Around 700 Indian students, mostly from Punjab, are facing deportation from Canada after Canadian authorities found the students’ admission offer letters to educational institutions to be fake. The matter came to light in March when these students applied for permanent residency in Canada. Punjab NRI Affairs Minister Kuldip Singh Dhaliwal on Tuesday sought the intervention of External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar in the matter of 700 Indian students facing deportation from Canada.
Security was beefed up across Punjab on Thursday with the state police carrying out flag marches and deploying adequate number of security personnel at crucial places ahead of Operation Bluestar anniversary on June 6.

The Cuban and US governments have both denied a media report saying Havana and Beijing agreed to establish a Chinese electronic eavesdropping facility in Cuba, some 160 kilometers south of Florida. A spy base with such proximity to several US military bases in the southeastern region of the country would have allowed Beijing to collect electronic communications and monitor ship traffic. The report about this secretive spying base was published in the Wall Street Journal. The report mentioned that the agreement was also reached in-principle in exchange for "several billion dollars" for the cash-strapped Latin American country. Quoting unnamed US officials familiar with “highly classified intelligence”, the article said the proposed base would allow China to conduct “signals intelligence”, a kind of espionage that would allow it to intercept emails, phone calls and other data from the US. The Journal reported the facility would allow Beijing to gather electronic communications from the southeastern US, which houses many US military bases, as well as monitor ship traffic. The US Central Command headquarters is based in Tampa. Fort Liberty, formerly Fort Bragg, the largest US military base, is in North Carolina.

After 2016, El Nino is back in the Pacific Ocean, The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), USA, declared on Thursday that the weather-changing El Nino that packs the power to blunt the Atlantic hurricane season has begun. El Nino, which in Spanish means little boy, is a climate pattern that develops along the equatorial Pacific Ocean after an interval of a few years ranging between 2 and 7 years. Globally, El Nino has been often associated with severe heatwaves, floods and droughts in the past. Sea surface temperatures across the equatorial Pacific Ocean have risen 0.5C (0.9F) above normal and wind patterns have changed to the point where El Nino criteria have been met, the US Climate Prediction Center said Thursday.
