Former Gujarat minister of state for home, Amit Shah, is likely to be arrested again as the investigation in Tulsiram Prajapati fake encounter case reaches a decisive phase.It is learnt that the CBI has stumbled upon crucial evidence which may spell serious trouble for Shah, who was arrested last year in connection with the Sohrabuddin fake encounter case.The CBI maintains that the killing of Prajapati was a sequel to Sohrabuddin Sheikh fake encounter involving senior police officers of Gujarat and Rajasthan and was carried out to destroy evidence.The investigating agency has further alleged that Shah had conspired with the policemen to eliminate Prajapati as he was the main witness in the fake encounter.Sohrabuddin was allegedly running an extortion racket on behalf of the then Ahmedabad DCP (crime) Abhay Chudasama, who was allegedly Shah’s point man. He was also involved in blackmailing the marble lobby of Rajasthan and was killed in a staged encounter by the Gujarat Police on November 26, 2005.Chudasama was later arrested by the CBI. Sources said that Shah not only conspired to eliminate Prajapati but also allegedly orchestrated his killing. “Just before Prajapati was killed, D.G. Vanzara was posted as DIG (Border Range) at Banaskantha. It was an out of turn posting,” the source said, adding that Prajapati was killed within ten days of Vanzara taking over the charge.”Such senior posting has to be cleared by the MoS (home), who at that point was Amit Shah. The question that comes up is what caused such an out of turn posting,” the source said, adding that the CBI has found evidence of collusion between Shah and Vanzara for this posting.advertisementPrajapati, who was lodged in the Udaipur Jail, was reportedly attacked in the prison on March 25, 2006.Within days of Vanzara taking over, summonses were issued to the Rajasthan Police asking Tulsi to be present in the Ahmedabad court in connection with the Popular Builder shooting case. On his way back to Rajasthan on December 27, 2006, Tulsi was shot dead near the Rajasthan border.The state police had filed a chargesheet in the Prajapati encounter case three-and-ahalf years after the incident. It is learnt that the CBI is also probing the role of the state CID, which was allegedly used to mislead the investigation.Interestingly, the CBI in its chargesheet filed in the Sohrabuddin fake encounter case had maintained that the shootout at Popular Builders office in Ahmedabad was also stage managed by the Gujarat Police in December 2004 to allegedly create a viable criminal ground justifying Sohrabuddin’s killing.The Gujarat Police had named the Patel brothers – owners of Popular Builders – as the main accused in the case and had also implicated Prajapati and Sylvestor, associates of Sohrabuddin.The CBI had also said that the motive behind implicating them was merely to extort money from the Patel brothers at the behest of Shah, Vanzara and Chudasama.The investigating agency had reiterated its allegations once again before the Supreme Court in March this year when it sought merger of Sohrabuddin Sheikh and Tulsiram Prajapati encounter cases.The Supreme Court had barred Shah from entering Gujarat after he was released on bail in October last year, fearing he might influence the witnesses.For more news on India, click here.For more news on Business, click here.For more news on Movies, click here.For more news on Sports, click here.
Kolkata Knight Riders produced a disciplined bowling display as they beat Auckland Aces by two runs in a thrilling low-scoring Champions League Twenty20 qualifiers match in Hyderabad on Monday. ScoreElecting to bat, KKR scored a modest 121 for six after they suffered a batting collapse but their bowlers produced a superb show to restrict Auckland to 119 for six in a match that went down the wire after many twist and turns.Auckland lost their first wicket in the first ball of their run chase, recovered at 60 for one and then slumped to 61 for four in the 10th over. They were still in for an upset victory but with pressure piling they eventually fell short by two runs at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad.Auckland needed 11 runs from the last over bowled by Brett Lee but they could score just eight runs.KKR used as many as seven bowlers and all of them did well, either taking wickets or bowling economically. Yusuf Pathan was the picked of the KKR bowlers with figures of 2/21 — the two wickets coming in the space of three balls.Rajat Bhatia and captain Jacques Kallis chipped in with a wicket each.KKR fielding also rose to the occasion with two crucial run outs.Auckland run chase began on a disastrous note with Martin Guptill run out in the very first ball of the innings bowled by Iqbal Abdulla.Adams played towards midwicket and Guptill wanted a single but Ryan ten Doeschate’s throw was quick enough for wicketkeeper Manvinder Bisla to removed the bails.advertisement

It marked only the second time that the NBA’s Raptors and NHL’s Maple Leafs won a playoff game on the same day; the Leafs won in Boston. The only other time that happened was April 26, 2001 — the day when the Raptors got their first postseason victory.GOVERNOR SPEAKSFlorida Gov. Ron DeSantis and the state’s first lady Casey DeSantis were in attendance and received Magic “46” jerseys — a nod to his being the 46th governor of the Sunshine State. The governor and Magic CEO Alex Martins spoke pregame about the hope for Orlando to get another All-Star Game soon, though all through 2022 has already been awarded to other Eastern Conference cities — and Milwaukee, another East city, has expressed interest in 2023.UP NEXTGame 4 is Sunday night in Orlando.

Empty possessions for us and against a team like that you can’t have that.”The Raptors trailed 61-60 midway through the third after a brief Orlando spurt, then went on a 16-0 run over the next four minutes to take the lead for good. Siakam and Green were both 3 for 3 during the run, the Magic missed 10 consecutive shots over a span of 6 1/2 minutes and had to play uphill the rest of the way.That being said, they went down swinging.Lowry’s 3-pointer with 7:48 left gave Toronto its biggest lead at 86-69. The Magic came flying back, and Ross’ 3-pointer with 41 seconds left got Orlando to 96-93.Leonard was short with a jumper on the next possession — but the Magic couldn’t control the rebound, Lowry ran it down and Leonard made a pair of free throws with 12.9 seconds remaining to clinch the win.“Critical,” Magic coach Steve Clifford said.Orlando, which finished the regular season by winning 13 of its final 14 home games, was 13 of 44 from 3-point range.Toronto scored the first 10 points — the last five by Siakam, who was a problem from the outset for the Magic — and led by as many as 11 in the first half. The Magic got within 48-45 at the break after Ross beat the clock from midcourt at the buzzer.The Magic got the lead twice in the second half, once by one point, the other by two points. And both leads lasted exactly 15 seconds, getting taken away on 3-pointers by Siakam and Green.And now it’s up to Orlando to regroup, the same way Toronto did after dropping Game 1.

DefinitionPerichondritis is an infection of the skin and tissue surrounding the cartilage of the outer ear.Causes, incidence, and risk factorsCartilage is the thick tissue that creates the shape of the nose and the outer ear. All cartilage has a thin layer of tissue around it called the perichondrium. This covering helps provide nutrients to the cartilage.The most common bacteria that causes perichondritis infection is Pseudomonas aeruginosa.Perichondritis is usually caused by injury to the ear due to ear surgery, ear piercing (especially piercing of the cartilage), or contact sports. Ear piercing through the cartilage is probably the most significant risk factor today. Surgery, burns, and acupuncture also increase the risk of infection.Perichondritis can cause severe damage to the ear structure if it becomes chondritis — infection of the cartilage itself.SymptomsA painful, red ear is the most common symptom. At first the infection will look like a skin infection (cellulitis), but it quickly worsens and involves the perichondrium.The redness usually surrounds an area of injury, such as a cut or scrape. There may also be fever, and — in more severe cases — fluid draining from the wound.Signs and testsPerichondritis is diagnosed based on the persons medical history and by looking at the ear. If there is a history of trauma to the ear and the ear is red and very tender, then perichondritis is diagnosed. There may be a change in the normal shape of the ear. The ear may look swollen.advertisementTreatmentTreatment consists of antibiotics, either by mouth or directly into the bloodstream through an intravenous line (IV). If there is a trapped collection of pus, surgery may be necessary to drain this fluid and remove any dead skin and cartilage.Expectations (prognosis)What happens depends on how quickly the infection is diagnosed and treated. If antibiotics are taken early on, full recovery is expected. In more advanced cases, when the infection involves the ear cartilage (chondritis), part of the ear may die and need to be surgically removed. If so, plastic surgery may be needed to restore the ear to its normal shape.ComplicationsIf not treated early enough, the infection can spread to the ear cartilage. This would require removal of the damaged part and possibly surgery to restore it to a normal shape.Calling your health care providerIf you suffer any trauma to your ear (a scratch, blow, or piercing) and then develop pain and redness over the stiff part of the outer ear, contact your health care provider. You may need to take antibiotics.PreventionThe best way to prevent this infection is to avoid piercing your ear through the cartilage (as opposed to the ear lobe). The popularity of cartilage piercing has led to a significant increase in the number of perichondritis and chondritis cases.ReferencesGuss J, Ruckenstein MJ. Infections of the external ear.

Leicester keeper Schmeichel says being late bloomer is career motivationby Paul Vegas5 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveLeicester City goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel says being a late bloomer has helped his career motivation.The Dane made his international debut at 26, though is now regarded among the best keepers in the world. He reached a personal national team landmark last week against Switzerland. Schmeichel made super four saves in the 1-0 European Championships qualifying win.And the Foxes favourite admits his late career recognition is now working in his favour. At 32 years of age, Schmeichel insists he’s as ambitious and motivated as ever.Now boasting 50 caps, he was quoted by Bold as saying, “It was a big motivating factor that I was not involved in the national team earlier in my career, but I am grateful to be part of it now and it makes me proud to play 50 games for my country – now I just hope for 50 more.”If I don’t last five years, then I will be disappointed.”Indeed, while not taking anything for granted, Schmeichel is adamant that thoughts of retirement are far into the future. The goalkeeper, who is in his eighth year with Leicester, is determined to make the most of a period in his career where he is now reaching his peak. After spells with the likes of Darlington and Bury, Schmeichel is grateful for his current status in the game.He added: “You can’t plan in football. Anything can happen. You can get hurt tomorrow and not have the opportunity to come back, so you have to be grateful every time you are teamed up with the national team.”Every match I get in the Parken in front of such an audience, I am incredibly grateful for, because it happens so rarely. We must be proud of all the matches we can fight for the national team.”- updated 21/10 About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say

OSU junior left fielder Ronnie Dawson lays down a bunt during a game against Morehead State at Bill Davis Stadium on April 13. OSU won 7-3. Credit: Muyao Shen | Assistant Photo EditorFresh off its first Big Ten series victory of the 2016 season over Rutgers last weekend, the Ohio State baseball team (23-12-1, 4-5-0) is set to host the Cincinnati Bearcats (18-19) on Tuesday in a midweek meeting between in-state foes. The two teams faced each other a season ago, when OSU claimed a 6-0 victory behind a strong outing from then-redshirt freshman Adam Niemeyer. OSU coach Greg Beals will try to duplicate that performance by again sending a rookie pitcher to the mound, this time being Ryan Feltner in a controlled start against a to-be-determined Bearcat. The Scarlet and Gray, who are 14-2 at home this season, will be hoping to continue their dominance over visiting opponents with another win against the Bearcats. Scouting the BearcatsDespite losing three of its last five games, Cincinnati enters Tuesday’s game leading the American Athletic Conference. The Bearcats, however, are visiting with momentum behind them, as they won two of three games against conference foe Tulane over the weekend. Games outside of the Queen City have not been friendly for the Bearcats. In road or neutral contests, they have a combined travel record of 4-15. Cincinnati, statistically, is one of the worst hitting teams in all of Division I. Its team average of .239 ranks 267th of 295 teams. But the Bearcats have been able to produce some big runs courtesy of the long ball. Cincinnati has blasted 25 homers this season, good enough for third in the AAC. The Bearcats are led at the plate by the performance of redshirt sophomore infielder Connor McVey. The Mason, Ohio, native has been clawing away at the baseball with a .301 average, including a team-leading 10 doubles and 21 stolen bases. Cincinnati also has exceptional team speed along the base paths, having swiped 63 of 82 attempted bases to lead its conference. Buckeye bombsThe Buckeyes, in large part, have been powered by two things: controlled pitching and striking the long ball. OSU has already hit a Big Ten-leading 38 home runs, including a team-leading nine from newly converted first baseman Jacob Bosiokovic. The move of Bosiokovic, a redshirt junior, from the outfield has allowed for more versatility in the OSU lineup defensively and is aimed at increasing the production at the plate for the bottom of the lineup. With the lineup switch, senior second baseman L Grant Davis moves into a utility role, senior infielder Troy Kuhn takes over at second, and sophomore Tre’ Gantt takes over for Bosiokovic in right field. In total, OSU has four players with six or more homers, including junior center fielder Troy Montgomery and senior third baseman Nick Sergakis, who both have seven. In four games last week, the pair each tallied two homers, providing OSU with a much-needed spark to an offense that has been cooling down over recent weeks. Exceeding expectations Coming into this season, OSU’s pitching staff had several question marks surrounding the roles in the bullpen. Now, just past the halfway mark of the season, it would be safe to say the Buckeyes’ bullpen has performed well, outside of a disastrous two-blown-save series against Maryland. Redshirt sophomore closer Yianni Pavlopoulos is in a three-way tie for the lead in the Big Ten with eight saves, while relievers Daulton Mosbarger, Seth Kinker and Michael Horejsei all have ERAs south of 2.50. Perhaps most impressively, the Buckeye pitching staff leads the Big Ten with 296 punch-outs. On Tuesday, OSU will have to lean on its bullpen again, as Feltner will be on the hill on short rest after pitching the last three innings during Friday’s 7-4 loss to Rutgers. The game against Cincinnati is set to begin at 6:35 p.m.
