Probe Agencies Failed To Unmask Masterminds Of Dabholkar’s Murder: Court

The investigating agencies could not expose the masterminds behind the murder of rationalist Dr Narendra Dabholkar, and must introspect whether it was a mere failure or a "deliberate inaction" due to the influence of any "person in power," the trial court here said on Friday in its judgement. The two assailants, who were convicted, were not the masterminds, Additional Sessions Judge P P Jadhav observed in the verdict. The special court for UAPA cases convicted assailants Sachin Andure and Sharad Kalaskar in the 2013 murder case and sentenced them to life imprisonment, but acquitted alleged conspirators Dr Virendrasinh Tawde, Sanjeev Punalekar and Vikram Bhave for want of evidence. In his order, judge Jadhav noted that there was evidence about motive for the murder against Tawde, and reason...

US Report Criticises Israel But Does Not Block Arms

A long-awaited State Department report on Friday said that Israel likely violated norms on international law in its use of US weapons but it did not find enough evidence to block shipments.

The State Department finally submitted its report two days after President Joe Biden publicly threatened to withhold certain bombs and artille...
