One of the accused contended that he cannot be said to have shared any common intention with the other accused who are liable for their individual acts. Referring to Section 34 of the Indian Penal Code, the bench observed:”Common intention consists of several persons acting in unison to achieve a common purpose, though their roles may be different. The role may be active or passive is irrelevant, once common intention is established. There can hardly be any direct evidence of common intention. It is more a matter of inference to be drawn from the facts and circumstances of 10 a case based on the cumulative assessment of the nature of evidence available against the participants. The foundation for conviction on the basis of common intention is based on the principle of vicarious responsibility by which a person is held to be answerable for the acts of others with whom he shared the common intention. The presence of the mental element or the intention to commit the act if cogently established is sufficient for conviction, without actual participation in the assault. It is therefore not necessary that before a person is convicted on the ground of common intention, he must be actively involved in the physical activity of assault. If the nature of evidence displays a pre­arranged plan and acting in concert pursuant to the plan, common intention can be inferred. A common intention to bring about a particular result may also develop on the spot as between a number of persons deducible from the facts and circumstances of a particular case. The coming together of the accused to the place of occurrence, some or all of whom may be armed, the manner of assault, the active or passive role played by the accused, are but only some of the materials for drawing inferences. (Para 13)  The Court, took note of the facts of the case, noted that the accused waited along with the other two accused at the crime scene who were armed and when the deceased tried to flee, the accused also chased him. To our mind no further evidence is required with regard to existence of common intention to commit the offence in question, the bench observed while dismissing appeal.Case name: SUBED ALI vs. THE STATE OF ASSAMCase no.: CRIMINAL APPEAL NO.1401 OF 2012  Coram: Justices RF Nariman, Navin Sinha and Indira Banerjee Counsel: Advocate Gaurav AgrawalClick here to Read/Download JudgmentRead Judgment Next Storylast_img read more

Tardigrade remains from lake sediments

first_imgRemains of tardigrades have rarely been reported to preserve in sediments, resulting in the absence of important ecological and biogeographic information that they could provide. However, a study of faunal microfossils in Antarctic lake sediment cores has shown that tardigrade eggs and occasionally exuvia can be abundant. Eggs from at least five tardigrade species were identified in sediment cores from six lakes from across the continent, with abundances up to 6,000 (g(-1) dry wt.). It is likely that the cold temperatures and absence of benthic grazers in Antarctic lakes results in particularly good preservation conditions, though it may also be a function of population density. The conservation of tardigrade eggs and exuvia in lake sediments enables a better understanding of paleodistributions and effects of environmental changes for this phylum that cannot otherwise be obtained.last_img read more

Hoboken City Council seeks the public’s input on the Neumann Leathers…

first_imgHOBOKEN — During this week’s council meeting there will be a presentation on potential development options for the Neumann Leathers project. Members of the community are invited to review the options and attend the June 21 council meeting, and voice their views.The council passed the Neumann Leathers Redevelopment Plan in Dec. 2015. The goals of the plan included preserving the historic buildings of Neumann Leathers, preserving the existing light manufacturing and arts businesses that are currently operating in Neumann Leathers, and creating new public spaces. Some residential density was included in the plan to achieve these goals. All of the possible alternatives have the same 230 units of residential development, but reconfigure the development in different ways.While there was a community process to finalize the approved plan, the press release states residents at 415 Newark St. next to the development have concerns about the location of the residential element of the plan. To address these concerns, the property owner’s architect met with some residents and showed them several concepts that shift some of the residential density to the east, away from their building. These concepts would also demolish some Neumann Leathers buildings and eliminate some of the public open space required by the Redevelopment Plan, according to the press release.The City Council will be asked to take a vote to express its views on a preferred option at the following July 5 council meeting.The city will then move forward with possibly amending the current redevelopment plan, if needed, and then negotiating a redevelopment agreement.“A plan that would demolish significant Neumann Leathers buildings is not an option that I could support, however, residents in the neighborhood have expressed concerns about the adopted redevelopment plan, and we want to get input from the community and Council to reach consensus on a preferred direction,” said Mayor Dawn Zimmer in a press release. “Based on the results of a city council vote, the administration will then work with the council to possibly amend the plan and then negotiate a redevelopment agreement to move forward with the project.”To view the possible options go to http://hobokennj.gov/2017/06/city-seeks-community-input-on-neumann-leathers-alternative-concepts/ ×last_img read more

Village Bakery aims for environmental first

first_imgA Welsh business intends to become the greenest bakery in Britain after installing more than 1,000 solar panels on its premises in Wrexham.The Village Bakery will operate on solar energy during the majority of daylight hours in the summer months as a result of the new 250-kilowatt system installed at its new Baking Academy and Innovation Centre.The investment forms part of a wider campaign to make the business as sustainable as possible – since 2012 the company, which also has a bakery in Minera, has slashed the use of electricity by 18%.“The solar panels are a really exciting development and are in line with The Village Bakery’s ethos of being a responsible, environmentally-friendly and sustainable business,” said Ashley Dawson, the family firm’s business and sustainability executive.“It will mean we can operate the Wrexham production site throughout the day off our own renewable energy. Effectively, it will become a solar-powered bakery. During the night time, the energy we buy from the grid is renewable energy anyway… so during the day, we’ll be working with our own renewable energy and during the night someone else’s renewable energy.”Over the past three years The Village Bakery has achieved a 33% reduction in waste – the equivalent of 66 tonnes of waste or 66 small cars.last_img read more
