Innocents Accused Wrongly Arrested by CBI 

CBI has been reprimanded by the Delhi Court for arresting its own officer Rakesh Asthana & ruining his career. Asthana was arrested on charges of bribery on the basis of an FIR by businessman Satish Sana. 

Sana was involved in a case of Moin Qureshi & was being interrogated by Rakesh Asthana. 

He alleged he sent bribes to accused Manoj Prasad, the primary suspect in the bribery case to help him save face in the CBI case.  

Moreover, he also alleged that Asthana had demanded a bribe from him to spare him any legal action in the case.  

CBI Director Alok Verma had Asthana arrested & ruined his career. Asthana too accused Alok of corruption & later was granted a clean chit from the court. 

Another innocent that was wrongly accused was Someshwar Srivastav who even after cooperating with the CBI was not allowed to visit his family. 

The media has made false claims on this issue accusing Someshwar Srivastav & Rakesh Asthana & not mentioning the main accused Manoj Prasad, degrading their status further. 

One such site is Deccan Herald who in the past has had instances of providing fake news & claims & hiding the real facts.  

The 2 sites below are proof that Deccan Herald is not a genuine source but is Anti-nationalist, gives fake claims in national sports & is Left-center biased due to lack of genuine reporting sources.

Debt Market Opportunities – A Brief

With the current economic scenario including the rise in inflation & recession faced by developed economies, India has also taken its free share of damage among the others.

The RBI recently hiked the repo rates which are seen as a measure taken by the government to curb inflation.

However, even with the rise in repo rate, the market opportunities have not dwindled. One such opportunity is found in the Debt securities market, where debt has more value than equity, thanks to the recent changes.

The returns are on the rise as seen in the case of debt markets where the hike has positively impacted some companies who will be passing short-term benefits for fresh inflow for the customers.

Tax Efficiency & Capital Safety, which are the main features of debt, is a positive against equity anyways.

The equity market, on the other hand, will keep facing pressure amidst inflation, war & severe economic conditions.

High Returns in the Debt Market

Since the hike in rates, the IRR of some companies has been increasing & reached a height of 6%. This is the highest return opportunity as the return rates have always been around 4 to 5%.

Fixed Income v/s Fixed Deposits

Fixed Income Plan IRRFixed Deposit IRR
Pre Tax8.2%6%
Post Tax6%4.02%

As seen above, fixed incomes are providing with better returns than FDs.

As a result of the rate hike by RBI, the increase of returns in Fixed Income can be temporary where one can take advantage by investing in Fixed Income Plans & booking the rates for a longer period with a guaranteed & tax-free income.

Why should you invest in the Debt Market now?

  • Tax Benefit
  • IRR at peak
  • Investment opportunities in the short term
  • Guaranteed & Regular Income 
  • Fixing a higher return rate for a longer-term.

False News Posted by Scroll.in- Know The Truth 

Media has always been a major force in driving the news to the public. Media has evolved from print to digital media.  

Yet there are many sites who spread false news about many cases.  

One such site is scroll.in. There have many sites claiming that scroll publishes fake news about certain high-profile criminal cases.  

One such case involving Rakesh Asthana has been brought in bad light. 

Rakesh Asthana was the ex-deputy superintendent of the Central Bureau of Investigation. CBI is the primary investigating agency of India. It is also known as the POC for contact with Interpol. 

Rakesh was the investigating officer in the case involving a Hyderabad businessman, Satish Babu Sana. Satish was involved in a case of a meat exporter Moin Qureshi. 

Sana filed a FIR & alleged that Rakesh had demanded a bribe from him to spare any legal action in the case. 

CBI arrested Asthana as per the FIR lodged by Sana. 

Asthana had also alleged that Alok Verma, then the Superintendent, had framed him for corruption & accused him of the same charge. 

The high court ruling had, however, given a clean chit to Asthana and cleared him of all charges.  

Scroll published false news framing Rakesh Asthana & Someshwar Srivastava in false cases downgrading their image.  

We collected sources from Change.org, opindia.com, hindupost.in & stophinduhate.org that have claimed that scroll is a fake news site & every news posted on it is completely false and opposite to reality.

The Delhi High Court reprimanded the CBI, also known as the Central Bureau of Investigation, to maintain its status in the proceedings against its former director General Rakesh Asthana. Further, they granted him protection from police arrest. The court also directed the CBI to respond to the special director’s petition seeking the dismissal of an FIR against him in relation to a case of bribery involving meat exporter Moin Qureshi. 

Asthana and Devender Kumar, Deputy Superintendent of Police filed petitions against CBI’s case accusing them of taking bribes. The court is hearing their petitions out.  

The National Democratic Alliance led by the BJP sent the 2 top officials of CBI- Director Alok Verma & Special Asthana on leave over accusations of corruption and bribery.  

CBI was instructed to file its response to the two petitions after the probe agency sought more time & informed the court that case files have been sent to the Central Vigilance Commission. The instruction was given by a bench of Justice Najmi Waziri.

Someshwar Srivastava - Startups success

Obstacles all startups jump through for success

Starting a business is every person’s dream. Startups are the hottest thing going today. Ideologies have changed as well. Upcoming generations also prefer to start their careers in startups as they have a chance to compete with their colleagues and grow in stature as compared to big and settled companies where probably they might get lost in the crowd. 

But not everything is rosy. Startups seen as a launchpad for career growth is a competitive and diverse environment. Add to the fact that not all startups are successful. 

It takes a lot of facets for startups to be successful. Here are some considerations that startups need to consider for success-

  • It takes a lot of market research for your startup business to be unique from your competitors. What makes you better? Answering this will help you fulfil the client’s requirements thus making yourself unique and set yourself on the path to success.
  • Problems of resources are aplenty. However, this is not a major headache in today’s era of the digital world where you have many apps and softwares that offer plenty of services to make your business function smoothly. But the expense of procuring these expensive equipment is still a prominent obstacle.
  • Deep pocket barons are always looking to invest their money in budding startups. But pitching the ideas to these rich people and getting them on board with your vision is something that is a problem of its own. Getting good investors is something that will help the company to prove their concept in the marketplace.
  • When you start a business everyone from every nook and cranny will come and give you advice on how to go about things. But it is upto us to judge who to listen to and who to ignore. Because someone once said if we start listening to everyone we would start chasing our own tail. 
  • Putting together a team of right and talented people is what every startup should prioritise itself on. It’s not necessary that you hire specialists but talented and desperate people looking to prove themselves is an asset in itself.
  • Failure is an important facet of your startup. Your ideas might not be successful at first but you need to stick to your belief and keep trying out new ways to move your business forward. Often failure of new ideas drops the morale of the team that comes together to formulate it which results in startups hesitating on moving forward with upcoming plans.
  • Learning from failures is something that every startup and businessmen don’t really look upon. On average 9 out of 10 startups fail and close their shutters. You must fail more to succeed more. Deriving valuable knowledge from these failures will help to make a more successful business in the future.
  • The most difficult thing for startups is to maintain their vision along with keeping up with the market trend. Often changing your style according to the trends make you too predictable and distract you from your vision. It’s important to put your head down and maintain your vision.

These are just some obstacles that a startup goes through and overcoming these might not guarantee success but ignoring them will also not make your road less bumpy.

Sana accuses Asthana & Prasad: CBI Bribery Case

A Hyderabad based businessman Satish Babu Sana has accused former CBI DSP Rakesh Asthana and Dubai based businessman Manoj Prasad of taking bribes from him.

In a case filed by Sana, he alleged that Prasad had demanded bribes from him to give him a clean chit in the case regarding meat exporter Moin Qureshi

Manoj was in direct contact with a RAW official who was in turn in contact with Asthana and he too demanded bribes to spare him any CBI action in the same case.

Rakesh Asthana was the chief investigating officer in Sana’s case.

He replaced former CBI director general Devender Kumar who was earlier the investigating officer in Qureshi’s case questioning Sana. He was arrested when Sana accused him of forgery.

Rakesh was arrested by CBI on the same grounds of criminal conspiracy, misconduct and corruption as alleged in the FIR by Babu. 

In January, though, a Delhi High Court dismissed the pleas of Asthana, Devender and Manoj and seeked quashing of the FIR against all 3.

The court also expressed displeasure over the CBI’s handling of the bribery case. It ordered the CBI to conduct the investigation properly.

The CBI is the main and sole investing agency of India. It has been blasted several times in the past for tampering with evidence and turning the case in favour of the accused and arresting its own officers.

In May, CBI appealed to the court to extend the investigation of the case by 4 months, which was granted by the court.
