    Muttaiah Nadar, a multi-millionaire, had fallen prey to a gang, which intoxicated him on a train from Mumbai to the state. However, Aadhaar became the 'foundation' on which he was reunited with his family.

    On the day that the Donald Trump administration unveiled its first national security strategy that identified India as "a leading global power and stronger strategic and defence partner" and described China as a "rival", Beijing had a quiet announcement of its own.

  • aspect_ratio PM Modi's Office Urges Use Of Indian Products After Rails Controversy(Read more)expand_more

    Prime Minister Narendra Modi's office has asked all government departments to prioritise the use of local products in state projects after domestic companies objected to a global tender by the railways ministry seeking tonnes of steel rails.

    The steel and rail ministries have been at loggerheads over the state-run network's decision to buy rails from overseas, despite assurances of supply from local companies Steel Authority of India Ltd (SAIL) and Jindal Steel and Power.

    The steel ministry says the tender goes against the "Make in India" manufacturing push championed by PM Modi, who is under pressure to create jobs for millions of Indians before the next general election in 2019.

    "It is very disturbing that the broad message has not been appreciated by various departments," Nripendra Misra, principal secretary to PM Modi, said in a letter to the heads of various departments.

  • aspect_ratio Bengaluru Techie Missing, Had Gone To Meet OLX Buyer, Say Friends(Read more)expand_more

    BENGALURU: A 29-year-old software engineer from Patna has been missing in Bengaluru since Monday. Ajitabh Kumar, who worked at British telecom, had listed his car on online marketplace Olx and left home around 6:30 pm on Monday. His friends suspect he might have got a call from a prospective buyer.

    Mr Kumar hasn't been seen since and his phone is switched off. Friends say he was last active on WhatsApp around 7:10 pm the same day.

    The techie had been staying with his childhood friend Ravi in the Whitefield area ever since he moved to Bengaluru in 2010. "He had got through an executive MBA program at IIM Kolkata, he had to pay around Rs. 5 Lakh by December 20 and we guess that's why he had put up his car for sale, to fund his fee. When he left home he was in casual wear and didn't tell anyone where he was going," said Ravi.

  • aspect_ratio Kulbhushan Jadhav, On Death Row In Pak, Meets Family Across Glass Screen(Read more)expand_more

    Kulbhushan Jadhav, the Indian sentenced to death in Pakistan, met his wife and mother for around 40 minutes across a glass screen, more than a year after he was arrested by the Pakistani army and accused of spying. Pakistan's foreign office tweeted photos of the meeting at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and commented: "We honour our commitments".

    Going by the tweeted photos, Kulbhushan Jadhav could speak to his family only through intercom, with five officials present, and no physical contact allowed.

    Pakistan's foreign office portrayed the brief meeting - coming after months of waiting on the family's visa application - as a grand gesture on the birthday of Muhammad Ali Jinnah. In a few weeks, the top UN court, the International Court of Justice, is to hear India's appeal against Mr Jadhav's death sentence on grounds that he never got an opportunity to defend himself. India has also accused Pakistan of denying Mr Jadhav consular access in violation of the rules under the Vienna Convention.

  • aspect_ratio 'Tighten Cybersecurity': Railway Minister After Alleged Tatkal Ticketing Scam(Read more)expand_more

    NEW DELHI: Isn't it strange that many of us are mostly unable to book confirmed railway tickets under the Tatkal category, but when we dial an agent, it's done, immediately? Well, it has turned out to be a case of cyber fraud. The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has accused a software programmer, one of its own, of being the brain behind an illegal software that subverted the railways reservation system, allowing the agents to book hundreds of Tatkal tickets in a few seconds.

    Railway Minister Piyush Goyal today directed the IRCTC and the Centre for Railway Information Systems (CRIS) to strengthen cybersecurity in the wake of the alleged scam.

    The CBI has arrested its assistant programmer Ajay Garg and his associate Anil Gupta for developing and selling the illegal software to travel agents, agency spokesperson Abhishek Dayal said. The agency has charged 13 others, including members of Garg's family and travel agents, in the alleged scam.

    MUMBAI: One of the first to notice the small fire that turned into an inferno at a popular Mumbai pub at Kamala Mills last night, killing 14, was Sulbha Arora, a doctor. She was at the "1 Above" rooftop restaurant for dinner with friends. "It was the scariest thing I survived," she said in tweets after making it out of the building.

    Dr Arora said she and her friends were just paying the dinner tab and were on their way out when they saw the fire. "It was around 12.15 am. We noticed a small fire in one corner...but within seconds, it spread so rapidly that the entire rooftop was engulfed. No one had time to react," she told NDTV.

    In a few terrifying moments, there was absolute panic and chaos. "Everyone tried to rush towards the entrance...people were running over me...I fell down and felt the roof would collapse over me. Someone came back and helped me up," said Dr Arora.

    Dr Arora and her group realized that it was too late to try and get out through the main exit, almost obscured by a crush of people. So they made their way back into the restaurant and through the kitchen, where the staff showed them through the back entrance.

    "Some were trying to run back into the restaurant to find their friends and family. There was two-way movement. We were fortunate to find the stairs and managed to come out."

    On their way to the kitchen, they saw a group of young women running towards the washroom. Among them was Khushboo Mehta, who was celebrating her birthday today with friends. They were among the 14 who suffocated.
