    J-K: Srinagar police issue advisory to journalists ahead of Indo-Pak cricket match

    Ahead of the India-Pakistan Asia Cup cricket clash, Jammu and Kashmir Police on Sunday "advised" journalists to not fall prey to sensationalism and verify from authorities sensitive news or videos that have potential of creating a law and order situation.

    "Sporting events are a test of dedication, sportsmanship and work ethics of the participating teams. And such events are enjoyed by millions across the world," Srinagar police said in an advisory issued here.

    Due to the attention such events garner, it has been noticed that some journalists have in the past, without verifying from authorities, posted old sensational videos/pictures during and after sporting events between India and its neighbour, the advisory read.

    The police requested that the media fraternity should not fall prey to such sensationalism and should please verify all such sensitive news/videos/pictures, which have potential of creating law and order situations, from the authorities first.

    "In order to curb the menace of fake news that can lead to law and order , the social media cell of Srinagar Police will be monitoring all social media platforms," it said.

    Twin tower demolition: Residents relieved as officials declare no damage to other buildings

    As a series of controlled explosions reduced the 100-metre tall twin towers in Noida to a pile of rubble, residents heaved a sigh of relief after officials declared that there appeared to be no damage to the buildings adjacent to the structures that were brought down.

    Shortly after the court-mandated demolition of the buildings, officials declared that

    there appeared to be no damage to the buildings adjacent to the Supertech twin towers but said a more detailed audit is underway.

    The structures - taller than Delhi's iconic Qutub Minar (73 metres) - were brought to the ground in seconds literally like a house of cards by the 'waterfall implosion' technique, in a breathtaking spectacle of modern day engineering.
    Sarita, a resident of Emerald court, shifted to Delhi temporarily on Saturday night ahead of the demolition.

    "I moved to Delhi for the demolition and we will return on Sunday night. Prima facie, it appears that there's no damage to our buildings. We have been told that the authorities will check the area first and then, let us in," Sarita said. 

    Ekta Gupta, another resident of the society, said they have been informed by the authorities that there was no damage to their buildings following which they are planning return to their society after 6.30 pm. 

    "I am relieved to know that there is no damage to our building. We will be going back in the evening after 6.30 pm on Sunday. We were provided accommodation at a nearby society," she said.

    Himanta reminds Kejriwal of Delhi's London makeover promise

    In a fresh salvo at his Delhi counterpart Arvind Kejriwal, Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Sunday claimed that the AAP chief was "comparing the national capital with smaller cities" after failing to fulfil his promise of giving the place a London- or Paris-like makeover.
    Sarma, taking a swipe at Kejriwal, also pointed out that Delhi CM has "expressed his desire to visit Assam" only now, not when the state going through crises such as floods.
    The two chief ministers had been engaging in verbal duels on Twitter over the last few days, each of them asking the other to visit their state and witness the development work undertaken there.
    The spat started after Kejriwal, in response to a news item that claimed the Assam government closed 34 schools due to poor results, said shutting down the institutes was no solution.

    Ukraine, Russia trade more blame on threats to nuclear plant

    Fears about the potential for a radiation leak at Europe's largest nuclear power plant persisted Saturday as both sides traded blame for nearby shelling. Ukraine said Russian forces fired on areas just across the river from the plant and Russia claimed Ukrainian shells hit a building where nuclear fuel is stored. Authorities were distributing iodine tablets to residents who live near the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant in case of radiation exposure, which can cause health problems. Much of the concern centers on the cooling systems for the plant's nuclear reactors. The systems require power to run, and the plant was temporarily knocked offline Thursday because of what officials said was fire damage to a transmission line. A cooling system failure could cause a nuclear meltdown.
