  1. 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'.

  17. PARIS: Human Rights Watch (HRW) pressed the French government on Wednesday to end what it described as police violence against migrants in the northern town of Calais, where hundreds have returned despite the demolition of a sprawling camp known as "the jungle". In a report entitled "Like Living in Hell", the rights group said police "routinely" abused migrants in the hope of having them leave the coastal town. Based on interviews conducted with some 60 migrants in the area, HRW said police had used pepper spray on child and adult migrants while they were sleeping, regularly sprayed or confiscated sleeping bags and clothing, and sometimes destroyed food and water. Officials at the interior ministry and the regional government could not be reached for comment. "Such acts violate the prohibition on inhuman and degrading treatment as well as international standards on police conduct," HRW said. "Local and national authorities should immediately and unequivocally direct police to adhere to international standards on the use of force and to refrain from conduct that interferes with aid delivery," it said. Aid agencies and government officials estimate there are as many as 600 migrants, fleeing war and poverty, in the northern port area, where a vast shanty town was brought down by authorities last October. Drawn by the English language and, in some cases, by family and friends, they hope to reach Britain illegally. "Since they destroyed the Calais camp last year, there is no place to sleep or eat. It's like living in hell," HRW quoted a 29-year-old Ethiopian national as saying. The accusations of police misconduct echo what other migrants and local associations representatives told Reuters last month. The regional prefect and a police official had at the time formally denied any wrongdoing. A local court in June ordered authorities to provide drinking water, toilets and showers to migrants and to allow charities to hand out meals. But at the same time it upheld government decisions to deploy extra riot police and not to build a new reception centre. New president Emmanuel Macron last month promised migrants would be treated humanely after France's human rights watchdog was fiercely critical of the living conditions they face.

Metropolitan Police Department/Handout via REUTERS WASHINGTON: Two members of a teenage robotics team from Burundi who went missing after a competition in Washington last week have been located and are safe, the city's Metropolitan Police Department said on Tuesday. The teens, Don Ingabire, 16, and Audrey Mwamikazi, 17, were spotted last week crossing the border into Canada. The Metropolitan Police Department would not say on Tuesday where or when they were found, citing department procedures for missing persons. "The others are still missing, so the case is still under investigation," police spokeswoman Karimah Bilal said. Four boys and two girls from the African nation were last seen on July 18 after the FIRST Global Robotics Challenge concluded.

  21. BACKGROUND IMAGE: Public prosecutor Peter Sticher (L) and head of police Ravi Landolt attend a press conference in the town of Schaffhausen, northern Switzerland, where a man armed with a chainsaw injured at least five people in an attack on July 24, 2017. AFP/Michael Buholzer; SUPERIMPOSED IMAGE: This handout combination of pictures released on July 24, 2017, by Swiss Police of the Canton of Schaffhausen (Schaffhauser Polizei) shows portraits of a man suspected to have injured at least five people in a chainsaw attack in the old town of Schaffhausen on July 24, 2017. AFP/Schaffhausen Police SCHAFFHAUSEN: Swiss police were searching Monday for a man who went on a rampage while armed with a chainsaw in an attack police said was not "a terrorist act". Officers have identified the assailant as Franz Wrousis, a 51-year-old man, with a criminal history and no fixed address, who reportedly has spent significant time living in a forest. Late Monday, he remained on the run from police. The attack began shortly after the suspect entered an office building in the northern town of Schaffhausen at 10:30 AM (0130 PST, Tuesday), local police said in a statement. Schaffhausen prosecutor Peter Sticher told reporters that an insurance company with offices in the building was the apparent target, indicating the attacker had a grievance with the firm. The authorities were alerted about 10 minutes after the attack began and rushed officers, ambulances and helicopters to the scene. The injured included one employee of the insurance company who suffered serious wounds, Schaffhausen police said, adding that all the victims had been hospitalised. The town's historic old quarter was sealed off by a large deployment of officers who evacuated all nearby businesses and pedestrians, but the barricades were later removed and regular traffic returned to the area. 'Dangerous and aggressive' Police distributed photos of Wrousis that show him looking dishevelled. He is pictured standing alone in what appears to be a forested area. A local official in Zurich canton, Ruedi Karrer, told the 20Minuten website he had seen Wrousis in the Uhwiesen forest while walking his dog and believed the suspect had been staying there for about two weeks. Several other residents told the site they had also passed by Wrousis in the forest ? about two kilometres from Schaffhausen ? and that his behaviour had been threatening. "This is a dangerous and aggressive man," the chief of security in Schaffhausen, Ravi Landoldt, told reporters. "This was not his first contact with police." The suspect was convicted in 2014 and again in 2016 for weapons offences, police said. Despite relatively low crime rates, Switzerland has one of the highest rates of firearm ownership in the world and police said it was likely that the suspect was carrying weapons. The manhunt involving roughly 100 police officers is being carried out by Schaffhausen authorities and supported by forces from Zurich as well as Germany, police said. The suspect's vehicle, a white Volkswagen, has been found although he remains on the run. In statements to local media, police underscored that the attack was not "a terrorist act." Schaffhausen, just north of Zurich near the German border, has an estimated population of 36,000.
  22. After a sensational run and a dominant show in the ICC Women's World Cup, the Indian cricket team failed to go past the final hurdle and surely missed a rare chance of creating history by winning their maiden title. Mithali Raj-led India suffered a heart-breaking nine-run loss at the hands of hosts England in the summit clash at Lord's. While the faces of the Indian cricketers clearly highlighted their disappointment, the Women in Blue - despite losing the title to England - had nothing really to prove anymore. They had gone from strength to strength, finding new heroes in each game and overcoming all the hurdles to reach the final. © Reuters Harmanpreet Kaur was one such hero for the Indian women's team in the tournament. The right-hander had slammed a breath-taking 171* off just 115 balls against the mighty Australians in the semifinals, thereby recording the second-highest individual score for India in women's cricket and propelling her side into the summit clash. In the final, too, Harmanpreet contributed with the bat and scored a pivotal knock of 51 runs. She was also part of the 95-run partnership with Punam Raut (86) that almost got India home. Despite her contributions going in vain with India missing out on the trophy, Harmanpreet undeniably won billion hearts back home. So much so that Punjab Chief Minister Capt. Amarinder Singh couldn't help but shower praise on the hometown girl for her brilliant showing in the tournament. But, praise wasn't the only thing that was going to come from the Punjab CM. Proud of @ImHarmanpreet, they gave an excellent fight to England in the World Cup final, would be happy to appoint her DSP if she desires. — Capt.Amarinder Singh (@capt_amarinder) July 23, 2017 Singh, who had earlier announced a cash reward of Rs 5 lakh to the Indian cricketer, has now offered her the post of DSP in the Punjab Police, if Harmanpreet still desired to join the force. The chief minister earlier promised to review the state's sports policy to provide government jobs to young sportspersons like Harmanpreet, and also announced Rs 5 lakh cash award for the cricketing marvel. Best wishes to @ImHarmanpreet & team India, they're doing a great job in the World Cup so far, spoke to her father, also announced Rs 5L. — Capt.Amarinder Singh (@capt_amarinder) July 23, 2017 Captain Amarinder, who called up Harmanpreet's father Harmandar Singh during the day, said his Government would initiate steps to change the sports policy to accommodate budding sportspersons in government jobs. He told Harmandar that his Government was committed to the promotion of sports in the state. All steps would be taken to ensure the welfare of sportspersons who were contributing to the state's glory with their grit and hard work, he added. The Punjab politician further said Harmanpreet had done the entire country proud with her rare accomplishment in the field of sports and would always be a source of inspiration for young players.

  24. SHANGHAI: Beijing police are hunting for a man suspected of stabbing five people and then ploughing into a group of nine others with a van, killing one and injuring eight, the official Xinhua news agency reported. The attack took place mid-afternoon on Sunday in the suburban district of Miyun in Beijing's northwestern outskirts. The suspect attacked the group of five people with scissors and then fled in a van, police said. Xinhua said late on Sunday the injured were being treated in hospital, while the police were still searching for the suspect. The police did not give a possible motive for the incident but authorities and residents in the country's political centre are sensitive to potential attacks. In 2013, a vehicle crashed on the edge of Tiananmen Square in the heart of Beijing, killing five people and injuring dozens in what China said was a planned attack by the East Turkestan Islamic Movement, a Muslim Uighur separatist group. Earlier this year a car crashed and overturned near Tiananmen Square, sparking rumours online that said it was linked to extremism. Police deemed the crash an accident and detained two people for spreading false rumours online.
  25. Venezuelan opposition activists chanting "No more dictatorship!" hurled stones at National Guard riot police who blocked them from marching on central Caracas. AFP/Juan Barreto CARACAS: Police on motorcycles fired tear gas Saturday to break up an opposition march on the Venezuelan Supreme Court to press demands that President Nicolas Maduro leave office, as months of sometimes deadly anti-government demonstrations showed no signs of abating. The rally was also meant as a show of support for a slate of 33 magistrates ? a so-called shadow supreme court ? whose names were put forward Friday by the opposition to replace Venezuela's current high court, which is closely allied with Maduro and frequently rules in his favour. Emboldened by a nationwide strike on Thursday that paralysed parts of the capital Caracas and other Venezuelan cities, opposition leaders held a mock swearing-in ceremony Friday for the shadow court's new "judges." Many of the actual court's justices were hastily appointed shortly before Maduro's ruling party lost its majority in congress. The shadow court has strong support from the demonstrators, organisers said Saturday. "Everyone has given their backing to the new Supreme Court," tweeted Freddy Guevara, a leader of the opposition-led Congress. "We support the new judges because they will restore independence to the Supreme Court," said 43-year-old demonstrator Luis Torrealba, marching with his wife and teenage son. In Saturday's march, hundreds of people took to a key Caracas motorway to head downtown toward the court building. But uniformed National Guard troops riding motorcycles fired tear gas to disperse them. The swearing-in of a shadow judiciary was condemned by the government as "incitement to subversion" and an act of "treason," and officials threatened to throw the dissidents into prison. Venezuela is in the throes of a political and economic crisis that has led to shortages of basic goods and soaring inflation. With the situation already inflamed, the stakes have risen further, after the United States threatened economic sanctions if Maduro proceeds with a controversial July 30 election of a body to rewrite the constitution. The president has vowed to maintain the July 30 election of 545 members to the "Constitutional Assembly." Saturday's protests, like many others since April, were organised by the Democratic Unity Roundtable, a coalition of political opposition groups. The number of deaths in protests across the country since April has reached 103 ? about one fatality per day.
