Hapur lynching: petitioners can approach trial court, says Supreme Court

first_imgThe Supreme Court on Tuesday gave petitioners in the Hapur lynching case liberty to approach the trial court and draw its attention to statements made by two brothers of the victim before a chief judicial magistrate about the brutal crime allegedly committed by cow vigilantes in June last year.A Vacation Bench led by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi told advocate Vrinda Grover, counsel for petitioner and witness Samaydeen, that instead of directing the Uttar Pradesh police to file a supplementary chargesheet, it would be “appropriate” to permit the petitioners to directly apprise the trial court about the statements made by the brothers, Saleem and Nadeem, under Section 164 of the Code of Criminal Procedure before the Hapur chief judicial magistrate on May 15.Saleem and Nadeem are the brothers of Qasim Qureishi, a 45-year-old meat trader, who died after he took a severe beating along with Samaydeen from cow vigilantes on June 18, last year.The duo were assaulted on the pretext that they were transporting and butchering cows.In August, the Supreme Court had refused to buy the police version that the lynching was a “road rage” incident which turned fatal. The statements made by Samaydeen and some others before the magistrate had shown the case in its true light — a mob lynching premised on a false rumour of cow slaughter.The video footage of the lynching and an expose by the NDTV channel in which one of the accused allegedly talked about the assault and even denying water to one of them had created a furore.last_img read more

To the hills we say

first_imgNestled between the hills, Arunachal Pradesh is a traveller’s paradise. Long trails, waterfalls, fantastic architecture, the state is something to behold. Arunachal Pradesh Tourism Minister Sonam Chambey was in Delhi recently and we caught up with him for a candid conversation and he explained why Arunachal must top our list of next holiday destinations and also what lies next on the to-do list. Here are excerpts of the interview.What steps have you taken to increase tourism footfall in Arunachal Pradesh? Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’The only way to improve tourist footfall is to increase awareness of the destination among the potential tourists. Arunachal Tourism has been making consistent efforts in marketing and promotion by way of participation in major travel fairs, ads in popular magazines etc.Furthermore, to make the stay of the tourists in the state more enjoyable and memorable one, efforts are being made to popularize unique tourism products such as rural/tribal way of life, kiwi farm and apple/orange orchard tours etc. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixWhich places/activities are you promoting within the state?Arunachal Pradesh is a destination, which has something to offer for everyone!  Adventure seekers- white water rafting, mountaineering, trekking, river crossing, mountain biking etc. A treasure trove of culture and heritage- distinct culture and traditions of more than 26 major tribes and over 100 sub- tribes. Spiritual destination with 400-year-old second largest Buddhist monastery in the world, Hindu pilgrimage such as Parasharam kund, Bhismaknagar and Malinithan With 82% forest cover teeming with life, a bio-diversity hotspot with unique flora and fauna is an ideal destination for nature lovers. Niche products such as angling, bird watching, and wellness are also being promoted. We are also planning to sell the state as a destination for creative people- writers, painters, lyricist etcWhat is the kind of tourist footfall seen over the years? Does AP see many foreign tourists as compared to Indians?Arunachal Pradesh is emerging as a favoured destination for tourists. We are witnessing steady flow of both foreign and domestic tourists and the footfall has been increasing over the years. The percentage increase is very encouraging.What kind of development are you looking in for in the state to make travel easier for the tourists?Massive infrastructural development projects such as the Trans-Arunachal Highway, Railways, Airports etc are making rapid progress and will be commissioned shortly. With completion of these projects, travel for tourists will ease to a great extent. Large number of hotels, home stays have come up and many more are coming up to address the accommodation demands of the tourists.You conducted the International Tourism Mart, in January this year; can you tell us the purpose behind it and the response you got from the mart?The ITM in January was held in Guwahati in which Arunachal tourism also participated. It has been a revolutionary initiative of the ministry of tourism. This has put the entire region on global focus as a tourist destination. Arunachal Tourism in particular has reaped a lot of benefits from ITM. The state tour operators have had excellent networking sessions with both domestic as well international buyers and I am certain that this season will see them getting increased business.Arunachal Pradesh was awarded the most favourite upcoming tourist destination by a popular magazine recently; can you tell us what makes AP a unique tourist destination?Arunachal is the largest state in North East India. The geographical diversity of the state with the foothills, hills and the mountains and its distinct flora and fauna, coupled with as many as 26 different tribes, each with separate culture and history makes it a unique destination. With options from adrenaline rushed adventure to relaxed holidaying in the lap of pristine nature, tourists coming to Arunachal are guaranteed a wholesome and a unique experience.last_img read more

Is a HighTech Customer Loyalty System Right For You

first_img Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. 3 min read June 2, 2015 This story appears in the June 2015 issue of Entrepreneur. Subscribe » Q: Are the new high-tech customer loyalty systems worth it?A: The short answer is yes, if only for the customer analytics they provide. With such systems, customers sign up online; after that, you’ll know exactly when they’re in your store, what they bought and how quickly they redeemed the promotional offer that brought them there. For a more detailed discussion, we turned to Flora Delaney, president of Delaney Consulting in Edina, Minn., who works with retailers such as PetSmart on business development. How do I implement a tech-powered loyalty platform?Let’s back up. Before someone becomes a loyal customer, they have to be aware of your business. That means traditional awareness efforts, like advertising, are already in place, and your promotional offers are bringing in new customers. These need to be activated, especially for new retailers, before you can even think of investing in loyalty systems. OK, I’ve got awareness and promotional offers in place. What’s next?Ramp up your customer service. Nothing beats outstanding customer experience for generating loyalty. If you and your staff aren’t consistently anticipating and providing friendly, helpful, competent service, you’re wasting your money thinking that a loyalty system is going to fix things.So I might not even need a loyalty system?Depends. Once the customer service experience is in place and supported by everyone from managers to part-timers, a loyalty system might work to drive more sales. There is no program that will tell you if a 20 percent discount on the next purchase is more effective than a “buy four, get one free” promotion. Through testing, you’ll determine whether your loyalty promotions change behaviors for customers or just reward them for behavior they would do already.Fortunately, the loyalty program’s analytics will quickly help you see if the reward you’re offering is positive for the business. And you can speed up this learning process by making your offers substantial and desirable.Assuming I go the tech route, how do I choose a vendor? When considering vendors, find out how well their system integrates with your POS and CRM systems. Your CRM system could be as simple as MailChimp, Constant Contact or Robly, or more robust, along the lines of Salesforce.com or Zoho.com. Whatever you choose, you want the loyalty program to work with systems you already use.Beyond that, make sure the platform offers and tracks loyalty points and status and lets you print promotional messages on your receipts. Next, work on your marketing plan to determine how you want your loyalty program to interact with your customers. Will you use email or some other message outreach? Last tip: You have to be able to afford the program in the first place, and you should expect to see a positive ROI from a successful system within a year.  Register Now »last_img read more
