4 Important Events of  27th January 2016
4 threat calls at Delhi, Bengaluru airports;3 flights grounded
New Delhi: Four bomb threat calls received in quick succession at Delhi and Bengaluru airports forced aviation authorities ground three flights, including two international, sending a panic wave among fliers on Wednesday 27th January 2016..

While Air India and Jet Airways flights to Kathmandu were grounded at Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGIA) here, no-frills airline AirAsia's Goa flight from Bengaluru also failed to take off on scheduled time due to similar reasons.

The Kathmandu-bound flights of Air India and Jet Airways, which were scheduled to take off at 1315 hours and 1325, were halted and sent to the isolation bay just before they were readying for departure after the airport police received a bomb threat call.

Prez rule in Arunachal Pradesh comes under SC scrutiny
New Delhi:  The imposition of President's rule in crisis-hit Arunachal Pradesh on Wednesday 27th January 2016,  came under the scanner of the Supreme Court which sought the report of Governor Jyoti Prasad Rajkhowa recommending central rule in the state, saying "it is too serious a matter".

The remark by a five-judge bench headed by Justice J S Khehar came when Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi raised a preliminary objection contending that the notification on promulgation of President's rule has not been challenged in the fresh plea.

 The bench asked the Attorney General not to raise "technical objections" when he persisted with his plea arguing that "rules are rules" and they apply equally to all. The bench issued notice to Central Govt and asked to give answer within 2 days. The case against imposition of President’s rule was filed by Congress Party.

Pak court refuses voice samples of suspects in 26/11 case 
Islamabad: In a fresh setback to the Mumbai attack trial on Wednesday 27th January 2016, a Pakistani court has dismissed the government's petition seeking voice samples of 26/11 mastermind Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi and six other suspects in the case.

The prosecution had filed an application in the Islamabad High Court seeking voice samples of the suspects to compare it with the communication intercepted by Indian intelligence and then present it before the anti-terrorism court (ATC) as evidence against the seven suspects in the Mumbai attack case.

The Islamabad High Court on Monday dismissed the petition. In 2011 and 2015, the issue of obtaining voice samples of Lakhvi had been dismissed by the trial court on the grounds that "no such law exists that allows obtaining of voice sample of an accused".

Sania-Martina enter final; Bopanna's campaign over at Aus Open
Melbourne:  Indian tennis ace Sania Mirza and her Swiss partner Martina Hingis stormed into the final of the women's doubles event of the Australian Open after notching up a comfortable straight-set win here on Wednesday 27th January 2016.
However, Rohan Bopanna's campaign ended with a shock defeat in the mixed doubles quarterfinals with partner Yung-Jan Chan of Chinese Taipei.

Sania and Martina, who are on a record winning streak, continued to rule the roost as they brushed aside Julia Goerges and Karolina Pliskova, the 13th seeds, 6-1 6-0 in just 54 minutes at Rod Laver Arena to enter their third successive doubles Grand Slam final.
