Photo by Getty Images.Massachusetts state police have located the gun that could link former New England Patriot Aaron Hernandez to the double murder from last year, according to CBS 3 of Springfield, Mass.Police discovered the gun following a June 21 car crash on Interstate 91 in Springfield, Mass., during an inventory of the wrecked car. The car belonged to Jailene Diaz-Ramoz of Bristol, Conn.A .38-caliber Smith and Wesson revolver was in the car’s trunk inside a briefcase. Ballistics testing matched the gun with the bullets fired in the death of two men in Boston in 2012.Hernandez is already facing a charge of murder in the death of Odin Lloyd, and that case led them to the as-yet-unsolved July 2012 double homicide of Daniel Abreu and Safiro Furtado.Hernandez’s possible connection to the murders of Abreu and Furtado remains under investigation. On July 16, 2012, Hernandez and his associates were allegedly involved in a fight with Abreu and Furtado at Cure, a Boston nightclub. Soon afterward, the two men were gunned down in their vehicle when an SUV with Rhode Island license plates pulled up alongside them and opened fire. Police believe that an SUV towed from the home of Hernandez’s uncle was the one used in the homicides.CBS 3 of Springfield reported that the gun belonged to a friend who Diaz-Ramos called “Chicago.” She said “Chicago” is a football player, and that he and his friends wanted to leave the gun with her so that they didn’t have to bring it with them.Diaz-Ramos was arraigned in Springfield District Court on charges of illegal possession of a firearm and ammunition, and was later released on $1,000 bail.

Our workers had been killed but we have never retaliated to take revenge.”In Balarampur, the BJP has bagged two Zila Parishad seats.

Kolkata: Housing Infrastructure Development Corporation ( HIDCO) has proposed to introduce smart paperticket to facilitate the visitors and stop unauthorised entry of people at the Eco Park. Eco park, the biggest urban park in eastern India, has recorded 1.5 crore footfall since its opening in 2015. At Gate 3, near Misti Hub, a smart paper ticket has been introduced which does away with the plastic RFID cards but is able to operate the automatic gates in the same way. It allows just one visitor to enter after ticket scanning and closes down the gates rapidly to prevent a second visitor to enter unauthorisedly.

So one can’t buy one ticket and pass it across the fence to a friend and enter again. There are six entry gates at the Eco Park. Lakhs of visitors enter through these, the most popular ones being at Gates numbers 2 and 4. There are ticket counters with multiple windows manned by staff of Hidco to issue tickets. On payment a white RFID enabled plastic card is issued from the ticket counter to each visitor and on insertion in the slot at the automatic gates the gate flaps will open for a few seconds to let the visitor go in and then rapidly close. This worked well as networked software system also counted the number of cards issued and thus the accounts closing at the day’s end (Eco Park closes at 8.30 pm in summer). But there was no receipt with the visitor as a result of which, once inside, no further surprise random checks could be done to prevent unauthorised entry.
