Muzaffarnagar: A special cell comprising an additional Superintendent of Police, two DySP and 30 police inspectors, set up to investigate cases related to riots here, has started collecting evidence.
The special cell was formed on the instructions of the UP government, District Magistrate, Kaushal Raj Sharma said on Monday. Close to 1,700 arms licences have been cancelled in the area since the riots erupted and notice issued to 5,000 other arms license holders, the DM said.
A total of 7,198 people from 4,729 families are at present living in 41 relief camps set up by the administration, he said, adding the problem has largely been witnessed in 32 villages of Muzaffarnagar. Senior Superintendent of Police Praveen Kumar said that close to 20 Special Investigation Teams have been constituted to probe the riot cases.
The special teams have been asked to go to camps to obtain complaints from the riot-affected people and people can even approach the SSPs camp office in the city to file the complaints, he said on Monday. Meanwhile, Bharatiya Kisan Union chief Naresh Tikait, who is accused of provoking violence, has demanded a CBI probe into the matter
JD(U) MP detained, prevented from visiting riot-hit areas
JD(U) MP Ali Anwar Ansari was on Tuesday prevented from visiting the riot-hit areas here and detained at the railway station by the UP police. Circle Officer, Sanjeev Bajpai said Ansari was detained as a preventive measure in view of the situation in the region.
Ansari said, "The state government has no problem when Congress president Sonia Gandhi and vice president Rahul Gandhi visited the area but it is resorting to such action against us when our effort is to bring peace in the trouble-torn areas." The JD(U) leader, who is a Rajya Sabha MP, said he wanted to visit the family members of the journalist killed in the clashes and also meet a group of people associated with social activist Medha Patkar, who was sitting on a dharna. He was detained at the GRP station.
"The government is not allowing us to go there. I am not somebody who will provoke communal feelings...There is no curfew in the area, so under what rule we have been prevented from going there," Ansari, who has been leading an organisation of backward Muslims, All India Pasmanda Samaj, said.
In-charge of UP Pasmanda Samaj Israr Ahmed Saifi and some other members of the organisation were also detained.

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.
