On Tuesday, Delhi Poice detained a Jammu Man in connection with the murder of senior National Conference leader Trilochan Singh Wazir, who was found dead in a rented west Delhi apartment six days ago. Identifying the arrested accused as Rajender Chaudhary alias Raju Ganja, a driver by profession, the police said he is suspected to be involved in the conspiracy to murder NC leader Trilochan Singh Wazir. Chaudhary was present in the flat on the day of the murder, a senior police official said.
The driver was detained by the west district police that was initially investigating the case. However, since the investigation into the high-profile case was transferred to the crime branch, a police officer said his custody would be given to the crime branch team.
In a press release, Prashant Gautam, Additional DCP West, Delhi, said, “We arrested and accused Raju in Jammu, involved in the death of ex J&K MLC Trilochan Singh Wazir. He disclosed that four persons were present during the incident on September 3, where Wazir was shot dead. The victim was given sedatives with food”.

During the investigation, the police also came to know that earlier, the murderers had planned to kill TS Wazir in July, but at that time, they failed in executing their plan.
Wazir had reached Delhi on September 2 and was staying with Harpreet Singh and his friend Harmeet Singh, a native of Jammu, at their rented flat. Both Harpreet and Harmeet are absconding, and several police teams have been formed to trace them. Harpreet’s mobile phone was found switched off, but the police are trying to analyse both suspects’ call records, and raids are being conducted at their possible hideouts. In a post on Facebook, Harmeet Singh has claimed that he had killed Wazir after firing at his head following a heated argument, and there was no role of Harpreet in the murder. Harmeet claimed that Wazir had planned to kill him and his son.
First Wine Now Bars: Will Mafias Take Over Every Trade in J&K?
The Wine Association of Jammu constantly raised their voice against the new excise policy. Still, due to the influence of mafias from other states, the UT introduced the policy. A similar case is happening with the bars of Jammu, which have been closed for the past 15 days. The UT Government has asked the bar’s owners/operators to get their license to renew, and for the renewal, the government has issued several guidelines.
There is a guideline that all the bars and hotels have bars to have proper parking space among the guidelines. However, around 80% of bars and restaurants don’t have a parking facility. So the question arises: where was the government when the plan for such bars/restaurants was passed?
Regarding the same JK Media executive talked with the Wine Association President. While speaking, he said, “these bars have been established for many years, and now the government is asking them to make parking facilities. How’s this possible? The NOC procedure is only for the first time when the licenses for the bar has to issue. The UT government is trying to destroy J&K. We demand that the government revise the excise policy”.

J&K Sees a Huge Jump in Positivity Rate Since Mid-August
Coronavirus cases in Srinagar have shown over a two hundred per cent increase since mid-August as the positivity rate has gone up from 0.5 per cent to 1.34 per cent, reveals official data. This massive jump in positivity rate comes when reports of violation of COVID Appropriate Behavior (CAB) pour in from different areas of the district.
Nodal Officer COVID mitigation Srinagar Owais Mushtaq said that the positivity rate has jumped from 0.5 per cent to 1.35 per cent since mid-August this year. He informed that Srinagar has 773 active cases, 54 are under hospital quarantine, and the rest are in-home quarantine.
The district administration maintains records of the COVID19 cases daily, and then the data is also used to culminate records to assess the COVID19 situation. In just seven days, Srinagar reported 474 positive cases, the highest among all-district. Moreover, the daily data issued by authorities reveal that Srinagar has said the highest number of cases among all districts of Kashmir during these seven days.

Mushtaq stressed that CAB is a must to avoid or minimise the predicted third wave of coronavirus. “Most of the people are seen without facemasks in markets and public transport. At some markets, social distancing is also going for a toss,” he said.
