Varun Dhawan has landed in the crosshairs of Mumbai Police after the actor was photographed clicking, what cops seem to believe, a dangerous selfie with a fan on the streets of the megacity. In a tweet that strongly reprimanded Dhawan, the Mumbai Police said they have issued an e-challan over the actor's 'stunt'. "These adventures surely work on D (the) silver screen but certainly not on the roads of Mumbai!" The tweet was accompanied by a clipping of a local tabloid that carried photos of Varun Dhawan clicking the selfie in question. In the photos, Varun is seen leaning out of his car and clicking a selfie with a female fan, who is in an autorickshaw.

The NDA government signed a deal worth around Rs 59,280 crore with France in September 2016 under which France's Dassault Aviation would supply 36 planes to the Indian Air Force (IAF) in fly-away conditions to meet the force's emergency requirements. The first 18 planes under negotiations in the MMRCA tender would have cost 4.5 billion euros ( Rs 34,200 crore) approximately, they said. "Is it not true that as per the UPA negotiated price, the cost of one plane was Rs 526.1 crore whereas under NDA, the plane is costing Rs 1,570 crore?" Sources said the capping of inflation at 3.5 per cent as part of the deal signed in 2016 would also result in saving of a minimum 200 million euros (Rs 1,520 crore) in the times to come. They said there is no point comparing the cost of the Make in India component of the MMRCA deal as the cost of manufacturing in India is always very high and it would be unfair to compare.

The ride-hailing company has faced back-to-back accusations of sexual discrimination, bullying, intellectual property theft, all of which culminated with the departure of several executives including founder and CEO Travis Kalanick. What's more, all of this was known to ex-CEO Travis Kalanick, and yet the ousted founder did nothing about it. And the one person who keep recurring in these stories is Travis Kalanick. Despite his exit from the company and a new leadership under Dara Khosrowshahi, Uber is still very much lingering in Kalanick's shadow. Hopefully, the data breach story is the last of company's worst problems.

Experts on Wednesday warned against criminalising and labelling a four-year-old boy as a sexual predator because pre-puberscent children did not understand sexual behaviour. “We must understand that it is absolutely not possible for a four-year-old to understand sexual behaviour. Is there a possibility of a sexual need being fulfilled in his case? “Young children don’t need therapies we otherwise normally recommend for an adult.

After considerable hype and delays, the Moto X4 has arrived in India for quite a competitive price of Rs 20,999. At Rs 20,999, the Moto X4 slots in between the Redmi A1's and the Honor 8 Pro's of the world. At the risk of repeating myself, the 5.2-inch size goes a long way towards making the smartphone compact. The Moto X4's Achilles heelApart from a few minor issues here and there, the Moto X4 has come across as a great, compact mid-range smartphone up till now. The Moto X4 is a great smartphone let down by its cameras, which are underwhelming to say the least.
