On New Year, more than 200 people were booked by the police for drunken driving in Uttar Pradesh. All the drivers booked were under the influence of alcohol and were driving at very high speed.

Out of the 200 booked, 50 of them were from Lucknow and 70 from Kanpur. Others were booked in Allahabad, Agra and Varanasi.

Most of those booked were returning from parties and were intercepted by the police armed with breath analysers stationed at major traffic points.

In Kanpur’s Lajpatnagar, police had to resort to cane charge on a group of revellers after midnight when they were creating ruckus outside a local eatery.

Most of them were drunk and were trying to gate crash the restaurant for liquor and food though the place was full, an official said.

There were clear instructions from the Additional Director General of Police (Law and Order) Anand Singh that drunken driving would not be tolerated.

In a New Year’s eve missive Singh had directed district police chiefs to crack down on such lumpen behaviour.

The New Year was, however, celebrated with abandon and traditional gaiety at most places in the state as families went out for dinners and parties organised by major hotels, clubs, discotheques and pubs. (IANS)

Gunning Down the Rapists

Here's how giving a death penalty to rapists is the right thing to do

Rape
Rape is a heinous crime and the rapists should not be set free.

By SALIL GEWALI

The horrendous acts committed by four boys provoked nationwide outrage. The accused, after the premeditated rape, had set the victim’s body on fire. Nothing could be as shocking as this. Thank God today those four got shot dead in an encounter. I salute the police even if it is a fake encounter. What more we need more than the confession by the criminals. The “evil” must be done away with by all means at the earliest. Else, the rapists will be set free within a few months/years. This again will only embolden other sadists.

Rape punishment
The monsters who raped Nirbhaya in 2012 were awarded with a sewing machine along with the cash prize of Rs 10000/-.

I’m afraid, there is no shortage of leaders and so-called “activists” in the country who stand up and scream to defend the criminals of high order. The monsters who raped Nirbhaya in 2012 was awarded with a sewing machine along with the cash prize of Rs 10000/-. Who proposed this beastly idea? It was by our leaders. Why didn’t we condemn such leaders first? Tolerating the evil is itself a big sin.

This is nothing but allowing to rape the body of society!  Therefore, I fear certain “leaders and activists” of modern times that question the values of humanity, but keep mum, or defend evil of a “certain” kind.
