Amritsar, August 18

Passengers of the city travelling to Bihar, West Bengal and Assam are a harried lot as flood in northern parts of the country has left the rail services disrupted.

Trains from Amritsar to Darbhanga and Saharsa in Bihar are running way behind the schedule. A passenger, Shiv Ram Yadav, said, “My family in Bihar has been affecting by floods. I am trying to return to my native village but the cancellation and delay of trains have been hampering the journey.”

A shawl trader, Harsh Mehra, said floods would mar their trade prospects.

Tribune News Service New Delhi, August 18 The Supreme Court on Friday asked senior Congress leader and former Finance Minister P Chidambaram’s son Karti Chidambaram to appear before the CBI on August 23 for interrogation in connection with a corruption case. A Bench headed by Chief Justice of India JS Khehar, however, allowed him to have by his side a lawyer who would not be within hearing distance during his interrogation by the CBI. The CBI will interrogate Karti in connection with alleged irregularities in the Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) clearance to INX Media for receiving overseas funds when his father was the Union Finance Minister in 2007.

Kerala: Safe internet training for students 19.8.2017
Kochi: At a time when there is concern that teenagers are getting hooked to online surfing and it is on the rise, the Kerala Police has devised a programme under which as many as 20,000 students from 3,000 schools will be trained about the dangers of cyberspace and the safe practices to be followed. "The threat of cyber space has taken on new dimensions. For instance there is a trend of children sharing private photos on social media platforms, especially lovers. However, they do not realise that once uploaded on digital media, the materials are public. There are even cases when children got into the drug trade through internet communications. Hence we want to create awareness among the future generations about the dangers," said Manoj Abraham, Inspector General, Thiruvananth- apuram Range. The aim is to teach students about the safe use of the internet – social media dangers, responsible games, password protection and online shopping among others. Training has begun under the Kids Glow ...
