E x p r e s s N e w s Se r v i c e @ New Delhi Jab allocation inversely proportional to population S a n a S h a k i l @ New Delhi Amid reports of people from big cities making a beeline for smaller towns to get inoculated, an analysis CoWIN portal data by TNIE found vaccine allocation has been inversely proportional to population in several states. For instance, Meerut in UP, Hooghly and Howrah in West Bengal, Pune in Maharashtra, Alwar in Rajasthan and Panipat in Haryana received more doses than districts with high- er population in their respective states. In Meerut, a tier-2 city located 100 kms from Delhi and considered a part of the National Capital Region (NCR), 7.35 lakh doses were administered in a population of 34.43 lakh. However, there are at least 20 districts in UP with higher population that received lesser allocation. Take Sultanpur and Hardoi for example. The two districts have significantly larger population, but received only a third of the dose allocat- Woman’s partner beats 1-year-old with firewood ed to Meerut. Authorities say the situation is similar in Bulandshahar, another UP district adjoining Delhi. According to Bulandshahar district immunisation officer Dr Rohitash Yadav, the trend is most visible in vaccination centers at Khurja, Sikandarabad and Anupshahr. “Almost 15-20% beneficiaries in these three towns are actually from Delhi, Ghaziabad and Gautam Buddha Nagar. Owing to shortage of slots in their areas, they booked slots here,” he said. E x p r e s s N e w s Se r v i c e @Kozhikode A one-year-old girl was brutally beaten by her mother’s partner with a piece of firewood at Kanichar near Peravur. The Kelakam police on Sunday arrested Puthenveettil Ratheesh, 39, and the girl’s mother, Vittayath Ramya, 24, under the Juvenile Justice Act in connection with the incident. Ratheesh, who belongs to Palukachi, Kottiyur, is learnt to have vented his ire on the child for having urinated inside the house. A case has been registered against Ramya, of Chengom, Kanichar, as she did not try to protect her child from being thrashed. The child, who suffered injuries to her head and face, is undergoing treatment at Kannur Medical College Hospital and her condition is said to be stable. The incident came to light when Ramya’s mother Sulochana came to the house to see the child on Saturday evening. On seeing the toddler injured badly Sulochana rushed her to the , Peravur taluk hospital, police said. As the doctors found injuries on her head and face, the hospital authorities informed the police. Later, the girl was shifted to the Medical College Hospital. Kerala State Human Rights Commission chairman K V Manoj Kumar has ordered a detailed investigation into the incident. There are reports that Ratheesh and Ramya, who had moved to the rented house in Chengom around three weeks ago, are in a live-in relationship. CPM state committee member and Kannur district secretary M V Jayarajan has come out strongly against the High Court verdict on the minority scholarship saying that the court did not consider the social realities of the state while pronouncing the order. Addressing an online seminar titled ‘Minority welfare scheme: Court verdict and the facts’ organised by Kerala Muslim Jama’at, he said, unfortunately the court order will not , help in solving the backward- A s s o c i at ed p r e s s @Copenhagen DENMARK’S team doctor said Sunday that Christian Eriksen’s heart stopped and that “he was gone” before being resuscitated with a defibrillator at the European Championship.

And Alwar is not the most populous of Rajasthan’s 33 districts. Another example of this disparity was recorded in Pune. The city received 33 lakh doses against a population of nearly 94 lakh, but bigger agglomerates like Thane (over 1.1 crore population) received only 19.21 lakh doses.
