Indian Muslims hold placards and shout slogans against Pakistan during a protest in Mumbai on February 15, 2019, the day after an attack on a paramilitary Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) convoy in the Lethpora area of Kashmir. India and Pakistan’s troubled ties risked taking a dangerous new turn on February 15 as New Delhi accused Islamabad of harbouring militants behind the deadliest bombing in three decades of bloodshed in Indian-administered Kashmir. At least 41 paramilitary troops were killed on February 14 as explosives packed in a van ripped through a convoy bringing 2,500 troopers back from leave not far from the main city Srinagar.

Legal action against

Madush in Dubai

Police have not sent a single representative to Dubai to monitor legal action against notorious underworld criminal Makandure Madush, Police sources claim.

However, several lawyers have gone to Dubai to represent the suspects and are feeding the media with wrong information, a senior police officer said, adding that the police should have immediately sent a representative to monitor the investigations in that country.

He said: "Since we haven’t sent anyone there, lawyers representing the suspects plant various stories in the media. Most of the information they provide is misleading. These lawyers are also acting without any responsibility."
