29 dead after bus carrying 40 skids off Yamuna Expressway






New Delhi: Twenty-nine persons died after a bus carrying 40 passengers fell into a gorge on Yamuna Expressway in Agra. The bus fell into a jharna nalla on Yamuna Expressway in Agra. Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has ordered an inquiry by a committee consisting of Transport Commissioner, Divisional Commissioner & IG Agra to investigate the incident. He has directed the committee to submit a report in 24 hours and also make suggestions on long term recommendations to avoid such accidents.

PM Narendra Modi expressed grief over the death of people in the mishap. "Pained by the bus accident in Agra, Uttar Pradesh. Condolences to the families who have lost their loved ones. I pray that those injured recover fast. The state government and local administration are providing all possible assistance to the affected," he said.

Adityanath also expressed grief and condolences at the death of the passengers and directed the concerned officials to provide all possible medical attention to the injured. Defence Minister Rajnath Singh also took cognizance of the accident and spoke to District Magistrate & gave directions for proper treatment of those injured.

"Saddened to hear about the tragic loss of lives in an unfortunate bus accident near Agra. My heartfelt condolences to the grieving families. I pray for the injured a speedy recovery," said BJP National Working President Jagat Prakash Nadda.

The bus reportedly belonged to Awadh Depot of Uttar Pradesh (UP) Roadways. According to multiple reports, the mishap took place when the driver of the bus - UPSRTC's Jan Rath fell asleep while driving. The bus hit the divider and fell into a gap at around 4.15 am. 

"The incident took place around 4:30 am. Driver probably dozed off & the speeding bus broke our barrier & fell in the drain. Search operation underway," Agra DM NG Ravi Kumar was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.

"One Sleeper Coach passenger bus travelling from Lucknow to Delhi met with an accident on Yamuna Expressway. It fell into the side fall about 15 feet deep. 20 passengers rescued so far. Efforts are on for the rest," IG Agra said in a tweet on UP Police's official Twitter handle. 


"DGP UP OP Singh has directed to carry out relief & rescue work in full swing and is supervising it personally. All senior officers present at the spot. Our condolences to the bereaved family members & prayers for the departed soul. We also wish a speedy recovery to the injured," UP police said in another tweet.

Shabana Azmi reignites intolerance debate, says anyone who criticises govt is branded 'anti-national'






Indore: Reigniting the intolerance debate, veteran actress Shabana Azmi during an event in Madhya Pradesh's Indore said that anyone who criticises the government is branded as an "anti-national" while asserting that nobody needs a certificate of patriotism from the government. 

"It is always necessary that we point out our flaws for the betterment of our country. If we do not, how can our conditions improve? But the atmosphere is such that if we criticise the government we are branded as anti-nationals. We should not be afraid, nobody needs their certificate," Azmi said. 

Shabana was speaking after being honoured with 'Kunti Mathur Award' instituted by the Anandmohan Mathur Charitable Trust in recognition of her work for women.

Speaking at the event, Shabana asserting that people should fight the situation and not kneel before it. "India is a beautiful country. Any attempt to divide people cannot be good for this country," she said.

Notably, senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh was present during the event and used the opportunity to take potshots at the government. Slamming the recently elected Bhopal MP - BJP's Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur who defeated him in the Lok Sabha polls, Congress veteran Digvijaya Singh said, "Today the person who killed Mahatma Gandhi is being hailed as a patriot. There are reports that Nathuram Godse's statue is being constructed. Can we not raise our voice against this?"

The Congress leader also slammed BJP MLA Akash Vijayvargiya for attacking a municipal corporation officer with a bat. Singh said, "Akash's father (Kailash Vijayvargiya) shows a shoe while his son shows a bat." Singh also cited economist Amartya Sen's statement on Lord Ram to corner the BJP, terming its ideology as "anti-women." 

"Sangh is anti-women. Why don't they take Lord Ram's wife Sita ji's name? Why don't they say Jai Siya Ram?" Singh was quoted by ANI as saying. 

Last week, Nobel laureate Amartya Sen had hit out at RSS over the rising Hindutva politics in West Bengal. "I haven't heard Jai Shri Ram earlier. It is now used to beat up people. I think it has no association with Bengali culture. Nowadays, Ram Navami is celebrated more in Kolkata which I haven't heard earlier," Sen had said.

Indian claims to have seize Pakistani Ship - Coast Guard seizes Pakistani boat 'Al Madina' with heroin worth Rs 6 billion

Indian claims to have seize Pakistani Ship - Coast Guard seizes Pakistani boat 'Al Madina' with heroin worth Rs 6 billion

Indian claims to have seize Pakistani Ship - Coast Guard seizes Pakistani boat 'Al Madina' with heroin worth Rs 6 billion


The Pakistani boat was seized in a joint operation by the Coast Guard and Directorate of Revenue Intelligence (DRI).

MUMBAI: The Indian Coast Guard has seized a Pakistani fishing vessel carrying drugs worth Rs 600 crores in the international market off Gujarat coast.

The Pakistani fishing vessel was carrying about 100 kg of heroin, which was seized in a joint operation by the Coast Guard and the Directorate of Revenue Intelligence (DRI).

''Indian Coast Guard apprehended a Pakistani fishing boat today inside Indian waters off International Maritime Boundary Line. 194 packets of suspected narcotic substances were seized from it. Further investigation underway,'' a statement from the Coast Guard said.

The Pakistani vessel, "Al Madina", and its crew has been detained for questioning, the Coast Guard spokesman said. 

The Pakistani vessel was seized following a tip-off received on Monday evening, a Coast Guard official said in a statement.

Sharing more details, the official said that a tip-off was received on Monday evening about a Pakistani vessel suspected to be engaged in drug trafficking. A similar input was received on the following day from the DRI.

After the two intelligence inputs, the ICG deployed two interceptor boats C-437 and C-408 from Gujarat`s Jakhua and Okho coasts, and a Dornier aircraft from the Porbandar coast to augment the search.

The ICG Ship 'Arinjay', which was on patrol off Indo-Pak IMBL, was also alerted about the suspicious vessel.

In the wee hours of Tuesday, this suspicious vessel crossed the IMBL towards Indian side and started moving towards Jakhua coast.

The vessel was kept under surveillance and intercepted at around 9:15 AM, about eight nautical miles inside the Indian waters. The vessel was found to be a Pakistani fishing boat 'Al Madina', registered at Karachi.

It was escorted to Jakhua harbour for detailed investigation and rummaging.

Pakistan expresses deep concern over remarks by Indian Finance Minister on FATF

Pakistan expresses deep concern over remarks by Indian Finance Minister on FATF


Islamabad, May 03, 2019: The Government of Pakistan expresses its deep concern over the statement made by the Indian Finance Minister yesterday about India’s intention to have “Pakistan downgraded on the FATF list”. The statement re-confirms Pakistan’s longstanding concerns that this technical forum is being politicized by India against Pakistan.

India has made several efforts in the past as well to politicize the proceedings at FATF. Prior to the FATF plenary meeting in February 2019, India circulated its own assessment of Pakistan’s progress and solicited immediate support for “blacklisting” Pakistan. On several previous occasions, calculated leaks were made to the Indian media about the proceedings of FATF, which are strictly confidential.

These instances of politicization by India were brought to the attention of the President of FATF by the Finance Minister of Pakistan. India’s attempts to politicize the proceedings in FATF against Pakistan call into question its credentials for co-chairing and being a member of the Asia Pacific Joint Group that reviews the progress made by Pakistan to implement the FATF Action Plan.

Pakistan remains committed to fully implementing the FATF Action Plan. This commitment has been made at the highest political level. However, FATF must ensure that the process remains fair, unbiased and firmly grounded in the technical criteria of the forum.

Indian Court Moves To Lift Ban On Chinese Video App TikTok

Indian Court Moves To Lift Ban On Chinese Video App TikTok

Indian Court Moves To Lift Ban On Chinese Video App TikTok


NEW DELHI (Reuters): An Indian state court on Wednesday moved to lift a ban on popular video app TikTok in the country, two lawyers involved in the case said, in a boost for its developer Beijing Bytedance Technology Co.

Earlier this month, the court in the southern state of Tamil Nadu ordered the federal government to prohibit TikTok downloads, saying the app was encouraging pornography and could expose children to sexual predators.
 
Acting upon subsequent instructions from the federal IT ministry, Apple Inc and Alphabet Incs Google last week removed TikTok from their Indian app stores.

But on Wednesday, hearing a plea from Bytedance, the state court reversed its April 3 decision pushing for the ban, K. Neelamegam, a lawyer who argued against Bytedance in the case, told Reuters.

Neelamegam added that his client, an individual who had filed a public interest litigation calling for the ban, did not plan to appeal the courts latest decision.

A senior government official told Reuters the IT ministry, once it received the courts order, would ask Apple and Google to allow the TikTok app to return on their platforms.

A spokesman for TikTok said the company welcomed the courts decision. We are grateful for the opportunity to continue serving our users better, he said.

TikTok allows users to create and share short videos with special effects and is one of the worlds most popular apps. It has been downloaded by nearly 300 million users so far in India, out of more than 1 billion downloads globally, according to analytics firm Sensor Tower.

TikTok features memes and music videos, with some clips showing youngsters, some scantily clad, lip-syncing and dancing to popular tunes. Some Indian politicians and parents say its content is inappropriate.

A second lawyer involved in the case, who declined to be named, said Bytedance argued in the state court that TikTok was just a platform where users upload their videos and the company should not be held liable for their actions.

A very minuscule proportion of TikToks videos were considered inappropriate or obscene, the company has previously said in a court filing.

Bytedance had also urged Indias Supreme Court to quash the ban, but the case was referred back to the state court. The ban was resulting in financial losses of up to $500,000 a day for Bytedance, and had put more than 250 jobs at risk, the company had said.

The ban worried the social media industry in India as it sees legal worries mounting if courts increasingly regulate content on their platforms.

This is India -  5 million men lost jobs between 2016 and 2018, says report

This is India - 5 million men lost jobs between 2016 and 2018, says report

This is India -  5 million men lost jobs between 2016 and 2018, says report



In addition to open unemployment among the educated, the less educated (and likely informal) have seen job losses and reduced work opportunities over this period.

Bengaluru: Employment opportunities declined and five million men lost their jobs between 2016 and 2018, according to a report released by the city-based Azim Premji University.

The decline in job opportunities coincided with demonetisation in November 2016, although no direct causal relationship can be established based only on these trends, the State of Working India-2019 (SWI) report said.

"Accounting for the increase in working-age population, the decline in the workforce participation rate (WPR) amounts to a net loss of 5 million jobs during this period (2016-2018). "Recall that this analysis applies to men only. When we take women into account, the number of jobs lost will be higher," the report released on Tuesday read.

Underlining that the last three years were "one of great turmoils" in the Indian labour market as well as in the system of labour statistics, the report pointed out that unemployment rose steadily post 2011. It found that the higher educated and the young were vastly over represented among the unemployed.

It used data from the Consumer Pyramids Survey of the Centre for Monitoring the Indian Economy (CMIE-CPDX) to understand the employment situation between 2016 and 2018. In addition to open unemployment among the educated, the less educated (and likely informal) have seen job losses and reduced work opportunities over this period.

The report also found that women were worse off than men with respect to levels of unemployment as well as reduced labour force participation.

As a remedial measure, the report recommended the need for Urban Employment Guarantee Programme (UEGP) on the lines of rural employment guarantee scheme that can create employment opportunities for up to 50 million workers in small towns. Besides UEGP, the SWI report has suggested three more recommendations.

It emphasised on increasing the spending on education up to six per cent and on health up to three per cent of the gross domestic product to create over two million good jobs while supplying high quality public services.

Underlining that employment generation and public service provisions should not be compromised for meeting arbitrary fiscal deficit targets, the report called for greater public spending in view of Indias fiscal situation. It also highlighted the need for a concerted new industrial policy to revive Indian manufacturing.

Releasing the report Amit Basole, associate professor at Azim Premji University and lead author of the report, said, "We are positive that our four policy proposals will spur job creation and improve the basic services in our country providing equitable job opportunities for all.

"The report is our ongoing effort to present well-researched data in the areas of job creation, employment, and sustainable livelihoods." The report analysed employment trends since 2016, which were not part of SWI 2018, the first report published in September 2018.

Jet Airways shutdown: 16,000 permanent employees jobless now, says employee's union

Jet Airways shutdown: 16,000 permanent employees jobless now, says employee's union



Delhi: Cash-strapped Jet Airways, which decided to suspend all its operations from Wednesday, has rendered 16,000 permanent employees jobless while 22,000 employees have been affected indirectly, said Kiran Pawaskar, Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader and president of All India Jet Airways Officers and Staff Association addressing a press conference.
Pawaskar said most of the aviation companies have faced shutdown (like Kingfisher Airlines) and this sector does not give any surity to the employees. The employees union had already raised this issue earlier in the Vidhan Parishad but there was no result. 

Jet employees have not got their salary for the last few months. Pawaskar said, no other company is willing to take Jet Airways employees now.

Questioning banks decision to not provide emergency funding of Rs 400 crore, Pawaskar said "Chowksi and Mallya ran away but Jet people are still here. So, why the money is not given?"

The employee's union also questioned bank's decision to oust Naresh Goyal out of the Jet board.  "When Naresh Goyal could make this company so big, why was he booted out....There is nobody who can be questioned," Pawaskar said.

Facebook deletes accounts linked to India's Congress party, Pakistan military - Reuters

Facebook deletes accounts linked to India's Congress party, Pakistan military - Reuters

Facebook deletes accounts linked to India's Congress party, Pakistan military - Reuters


NEW DELHI/ISLAMABAD (Reuters) - Facebook has deleted 712 accounts and 390 pages in India and Pakistan for “inauthentic behavior”, it said on Monday, many linked to India’s opposition Congress party days before a national election, and others related to Pakistan’s military.

Facebook has come under increasing pressure around the world to ensure its social media platform is not abused for political purposes or to spread misinformation.

The action against accounts with alleged links to Congress, the party led by the Gandhi family that has dominated Indian politics for much of its post-independence era, marks a bold move by Facebook.

The platform has more than 300 million users in India, where it has been a key political campaigning tool in the election - the largest democratic exercise in the world - starting on April 11.

While Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his rivals use official Facebook accounts to send political messages to millions of followers, thousands of unverified pages also share posts to support or criticize politicians.

Among the most significant things it has removed, Facebook said it had taken down 549 accounts and 138 pages linked to India’s Congress for “coordinated inauthentic behavior”.

In a Tweet, Congress said none of its official pages or those run by its verified volunteers had been taken down. The party is awaiting a response from Facebook to provide a list of all pages and accounts which were removed, it said.

Also removed were 15 accounts linked to an Indian IT company which, among other things, issued posts on Modi’s ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and alleged misconduct of political opponents including Congress, Facebook said.

The Digital Forensic Research Lab at think tank Atlantic Council, which partnered with Facebook for the review, said the accounts linked to Congress pushed satirical posts, while pro-BJP pages “carried vitriolic posts against opposition leaders”.

“The fact that partisans on both sides resorted to such tactics is a troubling feature,” it said in a blog post.

In the face of increasing calls for tougher regulation of online content, Facebook has been taking similar measures elsewhere.

In Pakistan, it removed 57 accounts, 24 pages, seven groups and 15 Instagram accounts, also for inauthentic behavior, as part of a network that originated there and was linked to employees of a unit of the Pakistani military.

Nuclear-armed neighbors India and Pakistan both sent warplanes to attack each other’s territory in February after a suicide bomb attack claimed by a Pakistan-based militant group killed 40 Indian paramilitary police in the disputed region of Kashmir. The attack also led to a deluge of fake news, another issue social media companies have been grappling with.

CRITICISM OF POLITICIANS
Facebook’s head of cybersecurity policy, Nathaniel Gleicher, said the firm had removed accounts based on their behavior, not their content.

The company’s review found individuals using fake accounts and issuing posts including criticism of the BJP who were “associated with an INC (Indian National Congress) IT Cell”.

Two of the samples shared by Facebook were of posts that criticized Modi’s initiatives and called for supporting the Congress party and its president, Rahul Gandhi.

Separately, Facebook removed 12 accounts and one page, plus one group and one Instagram account, which linked to individuals related to an Indian IT firm Silver Touch. Asked what Silver Touch’s link with politics was, Gleicher told Reuters earlier it was “associated with” a mobile app promoted by Modi’s ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

After BJP’s IT head, Amit Malviya, told Reuters both the party and the app had “nothing to do with Silver Touch”, Facebook in a new statement late on Monday said it had “seen no evidence to date of Silver Touch being associated with the NaMo App on our platform,” referring to the Narendra Modi app.

“We won’t be speculating about off-platform connections of the actors we took down today,” a spokeswoman said.

Facebook’s actions on Monday also included the removal of a “pro-BJP” page called “The India Eye”, which had more than 2 million followers, “was strongly nationalist”, a vocal supporter of Modi and a critic of Gandhi, Atlantic Council said.

Facebook said it had also removed another 227 pages and 94 accounts in India for violating its policies on spam and misrepresentation.

In Pakistan, Facebook said it removed pages and accounts on Facebook and Instagram that spread information about Pakistani politics, the Indian government and the Pakistani military.

Those accounts were being run by employees of the Pakistani military’s public relations arm, the Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR), Facebook said.

No comment was immediately available from ISPR.

These Pakistani accounts, pages, groups and Instagram accounts removed from Facebook had more than 2.8 million followers.

Last week the firm removed a social media network in the Philippines and took the unusual step of linking it to a businessman who said he had managed the president’s online election campaign in 2016.

It has also taken such action recently against accounts in Russia and Iran.

Indian-American couple Satish Kartan and Sharmistha Barai held guilty of human trafficking

Indian-American couple Satish Kartan and Sharmistha Barai held guilty of human trafficking

Indian-American couple Satish Kartan and Sharmistha Barai held guilty of human trafficking




An Indian-American couple from California - Satish Kartan and Sharmistha Barai - has been found guilty to the charges of forced labour of foreign nationals from India and Nepal. 

Washington: An Indian-American couple from California - Satish Kartan and Sharmistha Barai - has been found guilty to the charges of forced labour of foreign nationals from India and Nepal. 

Residents of Stockton in California, Satish Kartan (45) and his wife Sharmistha Barai (45) took advantage of overseas workers, forcing them to work without pay, physically abusing them and threatening them of negative repercussions if they tried to leave, Assistant Attorney General Eric Dreiband said.

The Indian-American couple faces a maximum statutory penalty of 20 years in prison and a USD 250,000 fine. The sentencing is scheduled for June 6.


According to court documents and evidence presented at trial, between February 2014 and October 2016, Kartan and Barai hired workers from overseas to perform domestic labour in their home in Stockton.

In advertisements seeking workers on the internet and India-based newspapers, the defendants made false claims regarding the wages and the duties of employment. Then, once the workers arrived at the defendants' Stockton residence, Kartan and Barai forced them to work 18 hours a day with limited rest and nourishment.

Few of them were paid any wage, court documents said. They kept their domestic workers from leaving and induced them to keep working for them by threatening them, by creating an atmosphere of fear, control and disempowerment, and at times, by physically hitting or burning them. When a victim pushed back or said she wanted to leave, it got worse.


Victims flew from India and Nepal to testify. According to evidence presented at trial, the couple struck one worker on multiple occasions.

Barai threatened to kill her and throw her bones in the garbage, backhanded her across the face for talking back and slammed her hands down on a gas stove, causing her to suffer first- and second-degree burns on her hands from the flames.

They also threatened several other victims to coerce them to keep working, including by telling the victims they would report them to police or immigration authorities if they tried to leave. Throughout the victims' time in their home, they were deprived of sleep and food.


According to court papers, they subjected the victims to verbal abuse and harassment in an effort to intimidate them into continuing to provide labour and services.

"Kartan and Barai did not simply fail to pay victims for their work," said Sean Ragan, Special Agent in Charge of the Sacramento FBI Field Office.

"They deprived them of their dignity and robbed them of their federally-protected civil rights," he alleged.

PM Modi, you lied in Amethi, don't you feel ashamed at all: Rahul Gandhi

PM Modi, you lied in Amethi, don't you feel ashamed at all: Rahul Gandhi


Soon after Rahul Gandhi's attack on PM Modi, Union Minister Smriti Irani slammed the Congress chief for attacking the prime minister with "wrong facts", saying that he did not even bother to check what was being inaugurated in Amethi.

A day after Prime Minister Narendra Modi laid the foundation stone of a factory to manufacture advanced AK-203 rifles in Amethi, Congress president Rahul Gandhi claimed that he had inaugurated the ordnance factory in 2010 and accused the prime minister of lying to people. He further asked if PM Modi "feels ashamed at all" for lying.

PM Narendra Modi visited Amethi district in Uttar Pradesh on Sunday where he unveiled an Indo-Russian ordnance factory that will produce the iconic Kalashnikov rifles.

However, Rahul Gandhi accused the prime minister of lying to the people and said, "Prime Ministerji, I had laid the foundation stone for the Ordinance Factory in Amethi in 2010. For the past many years, several small arms have been produced. Yesterday you went to Amethi and because of your habit; you were forced to lie once again. Don't you feel ashamed at all?"

At least 44 killed by cow vigilantes in India over last 3 years: Human Rights Watch

At least 44 killed by cow vigilantes in India over last 3 years: Human Rights Watch

At least 44 killed by cow vigilantes in India over last 3 years: Human Rights Watch


NEW DELHI (BLOOMBERG) - Radical cow protection groups in India have killed at least 44 people over the last three years and often received support from law enforcement and Hindu nationalist politicians, said a new report from Human Rights Watch.

The 104-page report unveiled this week examines Hindu nationalist vigilante attacks and said 36 of the dead were members of India's large Muslim minority.

About 280 people have been injured in more than 100 attacks between May 2015 and December 2018, the report by the New York-based group said.


Members of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party, which supports policies to protect cows revered by the country's majority Hindus, have "increasingly used communal rhetoric that has spurred a violent vigilante campaign against beef consumption and those deemed linked to it", the group said.

Mr Modi has previously condemned vigilante violence and said killing people because of cow worship "is not acceptable". In India's federal structure, law and order is a state subject.

"No less than the Prime Minister called such elements criminals and urged state governments to act against anyone perpetrating violence under the false pretext of cow vigilantism," BJP lawmaker and spokesman G.V.L. Narasimha Rao said in a text message on Wednesday (Feb 20).

He said cow-related violence has also happened under opposition Congress party governments.

"BJP bashing is a favourite theme of organisations and international media."

Mob kills man, 50, in India after rumours swirl that his family stored, consumed beef at home
The report, which also highlights the impact these so-called cow vigilantes have had on the rural economy, comes ahead of national elections in which some expect increased religious tensions between Hindus and Muslims.

A recent major attack against security forces in India's Muslim-majority Jammu and Kashmir has also heightened tensions, with one BJP-appointed governor of an Indian state calling for citizens to boycott travelling to Kashmir and Kashmiri businesses outside of the state.

Human Rights Watch said there is no government data for cow-related incidents in the comparable period before Mr Modi came to power in 2014.

However, the group cites India civil society and media groups, including a fact-checking site, that found such incidents took place between 2012 and 2015, with none resulting in any deaths.

There have been news reports from across India of deadly attacks on Muslims dairy farmers and those suspected of eating beef.

As recently as December, a police officer was killed while responding to a mob of Hindu radicals rioting in the state of Uttar Pradesh over cow deaths.

The Human Rights Watch report is one of the first detailed surveys of deaths linked to violent cow protection groups, which are not tracked separately in official Indian crime statistics.

Since the partition of British India in 1947, which created Muslim-majority Pakistan, the sizeable Muslim minority in Hindu-majority India have suffered discrimination and violence.

There are an estimated 170 million Muslims in India, and academic research shows there is actually declining inter-generational social mobility among Muslims, despite gains for poor Hindus.

The Human Rights Watch report notes the country's rural economy has been disrupted by the vigilante violence, which also hurts many Hindus.

India's bovine meat export industry, one of the largest in the world, has been hit as farmers fear going to cattle markets or travelling to sell with spent dairy buffalo.

Farmers have generally sold unproductive livestock to slaughterhouses - some of which have been targeted by Hindu nationalist politicians.

But now farmers are simply letting the animals roam free. That has led to the destruction of farmers' crops, the report notes.
