full details of the alleged contempt committed by the then police commissioner.last_img read more

Brooks Koepka Would Have Made History Whether He Won Or Lost

While Long Island’s ostentatiously difficult public golf course chewed up the world’s best players — only six players in the 156-man field finished below par — the 29-year-old finished with an eight-under-par 272 and fought off a huge scare from Dustin Johnson — the world’s No. 1 player. With the wire-to-wire win, Koepka is the first golfer to hold back-to-back, concurrent major titles. And of the last nine championships played, the hulking West Palm Beach native has claimed four.Koepka entered Sunday with a seven-stroke lead, a lead no golfer had ever blown at the tournament after 54 holes. He nearly blew it anyway. Johnson, who has similar ball-shaping skills, uses an equally intense workout regimen and is one of Koepka’s best friends, mounted a furious comeback, firing a 69 while leading the field in strokes gained off the tee (2.32), according to Data Golf. Johnson pulled within a single stroke of the lead with three holes remaining, but bogeyed two consecutive holes to fall out of contention. Koepka rallied to stem the tide and ended his day by hoisting the Wanamaker Trophy.This was quite the departure from Thursday, when Koepka carded a course-record 63, a showcase he aptly described as “a crazy day.” With Koekpa four shots clear of the field, Las Vegas bookmakers installed him with 5-to-4 odds to win after one day of competition. He quickly made those odds seem conservative as he followed it up with a 65 to extend the lead. Paired with Tiger Woods in the opening two rounds, Koepka steamrolled golf’s prodigal son by 17 strokes across two days.Golf has become a power-driven sport, and few, if any, people on tour supply more than Koepka, who frequently appears to be taking a machete to his ball. He certainly set the standard this week, leading the field in strokes gained tee-to-green in each of the first three rounds and in total, according to Data Golf. But even that undersells how precise his irons were, as Koepka also led the tournament in strokes gained on shots approaching the green.On golf’s biggest stages, Koepka shows up to win. It makes you wonder: Why doesn’t he collect more trophies in the PGA Tour’s garden-variety events? With two non-major PGA Tour wins and one European Tour title, Koepka’s major wins now outnumber his minor ones. More than half (57.1 percent) of his career wins have come at major championships, which is a higher share than any other active golfer who has won at least two majors. For comparison, less than 18 percent of Woods’s career victories have come at majors. In most of Koepka’s victories, the entire tournament feels calculated, as though he’s playing out a simulation that he ran through a thousand times before he took the course. Get-off-your-seat moments are few and far between with Koepka, who looks as though he was engineered in a lab and delivers relentless power while leaving events largely lusterless. Some of that is because Koepka has the demeanor of a world-class poker player. Some of it is how easily he lays waste to a golf course. But on Sunday, we learned that golf’s RoboCop can still bleed. The wheels fell off, and he had to dig deep to finish off his best friend. But Koepka did just that, making history as he evolved into a new type of champion: one who’s proved he can survive.

Update on Restoration of Government Services post Hurricane Irma and Maria

first_img Recommended for you Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppGrand Turk, Turks and Caicos Islands – February 8, 2018 –  Following on from the passage of Hurricanes Irma and Maria, government services have resumed across all sectors, but it is important for the general public and our clients to be aware that there remain challenges in a number of key areas which currently impact service delivery.The islands of Grand Turk, South Caicos and Salt Cay which account for 54% of government staff, suffered significant damage to government infrastructure during the last hurricane season.  This is in addition to damage to schools which accounted for the majority of loss.As of today there remain a significant number of displaced departments which are currently being housed within other departments whilst they await repairs to government infrastructure.  This includes critical departments such as the Information Technology, Customs, Planning, Land Registry, Public Works, Land Survey, Internal Audit and other departments on the island of Grand Turk.  Following on from the Hurricanes the Ministry of Infrastructure conducted damage assessments and costing on all government buildings.In the area of communication, we have noted a marked improvement in communication services on the island of Grand Turk which should result in the full functionality of department phones.  To this end persons can now once again reach departments through the switchboard numbers 946-2801 and 338-2801, while a full listing of government direct extensions is also posted on the governments website for easy reference.  Kindly note that the departments telephone lines operate on a Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP) system which relies on the stability of the network itself.Revenue and Expenditure systems have suffered a number of challenges during recent months due to internet and communication instability, but with recent improvements by telecommunication providers this should shortly be resolved.We take the opportunity to thank our clients for their patience during this period and do hope that we can work to expeditiously resolve all remaining concerns.Please see below an updated listing of the affected departments new operating locations:Customs Department – Treasury Department, Front StreetCentral Information Technology Unit – Treasury Department, Front StreetPublic Works Department – Former Chief Minister’s Office, Government Compound, Pond StreetPlanning Department – Former Chief Minister’s Office, Government Compound, Pond StreetWater Undertaking Department – Former Chief Minister’s Office, Government Compound, Pond StreetLand Registry Department – Attorney General’s Chambers, Waterloo Plaza, Airport RoadValuation Department – Attorney General’s Chambers, Waterloo Plaza, Airport RoadSurvey and Mapping Department – Attorney General’s Chambers, Waterloo Plaza, Airport RoadCrown Land Unit – Attorney General’s Chambers, Waterloo Plaza, Airport RoadElections Department – Strategic Policy and Planning Unit, South BaseInternal Audit Department – Audit Department, Tony Clarke Office ComplexRoad Safety Department – Printing Department, Ruthann Lightbourne PlazaMinistry of Education, Youth and Sports – Franklyn Misick Building, Church FollyTCIG Press ReleasePhoto by Magnetic Media, Providenciales Police Headquarters after Hurricane Irma Editorial: Listen to your Mama TCI Premier Responds To Beaches’ Letter Announcing Closure Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items:#hurricaneirmatci, #hurricanemariatci, TCIG Seriously, Sixth Form registration begins at Clement Howell High Aug 15last_img read more

Benitez reveals the game plan that defeated Man City

first_imgRafael Benitez revealed that Newcastle United’s willingness to stick to their game plan was key behind their shock comeback 2-1 win over Manchester City.Sergio Aguero’s goal in the opening 24 seconds of the game at St James’ Park appeared to set City on route to a 19th Premier League win this season.But things soon began to change when Aguero later had a goal disallowed after referee Paul Tierney deemed that Kevin De Bruyne had taken a free-kick before he gave it the go-ahead with City rarely troubling Newcastle keeper Martin Dubravka afterwards.Benitez’s side began to grow in confidence in front of their home crowd and were awarded for their patience when Salomon Rondon scored an equaliser in the 66th-minute.Matt Ritchie then fired home a penalty in the final 10 minutes of the match after Fernandinho had fouled Sean Longstaff in the area to hand Newcastle all three points.Speaking after the victory, a jubilant Benitez praised the reaction of his squad following the very early setback by sticking to their game plan.“We had a game plan – it was not to concede a goal in the first minute,” said Benitez, according to Liverpool Echo.“The reaction of the players was important. We said in the half-time to stay in the game. The fans appreciate how we played and the way we won against a very good team. We stuck with our game plan.Tammy Abraham, ChelseaChelsea hat-trick hero Tammy Abraham hopes for more Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Tammy Abraham hopes this season will be his big breakthrough at Chelsea after firing his first hat-trick for the club in Saturday’s 5-2 win at Wolves.“We were good enough to score two and lucky enough not to concede. Overall we needed to win one of these games.“I think they were surprised they scored so early and maybe they had more confidence they could win. There’s pressure and I think that was another factor – a draw wasn’t enough for them.”The win moves Newcastle up to 14th-place in the Premier League and, crucially, five points above the drop zone.Meanwhile, City’s title hopes suffered a major dent with Pep Guardiola’s men sitting six points behind leaders Liverpool and having played one more game than their rivals.FULL TIME – Newcastle United 2 Manchester City 1.
