How the Rs 500 crore scam was busted


The BRICS Summit, in the backdrop of Indo-Pak tensions, receives prominent attention in the press this morning.
"China may carry Pakistan message to India at BRICS : Engage to break logjam" is the Indian Express headline. "Modi to meet Xi and Putin in Goa today" reports the Asian Age. Most papers also carry photographs of anti-aircraft guns on the beach near one of the venues of the summit. The Times of India captions it as "Sun, Sea, Sand and Security".
In its lead the Times of India quotes  Pak army as saying "News leak of rift with government a security breach".
"Air India posts Rupees 105 crore operating profit, first time in 10 years," reports The Financial Express.
"Militants attack SSB convoy on Srinagar outskirts, kill jawan, injure eight others" reports the Indian Express.
"Single-screens in 4 states bar films with Pak actors" is a front-page story in the Times of India.
"Delay in security nod will not stall visas for Pakistanis" reports the Hindu, as the Centre has given the Ministry of External Affairs permission to grant visa to an applicant if security clearance is not given in 60 days.
"Debate triple talaq, don't drag PM into it: Naidu to AIMPLB " states the Times of India.
On the raging feud in the Samajwadi Party's first family, the Hindustan Times reports "Mulayam refuses to back Akhilesh as CM candidate". The Pioneer cites him as saying "SP MLAs will decide who will be CM".
And finally, The Business Standard carries an interesting story on "Why the vast majority of women of India will never own a smart phone" as technology, promoted as a social equalizer, is having the opposite effect in the country.
