  1. Former AC Milan and Real Madrid striker Robinho was sentenced to nine years in prison in Italy on Thursday after he was convicted of gang rape, according to local media reports. The alleged incident occurred in January 2013, when Robinho was playing for Milan in Serie A. He was found guilty in absentia by an Italian court for sexually assaulting a 22-year-old Albanian woman. Five other people were also accused of the same crime, but their sentences are not yet known. According to Milan daily Corriere della Sera, Robinho and five friends made the young woman drink "to the point of making her unconscious and unable to resist". They were then said to have engaged in "sexual intercourse multiple times in a row" with her. Robinho has denied the charges and can appeal the decision. The 33-year-old is currently playing for Atletico Mineiro in Brazil. He has 100 international caps for his country.
  2. LAHORE: Chief Minister Punjab Shehbaz Sharif ordered termination of four policemen for torturing an elderly couple in Multan. Sharif also met the couple, Muhammad Idrees and Naseem Bibi, and their daughter Madiha on Thursday. CM expressed his displeasure over the incident and spoke to them in detail over the matter. ?You are my elders and I will never let anything wrong happen to you,? A fair decision will be taken over the matter, he assured them and ordered termination of Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) and Station House Officer (SHO), sub-inspector and assistant superintendent of police (ASP) in the incident. ?People who have no humanity have not right to serve the government,? he remarked. ?Those who have done such a thing with the poor should be ashamed of themselves.? Those responsible for the incident will be taken to task. ?We will not accept the behaviour of the police towards the elderly couple,? he stressed. ?Is justice only for the rich? Just because the poor can?t raise their voice,? Shehbaz remarked. Elderly couple tortured by Multan police seek justice The couple said that MDA bought their land but never paid them the full amount The CM also ordered an inquiry into the matter and asked the investigative committee to submit a report as soon as possible. On Wednesday, the elderly couple had staged a protest hoping for justice. Muhammad Idrees and Naseem Bibi, were thrashed by the police outside the office of Multan Development Authority for demanding compensation for the 500 acre land the authority bought from them on Monday (November 20). The couple said that MDA bought their land but never paid them the full amount. Dissatisfied by the progress in the case, Idrees shared that even though the Chief Minister took notice of the incident nothing has been done as yet. ?A team was supposed to investigate the case but there has been no decision. We were told that we should accept whatever amount we are given as we won?t get a higher amount,? he said. On Tuesday, the Chief Minister of Punjab Shehbaz Sharif took notice of an incident of abuse at the hands of police and suspended the officials allegedly involved in the incident, a spokesperson for the office of the government of Punjab said.

  3. Three Muslims clerics were allegedly attacked with sharp objects by unknown men for covering their heads in Uttar Pradesh's Baghpat district on Thursday, reported Indian media. The three men, identified as Gulzar, Israr and Abrar, were getting off a train when they were attacked by six to seven men, reported ANI. The attack occurred after the men quarreled over Muslim men covering heads. There were also reports that the clerics were pushed off the throw, but the police did not confirm it. As a result, the three men were shifted to a nearby hospital for medical treatment. The three clerics started wearing their shoes to get off at village Aheda in Baghpat when men attacked them with iron rods and an ice pick. ?The police have registered an FIR against the unidentified attackers,? Northern Railway?s public relations officer Nitin Chaudhary told ANI. In May, two Muslim men were killed after they were attacked by Indian villagers who suspected them of stealing cows, police said Monday, the latest such attack over the animal Hindus consider sacred. Police in the northeastern state of Assam said they had registered a murder case over the deaths of Abu Hanifa and Riyazuddin Ali, who were beaten with sticks on Sunday. Two suspects have been detained for questioning. Mob in India kills two Muslims over suspected cow theft Two Muslim men have died after they were attacked by Indian villagers "They were chased and beaten with sticks by villagers who said the two boys were trying to steal cows from their grazing field," Debaraj Upadhyay, Nagaon´s top cop, told AFP by telephone. "By the time we took them to the hospital at night they had succumbed to their injuries," he added. The incident comes amidst a wave of rising tensions over the killing and smuggling of cows in Hindu-majority India, where the animal is considered sacred and its slaughter is a punishable offence in many states.
  4. [embed_video1 url= style=center] ISLAMABAD: As the protest at Faizabad Interchange enters the third week, the government has been spending approximately Rs10 million daily on the deployment of security personnel, sources informed Geo News on Thursday. The recurring protests and sit-ins in the federal capital have indebted the Islamabad Police so much so that it has become difficult to feed the personnel deployed for security around Faizabad Interchange. The administration appears unable to maintain security presence around the vicinity after the contractors, who up till now had been supplying food on credit, have declined to facilitate any more requests sans payment, sources added. Routine life in the 'twin cities' remains greatly disrupted as protesters, belonging to a religious group, continue blockade of the Interchange, despite a notice by the Supreme Court. The protest has resulted in severe problems for residents, who face traffic jams and mobility issues on a daily basis. At least two casualties due to ambulances being unable to cross the protesters have also been reported. Islamabad administration decides to close streetlights on Faizabad interchange Administration also discussed the hardships being faced by the citizens of the twin cities Authorities have acquired services of 3000 personnel from the Frontier Constabulary (FC), 4000 from Punjab Police and 1000 Azad Kashmir Police for deployment around Faizabad sit-in, they said. The expense for providing food to these personnel is over Rs2.5 million daily, sources said. The expense for 200 rented containers and vehicles, and fueling remains apart. On the other hand, the Ministry of Finance has also not released an additional grant for the past sit-ins, documents available with Geo News suggest. There had been continuous expenditures on different protests and sit-ins from September 7 to November 22. The security for Jamaat-e-Islami's protest on September 8 cost Rs12.6 million, documents suggest. Similarly, the sit-in by Sunni Tehreek, which began on September 24 and lasted for eight days, coost Rs23.5 million.
  5. PARIS: The world's only particle accelerator dedicated to art was switched on at the Louvre in Paris Thursday to help experts analyse ancient and precious works. The 37-metre (88-foot) AGLAE accelerator housed underneath the huge Paris museum will be now be used for the first time to routinely study and help authenticate paintings and other items made from organic materials. The Centre for Research and Restoration of the Museum of France (C2RMF) -- which is independent of the Louvre -- has spent 2.1 million euros ($2.5 million) overhauling and upgrading the machine, which can determine the chemical make-up of objects without the need to take samples. "Up to now we almost never analysed paintings because we were afraid the particle beam might change the colours" when it hit the pigments in the paint, director Isabelle Pallot-Frossard told AFP. The AGLAE works by speeding up helium and hydrogen nuclei to speeds of between 20,000 to 30,000 kilometres (12,400 to 18,600 miles) per second and then bombarding the object, which emits radiation that can be captured and analysed. Among the first objects to be tested by the newly configured accelerator were Roman votive statues of the household gods -- the Lares -- which were said to protect the home. They were uncovered from the ancient forum of Bavay close to the border with Belgium. The old accelerator -- which was built in 1988 -- could only work between eight and 10 hours a day, but the new one can function around the clock, the C2RMF said.
  6. Mumbai police called out Bollywood ?youth icon? Varun Dhawan for flouting traffic rules by posing for a selfie with a fan while stuck in traffic. The police shared a picture on social media in which Varun can be seen leaning out of his car to click a selfie with a fan, who was sitting in a rickshaw parked next to his car. The Judwaa 2 actor does not seem to be wearing seat belt in the picture. In a tweet, Mumbai police shared: ?We expected better from a responsible Mumbaikar and youth icon like you,' wrote Mumbai Police, also adding that the actor should expect an 'e-challan' or a fine soon.? Reacting to this, Varun issued an apology. He wrote: ?My apologies. Our cars weren?t moving since we were at a traffic signal and I didn?t want to hurt the sentiment of a fan but next time I?ll keep safety in mind and won?t encourage this.? The Mumbai police then posted: "Quite a galactic coincidence for the photographer to be on the same signal to capture your gesture, in a good intent nevertheless risky. Leaning out even in a stationary vehicle can be distracting for others considering your popularity. Glad you took our message in d right spirit"
  7. JERUSALEM: Palestine's football team achieved its highest ranking in history Thursday, rising above Israel in the FIFA world rankings for the first time. The head of the Palestinian football association labelled it a "historic achievement" as the team rose two spots to 82nd in FIFA's new rankings, published Thursday. Israel fell 16 places to 96th after a disappointing failed World Cup qualification campaign. Palestine has recently won a series of games as they seek to qualify for the 2019 Asian Cup, including a 10-0 victory over Bhutan. The announcement comes as the Palestinian football association has campaigned to encourage FIFA to take action against six Israeli clubs located in settlements in the occupied West Bank. Settlements are considered illegal under international law, and the Palestinians had asked FIFA to take action against the Israeli FA. Last month, FIFA decided it would not intervene in the matter, with the Palestinians accusing the body of bowing to Israeli pressure. Palestinian FA boss Jibril Rajoub told AFP that Thursday the rankings rise was a "historic achievement" that came despite restrictions on football in the Palestinian territories imposed by Israeli occupation. "With this classification, we have defeated the occupation's measures and its daily harassment, from preventing the freedom of movement of athletes through to all measures that impede Palestinian sport," he said. The Israeli Football Association was not immediately available for comment. Israel qualifies for tournaments with European teams, while Palestine are in the Asian qualifying groups. Palestine was first recognised by FIFA in 1998.
  8. A woman beating up the fake pir with her shoe in Kot Abdul Malik near Sheikhupura on November 23, 2017.

  10. LAHORE: Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah said on Thursday if Asif Ali Zardari became a hurdle in the way of timely elections, then this stain could not be washed away for decades. Speaking to media at the Punjab Assembly, the provincial minister said democracy requires timely elections in the country. He questioned whether the former president has this attitude because of personal resentment or to please someone. Sanaullah, however, urged Zardari to regard the heritage of reconciliatory politics. Fourth time's not the charm: Zardari refuses to meet Nawaz Sharif again Former president foils ex-prime minister?s attempt for the fourth time in three months The provincial minister's comments came hours after Zardari reportedly refused to meet former premier Nawaz Sharif on Thursday, foiling the latter?s attempts for a meeting for the fourth time within three months. The Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) co-chairman was quoted as saying that the former prime minister "only remembers democratic promises where his interests are concerned." "Nawaz Sharif is responsible for the current political situation of the country. Meeting him or shaking his hand is [out of the question]," the PPP co-chairman was quoted as saying. Commenting on the ongoing sit-in in Islamabad, he said his party's government in the centre wants to end it without the use of force. "Those staging the sit-in have no political demands," the minister said. "Everyone trusts the committee led by Raja Zafarul Haq and there is hope for a breakthrough in a week." Criticising the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman, Sanaullah termed Imran Khan a "tool of non-democratic forces."
  11. Murdered journalist Sudip Datta Bhowmik/Facebook NEW DELHI: Indian police have arrested a senior army officer for the murder of a journalist shot dead while investigating allegations of financial fraud against him. Reporter Sudip Dutta Bhaumik was allegedly killed by a junior officer when he went to a paramilitary base in the northeastern state of Tripura on Tuesday to investigate a story. Police said Tapan Debbarma, the commandant of the Second Tripura State Rifles, was arrested Wednesday on charges he ordered his bodyguard to shoot the reporter. "He (Debbarma) was arrested yesterday and produced before the magistrate. He has been remanded to 10 days of police custody," local police superintendent Pradeep Dey told AFP on Thursday. "His security guard Nandu Reang was arrested on Tuesday itself." On Wednesday Bhaumik´s editor Subal Kumar Dey said the murder was linked to articles the reporter had written. He was the third journalist to be killed in as many months in India and newspapers in Tripura on Thursday carried blank editorial pages in protest. In September, a reporter in the state was lynched by a mob during clashes between police and warring political factions. His mutilated body was found the next day. Also in September gunmen shot dead renowned journalist Gauri Lankesh in the southern city of Bangalore. No arrests have been made in her killing, but some believe she was targeted for her outspoken criticism of Hindu nationalism. The Committee to Protect Journalists says 41 reporters have been killed in India since the early 1990s, a figure that excludes the two latest deaths in Tripura.
  12. A woman in Mexico, one of the most dangerous countries for women according to the UN, protests in September 2017 with a sign reading: 'To be a woman without being murdered'/AFP PANAMA CITY: Latin America and the Caribbean is the most violent region in the world for women, the United Nations said, highlighting Central America and Mexico as particularly dangerous. In a report presented in Panama, UN Women and the UN Development Programme (UNDP) found assaults on women persisted in the region despite severe laws aimed at curbing the phenomenon. "The issue of violence against women in Latin America is critical. It´s the most violent region in the world against women outside of conflict contexts," Eugenia Piza-Lopez, head of UNDP´s gender mission in Latin America, told AFP. The rate of sexual violence against women outside of relationships is the highest in the world in the region, and the second-highest for those who are in, or were in, a couple, the report stated. Three of the 10 countries with the highest rates of rape of women and girls were in the Caribbean, it said. Femicide -- the killing of women -- occurred on a "devastating scale" in Central America, it said, explaining that two out three women murdered died because of their gender. "In some countries it has become a severe crisis. In the Northern Triangle (Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala) and Mexico the problem of femicide and violence against women has reached epidemic levels, in many cases with links to organized crime," Piza-Lopez said. Central America´s Northern Triangle is considered the most dangerous area in the world outside war zones, mainly because of rampant gangs and drug cartels. The UN report noted that 24 of the 33 countries in Latin America and the Caribbean have laws against domestic violence, but only nine of them have passed legislation that tackles a range of forms of other violence against women in public or private. It also said that 16 of the countries had femicide on the books, and a few punished newer types of crimes, such as cybercrime, political violence, or acid attacks. Despite those advances, though, the "plague" of violence continues to be a threat to human rights, public health and public safety, it said. The UN recommended strengthening institutions and policies in the region, and allocating resources to empower women. It also advised that "patriarchal" cultural norms that maintain gender inequality needed to be addressed. The report added one third of women worldwide have been a victim of violence in their relationship or of sexual violence by people outside their relationship.
  13. Everything comes at a price, especially stardom. Probably the best and the worst part of being famous is the recognition that comes along with it. The modern technological advancement pressurises people to keep their social media flying high and if you spot a celebrity but have no proof of it on your profile, sorry bro, you ain't cool enough. Recently, Varun Dhawan had a taste of what stardom looks like. Care less never stress A post shared by Varun Dhawan (@varundvn) on Sep 25, 2017 at 11:14pm PDT It was a normal day, and the traffic on the busy roads of Mumbai was on its usual halt. A crazy fan spotted Varun Dhawan on the road and the actor happily obliged her by clicking a selfie! "When my fans smile everything seems worth it." - @Varun_dvn Varun Dhawan was stuck in Mumbai traffic with this fan. She was trying to take pictures of him, He took her phone and clicked a selfie with her. He's the sweetest.⤠#FanLove #BestIcon — Aadil Mansuri (@Aadil_Mansuri_) November 23, 2017 Everyone loved his gesture and his fans praised him for doing this. Varun Dhawan's sweet gesture towards his fan is worth appreciating :) @Varun_dvn — Varun Kingdom (@Varun_Kingdom) November 23, 2017 Varun Dhawan is literally the purest soul ever. — mihika (@_mihikaa) November 23, 2017 All of this, however, came into the notice of the good Samaritans at Mumbai Police. The Mumbai Police has issued a 'challan' and reprimanded him for causing a ruckus. The tweet asked Varun to take his image of a youth icon seriously. .@Varun_dvn These adventures surely work on D silver screen but certainly not on the roads of Mumbai! U have risked ur life,ur admirer's & few others. V expect better from a responsible Mumbaikar & youth icon like U! An E-Challan is on d way 2 ur home. Next time, V will B harsher — Mumbai Police (@MumbaiPolice) November 23, 2017 Varun was quick to revert and accepted his mistake with good humour. He tweeted a prompt apology as well. My apologies ð Our cars weren't moving since we were at a traffic signal and I didn't want to hurt the sentiment of a fan but next time I'll keep safety in mind and won't encourage this. — Varun Dhawan (@Varun_dvn) November 23, 2017 The internet then got divided on opinion about how 'wrong' was this selfie after all. Some questioned the Mumbai Police for not addressing the woman in the picture who is equally involved. Hey @MumbaiPolice what about the girl? She is equally involved in this misadventure. Have you guys sent an e-challan to her too? Or you will target only @Varun_dvn just because he is "an extremely successful" actor and hence a soft target? — The Skin Doctor ð© (@theskindoctor13) November 23, 2017 Others questioned the presence of so many VIP and celebrity cars on the road which halt the daily traffic. What about this? Dont be sorry — Fahad Naseem Sayed (@fahdsayd7) November 23, 2017 Guess there's no winning for being a celebrity. You get the attention but you also pay the price!

  15. Real Madrid defender Dani Carvajal has been charged by UEFA for getting booked on purpose during their 6-0 win at Apoel Nicosia in Champions League Group H on Tuesday to wipe his disciplinary slate clean for the knockout stage. The right-back was shown a yellow card in the 90th minute for time wasting when taking a throw-in, his third booking of the group stage which means he is banned for the final group game at home to Borussia Dortmund on Dec. 6. The yellow card meant holders Madrid, already guaranteed to finish second behind Tottenham Hotspur and progress to the last 16, would have Carvajal available for the knockout rounds of the competition without any yellow cards hanging over him. UEFA?s Control, Ethics and Disciplinary body will deal with the case on Dec. 7 and could suspend Spaniard Carvajal for an additional two matches.
  16. Back in the day, video games were restricted to killing time or, at max, getting virtual thrills you usually couldn't in the real world. However, over the years, the consistent evolution of gaming technologies has not only improved the user experience, but it has led to the advent of various world-wide competitions. The emergence of tournaments like The International, the League of Legends World Championship, the Evolution Championship Series and the Intel Extreme Masters has taken the gaming experience to a whole new level. From just bragging rights amongst friends after a gaming night, the industry has forayed into a new segment popularly known as eSports. Now, a gamer can not only enjoy playing his favourite game, but they can make a killing by winning one of the various global tournaments as well. More importantly, it served a great reply to those who believed that video games will only end up wasting your time and probably leave you with weaker eye-sight. © Twitter/TheWFGamer But, many still argue that while global gaming competitions might serve the purpose of making a quick buck, it would never be able to land a job for the poor-old gamer. Only this year, those imbeciles stand wrong with their moronic jibes. Being an avid gamer and honing his skills has not only helped a 25-year-old earn global recognition, but it has also landed him a job. And, it's not just any average Joe's 9-6 job, gaming has earned him a position with the McLaren Formula 1 team. Wait, what? Yep, you read that right. What does it feel like to be @McLarenF1's official simulator driver? Our World's Fastest Gamer winner, Rudy tells all. #WFGFinals — Worlds Fastest Gamer (@TheWFGamer) November 21, 2017 Rudy van Buren was going about his business in the Netherlands working as a sales manager until he got signed by McLaren as one of their F1 team's simulator drivers for the 2018 season. The youngster defeated 30,000 other entrants in the World's Fastest Gamer eSports competition - a grueling 10-day trial set up by the McLaren F1 team. Making the finals, Rudy and 11 other participants went to the McLaren Technology Centre where they locked horns across a range of simulations, including physical and cognitive tests. And, if you thought it was all about being quick, then you'd be wrong. The winner was expected to have the mental and physical ability, as well as the engineering knowledge to help the team with the 2018 McLaren F1 car for the next season. The Final Week was comprised of simulations of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway - home of the Indy 500, the Suzuka circuit in Japan, the Brazilian Grand Prix venue Interlagos and Le Mans. If that wasn't enough, the finalists took part in an actual 24-hour race at Le Mans in the simulation machines, with each player in a three-person team taking eight hours each. In the end, the final two - Rudy and his fellow countryman Freek Schothorst - were whittled down before spending four hours each in the actual McLaren F1 simulation car, the same one used by two-time F1 World Champion Fernando Alonso and Stoffel Vandoorne before their races.

The PTI chairman further said the provincial assembly has also adopted a resolution pertaining to the merger and the matter has been raised at all forums, prior to approaching the court. He noted the constitution assures provision of basic rights to all citizens based on equality and moved the apex court for ordering FATA's merger with KP.

  18. CAIRO: Egypt's public prosecutor ordered 29 people to be detained for 15 days pending an investigation into accusations they spied for Turkey and joined a "terrorist" group, his office said Wednesday. The 29 suspects - and others who are still at large - are accused of "spying in favour of Turkey and membership in an terrorist organisation", a statement said. The suspects were accused of offering Egyptian citizens an international phone service, which was set up to spy on Egyptians and offer the information to Turkish intelligence. They listened in on those calls to monitor the opinions of Egyptians on conditions in the country, and then leaked the information to Turkish intelligence services. The suspects acted in agreement with "elements from the Turkish security and intelligence services and members of the international Muslim Brotherhood organisation" in a bid to help the Muslim Brotherhood take power in Egypt, the statement said. The public prosecutor's office did not give a timeline for these alleged acts nor was it clear when the suspects were arrested. The suspects were also accused of money laundering, illegal currency trade as well as setting up media entities abroad to disseminate fake news aimed at "stirring up public opinion against (Egypt's) state institutions", the statement said. The statement said authorities searched the homes of the suspects and found computers equipped with surveillance programmes and other equipment to facilitate the international calls. Relations between Egypt and Turkey have been strained since Egypt's army ousted president Mohamed Morsi in 2013. Ankara denounced the move and called Morsi´s ouster a "coup". Several members of Morsi's Moslem Brotherhood - now outlawed in Egypt - have sought refuge in Turkey, which also hosts pro-Brotherhood satellite television channels.

  24. A beautiful winter comes every year but it often comes at the cost of something. Some wishes you could not fulfill, important goals you could not achieve, a relationship you could not save. It was all happening during the whole year but only comes to notice when winter comes and another year ends. With it you fail on some important deadlines, you regret and then you move on to set new goals with the same methodology you used the year before. Do You Feel Disappointed By The End Of The Year? © Photography Office Of, course a new year gives a new beginning but the year went by shall not be forgotten so easily. If you wish to be somewhere and save the things that you could not save last year you need a different approach because the last one does not seem to be working so well for you. Is it? Take a different approach Here is the deal. Till now you have been setting big goals and then living in their dreams. This is not how it works. A measured action is needed and that is not possible without taking the past into account and a regular analysis of the actions you make. Conjectures For example, let's suppose you want to be one of the greatest director or a filmmaker the world has ever seen by the end of this year. Now you get involved in the day to day task having this thing in your subconscious mind that you want to be something big by the end of this year. You delay it today with a thought of having all the time in the world so you could do it tomorrow. No. It does not work this way. If you can not keep a track of your progress on a regular basis you will never be able to achieve. It happens because as a human until we feel like we are making progress we tend to give up on our goal. The Crux © Whiteacres Design The crux of this article is the seven-day rule. You need to break your goal into actionable parts where you get a result by the deadline of every week. Then you need to reverse engineer those seven days and think about what approach you would take to achieve your short-term goal aligned towards your major goal. This way you measure your progress every week and work on something that did not work. You get a feeling that you are constantly working towards your goal and thus are persuaded to take the next optimised step towards achieving it. With a vision of a long-term goal, short-term accomplishment is the key which gives you a direction to move towards. Also, seven days is more than enough time to achieve a part of your big goal. If it is not working for you within seven days then further divide it further into small part till it becomes sufficiently achievable. That's it. It is your turn now to make the move. Are you ready?
  25. An Oxford graduate announced to take the university to court for not getting a first class degree. Faiz Siddiqui said that he will sue the university for £1 million as he was the ?victim of poor teaching?, that costed him the chance of a strong legal career. The history graduate alleged the "inadequate" teaching he received on the Indian special subject part resulted in him only getting a low upper second degree instead of his expected First or high 2:1. Siddiqui alleged that the undesired resulted was due to the teaching staff being absent or on sabbatical leaves, adding that his medical information was not submitted to the examiners by a tutor. Oxford disputes his claims. The university says that his claim that he had lost out in his career was "complete speculation and fanciful". But Siddiqui, 39, maintains that he would have become an international commercial lawyer if he had gained the top qualification at the end of his time at Brasenose College. He claims that his clinical depression and insomnia have been significantly exacerbated by his "inexplicable failure". Siddiqui?s counsel Roger Mallalieu told Mr Justice Foskett at the High Court in London that in 2000, Mr Siddiqui was a "driven young man" aiming at a postgraduate qualification at an Ivy League university before a career at the tax bar in England or a major US law firm. "Whilst a 2:1 degree from Oxford might rightly seem like a tremendous achievement to most, it fell significantly short of Mr Siddiqui's expectations and was, to him, a huge disappointment." His employment history after Oxford in legal and tax roles was "frankly poor" and he was now unemployed, said Mr Mallalieu. "Mr Siddiqui has been badly let down by Oxford. "He went there with high - perhaps extraordinarily high - expectations. "He - and others - became the victim of poor teaching provision by the University in what was anticipated to be his favoured special subject and he, uniquely among his peers, was further disadvantaged by his personal tutor not conveying his knowledge of his illnesses to those responsible for making reasonable adjustments and for moderating his examinations." The university management denied any negligence and causation. Oxford University denies negligence and causation and claims that the case was brought "massively" outside the legal time limit. The seven day hearing is concerned only with liability - with damages to be assessed later if Siddiqui succeeds. Julian Milford, for Oxford University, told the court that Mr Siddiqui complained about insufficient resources but had said he did not notice anything wrong with the quality of the teaching provided except it was "a little bit dull". Siddiqui, he added, had received exactly the same amount of teaching as he would have in any other year. The entire picture of Mr Siddiqui's academic performance was "one of promise laced with inconsistency", he said. Mr Milford said that the contemporaneous records made no reference to Mr Siddiqui's mental health during his final year, although he claimed he made his tutor aware of his depression. It was "exceptionally improbable" that a "conscientious" tutor like the individual concerned would not have advised a student to get a medical certificate in the alleged circumstances as cogent evidence would have been needed to put before the examiners. The only action that could have been taken by the examiners when considering medical evidence would be to award a candidate his "proper class" and in Siddiqui's case, that was unarguably a 2:1 and not a First. Mr Siddiqui's claim ignored the fact that he had excellent opportunities at the start, including a training contract with one of the world's leading law firm Clifford Chance which was a "real feather in his cap".
