The Bench of Justices Pritinker Diwaker and Prakash Padia observed that the Supreme Court is already seized with this matter in Satyama Dubey & Ors. v. Union of India & Ors. and thus, it shall not be proper for the High Court to entertain this petition. “Undisputedly, the Hon’ble Apex Court is in seisin of the entire case and the matter is being taken as a Public Interest Litigation by the Hon’ble Apex Court. State of Uttar Pradesh has already been directed to file affidavit clarifying its stands. In the aforesaid facts and circumstances of the case, judicial propriety demands that it will not be proper for this Court to entertain the present petition on merits, especially when security has been provided to petitioners 1 to 6 and other family members of the deceased victim-girl on the observation made by the Hon’ble Apex Court and also on the basis of the directions issued by the Lucknow Bench of this Court on 01.10.2020 in a Suo Motu Petition,” the Court said. The Bench has clarified that if the family has any grievance, then they shall be at liberty to file appropriate petition/ application before the Supreme Court. The order has come in a habeas corpus writ petition allegedly filed on behalf of the victim’s family through one Surender Kumar, claiming to be the General Secretary of the Akhil Bharatiya Valmiki Mahapanchayat, allegedly based on instructions given by the family over telephone, via Whatsapp. (The State Government however disputed this position and submitted that details of Mr. Kumar are subjected to verification.) It was alleged that the immediate family of the deceased victim, i.e. her father, mother, two brothers, sister-in-law and grandmother have been illegally detained in their own homes by the UP Government. The plea disclosed that the family has been “gheraoed” at its own home since September 14, i.e. the date of the incident and only her brother was allowed to accompany her at the Hospital in Agra. Further, it was submitted that only on September 28, when she was being moved to Delhi, did the Government allow two more members of the family to visit her. It was also alleged that the family was not given custody of the victim’s corpse and they remained “forcefully confined” in their homestead land and continue to remain as such. Further it was submitted that the family has been prevented from even meeting or communicating freely, thereby violating their Fundamental Right to freedom of speech and expression as well as the right to receive information under Article 19(1)(a) of the Constitution. The plea was filed by Advocates Kashif Abbas Rizvi and Joun Abbas. The State on the other hand denied that the victim’s family was restrained. In fact, it categorically submitted that they are “free to move” but “they have never made any request before the Administration for going anywhere”. Further the State had argued that the writ petition is not maintainable as the matter is already sub-judice before the Supreme Court. It was also claimed that when the victim’s family was informed about filing of the present petition, they had categorically stated that they did not authorize any one to file such petition. The State also contended that pursuant to the direction given by the Hon’ble Apex Court, adequate protection and security has been provided to family members of the deceased victim-girl, including petitioners 1 to 6 and even personal Guards have been deployed on duty to ensure their safety. Moreover, CCTV Cameras have been installed near the house of the deceased victim-girl so that unwarranted and unsocial elements may not enter in the premises.Click Here To Download Order Read Order Next Storylast_img read more

first_imgAfter the departure from Sarajevo, over Bihać, Trieste, Venice, San Remo and Nice, Jasmin Grebić from Sarajevo, who rides his bike to Barcelona, arrived near Marseille.

Former cabinet minister Vic Toews cleared of conflict judicial council

first_imgWINNIPEG – The Canadian Judicial Council has rejected complaints that former federal cabinet minister Vic Toews, who is now a Manitoba judge, is unfit to remain on the bench after violating the Conflict of Interest Act.The council said Thursday the two complaints were reviewed by Justice Christopher Hinkson, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of British Columbia, who found nothing that would warrant Toews’ removal.“Chief Justice Hinkson notes that the (federal ethics) commissioner did not make any findings that put into question the integrity, good faith or credibility of Justice Toews,” the council said in a media release.“Upon a full review of all the relevant information, Chief Justice Hinkson found an absence of any information that would suggest an attempt to mislead or reveal conduct incompatible with the duties of judicial office.”Federal ethics commissioner Mary Dawson ruled in April that Toews violated the Conflict of Interest Act when he received money from two Manitoba First Nations for consulting services shortly after leaving federal office in 2013.Toews was appointed to the Manitoba Court of Queen’s Bench in 2014.Dawson said Toews broke a two-year cooling-off period required under law in one case involving the Norway House Cree Nation.In the other, she said Toews provided strategic advice for the Peguis First Nation about the transfer of military land, even though he had been involved with the same file as a minister.Toews filed an appeal of Dawson’s decision. He said his dealings with Norway House Cree Nation during his final year in office were very limited, and his advice to Peguis was not related to the land-transfer negotiations.The commissioner’s findings prompted the two complaints to the judicial council, alleging Toews’ actions impaired his ability to be a judge. Toews’ lawyer said Thursday he is happy the matter is finished.“I thought the (ethics) commissioner’s process was badly, badly flawed and unfair, and so I’m happy that everything’s over,” Robert Tapper said.Toews dropped his appeal of the ethics commissioner’s ruling last week to allow the judicial council probe to be completed. As such, the ethics commissioner’s findings stand, although they carry no penalty.Democracy Watch, an ethics advocacy group that had criticized Toews’ actions, expressed disappointment Thursday that the council found Toews did nothing that would call into question his integrity.“I don’t know how they reached that finding when he was found guilty of violating a conflict of interest law,” co-founder Duff Conacher said. “To face no penalty at all, or sanction, is a questionable ruling.”last_img read more

Delhi to vote for full statehood in this election says Atishi

first_imgNEW DELHI: People this time will vote for Delhi’s full statehood as not having the status is directly linked with concrete issues such as unemployment, women’s safety and lack of opportunities in higher education, AAP leader Atishi has said. Atishi is one of the seven candidates fielded by the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) for the Lok Sabha elections in Delhi. The AAP is contesting the elections with the slogan ‘Poorna Rajya Banao Jhadu ka Button Dabao’, telling people that Delhi will get full statehood if they vote for the party. Also Read – After eight years, businessman arrested for kidnap & murderThe Aam Aadmi Party’s Lok Sabha candidate for the East Delhi constituency said the party is “talking of concrete issues of lack of safety and security, cleanliness and employment that is linked to Delhi not having full statehood”. “People in Delhi this election are going to vote on these factors,” Atishi said. Noting that there is “no narrative” this election and people would vote based on local issues affecting them, she said, “Like in 2014, there was ‘Abki Baar Modi Sarkar’, in 2015, there was narrative to make Kejriwal as the chief minister but if you see in this election there is no narrative across the nation either in favour of anyone or against anyone”. Also Read – Two brothers held for snatchingsShe added that a lot of people who voted for the BJP in 2014 were “not natural BJP voters” but the ones hoping for change in favour of development. “When they voted for the BJP (in 2014), they thought it is on the agenda of development. They were also the elections that had mega narratives,” she said. “I think people would say we have seen consequences of voting for Modi, nothing changed in our lives. Our children still don’t have education, they don’t have jobs, women are still not safe. Now they will vote based on seeing the work that we (AAP) have done after coming to power,” the 37-year-old Oxford graduate said. On reforms in government school education in Delhi, Atishi said when the AAP came to power, there were multiple gaps that had to be dealt with. “One was that of the basic infrastructure, whatever infrastructure was there was poorly maintained. There were some schools in east Delhi having over 150 students in one class and with such infrastructure deficiency there is no way you can provide high quality education,” she said. “I think all this shortage of infrastructure gave this message to the children that you are second class citizens and you don’t matter in this world and you are not going to make it anywhere,” Atishi said. The second major challenge was “lack of accountability” which, she claimed, is a “hallmark of a government system”. “I think changing that mindset was the biggest challenge. Everyone in this system used to believe that this system couldn’t work,” she said. “Teachers are same, schools are same, children are same but the fact that you have a government in power that is willing to improve, an intent to improve and that changed things,” she said. But she noted that Delhi’s higher education is still facing a crisis. “You have 2.5 lakh students passing out of class 12 every year in Delhi and that number is increasing. There are only one lakh seats in higher educational institutes for which children from across the country are seeking admission. So there is definitely a crisis,” she said.last_img read more

For Decades Relievers Pitched Better Than Starters Not Anymore

Over the years, bullpens have eroded the workloads of starting pitchers. This season, relievers have accounted for the greatest share of pitching workload in Major League Baseball history: They have completed 41.1 percent of total innings through Wednesday, up from last year’s record of 40 percent. There are a variety of reasons for this trend, including teams becoming more aware of how starting pitchers tend to do worse each time through the opposing lineup and the increasing specialization of the sport.For more than 40 years, relievers had outperformed starters on a per-inning basis. But this season, through Wednesday, starters’ ERA is 0.02 points lower than that of relievers. Starters have not posted an ERA superior to that of relievers since 1973, but that gap has shrunk rapidly, and this year it could be potentially erased. As recently as 2012, the overall ERA of relievers was half a run better than that of starting pitchers.Perhaps this suggests that the sport has reached the limits of bullpenning and specialization — there are too many relievers employed. Through Tuesday, 492 different pitchers who primarily serve in relief have appeared in games this season.1At least 90 percent of games pitched as relievers. That already breaks the record set last season (488) and is up from 381 relievers in 2010 and 297 in 1998, the first season that MLB had 30 teams.This change in personnel may explain relievers’ decline in performance the first time through opposing lineups, relative to starting pitchers, a trend that Ben Clemens at FanGraphs documented in May and has continued into the summer. For the first time this century, starters have been better than relievers in their first time through the order in back-to-back seasons. Craig Edwards, also of FanGraphs, found there have been more low-leverage innings this year and poorer performance within them,2According to Leverage Index (LI), which is a measure of the relative “pressure” a player has faced. speaking to less meaningful baseball and more poor teams. Those innings have presumably been pitched by lesser relievers, diluting the group’s overall performance. There have been fewer meaningful innings this season — and also a greater volume of lesser-skilled relievers.A key decision for managers in today’s game is deciding whether to stick with a starter a third time through the lineup or to use the bullpen. And the gap between starters in that position and relievers has shrunk to its lowest level since 2005, as relievers have an advantage of only 49 points of opponent OPS this season compared with a 64-point edge last season and a century-high, 88-point difference in 2007, according to Baseball-Reference.com.Another reason for the convergence between starters and relievers is that starting pitchers are gaining relative skill. For the first time in the pitch-tracking era, which dates to 2007, the average fastball velocity of starting pitchers (93.3 mph) is less than 1 mph (0.8 mph) slower than that of relievers (94.1 mph). In 2012, relievers’ average fastballs were 1.7 mph faster than those of starters, and the difference has generally been shrinking since. Relievers’ overall fastball velocity has even declined this season, for the first time since 2008. Moreover, starters so far in 2019 have posted a higher difference between their strikeout rate and walk rate (14.5 percentage points) than relievers (13.9 percentage points). This is the first time starters have had a greater difference than relievers in the two rates since 1986.New technology is also allowing pitchers to improve the efficiency of their pitches. Starting pitchers also generally have a greater variety of pitches — and better command — than relievers, which is arguably one reason why they are starting pitchers and not relievers. If starters close the velocity gap, where relievers have traditionally held an advantage, they are closing a significant portion of the performance divide.Perhaps the game has swung too far in favor of relievers. Managers might want to wait a little longer on that call to the bullpen, or at least consider whom they are calling upon.Check out our latest MLB predictions. read more

Draymond Green Is Better Than Ever On Defense

Much like the regular season that preceded it, this NBA postseason has been marked by some eye-popping individual performances. As he tries to reach the NBA Finals for the seventh-straight year, LeBron James has been phenomenal, even by his own ridiculous standards. Meanwhile, point guards Isaiah Thomas and John Wall have been throwing haymakers at one another for the right to face James and the Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference Finals.But perhaps no star has raised the level of his game in the postseason as much as Golden State’s Draymond Green. Yes, he was great on offense in Game 4, recording a triple-double as his team finished a sweep of the Jazz1He averaged 16 points, nearly nine rebounds and seven assists for the series.. But it was his defense — both in this series and all postseason — that made his performance as special, if not more so, as Stephen Curry’s or Kevin Durant’s.Utah scored a meager 95 points per 100 plays with Green on the floor (down from 105 points per 100 with Green on the sidelines), connecting on just 52 percent of its shots inside of five feet with Green on the court (down from a respectable 61 percent with him on the bench), according to NBA.com. But Green’s raw defensive numbers in the series weren’t the real surprise — the Defensive Player of the Year frontrunner was statistically the best interior stopper in the NBA this season2Among players who played at least 50 games and defended three or more shots per game from close range — rather it was the emphatic way in which he repeatedly shut down the Jazz at the rim.On Monday night, Utah tried and failed to score on Green at the basket, shooting just 3 of 10 from close range with him nearby. You would have thought the Jazz had learned their lesson earlier in the series: In Game 2, they tried sneaking three alley-oops past Green, including two to Rudy Gobert, a skilled big and Defensive Player of the Year candidate in his own right. In all three instances, Green snuffed out the play.Video Playerhttps://fivethirtyeight.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/alleyoop1.mp400:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Video Playerhttps://fivethirtyeight.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/draymondswat.mp400:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Video Playerhttps://fivethirtyeight.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/greenswat2.mp400:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Those plays came on the heels of a series against Portland in which Green had a couple of similar rejections at the rim.Video Playerhttps://fivethirtyeight.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/greenrejection.mp400:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Video Playerhttps://fivethirtyeight.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/greenrejection2.mp400:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.In all, he’s blocked four dunk attempts in 283 minutes this postseason, the most in the league. It’s important to remember here that blocking the dunks of 7-foot-1-inch NBA players is about as hard as it sounds. During the regular season, players were successful on better than 90 percent of their dunk attempts, according to Basketball-Reference.com. To give Green’s postseason performance even greater context, consider this: In his entire career — five seasons and 10,627 regular-season minutes — he had four such blocks, according to ESPN Stats & Information Group. Block percentage is a rate estimate of how many 2-point shots a player blocks while he’s on the court.Source: Basketball-Reference.com 2014-152.92.5 2012-131.83.5 Draymond Green’s block rate usually increases during the playoffs 2013-143.04.5 SEASONREG. SEASONPLAYOFFS 2016-173.4%6.4% 2015-163.03.8 Blocked dunks are not only difficult to accumulate, players also run the risk of becoming a potential poster. “There’s definitely a sense of urgency, but it’s also [me] not caring if I get dunked on,” Green said when asked by FiveThirtyEight about his spike in blocked dunks. “Because every time you do it, you put yourself in that position. I like the reward we can reap from getting a block. That outweighs getting dunked on. The way I see it, it’s still just two points. I try to read what the offense is trying to do and be a step early, if I can.”Green, who’s averaging just under five blocks and steals a game combined this postseason, knows his aggressive approach is inevitably going to cause some embarrassment. And that was on display in Game 4 when Utah’s Derrick Favors got the best of him on one play.Video Playerhttps://fivethirtyeight.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/draymonddunkedon.mp400:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.But more important than a few blocked dunks, the Warriors rely heavily on Green’s instincts to read the opposing team’s offense. Many times, his ball denial or ability to close out on someone like Gordon Hayward forces the opponent to look elsewhere to get a shot; a huge accomplishment in the postseason, when teams learn which role players can handle the moment versus which ones can’t.Earlier in the series, acting Warriors coach Mike Brown was asked to compare or contrast Green’s defensive ability with that of Ben and Rasheed Wallace, from the mid-2000s Detroit Pistons teams. In his response, Brown praised Green, saying he was more versatile than those two while saying that Green took a similar leadership role in terms of how much he communicated with teammates on the court.“They anchored whatever defense they were a part of, and they did a lot of things that were kind of on the fly, that they felt,” Brown said. “That’s something Draymond does. I mean, he has carte blanche. Steve [Kerr] has empowered him since day one to quarterback the defense, and he does a heck of a job in that regard.”And as long as Green keeps improvising the way he has, it will be tough for anyone to challenge the Warriors.Check out our latest NBA predictions. read more
