The officer said one of the big reasons for rise in crime in the national capital is that unemployed youth staying in JJ clusters and unauthorised colonies adjacent to colonies of the opulent class resort to such activities after seeing the lifestyle of the rich that is replete with comfort and opulence.

They start harbouring the desire to become rich within a short period. This motivates them to try their hand at street crimes like snatching and robberies. Factors such as low income, unemployment and under employment, increasing charm of consumerism and materialism are the factors which continue to play their role behind the rising level of delinquency amongst the youths.

"The discovery of each new world provides a unique glimpse into the physics that play a role in planet formation," said lead author Jon Zink, a UCLA postdoctoral scholar.

An international team of astronomers has identified 366 new exoplanets, using data from the NASA Kepler Space Telescope's K2 mission. The findings, described in a paper published in the Astronomical Journal, showed a planetary system that comprises a star and at least two gas giant planets, each roughly the size of Saturn and located unusually close to one another.

The discovery is significant because it's rare to find gas giants -- like Saturn in the solar system -- as close to their host star as they were in this case. The researchers cannot yet explain why it occurred there, but it makes the finding especially useful because it could help scientists form a more accurate understanding of the parameters for how planets and planetary systems develop.
