April 18: The buzz in Noida, Ghaziabad and Gurugram

Here are City Spidey's top five picks from the National Capital Region (NCR):


Admin. to monitor tuition fee hike: As complaints against private schools in the city over arbitrary increase in the tuition fee are pouring in, the district administration has decided to monitor the situation. A five-member committee, formed to look into the matter, will study the fee hike by each private school. If any school is found to have hiked the tuition fee without a valid ground, the administration will ask to roll back.

Protest at DND flyover: Protestors, under the banner of Maulik Bharat, demanded abolition of the toll collection at the DND Flyway toll plaza on Saturday. They called the toll fee illegal as the operator, they said, has already collected the money invested in the project. The 100- member strong group of residents marched from Rajnigandha Chowk in Sector 16 to the DND Flyway. On reaching the toll plaza, they forced free passage to vehicles for around 25 minutes.


Robbers stab Nepali trader to death: In an incident that reflects how bold the criminals have become in the city, two brothers from Nepal were stabbed by robbers at Adarsh Nagar in Khoda late on Saturday. While the elder brother, a trader, succumbed to his injuries on Sunday, the younger brother is stable. The incident occured when the brothers duo resisted robbery attempt. Police are examining CCTV footage to ascertain the identity of the attackers.

Two of a family die as car overturns: In a road mishap, a 70-year-old retired principal of a government school and his 48-year-old nephew were killed on Saturday when their Tata Indigo overturned while trying to avoid hitting a nilgai in Loni. Two other members of their family sustained injuries.


Another round of digging: With the HSIIDC set to start work on laying footpaths across phases I, II, and III of Udyog Vihar industrial estate, residents are in for enormous inconvenience caused due to the digging activity being undertaken to lay transmission lines. The move is necessitated by the zero-outage grid being built in the city. The streets and pavements will be dismantled, second time within a couple of years, before being built all over again.
