<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>A 50-year old woman was allegedly killed by her 24-year-old son for resisting his attempts to rape her at their house in Kailaras town in the Morena district of Madhya Pradesh, the police said on Tuesday.The accused was arrested on Monday, three days after the incident.”The body of the woman was found at her home on the morning of October 6. Preliminary investigation and the crime scene had suggested that someone attempted to rape or had raped the victim before killing her,” Kailaras police station in charge Naveen Yadav said.The officer said the woman’s body bore injury marks, suggesting that she was beaten up for resisting her attacker.Yadav said police grew suspicious after they found that the woman’s son was an alcoholic and was behaving strangely since the incident.”The man has admitted having committed the crime during his interrogation,” the officer said.On the day of the incident, the heavily drunk man went to his mother’s room and tried to force himself on her, Yadav said, adding that the man had thrashed his mother and killed her with a stone.He said the accused then slept off in the same room after committing the crime.Police have recovered the blood-soaked clothes and the stone used by the accused in the crime.

In view of the above discussion, the appeal succeeds. The appellants are acquitted of all the charges,” it said in an order dated on September 11.The court found that none of the allegations for dowry made by the victim’s family were established during cross examination. It also added that the “temperament” of the woman was such that when she was at her parental home, after about two months of her marriage, she had tried to commit suicide.”The trial court has convicted all the appellants on the basis of conjectures and implications which could not have been done as there was neither any proof of dowry demand nor harassment of deceased by the appellants,” the judge said.

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Believe it or not but the Capital witnesses at least one case of snatching an hour on average. And that’s not all. Data shows that from 2011 to 2015, incidents of snatching doubled more than eightfold showing that perpetrators were becoming more bold about targeting victims and stealing from them. As for 2017, police data shows that 5,682 cases of snatching have been registered till August, suggesting that the total number of cases may go beyond other years by this year-end. Police say that the victims of snatching are usually women and especially elderly women. This fact was borne out on Monday when a 50-year-old woman almost died when she fell off a moving auto while resisting a snatching bid from two bike borne men who were trying to take her purse. Senior police officials stated that doctors told them that the woman might lose her memory permanently.As far as dealing with snatching was concerned, a senior police officer told DNA that a stricter law is required to curb the menace, as mostly juveniles who are often active gang-members, commit this crime.”Protected by law, these juveniles commit snatching and are released. Also, snatching has not been listed as a heinous crime. This provides for easy bail. Even if the police ensures a crackdown on snatching gangs, the law is not harsh enough to create deterrence,” the police officer said. He added that even if they are arrested, the lack of reformatory programs in jail, resulted in the accused making contacts with known criminals.Coming to the modus operandi of these gangs, the officer said they were mostly led by criminals who induct juveniles and other youth with criminal backgrounds to commit such offences.”In many cases it has also been seen that members of auto lifting gangs lend stolen two wheelers to these youth which they use in fleeing from the spot after snatching. Since the vehicles are stolen, even if it is recovered following surveillance, the accused remain untraced,” the officer said.Since CCTV footage have helped crack a lot of such cases, these men cover their faces or work at dark stretches to keep their identity hidden, police said.CHALLENGES BEFORE LAWJuveniles are active gang members who don’t get harsh punishments

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>A Delhi court has acquitted a man and his brother in a dowry harassment case lodged by a woman, saying it seemed to be a “concocted and false” complaint filed due to a property dispute. The court absolved the man, along with his brother, of the charges of torturing, wrongfully confining and threatening his wife to grab the property given to her by her father. “The story as disclosed by the complainant on the face of it seems to be concocted and false and it appears to be a dispute over a 50-square yard plot in the complainant’s name. “There is nothing on record to prove that she was subjected to cruelty in lieu of demand for dowry,” Metropolitan Magistrate Chetna Singh said. According to the prosecution, a complaint was lodged by the woman and her father alleging that her husband used to beat her after consuming alcohol and was forcing her to give him documents of the property. It said she left her husband’s house and started living with her brother-in-law, adding that he too began beating and torturing her. A complaint was lodged and the two men were arrested for the offences of cruelty, wrongful confinement, voluntarily causing hurt and threatening of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). She, however, resiled from her statement during cross examination and said the complaint was lodged by her father and she was not aware of it. During the trial, the prosecution told the court that the woman was staying with her brother-in-law willingly and no allegations of her wrongful confinement were made by her to the police or at that time when the duo were arrested. The accused had denied the allegations levelled against them and claimed they were falsely implicated. The court said, “There is nothing on record to suggest that the woman was kept forcefully by the accused or that she was subjected to cruelty in connection with demand of dowry or that she was threatened by any of the accused persons.”(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)
<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>A city court has asked senior Delhi Police officers to sensitise their junior officers on how to deal with sexual assault cases, and to stick to the High Court directives while dealing with such cases.Metropolitan Magistrate Abhilash Malhotra passed the directive while slamming the police for not complying with its order to assess the threat perception and provide security to an alleged rape victim, who is now missing.”It is very strange that in a case where the court has ordered to assess threat perception and provide security to the complainant or rape victim, she is now missing,” the court stated, adding that the officials had given a “deaf ear” to its order. It also asked the Delhi Commissioner of Police to look into the matter and submit a report in this regard by July 31.”The DCP also directed cops to sensitise the officers to deal with cases of sexual assault with prudence,” it said.This happened during a hearing of a complaint filed by a rape victim who tried to withdraw her complaint after the first hearing, without giving any reasons. The episode prompted the court to direct the police to assess the threat perception and provide necessary security to her. After the first hearing, she had moved an application to stop legal proceedings. On March 23, the additional DCP of north district filed a report stating that the woman could not be contacted and her mobile phone was also switched off.The court, however, noted that on the same day, another sub-inspector filed a separate report stating that the woman gave a written statement to him claiming she had given the complaint under pressure and her signatures were taken on a blank paper to falsely implicate the accused. Hence the conduct on the part of the two officials was “negligent”.
<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>A monthly interim maintenance amount of Rs 3,500 is not high in view of the cost of living in Delhi, a court here has observed while dismissing a man’s plea against an order directing him to maintain his estranged wife. The court, while denying relief to the man, accused in a domestic violence case, said an interim maintenance is given to a woman as she is entitled to a status which she was enjoying as a married woman. “Keeping in view the mandate of superior courts, the purpose behind awarding an interim maintenance is not only to save the wife from starvation and destitution…she is also entitled to lead the life which she was enjoying before parting the company of her spouse. “In my opinion, considering the socio economic status of parties, the interim maintenance as awarded by the trial court does not seem to be on a higher side, especially keeping in view the cost of living index in a metropolitan city like Delhi,” Additional Sessions Judge Lokesh Kumar Sharma said. In his appeal filed against the magisterial court order, the man contended that the woman was a professional teacher and was earning a handsome salary. He had claimed that the woman was trying to take benefits by seeking court’s sympathy and had levelled false allegations against him. The woman had lodged a complaint against her husband for offences under sections 498A (subjecting women to cruelty) and 406 (criminal breach of trust) of the IPC.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Interim maintenance cannot be denied to a woman by her estranged spouse on the ground that she is capable of sustaining herself, a Delhi court has said. The sessions court made the observation while allowing a woman’s appeal against a magisterial court order that had refused her interim maintenance from her husband in a domestic violence case. “In the view of this court, the capability of a wife to earn livelihood ipso facto cannot be made a ground to reject the claim of maintenance,” Additional Sessions Judge Vivek Kumar Gulia said, adding it is not required in law that a wife must be a destitute if she applies for monetary relief. “It is not the requirement of law that the wife must be absolutely destitute before she applies for maintenance. The test is whether the wife is in position to maintain herself the way she was used to in her husband’s home. “Thus, the Court is required to see what are the means available to the deserted wife while she was living with her husband and the efforts made by the wife after the desertion to survive somehow need not be considered to ascertain whether she is capable of maintaining herself,” the judge said. The court, while directing the man to pay Rs 3,000 as monthly interim maintenance to his estranged wife, rejected his claim that the woman was qualified and could easily find a job to maintain herself but she chose to quit. “First of all, it is noteworthy that there is nothing on record to counter the claim of the appellant (woman) that she is only a graduate and does not have any professional qualification and thus, it is not the case that she can get a job without much efforts and has opted to sit idle at home. “Even professional qualification of wife is not a bar to grant her maintenance,” it said. It further noted that the husband mentioned in the court that his wife did not opt for a job as she wanted to take care of her in laws. “Hence, now when she is residing at her parents’ house, she cannot be expected to search for job while ignoring her parents.” “When the man and his family had accepted the woman’s alleged decision to remain at home to look after her in-laws, no other standard can be applied to ascertain her capability to earn while staying at her parental home,” it said. According to the woman who got married in January 2015, she was harassed by her husband and in-laws for bringing insufficient dowry. She left her matrimonial house within five months of the wedding. Denying the allegations, her estranged husband had said that the woman’s behaviour towards his parents was not good and she had chosen to leave the job. She had moved the magisterial court for maintenance, but her plea was dismissed on the ground that it was her choice not to work but she was able-bodied and could earn a living.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)
