Guwahati: In a coordinated effort between the Centre, Punjab, and Assam governments, four top aides of Khalistani separatist leader Amritpal Singh have been arrested and flown to Dibrugarh in upper Assam, according to top police sources. Singh, who is still on the run, is being pursued by authorities, and the arrested aides will likely be kept in the high-security Dibrugarh Central Jail.

Accompanied by a 30-member team from Punjab Police, including its Inspector General, Prisons, the associates were flown from Amritsar in an Indian Air Force AN32 aircraft and reached Dibrugarh through Jorhat, another major base of the air force. The Dibrugarh District Collector and the local Superintendent of Police received the team at Mohanbari Airport with high security.

Punjab Police have arrested 78 members of Singh’s outfit, “Waris Punjab De,” with several others detained for questioning, according to officials. Additionally, Singh’s father has been detained for questioning, and there’s a massive deployment of police and paramilitary forces outside his village, Jallupur Khaira, in Amritsar.

Singh’s close aide, Daljeet Singh Kalsi, who handles his finances, was also arrested from Haryana’s Gurgaon. Sources say that Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann discussed the plan to arrest Amritpal Singh with Home Minister Amit Shah in a meeting on March 2.

To prevent Singh’s supporters from gathering in the village where the police have trapped him, internet and SMS services were snapped across Punjab on Saturday. The ban has been further extended by a day until 12 pm on Monday. Dibrugarh central jail is one of the oldest prisons in northeast India and was used to hold top militants during the peak of ULFA militancy in Assam.

The Indian government’s recent decision to extend the deadline for linking Permanent Account Number (PAN) with Aadhaar card is a significant move that impacts taxpayers across the country. The new deadline for linking PAN with Aadhaar has been extended to June 30, 2023, as announced by the Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT). Here are some key points to consider in this regard:

Importance of linking PAN with Aadhaar: Linking PAN with Aadhaar is a crucial step towards curbing tax evasion and ensuring transparency in financial transactions. It helps to establish the identity of the taxpayer and ensure that their tax records are accurate and up-to-date.

Deadline extension: The recent decision by the government to extend the deadline for linking PAN with Aadhaar is a relief for taxpayers who were struggling to meet the previous deadline. This extension provides more time for taxpayers to complete the linking process without any undue pressure.

Consequences of non-compliance: Failure to link PAN with Aadhaar can lead to the inactivation of the PAN card. This means that the taxpayer will not be able to use the PAN for filing tax returns, opening bank accounts, or conducting any financial transactions that require PAN authentication.

Notification: The CBDT has announced that a notification will be issued separately to provide more information about the new deadline and the linking process. Taxpayers are advised to stay updated with the latest announcements and comply with the linking requirement to avoid any penalties or legal consequences.

Simplified process: The government has made the process of linking PAN with Aadhaar much simpler in recent years, with the introduction of an online facility for the same. Taxpayers can link their PAN with Aadhaar through the Income Tax Department’s e-filing portal or through the UIDAI website. The process is straightforward and can be completed in a few easy steps.

In conclusion, the extension of the deadline for linking PAN with Aadhaar is a welcome move that provides relief to taxpayers across the country. Taxpayers are advised to take advantage of this extended deadline and complete the linking process as soon as possible to avoid any inconvenience or legal consequences.

Hassan: When Bajrang Dal and Vishva Hindu Parishad workers were protesting against Quran recitation in Belur of Hassan district, there was a scuffle between the two communities and the police resorted to baton charge to control the situation.

Bajrang Dal and Vishwa Vidhu Parishad workers staged a protest in the city demanding the cancellation of Quran recitation during Belur Channakesava Rathotsava. They protested by blocking the road. At this time, a young man from the Muslim community who came on a bike shouted the slogan of Quran Zindabad.

Infuriated by this, the Bajrang Dal activists took the young man to task. An argument took place between the protestors and the youth. Bajrang Dal activists chased the youth. The police resorted to lathi charge to control the situation. Also, the youth has been taken into custody and is being interrogated. However, there is a tense atmosphere in the place.

Hindu activists staged a protest and submitted a petition to the Tehsildar demanding that Quran should not be recited in the Hindu religious fair. The authorities have demanded that an order be issued by April 3 in this regard.

Last year, amid opposition from Hindu activists, recitation of the Quran was held at the Channakeshava fair. However, Hindu activists claim that recitation of the Quran before Hindu gods was forcibly added in 1932.
