first_imgFollowing a Bihar village Panchayat order, a man was forced to lick his own spit and publicly beaten with slippers by two women for allegedly entering the house of an influential villager without knocking at the door first. After the incident went viral on social media on Friday, the district administration lodged a case against eight persons. The Opposition Rashtriya Janata Dal charged that law and order has collapsed in the State.Police said Mahesh Thakur, 54, of Ajnaura village under the Noorsarai Police Station of Nalanda district, entered the house of Surendra Yadav on Wednesday evening without knocking at the door. Mr. Thakur, a barber, said he had gone to get some tobacco. Mr. Yadav, an influential villager, said Mr. Thakur had ulterior motives, as only women in the family were present in the house at the time.On Thursday afternoon, the Panchayat held Mr. Thakur guilty. The video that went viral on social media showed Mr. Thakur in a pale white vest and faded blue lungi, standing in the middle of a group of people sitting on red plastic chairs and a wooden cot. Two women, wearing red saris, are also seen sitting in a corner. A voice is heard asking Mahesh Thakur to say that he would not repeat his mistake again and would enter a house after knocking or giving a call, “Otherwise, you would be sent to jail”. Mr. Thakur is heard saying he would obey. Then, suddenly, someone asks him to spit on the floor and lick it five times. Visibly shaken, Mr. Thakur is seen kneeling down and doing as told. Thereafter, someone asks the two women to beat Mr. Thakur five times. The women appear reluctant, but then proceed to beat him with a slipper. One beats him four times and the other thrice.“Prima facie it appears that Mahesh Thakur was subjected to humiliation. We have lodged a case against eight persons, including Surendra Yadav, Dharmendra Yadav and the mukhiya (headman) Dayanand Manjhi. The Noorsarai Police Station officer in-charge has been asked to investigate,” said Nalanda Superintendent of Police Sudhir Kumar Porika.last_img

Perth Scorchers beat Lahore, guide MSD’s Chennai into CLT20 semifinals

first_imgLahore Lions, needed a 46-run win against Perth, to push Chennai out of the contentionPerth Scorchers’ Mitchell Marsh not just stopped Lahore Lions from making it to the semifinals of the Champions League Twenty20 with a three-wicket win in their last group match here today but also paved the way for Chennai Super Kings’ entry into the last-four stage.Marsh scored an unbeaten 63 off just 38 balls with the help of seven boundaries and three sixes, besides putting up a crucial unbroken 68 runs with Brad Hogg (28 no; 19b 2X4 2X6)) to overhaul a modest target of 125 with six balls to spare at the Chinnaswamy stadium here. Earlier, the Scorchers had restricted the Pakistani side for a mere 124 for six in their allotted 20 overs and then reached 130 for seven in 19 overs.Had the Lahore Lions pulled off a victory by a margin of 46 runs against the Scorchers, they would have progressed to the semifinals by displacing Chennai Super Kings from second place in the Group A standings. Hogg hit Adnan Rosool for a six in the 14th over to knock Lahore out of the tournament, while sending CSK into the last-four stage.Kolkata Knight Riders were already through to the semifinals after topping Group A, having registered four victory in as many matches. The Lions needed to bundle out the Scorchers for 78 to make the semis but failed to contain their opponents. It was Scorchers bowlers who wreaked havoc as paceman Joel Paris (3/22) and Mitchell Marsh (2/12) shared five wickets between them.advertisementSaad Nasim top-scored for the Pakistani side with an unbeaten 69 off 55 balls, studded with five fours and a six. Put into bat, Lions lost three early wickets with just two runs on the board. Paris accounted for the wickets of the two openers in Nasir Jamshed (1) and Umar Siddiq (1), while Marsh saw off skipper Mohammad Hafeez (0) and Wahab Riaz (0) for a nought each to leave the Lions reeling at 11 for four.Nasim shared a 43-run fifth wicket stand with Umar Akmal (26) and then put on a solid 48 with Mohammad Saeed for the sixth wicket to bring the Pakistani outfit back on track and cross the 100-run mark.Meanwhile, play was interrupted for a brief while due to rain. Chasing a modest target, the Scorchers also did not have an ideal start as they lost seven wickets for just 62 runs on the board. The Scorchers kept losing wickets at regular interval with the top and middle order, barring opener Cameron Bancroft (22), failing to reach the double digit mark.At 62 for seven, the Lions had a realistic chance of bundling the Aussie unit out below 78 and advance to the next stage, but Marsh and Hogg combined to consolidate the innings and guide their team to a rather comfortable victory in the end. In the 19th over, Scorchers hit three sixes off Wahab Riaz — two by Hogg and one by Marsh — to wrap up the match quickly.For Pakistan, Mohammad Hafeez was the pick of the bowlers with impressive figures of two for eight in his allotted four overs.last_img

Will Google’s Marissa Mayer Be Good For Yahoo’s Culture?

We dug into the more than 950 Yahoo employee reviews to shed light on what the culture is like today before Mayer walks through the doors of this tech giant.  Below are just a few highlights into what Yahoo employees think is working well, what needs improvement and what advice they have to offer for their new CEO:Pros – Best Reasons to Work at Yahoo“Despite the attrition, the engineers there are smart and passionate.
