On May 11, 2020, the Prosecutor filed an application for extension of time for probe. The Special Court did not pass any order on the merits of the application and kept it pending in view of the suo moto order passed by the Supreme Court on March 23 extending limitation period. The next day, the applicant moved an application seeking default bail. On May 15, the Special Court dismissed the application, holding that the time for probe stood extended in the light of the SC order extending limitationChallenging this, the applicant moved the High Court.The HC noted that the SC has held in the case S Kasi vs State that the suo moto extension of limitation is not applicable to investigation.A bench of Justice Anuja Prabhudessai said that since the extension of time for investigation curtails personal liberty, it cannot be ordered in a mechanical manner but has to be with “due application of mind and on being satisfied about the progress of the investigation and the reasons for detention as spelt out in the report of the prosecutor justifying such extension”.The Court noted that the application was signed by the investigating officer and was submitted to the court by merely appending the signature of the Prosecutor.”The application dated 6.5.2020 is nothing but a transmission of the request of an Investigating Officer for extension of time. Such request, which is submitted without being satisfied of the progress of the investigation and the reasons of detention, cannot be construed as a report of the public prosecutor as envisaged by proviso to Sub-section (4) of Section 36(A) of the NDPS Act”, the Court said.The main reason stated for seeking extension was the inability to complete the investigation due to lockdown declared because of Covid 19 pandemic.  The report did not disclose the progress of the investigation.”The application/report does not disclose the progress of the investigation conducted during this four and half months period i.e. from the date of the arrest till the date of the lock down. The report does not reflect steps taken for recording the statements of the witnesses and calling for the CDR and Chemical Analysis report during this period of four and half months. Under the circumstances, the reasons stated in the application cannot be considered as genuine. There are no justifiable reasons for extending the time for completing the investigation. Suffice it to say that the prayer for extension of time, which directly affects the liberty of the applicant, cannot be granted on the basis of an application/report which is not in conformity with the requirements of proviso to sub section (4) of Section 36A of the NDPS Act”, the HC observed. The Court further observed that “with grant of bail, liberty of the applicant-accused stands protected but with casual approach of the investigating officer and the public prosecutor in discharging their statutory duties, the societal interest stands dented.””It is not for the court to conjecturise the reasons or causes for such lackadaisical investigation or mechanical approach of the public prosecutor. Suffice it to say that such lapses tend to render the stringent provisions of bail nugatory and thereby deflect the criminal justice system. It is therefore necessary that the concerned authorities look into the above noted serious lapses, fix accountability, and take corrective measures in the matter”, the Court said in conclusion.Case DetailsTitle : Nayantara Gupta vs State of MaharashtraBench : Justice Anuja PrabhudessaiAppearances : Advocate Guarav Thote for the applicant; R.M.

‘Ensure That Elephants Held In Captivity By Temples Are Treated In A Humane & Dignified Manner’: Madras High Court To Authorities

first_imgNews Updates’Ensure That Elephants Held In Captivity By Temples Are Treated In A Humane & Dignified Manner’: Madras High Court To Authorities Sparsh Upadhyay28 April 2021 9:01 PMShare This – xThe Madras High Court on Tuesday (April 27) appealed to the relevant authorities to ensure that the elephants held in captivity by the various temples are treated in a humane and dignified manner, are provided sufficient food and water and shelter from the heat, and not otherwise beaten or mistreated in any manner or form.The Bench of Chief Justice Sanjib Banerjee and Justice Senthilkumar Ramamoorthy was presiding over a PIL filed by one Rangarajan Narasimhan, concerning temple elephants and other elephants owned by private individuals.The Court noted that there were two aspects to the present matter:-Treatment of the elephants in captivity, particularly in several temples in the State. Desirable prohibition of the wonderful animal being domesticated or used as a beast of burden any furtherThe Petitioner submitted that two elephants by the names of Andal and Lakshmi at the Srirangam Temple were without mahouts. Though the State didn’t admit the position, however, the Court remarked,”It has to be immediately looked into whether the two elephants are interacting with any person who is attending to them, since elephants are known to be attached to individuals and even emotional to some extent.”Further, asking the relevant authorities to ensure that the elephants are treated in a humane and dignified manner, the Court also remarked that they should be provided with sufficient food and water and shelter from the heat and not otherwise beaten or mistreated in any manner or form.Importantly, the petitioner submitted that the elephants in captivity should be treated in accordance with the provisions of the Tamil Nadu Captive Elephant (Management and Maintenance) Rules, 2001. Noting this submission, the Court remarked,”Since such provisions have been put in place under the Wild Life Protection Act, 1972, it is necessary that the State, through officials of the Forest Department, in conjunction with officials of the HR & CE Department, reports on the compliance of such rules at every temple site with any captive elephant. Such a report has been directed to be filed when the matter appears next on June 8.Case Title: Rangarajan Narasimhan v.

Half a million people pledge to storm Area 51 to ‘see them aliens’

An additional 494,000 users responded that they were interested.“We will all meet up at the Area 51 Alien Center tourist attraction and coordinate our entry,” according to the event organizer, whose Facebook handle is Sh**posting cause im in shambles.“If we naruto run, we can move faster than their bullets. Lets see them aliens,” the organizer wrote, referring to the Japanese anime “Naruto” title character’s distinct running style, in which he runs with his arms outstretched straight behind him. The term is also a popular meme.“Lets see them aliens,” he concluded.Area 51 is the part of the Nevada desert located in the highly-classified remote detachment of Edwards Air Force Base, where conspiracy theorists believe UFO spacecraft are stored.Would-be alien buddies should brace themselves for possible disappointment, though.Some social media users expressed concern over the timing of the event.“Folks, bad news,” Facebook user Jen Petrilli, posted on the event’s discussion page. “This event is planned for September 20th. While I love this planning time, this gives them a lot of time to move the aliens out of Area 51. If we want to get our extraterrestrial pals into safe and loving arms, this needs to ASAP.

ICE detainees in facilities with coronavirus cases ordered released by judge

first_imgMivPiv/iStock(NEW YORK) — Immigrations and Customs Enforcement detainees must be immediately released from county jails where cases of novel coronavirus have been confirmed, a federal judge in New York ordered Thursday night.The 10 detainees asked for their release “because of the public health crisis posed by COVID-19,” their petition said.The men and women had been detained by federal immigration authorities and had removal proceedings pending in immigration court. They were being held at three jails in New Jersey where either detainees or staff had tested positive for coronavirus.“Each Petitioner suffers from chronic medical conditions, and faces an imminent risk of death or serious injury in immigration detention if exposed to COVID-19,” the decision said. The jails where the detainees were being housed has each reported confirmed cases: two detainees and one correctional officer in the Hudson County Jail; one detainee at the Bergen County Jail; and a superior officer at the Essex County Jail.“The nature of detention facilities makes exposure and spread of the virus particularly harmful,” Judge Analisa Torres wrote.“Moreover, medical doctors, including two medical experts for the Department of Homeland Security, have warned of a ‘tinderbox scenario’ as COVID-19 spreads to immigration detention centers and the resulting ‘imminent risk to the health and safety of immigrant detainees’ and the public,” she added.The decision also cited the “failure” of jail operators to say with certainty the detention facilities were in a position to allow inmates to remain 6 feet apart, as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.New York has been particularly hard-hit by the virus. There have been at least 39,125 cases in the state and at least 454 deaths, according to data compiled by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

First direct evidence of life under Antarctic shelf ice

first_imgA topic of current interest to Antarctic marine biologists is the possibility of a biome at considerable distances from the open sea under the vast, permanent ice shelves that fringe areas of Antarctica. Such biological information is one of the aims of the present Ross Ice Shelf project1, an attempt to drill through ice 500 m thick at 82°30′S, 166°00′W, a site 450 km from the ice front in the Ross Sea. We have already obtained, under unusual circumstances, direct evidence of a biome under shelf ice at least 100 km from the open sea.last_img read more

Figgy brack

first_imgFiggy brack is an easy-to-make rustic classic. This particular recipe is a variation on the traditional Irish brack, a rich moist heavily fruited cross between a cake and a type of bread.There are several definitions of how the name barm brack came about.One of these is that it evolved from the old English word ‘beorma’ meaning yeasty (some bracks are yeast leavened) and the old Irish word ‘breac’ meaning speckled, which is like the fruit studded dough of the barm brack.You can see how these two words could easily have become the name we now know as barm brack.Makes 24 loavesChopped glacé cherries – 820gCalifornian raisins – 1.6kgChopped dried figs – 820gCurrants – 820gStrong tea – 3kgRum Belmonte – 36g  (UF&Bi 01700)Vanilla Mauritius – 36g  (UF&Bi 01800)Bun Spice Flavour – 1 tspn (UF&Bi 02252)Whole egg – 600gPlain flour – 3.77kgBicarbonate of soda – 75gSoft brown sugar – 1.1kgTotal weight – 12.683kgMethodMake the tea and while it is still hot pour it over the prepared fruit and the combined flavours in a bowl. Cover and leave this fruit mixture overnight at room temperature.The next day butter and flour 24 tins before mixing the dough. Combine the eggs and tea-swollen fruit mixture in the bowl.Sieve the flour and the bicarbonate of soda twice. Then, add the flour, along with the sugar, to the bowl and thoroughly combine all the ingredients. The mixture must not be too firm so a little milk may be added, if needed.I use quite small tins, 18cm x 8cm, so the mixture above will give you 24 bracks of just over 500g each before baking. Bake at 160ºC for around 90 minutes, but they may need more or less time depending on the oven used.Inserting a skewer and checking if it comes out clean can test the degree to which they are baked. Once baked rest in the tins for 20-30 minutes before turning out and cooling on a wire rack.• When it comes to fruit you could use dried dates, dried cherries, prunes or dried apricots. Try experimenting to create seasonal favourites.• For a crunchy top sprinkle with demerara sugar before baking.• You could finish it like a stollen brushed with melted butter and dredged in icing sugar.• Store in an airtight container to keep for three to four days.last_img read more
