1. Mobile Games Addict son Kills Father who Objected to it

Raghuveer Kumbar, 21, an unemployed diploma-holder who was addicted to mobile games, killed his father who objected to his gaming. Raghuveer chopped off the head and the left leg of Shekarappa Revappa Kumbar, 61, in Kakati village early on Monday.

Shekarappa, who retired as an office staff from the police department four months ago, had advised his son against mobile game addiction several times. On Sunday, Shekarappa scolded the youth after he found him immersed in games for hours. This irritated Raghuveer who went out and threw stones at his neighbour's glass windows.

2. Five Terminally ill Kids Turn Police Commissioners for a Day

The five children who were made police commissioners. 

Neatly dressed in khaki uniform, replete with police badges, shiny shoes and belt, five terminally ill children took charge of the Bengaluru police department and assumed the Commissioner’s office for a day. It was a dream come true for the five children, who wished to grow up to be a police officer someday.

The wishes of the children — four boys and one girl — were fulfilled thanks to the joint efforts of the police department and Make a Wish Foundation, a voluntary organisation working to fulfill the wishes of children with life-threatening illnesses.

Before entering the Commissioner’s office, the children were given a ceremonial welcome by the police when they arrived at Bengaluru Police Headquarters. They were then taken on a tour to see the police control room, the dog squad and were also given walkie talkies and a ride in a police jeep.

3. Shivakumar’s Arrest: Karnataka BJP Chief Points Fingers at Former CM Siddaramaiah

CM HD Kumaraswamy and Congress leader Siddaramaiah. 

Former Karnataka chief minister Siddaramaiah could have been behind the arrest of Congress troubleshooter DK Shivakumar in the money laundering case, newly appointed BJP state president Nalin Kumar Kateel has alleged.

Speaking to reporters, Nalin Kateel said Shivakumar’s house was raided by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) when the Congress was at the helm of affairs in Karnataka in 2017. Siddaramaiah was the chief minister of the state then.

I think Siddaramaiah did this because he saw DK Shivakumar's growth, that's the reason Siddaramaiah might be behind DK Shivakumar's arrest, Nalin Kateel said.

4. How Chandrayaan Orbitor Located Vikram & What Is Its Next Mission?

Chandrayaan 2 orbiter.

Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) now has a photograph and the location of the Vikram Lander, which it had lost communication with during the Chandrayaan-2 mission. Although identifying the lander brings relief to ISRO, it has so far been unable to establish communication with it.

ISRO Chairman K Sivan said attempts to establish communication will continue for 14 days. While this process is underway, the focus is slowly shifting to the orbiter, which is still operational.

ISRO had announced that the orbiter, which was designed for a mission life of one year, now has an extended life span of seven years, because the systems worked without any glitch and the trajectory was followed to the point that enough fuel was left. Scientists at ISRO are now looking at options to optimise this extended life span of the orbiter to study the moon further.
