Mahindra Utility tumbles down off the road in Vikasnagar


Today at around 01:15 PM a Mahindra utility (HP-64-0817) came tumbling down from the main road near CID office, Vikasnagar. The vehicle is registered to Vishvnath Shah from Kasumpti (according to the description written on the vehicle). At the time of incident (as described by an on-looker Prerna Sharma) the utility took three terrifying tumbles before coming to halt thanks to the retaining wall of the empty plot. According to people present at the time of incident, the driver could not keep control of the vehicle after unloading the cargo, as he was reversing the vehicle.

If it would not have been for the retaining wall, the vehicle would have gone tumbling into a building or into a deep gorge. The driver has been injured in the accident but was able to make it out of the vehicle on his two feet. There were no other commuters in the vehicle thankfully.

Is that really our HP Police or just a loyal slave to the Govt.?

Arrested HPU students narrate atrocities of HP Police (VIDEO)
HW talked to the victims of Police brutality and abuse they faced on October 10. They weren’t beaten while the media was present, but they were trashed while being taken to Junga, Shimla. The policemen smoked cigarettes, beedies inside the police vehicle and kept kicking, slapping, and abuse both male and female students. On arrival at Junga, the student asked for water, but the policemen mocked at them. They were made to stay there whole day, but the police didn’t provide them even water.

These students aren’t criminals. Their only offense was that they were peacefully protesting against the anti-student polices, massive, and unnecessary imposition of CrPC 144 at HPU campus for a prolonged period of over three weeks, and against massive fee hikes at HPU. The new SP, Shimla police seems to have no control over the policemen and the officer.

HPU Fee hike protest: 2,000 college and 530 HPU student booked in one month


SHIMLA: Police have registered cases against about 2,000 students of 120 colleges and 530 students of Himachal Pradesh University (HPU) alone for protesting against fee hike in the last one month.

HPU professor Rajinder Singh Chauhan said the authorities have formed a committee which would listen to the demands of booked students. “We cannot do anything about those who have been booked,” he said. Students said many of them have become victims of false cases. Master of tourism administration student Kushal Kaundal said, “I was just supporting the students’ protest. Though I took part in no criminal activity, a case has been registered against me. The case will ruin my career. I will not be able to go abroad. First, the authorities burdened students with fee hike, then they imposed Section 144 on the campus and now they are spoiling our future by booking us.”

Complete Interview with HPU Vice Chancellor, ADN Bajpai

A couple of days ago, two HW members approached the HPU Vice Chancellor, ADN Bajpai, and had a few words regarding some critical issues, such as his attitude towards student grievance and their protest against massive fee hikes, the heaps of garbage inside and around the university, and the girl who was abused and assaulted by HP Police during last lathicharge at HPU Campus.

As expected, we didn’t get clear answer for any of questions regarding the ongoing scenario. Regarding the brutality of police on the protesting student, the VC denied to take any responsibility saying that he had nothing to do with the police haunting the campus. He was of the opinion that the police could use shoot-at-sight orders if required. Also, that to touch a person sitting at such a revered position as that of the VC of an educational institute is VVIP category issue.

However, the students of the university are continuously suffering the lathicharge and abuse of police, but that did not concern the VC at all. Take a look at complete interview (Two Parts).

“What should be covered must be covered. Our culture involves the beauty which should be covered. Women should not trouble others by wearing jeans.
