Many criminals target favorite areas and have predictable methods of operation. When you report all the facts about a crime, it helps the police assign officers in the places where crimes are occurring or where they are most likely to occur. If you don’t report crime, this allows the criminal to continue to operate without interference.In many cases, it is the information provided by victims and witnesses that leads to the arrest of a criminal. So tell the police as much as you can; no fact is too trivial. The police need the eyes and ears of all citizens.Please visit the Royal Bahamas Police Force Website at www.royalbahamaspolice.org or facebook page at www.facebook.com/rbpforce or follow Commissioner of Police Ellison Greenslade on Twitter, for Latest News, Daily Crime Reports and additional Crime Prevention Tips.last_img read more

first_imgA very embarrassing video has surfaced of an Indian family caught stealing hotel accessories at a resort in Bali in Indonesia. The family was left red-faced when they were forced to open their baggage and show the contents to the staff.This family was caught stealing hotel accessories. Such an embarrassment for India. Each of us carrying an #IndianPassport must remember that we are ambassadors of the nation and behave accordingly.India must start cancelling passports of people who erode our credibility. pic.twitter.com/unY7DqWoSr— Hemanth (@hemanthpmc) July 27, 2019 The video shows the family trying to get out of the situation by saying that they will pay for everything they stole, including towels, decorative pieces, and electronic gadgets from their hotel rooms.”We are really very sorry. This is a family tour. We will pay you. Please let us go because we have to catch our flight,” a woman was heard saying. However, the resort staff did not take any money from the guests. They said, “I know you have a lot of money but this is no respect.”The incident first came to light when a Twitter user posted the video on the micro-blogging site writing, “Such an embarrassment for India. Each of us carrying an #IndianPassport must remember that we are ambassadors of the nation and behave accordingly. India must start cancelling passports of people who erode our credibility.”The Twitter user, Hemanth, added, “I understand this happened in #Bali. Having lived in Indonesia & visited Bali, I can personally vouch for Indonesians being the gentlest, most respectful people I have met. They hold India & Indians in very high esteem & its gut-wrenching to see us in such a compromised position.”The tweet received over 3,000 retweets and 5,000 likes. Many Twitter users called out the family asking why they would disgrace the name of the country. Others said that this is not an isolated incident and another Indian family was also caught in a similar situation recently.last_img read more

first_imgPakistani security officials and volunteers search the site after a suicide bombing at an election rally in Peshawar on 10 July. Photo: AFPA suicide bombing at an election rally killed at least 13 people, including a politician, in northwestern Pakistan on Tuesday, police said, amid concerns about security ahead of national polls later this month.The attack targeted a campaign event organised in the city of Peshawar by the Awami National Party, which has been targeted by Islamist militants in the past over its vocal opposition to extremist groups like the Taliban.The bombing came hours after the Pakistan military spokesman said there were security threats ahead of national elections scheduled for 25 July.“The attack killed at least 13 people, including (Haroon) Bilour,” Peshawar city police chief Qazi Jameel told AFP.Officials said at least 54 people were wounded.Haroon Bilour was one of the ANP’s election candidates and belonged to an influential political family in the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province, of which Peshawar is the capital.His father Bashir Bilour, one of the ANP’s top leaders, was also killed by a suicide bomber in 2012.“According to our initial investigation, it was a suicide attack and Haroon Bilour… was the target,” police official Shafqat Malik told AFP.Police said the bomber struck when Bilour was about to address some 200 supporters.Local television channels broadcast live scenes of ambulances arriving at the site and rushing victims to the hospital. Some people were seen crying.No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, but there have been dozens of such bombings in recent years in Peshawar.They have often been claimed by the Pakistani Taliban and their allies.The city is considered a gateway to Pakistan’s troubled semi-autonomous tribal regions, where many militant groups-including al Qaeda-operated until the government launched operations to oust them.Militants have targeted politicians, religious gatherings, security forces and even schools in Peshawar.‘Big ball of fire’This was the first major attack on a campaign event for Pakistan’s 25 July general election.Police chief Jameel said the number of casualties was high because the ANP event was taking place at a house in a narrow street.An AFP reporter saw human remains, shoes, broken chairs, and caps littered at the scene.Sartaj Khan, an ANP supporter, sustained wounds on his feet.“I lost consciousness after the blast. The last thing I saw was a big ball of fire,” he said.Another party worker, Yaseen Khan, said a deafening explosion rocked the compound as Haroon Bilour shook hands with supporters.Pakistan’s Election Commission has asked the military to help hold a “free and fair election” in the face of security threats.More than 380,000 personnel will be deployed for the elections, according to Major General Asif Ghafoor, the military spokesman.The ANP and its ally the Pakistan Peoples Party were unable to campaign for the last general election in 2013 because of threats and attacks on their events and supporters by Islamist militant groups like the Pakistani Taliban.But ANP leaders have vowed to continue their campaign this year despite the bombing in Peshawar.Pakistan has been fighting a home grown insurgency since 2004, when militants displaced by the US-led invasion of Afghanistan came to its border tribal areas.These groups have often targeted political parties and leaders opposed to their views. Officials have said that while the threat remains, militants have been significantly weakened because of military operations in recent years.Pakistani militant organisations have claimed responsibility for attacks on several prominent political figures, including the assassination of former prime minister Benazir Bhutto in 2007.last_img read more

first_img“His power came from some great reservoir of spiritual life else it could not have been so universal and so potent, but the majesty and beauty of the language with which he clothed it were all his own.” — Claude Bragdon. The musical play titled Paighamber staged at India Habitat Centre is inspired by the classic The Prophet, written by Dr Kahlil Gibran. The plays revolves around the character Anannt, portrayed by Harsh Mayar. The entire act was divided into many chapters dealing with love, marriage, children, joy and sorrow, buying and selling, crime and punishment, reason and passion, pain, good and evil, beauty, religion, and death.

The play begins with the birth of a human life Anannt, created out of these five elements. In the play, Anannt discusses his life with these elements, portrayed by a group of people.  Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixThe play depicts the various moments in his life when he met Paighamber and how Paighmaber guided and enlightened Anannt with his advice which led him grow up as a better human being. Tom Alter playing the role of Paighamber and Amit Behl in roles of Khalil Gibran, the narrator, showcased their characters with finesse. It was later divulged that the grown up-bright-witted Annant is none other than Dr Kahlil Gibran and the Paighamber who guided him at various aspects of life was his own subconscious. On the musical note, the play incorporates the rich folk music of Chhattisgarh and Haryana and the famous Karma dance form of Chhattisgarh. The manifestation of Khalil Gibran’s famous novel was never less than a life where his believes always regarded humanity.last_img read more
