PM Modi touched upon a range of key issues,  including COVID-19 pandemic,  trade,  South China Sea issue,  and stressed how ASEAN members play an important role in India's vision for the Indo-Pacific.  The 10-member nation's unity and centrality has always been an important priority for India,  he added. At least eight people were killed and several injured after a bus fell into a gorge in Doda district of India's northern Jammu and Kashmir territory on Thursday. Rescue teams immediately reached the site and pressed into action and the injured were rushed to hospitals. The Pakistan government has declared banned Islamist party TLP,  the Tehreek-i-Labbaik Pakistan as a militant outfit after at least four policemen were killed and hundreds wounded in fresh clashes on Wednesday. The government has also deployed paramilitary Rangers for 60 days to deal with TLP supporters protesting to demand expulsion of the French envoy over caricatures published in a magazine in France,  which they consider blasphemous. Locals in Gilgit Baltistan have lamented government apathy to develop infrastructure in the illegally-occupied region. They claim since the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf party came to power in Gilgit Baltistan,  no developmental work has been initiated and blame that the government is making no serious attempts to address the demands for even basic amenities,  leaving them to suffer. Afghanistan's hospitals are grappling with the fallout of its rapidly spreading economic crisis. In capital Kabul's main children's hospital,  the crumbling of country's health system can be seen in the eyes of the exhausted staff who have remained in the city,  ekeing out their fast-diminishing stocks of medicines.  The Nepal Supreme Court Chief Justice Cholendra Shumsher Rana,  has refused to resign from his post amidst allegations that he helped his brother-in-law secure a berth in Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba's Cabinet as a reward for invalidating the move of former prime minister K.P. Sharma Oli's government to dissolve Parliament twice,  triggering an unusual judicial crisis. 15 justices of the Supreme Court has asked him to quit in the face of recent controversy surrounding him. All Supreme Court justices have been boycotting benches starting Monday while the associations of lawyers also have decided not to show up in the hearings demanding Rana's resignation,  just as there are thousands of cases pending. Rana has rejected the charges labelled against him and even refused to resign from his post. In delight for food lovers,  an aircraft-themed restaurant,  re-modeled out of a passenger airplane,  has opened up in India's western Vadodara city.
