    Youngest Pakistani who scaled K2, fellow climber rescued

    The military airlifted two Pakistani climbers, including the man who became the youngest to scale one of the world's highest mountains, to safety on Thursday, two days after the pair went missing during an expedition to another dangerous peak.
    The two - Shehroze Kashif, who last year scaled K2 at age 19, and Fazal Ali - went missing on Tuesday after scaling Nanga Parbat, known as “Killer Mountain” because of its dangerous conditions.
    The military launched a search for them, following a plea from Kashif's family. On Thursday, an army statement said the climbers were found stranded on Nanga Parbat and were taken to Gilgit, a town in the northwest.
    A photo posted on Twitter by Kashif's family later shows the smiling climbers sitting in an army helicopter.
    Earlier, Karrar Haidri, the secretary of the Alpine Club of Pakistan, told The Associated Press that both climbers were spotted on Wednesday and were “descending on their own" as bad weather hampered the military's rescue mission.
    Apart from dispatching helicopters, the military also sent a ground search team, it said.
    In a statement Thursday, Kashif's father confirmed that his son and fellow climber were safe and thanked army officials. Kashif Salman told the AP that the military told him the pair were successfully rescued.
    “I have good news," he said earlier on Thursday. “My son and Fazal Ali today safely reached a place on Nanga Parbat from where now they can be air-lifted." He said authorities had asked the climbers to wait for the helicopters to reach there.
    Every year, hundreds of local and foreign climbers try to scale K2, Nanga Parbat and the world's other highest mountains located in the north.
    Kashif in 2021 also scaled Mount Everest, which is 237 metres (777 feet) taller than K2.
    Last year, Kashif told the AP that nothing is impossible if we strive to get something. “My message to the world is challenge your limit, cross it and get what you desire," he said.

    Gold smuggling case: Union Minister Shobha Karandlaje seeks Kerala CM's resignation

    Union Minister Shobha Karandlaje on Thursday attacked the CPI(M)-led government in Kerala over the controversial gold smuggling case and demanded Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan to step down from his post and face investigation. Addressing the media here, Karandlaje said it was for the first time in history that allegations have been raised against a chief minister and his family in a gold smuggling case."For a comprehensive probe to be carried out in the gold smuggling case, the Chief Minister has to resign," she stressed. The Minister of State for Agriculture and Farmers' Welfare further said that the 164 statement of key accused Swapna Suresh, indicates the role of the CM and his family in the case. Hence, the probe must also extend to his family members. "The Chief Minister tried to misuse the UAE Consulate and diplomatic relations," Karandlaje said, adding that the Vijayan's involvement was evident from the role of his former Principal Secretary M Sivasankar. Triggering a political turmoil in the state, Suresh had recently given statements against the CM, his family and some other top bureaucrats.

    Mamata Banerjee trampling on religious sentiments of Hindu Bengalis by protecting Mahua Moitra: BJP

    Continuing its attack on West Bengal Chief Minister over Mahua Moitra's insulting comment on Goddess Kaali, the BJP on Thursday said that by protecting her, Mamata Banerjee was 'trampling on the religious sentiments of Hindu Bengalis'. The BJP questioned the chief minister's silence and inaction against Moitra. While responding to a question on a controversial film poster, Moitra said that for her "Goddess Kaali is a meat-eating and alcohol accepting goddess". West Bengal BJP co-incharge Amit Malviya said, "Mamata Banerjee's eloquent silence and inaction on Mahua Moitra's obnoxious comment on Maa Kaali is a tacit endorsement. If not, she should have suspended the TMC MP and allowed WB police to act. By protecting her, she is trampling on the religious sentiments of Hindu Bengalis." On Wednesday, the BJP had said that Banerjee's politics, steeped in brazen minority appeasement, is the reason why her MP made that outright insulting comment on Goddess Kaali.
