KOCHI: The Ernakulam Chief Judicial Magistrate Court on Wednesday dismissed the bail applications submitted by nine accused in the controversial Paul M George murder case. CJM N Leelamani said that bail could not be granted considering the present status of the case. The court rejected the argument by the accused that they deserve bail since they were in custody for the last six months. �It is true that accused should be considered innocent till they are found guilty. But they are being kept in custody for proceeding of investigation in the right direction and also for the safety of society. The custody of the accused in this case can be justified, considering their criminal and anti-social background,� the court said. The CBI, which is investigating the case, submitted that more evidence had to be collected and releasing them on bail would affect the progress of investigation

KOCHI: A week after the BSNL launched its WiMax network - Indias first commercial urban mobile WiMax network - in Ernakulam, there are major security concerns over the possibility of infiltration into the network. IT experts pointed out that already there were a number of unsecured WiFi networks in many parts of the city. The BSNL officials are of the view that since only authentic users will be able to access the WiMax network, there is no room for security concerns. However, chances are there for WiMax networks to be hacked and misused by unauthorised users. Unlike the case of open WiFi networks which are available in many parts of the city currently, a WiMax network needs a specific authentication from the user.
