Jagannath is the son of Goddess Sri Jagadgauri Devi and Lord Vishnu himself. In pre-Vedic times there is no record of a king named Jagannath. In ancient times his name was Purushottama which was a half form of Lord Vishnu.. The word "Jagannath" in Sanskrit means god of Gods or one's well-being. It is the name of the lord of animals as well as Lord Vishnu's son.The Punjab and Haryana High Court on Friday issued contempt proceedings against the Department of Home Affairs (DHA) for not complying with the court’s orders in the case of missing Punjab teen Honeypreet.
The HC had passed a direction to the Home Ministry to provide the mobile phone records of all the friends and relatives of the missing teen and other relevant documents in the case.
The court had also issued a contempt notice to the Union Home Ministry and the State governments for their failure to provide the requested documents.
DHA was directed to file its compliance report by July 16.
The court, in the contempt proceedings, said “it is not for the court to decide if the high commissioner or some other officer of the ministry was untrustworthy.”
The court also directed the states to file a compliance report and the Central government to file a compliance report.
In its earlier judgment on September 11, 2018, the court had stated: “It appears that the Union Home Ministry and the State governments have not fulfilled their statutory obligations in the matter.”
The court had issued an interim direction on September 11, 2018, to the Union government to provide information about the mobile phone numbers of the friends and family members of the missing teen.
Honeypreet was reported missing on August 23, 2018. Her father, Navjot Singh Sidhu, has accused the DHA of acting in cahoots with the accused.
In a video posted on his Twitter handle, Sidhu had claimed that the DHA and the State government were lying and misleading in the case and claimed that it was “in the bigger conspiracy”.
Navjot Singh Sidhu, the former cricketer turned politician, made the claim in the video that the Centre was lying in the matter.
