Photo) Top News In orderto ensure that nearly 22 lakh policemen across Maharashtra have a roof over their heads after retirement the state has increased the housing loan amount for policemen from Rs 200 crore to Rs 1500 crore The Maharashtra State Police Housing and Welfare Corporation (MSPHWC) will seek this loan from banks and disburse it among policemen who need loan to build houses There is a huge demand for housing loans from police officers before the office of the director general with around 7500 such applications currently pending The police are hoping the waiting list will be brought down by increasing the amount available for loan disbursement A senior IPS officer said “The state government has decided to raise the amount of loan available for policemen from Rs 200 crore to Rs 1500 crore A Government Resolution (GR) to this effect has been passed We are in talks with the banks and should be able to start disbursing this loan amount from next month onwards” He added: “With more people availing of these loans the amount collected through the monthly installments will increase This money can then be put back in the system to approve some more loans After some time this cycle should be able to take care of most loan applications” Currently government quarters are available to most policemen while they are in service They however have to vacate the houses on retirement “Several policemen especially those in the lower rung are known to struggle to purchase a house” an officer said Of the 22 lakh police officers across the state nearly 191 lakh are lower rung employees who find it difficult to obtain bank loans The officer explained that apart from the comparatively hassle-free procedure for getting loan approved from the MSPHWC the rate of interest on these loans would be lower than the market rates “Normally the way banks collect loans is they first cover up the interest amount with the installments that are paid This leads to there being no reduction in the principal amount for longer period” the officer said “In our case however we start covering up the principal amount against the installments paid by the policeman This in turn brings down the interest rate and reduces the period in which the loan amount is paid off” the officer explained Police housing has been a major issue in Maharashtra with there being complaints that even government quarters assigned to policemen in service being in dilapidated condition “Several of these quarters are being refurbished with new quarters like the one in Worli being constructed in the past two years” an officer said In 2015 Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis had said police housing was a priority for him and the state was planning to build nearly 5 lakh houses across the state by 2019 for police personnel For all the latest Mumbai News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Maja Daruwala | Updated: February 9 2016 12:01 am Related News There are many ways to interpret the video footage of the recent brutal police beating of protesters in Delhi The first and most charitable version is that the police were faced with hoards of rioters bent on arson and loot and had no choice but to defend life and property as is their solemn duty But it didn’t look like that It looked more like they were facing-off with a bunch of adolescents intent on slight defiance noisy sloganeering and breaking a couple of makeshift barriers to get themselves noticed Still perhaps there is more to the story than what we saw Perhaps there was a rampaging mob off-camera and in fear of their lives the police — being only human — turned to defend themselves But repeated views of the video clip show no sign of brickbatting nor weaponry Perhaps the police anticipated utter disorder or its threat and being tense and on edge reacted badly in the face of sudden onslaught But you reason had there been any forewarning of a breach of the peace they would already have been in riot gear poised for collective action But what we saw was not controlled defence of the realm but savage individual aggression Quite likely the little protest was unauthorised and the crowd a bit unruly The police would then have felt justified in asking it to disperse A protest authorised or spontaneous may be dispersed through a series of carefully calibrated steps The use of force is the very last step when all else has failed The law says that the police can use — can only use — minimum and proportionate force to disperse a crowd Whatever the police do must be reasonable They have a duty to make sure things remain peaceful On the other hand they have a duty to facilitate citizens in exercising their fundamental right to hold peaceful public meetings The heavy and individualised blows rained down upon the young lads and their companions seem to suggest that the police wanted to punish them Yet another explanation for the force seen in the video could be that the police are innocent of any knowledge of how to control crowds are not trained to be reasonable and restrained but do know how to follow orders wherever they come from and are willing to obey them however dodgy they may be That brings up the thought that there were orders from someone — corner these boys and girls and teach them a lesson It could be that they were passionately protecting some precious national treasure but it was really only the RSS office Finally it could be that the police were viciously aggressive for no other reason than that they are the police despise the public and fear no consequence for abuse of power History is on their side on this Will the students or the parents of these young ones protest sue file complaints with the myriad oversight bodies that have been set up Will the police chief act to punish to correct to publicly pull up his area commander and acknowledge there has been wrongdoing Or will ranks close again Will we ever know who the two public-spirited individuals who so enthusiastically helped the police pummel their victims were Will the Human Rights Commission bestir itself to assist and protect the victims and uphold the right to associate assemble and give expression to dissent Will the State Security Commission which includes the chief minister now convene its long overdue meetings with any sense of urgency and lay down policy and performance criteria for the police about how Delhi should be policed Will Parliament and its committees demand to know why students were so badly mauled Will the Supreme Court now be tempted into vivifying its now 10-year-old directions to the Central government and hold the administration in contempt for not moving seriously on the police reform agenda Don’t hold your breath for answers The

of Technology Lonavala were found brutally murdered in the forest area near Bhushi Dam a Special Investigation Team (SIT) of the Pune Rural Police claimed to have made a breakthrough on Sunday by identifying two suspects and arresting one of them Police said initial probe has revealed that the murder was a fallout of a robbery bid The dead bodies of the 22-year-old boy a final year mechanical engineering student from the institute and the 21-year-old girl who was in the final year computer engineering were found with their clothes stripped off on the afternoon of April 3 in the forest area between INS Shivaji and Air Force Station in Lonavala Both their bodies had severe injuries and the post-mortem report had said that the two had died due to severe blows of a blunt object on the head After the murder came to light the Pune Rural Police formed eight teams comprising 15 officers to probe the case In the first week of May Superintendent of Police (Pune Rural) Mohammed Suvez Haque had announced the formation of an SIT to probe into the case and a dedicated staff of 25 policemen and seven officers was assigned the investigation A reward of Rs 50000 was also announced in exchange for any information on the suspects Senior officers including Special Inspector General (Kolhapur Range) Vishwas Nangre Patil and Haque were monitoring the case on a daily basis Speaking to Newsline on Sunday Nangre Patil said “Based on the information developed professionally one person has been arrested while one more has been identified As the second person is yet to be arrested we are choosing not to divulge the names and other details But I can say that the arrested suspect had been booked in the past for petty offences of theft More details about the sequence of events leading to the incident will be shared after the arrest of the second suspect which we believe will happen very soon” Another police officer added that the victims had come to the area on the boy’s bike for an outing a day before the incident and are believed to have been attacked by the two suspects with an intention of the robbery “At this stage we believe that the suspects may have murdered the duo as they raised an alarm Though the post-mortem examination of the girl did not point to any sexual assault a possibility of an attempt to sexually assault her cannot be ruled out” the officer added As part of the probe the police said they have quizzed over 1500 people including those with a criminal record An analysis of the data of over one lakh phone calls was also done which helped in zeroing in on the culprits “We had prepared a comprehensive list of suspects in the beginning The person arrested was on the list since day one Our teams have questioned him three times but we could not get a breakthrough The fourth time however we could crack him He was in the police records and had been booked for petty thefts in the past” said Nangre Patil For all the latest Pune News download Indian

(Source: AP) Related News The boos hailed down from every part of the London Stadium As he knelt down in tears on the track 56000 voices jeered him unmercifully In the outside world within minutes his Wikipedia profile had become Justin “the Cheat” Gatlin In the history of sport you were forced to ponder had there ever been a champion more universally unloved than Gatlin the twice doping offender who by winning world 100 metres gold on Saturday had ruined one of sport’s great fairytale farewells It was supposed to be all about Usain Bolt The idea of the world’s greatest athlete not winning his final individual race was like Olivier fluffing his lines in his final Hamlet or Nureyev taking a tumble in his farewell performance of Swan Lake Unthinkable Yet what was really unimaginable the sport’s doomsday scenario almost was that as the sport’s spotless “saviour” was bowing out with his first defeat in any 100m final for four years it would be the much-maligned Gatlin who would cash in Only two years ago at the Beijing World Championships when Bolt outpaced Gatlin for the same title it was hailed almost as good prevailing over evil “He saved his title he saved his reputation he may have even saved his sport” screamed Steve Cram the former 1500 metres world record holder in the BBC commentary box So what had changed two years on In a world where drugs offenders are hardly thin on the ground the 35-year-old American is still the bete noire of the anti-doping lobby the man who has never shown any remorse and has thus received special opprobrium Yet hasn’t it reached almost farcical proportions On Friday night in the first round the stadium MC had noted amid all the cat-calling that the pantomime season was Christmas not in August No matter; Gatlin was already cast in stone as their villain STONY-FACED Yohan Blake who has also served a drugs ban was cheered to the rafters when he was introduced for the final but Gatlin just remained stony-faced through all the jeering He has long become used to it “I tuned it out” he said “I did what I had to do The people who love me are here cheering for me and my fellow countrymen are cheering at home” Of course not all Americans will have been but even Bolt recognised after Gatlin had won in 992 seconds just three-hundredths of a second ahead of him in the bronze medal position that this reception did not feel fair Indeed in this rarest of defeats we may have seen the real greatness of Bolt revealed in a way we had never witnessed before Yes the world has loved his once-in-a-century gift and his unmatched showmanship in all his triumphs They have shown him as a great winner Yet here he showed the world how to lose With grace and honour And yes forgiveness too Early in their career Gatlin had once tried to psyche out Bolt when racing in an adjacent lane by spitting in it So right from the start Bolt could have been forgiven for really having it in for the American Yet even when anti-Gatlin feeling was most rife in the sport a couple of years ago Bolt never sought to rub it in his foe’s face Who was the first man congratulate Gatlin on Saturday Of course it was the Jamaican who went over to hug him with a genuine embrace “The first thing he did was congratulate me and say that I didn’t deserve the boos” Gatlin revealed “He is an inspiration” Who could argue with his judgement Even as he contemplated such an anti-climactic end to his individual career Bolt was big enough to pay a tribute to Gatlin which swam against the tide of ill-feeling “He (Gatlin) is a great competitor You have to be at your best against him” Bolt said “I really appreciate competing against him and he is a good person” For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Related Newshas been
