Colonel P Bakshi, father of 22-year-old woman who has been booked for allegedly posting abusive comments on Chandigarh traffic police‘s Facebook page, today hoped the matter will be resolved, maintaining that his daughter was anguished over police not taking concrete action following theft of her vehicle.

Bakshi hoped the matter will be resolved, saying he had talked to senior police officials here and hoped “they will take a lenient view of the matter.”

Henna Bakshi, who claims to be winner of Geeta Chopra bravery award over a decade back for nabbing a burglar, was booked on Friday for allegedly using abusive language in her posts on UT traffic police’s Facebook page.

The post-graduate student and another person were booked under various sections of the Information Technology Act at industrial area police station on a complaint by a traffic police personnel.

Heena‘s father said there was no warning or parental guidance advised by the police in her case and penal action was invoked under the IT Act.

He lamented that before registering the case, no one from the police spoke to the family.

“No one spoke to us, not even once, it (the case) came just out of the blue,” he said.

Bakshi told reporters his daughter was anguished as she felt police was not taking action after her vehicle was stolen.

“We are hoping they will understand as Henna had not written anything wrong and her comments were not intended for anyone in particular,” he said.

Defending the step taken by her daughter, Henna’s mother Ranjana Bakshi said, “I don’t think she has done anything wrong, I am myself a teacher and don’t think she wrote something really out of the way. My daughter was only expressing her anguish.”

“I don’t think all this (that Henna should have been booked) should have happened,” she said.

“We are hoping there is a solution to the problem,” Ranjana added.

Earlier, Henna had claimed she had to face harassment after her Multi Utility Vehicle was stolen from her friend’s house in Sector 18 on August 11, describing the process to register an FIR in the vehicle theft case as “stressful”.

She has also alleged that she was not contacted by the police regarding progress in the vehicle theft case and was not given satisfactory response when she tried to enquire.

The incensed lady posted this on Chandigarh Traffic Police’s Facebook on August 15; “You people kill us with your naakas n checkpoints. Harassing us if we are just driving around at night. But you have no ****** clue when somebody steals that car from under your eyes. The police started questioning me..If I was making this whole *** up or if someone actually stole it(sic).”

Chandigarh police cyber crime cell promptly zeroed in on Henna Bakshi from her IP (internet protocol) address and on Monday an FIR was filed against her under the IT Act with charges that are non-bailable and carry a jail term of up to three years.

Henna, however, has denied she posted any objectionable comments on the Facebook page, maintaining she had only tried to highlight the plight of the common man by questioning what efforts the police were making in recovering the car.

She had also said her comments were meant in general and not targeted anyone in particular.

Indo-Pak Peoples Cooperation Restores Hearing of a Child- Are the Governments Listening?


Pakistani child gets healing touch in India

HYDERABAD, September 19, 2012, The Hindu
Pakistani child gets healing touch in India

V. GEETANATH

On a political level, they may fight tooth and nail, but on a personal
level, people from India and Pakistan share one another’s anguish.
Khadija, 21 months old, is the latest example of how Indian doctors
rose to the occasion to extend a healing touch. Moreover, they did it
free of cost.

Little over a month ago, the girl was staring blankly at people around
her, trying to figure out what they were saying. Born deaf, she had
come to the Apollo Hospitals for a cochlear implant surgery, the first
such case from across the border.

The operation was done free of cost by the hospital, with financial
assistance from the Society to Aid the Hearing Impaired (SAHI), and
help from the Confederation of Voluntary Associations (COVA). As you
read the story, the girl is recovering at her home in Karachi,
Pakistan.

“We have switched on the machine and she is doing well. With proper
rehabilitation for the next one year or more, she should be like any
ordinary girl, hearing and talking in a normal manner,” says Dr.
Vinaya Kumar E.C., ENT consultant.

Such operations usually cost up to Rs. 12 lakh. However, SAHI
intervention meant that Adnan Adeel, an electrical engineer from
Karachi, and his wife Sahar Bano, had to just bear travel and boarding
expenses, for the operation of their second daughter.

“I didn’t realise that she was born deaf till she was 15 months old.
When I took her to a hospital, I was told she needed the cochlear
implant, and it would cost up to 2.5 million Pakistan rupees,” he
recalls.

It was while searching the Internet that he chanced upon the Apollo
Hospitals-SAHI initiative, and sent them an e-mail, as these
operations weren’t very common in his country.“I took out all my
savings, raised a loan, and even began scouring for donations, as it
is my responsibility to give her a better life. Except for SAHI, no
one responded,” he explains.

“We have helped in 100 cochlear implant operations, yet this was the
first request from abroad. We were apprehensive at first, and then
realised that we are here to help any needy child,” says Dr. Sunita
Reddy, Director, Vijay Group, and a SAHI member.

Mr. Adeel was prepared to go to any length for his ‘little one,’
though he had some initial apprehension regarding taking a “risk” and
coming to India. But ever since he landed here in the first week of
August, he has been overwhelmed by the “fantastic response” from the
people.

The couple, who celebrated Ramzan Id here, soon realised that many of
the local dishes were very similar to Pakistan — only the names
differed. There were also some setbacks, like the police issuing a
notice threatening to cancel his visa for participating in a public
meeting organised by COVA for the joint Independence Day celebrations
of India & Pakistan. A few right-wing activists had created a scene,
alleging that a Pakistan flag was being hoisted, before the police
restored calm.

If all this has shaken the 32-year-old’s feeling of gratitude, he
doesn’t show it. “My daughter got a new life here. The love, affection
and care extended to us are beyond my expectations. These memories
will remain lifelong; I came here as a family of three, and I am
returning home with a large family,” he smiles, preparing for the
journey home.

SALEM, SEPTEMBER  19,  THE HINDU

The auto-rickshaw driver, T. P. Vijayaraj, who set himself afire on Monday to protest against Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa’s visit to Madhya Pradesh, succumbed to his burns at the Government Medical College Hospital here on Tuesday.

The sources in the hospital told The Hindu that Vijayaraj died at 11.45 am “despite the best efforts put in by a team of doctors to save him.” The burns, a senior doctor said, were deep since he had drenched himself with petrol before setting himself on fire near Old Bus Stand.

As the news of his death spread, a strong crowd, including members of various Tamil outfits and political parties, gathered on the hospital premises. They raised slogans against a few State and national political parties blaming them for the death of the 28-year old youth. Workers of the VCK and the PMK attempted to block traffic near the Collectorate. Naam Thamizhar Movement’s founder leader Seeman visited the hospital.

Meanwhile Vijayaraj’s father R. Thangavelu submitted a petition to District Collector saying that he would accept the body provided Town Police, who are investigating the case, register cases under section 306 of the Indian Penal Code against a few Congress and BJP’s national leaders for “inviting Rajapaksa” as this had led to his son’s suicide. He urged the police to hand over him the photocopy of his son’s 36-page ‘last letter,’ which he had reportedly written prThe auto-rickshaw driver, T. P.

BACKGROUND FROM SALEM

Vijayraj, a auto rickshaw driver self immolated himself protesting the arrival of Rajapakshe the president of Srilanka and the chief architect of the war and the genocide against tamils in srilanka. The salem resident did this after writing a thirty four page dying declaration writing in detail about the reasons for his frustation.

Rajapakshe lands in Sanchi, Madhya Pradesh on invitation from Sushma Swaraj, BJP leader and Leader of the opposition. He passed away today.

The act though rash only exposes the frustrations of the people of tamilnadu who share empathy to the plight of the tamils in Srilanka. The Dravidian parties show their false dentures once in a while, but the hollow promises only weaken the position of Tamil’s in Srilanka. The Police for the past six hours have refused to give the dying declaration written by Vijayaraj. vHe passed away yesterday and it has been 24hours since his death. The Police are refusing to give his written statement that he intended for public distribution. He has also given a dying declaration to the Magistrate. None of the Dravidian parties nor MP’s, Mla’s have cared to pay respects nor heed to the demands.. exposing them.
