anti-superstition crusader and rationalist Narendra Dabholkar was shot dead during a morning walk on 20 August 2013 the Central Bureau of Investigation appears to have failed to find any conclusive evidence or the whereabouts of the accused in the case The same appears to be true in the case of Communist leader Govind Pansare who was shot at in Kolhapur in 2015 as well with the Special Investigation Team of Maharashtra Police’s Criminal Investigations Department appointed to investigate the murder conceding before the Bombay High Court that there was little hope now of achieving anything substantial from any further field probe File image of Govind Pansare and Narendra Dabholkar News18/PTI "Field probe including raids at possible hiding places will not lead to anything anymore Our only hope is scientific probe and evidence from call detail records forensics etc" said senior advocate Ashok Mundargi counsel for the state government and the SIT Additional Solicitor General Anil Singh representing the CBI probing Dabholkar’s killing echoed the same view The lawyers view irked the bench of Justices SC Dharamadhikari and Bharati Dangre which rapped the two investigation agencies for their failure to apprehend the culprits in the two cases The bench was hearing pleas by the kin of Dabholkar and Pansare The two justices had sought a court-monitored probe into the killings "How do we then take the case to its logical conclusion" the bench asked "Can we allow for the case to reach a dead-end when similar crimes are on the rise" it asked The bench said while it was not critical so far of the ongoing probes by the two agencies it could not allow them to leave everything to the mere hope that the absconding accused persons in the two cases tired of hiding or fearing threat to their lives would turn themselves in one day "Why don’t you take steps to completely strangulate the organisational backing that the accused persons must be receiving" the bench asked It also directed the agencies to seek the help of expert interrogators in the case The bench warned that if the agencies failed to make any progress by the next date of hearing it would be constrained to summon the senior officials concerned Amid a nation-wide outrage over the Kathua rape-cum-murder and the Unnao rape cases the bench observed that India’s image today has taken a beating with a growing perception abroad that it’s a country of crimes and rapes and the liberal and secular people are not safe here It also said that the rest of the world was now hesitant to engage with India over educational or cultural issues "It is unfortunate that today the image of the country is such that those living abroad feel only crimes and rapes happen in India "Anywhere we go (outside of India) we have to answer a barrage of questions People are under the impression that liberal open-minded and secular people cannot be safe in India and that they are bound to be attacked The image of India is suffering due to the acts of a few people" the bench said "No international body wants to be a part of our educational and cultural projects Investors show interest at first but pull back later on We are very sorry to see this Do we (India) want to live in a cocoon" the bench asked "No institution in the country including the judiciary is spared from this" it said The high court had last year observed that the killings of Dabholkar and Pansare were "well planned" and the perpetrators had an organisational backup With inputs from PTI Tokyo: Malaysia’s newly-elected prime minister called on Monday for the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) to be "renegotiated" and urged protection for small countries in international trade Malaysia along with 10 other countries pushed ahead with the TPP in March despite Donald Trump having yanked the United States out of the huge multilateral trade deal But Mahathir Mohamad told a gathering in Tokyo he was "not very keen" on the agreement "We need TPP renegotiated" he said in a speech to the "Future of Asia" forum "We have to recognise just as there are infant industries there are infant nations nations which are just beginning to grow" he added File image of Mahathir Mohamad Reuters "They need to have some privileges some protection for themselves because they are not in a position to compete with the great trading nations the great manufacturing nations of the world" Around 11 countries circling the Pacific signed a slimmed-down version of the TPP in March opting to proceed with the deal after it was left for dead when Trump pulled out to pursue his "America First" agenda The US president has since sparked fears of a trade war by levying steep tariffs and denouncing unfair trading practices even rejecting a joint communique at the G7 summit over trade disagreement Mahathir on his first foreign trip since a surprise election victory in May said countries like Malaysia needed a helping hand in international trade "The countries with little capacity to compete must be given due consideration It is like playing golf The weakest people get the highest handicaps" he said "In that way competition would be much fairer" The signatories to the TPP represent 135 percent of the global economy and a market of 500 million people The deal was pushed by former US president Barack Obama’s administration in part
