Investigations into Appu Ghar case intensify

TIMES NEWS NETWORK New Delhi: With the autopsy report ruling out cardiac arrest as the cause of victim’s death in the Appu Ghar swing acci- dent, investigations relating to the case have intensified. The police have registered a case under Section 304 (Death due to negligence) and Section 201 (Destruction of evidence) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). The autopsy report re- vealed that the victim, Suresh Sehgal, a resident of Farid- abad, had died of multiple in- ternal injuries which could have been possibly caused by falling off the swing. A few members of the Appu Ghar management were questioned by the police on Tuesday. Vice-president of the company, Jasra, general man- ager, SC Malhotra, administra- tor, Colonel Prem Vijeshwar, supervisor, Anupam, and PRO Poonam Lall were quizzed on the course of events on Sunday. ‘‘The management have maintained their stand. The victim had been feeling uneasy even before the ride, but he went on the swing at his son’s insistence,’’ said Appu Ghar’s advocate, Ramesh Gupta. He further added that the swing was stopped soon after the victim complained of un- ease. ‘‘Sehgal himself pried the latch open before the swing came to a halt, because of which he apparently fell down. The victim was given immedi- ate medical aid and subse- quently taken to a nearby hospital,’’ claimed Gupta. According to senior police of- ficials, the autopsy report now has to be connected to the ground circ*mstances, and only then can any further action be taken.

Former Miss India and social activist Nafisa Ali, who is the brand ambassador of Action Aid, was here to share her views and oversee rehabilitation work. She said the Best Bakery case should be tried outside Gujarat as it had failed to provide a secure environment for the victims to speak fearlessly.

Bangkok from Kolkata: Not a sober journey By Subhro Niyogi TIMES NEWS NETWORK Kolkata: Those travelling on the Bangkok-Kolkata sector by the Indian Airlines have witnessed some of the worst incidents of on-board behaviour by a section of inebriated passengers. The notoriety of drunken passengers travelling the Y-class, mostly carriers who bring garments from Bangkok to Kolkata, has led to families and tourists shunning the airline but the manage- ment is unperturbed. ‘‘We are aware that some carriers misbehave with airhostesses and co- passengers after a consuming alcohol but we cannot really do anything,’’ said an IA official. Despite being requested by Air Cor- poration Employees Union and Indian Commercial Pilots’ Association, the airline has refused to stop serving liquor on the route, fearing loss of busi- ness. ‘‘Carriers comprise 40 per cent of the passengers in this sector and we cannot ignore them. Nor can we deprive a ma- jority of the passengers of liquor due to the misbehaviour of some,’’ he said. But the official conceded the IA had stopped serving liquor in flights to Colombo from Chennai a couple of months ago on facing the same prob- lem. It had also stopped serving liquor on the Kolkata-Kathmandu sector a decade ago. Officials, however,argue that with in- tense competition on the Kolkata- Bangkok sector and other carriers of- fering liquor on board, discontinuing it would lead to a commercial disaster. Passenger held back Kolkata: Officers at the Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose Airport police station had no option but to arrest a passenger on the Indian Airlines flight from Bangkok following a joint complaint by 80 passengers on the flight. The 80 passengers on flight IC 727 from Bangkok to Kolkata filed a joint complaint against co-passenger Bhaskaran Krishnakutty Nayar, 46, for misbehaving during the flight.

TIMES NEWS NETWORK Mumbai: High-profile secretary to filmstars Rikku Rakesh Nath categorically denied on Tuesday that he was questioned by the Del- hi Police for his alleged hawala links with underworld gangster Dawood Ibrahim. A section of the media had reported that the star secretary was questioned by the spe- cial police cell at Lodhi Colony in New Delhi on August 1, on possible hawala links with the D-gang. ‘‘I am surprised with this ridiculous news item,’’ he told this newspaper on Tuesday.‘‘I don’t know why my name has been dragged into the controversy.But I believe somebody is spreading rumours to malign my name,’’ he said. According to Rikku, he hasn’t even been to Delhi in the recent past. ‘‘I haven’t been called for questioning, but if and when I am called by the police, I will definitely co- operate with them,’’ he said. He said he has never had any dealings with the underworld. ‘‘Except when I have had to field calls on my clients’ behalf from people claiming to be gangsters, he said. Rikku, however, refused to say which of his clients had received threatening calls from the underworld. Rikku represents a host of showbiz personalities including Adnan Sami, Amisha Patel, Namrata Shirodkar and Madhuri Dixit.

On Monday alone, a par- ticularly auspicious day, the statewide estimate of those taking a dip was 60 lakh, with more than a third coming from East Godavari district alone. The district collector there has pleaded to stop the special train arrange- ments to Rajahmundry, saying they can’t handle more crowds — there were pedestrian jams stretch- ing for 20 kms on Monday.
