Law and order situation has collapsed in Haryana: Bhupinder Singh Hooda
Former Haryana chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda on Tuesday claimed that the law and order situation in the state has collapsed under the BJP-JJP government
Former Haryana chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda on Tuesday claimed that the law and order situation in the state has collapsed under the BJP-JJP government.
The Leader of the Opposition in a statement held the coalition government responsible for the “rising crime graph” and said no one was safe in the state, be it the common man or an MLA. “The situation has become such that within a week, three Haryana MLAs have received death threats. These include BJP MLA Sanjay Singh (Sohna), Congress MLAs Renu Bala and Surendra Pawar,” he said. Hooda demanded proper security for all MLAs and action against those who have issued threats.
“It has been seen many times that after committing crimes in other states, miscreants come and hide in Haryana because criminals feel safe in the state,” he said. Hooda said the NCRB data for the last few years has “exposed” the working style of the government. “Statistics show that there are three to four murders, about half a dozen rapes, a dozen kidnappings and more than 100 thefts, robberies, dacoities, and ransom incidents in Haryana every day. Haryana has left behind bigger states in drug addiction and riots,” he said.
Four days into the job, Bihar environment minister Tej Pratap Yadav landed into his first controversy on Friday after the opposition Bharatiya Janata Party red-flagged the presence of his brother-in-law Shailesh Kumar at an official review meeting. BJP leader and former deputy chief minister Sushil Kumar Modi promptly aimed at chief minister Nitish Kumar, who dumped the BJP and formed the government in a coalition with seven parties including the Rashtriya Janata Dal.

A woman and her paramour were arrested for assaulting and threatening her minor son after he saw them in an objectionable position here, police said on Thursday. The woman's paramour, Vishal, allegedly burnt the 13-year-old's face and feet with a hot sieve and also threatened to chop his legs after the boy threatened to complain against him.
The incident took place in Dehri-on-Sone, an industrial township in western Bihar's Rohtas district. Police said they were yet to identify the girl. Witnesses said they saw two men on the bike with the young girl. She landed in front of a container truck that was behind the motorcycle and was crushed to death. The two men on the bike escaped. Dehri station house officer Rajiv Kumar said they were trying to identify the girl and the two men.
Carcasses of at least four Indo-Pacific Finless Porpoises with fins allegedly chopped off were found in the coastal district of East Midnapore in West Bengal on Friday. A team of biologists working along a stretch of a beach in East Midnapore found the carcasses. The most distinct feature of the finless porpoise is that it lacks a dorsal fin. Instead, it has large flippers on their sides.
