Vikas Dubey killed by STF. Was this a planned encounter?

Dinesh Kumar

Gangster Vikas Dubey died in an encounter on Friday morning while Uttar Pradesh Special Task Force (STF) was bringing him back from Madhya Pradesh to Kanpur.

One of the vehicles of Uttar Pradesh Special Task Force (STF) that was bringing back gangster Vikas Dubey from Madhya Pradesh to Kanpur overturned near Barra area of the city on Friday morning. The accident happened at around 7am.In this incident Vikas has been injured along with an STF sub inspector and two constables who were with him in the vehicle.

"The encounter took place in the Panki area of Kanpur when a police team was bringing vikas dubey to Kanpur from Faridabad on transit remand. The police vehicle had a flat tyre. Taking advantage of the situation, dubey tried to flee after snatching the pistol of a policeman".

Vikas opened fire at the policemen accompanying him, injuring two Special Task Force (STF), and was killed in the ensuing exchange of fire.

The policemen fired at him "in self-defence".Dubey was taken to the hospital, where he was declared dead by the doctors.

 Uttar pradesh Police have taken custody of gangster Vikas Dubey, wanted for killing eight policemen and arrested from Madhya Pradesh's Ujjain earlier today. He is being taken via road back to UP. Dubey, who was on the run since last Thursday when he and his men ambushed a police party and killed 8 cops, was arrested from near the Mahakal temple. His closest partner Amar Dubey was killed in an encounter by police on Wednesday. The same day, CCTV footage from a hotel in Faridabad showed a masked man suspected to be him. However, he ran away before police arrived.
His partner mishra, meanwhile, was taken in remand from Faridabad on Wednesday when police raided the premises of a hotel after its CCTV footage showed a masked man suspected to be Vikas Dubey. According to the police, they were bringing Mishra to Kanpur on transit remand when their vehicle had a flat tyre. During this time, the accused tried to ran away and shot by police to dead.

Senior IPS officer Amitabh Thakur tweeted, "We couldn't arrest Vikas Dubey and he surrendered in Ujjain. We couldn't arrest him even in such a case and he managed to travel to a distant place. I think this aspect needs to be enquired into. It is possible that tomorrow he might get killed while trying to escape from police custody, thus closing the Vikas Dubey chapter, but I feel this episode has brought to light the muck in UP police. There is a need to take strict and honest action against all those found guilty."

 Who goes to temple when police is behind you ?

Dubey was able to travel without any difficulties despite a large police force checking people and vehicles on the roads. "Who will go to 'Mahakal' temple for praying in a situation where the person is concerned about their safety," an aggrieved Kamlakant Mishra said.

After arrest in Ujjain, Vikas Dubey confesses, "Main Vikas Dubey hoon, Kanpur wala."

The Realme 5 is the first phone that had came with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 SoC.This processor sits between the Snapdragon 660 and Snapdragon 675.

Realme 5 is the first phone with four cameras to be priced under Rs. 10,000 in India.It has a 12-megapixel primary sensor and 2-megapixel depth sensor, 8-megapixel wide-angle camera with a 119 degree field of view, and a 2-megapixel macro camera for closeup shots. The primary camera has an f/1.8 aperture and PDAF, so focusing is quick. The ultra-wide-angle camera lacks autofocus but you can use Nightscape with it. The macro lens has a very narrow aperture of f/2.8, so it's not good for low light shots.


The Realme 5 is available in three variants — 3GB of RAM with 32GB of storage (Rs. 9,999); 4GB of RAM with 64GB of storage (Rs. 10,999); and the one we have, which has 4GB RAM with 128GB of storage (Rs. 11,999).

Phones under 20k

Moto One Fusion+

The Motorola One Fusion+ is a welcome addition to the sub Rs. 20,000 price segment. While the price is very competitive, Motorola has not skimped in terms of hardware. The Motorola One Fusion+ sports a big 6.5-inch display without a notch. This panel is HDR10 certified and has very good viewing angles. It also has a loud bottom-firing speaker that compliments the crisp display. Powering the Motorola One Fusion+ is the very capable Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G SoC. It scored very well in our benchmarks. The One Fusion+ is available in one configuration only, with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. You do have the option to expand storage further using the hybrid dual-SIM tray. Motorola has also packed in a 5,000mAh battery, and this phone comes with an 18W TurboCharger.

It has a 64-megapixel primary sensor, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide angle camera, a 5-megapixel macro camera, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor.

Video recording maxes out at 4K and the phone does a good job at stabilising footage in the daytime.

Redmi Note 9 Pro Max

The Redmi Note 9 Pro Max is the latest smartphone to join this list of the best phones under Rs. 20,000. When Xiaomi launched this smartphone, it was priced starting under Rs. 15,000, but the GST hike has caused prices to go up. The Redmi Note 9 Pro Max shares a lot of hardware with the Redmi Note 9 Pro – both phones sport 6.67-inch displays which are good for video watching but not for single-handed use.

The Redmi Note 9 Pro Max has a side-mounted fingerprint scanner that lets you unlock it quickly. Sticking to current trends, the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max has four rear cameras but the module protrudes quite a bit. The Redmi Note 9 Pro Max is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G SoC. Xiaomi offers it in three variants: the base variant has 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage and is priced at Rs. 16,999; the middle one offers 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage and is priced at Rs. 18,499. The top variant is priced at Rs 19,999 which is barely under the upper limit for this list.

The Redmi Note 9 Pro Max packs in a 5,020mAh battery and delivers very good battery life. It also fared very well in our HD video loop test. Xiaomi bundles a 33W charger in the box and this phone charges more quickly than the Redmi Note 9 Pro. The camera performance of the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max is quite good, but photos tend to be oversharpened at times. Low-light camera performance is average but Night mode helps capture better output.

Poco X2

The first smartphone to come out of Poco after it became an independent entity is the Poco X2. The is not the successor of the Poco F1, but does a lot of things right in its own way. It is tall and has a big 6.67-inch display with a 20:9 aspect ratio. The panel also boasts of a 120Hz refresh rate which isn't very common at this price. The Poco X2 has a dual-camera punch-hole on the front, and a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, both of which are slowly becoming more common. The Poco X2 feels large and bulky. It is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G which is a powerful chip that can handle gaming quite well.

The Poco X2 has multiple variants: 6GB of RAM with 64GB of storage, 6GB of RAM with 128GB of storage, and 8GB of RAM with 256GB of storage. The prices of the Poco X2 have climbed since its launch and the base variant now starts at Rs. 17,499 while the middle one is priced at Rs 18,499 and the top variant is still at Rs. 20,999.

Poco has packed in a 4,500mAh battery and you get a 27W charger in the box. This phone sports a quad-camera setup at the back and we noticed that the photo quality in daylight is quite good. Low-light photo quality was also relatively impressive but not as detailed as during the day. Low-light video quality wasn't as good.

Realme 6 Pro

The Realme 6 Pro was launched alongside the Realme 6, and both smartphones have made it to our lists at their respective prices. The Realme 6 Pro has a 6.6-inch display with a dual-camera hole-punch for the selfie cameras. It is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G SoC just like the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max. The device is well designed but is a little slippery as it has a glass back. This phone is also a little heavy at 202g. One unique feature of theRealme 6 Pro is its 90Hz screen refresh rate. It also has a side-mounted fingerprint scanner that is easy to reach and quick to unlock the phone.

The Realme 6 Pro is offered in three variants: 6GB of RAM with 64GB of storage, 6GB of RAM with 128GB of storage, and 8GB of RAM with 128GB of storage. The base variant starts at Rs. 17,999 while the other variants are priced at Rs. 18,999 and Rs 19,999 respectively.

There's a quad-camera setup at the back. Camera performance was decent in daylight and for close-ups, but low-light camera performance needs some improvement. The Realme 6 Pro has a 4300mAh battery which isn't as big as some of the other phones in the list but it delivered excellent battery life when we reviewed it.

Samsung Galaxy M31

Samsung has been focusing on the sub Rs. 20,000 market with its Galaxy M-series, and the Galaxy M31 is currently the best in the lineup. This model has a 6.4-inch full-HD+ AMOLED display that delivers vivid colours and very good viewing angles. There is a quad-camera setup at the back with a 64-megapixel primary camera. It also packs a big 6,000mAh battery and a capable Exynos 9611 SoC.

Samsung offers the Galaxy M31 with 6GB of RAM and two storage options, 64GB and 128GB. Prices start at Rs. 16,499 for the base model while the higher model is priced at Rs. 18,999. The big battery offers fantastic battery life and this phone could easily go on for two days. The cameras are good in daylight, the wide-angle one offers a wider field of view but loses out on details compared to the primary camera. We did notice that the camera AI can go overboard in terms of saturating colours. The primary camera is a little slow while focusing and you can see minor grain in the output. With Night mode enabled, the Galaxy M31 delivers better low-light shots. We found video stabilisation to be average as well.

The Exynos 9611 SoC is not as powerful as the Snapdragon 720G powering the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max and the Realme 6 Pro but it is capable of handling day-to-day tasks with ease. The battery is the highlight of the Galaxy M31 as it can outrun most devices on this list.

Realme X2

The Realme X2 is one of the older phones on this list, but has managed to stand its ground all this while.

The phone is manageable for day-to-day use and isn't as big as the Poco X2 or the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max. The Realme X2 has a quad-camera setup at the back and comes in a variety of colours.

Realme has packed in a 4000mAh battery and ships a 30W fast charger in the box which makes charging quick. The Realme X2 could handle day-to-day tasks and gaming very easily, and the battery lasted us over a day and a half.

Poco F1

The Poco F1 is one of the oldest devices on this list but has managed to hold on because of the kind of performance it delivers for the price. It is powered by the flagship processor of 2018, the Snapdragon 845. This device has seen multiple price cuts but pricing hasn't been stable in recent times. Regardless of that, you will still be able to buy all variants of the Poco F1 for less than Rs. 20,000 which is still good value for your money.

The Poco F1 has a big notch that cuts into its 6.18-inch display. It also packs in a 4,000mAh battery which delivers very good battery life. The top variant with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage is currently very affordable at Rs. 17,999.

Since the Poco F1 is an older model, it only packs a dual-camera setup at the back. Low-light photos were strictly average, while daylight camera performance was better. The Poco F1 can record 4K video but has an 8-minute cap which feels restrictive.

Best phones under 10,000

[1] Realme C3

Realme C3 is priced under Rs. 8,000 but is modern enough to compete with several other devices priced between Rs. 8,000 and 10,000. It has a relatively powerful and recent MediaTek Helio G70 processor, a 5000mAh battery, and a 6.5-inch HD screen. You get a 12-megapixel rear camera with a depth sensor, and a 5-megapixel front camera. This is one of the more stylish options on our list too. On the downside, there's oddly no fingerprint sensor, and you have to make do with a Micro-USB port which is now outdated.

The base variant has 3GB of RAM with 32GB of storage, but there's also an option with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage which is still well within budget. In our testing we found that modern games ran well at medium to high settings, and the cameras were decent in daylight.

[2] Realme Narzo 10A

Interestingly, Realme's brand new Narzo 10A is virtually identical to the Realme C3. The rear panel has a very different style.It has a relatively powerful and recent MediaTek Helio G70 processor, a 5000mAh battery, and a 6.5-inch HD screen. You get a 12-megapixel rear camera with a depth sensorand also gets a 2-megapixel macro camera on the back. It costs just Rs. 500 more than the base Realme C3, which makes it a solid recommendation if you don't need more RAM or storage.
Review by Trakin Tech

[3] Redmi 8

It has a relatively weak Qualcomm Snapdragon 439 SoC but you get 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, plus a 5000mAh battery and a 6.22-inch HD screen. One interesting touch is the modern USB Type-C port. This device looks very slick and is available in red, green, blue, and black.

This phone runs Xiaomi's MIUI which is unfortunately riddled with ads and promotional notifications. We found its performance good enough for day-to-day use but not good enough for gaming. The cameras struggled in low light, but this is acceptable considering our tight budget.
There's only one configuration, currently priced at Rs. 9,499.
Review by Trakin Tech

[4] Realme 5

Although this model is not the most recent, it still offers pretty good value. The Realme 5
has distinctive crystal pattern with gradient finishes in either blue or purple on the rear, and it feels well-built. Battery life is excellent thanks to the 5000mAh capacity, and the Snapdragon 665 makes this a good workhorse. 

You get a12-megapixel primary rear camera that's reasonably good except in low light. There's also a depth sensor, an 8-megapixel wide-angle camera, and a 2-megapixel macro camera which is fun to use but not great in terms of quality.

The base variant of the Realme 5 offers 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, and slips in just under our Rs. 10,000 cutoff. The other two variants are worth considering if you can spend more.

[5]  Vivo U10

The Vivo U10 is not very recent, but it's worth considering for its features and specifications. You get a Snapdragon 665 processor, 5000mAh battery, and three rear cameras. This phone runs Android 9 but an update to Android 10 with the latest version of Vivo's Funtouch OS is expected. The 6.35-inch display is quite good and everyday tasks ran smoothly. Battery life is very good but the cameras are just average.

The base variant of the Vivo U10 with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage is available for under Rs. 10,000.
Review by Trakin Tech

[6] Realme U1

While this phone was officially launched in 2018, it can now be found for under Rs. 10,000 which makes it suitable for our guide. You'll get a 6.3-inch full-HD screen, which is bright and crisp. Very few other options at this level have such a high resolution. The MediaTek Helio P70 SoC will get you through your daily routine, and the primary rear camera works well in the daytime. Camera features are limited and there's only a depth sensor on the rear. 

You can get this phone with 3GB of RAM and 32GB or 64GB of storage within our budget, and the top-end variant with 4GB of RAM plus 64GB of storage costs Rs. 10,499. Do keep in mind that our ratings are assigned at the time each phone is reviewed, so they might not be directly comparable with the scores of more recently launched products.

The processor isn't very powerful but there's a 5000mAh battery and three rear cameras including a 13-megapixel primary camera which performed well in daylight, and a 5-megapixel wide-angle camera. The review of the phone is not an unboxing beacuse Samsung doesn't send their phones to Trakin Tech for review.

Empowering students to end the menace of ragging.

It is vital to encourage students to say ‘no’ against ragging within universities to minimise the adverse consequences faced by students and their families, a forum on ragging was told earlier this week.
Prevail to betray me to unveil your evil.
                                           P.S. Jagadeesh Kumar

Speaking during a webinar on ‘Eradicating Ragging and Violence from Universities and Higher Education Institutes’ organised by the Coalition Against Violence and Harassment in Universities, Senior Lecturer, Department of English, Kelaniya University, Dr. Prabha Manuratne said that most universities sweep ragging under the carpet simply because of the fear that the name of the university will be tarnished. The internal politics within the universities which has weakened the ethical standards of these academic institutions, has enabled students to enlist in political movements and not abide by the universities’ laws and regulations.

She also said that several social crises affecting universities where the level of violence has taken a more prominent place in the recent past has led the academics and administration of universities to ignore ragging.

“There are many reasons for ragging from a psychological point of view,” Co-Facilitator, Coalition Against Violence and Harassment in Universities, Professor Harendra de Silva said.

He said there are several attributes to the phenomenon of ragging such as (1) the degree of respect that senior students want from their juniors; (2) childhood trauma faced by students which leads them to be violent in their youth; (3) witnessing political and social violence which is common in a country which has religious, gender and ethnic inequalities; (4) personality disorders; (5) the condition of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) which means that some students who have been traumatised during their freshman years later tend to act the same way towards their juniors ; and (6) the effect of ‘Stockholm Syndrome’ in which the raggers prevent victims from revealing their experience by acting nicely to them for the rest of the university period.

Information from recent research emphasises that most of the perpetrators of ragging are males. However, many female senior students who oppose ragging have to unwillingly participate due to their inability to overpower their male counterparts.

Center for Poverty Analysis Director Wijaya Jayathilake said that due to the gap between the staff and students in the early period of their university education, students hesitate to seek assistance for instances of ragging which in turn make victims susceptible to mental breakdowns. He also said that the inadequate information about ideas of gender provided by the universities during the orientation period and the lack of mental and physical stability within students to embrace and listen to these discussions on gender make them potential victims for sexual harassment during the ragging period.

The Prohibition of Raging and Other forms of Violence in Educational Institutions Act passed in 1998 addresses violence within educational institutions and a copy of the Act is provided by the University Grants Commission to every university entrant.
Verite Research’s Deputy Head of Legal Research and international human rights lawyer Malsirini De Silva said that due to the lack of the usage of the Act, the shortcomings of the Act cannot be identified and amendments cannot be made. “Like most Acts, we have it to address these types of problems, but we are not using it,” she said.

Ruhuna University Vice Chancellor Sujeewa Amarasena said they undertook the following principles to lessen the incidents of ragging within their university: 

(1) Educating the staff, both academic and non-academic, and students on the harmful effects of ragging; 
(2) Educating students on the long-term effects that ragging has on a student and his or her family; 
(3) Re-engineering student union offices by deploying digital security appliances for monitoring purposes; and 
(4) Strict enforcement of laws and regulations within the university.

He also said that they have identified low-income students within their university and with the support from academic staff, special scholarships have been given to them to help them with their studies so that they won’t be dependent on student unions. They also ensure that all students within the university are fully engaged in various types of activities including sports, cultural activities, additional learning activities and diverse discussions on democratic politics which enable them to express their ideas and opinions openly.

“If all universities can adopt these processes and keep the students fully engaged in various activities and adopt a social movement against ragging, then ragging could be eliminated from higher education institutions,” he said.
Several ragging victims also took to the webinar platform to recount their experiences.

About Hyderabad

Dinesh Kumar
Hyderabad is the capital and largest city of the Indian state of Telangana and de jure capital of Andhra Pradesh.[A] Occupying 625 square kilometres (241 sq mi) along the banks of the Musi River, located on the Deccan Plateau in the northern part of South India at an average altitude of 542 metres (1,778 ft), much of Hyderabad is situated on hilly terrain around artificial lakes, including Hussain Sagar lake—predating the city's founding—north of the city centre. Hyderabad City has a population of about 6.9 million, with about 9.7 million in Hyderabad Metropolitan Region, making it the fourth-most populous city and sixth-most populous urban agglomeration in India. With an output of US$74 billion, Hyderabad is the fifth-largest contributor to India's overall gross domestic product.

In 1591 Qutb Shahi ruler Muhammad Quli Qutb Shah established Hyderabad to extend the capital beyond the fortified Golconda. In 1687 the city was annexed by the Mughals. In 1724 Mughal governor Nizam Asaf Jah I declared his sovereignty and founded the Asaf Jahi dynasty, also known as the Nizams. Hyderabad served as the imperial capital of the Asaf Jahi from 1769 to 1948. As capital of the princely state of Hyderabad, the city housed the British Residency and cantonment until Indian independence in 1947. Hyderabad was invaded and integrated into the Indian Union in 1948 and continued as a capital of Hyderabad State (1948–56), and when the States Reorganisation Act of 1956 was introduced Hyderabad was made the capital of the united Andhra Pradesh. In 2014 Telangana state was formed after the bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh. Hyderabad City became a joint capital of the two states, a transitional arrangement scheduled to end in 2024. Since 1956, the city has housed the winter office of the President of India.

Relics of the Qutb Shahi and Nizam rules remain visible today; the Charminar has come to symbolise the city. By the end of early modern era, the Mughal Empire declined in the Deccan and the Nizams' patronage had attracted men of letters from different parts of the world. The amalgamation of local and migrated artisans had originated a distinctive culture, and the city emerged as the foremost centre of oriental culture. Painting, handicraft, jewellery, literature, dialect and clothing are prominent still today. Through its cuisine, the city is listed as a UNESCO creative city of gastronomy. The Telugu film industry based in the city is the country's second-largest producer of motion pictures.

Until the 19th century Hyderabad was known for the pearl industry and was nicknamed the "City of Pearls", and was the only Golconda Diamonds trading centre in the world. Many of the city's historical and traditional bazaars remain open. Hyderabad's central location between the Deccan Plateau and the Western Ghats, and industrialisation throughout the 20th century attracted major Indian research, manufacturing, educational and financial institutions. Since the 1990s, the city has emerged as an Indian hub of pharmaceuticals and biotechnology. The formation of special economic zones and HITEC City dedicated to information technology has encouraged leading multinationals to set up operations in Hyderabad.


According to John Everett-Heath, the author of Oxford Concise Dictionary of World Place Names, Hyderabad means "Haydar's city" or "lion city", from haydar (lion) and ābād (city), and was named to honour the Caliph Ali Ibn Abi Talib, who was also known as Haydar because of his lion-like valour in battles.[2] Andrew Petersen, a scholar of Islamic architecture, says the city was originally called Baghnagar (city of gardens).[3] One popular theory suggests that the founder of the city, Muhammad Quli Qutb Shah of the Golconda Sultanate, named it after Bhagmati, a local nautch (dancing) girl with whom he had fallen in love. She converted to Islam and adopted the title Hyder Mahal. The city was named as Hyderabad in her honour.

According to German traveller Heinrich von Poser, whose travelogue of the Deccan was translated by Gita Dharampal-Frick of Heidelberg University, there were two names for the city: "On 3 December 1622, we reached the city of Bagneger or Hederabat, the seat of the king Sultan Mehemet Culi Cuttub Shah and the capital of the kingdom".[5] French traveller Jean de Thévenot visited the Deccan region in 1666–1667 refers to the city in his book Travels in India as "Bagnagar and Aiderabad".

After throwing birthday bash for 100, Hyderabad jeweller dies of COVID-19

Dinesh Kumar
At least 100 members of the jewellers association attended the party recently. Two days after the bash, the host developed Covid-19 symptoms and was admitted to a private hospital.

This is not the first birthday gone sour in Hyderabad. A police constable who distributed sweets after the birth of a son also tested positive on Saturday—as did the 12 recipients of the sweets. “These are the super-spreaders due to which the number of positive cases has gone up in Hyderabad. In spite of so much publicity, some people just refuse to follow the rules. Birthday parties, family gatherings to celebrate a birth, or youths getting together to welcome a foreign returnee are proving to be hotspots of coronavirus spread. Asymptomatic persons attending huge gatherings like this are spreading the infection,” Director of Public Health G Srinivas Rao said.

Health Minister Etela Rajender said he was frustrated. “There is a drastic rise in coronavirus cases in Hyderabad because people are refusing to follow basic rules. Families are hosting birthday parties, organising engagement functions, or getting together at homes to celebrate a new birth. It takes just one among them who is infected to spread the virus to dozens of others and that is what is happening in Hyderabad,” he said.

'Private labs not adhering to testing norms'

Amid a spike in cases, the Telangana government Saturday accused private labs of not adhering to testing norms prescribed by ICMR, which, it said, was leading to false positives. “We are going to issue notices to 13 private labs which are not following the norms,” Director of Public Health Rao said.

One of these private laboratories has reported an extremely high sample positivity rate: With 2,672 positive cases against 3,726 total samples tested, the positivity rate is 71.7 per cent—a gross variation and discrepancy in the notified positivity rate of Covid-19 till date.

“The issue needs to be evaluated by an expert committee and until then the data of the said lab has been kept under abeyance. If this lab and other labs are found to be violating ICMR rules then we will take strict action against them,” Rao said.
