By 52-48 Vote, Senate acquits President Trump | Diya TV News

WASHINGTON (Diya TV)  — Along party lines as expected, President Trump was acquitted by the Republican-controlled Senate 52 to 48 on the two articles of impeachment brought forth by the Democratic-controlled House of Representatives. An intriguing footnote to this partisan battle is that former Republican Presidential nominee and current Utah Senator Mitt Romney was the only member of the GOP to vote to convict Trump, the first Senator in American history ever to vote to remove a President in his own party.

59 year old Munir Hawara received 11 years and eight months in prison for hiring two people to set fires at a competing liquor store owned by Jaljit Singh Rana in Riverside, California. The two men hired to do the job, Willis Simmons and Randy Ramirez are already serving a prison sentence for throwing molotov cocktails into the store.

Amity

SAN FRANCISCO (Diya TV) — The FBI says, CEO Ridhima Singh of Amity Home Health Care is among the 28 people, that include doctors and nurses, accused in the scheme. Federal prosecutors charged the Bay Area’s largest home health care provider, Amity Home Health Care, with involvement in a kickback scheme that led to $115 million in tainted claims. The complaint said medical professionals received $8 million worth of bribes disguised as payroll, phony medical directorships, reimbursements, entertainment or gifts, in what the Department of Justice said was simply “a cash for patients scheme.”

The man accused of stabbing and killing 62 year old Parmjit Singh in Tracy made his first court appearance. 21 year old Anthony Kreiter-Rhoads of Tracy pleaded not guilty of homicide during his arraignment. Police are still investigating the motive behind the crime.

NEW YORK (Diya TV) — Indian American and Chicago-based fashion designer Mac Duggal made his New York Fashion Week debut this year, among the items featured this year from his highly-acclaimed ‘Fabulouss!’ line were a prom collection for plus-sized teens, who often go unrepresented in the fashion industry.

Duggal’s line has become the gold standard in plus size clothing for those seeking a full-figured option. His enthusiasm for women’s fashion was originally conceived from merging the colorfully rich designs of India’s royal history and opulent traditions. His early creations have stamped his legacy as a force to be reckoned with in the world of prom dresses and apparel.

Duggal continued to grow his line by splitting it into a dozen distinct social occasion lines. His success is highlighted by the many awards throughout his celebrated career; most recently was his induction into the Smithsonian Museum’s Family of Voices exhibit, which focuses on successful entrepreneurs in the United States.

Indian American designers continue to etch their chapter into the fashion history books, with both seasoned and emerging talent offering a range of visions to showcase on the runways. For the past few years, designers such as Naeem Khan, Bhibu Mohapatra, and Nepali-American designer Prabal Gurung — who received standing ovations from actress Priyanka Chopra and Hillary Clinton’s former vice chair of her presidential campaign, Huma Abedin— have been regulars at Fashion Week.

Actress Sara Jessica Parker was seen sitting in the front row for Duggal’s show, and was seen standing and cheering, as well.

Designer Naeem Khan’s gowns have become a favorite of former First Lady Michelle Obama. Raised in Mumbai, Khan’s vast knowledge of textiles was influenced by his father and grandfather, both of whom designed clothing for India’s royal families. Khan started his own line in 2003 and has dressed other well-known names, including Beyonce, Kate Middleton, and Taylor Swift.

“My family has been in the fashion business for over one hundred years in India, so it has always been a part of my life,” he said. “I have brought the tradition and craftsmanship of my heritage to very classic and sleek shapes, and I think that is what sets me apart,” he said.
