The Congress today sharpened its attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, dubbing him "Maun Modi" (silent Modi) for his "continued silence" on issues critical to the country, and alleged that raids by agencies in the bank scam are a mere "eyewash" to befool the public. Leading the attack was Congress President Rahul Gandhi, who fired yet another salvo at the prime minister over his "silence" on the multi-crore PNB bank fraud, asking where the "country's watchman" was when jeweller Nirav Modi fled the country like liquor baron Vijay Mallya. Gandhi took the swipe at the prime minister for his refrain during poll rallies that he would act as a watchman for the country, and cited his "na khaoonga, na khaane doonga" (will neither do nor allow anyone to do corruption) statement. The Congress chief said the entire country was keen to know the "secret behind his silence" and alleged that it screams out loudly where his loyalties were. "First Lalit (Modi) and then (Vijay) Mallya, now Nirav ...

Reevaluate how electronic docs be authenticated: HC to courts 7.2.2018 General News
The Delhi High Court has held that courts ought to reevaluate the manner by which they require electronic documents to be authenticated. Dealing with a case relating to a loan default, Justice Pratibha M Singh observed that merely because a printout of statement of an account is filed as secondary evidence with necessary certificate, does not make it less valid. The court's observations were made while setting aside a trial court order, which had dismissed the recovery suit of the ICICI Bank on grounds that it failed to file the original loan recall notice. The high court, however, observed, "Despite all the original documents being on record, the trial court proceeded on an erroneous assumption that the original loan recall notice dated February 11, 2014, has not been placed on record and only a photocopy of the same has been placed on record. "It is actually unfathomable as to how the loan recall notice, issued to the Defendants, could be produced in original by the ...

The former India fast bowler made the complaint in the cyber crime complaint cell here at the police headquarters. These vulgar things are appearing in the internet for over two years now.
