the two sisters The crime according to the investigators was an act of vengeance after the brother of the victim had named the main accused in a prohibition case In the Assembly Congress MLA Chandrikaben Baria and two others had moved a notice to discuss the case and to know the actions taken by the state government in this regard Speaking on the notice Baria alleged that the main accused was associated with BJP and that the state government has failed to check bootlegging Her allegations created uproar in the House On behalf of the state government Minister of State for Home

51-year-old Rakesh stood atop a heap of garbage next to the infamous mountain of trash at the Ghazipur landfill Three days after L-G Anil Baijal called for an immediate end to dumping of waste at the landfill work resumed as trucks drove in and out at regular intervals “We are left with no alternative since we didn’t get Rani Khera or Ghonda Gurjan This is only for a month Plus after Eid we had to dispose of animal carcasses and we feared an epidemic This is why we have decided to dump at Ghazipur for some more time” said EDMC Mayor Neema Bhagat According to the East civic body about 3000 metric tonnes of waste reach Ghazipur landfill daily of which 1300 metric tonnes are used in the energy plant there “We had a meeting with the LG today and it’s been decided that 500 metric tonnes of waste will be sent to the Okhla energy plant and we are going to increase the capacity of the plant in Ghazipur from 1300 metric tonnes to 2000 metric tonnes” Bhagat said Read |14 years fourteen red flags on landfills ignored On Tuesday close to 240 trucks dumped garbage at the energy plant and the landfill from 730 am to 2 pm according an EDMC official there EDMC truck driver Satyavan 43 drove up to the mound after three days and said “When we went to Rani Khera people deflated the tyres of our trucks damaged the vehicles and beat up some drivers… When I found out we can dump garbage at Ghazipur again I went picked up all the waste and came here” At the entrance to the landfill sat bulldozer drivers R P Sharma and Raj Dulara with flimsy surgical masks in their pockets The smell doesn’t bother them anymore “We all have breathing issues skin problems… many colleagues have contracted tuberculosis because we are not given masks or boots or any kind of precautions For a decade now we have been telling senior officials to do something about this dumping ground… it’s a major health hazard Maybe this incident will improve things for us” said Dulara About the landfill permanently shutting down Sharma said “I will be transferred I will still have my job but I will have to uproot my family” The decision to shut the landfill overnight has also raised some questions “How does it make sense to collect garbage from east Delhi and dump it in north Delhi All of Delhi will stink… most trucks drop a lot of garbage on the road because of potholes or because vehicles are

investigating the effects of weather extremes on the health of people in rural areas has shown that the working age group (20-59 years) were at a higher risk of dying as a result of hot weather Among those particularly vulnerable included farmers lesser-educated people and women Researchers who analysed 3079 deaths from data collected from 2004-2013 from across 22 villages at Vadu east of Pune found that almost 70 per cent persons involved in farming were at risk of heat-related mortality due to high temperatures during summer Two other vulnerable groups included residents with low education and women Vijendra Ingole the lead author of the “Socio-environmental factors associated with heat and cold-related mortality in Vadu Health and Demographic Surveillance System (HDSS) Western India: A population based case-crossover study” told The Indian Express that there was a significant association between daily temperature and mortality The Vadu (HDSS) monitors daily deaths births in-out migration and other demographic trends in 22 villages from two administrative blocks in the rural Pune district Daily deaths from Vadu HDSS and daily weather data (temperature and rainfall) from the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) were collected from 2004 to 2013 “In this analysis we have used data of 3079 deaths (from all causes)” Ingole said The study which has been approved for publication in the International Journal of Biometeorology provides evidence that the rural populations of working age in the country are especially vulnerable to extreme temperatures “We found an increase in total mortality by 48 per cent per °C above a threshold greater than 31°C during the summer periodm” Ingole said Daily mean temperature for the study period of January 2004 to December 2013 was obtained from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) weather data from the local meteorological office of the IMD for the period of 2004-2013 to check its validity with online available data We re-computed mean temperature in both data sets which were reasonably highly correlated Ingole said Co-author of the study Dr Sanjay Juvekar from the Vadu Rural Health Programme run by KEM hospital and research centre said that for the first time this study identified vulnerable population groups (working age groups those with low education and farmers) in relation to high temperature These findings might have important policy implications in preventing heat and cold effects particularly on vulnerable groups Juvekar said Vadu HDSS is a member of the International Network for the Demographic Evaluation of Populations and Their Health (INDEPTH) that conducts longitudinal surveillance for monitoring and evaluation of population health in low and middle-income countries Socio-economic status is one important factor that may be a determinant of heat-related morbidity and mortality Individuals of low income are more likely to have chronic diseases or other medical risk factors mental illness and less adequate types of housing which will all modify the risk of heat-related mortality “We need further studies to achieve better understanding of the multiple social and environmental factors of vulnerability to study interaction with heat exposures in the agricultural and manufacturing industry workers In this study we aimed to quantify the association of heat during summer and winter with mortality by sex age ownership of agricultural land house type education and occupation in Vadu” they said For all the latest Pune
