In a major relief to three condemned prisoners in the Rajiv Gandhi assassination case, the Supreme Court today commuted their death sentence to life imprisonment on the ground of 11 years delay in deciding their mercy plea by the Centre.

A bench headed by Chief Justice P Sathasivam rejected the Centre’s submission that there was no unreasonable delay in deciding their mercy plea and the condemned prisoners did not go through agonising experience as they were enjoying life behind the bars.

It’s now Operation Modi for Arvind Kejriwal- BL

February 17, 2014 at 5:49 pm

New Delhi, February 17:

Pehle Shiela haari hai, ab Modi ki baari hai” was the slogan that rang out on the rainy evening that AAP founder Arvind Kejriwal renounced the Delhi Chief Minister’s chair and took charge of his party’s Lok Sabha campaign.

In the two days since Kejriwal’s resignation, AAP has announced its first list of candidates and simultaneously stepped up the rhetoric against Modi. While the candidates’ list itself prominently targeted the Congress bigwigs by pitting Kumar Vishwas, Ashutosh and HS Phoolka against Rahul Gandhi, Kapil Sibal and Manish Tiwari, respectively, the BJP remained AAP leaders’ stated target. In a series of tweets and interviews, Kejriwal mounted a multi-pronged attack on the BJP, particularly Narendra Modi.

It’s just 5.30 am and the sun is yet to rise. But in front of a decrepit building outside South Mumbai’s Grant Road railway station, early birds have made a beeline to get the taste of what could be their last mawa cake. These buttery, cardamom-infused cakes wrapped in wax paper have long been a staple in Irani Cafes.
