Mayhem in Class 10 A
By a Student Reporter
Powai, 7th March 2015: Two students of Class 10 B were reprimanded by the teacher on account of their bad behaviour and were taken to the principal‘s office yesterday. The students Ganesh Apte and Manish Tilwani were caught by the headmistress Mrs. Fonseca wrestling in the class.
Students say that it was a case of a simple game gone wrong. Yesterday, the two were playing ‗Truth or Dare‘ when the former dared the latter to call a classmate by an offensive name. His reluctance to do so caused his friend to poke fun at him. This resulted in a war of words and the two started pummelling each other.
The principal did laud Manish for refusing to perform the odious ‘dare’ but ultimately held him responsible for being the first person to react violently. The parents of the students will be called tomorrow for a meeting with the principal.

Q. A leopard has been rescued from a well by wildlife activists. Report the rescue operation.
Big Cat Rescued in Ghunghuni Village
By Hiten Sharma
Ghunghuni, 13th March 2021: A leopard was rescued from a well here yesterday at 8 am. In a rescue operation that lasted 3 hours, the animal was finally retrieved from the well where it lay for 10 hours.
The Mandal family members were awakened by growls emanating from their well in the wee hours of the morning. Uttam Mandal, the patriarch of the family, flashed some light into the well and found the wounded feline in neck-deep water.
Dr. Pankaj Nag, a leading zoologist who has recently written a paper on the preying habits of leopards, was called to the spot. His assistants shot a tranquillizer to sedate the leopard.
Afterwards, Dr. Nag was lowered into the well with a help of a pulley to retrieve the sedated animal. The operation was a success. Dr. Nag said that leopards wander into human territory in search of smaller mammals to prey on. The feline may have targeted the Mandal family pet, a golden retriever.
In the process of stalking it, the leopard may have missed the well. “We ourselves are responsible for this situation. Rapid deforestation and human encroachment have caused the animals to showcase such aberrant behaviour.” The leopard is now under observation and will soon be released into the wild.

Once the money was withdrawn, he fled the spot.
The police have retrieved the CCTV camera footage where a middle-aged man is seen threatening Mrs. Biswas. Inspector Sinha and his team are close to the perpetrator‘s heel and have circulated his images in the newspapers. Sinha said, “We are certain that this man is a habitual offender.
