Three Dalit youths were publicly stripped and thrashed by a mob after they were allegedly caught during a robbery bid in a village in Jaunpur district of Uttar Pradesh, the police said on Sunday.A video of the incident was widely shared on social media, leading to much outrage. Jaunpur Superintendent of Police Vipin Mishra said that on the intervening night of July 5 and 6, the three youths were trying to break the lock of the customer care centre of the Union Bank branch, under the Sarai Khwaja police station. When the watchman woke up and raised an alarm, the three youths tried to flee but one of them was caught by the villagers, Mr. Mishra said. The youth held captive by the villagers led them to his two partners the next day, said the officer. The three were later handed over to the police.The police are probing both cases — the theft attempt and the beating by the mob, Mr. Mishra said, adding that those involved in the thrashing of the youth were being identified.The footage of the incident shows the three youths, stripped to their undergarment, being pushed around, kicked and beaten with slippers, belts and sticks. They were also verbally abused. While the names and background of the three youths were not known, a spokesperson for SP Jaunpur said they belonged to the Dalit community.Describing the incident as serious, Brij Lal, chairperson of the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes Commission, U.P., said he would ensure that those involved in the thrashing of the Dalits would get the strictest punishment. Talking to a news channel, Mr. Lal said law should take its own course.

Liverpool boss Klopp: All the way from Norway to ask me that?by Paul Vegas6 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveLiverpool boss Jurgen Klopp insists Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer doesn’t need his advice.Klopp was asked by a reporter from Dagbladet if he had words for Solskjaer as United continue to struggle.The German replied: “Hahahaha!

He has experience as a manager in football. He knows what he needs to do. It just has to work.

“I must extend my heartiest congratulations to all of you graduates who have endured the rigours of this important programme. You have been well trained and prepared for the task that is ahead of us. You have now empowered yourselves to take on leadership roles,” he said. Education, Youth and Information Minister, Senator the Hon. Ruel Reid, is lauding the National College for Educational Leadership (NCEL) for outstanding work in preparing educators to be effective leaders, through its Aspiring Principals Programme.At a graduation ceremony on June 28, some 96 participants successfully matriculated from the programme. The ceremony was held at the Mona Visitors’ Lodge, University of the West Indies (UWI), Mona Campus in Kingston.Senator Reid also commended the participants for taking this step in their careers.“I must extend my heartiest congratulations to all of you graduates who have endured the rigours of this important programme. You have been well trained and prepared for the task that is ahead of us. You have now empowered yourselves to take on leadership roles,” he said.He charged the participants to go forward with the newly acquired knowledge and skills, and to be transformational leaders.“Wherever you serve and wherever you go, you are the finest principals in Jamaica and the world,” the Minister said.For his part, Permanent Secretary in the Ministry, Dean-Roy Bernard, also commended the graduates.“With the changing dynamics, new paradigms and demands on the education system, teachers, and especially those that aspire to leadership, are better served when they commit themselves to a process of professional development and lifelong learning,” he said.“Experience has shown also that while many of our teachers are prepared for classroom instruction delivery, and in some cases to take on additional administrative duties, the overall responsibilities of management often prove to be demanding. I am confident that in this professional development programme, you have acquired an appreciation of the task of school leadership and management, along with the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead,” the Permanent Secretary said.For her part, Director/Principal of NCEL, Dr. Taneisha Ingleton, said the programme intersects practice and theories with the practical elements. These include personalised action plans, peer learning groups, reflective logs, teaching and creation of educational blogs. Participants also received training in public speaking, academic writing etiquette and decorum.“This exposure helps participants to challenge assumptions, build their understanding and ability to discover for themselves, make connections and create solutions.They, therefore, have these skills to build the same in their colleagues and students,” Dr. Ingleton explained.Established under the Education System Transformation Programme (ESTP), the NCEL seeks to develop excellence in leadership as a common denominator in schools and support institutions.The nine-month modular Aspiring Principals Programme aims to identify and prepare future school leaders. It is delivered through the UWI at both its Mona andWestern Jamaica campuses on a part time basis by way of face-to-face instruction, distance learning, coaching and mentorship.The programme provides a standard credential, the Professional Qualification for Principalship (PQP) to which the Ministry of Education and school Boards will refer before authorising the hiring of principals of public schools.The programme is designed to enhance key leadership competencies, such as financial acuity, community leadership, organisational leadership, transformational leadership, instructional leadership, strategic thinking, leading change, communication, collegial engagement, teamwork and fellowship, ethics and integrity, self awareness and technological skills.
