The brutal treatment of a father and son in Sathankulam police station of Thoothukudi district in Tamil Nadu, resulting in their death, exposed the ugly face of the police. It showed that the police are still relying on medieval methods in their day to day working and that custodial torture continues to be an area of serious concern. What was worse, the supervisory officers abdicated their responsibility and failed in their primary duty of registering a case against the delinquent police personnel and getting them arrested. It is a great pity that the high court had to step in and the case had to be handed over to the CBI. The situation could have been easily defused if the officers had risen to the occasion and ensured action under the law. We are now faced with the embarrassment of the UN Secretary General wanting the incident to be investigated.On top of that, we have an encounter in Kanpur where a criminal wanted for the murder of eight policemen was killed by UP Police under circumstances which have raised uncomfortable questions. These would hopefully be answered by a proper inquiry into the matter in due course. However, we need to go to the root of the problem.

The Writers Guild of America, East (WGAE) led the way with a June 8 resolution urging the AFL CIO to drop the International Union of Police Associations (IUPA). Nine days later, the Martin Luther King, Jr. County Labor Council, an AFL CIO regional affiliate, voted to expel the Seattle Police Officers Guild from the coalition. Union shops representing postdoc researchers and teaching assistants have since passed resolutions demanding police union disaffiliation from the AFL CIO, and a coalition of workers within the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) have put forward a similar call to expel its police union affiliates. Except the WGAE, no national unions within the AFL CIO have positioned themselves against police unions beyond calling for the IUPA mdash;a union representing over 100,000 officers across the United States mdash;to reform itself. But a movement is brewing in two large Hollywood unions.
The region has been plagued by narco terrorism. The drug cartels have been very active in the region right from Mexico down to Peru. And this fight against transnational organized crime and drug trafficking has increased the region s requirement for modern protection equipment for their security forces. This makes it a potential market for military stores. Many of the countries and the police military forces of the region are engaged in the modernization of its forces which will give Indian companies the opportunity to exploit that market explained a top diplomat.On the list of systems that are likely to be exported include artillery systems, protected vehicles, electronic warfare, naval combat management system, military communications C4I solutions, small arms, night vision devices, and other related military equipment.In a major policy shift, the government in its first term had notified a new strategy for export of defence products that not only encourages the sale of military equipment to foreign nations.India Chile Defence Cooperation Later this year an Indian Naval Delegation is expected to travel to Chile to attend the EXPONAVAL 2020from December 1 4 at a naval base in that country.

After working in Atlanta for the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (US CDC) I moved back to Pakistan to set up a US CDC and Government of Pakistan collaborative programme, Pakistan Field Epidemiology and Laboratory Training Program (FELTP). FELTP offices were set up at the Pakistan Institute of Health (NIH). For the next 12 years, I was able to learn about its history, founders and challenges. I was awe struck with its founder ''s grand vision as it aligned very much close to US CDC ''s. They envisioned it to be a top health institute of not only Pakistan but of the region. In the 60s, when NIH was founded, no one wanted to live in Islamabad. And Chak Shahzad where NIH is located was a jungle away from Islamabad. Founders built housing facilities for its employees, a small market, and arranged transport for the employee ''s children to go to school. Then the best scientific minds were selected from across Pakistan and NIH reached its zenith. In scientific journals of the past era you will find references from NIH.The National Agriculture and Research Council (NARC) has the same history. In the coming years, successive governments lost interest in both NIH and NARC. In one instance a fully qualified professional was kept as an ”acting ” Executive Director of NIH for over six years. That showed the governments ' non serious attitude to a critical Pakistani institute. But both NIH and NARC have a curse. They also own hundreds of acres of land for their future expansions as was envisioned by their founders but is now valued in billions.

Osama bin Laden s Syrian mother was one of the many wives of his millionaire Yemeni father. While his brothers went to the West for higher education, Osama preferred going to Jeddah s Abdel Aziz University where his fondness for Islamic studies was spurred by two charismatic teachers, Muhammad Qutb and Abdallah Azzam the first an Egyptian, a brother of the great Ikhwan leader, Syed Qutb and the second, a Palestinian who merged the Qutb doctrine of jahiliyya (ignorance) with modern jihad against the West.Osama came to Peshawar in 1980 to conduct jihad against the Soviet Union in Afghanistan. By 1984, Osama got used to spending a lot of time in Peshawar, renting a number of guest houses in the city, and frequenting the office of Al Jihad, the Arabic newspaper that his mentor Azzam was bringing out from Peshawar. (Azzam later gave Pakistan a university in Islamabad that only spread extremism in a state that needed moderate thinking.) Osama s jihad against the Soviets received a setback in 1989 when the mujahideen suffered a defeat at Jalalabad.

MUMBAI: Another example of nepotism in Bollywood is the case of Arjun Kapoor. Ever since his debut, the actor managed to sustain in Bollywood, but fans say that in spite of many of his movies not doing well at the box office the actor is still getting more movies just because of his surname.The actor has given amazing performances in movies like Ishqzaade, Gunday, and 2 States, and was last seen in Panipat.

social facebook social mail CEPR Research Assistant Brett Heinz published the following article at Current Affairs:The nationwide protests against police brutality sparked by the killing of George Floyd have reignited debates over US policing. But the state response to the protests has also raised the question of where exactly domestic law enforcement stops and starts. Customs and Border Patrol (CBP), an organization that describes its mission as safeguard ing America s borders, has stated that it is deploying its officers around the country to help contain the protests. They are among officials from a wide variety of agencies serving as police on the streets of Washington, DC right now, many of whom have no identifying insignia at all. Though the CBP s mandate is to police borders, it has the authority to conduct operations anywhere within 100 miles of a US border, an area encompassing about two thirds of the American population. But even that can t explain why the CBP recently flew a MQ 9 Reaper drone, designed for military use, to spy on Minneapolis, a city 250 miles from the nearest border.
