‘What Was Government Doing For 2 Years?’ Sonia Gandhi On Augusta Scam

 With the BJP making it clear that it will target Sonia Gandhi in Parliament over alleged corruption in a deal to buy 12 helicopters for use by top politicians, her party, the Congress, has decided to retaliate with equal aggression.

“I have done nothing wrong. The government is there for two years, an inquiry is there. Why don’t they complete it as early as possible…and impartially?” asked Mrs Gandhi today after the scandal topped parliament’s agenda today...

Dawood Ibrahim Dying Of Gangrene? Buzz On Successor Already

A former police officer who investigated Mumbai’s underworld for many years has said that Dawood Ibrahim’s trusted lieutenant Chhota Shakeel is likely to be his successor if reports that India’s most wanted terrorist is dying of gangrene are true.

“Chhota Shakeel is likely to be Dawood’s successor since he is very aggressive,” said former Assistant Commissioner of Police Shamsher Khan Pathan, adding that he is “doubtful about his health.”

Well I’ve heard of a news cycle, but seriously! The Kohinoor story seems to be astride some kind of Ducati superbike.

On Tuesday afternoon I was called into a BBC television studio to discuss the Indian government’s decision not to seek the return of the diamond. The reasoning given for this, as reported by the media, was: “It was gifted to the East India Company by Maharajah Ranjit Singh.”

It was a short sentence containing a world of weirdness. The first part was wildly inaccurate. The second part was… well frankly supernatural and I can deal with the latter quickly and cleanly...

Britain’s Elizabeth II: From Princess to Queen, the world’s oldest reigning monarch  

Queen Elizabeth II marks her 90th birthday on Thursday 21st April 2016

They were staying in a remote part of Kenya on Feb. 6, 1952, when she was told that the king had died...
