  • Experts believe that the soil types in Visakhapatnam are far more suitable for construction than Amaravati, where the soil type is black-cotton.

    The JNU administration had given the names of students union office bearers including its president Aishe Gosh in connection with the vandalism but police have not put her name or that of other students in the accused column of the FIRs.

    A pall of terror and fear prevails in Delhi’s Jawaharlal Nehru University. It was not the same 'safe space', after about a 100-strong mob entered the campus, breaking and hitting everything that came their way. Students described that neither them, their teachers, cars, motorcycles and other property were spared.

    The wave of protests began on Sunday night, soon after videos and photos of the attack began circulating on social media and being shown on television. Apart from demonstrations in front of the old police headquarters in Delhi, protestors gathered at the Gateway of India in Mumbai, Pune, Thiruvananthapuram and elsewhere.

    Mamata Banerjee’s ruling TMC had certainly been on the back foot since BJP won 18 of the 42 Lok Sabha seats in May 2019 and with a 22.25% vote swing in its favour (compared to TMC’s 3.48%). Much of the votes for BJP were against TMC’s perceived shoddy governance. But now, CAA may well be seen as a taster of other disruptive things to come in the state.

    The meeting at the HRD Ministry which went on for over two hours was attended by the JNU registrar, proctor and other admin officials who briefed the ministry officials on the sequence of events that unfolded on the campus and the measures taken to restore normalcy.

    Late M.V. Murugappan's daughter alleged that promoters have gender bias against women getting into family biz.

    Expressing shock at the events at the premier university, Ex-chancellor Karan Singh urged the Home Ministry to get the whole matter impartially probed and apprehend the "masked miscreants who violently attacked university students, including women, and take necessary action against them regardless of their political affiliations".

    The student wing of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) has been identified as the attackers, although they deny it. But those who are familiar with the working of the ABVP in other parts of the country well know its capacity for organised violence.

    "Such violence on university campus is completely against the ethos of this country. No matter what the ideology or bent of mind, students cannot be targeted this way. Strictest punishment has to be meted out to these goons who have dared to enter the University," World Cup winning BJP MP Gambhir tweeted.

    Violence broke out at Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) on Sunday night as masked men armed with sticks and rods attacked students and teachers and damaged property on the campus, prompting the administration to call in police which conducted a flag march. At least 28 people were injured in clashes as chaos reigned on the campus for nearly two hours.

    Soleimani, one of Iran's most popular public figures, was killed in a US drone strike on Friday near Baghdad international airport. He was 62. His assassination drove up tensions between arch-enemies Washington and Tehran, which has vowed "severe revenge".
