86 years after Bhagat Singh's hanging, Pakistani lawyer seeks to establish his innocence
Eighty-six years after revolutionary Bhagat Singh was hanged for the murder of a British police officer, a Pakistani lawyer is fighting to prove the legendry Indian freedom fighter's innocence in a Lahore court. Advocate Imtiaz Rashid Qureshi filed a fresh petition yesterday in the Lahore High Court for the early hearing of his case to prove Singh's innocence. The division bench of the Lahore High Court had in February last year asked the chief justice of Pakistan to constitute a larger bench to hear the petition by Qureshi, who runs the Lahore-based Bhagat Singh Memorial Foundation. But no action has been taken yet.

Can't share Brahmaputra data but open for talks to resume Kailash Yatra: China
Post Doklam, China today said it cannot share with India the hydrological data of the Brahmaputra river due to upgradation of data collection station in Tibet but expressed readiness for talks to reopen the Nathu La pass in Sikkim for the Kailash-Mansarovar Yatra. China is expected to share hydrological data on the Sutlej and Brahmaputra rivers with India during the flood season of May 15 to June 15 under a bilateral expert-level mechanism established in 2006. "For long time we have conducted cooperation on the river data with the Indian side. But to upgrade and renovate the relevant station in the Chinese side, we do not have the conditions now to collect the relevant statistics of the river," Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said. Asked when will China provide the data, which was reportedly suspended due to the Doklam standoff, he said, "We will later consider that."
