Crazy World: Ice cream parlour owner seen relieving in juice jar
INDIA: The owner of an ice cream parlour was seen relieving himself into a jar used for preparing juices in Panaji.
An anonymous person had made a video clip of the owner in action and tipped off the police by sending them a CD containing two clips that highlighted the unsavioury practices being carried out in an eating joint, reports The Times of India.
However, police officials say that the clipping is not very clear and those who saw the video claim that a man's back is visible where he is 'handling a container'.
A team of health inspectors went to the parlour and found the place to be a health hazard and ordered it shut. The owner has been put to task and has been asked to ensure that the place is given a makeover before it can be opened to public again.
Women singled out for strip searches at airport
For carrying 200-pounds in cash or for buying ticket a day before they travelled
A report has found irregularities in the way strip searches were conducted at Gatwick Airport. It says that too many Afro-Caribbean women were singled out for the humiliating strip searches, according to Daily Mail.
The report also found that in many cases the searches were not properly recorded.
The government's chief inspector of immigration says that 54 per cent of women who were stopped and inspected were later strip searched compared with only 20 per cent of men.
Some of the reasons why the women were strip searched include buying the ticket only the previous day or carrying 200-pounds in cash or just because some passengers claimed they were visiting Britain to look for hair and beauty products.
The report says that the above reasons are insufficient even for a stop and search, leave alone a strip search.
Wife hires hitmen to beat heir husband to death
Man was to inherit Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami Beach, which featured in films such as 'Goldfinger' and 'The Body Guard'.
A federal jury convicted a woman on Wednesday for directing hit men to beat to death her husband and his mother, heirs to a famed luxury Miami hotel, in an attempt to seize her husband's assets.
Narcy Novack, 55, and her brother Cristobal Veliz, 58, were found guilty of charges related to the grisly and fatal beatings in 2009 of Ben Novack Jr., and Bernice Novack, members of the family that built the Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami Beach, Florida, prosecutors said.
The verdict came after a nine-week jury trial at U.S. District Court for Southern District of New York in White Plains. Narcy Novack and Veliz were convicted of racketeering, conspiracy, and four counts of violent crime in aid of racketeering.
Both face up to life in prison in sentencing set for Nov. 1.
"These defendants, modern day 'public enemies,' planned, orchestrated, enlisted accomplices and assisted in the brutal killing of Ben Novack, Jr. ... and his mother," Westchester County District Attorney Janet DiFiore said in a joint statement made with the US Attorney's office.
Ben Novack Jr, 52, was the son of the man who built the sprawling hotel in Miami Beach in 1952. The resort has provided the backdrop for scenes in films such as "Goldfinger," "The Body Guard," and "Scarface."
Prosecutors said Narcy Novack and her brother were motivated by greed when they hired the hit men.
Ben Novack Jr. died of asphyxiation and blunt force trauma in July 2009 in a hotel room in Rye Brook, New York, after two of the men hired by Narcy Novak and Veliz struck him with dumbbells and used a box cutter to cut his eyes, the statement said.
Narcy Novack, who let the men into the hotel room, gave them a pillow to muffle her husband's screams as they used duct tape to cover his mouth and tied him up, the statement said.
Bernice Novack, 86, was attacked in April 2009 in the garage of her home in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. She was hit in the head and mouth with a monkey wrench and died shortly after on the floor of her home, the statement said.
After the deaths, Narcy Novack stole about $100,000 from her husband's company and laundered most of the funds through bank accounts in Florida and New York, the statement said.
Both of the men who carried out the attacks have pleaded guilty and await sentencing. (Reuters)
