Delhi: After a volley of barbs from Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on the Modi government on the issue of CBI raids on Tuesday the central investigating agency came out strongly on Wednesday denying all the charges of Kejriwal “Blatant incorrect statements spread to obstruct the investigation” the CBI spokesperson said Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal Agencies Clarifying its stand on the raid conducted at Delhi secretariat the CBI said the raid was not conducted at the CMO Here are some of the key points the CBI made: CM’s office (chamber) was neither searched nor sealed The search and seizure conducted by the CBI was in conformation of law and legal procedures Blatant incorrect statements spread to obstruct the investigation No irrelevant document or material was seized Didn’t prevent movement or disallowed anyone to CMO Only the chamber of Rajendra Kumar was searched and documents seized (laptop and documents relevant to the case) Documents seized are related to seven-year period of Principal Secretary Rajendra Kumar “It’s a brazen attempt to discredit the CBI” the agency said The CBI coming out in public for a clarification appeared surprising But according to agency sources the turn of events throughout Tuesday after the raid — from mere allegations to political mud-slinging — compelled it to clear the air of confusion and mistrust Immediately after the raid Kejriwal tweeted “When Modi couldn’t handle me politically he resorts to his cowardice Modi is a coward and a psychopath" Triggering a political storm a volley of questions (read allegations) was thrown on air from Kejriwal deputy CM Manish Sisodia and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) spokespersons on how the CBI could raid the CM’s office and the ‘ulterior motive of the CBI and the Centre’ behind the raid “The CBI seized the files related to CM and the affidavits to be presented in the court” deputy CM Manish Sisodia had said on Tuesday “At 10 am the CBI prevented me from entering the CMO The entrance to the CM’s chamber was blocked If they had to raid Rajendra Kumar’s office they should have blocked and sealed that particular entry and not that of the CM” said Arunoday Prakash media advisor to Sisodia But surprisingly by evening the AAP-government bowled a googly alleging that the CBI had raided the CM’s chamber to get hold of files related to Delhi District Cricket Association (DDCA) and Union Finance Minister and former DDCA chief Arun Jaitley AAP spokesperson Ashutosh had tweeted “When AAP Govt investigates DDCA Jaitley gets nervous CBI raids CM office to scuttle investigation” Referring to a letter issued by Ministry of Youth Affairs & Sports dated 27 July Ashutosh said “The central government (Sports Ministry) wrote to the Chief Secretary Govt of NCT of Delhi requesting to take appropriate action on irregularities committed by DDCA – illegal construction of corporate boxes in the land in Delhi meant for promoting cricket and entertainment tax evasion (sic) It was a request from the central government to the Delhi government for taking appropriate action” The AAP alleged that Modi and Jaitley conducted the raids to prevent the Delhi government from investigation into DDCA irregularities In response to Kejriwal’s allegations on raid Jaitley said “I can’t answer any vague allegation by anyone without any basis The state government and a party are on docks over corruption and interfered in investigation by making vague baseless allegations” Speaking to Firstpost Delhi BJP spokesperson Ashwini Upadhyay said “Arvind Kejriwal and company resorted to theatrics to shield its corrupt ministers MLAs and some officials It has intentionally attacked the CBI and questioned its credibility to give a message that they were unnecessarily harassed It’s a clever tactic to protect the corrupt people in AAP-government The frustration in CM shows there is something fishy What action did Kejriwal-government take against former Delhi CM Sheila Dikshit and five tainted ministers of her cabinet involved in corruption Everything has been done to divert the attention from its own incapability and corruption” According to the CBI the agency has registered a case against Rajendra Kumar principal secretary to Delhi CM and a few others as co-accused It was alleged in the FIR that the said senior civil servant while working in different capacities in the Government of Delhi favoured a private company of Delhi from 2007 onwards The accused allegedly facilitated award of contracts worth Rs950 crores (approx) to the said company through ICSIL and misused his official position as public servant By: Bloomberg | Published: August 24 2017 12:11 pm The stakes are high for Samsung Electronics Co’s rollout of the Note 8 after the previous model’s exploding battery fiasco last year (Image source: Bloomberg) Related News The stakes are high for Samsung Electronics Co’s rollout of the Note 8 after the previous model’s exploding battery fiasco last year “None of us will ever forget what happened last year” Samsung Mobile chief executive DJ Koh told a New York audience today at the phone’s unveiling Like the Note 7 which was scrapped and cost the South Korean company an estimated $6 billion the new smartphone sports a big screen and advanced features to make it a more versatile device compared with Samsung’s main Galaxy S8 flagship product Like its predecessors it includes a stylus By keeping the same brand name Samsung is making clear that the Note 8 is an iterative (and better) device and signals that it thinks it’s fixed the problems with the previous version While the Note doesn’t command as wide an appeal as the Galaxy S line both are premium devices in Samsung’s efforts against Apple Inc in the battle for global smartphone supremacy The Note also helps the Suwon-based manufacturer keep pressure on its rival just before the release of three new iPhone models in September “The Note 8 is arguably Samsung’s most important smartphone launch in its history” said Neil Mawston executive director at Strategy Analytics Inc “After the Note 7 battery fiasco Samsung has been given a second chance by consumers and the company must not screw it up” Even with the Note 7 debacle and the de facto head of the Samsung conglomerate on trial for bribery and embezzlement Samsung’s ability to sell hardware and earn profits remains intact Net income was a record 108 trillion won ($95 billion) in the latest quarter on sales that rose 20 per cent to 61 trillion won in the three months ended June The most significant change in the Note 8 is a larger display that curves at the edges like the S8 The 63-inch AMOLED screen a variant of the organic light-emitting diode display used on many recent high-end smartphones is noticeably bigger than the Note 7’s 57-inch touchscreen and slightly larger than the Galaxy S8+’s 62-inch display Although many phone makers are working on ways to get a fingerprint scanner built into the display the Note 8 – like many other models – will have one in the back The longer screen on the new phone lets users view more content such as text messages and emails without having to scroll Samsung said in a demonstration (Image source: Bloomberg) The company also posted information about a new smartwatch online Called the Gear Fit 2 Pro it will be water-resistant and capable of tracking swimmers two features that became available on the Apple Watch in 2016 Apple plans to debut a new version of its watch later this year that adds support for LTE wireless networks Bloomberg News has reported In an interview with CNBC Koh confirmed the company is also working on a smart speaker to take on Amazon’s Echo and Apple’s upcoming HomePod but he didn’t disclose details or timing The longer screen on the new phone lets users view more content such as text messages and emails without having to scroll Samsung said in a demonstration The Note 8 also has new features for the stylus: users can write notes without unlocking the device draw animated pictures that can be shared with contacts and words can be highlighted to be translated into different languages The bigger screen also lets users swipe from the display’s edge to launch two paired apps at a time in a split view The new smartphone from Samsung will also feature an upgraded camera system that sports two lenses on the back for the first time Like the iPhone 7 Plus the advanced optics let users take pictures that can determine depth so that the background behind a person’s profile can appear blurred The Note 8 will also support Gigabit LTE a faster networking technology for browsing the web and downloading content which the next iPhone won’t have Bloomberg News has reported In the US the Note 8 will be available for pre-order on August 24 and will hit store shelves on September 15 Former Note 7 owners are eligible for a special offer on Samsungcom where they’ll receive an instant trade-in value of up to $425 when they upgrade their current phone for a Note 8 The Note 8 will face competition from not only Apple’s new iPhone but also Huawei Technologies Co’s Mate 9 LG Electronics Inc’s upgraded V series and Essential’s PH-1 according to Mawston Samsung regained its No 1 position in global smartphone shipments earlier this year with 23 per cent of the market after losing ground during the Note 7 debacle Cupertino California-based Apple had 12 per cent in the second quarter while Huawei held 11 perc ent according to IHS Markit In an effort to reassure customers who may have lost trust in Samsung devices because of the Note 7 fiasco Samsung said it worked with Underwriters Laboratories a safety certification firm to validate the Note 8’s reliability The new smartphone will sport a battery of 3300 mAh slightly smaller than the Note 7’s power pack Samsung also released a re-purposed version of the Note 7 called the Note FE last month with a smaller battery “I know lots of loyal Note series customers they were so disappointed” Koh said in an interview in June “Disappointment is deeper the expectation is higher so I must meet their demand and their expectation through the Note 8” For all

Slovenia WELLINGTON New Zealand: Jonah Lomu who bulldozed opponents with his size and blistering speed only to be felled by a kidney illness that extinguished his meteoric All Blacks career died suddenly at his home in Auckland He was 40 Hailed as the sport’s first global superstar he shot to international fame at the 1995 World Cup in South Africa a year after becoming the youngest ever All Black at the age of 19 years and 45 days Nadene Lomu the wife and manager of the rugby great confirmed Lomu’s death in a statement Wednesday but did not specify the cause Lomu had struggled with a kidney illness for 20 years "It is with great sadness that I must announce my dear husband Jonah Lomu died (overnight)" she said "This is a devastating loss for our family and may I ask that our privacy especially the privacy of our two very young boys be respected as we take them through this traumatic time" File photo of New Zealand All Blacks winger Jonah Lomu AP New Zealand Rugby chief executive Steve Tew said "Jonah was a legend of our game and loved by his many fans both here and around the world" The son of immigrants from Tonga innately humble off the pitch was at his devastating best at the 1995 and 1999 World Cups scoring 15 tries in 11 games but never winning the trophy The stabbing death of a friend steered Lomu away from street gangs in the blue-collar suburbs of Auckland New Zealand’s largest city where he grew up Rugby gave him new direction He channeled anger he felt about his father into the sport Aged just 19 for the first of his 63 tests he was a physical colossus for a winger — 196 meters tall (6-foot-4); 119 kilograms (262 pounds) — and quite terrifying when pounding through defensive lines at speed Nephrotic syndrome a degenerative kidney illness curtailed his career at his peak Lomu tried making a comeback after a 2004 transplant but was forced to abandon hopes of playing the 2007 World Cup He played his last match in 2006 At the height of his career Lomu had the ear of Nelson Mandela charmed Hollywood comedian Robin Williams — who wore an All Blacks cap and called him "mate" — and visited parliaments and palaces His father Semisi Lomu was a factory worker devoutly religious and a harsh disciplinarian His mother Hepi held together the family living on a shoestring and acted as a buffer between father and son "At times he was the best dad that he could be" Lomu said in a 2013 interview "It was just when he drank that’s when me and him disagreed He was quite violent when he was drunk "Mum was always there to protect the kids And when Dad got angry and wanted to bash us she would get in the way It builds up a lot of things inside of me" At age 1 Lomu was sent to Tonga to be raised by an aunt who for the next five years he thought of as his mother On return to New Zealand Lomu rebelled against the strict father leading to their eventual estrangement and gravitated toward the streets "It made me battle-hardened for rugby" he said "When I was playing when I found it hard I just thought of my father and that got me through it That anger got me through it" After the death of his friend Lomu found new direction at Auckland’s Wesley College a famous nursery of Polynesia rugby talent There he first showed the devastating combination of size fused with speed Playing out on the wing with time and space to hit his stride he crashed through or cruised around opponents He played for New Zealand’s under-19 team and starred in rugby sevens before his international debut in June 1994 as the youngest ever All Black aged 19 years 45 days He became a formidable scoring weapon after mastering the technique of test rugby scoring 37 test tries Selected late to the All Blacks squad after an injury to John Timu Lomu burst to international fame at the 1995 World Cup in South Africa He scored seven tries in five matches including four in a rampaging semifinal win over England But by then he also knew he was sick He missed tests against South Africa in 1996 and almost all of the 1997 season In 1998 he won a rugby sevens gold medal at the Commonwealth Games At the 1999 World Cup he scored eight tries in six games including two in New Zealand’s semifinal loss to France Lomu remained an All Black until 2002 but his health faded He required dialysis three times a week After his kidney transplant he played with New Zealand’s North Harbour province and with moderate success for the Cardiff Blues in Wales "I was hoping that it would get better but it never did" he said "But you know I would never change anything" AP & AFP inputs New Delhi: "I have been unlucky but who isn’t in this world at some point" asked L Devendro Singh trying to make sense of past rejections and near misses of an otherwise fine career so far The 25-year-old Subedar in the Indian Army is the lone boxer among 17 Arjuna awardees finalised this year a list which is expected to get the Sports Ministry’s nod — like all the previous years The flyweight boxer had been nominated in 2015 and 2016 as well but could not get the selection committee’s approval despite fine performances "I don’t believe in blaming or sulking It’s not healthy for an athlete Being a sportsperson means giving your best and taking pride in it instead of withdrawing yourself after a setback" Devendro told PTI in an interview File photo of L Devendro Singh Reuters "I am an optimist it’s fine if I didn’t get it the previous years I got it this year I would like to savour that I live in the present and it won’t change for anything" he said His self-assured optimism aside Devendro wouldn’t really be faulted if he felt a shade disappointed by the double snub A Commonwealth Games silver-medallist who was bested by two-time Olympic medallist and European champion Paddy Barnes in a gripping final in 2014 Devendro also has two Asian Championship medals (a silver in 2013 and a bronze in 2015) to his credit An Olympic quarter-finalist in 2012 London Games Devendro has nearly always lost crucial bouts on split verdicts Bouts that could have or perhaps should have gone his way the biggest of the recent heartbreaks being the box-offs he lost to miss the 2016 Olympic Games qualification "I won’t say that a loss doesn’t hurt it always does but can you really achieve anything by brooding too much You have to move on and find new targets which I always do It also helps that I have a short memory I tend to forget after a while" he laughed "Once you have taken up a sport like boxing at the age of 11 you have to be prepared for some blows here and there" The former world No 3’s rather philosophical take on life inside the ring comes from the days spent training at the Army Sports Institute in Pune back in 2003 It was at this place that he was "forced" into the habit of writing a daily diary "We were told to write a diary by senior officers and eventually it became a habit I used to write about my training insecurities and several other things I actually have four diaries filled up but I stopped in 2013 because of lack of time "I haven’t thrown away the ones I filled I read them when I go home to laugh at myself They are good for stress-management sometimes" he said "Besides I have four dogs and a cat at my home in Manipur I go home and spend most of my time with them and that also takes care of any negativity which might creep in sometimes" he added Speaking of negativity did it creep in when he lost the trials for the Asian Championships earlier this year scuttling his hopes of
