Top headlines picked from major newspapers for you

Aug 02, 2019 09:25 IST

Here's a wrap of the top stories picked from morning newspapers The Intelligence Bureau, Tihar jail authorities and the Delhi Police’s special cell are working together on a de-radicalisation programme for prisoners, Hindustan Times reported quoting a government official familiar with the project. The programme will also focus on ensuring that prisoners booked in terror cases do not succeed in radicalising other prisoners. The Times of India has reported that the Supreme Court-appointed mediation panel on Ayodhya has expressed its inability to resolve the issue. The mediation panel, in its report to the SC, has conveyed that they have failed to strike a consensus among rival parties and it was time to wind up the mediation process, the report said. The court is likely to fix a schedule for commencement day to day hearing of the case today The Indian Express has reported that the Assam government Thursday revealed district-wise figures of people left out from the National Register of Citizens. In districts close to the Bangladesh border — where the share of Muslims in the population is high — the exclusion percentage was lower, while in other districts it was comparatively higher. The government used this data to argue that the process was flawed. Both Centre and Assam govts had pleaded in SC to allow a 20% re-verification in districts closer to the Bangladesh border and 10% re-verification in others. Business paper Mint has reported that people in Japan will soon be able to find a quiet place to sit down and tap away on a laptop. Phonebooth-sized offices will be popping up at train stations, airports and skyscraper lobbies. An enclosure of 13 sq.ft, the soundproof Telecube will have a seat, desk and power outlets.
