Crime file: Dad dumps baby in dustbin, arrested, Devotee of Kalki ends life for friend and more


Hyderabad: Gurucharan Das, a 25-year-old man from Odisha, was arrested by the Madannapet police on Wednesday for abandoning his newborn baby boy in a dustbin.
Police said Gurucharan confessed that he had thrown the baby into the dustbin because he couldn’t bear the medical expenses of the baby. The baby was diagnosed with a kidney related disease. The infant has been sent to Niloufer hospital for treatment.
The boy was born at the Niloufer hospital on Sunday, and the doctors had informed the parents that one of the baby’s kidneys was not functioning properly. “Gurucharan felt he will not be able to bear the medical expenses of the child. Therefore, he decided to abandon the baby,” said Madannapet inspector S. Vinod Kumar.
On Monday night, Gurucharan took the baby out of the hospital and went to a deserted area in Madannapet. He dumped the baby in a dustbin at Kurmaguda and returned home.
“Our night patrolling team found the baby and immediately send it to nearest hospital,” said the inspector.
Later, the cops checked with the city hospitals if any infant was missing. “We got an alert from Niloufer Hospital that a baby boy had gone missing. Luckily, the mother of the boy, Malini, who had allowed her husband to take the baby, had not left the hospital,” said Kumar.
Police then traced Gurucharan, who is a plumber and lives at Fatehnagar. Cops booked a case against him under IPC Section 317 (for exposure and abandonment of child under 12 years, by parent or person having care of it).

Devotee of Kalki ends life for friend
Warangal: Thinking that her death would bring back her dead friend back to life, a woman named Kuntamala Tirumala, 39, a devotee of godman ‘Kalki Bhagwan’ committed suicide at Parkal town in Warangal three days ago.
Sources said that Tirumala had become a devotee of Tamil Nadu-based godman Kalki Bhagwan after a visit to his ashram 11 years ago. She was a regular visitor to the ashrams of Kalki Bhagwan, who once proclaimed himself the 10th avatar of Lord Vishnu.
Assumed missing after she suddenly disappeared from her mother’s residence in Parkal on Monday, on Wednesday Tirumala’s body was discovered floating in a  well in the village.
Married to a constable in Bollaram in Medak, sources said that Tirumala arrived in Parkal a fortnight ago on learning of the sudden death of her childhood friend Suhasini, a Christian.
Soon after her arrival, relatives of Suhasini reported Tirumala’s irrational behaviour to her relatives in Parkal.
Eyewitnesses said Tirumala spent hours beside the tomb of the deceased, explaining that she had been ordered by Kalki Bhagwan in a dream to bring her dead friend to life. She was said to have claimed before locals that her own death would revive her friend.
After she was prevented from visiting the tomb of her friend, Tirumala attempted suicide by drowning herself in a water tank at her house on Sunday. The attempt was foiled.
However, the following day, she suddenly rushed to a nearby well to commit suicide as her family was planning to take her to a witch doctor to cure her “illness.”
Meanwhile, the Jana Vigyana Vedika have appealed to the administration to take up awareness campaigns against superstitious beliefs.

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.
