Indian city plans to evict beggars

Officials in Hyderabad in southern India plan to offer citizens 500 rupees ($7.60 to identify beggars as part of an initiative to declare the city "beggar free" after 15 December.
 
The city's police commissioner has also declared a two-month ban on begging.
 
Critics say the move is due to a trip by US president's daughter Ivanka Trump, but officials deny this.
 
The past week has seen police in the city round up beggars outside places of worship, and bus and railway stations.
 
They are being sent to a rehabilitation center near Hyderabad's central prison. Trump will visit Hyderabad for the Global Entrepreneurship Summit on 28 and 29 November.
 
Hyderabad similarly saw beggars temporarily bundled out of the city when former US President Bill Clinton visited in March 2000.
