Newspapers Headlines

    The terror attack in Bangladesh on Eid yesterday, close on the heels of the horrific attack in a cafe in Dhaka less than a week back, dominates the front pages. The Times of India reports "Terror strikes Bangla again, this time on Eid : 4 killed in blast, Shootout near prayer gathering".
    In the backdrop of reports that Islamic preacher Zakir Naik's speeches had inspired some of the terrorists who had attacked the Dhaka cafe, the Pioneer reports "Dhaka ultras' inspiration Naik faces Centre's heat, Maharashtra orders probe".
    The Prime Minister's visit to Mozambique is prominently noticed. In a front page story captioned "India looks to farm its pulses in Mozambique" the Hindustan Times writes that India will identify a network of farmers in Mozambique and help them with seeds and other farming improvements. India will then   buy back the produce from them at a price not less than the minimum support price of that produce in India.
    In its front page lead, the Hindu carries an interview with T Muivah, General Secretary of the Nationalist Socialist Council of Nagaland (IM) which signed a framework agreement with the Central government last year. The paper quotes him as saying "NSCN has not given up on sovereignty says Muivah".
    Is it a case of plagiarism or just inspiration? The Indian Express reports on its front page "Environment ministry's rules for polluters in India, copied word for word from the US : Three quarters of Environment Supplement Plan is cut-paste of US document".
    The Business Standard has some encouraging news on the Jan Dhan Yojana, the government's flagship programme on financial inclusion. The paper writes "Money flow into Jan Dhan accounts gathers pace: Direct Benefit transfer, overdraft facility are driving up balances in these accounts".
    And finally, news about the  perhaps the worlds most prolific car thief. The Hindustan Times reports about 77 year old Dhani Ram Mittal of Delhi who was recently arrested for the 25th time since he first landed in prison in 1964 for stealing a car.
