  • Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh along with Director General of Jammu and Kashmir Police Dilbag Singh shoulders a coffin of a slain CRPF jawan during a wreath laying ceremony for the martyrs of Pulwama terror attack, at the CRPF camp in Budgam. . . . An indefinite curfew has been imposed in parts of Jammu following protests that broke out on Friday, a day after at least 40 Central Reserve Police Force jawans were killed in a suicide bomb attack. The Jaish-e-Mohammed claimed responsibility for the attack in Pulwama. . . . On Friday, PM Narendra Modi said that security forces have been given free hand. “If our neighbour, which is totally isolated in the world, thinks it can destabilise India through its tactics and conspiracies, then it is making a big mistake,” Modi added. Rahul Gandhi said Opposition parties will stand united with the government in the time of mourning. . . . (Twitter/PTI Photo)  #india #indians #pulwama #pulwamaattack #budgam #narendramodi

  • #5YearsOfScroll | As Scroll.in turns five, we take a look back – and forward At 8.30 am on Republic Day 2014, Scroll.in published its first article. “Ambedkar dreaming: Constitution’s architect talks of his hopes for new India,” said the headline. In the constantly mutating world of the internet, we weren’t quite sure what shape our publication would assume. But we set ourselves an expansive goal: to cover “the news that matters and the things that make life worth living”. In those early days, months away from a crucial national election, our small team of reporters travelled the length and breadth of the country to bring you dispatches that foregrounded the concerns of ordinary Indians – voices that were being drowned in the sound and fury of the political campaign. Five years and approximately 121,664 pieces later, just over ten million readers every month affirm that we are their trusted news source. Many of them are subscribers who help support our award-winning journalism. As our team has grown, so has the number of sections on Scroll.in. Each weekday dawns with Your Morning Fix, a news show produced by our Video team. “The Latest” provides updates on the news as it breaks. “The Field” proves that India is interested in sporting action beyond the cricket pitch. “The Reel” reflects the fact that India is home to many more film genres than just Bollywood. “Magazine” brings you stories about art and food, quirks of history and eccentric tales. “Books and Ideas” has a sharp focus on the literary world, with reviews and trend pieces. “Pulse” reports on the state of India’s health. We are months away from the national election. Before the storm of sloganeering begins, we want reflect on the five years that have gone by. For those seeking facts over opinion, we have put together a series of informationally rich and rigorously researched articles on #TheModiYears. The project revisits the key milestones and initiatives of the Modi government and examines their impact on our national life. You can check it out on our website.

  • “We are told to put our faith in the system, if we want justice. Where is the justice?” 7-yr-old Adya was admitted to the Fortis hospital in Gurugram on August 31 with symptoms of dengue. 14 days later, she died and the hospital presented her family with bills of Rs 16 lakh. A committee formed by Haryana govt to look into the matter recommended the team of three doctors that treated Adya be held accountable for medical negligence. One of doctors had allegedly removed life support from the child while she was being taken home in an ambulance. The committee also found that doctors forged Adya's father's signature on the consent form that allowed them to put her on ventilator support. But one year later, Fortis hospital has escaped the police net. Click on the link in our Instagram story to read more.
