first_imgIt is a love story that can inspire the screenwriters of new-age Bollywood. Payal, a constable with the U.P. police, met dreaded gangster Rahul Tharasana during a court hearing in Greater Noida in May 2014. The two fell in love at the Surajpur court where Tharasana was brought in connection with the murder case of a trader named Manmohan Goyal as the main accused. Payal was allegedly posted there.Romance over datesTheir romance blossomed over several dates in the court, leading to marriage. The world got to know when Tharasana shared photos of the wedding ceremony, which reportedly took place in March at an undisclosed location, with some of his friends via social media.It created an embarrassing situation on Friday for the U.P. police. Tharasana, said to be part of the Anil Dujana gang, is an accused in over a dozen cases of loot and murder.As the news spread during the day, Senior Superintendent of Police (Gautam Buddh Nagar) Vaibhav Krishna tweeted that the claim that the girl is a police constable is unverified. SP (Rural) Kumar Ranvijay Singh told The Hindu that it was yet to be confirmed that the girl worked with the U.P. police.“We have checked. Her name is not there in our office records. What I can confirm is that Rahul is a history-sheeter and is out on bail.”‘Influenced people’On local reports that Payal was using her husband’s notoriety in his absence to influence people in their village in Greater Noida, where the family holds political clout, Mr. Singh said that he was getting it investigated. “We haven’t received any formal complaint so far,” he said.last_img read more

first_imgAn independent MLA was on Sunday booked by the Punjab police for allegedly berating Gurdaspur Deputy Commissioner publicly at the civil hospital here on the issue of identity of a victim’s body, with the video of the incident having gone viral. In the video, legislator Simranjit Singh Bains is seen shouting at Deputy Commissioner Vipul Ujwal even as the officer tries to clear some confusion over the identity of a blast victim’s body. A day after the blast in a firecracker unit here that killed 23 people, Lok Insaaf Party chief and MLA Bains had allegedly berated Ujwal publicly at the civil hospital here. Police have booked Ludhiana MLA and his unidentified 20-odd associates on charges of voluntarily obstructing and assaulting or using criminal force against a public servant from discharging his duty, committing trespass and making criminal intimidation and other relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code. Senior Superintendent of Police Opinderjit Singh said the FIR has been registered on the complaint of Batala Sub-divisional Magistrate Balraj Singh who was also present at the time of incident. Yells at the officer“Eh tere baap da office nahi hai. Eh public da office hai. Te tu public nu hi keh rehan ki bahar jao. (It’s not your father’s office, it’s a public office and you are asking the public to get out),” Mr. Bains is heard yelling at Mr. Ujwal, even as the officer is seen trying to calm the infuriated MLA in the video. “Mera naal gal kar la pehla” (Talk to me first),” the legislator is seen telling the officer earlier in the 45-second video in presence of SSP Mr. Singh, Civil Surgeon Kishan Chand and Deputy SP Balkrishna Singla.Refuses to see reasons With the furious MLA refusing to see reasons, a humiliated Deputy Commissioner is heard merely quipping “I’m not going to talk to you” and seen leaving the place. Reacting to the registration of case against him and his companions, Mr. Bains accused Chief Minister Amarinder Singh of being behind the legal action against him.last_img read more

first_imgThe Nokia 9 PureView is just around the corner and we now have what looks to be the official promo video of the upcoming flagship.The video leaks out just hours after tipster Evan Blass tweeted and image of the device, which now appears to have been taken from the promo video. The video confirms that the Nokia 9 PureView will come with five rear cameras, Snapdragon 845 chipset, wireless charging and an in-display fingerprint sensor, among other things.The Nokia 9 PureView promo video was leaked by MySmartPrice. The video (shown below) shows off the phone in all its glory while at the same time reveals key details about the flagship. Firstly, we know that the penta-camera system will include Zeiss optics. While the promo does not give us exact details on the sensors, it does highlight that the phone will offer a lot of detail (kind of obvious), 5 simultaneous shots and up to 10x more light, suggesting good low-light photography. The cameras will also offer “stunning crisp HDR photography.” The video also highlights the ability to re-focus post capture within Google Photos.As for the display, the Nokia 9 PureView will sport a 5.99-inch 2K display. It will get HMD’s PureDisplay screen technology that has been seen on the Nokia 7.1 and Nokia 8.1. The display will offer high contrast and HDR10 support as well as the ability to upscale SDR content to HDR content. The promo video also seems to confirm past rumours that the Nokia 9 PureView will come with an in-screen fingerprint sensor. Furthermore, this will also be the first Nokia smartphone to support Qi wireless charging.advertisementThe video also answers our doubts on the chipset. It seems the Nokia 9 PureView will run this year’s Snapdragon 845 chipset and not Qualcomm’s next-gen Snapdragon 855 processor. This will be coupled with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. The phone will also ship with Android 9 Pie and will be part of the Android One program. If the promo video is true, then the Nokia 9 PureView pretty much keeps in line with everything we have heard so far. The Nokia flagship is slated to release in the last week of January, 2019.ALSO READ | Nokia 9 PureView rumour roundup: 5 cameras, January launch and everything we know so farALSO READ | Nokia 9 PureView with five rear cameras launch timeline revealedALSO READ | Nokia 9 PureView with five rear cameras shown off in live hands-on imagelast_img read more

first_img Prime Minister the Most Hon. Portia Simpson Miller says Jamaica is currently “undertaking efforts towards ratification of the Arms Trade Treaty”.The landmark Treaty which regulates the international trade in conventional arms, from small arms to battle tanks, combat aircraft and warships, was adopted by the General Assembly of the United Nations on April 2, 2013. According to the UN, the treaty will foster peace and security by putting a stop to destabilizing arms flows to conflict regions; prevent human rights abusers and violators of the law of war from being supplied with arms; and will help keep warlords, pirates, and gangs from acquiring these deadly tools.In her address to the 68th Session of the United Nations General Assembly in New York, earlier Saturday, September 28, Mrs. Simpson Miller welcomed the treaty while hitting out against transnational organized crime.“Transnational organised criminal enterprises wreak havoc on economies and challenge the capacities of states to deal with these threats. No country is immune to the direct or indirect effects of the scourge of transnational crime,” she said.The Prime Minister contended that increased collaboration is necessary in confronting such threats to human development.“To this end, we welcome the recent opening for signature of the landmark Arms Trade Treaty in June of this year which represents one of the many steps that the international community must take towards defeating terrorism, crime and violence,” she said.Mrs. Simpson Miller further pointed out that bilateral and regional cooperation through information sharing, capacity building and assistance are integral in dealing with crime and violence and security issues.The Prime Minister expressed condolences to the families of those killed in the recent Kenya mall attack; and concern for the suffering of the people of Syria. She joined the international community in condemning the use of chemical weapons.“We welcome the recent positive steps taken by the United Nations Security Council,” Mrs. Simpson Miller said, and emphatically stated Jamaica’s firm commitment to “a just, lasting and peaceful solution to the situation in the Middle East.”In the meantime, the Prime Minister also reiterated a call for an end to the embargo against Cuba and “extra-territorial measures which target third world countries.”She noted that the trade and economic embargo against Cuba has caused untold hardships to its people and has no place in the 21st century. Story Highlights Mrs. Simpson Miller welcomed the treaty while hitting out against transnational organized crime.
