Mountain guide gone missing into Karakoram peak for three days, family awaits; search operation launched

A mountain guide Pemba Sherpa who hails from Darjeeling when he was descending from the SASER Khangri peak in the Karakoram Range. He has been missing since 13 July.

Sherpa, who is a inhabitant of Gandhi Road locality in the town, had gone for an expedition organized by the Mountaineers Association Krishnagar (MAK).

An ITBP team started the rescue operation on Sunday.

Nima Tenzing, Sherpa’s nephew, said that his family came to know about the incident on Friday. “Someone from the expedition called my father at around 10.30 on Friday night, saying that an accident had taken place and that my uncle was missing while climbing down.

We have no other information. My uncle was an experienced climber and a good humoured person; we are worried about his safety and are praying that nothing bad has happened,” Tenzing was quoted by The Statesman as saying.

Sherpa’s brother Tashi Sherpa said that his brother was hired by the Krishnannager Club. “We left Darjeeling together on 19 June for Kolkata and the next day, we left for Karakoram. The climb was probably to start on 28 June, but I am not sure of it as I returned from the first base camp after I fell sick,” he said.

Saser Khangri is situated in Jammu and Kashmir which is the highest peak in Saser Muztagh, the easternmost sub-range of the Karakoram Range. The height of Saser Khangri IV is 7410 meters with climbers having to camp.

Sacred Games actors cannot be held liable for dialogues, says Delhi HC

ctors cannot be held liable for the dialogues they deliver, the Delhi high court said on Monday while hearing a plea filed against Netflix and the web series of Sacred Games for allegedly defaming former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi in an episode.

‘Why have you made the actor as a party to the case? Can we stop a viewpoint from being aired? Should we stall such a viewpoint from being aired? Shouldn’t the viewer make up his own point?’ the court said.

‘It’s already on air. What do we stop?’ it asked after Netflix’s lawyer Rajesh Gogna said that eight episodes of the series have already been broadcast and any more unlikely as of now.
The court also asked whether such private litigations can be entertained and said that this will have a larger implication.

‘Because there can be sometimes issues where we have seen the effect of social media and what consequences it has,’ the bench remarked.

An advocate Nikhil Bhalla had filed a petition seeking directions to ensure the removal of the allegedly offensive scenes and remarks made directly or indirectly against the former prime minister or his family. It alleged that the series incorrectly depicts historical events of the country.

Bhalla’s counsel said that there are two scenes where the English translation of the dialogue has a different derogatory word.

‘They have modified some but need to take out these scenes. It’s a scene against a former PM for now, what happens next? Would these be the standards that are aired,’ he contended.
