In the light of continuously rising crime graph against Indians in the USA, a Gujarati woman was shot dead in South Carolina.

The victim identified as Mradulaben Patel was a co-owner of a gas station in Powdersville. The police sources said that it was a case of an attempted armed robbery and they have taken the video footage to identify the criminal.

‘The woman was shot in the face thrice and was left to die on the floor with blood all over her face,’ said Michael Wheat, who saw Patel lying on the floor as he walked into the store late at night.

Wheat rescued Patel and admitted her to the nearby hospital, where she succumbed to her injuries on Saturday night.

Officials said that a video footage shows a man walking into the store and buying a pack of cigars. Authorities are reviewing the surveillance footage that showed the suspect shooting Patel without taking any money.

The residents in the area said that Patel was a gentle woman and she never misbehaved with any person.

If the skies above North America seem quieter, it’s because of the massive drop in the bird population in the past 50 years. Birds.

A report in the journal Science says there are 3 billion fewer birds in the United States, Canada and Mexico than 1970 — a 29% drop.

Conservationists call it a widespread ecological crisis.

“One of the scary things about the results is that it is happening right under our eyes. We might not even notice it until it is too late,” lead author of the study Kenneth Rosenberg of Cornell University says.

More than 90% of the losses were among 12 species with the common house sparrow at the top of the list.

The experts blame the disappearance of natural meadows and grasslands in favor of farmland for the drop.

They also say pesticides are killing the insects that many birds use for food.

“We see fields of corn and other crops right up to the horizon. Everything is sanitized and mechanized. There’s no room left for birds, fauna, and nature,” Rosenberg said.

The study also cites free-roaming domestic cats and birds slamming into windows that reflect the sky.

But the study says the duck and goose population has actually grown since 1970 because of less hunting and more protective measures.

Ornithologists say the drop in bird populations can be reversed by simple measures including keeping pet cats inside, window treatments that can prevent birds flying into them, and avoiding pesticides and insecticides. (VOA)
