Bhopal: External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Sunday met Ramzan, a 14-year-old Pakistani boy staying at an orphanage here in the Madhya Pradesh capital, and urged the neighboring country to help the boy meet his mother.

India wants Ramzan to go to his mother in Karachi. Pakistan will have to accept that Ramzan is Pakistan’s citizen. Even if there is no permit and travel documents, the Indian government is ready to give Visa to Ramzan’s mother,

Ramzan, a resident of Karachi, was living with his parents. However, due to strained relations with his mother, his father left for Bangladesh along with him, only to marry another woman.

According to sources, on being ill-treated continuously by his step-mother, Ramzan fled his home and through various routes reached Bhopal.

On finding him abandoned, members of Child Line, a child-care center, brought him to the orphanage.

Reports said Sushma Swaraj will on Monday visit Indore where she will meet Geeta, who, after a decade, returned to India after being handed over to the Indian authorities by Pakistan.

Geeta was around 11 years old when she crossed over to Pakistan by mistake in 2003.

In Lahore, Pakistan Rangers handed her over to the Edhi Foundation, a social welfare organization, that looked after her since then. She returned to India on October 26.

The Indian government has asked Apple to provide information for 27 devices and 18 accounts in the January-June 2018 period, with the company providing data in most of the cases owing to an iTunes Gift Card fraud investigation.

The number of government requests — in various formats such as subpoenas, court orders, warrants or other valid legal requests — also included 34 financial identifiers and three emergency requests, Apple said in its Transparency report released late Monday.

For device requests, Apple provided data to the Indian government in 63 per cent of cases and 85 per cent in the cases related to financial identifiers.

“The high number of financial identifiers were specified in requests predominantly due to an iTunes Gift Card fraud investigation,” said Apple.

“One request may contain one or multiple identifiers. We count the number of identifiers identified in each request and report the total number of identifiers by type (Device, Financial Identifier, Account),” the company added.

For account requests, Apple provided data in 78 per cent of cases and for all the three emergency requests.

Keeping with global trends, Apple has launched a new transparency report website which makes it easier to see data requests from various governments.
