'Was asked if I am Indian,' says Kanimozhi; Chidambaram backs DMK MP

DMK MP Kanimozhi has said that a CISF officer at the Chennai airport asked her if she was Indian, when she could not speak Hindi. The DMK MP said that they were going through security checking when she requested a CISF official to speak in Tamil or English since she did not understand Hindi. The DMK MP said that the officer then asked if she Indian at all and questioned since when is being Indian equal to knowing Hindi. The DMK MP's complaint led to the CISF ordering a probe into the incident. The DMK MP further said that the beauty of the country lies in its diversity and inclusiveness and condemned the incident. Meanwhile, former Union Minister and Congress leader P Chidambaram also came out in support of Kanimozhi and said that such incidents are not unusual. He added that he had faced similar incidents in the past. 'If the Central government is genuinely committed to both Hindi and English being the official languages of India, it must insist that all central government employees are bilingual in Hindi and English,' said Chidambaram.

'Sushant Singh Rajput was not on good terms with his father': Sanjay Raut

Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut stood by his remark on actor Sushant Singh Rajput and his father's relationship. The Shiv Sena leader said that Sushant was not on good terms with father KK Singh. Raut added that he has sympathies for Singh, but there are 'many things that will come to surface'. Earlier, Raut had made the same remark in an article published on Saamana. He is the associate editor of Sena's editorial mouthpiece Saamana. "It is true, how many times did Sushant go to Patna to meet his father? I have sympathy for his father but there are many things that will come to surface," Raut said. This comes as Sushant Singh Rajput's death case intensifies with the investigative agency Enforcement Directorate (ED) questioning actor Rhea Chakraborty again on Monday. The ED held a marathon session with her brother Showik on Saturday evening. The interrogation went on for nearly 18 hours and ended on Sunday morning. In another editorial on the case, Raut had slammed Centre for handing over the case to Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI). Raut said that the decision has been taken for political gains and as part of pressure tactics. Last week, in his weekly column Rokhthok, Raut said decision is an attack on state's autonomy.
