Uttar Pradesh police establish links between all five cases of Love Jihad in Kanpur’s Juhi colony, forms SIT to probe the allegations
https://www.opindia.com/2020/09/link-fi ... olice-sit/
In a major breakthrough, the special investigating team (SIT) which has been working relentlessly under the directions of Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath, to probe the allegations of ‘Love Jihad’ and forced conversion in the state, has managed to establish links between all the five cases which were reported from Kanpur’s Juhi colony last month. According to a Jagran report, the Uttar Pradesh police, after scrutinising the call record details (CDR) of the five Muslim youths accused of implicating Shalini Yadav and four other Hindu girls in Juhi colony, ascertained that they were not only in touch with each other but also working in unison.

Mean while another 'minor blow to secularism' at KL.
Kerala man Subahani sentenced to life in prison for waging war against Iraq with ISIS.
*The sentence in the case was passed by Judge P Krishnakumar. ASP Shoukathali was the investigating officer in the case.
*This is the first case filed by the NIA for waging a war against India and nations friendly to it.

^ Bit confusing

Is the life term for waging war against Iraq or for attempting to wage war against India?

Also does the sentence for life mean the jihadi scum will be in for the rest of his life or can the Kerala state government reduce it to 14 years

Public also needs to demand stricter actions against police and not just the death penalty for the murderers. Hammer needs to come down on SHO and move up the chain. It's also worth noting that BIF has activated it's SM campaigns as there's no islamic angle here.

With how BIF selectively utilizes rape and murder incidents, Home ministry does need to look into motives. The incident did happen and that's undeniable. However, alternative motives need to be investigated here with BIF all ready to utilize the event.

It is heinous crime and I hope Yogiji takes the authorities to task & make sure the prosecution has an airtight case against the culprits. If the crime wasn't gruesome already it is now being reported that the victim's body was not handed over to the family but was burnt by the Police. The wailing image of the poor mother of the victim will unfortunately be milked by the opposition and the media for political gains. I hope the 4 accused if proven guilty never get to see the light of the day irrespective of their age.

It is for waging war against another 'India friendly' country, Iraq. Subhani has NOT committed any terrorism related crime in India. Also there is another case (again registered by NIA) of this chap participating in a criminal conspiracy at Kanakamala, Kannur Dt, North Kerala.

Also does the sentence for life mean the jihadi scum will be in for the rest of his life or can the Kerala state government reduce it to 14 years

That can only be ascertained after reading the court verdict. In some cases the courts add the clause that life imprisonment cannot be remitted and it means life in prison till death. But all said and done, even the 14 years will actually ensure that this chap's prime age is spent inside a prison. And we must also note that he still has provisions for appeal. As the verdict is from the NIA court which is like a District & Sessions court.

In that case, I hope that the case against him is watertight with evidence (which would not be from India) admissible in Indian courts (right upto the SC). I don't have any idea about how good/bad the Iraqi criminal system is, especially given it's sordid history (under dictators) and now considering the current mess it is in.

From his current look of around 40-45, he might well be prime mullah age if he gets out in 14 years. Plenty of time to be crowned as a martyr by supportive political parties/clergy and become an inspirational leader of the youth at that time..

Its not that simple. He has to either undergo the permission here or be extradited to Iraq. I think he chose the former. This is similar to Vijay Mallya case.

Don't know where this fits in but I think given the former title of the deceased person perhaps this thread is appropriate.

Former director Of CBI Ashwani kumar dies of suicide in Shimla . He was reportedly very close to 10 Janpath, so who knows how many secrets he took with him.

Surat: Owner of a famed Gujarati thali restaurant in the city was arrested for his alleged involvement in the flourishing mephadrone trafficking racket busted by the city police on September 22.
On Thursday, the crime branch sleuths arrested 41-year-old Adil Salim Nurani, who owns the popular ‘Kansar’ restaurant.
“Nurani was himself addicted to drugs and we suspect he had also started trafficking in partnership with the prime accused Salman alias Aman Mohammed Hanif Zaveri. But his exact role will be clear only after detailed questioning,” a police official said.

Thummar had allegedly trained Aslaliya in making mephedrone by providing sources material from various chemical units and taught him how to sell the finished product.
Salman also allegedly sexually exploited young girls by befriending them with different names and luring them into mephedrone addiction.

Staffer at HAL’s Nashik unit held for spying for ISI
Oct 10, 2020, 04.17 AM IST

Mumbai/Nashik: The Maharashtra anti-terrorism squad (ATS) on Thursday arrested an assistant supervisor at defence PSU Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd (HAL)’s facility near Nashik for spying. The accused, Dipak Shirsath, was allegedly providing classified information about Indian fighter aircraft to a handler in Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI).
Shirsath, a lower-rung employee whose job entailed inspection of materials, is suspected to have been led into a honeytrap by the handler. Information handed over by him was linked to the manufacturing unit and other prohibited areas of the facility located at Ozar, 20 kms from Nashik. HAL Nashik makes SU-30 MKI aircraft. It is also engaged in overhauling both MiG 21 and SU-30.
The arrest comes a week after police at Deolali Camp, near Nashik, arrested a youth, Sanjeev Kumar, 21, for taking photos in the prohibited Army area and sending them to a WhatsApp group in Pakistan. Kumar, who was arrested a week ago, worked in Nashik. He was booked under the Official Secrets Act.

Ahead of FATF scrutiny, 19 forex dealers lose licence
TNN | Oct 13, 2020, 03.30 AM IST

NEW DELHI: In a move that seeks to ensure India’s compliance with Financial Action Task Force norms on money laundering, Reserve Bank of India cancelled licences of 19 big foreign exchange dealers who allegedly issued huge foreign currencies in cash to some high net-worth individuals, allegedly helping them stash black money in tax havens. In one case, a Mumbai-based forex dealer was found to have issued Rs 2,000 crore worth of forex based on forged documents.

The government has now engaged multiple agencies, including Enforcement Directorate (ED) and Directorate of Revenue Intelligence (DRI), to carry out further investigation of the ‘clients’ of these 19 forex dealers and trail the source of cash flows.
.
.
The ban on forex dealers comes ahead of India’s scrutiny of anti-money laundering infrastructure later this month by the Financial Action task Force (FATF), the Paris-based inter-governmental body that sets standards and monitors each country’s effectiveness in combating money laundering and terror financing.

While ED investigated the Mumbai forex dealer involving illegal forex transactions worth Rs 2,000 crore, the DRI busted a similar syndicate where it detected forex smuggling of more than Rs 180 crore out of the country. These foreign currencies were provided by money changers in cash based on bogus documents, according to an assessment report prepared by the Central Economic Intelligence Bureau (CEIB).

This is serious issue for us ... if we don't have laws, this pattern will be used by FB/Twitter in India

Facebook, Twitter limit reach of New York Post article about Hunter Biden
Facebook's move to reduce the article's distribution until it's fact-checked is facing criticism from some Republicans and the Trump campaign.

Facebook and Twitter are limiting the reach of a New York Post article that alleges leaked emails show Joe Biden's son introduced the Democratic presidential nominee to a Ukrainian energy executive, raising questions about how social networks fact-check political content.

Andy Stone, a Facebook spokesman, said in a tweet the Wednesday article is eligible for fact-checking by the social network's third-party partners though he didn't indicate what prompted the review. The social network is "reducing its distribution" in the meantime.



Twitter said that it's blocking any links or images of the New York Post story about Biden's son, Hunter Biden. The company cited its policies against the distribution of hacked materials. Social media sites are worried about disinformation campaigns in which hackers release documents as part of an attempt to meddle in the Nov. 3 election

NIA suspects Dawood link in the Kerala gold smuggling scam, accused had travelled to D-gang locations in Tanzania: Reports

The NIA said that two accused Ramees KT and Sharafudheen had travelled to Tanzania and visited shops in the African country where guns are sold. In Tanzania, Ramees attempted to procure a licence for the diamond business. According to NIA, Ramees later smuggled gold to the UAE and from the UAE he bought gold back to Kerala.

“Tanzania and Dubai are the main places where the Dawood gang is active. In fact, D-company’s affairs in Tanzania are handled by an Indian named Firoz Oasis. We suspect Ramees’s links with D-company. Ramees was caught by the Customs in November 2019 for smuggling 13.22 mm bore rifles. This happened when the gold smuggling was taking place,” NIA counsel Arjun Ambalapatta submitted before the court.

FDI cap in digital news meant to check Chinese, other foreign influence, says I&B official
By Vasudha Venugopal & Megha Mandavia, ET Bureau Last Updated: Oct 19, 2020, 08:15 AM IST

New Delhi | Bengaluru: The government’s clarification on Friday that the rule allowing 26% foreign direct investment (FDI) in digital news will apply to news aggregators, entities uploading streaming news on websites apps and other platforms as well as news agencies, is intended to check “foreign influence and interference in India’s domestic affairs, check Chinese and other overseas funding in news sites”, according to top I&B ministry officials. Importantly, the new rules will “create a level-playing field for all media”, as per these officials.

The presence of Chinese and foreign-owned digital media outlets that did not comply with the FDI cap, notably entities such as Dailyhunt, UC News, Opera News, and NewsDog were of concern, an official said. According to senior officials, the Indian Newspaper Society (INS) was the among the first to raise concerns over aggregators.

Foreign direct investment proposals with even the smallest Chinese holding will need government nod
By Sidhartha, TNN Last Updated: Oct 19, 2020, 09:51 AM IST

NEW DELHI: Foreign direct investment (FDI) proposals with even minuscule Chinese holding will need government approval, with the Centre abandoning its earlier plan to set a floor for “significant beneficial ownership”.

In April, when the Cabinet approved the plan for screening of FDI proposals from countries bordering India, the government had discussed the option to set the threshold at either 10%, the provision in the Companies Act, or 25%, the prescription in the Prevention of Money Laundering Act.

But six months later, after multiple rounds of discussions, the view seems to have changed. “The (Cabinet) decision did not mention a minimum or maximum limit. So, even it is a small fraction, it will be covered,” a government official told TOI.
