20-year-old gang-raped by friends

  • A 20-year-old girl became a victim of the worst form of serial abuse at the hands of her friends when her friends allegedly raped her for three continuous days at Manori.

    On Saturday, Pinky (name changed) had a fight with her boyfriend Sunny Singh. Upset, she went to a hookah parlour and met her friend Kritika. 

    According to Goregaon police officials, Kritika then coaxed Pinky to accompany her to Manori.

    In her statement, Pinky says that at Manori, Kritika's two friends Ali and Dhananjay were present, who then raped her repeatedly for three days. 

    Pinky's boyfriend Sunny said, "Pinky met Kritika, who then persuaded her to come to Manori." 

    From there, they left in a car, and on the way two guys sat in the same car, and Dhananjay, who is another accused, showed some card and said that he is a detection officer. 








    They then took her to Manori and raped her. 

    She returned on Wednesday. We came to the police station at 7.30 pm and waited till 11.30 pm because the police did not file a complaint. Only when I contacted the media, did they then file an FIR."

    "The investigation is on and now the matter will be transferred to Manori police station, as the crime occurred in their jurisdiction," said Inspector RL Kasbe of Goregaon police station.

    The accused are currently under police custody, and at 3 am, they were sent to Gorai for further investigations. 

    According to a police official, Pinky was also taken to a hospital in Gorai for the medical examination.

    Del Potro stuns Federer to win US Open men's title

  • Wednesday, September 16, 2009

  • New York: Juan Martin del Potro of Argentina battled back to beat five-times champion Roger Federer 3-6, 7-6, 4-6, 7-6, 6-2 and win the US Open title in a stunning surprise on Monday.


    The 20-year-old Argentine, who stayed alive by winning two tiebreaks, gained confidence as he moved through his first career Grand Slam and charged to victory, breaking Federer in the last game to end their four-hour, six-minute struggle.


    The 6-foot-6 Del Potro lay down on his back and covered his tear-streaked face with his hands after the 28-year-old Swiss sailed a backhand long on the Argentine's third championship point.


    "I had two dreams this week," the sixth-seeded Del Potro said at the trophy presentation.


    "One was to win the US Open and the other one is to be like Roger. One is done, but I need to improve a lot to be like you," he said, looking at Federer, winner of a record 15 major titles.


    "You fought until the final point. You are a great champion.


    "I'm very happy to be here with this crown, with these people, on this court ... This will be in my mind forever."


    Del Potro became the second Argentine to win the US men's crown, joining compatriot Guillermo Vilas, who won on clay in 1977, and was watching the final at Arthur Ashe Stadium.


    The Argentine had never beaten Federer in six previous meetings, losing to the Swiss master in the semi-finals of the French Open after taking a two sets to one lead.

    Ponting masterclass secures another win

  • Tuesday, September 15, 2009
  • NN


  • Ricky Ponting has already suffered the ignominy of surrendering the No. 1 Test ranking on this tour, but his final week in England may yet witness Australia's return to the summit of the 50-over game. Ponting produced his highest ever ODI total against England - a breathtaking innings of 126 from 109 deliveries - that provided the platform from which Australia launched a successful assault on England's intimidating 299.

    Nothing short of a 7-0 series whitewash will allow Australia to usurp the top-ranked South Africans entering the Champions Trophy, and Ponting's 27th career ODI century delivered them to within two wins of the feat. Australia's fifth consecutive victory over England was sealed when Mitchell Johnson blasted Ryan Sidebottom for a straight six with four wickets in hand and 10 balls remaining, however it was the imperious batting of Ponting that will be remembered as the tide-turner.

    The designated rest period has clearly done Ponting no harm. From the outset, his was an innings of sublime timing and intimidating power that England's bowlers could do little to repel. At one point, Ponting cuffed a Sidebottom delivery over the press box, but his most entertaining sequence came when he pounded consecutive sixes off Adil Rashid, who had the dubious honour of taking the second ball.

    Ponting's only moment of trepidation came on 35 when, facing Dimitri Mascarenhas, Matt Prior removed the bails with his foot in motion behind the crease. The third umpire, Nigel Llong, found in his favour, however, allowing Ponting to resume his third-wicket stand with Michael Clarke, which produced 123-runs.

    The Australians suffered a pair of setbacks when Tim Bresnan removed Tim Paine and Shane Watson, the latter for a well-struck 36 from 34 deliveries. But their exits drew Ponting and Clarke to the centre, and both appeared in an ominous mood from the outset. While Ponting powered out of the blocks, Clarke began his innings watchfully before steadily accelerating as the evening progressed. His penchant for scoring runs this series has not been in question, although his ability to do so quickly has emerged as a discussion point, particularly with the Twenty20 captaincy up for grabs. A return of 52 from 64 balls might not have ended the debate, but it did represent a higher gear than those which he has operated on thus far in the series.

    England were left to rue a poor fielding display that undid much of their earlier work with the bat. Australia's final pair of Cameron White (24 not out from 15 balls) and Johnson (18 not out from 12) were too often allowed charity runs in the closing overs, turning a potentially tense finale into a relatively docile stroll.

    Earlier, Eoin Morgan's flashing blade propelled England to their highest total of the series, and with it their best chance yet of ending Australia's fortnight of dominance. Morgan's frenetic innings of 58 from 41 deliveries featured an array of dazzling strokes, including powerful sixes to bring up England's 200 and his own half-century.

    England seemed set for another middle order stammer when Owais Shah departed in the 39th over with the total at 192 for 5, however Morgan's late-innings partnerships with Mascarenhas and Stuart Broad provided the hosts first with ballast, and later authority. The Dublin-born left-hander made his move between the 38th and 42nd overs during England's batting Powerplay, at which time the hosts advanced their total by 45 runs, then proceeded to frustrate the Australians with powerful and occasionally improvised strokeplay, such as his stunning reverse sweep to the boundary off Nathan Bracken.

    Bracken exacted revenge with his next delivery, though not before Morgan, who was dropped on 38 by juggling Michael Hussey at deep square-leg, had accelerated to his highest one-day international score since shifting allegiances from Ireland. At the time of his departure in the 48th over, England were well on course for a competitive total, and when Rashid blasted three boundaries from Johnson's final over, a intimidating score was in the books.

    England's middle-order resurgence may not have come in time to save the series, but it will provide team management with a sense of optimism ahead of the Champions Trophy. Too often England's batsmen have been contained and subsequently dismissed by Australia's bowlers over the past few weeks, but on an ideal batting surface the hosts managed a display befitting of an international-standard limited-overs side.

    Shoe attackat Indian home minister Chidambram 07 April 2009

  • Tuesday, April 7, 2009
  • NN


  • video


    A Sikh reporter threw a shoe at the Indian home minister during a news conference after he was angered over the minister's reply to a question.

    Palaniappan Chidambaram was speaking in Delhi about 1984 riots in which hundreds of Sikhs were killed.

    The minister leaned back to avoid the hurled shoe which narrowly missed him.

    Witnesses say the minister appeared unfazed by the attack which was similar to a shoe-throwing attack on former US President Bush in Iraq in December.

    'Issue is right'

    "Please take him away, gently, gently, gently, doesn't matter, please settle down, please settle down," a smiling Mr Chidambaram said as commotion broke out at the press conference.

    Correspondents say that the minister is the latest in a prominent line of world leaders who have been subjected to a shoe attack - considered an insult in India.

    Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao has also suffered the indignity. Mr Chidambaram moved out of the way as the trainer whistled past his head.

    The reporter was identified by local television channels as Jarnail Singh, a veteran correspondent with one of India's largest newspapers, the Hindi daily Dainik Jagran.

    He was taken away by plainclothes police who tried to stop him from speaking to other journalists. It is not clear whether he has been formally arrested.

    Soon afterwards, Mr Singh told TV news reporters that he regretted throwing the shoe but he felt that Mr Chidambaram was dodging the question.

    "I just wanted to ask him how justice will be done, but he was not interested in answering the questions," he told CNN-IBN during a telephone interview from police custody.

    "I don't think it was the right way, what I have done, but the issue is right."

    Witnesses say that the reporter took off a trainer and threw it after the minister began answering a question about a government investigation into two leaders from the minister's Congress party accused of leading rioters against Sikhs in 1984.

    The disturbances in Delhi were among the most violent in recent Indian history and happened after Prime Minister Indira Gandhi was assassinated by her Sikh bodyguards. Most of those killed were Sikhs.

    Mr Chidambaram had called the press briefing to launch a Congress party report on countering terrorism ahead of a general elections that begin on 16 April.

    The Iraqi journalist who threw a shoe at Mr Bush won worldwide fame but was jailed for three years earlier this month.
