One held on murder charge
According to the police, Abdul, son of Mohammad Kadir, a resident of Wazirabad Ramghat, had gone missing since Monday morning. His father suspected the involvement of a carpenter, Mohammad Riaz, of having kidnapped and killed his child. Following sustained interrogation, Riaz allegedly confessed to having committed the crime.
At his instance, Abdul's body was recovered from the bushes near railway tracks at Sriniwaspuri in South Delhi.
Riaz allegedly told the police that he had committed the crime at the behest of Kadir's brother, Sabir. The two brothers had developed enmity following a monetary dispute involving a very small amount. The police said Sabir was also being questioned in connection with the case.
On December 17, the police learnt that a couple from Jallandhar in Punjab had been trying to procure passports on forged documents through an agent in the Capital. Acting on a tip-off that they would come to the Passport Office at Bhikaji Cama Place to receive the documents, the police laid a trap and arrested them. They were identified as Amarjit Singh and Palwinder Kaur. Two passports, a forged sponsorship letter and other incriminating documents were recovered from their possession.
During interrogation, Amarjit allegedly revealed that in 1998, he had joined the infantry division of the Indian Army.
CGHS scam: Three more cases registered
According to CBI sources, the cases have been registered in connection with three CGHSs -- Godawari, Avas Deep and Sahyadri -- in which other officials have also been named. They include inspectors (registrar of cooperative societies), U. S. Bhatnagar, Ram Nath and Ramesh Lal.
The agency has so far registered 70 cases in connection with the multi-crore CGHS scam and arrested seven persons.
Dismissal of teacher upheld
Upholding the decision of the Kendriya Vidyalaya Sanghathan Commissioner concerned, a Division Bench of the Court comprising Justice M.K. Sharma and Justice R.C. Chopra said there had been no violation of the procedure while punishing the teacher as alleged by the petitioner.
The teacher had challenged the decision of the Sanghathan on the ground that it had not followed the procedure as provided in the Education Code of the Kendriya Vidyalaya Sanghathan
