P9 E x p r e s s N e w s Se r v i c e @ New Delhi Curious case of vax allocation skew in some cities Sana S h a k i l @ New Delhi Amid reports of people who fail to get vaccination slots in major cities travelling to nearby districts and satellite towns for jabs, an interesting correlation of several smaller districts near big urban centres/state capitals being allocated an unusually high percentage of vaccination doses has emerged. Extensive CoWin app data analysis by this newspaper threw up this interesting phenomenon, but there are no clear answers as to why there is an allocation skew, though several officials confirmed the pattern of people from bigger urban centres going to satellite cities to get vaccinated. For instance, Meerut in UP, Hooghly and Howrah in West Bengal, Pune in Maharashtra, Alwar in Rajasthan and Panipat in Haryana received more doses than districts with higher population in their respective states. In Meerut, a tier-2 city located 100 kms from Delhi and considered a part of the Mom’s partner beats 1-year-old with firewood National Capital Region (NCR), 7.35 lakh doses were administered in a population of 34.43 lakh. However, there are at least 20 districts in UP with higher population that received lesser allocation. Take Sultanpur and Hardoi for example. The two districts have significantly larger population, but received only a third of the doses allocated to Meerut. Authorities say the situation is similar in Bulandshahar, another UP district adjoining Del- E x p r e s s N e w s Se r v i c e @Kozhikode A one-year-old girl was brutally beaten by her mother’s partner with a piece of firewood at Kanichar near Peravoor. The Kelakam police on Sunday arrested Puthenveettil Ratheesh, 39, and the girl’s mother, Vittayath Ramya, 24, under the Juvenile Justice Act in connection with the incident. Ratheesh, who belongs to Palukachi, Kottiyur, is learnt to have vented his ire on the child for having urinated inside the house. A case has been registered against Ramya, of Chengom, Kanichar, as she did not try to protect her child from being thrashed. The child, who suffered injuries to her head and face, is undergoing treatment at Kannur Medical College Hospital and her condition is said to be stable. The incident came to light when Ramya’s mother Sulochana came to the house to see the child on Saturday evening. On seeing the toddler injured badly Sulochana rushed her to the , Peravoor taluk hospital, police said. As the doctors found injuries on her head and face, the hospital authorities informed the police. Later, the girl was shifted to the Medical College Hospital. Kerala State Human Rights Commission chairman K V Manoj Kumar has ordered a detailed investigation into the incident. Ratheesh and Ramya, who had moved to the rented house in Chengom around three weeks ago, are reportedly in a live-in relationship. CPM state committee member and Kannur district secretary M V Jayarajan has come out strongly against the High Court verdict on the minority scholarship saying that the court did not consider the social realities of the state while pronouncing the order.
