    News about the missing IAF plane are splashed on the front pages of most dailies this morning. "IAF plane goes missing over Bay of Bengal, 29 feared dead" says the Times of India. Under the headline, "AN-32 missing; 29 on board", the Tribune writes that the plane had reportedly developed at least three minor technical snags earlier this month.
    Newspapers have also widely reported the story of a video of Parliament posted on Facebook by Aam Aadmi Party lawmaker Bhagwant Mann. "How one Mann;s antics prompt security overhaul" reads a headline in Mail Today. The Statesman says, "Bhagwant Mann offers unconditional apology to Lok Sabha Speaker; House crippled over AAP MP's video". The Times of India reports that in a twin blow to Bhagwant Mann, Speaker Sumitra Mahajan refused to let him off with an apology for streaming a video showing Parliament's security pickets while his neighbour sought a change of seat in Lok Sabha, saying the AAP MP reeked of alcohol and it made him “nauseous".
