While a commotion within the department had been anticipated ever since he took over the reins of the department – with teachers beginning to come to school in time even before inspections began in schools – fearing a backlash as had often been witnessed during his DGSE days, the Education Secretary’s address today clearly indicated that principals and DEOs should be prepared to take the onus of their schools and district education (rather than blaming everything on teachers) as was being done earlier. While in a marked change from the status quo already prevailing within the department, Krishan Kumar shared his phone number with all teachers during the EDUSAT session, and addressed all SNIPPETS Hit by train, woman dies Jalandhar: A 34-year-old woman was killed after she was hit by a moving train near Adda Hoshiarpur on Saturday.

The Government Railway Police (GRP) officials said the incident came to light at around 8.30 am after. The woman was reportedly coming from a clinic after taking medicine and while crossing the lines, was hit by the train. However, cops are also probing if it was a suicide case. After the post-mortem, the body was handed over to the victim’s family.

The error came to the notice of Judge Parminder Singh Grewal, who had four days ago passed orders, saying his court will make a reference to the High Court with a request to initiate contempt of court proceedings against SHO Basti Bawa Khel Naresh Kumar and ASI Mulakh Raj. The ASI has even admitted his guilt in a written application in the court, but the city police officials are yet to reprimand them or even send them to the police lines for the time-being. Even as a cop attached with a police station functions as Naib Court and liaisons between the court and the officials concerned, the city police officials claim to have got no information till date. ACP West Kailash Chander said, “I got to know this from media reports. I am yet to check up the matter with the SHO who was on Governor duty today.” Likewise Police Commissioner Praveen Kumar Sinha said, “I have not been informed by anyone. I have checked the news report and have asked the ACP to apprise me of the facts. He is yet to revert to me. I will take any action after that.” The case pertained to a bail SRK praise has boosted our career, say Nooran sisters Jalandhar: Dreaming of having enough money for his marriage forced a 24-year-old would-be groom to indulge in drug delivery, resulting in his landing in jail a few days before the event.

The prime factors which the Education Secretary laid stress on included quality education, increased educational activities, revival of the Parho Punjab Wadho Punjab programme, teacher training programmes, early presence of teachers, rationalisation, receipt of books, etc. While the teacher training programmes within the department have been suffering for a long time, Kumar has indicated a revival of the programmes, along with the starting of mobile apps regarding all components shortly. While head teachers have been asked to register their presence at schools by 7.45 am, the Education Secretary also asked for the revival of quality education as well as impressive morning assemblies.

It is a known fact that the sisters are now a household name, but ask them and they say that Shah Rukh expressing that he specially wanted a song of Nooran sisters was the biggest compliment for them and something they could never forget. The song ‘Butterfly’ in Shah Rukh Khan’s upcoming movie “When Harry met Sejal” that has been sung by Nooran sisters was launched by Badshah in Ludhiana where the sisters had accompanied him. Before coming to Punjab, Khan had also tweeted and showed his love for Nooran sisters, “Butter Chicken, But- Nooran sisters along with Shahrukh Khan.

And recently in an interview Continued on page 2 c m y b petition filed by one Sajan Kumar in an FIR lodged against him at the Basti Bawa Khel police station pertaining to a theft and NDPS case lodged against him on May 11 last. He had filed a bail petition upon which the court issued a notice to the state and had also directed the SHO/investigating officer to produce the police file. On the next date of hearing on July 1, ASI Mulakh Raj produced the investigation record before the court. When the court perused the investigation record, it came to the notice that two blank signed papers, allegedly signed by accused Sajan Kumar along with its carbon copies duly signed on the next page and another blank paper signed by non-petitioner/accused Lovely Kumar along with its one signed carbon copy, were found annexed in the investigation file. The court found that the investigation file had not been found to be properly indexed and no page marking of the investigation file had been done by the investigating officer ASI Mulakh Raj. The court had observed that the action was clearly meant to implicate the two accused in the case and amounted to vitiating the sanctity of the investigation process.
