RAFIABAD

Gani-vakilHis opponents have deliberately skipped using the alleged sex tape against Congressman Abdul Gani Vakil but it is still the clip that is most sought after in Rafiabad. It has even reached Congress high command that has asked some Delhi based Kashmiris to translate the language. But he is not facing music alone. A secretary in Congress Pawan Raina in Miran Sahab is accused of beating a juvenile and a case under Child Labour Act 1986 stands registered against him. Even in Inderwal, NCs new convert to BJP Tariq Hussain Keen has also been allegedly caught talking indecently to a woman. It is slightly longer: 15.54 minutes! Keen says it is a conspiracy against him.

PULWAMA

Gh-Nabi-RatanpuriAfter leaving Aakaashvani, NCs Pulwama candidate Ghulam Nabi Ratanpuri has been on the wrong side of the track, almost always. After being sent to the Rajya Sabha, he was supposed to use the influence of his government in the state and create his vote bank. He picked a battle with police and the party leadership as a result of which he talked less in Parliament and more in media! When the hatchet was buried, he got mandate for Pulwama, his activities came to grind halt when stone-pelters attacked him. Last picture showed him being taken out of Bones & Joints Hospital.

KATHUA

Babu-Singh-2Contestants in Kathua have gone too far. Police have already registered a case against former Minister Babu Singh, now a Congress candidate, and his two brothers – Ravinder and Satinder. They are accused of entering into the house of Neelam Sharma, wife of PDP candidate, with supporters and harassing her. She had petitioned the police but after there was no response, she approached court. The trespass is termed to be the follow-up of firing Nitin, son of Subash Sharma, near Babu’s residence. After firing incident, police had detained Nitin and seized his weapon and registered a case against him. Nitin is grandson of Congress’s former Deputy Chief Minister Mangat Ram Sharma.

JAMMU

Vickrant-MahajanTwo months, two records and all set to have third in his kitty. Jammu boy, Vickrant Mahajan seems to be in hurry. His speed makes him to register his name in the prestigious Guinness Book of World Records, first in September and then in November 2014. After running his mouth marathon for 48 hours and 31 minutes, he became first film maker in the history of cinema to write, shoot, edit, mix and release a feature film, “Yes Thank You Universe” in less than 24 hours (21 hours to be precise). Not only this, the young man at Harper Collins Publishers in New Delhi has also edited books by the likes of late Khushwant Singh and legendary Javed Akhtar. Vickrant must be laughing at the saying, ‘slow and steady wins the race.’

VADODARA

He claims to be caught between devil and deep sea. It all started in Vadodara when a native of Kashmir, Shariq Saiyad Refaai, 27, was picked by cops. Shariq with fake name Devang Sharma was found carrying a fake passport, PAN card and driving licence, enough to set the alarm bells ringing in the city police department. Though cops did not rule out terror angle, Shariq pleads that he was forced to be fake by Gujaritis working in Mumbai, for whom he worked, Still behind bars, it is matter of time if reality prevails and Shariq reclaims his identity.

There were 3441 registered migrant voters in four constituencies of Kashmir including 852 in Kangan, 597 in Bandipora, 844 in Ganderbal and 203 in Sonawari. Out of these, only 1860 had filled the M-form
