Karaikal: In a freak incident, a 28-year-old man suffered a bullet injury on his right shoulder due to accidentally firing of a pistol by a gang which was escorting a murder convict to Puducherry on Thursday evening.
According to police sources, Baskar (40), a murder convict lodged in the Karaikal sub-jail, was granted three-day parole to meet his ailing wife in Anita Nagar in Pudu­cherry. A gang of eight persons, identified as Prakash, Suresh, Sara­vanan,
Velmu­rugan, Sara­va­nan, Purush­o­t­haman, Karthik and Sathish, went to Karaikal in two cars to escort Baskar to Puducherry as he had rivalry with another gang in Puducherry. Baskar left in an SUV while Sathish, Prakash, Suresh and Karthik followed in another car. Even as the car crossed 50 metres from the Karaikal sub-jail, Suresh who was in possession of an illegal pistol, reportedly fired it by accident.
The bullet pierced the right shoulder of Prakash who was seated in the back seat of the car.
Preliminary investigations by the police revealed that Baskar’s wife had handed over the illegal firearm to Suresh to provide security to Baskar while he was being escorted to Puducherry.
The gang admitted Prakash to the Karaikal government hospital stating that he was hit by a bullet from a gun belonging to a Narikorava who had fled the scene. The police secured Karthik and have launched a search for others. Cases have been registered under sections 25 A and 27 of the Indian Arms Act and section 338 of the IPC. Further enquiries are on.

Negligent driver gets away with killing motorcyclist
Shashiprasad S. M. | DC
Bengaluru: Keeping a safe distance behind the vehicle before you while driving/riding will not just ensure your safety, but will also,
in case of an accident, make sure that negligent drivers get the maximum punishment under the law. In one such case before the High Court, a negligent driver got away with a mild punishment, despite having driven rashly enough to kill a motorcycle rider, who hit the bus from behind and died on the spot.
A lower court had sentenced him to one month imprisonment along with `1,000 fine after convicting him under 304 A of the IPC!
The state police filed an appeal against the lower court verdict, seeking an enhancement of the driver’s punishment. How­ever, the court turned down the appeal on the ground that even the deceased motorcycle rider was negligent, as he ‘did not keep a safe distance from the bus’!
The incident occurred in 2009, when the accused was driving toward Kundapur at a high speed and stopped the bus abruptly without any prior indication. The deceased, who was riding a motorcycle, rammed into the bus.
When the preliminary investigation was complete, the chargesheet was made against the bus driver. He was convicted to a month’s imprisonment and a fine of `1000 under section 304 A IPC.
When the police appealed, the case was transferred to the High Court, which observed in its verdict, “Perusal of the evidence of prime witnesses 1 to 3 clearly indicates that the rider of the motor cycle (deceased) did not keep a safe distance from the bus.
As the man has already been convicted, the State did not find any grounds to enhance the bus driver’s punishment from that meted out by the lower court.

I want to begin with a little story that was told to me by a leading executive at Aptech. He was exercising in a gym with a lot of younger people.

Shekhar Kapur’s Bandit Queen didn’t make the cut. Neither did Shaji Karun’s Piravi, which bagged 31 international awards.
