The Truck as Terror Murder Weapon Comes to New York City
From what I can tell, it seems like the driver of a truck ran into a school bus, and then shot people, and then ran over people. He was running around Chambers and somebody started to chase him, ' said a 14-year-old Stuyvesant student.

It seems the citizens have limited respite as of now, and needn't worry if they haven't updated their Aadhaar (if they have it) with their mobile or bank account numbers. The deadline for linkage of Aadhaar with SIM "cannot be modified by the government unilaterally (as it is fixed by the SC), said the government".

The directive was passed by a bench headed by chief justice Dipak Misra after it was informed by the Centre of its unwillingness to extend the deadline for linking Aadhaar to various schemes to 31 March and requesting a hearing instead.

The Centre had submitted an affidavit stating that Rule 2 (b) of the Prevention of Money Laundering (Maintenance of Records) Second Amendment Rules, 2017 requires Aadhaar for opening new bank accounts and verification of existing accounts. "For existing account holders, the deadline for Aadhaarbased verification is being extended to March 31 and no coercive action will be taken till then".

The Central government also asked mobile operators to re-verify existing prepaid and postpaid customers with the help of the 12-digit unique identity number.
