Punjab's Pathankot district has gone on high alert after a suspicious bag was found on Sunday evening which contained 3 Army uniforms. The bag was spotted near the Mamoon Army Cantonment Base and the area was cordoned off. A joint operation was launched by Army jawans, police teams and SWAT commandoes.
Earlier this month itself, two suspicious bags had been found a few yards away from the military base in Pathankot and an alert had been sounded. The bags were found to contain mobile tower batteries.
Since the Pathankot Air Force Station attack in January 2016, when part of the Western Air Command of the Indian Air Force was attacked by a group of heavily armed terrorists killing 7 jawans and injuring 37 others, any suspicious activity in the area is investigated thoroughly....
One of the most adorable new star kids on the block is Taimur Ali Khan Pataudi, the son of chote Nawab Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan. Born in December 2016, Taimur has had limited sightings in public, but the cuter-than-cute baby became a fan favourite in no time and has garnered a fan following of his own.
The name of the little one 'Taimur' kicked off controversy when the happy parents announced it as the public began comparing the name the one of a former invader of the nation.
A few choice comments by the parents and other Bollywood well-wishers later, fans disregard the name and only hope for more pics of little Taimur.
Recently, Taimur was spotted in the arms of an attendant on the way to the home of his aunt Karisma Kapoor.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed the nation in his monthly 'Mann Ki Baat' radio address for the first time since completing 3 years in power and highlighted the importance of constructive criticism in strengthening democracy and assured that mistakes and shortcomings will be rectified.
Defending the monthly address which had come under fire for being allegedly 'one way communication' PM Modi said that the monthly radio address enabled him to become a member of every family in India.
"Audit and assessment of the performance of the present government in the last three years is happening all over on newspapers, social media or TV for the last 15 days. There have been many surveys and several opinion polls. I see this entire process as a very healthy sign," Modi said.
"Constructive criticism strengthens democracy, for an aware nation, an awakened nation, this churning is very important," he said, referring to the surveys which highlight both praise and criticism of his government's record so far.
He said the work done by his government was tested on every touchstone and analysed by every segment of society.
"This is a great process in democracy. I firmly believe that governments must be accountable in democracy and the public at large must be provided with report card of works done," he said, expressing gratitude for the critical and important feedback.
"The mistakes and the shortcomings once highlighted can be rectified. Whether something is good, little less effective, or bad, whatever it is, one has to learn from it and move ahead in life, putting the learning from it into practice."
"Some people take 'Mann Ki Baat' as a monologue and some criticise it from a political angle," he said admitting that he never thought that programme launched two years ago would make him a member of every Indian family.
"Now I feel as if I'm conversing with my family while sitting at home," said Modi, describing himself as "ordinary citizen" who, like all, is "influenced...
Bollywood's favourite darling Ranveer Singh has taken a break from the shooting of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's magnum opus 'Padmavati' where he plays the role of Alauddin Khiliji alongside alleged lady love Deepika Padukone to go on a vacation, solo.
Recently, Ranveer suffered from a head injury on the sets of Padmavati and was rushed to the hospital due to heavy bleeding and left with a few stitches to the head. Recovering from his head injury, Ranveer took off for a solo vacation to London after making a quick stop to meet Deepika Padukone.
Before you jump to conclusions on why Ranveer went alone for a vacation, this is the reason: the entire vacation is sports themed! A self-confess sports aficionado, the vacation began for Ranveer by watching the Arsenal v/s Chelsea FA Cup final match in Wembley on Saturday after which he plans to catch the India vs Pakistan ICC Champions Trophy match on June 4 in Birmingham.
Since the vacation has been planned according to a previously scheduled break from shooting for Padmavati, Ranveer won't be missing out on any work and will resume shooting from June 8....

Solar Impulse 2 landed today in the UAE, completing its epic journey to become the first sun-powered airplane to circle the globe without a drop of fuel to promote renewable energy.
The plane touched down at 04:05 (0535 IST) in the capital Abu Dhabi after a more than 48 hour-long flight from Cairo, the final leg in its journey which began on March 9 last year.

Cheers and clapping welcomed the plane as it arrived at Al-Bateen Executive Airport, where it first launched its world tour, an AFP journalist reported.
Swiss explorer and project director Bertrand Piccard was in the cockpit during the 2,763 kilometre flight from Cairo, crossing the Red Sea, the vast Saudi desert and flying over the Gulf.
The flight capped a remarkable 42,000-kilometre journey across four continents, two oceans and three seas.
Solar Impulse 2 took off from Cairo on the final leg early on Sunday, having previously crossed Asia, North America, Europe and North Africa.
The future is clean, the future is you, the future is now, let's take it further," said Piccard as he disembarked. One thing I would like for you to remember: More than an achievement in the history of aviation, Solar Impulse has made an achievement in the history of energy,he said.
We have enough solutions, enough technologies. We should never accept the world to be polluted only because people are scared to think in another way.
Dubbed the "paper plane", Solar Impulse 2 has been circumnavigating the globe in stages, with 58-year-old Piccard and his compatriot Andre Borschberg taking turns at the controls of the single-seat aircraft.
Borschberg, 63, smashed the record for the longest uninterrupted journey in aviation history with the 8,924- kilometre flight between Nagoya, Japan and Hawaii that lasted nearly 118 hours.The adventure began 13 years ago... #futureisclean," he tweeted on Monday.
No heavier than a car but with the wingspan of a Boeing 747, the four-engine, battery-powered aircraft relies on around 17,000 solar cells embedded in its wings.
The plane has clocked an average speed of 80 kilometres an hour.
The pilots use oxygen tanks to breathe at high altitude and wear suits specially designed to cope with the extreme
They have had to withstand temperatures inside the tiny cockpit ranging from minus 20 degrees to plus 35 degrees Celsius.
Piccard has said he launched the project in 2003 to show that renewable energy can achieve the impossible.
