Liga in 2015 to prevent a fourth straight European defeat by Real side who have not lost by more than one goal this campaign Real have also scored in each of their last 60 games in all competitions

accustomed to From the bizarre to the comic over the past few years officers scanning the back-end of the online complaints system have encountered every kind of complaint including many from across the country who write in apparently unaware that the Mumbai cyber cell has jurisdiction only to cyber offences within city limits When the website of the cyber cell was created a few years back it was with the intention to get online leads on cyber crimes and to make it convenient for victims to register a complaint “There are months when we hardly receive any actionable complaint” says an officer from the Cyber Crime Investigation Cell (CCIC) that falls under the Economic Offences Wing of the Mumbai Police Watch what else is making news “On an average day we receive 8-10 complaints on our website Majority of them are from other states complaining about crimes occurring there locally We ask them to contact the local police station” the officer said “Several police forces across the country do not have an independent website for reporting cyber crimes like we do That could be the reason why people across the country end up inadvertently forwarding the complaint to us” the officer added Other complaints either turn out to be issues of consumer redressal or ‘conspiracy theorists’ the officer said “In several cases when the quality of a product purchased is not good enough consumers approach us These matters should ideally go to the consumer forum There are cases of cheating where instead of a mobile phone an empty box is given In such cases we register an FIR and investigate” Apart from online complaints the officer said that as the headquarters of several banks are located in Mumbai banks generally approach them with complaints of customers across the country who may have been duped by fraudulent callers “In case any withdrawals have been made in Mumbai we take the complaint or else we ask them to approach the local police” a senior officer said In some cases an officer said merely complaining to the cyber police gets the problems of customers solved “In one case a woman sent us an e-mail about how the online grocery she ordered online turned out to be stale She had also marked a copy of the email to the portal Even before we could tell her we wouldn’t be able to help she mailed back saying the portal had agreed to return the money after she sent

legal problem that is going on right now We hope to settle this issue very soon and do something for the club I hope this success (of winning the I-League) will attract sponsors too" Mitra told IANS in an interview Mitra again emphasised on sponsorship when asked about the immediate goals for the club saying one cannot go ahead with empty hands "We have to solve this sponsorship problem quickly; the faster the merrier And we have to settle on the team for the next season too but you cannot go ahead with shortage of funds; so we have to resolve the issue as quickly as possible" Mohun Bagan

will just wait and watch what happens; there is nothing on our hands" Mitra also took a dig at the franchise-based clubs that are in vogue in the ISL saying they lack stability and don’t offer a guaranteed future "Professional clubs lack permanency You see what happened with Mahindra United (that closed down in 2010) Today they might be here but tomorrow they may not exist But clubs like Mohun Bagan and East Bengal are public-oriented and will come through no matter what" he said Mitra also insisted that his team was spending a lot on its grassroots development programme which would

goals in two games underlined Radamel Falcao strong return to form he has been recalled by Colombia’s national team Top News One of the best moves of the summer transfer window in France was Radamel Falcao’s decision to stay at Monaco rather than to take another loan spell somewhere Four goals in two games last week underlined his strong return to form he has been recalled by Colombia’s national team yet it was a goal Falcao had disallowed that offered a better glimpse he is somewhere back to his best Late in the first half against Nancy last Saturday his strike partner Valere Germain had a header saved The ball fell to Falcao who was to the right of six-yard box off balance and without a clear shooting chance In a flash he expertly dragged the ball back span around nimbly and still had the presence of mind to artfully glide the ball into the middle of the net It would have been his hat trick but was ruled out for offside Yet it showed that his instinct is returning and that he has confidence in his body again “He remains one of the best strikers He’s only 30 (years old)” Monaco coach Leonardo Jardim said “Our objective is to get him back to his (best) level” It has been a difficult return from injury and loss of form for Falcao once arguably the most lethal poacher in the world when with Atletico Madrid He had scored 72 goals in 87 games for Porto when Atletico snapped him up in the summer of 2011 and in two seasons for Atletico he netted 70 goals in 91 games winning the Europa League and the Spanish Cup Falcao joined Monaco in May 2013 a deal worth 60 million euros ($67 million) and netted 11 in 19 games But in January 2014 he tore his anterior cruciate ligament playing in a French Cup game He would normally have been rested against non-league Chasselay but insisted on playing The defender who injured him Soner Ertek received a stream of vitriolic threats on social media from irate fans and the club’s president said a hateful letter was even sent from Colombia Falcao missed the World Cup later that year and his career nosedived He joined Manchester United and then Chelsea both on loans But his pace had gone he looked unhappy and drastically low on confidence He managed just four league goals for United and one for Chelsea where nine of his 10 league appearances were as substitute Jardim criticized Falcao’s decision to move to the Premier League when clearly not ready for its hugely physical demands “He tried to keep playing at a high level Normally when a player is injured he doesn’t change club” Jardim said “It’s not easy to recover and to play at the same time Players are not machines” This season Falcao has scored eight goals in 10 games for Monaco and is captain He needs one more goal in upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Chile or Argentina to become Colombia’s all-time top scorer “I’ve worked hard to be able to return to the national team” said Falcao who has 25 international goals Jardim a Portuguese coach in his third season in charge has turned second-place Monaco into an attractive high-scoring team with 36 goals in 12 league games Though 13 different players have scored in the league it’s the partnership between Falcao and Germain that stands out The unheralded Germain was loaned to Nice last season after two inconsistent campaigns with Monaco Leading the line he scored a commendable 14 league goals for Nice and just like Falcao returned They have gelled Although Germain lacks pace and is not a great finisher he has outstanding movement awareness and touch making him the perfect foil for Falcao’s robust yet technically assured style In particular the clever timing of Germain’s wide runs gives Falcao the space to quickly take up central positions Against CSKA Moscow last Wednesday Germain peeled away from the right of the defense before slotting a reverse pass for Falcao’s second goal in a 3-0 win It summed up the understanding that makes the Colombia striker optimistic about the season ahead “The more
