Govt employee accused of blackmailing colleague 29.4.2017 deccanherald.com
A group 'D' employee of the Forest Department is accused of blackmailing and extorting money from a woman stenographer employed with the Health and Family Welfare Department.

The woman, in a complaint to the Vidhana Soudha police, said P Krishna (52), the Forest Department employee, and her former hostel mate, Sumalatha Devan (27), had been torturing her since 2013.
Krishna knew that Sumalatha had once stayed with the woman. He persuaded her to take the victim's nude pictures.

Krishna showed the pictures to the victim and started blackmailing her. He asked her to have sex with his friends or else he would leak the nude pictures online. But she refused to accede to the demand. He, however, succeeded in extorting cash and a gold chain from her. The woman said Krishna often abused her and threatened to kill her if she told her family about it. Acting on the complaint, police arrested Krishna but he was released on bail. Sumalatha is absconding.

Second round of polio immunisation drive across state today 29.4.2017 deccanherald.com
The second round of polio immunisation will take place from April 30 (Sunday) across the state. As many as 32,617 booths have been set up to immunise children of up to five years of age. The first round of Pulse Polio National Immunisation took place from April 2 with a target of around 73.39 lakh. Total coverage after house-to-house activity was 74.23 lakh. According to a senior official with the department of health and family welfare, the increase in numbers is because of the presence of children from neighbouring states during the drive within Karnataka besides vaccinations on those travelling by trains. While the first round would provide immunisation against the disease, the second round of immunisation would act as a booster dose. Hence, all children who were vaccinated in the first round would be immunised again. A total of 51,732 teams comprising 1.03 lakh vaccinators would be part of the drive. In urban areas, the first day would see vaccination at designated centres or booths. This would be ...

As mercury rises, gastroenteritis cases go up in Bengaluru 28.4.2017 Deccan Herald - News
Hospitals across the city have started seeing a spurt in the number of gastroenteritis cases. It is mostly from the pockets where the urban poor reside, explain doctors. On average, hospitals are seeing 15-20 cases in their out-patient departments. City doctors warn that hygiene be given prime importance while consuming food this season as the risk of gastroenteritis (stomach flu) is high. Soaring temperatures have led to an increase in the number of cases. While the soaring temperatures push people to drink a good amount of water, consumption of pure water is important, says doctors. Dr Ansar Ahmed, medical superintendent, Epidemic Diseases Hospital (Isolation Hospital), said that the hospital has seen 160 cases of acute gastroenteritis in April alone. "While there is no big epidemic, cases are being reported in small numbers. There are about seven to 10 cases in a given area," said Dr Ahmed, adding that gastroenteritis peaks during the summer. Most patients who are being attended to in the hospital ...
