Dr Farhat Khan, the author of a controversial book, was arrested from Pune in Maharashtra on Thursday while she was undergoing dialysis in a hospital, Madhya Pradesh Home Minister Narottam Mishra said.The arrest was made in connection with her book named ‘Collective Violence and Criminal Justice System’, which was kept in the library of the Government Naveen Law College in Madhya Pradesh’s Indore city.The Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP), the student wing of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, has alleged the book being taught to law students has highly objectionable contents against the Hindu community and the RSS.According to police, Khan was suffering from a serious kidney ailment and needed dialysis on a regular basis.“The controversial writer, Farhat Khan, was arrested in Pune when she was undergoing dialysis in a hospital there.Papers (pertaining to the case) were also handed over to her,” Mishra told reporters in Madhya Pradesh capital Bhopal.Authorities have also started a probe into complaints related to another book and if any objectionable content is found, then it will also be linked with the same case, the minister said without elaborating.On December 3, the Indore-based college’s LLM student and ABVP leader Lucky Adiwal (28) filed a complaint against author Khan, the book’s publisher Amar Law Publication, principal of the institution Dr Inam-ur-Rehman and professor Mirza Mojij Baig in the matter.Earlier, an official said the Indore police had traced Khan to Pune and she was served a notice under relevant provisions of the Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPC).“After registering a case five days ago on the issue of the controversial book, we were searching for Dr Frahat Khan and had sent teams to places in Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh,” Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) Rajesh Kumar Singh said.“On the basis of leads, we traced her to Pune and served her a CrPC notice, as per which she was asked to cooperate in the probe and remain present in court at the time of submission of the charge sheet,” he said.The DCP said the Indore-based author was suffering from a serious kidney ailment and needed dialysis on a regular basis.When she went from to Pune from Indore, at that time also she underwent dialysis at a hospital in Sendhwa town on the Maharashtra border, the DCP added.The ABVP had alleged the book contained objectionable content against Hindus, the RSS and promotes religious hatred.The state higher education department had formed a seven-member committee to conduct a probe into the case.A member of the committee said the panel had recorded statements of 250 students and teachers.The higher education department’s commissioner Karmaveer Sharma on Wednesday said the committee has not yet submitted its report.An appropriate action will be taken into the matter on the basis of the probe report, Sharma said.On Tuesday, a local court refused to grant anticipatory bail to the Indore-based law college principal Inam-ur-Rehman and professor Baig, both named as accused in the case.Their lawyer Abhinav Dhanotkar had said the rejection of bail would be challenged in the Indore bench of the Madhya Pradesh High Court.

Two employees of the Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Company Ltd (MSEDCL) were assaulted on December 5 after they cut the power connection to some houses in the Kondhwa area of Pune for non-payment of bills, police said. Police have booked four persons who also threatened to kill the officials.A First Information Report in the case has been registered based on the complaint of Shankar Rondhe, 32, a senior MSEDCL technician with the Kondhwa branch.According to police, the incident took place last Monday near Hajra Complex area in Kondhwa, when Rondhe and his colleague Siddharth Chavan had gone to recover long-pending power bills of consumers in Mithanagar, Bhagyoday Nagar, and Hajra Complex areas.“Around 11 am, Rondhe and Chavan cut the power supply to four houses and removed their electric meters as part of punitive action. When they were returning to their office to submit the meters, they were intercepted by four persons from the Hajra Complex building. The suspects punched and kicked Rondhe for snapping their power supply. They also hit Chavan as he tried to intervene,” said an officer.According to the complaint, the suspects also threatened to kill them if they came to their area again and snatched the power meters they had confiscated.Rondhe and Chavan approached the Kondhwa police after receiving basic treatment at Sassoon General Hospital in Pune. “Based on the initial investigation, a case has been registered against Afzal Kadar Kapadia, Asif Kadar Kapadia, Mohammed Afzal Kapadia, and one more person,” said an officer from Kondhwa police station.Police have invoked various sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) pertaining to assault on public servants, voluntarily causing hurt to public servants and criminal intimidation among others. Police are yet to make arrests in the case.

Good morning! Get your day started with the top reads from today’s edition.Gujarat, Himachal election results todayThe Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is looking to return to power for a seventh consecutive term in Gujarat, riding on the Narendra Modi-wave. All eyes, however, are on the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), which is flying high after its win in the civic polls in Delhi, and hopes to create dents in the BJP bastion. A question remains over the Congress’s fate after its low-key campaign in the state.In Himachal Pradesh, meanwhile, exit polls have predicted a tight race between the BJP and Opposition Congress, with AAP’s bid falling short after it redirected its energies to the Gujarat elections.Head to indianexpress.com for live updates on the counting of votes, analysis and more.Here are five other stories you shouldn’t missThe role, however, comes with its own set of challenges — from an uphill task of selecting a mayor to tackling issues it attacked the BJP on.While the BJP has managed to perform better than exit polls had predicted, would it have retained its control over the MCD had it not been unified? Take a look at our analysis.The Congress, meanwhile, has won just nine out of 250 seats in the MCD, losing its hold over a city it once governed.2. The UP police thought it was a simple open-and-shut case. They believed that a 14-year-old girl, who went missing from her home in Aligarh, was killed and dumped over 90 km away in Agra by her neighbour. Little did the family and police know that the girl was now a married woman, a mother of two children, working mustard fields, attending weddings and religious functions at her new home in Hathras. A chance meeting with a katha vachak (storyteller) blew her cover and the police investigation.3. As tensions continue to mount along the Maharashtra-Karnataka border, the inter-state dispute was echoed in the Parliament on Wednesday. NCP member Supriya Sule accused Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai of “making ad hoc statements” and “conspiring to break Maharashtra”. Ruling BJP MPs from Karnataka took objection to her remarks and pointed out that the matter is in Supreme Court.4. The Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) of the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has unveiled its latest review of the monetary policy. In it, the RBI cut India’s GDP (gross domestic product) growth forecast for the current financial year, maintained the inflation forecast, and raised the repo rate by 35 basis points. Why has RBI taken this hawkish stand? What does the GDP forecast signify about economic recovery? Udit Misra explains. 5. FIFA World Cup 2022: After Morocco’s win over Spain, the team’s star player Achraf Hakimi tore away to the enclosure where his mother was seated. He climbed over the barricade and hugged her, tears rolling down the eyes of both. Not just Hakimi, you could see several other teammates in the embrace of their parents.

Prima facie agree with MAT order on providing ‘third gender’ option in job application forms: HC

The Bombay High Court on Wednesday said that it prima facie agreed with the Maharashtra Administrative Tribunal (MAT), which had directed the state government to create a third gender option for the transgender community, besides male and female, in online application forms for all recruitment under the home department.Chief Justice Dipankar Datta and Justice Abhay Ahuja were hearing a plea filed by the Maharashtra government, challenging MAT’s orders.Besides creating the option for a third gender, the MAT had on November 14 also directed the state government to make necessary changes in its advertisement for recruitment and display the same on its website by November 23. It had further asked the government to fix criteria for physical standards and tests for transgender persons.In its plea, filed through its social justice and special assistance department, the government had said that since it has not yet framed any policy regarding special provisions for the recruitment of trans persons in the police force, it is “extremely difficult” to implement MAT’s directions. It had claimed that due to the “overall nature of duties” to be performed by police constables, who are being recruited, it will not be practical to appoint transgenders to these posts.On Wednesday, Assistant Government Pleader Reena Salunke sought an urgent hearing, stating that the MAT had extended the deadline for receiving applications from trans people till December 8.Maintaining that the court prima facie agreed with the MAT orders, CJ Datta said the government can accept the forms since it was an ongoing process.Referring to Supreme Court orders, the CJ said, “The Supreme Court has already directed all states to make provision for third gender. Just because you (state government) don’t have a policy yet, you cannot deny (job opportunity for transpersons). You have to introduce the changes and make provisions (in rules and regulations) and carry on with the process.” The state is likely to mention the plea on Thursday again.MAT Chairperson Justice Mridula Bhatkar had passed the orders while hearing a plea filed by Arya Vijay Pujari, a trans person. Pujari had alleged that the Satara Police superintendent, on November 6, had issued an advertisement in the media for recruitment of police constables. When Pujari tried to apply, his form did not provide the option for third gender. He could not fill the column and his application was rejected.
