Indian shares King Faisal international award

The award consists of 24 carat, 200-gram gold medal and a cash award of
$200,000

DUBAI: An Indian mathematician has been named the co-winner of the King
Faisal International Prize for 2006, in recognition of his path-breaking
research, which has strengthened links between mathematics and physics.

M. S. Narasimhan, an honorary fellow at the Tata Institute of Fundamental
Research in Mumbai, shares the prize with United Kingdom's Simon Kirwan
Donaldson, president of the Institute of Mathematical Sciences and Professor
of Mathematics at Imperial College, London, for their seminal contributions
to mathematics, which also helped provide a foundation for physical
theories.

Prince Khaled Al-Faisal, Director-General of the King Faisal Foundation,
said the prizes would be distributed to the winners on February 18.

The two mathematicians' work has helped to establish strong ties with the
formulation of quantum chromo dynamics for which the King Faisal Prize in
physics was given last year, the Foundation said. Each of the five prize
categories consists of a certificate, hand-written in Arabic calligraphy,
summarising the laureate's work; a commemorative 24 carat, 200-gram gold
medal, uniquely cast for each prize; and cash award of $200,000. - PTI..

`Exhumed bodies' case: CBI probe ordered

Ahmedabad : The Gujarat High Court on Thursday directed the Central Bureau
of Investigation (CBI) to investigate the case of "exhumed bodies,"
suspected to be those of post-Godhra riot victims, near Lunawada in
Panchmahals district.

Justice C. K. Buch issued the direction in response to a writ petition
jointly filed by social activist Teesta Setalvad and riot-affected victim
Ameena Habib Hasool, demanding that the case be transferred to the CBI. The
CBI has also been ordered to file its report before January 30.
