In a recent development, a court in Prayagraj has sentenced Atiq Ahmed, a well-known gangster turned politician, along with two others, to rigorous life imprisonment. The verdict was pronounced after they were found guilty of the 2007 kidnapping case of Umesh Pal. Pal was an eyewitness in the murder case of BSP MLA Raju Pal. The court has also acquitted seven others, including Atiq’s brother Ashraf.

The sentencing of Atiq Ahmed and his accomplices comes after a long-drawn legal battle. They were found guilty of abducting Umesh Pal, who was a crucial witness in the murder case of Raju Pal. The court’s decision to award rigorous life imprisonment to the three accused has been welcomed by many, who see it as a step towards justice for the victim and his family.

In another development, earlier today, the Supreme Court refused to entertain Ahmed’s plea seeking protection in connection with the case. The apex court directed Ahmed’s lawyer to approach the High Court with his grievances instead. This decision has come as a setback for Ahmed, who was seeking protection from possible harm in jail.

The verdict in the case is being seen as a significant victory for the judiciary and the law enforcement agencies, who have been working tirelessly to bring the accused to justice. It sends a strong message to anyone who thinks they can get away with heinous crimes like kidnapping and murder. The case has also highlighted the need to protect witnesses in such cases, who play a crucial role in ensuring justice is served.

The victims, identified as Mahender, Akash, and Rampal, encountered the unexpected visitor.

Following numerous sightings reported by residents, forest department officials managed to capture the wild cat and relocate it to the Rajaji National Park in Uttarakhand.

There’s a new sneaky trick scammers are using at ATMs, and it’s pretty clever (but not in a good way). So, this lady in Delhi, Apoorva, went to withdraw some cash from an ATM in Mayur Vihar. She pops in her card, and bam, it gets stuck! Classic move, right?

Now, here’s where it gets interesting. A guy hanging around offers to help and points her to a number written on the machine. She calls it, thinking it’s the bank’s helpline. But surprise, surprise, it’s not! The person on the other end pretends to be a bank agent and tells her to follow some steps to get her card out.

Long story short, she follows the instructions, and the machine goes “Out Of Service.” Meanwhile, the scammer asks for her phone number and convinces her to leave the card in the machine. After a while, she gets a message saying Rs. 21,000 has been debited from her account. Ouch!

Here’s the deal: scammers are using a liquid to make your card stick in the machine. Then, they’ve already written down a fake helpline number for you to call. When you call, they pretend to help but actually scam you. Sneaky, right?

So, if this ever happens to you, don’t fall for it! Dial 100 and get help from the police ASAP. Stay safe out there!
