Srinagar, Oct 20: On Tuesday following a raid, 44 people were arrested in Baramulla, Jammu and Kashmir. Among the materials seized were Chinese flags.
While Pakistan flags have been a regular feature in many parts of the Valley, finding Chinese flags is something new. Does this signal a new form of protest or is it just another gimmick?
Bengaluru, Oct 20: Janardhan Reddy, mining baron and former Karnataka minister does things that are usually larger than life. For his daughter, Brahmani’s wedding, he has sent out a unique wedding invitation with an LCD screen.
When the box opens up, you can see an LCD screen light on. A text first announces, “Brahmani weds Rajeev Reddy.” This is then followed by a full fledged video where Janardhan Reddy is seen singing ‘Atithi Devobhava’ along with his wife and son.
Bengaluru, Oct 20: ‘Kill Israelis and other tourists at Kodaikanal’- was a message sent on Telegram by Sajeer Abdulla from Kerala to six other ISIS recruits. The National Investigation Agency (NIA) had recently busted a South India based module of the ISIS and had arrested over 6 persons believed to be part of a major terror plot.
During the first round of the probe, it was found that this module had planned on carrying out a Nice-style attack. Further investigations conducted which went into the chat transcripts of the alleged recruits learnt that there was a far more sinister plot which included targeting Hindus and tourists at Kodaikanal.
Ahmed Zargar of the Al-Umar-Mujaheedin may be a forgotten name in India today. Just to recall, he was one of the terrorists who was released in exchange during the Khandahar hijack incident along with Maulana Masood Azhar.
While Azhar returned to Pakistan and launched the Jaish-e-Mohammad, Zargar was told to lie low. Today the man responsible for killing 40 Kashmiri Pandits is back in business after being told by the ISI to relaunch his activities in Jammu and Kashmir.
