निर्भया के दोषियों ने फांसी की सजा से बचने के लिए एक और नया हथकंडा आजमाया — जी हां दोस्तों, जैसा कि आप सभी जानते हैं, कि निर्भया गैंगरेप मामले में चारों दोषियों को 20 मार्च को फांसी दी जानी है, और इन चारों दोषियों ने फांसी की सजा से बचने के लिए एक और नया पैंतरा अजमाया है।
निर्भया गैंगरेप के चारों दोषी अक्षय, विनय, पवन और मुकेश फांसी से बचने के लिए हर तरह के हथकंडे आजमा रहे हैं, यहां तक कि कोर्ट मैं नए-नए तरीकों द्वारा फांसी की तारीख को टाला जा रहा है। निर्भया गैंगरेप के अब तीन दोषियों ने इंटरनेशनल कोर्ट ऑफ जस्टिस (आईसीजे) में याचिका दाखिल की है जिसमें इन इन तीनों दोषियों अक्षय, विनय, पवन तीनों ही दोषी फांसी की सजा से बचने के लिए हर वह तरीका आजमा रहे हैं, कि किसी तरह उनकी फांसी रुक जाए, यहां तक कि अब उन्होंने फांसी की सजा से बचने के लिए अपने परिवारजनों को भी मोहरा बना लिया है।
जहां एक तरफ निर्भया गैंगरेप के चार दोषियों में से तीन दोषियों ने अक्षय, विनय और पवन ने इंटरनेशनल कोर्ट ऑफ जस्टिस में अपनी याचिका फासी की सजा पर रोक लगाने के लिए डाली है। वहीं दूसरी तरफ इन तीनों दोषियों के परिवारजनों ने जिसमें उनके बुजुर्ग माता-पिता, भाई- बहन और बच्चे शामिल को भी शामिल कर लिया है, यह सभी फांसी की सजा को टालने के लिए हर नया अंतरा आजमा रहे हैं।
यहां तक कि अब इन तीनों दोषियों के परिवारजनों ने राष्ट्रपति रामनाथ कोविंद को हिंदी में पत्र लिखकर इच्छा मृत्यु की मांग की है, जिसमें इन लोगों ने इन तीनों दोषियों को फांसी की सजा से बचाने के लिए अपने बच्चों को भी मोहरा बना लिया है, और तो और इन्हें अपने किए पर कोई पछतावा भी नहीं हो रहा। इनका कहना है, कि देश में बड़े से बड़े महान पापी को माफ किया जा रहा है, यहां तक कि उन्होंने कहा कि देश में बड़े-बड़े पाप कर्म करने वाले पापी छूट रहे हैं, तो उनके बेटों को सिर्फ एक मुख्य दोषी मुकेश कि वजह से बाकी तीनों दोषियों को फांसी पर लटकाना कहां का न्याय है,
यहां तक कि उन्होंने अपने पत्र में राष्ट्रपति और पीड़िता के परिवारजनों से दोषियों को माफ करने का अनुरोध किया है, यहां तक कि उन्होंने यह तक कहा, कि अगर उन्हें फांसी ही देनी है, और फांसी देने से उनका बदला पूरा हो जाएगा, तो उससे पहले उन्हें इच्छामृत्यु दे दी जाए, उन्होंने पत्र में यहां तक लिखा है, कि ऐसा कोई अपराध नहीं, जिसे क्षमा नहीं किया जा सकता। यहां तक कि दोषियों के परिवारजनों ने पीड़िता के परिवार वालों से तीनों दोषियों को अक्षय, विनय, पवन को फांसी ना देने का अनुरोध किया है।
यहां तक कि दोषी के परिवारजनों का कहना है, कि मुकेश ने इन तीनों को गुमराह किया था। तो एक की वजह से चार फासी दी जाना कहां तक उचित है। आपको बता दें कि निर्भया गैंगरेप के मुख्य आरोपी मुकेश की याचिका को पहले ही सुप्रीम कोर्ट ने खारिज कर दिया था,
उसके बाद इन तीनों ने फांसी की सजा से बचने के लिए यह तीनों ही आप अपने परिवार को भी मोहरा बना रहे हैं, यहां तक कि ऐसा लगता है कि इतनी घिनौने कुकर्म के बावजूद भी यह कैसे समाज में जिंदा रहेंगे। क्या इन्हें अपने किए पर पछतावा है जो यह लोग फांसी की सजा को रुकवाने के लिए इतने सारे हथकंडे अजमा रहे हैं, भल्ला इतने घिनौने कुकर्म करने के बावजूद भी यह लोग कैसे जिंदा रह सकते हैं, और इनके परिवारजन कैसे इन दोषियों को फांसी की सजा से बचाने के लिए न्याय- प्रणाली के बीच में आ सकते हैं।
ऐसे ही नए-नए तरीके आजमा कर दोषी छूटने लगेंगे, तब भला क्या देश में किसी बेटी को इंसाफ मिल पाएगा? अब देखना यह है, कि क्या निर्भया को 20 मार्च को इंसाफ मिल पाएगा? क्या उसका परिवार 20 मार्च को अपनी बेटी को न्याय दिलवा पाएगा, या फिर एक बार फिर से इन सभी दोषीयों की नए-नए याचिका दाखिल करके फिर से इस फांसी को अगली तारीख के लिए टलवा दिया जाएगा। और देश की न्याय प्रणाली का इसी प्रकार यह दोषी ऐसे ही मजाक बनाते रहेंगे, और कब तक इस अंधे कानून का फायदा उठाते रहेंगे?

Roorkee Water Conclave 2020 begins at IIT Roorkee • IIT Roorkee is organizing this three-day conclave in association with NIH Roorkee • Experts from several countries like the USA, Spain, Germany, Japan, Netherlands, and UK are attending the conference. • The conclave aims at finding sustainable solutions to hydrologic challenges.
Roorkee: Indian Institute of Technology, Roorkee (IIT Roorkee) is organizing the Roorkee Water Conclave (RWC) in collaboration with National Institute of Hydrology, Roorkee (NIH Roorkee). RWC-2020, the first edition of this bi-annual event started today at IIT Roorkee. It would culminate on the 28th of February. The focus of the first edition of RWC-2020 is on “Hydrological Aspects of Climate Change”. Climate Change and the resultant impact on water resources is one of the most critical global environmental challenges. Various studies predict a rise in global temperature due to climate change over the next hundred years. This makes the issue all the more pertinent. The paucity of water resources is likely to have a global effect but countries in the nascent stage of development are likely to be impacted more due to climate change due to dependence of their economy’s on agriculture.
Shri R. K. Jain, Chairman, Central Water Commission, Ministry of Jalshakti, Department of Water Resources, River Development and Ganga Rejuvenation, Government of India, New Delhi was the Chief Guest of the Inaugural Event of the Conclave. Many dignitaries including the Director-General, NMCG, also graced the Conclave. Speaking about the government’s resolve on optimum utilization of water resources during the inaugural session, Shri R.K. Jain emphasized the problem of water resources management being faced in the country. He said, “India has about four percent of the world’s freshwater resources despite having only 2.4% land area making it a better-placed country on the global average. But due to the high population, temporal and excessive variability we are facing very high stress as far as water is concerned. The planning and projections of the past have failed miserably. We need to formulate new mechanisms to address the challenges that lie ahead in the wake of the impact of global warming on water resources.”
Prof. V P Singh, Distinguished Visiting Professor, IIT Roorkee and the Guest of Honour congratulated the chairman and co-chairman of the conclave and said, “This series will go a long way in contributing and sustaining the rich culture of excellence for which Roorkee has come to be known worldwide. The schedule and programs suggest a possibility of quite a few invigorating sessions and paper presentations which will present a great learning experience. This will prove to be beneficial for both the academicians and students, even I look forward to gaining from the stimulating sessions.” The inaugural session was followed by a plenary session-I which covered several topics related to water resource management. The session was chaired by Shri G Ashok Kumar, NWM and co-chaired by Shri R. K Pachauri, CWC. Er. R. K Jain was among the keynote speakers of this session and he gave an ‘Overview of Water Resources Management in India’. Professor Ramesh Kanwar spoke on Climate Change and Water Security: Policy Issues. The keynote session was followed by parallel technical sessions that dealt with various themes like Monitoring of Hydrological & Hydro-Meteorological data and its Management, Climate Change, Climatological Modelling & Prediction, Hydrological Modelling under Climate Change and Assessment of Water Resources and Climate Change. A special feature of RWC-2020 is an exhibition on the activities of the National Mission for Clean Ganga (NMCG) under the Namami Gange Program – a flagship program of the Government of India. NMCG is organizing a mega two-day exhibition for school students immediately after RWC i.e. on 29th Feb and 1st March 2020. This exhibition for school students would enhance the knowledge and understanding of budding future engineers and managers. Speaking on the sidelines of the event Dr. Sharad K. Jain, Director, NIH Roorkee said, “The anticipated global warming and its resultant impact on freshwater resources is a grave challenge that is expected to have a massive impact on the global populace. Deliberating and discussing strategies is of utmost importance considering the severity of the situation. In this conference, we would deliberate with researchers to come up with better solutions for water management.” Some reputed national and international agencies dealing with hydrological instrumentation are showcasing their products and services at the conclave. A large number of academicians and researchers, both from India and abroad, policymakers, field practitioners and NGOs, students, and other stakeholders are participating in the conclave. At the end of the first day’s proceedings a visibly delighted Prof. Ajit K. Chaturvedi, Director IIT Roorkee said, “The first day of RWC was focused on the theme and I am delighted that important keynotes were presented by some of the best experts from India and abroad. We hope that the upcoming days of the event would be equally productive and the fraternity would be benefitted by the deliberations.”

Himansh Kohli hails Mumbai cabinets decision to keep malls, multiplexes open 24X7
The Environment & Tourism Minister, Aditya Thackeray has recently approved a plan where Mumbai shopping malls, restaurants and multiplexes will remain open 24X7 from the end of the month. Film actor Himansh Kohli couldn’t be happier. “It’s a great initiative. Mumbai is famously known as the city which never sleeps and there needs to be shops open at all times. Different streams of work require people to work at different times of the day. So, this will suit everyone,” he says.
He adds, “In fact, I think it’s a great idea because a lot of times we get free from work late and then all the options available are expensive and require you to pay a premium amount for buying it after hours. This new step will increase employment, help in the growth of the economy and most of all, keep the area hustling-bustling i.e. making them safer. I’m sure other states will soon implement this new law.”
