SDM Magistrate thrashed at Windsor Park in Indirapuram

A sub-divisional magistrate was allegedly beaten up by an assistant senior engineer of Ghaziabad Development Authority (GDA) and his friends when he objected to loud music they were playing in a club. The incident took place on Wednesday night (November 18) at Windsor Park in Indirapuram.

According to Akhil Kumar, SSP (Ghaziabad), the incident took place when SDM Vishal Singh went to the club at Wincer Palace and requested the club management not to play loud music at night. "He was trying to help his children in their studies but the loud music from the club located inside the residential complex distracted them. He then went down to the club around 11.30pm to request the organizers to turn down the music,'' said Kumar.

"We have registered a case of hurt. As the SDM was not on duty when the incident took place, we have not slapped a case of stopping a government servant from discharging his duty. We will question a few other people, including the DJ. The victim and his PSO were taken to the hospital for treatment. Doctors said both the victim were out of danger,'' said a senior police officer.

According to Rajesh Tripathi, station officer, Indirapuram, “when SDM Vishal Singh and his PSO requested Chowdhry to turn down the music, the latter protested, the verbal duel soon turned ugly and the accused and his friends beat up the SDM and his PSO. The SDM then called police who soon arrived at the spot and arrested Chowdhry and three of his associates,''.

According to residents and RWA of Windsor Park, Subash Chowdhry is one of the apartment owners in Windsor Park. He has bought more than half a dozen of apartments and the club in Windsor Park which was residential purpose was used for commercial purpose by Chowdhry. Chowdhry and his friends used to have party and DJ music was played loud in late night which often distracts the residents of apartment. According to them who ever objected to loud music was beaten by Chowdhry and his friends. According to them, instead of police taking action against Chowdhry and his friends, police takes action against those who objects Chowdhry. When SDM Vishal Singh was allegedly beaten up by Chowdhry and his friends, residents of Windsor Park gathered at house of Akhil Kumar, SSP Ghaziabad demanding to the arrest of Chowdhry and his friends.

Police said they had arrested four of the attackers Narendra Chaudhary, Mahesh Verma, Sandeep Nagar and Pradeep Singh and were hunting for several more people. The engineer, identified as one N K Chowdhry, claimed that he was the personal assistant of Uttar Pradesh minister Naimuddin Siddique. Owners, residents and RWA of Windsor Park says that police has arrested Subash Chowdhry and released SDM Vishal Singh’s attackers on bail without taking the incident seriously.

Apartment residents connecting online at CommonFloor

November 17th 2009, Liffy Thomas, CHENNAI: For over a couple of months, the Shankars only knew a few neighbours in their new, 194-odd apartment complex on Rajiv Gandhi Salai. Blame it on today’s fast-paced world in which one finds little time to mingle. But, many often hope that an understanding neighbour would give a helping hand during a contingency...

Associations with not-so-tech-savvy members are taking help to design the online platform. Bangalore-based start-up claims to have its presence in 22 cities.

Online communities help address issues effectively, particularly when members have no time to attend association meetings......

Ceebros Mayfair Owners and Residents, Velachery, and YS Enclave Owners and Residents, Virugambakkam, are among those using technology to stay connected.

Valentines Day

Why do we celebrate?
We celebrate Valentine's Day, because until 1969, it was one of the many Saint's Days observed by the Catholic Church. It was dedicated to the patron saint of romantic causes, St. Valentine. Although it was removed from the Church's calendar in 1969, the religious meaning coupled with Valentine's Day's roots in Roman paganism have allowed it to continue as a holiday for everyone.
