News / Mid-Day/ News  
Representational Image A 50-year-old man has been sentenced to four consecutive terms of life imprisonment by a court here for raping and impregnating his teenage daughter two years ago. Mahila Court Judge Balakrishnan on Tuesday awarded the punishment, which would effectively mean the man will be in prison for lifetime. The judge ordered Subramaniam of Pattukottai in the district to undergo the four life imprisonments consecutively. According to the prosecution, Subramaniam had raped his daughter after gagging and tying her limbs at their house when her mother was away in 2016. He had threatened her not to inform anyone about the incident and repeatedly assaulted the 17-year old girl sexually several times later, it said. In March 2017, the girl developed severe stomach pain and was found to be pregnant. She gave birth to a baby girl a few weeks later.

Ajay Banerjee  Tribune News Service New Delhi, April 25  Even as China takes forward its military expansion into the island territories of western Pacific Ocean, India, US and Japan will conduct their annual Malabar exercise at sea off the coast of Guam, a US-controlled military base in the western Pacific Ocean. Chinese aircraft carrier Liaoning and its associated fleet have been practising in the same area recently even as Vanuatu, another island close to Australia, is being eyed by Beijing for a possible Naval base. Beijing’s moves could lead to a rejig of plans of the newly formed quadrilateral—US, India, Japan and Australia.  The nine-day Malabar exercise will commence on June 7. India will set sail its three warships — INS Shayadri, INS Kamorta and a fleet tanker—in the third week of May. These will be joined in by long range maritime recognisance aircraft, the Boeing P8-I. The US is expected to have one of its carriers in the exercise...

Never asked government to link Aadhaar to SIM, says Supreme Court

4 hours ago  
News / Mid-Day/ National  
The Supreme Court yesterday raised questions over the government's decision ordering mandatory seeding of mobile numbers with Aadhaar and said its earlier order on mandatory authentication of the users was used as a "tool". A five-judge Constitution bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra, hearing a clutch of petitions challenging Aadhaar and its enabling 2016 law, said its order on a PIL filed by Lokniti Foundation had said that mobile users needed to be verified in the interest of national security. "In fact there was no such direction from the Supreme Court, but you took it and used it as a tool to make Aadhaar mandatory for mobile users," said the bench. Senior advocate Rakesh Dwivedi, appearing for the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI), said the direction to seed mobile with Aadhaar was taken in pursuance of TRAI's recommendation. Besides, the government was entitled and had legitimate state interest to ensure that a SIM card is given to only those who applied, ..

Shubhadeep Choudhury Tribune News Service  Kolkata, April 25  The CPM-led Left Front of West Bengal, which ran into internal problems when the CPM and the Congress had an electoral understanding during the 2016 Assembly elections, may face similar issues on the occasion of the panchayat polls in the state. Fresh from the Hyderabad party congress of the CPM where electoral collaboration with the Congress party got the thumbs up from members, the soon to be held panchayat poll in West Bengal is being seen by a strong section of the CPM as a natural testing ground for the experiment. During the Assembly elections when the CPM and the Congress had reached an understanding, the former had been accused of sacrificing its old allies with the RSP being the worst victim of this phenomenon. In their bid to defeat the Trinamool Congress, the CPM supported the Congress candidate at Alipurduar ignoring the RSP nominee from the seat whose name was announced by none other than LF chai..

Mumbai Metro chief Ashwini Bhide's tweet about noise at Wankhede stirs up storm

5 hours ago  
News / Mid-Day/ National  
MMRC chief Ashwini Bhide Mumbai Metro chief Ashwini Bhide's tweet has made a big noise on Twitter, after she complained about the din from T20 matches at Wankhede stadium. It didn't take long for Twitterati to hit back at her with jokes about how Metro III's construction work had been making a far worse racket. MMRC chief Ashwini Bhide's deleted tweet Bhide, managing director of the Mumbai Metro Rail Corporation (MMRC), tweeted on Tuesday, questioning why people did not protest against the noise from the ongoing T20 matches at Wankhede. For months, citizens have railed against the loud drilling along the Metro 3 alignment, which is to be Mumbai's first underground Metro corridor. The route has also met the ire of citizens because it will result in over 3,000 trees being cut in Aarey Colony — the green lungs of the city. Bhide's concerns about the T20 noise rang hollow, and soon enough, citizens laughed it off with jokes about the noise from Metro 3's construction work. Some p..

Donald Trump (right) clears dandruff off Emmanuel Macron's jacket in the Oval Office prior to a meeting at the White House. Pic/AFP US President Donald Trump and French counterpart Emmanuel Macron called for a "new" deal with Iran, looking beyond disagreements over a landmark nuclear accord that still hangs in the balance. Trump laid transatlantic divisions bare during a visit by the French president, pillorying a three-year old agreement designed to curb Iran's nuclear programme. The US leader described the deal as "insane" and "ridiculous," despite European pleas for him not to walk away. Instead, Trump eyed a broader "deal" that would also limit Iran's ballistic missile programme and support for militant groups across the Middle East. "I think we will have a great shot at doing a much bigger, maybe, deal," said Trump, stressing that any new accord would have to be built on "solid foundations."

Sarika Sharma Tribune News Service Chandigarh, April 25 When it next rains in Lahore, Madeeha Gauhar would not be there to wonder if it is raining in Amritsar too. One of Pakistan’s topmost theatre directors and an untiring advocate of peace among India and Pakistan, she died on Wednesday morning. She had been battling cancer for four years. She was 62.

Shiv Kumar Tribune News Service Mumbai, April 25 Nearly 71 years after they were resettled in various parts of Maharashtra, Partition refugees from West Pakistan will finally get to own their homes.
