Joyride ends up killing two-year-old

A two-year-old Versova boy died on Monday after he fell from the bike on which he was taken for a joyride by the household help. The mishap took place on the flyover opposite Celebration club near Lokhandwala in Andheri on Saturday, when the help, Gopal Khandare, took two-year-old Jayan Khatri for a ride after his parents left for some work at night. The toddler plummeted headlong onto the road and succumbed to his injuries two days later.According to the Oshiwara police, Khandare, 24, works for Versova-based Abdul Khatri, 36, who trades in garments.”The boy was asking to go on a bike ride. When they were riding down the flyover at speed, Jayan fell down,” said a police officer.He added that Khandare had been working for the Khatris for four years and is like a family member to them. The parents were therefore reluctant to file a first information report.Senior inspector Subhash Khanvilkar of Oshiwara police station said, “We have registered a case under sections 304A (causing death due to negligence) and 279 (rash driving) of the Indian Penal Code. The accused was granted bail. We have recorded statements of the parents and witnesses.”

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.

‘Two-leaves’ war- Opposition attacks Deepa Jayakumar for approaching EC

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –> Former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa?s niece Deepa Jayakumar approached the Election Commission on Thursday, staking claim in the party?s ?two-leaves? symbol on grounds of being its ?original curator?. Additionally, Deepa also moved the EC regarding conducting an election for the post of General Secretary of the All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK). In the wake of this, Deepa received flak from members of the opposition, who claimed that there was no weight to this, since she is not a member of the AIADMK. Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader S. Prakash, who coined her acts as that for gaining publicity, said the situation in Tamil Nadu is not politics, but ?drama?. ?Since most politicians in the state have a film background, they have decided to carry forward that into politics as well. Deepa Jayakumar is doing all this only for publicity. Situation in the state is high on drama. Her approach to EC does not carry any weight,? Prakash told ANI. Meanwhile, Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) spokesperson A. Sarvanan said the future of the political rift depends on how Deepa is accepted by the people of Tamil Nadu. Deepa came into limelight post the demise of her aunt, primarily for being denied access to visit the ailing ?Amma? at Apollo Hospital. After this, Deepa announced her entry into politics. Ahead of the RK Nagar bye-poll that was cancelled due to alleged vote-buying, Deepa created the MGR Amma Deepa Peravai ? a federation, and filed her nomination as an independent candidate for the bye-poll. Most recently, she alleged that her brother Deepak invited her to Poes Garden in order to kill her so that he can stake claim of Veda Nilayam, the residence of ‘Amma’. “He intentionally called me and very emotionally was trying to convince me. This was definitely a trap, this was a ploy to kill me,” Deepa said. Deepa said she was invited by her brother on the pretext of performing a puja inside the premise. “He invited me to perform some puja on the pretext of which he had actually called me over there and I had no idea, I was terribly shocked. I am sure that this was a coup attempt by Sasikala, Dinakaran and Deepak,” she said. Deepa further informed that she has all the documents of the property and has already taken a legal course on this. “I have all the documents, it used to belong to my grandmother. I have already have staked claim for the property, it is not only for the purpose of staking claim to the property, my aim is to stake claim of the legacy of my aunt including the party, and her esteemed valuable belongings whatever she cherished,” she said. She asserted that it was her “moral, ethical and legal right” to acquire Poes Garden, adding that she would seek the intervention of Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the same. Earlier during the day, Deepa was not allowed to enter her aunt’s house and was roughed up by private security guards. Earlier in April, the EC directed both factions of the AIADMK, namely those led by O. Paneerselvam and E. Palanisamy, to remove the ‘two leaves’ symbol from all its official websites and social media and submit the compliance report by April 8. “Both the aforesaid parties were issued show cause notices for the said act which violates the Model Code of Conduct, comes within the ambit of corrupt practice as defined under Sec. 123(4) of the Representation of the Peoples Act, 1951 and also violates Sec. 171(G) of the Indian Penal Code,” the letter stated. The poll panel asserted that it has found the AIADMK faction of Sasikala is still using the original election symbol of the AIADMK which amounted to publication of ‘false information’ and is an election offence under section 171 (G) of the Indian Penal Code ( IPC). Rival AIADMK factions were allotted new symbols and names after the poll panel barred them from using the undivided party’s election symbol for the R. K. Nagar Assembly by-polls on April 9, which were eventually cancelled.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)
