TORONTO -- Police in India are on the hunt for a Toronto woman accused of paying four men -- including two lovers -- to kill her estranged husband.http://www.ctvnews.ca/canada/toronto-woman-accused-of-arranging-hit-on-estranged-husband-in-india-1.2916210
Pawandeep Kaur is wanted in the slaying of her husband Jaskaran Singh, who was fatally stabbed in March in the village of Sawara, in Kharar, in the Punjab region of India.
Gursharan Singh Grewal, the superintendent of investigations for SAS Nagar police, says one of the other suspects pointed the finger at Kaur during his interrogation.
He says the couple had a "strained relation" partly because Singh had spent the last few years in India rather than with his wife in Canada.
Grewal says Kaur was romantically involved with two of the suspects and police believe she wanted to seize control of her husband's property.
He says they have made a request for her extradition. A spokesman for Canada's Department of Justice said officials could neither confirm nor deny that such a request had been made.
Mawlawi Haibatullah Akhundzada is the new leader of the Taliban, the group announced Wednesday ........., although they don't expect too many reports about this guy since nobody can pronounce his name!
Carol Howarth was amazed when a swarm of over 20,000 bees flew down onto her silver Mitsubishi Outlander, covering the back end of the vehicle.
After returning to her car, Mrs Howarth drove home, only to discover on Monday morning that the swarm had followed her and were again covering the car.
A local beekeeper said: "I have been beekeeping for 30 years and I have never seen a swarm do that. It is natural for them to follow the queen but it is a strange thing to see and quite surprising to have a car followed for two days. It was quite amusing."
AND FINALLY: Like we said in the past folks, not all cops are good or bad, they just have to adapt to whatever life hands them!!!!!!
Here's a guy who, because of work related injuries, had to take an early retirement from the NYC police force and after months of wondering what to do for a job, decided to let lose his entrepreneurial spirit and go into business for himself!
http://www.msn.com/en-ca/news/world/feds-say-ex-policeman-ran-dollar2000-an-hour-prostitution-ring/ar-BBtqRDx?li=AAggFp5NEW YORK - A former police officer who retired on a disability pension ran a prostitution ring that charged customers as much as $2,000 (CAD 2622.93) an hour, federal prosecutors said Tuesday.
Federal prosecutors say the company advertised on more than 50 websites with names such as Lush Playmates. They say some clients spent more than $25,000 for a night.
According to a criminal complaint, Rizzi set up an email account to accept applications for the business and one applicant wrote, "I am a fun loving girl who loves sex... I love sex and if I can get paid for it why not?"
Rizzi set up face-to-face interviews with applicants, the complaint said, and when one woman didn't wish to meet for an interview he replied, "I'm sorry darling ... I'm number one for a reason. . I get the most business, my girls make the most money, my clients are the wealthiest people in the world. I will never send a model I haven't interviewed to them."
Rizzi pleaded not guilty in federal court on Tuesday and was released on $500,000 bond. He ran a legitimate business that provided only companionship, defence lawyer Javier Solano told The New York Times.
"There was no sex involved," [sic] Solano said.
