angs and criminals active in

the national Capital and its
peripheral areas have been a
perennial headache for the Delhi
Police. And to address the problem, the Crime Branch and
Special Cell the two arms of
the city police supposed to
rein in these gangsters, have prepared a list of Delhis top-10
criminals. The updated list of the
most wanted or as the
Compendium of Top Criminals
in Delhi comes less than two
months of publication of the previous one.
Police officials said they are
expanding the list to top-20 and
may add more names to put all
criminals under the lens. The
list also contains the names of
associates along with the top
criminals, which has been
updated after studying their
various criminal activities, said
a police officer.
The list was revisited since
a few of the criminals listed in
the previous one have been
arrested. While this list contains the names of 10 criminals,
the new list may go well beyond
25, a senior official said.
According to a senior officer of Crime Branch, a crackdown has already been launched
on these desperate and hardened
criminals. The list carries the
details of activities and an exasutive database of their activities,
crime history and photos.
The first on the list now is
Swami Pratibhanand, who was
involved in the sensational murder of BSP leader Deepak
Pratibhanand holds a bounty of
C1 lakh on him. Pratibhanand
had emerged as a vital cog in the
murder of the big time city realtor and BSP leader Deepak
Bhardawaj in March 2013. He is
absconding and several teams of
Delhi Police have not been able
to trace him, said an official.
The criminals in the list
who carry a reward of C1 lakh
each or more are: Former
Mundka MLA Rambeer
Shokeen, Jitender Gogi, Kapil
Sangwan, alias, Nandu; Manjit
Singh, alias, Mahal; Hemant,
alias, Pradhan; Satyawan, alias,
Sonu; Shakti, alias, Sharda;

are residents of Delhi and live

in different areas. Most of
them are from South-West and
outer districts. One is from the
North-East district and another from the South district, said
a police official. Most of these
criminals are a part of gangs
and face charges of extortion,
the official added.
Kapil Sangwan, Manjit
Singh, Hemant, Satyawan and
Shakti have been linked to the
recent gang wars in South-West
Delhi, said sources. In one of
the gang wars, former MLA
Bharat Singh was gunned down
by a group reportedly led by
Hemant, the official added.
Jatinder, alias, Gogi, an
undertrial, escaped from the
custody of the Delhi Police in
July this year.
Manjit Singhs name has





come up in 21 cases the

highest, said police. Surender
has 14 cases, a police source
said. Rohit Chaudharys name
cropped up in a robbery at
Lajpat Nagar in 2013 as well as
in a murder near Qtub Minar
in 2014, said the source.
Expressing concern over
increasing number of criminals
cases that also includes motor
vehicle theft and snatching
cases in the national Capital in
the last three years, Delhi Police
Commissioner Alok Kumar
Verma has instructed Deputy
Commissioners of Police to
invoke stringent Sections of
IPC against proclaimed offenders repeating such crimes. The
police chief had directed that all
the cases under the Motor
Vehicles Act should be added
in the heinous crime category.

Besides, as police found

that auto-lifter gangs in the
Capital have turned tech-savvy,
with many of them using software and other equipment to
break into vehicles, the top cop
has directed the Joint CP
(Crime) to write to all car manufacturers to take preventive
steps in this regard. According
to police estimate, 45 interstate
auto-lifter gangs are operating
in the Capital and the gangs no
longer use conventional methods to break into vehicles.
Delhi Police Commissioner
had also issued orders to all field
officers and Joint CPs in Ranges
to explore and invoke stringent
provisions of Maharashtra
Control of Organised Crime Act
(MCOCA) and National
Security Act (NSA) to rein in
these criminals.

elhi Assembly Speaker
Ram Niwas Goel has writD
ten to Information &
Broadcasting Minister M
Venkiah Naidu that he has
instructed Assembly Secretary
Prasanna Kumar Suryadevara
not to respond to a memorandum served upon him for not
reporting for duty to the
Director General of the All
India Radio and for writing an
article in a national daily whereby he had criticised the Union
Government in violation of
the Central Government
Srvices Conduct Rules.
The Speaker has once again
urged the I&B Minister to
allow Suryadevara to continue
as the Assembly Secretary on a
permanent basis. The Prasar
Bharati had recently directed
the Delhi Government to
relieve Suryadevara as his services were required immediately at the AIR.
This is the fourth occasion
when Goel has requested the
Union Minister to allow
Suryadevara to continue as the
Secretary of the Delhi Assembly.
In reply to one such communication, Naidu had even
assured the Speaker that he
would get the matter examined.
Before Naidu could take a call
on the matter, the officer was
directed by the Prasar Bharati
to immediately report to work
with the AIR.
The Prasar Bharati directive had not gone well with the
Speaker who in return had
directed the officer not to follow any such instructions and

continue to discharge his duties

as the Assembly Secretary till
his further orders.
Even the Delhi Assembly in
its sitting on September 9 had
passed a resolution endorsing
the Speakers decision to retain
the officer as the Vidhan Sabha
secretary. The Speaker said
during the course of short
duration discussion he had also
made a request to Naidu on
behalf of the House to allow
Suryadevara to be absorbed in
the Assembly as its Secretary on
a permanent basis.
According to sources, Goel
wants to meet Naidu and
sought appointment to resolve
the issue. This is the second letter written by Goel to Naidu
but he has yet to get response.
In his three-page communication to Naidu, the Speaker
said, I urge upon you once
again, Sir, keeping in view the
long term interest of the
Legislative Assembly, to direct
the authorities to concur with
my request for Suryadevaras
absorption in the Assembly as
its Secretary on a permanent
basis. I also request you to
kindly instruct the DG-AIR to
withdraw the impunged office
memorandum served upon
him so that he is not subjected to any kind of harassment.
Goel said the officer was,
however, served with an office
memorandum which stated
that he had been relieved from
the Delhi Government and
was to report to the DG AIR.
Since the officer had not
reported to the AIR DG, the
memorandum directed him to
report for duty immediately

weapons and 54 magazines

from criminals this year.
While 5,153 rounds of
ammunition were recovered
in 2015, as many as 6,553
rounds have been recovered till
August this year. Police said the
weapons seized this year
include, .32 bore pistols, .22
bore pistols, single and double
barrel guns, and .315 bore
rifles. In June, sophisticated
firearms, including a US army
pistol and a foreign-made laser
light equipped gun, were recovered from two interstate gangsters involved in a series of
murders in Haryana and Delhi,
added police.
On August 26 this year,
another Special Cell team recovered 20 semi-automatic sophisticated .32 bore pistols manufactured in Madhya Pradeshs
Dhar district. Police has also
identified two other districts in

MP, Khargone and Sendhwa,

from where the consignments
are smuggled out. Uttar
Pradeshs Meerut and Aligarh,
and Bihars Munger are considered manufacturing hubs of
illegal guns, said a police official.
A senior police official
said, The increase in inflow of
weapons in the city might be
one of the reasons for the
recovery of such a large quantity of firearms this year. But
our detection of cases has also
While police have recovered Indian-made or countrymade weapons in most cases,
the recent recovery of foreignmade pistols was alarming.
Country-made pistols are
commonly used by local criminals, which they buy in bulk. But
foreign weapons are expensive
and are probably smuggled by
gangsters, the official added.

In a recent case in NorthEast district, police had booked

former Member of Parliament
DP Yadav under MCOCA after
his associates were found to be
running orgainsed Satta racket. Officials say, they are preparing dossiers and collective evidences to book more hardened
criminals under MCOCA.
The NSA of 1980 empowers the Central and State
Governments to detain a person to prevent him or her
from acting in any manner
prejudicial to the security of
India, the relation of India

with foreign countries, the

maintenance of public order, or
the maintenance of supplies
and services essential to the
community it is necessary so to
do. The Act also gives powers
to the Governments to detain
a foreigner in a view to regulate his presence or expel from
the country. The Act extends to
the whole of India except the
State of Jammu & Kashmir. The
maximum period of detention
under the act is 12 months.
Commissioner has also directed the DCP North-West district

to take some action under the

Maharashtra Control of
Organised Crime Act. The concerned DCP apprised the top
cop that his men have already
identified two cases and his
team was working on them. The
MCOCA was enacted by
Maharashtra in 1999 to combat
organised crime and terrorism.
The preamble to MCOCA says
that the existing legal framework, ie the penal and procedural laws and the adjudicatory system, are found to be rather
inadequate to curb or control the
menace of organised crime.

s per the Delhi Police latest

data, they have recovered as
many as 444 firearms, including
foreign-made pistols, this year.
Police officials said they managed to seize 20 firearms more
than last year.
According to police, the
national Capital is becoming a
transit point of the illegal arms
trade due to regular inflow of
firearms from other places,
including Madhya Pradesh,
Uttar Pradesh and Darbhanga
in Bihar. The Delhi Police
Special Cell in a recent recovery of firearms also found out
that weapons were smuggled in
from Pakistan as well.
On August 18, a team of
Delhi Polices Special Cell team
recovered weapons, one made
in Germany (Walther) and the
other in US (Sig Sauer), from
two criminals in Uttar Pradesh.
The suppliers were arrested following a shoot-out with police
near ISBT Sarai Kale Khan, said
police. Eight more pistols from
China and Russia were recovered from the duo.
In 2016 till August, police
arrested 466 people in connection with 398 arms cases. Last
year, 811 people were arrested
and 700 cases were reported,
according to police data, which
also highlighted that the Delhi
Police seized 94 sharp edged

Rambeer Shokeen, who
carries a reward of C1 lakh on
his arrest, was charged last
year under provisions of
Maharashtras strict anti-organised crime law MCOCA for his
alleged involvement in a syndicate headed by his nephew
Neeraj Bawana, who has been
arrested. Rambir Shokeen had
won the 2013 Delhi Assembly
elections as an Independent
candidate from Mundka constituency and later joined the
Congress. A Delhi court had
issued a non-bailable warrant
against him in April last year
after he went into hiding, refusing to join the investigation
against Bawana.

failing which he would be

treated on unauthorised
absence. The memorandum
also cited an article written by
the officer in a national daily
stating that he had criticised
certain actions of the Union
Government in violation of
the Conduct Rules. The memorandum had directed the officer to explain within a week
why disciplinary action should
not be initiated against him.
Goel said the memorandum had come as a shock to
him because a sub-ordinate
wing of the Union Government
had decided to issue it even
after he had been assured by
the Union Minister that his
plea was being examined.
He said after going through
the contents of the memorandum and guided by his firm
belief and also as mandated by
the Assembly in its recent resolution he was left with no
other option but to direct
Suryadevara to continue to
discharge his duties as the
Vidhan Sabha secretary. He
said the officer had written the
article after obtaining due permission from him and he had
never found any objectionable
thing in the write-up. He said
he has directed the officer not
to respond to the memorandum as he himself would be
responding to it.

Chunauti 2018 has entered
a new phase this week as the
entire school machinery geared
up to meet 100 per cent Ability
to Read target set by Deputy
Chief Minister Manish Sisodia.
A baseline assessment done
as part of Delhi Governments
education reforms had shown
that 74 per cent students in
Class 6 could not read their
own textbooks.
On the occasion of
Teachers Day on September 5,
Sisodia who also holds education portfolio, had administered a pledge to teachers that
all children studying in Class 6
to 8 should be able to read by
Childrens Day, November 14.
The Government has constantly worked on improving
infrastructure and teaching
conditions in government
schools of Delhi. Improving

learning levels of children is

also a priority for our
Government. The 100 per cent
Ability to Read initiative will
go a long way in helping children learn better and faster in
schools, Sisodia said.
Chunauti 2018 - is a plan
to provide special support to
children who are not able to
read their textbook.
Students from the Nishtha
level, who have till now achieved
reading skills and basic mathematical abilities, will be now
transitioned to their grade
appropriate syllabus over the
remaining academic year.

be divided with some asserting

only 0.1 per cent people run the
risk of dying due to its
complications while other
medical professionals attributed the fatalities to the vectorborne disease.
1 out of 1,000 people, i.e.,
0.1 per cent run the risk of
dying due to chikungunya
complications and that too if
the patient has co-morbid conditions. Chikungunya is otherwise non-fatal, AIIMS Head
of the Department of Medicine
Dr SK Sharma said.
At least 15 fatalities due to
chikungunya complications have
been reported at various city
hospitals, including one at
AIIMS, while over 2,600 people
have been affected by the mosquito-borne fever this season.
If one analyses the deaths,
attributed to chikungunya,

being reported in Delhi, you

would realise that most of them
had co-morbid conditions, like
hypertension or diabetes or
kidney or other renal problems.
Chikungunya as such cannot
cause death, AIIMS Director
Dr MC Misra said.
But doctors at the Sir
Ganga Ram Hospital (SGRH),
where nearly half of these
deaths have been recorded,
said it was chikungunya that
precipitated the death.
Yes, most of these patients
were old and had co-morbidity,
but why are people finding it
hard to believe that chikungunya cannot cause death. There are
six crore diabetic people in
Delhi, nearly 15 lakh suffer
from blood pressure problems,
they werent dying earlier.
The seven people, who
died here, were elderly people
and suffered ztriggered by
chikungunya and succumbed.
Why are we so embarrassed to
admit that these deaths were
due to chikungunya?

As per WHO reports,

chikungunya outbreak in France
and the US and South America
have caused deaths, Chairman
of Department of Medicine at
SGRH, Dr SP Byotra said.
Among the remaining
fatalities, five of them were
reported at Apollo Hospital,
one each at AIIMS, Hindu
Rao Hospital and Pushpawati
Singhania Research Institute.
Dr Suranjit Chatterjee,
Department of Internal
Medicine at Apollo Hospital,
said, while a debate over
the fatality issue is fine, doctors should not get dogmatic
that chikungunya cannot lead
to death.
Out of the five patients
who died at Apollo, while four
of them were old and had
some kind of co-morbid conditions, a 31-year-old man
from Noida, did not have it,
and died within a day of admission. His death has puzzled all
of us doctors, he said.

are diagnosed with prostate canthen heres some good news as

have to worry much as you
can live a normal life with medication.
According to AIIMS senior urologist,
prostate cancer is an innocent one
unlike other cancers where patients survival rates are only five years.
Prostate cancer has a survival rate for
10-15 years. He said in 40 per cent males,
the cancer remains silent without even
being noticed while in 60 per cent people who face some issues can be easily
treated and they can live a normal life.
Health experts said once there was
a time when prostate cancer was common in Western countries, but today, this
urological disorder is more common in
India, with highest cases in metro cities.
Delhi State Cancer registry shows

cancer of the prostate is the second most

frequently diagnosed cancer among
men in Delhi accounting for about 6.78
per cent of all malignancies. The cancer projection data shows that the
number of cases will be doubled by 2020.
Professor (Dr) P N Dogra, who
heads the Urology department of
AIIMS said, Wherever a person is diagnosed with cancer, he thinks that he will
die in a few years, however, if a person

suffers from prostate cancer, he will not

die. He can live a normal life for 10-15
years with medication.
Sedentary life style with obesity can
trigger chances of getting prostate cancer
although it is mainly genetically driven.
We cannot prevent prostate cancer practically. However, a vigil on prostrate health
can help. If detected early in localised stage
and definitive treatment is given, the
patient can be cured, said Dr Dogra.
The Indian Council of Medical
Research finding said prostate cancer is
the second leading cancer among males
in large Indian cities like Delhi, Kolkata,
Pune and Thiruvananthapuram; third in
cities like Bangalore and Mumbai.
Professor (Dr) Anup Kumar, Head
of Department of Urology and Renal
Transplant at Safdarjang Hospital said,
Over 85per cent of the cancer can be
cured by medicine while10-15 per cent

can be cured by surgery. Even, Delhi State

Cancer registry shows 2nd most common
cancer in males here, said Dr Kumar.
Health experts said most of the
general population does not know
about the prostate gland, it is just below
the bladder. Cancer develops generally after 50 years of age. Primarily, it is
genetic but life style, age can contribute
for this cancer.
Problem, with this cancer is that
despite signs and symptoms of prostate
enlargement many patients think that
they are having urinary frequency, urinary hesitation and ignore them. It is
very important that patients who after
50 years suffer from any urinary complications should visit urologist and
undergo Prostate-Specific Antigen
(PSA) test, which is tumor marker, so
that doctor can rule out cancer, said Dr
Kumar said
