Robert-Vadra

Following violence between two groups in North-East Delhi over the Citizenship Amendment Act, Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra’s husband and businessman Robert Vadra took to Twitter to express his concern. He also urged the government to take swift action against the perpetrators.

“We must unite. Violence can’t be tolerated in any form, in any context, in any circumstance. Of late, some miscreants have been trying to create violence & we lost two policemen to that. I deeply condole their death. The government should swiftly take action against the perpetrators,” he wrote.

At least seven people including a Delhi Police Head Constable have died in the violence. Many incidents of arson, vandalism and looting were reported since Monday. The violence erupted after some miscreants allegedly used abusive language and attacked the people who were protesting against the CAA.

Vadra tweeted along with a text-picture written in Hindi that reads, “Tension has prevailed in the country for last some months due to the CAA which has triggered protests. It is very sad that how four people including a policeman died yesterday. The Centre and Delhi government should take right and swift action against this”.

The message is followed by his appeal to the people to maintain peace.

Before it, Congress interim President Sonia Gandhi, party General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra and Congress MP Rahul Gandhi also condemned the violence and appealed to the people to maintain peace.

“The national capital witnessed violence for whole day today. The violence will only affect the common man and the country. We all are responsible to stop it,” Priyanka Gandhi Vadra tweeted in Hindi on Monday.

She said: “Mahatma Gandhi’s nation is a country of peace. I appeal for peace to the Delhiites and I request to the Congress worker to put your efforts in maintaining peace”.

Kangana-Ranaut

 A plea has been moved in the Supreme Court seeking a direction to censor all future social media posts by Bollywood actress Kangna Ranaut.

The plea filed by advocate Sardar Charanjeet Singh Chanderpal sought direction to instruct all social media platforms to censor, modify or delete Ranaut’s posts before allowing its official release, if it results in law-and-order problems in India.

The plea said Kangna has made these utterances on a public platform of social media like Instagram. “This post on Instagram in short means and infers ‘Sikh farmers as Khalistani Terrorists, upholds the genocide of 1984’, means that Sikhs should be treated as a lower race like unwanted mosquitoes and they need a Guru like Mrs. Indira Gandhi when the Eternal Guru of the Sikhs is Guru Granth Sahibjee,” said the plea.

The plea contended that such statements develop a sense of racial discrimination, hate based on different faiths and could lead to a lot of heated arguments on social media and have to potency of even riots, provocation and have all ingredients of the offences that these statements commit.

“The remarks are not only outrageous and blasphemous but also intend to cause riots, hurt religious sentiments, they are defamatory as well as portray Sikhs in a totally anti National manner. It also justifies the killing of innocent Sikhs. The remarks are totally against the unity of our country and the actress deserves a serious punishment at Law. They cannot be brushed aside or excused,” added the plea, filed through advocate Anil Kumar.

The plea seeks direction to the home ministry, IT ministry, TRAI and state police authorities of different states to take preventive action on Kangna’s social media posts.

The plea also sought a direction to transfer all the FIRs on the derogatory statements allegedly made by Kangna on Sikhs to the Khar police station in Mumbai.

Three persons were killed and several others injured in a huge blast at a residential building in South 24 Parganas district’s Mohanpur village on Wednesday morning, police said.

According to the police, the owner of the house had stacked huge amounts of illegal explosives possibly for making firecrackers which resulted in the blast. The owner of the house — Ashim Mondal and two of his employees — were killed in the blast.

According to the local people, Mondal had been running an illegal firecracker factory in the locality for the last ten years. “This is a residential area and we had the fear that this kind of explosion could take place. We requested him several times and also informed the police, but nothing happened,” a local resident said.

According to the local people, the magnitude of the blast was so high that the window panes of some of the neighbouring houses broke and the bodies were thrown nearly 200 metres away from the blast site. According to the police, the blast took place on the roof and the concrete roof collapsed.

“The bodies have been sent for post-mortem and we have informed the forensic team. Once they give their report we will be able to understand the nature of the explosives and the exact location of the blast,” a senior police officer said.
