No deal with US on bringing back Dawood Ibrahim: RK Singh

New Delhi, Jan 14 (ANI): Former Union Home Secretary RK Singh refuted claims of Home Affairs Minister Sushilkumar Shinde who said that the US intelligence agency has offered help to arrest most wanted gangster, Dawood Ibrahim. Earlier, Shinde said that India was in touch with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to bring back underworld don and 1993 Mumbai serial blasts accused that killed at least 250 people. Singh, who served under Shinde and recently retired, said it was a ridiculous claim. Congress leader Saifuddin Soz said that Singh’s comment was unfortunate. Jan 14, 2014

India set to be polio-free nation, will boost immunisation drive

New Delhi/Amritsar/ Purulia/ Mumbai, Jan 14 (ANI): India marked three years since its last reported case of polio, paving the way for it to be declared free of the crippling virus and boosting efforts to wipe out the disease globally. The country's last case of the wild polio virus was detected on January 13, 2011, in West Bengal. World Health Organisation (WHO) would officially declare India as polio-free by the end of March, when the legal process for certification is completed, according to a WHO representative. Health Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad said it is a historic day for the country, which once counted for over half of the global polio burden. Jan 14, 2014
