New Delhi: An alert about the presence of suspected Jaish-e-Mohammed modules in the national capital had the Delhi Police conducting searches in different areas all of Wednesday night but without success.

Teams of the Delhi Police Special Cell and the Crime Branch carried out the all-night search operation in 15 districts of the city till 5 a.m. on Thursday.

The areas seached inluded Zafrabad, Seelampur and Welcome Colony in Northeast; Jamia Nagar and Okhla in South; Chandni Chowk, Chitli Kabar and Chandni Mahal in Old Delhi; several areas in East Delhi; and illegal colonies on the Yamuna Bank. Airports across north India have been placed on high alert and security has been enhanced, say officials.

An official said that anti-terrorist measures at railway and Metro stations and places with high footfall such as markets and malls have been intensified. Footage of CCTV cameras was being examined to monitor suspicious activities, the official added.

Intelligences sources say a special cell of the Delhi Police received an alert last evening about the presence of the terrorists in the capital. All four are said to be heavily armed. The alert led to searches across Delhi, especially in its more crowded neighbourhoods.

The threat was discussed at a meeting at Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s home this morning.

According to inputs received by the defence ministry and intelligence agencies, the terrorist group Jaish-e-Mohammed has been planning a fidayeen or suicide attack on airbases. The Bureau of Civil Aviation Security received a threat letter on September 10. The letter in Hindi is reportedly from one Shamsher Wani of Jaish and claims vengeance for the government’s Article 370 move.

Is your wife a cheerful person? If yes, then you are more likely to lead a healthier and longer life as compared to those who have less happy partners, reveals a new study.

The study, published in the journal Psychological Science, suggests that having a happy spouse not only leads to a longer marriage but also a longer and healthier life.

“The data shows that spousal life satisfaction was associated with mortality, regardless of individuals’ socioeconomic and demographic characteristics, or their physical health status,” said study author Olga Stavrova, a researcher at Tilburg University in the Netherlands.

For the study, the researchers studied about 4,400 US couples, aged over 50.

They observed that spouses’ life satisfaction was an even better predictor of participants’ mortality than participants’ own life satisfaction.

“The findings underscore the role of individuals’ immediate social environment in their health outcomes. Most importantly, it has the potential to extend our understanding of what makes up individuals’ ‘social environment’ by including the personality and well-being of individuals’ close ones,” said Stavrova.

“People who have a happy, active spouse, for example, are likely to have an active lifestyle themselves,” noted Stavrova.

The researchers pointed out that a partner’s life satisfaction may have important consequences for health and longevity.

“If your partner is depressed and wants to spend the evening eating chips in front of the TV — that’s how your evening will probably end up looking, as well.”

The study’s findings showed that greater partner life satisfaction was linked to participants’ lower mortality risk.
