Mumbai: The Mumbai crime branch, currently investigating the suitcase murder case, received a jolt on Saturday when it emerged that the main accused Rinki (name changed to protect identity) was in fact, a minor. However, sources in the crime branch say she could be tried as an adult in court.Rinki was arrested on December 2, along with her 16 year old boyfriend, for allegedly killing her 'adopted' father, 59 year old Bennet Rebello, a musician. According to a crime branch officer, they are likely to appeal to the court to try the juvenile girl as an adult, considering the heinous nature of the crime. Her minor tag should not be seen as a mitigating factor, say officers.

In its early days, Buttigieg s campaign dazzled pundits and the donor class with a welcome serving of fresh Capricorn at every turn. But he s lost his shine in recent weeks. His polling numbers have dipped from double digits to a tire spinning fifth place in the 4% 5% range, just barely outperforming the remaining lower tier candidates like Sen. Cory Booker (D N.J.) or former Rep. Beto O Rourke (D Texas). In other words, the one time media darling s star is beginning to fade. He needed a jolt. A moment.He didn t get one. Or, at least, not the one he deserves.

Hammarskj ld s death is one of many unsolved mysteries in Cold Case Hammarskj ld, a twisty, thorny new documentary that grips, jolts and exasperates in roughly equal measure. It s the latest work from Mads Br gger, a Danish filmmaker with Michael Moore s knack for confrontation and some of his countryman Lars von Trier s impishness. Starting with The Red Chapel, his 2010 peek behind the walls of present day North Korea, he has carved out a lively if murky nonfiction niche for himself: He delights in storming into conflict zones and playing both the dogged muckraker and the self aggrandizing showman.This is not the first time Br gger has taken up a camera or stepped in front of it to expose political and financial corruption on the African continent, as he did in 2011 s The Ambassador. Nor is it the first time he has so brazenly (and, it must be said, entertainingly) blurred the lines between investigation and provocation, personal memoir and geopolitical thriller. In Cold Case Hammarskj ld, he seems to take particular relish in both exploiting and undermining the conventions of the detective procedural. As he tracks down witnesses and pores over old documents and photographs, he narrates and theorizes up a storm, annotating and interrogating his own unruly process at every turn.

That the BJP would bag 18 of the state 's 42 Lok Sabha seats, reducing the regional outfit to 22 from its 2014 showing of 34 was a jolt for many Trinamool leaders. Now the party stares at regular defections orchestrated by Mukul Roy, Trinamool 's former number two and now a key BJP strategist who knows the rival party inside out and its vulnerable points. Trinamool leaders are vocal about how infighting and sabotage crippled the party 's prospects. ”I lost not because of the BJP, but because of my own people, ” a former Trinamool MP told her colleagues last week at the party office in Parliament. Another senior MP was candid that if he didn 't have his own base and popularity, the BJP would have swept his seat. Trinamool 's Lok Sabha leader Sudip Bandopadhyay dismissed such talk and pointed out, ”Despite being in power, we increased our vote share by 4 percentage points. It 's no joke. Our tally of 22 MPs is not a lean figure for an opposition party. ”
Folk horror is the label often applied to this especially pagan variety of creepfest, a subgenre that peaked in the early 1970s with the enduring town with a secret mystery The Wicker Man. It s not a huge leap for Ari Aster, the diabolically gifted filmmaker at the helm of Midsommar. Hereditary, his harrowing shocker of a debut, also built its scares on the insidious machinations of a cult. But its horror was anthropological in another sense: As effective and expertly orchestrated as the haunted house jolts were, the film s true down to the bone terror lay in what it found festering in the recesses of its heroine s mind, a bubbling cauldron of grief and resentment. It was a scary movie about how truly scary it can be to live inside your own head.
