The Jammu and Kashmir Peoples Democratic Party today urged Governor N N Vohra to immediately book and arrest former minister and BJP leader Choudhary Lal Singh for his derogatory remarks against Kashmiri journalists, terming him a serious threat to the state's communal harmony. The state unit of the Congress too has condemned the former minister's remarks warning Kashmiri journalists to draw a line between reporting facts and supporting terrorists or face the fate of Rising Kashmir editor Shujaat Bukhari, who was shot dead by militants. Keeping in view Singh's continuous rants against the people of Kashmir and efforts to stoke the communal passions in the state, it is highly unfortunate that elements like him are allowed to roam freely, PDP general secretary Mansoor Hussain said in a statement here. "Kashmiri journalists have created an erroneous atmosphere and I would like to ask them to draw the line," Singh had told reporters in Jammu yesterday.

Former minister and senior BJP leader Choudhary Lal Singh has warned Kashmiri journalists to draw a line between reporting facts and supporting terrorists or face the fate of Rising Kashmir editor Shujaat Bukhari, who was shot dead by militants. Singh's statement drew condemnation from the Kashmir Editors Guild and political parties. The Jammu and Kashmir Peoples Democratic Party urged Governor N N Vohra to immediately book and arrest the former minister, while the National Conference said this was a brazen attempt to muzzle the media in Kashmir and that his "open threat" merited "immediate cognizance" by the state police. "Kashmiri journalists have created an erroneous atmosphere and I would like to ask them to draw the line," Singh had told reporters in Jammu yesterday. "You want to live like what happened to Basharat," he said in an apparent reference to Shujaat Bukhari.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi today hit out at the Congress, alleging that the opposition party's policy of votebank politics, by way of welfare schemes, was fading. He highlighted the progress made by the country in four years of NDA rule and said his government had built as many houses in four years which would have taken 20 years under the previous UPA government. He said the number of houses sanctioned under the NDA government was three times more than sanctioned during the UPA rule and in the next couple of years, another two crore would be built. "The Congress's votebank politics by way of different welfare schemes is fading," he claimed.

Vadodara teen who killed junior in toilet wanted school closed

News / Tribune/ Nation  
Manas Dasgupta Ahmedabad, June 23 With the arrest of a 17-year-old boy, the Gujarat Police on Saturday claimed to have solved the murder of a Vadodara student whose body was found in a school toilet on Friday. Mahesh, a student of the same school located in Baranpora area, had apparently followed the entire plot of a similar case in a Gurugram school last year. He told the police that he had no enmity with the Class-9 victim, Dev Tadvi, who happened to be present in the toilet when he had entered with the intention of killing someone just to ensure that the school closed down. The reason for his wishing the school closure was equally bizarre: he was angry just because his teacher had reprimanded him a couple of days ago for not doing his homework. Taking a cue from the Gurugram school case, Mahesh knew that if some student was found murdered, the school would be closed for some days. Mahesh admitted that he had come prepared for the murder...
