Morbi ex gratia of Rs 4 lakh too little, make it Rs 10 lakh: HC tells government

IndiaTimes Thursday, 24 November 2022
The Gujarat high court asked the government on Thursday to increase the compensation money to nearly Rs 10 lakh for each fatality in the Morbi suspension bridge collapse, saying the current amount of Rs 4 lakh is inadequate. It said Rs 50,000 for the injured is a small amount too.

Amid growing furore, Second part of BBC documentary on PM Modi airs in UK | Oneindia News*Explainer

The second part of a new BBC documentary titled 'India: The Modi Question', aired in the United Kingdom last evening. The first part of this very documentary had been blocked by India earlier last week using "emergency powers". A huge controversy had erupted in India over the first episode of this two-part series which tracked PM Narendra Modi's rise through the ranks of the BJP and his appointment as chief minister of Gujarat. It had also revisited his role in the 2002 Gujarat riot which had broken out after 59 Hindu pilgrims died on a train that was set on fire. In this video, we explain what were those emergency provisions India had resorted to in order to to block the airing of this documentary and whether this was just a one-off instance or whether there have been precedents to such actions by the government.
