Home hurray for Murray


The serial blasts in the temple town of Bodh Gaya in Bihar dominate todays headlines. "Himsa shatters Abode of Ahimsa" writes the Pioneer. Highlighting the low casualty figure, the Hindustan Times reports "Damp bombs and low crowd save day". The Tribune and the Hindu cite security experts as saying that this attack could be a spillover of sectarian violence between Rohingya Muslims and Buddhists in Myanmar.

Bahujan Samaj Party chief Mayawati's address at the Brahmin Bhaichara Sammelan in Lucknow is widely noticed. "Mayawati warns Brahmins against sectarian Modi" reports the Mail Today. The Tribune writes "Maya assures quota for poor across the board".

Most papers highlight Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah's address at a rally in central Kashmir. The Times of India reports him as saying "Dont test J&K patience, political solution is must". The Asian Age quotes him as saying "NC will never be part of NDA".

The Indian Express and the Times of India report that six naxalites were killed in an encounter with the police in Gadhchiroli district of Maharashtra. The papers draw attention to the fact that all the six naxalites killed were women.

The Satesman says that the Home Ministry has objected to  the hiking of the FDI cap in defence, space, telecom and some other areas citing security concerns.

In a major step to empower women in 'khaki' the government for the first time is going to recruit and commission women officers in the Border Security Force, BSF report the Hindustan Times and the Asian Age.

The Times of India highlights the miraculous escape of 305 passengers, including three Indians, when an Asiana Airlines flight crash landed at the Sanfransico Airport late Saturday night.

And finally, photographs of an elated Andy Murray kissing the Wimbledon trophy after he won the Men's singles title are prominently displayed in all the papers. "Home hurray for Murray" is how the Hindustan Times describes the win.
