arrested on 12 February Umar Khalid and Anirban Bhattacharya surrendered to Delhi Police 23 February All these JNU students are charged with sedition based on what they allegedly shouted out on the evening of 9 February The Delhi Police mentions an airing of a Zee News report as the first point of evidence but a Zee News producer has quite saying that no such anti-national slogans were in the original video That the original video which formed the basis of the entire #JNURow and sedition charge was doctored is now out and the status report appended here has no details on the specifics Delhi Police went on record saying they have proof that goes beyond the "doctored" video of Zee News but that proof does not show up in the status report Meanhwile the Delhi High Court continues to postpone the bail plea hearing of JNU student leader Kanhaiya Kumar now for the second time in a week Kumar is currently in judicial custody till March 2 Under the Code of Criminal Procedure the police can seek custody for up to 14 days after arrest For two weeks judicial custody and police custody can be exchanged He was previously placed in police custody for three days and then another two days after his arrest on February 12 Kanhaiya Kumar Bail Application The Delhi High Court on Wednesday adjourned Kumar’s bail plea till February 29 after Delhi Police said it will seek his fresh remand to "unearth any larger conspiracy" Additional Solicitor General (ASG) Tushar Mehta appearing for Delhi Police told Justice Pratibha Rani that they were moving a remand application to seek Kanhaiya’s police custody for the third time to confront him with fellow Jawaharlal Nehru University students Umar Khalid and Anirban Bhattacharya who surrendered on Tuesday night Mehta said the police remand of Kanhaiya who is currently in judicial custody till March 2 is required to confront him with Khalid and Anirban and "unearth any larger conspiracy" The court deferred the hearing till February 29 after Kanhaiya’s advocates Kapil Sibal and Rebecca John asked the court to postpone the hearing as they will oppose the police remand application "Since two JNU students surrendered last (Tuesday) night we need to confront them with Kanhaiya" ASG Mehta said Allowing police to move the remand application before the concerned court Justice Pratibha Rani said: "We have to ensure that they don’t suffer any scratch that’s my only concern" Delhi Police opposed the bail plea of Kanhaiya and submitted a status report to the court If Kanhaiya is released on bail "he may create law and order problems by conducting meetings in his support hampering arrest of other accused people" said police Kanhaiya "did not cooperate at all during the course of the interrogation" they said The report also said Delhi Police was looking into the "linkage between Kanhaiya and some foreign elements with their mouths covered" who were present during the February 9 event at the university Kanhaiya was arrested in a sedition case on February 12 after the event held on the university campus against the execution of parliament attack convict Afzal Guru He allegedly shouted anti-India slogans at the event Khalid and Anirban along with three others had gone missing from the JNU campus since February 12 when Kanhaiya was arrested They surrendered on Tuesday night The police report said Kanhaiya if released on bail "may influence the witnesses and also hamper the investigation" "It would send a wrong signal to the students community across the country that such anti-India activities can be conducted with immunity" "He (Kanhaiya) may become the rallying point to encourage such anti-India movements which would not only spread disaffection but would also be contemptuous since the conviction recorded by the Supreme Court is being termed judicial killing" the report stated Delhi Police further said: "It is an open secret that the aforesaid conduct of holding an event on February 9 has not only ramifications within India it has an international impact as well" During the hearing Justice Pratibha Rani made it clear that police have the statutory right to seek remand of Kanhaiya till February 27 An accused may be held in police custody for a period of normally not more than 14 days As Kanhaiya was arrested on February 12 Delhi Police has the statutory right to seek remand before the expiry of the 14-day period police said ASG Mehta told the court that Delhi Police will ensure safety of lawyers and the accused in the case Security was beefed up inside and outside the court room during the hearing The entry to the courtroom of Justice Pratibha Rani was restricted to lawyers involved in the case and a few media persons The high court posted the matter for February 29 With IANS Washington: Republican presidential front runner Donald Trump has announced to appoint a top American Senator as head of his national security team In a statement Trump said Jeff Sessions who has advised him on issues such as trade and immigration will serve as his National Security Advisory Committee File photo of Jeff Sessions and Donald Trump AP "It is an honour to have Jeff as a member of the team I have such great respect for him and I look forward to working with him on the issues most important to Americans" Trump said on Thursday The announcement came hours after he was blasted by top Republican national security experts who said that they were opposed to his presidency as his vision of American influence and power in the world is wildly inconsistent in principle Sessions who has been on the Armed Services Committee for almost 20 years and is Chairman of the Strategic Forces Subcommittee had endorsed him over the weekend "Trump and the American people know our country needs a clear-eyed foreign policy rooted in the national interest We need to understand the limits of our ability to intervene successfully in other nations It is time for a healthy dose of foreign policy realism" said Sessions "In the Middle East this means forming partnerships based on shared interests not merely overthrowing regimes in the dangerous attempt to plant democracies We must also combat the refugee crisis by creating regional safe zones rather than depopulating the region by migration" he said "The only path to long-term stability and resolution of this humanitarian crisis for the United States and our European allies is to work towards the safe return of migrants to their home countries as Trump has noted This strategy will also protect our own national security" said Sessions Earlier in an open letter 95 members of the Republican national security community slammed Trump on his national security alleging that his advocacy for aggressively waging trade wars is a recipe for economic disaster in a globally connected world and that his embrace of the expansive use of torture is inexcusable "His hateful anti-Muslim rhetoric undercuts the seriousness of combating Islamic radicalism by alienating partners in the Islamic world making significant contributions to the effort Furthermore it endangers the safety and Constitutionally guaranteed freedoms of American Muslims" they said in an open letter "Controlling our border and preventing illegal immigration is a serious issue but his insistence that Mexico will fund a wall on the southern border inflames unhelpful passions and rests on an utter misreading of and contempt for our southern neighbour" they said "Similarly his insistence that close allies such as Japan must pay vast sums for protection is the sentiment of a racketeer not the leader of the alliances that have served us so well since World War II" the letter said "His admiration for foreign dictators such as Vladimir Putin is unacceptable for the leader of the world’s greatest democracy He is fundamentally dishonest" the letter said PTI Tokyo:Bipartisan lawmakers in Japan will convene on Tuesday and are widely expected to adopt a resolution protesting the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea’s (DPRK) launch of a long range rocket on Sunday Both ruling and opposition party representatives confirmed on Monday that a plenary session of each of Japan’s parliamentary caucuses will convene Tuesday to adopt the resolution Xinhua reported A television store plays the live coverage of the rocket launch in North Korea AP Both political camps including the ruling Liberal Democratic Party of Japan (LDP) and the main opposition Democratic Party of Japan (DPJ) have issued statements condemning the DPRK’s launch as being in violation of UN Security Council resolutions as well as its nuclear test last month as being a threat to global security Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is pushing for the government here to swiftly move to tighten sanctions on Pyongyang in the wake of the launch possibly ahead of new punitive measures that might be adopted by the UN Security Council Japan has officially lodged a protest against the DPRK’s launch of what it has said was an earth observation satellite but believed by Japan and others to be a test of ballistic missile technology through its diplomatic channels in Beijing The DPRK is banned from test-firing any rockets based on a ballistic missile technology under UN Security Council resolutions and such a test has not been conducted since 2012 IANS This story was earlier published on January 19 2012 but is being republished in light of the Moga tragedy It is a do-or-die election for Punjab Chief Minister Prakash Singh Badal and his son and Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal The past shows that electorates in Punjab usually throw out incumbents But Sukhbir Singh Badal of the ruling Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) desperately requires to change this trend Reason: Like the Karunanidhi’s family in Tamil Nadu and YS Rajasekhara Reddy’s family in Andhra Pradesh the Badals are under cloud for amassing wealth disproportionate to their income Among other things they have been accused of using their political clout to further their business interests an accusation which they aggressively deny The Akali Dal swept back into power in March 2007 Since then the aging father Prakash Singh Badal has more or less transferred all his shares in Orbit Resorts Pvt Ltd to his son Sukhbir Singh Badal Sukhbir Singh’s Orbit Resorts constructed a multi-crore hotel building (Oberoi runs a hotel here) on a nine-acre plot in Gurgaon which is part of the Delhi National Capital Region (NCR) His father-in-law Satyajit Singh Majithia launched Orbit Aviation Pvt Ltd in which Sukhbir’s Orbit Resorts Pvt Ltd acquired equity shares Sukhbir also acquired stakes in leading transport companies running deluxe luxury buses which were issued permits by the Akali Dal government in Punjab And Sukhbir and his family acquired a news channel and two entertainment channels All this has happened in five years – between 2007 and 2012 Documents available with Firstpost indicate that there could be a conflict of interest in the Badals running the government and their private businesses Sukhbir Singh says he resigned from the directorship of Orbit Resorts in 2009 But his wife Harsimrat Kaur in managing director and there are other family members on the board He also denies having any links with transport companies as of today but Firstpost has documents showing all the transport companies as having something to do with Orbit Resorts and only an independent investigation can reveal their intricate cross-connections Punjab’s father-son chief minister-deputy chief ministerduo have been accused of using their political clout to further their business interests an accusation which they aggressively deny AFP First a brief background on Sukhbir Singh’s business Sukhbir Siingh’s Orbit Resorts got an impetus as far back as 1989 when the Haryana government allotted a prime 17-acre industrial plot for a hotel in Gurgaon Sukhbir Singh was appointed director of Orbit Resorts in 1988 when the Akali Dal was in power in Punjab Several eyebrows were raised against the allotment given under the state’s tourism policy To date no Haryana government has allotted such a huge plot on the pretext of promoting tourism in Gurgaon The plot allotment was cancelled once and remained entangled in legal battles till 2000 The Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) had also flagged the issue in 2002 which had estimated losses at Rs 600 crore to the state exchequer After a lot of legal and political drama the Om Prakash Chautala government restored the plot to Orbit Resorts to Sukhbir Badal who was then a member of Parliament In 2003 when the Congress replaced the Akali Dal in Punjab Prakash Singh Badal was slapped with a case of disproportionate assets He was arrested for a brief period but at that time he had shrugged it off as ‘vendetta’ politics His son and Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal faces a similar situation today He recently escaped action when a Chandigarh-based lawyer barrister Himmat Singh Shergill filed a public interest litigation (PIL) with the Punjab and Haryana High Court in October 2011 pleading that the court should order a CBI enquiry into allegations of corruption against Prakash and Sukhbir Singh Badal Himmat Singh’s PIL was based on a series of reports on transport that had been published in a leading local English daily The Tribune The high court directed Sukhbir and Prakash Singh to file their replies to the PIL The court however declined to entertain the petition on the ground that the petitioner should first approach the investigating agency by filing an FIR instead of seeking orders from the court directly by means of a PIL Barrister Shergill is in the process of filing an FIR with the Punjab’s vigilance police The month of June 2007 (just three months after the Akali Dal came back to power) seems to have been quite auspicious for the Badals as they opened several fronts during this month Orbit Resorts started the construction of a multi-storeyed building on the remaining nine-acre plot in Gurgaon In less than four years the building was commissioned to run as Oberoi Hotel Gurgaon A deluxe luxury suite 5136 on the fifth floor of the hotel remains booked for Sukhbir Singh whenever he comes to Delhi NCR Sukhbir Singh says he resigned from the directorship of Orbit Resorts in 2009 But his wife Harsimrat Kaur in managing director and there are other family members on the boardNaresh Sharma/Firstpost In his reply to the high court however Sukhbir Singh said that Orbit Resorts obtained a loan of Rs 274 crore from Punjab National Bank and Punjab and Sind Bank for the construction of the hotel in June 2007 He admits that the project cost was pegged at Rs 373 crore But the rest of the expenses were met through equity/internal profits/sale of assets he claimed In the same month (29 June 2007) Sukhbir Singh’s father-in-law Satyajit Singh Majithia launched Orbit Aviation Pvt Ltd for providing air ambulance and air taxi services Besides Satyajit his son Gurmeher Singh Majithia is the director of Orbit Aviation According to documents available with Firstpost other shareholders of the company are Satyajit Singh Majithia’s wife Sukhmanjus Majithia and Sukhbir Singh Badal’s Orbit Resorts Satyajit Singh Majithia was also one of the directors in Orbit Resorts In the same year (2007) Orbit Aviation acquired its first aircraft – a brand new Cessna Citation CJ2+ a very popular aircraft based at IGI Airport New Delhi In May 2011 it added another aircraft – a Super King Air B-200 with Cargo Doors that can carry two in-line lifeport stretcher systems Satyajit Singh Majithia an ex-commercial pilot established Orbit Aviation as a sister concern of Saraya Aviation Pvt Ltd incorporated in 1992 Satyajit is Chairman of Saraya Aviation According to Saraya Aviation’s website they have three aircraft including two purchased by Orbit Aviation This means Saraya Aviation had been maintaining only one aircraft for nearly 15 years since 1992 But courtesy Orbit Aviation they added two more to the fleet in the past five years In the transport sector Sukhbir Singh and his family are alleged to have interests in three big transport companies running deluxe luxury buses on Punjab government permits These companies are Orbit Transport Baaz Transport and Dabwali Transport On 19 September 2007 the Akali Dal government approved a new transport policy It opened the floodgates to the private sector The government issued permits for running super deluxe buses to several private companies Continues on the next page Two months later on 22 November 2007 the Akali Dal government relaxed its taxation structure for the transport sector For ordinary buses the tax was reduced from Rs 250 to Rs 225 per km per vehicle which means a 10 percent reduction in the tax For super deluxe buses the tax was reduced from Rs 750 to 50 paise that is a 93 percent reduction in taxes for the super deluxe buses Thus the cut in taxes for ordinary buses and super deluxe buses was not uniform and this resulted in heavy losses for the government’s transport companies – Punjab Roadways and Pepsu Road Transport Corporation (PRTC) A majority of government buses are ordinary ones while private transport companies with super deluxe bus permits registered very good profits The balance-sheets of Dabwali Transport and Real Estate Pvt Ltd reveal that during the 2007-2008 financial year the company’s turnover was Rs 1247 crore There was a near three-fold increase in the turnover (Rs 2907 crore) by 2010-2011 After taxes Dabwali Transport’s profit was Rs 117 crore in 2007-2008 and Rs 423 crore in 2010-2011 Sukhbir Singh in his reply to the high court said that he was neither an MLA nor deputy CM in 2007 when the transport policy was formed He was appointed deputy CM only in 2009 But his father Prakash Singh Badal was the chief minister in 2007 and Sukhbir Singh an office-bearer of the Akali Dal party Sukhbir Singh’s Orbit Resorts started the construction of a multi-storeyed building in Gurgaon In less than four years the building was commissioned to run as Oberoi Hotel GurgaonNaresh Sharma/Firstpost Sukhbir Singh admitted that he took over as managing director of Dabwali Transport Company Ltd in 1990 though he is no longer its director He however remains a majority shareholder in the company "Right from March 1994 onwards the company has been purchasing shares of Orbit Resorts Pvt Ltd as a strategic investment” Sukhbir Singh said in his court reply On Orbit Transporters Sukhbir Singh said it was started in 1990 and he "continued intermittently a partner" in this company He is no longer a partner in this firm he claimed In Baaz Transporters Pvt Ltd Sukhbir Singh was a director since its inception in 1988 Later it merged with Falcon Properties Pvt Ltd In 2009 when he took over as deputy CM he resigned from the directorship He holds shares in the company but Sukhbir Singh claimed Baaz Transporters or Falcon Properties were never issued any transport permit by the government Barrister Himmat Singh Shergill however had a different story to tell Firstpost: "Baaz Transporters are defaulting in filing annual returns and balance-sheets for the past three financial years since 2007-2008 So we really don’t know their physical and financial structure We don’t know how many buses Baaz owns" Also a local TV news channel – Day and Night – found out through a Right to Information Act query that several buses were plying illegally in the state The news channel obtained the list of persons who were allotted bus permits "We at random visited three persons and found that they were not even aware that super deluxe buses were running in their names They were so poor Their houses were dingy and they were supposed to be owners of super deluxe luxury buses worth lakhs of rupees” says the news channel’s Managing Editor Kanwar Sandhu According to documents all the three transport companies – Orbit Baaz and Dabwali – were shareholders in Orbit Resorts along with Prakash Singh Badal Sukhbir Singh Badal Harsimrat Kaur (Sukhbir’s wife) Bikram Singh Majithia (Sukhbir’s brother-in-law) Praneet Kaur Kairon (Sukhbir’s sister) Satyajit Singh Majithia and Sukhmanjus Majithia But in April 2010 Orbit Transporters’ shares in Orbit Resorts were transferred to Sukhbir Singh In his declaration while filing election papers from the Jalalabad assembly constituency in Ferozepur district Sukhbir Singh Badal showed his assets and income as Rs 76 crore His wife and Bhatinda MP Harsimrat Kaur Badal’s assets were worth Rs 390 crore which mainly consisted of jewellery Sukhbir Singh had cash of Rs 5 lakh and deposits of Rs 31 lakh while his wife had only Rs 250 lakh cash Sukhbir had bonds and debentures worth Rs 24 crore and land in Punjab Chandigarh Haryana and Rajasthan The directors’ report of Orbit Resorts for the year ending 31 March 2010 shows 44-year-old Harsimrat Kaur a graduate with eight years of experience earning Rs 36 crore annually The conflict of interest is apparent between the political Badal family which runs the Punjab government and the Badal business interests Coming next: The Badals’ media interests
