Here are City Spidey's top six picks from the National Capital Region (NCR):


Burglary in Amrapali Sapphire: A house in Amrapali Sapphire in Sector 45 was burgled on Friday. The house belongs to one, Rustam Yadav, who works in an MNC. Burglars said to have entered the 16 floor of the building after breaking open an iron gate and a wooden door and decamped with jewellery worth Rs 10 lakh. The house owners were away at work at the time of the incident. A case of theft has been registered at the Sector 39 police station.

Meet on school fee hike ended inconclusively: A meeting of District Magistrate NP Singh with principals of various schools of the city on Friday failed to resolve the issue of fee hike. While 10 per cent of the schools increased the fees by 10 per cent, a few have not effected any hike. Some principals defended the increase saying it was necessitated to increase salary and dearness allowance of teachers and other staff. The administration is looking into the legal aspects of the issue.

More than 200 of them held a protest on Friday. The complainant, a first-year student, was debarred from taking the examination for falling short of attendance. She accused the faculty member of making obscene proposal when she met him in his cabin for permission to appear in the examination.

Bike-auto ban on e-way sought: The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) sought a ban on two- and three-wheelers from plying on the Delhi-Gurgaon Expressway.
