Togadia goes 'missing' as Rajasthan Police comes to arrest him

The Vishwa Hindu Parishad on Monday claimed its international working president Pravin Togadia was missing after a Rajasthan police team came in Ahmedabad to arrest him in relation to an old case. The Ahmedabad crime branch confirmed that Togadia was missing and said they were investigating his whereabouts.

The VHP blamed the Rajasthan Police, saying Togadia went missing after he was detained by them. However, the police team said they could not find the VHP chief at his residence when they came to execute an arrest warrant against Togadia under Section 188 (disobedience to order duly promulgated by public servant) of the IPC in an old case.

But, that was not enough to calm the tempers of the 40 VHP members, who ransacked the Sola police station and blocked traffic on Sarkehj-Gandhinagar highway. They demanded that Togadia be traced immediately. Our International Working President Pravin Togadia is missing since 10 am. The responsibility of his whereabouts and security lies with the administration," PTI quoted VHP's Gujarat unit general secretary Ranchod Bharwad as saying.

Meanwhile, BJP spokesperson Jay Shah claimed Togadia was detained by the Rajasthan Police and was taken away by them. Our leader Pravin Togadia has been detained in an old case and was taken away by the Rajasthan Police from the VHP state headquarters in Paldi area of the city," he said.

A Rajasthan police team came in Ahmedabad to arrest Pravin Togadia in relation to an old case.

However, the Rajasthan Police denied rumours that Togadia was in their custody and said they were returning empty-handed. Togadia was not at all arrested by our team. The police team of Gangapur (in Rajasthan) is returning without executing the arrest warrant, as he (Togadia) was not found in Ahmedabad," said Inspector General of Police, Bharatpur range, Alok Kumar Vashishtha.

Gangapur town is in Sawai Madhopur district of Rajasthan and falls under the jurisdiction of Bharatpur range of the state police. Sola police officials said the Rajasthan police had sought their help in executing the arrest warrant. Rajasthan police today sought our help to execute the warrant against Pravin Togadia, as his residence falls in our area. The warrant, related to section 188 of the IPC, was issued by a sessions court in Gangapur. We took the Rajasthan Police to Togadia's residence but he was not found there," said Sola police station inspector J S Patel.

On January 5, the Ahmedabad Metropolitan court had issued non-bailable warrants (NBWs) against Togadia and 38 others, including BJP MLA from Daskroi (Ahmedabad), Babu Jamnadas Patel , in a 1996 attempt to murder case.

Authors: Ecroaker. com Boosters.

Anita Hassanandani and Karan Patel are one of the best friends of TV industry. Pictured: Anita Hassanandani (on the left) and Karan Patel. Actor Karan Patel has been quite vocal about his dislike for Bigg Boss 11 contestant Hina Khan on Twitter in the past couple of weeks. While the Yeh Hai Mohabbatein actor had termed her "fake to the soul" in a an earlier tweet, this time he took a veiled dig at Hina by suggesting that she's like a Hyena.

I think in the #Wild, the Hyena makes the most #Irritating sound and also is the most #Cunning looking . i mean thats my opinion of the Hyena . By the way i missed #BigBoss11 yesterday, will catch the episode today . Karan tweeted.

In another post, he wrote: "I see the animal kingdom has some unity man, a lot of wild #Cats and #Dogs in protest to save the #Hyena.

Not just Karan, even his Yeh Hai Mohabbatein co-star Anita Hassanandani took to Twitter to shower love on Sakshi Tanwar, Gauahar Khan and Sanjeeda Sheikh, all of whom Hina had looked down upon in the show.

The former Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai actress compared her popularity on social media with Gauahar when she said, "Gauahar ke bohot kam followers hai. Matlab mere aadhe ka aadha bhi nai hai uske paas (Gauahar has really less followers. She doesn't even have one-forth of what I have on Twitter)". In reality, Hina has 124k followers while Gauahar has 2. 17 million followers on Twitter.

Not just that, Hina made an offensive comment on popular TV actress Sakshi Tanwar and had the audacity to call her 'squint eyed. If this was not enough, she even went on to demean Sanjeeda Sheikh and said how she does not look as beautiful on camera as she looks in real life.

With such demeaning comments about other people in the industry, Hina has not just lost respect among her peers but it also eroded her fan following, who loved her whole-heartedly.

Duck waddles again with new 3D-printed foot

  • Published in World

The prosthetic is applied. A duck found without a foot shortly after it hatched is waddling again thanks to a prosthetic leg designed by young scientists.

The 14 and 15-year-old students at Armorel High School in northeastern Arkansas used a 3D printer to create a new foot for the eight-month-old Indian runner duck named Peg.

His owner, Patsy Smith, told TV station KAIT that when she found the bird a turtle had apparently chewed off his foot.

I was just elated. And it's been a wonderful learning experience," she said of the students' desire to help after hearing about Peg's ordeal.

The school's lab director, Alicia Bell, said it took around 30 attempts before pupils Matthew Cook, Darshan Patel and Abby Simmons created a model that was appropriate for Peg.

The very first model, it was not very good, but that was what we were learning. And so from where it is now it is a completely different process," she said.

Ms Smith added: "Not only is it heartwarming, but it's exciting.

I'm just so grateful that there are people that truly care, and they've gone out of their way to do everything they can to make it as comfortable for the duck.
