Not sure if Aadhaar is best model to accord benefits: Supreme Court tells UIDAI 19.4.2018 DNA: Wide Angle
The Supreme Court today said it was not sure whether bringing people "face to face" with authorities through Aadhaar was the best model as the State should reach them to accord the benefits of the welfare schemes. A five-judge Constitution bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra, hearing a clutch of petitions challenging Aadhaar and its enabling 2016 law, was told by the counsel for the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) that the 12 digit national identifier brought the citizens face to face with the service providers for getting the benefits. "We are not sure if that is the best model. The individual should not be a supplicant. The State should go to him and give him benefits," the bench, also comprising Justices AK Sikri, AM Khanwilkar,DY Chandrachud and Ashok Bhushan, said.  The bench observed that the UIDAI says Aadhaar is a means for identification, but the "only caveat to that is that there should be no exclusion". Senior advocate Rakesh Dwivedi, appearing for UIDAI and the Gujarat ...

Authorities release airport CCTV footage of poisoned Russian 19.4.2018 General News
Russian investigators say they have traced back the steps of a poisoned Russian spy's daughter from her Moscow home to the airport before she flew to London, and found no traces of poison. Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were poisoned in Britain with a military-grade nerve agent last month. Yulia Skripal lives in Moscow and was visiting her father, which led British investigators to believe that she might have unwittingly carried the substance with her. Russia's Investigative Committee late Wednesday released online CCTV footage from Moscow's Sheremetyevo airport and said it had traced Skripal's taxi cab ride and her movements around the airport. The investigators said they identified everyone on Skripal's flight and said none of the passengers displayed any symptoms of poisoning.
