Srinagar: On February 14 in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama district, 20 km away from Srinagar, a CRPF convoy came under attack. An explosive-laden vehicle hit one of the buses in the convoy of 2,500 personnel and within minutes, 40 soldiers were killed in what became the worst terror attack in the state in the last few decades, and the deadliest against security forces in India. Despite the horrific terror attack, the CRPF men are back to doing what they do the best – protecting thousands everyday in one of the most violent parts of India. NDTV visted CRPF’s 118 batallion in Gund, about 70 km from Srinagar, to gain an insight into the lives of CRPF soldiers deployed in Jammu and Kashmir.
Movie News : Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt’s friendship dates all the way back to their first film, Student of The Year (2012).

Varun turned towards them and said, “After a couple of years, she won’t be working with either of you, too!” News website : Latest News in Hindi.
Sport news : ‘One man doesn’t win the IPL,’ Chennai Super Kings coach Stephen Fleming said on Friday, differing with Gautam Gambhir’s viewpoint that one can’t say Virat Kohli and Mahendra Singh Dhoni in the same breath, as India’s captain has not won the tournament. Former India opener Gambhir, who led Kolkata Knight Riders to two Indian Premier League trophies in 2012 and 2014, recently said that in a result-oriented franchise environment, Kohli has been ‘lucky’ to have survived despite Royal Challengers Bangalore never winning the coveted title in his eight years as skipper. But, Fleming thought otherwise. “One man doesn’t win the IPL. It’s a tough competition to win. It’s getting tougher because teams are a lot smarter. Players are conditioned to playing in the IPL. Coaches and managers are getting more shrewd in how they buy and put together teams,” Fleming said.
Auto news : The captain of a doomed Ethiopian Airlines flight did not get a chance to practise on his airline’s new simulator for the Boeing 737 MAX 8 before he died in a crash with 157 others, a pilot colleague said. Captain Yared Getachew, 29, was due for refresher training at the end of March, his colleague told Reuters, two months after Ethiopian Airlines had received one of the first such simulators being distributed. The March 10 disaster, following another MAX 8 crash in Indonesia in October, has set off one of the biggest inquiries in aviation history, focused on the safety of a new automated system and whether crews understood it properly. In both cases, the pilots lost control soon after take-off and fought a losing battle to stop their jets plunging down.
