Estimated to cost around Rs 7500 Crore, the Delhi-Meerut highway project was launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Popularly known as the “road to freedom from pollution”, this new signal-free highway would connect Meerut to Delhi while doing away with 31-odd traffic signals and cutting down the travel time from two and a half hours to mere 40 minutes.
Nine persons were killed and 15 injured when an accident took place at the Mehta village, situated 15 kilometers from Amritsar. The accident occurred after a private bus hit a ‘peter rehra’ (a homemade motorised car carrying labourers) from behind, said the SSP of Amritsar, Jasdeep Singh Saini.
The Dirty Picture star, Vidya Balan, along with husband Siddharth Roy Kapoor was on her way to an undisclosed New Year holiday destination when she suffered shooting pain in her back. Soon after de-boarding, Vidya was taken to Mumbai where she was diagnosed with kidney stone and hence admitted to the Hinduja Hospital in Mumbai’s Khar area.
