Pakistan releases Indian soldier who crossed LoC

Chavan, 22, of 37 Rashtriya Rifles, was taken into custody by Pakistan Army after he inadvertently crossed the Line of Control (LoC) in the Mendhar sector of Jammu and Kashmir in September last year


Pak releases Indian soldier who crossed LoCPakistan on Saturday released Indian Army soldier, Sepoy Chandu Babulal Chavan, who had inadvertently crossed the LoC and was in the captivity of the neighbouring country since September last year.

Pakistan defence and border authorities handed over Chavan at the Wagah-Attari joint check post to Indian border guards on Saturday, Border Security Force (BSF) officials said here. He was handed over to Army authorities after his return to India.

Chavan, 22, of 37 Rashtriya Rifles, was taken into custody by Pakistan Army after he inadvertently crossed the Line of Control (LoC) in the Mendhar sector of Jammu and Kashmir in September last year.

The Pakistan Army in a statement earlier said that Chavan had “deserted his post at the LOC due to his grievances of maltreatment against his commanders”.

“He wilfully crossed LOC on September 29, 2016 and surrendered himself to Pakistan Army,” the Pakistan Army’s media wing said.

It said that “as a gesture of goodwill and in continuation of our efforts to maintain peace and tranquility along LOC and WB (International Border, Sepoy Chandu Babulal Chavan has been convinced to return to his own country and will be handed over to Indian authorities at Wahga Border on humanitarian grounds.”

India had been in regular touch with Pakistan for the release of Chavan.

Meanwhile, Chavan’s kin and residents of his native village Bohivir in northern Maharashtra were overjoyed on his release on Saturday by Pakistan. His family thanked authorities for securing his safe return.

Scores of villagers came out into the streets to greet the Chavan family, who were overwhelmed by the unexpected turn of events, laughing and crying at the same time.

Chavan’s elder brother Bhushan said: “We are extremely grateful to the government for securing his safe release. We shall remain indebted to (Minister of State for Defence) Subhash Bhamre for all his help in ensuring his return home.”

“It is unbelievable and the news is still sinking in. We are so happy… for us, its like all festivals — Diwali, Holi — coming together simultaneously and we shall celebrate when he comes home after such a long time,” his married sister Rupali Patil said wiping away tears of joy.

After hearing of the news of Chavan’s capture, his aged grandmother suffered a heart attack and died a few days later.

Bhamre — who represents Dhule constituency where Chavan’s village is — maintained regular touch with his family all these months.

At a function in Mumbai 10 days ago, Bhamre had indicated the possibility of securing Chavan’s early release from Pakistan though he did not specify any time-frame.

Millions of women protest against Donald Trump worldwide

Up to half a million women are thought to have joined a protest march in Washington DC against Donald Trump’s presidency – more than the number that attended his inauguration.

Organisers of the Women’s March on Washington said in a mission statement that participants were “hurting and scared” as Mr Trump began his term in the White House.

Messages on signs included “The future is female” and “Less fear more love”.

More than 600 “sister marches” were held in conjunction with the Washington event around the world – including in Sydney, London and other major US cities including Chicago, Atlanta and New York.

There was also a blockbuster turnout in Los Angeles, where an estimated 750,000 demonstrators took to the streets.

The massive turnout in the District of Columbia forced organisers to change plans for a formal march on the White House, because there were apparently too many people standing along the route.

Pop star Madonna was one of several celebrities who addressed the crowd.

She said: “Yes I have thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House, but I know that this won’t change anything. We cannot fall into despair. We choose love.

Ugly Betty star America Ferrera, who helped to organise the event, told those who had gathered: “It’s been a heartrending time to be both a woman and an immigrant in this country.

“But the President is not America. His cabinet is not America. Congress is not America. We are America and we are here to stay.”

Scarlett Johansson also spoke at the rally, while other celebrities, including Katy Perry and Amy Schumer were expected to attend.

Organisers of a similar event in London said an estimated 100,000 people had taken part.

Thousands in London for Women's March

Women’s March London tweeted: “Incredible turn out! We’ve taken the London streets.”

It began at the American Embassy in Grosvenor Square, taking in Park Lane, Piccadilly and Pall Mall before concluding with a rally in Trafalgar Square.

Walking along Piccadilly, the marchers chanted: “Build bridges, not walls.”

Slogans on placards included “Dump Trump”, “Reject hate, reclaim politics” and “No to racism, no to Trump”.

One protester, 32-year-old Kim McInally, held a sign saying: “My p**** is not up for grabs.”

“Yesterday was seen as the official start of fascism coming back,” she said.Women's March Los Angeles

“Human rights and human equality is getting pushed further and further down the list.”

Megan, from Canada, told Sky News: “I’m marching for my future. I’m marching for the enormous contribution women have made in the past. Most importantly, I’m marching in unison with my sisters across the world.”

Iron Man 3 actress Rebecca Hall, who was also among the protesters, said: “Yesterday was a confusing day and a sad day. I was sad to see Obama leave … We do not know what the Government is going to be like.”

Other British cities hosting protests included Manchester, Edinburgh, Belfast, Liverpool and Cardiff.

Just 72 hours after an event was organised in Bristol, more than 1,000 people marched from Queen Square to College Green.

One of the signs read “We Reject The Comb-Over Con”

NIA says LeT behind Uri, Handwara attacks

SHAHID WANI;

The National Investigation Agency (NIA)  claimed that Militant attacks at Army installations in Uri and Handwara in Jammu and Kashmir were carried out by Pakistan-based outfit Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT).

hhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiikkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk

A senior NIA official claimed that one of the four Militants involved in the attack on the army camp in Handwara managed to flee.

The Militants had attacked the camp of 30 Rashtriya Rifles camp in Langate in Handwara in October last year. While three attackers were killed by the security forces, one is believed to have escaped, the official said, adding they were looking into it.

Heavily-armed  Militants had stormed the army base in Uri sector in September and killed 18 soldiers.

There is proof indicating the role of LeT behind Uri and Handwara attacks, he said.

Earlier, it was claimed that Pakistan-based terror outfit Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) was behind the attack.

The NIA is looking into both these cases.

The investigation in Uri attack case will gather pace soon as the agency officials earlier could not visit the points of ingress to verify certain leads due to shelling from across the border, the official said.

A team of officials is now likely to visit the area from where the terrorists might have entered and attacked the Uri camp, he said.

Talking about the Handwara incident, NIA officials said they recovered cell phones of Samsung and Huawei companies. These phones worked without SIMs using the latest technology and manipulating its configuration, he claimed.

“The NIA had written to both Samsung and Huawei seeking details of these cell phones including information on shipments. Huawei had informed us that the phone was shipped to Pakistan. We are still awaiting a response from Pakistan,” the official said.

There are other documents and proof in possession of the NIA that points towards LeT’s involvement in the attack, he said.

Besides, the cell phones’ Global Positioning System (GPS) sets and wireless system were found from the slain terrorists behind the Handwara attack. The NIA is in the process of getting information from Mauritius and Japan about the companies there which would have made these instruments, the official said.

Investigators have also found a diary from one of the slain Militants and verifying a phone number, believed to be of one of their associates, mentioned there. They also claimed misuse of social networking sites Facebook and Twitter by the Militants for communication, he said.

 

Night temperatures plunge in Kashmir

Leh recorded a minimum temperature of minus 16.8 degrees Celsius last night – a drop of over eight degrees from the previous night’s minus 8.3 degrees Celsius, an official of the Meteorological Department here said.

He said the town was the coldest recorded place in the state. The nearby Kargil town registered a low of minus 15 degrees Celsius, the official said.

He said the famous health resort of Pahalgam in south Kashmir, which serves as a base camp for the annual Amarnath Yatra, registered a low of minus 13.8 degrees Celsius, down from the previous night’s minus 12.4 degrees Celsius, the official said.

He said not only was the resort was the coldest recorded place in the Valley, it was the coldest night of the season there.

The minimum temperature at the resort was also a three-year low for the month of January.

The famous ski-resort of Gulmarg, the star attraction for tourists visiting the Valley during winter, recorded a low of minus 11.8 degrees Celsius, against minus 12 degrees Celsius yesterday, he said.

He said Srinagar ? the summer capital of Jammu and Kashmir ? recorded the minimum of minus 0.9 degrees Celsius ? an increase of over two degrees from the previous night’s minus 3.3 degrees Celsius.

The official said Qazigund ? the gateway town to Kashmir Valley ? in south registered a low of minus 2.8 degrees Celsius, while Kokernag recorded a low of minus 3.3 degrees Celsius.

The mercury in Kupwara town in north Kashmir dipped nearly three degrees from the yesterday’s low of minus 1.8 degrees Celsius to settle at a low of minus 4.7 degrees Celsius, he said.

Kashmir is currently in the grip of ‘Chillai-Kalan’ – considered the harshest period of winter – when the chances of snowfall are highest and the temperature drops considerably.

Chillai-Kalan, which, began on December 21 last year, ends on January 31, but the cold wave continues even after that.

The 40-day period is followed by a 20-day ‘Chillai-Khurd’ (small cold) and 10-day ‘Chillai-Bachha’ (baby cold).

The MeT Office has forecast light rains or snow at few places in the state over the next 24 hours.

It said the weather would stay mainly dry till January 21, after which there is possibility another spell of wet weather.

“From 22 to 26 evening or 27 morning, there is possibility of another spell of rains or snow as the region will be hit by a fresh Western Disturbance on January 22,” the official said.

Donald Trump begins repeal of Obamacare in golden Oval Office

President Donald Trump has wasted no time in beginning work from the Oval Office, and has signed his first executive order aimed at “minimising the economic burden” of Obamacare.

The order allows government agencies to delay the implementation of any parts of the Affordable Care Act – Barack Obama’s signature healthcare law – which could put a “fiscal burden” on families, states or healthcare providers.

It is the first step in Mr Trump’s plans to “promptly repeal” and replace Obamacare, a key promise made during his election campaign, but Republicans in Congress are yet to propose a replacement for the insurance programme.

Moments after signing the executive order, the President’s new defence secretary and homeland security secretary were sworn in by Vice President Mike Pence.

They are the first cabinet members to clear the hurdle of being approved by the Senate, which will begin confirming his other nominees on Monday.

In a statement, the President said: “I call on members of the Senate to fulfill their constitutional obligations and swiftly confirm the remainder of my highly qualified cabinet nominees, so that we can get to work on behalf of the American people without delay.”

During his election, Mr Trump had campaigned on a detailed 18-point plan of the things he would do on his first day in office.

But since then, he seems to have distanced himself from taking such a rapid-fire approach to implementing policies – especially when it comes to complicated issues which may involve negotiations with Congress or foreign leaders.

Within minutes of his inauguration as US President, Mr Trump’s administration announced plans to develop a “state-of-the-art” missile defence system to protect the US against attacks from Iran and North Korea.

The policy announcement comes a day after reports that Pyongyang was readying a test of an upgraded intercontinental ballistic missile prototype.

According to South Korean news agency Yonhap, news of the test appeared to have been intentionally leaked by North Korea to send a “strategic message” to Mr Trump.

President Donald Trump delivers his inaugural address US-TRUMP-POLITICS

In further measures, Mr Trump’s administration said it would reverse cutbacks to the defence budget and “submit a new budget to Congress outlining a plan to rebuild our military”.

It added: “We will provide our military leaders with the means to plan for our future defence needs.”

As Mr Trump’s pledges were published on the newly revamped White House website, references to climate change were deleted and replaced with the President’s “America First Energy Plan”.

The policy outlines intentions to scrap the “harmful and unnecessary” Climate Action Plan and Waters of the US rule brought in by Barack Obama.

It adds that the US has been “held back by burdensome regulations on our energy industry”.

Also detailed are plans to cut tax rates for workers and businesses, as well as a withdrawal from the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade agreement

Government informs all departments to process pension cases online

Shahid Wani

Well, announcement of demonetisation has indeed brought about a lot of changes in India as India is turning in to an all – new digital India. Even pensions are not far from this so – called digitalisation. In fact the Centre has ordered that all the departments from now on will be required to process pension cases online.

Such a system of having pension cases processed online has been started so that delays of any sort can be checked apart from making the process of pension related cases transparent. This step would further assist in having granted post – retirement benefits to the employees among other things. To ensure that things turn for the better, the Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances & Pensions has given strict orders that pension cases have to be processed electronically only.

The Ministry has instructed all the Central Government Department’s Secretaries that they follow the instructions so that all the pensioners get their due on time & cases are not delayed for whatsoever reason.

Bhavishya tracking system

In addition to the above stated things, the order said that there would be online Pension Sanction & Payment Tracking System so that the Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances & Pensions can keep a track of the pension cases.

This pension sanction & payment tracking system is known as Bhavishya; with the help of which not only the administrative authorities but also the retiring employees will be in a position to track the progress of the pension cases. Another aspect of this tracking system is that an individual would be able to monitor the cases online that too at every stage.

Process pension cases online with Bhavishya

Apart from the above stated aspects, the Heads of Offices are directed about the fact that they process the pension cases online only through Bhavishya. And whenever required, the concerned authorities will step in to help the retiring employees to submit the application form online.

In this manner every individual that is the retiring employee will be able to have the right to be up – to – date with their application form’s status. Earlier, the Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation or EPFO, which happens to be the retiring fund, had made it very clear that Aadhaar number has to be provided in order to receive benefits as per the EPF Pension Scheme.

If you are looking for pension, then it would be a great idea that you be ready with your Aadhar card. In case you do not have an Aadhaar card then apply for an Aadhaar card online at the earliest. Also keep it in mind that the digital life certificate can be submitted till the 28th of February, 2017.

And as far as these filing of pension cases are concerned then you would be required to file them online as this rule has been implemented right from the 1st of January, 2017. Readers, keep it in mind that pension cases are to be processed online through Bhavishya system only

Miscreants touched 32 schools during recent Kashmir unrest: Government

Miscreants torched 32 school buildings during the past 5 months of disturbances in Kashmir Valley, Jammu and Kashmir’s Minister of State for Education Priya Sethi said today. Among the schools torched, 14 were fully damaged and 18 partially, she said, noting police have registered cases and investigations are on. She said 47 miscreants have been arrested in connection with the torching of the schools.
Replying to a clubbed question by NC members Qaiser Jamshed Lone and Dr Bashir Ahmad Veeri in the Legislative Council, Sethi said in view of these incidents in the Valley, the divisional administration took various measures for protection of schools.
These included deployment of watch and ward staff, ‘numberdars’ (revenue officials), chowkidars, involving local Auqaf Committee and local imams and respectable persons of the society, besides regular monitoring, fire safety measures, better lighting.
Asserting that elaborate steps were taken to prevent these incidents, she said the schools were categorised into three types — normal, sensitive and hypersensitive.
She said all sensitive and hyper sensitive schools were provided round-the-clock watch and ward staff by redeploying existing manpower comprising chowkidars, orderlies. A plan was put in place by the security agencies which included patrolling around schools categorised as sensitive and hypersensitive.
She said all schools were directed to adopt fire safety measures.
Legislators Ghulam Nabi Monga raised supplementary queries to the main question.
