New Delhi: The Tamil Nadu BJP chief Dr Tamilisai Soundararajan and former Union minister Bandaru Dattatreya were included in the list of five new Governors announced by President Ram Nath Kovind on Sunday.

Dr Soundararajan has been appointed the Governor of Telangana, while Bandaru Dattatreya has been put in charge of Himachal Pradesh, replacing Kalraj Mishra.

After being appointed as Governor of Himachal Pradesh, Bandaru Dattatreya said: “I am thankful to Prime Minister Narendra Modi as well as Home Minister Amit Shah that they have given this responsibility to me as the Governor of Himachal Pradesh and I will work as per the Constitution.”

However, Kalraj Mishra, who was the Governor of Himachal Pradesh, has been asked to take charge of Rajasthan, replacing Kalyan Singh. Besides, former Union minister Arif Mohammed Khan, who extended support to the incumbent government bill against Triple Talaq, has been appointed the Governor of Kerala and Bhagat Singh Koshyari as the Governor of Maharashtra.

On being appointed as the Governor of Kerala, Arif Mohammad Khan said: “It’s an opportunity to serve. I am fortunate to be born in a country like India which is so vast and rich in diversity. It’s a great opportunity for me to know this part of India, which forms boundary of India and also called god’s own country.”

Of the five states that got a new Governor, Maharashtra is the only one going for state elections later this year.

The apps are available on the Apple App Store as Beetle VPN, Buckler VPN, and Hat VPN Pro, Avast said.

These three apps have been downloaded over 420K, 271K, and 96K times, respectively, between April 2019 and May 2020, according to data from Sensor Tower, a mobile apps marketing intelligence and insights company.

“Fleeceware apps fall into a gray area, because they are not malicious per se, they simply charge users absurd amounts of money for weekly, monthly or yearly subscriptions for features that should be offered at much lower costs,” Nikolaos Chrysaidos, Head of Mobile Threats & Security at Avast, said in a statement.

The apps” all have high ratings, ranging from 4.6 to 4.8, and include enthusiastic reviews, all similarly written, which Avast considers may potentially be fake.
