Today morning was reading the Times of India, when i came upon this article/story item...
The woman in the news is Mrs SUMANTH MALHOTRA, wife of an additional commissioner in Customs and Central Excise who was stabbed by a guy who wanted to rob her, but she fought him, etc etc....
At 4 pm on Friday, Malcker came to Malhotra’s house when Sumanth was alone
But Sumanth refused any help. Suddenly he thrust his hand through the narrow opening, pushed her inside and entered the house.
Couple of minutes later, i picked up The Hindu , ya we buy both.. TOI cos i like the supplement[ who wouldn't right- all the yummy comics, puzzles...lol] and we continue getting The Hindu [old habits die hard.. ;)
anyways, back to the purpose of my post.... Ahh, yes.. i saw the same news item here as well....
According to police sources, a youth approached Suman Malhotra, wife of Malhotra, Additional Commissioner of Customs and Central Excise
You must be wondering why i have posted same stories occurring in two papers as a post, right? well, hang on.. am not done yet..... the BIG difference in these two news items was.... DID YOU SEE IT?????? Whoaaa.. i was STUMPED.... How can the papers make such a daring mistake????
Did they even talk to the lady or was it all just hearsay??? A que that popped in my head... and which one is the REAL name??? What would the LADY have to say upon reading the news items?
Sad state of media!.. I mean, this is just one example of a goof up... there is so much, i wouldn't know where to start...
Yech... just wish the guys doing the Editing and Reporting pay more attention!!!
