Father bites son in rage
INDIA: An assitant manager at a leading bank in Mumbai is facing charges of biting his nine-month-old son and assaulting his wife in a spell of rage.
According to a report published by Indian tabloid Mid-Day, Sanjay Borade, Assistant Manager with Development Bank of Singapore (DBS) was in an inebriated state when bit his on his cheek and then attacked his wife as he was asked to take care of the son.
The accused was arrested by Mumbai Police following his wife's complaint and is now out on bail.
The wife, Supriya, who is a doctor and runs a private clinic, has accused her husband to be uncaring and unfaithful.
The tabloid quoted a Supriya as saying that Sanjay has been fighting with her ever since they got married in June 2009, demanding dowry.
She accused him of having an affair with his colleague, which she found out by reading through the SMS messages on his mobile and he allegedly admitted to it. He reportedly never wanted a child and detests the nine-month-old so much that he hasn't still named him.
According to the FIR registered by Supriya against Sanjay on May 7, Sanjay was aided by his father Kacharu Borade and brother Vijay Borade, both of whom are not arrested yet.
Passengers told 'too fat to fly'
DALLAS: An airline has apologised to two passengers who were banned from their flight for being "too fat" but then told they could board on one condition: they had to sit next to another overweight person.
Kenlie Tiggeman and her mother Joan Charpentier were on a stopover at Dallas Airport in the US last month when the incident occurred, reports news website news.com.au.
As the duo waited for their flight, an airline employee allegedly told them that they were "too fat to fly", says the website.
The conversation developed into a 45-minute confrontation - in front of other passengers - over the airline's weight restrictions.
Tiggeman told the website that she was humiliated by the incident.
She said that she was bemused by the ban as she is able to sit in any airline seat with the armrests down "without encroaching on the seat next to me" and can place the tray table down comfortably, the website quoted Tiggeman.
The pair were eventually told they could board the flight - but only if they sat with a third overweight woman in a row.
A supervisor intervened and told the women they could board the flight without purchasing extra seats. They were given vouchers and an apology, the website reported.
