Cyclonic storm Phailin, the strongest to hit India in more than a decade and classified as 'very severe' so far, is closing in towards coastal Odisha and Andhra Pradesh at wind speeds averaging 200-220 km per hour and is expected to hit the two states between 6 pm and 8 pm tonight. The storm, likely to affect around 1.2 crore people, has triggered mass exodus in at least seven districts of the two states.

The Court will issue the ruling on 3 October. The convicted Christians are held responsible for the murder of Hindu leader Laxamananda Saraswati, who unleashed the violent anti-Christian persecutions of 2008. The Maoists have claimed responsibility for the murder from the beginning, but the state authorities have always ignored the admission of liability.
