MAN ARRESTED AFTER CROSS-BORDER CAR CHASE

first_imgGARDAÍ have arrested one man and investigations are continuing after a high speed car chase involving police on both sides of the Border.A cross-Border alert between Gardaí and the PSNI was triggered last night when a car failed to stop for police in Derry.The vehicle drove at speed into Donegal and was picked up by Gardaí in St Johnston. The car was found abandoned near Raphoe. A man was later arrested running across nearby fields.The incident is the latest involving cross-Border cooperation between the two forces.We understand this has been stepped up in recent weeks in response to criminal gangs operating in the North and targeting people in Donegal.Last week two men and a women suspected of thefts in Dungloe and Glenties were detained in Derry following a text alert. Gardaí and PSNI officers continue to also meet each other on joint Border checkpoints.Below is a picture of one such meeting last week.MAN ARRESTED AFTER CROSS-BORDER CAR CHASE was last modified: November 11th, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:chasecross-BorderGardaPSNIlast_img read more

Crucial CWG file goes missing from OC office

first_imgAfter accusing organising committee (OC) chief Suresh Kalmadi and his aide Lalit Bhanot of creating hindrances in the probe, the investigating agencies now claim that some crucial documents which could throw light on the deals related to Commonwealth Games (CWG) have gone missing.Sources told Headlines Today that the contractual obligations and authorisation files related to the Queen’s Baton Relay are not available. They said that Gen Raj Kadiyan was bypassed on arrangements for the relay.The probe agencies fear that the absent documents could have either been destroyed or hidden.The revelation came during a series of searches carried out by a team of 20-30 sleuths at the OC office and its secretary general Lalit Bhanot’s residence in November. In order to get a grip on the investigation process, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) would approach sports ministry for the removal of Kalmadi and Bhanot.CBI Director A.P. Singh had earlier this month written to Union Cabinet Secretary K.M. Chandrashekar urging the immediate removal of Kalmadi and Bhanot from their posts in the OC.It was earlier reported in September that a crucial file containing information on Mahendroo’s record of service and details of his trips to the UK for the baton relay had gone missing from the OC office.A number of agencies — Central Vigilance Commission (CVC), Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG), Enforcement Directorate (ED) and CBI — are on the look out to nail the perpetrators who indulged in irregularities during the mega sporting event held in October 2010.advertisementThe CBI has so far filed three FIRs in connection with the alleged irregularities in CWG and searched the residences of OC director general V.K. Verma and Bhanot on November 30.While one case is related to a Rs 107-crore deal struck with a Swiss score keeping firm, the agency had registered two other FIRs for the contracting of AM Films for the Baton Relay ceremonies by the OC in London.The CBI had arrested OC’s joint director general T.S. Darbari and deputy director general Sanjay Mohindroo for their alleged complicity in these deals.last_img read more
