Goswami has alleged that first, Ghanshyam was arrested without any basis inasmuch as the FIR in the TRP case did not name him and subsequently, he was given open threats of physical harm if he did not incriminate himself or his organization, i.e. ARG Outlier Pvt Limited. “He was beaten, he was tortured mentally and physically and the state machinery meant to protect him turned into his worst tormentor. The Police Officer handling the interrogation apart from assaulting Ghanshyam, did everything to try and intimidate him into implicating himself and his organisation without any valid basis. In the garb of an investigation, a cruel plot to physically and mentally torture a citizen of India played out within the walls of custody,” Goswami wrote. It is also alleged that when Ghanshyam refused to comply to the pre-medicated script of the officers, he was subjected to custodial violence and was “brutally and barbarically whipped with a chakki belt”. In his letter, Goswmai wrote, “He (Ghanshyam) was put through systematic physical torutre that is against all principles of human rights and a murderous blow to due process. Even as he cried and writhed in pain while the police officer was lashing him, they did not stop and kept the agony and assault going. All officers present were witness to his assault in custody and were partakers and bystanders to the crime, as directed to be committed by the senior police officer present.” Goswami alleged that one of the Police Officers tried to intimidate Ghanshyam by implying to use “other means” to obtain a favourable statement. This fully establishes the criminal and mala-fide intent of the crime branch, he said. “The very fact that the room of torture was prepared prior with the torture tool conclusively establishes the premeditated nature of the crime that was plotted by all the crime branch officers involved in the investigation. As importantly, the very fact that a senior police officer personally gave instructions for the physical torture establishes that the sanction for the human rights abuse was given by the senior officers of the crime branch,” the letter states. Goswami added, “Despite narrating true facts repeatedly, the officers of the Crime Branch on multiple occasions didn’t even allow Ghanshyam to read his own statements and made him forcefully sign them. This reveals a horrendous overreach by the Mumbai Police and a complete trampling of due process in custody. This was an utter abuse of power by the police officers, and patently unconstitutional.” He further wrote that a man, whose name did not even appear in the FIR, was paraded like a terrorist with his face covered in a black cloth as he was taken to court. “Ghanshyam’s personal dignity was shred to smithereens,” Goswami wrote while urging the Commission to urgently intervene in the matter. “We turn to the NHRC to protect the human rights of Ghanshyam Singh who has been tortured, tormented and made to undergo gross mental and physical assault in the custody of the Mumbai Police. The NHRC should protect news agencies whose members have been physically tortured in custody,” the letter read. On October 8, the Mumbai Police Commissioner, Param Bir Singh, claimed to have busted a racket that involved private television channels manipulating their Television Rating Points, or TRP. Ghanshyam Singh was arrested on 10th November in connection with TRP Scam Case, for alleged manipulation of ratings to show the news channel and its programmes as the most watched. He was released on bail by a City Civil and Sessions Court, Greater Bombay, on December 5, 2020. Click Here To Download Letter Read LetterNext Story

iStock/Thinkstock(WASHINGTON) — Immigrants from that caravan that crossed Mexico and drew the attention of President Donald Trump have arrived at a U.S. border post – and are trying to seek asylum.But what happens once they do – and how does the law require they be treated?When an immigrant comes to a U.S. port of entry to request asylum, that person must declare to the customs officer a “credible fear of persecution” in his or her country of origin.Under the 1951 United Nations Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees and the 1967 protocol, and adopted into U.S. law, the U.S. must recognize refugees that fear persecution and are not able to get help from their home country.Anyone who declares they are seeking asylum at a U.S. port of entry is then moved to undergo a secondary interview, during which another customs official must confirm the credible fear claim.The asylum seeker is placed in a holding area before being transferred to a separate detention facility under Immigration and Customs Enforcement custody, while he or she awaits a hearing with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services called adjudication.Adjudicators, who are often judges, decide if the person is allowed to stay in the United States under refugee status.Asylum-seekers may face a variety of legal steps and different judges. The decisions made by different judges or by the same judge with regard to different people from the same countries can vary widely, according to one recent study by Temple University and Georgetown law schools, published in the Stanford Law Review.“The chance of winning asylum was strongly affected by whether or not the applicant had legal representation, by the gender of the immigration judge, and by the immigration judge’s work experience prior to appointment,” the authors said.In that same study, the authors found a correlation between being accepted for asylum and the individual’s education, gender, prior work experience, country of origin – and the time at which the adjudication happened. The authors called this “refugee roulette” because of the unpredictable nature of the process.The number of refugees who can enter the country under the Immigration and Nationality Act comes from the president’s recommendation to Congress.Congress passed the Refugee Act of 1980, which clearly defines refugees under the aforementioned United Nations Convention. The refugee program is run by the Office of Refugee Resettlement, through the Department of State. Each year, the director sends a report to Congress, which is used to determine how much funding will be allocated to the program the next year.A downward trend in asylum acceptance rates was shown between fiscal years 2011 and 2016, according to Syracuse University’s TRAC Immigration study, and asylum seekers may be denied based on the number of applications versus acceptances from their home countries.For example, the study said, asylum seekers from Mexico were denied about 90 percent of the time during the study period.According to the nonprofit Migration Policy Institute, the number of refugees admitted in fiscal year 2016 was almost 85,000. The president proposed cutting that number to allow a maximum of 50,000 refugees to enter the U.S. in fiscal year 2017.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.
johnandersonphoto/iStock(NEW YORK) — A New York federal judge wants a ladder and a visit to the Statue of Liberty before he sentences a woman who has come before his court.The woman in question is Staten Island resident Therese Patricia Okoumou, 44, who was arrested last July 4 for scaling the base of the iconic statue and taking up temporary residence on Lady Liberty’s right foot.Liberty Island, where the statue is located, was evacuated and all visitors were taken off the island via ferry, a National Parks spokesperson said at the time.Footage from helicopters showed her sitting at the base of the statue, occasionally lying on her stomach and kicking her feet up behind her, ABC station WABC reported.Police were seen on the base of the Statue of Liberty, apparently trying to verbally engage with Okoumou before physically apprehending her. Footage from the scene showed the officers wearing harnesses and using ladders to scale the statue’s base.Okoumou was seen holding a t-shirt displaying the words “Rise and Resist” and “Trump Care Makes Us Sick.” She later said that she was protesting President Donald Trump’s family separation policies.She was found guilty in a one-day federal bench trial of a number of misdemeanors including trespassing, disorderly conduct and interfering with government agency functions.U.S. Magistrate Judge Gabriel Gorenstein said in a court order this week that he wants to visit Liberty Island and see the scene of the crime from his own vantage point so he can “better appreciate the risks or hazards created by the defendant’s conduct.”He asked federal prosecutors in Manhattan to arrange the trip, assuming “this can be accomplished without unduly inconveniencing the National Park Service.”“The court would like a ladder to be made available so the court (and counsel if requested) can view, while remaining on the ladder, the surface of the area where the defendant was situated on July 4, 2018,” Gorenstein wrote.Gorenstein will decide whether Patricia Okoumou should go to prison for the stunt.

Contemporary calculations for the flux of extraterrestrial material falling to the Earth’s surface (each event referred to as a “fall”) rely upon either short-duration fireball monitoring networks or spatially limited ground-based meteorite searches. To date, making accurate fall flux estimates from the much-documented meteorite stranding zones of Antarctica has been prohibited due to complicating glacial ice dynamics and difficulties in pairing together distinct meteorite samples originating from the same fall. Through glaciological analysis and use of meteorite collection data, we demonstrate how to overcome these barriers to making flux estimates. Furthermore, by showing that a clear latitudinal variation in fall frequencies exists and then modeling its mathematical form, we are able to expand our Antarctic result to a global setting. In this way, we hereby provide the most accurate contemporary fall flux estimates for anywhere on Earth. Inverting the methodology provides a valuable tool for planning new meteorite collection missions to unvisited regions of Antarctica. Our modeling also enables a reassessment of the risk to Earth from larger meteoroid impacts—now 12% higher at the equator and 27% lower at the poles than if the flux were globally uniform.
