BBC reports an Indian Air Force military plane is missing since 22 July and there have been no clues as to what happened to it.

Reportedly, an Indian Air Force Antonov-32, a Russian made aircraft, took off from Chennai and was headed for Port Blair,  in the eastern archipelago of Andaman and Nicobar. The plane lost its contact when flying at an altitude of 23,000 feet and was some 270 kilometers away from its taking off base.





The aircraft is said to have descended "very fast" from its cruising height and vanished from the radar. There was no distress call from the cockpit. At the time of disappearance, the aircraft was on the fringes of blind spot, a radar-less coverage area of some 150-200 nautical miles.

Zika attacks the UK


The attack of Zika virus is becoming a concern for the health officials of Britain as the cases of Zika attack are slowing building up as reported by the Daily Mail.

Health officials have revealed that so far 53 cases of Zika have been reported in the UK as three new cases are reported in Yorkshire.





It may be added that the infection caused by Zika virus begins with mild illness in most people. But it subsequently leads to microcephaly in infants, a birth defect where a baby's head and brain are smaller than normal. The World Health Organisation has declared the Zika virus a global public health emergency.

So stay updated on Zika alert news by local health department and take precautionary measure.

It was a remarkable day for Pakistan to beat England in the heart of Lord's cricket ground by 75 runs. The victory came after a spell of 20 long years.

While performing brilliantly himself, Misbah scored a century at the age of 43 years in the first innings to go down in the history books being the oldest to score a ton. Not only him, another emerging bowler Yasir Shah took five wickets in the first innings and also broke a 20 years old record. Yasir was declared man of the match for bagging 10 wickets in both innings.





At the end of the match, the Pakistan team not only dedicated the victory to Abdul Sattar Edhi, the Pakistani philanthropist who died earlier this month, but also thanked Pakistan Army for arranging a rigorous pre-departure camp to keep the boys in super fit shape.

What a day in Turkey today: After having undergone a turmoil for almost a day, the people of Turkey who stood against a small faction of the frustrated military officers and men, the democracy returns and dissidents surrender.

Up to 100 Turkish soldiers surrender on Bosphorus Bridge after their military coup fails, ending with 60 dead and President Erdogan vowing revenge: 'They will pay a heavy price for their treason.' More than 750 rebel soldiers have been detained after the failed coup.





At least 60 people including 17 police officers have been killed in the clashes in a bid to restore the president's rule. The coup launching soldiers bombed the Turkish parliamentary building and gunned down police and citizens protesting their unconstitutional move.

Misbah becomes oldest player in history to hit a century


Pakistan's disputed cricket team skipper Misbah, oft criticized for his age, has become the oldest man in the history of cricket to score a century at the age of 42 at Lords against England in the first test match being played between the two countries these days.

It may be a coincidence that this is Misbah's first ever century playing against England in England. He thus becomes the sixth oldest player in Test history to make a century. After scoring his 100, Misbah performed several press-ups, just as 73-year-old actor Jack Palance did when winning the Best Supporting Actor Oscar at the 1992 Academy awards.





It may be recalled that Misbah equaled West Indies' Vivian Richards´s then world record for the fastest-ever Test century in mere 56-ball hundred against Australia in Abu Dhabi in 2014 :a mark surpassed by Brendon McCullum´s 54-ball hundred for New Zealand against Australia at Christchurch in February.

This is one such announcement so far - it is feared that many other events may also be cancelled.

Wearable Safety Bracelets for Hajjis this year


Hajj is an annual religious ritual of Muslims all over the world who come to the holy city of Makkah in Saudi Arabia to perform this holy duty. However, due to increasing number of worshipers coming to the holy land, there are chances of one going missing or lost from his group or family in the rush of millions of people. Also last year's stampede that took a heavy toll of the worshipers made it difficult for the organizers to find and account for the missing.

In order to keep a track of each and every individual, Saudi government and its Hajj directorate has come up with a novel idea of a safety electronic bracelet which will be given to each worshiper from this year to keep them  counted and located if lost.





The weather resistant bracelet would come with personal and medical information embedded into it and a GPS to keep the track of everyone.
