  2. Morenada dancers participate in the traditional inaugural parade of Oruro's Carnival ? declared Unesco World Heritage ? in Oruro, Bolivia, February 10, 2018. AFP/Files LA PAS: A bomb triggered a blast that killed four people during carnival celebrations in the Bolivian city of Oruro, police said Wednesday. Police commander Faustino Mendoza said a device packed with three kilograms (6.6 pounds) of dynamite exploded late Tuesday, killing bystanders. "We have four people killed and nine injured," said Mendoza, adding that the blast occurred in a street near the scene of an even deadlier explosion on Saturday that killed eight people. Initially, a government minister said that explosion was likely caused by a street vendor?s gas cylinder. Following the second blast, army units patrolled the streets of the city and regional Governor Victor Hugo Vasquez said: "We are sure that this is a criminal attack." Defense Minister Javier Zabaleta said authorities were now considering "the possibility that the two explosions are coordinated events." Three suspects have been arrested, Interior Minister Carlos Romero said, without giving further details. Traces of ANFO, an industrial explosive widely used in the mining industry, were also found at the site of the latest blast, authorities said. President Evo Morales, in a statement on Twitter, said the South American country had been plunged into mourning. "Very saddened and concerned because we have a tragedy again, and the death of innocent bystanders in Oruro has our country in mourning after another explosion," he wrote. The northwestern Bolivian city is known for its cobblestone streets and colorful carnival celebrations that attract as many as half a million visitors to the city. Thousands of people had danced along a four-kilometer (2.5-mile) circuit of streets during the festivities on Tuesday.

However, police are still conducting raids to search for the arrested suspects' accomplices.
  5. During his playing days, Virender Sehwag was undeniably a force to be reckoned with. His unorthodox batting technique allowed him to hammer the opposition bowlers all around the park. And, even after calling time on his career, Sehwag continues to be a dominant force on social media with his wit and humour. But, while he may have retired from international cricket, Sehwag clearly hasn't forgotten the art of batting. His genius with the willow was once again on full display during the unique Ice Cricket tournament in Switzerland. Taking on Shahid Afridi-led Royals XI, the 'Nawab of Najafgarh' turned back the clock and took the fans to his yesteryears where he once reigned supreme. Despite the bone-chilling conditions in the backdrop of breathtaking Alpine range in the resort town of St Moritz, the 39-year-old created a unique record of scoring the first four and six of the first of its kind tournament. And, if that wasn't enough, Sehwag went on to etch his name in the history books as the first-ever cricketer to score a fifty in the Ice Cricket tournament. There was a reason why 90's people used to say - "Sehwag ki batting dekh kar chalte hain" @virendersehwag ðªðª#IceCricket pic.twitter.com/i1j41KezwD — Prashant Pareek (@prashan235) February 8, 2018 After deciding to bat first, Palace Diamonds got off to a roaring start, following a flabbergasting rendition of masterful strokeplay by their captain Sehwag who smashed a 31-ball 62 including four majestic fours and five towering sixes. In the end, it was his old nemesis Shoaib Akhtar who put an end to Sehwag's blazing innings. Hathiyar chhode hain ,chalana nahi bhoole hain :) Great fun on the ice. pic.twitter.com/V1bjFATGnI — Virender Sehwag (@virendersehwag) February 8, 2018 Following his outing in temperatures below zero degrees, Sehwag took to Twitter and posted a brilliant one-liner about his knock. "Hathiyar chhode hain ,chalana nahi bhoole hain :) Great fun on the ice," he tweeted. @virendersehwag .. kya baat kaha Viru... — Sourav Ganguly (@SGanguly99) February 8, 2018 The post garnered a massive response from the fans and it even evoked a response from Sourav Ganguly. Impressed with Viru's comment, Ganguly replied: "kya baat kaha Viru". Here's what the twitterverse had to say after witnessing Sehwag back in action: Kya baat hai Paji..sher toh sher hai.

  9. Turkish police officers secure the area after a rocket hit a restaurant in Kilis province. -AFP KILIS: Four people were injured on Thursday after rockets fired from Syria hit the Turkish border province of Kilis, the governor said. Two rockets hit a restaurant and a house in the centre of Kilis on the 13th day of Turkey's offensive against the Kurdish YPG militia in the northern Syrian region of Afrin. Four people were wounded, Kilis governor Mehmet Tekinarslan told reporters. The front of the restaurant was smashed, AFP correspondents said. Security forces cordoned off the area and ambulances quickly arrived on the scene to evacuate the injured. Shortly after the attack, Turkish artillery fire could be heard from the centre of Kilis. Multiple rockets have hit the Turkish border provinces of Hatay and Kilis, killing at least five people. Turkish media blames the rockets on the Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG), viewed as "terrorists" by the Turkish government which wants to remove them from their enclave of Afrin. Ankara says the YPG is an offshoot of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers´ Party (PKK) which has waged a three-decade insurgency against the Turkish state. But the YPG has been working closely with the United States against the Islamic State group in Syria, capturing swathes of territory from the extremist organisation last year.
  10. Police investigators check the site where a bomb exploded in Barranquilla, Colombia, January 27, 2018. AFP/Jose Torres BOGOTA: At least four police officers were killed and 42 others wounded Saturday when alleged drug traffickers detonated a remote-controlled bomb at a station in the northern city of Barranquilla, officials said. The attack was one of the deadliest on security personnel in recent years in one of Colombia's most important cities. It comes as the government of President Juan Manuel Santos seeks to bring the armed conflict that has wracked Colombia for 50 years to an end. Much of the violence has been financed by drug trafficking. The bombing also casts a pall over preparations for the annual carnival, a major attraction in the Caribbean port city. Mariano Botero, the Barranquilla police commander, said that the bomb detonated as the officers gathered for morning formation. One suspect was captured, he said. A police source told AFP that 49 officers were at the site when the bomb exploded. Of those, four were killed and 42 were wounded. The toll is considerably higher than the initial figure of 17 wounded and three killed given by Botero. Retaliation Barranquilla Mayor Alejandro Char quickly blamed drug traffickers for the attack. "I do not have the slightest doubt that this is a retaliation" for successful police action against drug traffickers, he told reporters. Botero also suggested that the attack could be in revenge after a police crackdown on local drug traffickers. Colombia is the world's top producer of cocaine, and criminal groups have flooded the country's main cities with drugs in a move known as "microtrafficking." El Heraldo, the main Barranquilla newspaper, said that some believe the attack may have been aimed at distracting police from an armoured car robbery that took place at the same time. General Jorge Nieto ? the head of Colombia's national police ? said he travelled to Barranquilla to offer his support to the blast survivors and their relatives. He also announced a reward of 50 million pesos ($17.8 million) for information about the attack. "We strongly condemn this barbaric act and soon we will find those behind it," he said. President Juan Manuel Santos blasted the "cowardly attack" on Twitter. "We will not rest until we find those responsible, my solidarity with the families of the victims and the wounded," Santos wrote. Joining Santos was the presidential candidate of the FARC, the former guerrilla group which is now a leftist political party. Rodrigo "Timochenko" Londono "vehemently" condemned the Barranquilla attack on Twitter. "All our solidarity is for the relatives of the slain police," he wrote. Santos reached a historic peace agreement with the FARC - formerly known as the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia - in November 2016. That led to the rebels' disarmament and transformation into a political party. The president, who is set to step down in August, is hoping to reach a similar agreement with the smaller National Liberation Army (ELN) guerrillas.
  11. At least 22 people were killed in the attack on the Kabul Intercontinental Hotel on Saturday. Photo: Reuters Glenn Selig, the spokesman for Trump campaign adviser Rick Gates, was killed in Saturday's deadly attack on a luxury hotel in Kabul, according to a statement from the spokesperson for The Publicity Agency and Selig Multimedia Inc, his Florida-based companies. Gates pleaded not guilty in October to eight charges of money laundering and failing to register foreign lobbying and other business, according to the CNN. Glenn Selig. Photo: adweek.com Four Americans were among at least 22 people killed in the attack on the Intercontinental Hotel in Kabul on Saturday, according to the US State Department. "The United States strongly condemns the attack on January 20 at the Intercontinental Hotel in Kabul. We can confirm that there were four US citizens killed and two injured. We offer our deepest condolences to the families and friends of those who were killed and wish for the speedy recovery of those wounded. Out of respect for the families of the deceased, we have no further comment," US State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert said in a statement. At least five dead as gunmen attack top Kabul hotel; 126 hostages rescued According to a witness who did not want to be named, the attackers took some hotel staff and guests hostage "Unfortunately, we have received confirmation Glenn Selig was killed during the attack on the Intercontinental Hotel," the Selig Multimedia representative said in the statement. "Glenn was a tireless professional, loyal friend and pillar of the community, but most importantly he was a loving husband and wonderful father. "The loss for his family and friends cannot be measured nor conveyed strongly enough, but we thank everyone for the outpouring of support we have received," the statement added. "Moving forward we kindly request privacy and compassion as we process this terrible situation." Kabul hotel guests describe lax security before deadly attack Bags were not checked, scanners did not work, and body searches were nonexistent, according to witnesses Selig's firm's spokesperson added: "Glenn was in Kabul on a potential success story involving Afghanistan and its steps to battle extremism. The focus was highlighting the country's new president and constructing a democracy forum event for Afghani women." US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson issued a statement Sunday condemning the attack. "The United States stands with the government and people of Afghanistan," he said. "We remain firmly committed to supporting Afghan efforts to achieve peace, security, and prosperity for their country. Violence like what we witnessed yesterday has no place in Afghanistan or anywhere else in the world." Gunmen had attacked the hotel Saturday night and were killed the next day after an operation by the Afghan security forces in which over 150 people were rescued.
  12. NEW DELHI: Maoist rebels killed four policemen Wednesday in central India where the guerrillas have been waging a jungle battle for decades, an officer said. Seven other police officers were injured in an ambush in the Narayanpur district of Chhattisgarh state, a densely forested region where security forces have been hunting the rebels known as Naxals. District police chief Jitendra Shukla said an unknown number of Maoists opened fire on the patrol before slipping away into the jungle. "Four of our men were killed. Seven injured have been taken to hospital in the state capital Raipur," Shukla told AFP. Last year Maoist rebels killed 24 paramilitary policemen in the same state in an ambush on their convoy. The guerrillas, who say they are fighting for the rights of tribal people and landless farmers, often collect funds through extortion. The Maoists are believed to be present in at least 20 states but are most active in Chhattisgarh, Orissa, Bihar, Jharkhand and Maharashtra. The decades-old insurgency is believed to have cost tens of thousands of lives, with much action focused around the insurgent-dominated "Red Corridor" stretching through central and eastern India. Critics believe attempts to end the revolt through tough security offensives are doomed to fail, saying the real solution is better governance and development of the region.

  14. [embed_video1 url=http://stream.jeem.tv/vod/1bca7d3b8da3d13c30b0be80ff46ff00.mp4/playlist.m3u8?wmsAuthSign=c2VydmVyX3RpbWU9MS8yMi8yMDE4IDEyOjQ4OjA4IFBNJmhhc2hfdmFsdWU9d1dIKzcwWXdkajR2UXZDZ2V1S2RBQT09JnZhbGlkbWludXRlcz02MCZpZD0x style=center] From playing a major role in deciding the future of democracies to deciding the fate of presidential contenders, social media has played a strong role but it seems like its days are numbered. According to a recent survey, only one in four Britons trust news on social media. The days when social media was considered as an enabler of citizen journalists and for its role in the Arab Spring have passed, suggests the 18th annual survey of the Edelman trust barometer, The Guardian reported. Fake news and concerns about cyberbullying, extremist propaganda and the effects of social media on children has considerably affected its credibility. The survey found that support for traditional media has increased by 13 points to reach 61% ? the highest level since 2012. Britain?s Prime Minister Theresa May has talked of the ?additional concerns and challenges? posed to young people by social media. UK?s health and social care secretary Jeremy Hunt has also warned companies they could face sanctions unless they did more to tackle sexting, cyberbullying, and the abuse of young users. A statement from head of Apple, Tim Cook, who said last week that he did not want his nephew on a social network, and another one from the former Facebook executive Chamath Palihapitiya who said: ?God only knows what it?s doing to our children?s brains,? raises serious concerns on the longstanding impacts of social media. According to the Edelman trust barometer survey, 64% of 1,050 UK respondents expressed concern over lack of regulation in the social media sector. 69% agreed that they did not do enough to prevent bullying and 70% that there was insufficient action to stop illegal or unethical behaviour on networks. Abuse has almost become a given for social media users. From politicians to celebrities to just about anyone expressing an opinion online, no one is safe from receiving abuse in the virtual world. Daisy Ridley, Sam Smith and Stephen Fry are among the celebrities who have temporarily or permanently quit social media networks in response to online slurs. Singer Ed Sheeran said last year that he had stopped reading tweets due to negativity. With fake news all over the internet, 53% of people polled said they worried about being exposed to it on social media. The fear of fake news is very likely to be the reason behind the increased support for traditional media. 42% of the respondents said they only skimmed headlines on social media but did not click on the content.
  15. Japan's weather agency Monday issued a heavy snow warning for Tokyo for the first time in four years, urging people to go home early amid fears of public transport chaos. Photo: AFP/file TOKYO: Japan's weather agency Monday issued a heavy snow warning for Tokyo for the first time in four years, urging people to go home early amid fears of public transport chaos. Scores of domestic flights departing from and arriving at the Japanese capital were scrapped due to the snow, while some regional trains were also cancelled. Japan's northern regions frequently see heavy blankets of snow but such weather is rare in Tokyo. And with the snowfall expected to get heavier, Tsumoru Matsumoto, the agency's chief forecaster, urged people to cut short their working day. "There will be heavy snow this evening" in Tokyo, Matsumoto said, warning that "the snow is likely to affect public transport" when the evening commute begins. The weather agency only issues a heavy snow alert when there are fears there could be damage to property or disruption to traffic. "In Tokyo, we also warn of heavy snow if the snow is expected to accumulate more than 10 centimetres (3.94 inches) in 12 hours," Sakiko Nishioka from the weather agency told AFP. The last time the alert was issued, in February 2014, Tokyo saw 27 centimetres of snow. The country's northern regions that often see heavy snow have a higher bar for the warning.
  16. Three women died at the stop while a man wounded in the firing succumbed to his injuries in the hospital MIANWALI: Three women were among four dead when gunmen opened fire at them over a land dispute in the Rogan area of Mianwali.

Shikarpur clash victims to be buried today An old enmity left 13 dead, over 20 injured on Monday At least 13 people were killed in July last year while more than twenty injured during an exchange of fire between two armed groups of the Jatoi tribe in Shikarpur. Police said the scuffle was the result of a long enmity between the two groups over a land dispute, which had already claimed six lives in the past five years.
  17. Four of the five attackers aboard Pan Am Flight 73 who hijacked the plane during an airport stopover in Karachi, which resulted in the deaths of 20 passengers and crew-FBI website The US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has released age-processed photos of four alleged suspects in the 1986 Pan Am Flight 73 hijacking in Karachi, in which 20 people died. ?The FBI is hoping to generate new leads with the release of new age-progressed images of four alleged hijackers involved in a 1986 attack in Pakistan that killed two Americans,? a statement by the agency said. Five attackers aboard Pan Am Flight 73 hijacked the plane during an airport stopover in Karachi, which resulted in the deaths of 20 passengers and crew. The four suspects?Wadoud Muhammad Hafiz al-Turki, Jamal Saeed Abdul Rahim, Muhammad Abdullah Khalil Hussain ar-Rahayyal, and Muhammad Ahmed al-Munawar?are believed to have been members of the Abu Nidal Organization, which was designated a terrorist organisation by the US Department of State. Each of the men is on the FBI?s Most Wanted Terrorists List. The case is being investigated by the FBI?s Washington Field Office, the statement added. According to the FBI, Wadoud Muhammad Hafiz al-Turki was born in Baghdad, while Jamal Saeed Abdul Rahim and Muhammad Abdullah Khalil Hussain ar-Rahayyal were born in Lebanon. Muhammad Ahmed al-Munawar was born in Kuwait. ?It?s always been an active case of ours,? said the lead FBI agent on the case. He said images of the suspects obtained by the FBI in the year 2000 were age-progressed by the FBI Laboratory. ?We?re hoping that with the age-progression photos next to the original photos maybe that will jar some memories or maybe someone has seen these guys walking around.? The aircraft, with 360 passengers onboard, had just arrived from Sahar International Airport in Mumbai, and was preparing to depart Jinnah International Airport in Karachi for Frankfurt Airport in Frankfurt am Main, West Germany, ultimately continuing on to John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York City, United States. A June 2001 grand jury charged that the militants were planning to use the hijacked plane to pick up Palestinian prisoners in both Cyprus and Israel. The 17-hour long hijacking came to an end when the hijackers opened fire on the passengers at 9:30pm, prompting action from the SSG commando unit, headed by Brigadier Tariq Mehmood, and the Shaheen Company of the SSG's 1st Commando Battalion carried out the operation. Passengers aboard the plane included nationals of Algeria, Canada, France, India , Pakistan and United States. All four hijackers were convicted in Pakistan and sentenced to death in 1988, before having their sentences reduced to life imprisonment. They were released in 2008 and deported to Palestinian territories. Authorities subsequently released the leader of the hijackers, Zayd Hassan Abd al-Latif Masud al-Safarini, in 2001, who was shortly arrested by the US in Bangkok on his way to Jordan. He was convicted in 2004 and sentenced to 160 years in prison.
  18. The highly anticipated epic Padmaavat has been banned in Indian state Haryana, making it the fourth state to ban the movie. Photo: courtesy Padmaavat2 The highly anticipated epic Padmaavat has been banned in Indian state Haryana, making it the fourth state to ban the movie. The controversial movie was renamed as ?Padmaavat? and slated to be released on January 25. However, the movie has been banned in Rajasthan, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh and now Haryana, reported Times of India. On Tuesday, the Haryana cabinet headed by chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar formally approved the proposals made by two ministers Anil Vij and Vipul Goel to ban the film in the state. "Film Padmavati/Padmaavat banned in Haryana," Vij tweeted on Tuesday. Controversial Haryana BJP leader Suraj Pal Amu, who had quit as party's chief media coordinator in November, had led protests against the film and had even offered 10 crore as "reward to behead" Bhansali and the film's lead actor Deepika Padukone. Padmaavat was earlier slated for release on December 1, but the studio had to defer it amid the controversy the film stirred up in sections of the country. The film, starring Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor, angered many after the Shree Rajput Karni Sena alleged it distorted historical facts related to the Rajput community. The group has been persistent in its demand for a ban on the movie ever since.

  21. A French woman dubbed the "Black Widow of the Riviera" for allegedly seducing and poisoning wealthy elderly men, leading to the deaths of two of them, faces a life sentence as her trial gets under way on Monday. Photo: AFP/file1 NICE: A French woman dubbed the "Black Widow of the Riviera" for allegedly seducing and poisoning wealthy elderly men, leading to the deaths of two of them, faces a life sentence as her trial gets under way on Monday. Patricia Dagorn, 57, is already serving a five-year prison term for theft, fraud and sequestration involving an octogenarian in the French Alps in 2012 after he agreed to let her live with him in exchange for sexual relations. The 87-year-old man, Robert Mazereau, was later assaulted. The year before, police had already suspected Dagorn after the body of Michel Kneffel, a man in his 60s with whom she had been living at a residential hotel in Nice, was discovered in July 2011. No charges were filed in that case, but the investigation was reopened after her conviction the following year, when police found vials of Valium and personal documents belonging to about a dozen different men, including IDs, bank account details and health insurance cards. That led investigators to another suspected murder case, that of Francesco Filippone, 85, whose body was found in his bathtub in an advanced state of decomposition in Mouans-Sartoux, outside Cannes, in February 2011. Dagorn had earlier cashed a cheque from Filippone for 21,000 euros ($25,600), money which she said was a gift to help her open a jewellery shop. "She denies the charges against her in their entirety, including the thefts," said one of her lawyers, Georges Rimondi. When Dagorn was charged over the cases in 2015, Rimondi had described his client as a "fragile" individual who had been placed in foster care at a young age, and who says "she feels better with elderly people". "She is eager to explain herself," said her other lawyer, Cedric Huissoud, adding that she had suffered during her years in prison. 'Quick and easy money' Police now think Dagorn may have met at least 20 men after arriving on the French Riviera in 2011, mainly via a matchmaking agency. In most of the cases she allegedly asked the men for money or to name her in their wills, or she stole documents from them, while a few were accused of rape. Two of the men, Ange Pisciotta, 82, and Robert Vaux, 91, were to testify at the trial in Nice. Vaux, who had brought Dagorn to live with him in early 2012 in the coastal town of Frejus, saw his health deteriorate rapidly just as she was making arrangements with his solicitor. Dagorn, who has a law degree, had already been handed a one-year suspended prison term in a case involving her ex-husband, who was found guilty of fraud. In 2013, her youngest son told a local newspaper that he was not surprised by the accusations against his mother. "She has always been obsessed with quick and easy money," the son, identified as Guilhem, told Nice-Matin.

The youth were killed in a joint operation launched by the Indian army and the Central Armed Police Force (CAPF) at Dulanja in Uri area of the district. On December 11, three people, including a woman, were martyred by the Indian troops in Handwara area of Kupwara district. The brutal killings took place in a joint operation by Indian army, police and Indian paramilitary Central Reserve Police Force in Younsu village of Handwara.

  23. 12th January 2018 will go down in history with regard to an extraordinary event that took place in the capital of India. The unprecedented press conference held by four senior judges of the Supreme Court including Justice Chelameswar, Justice Ranjan Gogoi, Justice Madan Lokur and Justice Kurian Joseph, is now being perceived as both consequential and calamitous. The remarkable address has debunked a major tiff existing inside the highest echelon of the judiciary. However, at the same time, it is deplorable that a cold war has been initiated against the Chief Justice of India, Dipak Misra. Source: Twitter It all started with Justice Chelameswar's address, “It is an extraordinary event in the history of any nation and more particularly this nation. An extraordinary event in the history of this institution of the judiciary. It is with no pleasure in our hearts that we are compelled to take this decision to call for a press conference. But sometimes, the administration of the Supreme Court is not in order, and many things which are less than desirable which have happened in the last few months.” While Justice Chelameswar clearly mentioned that they are not accusing anyone or trying to make it a controversial issue, journalists at the press conference raised their concern about how this unprecedented event will be perceived by the millions of people who are watching it live. Justice Chelameswar further clarified that when a couple of months back a signed letter was submitted to the Chief Justice of India, expecting for a particular matter to be done in a particular manner, though the matter was solved, it left too many questions. “Chief Justice is only the first amongst the equals — nothing more or nothing less”, stated the letter. The quintessence of the historic address is not only a clear indication of the fact that something radically grave and unfortunate has happened within the highest law enforcing body, of the nation, in-fact ultimately heaves a doubt on the institution's forthrightness. Source: Twitter The matter is also being associated with the petition that sought inquiry into the death of special CBI judge, B.H. Loya. Justice Loya died under mysterious circumstances, at the time he was spearheading the Sohrabuddin Sheikh Encounter case (in which various police officers and BJP president Amit Shah were named as the parties involved). The airing of differences in the public eye must not become a matter of political scrutiny as it also facades the perils of wounding the image of the judiciary. This is a decidedly a crucial time in the last 68 years where the internal conflict in the Judiciary has finally come to light. This is also one moment in the history of the existence of the Indian law making and law enforcing system when a meaningful example has been set by people who abide by the truth. For the truth is something powerful beyond any measure, it can be shut down for a while but cannot be avoided. Today, when dark clouds of apprehension have surrounded the highest law-making force in the country, it is the need of the hour to get down to brass tacks, collectively and truthfully. Breaking the code of conduct and holding a meeting against the CJI may have some dreadful repercussions for the four judges. However, this step can also be just a small beginning to a bigger change that the country desperately needs.
  24. The four judges holding the press conference. Photo: NDTV NEW DELHI: Four sitting judges of the Supreme Court of India on Friday said the administration of the highest court was not in order, warning that democracy would not survive in the country unless the institution was preserved. The judges blew the lid on a growing rift with Chief Justice Dipak Misra at a news conference, the first of its kind held by sitting judges of India's top court, where they revealed a letter written to the chief justice a few months ago. According to reports in the Indian media, the press conference comes amid a tug-of-war between the government and the judiciary over how to appoint judges to the high courts and Supreme Court. "The four of us are convinced that unless this institution is preserved and it maintains its equanimity, democracy will not survive in this country," Justice Jasti Chelameswar said on the lawns of his residence in the Indian capital. Chelameswar, speaking beside his colleagues, Justices Ranjan Gogoi, Madan Lokur and Kurian Joseph, said they did not want to be accused of not having spoken up for the institution, or of "selling their souls". Efforts to alert the chief justice that certain things were not in order and that remedial measures needed to be taken had failed, prompting the news conference, Chelameswar said. ?Cases assigned to benches without rational basis? In a letter to the chief justice, the top judges of the Supreme Court said they were concerned about the selective assignment of important cases. The letter added that cases were being assigned to benches without any rational basis.
