Ludhiana, October 4

Gurmeet Singh Kular and Manjinder Singh Sachdeva, president and senior vice-president of the Federation of Industrial and Commercial Organisation (FICO), have demanded extension of date for submission of business plan, construction and commencement of business from Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh.

CINCINNATI — Twelve days before Evans Landscaping owner Doug Evans was to begin serving a 21-month sentence for minority contracting fraud, a federal judge delayed his report date for the fourth time, as he considers whether Evans’ health concerns should allow him to skip prison altogether.

U.S. District Court Judge Michael Barrett, who presided over Evans’ month-long trial in 2018, signed an order on Wednesday giving Evans a three-month delay on his prison report date from October 5 to January 8.

This is the third time Barrett has delayed the prison report date because Evans’ attorney, Ben Dusing, insisted his client’s poor health would put him at risk of contracting COVID-19 while in prison. He wants the high-profile Newtown entrepreneur to serve his punishment through home confinement.

“He is a first-time, non-violent offender. He does not request a reduction of the time of the home confinement, but simply that he
