#AceNewsReport – May.03: The strongest tropical cyclone to hit India in 20 years made landfall Friday, killing seven people and lashing the country’s east coast with ferocious winds and torrential downpours: Tropical Cyclone Fani struck near the city of Puri, in Odisha state, as the equivalent of a Category 4 hurricane — packing sustained winds of 240 kilometers per hour (150 miles per hour). The storm is expected to weaken as it moves toward Kolkata, one of India’s most populous cities, and Bangladesh: The seven people who died in Odisha were killed by falling trees and collapsed walls, police spokesman Sanjeev Panda said: After it was predicted: #India Alert: Cyclone Fani, currently over the Bay of Bengal, is predicted to intensify further and cross the Odish… https://t.co/RJ6SuYuANV

Fani made landfall as the strongest cyclone to hit the region since a 1999 storm killed at least 10,000 people. That incident prompted India to reassess its disaster management planning: More than 1 million people were evacuated ahead of Fani, Odisha’s chief minister said in a tweet. About 10,000 villages and 52 towns in nine districts in the state were in the storm’s path, forecasters said. Eleven districts along the Odisha coast were placed on red alert, and some 900 cyclone shelters were set up to house evacuees. 

Meteorologists say storm surges remain a risk as Fani is hitting low-lying coastal regions: Aid agencies are also concerned for hundreds of thousands of Rohingya refugees who fled ethnic violence in Myanmar and are living in refugee camps in Bangladesh near the coast………………….All flights to and from Odisha’s Bhubaneswar airport were canceled from midnight on Thursday. Kolkata’s airport canceled flights from 3 p.m. local time Friday.

The country’s coast guard and navy deployed ships and helicopters for relief and rescue operations: Army and air force units are also on standby in the states of Odisha, West Bengal and Andhra Pradesh.

The storm — which has been downgraded to a “very severe cyclonic” storm — is the first tropical cyclone of the year in the northern Indian Ocean: The country’s cyclone season has two main periods of activity: late April to early June, and October to November.These two periods are before and immediately after India’s southwest monsoon season, which lasts from June through September and provides India with the vast majority of its annual rainfall.

Nearly 800,000 people in eastern India have been evacuated from the expected path of a major cyclone packing winds up to 125 miles per hour and torrential rains, officials said Thursday: The Indian weather service said Extremely Severe Cyclonic Storm Fani was expected to make landfall Friday afternoon.

Police say they have detained five moonshine-makers in connection with the deaths, and eight police officials have been suspended for suspected negligence. “More than 150 have consumed this alcohol.

The death toll may rise,” Mumbai’s deputy police commissioner said, according to Reuters.

Homemade liquor is popular with India’s poor because it is cheap, but it is often made using poisonous industrial ethanol.

@AceNewsServices Indian Fishermen released from Karachi Jail

#AceNewsReport – PAKISTAN:June.18: Pakistan on Thursday released 113 Indian fishermen, AFP reported. The fishermen, who had been kept in a Karachi jail for nine months to a year, were put on a train bound for the eastern border city of Lahore.

The release of the Indian fishermen followed Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s phone call to his Pakistani counterpart, Nawaz Sharif, on Tuesday.

India’s leader offered best wishes to his counterpart on the start of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, and announced the release of the detained fishermen in an apparent move to ease bilateral tensions.

Fishermen are frequently arrested by both India and Pakistan because the maritime border between the two countries in the Arabian Sea is poorly defined.

INDIA: ‘ Journalist reportedly burned alive for reporting politicians corruption ‘

#AceNewsReport – INDIA:June.10: An Indian politician reportedly has been arrested and charged with murder after a journalist covering his alleged corruption was burned alive.

Jagendra Singh was set on fire by police and men sent to his house by Uttar Pradesh dairy development minister Ram Murti Verma on June 1, Singh’s family claimed Tuesday, according to the Times of India.

“They had a heated argument with my father, caught hold of him, poured petrol over his body and set him on fire,” Raghvendra Singh told the newspaper. Singh died from his injuries on Monday and authorities have now filed charges against Verma and four other men.

But police have denied any wrongdoing and claim that Singh tried to commit suicide.

“There was a case against Jagendra Singh. We tried to arrest him but he committed suicide,” a Shahjehanpur police spokesperson told IBN Live, without specifying the allegations.

‘ American Disney blacklist of American tech workers ‘

@AceBreakingNews – USA:June.09: (DAILY CALLER) The American tech workers Disney laid off in January after forcing them to train their foreign replacements were put on a “black list” that disqualified them from hire by any contractor that works with Disney, emails obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation between one of the laid off workers and a recruiting firm show.

The worker, who asked to remain anonymous because he is waiting on legal advice, learned of the black list when he sent his resume and performance review to a local IT recruiting firm that wanted to place him with a company contracting with Disney.

He had plenty of past experience doing similar work for Disney contractors, and had received the highest possible rating on his performance review, so he thought he would be a top candidate for the job.
