Kolkata Police solve twin murder, nab serial killer 3.8.2015
The Kolkata Police have stumbled upon its first serial killer in decades by cracking a case of double murder at a hotel in central Kolkata's Park Street in June. The police tracked and apprehended 24-year-old Ajay Pandit, from Jharkhand on July 10. During interrogation, they found he had murdered at least 25 people over the past few years. The city police had been groping in the dark after the bodies of a 22-year-old woman and an eight-year-old girl were recovered from the hotel on June 30. Although the prime suspect had used a voter ID card as identity proof to book the hotel room in which the bodies were found, it turned out to be somebody elses. The police managed to track down the card's original owner, Sambhunath Shaw, in Bihar, and got the description of the man who knocked him unconscious and stole the document. They nabbed Pandit from Jasidih in Jharkhand when his phone, which they were tracking, received a text message from a private satellite TV service. During interrogation, Pandit admitted ...

Bihar's 'big four' may shy away from polls 3.8.2015
With the Bihar Assembly elections just two months away, the big four leaders, including two former chief ministers and the present incumbent, may not throw their hat into the ring. Each of Lalu Prasad, Rabri Devi, Nitish Kumar, and the BJP's undeclared chief-ministerial candidate Sushil Kumar Modi has personal or legal compulsions. While Lalu has been barred from contesting any poll for six years from the day of his October 2013 conviction in the fodder scam, his wife and former chief minister Rabri Devi has said she does not wish to contest the polls this year. RJD sources attribute her decision to the baton being passed on to the next generation. "Lalu-Rabri's sons Tej Pratap and Tejaswi, and eldest daughter Misa Bharti are all set to contest the polls. Rabri, who served as chief minister from July 1997 to March 2005, is currently an MLC, and politically inactive after losing polls," said an RJD insider. The source recounted how she lost the 2010 Assembly polls from both constituencies she contested, ...
