Google Engineer Who Was Mistaken For A Kidnapper, Beaten To Death In India

A Google engineer has been beaten to death in the latest attack sparked by false WhatsApp messages accusing people of kidnapping children in India.

Mohammad Azam was attacked along with two friends by a 2,000-strong mob in southern Karnataka state's Bidar district.

Police have arrested 32 people over the death - the latest in a string of lynchings caused by unfounded rumours of child abductions.

Azam's friends, including a Qatar national, were critically injured in the assault that came days after the Facebook-owned messaging service published advertisements in Indian newspapers offering tips to curb the spread of fake information on its platform.

More than 20 people have been lynched in India after being accused of child abduction in the last two months.

Police said 27-year-old Azam and his companions were returning to their home in neighbouring Hyderabad city after visiting a friend in Bidar when they stopped midway and offered chocolates to local school children.

'One of them had bought chocolates from Qatar and tried to offer it to the children as a token of affection,' Bidar deputy police chief V. N. Patil told AFP.

But one of the children started crying, alerting the elders who accused the men of being child kidnappers amid rife social media rumours about child kidnapping rings in the area, the officer said.

Patil said the three managed to flee but were attacked by a much larger mob a few miles ahead after locals alerted nearby villages via Whatsapp.

Their car flipped after hitting a roadblock placed by the angry mob before they were dragged out of the vehicle and beaten with sticks and stones.

A video broadcast on Indian news channels showed a policeman pleading with the attackers as they kicked and hit the victims with sticks.

Three policemen were injured in rescue attempts as the mob rampaged for nearly an hour.

Police said they have arrested 32 attackers and a manhunt is on for others. Some of the accused were identified from the attack video circulating on WhatsApp.

The Rock Reveals The Truth Behind ‘Beef’ With John Cena

The Rock has revealed where his once bitter rivalry with John Cena began and how they have now settled their differences.

Dwayne’ The Rock’ Johnson forged his name inside the squared circle as one of the biggest WWE superstars of all-time.

The 46-year-old is now Hollywood’s highest-paid actor and a global household name.

And now Cena is following in his footsteps. After years of dominating in WWE, the 16-time world champion is enjoying success on the silver screen.

The Rock has even cast him for a role in one of his upcoming movies, ‘The Janson Directive’.

But the pair, who fought back-to-back WrestleMania main events in 2012 and 2013, did not see eye-to-eye, The Rock has revealed.

"I had left, and John Cena had done a series of interviews," he speaking on US TV show 'Watch What Happens Live’ .

"I just felt, and somebody had referenced me and said, ‘hey, is Rock ever coming back’, and he said, ‘I’m not quite too sure’, and I just didn’t like how he said it, and it stuck with me.

"So, years later when I went back (to WWE), I talked to Vince McMahon and we thought, ‘well what if we took that and actually created this kind of thing,’ and I said ‘perfect’."

The Rock beat Cena at WrestleMania 28 before losing the WWE title to his rival a year later in New York.

They teamed up at WrestleMania 32 in Dallas and now The Rock insists their ‘beef’ is no more.

"I think we’ve squashed that (beef). As a matter of fact John is gonna star in one of my movies that I’m producing," he said.

"I think he’s going great, he’s done great in his transition and he really wants to continue to work hard."

Man Divorces Wife Of 14 Years After She Mocks Lionel Messi

Big sporting events like the World Cup are supposed to bring people together in support of their favourite teams and players, but for one Russian couple married for 14 years, the 2018 World Cup was reason for divorce.

40-year-old Arsen and his 37-year-old wife, Ludmyla, are both big football fans.

In fact, they met in a Chelyabinsk sports bar during the 2002 World Cup, and they bonded over their mutual passion for the sport.

The fact that they were fans of two rival Moscow football clubs, Spartak Moscow and CSKA Moskow, didn’t stop them from getting married, but last week, it was their love for the two biggest rivals in modern football history-Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo- that ended their 14-year marriage.

Arsen told Russian newspaper Argumenti I Fakty that he and his wife had often teased each other over Messi and Ronaldo, but this latest World Cup was the last straw. After Argentina’s disappointing debut at the 2018 World Cup, Ludmyla started mocking Messi’s performance, and how he couldn’t play football, but Arsen just ignored her.

However, during Argentina’s match against Nigeria, he just couldn’t hold back his anger anymore. He was celebrating Messi’s goal, when his wife started mocking his idol again, and he snapped.

“This was the last straw for me,” Arsen told a Chelyabinsk correspondent of Argumenti i Fakty.

“From the very beginning of the World Cup, Lyudmila constantly mocked me and my beloved player, saying that he played poorly and could not even score an important penalty in the game with Iceland. And during the match with Nigeria I was so worried for them (Argentina).

When she once again started speaking unkindly about Lionel’s performance, I got angry and, in turn, expressed everything I thought of her handsome Ronaldo, the Portuguese national team, herself and all the other football clubs Lyudmila is crazy about. Then I took all my things and left her for good.”

The next day, Arsen reportedly went to the Chelyabinsk civil registry and filed for divorce. I guess this is one case where the phrase irreconcilable differences means just that.

Governor Ortom Dumps APC

Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue state says he has ceased to be a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC), following what he called “a red card” given to him.

Ortom made this known on Monday in Makurdi shortly after swearing in a new Special Adviser on Bureau for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Mr Jerome Shimbe who replaced Mr Titus Zam, sacked on July 8.

According to him, the red card from APC will enable him to join any political party that has an ideology worthy of being adopted by his administration.

The governor stated that the strained relationship between him and the party under which he contested the 2015 governorship election in the state has left him without a party.

NAN reports that the governor partially dissolved his cabinet last week, retaining four out of the 16 commissioners and seven out of 19 Special Advisers.

Although, he gave no reason for the sacking of the members of the expanded cabinet members, it was reliably gathered that the sudden cabinet reshuffle might not be unconnected with the friction between him and the APC leader in the state, Senator George Akume.

A Female Fan Once Put Her Panties In My Pocket- Ramsey Nouah

Nigerian actor Ramsey Nouah has spoken out on an embarrassing incident that occurred while he was in the US.

Speaking to Punch,  Nouah revealed how a female fan and her drawers left him flustered in front of dignitaries.

“There was a cocktail event many years ago in the United States and I was talking to some dignitaries about business, work and other things when a lady came and whispered in my ear, ‘You’re so cute’ while slipping her hand in my pocket” he revealed. 

“As she left, I reached for my pocket to see what she had slipped in and right in front of these dignitaries, I pulled out the panties that she had put in my pocket” added Nouah.

“I didn’t know what to do because I couldn’t put it back in my pocket. It didn’t belong there, and I couldn’t just hold it in my hands. It was an awkward situation but we all just laughed it off."
