Latest live news: A group representing retail traders will hold protests in some thousand Indian cities on Wednesday to protest e-commerce websites being used by criminals to sell drugs. A leader of the Confederation of All India Traders said Amazon India must face action as the police in Madhya Pradesh (MP) investigate a case where the e-commerce platform was allegedly used for smuggling marijuana.
Smugglers used the Amazon India platform to order and deliver the drug, which was listed under the guise of dry stevia leaves, a natural food sweetener. Three persons were arrested last week in the drug bust.
Cryptocurrency must be regulated and not banned: that was the consensus view in a meeting of a Parliamentary panel on Monday. The Standing Committee on Finance, chaired by BJP lawmaker Jayant Sinha, met stakeholders to discuss crypto currencies and risks from their trade.
The Supreme Court called for urgent restrictions on vehicles and industrial activities in and around Delhi to help clean some of the world’s dirtiest air. A bench headed by Chief Justice N V Ramana on Monday ordered the central and Delhi governments to decide steps in a day. These may include imposing work from home, or even a lockdown if needed.
