Max case: Dad seeks fresh inquiry on docs

The father of the twin babies, one of whom was wrongly declared dead by Max Hospital in Delhi’s Shalimar Bagh, has sought a court-monitored probe. He has alleged that the ongoing “tainted” probe may harm the prosecution case.In a plea at magistrate’s court here, Ashish Kumar has urged the station house officer concerned be directed to share details of the progress made in the investigation.Doctors at the hospital had allegedly declared the baby dead along with his still-born twin and handed over the bodies to the parents in plastic bags. The father was on his way to a cremation ground when he noticed moments in one of the bags.The family alleged that the babies were declared dead after it expressed its inability to pay exorbitant fees for their treatment.Union Health Minister JP Nadda had directed the Delhi government to look into the matter, after which a probe was ordered and a report sought. A case has been registered under Section 308 (attempt to commit culpable homicide) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). The Delhi Medical Council (DMC) also took cognizance of the case.The plea in the court has sought directions to the police to explain why the statements of the family members of the complainant (the father) have not been recorded by the police.The hospital’s licence was cancelled by the Delhi government on December 8, following an uproar over the incident. But the hospital resumed its operations 10 days later after it got relief from an appellate authority which stayed the Delhi government’s order.

Five days in police custody for farsan factory owner

On Tuesday, Saki Naka police produced 38-year-old Ramesh Bhanushali at Andheri Metropolitan court, which remanded him into police custody for five days for investigation. During their primary probe, police found that Bhanushali had allegedly employed a minor boy in the factory. The boy was one of the 12 victims of the major fire which engulfed the farsan factory on Monday morning.According to police, Bhanushali owned the factory unit situated at Kairani Road in Saki Naka, and had allegedly illegally purchased commercial cylinders. Additionally, cylinders meant for household use were also being used for commercial purposes, which led to the leakage of gas which transformed a minor fire into a major one. The police also found that the factory unit had been converted, illegally, into a resting zone for workers. “The accused did not acquire the requisite licenses for running the factory,” said a senior officer from Saki Naka police station. “The court granted us custody on the grounds that we have to collect documents pertaining to the factory to identify two other victims. We also have to take statements of the two eyewitnesses.”Bhanushali has been arrested under sections 304 (culpable homicide not amounting to murder), 285 (Negligent conduct with respect to fire or combustible matter) and 337 (Causing hurt, endangering life or personal safety of others) of the Indian Penal Code and under relevant sections of the BMC Act.ND Reddy, deputy commissioner of police, Zone 10, said, “We are probing to see whether any other person too is involved in the incident and arrests will be made if the role of any other person crops up during investigations.”

SC to examine 157-yr-old law on adultery punishing only men

The Supreme Court today agreed to examine the constitutional validity of a colonial era law on adultery which punishes only the man even though the woman, with whom he has had consensual sex, may be an equal partner.The top court also said if the husband gives consent for sexual intercourse between his wife and another man, then it nullifies the offence of adultery and turns the woman into a commodity, which goes against the principle of gender justice and the constitutional mandate of right to equality.Section 497 of the Indian Penal Code states that “whoever has sexual intercourse with a person who is and whom he knows or has reason to believe to be the wife of another man, without the consent or connivance of that man, such sexual intercourse not amounting to the offence of rape, is guilty of the offence of adultery”.Also readApp to adultery finds 1.9L takersThe offence of adultery entails punishment of up to five years or with fine or with both. However, in such cases, the wife shall not be punishable as an abettor.A bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justices A M Khanwilkar and D Y Chandrachud termed the provision a “prima facie archaic” and said this “tantamounts to subordination of a woman where the Constitution confers equal status”.Also readReader Edit: Adultery in the Armed Forces”A time has come when the society must realise that a woman is equal to a man in every field. This provision, prima facie, appears to be quite archaic. When the society progresses and the rights are conferred, the new generation of thoughts spring, and that is why, we are inclined to issue notice,” the bench said.It said it would examine the constitutional validity of the 157-year-old provision and issued notice to the Centre, seeking its response in four weeks.The court said it needs to examine why a married woman, who may have been an equal partner to the offence of adultery with a married man who is not her husband, should not be punished along with the man.Secondly, the bench said it will examine if the husband of a woman gives his consent or connives for sexual intercourse with another married man, then does it not turn her into a commodity.”Prima facie, on a perusal of Section 497 of the Indian Penal Code, we find that it grants relief to the wife by treating her as a victim. It is also worthy to note that when an offence is committed by both of them, one is liable for criminal offence but the other is absolved,” it said.The top court said the provision seems to be based on a “societal presumption” and ordinarily, the criminal law proceeds on gender neutrality but in this case, “as we perceive, the said concept is absent”.”That apart, it is to be seen when there is conferment of any affirmative right on women, can it go to the extent of treating them as the victim, in all circumstances, to the peril of the husband,” the bench said.It said when the provision is perceived from the language employed in the section, then the “fulcrum of the offence is destroyed once the consent or the connivance of the husband is established”.”Viewed from the said scenario, the provision really creates a dent on the individual, independent identity of a woman when the emphasis is laid on the connivance or the consent of the husband”, it said.During the hearing, Justice Chandrachud observed that at present, the law assumes a “patronising attitude” towards the woman and treats her as a victim which amounts to violation of a fundamental right and gender discrimination.Advocates Kaleeswaram Raj and Suvidutt M S, appearing for petitioner Joseph Shine, an Indian citizen but residing in Italy, said section 497 was “prima facie unconstitutional on the ground that it discriminates against men and violates Article 14, 15 and 21 of the Constitution of”.He said “when the sexual intercourse takes place with the consent of both the parties, there is no good reason for excluding one party from the liability”.The lawyer said the provision also indirectly discriminates against women by holding an erroneous presumption that they are the property of men.”This is further evidenced by the fact that if adultery is engaged with the consent of the husband of the woman, then such act seizes to be an offence punishable under the code,” he told the bench.He said the said provisions have been treated to be constitutionally valid in three verdicts of the apex court in 1954, 1985 and in 1988.Raj said that petitioner has also challenged the Section 198(2) of CrPC, which deals with prosecution for offences against marriages.

Max under scanner as second twin dies, government assures action

One of the prematurely born twins, who was mistakenly declared dead by a private hospital in Delhi, died on Wednesday after battling for life for five days. The 22-week baby, who was born at the Max hospital in Shalimar Bagh, was undergoing treatment at the Delhi New Born Centre in Pitampura.”The infant died due to multiple organ failure. His condition was critical from the very first day. He was immediately put on ventilator and had been responding to medicines. He passed away in Wednesday afternoon. We had informed the family about his condition after looking at all the medical reports. The survival chances were quite less,” Dr Sandeep Gupta, director, Delhi New Born Centre, said.Meanwhile, Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain said that strict action will be taken against the hospital, once the report has been finalised. “The final report will come out in two days. No one will be spared, if found guilty,” Jain said on Wednesday.The matter was reported last Friday, after Ashish Kumar, father of the twins, who was on his way to the cremation ground, noticed that one of the polybags handed over by the doctors was moving.The agitated family members then protested outside the hospital throughout the day.”We will not cremate our baby till this hospital is shut. We will not let this matter die,” Kumar had said.A preliminary report submitted by a panel of doctors to the Delhi government on Tuesday found the hospital guilty of not having followed the prescribed medical norms in dealing with the infants. The three-member panel has submitted the preliminary report after scrutinising hospital records and meeting the staffers concerned.”No ECG tracings were done to check whether the child was alive. The body was handed over without written instructions. The dead and the alive children were not kept separately,” the report stated.A medical negligence case was registered under Section 308 of Indian Penal Code (IPC) against the hospital. Also, services of two doctors concerned were terminated on Sunday.Reacting to the baby’s death, Max hospital said in a statement:”We just learnt of the sad demise of the 23-week preterm baby, who was on ventilator support. Our deepest condolences are with the parents and other family members. While we understand that survival in extreme preterm births is rare, it is always painful for parents and family. We wish them the strength to cope with their loss.”The rising number of cases of medical negligence by private hospitals has prompted the Delhi government to prepare a legal framework to track the ‘loot’ and ‘criminal negligence’ by hospitals.”We never wanted to interfere in the functioning of private hospitals, but the public should not suffer in any case. The general public is being looted and cheated by these hospitals, which are guilty of criminal negligence. As a responsible government, it is our duty to come up with a solution,”chief minister Arvind Kejriwal had said.While talking about the framework, he pointed out two recent incidents — a private hospital charging Rs 15 lakh from a dengue patient and Max hospital wrongly declaring the infant dead.Union Health Minister JP Nadda also directed the Delhi government to look into the matter, after which the government ordered a probe and sought a preliminary report within three days.The case has been transferred to the Crime Branch.

LGBT rights: SC likely to hear Section 377 curative petition today

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Days after a nine-judge bench of the Supreme Court ruled that the Right to Privacy is a fundamental right guaranteed by the Constitution of India, the apex court today will hear curative pleas over the constitutionality of Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code which criminalises gay sex.The curative petition has been filed by Naz Foundation and several gay rights activists challenging an SC judgment from 2013 upholding the validity of Section 377.The SC had, in 2013, set aside a 2009 judgment of the Delhi High Court decriminalising homosexuality, saying it should have been left up to the Parliament to amend or repeal the law.The fight against Section 377 got a major boost when a nine-judge Bench of the Supreme Court, while upholding the right to privacy as a fundamental right intrinsic to life and liberty observed that the chilling effect of Section 377 “poses a grave danger to the unhindered fulfilment of one’s sexual orientation, as an element of privacy and dignity.”The nine-member SC bench also observed: “Sexual orientation is an essential attribute of privacy. Discrimination against an individual on the basis of sexual orientation is deeply offensive to the dignity and self-worth of the individual”. (With inputs from agencies)

SC dismayed over prevalance of child marriage despite law against it

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The Supreme Court expressed dismay over the prevalence of the practice of child marriage despite the existence of the Child Marriage Prohibition Act and termed as unfortunate that this was being done mostly at the behest of girl child’s parents.The court was hearing a plea questioning the validity of a provision permitting a man to have physical relationship with his wife, even if she was aged between 15 and 18 years.During the hearing, the top court said striking down of such provision in section 375 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) would amount to creating an offence.Section 375 of the IPC, which defines the offence of rape, has an exception clause that says intercourse or sexual act by a man with his wife, not below 15 years, is not rape.”It is a hard reality and is unfortunate that most of the child marriages happening in the country are done by parents of the girl child. However, to this, there are odd exceptions when a minor boy and girl fall in love and marry on their own,” a bench of Justices M B Lokur and Deepak Gupta said.It also sought to know whether it can create an offence by striking down the exception 2 of section 375 of IPC which the Parliament has refused to do.Advocate Gaurav Agarwal, appearing for NGO Independent Thought, said by amendment to CrPC in 2013, the age of consent for sexual intercourse by a girl, which was earlier 16 years has now been increased to 18 years.He said that exception 2 to section 375 of the IPC still retains the age of consent as 15 years, due to which there is a huge gap of three years in the age of consent for a married girl child and an unmarried girl.Agarwal, assisted by advocate Vikram Shrivatava, said that exception 2 to section 375 of the IPC was discriminatory and violate Article 14 of the Constitution.Taking note of the arguments, the bench said, “We have to accept this hard reality. These kind of marriages are still happening in the country and if we are going to strike down this exception, then what would happen to the child born from such marriages. We have to keep all aspects in mind.” Agarwal said the court can strike down the exception like it did recently in the practice of triple talaq among Muslims for being arbitrary and discriminatory.He contended that this classification has no rationale nexus with the object sought to be achieved as the reasoning behind increasing the age of consent to 18 years in 2013, was that a girl below that age is incapable of realising the consequences of her consent.”If this is the object for increasing the age of consent to 18 years of age, then marriage of girl between the age of 15-17 years does not make the girl mature enough (mentally or physically) for the purpose of consent. Thus, it is discriminatory,” Agarwal said.He cited the fourth National Family Health Survey of 2015-16, and said there were 26.8 per cent of brides in the country who were married below the age of 18 years of age.In the third Survey of 2005-06, the figure was even larger and 46 per cent of women (23 million brides) were married before the age of 18 in the country, he added.The Centre, in its affidavits, had admitted that child marriage were still happening in the country due to uneven economic and educational development.”It has been therefore decided to retain the age of 15 years under exception 2 of section 375 of IPC, so as to give protection to husband and wife against criminalising the sexual activity between them,” it had said.It had said that lawmakers had taken a pragmatic view regarding the issue of ‘marital rape’ as marriage being a social institution was the bedrock of any society and hence, needs to be protected.”Exception 2 of section 375 of IPC envisages that if the marriage is solemnized at the age of 15 years due to traditions, it should not be a reason to book the husband in the case of offence under the IPC,” it had said.The Centre also gave details of number of prosecutions that have been instituted over the last three years.The apex court had on August 9 said the raging issue whether to make forced marital intercourse and sexual acts, part of offence of rape in penal law, has been extensively debated and it cannot be considered as a criminal act.Earlier, the apex court had in 2015, made National Commission for Women (NCW) party to explain how the offence of rape in the Indian Penal Code (IPC) afforded an exception to a man to have physical relationship with his minor wife and still not qualify it as crime.The NGO in its petition sought direction to declare exception 2 to Section 375 of the IPC as “violative of Articles 14, 15 and 21 of the Constitution to the extent that it permits intrusive sexual intercourse with a girl child aged between 15 and 18 years, only on the ground that she has been married.”It has also referred to the provisions of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act (POCSO), 2012, and said these provisions were contrary to the IPC provision.The POCSO provision provides that physical relationship with a minor constitutes the offence of rape and it does not exclude such relationship between a man and his minor wife.

Madras HC dismisses anticipatory bail plea of actor’s fan

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The Madras High Court today dismissed as withdrawn an anticipatory bail application filed by a fan of actor Vijay who apprehended arrest in connection with alleged online abuse of a woman journalist. When the matter came up for hearing, Ram Kumar, who filed the petition, said he was withdrawing it following which Justice P N Prakash dismissed the plea as withdrawn. Dhanya Rajndran, editor-in-chief of an online news portal, had earlier this month filed a police complaint after abusive comments were made on social media against her by several persons over her critical comments about a film of Vijay. Though she deleted the comments, these did not stop, following which she lodged a police complaint. Rajendran had to face a volley of abuse from various Twitter users who were allegedly fans of actor Vijay, who has a number of hits under his belt. City Police had filed the case against some Twitter handles, and invoked various sections of Indian Penal Code, Information Technology Act 2000 and TN Prohibition of Harassment of Women Act, 2002. Sections such as ‘stalking’ and ‘criminal intimidation’ were invoked against two Twitter handles. Vijay, currently shooting for his film “Mersal”, had said everybody had a right to criticise films. “I respect women in society. Anybody has the freedom of expression to criticise anybody’s film. My opinion is that maligning or making slanderous comments against women should not be made,” he had said. Womanhood should be praised, he said, and urged that no comments “hurting anybody” and women in particular, should be published online.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)
