Man jailed for murder cleared
A man who served 14 years of a life sentence for murder has had his conviction quashed after evidence revealed that his confession to police had been obtained during three days of questioning without a solicitor present. The overturned conviction is the latest miscarriage of justice involving interview evidence obtained by officers from Nottinghamshire Police during the Eighties.

The Court of Appeal yesterday declared the murder conviction of Patrick Nolan "unsafe". Mr Nolan, who was 19 at the time, was found guilty of bludgeoning 64-year-old Eric Carver to death while he slept at ... Read more

UT Police form anti-corruption

Chandigarh, November 18: The Chandigarh Police have come up with an ‘Anti-Corruption-cum-Special Crime Investigation Cell’ in the wake of the increasing corruption incidents in the city police department.

The cell would not only be identifying and nailing the ‘black-sheep’ of the UT Police, but would also tie up with other police forces from states including Delhi, Punjab, Haryana and Himachal Pradesh. The cell would also collect and study data pertaining to criminals active in the region and those who are involved in crime in any of the states.

Though sources said the cell has already started functioning, senior UT Police officials said they are in the process of setting up the crime investigation cell and would soon be designating different tasks to different squads (all members of the cell).

The investigation cell would be headed by SSP (Headquarters) Vivek Gogia, who has recently joined the UT Police. He was in New Delhi before.

SSP Gogia told Newsline, ‘‘The cell would not only be working towards eradicating corruption but also deal with disseminating other crime-related information. There are a number of officers who have been made members of this cell and would be allocated tasks depending upon their capabilities.’’

It may be mentioned that in a short span of a few months, the CBI (Chandigarh unit) netted a number of UT Police personnel in corruption cases.

Following this, UT Inspector General of Police Satish Chandra had also transferred the incharges of the units/police stations, whose men were caught taking bribe.

Sources said the cell would be operating from three different parts of the city - one from the Police Headquarters, second from a marketplace in Sector 9 or 10 and the third office would be in a prominent hotel in Sector 17
