Ramasubramaniun stated that the Bombay High Court would be an appropriate forum to approach in terms of the averments sought in the plea.”In a criminal case connected to this issue (Sushant Singh Rajput Death Case), your lordship has directed a CBI inquiry,” said the Counsel for the petitioner when the matter came up for hearing.At this juncture, CJI Bobde told the Counsel to approach Bombay HC. “You might be having a case, but what is the problem in approaching the Bombay HC? They know all officers and they have evidences. Come here if you have a problem.”, he remarked.In this backdrop, the petitioner withdrew the petition whereby the top Court granted him liberty to approach the Bombay High CourtOn the last two occasions, no counsel had appeared in the instant PIL as a result of which CJI Bobde had posted the matter for hearing to today.He had then remarked, “Tell Mr. Dhanda in the meanwhile to consider going to the Bombay HC Instead”.Filed by Puneet Kaur Dhanda, through Advocate Dr Sushil Balwada, the PIL has urged the Court to seek records pertaining to investigation from Mumbai Police into the alleged suicide of Disha Salian.Dhanda has stated that when the Bihar Police sought to investigate the Disha Salian angle in the Sushant Singh Rajput case, Mumbai Police had allegedly told the former that the case records pertaining to Salian were deleted by mistake.Further to this, when the Bihar Police sought to help, Mumbai Police did not give access to the laptop in which files related to Salian’s investigation was stored. The petitioner has also drawn a nexus and link between the deaths of both Salian and Rajput while citing a news Article dated August 3.”…..news article clearly revealed the involvement of many celebrities in the death of Disha Salian and Mr Sushant Singh Rajput,” the plea reads.In this context, it is alleged that according to the report, “a star kid (who himself has done two movies) called Sushant’s ex-manager Ms Disha Salian to his penthouse for partying. Present in the party were few political personalities as well as some celebrities”.Alleging that the Salian was raped and molested at the party, the report has stated that immediately after the party Disha died under mysterious circumstances.The plea avers that after the party, Salian had called up Sushant Singh Rajput and had informed him about the rape. Rajput, after learning this, allegedly told his friends Sandeep Singh and Rhea Chakraborty everything. It was after learning that Sushant knew of what happened with Disha, the report suggests that Sandeep Singh informed and alerted the people involved in Salian’s case.”Since that day Mr Sushant Singh Rajput was getting death threats and he was also threatened of dire consequences if he opens his mouth to the cops or media. Sushant changed his SIM card 50 times between 9th June to 13th June. He was really scared for his life and would even sleep in his car out of fear.”The plea states that both Rajput and Salian died under suspicious circumstances and at the “peak of their successful professional career and as per the statements of witnesses they both were upset as some projects of them were sabotaged and taken back from them and some of the projects were not working out and many were getting cancelled or delayed.”Disha Salian died on June 8 after falling off the 14th floor of a residential building (Regent Galaxy) in Malad (West) Mumbai.At the time of the incident, Salian was with her fiancé Rohan Rai.A week later, on the morning of June 14, Sushant Singh Rajput allegedly committed suicide.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Cuomo Challenger Astorino Seizes on Corruption Panel Report

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Republican gubernatorial challenger Rob Astorino, who has struggled mightily to chip away at Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s massive lead in the polls, may have finally found a chink in the governor’s armor—the governor’s own public corruption investigatory panel tasked with cleaning up Albany.An explosive new report published in The New York Times Wednesday details how Cuomo’s close associates intervened whenever the panel of prosecutors—known as the Moreland Commission—began focusing on groups politically linked to Cuomo, even to the point of demanding that subpoenas be withdrawn.The Times detailed the actions of Lawrence Schwartz, one of Cuomo’s senior aides, and Regina Calcaterra, the commission’s executive director and a former Suffolk County chief deputy county executive under Steve Bellone.The commissioners believed, according to the Times, that Calcaterra was updating the governor’s office in real-time during their meetings, and was directly involved in quashing subpoenas.Her meddling apparently became so intrusive that Nassau County District Attorney Kathleen Rice, one of the co-chairs, wanted Calcaterra replaced, the Times reported. Rice stepped down after announcing her bid for Congress.Astorino, the Westchester County Executive, is using the report as a lifeline to keep his struggling campaign above water. He wasted no time attacking Cuomo in a conference call with reporters. He accused the governor of breaking the law and went so far as calling him the “most corrupt governor in history.”When asked what laws he believes Cuomo actually violated, Astorino responded: “obstruction of justice.” Pressed further for specific charges, he didn’t elaborate.“This is obviously very serious,” Astorino said over the phone from Aspen, where he’d just flown in for the Republican Governors Association’s executive meeting, armed with a copy of the Times he brought with him.“It’s likely, a strong likelihood, that it will result in criminal charges,” he said. “Andrew Cuomo has a lot of questions to answer.“The people of New York, I think, are absolutely tired of scandal and corruption in Albany,” he added. “It’s galling that a man who rode in promising to be the White Knight is actually knee-deep in scandal right now.”Astorino fired off several questions aimed at the governor, including: Who gave Regina Calcaterra the authority to interfere with the subpoenas and investigations? Who in the Cuomo administration has been subpoenaed? How many subpoenas were squashed by the governor’s office?Astorino also challenged Cuomo to release all emails and BlackBerry messages related to the Moreland Commission’s investigation.His heated rebuke of Cuomo comes only two days after a Siena College poll had him trailing the governor by 37 points.Astorino’s problem? Many voters simply don’t know who he is, according to pollsters.“Astorino has failed to become significantly more known to voters or to put a dent in the Cuomo armor in the last six months,” Siena College pollster Steven Greenberg said when the poll was released. “He has much to do and not much time to do it in.”It may not be for a lack of trying, however.Astorino has criticized Cuomo’s response to Superstorm Sandy, noting that thousands of Sandy victims still aren’t in their homes, and for using federal Sandy relief money to fund state tourism advertisements in hurricane-devastated areas.Gov. Andrew Cuomo giving a speech in Huntington. (Spencer Rumsey/Long Island Press)He said that Cuomo’s lead in the polls is “based on a big lie.”There’s also the issue of money, or lack thereof in Astorino’s war chest. According to the latest filings, Cuomo had $35 million on hand; Astorino, $2.4 million.Cuomo has not publicly addressed the Times’ report or issued any statements. But his office did release a press release Wednesday announcing $175 million for localities to pay for post-Sandy storm repairs, $145 million of which is going to Nassau and Suffolk counties.Astorino called on Cuomo to address the public, saying the governor should come clean about “what he knew, what he ordered, what he approved.”He also urged the U.S. Attorney in Manhattan, Preet Bharara, to continue his investigation into the commission.Bharara “needs to do his job efficiently and he also needs to do it expeditiously,” Astorino said, preferably before Election Day “so the public can feel they can make an honest evaluation of the candidates.”In a 13-page response to the Times, the governor’s office defended Cuomo’s actions.“A commission appointed by and staffed by the executive cannot investigate the executive,” his office reportedly said. “It is a pure conflict of interest and would not pass the laugh test.”But, the Times reported, “The governor’s office interfered with the commission when it was looking into groups that were politically close to him. In fact, the commission never tried to investigate his administration.”The commission, which was formed July 2, 2013, was unceremoniously disbanded last March—10 months sooner than expected when Cuomo announced its formation.last_img read more

Sharks react to Taylor Hall trade to Arizona Coyotes

first_imgSAN JOSE — Coach Bob Boughner is as familiar with Taylor Hall as anyone in the Sharks organization.The two won Memorial Cup championships together in 2009 and 2010 when Boughner was the coach of the Windsor Spitfires and Hall was an elite talent about to become the NHL’s No. 1 overall draft pick.“He’s a guy that if you give him space, he’s going to make you pay with his speed,” Boughner said. “It’s all about working above, good gap by our defensemen and just taking that space away in the …last_img

Report: Digital Music Sales Will Surpass CDs in 2012

first_imgBy now – the beginning of a new decade and well into the 21st century – it’s a story we’ve long come accustomed to: the music industry is dying a slow, painful, sputtering death at the hands of the Internet.According to analyst firm Forrester’s latest report, 2009 was “a lousy end to an even lousier decade” for the music industry and we shouldn’t expect much different until at least 2013. Last year, as a matter of fact, was one of the worst years yet, with a 13% decline from the year before.For much of the report, the numbers only confirm what we’ve already come to expect over the past decade. Music industry revenues in 2009 were $6.3 billion, less than half what they were in 1999, and people spent 32% less in 2009 on music than they spent in 2008. Of course the economy can’t be helping these numbers, but Forrester sees this as a trend that is going to continue until it gradually starts to even out in 2013. By 2014, the company predicts music industry revenue to level off at around $5.5 billion with digital sales taking up most, but not all, of the slack. mike melanson Related Posts A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… The report also has one interesting event to note for 2012 and, no, it isn’t the destruction of the world at the hands of a Mayan death clock – digital music sales will finally surpass sales of physical media like CDs and vinyl.While it goes on to say that 2010 will be a better year than 2009 for the growth rate of spending on digital music, the overall numbers will likely trend downwards after that, as shown in the graph above.

Simeone left with ‘bitter taste’ after derby draw

first_imgAtletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone was left frustrated with VAR after Casemiro was not penalised for appearing to handle the ball in the penalty area during Saturday’s 0-0 draw at Real Madrid.Simeone’s side claimed a deserved point at the Santiago Bernabeu, but things could have been even better had they been given a first-half penalty for an apparent handball.Filipe Luis picked out the run of Koke in the 31st minute and the Spain international’s subsequent cross was blocked by Casemiro, with the ball striking his arm.

Zlatan wasn’t even the best player in LA! Despite VAR being available in La Liga this season, the incident was not reviewed and Atletico were denied a great opportunity to take the lead, leaving Simeone irritated.”What do you want me to say,” Simeone said in his post-match news conference.”There are four of them [officials] for VAR up there, four [officials] down [on the ground]. They can make mistakes, as they were all wrong.”I guess they did not stop the play because they saw it in a normal play, because it’s interpretable.”Last year with [Samuel] Umtiti [against Barcelona] the same thing happened, they said it was involuntary, but what do you want me to say?
