Around 200 Short Service Commission (SSC) officers with the Armed Forces Medical Services (AFMS), due for retirement over the next seven months, will get an extension till December 31, considering the current covid-19 condition in the Country.
Lieutenant General, Dr. Madhuri Kanitkar, who is part of the medical team under the Chief of Defence Staff, said they will be deployed for Covid-19 management programme initiated by the armed forces.
“Short Service Commission officers of the AFMS who are retiring in the next seven months will be given a unilateral extension. So, we have around 200 such medical officers, who were to retire, we will continue to have their services.” She said
The decision was taken after PM Narendra Modi talked to Chief of Defence and Army Chief. Many Army Hospitals have been assigned as designated Covid-19 Hospitals and are being run-up with State Administration.
Dr. Madhuri Kanitkar also said that the retired Medical officers of Armed Forces in the last 2 years may also be recalled for their services if required.
“Some of the SSC medical officers, who have recently retired from the armed forces, may also be roped in on a voluntary basis and used for Covid-19 management,” she said.
Security forces launch search operation in Samba
Security forces in Jammu and Kashmir launched a massive search operation in Samba district.
The search operation was launched after suspected drone activities were reported in three different areas of the district, last night.
Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Samba Rajesh Sharma said, “Drone activities were suspected at three different areas of Samba district, last night.”
The Border Security Force (BSF) also issued a statement that said, “Some unidentified lights were seen in the sky near the international border in the Samba sector. Few rounds were fired on it and the lights disappeared.”
Earlier on July 16, a drone that was operating around the Jammu Air Base was picked up by the radars of the anti-drone system deployed by the National Security Guard (NSG) there.
The NSG had deployed an anti-drone system in the city after a drone attack took place on the Jammu air base last month.
The Air Force has also taken measures to prevent any such attack in Jammu and other important airbases across the country. It has also taken strict measures to address threats from small drones.
After the Jammu attack, the number of drone sightings has gone up drastically and there have been several instances where the Army and Border Security Forces (BSF) troops at the border have fired at them.

23-year-old boxer Lovlina secures India’s 2nd medal at Tokyo Olympics
Young Indian boxer Lovlina Borgohain secured a second medal for India at the Tokyo Olympics with win over Chinese Taipei’s Nein-Chin Chen in the women’s welterweight category (64-69kg) on Friday (July 30). Lovlina, making her Olympics debut at Tokyo, has marched into the semifinals, assuring India of at least a bronze medal as both losing semifinalists are assured a medal.
However, India and Lovlina will be hoping for much more as he heads into the boxing semifinals. It is just the second medal for India at the Tokyo Olympics after Mirabai Chanu’s weightlifting silver medal.
The 23-year-old Assam boxer prevailed 4-1 to make the last-four where she will square off against reigning world champion Busenaz Surmeneli of Turkey, who hammered Anna Lysenko in her quarterfinal bout.
Borgohain, a two-time world championship bronze-medallist, displayed tremendous calm in the face of a plucky opponent, who had beaten her in the past. She was aggressive to start with, followed it up with a tremendous counter-attacking game and kept her defence tight in the final three minutes to emerge triumphant.
The youngster, who was laid low by COVID-19 last year and missed a training trip to Europe because of it, let out a huge scream after the referee raised her hand, pent up emotions finally getting the better of her.
