Security personnel at the site where the cop was shot at on Saturday | ZAHOOR PUNJABI Militants shoot cop from behind in Srinagar, killed MILITANTS killed an sub-inspector of Jammu and Kashmir Police in downtown Srinagar on Sunday, with the attack being caught on CCTV cameras. It was the second such attack in Srinagar in the last three days after the grenade attack in Chanapora area on Friday. A CRPF jawan and a woman were injured in the grenade blast. Sub Inspector Arshid Ashraf Mir at Khanyar area was shot twice from a close range in downtown Srinagar at around 1.40 pm. Mir was evacuated to Sheri Kashmir Institute of Medical Sciences-Soura, where he succumbed to injuries. Immediately after the militant attack, police and CRPF men launched a search operation to track down militants responsible for the attack. However, no arrests were reported during the hour-long search operation. In a CCTV footage, which has gone viral on social media, a militant is seen firing from behind at Mir, who hailed from Handwara area of border district of Kupwara. J&K Director General of Police Dilbagh Singh said the perpetrators involved in the attack were identified and will be brought to justice. All investigating agencies and special teams are investigating today’s attack, he told reporters at the wreath laying ceremony aat District Police Lines. “Soon we will crack it (the case).” He, however, refused to name the militant group involved in the attack. “In Srinagar, dozens of militant modules involved in grenade attacks and killing of security men and civilians have been busted. When an old team is busted, a new team tries to take over their place. We have identified the members of the new module and they will be brought to justice soon,” the J&K police chief said. FORGET the short list, he was not even on the speculated long list to become outgoing chief minister Vijay Rupani’s successor. The BJP on Sunday pulled a rabbit out of the hat by giving the chief ministerial baton to political greenhorn Bhupendra Patel, a first-term MLA with no ministerial experience. Seen as a protégé of UP Governor Anandiben Patel, he represents her Ghatlodia seat in the Assembly. Patel, 59, later met Governor Acharya Devvrat along with Rupani to take stake his claim for the hot seat. He is also associated with a couple of Patidar outfits as well. A civil engineer by qualification and builder by profession, he will take the oath of office and secrecy on Monday . The soft-spoken, low profile Patel will now lead the state BJP to polls in 2022. The Ghatlodia MLA told reporters that he was grateful to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, BJP chief J P Nadda, and Union minister Amit Shah for the trust they reposed in him. “The selection of Bhupendra Patel is a master stroke of Anandiben Patel. The BJP has C R Paatil, BJP state president killed many birds with one stone. It is also to checkmate Deputy Chief Minister Nitin Patel because both come from the same region and are Kadva Patels, a sub-caste of the Patel community said a senior jour,” nalist based in Gujarat, adding it will also possibly end Patidar agitations in the state. After Union ministers Narendra Singh Tomar and Pralhad Joshi flew in from Delhi as observers, they held a series of meetings with senior party functionaries.

The last woman to achieve that remarkable feat at the US Open was the legendary Serena Williams, who won every set in 2014 NEW MODEL Mental gymnastics for honing students’ skills M U K E S H R A N J A N @ Ranchi AS he kept climbing the academic ladder abroad, Mohammad Sajid Hussain (35) realised how outdated the one-way dissemination of knowledge from teacher to students through monologue was. He figured that was why his fellow students back home fell off the knowledge radar. So, Sajid quit his high-flying job at the National Aerospace Laboratory (NAL), returned to Chitar pur, his village in Jharkhand, to start a Schoolasium – a portmanteau word coined by combining school and gymnasium – to change the way the underprivileged were taught. Seven years on, Schoolasium has turned into a resource centre for schools attempting to emulate its experiential learning model. Sajid claimed his model has been adopted by over 120 government and private schools in Gumla, Palamu, Koderma, Hazaribagh, R a m g a r h , J a m s h e d p u r, Dhanbad and even in some districts of Bihar. At Schoolasium, instructors make students exercise their brains through practical lessons, similar to the way physical workouts build body muscles. This teaching methodology is called Maker Oriented Pedagogy (MOP), which is a play-based learning system seeking to make children problem solvers through practical life lessons. Recalling how lack of support from their school stopped many of his classmates from realising their true potential, Sajid said: “I returned to my village to change the learning process. Things here are not in tune first discussed in the core committee meeting before it was taken up at the BJP legislature party meeting. The proposal to elevate Bhupendra Patel was moved by Rupani, after which almost all lawmakers fell in line. Most of the 112 MLAs of the party in the 182-member Assembly were present at the meeting. However, Deputy Chief Minister Nitin Patel, who was in the race for chief ministership, left the meeting without making any statement, while BJP’s state unit president C R Paatil had earlier said he was not a contender for the top post. In poll-bound Uttarakhand too, the BJP chose Pushkar Singh Dhami as chief minister to replace Tirath Singh Rawat, though the former had no ministerial experience. Patel will be the first-ever CM from Ahemadabad. He won the 2017 Assembly elections from Ghatlodia, defeating Congress candidate Shashikant Patel by a margin of over one lakh votes, the highest winning margin in that elections. His Assembly constituency is part of the Gandhinagar Lok Sabha seat represented by Union minister Amit Shah. SYLLABUS ROW BE CAUGHT?

The diamonds, collectively weighing 156.46 carats, were quarried from mines in the district, said Panna’s diamond officer. These precious stones also include a 14.09 carat diamond, which was found by a labourer in Februrary this year and remained unsold in the previous auction. It is expected to be the main attraction and may fetch about `70 lakh, officials said, adding that it will be the biggest gem to be put up for the auction this time.

I want the learning process in rural areas to be vibrant.” Sajid studied at a madarsa till class VI, before joining Chitarpur High School. After doing his Masters from IISc, Bengaluru, he went to Germany to earn his PhD and returned to India in 2012, when he landed the NAL job. His exposure to varied teaching models made him realise that a combination of poor academic condition and lack of access to educational infrastructure was the reason behind students failing to realise their full potential. CONTINUED ON: P8 CONGRESS leader Shashi Tharoor on Sunday came out in support of the controversial Kannur University syllabus that includes chapters on RSS ideologues V D Savarkar and M S Golwalkar. “What is the point of going to universities if you want to read only what you like?” Tharoor asked. The reaction from the f l a m b o ya n t T h i r u v a n a n thapuram MP, considered the intellectual face of the Congress, comes at a time when the party’s leaders in the state have taken up cudgels against the Sangh Parivar for the inclusion of RSS ideologues in the syllabus for the post-graduate students of K a n n u r University . Tharoor, a celebrated author and orator, recalled that he had quoted at length on Veer Savarkar and M S Golwalkar in his books and then refuted them. The Congress’ member of Parliament said it is foolish to believe that ignorance of someone’s ideas will help one defeat them. “Some friends disapprove of my stand that academic freedom requires us to read, understand & debate every point of view, including those we disagree with. If we don’t read Savarkar & Golwalkar, on what basis will we oppose their ideas? #KannurUniversity also teaches Gandhi & Tagore. Intellectual freedom is far too important a value in our society to be sacrificed at the altar of party politics,” he tweeted. Governor Arif Mohammed Khan had also supported the Kannur University for introducing the chapters on Saturday though the move drew flak , from senior Congress leader V M Sudheeran.
