PSPB wins its 17th team championship at badminton tournament at Nagpur

Team Petroleum Sports Promotional Board (PSPB) won its 17th team championship during the 73rd Inter State Inter Zonal Championship at Divisional Sports Complex at Mankapur in Nagpur. The mixed double pair of PSPB Pranaav Reddy and N Sikki Reddy had the hold of the game since the start. With B Sai Praneeth and G Rutvika Shivani winning the mens single and womens singles respectively, the PSPB emerged as the winners with a match score of 3 ? 0.

Union Minister Nitin Gadkari along with Maharashtra Badminton Association (MBA) President Arun Lakhani handed over the trophy to the winners. The 73rd Inter-state Inter-zonal Badminton Championship concluded amid much fanfare at the Divisional Sports Complex in Nagpur on Friday. The winners were presented with a cheque of rupees three lacs while the runners up were awarded a cheque of rupees two lacs.

The finals was a cut throat competition that put on display all of the skill and talent of the top state-level players, which made for a thrilling precursor to the 82nd Senior National Badminton Championship, which began today (4th November, 2017). Gadkari and Lakhani officially declared the Senior Nationals open in a dazzling ceremony, which saw the pair illuminate a breathtaking display of lights arranged in the shape of a badminton shuttle. International veterans from Nagpur, CD Deoras and Pradeep Gandhe were also felicitated for their immense contribution in the field of badminton in the state of Maharashtra.

Arun Lakhani said, I would like to congratulate all the champions of the 73rd Inter-state Inter-zonal Badminton Championship. The competition this year was extremely close. Most of the matches turned out to be riveting contests that went down to the wire and, as such, we couldn’t have asked for a better spectacle to whet the appetite of the fans assembled here ahead of the 82nd Senior Nationals.

He further added, We want to make the Nationals a premium event that the Indian players look forward to.  This is our step towards making this sport inspirational. Nearly 22,000 school children will be witnessing the action live here. Our motive behind this is to give the children exposure to badminton at early stage and to encourage them to come out and play. I would also appeal the Government that with the help of associations, the already existing stadiums should be made available for the players and the infrastructure should be utilised for the betterment of sports and sportspersons.

Nitin Gadkari said, I am happy to see players across India present in Nagpur. Nagpur being my hometown, I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you all. Arun Lakhani is committed to this sport and this can be seen by the kind of arrangements MBA has made for all the players. Our Mayor too has provided all the support to the players who have travelled. The opportunity that the players get in the events like these is important. The team that does not succeed should take it as learning and should never stop playing. I would appeal to all the players to focus and nurture their talent. Congratulations to the winners and best wishes to everyone.

The Senior Nationals starting from tomorrow (November 5, 2017) are expected to see a greater turnout with India’s most legendary shuttlers set to match wits.

Special Court grants bail to ex-Home Minister Anil Deshmukh’s son Hrishikesh Deshmukh in money laundering case

Special Court granted bail to former Home Minister of Maharashtra Anil Deshmukh's son Hrishikesh Deshmukh on Monday. 

Anil Deshmukh

In a major development, Special Court granted bail to former Home Minister of Maharashtra Anil Deshmukh’s son Hrishikesh Deshmukh on Monday in an alleged money laundering case. Hrishikesh, who was arraigned as an accused in the chargesheet, was granted bail after a special court designated to hear cases related to the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) recorded his appearance.

He had filed an application through his advocate Aniket Nikam after appearing before the court and requesting the same to accept his appearance and grant him bail.

Hrishikesh also pointed out that the accusations in the ED’s case were confined to the alleged acts of omission and commission by his father in his capacity as the former home minister from January 2020 to April 2021. The plea also cited that the former home minister had already been granted bail in the case by the Bombay High Court. 

The court had in February this year issued summons to Hrishikesh after ED submitted its complaint (chargesheet) in the case.

Bombay High Court granted bail to NCP leader Anil Deshmukh in October this year in the same case. While Deshmukh had secured the bail in the ED case, he remains in custody in connection with the CBI case registered against him in April last year.
