Delhi juvenile gang rapist freed amid protests - BBC News

Delhi juvenile gang rapist freed amid protests - BBC News


Most newspapers have focussed on the National Herald case hearing held yesterday. The Asian Age headline reads - "Sonia, Rahul get bail, vow to fight". The Indian Express reckons that Congress extracted mileage from the 7-minute-event in the story captioned - "Gandhis get bail, Congress a handle". "Cong projects routine bail as a win for Gandhi, tears into PM" is the Times of India headline. The Pioneer quotes the BJP as saying "Accused mustn't act like freedom fighters".

The Sunday Tribune reports that the Pravasi Divas - one of the pet projects of the government that was scheduled to be held in January next year - stands cancelled. Quoting sources, the paper adds that external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj was extremely unhappy with the preparations.

The Financial Express lead story quotes the Finance Minister as saying that the GST was unlikely to get passed in the current session of Parliament as a delayed GST is better than a flawed GST. However the government is all set to introduce the insolvency and bankruptcy Bill in this session, the paper adds.

Another Financial Express front page story captioned "Lingering Layoffs" raises concerns about large scale layoffs of staffers of startups, and says that according to a survey, 3270 employees lost their jobs in start ups in the last six months. The Economic Times also has a similar story captioned "Living with pink", which highlights that sackings are an inevitable part of start ups.

"Hackers route city firm's cash to `IS a|c" - the Times of India reports that suspected Islamic State  hackers may have routed a south Delhi-based firm's payments from a London client to the terror outfit's bank accounts in Turkey .

And finally, the Times of India reports that 17-yr-old Bengaluru boy Ishan Pandita, who once took a break from studies to pursue his passion for football, is on the verge of making it to a big European club. Ishan has taken baby steps towards international glory by becoming the first Indian to be part of the under-18 team of Spanish second-division club UD Almeria, which played in La Liga last season.
