Suspense over Rushdie Video Link continues

The big story in this morning press is of the Maharastra e'lite anti terrorism squad holding two men involved in planning and executing the July 13, 2011 serial bombings in Mumbai. '13/7 case cracked, but big fish still at large', writes the Times of India, with only the facilitators being arrested and the main conspirator still on the run.
The fourth mysterious death of yet another accused in the National Rural Health Mission scam in Uttar Pradesh is seen on the front pages, with the death, yesterday, of Sunil Verma, Resident Engineer in the Uttar Pradesh Jal Nigam, who allegedly shot himself in his Lucknow home. 'Rs 4,900 crore scam claims fourth life', is the first headline in the Hindustan Times. 'Key NRHM scam witness kills himself', writes the Asian Age.
The Asian Age writes, 'Russia hands over nuke submarine to India", which will bring immense strategic benefits to India as the country heads for 'nuclear triad capacity, (i.e., the ability to launch nuclear strikes from land, sea and air).
Now Supreme Court too favours equal NREGS and minimum wages', writes the Indian Express, with the Apex Court, yesterday, advising the Centre to consider harmonizing wages paid to National Rural Employment Guarantee Act workers with state minimum wages.
The Indian Express writes, 'P. Chidambaram, Montek deny rift over UIDAI project', with the Union Home MInister rejecting reports about a tussel with UIDAI on collection of bio-metric data for the Aadhaar Card Project.
'Suspense over Rushdie Video Link continues', writes the Statesman, with suspense growing on whether his video address will take place today at the Jaipur Literature Festival.
And finally, The Times Of India informs us that on account of research in Korea, some day in the near future, touch screen technology could be your doctor in detecting bimolecular matter, much as is done in medical tests.
