Meanwhile, Prime Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan arrived in Dehradun on Sunday evening to take stock of the relief effort related to the bus crash of pilgrims from Madhya Pradesh in Uttarkashi district of Uttarakhand, which killed 25 people on the bus after he had fallen into a ravine.

Chouhan held a meeting with officials after arriving in the mountain state and took stock of the situation.

The CM announced an ex gratia of Rs.5,000 each for the families of the deceased and Rs.50,000 each for those injured in the pilgrims’ bus accident.

On a global level, Russian President Vladimir Putin has warned the United States that if Washington starts supplying Ukraine with long-range missiles, Moscow would attack new targets, according to media reports.

In a TV interview, Putin said that supplying new weapons to Ukraine was only aimed at “delaying the armed conflict for as long as possible,” CNN reported, citing the TASS news agency.

In the case of deliveries of long-range missiles to Kyiv, Russia will draw “reasonable conclusions” and attack those “facilities” it has not yet attacked, he said.
