    Shraddha Walkar murder case has an element of love jihad: Assam CM

    Assam Chief Minister and BJP leader Himanta Biswa Sarma on Thursday claimed that the Mehrauli killing has an "element of love jihad" and said besides roads and electricity, security of daughters is a poll issue. Responding to a question on him raising the Shraddha Walkar murder case during the poll campaign and calling for a stringent law to prevent "love jihad", Sarma said the case relates to the security of women and also has an "element of love jihad". "...Aaftab brought Sharddha to Delhi for marriage. He cut her body into 35 pieces and put in the fridge...then he brought another woman in the same room...it relates to the security of women, it is related to the security of my daughter, and there is an element of love jihad," he said at the Times Now Summit here. Aaftab Amin Poonawala allegedly strangled Walkar (27) and sawed her body into 35 pieces, which he kept in a 300-litre fridge for almost three weeks at his residence in south Delhi's Mehrauli before dumping those across the city over several days past midnight. Walkar was allegedly killed in May.

    Walmart manager kills 6 in Virginia in another mass slaying

    A Walmart manager pulled out a handgun before a routine employee meeting and began firing wildly around the break room of a Virginia store, killing six co-workers in the nation's second high-profile mass shooting in four days, police and witnesses said. The gunman was dead when officers arrived late Tuesday at the store in Chesapeake, Virginia's second-largest city. Authorities said he apparently shot himself. Police were trying to determine a motive. One employee described watching “bodies drop” as the assailant fired, without saying a word. “He was just shooting all throughout the room. It didn't matter who he hit. He didn't say anything. He didn't look at anybody in any specific type of way," Briana Tyler, a Walmart employee, said Wednesday. Six people were also wounded in the shooting, which happened just after 10 p.m. as shoppers were stocking up ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday. Police said they believe about 50 people were in the store at the time.

    Those who support anti-India slogans have no right to seek votes: BJP leader attacks Arvind Kejriwal

    Using terms such as "Jhaduchhap" and "Chavannichhap" to describe AAP national convener Arvind Kejriwal, BJP leader Kailash Vijayvargiya on Thursday alleged that those who questioned the army's bravery and supported anti-India slogans at JNU have no right to seek votes. It is alleged that the BJP is a party of Hindus, he said at a Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) poll meeting in Burari and added "we are not a party of Hindus, we are a party of all the people". The high-stakes MCD elections, which will be held on December 4, is being seen as a three-way contest between the BJP, the Congress and the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP). "We work for all the 130 crore people in the country. (Prime Minister Narendra) Modi ji's slogan itself is 'Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas, Sabka Vishwas and Sabka Prayas' which includes all, the Hindus and the Muslims, everyone," the BJP general secretary said. He said under the Modi's leadership, the BJP government at the Centre has worked for the poor irrespective of religion or caste.

    Sessions court upholds order allowing framing of charges against two BJP leaders in 2008 case

    A sessions court here has upheld a magisterial court order to frame charges against BJP leaders Manoj Shokeen and Master Azad Singh for offences including assault or criminal force to deter a public servant from discharging his duty. Shokeen is a former MLA while Singh was the mayor of North Delhi. The court, however, directed the magisterial court to amend the charge for the offence of criminal intimidation. The sessions court was hearing Shokeen and Singh's revision petitions where they argued that the magisterial court's order to frame charges against them was not sustainable. "The order of the Metropolitan Magistrate, to the extent of framing charge under sections 186 (obstructing public servant in discharge of public functions) 353 (assault or criminal force to deter public servant from discharge of his duty), 332 (voluntarily causing hurt to deter public servant from his duty) and 34 (common intention) of the IPC (Indian Penal Code) is perfectly correct," Additional Sessions Judge Vikram said in an order dated November 10.

    The Supreme Court said on Thursday it will set up a fresh five-judge Constitution bench to hear the pleas challenging the constitutional validity of polygamy and 'nikah halala' among Muslims.
