reason fighters go up in weight is because they do not work as hard as they did when they were younger Ward is partially right in Dineshs case After missing out on the Olympicshe had taken a break from boxing to complete his police inspectors training and recover from injuries But to be fair to Dineshhis choice of category may also have something to do with medal winning considerations for the team as well If two talented boxers are fighting in the same categoryit makes sense to split them up into two categories rather than only send one of them for a competition The choice to move up weight categories makes sense at least at the Asian level where the level of competition in higher weight category is far less intense than at lighter weights At the world stage however with better number of competitors at the heavier weightsit will be an uphill challenge While you usually tend to retain your speedyou dont carry the same punching power You also dont have an increased ability to take punishment which will naturally come from heavier boxers Jonathan is asenior correspondent based in Delhi [email protected] For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More

allegedly purchasing the land despite the former sub-registrar of the area pointing out that it was government land the Telangana Rashtra Samiti leader has decided to make an exit from what he now describes as a "muddy deal"’ However Rao wants the private realty firm that sold the land to him to return the money to him with interest Rao’s offer has come even as chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao denied that his government has lost even one paisa to land sharks If that was indeed the case why did KCR transfer 70 sub-registrars and even hand over the case to the CID Isn’t the chief minister’s statement that not one inch of government land was lost pre-judging the case even before the investigation has begun File image of K Chandrasekhar Rao AFP The claim itself is disputable given the kind of money that is being unearthed during raids on sub-registrars in the state The Anti-Corruption Bureau found Prabhakar Reddy a document writer of having "purchased" a whopping 161 properties in the last few years He has even disposed off 120 of those properties The total value of the assets was reportedly worth Rs 14 crore But Reddy was merely the benami owner the real owner allegedly is Kukatpally sub-registrar Srinivas Rao who would route all financial transactions through Reddy The raids have proven that the sub-registrar offices in Telangana are a den of a well-oiled network of corruption Raids at Balanagar sub-registrar Mohammad Yousuf’s residence unearthed disproportionate assets worth Rs 8 crore including properties allegedly bought in benami names Both sub-registrars have been suspended To show that he means business KCR also ordered raids on 141 registration offices across Telangana The ACB has formed a special cell to probe land registration frauds committed so far But while that will mean cleaning up the rot at the business end of the operations the feeling is that those with political connections are getting away scot-free Why would huge bribes be paid to sub-registrars and their men in the registration offices unless they were helping private parties make a killing while obviously denting the state exchequer For KCR to claim that the government didn’t lose any money therefore is laughable And it isn’t just Kesava Rao whose family had bought the land Another TRS MP D Srinivas also is in the dock for reportedly getting land that had been allotted to Dalits Srinivas in his defence says "This land passed several hands before I bought it So how did the registration department allow all those transactions" The lid was blown off the scam only after an internal audit of the registration department — in March — revealed sale of 693 acres of land in Miyapur a locality on the outskirts of Hyderabad A back of the envelope calculation revealed that the land parcel was worth Rs 587 crore But the feeling gaining ground is that only the sub-registrars are facing the flak PS Prasad of the Goldstone group one of the main accused in the case is absconding and is known to be politically connected His two colleagues are in judicial custody but they plead that the lands are held by private parties and do not belong to the government Different companies with links to the Goldstone group according to police officials are essentially suitcase companies The modus operandi was to target lands that were once owned by members of the extended Hyderabad Nizam family or the nobles who held positions of power before 1948 when Hyderabad became part of the Indian Union Under the Jagir Abolition Act all unoccupied land was taken over by the Hyderabad state in the early 50s But in many cases the kith and kin of the nobles filed cases contesting the nominal compensation paid in many cases or no money being paid in some instances The scamsters would create the impression that there are multiple claimants for the same land They would allegedly manufacture fabricated documents of the lands and register it in the name of two different sets of benamis claiming to be descendants of the nobles The two groups would then go to court staking claim on the land The case would drag on for months after which one of the benami parties would withdraw leaving the other group in possession With the sub-registrar taking his cut to sign on the dotted line the "government" never realised that the land was being taken out under its nose Ironically even while the chief minister says that the scam is a figment of the imagination of the media and the opposition parties the public prosecutor — while arguing against granting bail to the two accused from the Goldstone group — said they had cheated several gullible people with forged documents and that only a detailed probe would unearth the clandestine transactions in this scam The Opposition believes many members of the ruling TRS have their hands in the till and therefore want a court-monitored CBI investigation into the case which they allege is a Rs 15000 crore land scam "A member of PS Prasad’s family is still working as a secretary in the chief minister’s office The chief minister has to answer how this is being allowed" says Revanth Reddy

filed a lawsuit against his former manager Jill Littman claiming she is seeking commissions she is not owed In 2006 a contract was drawn up between Littman Coster-Waldau and Impression Entertainment in which the actor would pay his former manager 10 per cent of his earnings for employment obtained while she represented him according to The Hollywood Reporter The actor said Littman and Impression Entertainment asked him to sign a written agreement early in their relationship but he opted for an oral contract Now the parties are fighting over the issue whether the contract specified that pay was meant to continue after their relationship ended as shortly after Coster-Waldau fired Littman he stopped paying her commission Littman cited written deals from 2011 and 2014 claiming her commission was to be paid even if they stopped working together However Coster-Waldau said Littman was citing “sham documents” which he signed believing their sole purpose was supporting Impression’s sponsorship of his O-1 visa applications “Coster-Waldau is entitled to a declaration that the Sham Documents are not and have never been binding contracts as well as compensatory and punitive damages for Defendants’disloyal and fraudulent conduct” the actor’s attorney Michael Plonsker wrote In opposition Impression attorney Howard King said Coster-Waldau’s e-mail firing his managers also “acknowledged his obligation to pay commissions to Impression on his earnings from Game of Thrones ’till it ends’ and that Littman’s work for him was ‘absolutely stellar’” Nikolaj Walter-Ladau plays
