Ahmedabad, June 28: The Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation has rejected the proposal to charge octroi on bullion entering the city. While the municipal commissioner had proposed an octroi of 1 per cent, it was later scaled down to 0.5 per cent.

The mayor, Mr Himmatsingh Patel, said the state government had declared that no octroi would be charged on these items. Badruddin Sheikh, chairman of the standing committee, said, “We heard representations from various trade bodies and felt that this would shift the business away from the city as it did in Mumbai.”

ISI agent stabbed inside Sabarmati jail Friday, June 29, 2001

The Times of India News Service
AHMEDABAD, June 28: In the second major incident within a year in Sabarmati central jail, ISI agent and TADA convict Mohammad Sharif Umardin Rana was attacked with a knife by two undertrials on Thursday morning.

Sharif, who was rushed to civil hospital, is a member of the Lal Singh gang and was arrested by the CBI in the famous arms and explosives haul case, from Juhapura in 1992.

The incident took place in the dus kholi (ten cells) enclosure of the jail where about ten prisoners had assembled.

The accused - Mahalingam alias Shiva who has been booked under the NDPS Act for drug-trafficking in Ahmedabad and Pramod alias Bambaiyya booked for dacoity and murder in Mumbai -stabbed Sharif on the head and back inflicting deep wounds.

But the jailers were unable to explain how the duo laid their hands on the knife evading the security frisking.

In November last year, TADA detenue Abdul Wahab Baloch was attack in similar fashion. This time, too, the incident appears to be a consequence of communal tensions prevailing in the jail.

"Sharif is an ISI agent working with Pakistan's military intelligence and was caught during the arms recovery at Juhapura in 1992 and convicted in 1995," said jail superintendent LV Kharadi.

Bambaiyya and Shiva told the police that Sharif had tried to attack them and that the knife belonged to him.

According to Kharadi, a fortnight back, prisoners lodged in the Bada chakkar had an altercation over the namaaz and aarti timings, after which Sharif was moved to dus kholi.

Bada chakkar is where those sentenced to life are lodged. The build-up to the Sharif attack incident bears a striking resemblance to the Wahab incident where a mini communal riot preceded the attack.

A city-based advocate, Ghulam Saiyyed, had sent an application to the Sabarmati police last week, seeking an investigation into attacks on some inmates. He had alleged that a prisoner, Abdul Wahid Fakir, was not allowed to offer namaaz on June 6 and was also beaten up.

Police inspector at Sabarmati police station SS Chudasma told 'The Times of India' that Sharif has been in Sabarmati jail since July 14, 1993.

Kharadi admitted there was negligence and that some jail staffers may have been in cahoots with the inmates. Since Mahalingam and Bambaiyya are undertrials, they are not allowed into the workshops from where tools could be smuggled out to be used as lethal weapons later.

Kharadi also pointed out that the prisoners could even remove handles from cooking pots, sharpen them on the stone floor of their cells and use it as a weapon.
