Kamlesh Tiwari murder case: SC transfers trial from Lucknow to Prayagraj

Published

New Delhi, Sep 24: The Supreme Court on Friday ordered to transfer the trial in the murder case of Hindu Samaj party leader Kamlesh Tiwari from Lucknow to Prayagraj.

A plea was moved by Ashfaq Husen and nine other accused persons in the matter claimeing that communally surcharged atmosphere is prevailing in Lucknow, which is prejudicing the case of the petitioners.

The plea, filed through advocate Somesh Chandra Jha, said: “The petitioners would be risking their lives if the trial is conducted in Lucknow district, as they have already received threats to life through local lawyers.”

The plea contended that it is not safe for the petitioners, who are out on bail, to attend the court all by themselves.

“The petitioners have already been physically and mentally harassed in the presence of police officers and in the court of law,” the plea added.

The plea contended that since the petitioners are not able to represent themselves in a just and proper way before the trial court owing to the backlash faced by them, it would be in the interest of justice if the case is transferred from Lucknow to a neutral place.

Advocate Meenakshi Arora appeared for the petitioners. After hearing the arguments, a bench of justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul ordered the transfer of the trial from Lucknow to Prayagraj.

The plea also said that on January 18, 2020, the petitioners and their counsel were man-handled, while a false and frivolous FIR was also lodged against them.

The plea claimed that 7 out of 10 petitioners have gone unrepresented for many dates and the bail applications of two accused got dismissed for non-prosecution on July 21, 2020, as there was no appearance on their behalf to present their bail application.

Kamlesh Tiwari was murdered in Lucknow in October 2019. In December 2020, the Uttar Pradesh police had filed a chargesheet against 13 accused persons in the case.

Call me “Dada”, not “Sir”, Tripura CM Biplab Kumar Deb to employees

Agartala: In what appears to be a step to boost the morale of the government employees, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb on Sunday asked the government employees to call him “Dada” instead of “Sir”. “Call me Dada, not sir. It enhances the warmth of the relationship”, Deb told a gathering of government employees.

Deb exhorted the government employees of the state especially ASHA and Anganwadi workers of the state asking them not to dishearten as the state government was eager to improve their pay structure.

“I salute the ASHA and Anganwadi workers of my state. The level of dedication that my sisters have shown during the pandemic period deserved applause. I know, they want to hear good news from me and I am assuring you all that this government will not disappoint anyone”, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb told a gathering of government employees at Badharghat sports school field organized by Vivekananda Vicha Manch (VVM).

VVM has emerged as a big platform of government employees, of late, and Sunday’s public rally was its first big gathering to thank the Chief Minister for the series of steps his government took for the welfare of the employees.

“I know what challenges you people are facing. Nothing is hidden in front of me. I am assuring you all everything will be taken care of in the due course of time”, he added.  Lauding the efforts of government employees Deb said, without them no government office can function.

“Due to the efforts of government employees, people can access the benefits of the state sponsored welfare schemes. But, for a prolonged period the employees did not get their right to do something freely. They were trapped in the clutches of unions. In the previous regime, Left sponsored unions used to enjoy supreme power which had reduced the whole work culture of the state to tatters. In 2018, you people showed courage and voted BJP to power”, said Deb.

“Despite fund constraints, the state government is positively working on the issues of DA and other factors pertaining to the interest of the government employees. Our government has already addressed a number of issues related to financial benefits. The ad-hoc promotion, increment for Group D, Group C employees, regularization of SSA teachers, seventh pay scale, UGC scale for professors, special benefit for LTC are to name a few. All these indicate what we want to do and we shall do what we promise”, the Chief Minister said.

The Chief Minister also asked the officials not to call him “sir” suggesting them to refer to him as “Dada” as it makes the relationship stronger and cherished. The Chief Minister also distributed clothes among children of Badharghat sports school during the programme. State BJP President Manik Saha, Minister Ram Prasad Paul, Minister Sushanta Chowdhury, MLA Mimi Majumder, state BJP Vice President and president of Vivekananda Vichar Manch Rajib Bhattacharjee also spoke on the occasion.
