Police to announce cash reward for information on Usmani

Mumbai: Maharashtra Police plans to announce a cash reward for information on Indian Mujahideen (IM) operative Afzal Usmani, who recently fled from court premises.
Various police teams, specially formed to track down Usmani, have fanned out across the country but have been unable to find any clue about his whereabouts so far, a police officer said here on Sunday.
A cash reward may be announced for information leading to Usmani's arrest, if he is not traced in the next few days, a police officer said, but did not divulge the amount that would be offered.
Suspecting that Usmani might attempt to cross over to Nepal, police forces of Bihar, Uttarakhand, Uttar Pradesh, Sikkim as well as West Bengal have been alerted and photographs of the terror suspect have been circulated.
Police teams have also been dispatched to Usmani's home state Uttar Pradesh and the neighbouring state of Bihar, the officer said, adding that he had built up a good network in the two states, during his heydays.
Usmani's photographs with his beard and without his beard, his case details, possible places he could be found, his fingerprints, as well as details about his relatives, friends and neighbours, have also been provided to police teams and informants in Aurangabad, Thane, Pune, Vashi in Maharashtra, besides Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka and other neighboring states.
On Friday, 37-year-old Usmani was brought to the Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA) court along with 22 others from Taloja Central Jail in Navi Mumbai, for a hearing.

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.
