The Law can't find Srini's son-in-law, but summons him


The papers today have carried stories on Indian Premier League spot-fixing scandal getting murkier with Mumbai police asking Gurunath Meiyappan, Chennai Super Kings boss to report to them by today and Pakistan empire Asad Rauf being removed from ICC' Champions Trophy. The Asian Age covers it under the headline "The Law can't find Srini's son-in-law, but summons him".

According to Hindustan Times Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi sent out an unusually blunt message to his party colleagues in Delhi, promising to be tougher than his mother in dealing with factionalism and indiscipline.

The Hindu writes that China has indicated it will go ahead with building infrastructure in Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir despite India's concerns, signing a memorandum of understanding with Pakistan on a transport corridor expected to pass through the disputed region.

"Noting last words made easy' reads the Times of India inside page headline. The paper elaborates that you need not be a police officer, doctor or a magistrate to record the dying declaration, a statement accusing those responsible for the death of a person making his last possible.

The Indian Express reports that faced with allegations of kickbacks in defence deals, particularly the VVIP chopper deal scandal, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said that the government is seeking to maintain 'probity' and 'transparency' in defence procurements even as he made a case for increased presence of the private sector in the defence manufacture field.

According to Mail Today German Chancellor Angela Merkel has been named as the most powerful woman in the world by Business Magazine Forbes for the third year running. Brazilian President Dilma Rouseff is second on the list and Melinda Gates, third. Congress President Sonia Gandhi and India-born Pepsico Chief Indra Nooyi figure among the Top 10.
