Live news: Nagaland’s government has ordered a 'thorough probe' after security forces gunned down 11 civilians Saturday evening, mistaking daily-wage labourers as militants of a banned group.
The India Army said it "deeply regretted" the deaths. "A high-level SIT constituted by the State govt will thoroughly probe this incident to ensure justice to the bereaved families,” said home minister Amit Shah on Twitter, referring to special investigation team.

India reported its fourth case of Omicron on Saturday when a 33-year-old man who had travelled to Mumbai from South Africa via Dubai and Delhi late last month tested positive for the variant near Maharashtra’s capital.

Before that, a 72-yeard-old man who returned from Zimbabwe was found infected with Omicron in Gujarat's Jamnagar. India reported 8,603 new Covid-19 cases on Saturday, taking the total to 34.62 million. Deaths rose by 415 to 470,530.

Speculation in is "not healthy at all," said Finance Minister as she talked about a Bill the government will introduce before Parliament to regulate the digital assets.

The Bill prohibits all private in India, but allows exceptions to promote the underlying technology of cryptocurrency and its uses.

Odisha and West Bengal evacuated thousands of people living on the coast as they prepared for cyclonic storm Jawad that will hit the temple town of Puri Sunday afternoon after weakening over the sea.
