Detention of political leaders ends in Jammu, continue in Kashmir

Jammu, Oct 2, 2019 –

Detention of all political leaders in Jammu has been ended but their counterparts in Kashmir continue to be under house arrest.

The leaders from political parties like National Conference (NC), Congress and Jammu and Kashmir National Panthers Party (JKNPP) have been freed in Jammu. They were put under preventive detention since August 5 when the Centre revoked special status of Jammu and Kashmir granted under Article 370.

NC leaders Devender Rana and SS Salathia, Congress’ Raman Bhalla and Panthers Party leader Harsh Dev Singh are among the prominent leaders who are no longer under house arrest.

The move to release political leaders in Jammu came after announcement of Block Development Council elections to be held on October 24.

However, political leaders in Kashmir, including NC’s Farooq Abdullah and Omar Abdullah, PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti and J&K People’s Conference leader Sajjad Gani Lone, continue to be under house arrest.

Nearly 400 political leaders were either detained or placed under house arrest as the Centre ended special status of J&K and bifurcated the state into two Union Territories — Jammu and Kashmir Union Territory and Ladakh Union Territory.

Over 250 petitions have been filed against the preventive detention orders against prominent political leaders in Jammu and Kashmir. Petitions have also been filed in the Supreme Court against the detentions.  (Agency)

This AI tech may spot unseen signs of heart failure

New York, Oct 19, 2021- US researchers have developed an electrocardiogram-reading algorithm that can detect subtle signs of heart failure. Heart failure, or congestive heart failure, occurs when the heart pumps less blood than the body normally needs. For years, doctors have relied heavily on an imaging technique called an echocardiogram to assess whether a patient may be experiencing heart...
