Peter gade-The ultimate Sportsman

Peter gades words after he won the match after lee chong wei got injured and give walkover : “This is not how I wanted to win a match. I feel for Chong Wei and I hope he recovers in time for the Olympics.”

Detailed news
World No. 1 Lee Chong Wei suffered an ankle injury which puts his participation in the London Olympics in doubt.
The Malaysian (left), was leading long-time rival Peter Gade of Denmark 2-1 in the opening game when he suffered the injury. There didn’t look to be any danger when he tried to retrieve a shot at the back of the court, but he landed awkwardly.
He had to concede a walkover and wasn’t around to watch his teammates lose 3-2 in a Group C tie of the Citroen BWF Thomas and Uber Cups Finals as he was rushed to a nearby hospital.
Despite the loss, both Malaysia and Denmark have already qualified for the quarter-finals, but the Danes’ victory ensured them an easier tie in the last eighth.
Badminton Association of Malaysia’s (BAM) general manager Kenny Goh said: “It is still too early to say how bad the injury is. These things do happen in badminton and no one can predict how it will pan out.
“We are disappointed and we hope the injury will not be as bad as it looked.”
A visibly distraught Gade didn’t enjoy his victory, saying: “This is not how I wanted to win a match. I feel for Chong Wei and I hope he recovers in time for the Olympics.”

I Love u peter...God bless u..

On September 3, the CBI arrested Jan Morcha leader and former UP Transport Minister, Dr. Sanjay Singh on the charge of conspiring to murder Syed Modi. Dr. Sanjay Singh was arrested under Section 302 IPC.
The CBI took over the case from the police two days after the murder and started working on a love-triangle theory involving Syed Modi's wife; Ameeta Modi, a former Maharashtra badminton player and Dr. Sanjay Singh.
Ten days later, the CBI claimed to have laid its hand onsome clenching evidence and arrested five persons. They were Akhilesh Singh, Amar Bahadur Singh, Bhagwati Singhy, Jitendra Singh, and Balai Singh.
While Akhilesh is alleged to have hired the killers, AmarBahadur Singh, Bhagwati Singhy and Jitendra Singh were charged with driving the getaway vehicle.

Balai Singh was picked up from Rae Bareily on the charge of being the fourth occupant of the car.
The CBI raided the residences of Dr. Singh and Mrs. Ameeta Modi. A day after the raid on Ameeta's house, the CBI started circulating extracts from a personal diary allegedly seized from her. 

The alleged extracts detailed the meetings between Mrs Modi and Dr. Singh and pointed to a 'close relationship' between them.
Dr. Singh was named the main conspirator in the case.
Two days later, Ameeta was arrested on the charge of conspiring to murder her husband along with Dr. Singh. 

Mrs. Modi was however released on bail on August 26.

Later on September 21, the Lucknow district and sessionscourt ordered that Dr Sanjay Singh be released on bail on a personal bond of Rs 10,000.

Court dismisses CBI appeal in Syed 

Modi murder case

Hindu-Thursday, Dec 09, 2004

NEW DELHI, DEC. 8. The Supreme Court today upheld an Allahabad High Court order discharging Akilesh Singh, member of the Uttar Pradesh Assembly, accused in the murder of the then national badminton player, Syed Modi, in 1988.
A Bench of Justice K.G. Balakrishnan and Justice A.R. Lakshmanan dismissed an appeal preferred by the Central Bureau of Investigation against the judgment of the Lucknow Bench of the High Court in 1997. With the discharge of Akilesh Singh, who belonged to the Akhil Bhartiya Congress Dal party, three of the seven accused in the case were absolved of all charges.
The prosecution case was that Modi was shot dead by certain persons on July 27, 1988, outside the K. D. Singh Babu Stadium at Lucknow. The CBI cited the alleged relationship between Sanjay Singh and Amita as the main reason behind the conspiracy but the trial court in September 1990 held that there was no evidence to link Sanjay Singh and Amita to the crime and discharged them from the case.
The High Court and the apex court had upheld their discharge from the case.
Charges were framed against Akilesh Singh, Amar Bahadur, Bhagwati Singh, Jitendra Singh and Balai Singh. Later, Akilesh moved the High Court against the trial court order on the ground that once the two key accused were discharged from the case, there was no material to proceed with the case against him. The trial court and High Court discharged him and the CBI filed the appeal in the Supreme Court in 1997.. 

Life term for one in Syed Modi murder case

The Hindu

Sunday, Aug 23, 2009

Bhagwati Singh, prime accused in Syed Modi murder case, being taken to jail after he was sentenced to life imprisonment by a sessions court in Lucknow on Saturday.

LUCKNOW: The prime accused in the Syed Modi murder case, Bhagwati Singh, was on Saturday sentenced to life imprisonment by Additional Sessions Judge of Lucknow Shashank Shekhar, 21 years after the badminton player was shot dead at the rear gate of the K.D. Singh “Babu” stadium here.
The 27-year-old eight-time national badminton champion was killed on July 28, 1988 when he was riding home on his scooter from practice. The killers, who were waiting for him, sped towards Rae Bareli in a Maruti van after executing the crime.
Bhagwati Singh was held guilty on two counts under Section 302 (murder) and Section 27 (possession of illegal arms) of the Indian Penal Code and sentenced to life imprisonment.
The prime accused had been convicted by the Additional Sessions Judge on Friday and the quantum of punishment was pronounced on Saturday. The second accused, Jitendra Singh, was cleared of the charges for want of evidence.
The murder sent shock waves in sporting circles. The case soon assumed political overtones after the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) charge sheeted Jan Morcha leader Sanjay Singh and Modi’s wife Amita on grounds of conspiracy.
Mr. Sanjay Singh, who was a senior Minister in the Uttar Pradesh government headed by the then Chief Minister, Bir Bahadur Singh, left the Congress and joined the former Prime Minister V.P. Singh. The CBI probe was recommended by Mr. Bir Bahadur Singh in August 1988, even as the local police investigating the case claimed to have zeroed in on the killers. The investigating agency stepped in only in September 1988.
Apart from Mr. Sanjay Singh and Ms. Modi, the CBI charge sheet also named Akhilesh Kumar Singh, sitting MLA from Rae Bareli Sadar, Amar Bahadur Singh, Bhagwati Singh, Jitendra Singh and Balai Singh.
The CBI alleged that the contract to kill Modi was given to Akhilesh Singh by Mr. Sanjay Singh. The CBI cited an alleged affair between Mr. Sanjay Singh and Ms. Modi as the cause for giving the alleged killing contract.
While the CBI was accused of moving on a political trail, Mr. Sanjay Singh and Ms. Modi were discharged in 1990 by a trial court, a year after the CBI filed the charge sheet. Mr. Sanjay Singh and Ms. Modi later married.
Charges against Mr. Akhilesh Singh were also dropped. While Amar Bahadur Singh was murdered, Balai Singh died during the course of the trial. Jitendra Singh has been cleared of the charges.

Chong Wei back to winning ways

Lee Chong Wei cemented his position as the No. 1 shuttler in the world when he won the US$200,000 Yonex French Open on Sunday – his seventh title of the year and 39th of his career.
Lee Chong Wei (final france)Using precision smashes and great defence, Chong Wei (right), denied Japan’s Kenichi Tago the opportunity to win his first OSIM BWF World Superseries title with a devastating 21-16, 21-11 victory in 39 minutes.
It was his eighth victory over Tago from as many matches and the second time Chong Wei has defeated the Japanese ace in a Superseries final, the first coming in last year’s All England tournament in Birmingham.
It was also belated birthday present for the Malaysian, who turned 29 on Oct 21. His victory in Paris means he has now won an incredible 20 Superseries titles from 48 such tournaments since 2007.
Chong Wei won three Superseries titles in 2007, twice more in 2008, four times in 2009, six in 2010 and so far in 2011, he has won in Malaysia, England, India, Indonesia and France, with two more OSIM BWF World Superseries events next month in Hong Kong and China.
His other two titles in 2011 came at the BWF Super Series Finals 2010 which was played in January and the Malaysia Open Grand Prix Gold in May. He also won his National Grand Prix title for the 10th consecutive time last month.
On Sunday, Tago tried to match Chong Wei’s aggression but found it difficult to crack his opponent’s defence. He managed to stay in the game until 12-12, only for Chong Wei to up the pace and win nine of the next 13 points.
Tago was the aggressor once again in the second game and took a 5-3 lead when once again, the world No. 1 found several extra gears in his arsenal to zoom ahead, winning 14 of the next 15 points, including nine straight unanswered winners to take a 17-6 lead.
Chong Wei then eased off the gas, allowing Tago to win another five points before he wrapped up the match.
