Woman and lover kill mother-in-law
Bengaluru: An illicit relationship that had lasted for four years ended in the murder of a witness, whom the accused considered a hindrance to their affair. In a cruel act spurred by the fear and guilt of being discovered, a 40-year-old woman and her paramour were arrested for the murder of the woman’s mother-in-law in JC Nagar police limits on Wednesday.
The deceased has been identified as Salimmunisa (62), who lived with her son Allah Bakash, his wife Parveen, and their children. The family resided in 1st cross, Ankappa Block, JC Nagar. Police said Salimmunisa was physically handicapped, and Parveen — who was a homemaker — had to take care of her.
Four years ago, Parveen met Rafiq (45), a scrap dealer, near her children’s school in Mavalli and the two began an illicit relationship. Rafiq would apparently come to Parveen’s house when her husband and children were away; and Parveen would lock her mother-in-law in her room from the outside.
Allah Bakash, who works as a luggage auto driver, reportedly found out about his wife’s affair a while ago and the two would have constant fights about the same. However, he did not know that Rafiq would come to his house when Parveen and Salimmunisa were alone.
Although Salimmunisa was locked inside the room whenever Parveen’s paramour would visit, she was unaware of the goings on between her daughter-in-law and Rafiq. However, Parveen was upset because she could not leave the house whenever she wanted and considered the 62-year-old a hindrance to her affair. With this in mind, the duo hatched a plan to eliminate Salimmunisa.
Around 5:30 pm on Wednesday, Allah Baksh dropped Parveen and his children at Parveen’s mother’s house in Shivajinagar. He later joined his family at 7:30 pm, and they headed back to their house in JC Nagar around 8:30 pm.
Upon reaching, they found the door slightly ajar and the house in complete darkness. Switching on the light, Allah Bakash found his mother slumped on the sofa as though asleep. When he tried to wake her, she did not respond. Realising she was dead; the couple laid out Salimmunisa’s body and called their relatives around 9:30 pm to inform them of the tragedy.

Forgers grab Rajendranagar land
Hyderabad: Yet another incident of land grabbing on the outskirts of the city has surfaced. This time, the land grabbers produced forged documents allotting 20 acres in Rajendranagar to a person who died more than three decades ago.
However, activists dug out the documents related to the death of the person and certified copies from the Government of India denying any issue of allotment orders to the dead person.
The history of the case goes back to the Independence era when a person named Motilal Chandumal was allotted several hundred acres under a displacement law. But he never claimed it. Chandumal later settled in Maharashtra and died in 1976.
According to K. Kondal Rao, a local activist for Dalits, the land bearing Survey Numbers 289-296 were allotted to Chandumal by the government, but it was later cancelled and pattas were issued to the peasants who had been the occupants.
Hassnananda, who has been accused of grabbing the land, is a local businessman. Several others are also involved in the case. The fate of Survey No. 288 was never decided. “They created forged allotment orders in the name of Chandumal and also mutated the same land to themselves using forged signatures of revenue officials,” Kondal Rao explained.
However, investigations revealed that Chandumal died in 1976 more than three decades before the act of forgery. Kondal Rao also pointed out that the allotment orders were dated on Gandhi Jayanti, a national holiday. No orders are issued on that day. Certified copies from government officials also proved the same.

Maradu sub-inspector A.B.

Police acted on a complaint of by one Bindu Satyajit from Maradu who had borrowed Rs20 lakh from Beena in 2001. She had repaid around Rs47 lakh which included interest.
However, Beena started harassing her demanding another Rs 28 lakh towards interest. When this continued for quite some time, Bindu complained to the City Police Commissioner and Maradu police swung into action.

College commission agent kidnapped
Chennai: A former student of a private engineering college on OMR and now working as a commission agent for bringing in students from the north was allegedly kidnapped from his house in Injambakkam early Thursday.
According to the police, Pankaj Kumar, who was bundled into a car from his house, had been bringing in students from his native state of Bihar on a commission basis. He was putting up a few students of the college in his house.
Rival gang of 15 youths behind agent’s kidnap
Early Thursday morning, a gang of 15 youths arrived in two cars and knocked on the door of his house  of Pankaj, a former student of a private engineering college on OMR and now working as a commission agent for bringing in students from the north.
When Pankaj opened the door, the gang members attacked him with a sickle. The students who were sleeping, woke up, hearing the noise, and were threatened at gun-point by the gang. The intruders pushed the students into a room before ta­king away Pankaj, who is the son of a businessman.
It was believed that Pankaj Kumar had a rival gang, engaged in a similar business of bringing in students from other states to certain engineering colleges. “We think that the rival gang, based in Kott­ivakkam, was behind the kidnapping because of a clash of business interests,” a senior police officer said. “We are hopeful of rescuing Pankaj toni­ght itself,” he added.
The suburban areas of Chennai have been witnessing regular clashes between gangs that are engaged in bringing in students from other states. Last year, the police ar­r­ested two youths with gu­ns from the same area after they were allegedly involved in a similar clash.

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.
