Pathankot attack: Abducted SP to face polygraph test
New Delhi : The National Investigation Agency (NIA) will on Monday conduct a polygraph test on Salwinder Singh, the superintendent of police in Punjab's Gurdaspur district, an official said.
 
The test would be done in connection with his suspected role in helping the terrorists who attacked an Indian Air Force base in Punjab's Pathankot town. 
 
"Singh will face a series of questions in his polygraph test to be conducted today (Monday)," an NIA official, on condition of anonymity, told IANS.
 
The official said the NIA wanted to conduct the polygraph test to ascertain his statements made earlier during his questioning by the agency team over his abduction by the terrorists who attacked the Pathankot air base.
 
Sources said Singh, who has been brought to the NIA headquarters here, was on the agency's radar since the day it took over the Pathankot terror attack probe from Punjab Police. 
 
Singh claimed that he, along with his friend Rajesh Verma and cook Madan Gopal, was abducted by four or five heavily-armed terrorists near the state's Kolia village.
 
Six terrorists and seven security personnel were killed in the attack on the Pathankot air base, according to officials.

Reliance Group's Sasan power project gets nod for higher tariff
New Delhi : In a significant relief for Reliance Power's 3,960-MW Sasan project, the regulator has approved an annual hike of 9 paise or 7 percent in tariff over its entire 25-year contract period, that translates into an extra compensation of Rs.300 crore per annum.
 
The approval, based on what is called a change in law petition filed by the Reliance Group, has been awarded by the Central Electricity Regulatory Commission to Sasan Ultra Mega Power Project, set up in the Singrauli district of Madhya Pradesh.
 
"A one time compensation of Rs.271 Crore is also granted by regulatory commission till 31st July 2015," the company said in a statement, adding the regulator's directive also eases the way for future pass-through of compensation for the power project.
 
This, by way of a mechanism for the future payments toward changes in electricity duty rates and energy development cess that has also been approved by the regulatory commission in its 46-page order.
 
Reliance Power has a large largest portfolio of power projects in the private sector, based on coal, gas, hydro and renewable energy, with an operating capacity of 5,945 MW.
 
In April last year, the Anil Ambani-led Reliance Group had announced that it had fully attained commercial operations of the Rs.27,000-crore Sasan ultra mega power project, 12 months ahead of schedule, with all the six units generating 3,960 MW of electricity.
