Experts express shock on police high-handedness in Jiah's suicide case
Report dated 14/06/2013 @ 2:20 PM
According to legal experts, the evidence presented by the police after Suraj Pancholi was interrogated, led them to express serious doubts on whether police can build a case of abetment to suicide in court.
According to one lawyer police need to find more substantial circumstantial evidence before arresting Pancholi.
Suraj's mother Zarina Wahab also questioned the 6-page purported suicide note written by Jiah Khan, and rubbished the reports that she and Suraj had a live-in relationship, saying the girl only visited. She commented that it was Jiah's mother's responsibility to counsel the 25 year old, and the reports that Jiah was abused by Suraj, 22, were certainly questionable.

Tourism Minister Chiranjeevi’s security men beat up two in road rage
Report dated 12/05/2013 @ 2:06 PM
The two hapless techies who were badly beaten up in a brawl recently, were in fact attacked by megastar turned Union Minister Chiranjeevi's security Wing. This discovery has raised the suspicion that the Union minister was somewhere close by when the brawl took place.
In fact the Supreme Court had recently ordered that security men should be withdrawn for VIP duties unless the particular VIP has a security threat perception, which Chiranjeevi does not.
Chiranjeevi has kept very quiet over the whole controversy but his son Teja, a film star has been blaming the two techies.
Analysts in the complicated complaint and situation averred that the techies complaint was not registered because it was cops against whom the complaint was made. Instead the badly beaten techies were advised not to insist on filing a complaint. As a result of this the scared techies are seeking to underplay the whole episode.
It all boils down to the political ploys of not just Chiranjeevi but also CM Kiran Kumar and other dissident ministers who are naming Chiranjeevi as their Congress chief ministerial candidate for the 2014 elections.
