<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –> In a U-turn, Sheena Bora murder case prime accused Indrani Mukerjea today told a special CBI court here that she wasn’t levelling any allegations against her husband and co-accused Peter Mukerjea, days after she said he may have played a role in her daughter’s disappearance.”We are not making any accusations against Peter. Some words are inadvertently written as there is emotional stress,” her lawyer Sudeep Pasbola told CBI judge J C Jagdale.A few days ago, Indrani Mukerjea had demanded call data records of her husband, alleging that he may have played a role in the disappearance of Sheena, her daughter from an earlier relationship, and now framed her.”The contents of the application are speaking other language…,” the judge said.Pasbola said he wanted to dispel any notion that the application had been filed with mala fide intentions, malice or ulterior motives. Accused persons make such applications from time to time, the lawyer added.”All fingers are pointed at Indrani and it was said she acted with other accused persons, to show the connection (between the accused)…the CDR is called,” he said.The defence lawyer sought to refute the CBI’s contention that Indrani Mukerjea made the application to divert the concentration of (accused-turned-approver) Shyamvar Rai.”Rai’s concentration should not get diverted unless Rai has not come out with complete truth,” he said.The judge, at this point, said, “You are saying no accusations, but we are conducting a criminal trial and we have to decide the criminal liability.”Pasbola said he himself doesn’t support the accusations. The court should take into consideration the essence of the application and exclude allegations, he said.”Indrani wants justice for her daughter, she may be under emotional stress,” he said.CBI lawyers Bharat Badami and Kavita Patil said the court may not pass any order on Indrani Mukerjea’s allegations at this stage, but the request for CDR may be decided on merit.The judge asked the defence lawyer if an accused can seek to bring any evidence, which may be against a co-accused, on record. Pasbola said there is no bar to such a plea as long as the evidence is meant for getting justice.The court is likely to pass an order on Indrani Mukerjea’s application of December 5.On November 15, Indrani Mukerjea filed a plea, in person, saying her husband and former media baron Peter Mukerjea might have caused her daughter’s disappearance out of “greed and ill-will”.Indrani also alleged that Peter and others might have manipulated the circumstances to frame her for the crime.She sought the CDR of Peter Mukerjea for the period between January 2012 and December 2012, and from January 2015 to December 2015.The alleged murder of Sheena Bora came to light in August 2015 after Shyamvar Rai, Mukerjeas’ former driver, spilled the beans when arrested in another case.
<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The HRD Ministry is roping in various NGOs and civil society groups to chalk out a strategy for dealing with cases of child sexual abuse at school level, as the increasing number of such cases has set alarm bells ringing in the country.The move comes following the alleged sexual assault of a four-year-old girl in a prominent Delhi school by a classmate.”There are several rules and guidelines in place but still several cases are reported where children are sexually abused. This issue needs to be tackled beyond the usual good touch-bad touch lessons,” a senior HRD Ministry official said.”Discussions have been initiated with several NGOs and civil society groups and we hope to have some suggestions soon to see how the problem can be addressed at the school level,” the official added.The role of school authorities has come under scanner where last week a girl’s mother had approached the police and alleged that her daughter was “inappropriately touched” by a classmate.

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>A missionary school in Bara Banki district of Uttar Pradesh has threatened to rusticate a class VII Muslim student for wearing ‘Hijab’ in the classroom.Studying in Anand Bhawan, a private school run by a missionary trust, the Muslim student had attended the school wearing ‘hijab’ ( a scarf worn by Muslim girls after attaining puberty) on Wednesday. The girl was not only admonished by the school management but warned to be rusticated from the school if she wore the scarf again.When the girl’s father Maulana Mohammed Raza Rizvi wrote a letter to the school management protesting their dictating religious reasons, he was advised to withdraw her daughter and make her study in a madarsa or any other Islamic School.“In Islam, it is mandatory for a girl to wear hijab to cover their head after attaining puberty. It was due to religious reasons my daughter wore the scarf. It is a minority institution and most of the teachers are Christians but even then they objected to my daughter wearing hijab,” said Rizvi.But the school management refused to entertain any plea from the parents and told the father that any girl wearing hijab will not be allowed to attend classes. “It should not be repeated again. If parents have any objections they may withdraw and admit their daughter in any Islamic school,” warned the School Principal Archana Thomas.The Principal clarified that the school has a strict dress code and the management cannot allow any student to wear anything other than the school dress. “I did not mean to disrespect anyone’s religion or force any student to seek admission in an Islamic school. We had only told the parents that if they have any objections to dress code of the school then they are free to withdraw their girl and get her admitted elsewhere,” clarified the Principal.Archana Thomas claimed that the dress code and all rules of the school are clearly written in Admission Form. “We admit student only after parents agree and sign to school rules and regulations written on the admission form,” said she.“If the girl’s parents are so adamant to violate the school dress code by sending their daughter wearing a scarf then they are free to withdraw her from the school,” warned the Principal.Agitated parents have lodged a complaint with the Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, District Magistrate and district inspector of schools (DIOS) against the missionary school diktat. “The School order is against the Constitution which protects us to practice our religious rights. I will go to the court if the order is not withdrawn,” said Rizvi whose daughter has stopped going to the school after the row over hijab wearing.A similar hijab wearing row was reported in Lucknow about two years ago when management of St. Joseph School had objected to a Muslim girl wearing hijab in the classroom. The district administration had to intervene and the Muslim girl was finally allowed to wear hijab in the classroom.
<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>On Thursday, Delhi woke up to a news that shattered all beliefs of safety and security.At a time, when the national capital is debating about how safe are Delhi schools, a sexual assault case has sparked more outrage.The fact that the assaulter is none other than the classmate of the four-year-old victim is beyond any stretch of imagination.As the details of the assault start surfacing, the mother of the victim has given a chilling testimony of the crime.Recalling the horror story, the mother told NDTV that how her daughter came home and complained about ‘tummy pain’.The mother thought that the child is throwing ‘tantrums’ until she saw her daughter’s private part red and swollen.It was then the child broke down and told her about how a classmate would touch her private parts. ‘He sharpened his pencil and put it in too,’ the child told her mother.Writhing in pain, the child then confided in her father. It was only beginning of the traumatic journey of the child and her parents.The mother alleges that the school didn’t take her complaint seriously. She said that despite the child narrating the incident word by word in front of the Metropolitan Judge, nothing has been done so far.The parents also said that the school can’t shrug from its responsibility to keep their child safe.This starling case shows the poor safety protocols followed in schools. The mother says that the teacher left the class in hands of an ‘aaya’ who didn’t notice that her child came out last from the class or that she was disturbed.

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>I’m a father of an extremely premature born baby girl. It’s been 45 days 4 hours since my first and only child came into my life and I still haven’t been allowed to hold, touch or even stand near her. My only view of her has been through the glass walls of the NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) that contains her tiny body. With needles and breathing pipes travelling in and out of her delicate structure, I still haven’t figured if my baby has taken after her mother or me.My name is Nazir Ahmed Shaikh. I got married to my beautiful wife Seema in October 2013. We’ve been on our own since we got married because we had both tragically lost our parents before we got married. A few months later, we wanted to start a family of our own. It was such a big moment for me. I remember feeling relieved knowing she wants the same things as me. We’d been unsuccessfully trying to conceive for a long time so we decided to see the doctor to find out if everything was fine. After undergoing a few tests, we found out that my wife Seema has a fibroid in her stomach which was affecting her ability to get pregnant thus reducing the chances of fertility by as much as 70%. Our hearts sank. The weeks that followed were emotional for both of us. With time, however, we learned to make peace with it. 4 years after our marriage, Seema was pregnant, we were miraculously blessed with a child. I was finally going to become a father! That feeling was just surreal.I started reading on parenting and training myself for her due date. One lazy afternoon, on June 22, during Ramadan, my wife complained of discomfort followed with acute pain. I tried to stay calm but all my attempts were futile because I felt extremely unprepared and overwhelmed. She was in her last trimester but still over 2 months away from her due date. Looking at her misery, I rushed to Habib Hospital in Kurla. And then a whole lot of complications surfaced.The doctors started by explaining that I would have to take them to another hospital because their facilities were inadequate at that point. Later, they tried to explain the situation to me in simple words. They said that the fluid around my baby was beginning to leak and if I don’t get my wife operated in the next hour, I could end up losing both my child and my wife.I was dumbfounded. I couldn’t believe this was happening to my family. I froze, I just didn’t understand what to do. All this while, my wife was by my side, now she was in labour and I was at the risk of losing the two most important people in my life – my wife and my unborn child who we had been waiting for since the last 7 months.With the help of a few close friends, I managed to get my wife in time to the Holy Spirit Hospital. While my wife was in the operation theatre, several thoughts were running through my mind, most of them were scary. I was thinking of all the good things I’ve done in my life, hoping God considers those and doesn’t take away my happiness. I was blessed with yet another miracle that I thank God for everyday. The doctor came out of the operation theatre and informed me that my wife was out of danger, holding the tiniest baby I’ve ever seen. And just seconds later, before I could get a glimpse of her, they took her straight to the NICU. And here I am, still longing to just see her properly.My daughter has sepsisIt’s a serious and life-threatening condition where a child’s organs and tissues are damaged as the body attempts to fight an infection. On account of the premature delivery, my baby’s immune system is underdeveloped. I’ve seen horrifying things happening to her. She’s been having trouble breathing on her own because of which sometimes sufficient oxygen doesn’t reach her brain. The doctor has assisted her respiration with breathing pipes for now. At times, when her heart rate increases, my blood runs cold. Her body even needs timely blood transfusions.Seeing her fragile body go through so much has been extremely painful for both me and Seema. From the warm, comforting womb of her mother, she’s come straight to this hell of pain and discomfort and there’s absolutely nothing I can do.Taking her out of the NICU would kill her – that’s my reality. And to add to all of this, the amount on my hospital bills has been giving me sleepless nights. If I fail to pay soon, I’ll be forced to take my daughter home when her life depends on the NICU. Please help me keep my daughter alive by making a donation – it would mean everything to me. My monthly salary is Rs. 8,000 per month and Seema is a housewife. The treatment cost is coming up to Rs. 2,55,000 along with the hospitalisation, test and medicine cost which has crossed over Rs. 1,50,000 already. And I may need a lot more. It’s not in my capabilities to manage an amount that high. With support from the only well-wishers I have, I’ve managed to buy more time for my baby by paying the bills in parts. When I called my relatives to inform them about my wife’s pregnancy, they congratulated me and said they’d be there if I need them but now when I ask for loans or monetary help, the same people avoid my calls.If my parents or in-laws were alive today, I wouldn’t have felt so powerless and lonely.Taking care of Seema, paying bills, running around to manage money all by myself has been extremely exhausting. I’m physically, emotionally and financially drained.At this point of my life, when I have very few people that I can call my own, I hope you’ll help me save my daughter’s life by donating to my fundraiser on Ketto.org and help me live this one last miracle.(Disclaimer: This is a sponsored article and has not been independently verified or edited by DNA)

During investigations, police received a nikahnama which mentioned that the girl had been married to one Iddu Khan. Khan worked in the same neighbourhood where the girl lived and had also been missing. The nikahnama showed the girl’s age to be 26. This raised the police’s suspicion and several raids were conducted at Etah in Uttar Pradesh where Khan was said to be staying.The police then arrested a man who was one of the witnesses to the wedding. On July 7, the man whom the girl had been married to, surrendered in the Saket Court along with her. She was medically examined and found to be three weeks pregnant, police said.

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>A widow has a right to enjoy the property purchased by her husband in her name in the manner she wants and her daughter and son-in-law cannot lay claim over it, a Delhi Court has held. The observation was made while deciding the case in favour of a 65-year-old woman who had moved the court against her daughter and son-in-law’s refusal to vacate a portion of the house and challenging the right of the elderly over the property in north west Delhi’s Shastri Nagar. Lajwanti Devi wanted the portion of the property given to her daughter and son-in-law in 1985 for their personal use but they refused to vacate. The court, which perused the facts of the case, expressed anguish that the widow who had allowed the couple to use the premises due to the close relationship, was compelled to rush to the court after they declined to vacate it. Additional District Judge Kamini Lau, while holding the woman as the owner of the house, noted that the property was purchased by the woman’s husband in 1966 in his wife’s name to “provide her a secure life” after his death and her daughter and son-in-law were only having “permissive possession” of the house and they could not be allowed to defeat her right. “Lajwanti Devi, a Hindu widow, has a right to enjoy the property purchased by her husband in her name, in the manner she wants…,” the court said, directing the couple to vacate the house within six months and pay damages to her. It asked them to pay Rs 10,000 per month to the aged woman from the time of institution of the suit in 2014 and Rs 10,000 per month from the date of the judgement till the handing over of the possession of the property to her along with interest. The couple claimed in the court that the woman has no right over the property as it was solely purchased by her husband and as she was not the owner of the house, she had no right to file the suit.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)
