Birju Kishore Salla thought it was kinda funny to pin a terrorist threat in Google-translated Urdu in the toilet of Jet Airways flight 9W 339 on October 30, 2017. Salla is one of those rich brats who never grow up and are not interested in the family business, in this case jewellery. A year earlier, he had allegedly smuggled a cockroach into a Jet Airways flight and then complained that he'd found it in his business class meal. But Salla was sentenced to life imprisonment a few days ago, under a tough anti-hijacking law passed in 2016. He was also fined 50 million rupees, which a special court ruled would be paid out as compensation to the crew and passengers who had been put through the ordeal. Each pilot would get a lakh rupees, cabin crew 50,000 rupees each, and each passenger 25,000 rupees for the "misery" inflicted. The 2016 law expands the definition of 'hijacking' to include threats. If the threat is accompanied by an actual attempt to hijack a plane, the law guarantees the deat..

4 hours ago  
News / Mid-Day/ National  
The U-bridge that connects Bandra East to West has been claiming more than three to four lives every year since 2015. As per the traffic department's statistics — accessed by mid-day — in four years, 14 lives have been lost on the stretch, while another 25 have been critically injured at this deadly turn. This year alone, three people died on the same spot. Fortunately, there were no casualties on the stretch in 2018, but from 2015 to 2017, 11 people were killed on the deadly bridge. The Bandra Police claimed that they have written several letters to the Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation (MSRDC) and tried to draw their attention towards the rising casualties, but they've received no response. The only time MSRDC took a few steps to rectify the problem was in 2016. But nothing much has been done since, even as deadly incidents continue to rise on the bridge.

A New Zealand man was jailed for 21 months on Tuesday for distributing gruesome livestream video of the Christchurch mosque attacks that killed 51 Muslim worshippers, local media reported. Philip Arps, 44, was arrested in Christchurch four days after alleged gunman Brenton Tarrant's March 15 rampage at two mosques in the South Island city resulted in the worst massacre in modern New Zealand history. Arps pleaded guilty to two charges of distributing objectionable material for sharing footage that was livestreamed to social media during the attack. Christchurch District Court heard Arps distributed the raw footage to about 30 people and had another version that was modified to include crosshairs and a "kill count", the New Zealand Herald reported. "This was in effect a hate crime against the Muslim community," judge Stephen O'Driscoll said. He said it was "particularly cruel" to share the video in the days after the attacks, when relatives were still waiting to hear news of their loved..
