Greater Noida teen killer wanted food after getting arrested 11.12.2017 DNA: Urban Tales
Hunger and dehydration reportedly led the 16-year-old, who was absconding after killing his mother and sister in Greater Noida, into the police trap on Saturday. Senior police officers said that after losing all his money, the juvenile did not eat or drink for three days, while going from Simla to Varanasi. In fact, after being arrested, the first thing the teenager asked for was food. According to the police, after killing his mother Anjali Agarwal, 42, and sister Manikarnika, 11, in a high-rise apartment in Greater Noida, the boy travelled to five states – Delhi, Punjab, Himachal Pradesh, Jharkhand, and Uttar Pradesh, and Union Territory Chandigarh, between December 4 and 8, before finally being arrested from Varanasi.

Crisis-stricken Venezuelas inflation rate reached quadruple digits for the first time, according to figures released by the opposition-led Congress, which show consumer prices rising by 1,369% between January and November. The legislature, which this year began publishing its own inflation figures after the government stopped releasing them, said prices rose by 56.7% in November and estimated that 2017 inflation would top 2,000%. The OPEC member countrys once-thriving socialist economy has collapsed since the 2014 fall of oil prices, leaving millions unable to find basic food or medicine. President Nicolas Maduro blames the situation on an opposition-led "economic war."
