years and 10 years in prison respectively on Friday Abdul Latif (36) and Riyaz Ali Imtiyaz (30) were handed the sentences by sessions judge Sanjay V Patil a day after he convicted them for conspiring to commit a terrorist act under section 18 of the stringent Unlawful Activities Prevention Act The duo who are brothers-in-law were arrested by Maharashtra Anti Terror Squad in March 2010 after intelligence agencies picked up conversations they had with an individual in Karachi Pakistan to plan the attack Abdul Latif a hawker lived in Behmrampada in Bandra East while Riyaz was employed at Thakkar Mall in Borivali as a salesman and lived in Dahisar The ATS claimed during the arrest that ten litres of petrol had been found in their possession which the men had planned to use in the attack Special public prosecutor Rohini Salian argued for maximum punishment of life imprisonment as the charges are “very grave in nature” Lawyers for the duo appealed for the sentence to be reduced as they have both already been in prison for five years the minimum punishment prescribed by section 18 Abdul Latif also filed an application before the court stating that his wife Nusrat (33) was diagnosed with mouth cancer four months ago “We were expecting a death penalty or life imprisonment But informing the court about the cancer helped get a lesser punishment” said Abdul Latif’s father Abdul Rashid Riyqaz’s lawyer argued that his career was at stake and that “no specific role had been assigned to him before pointing out he had already been in jail for 5 years and 10 months” Riyaz’s brother Faarooque Mapkar said the families had accepted the verdict but would appeal in the Bombay High Court “We are relieved the court did not announce the maximum punishment No evidence was ever found by police to prove they had been a planning an attack The ATS has framed them” he claimed Throughout the hour-long arguments the duo stood before the judge with folded hands Later Abdul Latif

training session at the Oval in London on Wednesday India face Sri Lanka in a Group B match here on Thursday AP Related News “Lord’s is almost a mythical place The Oval in comparison is a people’s stadium” Mark Butcher couldn’t have put it better He should know The former England batsman after all literally grew up at the Oval As a youngster he saw his father Alan don the “three feathers” emblem and captain Surrey for a number of years Then the junior Butcher continued the legacy for nearly two more decades Lord’s is of course what everyone thinks of when you say cricket ground in London And for many the Oval has been the other ground It didn’t help that the English were often made to feel out of place here during the 1980s where it was more the West Indians’ home away from home The proximity of the stadium to Brixton which is engulfed with Caribbean life culture and food meant that they thronged to Kennington whenever Clive Lloyd and his band of boys were here for a game And they cheered raucously as their compatriots made the English look silly for more than a decade Both Lord’s and the Oval do have their own share of history But you have to dig out the history of the Oval Almost everything is known about Lord’s It’s not the Home of Cricket for nothing But funnily enough there’ve been more cricketing highlights of historic value played out here than at that other more illustrious venue in the northwest of the city “While Lord’s has always gotten two Tests during most summers and everyone’s obsessed over getting their name up on the honours’ board the Oval which would play host to the final Test is where careers were made and broken” says Butcher The Oval went from a piece of land where Henry VIII used to grow asparagus to hosting the first-ever Test on English soil It was converted to a potential prisoner-of-war camp during World War II and fortunately never used Post-war it was here that Don Bradman failed to score those final four runs and fell to Eric Hollies off the first-ball in his final essay And in later years England have won and lost a number of Ashes-including famously in 2005 “And there’s also Devon Malcolm’s 9/59 that will never be forgotten” adds Butcher You just have to walk around the ground from the Hobbs Gate to the Alec Stewart Gate to know the history that resides here Everyone from Peter May to Laker and Lock to Ken Barrington have a plaque named after them with even the more modern Surrey legends like the Hollioakes and the Butchers having a gate named after them But more than anything it’s the vibe at the two grounds that create the major difference Lord’s can be a tad stuffy with its coats suits and ties-and we’re not even talking about those gaudy MCC ones There are rules and restrictions over what you can bring in and dress-codes at many areas Casual and boisterous The Oval is a lot more casual You can walk in from most gates and the atmosphere is often boisterous or allowed to be so David Lloyd had once written that if Lord’s is Arsenal the Oval is West Ham in terms of this being a more homely venue What adds to the homeliness is the many residential buildings that surround the ground providing perfect vantage points for catching the action on the ground “Even from its name it’s the Oval It could be anywhere But everyone knows where Lord’s is and what it stands for” says Butcher Historically the final of any major world event in England was always held at Lord’s and understandably so It’s a tradition that has changed of late The Champions Trophy will be held at the Oval this time And according to Butcher it makes sense too With fans expected to come in from various parts of the country and the world the convenience in getting to the Oval gives it the edge “You can approach it from so many ways On the tube you can either get here using the Victoria Line getting off at Vauxhall or take the Northern line and get off at the Oval tube station” he explains What’s more the atmosphere here also demands for everyone including the English locals to let their hair down a little more Lord’s can keep the stiff upper lips Butcher though admits sheepishly that he still treasured playing Test cricket at Lord’s more like most cricketers would but insists that the Oval will always be home “I could walk in and out of every door here from the time I was a toddler And there’s no other county or ground I ever wanted to call home” he says And for good reason too For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: Express Web Desk | New

chance to recover the esteem and support it had in Delhi and can only apologise for the misguided resignation after 49 days of governing the state Now the party is reeling from a series of resignations Shazia Ilmi one of the moving forces behind the AAP right from its conception in the Anna Hazare-led movement against corruption has quit blaming the lack of inner-party democracy and saying that the party’s agenda was dictated by a small clique around Arvind Kejriwal Captain GR Gopinath a vocal member of the party has also left it citing differences with the leadership Any party is damaged by desertions of the old faithful but the AAP should take these much more seriously given the provisional nature of its idea and organisation so far As llmi pointed out the party makes much of decentralisation as a core principle but does nothing to create clear ladders of opportunity and forums of dialogue within the party Vague volunteerism can end up creating a political culture as opaque as that of the older parties the AAP criticises Arvind Kejriwal often talks of himself and his party as a vessel and conduit for “the people” but such rhetoric can end up sounding like a cover for highly specific views chosen by him and a few others given the party’s ideological slipperiness His radical view of grassroots democracy for instance gives no quarter to institutions that make judicious choices between demands This invites the suspicion that the AAP combines arbitrary decision-making with street theatre Its great conceit of evolving its manifesto bottom-up cannot be credible unless it truly hears its constituencies and its own members Internal democracy is easier for a new idealistic party to create one that has not been made inflexible by vested interests yet

between quiet resignation to his fate and a lingering determination to find a way out (Source: Reuters) Top News Everton manager Ronald Koeman believes he can turn around the struggling club’s fortunes but admits his future is no longer in his hands A 5-2 loss at home to Arsenal on Sunday saw Everton slip into the bottom three in the Premier League and the Dutchman’s job now hangs in the balance “I don’t know I told the players I believe in them in their commitment The decision is not in my hands” Koeman said after the game when asked if it had been the sort of result that could cost him his job (English Premier League Home | Fixtures | Standings/Table) “We are not in a position in the table that is good for Everton I understand (but) I have been in football a long time don’t tell me what can happen I don’t think it’s too late” Asked whether he felt he could still turn around Everton’s season he added: “If you start to think negative then maybe there is no solution I am not like that “I still believe I can change the whole situation but everybody knows how it works in football That is all I answer about this situation” Koeman struck a tone somewhere between quiet resignation to his fate and a lingering determination to find a way out of the team’s rut which has seen them pick up just two wins from their opening nine games “Write what you like to write” he told reporters Everton defender Michael Keane said the players were strongly behind Koeman and were disappointed not to have delivered better results and performances for him “It’s down to us the manager can only do so much We have 100 percent belief in him We feel like we’ve let him down We’re working really hard to sort it out” he said But centre-half Keane one of a series of big money signings prior to this campaign conceded the team’s confidence has been hit by their poor campaign “I think so Normally everyone would want to get on the ball and show what they can do Maybe you’re not seeing that now It was a difficult day” he added After taking the lead through a fine Wayne Rooney strike Everton were largely outplayed and went 2-1 down before Idrissa Gueye was sent off in the 68th minute and the Gunners took full advantage of the extra man “The sending off of Gana made it really difficult It was already difficult against 11 and it was impossible at 10 against 11” said Koeman For all

Gandhi’s assassination Perhaps Swamy has not heard of the perils of not letting sleeping dogs lie The Mahatma’s murder to use another metaphor is a hornet’s nest Stirring it will unleash so many facts that it will end up stinging a lot of heroes we have been worshipping including the ones held dear by Swamy and friends As Jagjit Singh once sang Baat niklegi to phir door talak jayegi So careful Mr Swamy what you wish for In 1966 the government of India constituted a one-man committee under justice Jeevanlal Kapur of Supreme Court to probe the Mahatma’s murder in the wake of fresh evidence and allegations The probe was the result of GV Ketkar’s boast that he was aware of the plan to murder the Mahatma Ketkar grandson of Bal Gangadhar Tilak had revealed this fact during a programme organised to celebrate the release of Gopal Godse and two other sentenced to life for the murder Justice Kapur examined hundreds of witnesses including the then home minister of Bombay (Mumbai) Morarji Desai socialist leader Jayprakash Narayan cops who investigated the case in various cities (Pune Delhi Gwalior Alwar Mumbai) and noted: "All these facts were destructive of any theory other than the conspiracy to murder by Savarkar and his group." (25106 part two) Though Savarkar was let off after the initial trial the Commission uncovered new evidence that left no doubt that the Mahatma’s murder was planned by Madanlal Pahwa Nathuram Godse Narayan Apte and Savarkar The Kapur Commission cited also the evidence of one Devendra Kumar to point at the larger conspiracy by Savarkarites "Statement made before a magistrate under section 164 CrPC of one Devendra Kumar who was originally resident of Goa and had joined the Hindu Rashtra Dal in March 1937 He stated that he met NV Godse (the person hanged for the Mahatma’s murder) who was captain of the Dal The statement shows how the deponent was taught to manufacture bombs and to use guns from cycles and cars and how to use pistols and revolvers He was also training others Among other things he disclosed that it was planned that Mahatma Gandhi (JLN) Nehru Sardar Patel Maulana Azad and Baldev Singh should be killed as they were standing in the way of the Rashtra Dal The party was waiting for a chance to execute this programme Then he added: ‘We were creating hatred against these leaders in the minds of the public and it was planned that as soon as the public was ready the leaders should be killed one by one.When I heard of the sad incident about Gandhiji I became unnerved I dropped a letter to Savarkar threatening to expose the conspiracy if he did not desist from the execution of the rest of the programme’."
