Prime Minister Narendra Modi will today meet Chief Ministers amid a surge in coronavirus cases. Maharashtra reported over 17,000 fresh COVID-19 cases for the first time since February 1, according to government data. West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee's comments about the Election Commission at a rally in Bankura on Tuesday has led to a sharp response from the poll body, which said her statements seeking meetings are "belittling" it. The National Investigation Agency, which is probing the recovery of an explosives-laden Scorpio SUV near industrialist Mukesh Ambani's residence in Mumbai last month, has seized a black Mercedes-Benz car, which allegedly was allegedly driven by cop Sachin Waze, arrested in the case. These are some of the top stories this morning.
