Delhi woman kills 62-year-old handicapped mother-in-law

first_imgA 29-year-old woman allegedly killed her 62-year-old handicapped mother-in-law on Tuesday at their residence in Mandawali’s Shanti Nagar because she was “tired of being abused”. The accused was arrested on Wednesday, the police said.The police said Kanchan Kapoor first attacked her mother-in-law, Swarna Kapoor, with a wooden walker that the victim used. Then, to allegedly make it look like a murder committed by a third party, she attempted to burn the body with mustard oil.According to family members, Kanchan, who has been married to Swarna’s son Sumit since 2009, was always at loggerheads with the victim over domestic issues but mostly because the accused allegedly ill-treated her children.‘Violent person’Sumit, the sole bread winner of the family who works at a restaurant, said his wife was a “violent” person and that she never liked his mother. “My wife was very violent with our children and used to hit them a lot because of which my mother often rebuked her. Last night, it turned very ugly because of her bad temper and now my children and I have to suffer because of her,” he said, adding that he planned to divorce her soon.As told to Mr. Sumit by his children, Kanchan was beating one of them on her second floor residence. Swarna then shouted at her from the ground floor flat. Enraged, she came down and hit her mother-in-law after which she collapsed. The woman then brought a bottle of mustard oil and set her ablaze but only managed to burn parts of her legs and a few items in the room.last_img read more

Is J.W. Walsh the (Second) Best Backup in the Country?

first_imgLet’s put Ohio State to the side for now. That’s a preposterous, once-in-a-lifetime situation. Is there any team outside of Columbus that wouldn’t trade their backup QB this year for J.W. Walsh?For that, let’s turn to our good friend over at ESPN, the handy QBR statistic. I’m still not sure what this statistic measures in totality, but I do know that the top three QBs in QBR last season were Marcus Mariota, J.T. Barrett and Nick Marshall. So it measures something good because all of those dudes can go.Back to Walsh. Let’s throw out last season (1.5 games) and look at the two before it. In 2012, his adjusted QBR was 81.9 (15th in the country among all qualified and unqualified QBs). In 2013, it was 74.5 (41st in the country) even though he got pulled in the sixth game of the year.Here’s how those seasons stacked up in terms of QBR among the country’s leaders last year and what role each of those quarterbacks will play this season. 81.9 (2012) Dylan Thompson, SCAR Hutson Mason, UGA Brandon Doughty, WKU J.W. Walsh 2012 80.3 J.T. Barrett, OSU Nick Marshall, AUB Starter Redshirting 76.2 Justin Thomas, GT Gone Kenny Hill, TAMU Gone Brett Hundley, UCLA Marcus Mariota, ORE Starter Gone Backup 83.7 Tyler Murphy, BC 78.9 81.7 79.9 Starter Player Bryce Petty, BAY 78.9 Gone Gone Starter Connor Cook, MSU Starter 74.5 Backup? Cody Kessler, USC Backup Gone Gone Trevor Knight, OKLA 75.5 Jake Waters, KSU 2014 QBR 83.7 J.W. Walsh 2013 Role Gone Blake Sims, ALA Starter 74.5 (2013) Jared Goff, CAL Gone 78 81.2 90.9 75.2 77.6 76.6 Gone Jameis Winston, FSU 85.2 86.7 So Trevor Knight and J.W. Walsh, eh?A quick scan of 2013 tells me Davis Webb had an 80.1 QBR in 2013 and also might not be the starter. So he’s in the conversation. And there are certainly some freshmen that will be backups who would be better than Walsh. There are also unique situations like, say, Kyle Allen at Texas A&M. Allen posted a 77.4 QBR last year (without enough plays to qualify for QBR) and might not start.But Walsh is right there among the most productive QBs in college football. He’s incredibly unique in that he’s had a lot of success in the college level and is still the clear backup.I’ve been on him pretty hard as a starter, and rightfully so. He wasn’t the director OSU needed behind center. But as a backup? I couldn’t be more thrilled.“We’re very lucky to have J.W. Walsh on our football team,” said Mike Gundy at Big 12 media days. “J.W. is going to play. He’ll be a factor in the success of our football team this season.”And it’s a perfect role for him. The hybrid player-coach who can rally the troops and provide a spark when needed. The other OSU might have the best QB situation in the country, but ours isn’t far behind.If you’re looking for the comments section, it has moved to our forum, The Chamber.
