RED TERROR: Red alert went unheard, Bastar toll climbs to 27


Many papers have published pictures of Saturday's mayhem in Chhattisgarh. "Red alert went unheard, Bastar toll climbs to 27", reads the lead headline of Hindustan Times. "Riddled with bullets, bodies of state congress president and son found near the site of ambush", writes Mail Today. "V C Shukla battling for life - 4 bullets taken out, one stuck in intestines", reports the Pioneer.

The Hindu and the Tribune have on their front pages pictures of the Mumbai Indians team celebrating their maiden IPL title win after beating Chennai Super Kings yesterday.

"Super Kings lose final but super boss holds on to crown - Weak-kneed BCCI falls in line as Srinivasan flatly refuses to quit", is the Times of India headline of the story. "Unable to muster members, 'revolt' meekly fizzles out", adds the paper. The Financial Express shows the BCCI boss at a press conference in Kolkata, where he announced setting up of a 3-member commission to probe allegations against his son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan.

Hindustan Times and the Statesman report that Delhi cops are likely to arrest four more players.

Is the heat getting to you? There might be some respite. "Thunderstorm and cloudy skies likely today", reports the Times of India. "Tempers soar as outages continue", writes the paper. The paper reports of a 68-year old man who has a hole in his lung and is dependant on a breathing apparatus for at least 18 hours a day; who is having to be shifted from home to home owing to erratic power supply.

There is hope for people suffering from bladder cancer, writes the Times of India. Now, a unique surgery, that replaces the diseased organ with an artificial one made from the small intestine seems to be an effective cure, reports the paper.

And finally, if you are a vegetarian and yet feel like tasting an egg sometimes, there may be good news for you. The Hindu business line and the Tribune report that a US company is now developing nutritious eggs from plant materials.
