The conviction order against the accused, Lalit D’Silva, was passed on the basis of sole testimony of the prosecutrix, Sales Executive at the Airlines, after the Court observed that her testimony had been “thoroughly consistent”. Metropolitan Magistrate Dev Saroha observed thus: “reliance can be placed on the sole testimony of the prosecutrix provided by her if testimony inspires confidence. In the present case the prosecutrix has been thoroughly consistent in her statement regarding the date on which the incident happened and how it happened from her statement given to police, in her statement under section 164 CrPC and her statement made before the Court while undergoing her examination in chief. The accused was given opportunity to cross examine the complainant and after a lengthy cross examination the complainant was able to stand her ground.” The complainant had accused Mr. Lalit of asking her inappropriate questions that intruded upon her privacy. Accordingly, an FIR was registered under Section 509 of IPC for outraging the modesty of a woman. The Court observed that there is no manner in which the “intention” of an accused to insult the modesty of a woman can be determined and the same has to be gathered from the act complained off. Reliance was placed on a Bombay High Court verdict in Prasad Shirodkar v. State. In the present case, the Court said, it is clear that the accused with intend to outrage the modesty of the complainant uttered the words complained of and just because there are no other witnesses to the incident the testimony of the complainant cannot be disbelieved. The accused had contested the testimony of the prosecutrix on to grounds: 1.She had changed the date of alleged incident in her statements2.There was a delay in lodging the FIR The Court did not entertain both these arguments and stated as follows: “Just because in her first complaint given to the company by mail dated 28.09.2011, she mentioned a different date of the alleged incident does not impact her unassailed testimony before the Court. …though delay in lodging FIR can entail serious consequences to the prosecution case, but if the delay has been satisfactorily explained then it does not casts clouds of suspicion upon the prosecution case.” Thus, the Court decided to proceed on the basis of sole testimony of the complainant. It added, “In the present case, the complainant has stated that immediately after the incident she made complaint to a number of her seniors and waited for an action to be taken against the accused, who is a senior employee of the company. She was throughly cross examined by the defence. She has further stated that only after realizing that no action will be taken against the accused she made a formal complaint. The complainant has been consistent in her explanation regarding delay and she being a woman in a social setting like ours is often subjected to many pressure in matters like these. In the present case, not only the social dignity of the complainant was on line but also there must be some professional considerations, the accused being a senior officer of the company and her boss. Thus, the explanation given by the complainant is believable.” The judgement was pronounced through video conferencing and the matter is now posted for hearing on quantum of sentence on November 17. The maximum punishment for the offence is three years jail term. Click Here To Download Order Read Order Next Storylast_img read more

Belá Fleck Says The Flecktones’ Future Is ‘An Open Book’

March 2, 2021 0 Comments

first_imgWith The Flecktones’ reunion tour all but imminent, the great banjoist Belá Fleck spoke about their motivation to reunite and what might come next. The new interview in JamBase touches upon Fleck’s many ongoing projects, mentioning work with Chick Corea, The Telluride Bluegrass Festival, his wife Abigail Washburn, and, of course, The Flecktones.Belá Fleck spoke about the reunion dates, explaining that it was his annual role at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival that brought them together.This lineup is a return to our original lineup: Victor Lemonte Wooten, Futureman and Howard Levy. We had planned on trying to get together in 2017, but somehow blocking a big time period wasn’t working for everyone, what with all the different projects and lives we now all have. So we scrapped the idea for that time. A little later Telluride Bluegrass Festival promoter Craig Ferguson got in touch to ask me what I wanted to do this year at the festival.I’ve played there every year since 1982, and I always try to bring something special. I knew that The Flecktones guys always loved coming to Telluride, so I thought, what about a much shorter commitment? Just a couple of weeks leading up to Telluride this time? I floated the idea, and it went over big. So we’re doing it. Who knows what it will lead to next.Of course, the follow-up question was about what it could lead to next. Fleck answers vaguely, but optimistically for fans who want to hear more.It’s an open book. We are all share a lot of history, and warmth towards each other. At a certain point we all felt ready for new challenges, and Flecktones had been the center of our musical lives for decades, so we decided to give it a break. Four years later, we’re starting to miss each other!It’s nice to hear that the band is as excited to play as we are to listen! The tour starts on June 1st, wrapping through the country and landing at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival on June 16th!last_img read more

MBB : Siva’s foul trouble, turnovers hurt Louisville in loss to Syracuse

September 17, 2020 0 Comments

first_img Published on February 13, 2012 at 12:00 pm Comments Facebook Twitter Google+center_img LOUISVILLE, Ky. — In a game that wasn’t decided until the final possession, the two biggest plays may have come in the first half.With Louisville holding a two-point lead 13 minutes into the game, junior guard Peyton Siva blew past the Syracuse defense all the way to the rim. He skied for a finish off the glass, but Orange center Fab Melo slid in front of him at the last moment to draw a charge.It was Siva’s second foul, but Louisville head coach Rick Pitino left him in the game. On SU’s ensuing possession, Siva was called for a reach-in near the 3-point line.And just like that, the best player on the floor for both teams to that point was relegated to the bench.‘I just picked up three stupid fouls that should never have happened,’ Siva said. ‘That was my fault. I took myself out of the game and really cost my teammates a lot.’AdvertisementThis is placeholder textWhen Siva left, he had a game-high eight points and was the only player who flashed any semblance of offensive prowess. He sat for the next 13 minutes of action and never quite reached the same level he was at to start the game as No. 19 Louisville (20-6, 8-5 Big East) ultimately fell to No. 2 Syracuse (26-1, 13-1 Big East) 52-51 Monday at the KFC Yum! Center. Siva didn’t score the rest of the way and committed a critical turnover late that led to the crushing loss.‘He was tough,’ SU junior guard Brandon Triche said. ‘Without him playing, the movement kind of slowed down. I don’t think he was able to use that confidence from earlier in the game in the last part.’In the early parts of the first half, Siva seemed to be playing at a different speed than everyone else on the court. He penetrated the Orange’s 2-3 zone at will, dishing off to teammates under the basket or taking it to the rim himself.He scored Louisville’s first four points of the game on two layups, but it was his first assist that showed off his quickness. He shook Dion Waiters with a crossover at the top of the key, dribbled to the free-throw line and bounced a pass to Chane Behanan under the basket for an easy dunk.‘He was a spark today, especially early,’ Triche said. ‘Our game plan was to let him shoot a few jump shots, and we basically did the opposite. We were playing off him, and he still was going by us. He was making passes to the big guys, getting them buckets.’He continued finding the Cardinals’ big men down low, and although they didn’t score directly off those feeds, many of those dishes resulted in trips to the free-throw line. And with both teams struggling mightily to put points on the board, Siva’s foul trouble and ensuing time on the bench completely changed the dynamic of the game.‘The way I was penetrating and finding people, it really hurt us,’ he said of his time on the sideline.Syracuse didn’t turn the game around when he was out, but by the time Siva returned, he seemed to have fallen out of the zone he was in to start the game. He did deal out three more assists in the second half but only took one shot after the break.‘He started out real good,’ SU guard Dion Waiters said. ‘But it’s all about the finish, though.’And Siva’s finish was nowhere near the caliber of his start.With the clock ticking less than 30 seconds, the Cardinals turned to Siva to deliver the win. Just as he had multiple times in the first half, he drove into the heart of the Orange zone. As the defense collapsed, he said he thought he saw Gorgui Dieng wide open under the basket. He tried to wrap a pass around a defender, but it zipped slightly behind the center and Waiters picked it off.Louisville had one final chance after Waiters missed his free throw, but the Cardinals never got a shot off.And although he may have been the best player on the court when he was out there, Siva couldn’t help but take the blame following the loss.‘I’ve just got to play a lot smarter,’ Siva said. ‘I made some dumb decisions down the stretch, and I really wasn’t aggressive down the stretch where I should have been. I’ve got to learn from it and come back and play.’[email protected]last_img read more

Due to winter weather conditions there is still a huge shortage in many parts of the country, including Michigan.Since December 1st, about 300 blood drives across 27 states have been forced to cancel due to the winter weather.Resulting in more than 10,500 blood donations going uncollected.“The Red Cross typically sees blood donations decline during the winter months, November, December and on into January and February. Blood donations will often take a back seat. When you cup hold that from severe weather, we here in Michigan are certainly familiar with we often see blood drives being cancelled due to a lot of snow maybe icy conditions that sort of thing. And then we get into the January, February and now we start to deal with flu season and our donors know that if they aren’t feeling well, or maybe have some symptoms that they wait and donate when they feel better. So you got a cup hold of all those things together and we see ourselves with a decline in donations,” Todd Kulman said.If you would like to help end the blood shortage there are some upcoming blood drives coming to the area.Upcoming Blood Donation Sites:Alcona:Lincoln 2/15/17: 12pm- 5:45pm, Lincoln Senior Center, 207 S.
