She is survived by her husband Ashok Kumar and two sons, aged 11 and 15. So far as many as 45 patients have been reported in the Lamma Pind Area as well as neighbouring Isaian Mohalla where the disease has spread its tentacles due to bad sanitation arrangements. Area residents said the area was receiving contaminated water supply for the past many days, which was the prime reason for the bad state of health of the area residents. Ashok Kumar husband of Manjit Kaur said, “We first took the patient to PIMS, then to a local private hospital. At each of the places her health only deteriorated even though we spent a lot of money on her treatment. Eventually, seeing that her health was not improving, I sought Manjit Kaur, the victim her discharge from the private hospital as well as and took her to the local Civil Hospital where she died.” He said he spent a lot of money on her treatment, but was not satisfied with the healthcare she got.

The miscreants broke the wall of the adjoining chemist’s shop to enter the bank. They tried to cut the safe using cutters but failed in their attempt. The bank staff was informed about the incident by a shopkeeper at 7 am today. The cash and other valuables were found to be intact in the bank. The CCTV footage showed them entering the bank at 11.40 pm. Tribune News Service Jalandhar, July 28 The company running the controversial road-sweeping project in the city has suspended it due to the non-payment of its dues for the past six months. The company officials have threatened to wind up the project if part or whole of the pending c m y b amount of Rs 2 crore is not given to the firm. Officials at Lion Services, running the project in the city, said with no dues paid by the Municipal Corporation for the past six months, it was getting difficult for them to run the highly expensive project on a daily basis. He said the company was facing a lot of financial constraints, including daily fuel charges, trans- portation, workers’ salary and maintenance of highend mechanical roadsweeping machines. Though Mayor Sunil Jyoti had agreed to pay part payment of their pending amount within 15 days, it did not happen, and, hence, the company today gave the final ultimatum to either release the payment or else it would wind up its operations completely in the city.
