he was caught hiding like a rat in a drainage culvert, full of filth


The death of Muammar Gaddafi is the lead story in almost every paper. 'Dictator for 42 years, Gaddafi dies in a drain' writes the Times of India. Most dailies have a picture of an injured, dead Gaddafi, after his arrest in Sirte yesterday. The Tribune says 'he was caught hiding like a rat in a drainage culvert, full of filth'.

'Headley interrogation video clips released' is a Hindu headline. The Hindustan Times says that the 'FBI has yet to share Headley bank info with India - and the US silence on who funded his 9 recce trips makes Delhi suspicious'.

'Paid news claims first political scalp as EC disqualifies MLA' reports the Hindu, of UP MLA Umlesh Yadav. The paper writes of the historic verdict delivered by the EC, barring her from contesting for 3 years.

the front page of the Tribune and the sports pages of several dailies show Ravinder Jadeja, celebrating with MS Dhoni, 'India clinch thriller, seal ODI series' reads the caption.

Kiran Bedi is splashed across most dailies, for all the wrong reasons. Papers had reported yesterday how she had overcharged institutions by inflating her air travel bills. 'Cong rejects Bedi's no personal gain defence' writes the Hindustan Times. 'She's cornered' says Mail Today. The Indian Express has given a specific example of how Bedi charged business class air fare twice for one flight, as she was invited to speak at two institutions in Raipur'. However, the Times of India quotes her as saying that the inflated bills were not for personal gain, but for educating children.

The Supreme Court just saved you from a dark Diwali. A Times of India headline reads, 'SC to BSES - If you can't run discom, clear out'.
