KSE aide kidnap bid: Cops may challenge advance bail granted to Yeddyurappa's PA 20.8.2017 Deccan Herald - City
The police may request the court to cancel the anticipatory bail granted to N R Santosh, relative-cum-personal assistant of state BJP president BS Yeddyurappa. "Santosh is not cooperating with the investigating team. He is making contradictory statements. He is denying his role despite police sharing strong evidences against him," said a police officer. The police have arrested 10 persons, including two rowdies, for attempting to abduct BJP leader K S Eshwarappa's personal assistant Vinay. Santosh has been claiming that he was not acquainted with the 10 suspects arrested, so far. The police consider it necessary to interrogate Santosh thoroughly and plan to arrest him. The police on Sunday detained Umakanth, a history-sheeter, on a body warrant for questioning in connection with the case. During the questioning, Umakanth claimed that he had met Santosh twice at Yeddyurappa's Dollars Colony residence. He stated that Rajendra Urs gave him supari in Santosh's presence to abduct Vinay and recover a pen drive ...

'Harassed' by police, rowdy ends life 20.8.2017 Deccan Herald - City
A 25-year-old history-sheeter reportedly committed suicide by consuming poison at his home in Indiranagar, East Bengaluru, on Sunday morning, purportedly due to "harassment" from police.

The deceased, Karthik, was arrested and jailed for attempted murder. He came out on bail recently. But the Bharathinagar police, on the "pretext" of questioning him, were harassing him, which drove him to suicide, his family suggested.

The Indiranagar police have registered a case over Karthiks suicide.

Economy@70: Came a long way, yet long road ahead 20.8.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Poet Robert Frost wrote, "Two roads diverged in a wood and I took the one less travelled by, and that has made all the difference." As a nation, we are at 70 years old now. We need to reflect upon how we have traversed through all these years. And for a nation, the economy is a sleigh that drives its existence. Seven decades after Independence, India is the fifth largest economy, in terms of nominal GDP and the third largest by purchasing power parity (PPP). India's post-Independence history can be broadly classified into phases -- Indian version of socialism for 30 years from 1950-51 to 1979-80, and India's experiments with free market economy since 1980. The country has seen abysmally low GDP growth. India's gross national income in absolute numbers has grown from a mere Rs 2,92,996 crore (constant terms) in 1950-51, to Rs 1,20,34,713 crore in 2016-17. The GDP numbers have grown from Rs 2,69,724 crore in 1950-51 to 1,06,86,776 crore presently. Despite the GDP growing by almost 39 times over these ...

No system in place to alert Bengaluru to disasters 19.8.2017 Deccan Herald - City
Worldwide, alerts go out ahead of extreme natural events. So why were citizens not alerted to the deluge in the city earlier this week? The simple answer: Bengaluru has no system in place to send out disaster alerts to people. In the early hours of Independence Day, Bengaluru received 128.7 mm of rainfall. In just a few hours, the city was flooded. And in that short, intense spell, the rainfall had exceeded the highest for August in recorded history. Records exist for 127 years, since 1890. Many government and municipal institutions are mandated with monitoring and preparing for natural disasters. What were they doing on August 15 then? Task force exists Bengaluru has a dedicated monsoon force called Be-Ready Bangalore Group. Few outside official circles have heard of it.
