Here is a big gaffe by India’s largest and one of the most respected newspapers in India – The Times of India.
Surprisingly, today’s Mumbai Edition of Times of India seems to have two different versions with different titles for the same story. It is also one of the lead story on the homepage regarding Minissha Lamba being detained at the Mumbai Airport.
- Version One reads – Minissha detained at city airport with 30 Lakh jewellery
- Version Two reads – Minissha detained at city airport with 50 Lakh jewellery

I am not sure how this happened, but there could be couple of possibilities – Probably the printing process was stopped in middle and figures may have changed (they might have got the number wrong first time). May be there are different places from where same TOI edition gets printed, so after getting the correct number, it may have been changed!
Whatever the reason – This is serious (go ask Minissha about it) and such a gaffe from someone like Time of India is absolutely unacceptable!
