first_imgPune: Providing yet another lifeline to fraud-accused builder Deepak S. Kulkarni, the Supreme Court on Friday granted the developer an extension of four weeks to repay investors. However, while disposing off the special leave petition (SLP), the Bench comprising Justices Adarsh Kumar Goel and Uday Umesh Lalit made it clear that no further extension would be granted after January 19, 2018. “We respect the Supreme Court’s directive. All money will be returned to investors within the stipulated time frame [January 19, 2018] as directed by the court. No one will be cheated of their rightful money. The apex court, through its order, has expressed confidence in us. We hope that our business will soon be back on track,” said Mr. Kulkarni, through a statement.The developer and his wife, Hemanti, accused of duping thousands of investors across Pune, Mumbai and Kolhapur, had filed an online SLP in Supreme Court on December 20 seeking further extension of interim relief in a bid to stave off arrest.On December 19, the Bombay High Court, after providing an extended breather to him for a fortnight, had cancelled Mr. Kulkarni’s adinterim relief, following which the Pune police claimed the builder was ‘absconding’.The HC rejected any extension of Mr. Kulkarni’s relief after the DSK Group failed deposit ₹50 crore in the court registry within the stipulated fortnight.A total five of FIRs across Pune, Mumbai and Kolhapur have been lodged against the developer and his family since October 28, with more than 3,000 investors filing cheating complaints against Mr. Kulkarni.More than 8,000 persons, a majority of them senior citizens, are said to have invested in the DSK group’s fixed deposit (FD) scheme. The developer is said to owe an excess of ₹600 crore to investors. On November 8, a special court in Pune had quashed the interim bail application of Mr. Kulkarni and his wife.The Kulkarnis, facing prospect of arrest, had then moved the Bombay High Court against the Pune court’s order and were granted interim relief, which was extended periodically for nearly a month on promise of repayment to investors.last_img read more

first_imgCongress president Rahul Gandhi on Monday said that attacks on migrant north Indian workers in Gujarat is a sign of “a crumbling establishment and economy.”‘Terror of poverty’ “There is no bigger terror than poverty. The root of the violence in Gujarat lies in unemployment and closed factories. The system and the economy are both crumbling. Targeting migrant workers is absolutely wrong. I will stand completely against it,” Mr. Gandhi tweeted in Hindi.Earlier, the Congress said Chief Minister Vijay Rupani does not have the right to continue in his position if he cannot stop the violence against migrant workers.“The recent incidents in Gujarat, where more than 40,000 people from Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and Rajasthan are being beaten up and forced to flee is part of a conspiracy that needs to be exposed,” said Congress spokesperson Priyanka Chaturvedi.Following the rape of a 14-month-old girl in Gujarat’s Sabarkantha last week, allegedly committed by a migrant worker from Bihar, there has been a backlash against workers from Bihar and U.P. in the State.Asked to comment on reports that Thakore Sena — an organisation associated with Congress lawmaker Alpesh Thakore — was behind some of the mob attacks on migrant workers, Ms. Chaturvedi said,“When they cannot control a situation, they use the patented technique of blaming the Opposition.”“The BJP is using this to carry out a ghar wapsi of the workers from Bihar and U.P.,” she added.last_img read more

first_imgFollowing the nationwide launch of the ‘Mera Parivar-Bhajapa Parivar’ campaign last week, the Himachal Pradesh Congress has approached the Election Commission of India protesting against the hoisting of BJP flags on the houses of beneficiaries of Central government’s schemes, terming it ‘unconstitutional’.The Himachal unit of the Congress has highlighted the issue in a letter to the EC. Ahead of the Lok Sabha elections, the BJP has launched the ‘Mera Parivar-Bhajapa Parivar’ campaign, through which it plans to reach out to five crore families of party workers by unfurling its flags across the country.Himachal Pradesh Congress Committee president Kuldeep Rathore told The Hindu that benefits to the people under various schemes were given by the government and not by a political party. Hence, it cannot be politicised by such a campaign.“…the motive behind such action is to derive benefit in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. The action is unconstitutional, coercive and breach of privacy of the individual. The benefits are given by the government and not by any political party,” Mr. Rathore has written in the letter addressed to the EC.Urging the ECI to immediately ask the BJP to stop from hoisting party flags, Mr. Rathore wrote, “…these actions will send a wrong signal among the masses and create unrest in society. Hence, the Commission is requested to restrain the BJP from indulging in such action.”Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur had on February 12 hoisted party flags on the houses of a few party workers at Chhota Shimla in Shimla, kicking off the ‘Mera Parivar-Bhajapa Parivar’ campaign in the State.last_img read more

first_imgReplantation of an amputated part is ideally performed within 4 to 6 hours after injury, but success has been reported up to 24 hours after the injury if the amputated part has been cooled. During surgery, bone, tendon, ligaments, nerves, and vessels are reattached. Success depends upon if the blood supply can fully be restored to the amputated portion and if the nerves reattach successfully. Proper care of the amputated part is vital to successful replantation. Under proper conditions, the long-term prognosis for the restoration of function in an amputated part is quite good.Review Date:8/11/2012Reviewed By:Linda J.

first_imgITF rules clearly state that a doubles team has to be nominated by the national association COMMENT COMMENTS June 10, 2016 × SHARE SHARE EMAIL In a move which could have knocked Leander Paes out of Olympic reckoning, Rohan Bopanna today picked Saketh Myneni as his preferred partner for the men’s doubles event at the Rio Games, but the AITA is set to reject his demand.Bopanna, who earned India a direct entry in the men’s doubles event courtesy his top-10 rank, issued a statement that he has told AITA about his choice earlier in the day.“I look forward to representing India at my second Olympics and consider it a privilege, responsibility and honour. A Direct Acceptance provides me the right to nominate my men’s doubles partner, an opportunity for me to exercise my judgment as to the best possible partner for me. I am looking forward to the support and good wishes of all concerned in the lead-up to the Olympics,” Bopanna said in a statement.He did not mention the name of the player but AITA sources told PTI that Bopanna has named 28-year-old Myneni as his choice.“Yes, he wants to play with Myneni and not Leander,” an AITA source said.Paes, a winner of 18 Grand Slam titles, is eyeing a record seventh Olympics, but Bopanna’s choice reflects that he does not bother about the personal milestone of India’s most accomplished tennis player.Bopanna is justified in picking a partner of his choice since rules permit him to do so but at the same time it holds true that even if Bopanna had ended 11 in the world rankings on the cut-off date, he and Paes with their combined rank would have made the draw, by a margin if not comfortably.’Not a wise move’Sources claimed AITA acknowledged Bopanna’s preference but it is understood they would not like the player to dictate terms.“It’s not a wise move. People are not going to forget if Paes happens to miss this Olympics because of Rohan… he will face lots of criticism,” said an AITA official.ITF rules clearly state that a doubles team has to be nominated by the national association. Unless AITA approves Myneni and Bopanna as a team, they can not play.It will not be a surprise if AITA’s selection committee goes ahead with Bopanna, Paes, Sania Mirza and Prarthana Thombare as India’s Olympics team.Sania’s choiceLike Bopanna, Sania has also communicated to AITA that she prefers to play mixed doubles with Bopanna. AITA will not counter Sania on her choice and will let the two compete in the mixed doubles.Sania will play women’s doubles with young Thombare, the country’s number 2 doubles player ranked 209. She has been traning for the last one year at Sania Mirza Tennis Academy, under the guidance of Sania’s father and coach Imran.AITA had made efforts to convince Bopanna that he accepts Paes as his partner but the 36-year-old stuck to his guns and decided not to pick him as his partner.The AITA selection committee now has a tough task as it would want all the players to be happy going into the Olympics.center_img Published on SHARE sports sports tennislast_img read more

first_imgNew Delhi: Playing Davis Cup at the age of 30 is not a step forward for Jeevan Nedunchezhiyan but he still feels it will be a “special week” in his tennis journey when he faces Pakistan.He firmly believes that winning against a weaker opponent would not take anything away from his debut. The Chennai left-hander churned out results consistently in the last two-three years but was not considered for Davis Cup selection due to the presence of higher-ranked players.An opportunity arose when the top players refused to travel to Pakistan and he raised his hands up. With the matches shifted out of Islamabad, they again said they were ready to play, spoiling Jeevan’s chances.However, a shoulder injury ruled Rohan Bopanna out and Jeevan is now set to make his debut alongside the legendary Leander Paes.”We have very good doubles players in our country. We have two guys in top-50. I don’t look at it as holding back. Tennis is a journey. I am 30-year-old, I enjoy playing on Tour, regardless of whether I get to play Davis Cup or not. But it is a special feeling to play for tri-colour. And it’s not a step forward, it’s part of the journey,” Jeevan told PTI in an interview.”I am excited to be part of the squad. It’s any player’s dream to represent the country, it’s the highest honour for a player to represent the country.”The big-serving Saketh Myneni is also in the squad but indications are that it will be Jeevan, who will play alongside Paes in the doubles.The diminutive southpaw said spending time in the company of Paes is an opportunity to learn.”I am hoping to take new lessons. On tennis courts he is a very smart player. The way he looks at the game is very different to the players I have played with. Athletically, he is very gifted, he is still one of the best movers. Even at this age, he is still amazing mover.”I am not a big guy, so I move very athletically, I need to maximise those moves I can make at the net. I can relate to a lot of things, he talks about like how to move when at the net. So, definitely learning a lot from him,” said Jeevan.Asked how his game complements Paes’ since both are good at the net, Jeevan said their left-right combination would trouble the opponents.”We both have trust in each other’s ability to put away balls at the net. The key is serving with left-right combination, that’s a big advantage we have.”I have done well with my right hand partners in the past, I have done well on ad-court too. Bopanna and I won Chennai Open with me on the ad-court, so that’s a familiar territory for me.”Pakistan’s top players Aisam-ul-haq Qureshi and Aqeel Khan have pulled out of the tie, protesting the shifting of matches to Nur-Sultan. In their absence the country’s junior players will compete against India, making it a no-contest even before the start of the tie.However, Jeevan said, “it does not really matter”.”A match is a match, a win is a win. I don’t look at the opponent whether he is a great player or somebody not that good a player. At the end of the day, no body remembers, what was the score or who was the opponent. People just remember who won or who lost.”Also it’s not an easy decision for those guys to not to come, I can understand their position. They are both great guys but I am excited to be playing regardless of who is playing.”Jeevan achieved his career best rank of 64 this year but dropped out of top-100 as the season drew to a close. But he is not bothered, saying he is playing bigger tournaments now.”I feel like I am playing my best tennis right now.Maybe the results did not come as they come the last year but I would say last year I was playing on Challenger circuit which gave me the opportunity to play on Tour this year.”The goal is to play on ATP tour. As long as you are playing up, that’s good. That’s the process I am on for the last 3-4 years,” he said.Jeevan said he will play with compatriot N Sriram Balaji in the 2020 season.”He has a big serve and is a natural ad-court player while I play on deuce court.””I am also hoping that Rohan recovers quickly. It’s Olympic year, so we want all our players to be fit. I wish him speedy recovery. Get the best of News18 delivered to your inbox – subscribe to News18 Daybreak.

first_imgAuto industry leaders took up the issue of ban on big diesel cars and SUVs in Delhi-NCR with the PMO while seeking a solution on how to replace old polluting vehicles.Representatives of Society of Indian Automobile Industry (SIAM) and heads of automobile companies, including Maruti Suzuki India, Ford India and Toyota Kirloskar Motor met PMO officials, including Principal Secretary to PM, Nripendra Misra.ALSO READ: Toyota, Mercedes-Benz to re-consider investment plans in India”The primary agenda of the meeting was the ban on diesel cars and SUVs with engine capacity of 2,000cc and above in Delhi-NCR by the Supreme Court and to find a way forward,” an industry source said.When contacted, Maruti Suzuki India Chairman R C Bhargava, who was present at the meeting declined to comment. SIAM Secretary General Vishnu Mathur, also present in the meeting, was not available for comments.Another source said while the diesel ban was the top of the agenda, the meeting also discussed as to how government and the auto industry must work together to address pollution due to ageing vehicles.ALSO READ:Mercedes-Benz India puts investments on hold due to SC diesel ban”Fleet replacement and scrapping of old vehicles were also discussed,” the source added.In December last year, the Supreme Court had banned sale of diesel cars and sport utility vehicles with engines of 2,000 cc and above in the wake of rising pollution in the city. It is likely to take up the matter next month.     The National Green Tribunal had also imposed a similar ban in Kerala but has been stayed by the state high court.advertisementALSO READ:Confidence has taken a big knock since SC diesel ban, says Toyota IndiaThe developments led to some automakers reworking their plans and introducing models with petrol options or smaller diesel engines.Earlier this month Environment Minister Prakash Javadekar had said the ban on diesel cars and SUVs with engines above 2,000 cc in Delhi-NCR by courts “is not the right way”.Calling it “unfortunate”, he said the government is already taking measures to curb pollution, and the ban has resulted in vehicles with latest technologies not being allowed while old polluting vehicles continue plying on the roads.ALSO READ:Diesel ban to hit future investments, lead to job loss: Mercedes BenzEarlier, Bhargava had termed the ban as “totally arbitrary”. Stating that cars are universally targeted for causing pollution as they represent “the well-off section of society”, he had reasoned that cars contributed to only around 2 per cent of pollution in the capital.Toyota, which is one of the companies hit hard by the ban, had termed restrictions as the “worst advertisement of India”. Mercedes Benz India had stated that it has put on hold its investments in India in the wake of the diesel ban.last_img read more

first_imgNEW YORK — Brandon McCarthy. Chris Capuano. Shane Greene. And now, Esmil Rogers.The New York Yankees have gone on an improbable run to get right back in the thick of the playoff race and an unlikely bunch of pitchers have led the way.Rogers, perhaps the unlikeliest of all, worked five sharp innings Aug. 8 and Carlos Beltran hit a grand slam and drove in five runs as the Yankees beat the sloppy Cleveland Indians 10-6 for their sixth win in seven games.“They’ve pitched extremely well,” Manager Joe Girardi said. “I’m not sure any of us knew exactly what to expect, but since the All-Star break we’ve had a chance to win every game and that’s because of them.”The Yankees walked seven times in moving seven games above .500 (61-54) for the first time this season. They are 14-7 since the break.Derek Jeter tied Honus Wagner for sixth place on the career list with his 3,430th hit in a five-run first inning against Trevor Bauer (4-7).Beltran’s 11th career slam highlighted a five-run sixth. The Indians, who have the majors’ worst fielding percentage, prolonged both innings with errors in their fourth straight loss overall and seventh in a row in the Bronx.“I think we all understand the type of team we need to be to win, and not making teams earn every single thing they get does not put us in the best position to win,” Indians Manager Terry Francona said.Picked up off waivers on July 31 after the Toronto Blue Jays cut him for the second time this season, Rogers (2-0) became the 12th player to make a start for New York.Pitching in place of David Phelps (elbow inflammation), he allowed one run and four hits over five innings in his first start since Sept. 25 for Toronto and threw 88 pitches — 45 was his high this season coming in.“I didn’t have my confidence like I have right now,” Rogers said about the difference between the way he is pitching now compared to earlier in the season.Rogers’ outing followed four fine starts by a makeshift rotation against the Detroit Tigers’ heralded staff. Three of those came from pitchers who made their first start for the Yankees in July: McCarthy, Capuano and Greene.The Yankees took advantage of three walks by Bauer in the first inning. Beltran, Stephen Drew and Martin Prado had RBI singles and another run scored on second baseman Jason Kipnis’ throwing error.Bauer was charged with five runs and six hits in 3 1-3 innings.John Axford walked the bases loaded — one intentional — before Beltran connected.(HOWIE RUMBERG, AP Sports Writer)TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more
