Deadly landslide in Maharashtra’s Raigad claims 16 lives

In one of the biggest natural disasters in Mahrashtra, a massive landslide precipitated by over 400mm of rainfall flattened a remote tribal hamlet named Irshalwadi in Khalapur tehsil in the foothills of the Sahyadri range in Raigad district on Wednesday night. Rescuers have retrieved 16 bodies but nearly 100 are believed to have been swept under torrents of mud and rock in their sleep.

The 16 dead include 12 adults and 4 children of which eight are males and eight females. Four teams of the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF)’s 5th battalion from Pune headed by its commanding officer SB Singh are leading the rescue operation along with other relief agencies at the site which is not accessible by a motorable road. NDRF teams rescued 21 villagers and some livestock including a bullock.

Karjat sub divisional officer Ajit Nairale said houses of 18 families were damaged and seven others partly. An incessant downpour slowed down rescue work and prevented exacavators from being transported to the hilly site. Singh said the rescue operation was called off on Thursday evening and will restart on Friday morning. There is no landing possibility to airlift excavation machinery using airforce aircraft, given the hill terrain and bad weather. Singh said there is a little chance of survival of the victims, whoever are trapped. The exact number of trapped persons remains unclear.

The hilly settlement near Karjat consisted of 48 Thakur households dependant on agriculture, livestock anf farmwork. Officials said 88 villagers are believed to have survived. Chief minister Eknath Shinde rushed to site and later walked up to the landslide hit zone to take stock. He said the administration were trying to trace all those missing. He announced an ex-gratia of Rs 5 lakh for the next kin of the deceased and asked for shelters to be arranged for the survivors.

Located 80 km from Mumbai at the foothills of Irshalgad fort, Irshalwadi is a far flung settlement in Khalapur tehsil near Karjat. Motorised vehicles such as JCBs and cranes could not immediately reach the disaster site.

Supreme Court asks AAP to vacate its Delhi office by June 15

The Aam Aadmi Party has been ordered to vacate its Delhi office by June 15. The Supere Court gave the rulling party extra time in light of the impending Lok Sabha elections.

Since the office is situated on land that the Delhi High Court was granted in order to expand a district court, the Aam Aadmi Party is ordered to leave the space.

In addition, the Supreme Court directed AAP to apply to the Land and Development Office for a land allocation for its offices.

It has mandated that the party’s request be processed by the Land and Development Office in a timeframe of four weeks. Additionally, it requested that the department notify everyone of its decision by the deadline.

The Aam Aadmi Party argued that since its party office is close to the Rouse Avenue court, it is not an encroachment because it was allocated long before the space was set aside for the court’s expansion, as per a report.

According to AAP lawyer Abhishek Manu Singhvi, the NCT used the land from 1993 till 2015, when AAP was granted ownership. He mentioned that the AAP is one of the six national parties in India.

AM Singhvi said the BJP has a comparable-sized office in the same location. He did add, according to the website, that they are put on the road two months before the elections.

Singhvi said the AAP has been asked to establish an office in Delhi’s Badarpur area. In addition, he claimed that LNDO has two plots at the same location that AAP could be granted.

All other parties would have to follow suit if the AAP was compelled to relocate to Badarpur. The party ought to secure a location in the heart of Delhi, he said.

The AAP was later given till June 15, 2024, by Chief Justice of India DY Chandrachud, to leave the property so that land allotted to extend district judiciary footprint can be used.
