|Fake SIM card racket busted in Mumbai|
Mumbai, The anti-terrorism squad (ATS) claimed to have busted a fake SIM card racket with the arrest of three persons from Jogeshwari on Saturday. This is the fifth fake SIM card racket to be detected in the city in the last four months.
Acting on a tip-off, ATS sleuths raided Chaurasiya Communication near Ghaswala compound in Jogeshwari and arrested Manoj Chandan Singh, Ram Manohar Lalbahadur and Kaushal Sharma. Investigators said the trio has been selling active SIM cards without any verification.
ATS chief Rakesh Maria said 175 SIM cards, 17 demo cards, seven rubber stamps, 23 photographs of different persons and PAN cards were recovered from the trio.
The perpetrators of last year's July 13 triple blasts had used fake SIM cards to execute the terror attacks.
The accused used to make copies of original documents submitted by customers, said the police, adding that they would then paste photographs of different people to create fake identification documents. The trio used these bogus papers to activate SIM cards. "We are now looking for more than 60 persons who had purchased fake SIM cards from the accused," said Maria.
Last month, the police arrested SIM ...

|Govt working on new civil aviation policy: Zaidi|
New Delhi, The ministry of civil aviation is working out a new policy to factor in needs of the fast-growing sector over the next ten years, secretary Nasim Zaidi said on Wednesday.
“We have about five months to complete the process,” he said while inaugurating the conference titled ‘Air Cargo as Engine of Economic Growth’ organised by The Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India (ASSOCHAM).
The new policy will encourage private sector investments and lay emphasis on setting up an air cargo promotion board, Mr Zaidi said. With GDP growing annually at nearly eight per cent, the air cargo industry has been averaging annual growth of 12 per cent.

While the domestic cargo is expected to increase from 0.8 million tonnes to 1.7 million tonnes by 2016-17, the international cargo traffic is projected to move up from 1.5 million tonnes to 2.7 million tonnes in the same period.

|HPCL distributors threaten protest |
Jalandhar, January 19 (DNS)- Reacting to the “non-cooperative attitude” of the Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Limited (HPCL) authorities in smoothening the supply of LPG, the Punjab unit of the All-India LPG Distributors Federation today threatened that shutters of the HPCL gas agencies would be pulled down if the corporation failed to cover the backlog.
Representatives of the federation alleged that only 40 per cent of the total LPG required was being supplied by the corporation. In these circumstances, it was not possible for the agency owners to fulfil the demand of the consumers.
“As oil corporations are bearing losses to the tune of Rs 300 per cylinder, the HPCL authorities are forcing their distributors to minimise the sale, so that the magnitude of the loss can be brought down. Though the two other oil corporations, Bharat Petroleum and Indian Petroleum, are also bearing the same loss, they are successfully maintaining the supply line,” said Capt KJS Butter, president of the north-west region of the federation.
He along with the state president of the federation, Harsimarjit Kaur, and distributors from all over the state threatened that the HPCL distributors ...
