  1. WASHINGTON: Police arrested a gunman suspected of killing three people and wounding two Wednesday at a suburban Maryland business park before shooting another man in neighbouring Delaware. "The suspect in this incident has been located and is in police custody," the Wilmington, Delaware police department said of Radee Prince, 37. Wilmington Police Chief Robert Tracy earlier told reporters that Prince "is a dangerous individual. This person shot six people in one day" in attacks that were not random. Prince had been sought "in connection with both multiple shooting incident early this morning in Edgewood, Maryland and another shooting incident at mid-morning today" in Wilmington, Delaware, a statement from police said. Harford County Sheriff Jeffrey Gahler said three people died in the first incident at a granite business just before 9am. He confirmed a handgun was used and two other victims were transported to trauma centres in serious condition. When the shooter was still at large, several Edgewood-area schools were placed on lockdown, officials said, while the nearby set of popular Netflix show House of Cards was also reportedly secured. Gahler said Prince was associated with the company, Advanced Granite Solutions, where the first shooting occurred, near Baltimore. "This does appear to be a targeted attack, limited to that business," he said. Latest mass shooting Police were investigating Prince's connection with the firm, where all five victims of the first shooting were employed, Gahler said, declining to give further details about them. He said other people besides the five victims were on the premises when the shooting took place. Tracy said the victim in the second shooting identified the gunman. "They're known to each other and they've had some past history," he told a news conference. The suspect fled the first attack in a car registered in Delaware, Gahler said. Variety magazine reported that the set of House of Cards, which is partly filmed in Maryland, was placed on lockdown while police searched for the shooter. The executive producer of the series, Dana Brunetti, addressed the incident in a Facebook post. "Shooting near House of Cards set," Brunetti wrote. Some of the school lockdowns were later lifted, according to Harford County Public Schools. The incident was the latest mass shooting in a country where such killings have become tragically commonplace. On Oct 1, a gunman in a 32nd-floor casino hotel room rained fire down on concert-goers in Las Vegas, killing 58 and wounding more than 500. It was the deadliest shooting in recent US history. To date in 2017 there have been 286 mass shootings ? nearly one per day ? according to the online Gun Violence Archive.
  2. Mufti Abdul Qavi. Photo: File MULTAN: A sessions court on Wednesday dismissed the bail request of Mufti Abdul Qavi and ordered police to arrest him in connection with the murder of model and social media star Qandeel Baloch. Qavi appeared in the hearing conducted by Sessions Judge Chaudhry Amin and applied for bail through his lawyer, who also presented his arguments in the case. The court then reserved the verdict in the case and after resuming the hearing, dismissed Qavi?s bail application and ordered the police to arrest him. However, Qavi had left for home during the break and police have yet to arrest him. Talking to Geo News in the premises of the court, Qavi said that he has nothing to do with the murder and "the judge is also aware of that". He, however, added that he will accept the court?s decision. Qandeel Baloch murder: Investigation officer dismissed CPO Multan dismissed sub-inspector Noor Akber upon failure to submit charge-sheet to the court The court on Tuesday had adjourned the hearing to today after Qavi appeared without legal counsel and was asked to appear again on Wednesday with legal representation. Qavi told journalists following his appearance that he appeared today, will appear tomorrow and will continue to cooperate with the police and the courts. Earlier non-bailable arrest warrants had been issued for the cleric on request of the investigation officer who informed the court that the cleric was not cooperating with the police. Qavi had at the time told Geo News, that he was always present in his seminary and was available for any cooperation the police wanted, adding that he had obtained interim bail and therefore could not be arrested. Other accused in the case are Haq Nawaz and Qandeel's brother Muhammed Waseem. Qandeel Baloch murder case: Police gains access to Mufti Abdul Qavi's mobile data The records also showed that telephonic contact between the two took place even before June 22 Qandeel Baloch Baloch, who shot to fame for her "bold" selfies that polarised Pakistan, was allegedly strangled in July by her brother Muhammad Waseem. In his confession, Waseem claimed she had brought shame on the family and owned up to his crime in a press conference after his arrest. Prior to her death, Baloch, whose real name was Fauzia Azeem, spoke of worries about her safety and had appealed to the interior ministry to provide her with security. She had faced frequent abuse and death threats. The so-called 'honour-killing' had sent shockwaves across the country and triggered an outpouring of grief on social media for Baloch.

  4. PTI Chairman Imran Khan - File Photo ISLAMABAD: The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) has sent the non-bailable arrest warrant for Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan to SSP operations. The warrant directs SSP Operations Islamabad to arrest Imran Khan and produce him before the commission on October 26 at 10 AM. The warrant which lists Khan?s Bani Gala and the PTI?s Central Office addresses states that the PTI chairman is charged with contempt of Election Commission of Pakistan under section 103-A of the Representation of the People Act, 1976. It adds that Khan had failed to appear before the Commission on various hearings, therefore, the Election Commission has ordered the issuance of a warrant of arrest against him. ECP on October 12, issued Imran Khan?s non-bailable arrest warrant in relation to the contempt of court case against him. The PTI had announced that it would challenge the decision in the Islamabad High Court. This is not the first time the ECP has issued warrants for the PTI chairman. On September 14, the ECP had issued bailable warrants against Imran to ensure his presence in the case. The ECP had ordered Imran to submit a surety bond of Rs100,000 until September 25 and nominate two persons who would ensure payment of the amount and be held responsible otherwise. Imran was also ordered to appear on that day in the commission in person. However, the PTI approached the IHC which, on September 20, suspended the bailable arrest warrants. Hearing the case, Justice Aamer Farooq, who headed a three-member larger bench, directed the PTI chief to reply to the ECP's show-cause notice. Babar Awan assured the court that the PTI chairman would reply to the ECP's show-cause notice with regards to contempt proceedings against him. The ECP had issued the contempt notice to Khan on January 24 over his ?scandalous remarks? about the commission. Babar, the petitioner who had filed the foreign funding case against the PTI leadership, had informed the ECP that the PTI chief had accused it of being biased in the foreign funding case following which his counsel tendered an apology with the commission. Babar is also one of the founding members of the PTI. Several times since then, Imran has accused the ECP, among other government bodies, of being compromised and working for the benefit of Nawaz Sharif, the former prime minister and head of the ruling party, the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz.

A tribal jirga (council) had ordered the couple's execution in October when the families had lodged their case with the influential group of elders following their elopement. The man who ordered the electrocution of a teenage couple Teenage couple were killed by their own kin, on the orders of a tribal Jirga The final challan of the case will be presented after DNA reports of the murdered boy and girl are received. Four of the accused, who were arrested by the police, are in jail on judicial remand. The couple was tied to a wooden bed and electrocuted by family members last month. Police said the girl was aged 15 or 16 and the man was around 18 years old. "The (jirga) decided that the girl would be electrocuted by her own father and uncle and the boy by his father and uncle," police officer Amanullah Marwat told AFP, adding that the families later buried the bodies in secret. Hundreds of women are murdered by their relatives each year after allegedly bringing shame on their families in Pakistan. Karachi ?honour killing?: Authorities exhume couple?s bodies for examination Tribal elder had ordered a teenage couple to be electrocuted by their families as punishment for eloping Under the previous legislation, the culprits could escape punishment if they were pardoned by members of their family. But in July last year the high-profile murder of social media star Qandeel Baloch, whose brother confessed to the killing, reignited calls for reform. Parliament has since passed a law aimed at scrapping the ability to forgive "honour" killers. But critics contend some loopholes still exist.

  9. State Interior Minister Tallal Chaudhry speaking to media in court complex. Photo: Geo News ISLAMABAD: State Interior Minister Tallal Chaudhry on Monday said that arrest of Captain (rtd) Safdar on the non-bailable warrant is a 'routine matter', however, it could have been avoided. Speaking to journalists, he said that the government wanted to show the difference between those who follow law, and those who only speak about it. "I think it was unnecessary by NAB to arrest a person who returned to appear before the accountability court, but as it was a legal matter we didn?t raise our objection," Chaudhry added. "There are absconders who speak on the rule of law but never appear before court, and there is also one who made excuses and ran away from court," he said.

"We have told it before, and we are telling them today as well, we will keep giving those surprises," the state minister said. "Even after having serious reservations over JIT and accountability process we are appearing before it." Separately, while speaking to Geo News, Minister of State for Information and Broadcasting Marriyum Aurangzeb said that Hasan and Hussain Nawaz are expatriates, and they reserve the option to exercise their rights given to them by the constitution. "Hasan and Hussain will exercise the rights given by the constitution to expatriates. They should not be dealt differently than the rest of Pakistanis," she said.

  10. Khawaja Saad Rafique/AFP file photo ISLAMABAD: Minister for Railways Khawaja Saad Rafique on Monday strongly condemned the arrest of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif?s son-in-law Captain (retd) Muhammad Safdar, saying it was ?revenge in the name of accountability and justice.? Taking to Twitter after Captain (retd) Safdar was arrested from Islamabad airport by NAB officials, Rafique said Safdar was a ?true, resolute and unswerving soldier of democracy? and ?Sadiq and Ameen?, warning that those who made his arrest must consider their way of actions. The minister said that ?mafias and relatives of terrorists? neither get arrested nor appear before the courts. ?We fought for freedom and dignity of judiciary yet we are being targeted with injustice,? Rafique lamented. He further said that PML-N would not resist the detention, adding that "we will emerge victorious by the grace of God". NAB arrests Captain (retd) Safdar from Islamabad airport Maryam Nawaz leaves the airport premises alone, Safdar whisked to NAB headquarters in Islamabad Captain (retd) Safdar was arrested from outside Islamabad airport, shortly after he returned from London along with his wife Maryam Nawaz late Sunday. A six-member NAB team waited outside Rawal lounge of the airport for his arrest, as the airport authorities stopped them from entering the lounge. In reply to Rafique?s tweets, PPP leader Sharjeel Memon said that he had been arrested from runway by NAB with the help of PML-N government, adding that the same government today stopped NAB from entering the airport. On October 2, Judge Mohammad Bashir of the accountability court, while hearing corruption references against the Sharif family, had issued non-bailable arrest warrants for Safdar, Hussain Nawaz and Hasan Nawaz, and bailable warrants for Maryam.
  11. RAWALPINDI: Pakistan Rangers Punjab, along with the personnel from the Counter-Terrorism Department and Punjab police, arrested 14 facilitators and smugglers on Saturday, said a statement from the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR).

  12. RIO DE JANEIRO: The Brazilian police on Thursday arrested the head of the national Olympics committee, who is accused of arranging more than $2 million (1.52 million pounds) in bribes to get the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to pick Rio de Janeiro as host of the 2016 games. Carlos Arthur Nuzman, 75, was taken into custody along with Leonardo Gryner, a former director of the national Olympics committee, the police said. Both men face allegations including corruption and money laundering. After police raided Nuzman?s home in September, they accused him of paying a $2 million bribe to the son of Lamine Diack, a former IOC member from Senegal. Both Diack and his son have denied the allegations In a news conference following Nuzman?s arrest, federal prosecutor Fabiana Schneider said the investigation had uncovered evidence Nuzman paid an additional $450,000 to $500,000 to secure the games. Marcelo Bretas, the federal judge who authorized the arrests, said the new evidence indicated that Nuzman?s role in the alleged vote-buying scheme was ?more relevant? than previously thought. Nelio Machado, a lawyer for Nuzman, told reporters the vote-buying accusations were unfounded. The name of Gryner?s attorney was not immediately available. In an arrest order, Bretas said Nuzman?s wealth grew by 416 percent between 2006 and 2016 and that he had assets overseas that were only declared after the vote-buying investigation began. The assets include 16 kg in gold bars deposited in Switzerland, Bretas said. ?While Olympic athletes fought for the dream of winning a gold medal, managers tucked away gold in Switzerland,? Schneider said. The IOC, which is conducting its own internal probe, said in a statement it would cooperate in the Brazilian investigation following news of Nuzman?s arrest. ?Given the new facts, the IOC Ethics Commission may consider provisional measures while respecting Mr. Nuzman?s right to be heard,? the IOC said, without detailing the measures.
  13. A Moscow court said Thursday it had issued an arrest warrant for Russian whistleblower Grigory Rodchenkov, who helped orchestrate the country's state-sponsored Olympic doping programme and has since fled to the United States. "The investigators put Rodchenkov on an international wanted list. Our court on September 21 issued a ruling to arrest him in absentia since he is wanted internationally," the court's spokeswoman Yunona Tsareva told AFP. Rodchenkov is the former director of Moscow's anti-doping lab that oversaw drug testing at the 2014 Sochi Olympics. In May 2016 he gave an interview to the New York Times describing an elaborate doping scheme that he said involved dozens of Russian athletes at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Russia's Black Sea city of Sochi. A bombshell report by a World Anti-Doping Agency independent commission published in November 2016 said Rodchenkov had admitted to "intentionally destroying" 1,417 test samples ahead of an audit. As a result, Russian track and field athletes were barred from the Rio Olympics last year and from the athletics World Championships in London last month. Russia has consistently denied running a state-run doping programme, with deputy prime minister Vitaly Mutko pinning all the blame on Rodchenkov's laboratory and Russia's Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA). The Investigative Committee, which probes serious crimes, opened a criminal investigation into Rodchenkov in 2016, accusing him of abuse of office, for which he could serve up to four years in jail. In a New York Times op-ed piece published Friday, Rodchenkov said he fled his homeland because he feared for his life and his family's safety. Russia and the US do not have an extradition treaty.

LAHORE: The Pakistan High Commission on Friday received the arrest warrants for former prime minister Nawaz Sharif?s three children sent by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB), after an accountability court issued on Tuesday bailable arrest warrants for the children and son-in-law to ensure their presence.

At present, Hassan, Hussain and Maryam Nawaz are in London tending to Begum Kulsoom Nawaz who is undergoing treatment for lymphoma. Safdar is also in London. Nawaz delays visit to London The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz supremo has delayed his plans to visit London after it was reported that Kulsoom?s health has improved. Nawaz was expected to leave for London on Thursday after it emerged that his wife was re-admitted to the hospital upon worsening of her condition, Geo News had reported. The medical condition of Begum Kulsoom Nawaz had deteriorated on Tuesday evening after which she was readmitted to the hospital. Sources informed that Kulsoom was admitted to the emergency unit of Princess Grace Hospital in London.

The court has set October 2 as the date of the next hearing, when it will indict the ousted prime minister.
  15. LONDON: England all-rounder Ben Stokes has been arrested on suspicion of causing actual bodily harm in Bristol and dropped for Wednesday's fourth one-day international against West Indies. The 26-year-old Durham star was arrested early on Monday in the Clifton district of the city and released under investigation - without charge - the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) announced Tuesday. Both Stokes and England opening batsman Alex Hales, 28, who was with him on Sunday night, will miss the game at The Oval.

"A 27-year-old man was found to have suffered facial injuries and was taken to the Bristol Royal Infirmary for treatment. "A 26-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of causing actual bodily harm and has since been released under investigation." The police statement also asked anyone who was in the Clifton Triangle area in the early hours of Monday "who saw any part of this incident" to contact them. The incident happened following England´s 124-run win in the third ODI - where Stokes made 73 - in southwest city Bristol on Sunday that put them 2-0 up in a five-match series against West Indies. Wednesday's fixture at The Oval takes place just hours after England are due to unveil their squad for the Ashes tour of Australia at the south London ground. ECB England cricket director Andrew Strauss, confirmed that both Durham star Stokes - a Test regular - and Nottinghamshire batsman Hales, a fringe candidate who played the last of his 13 Tests 11 months ago, will be considered for the Ashes squad on cricketing grounds alone by the selectors. Strauss, reading from an ECB statement to reporters at The Oval on Tuesday, said: "Ben Stokes and Alex Hales will not be available for tomorrow's (Wednesday´s) one-day International match against West Indies at The Oval. Held overnight "Stokes was arrested in the early hours of Monday morning, 25 September, following an incident in Bristol," the former England captain added as he continued to read out from the statement. "He was held overnight and released under investigation - without charge - late on Monday and will not join the team in London. "Hales, who was with Stokes on Sunday night, did not train this (Tuesday) morning and has returned voluntarily to Bristol today to help police with their enquiries. "You will understand that we cannot offer further detail at this stage but will provide any updates when we can." Strauss, in a subsequent interview with Sky Sports News, confirmed Stokes and Hales remained available for Ashes selection, saying: "The selectors have been instructed to select the Ashes squad based on form and fitness." Stokes was arrested for obstructing police on a night out in 2011 and ultimately cautioned. The following year saw him sent home from an England Lions or A-team tour in Australia, alongside team-mate Matt Coles, for repeatedly flouting curfews and bans on late-night drinking,. Stokes was also sidelined from the 2014 World Twenty20 after breaking his hand as a result of punching a dressing-room locker in Barbados in frustration at a run of poor form. In an interview with The Times magazine published on Saturday, Stokes was asked if his previous experience meant he no longer drank alcohol on evenings out during a five-day Test match, "Yeah, why not?," he replied. "We´re grown men, go out for dinner, have a few pints. "I´m 26, not 14. I don´t have to drink Diet Cokes with dinner."

  22. MOSCOW: The Kremlin on Wednesday insisted the arrest of top theatre and film director Kirill Serebrennikov over alleged embezzlement of state funding was not about politics or censorship of the arts. Dmitry Peskov ? President Vladimir Putin's spokesman ? told journalists, "In this case, you should not waste your breath talking about some kind of politicisation, censorship and so on. Such discussions are absolutely inappropriate and have nothing to do with purely financial questions." The Kremlin spokesman was giving his first in-depth comment on the case. Serebrennikov ? the creative director of the Gogol Centre Theatre in Moscow who has also staged productions at the Bolshoi Theatre ? is under house arrest after being charged last week with defrauding the state of 68 million rubles ($1.15 million/977,000 euros) in funding for a theatrical project, for which he could face a decade in jail. He denies any guilt. Peskov said the charge showed simply that "state funds need to be accounted for". The case has caused an uproar in the art world in Russia and beyond, with many linking it to Serebrennikov's criticism of increasing state censorship of the arts. Peskov, however, dismissed the support Serebrennikov has received from colleagues in the theatre. "The support from colleagues? is very understandable, but probably you should not link this support directly to those questions that investigators have for Serebrennikov," he said. Chulpan Khamatova ? one of Russia's best-known actresses and philanthropists who once made a video supporting Putin's election campaign ? spoke out against his arrest at an awards ceremony on Wednesday. "My colleague, my friend, is under house arrest, in my view completely unjustly and unlawfully. I am very afraid," she said. A court has detained Serebrennikov under house arrest in Moscow until October 19, despite numerous offers of bail from his supporters, including the sister of billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov.

  25. Our favourite show ‘Game of Thrones' is back with its 7th season and so is our obsession for watching it before everyone else. To avoid spoilers and ruin it for everyone else, the fastest option seems to be the pirated and leaked versions floating online. Well, when half the world is watching it, why shouldn't we, right? But, ever wondered what happens to the source who leaks it? They get arrested by the cyber cell before they can even get to see the ‘leaked episode 6'. If Monday wasn't bad anyway, it turned worse for these four men who saw the real life White Walkers aka Mumbai police, walk into their lives and arrest them for leaking an episode of ‘Game of Thrones' online. © HBO Three employees of Prime Focus Technology and a former employee have been accused of leaking the show's fourth episode online. Reportedly, the complaint was filed by the company. It processes the series for online streaming service Hotstar and a Mumbai court remanded them in police custody till August 21. Yes, we are talking about ‘The Spoils of War' and apparently the leak of this episode was separate from the HBO hack that stirred a storm on the Internet. © HBO The company that is said to have the season's airing rights lodged a complaint after they found the low quality video of the episode on the internet, before the official airing. They caught hold of the culprits because they saw the channel's watermark on it. According to Hindustan Times, the people accused are Bhaskar Joshi, Alok Sharma, Abhishek Ghadiyal and Mohammad Suhail. They have been booked under section 408, 34 of IPC for breach of trust with common intention and sections 43 and 66 of IT Act for penalty and compensation for damage to computer and computer-related offences. ‘Game of Thrones' has already become the most pirated show on television and has compelled half of us to wait for the leak, more than the actual airing of any episode. While, we are losing our sh*t over the leaked episode 6, please beware before sharing anything because ‘cyber cell is coming'.
