TOP STORY OF THE DAY
Muzzling fourth pillar of democracy!
2/27/2017 12:41:34 AM
Early Times Report Jammu, Feb 26: Regarded as fourth pillar of democracy, media is up against a powerful and politically well-connected police officer Vijay Singh Choudhary who has overnight taken to social networking to defame family of the Editor of Early Times Newspaper for having exposed his alleged wrongdoings. A story of a rape victim who leveled serious allegation of rape against Choudhary was carried by Early Times. This seems to have unnerved the SHO, who is known for his alleged political, police and bureaucratic connections. The rape victim has pleaded with police higher ups for Justice. The same should not be delayed since Justice delayed is Justice denied. We, at Early Times, promise our readers not to stop our crusade against 'morally corrupt, influential and criminal-minded officers'. But what pains us at Early Times is the mysterious silence of the police higher-ups who despite knowing well the wrongdoings of their officers, especially this 'WhatsApp' SHO, are sitt...

Despite change of guard in SVO, FIR against Babu's kin still unregistered
2/27/2017 12:41:25 AM
Early Times Report Jammu, Feb 26: The system of settling personal scores have now seeped into vigilance organisation, wherein despite change of guard, approved FIR against Babu's kin has still not been registered. According to sources, recently new director vigilance has taken over, but till date he too has ignored the file of babu's kin, which shows that no officer in vigilance department is ready to register an already approved FIR. It is apt to mention here that the father of the Babu also approached the Vigilance Organization with a representation for reconsidering the inquiry against his two family members. "Not only this, a senior most bureaucrat also approached the Vigilance O...

Azad can take a cue from alleged rape incident to highlight it at national level
Beti Bachao, Beti Padao a hoax!
2/27/2017 12:41:17 AM
Early Times Report JAMMU, Feb 26: The tall claims of Prime Minister Narendra Modi about Beti Bachao, Beti Padao have fallen flat in Jammu region as a powerful rape accused police Inspector Vijay Chaudary, who is SHO of Bagh-e-Bahu Police Station, is calling the shots while the victim is running from pillar to post to seek justice. An analyst, while talking to Early Times, said, "Senior Congress leader and the former Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir Ghulam Nabi Azad, who is spearheading the party's campaign against BJP in different poll-bound states, can take a cue from this incident and inform people across the country that in PM Modi's Raaj in Jammu, where his party BJP is an allian...

Mir's Kashmir centric policies spoiling Cong's chances of revival in Jammu
2/27/2017 12:41:04 AM
Early Times Report Jammu, Feb 26: Following foot steps of his political mentor Rahul Gandhi, Pradesh Congress Committee (PCC) chief G M Mir is propogating those policies which are going to be proved counterproductive for the party in the State in general and Jammu region in particular.

Credible sources in the Congress said that recently some Congress leaders issued statement against BJP but Mir took strong objections of those statements. These statements were issu...

State government 'acts' against low rung officials, leaves officers
War against corruption turns out to be half-hearted
2/27/2017 12:40:25 AM
Jehangir Rashid Early Times Report SRINAGAR, Feb 26: Despite many claims in the past the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) government in the state has failed to act against corrupt officers despite the fact that guilt has been established against such officers. The state government recently issued orders for sanction of some government employees. The orders for sanction were issued after these employees were found involved in corrupt practices. So far so good, but the story is too big. Many of the top notch officials manning top positions have so far managed to evade action and as such they continue to rule the roost. On July 1, 2015, the state governmen...

Despite being transferred, IAS Babu harbours grudge against 'victimized employees'
2/27/2017 12:07:54 AM
Early Times Report Srinagar, Feb 26: Even as months have passed since the day this IAS official was transferred from the Education department, there's seems to be no end to his alleged "personal grudge" against the "victimized employees and their union leaders who declined to bow before his revengeful administration, which was hand in glove with the then minister concerned." As of now, even though both the minister and the official have been given new assignments, the official looks unwilling to stop "revengeful tactics" against the poor teaching community, who complain of having spent more time protesting on streets than teaching in classrooms during his tenure. Thousands of teachers ...

For the reasons best known to the Crime Branch officials, the investigation in these serious cases against these high profile constables had not been concluded.

Intra-state dialogue
2/27/2017 12:06:54 AM
Early Times Report JAMMU, Feb 26: A day after NC president Farooq Abdullah revolted against India by siding with seditionists and declaring that the Kashmiri youth were not sacrificing their lives for becoming MPs or MLAs but for their nation, the provincial president of the party (Jammu) Devendra Rana made a highly disturbing statement, which suggested that the NC was planning to create schism among the people of Jammu province.

The unhappy IGP had then activated all his resources at the Centre and in the state to again get posted as IGP...
