Mandir showdown leads to multiple charges

first_imgA dispute between members of two families in Patentia, West Bank Demerara, which escalated on April 14 at the Patentia Mandir has led to multiple charges over threatening behavior.At the Wales Magistrate’s Court on Monday, Danmattie Sooknauth, 58, of Patentia Housing Scheme was placed on self-bail after she entered a not guilty plea on the charge of abusive language to Vindawattie Sookram. The married housewife who has three children, will return to court on July 29.Meanwhile, Sugnauth Sookram, 31, son of Vindawattie pleaded not guilty to the charge which alleged that on April 14 he unlawfully assaulted Roopnand Sooknauth [husband of Vindawattie] at the Patentia Mandir. The defendant who is a taxi driver was placed on $10,000 bail and will make his next court appearance on July 23.According the Prosecution’s case, the altercations between the two families exploded after a young man attached to the Sooknauths reportedly confiscated a quantity of Parsad [Hindu sweetmeat] during a Navratri observance at the Patentia Mandir. This caused a row between the two families where abusive language was hurled and some individuals assaulted.Vidawattie Sookram was previously accused of physically assaulting Danmattie Sooknauth while Roopchand Sugnauth was charged on April 25 for assault and bodily harm.last_img read more

first_imgThe Collie had to be put downA Donegal man has pleaded guilty to an animal welfare offence after he failed to seek prompt veterinary attention for his collie dog when it was run over by a van and trailer. Joe McBride, from Murleog, Downings  was fined €200 and ordered to pay costs of €152 to the ISPCA after admitting an offence under the Animal Health and Welfare Act 2013 at Letterkenny District Court.The case arose from separate visits to the home of McBride by the ISPCA during December 2014, during which ISPCA inspector Kevin McGinley saw a male black and white collie dog that was extremely lame.The dog was seized by the inspector and taken for veterinary assessment. X-rays revealed that, in addition to being underweight, the Collie had a fracture to its left leg, a dislocated right hip and displacement on the left side of the pelvis.The dog was later put down based on veterinary advice as there was no hope of it ever achieving pain-free function of its hind legs.The court heard that McBride and his daughter had brought the dog to a vet in December 2014 after it had been run over by a van and trailer.Recommendations by the vet for further veterinary assessment and probable surgery or euthanasia were not accepted by McBride. An alternative option of conservative therapy was agreed, whereby the dog was to be kept extremely confined and on pain killers for a number of weeks.However, the dog was never brought back to the vet and was wandering loose when the ISPCA called to McBride’s property on separate occasions.“Animal owners have a responsibility to their pets,” said inspector McGinley.“When accidents occur, it is up to the owner to seek prompt veterinary attention and to follow through on whatever actions are recommended by their vet.”McBride was previously convicted of failing to remove dead animals from his property.In 2012, gardaí were tipped off by animal welfare officers about possible cases of cruelty on McBride’s farm.Sgt Christy Galligan told Letterkenny district court that he had called to the farm in February and March 2010 where he found a lame goat in poor condition, a dead lamb and the skeleton of a sheep.The court was also told a number of other animals were in poor condition.McBride was ordered to pay €250 to the ISPCA and to allow for another inspection of his farm later that year. FARMER GUILTY OF NEGLECT AFTER SHEEP DOG HIT BY CAR LEFT TIED UP was last modified: March 4th, 2016 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:COLLIEcrueltyDOGdonegalDowningsletterkennylast_img read more

first_imgDONEGAL County Council chair Nicholas Crossan had described as a ‘storm in a teacup’ criticism of a decision to give all 37 councillors Samsung Galaxy tablets at a cost to the council of €12,500.He says the new devices will help councillors streamline their work, communicate with officials and constituents by email and allow for all the council agendas to be online rather than paper.Councillors were also given €60 printers. “Over the next five years, they will certainly have earned their keep. It will be much handier for our council work,” said Cllr Crossan.He said it was “completely understandable” that the council wanted to streamline council business in this way.He said the matter was not raised or discussed in the council today, adding: “I think it is just a storm in a tea cup really.”  NEW COMPUTERS FOR COUNCILLORS ‘A STORM IN A TEACUP’ was last modified: July 28th, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Donegal councillorsSamsungtabletslast_img read more

Discontent over choice of BJP candidates

first_imgDiscontent has emerged at several places in Rajasthan over the candidates fielded by the BJP for the Lok Sabha election without obtaining feedback from the party workers. Though the party has tried to “play safe” by retaining as many as 14 sitting MPs in its first list for the State, several candidates are facing protests in almost all of their election meetings.The retention of 14 MPs, including four Union Ministers, in the BJP’s first list announced on March 21 was earlier perceived as a signal of the party being confident of victory in the State. The BJP has announced candidates for 16 of the 25 seats in Rajasthan, while the list of Congress candidates is still awaited.Infighting in the BJP’s Jaipur unit has been visible in the marches, road shows and meetings of Ramcharan Bohra, who is seeking re-election. The supporters of former Bagru MLA Kailash Verma raised slogans against him at the party’s Vijay Sankalp Yatra in the presence of senior leaders here on Sunday.Resignation over choiceSupporters of some other leaders also held Mr. Bohra responsible for their defeat in the recent Assembly elections. Veteran Rajput leader in Bikaner Devi Singh Bhati has quit the BJP in protest against the decision to give a ticket to Union Minister Arjun Ram Meghwal, while alleging that his political activities had harmed the party.The candidature of sitting MP Sumedhanand Saraswati from Sikar was opposed by a rival group of party workers in the BJP’s local unit on Monday. Two groups of party workers raised slogans and scuffled with each other at a meeting of the district’s eight Assembly segments. Zila Parishad member Jagdish Lora alleged that Mr. Saraswati had paid no attention to his constituency.In the Jhunjhunu Lok Sabha constituency, the BJP’s decision to drop its only woman MP Santosh Ahlawat and replace her with Narendra Khinchar has not gone down well with party workers. While a section of the party cadre believes that it was done to reduce the stature of the rising Jat leadership, Ms. Ahlawat has announced that she would not contest the election as a rebel candidate.The Nagaur and Rajsamand seats, where the candidates are yet to be fielded, are in the eye of a storm because of the local party workers opposing the plans to nominate Union Minister C.R. Chaudhary and erstwhile Jaipur royal family member Diya Kumari, respectively. The Mewar Kshatriya Mahasabha has demanded that only a local Rajput candidate be fielded from Rajsamand.Second listThe candidates for the remaining nine Lok Sabha seats are likely to be announced shortly after a meeting of the State’s core committee headed by the BJP’s campaign in-charge and Union Minister Prakash Javadekar in New Delhi.last_img read more
