? Bhaiyalal Bhotmange, the lone survivor of the 2006 Khairlanji massacre, died today at the Shree Radhakrishna Hospital & Research Institute, Nagpur following a cardiac arrest.
? In September 2006, four members of the Dalit Bhotmange family ? Surekha (Bhaiyalals wife), Priyanka (Bhaiyalals daughter), Sudhir and Roshan (Bhaiyalals sons) were killed in Khairlanji village in Bhandara district by members of politically powerful Kunbi Maratha caste. The accused had reportedly also paraded the women naked in the village before killing them.
? While some reports suggested that the killings were carried out as Surekha a day earlier had lodged a police complaint against the accused over a land dispute, it was also reported that the killings were carried out because of the caste discrimination.
? The massacre gained nationwide attention after riots in Nagpur. In September 2008, Bhandara High Court gave death sentence to six people related to the killings, however in July 2017, the Nagpur Bench of High Court commuted the death penaly for the six accused to rigorous life imprisonment.

Kejriwal accuses PM Modi of waving off huge loan defaulters ‘behind closed doors’
In a recent interview, Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal spoke on BJP’s corruption allegations on AAP. He said, ‘BJP accuses us of corruption, they have not found one paisa. They have filed 167 cases against AAP leaders over the last 7 years, out of which not one has been proved in court.’
There were protests by Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) employees due to delayed salaries. Following which, BJP accused AAP for not releasing funds. To which Kejriwal replied, ‘In the last 5 years, we have given ₹one lac cr to Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD).. ask them (BJP) where it is now? kha gaye saara’ He added, ‘Give me CBI and ED for 24 hours, and more than half of the BJP party will be in jail’
Kejriwal further stated, ‘Modi ji gives free ki revdi, I do that too. While he does it for the rich, I do it for the public. He is waiving off huge loan defaulters behind closed doors. I do it openly for the benefit of the people. Providing schools and hospitals to the public is not free ki revdi, these acts are called as punya in Hinduism.’
If I make a film with Salman, there’s a risk. If it’s a hit, it’ll be his, if it’s a flop, daddy ki hai: Salim Khan
Salim Khan is one legendary screenwriter of Indian cinema. And also a doting father of his five kids – Salman, Arbaaz, Sohail, Alvira and Arpita Khan. Be it supporting his kids, to making them realise the value of money and fame, he’s done all. He has also been an inspiration to many.
Few years back, Salim Khan was asked in an interview why he never penned a script for his own son, Salman. The legendary screenwriter had a perfect answer, “When a person goes to anybody, they say, ‘I’ve an amazing script. You just hear it’. The other person might wonder, if you really have such an amazing script, why don’t you make it with your son. And if I make a film with Salman, there’s a risk. If it’s a hit, it will be his, and if it’s a flop, daddy ki hai.”
When asked about his retirement plans, he stressed on the fact that he doesn’t feel he can ever. Thanks to his five kids – Salman, Arbaaz, Sohail, Alvira and Arpita – they all turn up to him for everything. “They come to me for everything. If there’s no petrol in their vehicle, they come to me. What can I do about the petrol? If their vehicle isn’t working, they come to me. Koi income tax ka notice aaye toh daddy ke paas leke jao. Toh mujhe fursat hi nahi milti. There are times when I get a call at night 11 that ‘daddy, they want to meet you’. Hence, I’ve stopped writing,” revealed Salim Khan.
He admitted that he got stuck in his personal life duties so much, that he can’t dedicate time to writing. “I now feel I can’t give so much time to my writing. I won’t be able to write professionally. Earlier I would do it with dedication and focus, now I can’t, so I thought better I give up. And I’m in a happy space now,” he signed up.
