A freight train carrying coal towards Kalanaur in Haryana got derailed on the dedicated freight corridor track between Barthana and Ekdil stations in Uttar Pradesh on Saturday, officials said.

Following the incident, Railway and police officials reached the spot and started clearing the debris from the railway track. No casualty has been reported in the accident.

Superintendent of Police (rural) Satyapal Singh said 12 bogies of the train were derailed and the coal got scattered around the tracks. Some of the tracks have been damaged owing to the accident.

Officials said the railway’s Kanpur-Tundla route has been closed following the derailment.

The incident comes amid a power crisis in the country when powers plants across the country are struggling to keep up with the rising demand of electricity as they struggle with acute coal shortages. It has been alleged that if the track is not repaired on time it may affect coal supply on the line.

On Friday, the railways had cancelled 753 trips — 363 of mail or express trains and 390 of passenger trains — in the SCER and the NR to facilitate coal freight movement.

Tata IPL 2022 RR vs MI Live Cricket Score and Update: Mumbai Indians snap eight-game losing run with five-wicket win

What a day in the IPL!

If you woke up this morning and got told Kohli will score a 50, MI will win a match and MSD will become captain, what would you say

April 30, 2022

Sanju Samson: “I think we could’ve scored a few more runs. Dew came in and it got a bit hard to bowl later. (Wickets getting tougher to bat on) Maybe, maybe not. It was difficult batting first here. Depends on the wicket we’re playing on.”

After 20 overs,Mumbai Indians 161/5 ( Tim David 20 , Daniel Sams 6)

Kuldeep Sen bowls is entrusted with the final over of the evening, and ends up bowling just two deliveres in the end. Pollard ends up playing a rash pull in the first delivery, getting caught by Mitchell at fine leg to raise hopes of an unlikely RR victory. Daniel Sams, though, walks out and smashes the ball out of the park first thing to bring the game to an end, with Mumbai finally having a W against their name after eight consecutive Ls.

SIX! Daniel Sams finishes things off in style with a mighty hit over the midwicket fence as Mumbai Indians snap their eight-game losing run with a tense five-wicket win over Rajasthan Royals, collecting their first points of the season in the process! MI 161/5

OUT! Kuldeep removes Pollard in the first delivery of the final over, leaving Mumbai Indians needing 4 off 5 with five wickets in hand! Pollard looks to finish things off in style, going for a pull, unfortunately straight in the direction of the fielder at fine leg. MI 155/5

Pollard c Mitchell b Sen 10(14)

After 19 overs,Mumbai Indians 155/4 ( Kieron Pollard 10 , Tim David 20)

Prasidh Krishna bowls the penultimate over. David starts off with a single off the first ball before Pollard collects three consecutive doubles, bringing the required rate well below run-a-ball. A dot and a single to end the over. Mumbai Indians need just four more to collect their first win of the season!

After 18 overs,Mumbai Indians 147/4 ( Kieron Pollard 3 , Tim David 19)

Kuldeep, with two overs left in his kitty, returns in the 18th over. Leg bye added to the MI total in the first delivery followed by a streaky boundary to David in the second off an inside edge that narrowly misses the off pole. The next shot’s even better — David slapping a wide, length ball over extra cover to make it back-to-back boundaries. An under-pressure Sen then bowls a wide down the leg side. Single off each of the next three deliveries, leaving MI needing another 12 off as many deliveries.

After 17 overs,Mumbai Indians 134/4 ( Kieron Pollard 2 , Tim David 9)

SIX! Tim David announces himself at the crease in style, getting down on one knee and slog-sweeping Chahal over long on for a monster hit! It was a googly from the leggie that the Australian-born Singaporean picked perfectly. Chahal beats Pollard completely with a ripper, one that pitches along leg and turns a mile. Pollard, facing three men down the ground including one right in front of the sight screen, decides to tap the ball towards square leg for a single in the last delivery. 10 off Chahal’s final over as he signs off with 1/33. MI need 25 off 18.

After 16 overs,Mumbai Indians 124/4 ( Kieron Pollard 0 , Tim David 1)

Excellent over from Krishna, with just two runs coming off it along with the dismissal of the set N Tilak Varma. Rajasthan are back in the game with the two wickets, and with two new batters at the crease, will look to dictate terms for the remainder of the game. MI need 35 off 24.

Sharif family ‘paid a woman’ to write book to defame him in 2018, claims Imran Khan

The ex-prime minister of Pakistan was referring to the book titled Reham Khan’, a controversial memoir written by his ex-wife Reham, a famous Pakistani British journalist, filmmaker, and author

Islamabad: Ousted Pakistan prime minister Imran Khan has alleged that the Sharif family “paid a woman” — a veiled reference to his ex-wife Reham Khan — to write a book against him during the 2018 general elections, asserting that the “mafia” is once again attempting his character assassination and might release something after Eid, a media report said on Saturday.

Khan referred to the book in an indirect way for the first time since its publication in 2018 at a public gathering in Multan in Punjab province on Friday.

The ex-premier also spoke about his first wife Jemima Goldsmith and said the UK-born TV personality had to go through court cases and face allegations of being a member of the Jewish lobby from the Sharif mafia.

They are the people who paid a woman to write a book against me in the 2018 elections. They will once again go for my character assassination after Eid. For them I have a message I will fight against them as long as I am alive, he was quoted as saying by The Express Tribune newspaper.

The book titled Reham Khan’ is a 2018 controversial memoir written by Reham, a famous Pakistani British journalist, filmmaker, and author.

Reham Khan later took to Twitter to reply to Imran Khan’s accusation:

Khan also accused Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif of ordering the most number of encounters during his tenure as the Punjab chief minister and vowed he would continue speaking against the mafias.

He said Sharifs ran a whole campaign against Jemima, painting her as part of the Jewish lobby.
Khan said Jemima was also booked in a bogus case pertaining to tiles and had to face courts for a year despite the fact that the forensic test had made it clear that the tiles were not antique, the report said.

Since his ouster as the prime minister, Khan has been seeking public support against the foreign conspiracy and for conducting fresh elections in the country.

During his speech, while urging the people to come out to support his narrative against what he calls imported government, Khan said that he would try to gather two million people in Islamabad to demand fresh elections in the country at the earliest.

To a charged crowd, he also vowed to further expose the Sharif family by issuing a White Paper on their corruption cases.

He alleged that the foreign powers had imposed corrupt rulers just because it was easier for them to control them.

Khan’s Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party took out protest rallies across the country on 10 April, a day after he lost a vote of no-confidence. Since then, Khan has addressed attended rallies in several cities, including Karachi, Lahore and Peshawar.

Khan on Saturday announced a rough timeframe for his planned long march to Islamabad, issuing a call for the last week of May without mentioning the exact date, the Dawn reported.

This call is for all of Pakistan not just to the PTI,” he said in a video message released by his party PTI.

“I want to give a message to all of Pakistan to start preparing from now. The start of our preparation will be chaand raat (eve of Eid) and I want to say specifically to the youth that you have to come out with flags and tell the whole world that the Pakistani nation is alive,” he said.

Tamil Nadu: One more electric scooter goes up in flames as EV mishaps continue in India

This is the first EV fire incident of Okinawa since the company has recalled its electric scooters due to battery related issues

An electric scooter caught fire in Hosur, an industrial hub in Tamil Nadu’s Krishnagiri district, on Saturday causing panic in the area. The owner, a supervisor at a private firm in Bengaluru, however had a providential escape.

This is the first EV fire incident of Okinawa since the company has recalled its electric scooters due to battery related issues.

Hosur resident Satish Kumar noticed his scooter suddenly catching fire from under the seat and jumped to safety. As the vehicle went up in flames, passersby rushed to his help in dousing the blaze. But the vehicle was gutted, police said.

Satish had bought the electric two-wheeler last year.

Okinawa scooters

A few days ago Okinawa recalled 3,215 Praise Pro scooters to address any battery-related issues. The batteries were to be inspected for loose connectors or other damage and serviced for free at any of the Okinawa licenced dealerships in India.

The electric 2W maker is working closely with the dealer partners to ensure that the repair experience is as per the convenience of its customers, for which the vehicle owners will be contacted individually.

Electric scooters catch fire

Electric scooters suddenly catching fire has become a cause for concern of late.

In a string of such incidents recently, a father and his daughter died due to suffocation in Vellore district in March due to the smoke caused by the explosion of the electric bike while being charged.

An electric two-wheeler caught fire in Manapparai in Tiruchirappalli district, later.

Earlier this month, a man died when the detachable battery of the electric scooter kept for charging exploded in his house in Telangana.

In Tamil Nadu’s Ambur this month, a frustrated man poured petrol on his e-scooter and set it afire as the manufacturers did not send help on time when he complained that the vehicle stopped working after 50 km. The video of the man torching his own bike went viral on social media.

Last week, electric scooter maker PURE EV, expressing deep regret over the alleged explosion of a battery of an electric scooter leading to the death of an 80-year-old man in Telangana’s Nizamabad, announced that it has decided to recall 2,000 vehicles in Nizamabad and Chennai.

Concerned over the rise in incidents of electric two-wheelers catching fire, Union Road Transport and Highways Minister Nitin Gadkari had said the companies found negligent will be penalised and a recall of all defective vehicles will be ordered after receiving the report of an expert panel that has been formed to inquire into the matter.
