his is the Catch Up on 3 Things for the Indian Express and I'm Flora Swain.
It’s the 14th of June and here are the top stories of the week.

In the midst of a controversy over the NEET-UG results declared on 4th of June, including allegations of a paper leak, Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan said that there was no evidence of a paper leak. NTA and the Union Education Ministry formed a committee last week to review the normalisation policy that was adopted for over 1,563 candidates who were awarded “grace marks” to compensate for the “loss of time” suffered while appearing for this year’s NEET UG.

Kannada film star Darshan Thoogudeepa and nine others were taken into custody on Tuesday morning in connection with a murder that took place in Bengaluru. The police on Sunday had recovered the dead body of a man from a drain and identified the deceased as Renukaswamy. Bengaluru City Police Commissioner B Dayananda said that it is alleged that Renukaswamy was sending abusive messages and comments to Pavithra Gowda, who is in relationship with Darshan.

As many as fifty people have been detained so far in connection with the recent terror attack on a bus ferrying pilgrims in Reasi district of Jammu and Kashmir. Nine pilgrims were killed and over 41 injured after terrorists fired on their bus in Reasi, which resulted in the vehicle plunging into a gorge. Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday chaired a review meeting of the security situation in Jammu and Kashmir, wherein he was apprised of the counter-terror efforts being undertaken in the Union Territory. The meeting comes in the wake of four militant attacks in three days in the region.

This week, apart from Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his cabinet of ministers taking oath, TDP supremo N Chandrababu Naidu in Andhra Pradesh, four-time MLA Mohan Majhi in Odisha and BJP leader Pema Khandu in Arunachal Pradesh were sworn-in as Chief Minister ministers along with their respective council of ministers.

Kuwaiti authorities have identified the bodies of 45 Indians and three Filipino nationals killed in the tragic fire incident in a building housing foreign workers in the Gulf Kingdom. The number of people from Kerala who died in the Kuwait fire tragedy has risen to 24, while five deceased victims are from Tamil Nadu. The blaze erupted early on Wednesday morning in southern Kuwait’s Mangaf area claiming 49 lives and injured 50 others. Kuwait’s Foreign Minister assured full support to the Indians affected in the fire and vowed to promptly investigate the tragedy, hours after meeting Indian Minister of State for External Affairs Kirti Vardhan Singh.
