Forest personnel continued search of tiger

BELAGAVI: Forest department personnel continued the search of tiger spotted at Jnana Sangama campus of Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU) on Monday. Tiger leaved the campus on the same evening till the department making plan to catch it and created panic in surrounding villages.

Two teams of forest personnel comprised with wildlife experts accompanied by fully equipped rapid action van searched around 25kms area surrounding VTU on Wednesday but in vain. Some foot marks of tiger found near Jamboti village while there were rumours that tiger sighted near Waghavade village at the morning. The rumours have put the personnel in more confusion.

Police force including Karnataka State Reserve Police (KSRP) platoon has been deployed at VTU campus for security, after the entry of tiger jumping the compound wall. Besides, people in Santibastwad, Renkunde, Tirthkunde, Valmiki Nagar, Markandey Nagar, Kinaye, Macche have been alerted and requested to inform the police or forest department immediately if they found tiger in their area.

However, people of these villages are upset with the forest department officials for failing in timely action to catch the tiger. Deputy conservator of forest Ambadi Madhav said there was no sign of tiger all the day. "We will continue search operation as we don't want to take any risk. The disappearance of tiger cannot be underestimated", he said.

According to forest department sources, it is 3-4 year young tiger and capable to poach big animals. It can jump 10ft height easily. Department headache has been increased with the arrival of new tiger near to city, when it was searching for man-eater tiger, which had released in Khanapur forest from Chikkamagaluru district last month. Now, department is on the trail of both tigers.

Panic-stricken villagers force Karnataka govt to kill tiger

BICHOLIM/BELGAUM: The Karnataka government was forced to shoot dead a tiger between the eyes following opposition by the villagers in trapping the magnificent beast after it attacked and killed a woman in Khanapur, Karnataka.
Tiger experts say that the tiger was not allowed to eat its earlier kills resulting in it remaining hungry and forcing it to move towards softer prey – a woman – and create panic among the villagers.
Richard D’Souza (Chief Conservator of Forest) told Herald that they had sent Parab because he is an expert and “we (Goa) had better equipment. He was willing to tranquilize the tiger.”
“I would have got the tiger tranquilized because our gun is of 80 mts range while theirs is of 20 mts. Parab was willing to trap it using a cage with a goat in it as bait but the Karnataka government did not allow him to participate. He was just a witness,” D’Souza said.
Karnataka officials confirmed that the tiger was killed at Kongla village in Karnataka on Sunday at about 6.30 pm.
An officer on condition of anonymity said that it took almost a month for the officials to spot the tiger. Opposition against the tiger was on after the villagers led by the local MLA staged a ‘dharna.’ This became serious only when a woman was attacked and killed by the wild cat in Khanapur.
According to officials about 350 officials from almost all fields including Special Task Force, Mysore Tiger experts were involved in combing the forests. The tiger was relocated from Chikmagalur and probably it was not able to adjust to the new habitat. They blamed the tiger experts, as they were not able to spot the tiger for almost a month.
Officials who assisted the team said the Karnataka government and the forest department should have taken care before relocating the tiger into the new habitat. Tiger relocation should have been done only after a proper study. The decision was taken in a haste. The assessment of the area and the forest should have been done before this endangered species was let out into the forest, they argued, adding that killing was not the only option, and this decision was taken in a haste. If proper study was done, it would have saved not just the woman who was killed, but also the tiger, they added.
Meanwhile, Karnataka forest officials have denied any assistance from their Goan counterparts. “We have all kinds of advanced equipments including long range tranquiliser guns. Hence, we never sought any assistance from Goa,” Deputy Conservator of Forests Madhav Ambady told Herald.
“There was no other solution other than killing the tiger as it had tasted human blood. Since last 40 days we tried to save the animal by setting the trap, however, since it was trapped earlier, it was evading the same. It had created reign of terror amongst the villagers in the region to the extent that schools were closed, harvesting was kept on hold and villagers had to remain in their homes before sunset till sunrise,” DCF Ambady told Herald when asked whether there was no other solution other than killing the tiger.
It may be recalled that the big cat had killed a woman at Pandarahalli in Chikmagalur district last month and was caught on November 15 and was to be set free at Dandeli forest in Karwar district. However, after stiff opposition from villagers there it was released in Khanapur forests on November 19.
However, recently the wild cat killed another woman near Khanapur. 23-year-old Anjana Hanabar, was mauled to death on December 24 that irked the villagers in the region who had staged a strong protest demanding immediate measures to kill the animal after which government of Karnataka had issued shoot at sight orders against the animal.
Forest dept's sole purpose is to safeguard flora and fauna not save the villagers.

They should have put some efforts. mindless officials.

Panic after fresh reports of tiger-sighting in Belagavi

Deputy Conservator of Forests Madhav Ambadi told The Hindu that forest personnel had rushed to Chapoli and the nearby areas following the report. He said that there were nearly six or seven tigers in the Bhimgad sanctuary, and some more in the Mhadei sanctuary and the Dandeli Wildlife Sanctuary in neighbouring Uttara Kannada district.

Mr. Ambadi said around 30 leopards had made the Bhimgad sanctuary their home and they have been moving for food across the three wildlife sanctuaries with common boundaries. Except for the recent incident, there had been no attacks on humans in Khanapur taluk. Precautionary measures had been taken in and around the villages near the Bhimgad sanctuary and other forest ranges in Khanapur taluk, he said.

They brought it to the notice of forest officials who contended that they found no signs of tiger movement but said, at least six tigers and three cubs live in Jamboti forest and one of them may have walked out.

According to them, the tigers living in Jamboti may have got disturbed with the entry of a maneater in the past few weeks which may have resulted in one of the tigers moving out. The authorities called on villagers not to panic asserting the tigers in Jamboti are not maneaters.

A lesson on language love for present-day bureaucrats

Belagavi, Jan 1, 2015, DHNS

British era letter from Queen written in Kannada found in Belagavi

That top government officials have a penchant for using English in the day-to-day administration is a known fact.


But letters from the days of the Raj that have been found here show how even the Queen of England had acknowledged Kannada as the administrative language of the region.

A thanksgiving letter from the queen, written in 1911 to kings loyal to the regime, which has been found at the Kanabargi suburb here is proof of this.

Members of the Belagavi unit of the State Advocates Sahitya Parishad, while collecting documents regarding use of Kannada in administration prior to Independence, came across the thanksgiving letter written by the Queen of England in the possession of former Belagavi corporator Shivangouda Bhimgouda Patil.

Governors, lieutenant generals and those loyal to the British throne had been invited for the coronation of the Prince of Wales as the administrative officer of India on June 22, 1911 in Delhi.

Thanksgiving letters were sent to them on December 12, 1911 in Kannada.

The invite too was in Kannada, printed on khaki colour paper 1.5-foot wide and 2.5-foot long. The thanksgiving letter, also printed on khaki colour paper with red ink, was 10-inch wide and 16-inch long.

Both have the emblems of the British kingdom and are printed at Government Central Press, Bombay (now Mumbai), as mentioned at the bottom of the letters. Names of those who translated the letters into Kannada have also been printed.

Shivangouda Patil’s father had been working as the police-patil. Hence, he used to receive letters and invites at his residence at Kanabargi. Patil’s father used to participate in the programmes in Delhi.

Property purchase documents of 1928, survey documents of 1939 and court fee receipts of 1940 and other documents that have been collected would be submitted to the government as evidence for the case pending in the Supreme Court regarding the Karnataka-Maharashtra boundary dispute and would be used for research, said Ravindra Totger, Belagavi district unit president of the State Advocates Sahitya Parishad.

CJAM disappoints over poor implementation of government schemes at Belagavi Cantonment Board area

BELAGAVI: Cantonment Jan Adhikar Manch (CJAM), working for the legal rights of cantonment area residents across the country, visited Belagavi on Friday to inspect the development programmes implemented in the Belagavi Cantonment Board (BCB) area.

CJAM expressed unhappiness over the poor implementation of state or central government schemes in BCB area in concern to health, education, sanitation and livelihood. Delegation consisting national secretary Laxman Deshmukh and organizer Saroja Prasad observed that, no Right to Education Act is properly implemented in the area and children have not got up to minimum learning as per their age.

In concern to health, Munch observed pregnant women, children are not getting immunization properly, and more deliveries are happening in homes besides there are no Integrated Child Development Service (ICDS) centres proportionate to the population. Regarding sanitation, the open defecation is being practiced in the area due to lack of public toilets and the condition of the community is very unhygienic.

This apart, most of the people living in BCB are struggling for livelihood. According to observations, maximum population work here is on daily wages and their wages are less than Minimum Wages Act, besides people are not getting work regularly. The implementation of community based government schemes for the welfare of women and children is also poor. As no self-help groups have been registered, they are disconnected with government provisions. Most importantly, CJAM observed increasing child marriage cases in cantonment area.

While addressing cantonment members, Sunil Maske, national spokes person of CJAM, said though people vote for the state assembly, it is experience that, MLAs always ignore the issues of cantonment people saying that the area is not in their jurisdiction. The state government says the cantonment area has separate laws and funds, hence do not feel their responsibility towards the cantonment areas. Due to this, issues are remained ignorant, he said.

According to Maske, as per scheduled VII of Constitution of India, health, education and local self-government is the state responsibility. The state must provide equal benefits of government welfare services and schemes to the residence of cantonment area. He also advised members what measures can be taken for the development of the area.

21 booked for sedition after communal clash

BELAGAVI: Police on Monday booked a sedition case against 21 persons under Section 153 (A) of the Indian Penal Code for allegedly trying to create enmity between two groups based on religion. The case was booked in the backdrop of a communal clash here on Sunday evening.

When a procession was going through the permitted routes on Sunday, around 50 youths on bikes allegedly entered sensitive areas - Badkal Galli and Shivaji Nagar - holding flags and chanting slogans, which triggered stone-pelting and a clash between the two groups. Police rushed there and had to resort to a lathicharge to bring the situation under control.

Following the lathicharge, youths fled after leaving their two-wheelers on the spot. Police seized 27 two-wheelers, including 18 at Badkal Galli and nine at Shivaji Nagar, and arrested nine persons on Sunday. Apart from Section 153 (A), sections 143, 144, 147, 149 and 188 were also invoked against the culprits. Persons from both groups were among the arrested.

City police commissioner S Ravi said all 50 youths who entered Badkal Galli and Shivaji Nagar will be arrested based on% video footages.

Army hunting for new joint-exercise ground

India cannot currently hold joint military exercises with other countries at convenient Belgaum centre owing to ongoing construction work there

The army is desperately looking for a third alternative to hold joint military exercises with other countries, as Belgaum — headquarters of the Maratha Light Infantry (MLI) and a preferred location for such exercises — is out of bounds due to ongoing construction work there.

Joint exercises are usually held in Bhatinda, Punjab, or Belgaum, Karnataka. Bhatinda, base of the Indian Army's 10 Corps, is home to mechanised and armoured regiments. A major Indian Air Force base, it also houses leading fighters like Sukhoi 30 MKI and MI-17V5 helicopters, whereas MLI, surrounded by jungles, mountains, plains and semi-hills, is highly conducive to training in warfare of various kinds.

The army conducts exercises jointly with countries like USA, China, Mongolia, Sri Lanka and Maldives. In December, India engaged in a joint exercise with China at Aundh Military Station in Pune, HQ of the Southern Command.
"
Owing to the ongoing construction of two new barracks at Belgaum, joint exercises cannot be held there. Work will be completed by 2016," said Brigadier Santosh Kurup, MLI commanding officer.

The Belgaum training centre is one of the oldest army regiments. "What makes the centre suitable for such exercises is primarily its location, especially its proximity to the Western Ghats. Both the weather and terrain are good, too. Also, vast jungles offer a perfect setting for guerrilla training.These exercises are aimed at increasing defence co-operation, understanding synergy between countries and their armies," said a senior MLI officer.

MLI TO RAISE NEW BATTALION

A new battalion, comprising around 800 soldiers, is going to be raised by MLI in a couple of months. Kolhapur, housing a Territorial Army battalion, will be the base station.

Pageantry marks Republic Day in Karnataka

Pomp and pageantry marked the 66th Republic Day celebrations across Karnataka Monday, with state Governor Vajubhai Vala unfurling the tricolour and watching the impressive parade here amid tight security.
This is Vala's first Republic Day event in the state as he assumed office Sep 1, 2014.

On a bright sunny day, an air force helicopter showered rose petals on the podium at the Field Marshal Manekshaw parade ground in the city centre, where state Chief Minister Siddarmaiah, dignitaries and officials were also present on the occasion.

After unfurling the national flag and singing the national anthem, Vala watched the parade of the armed forces and other contingents, including platoons of the state police, National Cadets Corps (NCC), Bharat Scouts & Guides (BS&G) and hundreds of school children, with military and police bands also in attendance.

About 8,000 people, including children, assembled at the venue to celebrate the occasion, and cheered the services personnel and other participants for their impeccable parade.

Following the governor's brief address, contingents of the military, police platoons, battalions of security agencies, NCC, BS&G and about 3,000 boys and girls from schools across the city and district staged a march past around the ground and saluted the governor.

People on the ground and thousands of viewers watching the colourful proceedings live on local news channels were treated to a cultural programme consisting of the performances of the children and the adventurous feats of the contingents.

The crowds were in rapt attention when the national anthem was played followed by the rendering of the state anthem (nada geethe) and raithe geethe (song of farmers).

Theme-based events, comprising music, songs and dances, were also performed as a tribute to martyrs, the armed forces, farmers, artisans and rural folk.

The highlight of the two-hour long event was the daring feats (mallakamba) of the Belgaum-based Maratha Light Infantry Regiment on pole vault that excited the crowds and drew applause.

Elaborate arrangements were made to ensure peace and maintain law and order. About 2,500 police personnel were deployed in and around the ground to provide full-proof security and prevent any untoward incident.

The Republic Day fete was celebrated at respective district headquarters across the state.
