first_imgEBD fatal accidentA 61-year-old pedestrian, who was attempting to cross the McDoom Public Road, East Bank Demerara (EBD), last week was killed after being struck by a vehicle driven by a Police Constable.Dead is Colin Crawford of Lot 111 Covent Garden, EBD.Reports are at about 17:15h, the Police rank, who is stationed at the Brickdam Police Station’s Impact Base Unit, was driving motorcar PLL 9532 along the EBD road on the eastern driver’s lane of the western carriageway when the accident occurred.The three-lane procedure for vehicles traversing the EBD roadway was active at the time of the incident.According to reports, the policeman was proceeding south along the eastern side of the western carriageway in the vicinity of Stoby’s Jewellery at McDoom, when Crawford was seen standing on the western side of the eastern carriageway close to the median that separates the eastern and western carriageway on that road.The police in a statement said that the rank told investigators that he was about to pass the pedestrian who “suddenly jump over the said median” and attempted to cross the western carriageway from east to west.According to the police, the constable alleged that upon seeing Crawford trying to rush across the busy roadway, he applied brakes to avoid a collision with the man, but due to the short distance between the vehicle and the pedestrian, it was unavoidable.The 61-year-old is said to have collided with the left side front fender of the constable’s motorcar.As a result of the impact from the collision, Crawford fell onto the front windscreen of the vehicle and then bounced onto the roadway.This publication understands that the injured man was picked up by the police constable with the assistance of public-spirited persons and taken to the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC) for medical attention.He died some three hours after the accident.At the time of the accident, a breathalyser test was conducted on the police constable and no trace of alcohol was found in his system.According to the police, checks were made around the McDoom village for witnesses and to obtain any CCTV footage from residents in the area but these attempts proved futile.Meanwhile, the fate of the police constable who was driving the vehicle at the time of the accident is still to be determined.This is according to Deputy Police Commissioner and Traffic Chief, Linden Isles, who told this newspaper on Saturday that the rank has not been charged to date.“Because he would have spent his 72 hours, as a member of the Force, under close arrest. So he was in custody for 72 hours, and after that 72 hours have elapsed, there is a procedure that has to be followed before any action can be taken. So he is on duty pending the investigation and when we are done investigating we will send the file for advice from the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) on the way forward.”last_img read more

Bail for man accused of lying about his religion for marriage

first_imgThe Jharkhand High Court on Saturday granted bail to Raqibul Hassan alias Ranjit Kohli, who was arrested five years ago on a complaint from national-level air rifle shooter Tara Shahdeo that he had lied to her about his religion and married her. Acting Chief Justice H.C. Mishra allowed Mr. Hassan’s bail plea on the ground that he had spent five years in judicial custody.Conditions for bail The court granted the bail on the condition that Mr. Hassan should deposit his passport, not influence witnesses and appear in the trial court on every date of hearing. If any of the conditions were flouted, then the Central Bureau of Investigation, which was handed over the case in 2015, was at liberty to move the court for cancellation of bail, the court ruled. The Bench also asked Mr. Hassan to deposit cash sureties of ₹15,000 each.Mr. Hassan was arrested on August 26, 2014, in New Delhi after Ms. Shahdeo filed an FIR against him at the Hindpiri police station here the same year, accusing him of marrying her after lying to her about his religion and physically torturing her. Ms. Shahdeo hails from Ranchi and her marriage with Mr. Hassan, which was termed “love jihad”, took place in 2014. She had filed a divorce petition on January 6, 2017, and the principal judge of the family court, B.K. Gautam, had on June 27, 2018, granted the divorce on the ground that the accused had lied about his religion and subsequently subjected Ms. Shahdeo to domestic and physical violence and allegedly exerted pressure on her to change her religion. On July 27 this year, a CBI court framed charges against Mr. Hassan and four of his alleged associates in connection with the case. The charges were framed under IPC sections 120B (criminal conspiracy) and 212 (harbouring an offender).last_img read more

Zidane Says Madrid Has Found New Club for Gareth Bale

first_imgHOUSTON, Texas (AP) — Coach Zinedine Zidane says that Real Madrid wants to part ways with Gareth Bale, six years after it broke a world transfer record to sign the Wales winger.Zidane said on Saturday following a friendly in Houston, Texas, that he expects Madrid to conclude a transfer for Bale to another club “in the coming days.”“We’ll have to see if it goes through tomorrow, if it does then all the better,” Zidane said. “Let’s hope, for everyone’s sake, that it happens soon. The club is dealing with the club that he’ll move to.”Zidane made the comments after Bale did not play in the 3-1 loss to Bayern Munich in a preseason game.Madrid paid a then-record transfer of 100 million euros (then 132 million dollars) to sign Bale from Tottenham in 2013.Bale went on to help Madrid win four Champions League titles, one Spanish league, one Copa del Rey and several minor trophies.He also scored some spectacular goals, including a memorable bicycle kick for the first of his two goals in the 2018 Champions League final victory over Liverpool.But he has been injury prone and been criticized by Madrid fans for often underperforming during stretches of the season.Madrid is looking to overhaul its squad after one of its most disappointing seasons in recent memory when it was out of contention for any major title months before the end of the campaign.“It’s nothing personal. There comes a time when things are done because they need to be done,” Zidane said. “The situation will change and it’s for the best for everyone.”___TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more
