Delhi Govt. in favour of execution of Nirbhaya culprits at the earliest: Manish Sisodia


Senior Aam Aadmi Party leader, Manish Sisodia on Thursday condemned Union Minister Prakash Javadekar over the execution of Nirbhaya case convicts. He said that the Delhi Govt. is of the view that the sentence must be carried out at the earliest and that the Delhi Govt. had immediately rejected the mercy petition and sent it to the LG. Sisodia stated that BJP is blatantly lying to save the failure of their administration and if they handover control of Delhi police to the AAP Govt, the sentence would be carried out within 48 hours. He also asked Javadekar to enquire with the union home minister, about the delay in the matter.

Sisodia said, “ This morning, I was busy filing my nomination and was asked by media to respond to statements made by Prakash Javadekar in his PC.  I watched visuals of his PC  to find out what what said and it really pained me to see a Minister in the Central Government blatantly lying on such a sensitive matter and that too, before the entire nation  and surprisingly, with no hesitation whatsoever. This is a crucial and sensitive matter, with everyone including Nirbhaya’s parents and the women of this nation waiting for justice to be delivered and they lie so blatantly about it.”

He said that the Delhi Government is in favour of time-bound conviction and execution of rapists, as per due process. But how can the BJP blame us for any delay?

“I want to remind Javadekar, that  the BJP led government and  the Home ministry directs and controls the police and is responsible for law and order in Delhi and for administration of Tihar jail. The DG of Tihar reports to you and then you blame us for the delay? I want to ask you, Mr Javadekar will you take cognizance of your responsibilities of jurisdiction of Delhi Police, maintaining law and order in Delhi  and the administration  of Tihar jail  and the appointment of  its DG  or are you going to suddenly deny these responsibilities? Whenever your failings and  inefficiencies are highlighted and your irresponsibility comes under scrutiny, you begin to mislead people just when elections are on the anvil, to somehow use it to cover up your bungling and inefficiency,” said Sisodia.

Ghaziabad SSP starts Law & Order Cell to mobilise adequate police force during exigent situations


Ghaziabad SSP Kalanidhi Naithani has started a Law & Order Cell to “strengthen policing.”

According to the SSP during various category of events, festive occasions and functions or sudden exigencies—where large number of cops have to be mobilized—extra police force has to be called in from other districts and vice-versa. In other words the district police has to be dependent on PAC or CRPF and other forces to maintain law & order during such events. Now in order to optimize available manpower this new cell has been set up that will effectively deal with exigencies and sudden situations or events of large magnitude and other happenings that have an impact on law & order.

It will be headed by an inspector who will coordinate with LIU and other wings of the police and will mobilise police personnel whenever & wherever needed.

IIT Roorkee researchers discover compound that kills many antibiotic resistant bacteria

IIT Roorkee

Researchers at the Indian Institute of Technology, Roorkee have discovered a novel compound that can effectively kill a multitude of notorious antibiotic resistant bacteria.

Antibiotics have been considered as the cornerstones of both basic and modern medicine and it is difficult to envisage a world without them. However, injudicious over the counter sales and excessive use and abuse of antibiotics in poultry, livestock and agriculture has given rise to the global problem of antibiotic resistance.

With the ever-increasing rise in drug resistant superbugs and lack of effective antibiotics against them, it has become imperative to search for novel antibacterial molecules. Moreover, gram negative bacterial pathogens present a major threat owing to their outer membrane permeability barrier and presence of efflux pumps that may act as tiny motors to flush antibiotics out of the bacterial cells. 

In a new study published in the journal, ‘Journal of Antimicrobial Chemotherapy’, IIT Roorkee researchers screened a library of 11,000 compounds against the Gram negative bacteria, Escherichia coli and discovered 30 novel potent anti-bacterials.

The research team led by Dr. Ranjana Pathania, Associate Professor at the Department of Biotechnology, IIT Roorkee identified a small molecule “IITR06144” that can kill highly multidrug resistant strains of Escherichia coliAcinetobacter baumannii, Klebsiella pneumonia as well as Mycobacterium tuberculosis. The molecule also showed promising activity against the diarrhoea causing bacteria, Clostridium difficile and the wound pathogen, Staphylococcus aureus.

The aim of this study was to evaluate the biological properties of a small molecule, IITR06144, identified in a phenotypic screen against the Gram negative model organism Escherichia coli.

The team compared the properties of IITR06144 with structurally analogous antibiotics Nitrofurantoin and Furazolidone, which are commonly administered in clinics for the treatment of urinary tract infections (UTIs) and intestinal ailments respectively. UTIs are one of the world’s most common infections known to be associated with frequent cases of recurrence in female patients. Considering the global antibiotic resistance catastrophe, only a few “front-line” drugs prove to be effective against them. IITR06144 inhibited the growth of several nitrofurantoin resistant UTI pathogens isolated from clinics and proved to be a powerful weapon against antibiotic tolerant E. coli strains, which are responsible for infection relapse and recurrence.

IITR06144 acts by targeting multiple pathways in the bacterial cell such as DNA repair and cell division machinery. Since multi-targeting antibiotics are less prone to resistance generation, therefore IITR06144 holds immense therapeutic potential as a novel antibacterial.  Importantly, while most of the antibiotics currently prescribed in clinics seem to kill the healthy gut bacteria, IITR06144 did not inhibit them, this being one of the most desirable properties of a novel antibacterial.

IITR06144 also displayed considerable in vivo efficacy to rescue mice suffering from A. baumannii infection, which is one of the most troublesome pathogens and tops the WHO’s (World Health Organisation) list of threats that urgently need new antibiotics.
