“Married Women can Store 500gm Gold, Unmarried Can Store 250gm”- Govt December 02, 2016 09:15

In another shock, the government has introduced another guideline for  undeclared wealth. The government announced the 26-year-old rule which says that only married women can store more gold. "Jewelry that is inherited or that bought with declared wealth will not be taxed", the Finance Ministry said in a statement. "Legitimate holding of jewelry up to any extent is fully protected," it clarified. "There is no limit on holding of gold jewelry or ornaments by anybody provided it is acquired from explained sources of income, including inheritance." "Even if the gold does not match one's known income, jewelry and ornaments to the extent of 500 gm for the married lady, 250 gm for an unmarried lady and 100 gm for the male member will not be seized," the government said, producing portions of the 1995 law. "The apprehension... that the jewelry which is acquired out of disclosed sources or exempted income shall become taxable under the proposed amendment is totally unfounded and baseless," the government's statement said. Officers can excuse those who have  larger quantities of gold if it is a  family tradition. ALSO READ: "KCR to Offer 11.7 kg Gold Crown to Warangal Goddess BY M. DIVYA SRI

Five people were arrested including two Nigerians and a BTech student in Hyderabad when police busted a cocaine racket on Wednesday. Police also seized 23 grams of cocaine from those arrested. The two Nigerians, Bernard Wilson, and his friend Godpower Nnembubu were selling cocaine to a  BTech student named  Idres Kaleem and two of his friends. They were caught red-handed near the Golf Course Road in Golconda and police took them into cutody. Police said "two months back Kaleem’s friends Khaleel Nadeem Mir and Rukunuddin Ahmed met Bernard at a party and came to know that he was selling cocaine." “They purchased cocaine from him twice for Rs 5,000 per gram. They consumed the drug and sometimes sold it to friends at higher prices. The duo told Idrees, who studies in Deccan Engineering College, about Bernard and they planned to buy more from him to sell it,” said DCP B. Limba Reddy. Police said "Bernard had come to India on a student visa in June 2016 and started a business. After losses, he moved to Bengaluru, where he stayed with a drug peddler named Charlie." “He learned the trade from Charlie, who then started supplying drugs to Bernard to sell them in Hyderabad. Later, Godpower, who used to live in Delhi came to Hyderabad and joined Bernard. They buy drugs from Charlie for Rs 3,000 a gram and sell it in Hyderabad for Rs 5,000,” the DCP said.    The duo use to build their contacts with the help of old customers. Once the new buyer calls the supplier and gives him the password he becomes part of the group. "Their customers  are mostly Indians and most of them might be addicts who contact him over the phone to get supplies. They deliver drugs at Banjara Hills, Golconda, Tolichowki and other areas in Hyderabad as per demand," said another senior official. ALSO READ: Mumbai-based boutique owner held with cocaine BY M.
