Minister's son, kin booked for murder

The son of Health minister Anoop Mishra has been booked in the case of murder of Bhikam Kushwaha who was killed in Bel village near Gwalior.

Mishra's son Ashwini has been charged with murder. The minister's son Abhay, Ajay, cousin Deepak Vajpayee and brother-in-law Yogesh Sharma have also been booked in the case. The complaint was made by the deceased's brother.

The dispute was over the land near IPS college. One person was killed and four injured when the clash took a bloody turn. Ashwini and others fired at villagers. The land was given on lease for college. But the pathway to the village also fell under this land and this was cause of dispute.

The villagers had protested earlier also. On June 23 and 24, boundary wall was being constructed for college and villagers were asked to leave village, vacating their homes. The JCB machines had reached Belgaon and Vajpayee told villagers to leave their houses else they would face the consequences. Anup Mishra owns the IPS college.

BJP leader in Indore praised mafia don!

Leading Hindi newspaper Patrika made a disclosure about a state minister praising underworld don Dawood Ibrahim. The paper reports that the minister publicly praised the don for his 'management skills'.

Though it is possible that the minister unintentionally made the comment, most newspapers blacked it out. In Indore, Patrika is the leading Hindi newspaper in terms of circulation, followed by Dainik Bhaskar and Nai Dunia.

The paper was also in the news for publishing reports of land scams. The same BJP leader who is a cabinet minister in the state claimed that he was targeted and the reports were malicious and aimed to defame him.


Naxalites revive activities in Madhya Pradesh

After a lull, the Naxalites have again got active in Madhya Pradesh. The ultra-leftists burnt the JCB back-hoe loader machines used in road construction in Balaghat.

Naxals are against construction of roads to far-flung areas and in forests. After setting fire to the machines and pickup, they escaped. It is suspected that the Naxals sneaked into the neighbouring Chhattisgarh.

This should be cause of worry for State government. For a few years, the Naxalites were lying low in MP. Though there was movement of the radicals in the region, there was no criminal incident in the last couple of years. Recently the state police' intelligence wing had got information about entry of the Naxals in Balaghat.
