Chandigarh: Clearly aimed at getting political mileage against the ruling Shiromani Akali Dal-BJP alliance government in Punjab, Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi arrived in Faridkot district on Thursday to meet families of two victims of police firing last month.

Rahul, who arrived in Kotkapura town earlier in the dau, visited the house of police firing victim Gurjit Singh in Sarawa village first. He spent over 20 minutes with the victim’s family.

He then headed to meet the family of another victim in Behbal Khurd village.

Rahul was accompanied by Punjab Congress putting up a united show with state Congress President Pratap Singh Bajwa, former chief minister and deputy leader of the Congress in Lok Sabha Amarinder Singh, Puinjab Congress legislature party leader Sunil Jakhar, Indian Youth Congress President Amrinder Singh Raja Warring and former chief minister Rajinder Kaur Bhattal.

Two people were killed in alleged police firing in Behbal Kalan village last month during protests by Sikh activists.

The protests were against recent incidents of sacrilege of the Guru Granth Sahib in Punjab.

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.
