News / Mid-Day/ News  
A casual request to step aside during visarjan at Dadar chowpatty on Thursday night ended in the murder of an 18-year-old boy. Jagdish Kadam, a resident of Mankhurd, had come with his mandal for the immersion of the Durga idol. He was grievously injured after a boy attacked him with a broken beer bottle. Jagdish succumbed to injuries during the wee hours of Friday. The Shivaji Park police have registered a case of murder against three people and have arrested two of them. Around 1am on Friday, Kadam's group, Jai Bhavani Mahila Utsav Mandal, had reached Dadar with their idol for immersion. As they were reaching the waters, volunteers of the mandal asked bystanders to make way for them. Kadam also requested a few boys to move out of the way. However, around three or four youngsters refused to move away, leading to a heated argument between the youths and the mandal volunteers. Senior volunteers pacified everyone and took the idol for immersion. After 30 minutes, when the mandal volunt..

Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Saturday opened the gates to a "primary library" in a government school -- the first among 100 libraries which will be open for students in the coming days.

Taking to Twitter, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal lauded the initiative. Speaking with the teachers and students, Sisodia said that though these libraries are for small children, "if a small child gets active in the older ones, they too should come here and read story books". "Children's library is a great place to read and learn, understand and explain," Sisodia asserted as he went on to inaugurate ..

News / Mid-Day/ National  
After helping scores of women to call out sexual predators, the #MeToo movement has now given courage to the first male survivor to speak out against sexual harassment in the film and television industry. Actor Rahul Raj Singh has accused screenwriter and producer Mushtaq Shiekh of making repeated sexual advances towards him, and eventually ruining his career upon being rejected. Rahul was last in the news when he was arrested on charges of abetting the suicide of his actor girlfriend, Pratyusha Banerjee (of the Balika Vadhu fame), amid allegations that he had been an abusive partner. He is currently out on bail. "I have been an actor for the past 10 years, and have now been inspired by the women in our acting, film and TV fraternity to come out with my story of harassment by Mushtaq Shiekh," he told the media. Rahul met Mushtaq sometime in 2006, he said, when he was a model looking to break into acting. "I was the Grasim Mr India model in 2004, when I was 19 years old. A couple of ..

North Korean hacker group stole dollar 571 million in crypto attacks

7 hours ago  
News / Mid-Day/ News  
A North Korean hacking group called Lazarus has stolen cryptocurrencies worth more than half a billion this year. According to The Next Web that cited findings from the annual report of cybersecurity vendor Group-IB late on Friday, Lazarus was behind 14 hacking attacks on cryptocurrency exchanges since January 2017 -- stealing $571 million. Lazarus is a hacking group which has been linked to a string of attacks against everything from banks to government agencies across the world. Hackers targeted cryptocurrency exchanges with spear phishing, social engineering and malware. "Spear phishing remains the major vector of attack on corporate networks. For instance, fraudsters deliver malware under the cover of CV spam [with an attachment] that has a malware embedded in the document," the findings showed. Group-IB expects the number of targeted attacks on cryptocurrency exchanges to rise, and not just the ones from Lazarus. Nearly 10 per cent of the total funds raised by Initial Coin O..

The state-run oil marketing companies (OMCs) cut the prices of key domestic transportation fuels -- petrol and diesel -- for the third consecutive day on Saturday. The prices of petrol and diesel were lowered in the national capital by 39 and 12 paise respectively. According to the IndianOil Corp data, petrol was priced at Rs 81.99 per litre in the national capital, down from Rs 82.38 on Friday.

In tandem with petrol, the cost of diesel declined on Saturday across all metros in a range of 12-13 paise. On Saturday, the diesel..

9 hours ago  
News / Mid-Day/ National  
Congress President Rahul Gandhi kicked off his party's election campaign in Telangana by targeting both Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chief Minister K. Chandrashekhar Rao by accusing them both of indulging in corruption. Promising to build 'new Telangana', he addressed a massive public meeting at Bhainsa town in Adilabad district, where he told people that five years were wasted as Chief Minister Rao shattered the dreams of the new state. Gandhi said it was only KCR's family which "cornered" all the benefits. He said only Congress could build a Telangana which is free from corruption and farmers' suicides. On his first visit to Telangana after the announcement of the poll schedule, Gandhi was scheduled to address public meetings in Kamareddy and Hyderabad later in the day. The Congress chief told the gathering at Bhaina that governments of both Modi and KCR were on their way out. He also alleged that KCR insulted B.R.
