Cheque facility won't be withdrawn, says the govt
It is a matter of relief that the Union Government has clarified that cheque facility won't be withdrawn.

There were stray reports that an overenthusiastic government favaouring total digitalisation may go in for banning the cheque books.

It is gratifying to note that the government won't proceed with the reforms this way.

No safety for working girls? Techie girl found murdered
Is there no safety for working girls?

The murder of 25-year-old techie, K.Rasila Raju, working with Infosys was strangled with a computer cable at her office in Pune on Sunday. A security guard hailing from Assam was arrested this morning in Mumbai, taking a cue from CCTV camera pictures.

K Rasila Raju, a systems engineer from Kerala, was found lying on the floor inside a conference room on the ninth floor of the Infosys office in the Rajiv Gandhi Infotech Park in Hinjawadi last night.

She had a computer wire around her neck. The police say there were signs that she had also been struck hard on her face.

Bhabhen Saikia, the accused, worked as a security guard at Infosys.

On her day off, Ms Raju was working on a project and two of her teammates were online with her from the Bengaluru office. She had been working since 3 pm and had been constantly in touch with her colleagues, the police say.

In the evening, her supervisor in Bengaluru tried to call her but reportedly got no response. Around 10 pm, he called security and asked the guard to check on the engineer, who was found dead.

Infosys expressed shock and said it is providing all possible help to the police.

"We are saddened and shocked at this unfortunate incident and the loss of our colleague. Our prayers and sympathies are with our employee's family and friends. We are focused on assisting the police with their investigation and providing all possible support to her family," the IT major said in a statement.

This is the second murder of a techie in Pune in two months. Last month, 23-year-old Antara Das, an employee of Capgemini, was chased and repeatedly stabbed barely half a km from her office. Her former colleague and friend, based in Bengaluru, was arrested for the murder.
