California Wildfire: Four people missing in deadly raging blaze, 16 rescued 1.8.2018 DNA: Wide Angle

Four others reported missing in the sprawling fire zone, 160 miles (260 km) north of the state capital Sacramento, remained unaccounted for, said Redding police Sergeant Todd Cogle, who has overseen efforts to find them.

Mumbai Rains: That sinking feeling! 11.7.2018 DNA: Top News
In one of the worst breakdowns the city has seen in the past monsoons, Vasai, Virar and Palghar were cut off from Mumbai by the heavy rains that lashed the region on Tuesday. Road and rail connectivity was cut off by waterlogging, and Vasai and Virar also lost electricity. Meanwhile, the state government announced in the Assembly that the rains have claimed 62 persons in the state since June, and the Supreme Court lashed out at the government for not looking into the issue of solid waste management which it believed was one of the causes of the current waterlogging crisis. "You see," said a bench of Justices M B Lokur and Deepak Gupta, "Delhi is getting buried under mountain loads of garbage and Mumbai is sinking. But yet, the government does not do anything. When the courts intervene, we are attacked for judicial activism."

On a complaint by victim’s father, the police have arrested the accused Raza (20), a resident of Lal Mosque area, and registered a case under Section 308 of the IPC at the Hasanpur Police Station. “The accused barged into victim’s house on Friday when no one was home.
