Man puts principal, profs on porn call
K.K. Abdul Rahoof | DC
Hyderabad: A student of Chartered Accountancy, said to be suffering from depression, found an odd way of combating his state of mind: He put the mobile numbers of several academics and others on pornographic websites. He has been arrested by the police after a long search.
Among the 11 people whose mobile numbers he uploaded were the principal of J.B. Institute of Engineering and Technology, and two other professors. The victims have been harassed with lewd phone calls for the last four months.
Abusive emails and messages from random email IDs and mobile numbers stolen by the student also flooded the victims’ mail and message boxes. The wife of one victim even quarrelled with him about the continuous calls and left him.

P. Shaik Shavali
The student, P. Shaik Shavali, 27, managed to remain at large for a long time because he used SIM cards bought with stolen ID cards. Cyberabad Crime cops under the supervision of additional DCP, Crime, Janaki Sharmila, hunted him down after four months of pursuit.
Shaik, who is a native of Kurnool district, lived in the Happy Home Boys hostel while preparing for his CA exams. “He used to collect the victims’ phone numbers by browsing the Internet. He uploaded the numbers on an Indian pornographic website under the name of ‘Chandni’, inviting people for paid sex.
Under the phone numbers, he wrote that “clients” are assured young girls and guest houses in Hitech city. The victims started getting calls seeking girls day and night from all over India,” said N. Jayaram, SI of Cyber Crimes.
Adding to the victims’ misery, Shaik allegedly procured three SIM cards using stolen ID cards and started sending them abusive SMSes and making prank calls. “He flicked his roommates’ phones when they were sleeping and used them to make the calls and send SMSes,” the investigating officer said.

Student loses Rs 2L on IPL bets, kills himself
Hyderabad: Unable to pay back debts amounting to Rs 2 lakh, incurred as a result of betting in the Indian Premier League, B.Tech student K. Bagyaraj took his own life on Wednesday.
Bagyaraj, 22, hanged himself at his friend’s house in Devarakonda in Nalgonda district using a telephone cord. A suicide note found near his body revealed that he had a debt of Rs 2 lakh, which he was unable to repay.
Bagyaraj, a student of Indra Reddy Engineering College, Chevella, was staying in his friend’s house for a few days. On Wednesday morning, his friend discovered his body hanging from a telephone cord with a suicide note, which stated that he was not able to pay back the debt he took from his acquaintances for betting during IPL matches, said Devarakonda inspector Rajeswar Rao. The suicide note also listed moneylenders who had lent him the money and the sums he had to pay them.
Bagyaraj had sold his bike to make the payments but it was not enough. His friends told the police that the moneylenders had started hounding Bagyaraj who ran away from them. He left college 20 days ago and went back to his village but did not stay in his own home.
His father, Venkatiah, who is a farmer, said that he used to send his son money even though it meant getting into debt himself because he believed Bagyaraj would soon get a good job. The money he sent also went into betting.
Friends and classmates of Bagyaraj said that he had lost the entire amount in the first few bets he placed. “To regain the amount he lost, he started taking money from his acquaintances and engaged in continuous betting,” one of his friends said. He owed Rs 2 lakh to different people. A case has been booked under Section 374 of the CrPC. The body has been sent to Devarakonda for the post-mortem.

ATM heist inside job, 3 arrested
Bengaluru: The theft of Rs 19.86 lakh from a Canara Bank ATM on June 8 has been solved with the arrest of three men, including a security guard, who masterminded the theft as he knew how to load money into the machine. Major part of the cash and a gas cutter used to cut open the ATM and two vehicles have been recovered.
The police said the three arrested, M. Raghu (34), C. Mahesh (40) and B. Sunil (32), were all from Hassan. The main accused, Raghu, was working as an assistant field officer with Checkmate Security Agency, which ferries cash to ATMs of several banks.
Raghu, though worked as a security officer, stood in if any technician, who loads money at the ATMs, remained absent. He decided to target the Canara Bank ATM at Nagashettyhalli as no security guard was posted at the booth and as the CCTV camera was not working.

On June 8, soon after they got hold of the ATM, they cut the cut the connection to the ATM camera. Later, Sunil, who works in a gas welding unit, cut through the ATM to access the cash. Of the three, Mahesh worked in a power plant, said city police commissioner Jyothiprakash Mirji.
The Sanjaynagar police, who cracked the case, said, “We made a list of all the custodians who loaded cash to the ATM. After a thorough analysis, we could zero in on Raghu as his mobile phone signals were located near the ATM machine on the day of the theft.
He confessed to the crime after a thorough grilling. He was picked up from Bengaluru, while the other two were arrested in Hassan.  After the theft, Raghu had attended work at the security agency to not raise any suspicion. Along with his security agency job, he also worked at a dairy for the last two years,” the Sanjaynagar police said.
“He had run up some debts and plotted the ATM theft to clear the loans. He recently met with an accident and had suffered fractures. After he recovered, he hatched the plot to target an ATM,” the police said.
The Canara Bank ATM was cut open and Rs 19.86 lakh in cash was stolen in Nagashettyhalli, barely 100 metres away from the bus stop. The theft occurred between 6.50 pm and 7.30 pm after the last withdrawal was made at 6.40 pm. The trio had entered the ATM through a side door from outside and immediately pulled down the shutters in front of the entrance, making it appear as if the ATM was closed.
Using glass cutters, they cut through the machine and the cassette to get the money. Despite knowing the standard procedure, bank authorities had not posted a security guard outside the ATMMirji said another memo has been sent to banks across the city to heighten security arrangements at their ATMs. Even after repeated meetings.

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.
