Spelling more trouble for self-styled godman Dati Maharaj, a witness in the rape case against him has approached the police, alleging being roughed up and threatened by his henchmen to withdraw statement.

He reported that unidentified men roughed him up and threatened him. An FIR was lodged at the Badshahpur police station.
According to the complaint, Jain was returning with his wife and daughter from his in-laws’ house in Sohna around midnight.
When they reached the golf course road extension, a car without registration plate bearing tinted glasses intercepted them, he said.

Govt not serious on SYL : Abhay; Should the water of SYL be given to Haryana after the order order of SC?
Leader of Opposition Abhay Singh Chautala claimed that the BJP government was not serious on the Sutlej-Yamuna Link (SYL) canal issue though the Supreme Court had passed a verdict in this regard nearly 20 months ago.
Addressing workers of the INLD and BSP at a ‘jail bharo’ protest here, he said BJP president Amit Shah’s statement that loans of industrialists, and not of farmers, would be waived indicated that the BJP government was anti-farmer.
He alleged that farmers were being looted and insurance companies benefited in the garb of Prime Minister’s Crop Insurance Scheme.
He said the INLD-BSP combine, if voted to power in the state, would waive loans of farmers and small shopkeepers and cut power tariff to half.
Abhay maintained that the ‘jail bharo’ agitation had been launched to press for completion of the SYL canal, completion of the abandoned Dadupur-Nalvi canal and getting Mewat’s legitimate share of water from the Agra canal.
State BSP president Prakash Bharti claimed that the “achhe din” promised by the BJP had not arrived, but bad days of the BJP had already begun. Members of the INLD and BSP courted arrest and were released.

The district police have come up with another plan to curb crime and ensure prompt action on the information pertaining to any crime.
It has released the WhatsApp number 8930500677 to receive inputs, videos and photos about any crime for taking immediate action. Significantly, the police will also honour the sender with appropriate cash prize for assisting it in curbing various crimes.
“The move aims at promoting community policing and ensuring valuable contribution of the public in preventing crime. Quick action will be taken on those videos/photos and other information received on the WhatsApp number. It will not only help the police in maintaining law and order but also prove supportive in curbing the occurrence of crime,” said Pankaj Nain, Superintendent of Police (SP), Jhajjar.
He maintained that videos and photos pertaining to any crime work like an evidence for the police during investigation of any case.
Most of the times, these videos and photos provide decisive clues, which later turn out to be instrumental in conducting the probe in the right direction.
A provision has, therefore, been made to award cash prize to the sender for providing crucial inputs about any crime, he added.
“Besides, we have decided to conduct a survey across the district in order to identify those elderly people who live alone. The main aim of the planning is to provide them security and to connect the police with them for help purpose. After the survey, the PCR and riders will remain in touch with such elderly people to ensure their security,” said Nain.
The SP claimed that several steps had also been taken to ensure the security and safety of women and girls in the district.
Tanwar to launch yatra from Hooda’s stronghold in July; Is Ashok Tanwar looking to snatch the support of Bhupinder Hooda?
The turf war between Haryana Pradesh Congress Committee(HPCC) chief Ashok Tanwar and former Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda is set to intensify with former planning the next phase of his bicycle yatra from Hooda’s assembly segment Garhi Sampla-Kiloi next month.
In fact, Tanwar chose to announce the next phase of his “Haryana Bachao-Parivartan Lao” bicycle yatra from Hooda’s stronghold Garhi Sampla-Kiloi to Kalanaur from July 19 to 22 at a show of strength here on Thursday where party representatives, mostly belonging to anti-Hooda camp, from across Haryana assembled to discuss party’s strategy for the forthcoming parliamentary and assembly elections.
While Hooda was holding his Jan Kranti Yatra, Tanwar was holding parallel bicycle yatra across the state bringing fissures within the faction-ridden Congress to the fore.
Representatives from assembly segments, meanwhile, brainstormed the strategy for reaching out to the people under party’s programme “Congress Ghar-Ghar” to highlight various acts of omission and commission of the BJP Government led by Manohar Lal Khattar.
With that end in mind, the meeting decided to carry out the “Matka Phor & Tube Tor” programme to highlight the shortage of water and inadequate supply of electricity. “The people are suffering badly due to shortage of these facilities while the BJP is resorting to false propaganda to mislead residents,” Tanwar alleged.
He also took a dig at ‘self-styled’ leaders, who indulged in photo-ops to garner publicity saying that the party tickets for the Lok Sabha and the assembly polls would be given to those who reached out to the people.
Starting point: Garhi Sampla Kiloi
