CBI hushes up Ishrat Jahan's terror link


The Supreme Court's direction to the Election Commission to frame rules regarding the content of party manifestos is prominently noticed on the front pages of most national dailies. "SC says freebies not good for fair polls, wants checks" sums up the Hindustan Times in its banner headline.

In the backdrop of the CBI filing a chargesheet in the Ishrat Jahan encounter case, the press highlights various concerns being raised about the case. The Hindu and the Hindustan Times highlight the testimony of a police witness mentioned in the chargesheet. He is reported to have said that he had heard accused Crime Branch DIG D G Vanzara tell his juniors that he had the approval of political bosses for the encounter. The Pioneer writes "CBI hushes up Ishrat's terror link".

The Supreme Court's intervention in tackling the problem of illegal occupation of government bungalows by MPs, MLAs and retired bureaucrats is widely noticed. "SC orders high and mighty to vacate : lays down 20 point guideline on evicting squatters in govt houses" reports the Mail Today. The Asian Age writes "SC sets a month for vacating govt houses".

All the dailies take note of the resignation of the Finance minister of Madhy Pradesh Raghavji over sexual harassment charges leveled against him by his domestic help.

Defence Minister A K Anthony's talks with his Chinese counterpart in Beijing are prominently noticed. "India -China agree to have strategic communication" reports the Tribune. The Times of India reports Mr Anthony as saying "Sino-Indian military games in October".

And finally, the Indian cricket team has a very new entrant. All the papers notice the inclusion of the first Kashmiri youth Parvez Rasool for the ODI tour of Zimbabwe.
