New Delhi, Feb 10: A 44-year-old man allegedly killed his daughter and son before ending his life by jumping in front of a Delhi metro train at Haiderpur Badli Mor station on Sunday, police said.

No suicide note has been recovered, but police claimed that the man, Madhur Malani, was depressed since his sandpaper-manufacturing factory was closed some six months ago due to financial crunch leaving him jobless. Madhur's parents had been supporting his family financially since then.

He used to stay with his wife Rupali, daughter Samiksha (14) and six-year-old son Shraiyans at a rented house in northwest Delhi's Shalimar Bagh area, they said.

Rupali was not at home when Madhur strangled their children. He might have also smothered their daughter but the exact cause of death would be ascertained only after the post-mortem reports arrive, a police official said.

After killing his two children, he jumped in front of an approaching train at Haiderpur Badli Mor Metro station following which he was rushed to a hospital where doctors declared him 'brought dead', the official said.

Metro services on the Yellow Line were briefly delayed due to the incident.

"Delay in services from Samaypur Badli to GTB Nagar due to a passenger on track at Haiderpur Badli Mor," the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) tweeted.

After about 15 minutes, it again tweeted that normal services have been restored. The Delhi Metro's Yellow Line connects Samaypur Badli in Delhi to HUDA City Centre in Gurgaon.

The suicide was reported to the police around 5.40 pm while the Shalimar Bagh Police station received a call about the killings around 6.50 pm.

On reaching the house, police found bodies of the children lying in beds in two rooms. During enquiry, it was learnt that their father has left the house, a senior police officer said.

While police were trying to trace Madhur, they learnt about a suicide at the metro station. On verifying the details, it surfaced that Madhur committed suicide after killing his children, the officer said.

Rupali told police that she had gone to a nearby market around 3 pm and on returning home she found the bodies of her children while her husband was missing.

A case under relevant sections of the IPC has been registered and investigation was underway, Deputy Commissioner of Police (Northwest) Vijayanta Arya said.

Mangaluru, Sep 24: 18-month-old girl child with severe congenital heart disease has undergone Total Anomalous Pulmonary Venous Connection (TAPVC) repair at Indiana Hospital and Heart Institute, Mangaluru. The treatment was successfully performed in the last week of July 2020.

The child arrived at the hospital with issues of severe breathlessness and failure to gain weight. At the time of admission, the child was barely weighing 5 kg, which is comparable to the weight of a two-month baby. She was diagnosed with Supra Cardiac type of TAPVC, a rare condition in which blood vessels that drain the lungs (pulmonary veins) are connected abnormally to the heart. This disease causes oxygen-poor blood being distributed all over the body, causing severe breathlessness, bluish discolouration of the body and severe failure to thrive.

Following the family’s consent, TAPVC repair was performed last week. In this procedure, the abnormal venous connection was repaired in an open chest procedure. According to hospital authorities, it is one among the rare open cardiac surgeries done in children in Dakshina Kannada and neighbouring districts.

The procedure took about three hours to complete and the child got discharged after a week with great relief in her symptoms. Dr Yusuf Kumble, managing director and chief interventional cardiologist, Dr Ali Kumble chairman and HOD, paediatrics, Dr Abhishek neonatologist, Dr Siddharth V T cardiac surgeon, Dr Madhan cardiac anaesthetist and Dr Arun Varghese paediatric intensivist, were part of the procedure.

The family was of very poor financial background and did not even possess BPL card. Hence the managing director of Indiana Hospital and Heart Institute, Dr Yusuf Kumble issued a cheque of Rs. 1.5 lac for surgery from Indiana Fathima Health Foundation, a Trust set up to help the poor and needy people. This helped in meeting the cost of treating the child and providing financial relief to the helpless family.

Tel Aviv, Sep 12: Israel has planned to halt international flights as part of a full nationwide shutdown starting next week due to an increase in the Covid-19 morbidity rate, the media reported.

In a report Hebrew-language news website “Ynet” on Friday, a senior official in the Ministry of Health was quoted as saying that “the closure means that there is no entry to Israel and no exit”, reports Xinhua news agency

Israel Airports Authority (IAA) spokesman Ofer Lefler told Xinhua that the IAA is not currently preparing for halting flights, as since the country’s pandemic outbreak in late February, Ben Gurion Airport has not been totally closed.

He added that the IAA will address the issue and update only after receiving an order from the government.

Israel officially resumed international flights on August 16 and declared that travellers from 30 countries were not required to enter 14-day quarantine.

On Thursday night, the Prime Minister’s Office and Health Ministry announced in a statement that the Corona Cabinet had decided to impose the full closure due to morbidity rise.

The start date of the closure will be decided by the government at its meeting on Sunday.

It will be the first in a three-stage plan aimed to lower the morbidity data.

The closure is supposed to include the upcoming period of Jewish holidays, between the Jewish New Year’s Eve on September 18 and October 10.

According to the statement, the second and third stages will take effect only after the morbidity rate decreases.
