an edge or not So ifanypne thinks that ball tracker will help him he should getthe concept right As far as fielding team’s referrals areconcerned the wicketkeeper should be the DRS captain Heshould be

Sewri-Nhava Sheva Mumbai Trans Harbour Link got a push with the Union Ministry of Environment and Forests (MoEF) granting the project an in-principle approval The project viewed as a vital connector to the upcoming Navi Mumbai International Airport was stalled for want of environment clearance for several months Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis said “As soon as the notification for the final clearance is in we will close the loan agreement with JICA for the trans-harbour link I had earlier said after my Japan tour that we will issue tenders for the project in March I reiterate that by March we will start the tendering process for the project and plan in such a way that the project is completed in 2019” Prime Minister Narendra Modi had recently taken up the project for discussion with state functionaries which led to fast-tracking of the approvals Fadnavis added A senior state government official who did not wish to be named said “There is one condition that the state will have to fulfill before the ministry grants a final clearance However it is just a procedural formality and we hope to complete it soon” For final clearance the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) which is the state implementing agency for the project has to make a fresh application for tribal rehabilitation in the forest area that will be impacted by the project as per the Forests Rights Act This is to certify that the project will not impact any tribal life in the forest areas that it will pass The MMRDA has already communicated to the environment ministry there is no tribal life along the alignment of the 22-km Sewri-Nhava Sheva link but will now have to follow due procedure as per the Forests Rights Act to state the same The official added that the government is looking at starting the tendering process for construction of the Rs 12000-crore trans harbour link in March on a cash contract basis Three earlier attempts to bid out the project have drawn a blank Simultaneously MMRDA is in the process of working out a formal loan agreement with the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) to fund the project The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led Maharashtra government has been aggressively trying to fast-track the trans harbour link touted the country’s longest sea link as the Navi Mumbai airport is already under tendering The government wants to have the link across Mumbai’s harbour to the airport ready by the time the airport commences operations so that it can be made easily accessible to fliers The project has faced several green hurdles with its alignment proposed to pass through mudflats at Sewri on the island city and those on the mainland side at Nhava as well as the Thane creek Environmentalists have flagged potential adverse impacts of the project such as destruction of the mudflats coercing Mumbai’s seasonal visitors the flamingos to search for other homes with construction activity likely to dent their natural habitats 2019 deadline for coastal freeway The state government has set a target of 2019 for completion of the ambitious coastal freeway from Nariman Point to Kandivali “The project had become an annual feature in the government’s functioning and wasn’t moving forward at all But now within one year all approvals required from the Union government to start work on the coastal road are in Now it’s the state government’s time to double the pace We will ensure that by 2019 my car runs on the constructed coastal freeway” Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis said The Union government on Wednesday released the final notification amending Coastal Regulation Zone norms to permit reclamation for a coastal road Besides setting a deadline for the coastal road Fadnavis also vowed to set up the state

am Punjab and Haryana High Court Related News THE PUNJAB and Haryana High Court has castigated Haryana’s Director General of Police (Human Rights) Anant Kumar Dhull a 1985-batch IPS officer while dismissing his review petition against a verdict passed by the HC in February 2015 In that verdict the HC had indicted Dhull for wrongly prosecuting a man on charges of rape and murder of his own daughter in 1993 The HC had even ordered government to pay financial compensation to victim and recover the same from Dhull and the then SHO who investigated the case The case pertained to false prosecution of one Ram Sarup resident of Pehowa in Kurukshetra district on charges of rape and murder of his own daughter in 1993 Dhull was then Superintendent of Police Kurukshetra Dhull’s review petition was dismissed by Justice K Kannan on February 3 The written order was released Monday “He (Dhull) must have had his own head hung in shame for what has happened This was verily an occasion for atonement It is a pity that he still does not feel that way and looks for a scapegoat for the Himalayan blunder” Justice K Kannan wrote in the judgment Justice Kannan further remarked “He (Dhull) failed to exercise adequate care and supervision that had caused the derailing of justice It cannot be a situation of no one being responsible for falsely prosecuting an innocent man and heaping insults on him If somebody must take the blame the Superintendent of Police justly ought to take that blame” After the Kurukshetra court acquitted Ram Sarup in the case in August 1997 on a CBI report that failed to bring to book real offenders of the crime advocate RS Bains had filed his petition in the High Court for compensation It was on February 9 last year that the High Court while allowing Ram Sarup’s petition pending for over 16 years ordered the Haryana government to pay a compensation of Rs 5 lakh to Sarup along with an interest at 9 per cent from the date of institution of petition It totalled to Rs 10 lakh The court had ordered the state to recover compensation amount from Dhull and Gian Singh the then Station House Officer Pehowa police station But Dhull chose to file a review petition in the High Court The Indian Express had on February 12 last year first reported that by the time the decision in the case came neither maliciously prosecuted Ram Sarup nor his wife Javitri were alive to see their dignity restored and receive the compensation After Ram Sarup was falsely implicated in the case his family members who were farm labourers had to leave their village Lohar Majra in Pehowa They later settled in Beer Dandari village in neighbouring Karnal district Ram Sarup and his wife died during the pendency of the case Their four daughters and a son are all married now Justice Kannan has found the facts of the case as “extremely poignant tale of political interference in police investigation” while observing that “it was because of the intervention of a public spirited person who brought out substantial proof that a false case had been established as foisted on Ram Sarup to screen some persons connected to politically strong persons” Besides Dhull Haryana government had also filed a review petition in the HC against payment of compensation to Sarup However before hearing that petition HC had asked government to first deposit Rs 10 lakh compensation amount in the court’s treasury In its review petition the Haryana government had submitted that since Ram Sarup had died before the High Court ordered to pay compensation to him and “compensation for personal injury and humiliation is in the nature of personal damages which cannot survive to the legal representatives in terms of Section 306 of the Indian Succession Act” While dismissing the government’s petition as well Justice Kannan wrote in his judgement “Compensation for violation of human right transcends the frontiers of tort claims – Hence fetters of Section 306 of Indian Succession Act cannot apply” Justice Kannan has said that the amount of Rs 10 lakh deposited in the High Court by the Haryana government earlier can now be withdrawn by Ram Sarup’s children as the victim and his wife both had died long ago For all the latest Chandigarh News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by Sonup Sahadevan | Mumbai | Updated: July 3 2016 6:57 pm

remained unavailable for comment despite several attempts to contact her a top government source said she had recently written to the Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority (MHADA) informing them of her decision of surrendering her membership Earlier on June 14 2017 Justice Shantanu Kemkar had similarly withdrawn from the highrise society “I’m originally from Indore (Madhya

MHADA regarding non-holding of immoveable property excluding 500 square meters under the Urban Land (Ceiling and Regulation) Act was not pressed for in the case of the high-rise society Another

Germany’s rising stars are relishing their chance to shine at the Confederations Cup None of the side that won the 2014 World Cup final in Brazil is present in coach Joachim Loew’s squad in Russia with some having retired and others either injured or rested After a season in a struggling Schalke team central midfielder Leon Goretzka was one of those who seized his chance in Monday’s opening 3-2 win over Australia He scored Germany’s third goal in the Group B game with a deft strike from Joshua Kimmich’s pass having won the penalty which Julian Draxler converted for the second goal in Sochi But it was not all completely smooth and Germany’s young guns know there is still much room for improvement as they prepare to face Chile next on Thursday in Kazan “We cannot allow so many mistakes against Chile and we need to be more efficient up front” said Bayern Munich’s Kimmich Germany’s first-choice right-back at 22 Loew has warned his young charges that against Chile they must concentrate for “90 not 60 minutes” as they did against Australia and Goretzka agreed “There were good and bad phases against Australia In some situations we showed we can play good football but we lost our grip on the opponent in the last 20 25 minutes” said Goretzka “Chile have a different quality than Australia they’ve got world-class players” With key midfielders Toni Kroos and Sami Khedira among those left at home Goretzka is already stating his case for a place in the squad for next year’s World Cup in Russia “As a leader you first of all have to put in a good performance” said the self-confident 22-year-old who won his sixth cap against Australia “That is the first step then you can start to take care of others and bring them along “I am a ‘work-in-progress’ but that was definitely my most

be vocal about socio- political issues but actress-filmmaker Renuka Shahane believes film stars are not considered important enough to voice their opinion in India and are often trolled for speaking out “It is unfortunate because generally people think that actors are earning too much money and they’re doing too little for the country There is that kind of jealousy to the common public So when they get a chance to troll an actor for whatever he or she’s saying they do it” Shahane told PTI The director says as actors pay their taxes they have a right to speak out just like the celebrities in Hollywood “We are taxpayers We have a right to participate in all kinds of discussion Also it’s a democracy so it’s our right Actors all over the world are taking serious stands about things be it climate change or political racism “If Hollywood can do that or Thailand or South Korea can do that then why can’t we Why actors here are not considered important enough to say things” The 51-year-old star who is at the 10th edition of the NFDC Film Bazaar to pitch her story “Tribhanga” says there is a need for more women storytellers as Indian films often don’t capture the patriarchy affecting urban women “I think very often urban India is not represented in Indian cinema especially women You get to see stories about rural India and the patriarchy that affects rural women But the patriarchy that is inherent and there in urban India there’s nothing much about it” Shahane says The actress says there should be more individual acceptance for women in the industry and they should be given equal focus just like their male co-actors “According to me projects by women for women and for women should be made We should deal with women as individuals without them being somebody’s wife sister or mother Hindi women-oriented films do chronicle such stories but men still play an important role in it which should not happen” Tribhanga is the story of Nayan Anu and Masha and weaves a complex tale that goes back and forth in time through the generations of the same family from the ’60s to the modern day Talking about her project Shahane says “In my film men are appendages they just come and go The idea for ‘Tribhanga’ came from the Odissi dance pose which is asymmetrical yet so magical There is something magical about imperfection Through this I want to show the strong presence of
