AI cancels Gaikwad booking yet again
Shiv Sena MP Ravindra Gaikwad today again tried to book tickets on Air India flights, but the airline rejected the booking.
This is the seventh attempt on the part of the Sena MP to book a flight on Air India, which barred him from flying after he assaulted the airline's staffer.
"There was an attempt to book a ticket at 5 AM today through our web portal. The reservations were being made for March 17 for travel from Delhi to Mumbai and for 24 March from Mumbai to Delhi," said an airline source.
The ticket was being booked under the name 'Ravindra Gaikwad' and we were alerted through our tracker, the source said.
The MP has also made an attempt each to book an IndiGo flight as well as a SpiceJet flight since the flying ban on him by all domestic carriers was put in place.
Syria calls airstrike 'American aggression'
Damascus, April 7 (IANS) The US has struck an airbase in Syria's central region and caused losses, a military source said on Friday.
The Thursday night attack targeted the Shairat military base in the central Homs province, the source told Xinhua news agency.
The state TV called the attack an "American aggression".
The US launched 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles at the airbase from which the aircraft that carried out the chemical strikes earlier this week took off, CNN said.
The extent of losses remained unknown, the source said, adding that the army's general command is awaiting reports from Homs.
The strike marked the US response to the chemical attack on rebel-held town of Khan Sheikhoun in Idlib province, reports said.
Washington has accused the Syrian Army of being behind the toxic attack that killed over 70 including many children, an allegation totally denied by Damascus.
