Militant killed as Army foils infiltration bid in Jammu and Kashmir’s Gurez sector

One militant died when the army thwarted an attempted infiltration along the Control Line (LOC) in the Gurez sector in the Bandipora district of northern Kashmir.

An army officer said troops guarding the Control Line observed an ultras movement that tried to sneak into the valley on the other side of the border and defied them.

During the exchange of shots, a militant died, the official said.

With the latest operation, the number of militants killed in encounters along the Control Line in Kashmir to the north in the last four days rose to 14.

An army jawan also lost his life at one of the meetings.

A Defense spokesman said on Thursday that multiple attempts by the Pakistani army to push armed infiltration through the Line were thwarted by Naugam sector troops in the Kupwara Machhil district and in the Gurez Bandipora district of Baramulla And Uri, resulting in the death of seven activists.

All four infiltration bids were aided by Pakistani forces they actively supported, including the use of large-caliber artillery cover fire, said the Army’s Northern Command in a statement.

With the killing of six militants in Uri Friday and Saturday Gurez sector, the army thwarted eight attempts to infiltrate in less than two weeks north of Kashmir.

Three attempts have collapsed in the Uri sector alone.

On May 26, the army killed two members of the Pakistani Border Action Team (BAT) who attempted to infiltrate the Uri sector in the Baramulla district to attack the soldiers.

Six other militants died in the same area the next day, when they tried to sneak into the valley on the other side of the border.

This year, the army thwarted 24 infiltration attempts to kill 41 armed intruders along the Line of Control.

Millions In Florida Evacuate As Hurricane Irma Makes Landfall In Cuba

HAVANA:  Millions of residents in Florida were ordered to evacuate as Hurricane Irma roared toward the state on Friday after lashing Cuba, killing 21 people in the eastern Caribbean and leaving catastrophic destruction in its wake.

Irma, one of the most powerful Atlantic storms in a century, was expected to hit Florida on Sunday morning, bringing massive damage from wind and flooding to the fourth-largest state by population.

A historic evacuation, including from areas around Miami, has been made more difficult by clogged highways, gasoline shortages and the challenge of moving older people in the top retirement destination.

The storm could regain strength and hit the Florida Keys as a Category 5 hurricane, the most powerful designation by the National Hurricane Center, with sustained winds of 160 miles per hour (258 km per hour).

The United States has been hit by only three Category 5 storms since 1851, and Irma is far larger than the last one in 1992, Hurricane Andrew, according to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

“We are running out of time. If you are in an evacuation zone, you need to go now. This is a catastrophic storm like our state has never seen,” Governor Rick Scott told reporters, adding the effects would be felt from coast to coast in the state.

A total of 5.6 million people, or 25 percent of the state’s population, were ordered to evacuate Florida, according to the Florida Division of Emergency Management.

US President Donald Trump said in a videotaped statement that Irma was “a storm of absolutely historic destructive potential” and called on people to heed recommendations from government officials and law enforcement. In Palm Beach, Trump’s waterfront Mar-a-Lago estate was ordered evacuated.

Irma, currently a Category 4 storm with winds of 155 mph (250 kph), was about 315 miles (510 km) southeast of Miami, the National Hurricane Center (NHC) said in its latest advisory.

As it moved between the Bahamas and Cuba, Irma was forecast to bring dangerous storm surges of up to 10 feet (3 meters) on parts of Cuba’s northern coast and the central and northwestern Bahamas.

The scenes along Cuba’s north central coast were gradually coming to resemble the horrors of those of other Caribbean islands over the last week as Irma barreled in for a direct hit at Ciego de Avila province around midnight.

Choppy seas, grey skies, sheets of rain, bending palm trees, huge waves crashing over sea walls and downed power lines filled state-run television’s evening news cast.

Meteorologists warned that by Saturday morning scenes of far greater devastation were sure to emerge as Irma worked her way along the northern coast westward through Sancti Spiritus and Villa Clara provinces. where it is forecast to turn northward toward Florida.

The area is home to pristine keys with more than 50 hotels and fine beaches, vital money makers for the cash-strapped government.

Residents in the central province of Camaguey hunkered down on Friday night.”There are really strong gusts of wind. It is pouring off and on, and the lights are out,” Anaida Gonzalez, a retired nurse, said by telephone.

No truth in Narayana Murthy, Nilekani stake sale reports: Infosys CEO Vishal Sikka

Nfosys CEO, Vishal Sikka, denied Friday reports that the founders of technology giant led by Nandan Nilekani and Narayana Murthy looking to sell their stakes.

Murthy has flatly denied and I think we should leave it on this, Sikka told CNBC-TV18 in an exclusive interview. “I have great confidence for them (founders) and I respect them,” he said.

Sikka said the Infosys board works on corporate governance issues raised by the founders. “There was a lot of communication (between the board and the founders),” he said. An advisory panel ensures a high bandwidth connection between the board and the founders for a transformation work that Infosys is trying to do, he added.

In January, Murthy and other founders have expressed concern about IT governance standards in major IT and suggested integrating people based on the value of the company. Dismissal folders given to former chief financial officer Rajiv Bansal and Attorney General David Kennedy were also interviewed.

IT industry knows many declines in recent years due to global and national uncertainties that are pushing companies to reduce their workforce. Jobs are also lost to automation.

In the midst of talks with Infosys planning to hire 10,000 Americans to meet the strictest H-1B visa standards, Sikka said there is no redundancy in India. “The rumors of 10,000 recruits to replace the American Indians are not true,” he said. The company has been working on a plan to hire 10,000 agents for a year, he added.

Infosys is “hiring people” and will continue to be a “job generator”, Sikka said, adding that the US Still represent an excellent opportunity for Infosys – “the need is a new technology, more local people”.

Infosys has not set aside its target for profitability by 2020 but the company may not be able to reach a turnover of $ 20 billion over the next three years, Sikka said. The goal proposed three years ago was ambitious and a means to advance the growth of vehicles, he added.

“We are clear that we should not sacrifice margins to reach the 2020 target,” Sikka said.

Sikka also said that there was nothing new in what Infosys president Praino Rao said the pressure on prices in the corporate market.

About 65 percent of the active population work at 55 percent of income, while 35 percent of the workforce produces 45 percent of income, Sikka said. The transformation part of the business (construction) has a lot of opportunities, he added.

Q: Let me ask you a question about today’s title, which however was rejected by the founders of Infosys, the possibility of the founders of Infosys to get out of business. Do you have information on where it comes from? Was there a conversation he had with the founders of the possibility of all this?

A: I have no idea where it came from. Murthy has flatly denied it and I think we should leave things that way and not extend it further. This is what I also mentioned in my answer and the response of our companies.

The founders are people with unbelievably distinguished success. It’s been three years since he was announced as CEO and what they did is something extraordinary. However, three years later, I have considered it is surprising that they did.

7th Pay Commission report on revised allowances: Here’s what government has saved from delay in wages

The Commission’s seventh report of payment of the revised compensation: central staff is waiting for what the Narendra Modi government has reserved for them. They received their revised wages but the subsidies have created a problem and they have not yet seen a penny of the amount and the wait does not look like it will end quickly. However, it was said that the Cabinet would consider proposals on this issue by the end of June and that it could also receive the same, including the home rental subsidy (HRA), on July 18. However, there is still no official confirmation on this. The numbers involved are huge in every way, including the number of people covered – more than 4.9 million central government employees – the staff waited months to get revised salary increases according to the seventh report on compensation. The delay was massive and figures, in terms of money, are also important. The amount was not distributed and this is what the government has saved – the delay in the allocation of revised emission allowances saved Rs.22bn per month or Rs40bn in cumulative form since 1 January last year. However, the Center will be able to compensate for the delay to some extent by offering a more generous HRA than the one recommended by the previous committee, according to the sources. The Ashok Lavasa Committee on Compensation, the government established to review the SCP recommendations, submitted its report on April 27 this year. He suggested some changes in benefits for employees and for those in specific categories, including defense and railways. It was then placed before the committee in charge of secretaries headed by the cabinet secretary suggested proposals for approval by the Council of Ministers.
Budgeted costs of the Benefit Center remained at Rs 69,222 crore in the year 18, not including defense. It is 7 percent higher than Rs 64.677 crore in year 17.
However, the government is also likely to spend Rs 21.98 billion in additional provisions in the year 18, because of the review to be carried out in July.
The panel suggested an overall increase of 23.55 percent in salaries, allowances and pensions, which include a 63 percent increase in subsidies. 23.6 percent increase in pensions and 6 percent of wages.

Donald Trump to announce new Afghan, South Asia strategy: White House

Donald Trump to announce new Afghan, South Asia strategy: White House

President Donald Trump will announce Monday the new strategy of America in Afghanistan, according to reports that its administration could lead a role for India to end the brutal and costly conflict, the longest war in the United States.

Trump will make its first prime time broadcast to the nation as president at 9:00 am (7:30 am, IST, Tuesday) to unveil its new plan after a long period of deliberation to end a war of nearly 16 years In Afghanistan.

The president “will provide an update on the path to America’s engagement in Afghanistan and South Asia,” said Sarah Sanders, White House Press Secretary.

The address of the Fort Myer military base in Arlington, Virginia, will follow yesterday the confirmation of Defense Secretary Jim Mattis that the administration had decided a new Afghan strategy after a “rigorous” debate.

The announcement of the long-awaited policy comes eight months after Trump became the US president and after criticism from some American lawmakers he was trying to make a decision. Trump’s predecessor, Barack Obama, had announced his Afghan policy in the first 100 days of his office.

Secretary of Defense James Mattis said yesterday that Trump’s policy on war and the whole American approach to South Asia – Washington’s tortured ties with Pakistan and complaints that Islamabad tacitly encourages extremists – had been finalized.

“He wants to be the one who announces it to the American people,” Mattis said. “He now needs the weekend to gather his thoughts on how he will explain it to the American people.” On Friday, Trump met with national security officials at Camp David to discuss Afghan strategy.

On Saturday, he tweeted: “An important day at Camp David with our very general generals and our military leaders. Many decisions have been made, including on Afghanistan. ”

Although Obama’s policy focuses primarily on Afghanistan and Pakistan, the information indicates that the Trump administration has examined the possibilities of a role for India in its policy review.

A few months ago, the Pentagon had a plan to send about 3,800 additional troops to help reinforce the Afghan army, which is stalled in what some call a stalemate impasse with the Taliban insurgency.
US military commanders often argued that additional troops would help the US reverse the gains made by the Taliban and other militant groups. Trump delegated authority to adjust troop levels to Mattis at the beginning of his administration, but he was introduced by the Pentagon with a range of options for the forward path, including a complete withdrawal of troops and The deployment of more than 4,000 additional soldiers to add to the over 8,000 US forces that are already there.

The hope that the United States could eventually leave Afghanistan was verified by the Afghan government’s struggle to maintain order under the re-emerging Taliban challenge and incursions by extremist groups like Al-Qaeda, ISIS and Network Haqqani ….

Police warn Barcelona attack fugitive ‘dangerous, possibly armed’

Police warn Barcelona attack fugitive ‘dangerous, possibly armed’

The Spanish police warned Monday that the suspected driver of a van that trapped pedestrians in Barcelona was dangerous and probably armed, while a hunting of the Moroccan population is widening all over Europe.

The police in Catalonia issued a call for information about the fugitive, Younes Abouyaaqoub, 22, considered the last remaining member of a 12-man cell.

The other suspects were killed by the police or detained following last week’s attacks in Barcelona and the seaside resort of Cambrils. The Islamic State (IS) claimed responsibility for the assaults, supposed to be the first in Spain.
The authorities on Monday raised the death toll of attacks to 15, confirming that Pau Perez, a 34-year-old man found stabbed dead in a Ford Focus outside Barcelona on Friday, was killed by Abouyaaqoub.

Police had fired on the car as she forced the checkpoint shortly after the carnage of Barcelona, ​​and later found Perez stabbed dead in the vehicle.

Investigators believe that the victim was the owner of the car, which was diverted by Abuyaaqoub to make its exit after the aggression of Barcelona.

Describing Abouyaaqoub about 1.80 meters high, the police tweeted four photographs of the man with short black hair, including three photos in which he wore a black and white striped T-shirt.

It is “dangerous and could be armed”, police said Monday in Catalonia, as officials announce that they have identified the 15 victims in the assaults.

The Spanish authorities also officially informed European police on Monday of the identity of the suspect to allow the launch of a human hunt in Europe.

“We have to talk to the European police to inform them of the identity because this person … is probably wanted in all the European countries,” declared the Minister of the Regional Interior of Catalonia, Joaquim Forn.

Researchers seeking to unravel the terrorist cell have settled on the small border town of Ripoll, at the foot of the Pyrenees.

Many of the suspects, including Abuyaaqoub, grew up or lived in the city.

A Moroccan imam, Abdelbaki Es Satty, aged 40, was also examined because he is supposed to have radicalized youth in Ripoll.

Police attacked more homes in Ripoll on Monday, Forn said.

The police said the imam had spent time in prison and had already been in contact with a suspect wanted on terrorism charges but was never charged with terrorist incidents himself.

In Belgium, the Mayor of the Vilvoorde region told AFP that Satty spent time in the Brussels suburb of Machelen – a neighborhood next to the city’s airport – between January and March 2016.

On the other side of Brussels, the suburb of Molenbeek gained notoriety as a home of international jihadists after the bombing of Brussels in March 2016 and the attacks of Paris in November 2015.

In the Moroccan town of M’rirt, relatives of Abouyaaqoub also accused the imam of radicalizing the young man and his brother Houssein.

“Over the past two years, Younes and Houssein have started to radicalize under the influence of this imam,” their grandfather told AFP.
