  • After the attack of three, 18 lions will be watched for signs of aggression
  • Police will be observing their behavior, checking prints, and testing feces to look for signs of aggression towards humans
  • The Supreme Court stepped in to have them relocated

Eighteen Asiatic lions will be tried in the murder of three people in Gujarat. Police seem confident that they will be able to frame the lions. As punishment, one of the eighteen lions will be sentenced to life in a zoo. The rest of the eighteen will be released back into the wild.

Asiatic lions are on the endangered species list. There are about 400 lions remaining in the wild. Humans are intruding on their land; with this shared space roughly only 270 lions can be accommodated. The small space forces some of the lions to migrate, leading them straight into human-animal conflicts, said a Scroll.in report.

The investigators of the case have been following the lions’ behavior, and they believe that they have one guilty lion picked out. In an interview with BBC, wildlife expert Ruchi Dave said, “Man-eating lions usually get aggressive at the sight of a human being.” The investigators are still waiting for the results of nine other lions.

The Supreme Court stepped in and ordered for the animals to be relocated to other states. The lions have yet to be moved. Gujarat says the process will take 25 years (or more) to move the lions from the Gir National Park in Gujarat to the Kuno-Palpur Wildlife Sanctuary in Madhya Pradesh. The Prime Minister of Gujarat, Narendra Modi, opposes the relocation of the lions. Since the Supreme Court’s involvement in 2013, they directed the government to relocate the wild cats.

Facebook-owned WhatsApp has finally started rolling out end-to-end encrypted chat backups for iOS and Android users globally.

Facebook-owned WhatsApp has finally started rolling out end-to-end encrypted chat backups for iOS and Android users globally. With the new update, if a user chooses to back up his chat history with end-to-end encryption, it will be accessible only to him, and no one will be able to unlock the backup. Neither WhatsApp nor the backup service provider will be able to access their end-to-end encryption backup.
"With end-to-end encrypted backups, no other messaging service at WhatsApp's scale will provide this level of security for people's messages -- from sending and transit, to receiving and storing in the cloud," the company said in a post. The feature will be rolling out "slowly" for people on the latest version of the app.

Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication
While it may feel intuitive to keep adding expensive decor to your home to give it the luxurious touch, in today's ageless is really more. Simplifying your space can give your home a classy look. Invest in a few accent decor pieces - a lamp, wall art, decor for a centre table that are cohesive and work well together in the theme of your room as opposed to having numerous things that do not look like they belong together.

India may not see a billion smartphone users even by the end of this decade

India may not see a billion smartphone users even by the end of this decade and there are seven key challenges to achieve 100 per cent smartphone penetration, according to a new report. With the shrinking addressable base for smartphones, India is likely to have 887.4 million smartphone users by 2030, said the report by Gurugram-based market intelligence firm techARC.

The new smartphone user acquisition has been on a decline since 2018, after 4G drove switch to smartphones as it ushered several new use cases and forced feature phone users to upgrade. This, however, is not the case with 5G, which can substantially bring out a new use case for the mobile users compelling the feature phone users to move to a smartphone.

Affordability is the first concern even if users would discover their own use cases. "This is on account of both - investment in the device and the recurring data cost. Even to own a device, it's a substantial increase in the outlay for around 200-250 million users who cannot spent more than Rs 1,500 on a mobile device," said Faisal Kawoosa, Founder and Chief Analyst, techARC.
