Cyclone Storm Nisarga

New Delhi, June 5 : The India Meteorological Department on Friday forecast that another low-pressure system could form in the Bay of Bengal by June 10, over three weeks after Cyclone ”Amphan” wreaked havoc in West Bengal.

The development comes on the heels of Cyclone ”Amphan” and ”Nisarga” which made landfalls on the eastern and western coasts on May 20 and June 3, respectively and had killed several people, flattened villages, and destroyed farms. Prior to becoming a Super Cyclone ”Amphan”, a low pressure area had formed in Bay of Bengal on May 13.

Dr Kuldeep Srivastava, the head of IMD”s Regional Weather Forecasting Centre, said that “the formation of low-pressure system in Bay of Bengal on June 10 and its movement towards Madhya Pradesh will bring moisture leaden easterly winds to Delhi-NCR through Uttar Pradesh”.

The IMD scientist said: “In association with this system, thunderstorm, with light rain, accompanied with gusty winds of the speed of 50-60 kmph during evening of June 11 to 13 with peak activity on June 12, would occur over Delhi-NCR, Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand and east Rajasthan.”

Isolated heavy rains are also expected over Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand during this period. Heat wave conditions will not prevail over the places till June 15 due to light rain and cloudiness.

The national capital also witnessed rain on Friday, with IMD predicting that it will only “drizzle at isolated places on June 6 over Delhi NCR. “There will be a rise in maximum temperature by 2-4 degrees during June 8 to June 11, however temperature will reach up to 39-40 degrees.”

Notably, the capital witnessed a brief summer this year. In May, which is usually hot, western disturbance brought rainfall and thunderstorm to the city, and its weather was then affected by the two cyclones. Delhi-NCR, however, witnessed a small spell of heatwave in the third week of May.

Interestingly, the highest temperature in 2019 was recorded on June 10 at 48 degrees Celsius but this time, the weather bureau said that heatwave is not expected till June 15 and even after that, it is unlikely to prevail in the region. This clearly shows the wide contrast between two years.

Minor Girl rape

Hapur (UP), Aug 10 : A six-year-old girl, who was kidnapped and brutally raped in Hapur district on Thursday, remains in a critical condition even as the police continue to hunt for the accused.

The police have released three sketches of the accused on the basis of the statements of the girl’s parents and neighbours.

The girl was kidnapped from outside her home in the Garh Mukhteshwar area, reportedly by a man on a motorcycle.

The police launched a hunt for the girl after her parents lodged a missing complaint.

She was found the next morning, unconscious and soaked in blood, behind bushes not far from her village. The girl was rushed to a specialised hospital in Meerut where the medical examination confirmed rape.

She has already undergone one surgery and doctors say she is stable but not yet out of danger.

The doctors said that the girl was brutalised in a manner that is shockingly similar to the Nirbhaya gang rape case of 2012.

Dr S.K. Garg, the principal of the Meerut Medical College where the girl is admitted, said that she will need treatment for a long duration and more surgeries.

Hapur SP Sanjeev Suman said that they have not yet been able to record the victim’s statement because of her medical condition. He said that six police teams have been formed to arrest the accused.

Meanwhile, protests are being held by the Samajwadi Party and Congress over the incident.

BSF Jawan Tripura

Guwahati/Agartala/Aizawl, Aug 10 : As coronavirus spreads across the northeast, nearly 3,800 central security force personnel have so far infected by the disease in almost all the states in the region, officials said on Sunday.

According to the health officials, the eight northeastern states have so far recorded around 75,000 Covid-19 cases, including 57,714 in Assam.

Of the 3,800 Covid cases among the central armed forces personnel, the highest number are in Nagaland, at 1,226, followed by 823 in Manipur, 738 in Arunachal Pradesh, 360 in Tripura, 350 in Mizoram and 300 in Meghalaya. Many of their family members, including children, were also infected.

A significant chunk of the coronavirus patients among the central forces are from the Border Security Force (BSF). Two BSF jawans in Tripura and one in Meghalaya also succumbed to the highly infectious virus.

Many Indian Army, Indian Air Force, and National Disaster Response Force personnel have also tested positive for coronavirus.

Mizoram Chief Minister Zoramthanga even made a plea to Prime Minister Narendra Modi to ensure suspension of Central Paramilitary Forces (CPMF) movement into the state till August 31, noting that around 70 per cent of Covid-19 positive cases in the state are from the military and paramilitary forces.

A senior BSF official, speaking on the condition of anonymity, told IANS that the BSF men and other central force personnel, after completion of their leave period or when they are transferred, have to move by train or by air for their destinations from different parts of the country. “During transit or in their hazardous duties along the borders or various vulnerable places, the jawans come in contact with the dreaded virus,” the official said.

As the eight northeastern states share over 5,000 km of borders with China, Myanmar Bangladesh, Bhutan and Nepal and some are also battling against terrorism, there is a heavy deployment of armed forces as well as central paramilitary forces in the region.
