India experienced its record-high temperature on Wednesday, reaching 52.3 degrees Celsius. At 2:30 pm, a Mungeshpur temperature monitoring station in Delhi reported this temperature reading. 

The India Meteorological Department’s (IMD) regional chief, Kuldeep Srivastava, explained the reason for the rising temperature by stating that hot winds coming from Rajasthan initially affected the city’s outskirts.

“Parts of Delhi are particularly susceptible to the early arrival of these hot winds, worsening the already severe weather. Areas like Mungeshpur, Narela, and Najafgarh are the first to experience the full force of these hot winds,” he said. 

On the second day of unprecedented heat, the temperature has exceeded nine degrees Celsius over average and rose above the 2002 record of 49.2 degrees Celsius.

Additionally, there was a brief downpour of rain in Delhi on Wednesday evening, which is expected to increase the humidity.

The IMD issued a red-alert health notice for Delhi, a state with an estimated population of more than 30 million people. The advisory states that “extreme care is needed for vulnerable people” and that there is a “very high likelihood of developing heat illness and heat stroke in all ages.”

As more and more people turned on their energy-intensive air conditioners during the heatwave, the nation’s capital recorded its all-time high power consumption of 8,302 megawatts (MW), according to electricity department officials.

A group of former and current international students, mostly from India, have taken to the streets at Prince Edward Island (PEI) in Canada, voicing their distress over a policy shift that jeopardises their future prospects in the country.

According to reports, the controversy centres on the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP), a lifeline for many international students aiming to secure permanent residency (PR) in Canada. Typically, Indian students enroll in institutions in provinces like Ontario or British Columbia. However, upon realising the fierce competition for PR in these densely populated areas, many transfer to smaller, less populated provinces like PEI.

These provinces, grappling with stagnant and aging populations, have historically relied on the PNP to attract temporary residents, thereby addressing labour shortages and sustaining population growth.

Recently, Canada has experienced an unprecedented surge in immigration. PEI, in particular, has seen more international students than its PNP could support.

The provincial government has now decided to prioritise PR for individuals working in essential sectors such as healthcare, early childhood education, and construction.

This new focus leaves many international students, who predominantly work in the food and retail industries, in a precarious position.

Compounding their woes, the federal government’s announcement in December 2023 that the Post-Graduation Work Permit (PGWP) would not be extended has left many students with limited options.

As their permits near expiration, they face the stark choice of returning to their home countries or protesting in hopes of policy reversal.

The protests, driven by desperation, recall past instances where student demonstrations led to government concessions, such as the halting of deportation for students with fraudulent admission letters. However, the current political climate has shifted. With a new immigration minister, declining government approval ratings, and increased job competition, the likelihood of government leniency seems slim.

The protesting students have outlined three primary demands.
First is, students who were already in Canada on valid work permits before the policy change should be allowed to continue under the old system.

Second, the recent exclusion of sectors like sales, services, and trucking from the PNP draws has disadvantaged many students. They are thus demanding the same opportunities as other sectors, saying that the current point system, which requires 65 points, is nearly impossible for those under 25 to achieve.

Third, students are calling for an extension of their work permits to allow more time to meet the new PR criteria.

This protest in PEI might be the first of many as international students across Canada grapple with the new reality of tighter immigration controls.

The Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) in India has acknowledged the significant number of Indian students in Canada but has downplayed the severity of the issue, stating that they are unaware of major deportation problems.

During a weekly media briefing, Randhir Jaiswal, spokesperson for the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) in India, said, “You know we have a large number of students who have gone to Canada to study. The figure is pretty significant. But what you are mentioning is that several students are facing problems that we haven’t come across as of now. Sorry, deportation. I don’t have an update on that. We are not aware of.”

Jaiswal added while there might be isolated cases, the MEA does not see a major problem affecting students in Canada overall. “There may be one case here or one case there, that’s about it. But we don’t see any major problem as far as students in Canada, as they’re concerned.”

The Gujarat Anti-Terrorist Squad (ATS) is soon leaving for Sri Lanka to further probe the arrest of four ISIS terrorists at Ahmedabad airport.

Sri Lankan police have detained two individuals related to the case, while a third suspect, Osmond Gerrard, remains at large. Sri Lanka has declared Gerrard wanted and announced a $2 million reward for his capture.

Gujarat ATS thwarted a potential terror attack with the arrest of four Sri Lankan nationals at Ahmedabad airport on May 20. The apprehended suspects, identified as Mohammad Nusrat (33), Mohammad Farish (35), Mohammad Nafran (27), and Mohammad Rashdeen (43), are believed to be linked to the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

The arrests have taken a new turn with the discovery of objectionable materials at their residences. Mobile phones belonging to the terrorists have been seized and are currently under investigation by the ATS team. Preliminary findings suggest that they were in contact with a Muslim preacher Abu Pakistani and had spent 42 days with him for indoctrination.

Three dedicated teams from Gujarat ATS are actively investigating leads outside the state. Their efforts have revealed that Osmond Gerrard provided the four terrorists Rs 4 lakh and has been known to change his appearance frequently to evade capture. Acting on information from the ATS, Sri Lankan authorities detained two individuals, though Gerrard continues to elude arrest.

The investigation has uncovered that three additional individuals assisted the terrorists in their activities in India. The ATS is now focusing on these accomplices and examining the mobile phones of the arrested for further clues. Notably, it has been discovered that a weapon was delivered via drone over the Pakistan border in Punjab, adding a significant dimension to the case.

In their meticulous investigation, the ATS has analysed CCTV data from 78,000 vehicles near Chiloda, checking 13,000 vehicles for any leads. Additionally, three ATS teams have been dispatched to Delhi, Rajasthan, and Punjab to pursue various angles of the investigation.

Subhash Trivedi, the head of the Special Investigation Team (SIT), said on Wednesday that all suspended officials, including IAS, IPS, and fire department officers, will be summoned and questioned concerning the incident at the TRP Gamezone in Rajkot within a day or two.

Members of the SIT held a meeting with the Minister of State for Home, Harsh Sanghavi, in Gandhinagar. 

After the conclusion of the meeting, SIT head Subhash Trivedi said, “This is a very unfortunate incident. When we visited the scene, we also felt the same anguish as everyone else, as we are also citizens. Initially, decisions have been made based on the files presented within 24 hours, but that does not mean that any culprit will be spared.”

“All IAS and IPS officers will be questioned. Instructions from the Home Minister are clear that whether it is IAS, IPS, or IFS, they will all be summoned and interrogated within one or two days,” he added.

“We had to find the people who were missing or dead in a 3000-degree Celsius temperature, so clearing the areas was not intended to destroy anything but to find out any remains of the missing people or deceased individuals so that DNA and FSL analysis could be conducted to identify them,” the senior officer said in reference to the game zone area being cleared within days of the accident.

Concerning reports that thousands of litres of petrol were kept in the game zone, he said: “As per the Petroleum Act, if the quantity is more than 30 litres, permission has to be obtained. The FSL team is preparing a report on the matter, and action will be taken based on that report.”
