High tide expected in Mumbai at noon, likely to aggravate waterlogging woes 3.7.2019
Mumbai: A high tide of about 4.69 meters is expected to flush gallons of water in Mumbai at noon, increasing the waterlogging problem caused by heavy rainfall in the financial capital.

In a statement here, Pinarayi said cases were registered in Kerala but none of those was related to invoking God's name. "Only those who unleashed violence misusing religion were booked. Such criminals may be going scot-free in BJP- ruled states. But in Kerala, they will face strict action," he said. Earlier, he had made similar remarks outside Kerala.
