first_imgAn Indian Canadian was declared inadmissible to Canada on grounds of organized criminality after he was found to have engaged in people smuggling in 2015. The Canadian federal court order was released last month.Karamdeep Singh Bagri, an Indian national who gained permanent residentship in Canada in 2008, was arrested on Jan. 12, 2015, in Washington State by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security for having picked up five Indian nationals who had just crossed illegally into the United States from Canada.The case was being heard in the federal court after Bagri applied for a judicial review of an earlier Immigration and Refugee Board decision rendering him inadmissible for being part of a “criminal organization.”Bagri, 31, was arrested south of the border by Abbotsford, British Columbia, with two men, two women and a child in his rental vehicle. He said that it was the first time he picked up illegal aliens. He also said that he entered the United States to pick up two of those individuals and was supposed to be paid $1,000 for his services, and that he had made several previous attempts to transport undocumented immigrants, but had been unsuccessful.The plan for this was hatched in a parking lot of a gurdwara in October 2014, when he met someone called “Babba.” He was on the phone with this Babba when he was caught.According to the court order, he was interviewed thrice by representatives of the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA), during which he made contradicting statements. Member McPhalen of the Immigration Division of the Immigration and Refugee Board rejected testimony provided by Bagri which contradicted certain statements that he had made in his prior interviews with the CBSA.McPhalen said it was obvious Bagri knew that he was “involved in something illegal.” He was found to have aided and abetted the illegal entry of the five people into the United States, because his “part of the scheme was to pick them up on the U.S. side of the border.” Bagri himself carried a visa with which he could make multiple trips to the United States.According to U.S. Justice Department statistics, 731 Indian nationals sought asylum south of the border in 2010, which increased to 2,277 by 2015.According to Immigration and Refugee Protection Act, SC 2001, c 27 a permanent resident or a foreign national is inadmissible on grounds of organized criminality and engaging in transnational crime such as people smuggling, trafficking in persons or laundering of money or other proceeds of crime.

first_imgThe world’s largest ever gene mapping exercise has found that the “genetic landscape of the Indian population captures the genetic diversity of the world.”The Indian Genome Variation Consortium (IGVC) study by the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) mapped nearly 1,871 human genomes from 55 Indian endogamous population groups (in which members marry within the group). The good news, according to CSIR director general Sameer Brahmachari, who headed the study: “The Indian population forms a continuum of genetic spectrum bridging the two distinct HapMap populations, the Caucasians and the Oriental Asians.”The study concluded: “In fact the term ‘Indian,’ is a misnomer in population genetic studies, as it indicates the population to be homogeneous. This is evidently now untrue.”Unveiling the findings, Science and Technology Minister Kapil Sibal said, “India is a microcosm of the world and the current findings only enforce that India is a genetically secular country.” The real objective of the mapping is to gauge susceptibility to and plan medical treatments for diseases. The study found that the Indian population is at higher risk of HIV/AIDS, because even though there is considerable diversity across the length and breadth of the country, many pockets of individual communities are not genetically diverse. Genetically diverse populations are at lower risk of many diseases.The medical and scientific value of these findings is crucial for our survival and well being. Earlier anthropological research ratifies what this study discloses, which is, that the various people from all over the world who settled in India founded a wondrously diverse country. It is this diversity that contributes to our genetic security.The project has cultural implications as well. Diversity in a community is to be valued not simply because it makes life more interesting; it also protects us in the race for survival on this endangered planet. The mutual benefit of living together no matter our origins, is therefore not just a feel-good cultural exercise, it is medically and scientifically desirable as well. The greater our diversity, the more we are open to accommodation and flexibility, the fewer fortresses we construct to shield ourselves from the outside, the higher our chances for battling new and old diseases.Now science cannot ensure diversity. Only our social, political and cultural institutions can do that. As migrants from a culturally and genetically diverse land, it rests on us to advocate the virtues of diversity in this country.India’s genetic study ought to be a lesson for paranoid and xenophobic Americans, demonstrating that far from damaging them, cultural diversity is good for the country. Insular Americans have to abandon the facile idea of holding tight to their “pure” Judeo-Christian civilization. The widespread apprehension some of them have about the country’s changing ethnic composition over the next 50 years stems from sheer ignorance. Cultural diversity is not just virtuous public policy. There is now scientific evidence that our very survival may well depend upon it.   Related Itemslast_img read more

first_imgAn eight—foot—long crocodile was rescued from a roadside drain in the tourist resort of Chiplun in Maharashtra’s coastal Ratnagiri district, officials said on Tuesday.A video of the reptile emerging out of the drain has gone viral on the internet. The incident occurred in Chiplun’s Dadar area, leading to confusion about whether it happened in suburban Mumbai. Forest officials said that the incident occurred last Friday (July 26) when Ratnagiri was lashed by heavy rain leading to floods in the Vashishti River, which originates in the coastal district.The crocodile is suspected to have entered the town’s drainage system which was flooded due to the water overflow from the nearby river. Locals alerted the fire brigade and the Forest Department after they heard some strange sounds emanating from the drain as the huge reptile struggled to escape.“This is quite common in this region during the monsoon. We rescued this crocodile safely. Since it had not suffered any injuries, it was released back into the river,” Divisional Forest Officer V. K. Surve told IANS.“I have been barged with calls… I have said it’s the Dadar area of Chiplun and not the Dadar of Mumbai,” Mr. Surve said with a laugh.He said that apart from this incident, the Divisional Forest Office handles calls to rescue other reptiles like snakes, and last month it rescued a leopard trapped during a torrential downpour.With a population of around 55,000, Chiplun town, 325 kms south of Mumbai is a popular tourist resort and famed for its Alphonso mangoes and kokam, the Savatsada Waterfalls, the Parshuram Temple and other temples, plus a Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Museum.last_img read more
