Chennai: An 18-year-old girl, working in a farmhouse in Kel­a­mbakkam in neighbouring Kancheepuram district, was found strangled to de­a­th Tuesday night. The dece­a­sed was identified as Sel­va­nayagi, daughter of Ra­ma­iah from Pud­ukottai. Ka­­nnan, who was a local ha­­ndyman, has been held for the murder. Police so­ur­c­es said she could have be­en killed in a possible at­te­mpt by the man to rape her.
The incident happened in the 30-plus acre farmhouse belonging to Paneer Sel­v­am, 55, who is running a bu­siness of landscaping st­ar hotels and corporate bu­il­d­ings. His wife Suguna to­ok care of the farmhouse, wh­ere the couple run a nu­rsery. The coupe also rears half-a-dozen dogs, which are set free at night.
On Tuesday night, around 8 pm, Selvanayagi had gone out to feed the dogs but did not return. As she failed to show up even after 45 min­u­t­es, Suguna went out in se­­arch of her and found Sel­va­nayagi dead in the backyard. After making initial enquiries, the police picked up a 25-year-old youth, Kannan, for enquiry.
“He was a regular visitor to the house and would do rep­air works. Only a kn­o­wn person could have entered the premises. Oth­er­wise, the dogs could have detected the strangers. The youth, however, is claiming that he never went to the farmhouse in the night,” the police said.

Shamshulla Uda
Bengaluru: A 65-year-old director of a credit co-operative society, who was also running Urdu and English weekly magazines, was found murdered with his throat slit at his office at Idgah Complex on Tannery Road on Wednesday morning.
The deceased, Shamshulla Uda, a resident of Bamboo Bazaar, is survived by his wife. The couple has no children. He was the director of Al-quds Minorities Credit Cooperative Society Ltd and editor of Makhzan, a weekly magazine.
Both the offices are located in Idgah Complex and Uda came to the office around 7.30 am on Wednesday. The murder came to light when computer operator Jiya Khan came to the office. He found Uda lying in a pool of blood and informed his family and police.
“The assailants have slit Uda’s throat and stabbed him several times. But no one has seen the assailants entering or leaving the office. We are investigating whether any financial matters related to the society led to the murder,” the police said.
His friend Saadiq said Uda was a social activist and had led recent protests against Amanath Cooperative Bank. “He had also deposited Rs 24 lakh with Amanath and was organising protests as the bank had frozen all transactions.
He had also spoken to some ministers to direct the bank to sort out issues. We suspect that his protests against the bank led to the murder.”
He said that the assailants have broken open the safe in the magazine office and taken away cash and gold jewellery belonging to the cooperative society. The police, however, said the value of the stolen articles is yet to be known.

I want to begin with a little story that was told to me by a leading executive at Aptech. He was exercising in a gym with a lot of younger people.

Shekhar Kapur’s Bandit Queen didn’t make the cut. Neither did Shaji Karun’s Piravi, which bagged 31 international awards.
