Union health minister JP Nadda has taken note of the incident and tweeted to offer his support to the family.

RAHUL GANDHI'S ELEVATION: The Rahul roadmap is here. The Congress Working Committee (CWC) on Monday announced the schedule for election of the next party president, paving the way for the elevation of Rahul Gandhi. On paper, the process will stretch from December 1 to December 19, but Rahul’s election as party chief to take over from his mother Sonia has been a foregone conclusion.

INDIA-SRI LANKA TEST MATCH: Virat Kohli may have shown why he is considered one of the best batsmen in world cricket at the moment, but his heroics wasn’t enough as Lankans hang on for a draw in the first Test against Sri Lanka at Eden Gardens on Monday. India almost pulled off a miraculous victory, thanks to Bhuvneshwar Kumar (4/8) and Mohammed Shami's (2/34) lion-hearted effort after Virat Kohli's 50th international ton helped the hosts set the visitors a stiff target of 231 runs. But in the end, it didn’t quite work out. The action will now move to Nagpur, with India holding the edge, ahead of the second Test starting Friday.

KASHMIR: Armed conflict in Jammu and Kashmir is almost three decades old, and over the years it has changed in scale, scope and character. However, one essential characteristic remains constant — the recourse to violence by a significantly large section of the society. Lt Gen (Retd) DS Hooda, former Northern Commander, Indian Army, under whose leadership India carried out surgical strikes against Pakistan in 2016, writes that the government narrative in J&K should focus on replacing fear with hope.
