Attacker in UCLA murder-suicide fatally shot woman in Minnesota: police


    Most newspapers today lead with different stories. A story related to Bihar school toppers finds resonance on most front pages. The Hindustan Times headline reads "Bihar school toppers face retest after a TV show leaves red faces". The paper adds that after two toppers failed to answer even basic questions related to their subjects on a TV show, an unusual retest has been scheduled for seven toppers each from science and arts streams. The Pioneer headline on the same topic reads "Political science is about cooking, says topper!". "Are you for real, Bihar asks its Class 12 toppers", reads the Hindu headline.

    Pictures pertaining to the inauguration of Gotthard Base tunnel in Switzerland - the longest and deepest tunnel in the world also find prominence on the front pages of the Tribune, the Statesman and the Asian Age. The 2.3 kilometres deep tunnel took 17 years to complete, the papers mention.

    The Hindustan Times lead is headlined "India running from talks: says Pak". The paper quotes from Pakistani President Mamnoon Hussain's speech to the joint session of the Pakistani parliament. The paper adds that the remark has drawn a sharp response from New Delhi, that India had never shied away from talks.

    In a story headlined "Corridors of Power to Get a New Address", the Economic Times reports that a common secretariat is being planned in Lodhi Road in central Delhi at a cost of 20,000 crores rupees. PM Modi will take a final call on this soon, the paper adds.

    If you find Bollywood songs irritating, so does ISIS! In an interesting front page story The Pioneer reports that British special forces are playing Bollywood music as a new psychological warfare weapon against Islamic State terrorists in Libya. The Bollywood music is intended to annoy ISIS, which considers music un-Islamic, adds the paper.

    The Financial Express front page story reckons that after driverless cars, teacherless tuitions could be the next frontier. The paper reports about the existence of some chatbots on apps which could help you learn Maths  and English.

    In a strange story reminiscent of the Tom Hanks starrer "The Terminal", the Times of India reports that a "Man with fake ticket stayed at IGI for 10 days".
