The Tribune and the Asian Age feature prominently the Gurdwara shooter in the US, who has been identified. 'Headed a racist band, FBI launches probe' is the Tribune headline.

The death of Fiza, the estranged wife of former Haryana deputy chief minister is covered by almost all newspapers. 'Mystery end to turbulent life' says the Pioneer. 'Suicide or murder?' asks the Hindustan Times.

The supreme court pulling up Delhi and UP governments for failing to stop pollutants from flowing into the Yamuna finds place in the Indian Express.

Gopal Kanda, a Haryana minister, who quit, after an MDLR airlines airhostess committed suicide, finds space in the Tribune, the Indian Express, the Pioneer and Mail Today.

And finally, are you one of those who likes to snuggle in bed with a good book? Bad news for you. Days of hardbound and paper backs could soon be over. 'E-books overtake paperbacks in UK' writes the Times of India.
