Cricketing greats Sunil Gavaskar and Wasim Akram have picked their favourite teams in the ongoing Asia Cup 2018. Ahead of the much-anticipated India-Pakistan clash on Wednesday, Sunil Gavaskar has backed arch-rivals Pakistan to come on top out of the two nations while Wasim Akram feels India are favourites on paper. “The last defeat (ICC Champions Trophy final 2017) creates a touch of uncertainty in your mind,” Gavaskar told India Today. Akram, on the other hand, said Pakistan bowlers will be boosted with India skipper Virat Kohli being rested. “Kohli has been rested and that is the right decision. When Gavaskar, Azhar and Tendulkar did not play, I was high on confidence. The Pakistan bowlers will be psychologically boosted with Kohli being rested,” he said.

“India favourites on paper,” he added when asked about India’s chances.

The two teams are facing each other for the first time in the United Arab Emirates since 2006, the last of their regular matches which were also held in Sharjah between 1984-2000.

The game is also the first between the sub-continent rivals since Pakistan thumped India by 180 runs in the final of the Champions Trophy at The Oval in June last year.

Out of the 12 Asia Cup matches played between the two teams, India have won six times (5 ODIs and one T20I) while Pakistan have won on five occasions. One match ended with no result.

India will take on Pakistan in their second Group A fixture on Wednesday. The top two nations from each group will enter the Super Four stage of the tournament. The top two teams in the Super Four section will advance to the final.

Seeking Sexual Favours Punishable Under Prevention of Corruption (Amendment) Act, 2018


Prevention of Corruption (Amendment) Act, 2018 incorporates the term “undue advantage” (Representational)

New Delhi: 

Seeking and accepting sexual favours can be considered a bribe under the new anti-corruption law with the accused getting up to seven years jail term, a senior government official said on Sunday.

The Prevention of Corruption (Amendment) Act, 2018 incorporates the umbrella term “undue advantage”, which means any gratification other than legal remuneration and also includes expensive club memberships and hospitality, the official explained.

The word “gratification” is not limited to pecuniary gratifications or to gratifications estimable in money, says the amended anti-corruption law.

The Act has been notified in late July by the central government after getting assent from President Ram Nath Kovind.

The 2018 law amends the 30-year-old Prevention of Corruption Act, 1988, that covers instances of corruption by public servants.

“Under the amended law, investigating agencies like the CBI can now book officials for seeking and accepting sexual favours, expensive club memberships and hospitality or for providing employment to close friends or relatives among others,” the official said.

It also has the provision to punish bribe givers with a jail term of maximum of seven years.

Before this, bribe givers were not covered in any domestic legislation to check corruption.

Senior Supreme Court lawyer G Venkatesh Rao said the term “undue advantage” could mean any favours which are non-monetary, like expensive gifts or any kind of freebies, giving a free holiday or payment of airline tickets and stay.

“It would also encompass payments for any goods and services deliverable any other commercial entity too, like down payments for the purchase of property or movables and or payments towards memberships of clubs etc. It also includes more specifically sexual favours, which is the most reprehensible of all expectations,” Mr Rao said.

Five years ago, the government introduced the Prevention of Corruption (Amendment) Bill, 2013 to expand the definition of bribery and to cover graft in the private sector.

The term used to define bribery related offences then was “financial or other advantage”.

In November 2015, some official amendments were moved to replace the term “financial or other advantage” with “undue advantage” to make “any gratification other than legal remuneration” punishable.

The official amendments were moved after a Law Commission report in February 2015 suggested there should be a distinction between ‘due’ and ‘undue’ financial or other advantage.

“…financial or other advantage being interpreted using ejusdem generis, does not seem to cover sexual favours in return for the public servant’s acts or omissions. Thus, the proposed amendment is actually narrowing the scope of corruption, instead of the stated intent of expanding it,” it had said in its report on the Prevention of Corruption (Amendment) Bill, 2013.

A Parliamentary panel that examined the bill also endorsed the Law Commission’s stand in its report presented in Parliament in 2016.

“The Committee, however, notes that the Law Commission of India in it Two Hundred Fifty-fourth Report (February, 2015) has suggested to use the expressions ‘undue advantage’ in the PC Act. The Committee endorses the aforesaid amendments proposed to Section 2 of the PC Act, 1988 under the Clause,” it said.

The Committee had also said it “apprehends that the enforcement/probe agencies may misuse the said expression to harass public servant as well as members of civil society in corruption cases and advises that adequate precautions be taken in this regard”.

According to Mr Rao, the Prevention of Corruption (Amendment) Act, 2018, was brought about with the intention of including all kinds of illegal gratification under the microscope, in addition to monetary means of corruption.

The expression “undue advantage” was previously used by the United Nations Convention against Corruption, which India ratified in 2011, he said.

However, the term definitely needs more specific definition for courts to apply the law to individual instances, Mr Rao added.

Another legal expert Simranjeet Singh said the consequential effect of the amendment to the Act is the increase in the ambit of the term “undue advantage”.

It must be therefore ensured that there is no misuse of the statute by investigating agencies, he said.

“This can certainly be ensured by defining the said term in a more definite manner to rule out any ambiguity,” said Mr Singh, principal associate at the Delhi-based law firm Athena Legal.

Big New Snub For India From Maldives As It Favours China

NEW DELHI: 

The Maldives wants India to withdraw military helicopters and personnel posted there following the expiry of an agreement in June, its envoy said, the latest snub to Delhi by President Abdulla Yameen’s China-backed government.

India and China are going head to head in the Maldives, the Indian Ocean island chain where Beijing is building roads, bridges and a bigger airport, upstaging India which has been the country’s prime provider of military and civilian aid for decades.

India has opposed Yameen’s crackdown on political rivals and the imposition of an emergency this year and some of the president’s rivals have called on Delhi for military intervention, creating worries in the Maldivian government.

The tensions are impacting aid programmes such as security assistance that Delhi has given to smaller countries in the region to help them protect exclusive economic zones, carry out surveys and combat piracy.

The Maldives’ ambassador in India, Ahmed Mohamed, told Reuters that two military helicopters provided by India were mainly used for medical evacuations but were no longer required as the islands had built up enough resources of its own.

“They were very useful in the past but with the development of adequate infrastructure, facilities and resources we are now in a position to handle medical evacuations on our own,” he said.

However, India and the Maldives are still conducting joint patrols in the islands’ exclusive economic zone every month, Mohamed said. The Maldives, 400 km (250 miles) to the southwest of India, is close to the world’s busiest shipping lanes, between China and the Middle East.

Along with the helicopters, India had stationed around 50 military personnel, including pilots and maintenance crew, and their visas had expired. But Delhi has not yet withdrawn them from the island chain.

“We are still there, our two helicopters and the men,” an Indian navy spokesman said on Wednesday, adding the foreign ministry was handling the situation. The foreign ministry did not respond to a Reuters’ request for comment.

India has been demanding that Yameen free political rivals including former President Abdul Gayoom and Supreme Court justices. It also criticised Yameen’s decision to hold elections in September saying the rule of law should be restored before embarking on such an exercise.

India was a close supporter of Gayoom during his long years of stewardship of the island chain and sent troops to foil an attempted coup against him in 1988.

China, which opened an embassy in the Maldives in 2011, has rapidly built ties with the tropical island chain as part of its Belt and Road Initiative. It says it is opposed to any country interfering in the internal affairs of the Maldives.

Providing helicopters and patrol boats and satellite assistance to countries such as the Maldives, Mauritius and the Seychelles has been part of India’s naval diplomacy to retain influence in the Indian Ocean.

But in recent years China has moved in, building ports and roads backed by loans. In the Maldives, Beijing Urban Construction Group Company Limited took over a project to expand the airport servicing the capital Male, after the government cancelled a $511 million deal with India’s GMR Infrastructure.

Maldives has also given the Chinese a few islands to develop, officials said. Abhijit Singh, a former Indian naval officer who specialises on Indian Ocean politics at the New Delhi-based Observer Research Foundation, said the Indian helicopters were deployed near the islands where the Chinese were present.

“Now the issue is Yameen wants the helicopters out, but more importantly he wants the personnel out. It is not the helicopters that trouble him so much, it is actually the fact that there are these people there.”

“Yameen has invited China to do a lot of infrastructure building and he suspects that India is trying to keep a watch on what the Chinese are doing and so wants to keep the Indians out,” said Singh.

Ambassador Ahmed declined comment on that view.

Imran Khan Favours Cooperation With India For Regional Peace


Imran Khan’s PTI’s manifesto said the party will focus on strategic partnerships (File)

Islamabad: 

Imran Khan on Monday vowed to make Pakistan an Islamic welfare state as he unveiled his party’s manifesto which said the “most viable” policy to ensure peace in the region was to cooperate with India, including on the Kashmir issue within the parameters of the UNSC resolutions.

The 65-year-old cricketer-turned-politician said his Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has a 100-day plan to meet serious economic and administrative woes faced by the country if his party is voted to power in the July 25 elections.

On the foreign policy and national defence front, the PTI’s manifesto said the party would work on a blueprint towards resolving the Kashmir issue within the parameters of the UN Security Council resolutions.

“For lasting peace within our own region, especially with our neighbour India, conflict resolution and the security route to cooperation is the most viable,” the manifesto of the party said.

The manifesto said, PTI’s guiding principles will be of reciprocity, mutual interests and international norms that will govern Pakistan’s relations at the bilateral and multilateral levels.

“We are committed to initiating new policies rooted in Pakistan’s priorities, including a conflict resolution approach towards improving our relation with our eastern and western neighbours,” it said.

If elected, the PTI’s focus will be on moves to expand the existing strategic partnership with China, as well as with the country’s other allies in the region, including the newly emerging cooperation with Russia. With the US, reciprocity and mutuality of interest will be the determinants of our relationship, it said.

It promised that the credibility of Pakistan’s full spectrum deterrence will be ensured.

The PTI will move substantively on the bilateral strategic dialogue with India encompassing all aspects of the strategic nuclear deterrence so as to prevent a spiraling nuclear arms race in the region.

On combat terrorism, the PTI manifesto said, immediate steps will be taken to reform the criminal judicial system and revise the anti-terror legislations so that it is precise and focused on terrorism.

The PTI “will not allow Pakistan’s territory or people, including its armed forces, to be used by any other nation for the promotion of its political ideology or hegemony, for promoting terrorism or for destabilisation of any other state,” it said.

Supreme Court Favours Live Streaming Of Proceedings, A TV Channel May Be A Reality Soon


Litigants have the right to know how their cases are dealt with, says Supreme Court

New Delhi: 

The Supreme Court while hearing a petition filed by senior lawyer Indira Jaising, on allowing people to watch what happens in courtrooms said it is not opposed to the live streaming of proceedings. The Centre in its reply to the petition said if the top court takes a policy decision; it can facilitate the setting up of a separate channel for the Supreme Court, like the Lok Sabha or the Rajya Sabha TV, which live telecasts parliament sessions.

Chief Justice Deepak Misra said, “The concept of access to justice can be stretched through live streaming. Litigants are entitled to know how their cases are dealt with and will ensure transparency. Litigants will also know how his or her lawyer is presenting the case.”  

The Chief Justice however, had a word of caution for sensitive rape trials or matrimonial cases.

The court also said live streaming of proceedings “will help students to learn.” 

The centre, represented by the Attorney General KK Venugopal told the court “on an experimental basis the Chief Justice’s court can be the first” and then live streaming can be extended to other courts.

The three-judge bench comprising Chief Justice Deepak Misha, Justice DY Chandrachud and Justice AM Khanwilkar asked the parties for “suggestions.”

Indira Jaising in her plea filed in January had said live telecast of court proceedings would be in line with the principle of open court and cited a 1967 verdict by a nine-judge bench that courts “must permit the public admission to the court room”.

She had also pointed out that the live telecast of Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha proceedings since 2003 and 2004 respectively had generated awareness among the people about the work of their elected representatives and enhanced transparency in the parliamentary processes.

“There is no rational reason as to why the same should not be done for cases of constitutional and national importance that impact the public at large,” Ms Jaising had said in her petition.

AIADMK Says It Favours The Proposal For Simultaneous Polls, But After 2021


Simultaneous polls in Tamil Nadu may be considered in 2024, Fisheries Minister D Jayakumar said. (File)

Chennai: 

The ruling AIADMK in Tamil Nadu was in principle agreeable to the proposal to hold simultaneous polls to Parliament and state assemblies, but wants it to be considered after 2021 when the present state assembly’s term would expire, a senior leader today said.

This view had been conveyed through a letter to the Law Commission and it will be put forth again by AIADMK leaders during the panel’s two-day deliberations on the matter being held in Delhi from today, senior leader and Fisheries Minister D Jayakumar told reporters in Chennai.

He was replying to a question on the consultations by the Centre on holding simultaneous polls and the Tamil Nadu government’s stand.

He said “the tenure of the (present) Tamil Nadu Assembly is till 2021” and hence assembly election should not be combined with the Lok Sabha poll scheduled for next year.

Simultaneous polls in Tamil Nadu may be considered in 2024, he added.

Though the proposal to hold simultaneous polls to Parliament and state assemblies was agreeable in principle for the AIADMK which meant “toeing the line of Amma (late chief minister Jayalalithaa),” it can, however, be considered post-2021 Assembly polls, Mr Jayakumar said.

Jayalalithaa had in 2015 conveyed to the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Personnel, Law and Justice that her party favoured the idea of simultaneous polls in principle.

The former chief minister, had, however, flagged “some key issues” that had to be addressed before the new mechanism could be put in place.

The Law Commission is holding consultations at Delhi with all the national and state parties on the feasibility of holding simultaneous polls.

It had written to the seven recognised national and 59 state parties seeking their participation in the meeting.

Yavatmal: 

Police in Yavatmal district of Maharashtra on Tuesday arrested the secretary of a cooperative credit society for allegedly demanding sexual favours from a woman for helping her get a bank loan.

Dadarao Ingole, resident of Talegaon and the secretary of a local cooperative credit society, was booked under IPC sections 354 (A) (sexual harassment) and (D) (stalking), said Darwha Police Station Officer Rita Uikey.

He was later released on bail by a magistrate’s court though police sought his custody, she added.

A woman lodged a complaint yesterday that Ingole sought sexual favours from her for helping her get a loan of Rs 5 lakh for dairy business from a cooperative bank, the police officer said.

The woman and her farmer husband had sought Ingole’s help for obtaining the loan on the advice of a relative.

The woman also claimed to have recorded the accused’s calls on her mobile phone.

Police officer Uikey said the recording will be sent to a forensic science laboratory for examination.

In a similar case, a branch manager of Central Bank of India was arrested in Buldhana district last month when he allegedly sought sexual favours from a farmer’s wife to sanction a crop loan.
