November 28, 2012 - 12:00:00 am


Jaipur: An 84-year-old man was arrested in Rajasthan’s Sikar district, 38 years after he illegally came to India from Pakistan and settled down under a disguise, police said  yesterday.

The man, identified as Ummed Khan, got married, acquired all identification documents including a passport and bought agriculture land to pose as a farmer, they added. Khan was detained Monday evening from his house in Ramgarh Sekhawati area, some 150km from Jaipur.

“We learnt that Khan was into suspicious activities in the area. He was questioned. It came up that he was illegally staying in India for 38 years,” a police officer said. He had come to visit his brother, Haqam Ali, in 1954 and 1956. 

On the second trip, he disappeared. However, he was traced by police in 1971. He was convicted and deported to Pakistan in 1974 after he completed his sentance. But it seems he returned to India a couple of years later and settled down in Ramgarh Shekhawati.


2G scam biggest in my tenure: CBI director


New Delhi: Outgoing Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) director Amar Pratap Singh yesterday said the 2G spectrum allocation case was the biggest and most complicated in the two years of his tenure. 

“...I had to handle several cases, including the 2G scam, Adarsh case, Commonwealth Games case, against high-profiled accused. Among them, 2G spectrum allocation scam was the biggest in terms of its complications,” Singh said reporters here.

Singh, who retires on November 30 after two eventful tenures as CBI director, said he could not ascribe any loss figure to 2G scam. He also said that under his tenure, the CBI attempted to be transparent and open.

“We have attempted to be as transparent and open in the functioning. In the two years we have by and large tried to keep these commitments. My tenure was marked by complex specialised high-profile investigations to probe corruption and crime,” he added.
