While allowing the regular bail application of the Petitioner-accused who had joined the investigation as and when required, the bench comprised of Justice Sandeep Sharma observed, “object of the bail is to secure the attendance of the accused in the trial and the proper test to be applied in the solution of the question whether bail should be granted or refused is whether it is probable that the party will appear to take his trial. Otherwise, bail is not to be withheld as a punishment.” Reliance was placed on Sanjay Chandra v. Central Bureau of Investigation, (2012) 1 SCC 49, whereby the Supreme Court had observed, “The object of bail is to secure the appearance of the accused person at his trial by reasonable amount of bail. The object of bail is neither punitive nor preventative. Deprivation of liberty must be considered a punishment, unless it can be required to ensure that an accused person will stand his trial when called upon. The Courts owe more than verbal respect to the principle that punishment begins after conviction, and that every man is deemed to be innocent until duly tried and duly found guilty.” The Petitioner had been booked under Sections 509, 354, 354-A, 323 and 504 of IPC and Section 3(1) (10) of the SC/ ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Act, 1989. Since the Additional Advocate General, appearing for the state had informed the court that the Petitioner-accused had joined the investigation and was no longer required for custodial interrogation, the bench allowed the bail plea. While doing so, the bench highlighted the factors laid down by the Supreme Court in Prasanta Kumar Sarkar v. Ashis Chatterjee & Anr., (2010) 14 SCC 496, for grant of bail and it observed, “normal rule is of bail and not jail. Court has to keep in mind nature of accusations, nature of evidence in support thereof, severity of the punishment which conviction will entail, character of the accused, circumstances which are peculiar to the accused involved in that crime.” It thereafter ordered that the Petitioner be enlarged on bail subject to his furnishing personal bond in the sum of Rs. 20,000/- each with one local surety in the like amount to the satisfaction of concerned Chief Judicial Magistrate/trial Court.

Have you thought about where the core values at your company came from?In all probability, they were developed as a way to successfully drive a specific culture and achieve organizational success. A senior leadership team spent a lot of time thinking through all of those relationships and what they wanted the company to be.Far from a straightforward task, developing core values can be challenging. It all comes down to ensuring the right balance between aspirations and reality of how work gets done. As I wrote in a recent post on the Compensation Cafe, core values can often fall short of the goals for which they were developed. continue reading » 16SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr

Kolkata: Kolkata Knight Riders’ impact player Andre Russell was forced to skip the practice session on Thursday, owing to a shoulder injury sustained while batting in the nets on Wednesday. KKR will take on Royal Challengers Bangalore in an IPL game on Friday and Russell’s possible absence could pave the way for Carlos Brathwaite’s inclusion in the playing XI. The Barbados all-rounder, who is KKR’s costliest pick of Rs 5 crore at the auctions, played only one match for KKR, against Delhi Capitals here that they lost by seven wickets. Also Read – Puducherry on top after 8-wkt win over ChandigarhFretting over Russell’s fitness, KKR skipper Karthik however did not rule out the Jamaican who has been a revelation with six explosive 40-plus scores on the trot. “He’s got a preliminary X ray yesterday and it’s not even be 24 hours. By tomorrow, we will a get much better idea as to how he feels,” Karthik said of Russell. It was during the fag end of the practice on Wednesday that Russell failed to negotiate a rising delivery from net bowler Minad Manjrekar and fell on the ground, writhing in pain. Also Read – Vijender’s next fight on Nov 22, opponent to be announced laterIt was the same left shoulder where Russell was hit by a Harshal Patel delivery during KKR’s match against Delhi Capitals at the Kotla. Russell had also suffered a wrist injury in their away match against Chennai as it remains to be seen whether the team will risk playing the Jamaican. KKR have suffered a hat-trick of losses as Karthik urged his batsmen and bowlers to buck up. “I’m not going to shy away from the fact that we can bat better a little better definitely and definitely bowl a little better.” Meanwhile, RCB top order batsman AB de Villiers also skipped the training, while skipper Virat Kohli took a few throw-downs from coach Gary Kirsten after a game of football. Rejuvenated by a World Cup call-up, Karthik would be eager to impress India captain Virat Kohli and also arrest the Kolkata Knight Riders’ three game losing streak, when they lock horns with Royal Challengers Bangalore in an Indian Premier League clash here on Friday. In their first-leg clash in Bengaluru, Russell made all the difference with a whirlwind 13-ball 48 to drag KKR out of the woods and guide them to a remarkable five-wicket win. While Russell’s availability is a big concern for the home side who have not won in their last three matches, and placed sixth in the points table, there would be no shortage of inspiration for 33-year-old Karthik. Kohli has his own problems as far as RCB is concerned with the team all but out of the competition if they lose on Friday. Rock-bottom in the table with just one win from eight matches, RCB just haven’t been in the groove this year. From the remaining six games, they would have to win all to give themselves any chance of a playoff berth. Kohli has also not led from the front, cutting a forlorn figure on the field more often than not and also failing to fire with the bat. The team’s main problem has been their bowling which has been poor to say the least, except for Yuzvendra Chahal. In KKR, they would face an opponent hungry to return to winning ways after losing back-to-back home games.
New Delhi: The world’s largest oil company Aramco will provide additional crude oil to domestic oil refiners to meet shortages arising from the US decision to lift Iran sanction waivers from major oil importing countries, including India. Sources in state-run oil companies said that the Saudi Arabian oil giant has offered to increase crude oil supplies to India by 200,000 barrels a day (bpd) that would meet almost half of the country’s oil imports that was coming from Iran. Also Read – Commercial vehicle sales to remain subdued in current fiscal: IcraOn an annual basis, 200,000 bpd of oil equals about 10 million tonne (mt) of oil per year. India imported 23.9 mt of crude oil from Iran in FY19, making the Gulf country the third biggest exporter of oil after Iraq and Saudi Arabia. Aramco’s offer to Indian oil companies is for deliveries starting June. The oil situation is also expected to get clearer from June when the full might of US sanctions would come into play. Though US sanction waiver was lifted from May 2, India is still getting some oil from Iran on contracts reached earlier. Also Read – Ashok Leyland stock tanks over 5 pc as co plans to suspend production for up to 15 daysSources said that while the Saudi offer of increased oil quantity has generally been welcomed by domestic oil companies as it will help alleviate the squeeze driven by US sanctions on Iran and Venezuela, the supply is unlikely to be made on terms given by Iran. In fact, refiners would face a heftier bill on Arab light crude. Iran used to offer Indian refiners 60 day credit for oil deliveries and also gave discounts on freight and insurance. Saudi Arabia on the other hand charges an Asian premium for its crude oil exports to India. It is for this reason that India has been expanding the list of oil source markets to prevent disruptions in one part of the world from affecting its supplies. India imports more than 80 per cent of its oil requirements and it is thus imperative for it to ensure that supply lines are maintained at all times. With Iran and Venezuela, which is the fifth largest supplier of crude to India, coming under US sanctions, India has also started exploring higher oil imports from other Latin American countries such as Brazil and Mexico with which it has shared a healthy economic relationship. Indian oil companies are also exploring raising imports from African countries and looking at the US shale oil option. According to data from the Directorate General of Commercial Intelligence and Statistics, Iraq sold 46.61 mt crude oil to India during FY19, which is two per cent more than the 45.74 mt it had supplied in FY18. This helped Iraq to become the top oil exporter to India. India provisionally imported 207.3 mt of crude oil in FY19, down from 220.4 mt in the previous financial year. Saudi Arabia has traditionally been India’s top oil source, but it came second in FY19. In 2018, Saudi Arabia exported 40.33 mt oil, up from 36.16 mt oil sold in the previous year. Iran on the other hand sold 23.9 mt of crude in FY19, up from 22.59 mt in the previous year. UAE topped Venezuela to become India’s fourth-largest crude supplier. It sold 17.49 mt of crude oil to India in FY19 against 17.32 mt of oil coming from Venezuela. The Finance Ministry is also closely watching the economic costs of non-Iranian oil imports from other alternative markets like Iraq and Saudi Arabia, following the United States’ withdrawal earlier this month of the waiver granted last year to some countries by the US on its Iran sanctions. Following the withdrawal of the US waiver, India has stopped contracting oil shipments from Iran this weekend, an official source said here on Wednesday. Petroleum Minister Dharmenra Pradhan last month had said that government has put in place a robust plan for the adequate supply of crude oil to Indian refineries. There will be additional supplies from other major oil producing countries and Ind ian refineries are fully prepared to meet the national demand for petrol, diesel and other petroleum products, he said. With 80 per cent of India’s requirements being met through imports, higher-priced oil from non-Iranian sources can make a big dent in the country’s current account deficit and forex reserves. Oil imports from Iran in the past fiscal ended March amounted to about $9 billion, as per industry figures. Official sources here said that getting oil from alternative sources would have financial implications and lead to further pressure when crude touches $75-80 per barrel in the near-term, putting pressure on India’s import bill. Iran used to offer India a longer credit period of 60 days compared to other crude suppliers, while the cargo insurance was free, the sources said. Imports from Iraq, UAE and Saudi Arabia will now be on the higher side, without some of the benefits that Iran was giving, they added. Iran’s eight biggest oil buyers — China, India, Japan, South Korea, Italy, Greece, Turkey and Taiwan — had received the US waivers last November, which had allowed them to continue importing limited volumes of Iranian crude.
Arsene Wenger has dismissed concerns over the lack of attendance in Arsenal’s 3-0 win over Stoke City on Saturday’s league matchThree late second-half goals from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (twice) and Alexandre Lacazette secured the three points for Wenger’s side.

They will be back on Thursday, don’t worry.“It’s explainable by the fact that it’s Easter.
