Interpol notice

Patna: The Interpol issued a red-corner notice on Friday against Devesh, a prime suspect in the murder of his stepmother and two stepsisters at Indrapuri in Patna.

City superintendent of police Jayant Kant said the cops had approached the CBI to get a red-corner notice issued by the Interpol as Devesh had fled to Toronto in Canada. “A police team was sent to Delhi as Devesh was expected to return to the national capital on December 25,” he said.

Apology demand

Patna: Rajya Sabha member and BJP spokesman Rajiv Pratap Rudy said on Friday that senior leaders of the Congress should apologise to the people of the country for the unsavoury remarks by the party MP from Jangipur, Bengal, Abhijeet Mukherjee, on public outcry over the gang rape of a 23-year-old Delhi girl. “I fail to understand why the Congress leadership is still silent over the issue,” he said. In Patna, Rudy said he expected that Congress spokespersons would clear the party’s stand on the issue soon. He also sought an apology from the CPM leaders Sitaram Yechuri and Brinda Karat. “When the whole nation is fighting for the dignity of women, such statements tell a sad story of Indian politics,” he added.
