CPI(M) MLA Sushanta Ghosh,
facing trial in connection with the recovery of skeletons near
his ancestral house at Benachapra, was injured when a man
beat him up with a shoe at a local court here on Tuesday.
Noted film-maker Mahesh Bhatt, who is producing "The Last Salute", a play on the Iraqi journalist who threw a shoe at former US President George Bush, plans to visit the strife-torn country and meet him.
In a goodwill gesture to coincide
with the Holy Ramzan month, J and K Chief Minister Omar Abdullah pardoned suspended head constable Abdul Ahad
Jan who had flung a shoe towards him during a function and
ordered his release.
Their verdict may have helped
this quack who allegedly raped his cousin to get away with
just five shoe beatings, but 3 members of this panchayat
were arrested on charges of pardoning the accused in
Solana village here.
