Bengaluru pub assault: Karnataka Congress MLA's son Haris Nalapad surrenders
After the incident, Haris had claimed that his6 son was hiding somewhere without his knowledge. The Bengaluru cops have booked him under IPC Section 307 (attempt to murder) for the attack.

Nuance revealed that they are sorry to leave the direct-to-consumer keyboard business The main intention of the discontinuation is to enable the company to develop AI-based solutions for sale directly to businesses. The popular keyboard app was released on Android in 2013, Since then it was the main keyboard app for many people around the world. Well, the Swype Keyboard app made its way to Android back in April 2013, and after nearly five years, it has been discontinued. As or now, are you still using the Swype keyboard app on iOS? This is according to a post on Reddit in which Redditor dancedar emailed Nuance regarding support for the app, in which they received a replying stating that the app has been discontinued. While there is no stopping anyone from downloading the app on their devices, it is just that the apps won't be backed up with regular updates or security patches. Xda-developers did some checking and found that the same was true of the iOS keyboard. And, when it comes to keyboards on Android, some of the names that immediately come to our mind are Google Gboard, Swiftkey, and of course, Swype.

We are sad to announce that Swype+Dragon for Android has faced end of development. Alongside built-in search, the keyboard also supported Swype-style glide-typing. Let us know in the comments down below.
