Panel moots minimum fare for app-based cabs 22.3.2017 deccanherald.com
The committee set up by the Transport department to fix minimum fare for app-based cab aggregators has submitted its report to the government, recommending a fare of Rs 10 per kilometre (km)and Rs 12 per km for small cars and sedans, respectively. Joint Commissioner for Transport J Gnanendra said the fare is the amount that the aggregators must pay to the drivers. "Once the government accepts the report and passes an order, the aggregators can't pay less than that," he said. The senior official said the committee took several parameters into account while arriving at the figures in a scientific way. Sources said the fares of cabs like Ola and Uber may see a marginal increase. "We already have base prices which almost correspond to the same fare index. The drivers, however, will get more money per kilometre," a source said. The source, however, said that the customers who ride beyond 10 km may end up paying more in the coming days.

NIA probe into Rudresh murder quashed; city cops will investigate 21.3.2017 deccanherald.com
The Karnataka High Court on Tuesday quashed the National Investigation Agency's (NIA) probe into the murder case of RSS worker Rudresh. Justice John Michael Cunha set aside the order of the Union government which had empowered NIA to investigate the murder. The accused Asim Shariff and Irfan Pasha had moved the court challenging NIA's probe into the murder investigation contending that the Union government has gone beyond law and has referred the matter to NIA by invoking sections of NIA Act, 1980 suo motu, which otherwise demands cogent material to justify a terrorist act. Though the judge quashed the NIA probe, he directed the Commercial Street police to continue with the investigation under provisions of the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA), 1967. Justice Cunha rejected the petitioners' plea not to extend the investigation period to 180 days. The judge in his order said, "...much before the Central government authorised the NIA to investigate the 'alleged offences', the Inspector General, ...
