the facts on hand including a police report had also failed to establish the occurrence of any such heinous mass rape in Murthal The police report which was in Hindi was uploaded along with the article and the English transcript was also made available The Court had taken suo moto cognisance of the alleged crime after The Tribune report of 24 February which saidthat at least ten women passengers on the national highway near Murthal Sonepat were stopped in the early hours of Monday 22 February dragged into the nearby fields and gangraped while further accusing the police of having advised the rape victims and their families not to register any complaints The Court had asked the Haryana government to reply following which a detailed police probe into the incident was ordered Following The Tribune report the news spread like wildfire stoked by the media and RTI and women activists However all that could be established through eye witness accounts is incidents of violence loot and arson but not a single case of sexual assault far less rape However given the seriousness of the allegations and the horror that the news has imprinted in the minds of people the police are continuing to urge victims to step forward In the police report of 26 February all three key sources in The Tribune story while admitting that some journalists from Delhi had visited them in and around Amrik Sukhdev Dhaba and made enquiries denied both the occurrence of any such incident or having confirmed the occurrence of either sexual assault or gangrape to the journalists Further CCTV footage obtained from Amrik Sukhdev Dhaba did not show any women’s clothes at the time the incident allegedly took place After drawing a blank the police then turned to one of the authors of the report Parveen Arora who additionally denied having spoken to a single victim or victim’s family maintaining that his story was based on the statements of the three persons named in the story Though after all the hype eventually a resident of Narela Delhi did lodge a complaint with the Haryana police in Sonepat on 27 February alleging gangrape on National Highway-1 near Murthal she herself claimed the rape was by her brothers-in-law and their five accomplices not external goons/rioters Further the incident does not pertain to the morning of 22 February but the night of 22-23 February According to reports the complainant has filed multiple rape allegations in the past and also has an ongoing property dispute with her in-laws An FIR has been filed and the matter is being investigated before any arrests are made A photograph of the affidavit Firstpost/Shishir Tripathi Unanswered questions With everyone failing to produce even a single rape victim after eight days how did The Tribune report establish that least 10 women were subjected to gangrape by at least 30 goons What is the source of these figures If such heinous gangrapes by violent armed goons did indeed take place but were covered up as alleged wouldn’t these victims need medical attention If so hospitals are legally bound to report any case of suspected criminal injuries to the police No such report has come in from Delhi or the NCR If the incident is indeed fabricated what could be the motivation in fabricating it Could it be to deflect attention from the Congress hand in the burning of Haryana as revealed in these three Firstpost exposés of 22 23 and 24 February If the story is not fabricated is it really possible for the Haryana police to (as alleged) suppress the voices of as many as 10 alleged rape victims who supposedly live in Delhi as well as the voices of hundreds of villagers and other locals In summary though the suspicion of a fabricated report is extremely distressing the likelihood of even one woman being raped in the course of the relentless 8-day Jat quota stir in Haryana is even more disturbing One can only hope no such incident took place By: Express News Service | Mumbai | Published: February 24 2017 2:59 am Vikram Yadav in police custody (Source: Express photo) Top News A FREESTYLE wrestler who has represented Mumbai in the past was arrested by the Chembur police for allegedly buying television sets using loans obtained on forged documents and then selling them The accused has “stolen” at least 10 television sets worth Rs 4 lakhs from different showrooms in the city according to the Chembur police Vikram Yadav (30) a Kurla resident told the police that he would only steal Sony LED television sets as they usually fetched a higher resale value In January a woman approached the Chembur police with a complaint that a bank had been harassing her to repay the loan she had taken from them She told the police that she had not taken any loan from the bank When the police approached the bank they found that someone else had taken a loan for purchasing a television set in the name of the complainant using forged documents The bank told the police that there were close to ten such cases where loans taken to purchase a high end television set had not been repaid In January a woman approached the Chembur police with a complaint that a bank had been harassing her to repay the loan she had taken from them She told the police that she had not taken any loan from the bank When the police approached the bank they found that someone else had taken a loan for purchasing a television set in the name of the complainant using forged documents The bank told the police that there were close to ten such cases where loans taken to purchase a high end television set had not been repaid Suspecting the same gang to be behind these cases senior inspector of Chembur police Sandeep Dal formed a team of officers led by assistant police inspector Sachin Kadam to investigate the case During the investigation Kadam found that someone had used fake documents and approached the bank for a loan to purchase a television set A bank employee — suspected to be part of the con racket — would sanction the loan “Normally to sanction a loan the person has to be present Here the bank employee sanctioned the loan without anyone being present Hence we suspect he could be linked to the case” an officer said After getting the loan sanctioned in the name of someone else Yadav would approach high end showrooms and purchase TV sets costing upwards of Rs 70000 He would then resell the television set to others saying that he needed money and was hence selling a newly purchased television set After the loan amount was not paid the bank would call up people in whose name the loan was taken like the complainant in the case These people would obviously deny having taken a loan leading to a dispute with the bank none of them realising that they have been conned “Based on information and other leads we finally tracked down Yadav from his Kurla residence On interrogation he confessed to have been involved in all such cases” Kadam said We are on the lookout for another accused who has a similar case against him in the past Yadav has no prior record and has in fact earlier represented Mumbai in a freestyle wrestling competition For all the latest

The Parliamentary Standing Committee on Rural Developments 31st report on land acquisition released this May does not want the state-led dominant domain principle extended to public-private partnerships and private sector projects It displays faith in eminent domainland use and district planningwhere the market is supposed to play a role thats what the land record business was all about Howeverthere are two problems with this Involving the market is finebut there could be the old person who will not let her land go when everybody else has agreed and that may stall a school or a road So the state may need to play a role after allin a classic public policy expenditure sense Secondwhen land prices go up as development takes placewhat market will remain It was suggested that local groups be consulted orbetter stillform cooperatives or producer companies of small landholders who could be part of the negotiation That waythere would be an opportunity for landholders to share in future benefits The standing committee is silent on the 80 per cent affected clause in the billwhich says that if a company gets 80 per cent of its land needs from the bazaarthe state may intervene to help it acquire the balance But that is hardly an argument for the draconian powers for the state that some ministers have been quoted as demanding That state did not aid growththe poor or the adivasis The market is reliableand those who would misuse it can be punished by law In the special cases of eminent domain as defined abovethe state must have some power Giving the state all the power it wants is inconsistent with the main thrust of the reporthoweverand there is an implied rebuff to the concept of equity-sharing between sellers and buyers One senior bureaucrat attempted to implement this for land purchased for industrial estates The farmers were to get a first pricebut their producer company could get contract work later andperhapsequity in future price increases of the estates assets He was transferred out The standing committeethoughwould make him irrelevant The company affairs ministry has essentially killed the producer company legislation It has argued that the second amendment to the Companies Bill 2002 will only be an addendum until the government changes its mind The consultations proposed for local bodies and farmers groups whitewash the issues A googly can be ruled out If everybody can make money from scarcitythen the farmer getting his first chance should not be grudged his share Moralising on that is hypocritical It is remarkablemoreoverthat the question of land acquisition keeps coming back Each time it doesno lessons seem to have been learnt from experience Over the last 20 yearsat least four issues I thought resolved have cropped up again Firsttenancy has increased in a big way but in many areasthe middle farmer was leasing land through reverse tenancy This was mostly unrecordedsince tenancy is officially frowned upon and the state keeps up the mirage that it provides land to the tiller whothereforecannot be a tenant Two corollaries were known Some states issued pattas and some set up ICT-based systems for instantaneous service In tribal areasland rights were primarily historical and unrecordedwhich meant that the poor adivasi could be exploited (Paradoxicallythe term adivasi means original settler) BN Yugandhar and BK Sinhaamong othershave left supporting evidence Secondin the 1990swe saw real pressure on agricultural land Earlier2 per cent or less of the land would be appropriated for non-agricultural use in a decade Nowsome states reach that figure in a year The urban land ceiling act was one of the worst pieces of legislation we have hadand the poor got little from italthough babus and land racketeers made fortunes in implementing this socialist policy With the reform of the 1990swe actually gave up the concept of land use planning Land use boards and high level committees never met As Kirit Parikh wrote in his excellent history of plan modellingthe government and the planners do not believe in perspective planning anymore The last three documents from Yojana Ayog stayed scrupulously away from a perspective chapter Now both the Planning Commission and the Union budgetwhile suggesting plan schemesalso want the concept of plan schemes and the resources allocated to them to be examined That doesnt provide the ideal background for the state to play a dominant role in the land market Thirdearlier concepts of unearned incomes or renter surpluses have been given up In the global bazaarthe border price is the mantra Fourthpolicymakers are ignoring the population movements taking place The farmer was going to the bazaar in small and big townsand there were calls for action to improve small townsnot least by calling them towns when the Census deemed them as such But the governmentin its wisdomignored such callsdespite 40 million people moving to these Census towns So much for land use and dominant domain The writera former Union ministeris chairmanInstitute of Rural ManagementAnand For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsSoon after waging a war among themselves the factions within the Aam Aadmi Party have hit the reconciliation button following Arvind Kejriwal’s return from Bangalore He has already held two separate meetings with the leaders of the two factions besides directing both not to go public with intra-party matters While some in the party question why he let the matter fester some believe it has worked well for him as a tactical move His authority over the party is fully established now He can play peacemaker with ease It’s the Prashant Bhushan-Yogendra Yadav camp which began the reconciliation bid when on Monday Bhushan sent a text message to Kejriwal stating that he wanted to meet him to discuss the latest developments In the evening Kumar Vishwas Sanjay Singh Ashutosh and Ashish Khetan leaders of the other faction met Yogendra Yadav This was the first such meeting after Bhushan and Yadav’s ouster from the party’s powerful political affairs committee According to party sources on Tuesday afternoon leaders of both groups met again at Khetan’s residence Is the peace offer from the Bhushan-Yadav camp an indication that they are on a weaker ground A senior party member said it is a fact that they need Kejriwal more than Kejriwal needs them They may be credible faces of the party but the latter is the vote-puller Without him they would lose whatever political weight they carry now Yogendra Yadav and Arvind Kejriwal PTI “Good sense must have prevailed on them and they might have realized that damaging Arvind Kejriwal’s image which is the USP of AAP won’t do any better to the party What Narendra Modi is for the BJP and Rahul Gandhi for the Congress so is Kejriwal for the AAP Anyone who thought that Kejriwal would lose was clearly unaware of the realities Not only has he emerged as the tallest leader in the party his leadership and cadre support base have also ensured that none would mistrust him If Yogendra Yadav talks of expansion outside Delhi any damage to Kejriwal’s image would invariably spoil that plan as well” Sudesh Verma former founding member of AAP and currently president Debating India Foundation a Delhi-based think tank told Firstpost “To call the crisis in the AAP a tussle for internal democracy is far from the truth It is the ganging up of those who feel that time has come to cash in on their contribution and make the best use of the brand They are the same set of people who were beneficiaries of the largesse by Kejriwal — they were not elected but handpicked and inducted by the national convener making it a fait accompli for the National Council to ratify the composition of the national executive” added Verma author of Narendra Modi: The Game Changer The reconciliation bid is spurred by the volunteers of the party too They are an important cog in the party’s working and the general mood among them is that the party should stay together It reflects in the latest tweets of the leaders Yadav has termed his meeting with members of the other group as “a good beginning of a dialogue and results are awaited” On the other hand AAP spokesperson Ashish Khetan has apologetically tweeted “I shd not have commented about Bhushans in public We’ve fought for many public causes together & will hopefully continue to work as a team (sic)” Political sociologist Prof Manjit Singh of Punjab University added “There’s a lot of pressure from all around – from AAP volunteers NRI members the media intelligentsia to common man It’s very difficult to fall apart and both sides now seem to be thinking on saving the ship The collective will of the people should be honoured and both Kejriwal and Bhushan-Yadav duo should arrive at a mutual understanding for the long-term benefit of the party as AAP ignited hopes amongst millions” The general will seems to be prevailing as the three – Kejriwal Yadav and Bhushan – made a joint appearance in Karkardooma court on Tuesday afternoon in a defamation case where they refrained from making any public comment on each other said the police had been unfairly criticized.
