Special Judge Bharat Parashar ordered that charges dealing with criminal conspiracy, cheating and various provisions of the Prevention of Corruption Act against former parliamentarian, industrialist and senior congress leader Naveen Jindal, former union minister of state for coal Dasari Narayan Rao and former Jharkhand chief minister Madhu Koda and others.
 
The court was hearing a case related to the allocation of Jharkhand's Amarkonda Murgadangal coal block to Jindal Steel and Gagan Sponge.
 
The probe agency said there was sufficient evidence to frame charges against the accused in a case related to the allocation of Amarkonda Murgadangal coal block to Jindal Steel and Gagan Sponge.

The Central Bureau of Investigation in April last year filed a chargesheet against Jindal, Koda, Rao, former coal secretary H.C. Gupta with six other individuals.
 
The six others include New Delhi Exim director Suresh Singhal, Jindal Realty director Rajeev Jain, Gagan Sponge directors Girish Kumar Juneja and R.K. Saraf, Sowbhagya Media's managing director K. Ramakrishna and chartered accountant Gyan Swaroop Garg.
 
Five private companies -- four based in Delhi and one in Hyderabad -- have also been named in the chargesheet.
 
The companies are Jindal Steel and Power Ltd., Gagan Sponge Iron Pvt. Ltd., Jindal Reality Pvt. Ltd., New Delhi Exim Pvt. Ltd. and Sowbhagya Media Ltd.

Drink peppermint tea to boost your memory
London : Are you finding it difficult to remember things? If yes, drink peppermint tea, as according to a new study, it can improve long-term and working memory in healthy adults.
 
For the research, the team randomly allocated a total of 180 participants to take a drink of peppermint tea, chamomile tea or hot water. 
 
The results showed that participants who took peppermint tea showed significant improvement in long term memory, working memory and alertness compared to both who took chamomile and hot water.
 
Participants who took chamomile tea exhibited slowed memory and attention speed compared to both who took peppermint and hot water.
 
"It's interesting to see the contrasting effects on mood and cognition of the two different herbal teas. The enhancing and arousing effects of peppermint and the calming/sedative effects of chamomile observed in this study are in keeping with the claimed properties of these herbs and suggest beneficial effects can be drawn from their use," said Mark Moss, researcher at Northumbria University in Britain.
 
The findings were presented recently at the British Psychological Society's Annual Conference in Nottingham.
 
Before the participants consumed their drink they completed questionnaires relating to their mood. 
 
After a twenty minute rest the participants completed tests that assessed their memory and a range of other cognitive functions.

Submit proposal to curb delay in economic crime probes: HC to police
New Delhi : The Delhi High Court on Thursday, taking note of the huge pendency of cases relating to economic offence wing (EOW) of Delhi Police, directed Special Commissioner of Police Amulya Patnaik to submit a proposal to curb delays in completion of investigation in the cases.
 
Justice P.S. Teji slammed police for not implementing, on ground level, the police commissioner's January 20 standing order that all the investigating officers (IO) complete the investigation in financial crimes within a period of one year.
 
The primary responsibility of EOW is to probe sensitive and complex cases related to economic offences.
 
The court asked Patnaik to come up with guidelines to streamline the investigation process by May 10, while assuring the court was prepared to lend him all form of support in ensuring that the guidelines are followed.
 
"Tell me if you have any difficulty in doing this. I will take it up with the government. You only have to streamline it. Let it be done in letter and spirit of the standing order," said the court.
 
As per the standing order, if investigation could not be completed within a year, then the IO has to seek the permission of the deputy commissioner of police.
 
The court said: "The IO does not understand what was to be done.. SHO concerned was to comply with the guidelines, but there is one excuse after another... The DCP should brief all the SHO at least once in a week."
