‘No Odisha policeman found guilty of rights violation, corruption’

Posted on by

first_imgAt a time when the Odisha Police is getting ready to be rated by complainants and victims of crimes, none of its 976 police inspectors facing human rights violation and corruption allegations has been found guilty in the last five years.In response to an RTI application, the State police headquarters acknowledged that 976 such allegations had been received against inspectors and reserve inspectors between 2014 and 2019.Human rights activist Biswapriya Kanungo had submitted RTI applications seeking information on such allegations and action taken on them.“We have been sending all allegations to the district Senior Superintendent of Police as well as Deputy Commissioner for submission of inquiry and action taken reports. As many as 574 inquiry reports have been received at the HQ,” said the PHQ Public Information Officer.No response “No allegation or complaint against police inspectors has been substantiated or established. No administrative or penal action has been taken against any inspector,” informed the PIO.In case of the remaining 402 cases, the PIO did not say anything. Similarly, 102 allegations were received against Assistant Commissioner of Police and Deputy Superintendent of Police during the same period. But, the PHQ again kept mum.In case of allegations of corruption against serving IPS officers in Odisha, the Vigilance Department refused to divulge anything.“The State government specifies that nothing contained in the Act shall apply to General Administration (Vigilance), Department and its organisation,” said Vigilance Department PIO.“The piece of information is disturbing. It indicates as if all allegations against police officers were false. We believe that allegations were thrown to dustbins and no proper inquiry was held. The much-talked-about transparency and accountability has lost its meaning,” said Mr. Kanungo.last_img read more

Senators Stave Off Islanders, 2-1

Posted on by

first_imgUNIONDALE, N.Y. — The Ottawa Senators have been on the type of roll that just might propel them into the playoffs.Matt Puempel and Kyle Turris scored second-period goals, and backup Andrew Hammond made 34 saves as the Senators beat the New York Islanders 2-1 on March 13.Ottawa improved to 9-1-1 in its last 11 games to remain within striking distance of Boston for the second wild-card spot in the Eastern Conference. The Senators trail the Bruins by five points with both teams having 15 games remaining.“We need to keep stringing wins together to give ourselves a chance,” said Hammond, who improved to 9-0-1. “The biggest thing for us is we stuck to our system, and I think we frustrated them a little bit.”The Islanders lost their third straight at home, including Tuesday’s 2-1 defeat to the New York Rangers, and a 5-3 setback against Carolina on Feb. 28. They are 23-11 at Nassau Coliseum this season. New York will host Montreal on Saturday to complete a back-to-back.“It’s a couple of tight games, these last two,” Islanders captain John Tavares said. “We have to find a way to get more opportunities. We have to play through it. We’re not far off.”Tyler Kennedy cut the Islanders’ deficit to 2-1 with 8:01 to go. Jaroslav Halak stopped 26 shots.After a nondescript first period in which the Senators had a 9-6 shots advantage, Puempel scored his second goal of the season with a slap shot from the right circle at 6:32. Mika Zibanejad and Patrick Wiercioch assisted.Turris made it 2-0 with 1:07 left in the second when he deflected in Erik Karlsson’s shot for his 17th goal.The Senators also beat the Canadiens 5-2 in Montreal on Thursday night.“It was just a great road game,” Turris said. “They were pushing pucks. We were collapsing in front of Hammond and forechecking pretty good. For a back-to-back, we did everything you could ask for.”Kennedy tipped in a drive by Lubomir Visnovsky for his sixth goal of the season and second with the Islanders since he was acquired from San Jose on March 2.But Hammond then stopped Travis Hamonic and Anders Lee in close in the waning minutes. He has been stellar for the Senators in place of the injured Robin Lehner after playing most of the past two seasons with Binghamton of the AHL.“It’s all about playing a system and a way that gives us the best chance, and that’s what we did against a great team,” Senators coach Dave Cameron said. “You can’t win in this league without goaltending. Hammy was real good.”Hammond made 22 saves in the second period, including a mask stop on Islanders defenseman Johnny Boychuk, which led to a brief delay while repairs were made to his headgear.The Islanders couldn’t solve Hammond on three power plays in the second, even getting several derisive cheers from the home crowd.An undrafted free agent who signed with Ottawa in March 2013, Hammond has allowed two or fewer goals in each of his 10 starts for the Senators (32-24-11) this season.The Islanders (43-23-4) won both previous meetings with the Senators in December. They trail the Rangers by one point in the Metropolitan Division but the Rangers have four games in hand.“We have to stay the course and grind it out,” Islanders coach Jack Capuano said. “Our structure has to be there and we have to execute and play with pace. But if you can’t score, you can’t win.”Kyle Okposo played his second straight game for the Islanders after missing 22 games because of a detached retina in his left eye. He had three shots on goal in 21:20 of ice time.The Senators are 21-13-6 since Cameron took over for Paul McLean as coach on Dec. 8.(ALLAN KREDA)TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

Saudiled forces begin assault on Yemen port

Posted on by

first_imgTerritorial control in Yemen on 12 June. Photo: AFPA Saudi-led coalition backing Yemen’s exiled government began an assault Wednesday morning on Yemen’s port city of Hodeida, a crucial battle in the 3-year-old conflict that aid agency warned could push the Arab world’s poorest country into further chaos.Before dawn, convoys of vehicles appeared to be heading toward the rebel-held city on the Red Sea, according to videos posted on social media. The sound of heavy, sustained gunfire clearly could be heard in the background.Saudi-owned satellite news channels later announced the battle had begun, citing military sources. State media in both Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates did not immediately acknowledge the assault.Forces loyal to Yemen’s exiled government and irregular fighters led by Emirati troops had neared Hodeida in recent days. The port is some 150 kilometers (90 miles) southwest of Sanaa, Yemen’s capital held by Shiite rebels known as Houthis.Emirati Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Anwar Gargash earlier told French newspaper Le Figaro the deadline for a withdrawal from Hodeida by the Houthis expired early Wednesday morning.The United Nations and other aid groups already had pulled their international staff from Hodeida ahead of the rumored assault.Over 10,000 people have been killed in Yemen’s civil war. The Saudi-led coalition has been criticized for its airstrikes killing civilians. Meanwhile, the UN and Western nations say Iran has supplied the Houthis with weapons from assault rifles up to the ballistic missiles they have fired deep into Saudi Arabia, including at the capital, Riyadh.Before the war, over 70 per cent of Yemen’s food and fuel imports came through Hodeida, accounting for over 40 per cent of the nation’s customs income. The port remains crucial for incoming aid, food and medicine for a nation driven to the brink of famine by the conflict and a Saudi-led blockade.The UN says some 600,000 people live in and around Hodeida, and “as many as 250,000 people may lose everything- even their lives” in the assault.last_img read more
