Centre cancels permit of four pesticides


The Delhi High Court acquittal of senior IPS officer R.K. Sharma,
prime accused in the infamous Shivani Bhatnagar murder case of 1999,
and of goons attacking senior lawyer and team Anna member-Prashant
Bhushan in his chamber, are the prominent stories in this morning's
Press. The Hindu writes that Life Termer R.K. Sharma was released from
Tihar Jail as the prosecution failed to prove charges against him. On
the Prashant Bhushan story, the Indian Express writes "For J&K views,
'Bhagat Singh Sena' goons beat up Bhushan".

"Give J&K more autonomy, say interlocutors", writes the Hindustan
Times on its front page. The panel submitted a roadmap for peace,
recommending autonomy for isolated regions, cross border interaction
and economic assistance.

The Economic Times headline reads "Centre cancels permit of four
pesticides" adding that the Agriculture Ministry has cancelled the
registration of certain pesticides manufactured by Dow Agro Sciences
India and some imported by Syngenta India over unethical practices.

The Hindustan Times writes that in one of its most damning charges in
the 2G scam, the CBI has alleged that former telecom Minister and
grand nephew of DMK Chief - M. Karunanidhi - had received 550 crore
rupees for forcing Aircel to sell out to Maxis Communications of
Malaysia. Maran had resigned from the Union Cabinet after his
interrogation in July this year.

The Mail Today reports in detail and with several photographs - of the
wedding of Bhutan's King - Jigme Khesar Wangchuck to Ashi Jetsun Pema,
a commoner whom he has known for some time. Bhutan is celebrating its
biggest event in a relaxed atmosphere and with minimalism, with
diplomats gathering from across the world.

With the inaugural Indian Grand Prix less than three weeks away, the
Sahara India Group has announced it's entry as a 42.5% equal stake
holder, along with liquor baron Vijay Mallya.
