While actor Sanjay Dutt got reprieve in a case filed against him in 2013, legal trouble for controversial televangelist and Islamic Research Foundation head Zakir Naik only seems to be growing. From Shiv Sena attacking the BJP yet again, to how vada pav traces the history of Mumbai -- here’s our top picks of the day for you.

1. ED may seek Interpol arrest warrant against Zakir Naik, move to revoke his passport

Seeking to tighten the noose around controversial preacher Zakir Naik, the enforcement directorate (ED) may move to revoke his passport and ask Interpol to issue a red-corner notice (RCN) against him. Naik is currently in Saudi Arabia. If his passport is revoked, he will no longer be able to stay there, making it easier for the central agency to detain and question him.

2. Shiv Sena takes jibes at BJP’s PM Narendra Modi, compares him to Alexander the Great, Napoleon

The Shiv Sena on Monday took jibes at Prime Minister Narendra Modi in an editorial in its mouthpiece, Saamana, by indirectly comparing his tenure to the era of Alexander the Great and Napoleon Bonaparte.

4. Snack and the city: How the vada pav has kept up with Mumbai’s appetite

It’s a fairly odd recipe, as recipes go — carbs dipped in more carbs, wrapped in carbs. But that’s no accident. The vada pav is the answer to a riddle from the last century: What filling snack can you offer a mill worker with just a few annas and no time to sit and eat?
