Arvind Kejriwal Arrest Live Updates: As ED custody ends, Delhi CM likely to be in court today

Arvind Kejriwal Arrest Live Updates: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, arrested by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in connection with the alleged liquor policy scam, will be presented in a court here on Monday as his custody is set to end. Kejriwal has been governing Delhi from jail with his wife Sunita Kejriwal passing his orders to his Cabinet colleagues. On Sunday, Sunita participated in the Opposition INDIA bloc rally where she referred to him as a “freedom fighter” and “sher (lion)” working for the people of Delhi even from jail. She also read out six guarantees that Arvind Kejriwal wanted to make to the people of India if the Opposition alliance won the upcoming Lok Sabha elections: from electricity and schools to statehood for Delhi. What’s next for AAP? If Kejriwal does not get relief from the courts soon enough, the AAP is likely to face an existential crisis as it will in the short term lose the services of a leader who has no peer in the party in terms of mass appeal. This is likely to pose a serious challenge to the party and in a state like Punjab, it may even make voters sway more towards the Congress.

Son of retired cop, college dropout woman, MBA graduate arrested for supplying drugs in Chandigarh

Chandigarh Police’s crime branch has claimed of arresting three drug suppliers that include a son of retired sub inspector from Punjab Police, a college dropout woman, and an MBA graduate, with 1.5 kilograms of heroin. According to the police, accused MBA graduate Vikramjit Singh also operates a music company in Mohali, while his associate Lovepreet Singh, son of retired police officer, of Ludhiana utilised hawala operations to transfer illegal drug money and is affiliated with an international drug syndicate. The woman suspect was identified as Avneet and is an old friend of Vikramjit. Police said that acting on confidential information, the police arrested Vikramjit, who is also known as Vicky, a resident of Moga, and his associate Avneet, who smuggles heroin in Chandigarh and the Tricity area, travelling in a Glanza Car with Punjab registration number near Sector 42 New Lake on March 28. Upon receiving intelligence that the duo planned to deliver drugs near the lake area, UT police formed a team to monitor the area. Upon sighting the targeted vehicle, the police approached its occupants, a man and a woman, for identification. Police said that they identified themselves as Vikramjit (28) and Avneet, a resident of Mohali. A search of the vehicle’s dashboard led to the recovery of 1.012 kilograms of heroin concealed behind the mileage meter. Consequently, a case was registered under Sections 21 and 29 of the NDPS Act, leading to the arrest of both individuals. The remaining quantity of heroin was recovered from Lovepreet. “During the custody, Vikramjit disclosed information, which led to the arrest of Lovepreet in Ludhiana. Vikramjit, an MBA graduate and owner of the music firm “Big Boys” in Sector 91, Mohali, resides in Wambley Society, Sector 91, Mohali. He established connections with Lovepreet during music recording sessions and began trafficking drugs. Vikramjit has been involved in drug smuggling for four years and was previously arrested in a narcotics case by the Sadar Police Station in Moga,” a police officer said. Avneet is a a college dropout. She accompanies Vikramjit for drug pickups and distribution in Chandigarh, and also evaluates the quality of drugs procured from suppliers. According to the police, Lovepreet is linked to international drug syndicates, collaborating with Indian and foreign nationals in cross-border drug smuggling into India. He supplies these drugs to local suppliers in Punjab, and on March 28 received large consignments and processed payments through Hawala operators.

Who have you got? 3.21pm Can Tigers finish the round in first place? I know, it sounds absurd. But there’s a few quirky little milestones on the line here. There’s a world in which the Tigers can finish the end of round four at the top of the NRL table. They only have to beat Parramatta by 24 points to vault to first spot on the ladder! The Eels are missing Mitchell Moses, as well, with a serious foot injury, which will keep him out for at least two months. You just never know, do you? Conversely, the Eels can also finish the end of the round in top spot if they win by 16 points. Can you imagine the pandemonium if Benji’s boys rack up a huge win and are at the top of the ladder by the end of the night? 3.17pm Welcome to a long weekend footy Hello and Happy Easter to all those who celebrate. Had enough of chocolate? The best part of a long weekend is there’s usually footy on Monday. Whatever happened to the old Monday night football? Having flubbed your way through the first day of thee working week, it was always nice to know you could come home, rug up and there’d be footy on the TV. I digress. We’re at CommBank Stadium for the traditional blockbuster between the Eels and Tigers. It’s Monday footy, but in the bright sunshine. If you want long lines in which you never make it to the front of the beer queue, port-a-loos stuck on the hill and corporate boxes where you chuck the beer in an esky full of ice and sit on a plastic chair, you’ve come to the wrong Tigers game.

‘Fully renovated’ house for rent at $750 a week slammed as ‘disgusting’

A house for rent in Sydney that appears to have a toilet connected to water by a hose is being slammed online as “disgusting”. The home in Auburn in the city’s west is up for rent at $750 a week, with the ad claiming it has been “fully renovated”. The advert boasts that the home has three bedrooms, a lounge and dining area, a “good” kitchen with gas cooking, one bathroom plus laundry and “one separated toilet”. READ MORE: Want to buy a home?

And it might claim to be renovated, but the photos tell a different story, as the city’s housing crisis continues. The 10 latest Aussie supermarket products hit by shrinkflationView Gallery “The toilet is connected via a hose from the sink. The kitchen is nightmare fuel, and the laundry looks like you’re gonna get live-ins,” a post in the sh-trentals subreddit said.

Some commenters said they had reported the listing. The cost of living crisis has seen a glut of low-standard rentals being listed. Last month research said Sydney could become known as a grandchild-less city if the housing crisis is not addressed now. Meanwhile, Australia’s rental prices have reached a new record high, breaking through the $600-a-week barrier for the first time. In Sydney, CoreLogic figures put the median weekly outlay at $745, rising beyond $1000 in the Eastern Suburbs and to almost $1170 on the Northern Beaches.

The collapse occurred amid heavy rain Saturday afternoon near Rocky Creek Bridge about 17 miles (27 kilometers) south of Monterey, sending chunks of asphalt tumbling into the ocean from the southbound side of the two-lane road. The highway was closed in both directions in the mountainous area of California’s central coast as engineers assessed the damage, said the state Department of Transportation, or Caltrans. “We are working on a plan to get motorists evacuated from the area,” the California Highway Patrol said Saturday. Around noon on Sunday, crews had determined that travel in the northbound lane was safe, and authorities began periodically escorting motorists around the damaged section. About 300 cars were waiting to travel northbound when officials led the first convoy through the area, the San Francisco Chronicle reported. Some stranded motorists had slept in their cars overnight while others were sheltered at the nearby Big Sur Lodge, the newspaper said. READ MORE Easter weekend storm hits Southern California with rain and mountain snow Heavy rains in northwestern Pakistan kill 8 people, mostly children, and injure 12 4 people die on Spain’s coastlines after falling into sea during high winds Caltrans spokesperson Kevin Drabinski said periodic convoys would continue over the coming days as crews shore up the highway, which had other closures because of rocks and debris in lanes. He urged people to avoid the area. The famous route has seen frequent closures because of collapses, mud flows and rockslides during severe weather. The slow-moving storm dumped heavy rain at lower elevations and more than a foot (0.3 meters) of snow at Sierra Nevada ski resorts around Lake Tahoe. Ryan Kittell, a National Weather Service meteorologist, said the system is typical for March but was not an atmospheric river like many of the other storms that have pounded the state in recent winters. The storm exited the San Francisco Bay Area on Friday and “just marched right down the California coast,” bringing most of the rainfall to the Los Angeles area, Kittell said. The storm then parked itself over Southern California, where it was expected to stay until Sunday night or into Monday. Showers and possible thunderstorms, with the potential for lightning and damaging winds, were still possible for parts of Santa Barbara, Ventura and LA counties.

Caixin survey shows China’s March factory activity at its most robust in 13 months

China’s factory activity in March expanded by its strongest pace in more than a year, a private survey showed on Monday, in signs of stabilizing growth in the world’s second-largest economy. The Caixin/S&P Global China manufacturing purchasing managers’ index was 51.1 in March — its strongest since February 2023 — after coming in at 50.9 in February. Economists had expected the reading to hit 51, according to a Reuters poll. The 50-point mark separates expansion from contraction. This reading corroborates another official survey of manufacturing activity that surpassed market expectations and came at its strongest in 11 months. The official survey for non-manufacturing activity in China recorded its most robust reading since June, adding to encouraging recent export and retail sales data. “Overall, the manufacturing sector continued to improve in March, with expansion in supply and demand accelerating, and overseas demand picking up,” Wang Zhe, a senior economist at Caixin Insight Group, said in the survey release. China’s National Bureau of Statistics released survey data on Sunday that showed the country’s official manufacturing PMI coming in at 50.8 in March, its strongest reading since March last year that was also stronger than expectations for 49.9 in a Reuters poll. These surveys are typically the first economic data points available each month and provide insights on the state of the Chinese economy.

"That Was The Difference": CSK Skipper Ruturaj Gaikwad On Reason Behind Team's Loss Against DC

Chennai Super Kings skipper Ruturaj Gaikwad believes that their struggle to put up runs in the initial overs proved to be the difference during their 20-run defeat against Delhi Capitals. After tottering in the powerplay, MS Dhoni went on a rampage and produced some classic vintage hitting in the final over, sending the crowd into a frenzy. Apart from Dhoni’s brilliance, CSK batters struggled to leave their mark in the powerplay. A scintillating spell from Khallel Ahmed set the narrative in favour of DC. While Mukesh Kumar stole the show by picking up wickets in key moments of the game. (function(v,d,o,ai){ai=d.createElement(“script”);ai.defer=true;ai.async=true;ai.src=v.location.protocol+o;d.head.appendChild(ai);})(window, document, “//a.vdo.ai/core/v-ndtv/vdo.ai.js”);Gaikwad opened up about CSK’s initial struggle after the game and said, “I was pretty much happy with the way they (bowlers) came back after the start (powerplay). Restricting them to 191 was a good effort. The pitch was on the better side in the first innings. Second innings there was extra seam movement and spongy bounce. I felt he (Rachin) was missing it by a big margin. We couldn’t get going in the first three overs and that was the difference.”CSK slowly crawled back into the game, with Ajinkya Rahane and Daryl Mitchell’s 68-run stand. However, Mukesh stood out for DC with his remarkable spell and ensured that CSK remained behind the required rate.”At the halfway stage it was getable. There was extra seam movement and we couldn’t capitalize and we were always behind. We didn’t get the big over to reduce the run rate,” Gaikwad added.Coming to the clash, while chasing a herculean total of 192, after tottering in the powerplay, CSK got back into the game with the help of Rahane and Mitchell’s stand.With 72 runs needed in the final four overs, MS Dhoni went on a rampage and produced some classic vintage hitting in the final over, sending the crowd into a frenzy.However, his effortless stroke play wasn’t enough to pull a rabbit out of the hat and ensure that CSK remained unbeaten.(Except for the headline, this story has not been edited by NDTV staff and is published from a syndicated feed.)

Fielding Sunetra Pawar Against Me “BJP’s Dirty Politics”: Supriya Sule

NCP (Sharad Chandra Pawar) leader Supriya Sule on Sunday said that the BJP’s has conspired to field her sister-in-law Sunetra Pawar, against her in the Baramati Lok Sabha seat with an aim to finish the party chief Sharad Pawar. In an exclusive interaction with ANI in Pune, Ms Sule said, “My fight is not against a person, but their mindset and policies. You have witnessed me in politics for the past 18 years; I have never made any personal comment on anyone.” Ms Sule said Sunetra Pawar is the wife of her “elder brother and the elder sister-in-law is considered a mother.” “It’s dirty politics by the BJP. Sunetra Pawar, being my elder brother’s wife, holds a special place in the family as the “vahini” (in Marathi) elder sister-in-law and she is a mother figure for me, but she has been given to contest against me just to create rift in the family, and the BJP is behind all this. It’s a conspiracy of the BJP, which is aimed at finishing off the name of Pawar Saheb (Sharad Pawar); they have nothing to do with the development etc of the constituency,” she added. Meanwhile, after the announcement as the official candidate from the Grand Alliance for the Baramati seat, Sunetra Pawar said, “Today is a huge day for me. I want to thank Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Union Home Minister Amit Shah, Maharashtra CM Eknath Shinde, Deputy CM Devendra Fadnavis and Ajit Pawar for showing faith one me.” The Baramati seat in Pune district has become a key battleground in Maharashtra’s Lok Sabha election after candidates from both the Sharad Pawar and Ajit Pawar factions of the Nationalist Congress Party were announced, turning it into a ‘Pawar versus Pawar’ contest. The Baramati Lok Sabha constituency has been a stronghold of Sharad Pawar since the 1960s, Ajit Pawar has been a successful MLA from Baramati since 1991, with a significant victory in the 2019 elections and said to have had a major influence on vidhansabha seats of Indapur, Daund, Purandar, Bhor, and Khadakwasla, which comes under Baramati Lok Sabha. Supriya Sule will be contesting this seat for the third time, while Sunetra Pawar will be making her political debut in this election. Lok Sabha polls in Maharashtra will be held in five phases on April 19, April 26, May 7, May 13 and May 20. The counting of votes will be held on June 4. The state, with its 48 Lok Sabha seats, is the second-largest contributor to the lower house of Parliament after Uttar Pradesh. Known for its political diversity and significant electoral influence, Maharashtra plays a crucial role in shaping national politics. In the 2019 elections, the BJP emerged as the largest party with 23 seats, followed by the Shiv Sena with 18 seats.
