Mahendra Singh Dhoni, the former Indian cricket team captain, has announced his retirement from international cricket. He confirmed the same through an Instagram video who’s caption reads:

“Thanks. Thanks a lot for ur love and support throughout. From 1929 hrs consider me as Retired.”

Dhoni won 3 ICC trophies – 2007 T20 World Cup, 50-over World Cup in 2011, along with the 2013 ICC Champions Trophy. He also played the Semifinal of the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup. He announced his retirement from Test cricket in December 2014 but carried on to play ODIs and T20Is, leading India to the semifinals of the 2015 World Cup and the 2016 World T20. Dhoni is 5th in the list of India’s all-time run-scorers. Dhoni’s future was a hot topic of speculation since his sabbatical from cricket since India’s World Cup exit. Ever since the defeat to New Zealand, MS didn’t play any form of cricket.

He would be turning up in the 13th season of Indian Premier League (IPL) T20 where he will captain the evergreen Chennai Super Kings team.

Batsman Suresh Raina has also announced his retirement from international cricket, just minutes after former India captain MS Dhoni announced his retirement. “It was nothing but lovely playing with you, MS Dhoni. With my heart full of pride, I choose to join you in this journey. Thank you India. Jai Hind!” the 33-year-old wrote on Instagram while sharing a picture.

The Nagpur bench of the Bombay high court has set aside the conviction of a man who was found guilty under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act for groping a 12-year-old girl four years ago, committing his punishment.

“In view of the above discussion, this court holds that the appellant is acquitted under Section 8 of the Pocso Act and convicted under minor offence u/s 354 of IPC {Indian Penal Code} and sentenced him to undergo RI (rigorous imprisonment). for one year and to pay fine of ₹500/-, in default of fine to suffer RI for one month. The sentence for the offence punishable under Section 342 of the IPC i.e. six months and fine of ₹500/-, in default to suffer RI for one month, is maintained,” noted the bench.

The POCSO Act defines sexual assault as when someone “with sexual intent touches the vagina, penis, anus or breast of the child or makes the child touch the vagina, penis, anus or breast of such person or any other person, or does any other act with sexual intent which involves physical contact without penetration is said to commit sexual assault”.

On Monday a small group of protesters led by Mr Borah – claiming to be anti-beef activists – attempted to block the main gate at Guwahati Zoo as vehicles carrying beef for tigers were trying to pass. Zoo authorities managed to disperse them with help from the police, official sources said.

The protesters shouted slogans demanding a carpet ban on cow slaughter.

“In Hindu society we give importance to protection of cow, but it is the staple food for carnivores in the zoo and part of government supply. Our objection is – why serve beef? Why not other meat?” Mr Borah asked reporters.

After fake TRP manipulation racket by several news broadcasters, Parle Products and Bajaj have decided not to advertise on news channels that are broadcasting ‘toxic and aggressive content’

Industrialist Rajiv Bajaj, who is managing director of Bajaj Auto, also declared that his company has blacklisted 3 news channels for endorsing toxic content.

Last week, the Mumbai Police claimed to have busted a major TRP manipulation scheme by at least three TV channels, including Republic TV. Mumbai Police alleged that households were paid to keep channels switched on the entire day and boost the TRPs for certain channels.
