Chinese troops entered 1 km into Uttarakhand's Barahoti sector in July, said officials

About 15-20 Chinese troops entered 1 km into Uttarakhand's Barahoti sector this month, officials said on Monday. The transgressions came in the middle of a prolonged military standoff between the two nations in the Sikkim sector.
The first transgression took place on July 15 and the second one on July 25, only a day before National Security Adviser Ajit Doval left for Beijing to be part of a BRICS meeting.
In the second incident, Chinese troops also threatened shepherds and asked them to leave along with their animals from the area, sources said.
However, Indian security officials downplayed the incidents, saying they were "routine" happenings. Chinese troops left Barahoti soon after the Indian side protested, sources said.
Since mid-June, a military standoff continues between Indian and Chinese troops in Doklam — a disputed tri-junction where the borders of India (Sikkim), China and Bhutan converge.
After PLA troops entered the plateau in Bhutanese territory to build a…

As rivers swell in West Bengal more cows and narcotics being smuggled into Bangladesh

The flood situation in West Bengal has become worse after the Damodar Valley Corporation released more water from its dams. Inclement weather and flood have badly affected people in as many as 12 districts of West Bengal, but in Malda and Murshidabad districts — which share more than 300km of the international border with Bangladesh — the deluge has come as a boon for cattle smugglers. Of the 300 km of the border the two districts share, around 100km is covered by rivers, including the Ganga and the Padma, which are overflowing at this time, and cattle smugglers are taking full advantage and smuggling more cows into Bangladesh through the porous border. Because of heavy rainfall upstream and release of water from dams in the western districts, the level of water in the two rivers has risen alarmingly.

No More Blankets On AC Coaches After CAG Heat - They Were Not Washed As Per Guidelines

The next time you take the AC coach on the train, don’t be surprised if the familiar checkered blankets and hospital-white sheets are missing. Indian Railways will stop providing blankets in AC coaches after a Comptroller Auditor General (CAG) report criticised it on grounds of hygiene. According to a report in Business Standard, AC coaches will administer the temperature at 24-degree celsius, as opposed to the current 19-degree celsius. Sources from the railways added that it would be more cost-effective if the blankets are removed as it takes Rs 55 to clean the bedroll while passengers are charged Rs 22 for its usage. According to the CAG report, the bedrolls were not being washed every one to two months as stipulated by guidelines. This was because the railways could not handle the load of linens and resorted to outsourcing the cleaning of the bedrolls. Also, there was the lack of quality control for the washing. The report had said “A robust system for procurement, washing and di…
