Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia met Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung on Thursday in connection with the police’s suspected role in the death of the man identified as 35-year-old Shahnawaz Chaudhary “The police comes under the Lt-Governor and hence the chief minister and the deputy chief minister met him to ask the Lt-Governor about the police’s questionable actions in this case” said sources in the government Meanwhile the sub-divisional magistrate (SDM) of Seemapuri Rakesh Kumar who is heading the probe into Chaudhary’s death submitted an interim inquiry report to the District Magistrate Abhishek Singh on Thursday The report pointed out that the role of seven police officers and the Station House Officer of Nand Nagri police station was under the scanner and the possibility — that Chaudhary died after the assault by the police officers — could not be ruled out “Two aspects of the case were inquired into Whether the police used force and their negligence led to the victim’s death and the detention of the victim’s wife at the police station till 230 am According to Supreme Court guidelines no woman can be detained by the police after sunset” said Singh Chaudhry’s wife has allegedly told the SDM that he was “suffocated” On the possible cause of death Kumar said “As per his wife’s statement it appears that the death was due to suffocation” She had told the committee that while trying to restrain Chaudhary three policemen had pinned him to the floor of the police van and then “sat on him” said Kumar According to Singh the role of the seven officers was being examined and the action of the station house officer under whose watch the incident took place was also under the scanner “The interim report is being finalised We will wait for the post-mortem reports to arrive so that the exact time of death is known But the possibility of the police’s assault being the cause of Chaudhry’s death cannot be ruled out” Singh said The Delhi government had ordered the inquiry after a video — allegedly showing the policemen beating up and kicking Chaudhary — surfaced However the police have maintained that the deceased had not been beaten up “When we went to the spot a few people told us that the police had beaten Chaudhary up with their batons and kicked him as he lay on the ground” said Kumar “The doctors said that by the time Chaudhary reached the hospital he was dead I also met the head of the forensics department but he refused to divulge any details about the post-mortem report He said that in a few days he will submit the report to the metropolitan magistrate of the Karkardooma court” he said He will request the court for a copy of the post-mortem report said Kumar adding that after analysing it he will submit his report to the government Meanwhile Chaudhary’s family members have claimed that he died after being beaten up by the police “In the video it is clear that he is being beaten up It seems that after my brother was pushed into the PCR van he was choked The chain he was wearing around his neck had come undone; it was handed over to us later He might have died of suffocation” said his brother Danish Chaudhary The Delhi Police remained tight-lipped on the issue with Joint Commissioner of Police Sanjay Beniwal saying he did not want to comment on the ongoing inquiry “Why should I comment when the inquiry is on If the metropolitan magistrate says that it is a case of murder or it comes under Section 304 (punishment for culpable homicide not amounting to murder) or 174 (non-attendance in obedience to an order from public servant) we will abide by it” added Beniwal He pointed out that the inquiry committee seemed to have drawn conclusions about the cause of death without waiting for the post-mortem report “How can they talk about the possible cause of death before the post-mortem” asked Beniwal The final report will be submitted to Divisional Commissioner A Anbarasu by Friday evening said Singh For all

real test this year is whether Xi can sustain the campaign with the same level of intensity CR Sasi kumar Related News Xi Jinping’s anti-corruption drive differs from his predecessors’ attempts A ferocious campaign against corruption launched by Chinese leader Xi Jinping a year ago has surprised many observers Shortly after his installation as the new chief of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Xi vowed to “kill flies and tigers” Chinese slang for junior and senior officials Xi’s pledge to purge the rot out of the Chinese party-state was initially greeted with cynicism Such campaigns had been waged in the past by Xi’s predecessors with no lasting effect Typically a new leader coming to power would use corruption charges against his political rivals and win temporary popular support Once such short-term objectives are accomplished he would move on to other priorities But this time it seems different The campaign has lasted much longer and by many measures is significantly tougher So far it has claimed hundreds and thousands of “flies” and more than a dozen “tigers” Figures released by the CPC’s own anti-corruption committee show that more than 182000 party members including 18 high-ranking officials at levels of vice minister and above were punished for various misdeeds in 2013 The drive against corruption has also hurt the businesses that used to cater to venal bureaucrats High-end restaurants for example have lost their most lucrative customers — government officials wined and dined at the expense of taxpayers or private businessmen seeking favours The once-booming luxury retail sector is now in full retreat as fewer officials dare to accept expensive “gifts” In 2013 for example sales of luxury Swiss watches in China fell 11 per cent Although leading Western luxury brands do not disclose sales data for China nearly all of them have reported falling revenues for 2013 largely due to the weakness in the Chinese market Much of the credit for the surprising outcome is owed to the new tactics and rules adopted by the Xi administration in particular his anti-corruption chief Wang Qishan who heads the CPC’s Discipline and Inspection Committee Wang closely allied with Xi (they became friends when both were teenagers) is known internationally as a savvy and tough economic technocrat He earned his nickname “fire-fighter” because the party had often relied on him to deal with crises In March 2003 Wang was appointed the acting mayor of Beijing during the epidemic of the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) In November 2012 when the party appointed the new Politburo Standing Committee (PSC) China’s top decision-making body Wang was to the surprise of most observers given the anti-corruption portfolio even though his speciality had been finance and foreign trade It is now clear that Xi assigned Wang this powerful slot because he would need an ally to be in charge of his war on corruption Doubtlessly Xi should be very pleased with his choice In the past year Wang instituted two important changes that gave his agency more power to conduct anti-corruption probes One is to send a large number of “inspection” teams to provinces and large state-owned enterprises (such teams were in existence before but conducted infrequent inspection tours) These teams are headed by a retired minister-level official who reports directly to Wang’s committee They typically interview local officials privately to collect tips and information on the misconduct of their colleagues This initiative makes it harder for local officials to hide their corrupt behaviour because some of their colleagues normally rivals for power have incentives to denounce them Another important initiative credited to Wang is to require that any corruption investigation conducted in a jurisdiction must be reported to the anti-corruption agency at a superior level This is again to prevent cover-ups While these innovative steps seem to have made a real difference in fighting China’s endemic corruption Xi’s war is far from being won The real test this year is whether he can sustain the campaign with the same level of intensity At the moment all eyes are on the ongoing investigation into a case involving a recently retired member of the PSC Zhou Yongkang who used to be China’s powerful internal security chief In 2013 nearly all of Zhou’s protégés were arrested They included a vice minister of public security several vice provincial governors and the former head of China National Petroleum Corporation the largest energy company in China The most ominous sign that Zhou’s fate is hanging in balance is the recent arrest of his former executive assistant who must be privy to many of his secrets Based on the most recent media revelations the case against Zhou could be China’s biggest and ugliest scandal that would make Bo Xilai (a Zhou ally) look like small fry by comparison Although Zhou himself has not been mentioned directly the unfolding scandal involves immediate family His son daughter-in-law and brother have all been detained Zhou’s son has amassed a huge fortune through shady dealings with state-owned companies and businesses purportedly connected with organised crime Chinese media reports have publicly identified Zhou’s son as a close friend of a notorious billionaire mafia boss who is on trial for murder and other violent criminal activities Punters in Beijing believe that Zhou is now destined to fall despite the party’s unwritten rule of not prosecuting members or retired members of the PSC Of course the ultimate decision rests with Xi who needs to consider two serious risks The first risk is that prosecuting Zhou a tiger of mammoth proportions could jeopardise the party’s leadership unity Zhou’s allies of course would be upset Even those unconnected with Zhou would feel fearful The second risk is that washing the party’s dirtiest laundry in public could achieve the opposite political effects Instead of reassuring the public that the party can be saved through a reinvigorated fight against corruption the Zhou case with its astonishing magnitude of criminality could paradoxically convince the Chinese people that the party is indeed rotten to the core and all but unsalvageable Since Zhou has not been seen in public for over a year it is all but certain that he is under detention Most observers thought the Chinese government would formally announce his arrest after Xi completed his high-profile visit to Europe in late March So far nothing has happened The official silence on Zhou may indicate continuing high-level dispute over his fate If Zhou miraculously escapes the anti-corruption dragnet Xi would definitely be seen as a loser But if Xi puts Zhou inside the proverbial “tiger cage” he will make all his political rivals shake with fear So stay tuned The writer is professor of government and non-resident senior fellow at the German Marshall Fund of the US For all the
