>>“India hails Abdulla Yaameen’s victory” (Nov. 17, 2013) referred to Mr. Yaameen as the son-in-law of former long-time President Maumoon Abdul Gayoom. It should have been half-brother.
>>The report, “CRPF jawan booked for ‘leaking’ secrets to Maoists” (Nov. 16, 2013), talks about the arrest of an Assistant Commandant of a CRPF battalion. An Assistant Commandant cannot be called a jawan. The headline should have said “CRPF officer booked …” The text also should have referred to him as an officer.
>>A sentence in “Whose tribunal is it anyway?” (Nov. 15, 2013, Op-Ed page) read: “In L. Chandra Kumar vs The Union of India & Ors (1994), the Supreme Court said an independent agency for the administration of tribunals must be set up …” It should have been L. Chandra Kumar vs The Union of India & Ors (1997) .
