Excitement at new cancer treatment


    The JNU row rages on in the Press.
    "Delhi Professor Geelani held, brawl breaks out over JNU" headlines the Hindustan Times. "JNU students, journalists thrashed by lawyers in court, as cops look on" is the lead in the Times of India. The paper also quotes LeT chief Hafiz Saeed as saying, tweet naming him and supporting JNU protests was from a fake handle.
    "Snapdeal executive stalked for a year before kidnap" is another front page story in the Hindustan Times. The Times of India says of the obsessed stalker, "He made 150 recces, bought 2 autos, then kidnapped her" and also claimed to be inspired by Shah Rukh Khan in the movie 'Darr'.
    "Judicial hierarchy comes under strain" as Madras High Court judge 'stays' Supreme Court order on his transfer; "Supreme Court authorises a freeze on his functions" report the Hindu and the Times of India, in another lead story in most papers.
    "India INC Giants may populate Bank Bureau" as Government is keen to rope in stalwarts like Ratan Tata and Narayan Murthy, leads the Economic Times. Of the biggest intra-day gain in  more than a year at the Sensex, the paper writes "Bears Calm Down After China Allays Currency Fears.
    The Pioneer writes " Domestic investors help Sensex make biggest day-gain in a year".
    "Mysuru and Capital's NDMC area in top 5 of cleanest cities" notes the Hindustan Times, according to an urban development ministry survey, called Swachh Survekshan. Least clean cities include Dhanbad, Ghaziabad and Varanasi, reports the Statesman.
    The Tribune states the Railways has formulated a plan to provide coolies with trolleys similar to ones at airports, at select railway stations with ramps to facilitate trolley movement.
    Climate change may slow down trans-atlantic flights, cites The Tribune of a new study that could have implications on the aviation industry.
    And finally, the Hindu reports, a team at the University of Utah led by an Indian-origin engineer has discovered a new 2D semi-conducting material for electronics that could result in speedier computers and smart phones that consume a lot less power.
