CPI(M) as agency removes FIR from website

New Delhi, Oct 12 (PTI) Reacting to the CBI removing the Hathras rape case FIR from its website hours after putting it up, CPI(M) general secretary Sitaram Yechury on Monday said slammed Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, saying his eagerness to transfer the case to the investigating agency was “obvious”.

The Left parties have been demanding a court monitored probe in the matter and had opposed the transfer of the case to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).

“UP CM ‘s eagerness asking CBI to investigate the horrendous Hathras crime is now obvious. It is imperative for the Courts to monitor this investigation, deliver justice & punish the culprits. CBI must not be used, once again, to absolve a crime, denying justice,” said Yechury in a tweet tagging a news report regarding the removal of the FIR from the CBI website.

The CBI removed the FIR from its website sensing possible violation of a Supreme Court order that FIRs in cases of rape and sexual assault, including those against minors, should not be put in public domain by police,sources indicated The agency, however, did not retract or remove its media statement from the website.

In December, 2018, a Supreme Court bench headed by Justice Madan B Lokur directed the print and electronic media to not reveal the identity of victims of rape and sexual assault ‘even in a remote manner’.

The CBI took over the investigation from Uttar Pradesh police into the alleged gang-rape and murder of a Dalit woman in a village in Hathras district on September 14.

The agency had registered an FIR under IPC sections related to gang-rape and murder among others, and Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act, officials said.

It assigned the case to its Ghaziabad unit with a special team

SpaceX, L3Harris win Space Development Agency contracts to build missile-warning satellites

SDA Director Derek Tournear said SpaceX “came in with an extremely credible proposal” that leverages the Starlink assembly line

WASHINGTON — The Space Development Agency awarded SpaceX a $149 million contract and L3Harris a $193.5 million contract to each build four satellites to detect and track ballistic and hypersonic missiles.

The contracts announced Oct. 5 are for the first eight satellites of a potentially much larger Space Development Agency constellation of sensor satellites known as Tracking Layer Tranche 0. This is SpaceX’s first military contract to produce satellites. 

Both companies have to each deliver four satellites by September 2022, Space Development Agency Director Derek Tournear told SpaceNews.

Each satellite will have a “wide field of view” overhead persistent infrared (OPIR) sensor capable of detecting and tracking advanced missile threats from low Earth orbit. Each satellite also will have an optical crosslink so it can pass data to relay satellites. 

Tournear said the winners were selected based on technical merit and ability to deliver satellites quickly.

SpaceX proposed a new satellite design that is based on the Starlink bus that SpaceX designed for its internet megaconstellation. Tournear said SpaceX is acquiring the OPIR sensor from another supplier but could not disclose the name. SpaceX has not yet revealed its subcontractors for this program.

L3Harris bid a complete satellite with the bus and payload produced in-house. 

The optical crosslinks in the Tracking Layer must be compatible with the optical links used in the Transport Layer satellites that Lockheed Martin and York Space Systems are building for the Space Development Agency.

The Transport Layer is the backbone that moves data collected by the sensors to anywhere in the world where the U.S. military needs it. 

Tournear said SpaceX “came in with an extremely credible proposal” that leverages its Starlink assembly line.
