Realising the kind of damage it could cause to commuters, he instantly plunged into action and hammered the rod down. The rod had been neglected by many, but Revanna refused to turn a blind eye.

The post went viral and received immense likes. DCP Law and Order Hanumatharaya, DCP Crime and Traffic Uma Prashanth, Traffic ACP Manjunath and others were present. #mangalore #kudla #news #instamangalore

More than 335 have been killed in Syrian rebel enclave, with 13 civilians dying in latest strikes Warplanes have pounded the last rebel enclave near the Syrian capital for a fifth straight day, as the UN pleaded for a truce to halt to one of the fiercest air assaults of the seven-year civil war and prevent a “massacre’. More than 335 people have been killed in the besieged rebel-held enclave of eastern Ghouta on the outskirts of Damascus since Sunday, with 13 more civilians killed in the latest strikes on Thursday, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. My staff are trying to save lives in the rubble of Ghouta. Who will help us? Aid agencies including the Red Cross and World Food Programme are calling for an urgent ceasefire to allow them to reach eastern Ghouta, where more than 1,200 people have been injured, a toll people on the ground say has been exacerbated by attacks on hospitals, clinics and ambulances. The calls were echoed by the UN secretary general, António Guterres, who demanded an immediate suspension of “all war activities” in the rebel-held Damascus suburb, which he described as a “hell on earth”. #mangalore #news #syria #bombing #war #needpeace

Samsung Galaxy S9 The star of Unpacked 2018 and perhaps the highlight of MWC 2018 is expected to be the Galaxy S9.

Hubballi: Some advocates, writers and activists have raised questions on the legal sanctity of the “No Helmet, No Petrol” rule Hubballi-Dharwad police wants to implement starting February 22. The rule, says Uma Mahesh Vaidya, a writer on legal issues, is in violation of Article 19(1)(g) of the Constitution which allows one to practice any legal profession, trade or business. “However, one cannot cross the limit of doing others’ duties, who is police in this case. Of course one or two petrol bunk owners can voluntarily deny fuel in the interest of bike riders. If all bunks adopt this rule, it becomes an indication that they are pressurized by some external agencies to do a job which is not related to their business. If one approaches the district consumer forum, complaining of denial of service, then petrol bunks will definitely be penalized,” Uma opines. Rajendra Haripura, an advocate at District Session Court in Dharwad, points out that the police initiative is nowhere mentioned in any Act or Rule. “If they want to make it legal, they have to submit a proposal to the government to amend Section 129 of The Motor Vehicles Act, 1988 and Section 230 of The Karnataka Motor Vehicles Rules, 1989. As the Act is central, it’s a little difficult to make amendment and not possible to implement in the near future. These Sections assert wearing of protective headgear, but no Section of any Act or Rule make helmet compulsory to get petrol,” he asserts. Mohan Patil, another advocate, feels that police should review their decision with respect to the legal aspects before implementing the rule. “Otherwise, it just looks like they are trying to transfer their responsibility on others. They should study judgments of the Supreme Court and high courts, which have asserted that it’s the duty of traffic police and police authorities to ensure proper enforcement of the helmet rule. Hence, petrol bunks may get stuck in legal clutches if they deny petrol to those not wearing helmet,” he says. “Yes, it does not have any legal sanctity, but has only socially concern. We have not ordered petrol bunks legally, but requested them to be a part of the social concern and they have agreed to
￼ NEWS about 13-digit mobile number in India is fake : department of telecom 2018-02-20 INDIA 2 ￼ If you have been reading reports that the Centre is planning to bring in 13-digit mobile numbers, please ignore them. The department of telecommunications (DoT) on Wednesday said there was no such proposal, panning all the confusion doing the rounds on news websites and social media. The DoT has ordered all telecom service providers in the country to start issuing 13-digit mobile numbers to SIM-based M2M devices, which it said will co-exist with 10-digit mobile numbers scheme. It rubbished reports that claimed that normal retail mobile numbers would also be shifted to 13-digit mobile numbers. The 10-digit mobile numbers scheme will stay for retail mobile numbers. DOT (dept of telecom ) on Wednesday said there was no such proposal, panning all the confusion doing the rounds on news websites and social media. The reports had claimed that DoT had issued a directive to all the telecom operators, asking them to start issuing 13-digit mobile numbers to customers, which is not the case. Indian telecom service providers offer M2M services as part of their enterprise offerings catering to various industries. So, far they have been using the 10-digit mobile numbers scheme for issuing M2M connections. The 10-digit mobile numbers scheme will be used for issuing mobile connections for retail consumers for regular voice and data services. In India, telecom operators like Bharti Airtel, Vodafone, RCom, and BSNL offer M2M services to their enterprise customers. For instance, Airtel's M2M offerings include Smart Metering, Asset Tracking Solutions, Equipment Monitoring Solutions and Traffic Management Solution. The undersigned is directed to convey the approval of competent authority that 13-digit numbering scheme has been approved for SIM-based M2M devices which will co-exist with existing 10-digit mobile numbering schemes, the Department of Telecommunications said in a letter.
