Green Light for 29th state Telangana


Sentencing in the Batla House encounter case, creation of Telengana state and the chargesheet in IPL match-fixing scandal. Front pages of prominent dailies have covered these stories and more this morning.

"Shahzad spared gallows, slain cop's family gets shock of life" under this headline, the Pioneer reports that Shahzad Ahmad, lone convict and suspected IM operative, in the 2008 Batla House shootout has been given life term by a Delhi court. The paper adds that the family of slain inspector M C Sharma has expressed shock over the judgment saying, they were confident Shahzad would be given capital punishment.

"At 66, Mother India gets ready for her 29th baby", is a headline in The Times of India whereas, "Green Light for 29th state Telangana", reads a headline in the Tribune. The Statesman writes that CWC, Congress party's highest decision- making body has taken a call to carve a separate state of Telangana out of Andhra Pradesh. The Asian Age reports that this decision is all set to open up a Pandora's box giving momentum to the demands for creation of Vidarbha and Gorkhaland.

Under the headline, "Dawood, Sree in IPL charge sheet", Hindustan Times says, the charge sheet filed by Delhi Police in the IPL match-fixing scandal names Pakistan based underworld dons Dawood Ibrahim and Chhota Shakeel as the kingpins who hatched the conspiracy while asking the court to cancel bail given to Sreesanth, Chavan and 19 others.

And finally, in its bid to win the hearts of tribals residing in far flung areas of Maoist-infested Bastar region of Chhattisgarh, the CRPF in a tie-up with AIIMS, Raipur, has launched the concept of telemedicine under which patients are connected to doctors in the state capital, reports the Pioneer.
