Tribune News Service Hisar, April 17 Farm labourer Ram Swaroop (55) and his wife Prem Vati (53) drowned in a water tank while trying to save their four-year-old grandson Yogesh in Mehjad village of the Hansi subdivision on Tuesday.

They had constructed a water tank to irrigate the land, which included a seven-acre horticulture farm.

Muktsar farmer makes own fire tender 17.4.2018 The Tribune
Tribune News Service Muktsar, April 16 After wheat stubble on nearly 150 acres was burnt in an accidental fire at Kauni village in the Gidderbaha subdivision last year, Pal Singh Brar, a young farmer from the village, has prepared a parallel fire tender by using a tractor, water tank and a spray pump. “I have not bought anything to make this fire tender having a capacity of 5,000-litre water. Nowadays almost every farmer has these equipment that can be used as a fire tender by little modifications and it is quite useful,” Brar said. “Now, whenever any fire incident will occur in and around the village, we will rush this fire tender to the spot. Our village is about 25-km away from Gidderbaha and 17 km from Muktsar. Thus in case of any emergency, fire tender takes time of nearly 30 minutes to reach this place. Now we are hopeful to timely control the situation with our own sources,” he added. Speaking further, he said, “It is cheap and the best method to minimise the risk of fire during the harvesting ...
