The incident happened on May 19, Sunday, outside the Trichy Famous Biryani restaurant.The victim, identified as Abdullah, had taken his passenger to Trichy Famous Briyani restaurant. He waited for her outside the restaurant while she went inside to pick her parcel. During that time, an inebriated man bumped into the woman on purpose, revealed Tashmin Banu, the victim’s wife.”My husband immediately questioned the man and the people with him, and then, a tussle ensued. They hit each other and then the drunk man left, threatening to bring more people. But my husband didn’t take it seriously. However, he did come back with three men and they all hit him till he died. They used a wooden plank to beat his head,” Tashmin told The News Minute.However, when the Srirangam Assistant Commissioner of Police, K Ramachandran, was contacted, he brushed off the incident, saying that Abdullah was also inebriated and got into a fight with the other men who were also drunk.”Abdullah was also inebriated and he died because he was pushed to the ground and sustained head injuries. It was not a big fight…The man who allegedly harassed this woman is Nagarajan, who was also drunk,” Ramachandran said.Tashmin, on the other hand, is very confident that her husband would never drive when he is intoxicated. She questioned why the police were saying that he too was drunk. She said, “All he did was fight against people harassing a woman and there is nothing wrong in that. Not even one person in that restaurant came to help him and now the police are saying this.”
Kolkata: The children have trespassed into the domain of the adults but their parents do not mind, at least in this case. As the lion’s share of reports in media, particularly television, and discussions among people in public transport and at home revolves around the on-going Lok Sabha elections, children take note and improvise it in their own way. They have invented a new game — the “vote-vote game” — that they play in their pool car while going to or returning from school.

So we are playing vote-vote game,” said Samadrita, a 10-year-old girl who studies in class 5. She plays this new game with her friends in the pool car — Trisrota, Nabanita, Ayush, Vidissa, Soumili and others — who are students of two-three schools in the north eastern part of Kolkata. Asked to whom people vote, they said in unison: “Parties”. They do know names of parties. “Trinamool… BJP… Congress..,” said Nabanita, a class 4 student. They came to know from their parents that someone becomes the prime minister after election. So, how is this vote-vote game?

Trisrota said they elect the prime minister by raising their hands and counting them. And in case of a tie, the “driver uncle” of the pool car is entitled to a casting vote. “Even I have to listen to the prime minister. I play the song the prime minister wants to listen to. The prime minister also gets the first share of tiffin,” Prabir Haldar, 30, who drives a pool car, said with a smile. Parents of these children said their wards get excited to inform them about the result of the game. “My son was very excited after returning from school the other day. He was elected the prime minister,” said Shrabani Dutta, mother of Ayush, a class 3 student. “He asked a lot of questions about elections and political parties. He even asked to which party I am going to vote,” she said. Psychologist Shreya Ghosh said children are by nature curious and they learn from their surroundings. “But parents must take care that the game remains as such. Children try to emulate what they see. They should not indulge in the ugly sides of elections like fights,” she said.
