Alert teacher rescues Class VI student from playing the Blue Whale Challenge

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>In another case of the Blue Whale challenge, a Class VI student of a private school was rescued from the clutches of the dreaded game on Tuesday after his teacher noticed a ‘fish-like’ figure on his arm.At around 9 am, the teacher overheard the 12-year-old discussing the game with his classmates. He was showing them the image of a whale drawn on his arm. “The teacher brought him to my office. When we asked the child about the image, he said that he drew it as he was playing the Blue Whale game. We immediately informed the police and his family about it,” said Anuradha Govind, Principal, JM International, Dwarka.”We received a call from the school when teachers heard some students discussing the Blue Whale game. One of them also had images on his hand made with a sketch pen, which was initially mistaken to be inflicted injuries. The child is being counselled,” said DCP (Southwest) Shibesh Singh.School authorities learned from the boy’s parents that he had been inquiring about the game in the last few days. They, however, ignored his queries.The browser history on the boy’s smartphone’s history confirmed that he had been searching for information on the game since the last few days.The student underwent a counselling session in the presence of his parents. According to school authorities, during the session, the teenager revealed that he learned about the game through media reports. “We think he was just curious to know about the game and that’s why he started playing it,” the principal said.Experts, however, have a word of caution. “Many a time, people who are drawn to play such games are going through psychological issues and behavioral challenges. Parents need to monitor their children closely in this internet age as children are more vulnerable to fall in these traps,” said Dr Jateen Ukrai, SR Psychiatry at Deep Chand Bandhu Hospital.

Ghana national held for withdrawing money by cloning ATM cards

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>A 37-year-old Ghana national was arrested for allegedly cloning debit cards and fraudulently withdrawing money from ATMs, the police said today. The accused, Kingsley Boafo, was arrested on August 12 near HDFC Bank ATM, located on Main Najafgarh Road in Uttam Nagar. He has been staying in the country even after his visa had expired, said Deputy Commissioner of Police (Southwest) Surender Kumar. He had come to Mumbai from Ghana in July 2015 in connection with his garment business. In October that year, he shifted to Delhi and continued the business of exporting ready-made clothes to his country, the police said. With a desire to earn more in a short period of time, he used to browse the Internet and found ways to clone ATM cards. He bought devices online to clone ATM cards, the police said. Boafo surveyed the ATMs that did not have security guards and through a skimmer placed in the card reader slot of the machines he would copy details of cards inserted in the slot, the police said, adding the data was downloaded to a laptop and then transferred to a Magnetic Strip Reader/Writer (MSR). Blank debit cards were swiped through the MSR and these cloned cards were used to withdraw money from the ATMs fraudulently, they said. Boafo was helped by one Issac, an African, in preparing cloned ATM cards. The duo deleted the stolen data from their devices soon after withdrawing money as the ATM cards, whose data they fraudulently obtained, were blocked by card holders, the police said. The accused was in Mumbai for a couple of months this year and had returned to Delhi in the last week of July. It is suspected that he committed similar offences in Mumbai also, they said, adding police are on the lookout for Issac.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)

Latest forecast from monsoon mission system indicates neutral ENSO conditions are most likely till 2018 spring season with high probability (80-90%) till end of 2017,” IMD said.Despite the forecast for a normal rainfall, large parts of India are reeling under large deficit, portending drought like conditions in next summer.

22-yr-old youth gets 7-yr jail for raping, threatening woman

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>A Delhi court has sent a 22-year- old youth to seven years in jail for raping and threatening a woman. Additional Sessions Judge Praveen Kumar handed down the jail term to Southwest Delhi resident Rajender while holding him guilty of offences under sections 376 (rape) and 506 (criminal intimidation) of the IPC and also imposed a fine of Rs 40,000 on him. The special fast track court, which decided the case in one year, has also directed the Delhi District Legal Aid Services to award appropriate compensation to the woman under the Victim Compensation Scheme floated by the government. The judge rejected the contentions of the convict that the woman went to her house instead of police station after the incident, saying “I find nothing unusual in the victim going to her house first. One cannot expect every rape victim to straightaway go to police station and lodge complaint.” It also turned down the claim that the 21-year-old victim had falsely implicated the youth due to an earlier scuffle between them, saying “it is not believable that a girl would falsely implicate any innocent person in a grave offence like rape just for the reason that an altercation had taken place with her.” According to the prosecution, on the foggy morning of January 18, 2016, when the woman was walking towards a bus stand from her house to go to office, the accused caught hold of her from behind, gagged her and took her to the fields at a village near Dwarka. It said when she raised an alarm, he threatened to kill her, adding that she tried to run away and cried for help but the accused dragged her to an isolated area and raped her. During trial, the accused denied the allegations saying he was falsely implicated as he had an altercation with the woman two days before the incident and she was taking revenge by making the complaint.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)
