Failed unions ruin working women too, says court

Working women are devastated when their marriage crumbles and they require considerable time to garner strength, a Delhi court has said, while enhancing the maintenance for a woman who had alleged that she was getting a meager amount whereas her husband was living luxuriously.Additional sessions judge Ajay Kumar Kuhar said women should not be dependent on men for survival and courts should be slow in awarding maintenance just because a woman demanded it. Women need strength to overcome marriage woes, he said.”There is no doubt that when there are talks of gender equality, it is expected that a woman should not be dependent on a man for her survival, particularly when she has capacity to make her own living. Courts should be slow in awarding maintenance on the mere asking for it by the wife and must consider the capability and capacity of the claimant to earn her livelihood.At the same time, one has to consider the fact that many a times, even a working woman is so devastated when her marriage crumbles that it takes considerable time for her to gather the strength to beat the reality,” the court stated.Ekta Puri, who had studied filmmaking and was yet to start her career, had filed an appeal against an order passed by a Metropolitan Magistrate, whereby she was entitled to Rs 1 lakh for a year and another Rs 70,000 for accommodation after separation from her husband Vikramjit Singh Puri.Her counsel contended that her husband concealed his income and did not show records of movable and immovable assets in the court. It was also submitted that he was spending over Rs 70,000 on his entertainment and other expenses but was not ready to pay proper maintenance to his wife.The court, while deciding the case in favour of the woman, said the qualification that Ekta possesses can be utilised only in the film industry, which offers a very uncertain career and work on the principle of out of sight, out of mind. To regain her foothold in the film industry will not be an easy task for her, considering the mental state she must have been in after the broken marriage.The court further held that Vikramjit was maintaining high standards of living and had concealed his income documents. “Therefore, without going into the matter as it is only at the initial stage and a prima facie view of the facts is to be considered, I would say that the husband is maintaining a high standard of living, which a person cannot achieve and maintain with only Rs 1 lakh per month. Needless to adhere that the appellant being his wife is entitled to live the same lifestyle,” the court said in its order.The judge directed Vikramjit to pay Rs 2 lakh per month to Ekta and to pay Rs 70,000 for alternate accommodation.

Cops caught between couple’s blame game

The police got trapped in the case of a woman leaving her husband’s house and staying separate with her husband’s friend. Police has filed a case under Section 497 of IPC but considering this case related to the adultery law, it is non cognisable and handed it over to the court to settle the whole case.It is noteworthy that while hearing a PIL in the past, the Supreme Court has also asked to consider a change in the old 497 section and asked for convicting women also with men in such cases.A person residing in Paharganj area lodged an FIR in the Mandore police station on Tuesday that he had been married for twelve years. He has two children from this marriage. He lived in Bawadi earlier but due to his job, he came to Paharganj and started living there.He became a friend of a contractor there.

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.

Delhi HC awards 3-year jail term to father ‘responsible’ for death of unborn baby

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>”There is no quick answer to the pain a woman feels after losing an unborn child, regardless of circumstances”, the Delhi High court has said while enhancing the sentence of a man for banging his car to a tree in fits of rage resulting in the death of his unborn eight-month baby in his wife’s womb.A bench of Justice Vipin Sanghi and Justice PS Teji enhanced the sentence to three years from a period already undergone. He also directed the accused to deposit Rs 3, 50,000 at the NPS School for Deaf and Dumb, Near Delhi Police Apartments, Mayur Vihar Phase-I, Delhi, an orphanage by way of seven installments in the sum of Rs.50,000 each. “It is also apparent that due to the act done by the respondent, not only his wife/complainant suffered injuries on her person, but an unborn child has also lost his life. There is no quick answer to the pain a woman feels after losing an unborn child, regardless of circumstances.”“The victim has been the unborn child. He is not in this world and, in view of the settlement arrived at between the respondent and his wife, his cause is not being pursued by his mother,” the bench said.The court’s direction comes while hearing an appeal by the State wherein they requested the enhancement of sentence of the Arshdeep Singh who was found guilty under sections 307 (Attempt to murder) and section 316 (Causing death of quick unborn child by act amounting to culpable homicide ) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).According to a complaint lodged by his wife, Singh had marital discords with his wife. It also revealed that on April 17, 2013 her husband had come to her parental home to take her back and picked up a quarrel with her at parental home also.She also divulged that while returning in Santro Car, Singh threatened that he would kill her as well as the unborn child and would also kill himself. The convict then gave fist punches on the abdominal region of his wife and deliberately struck the car against a truck and then against a tree.The court held that even though both the parties might have come to a settlement but considering the background, the sentence should be enhanced.“In view of the peculiar facts and circumstances of the case and considering the submission made by the counsel for the respondent/ convict as well as learned APP for the State, we are of the opinion that the sentence awarded to the respondent/convict under Section 307/316 IPC is on the lower side and he deserves to undergo minimum sentence of three years of imprisonment, in addition to the period already undergone (19 days),” the court held.

Shashi Tharoor urges Delhi HC to stop Arnab Goswami from ‘misreporting’ his wife Sunanda Pushkar’s death

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Congress MP Shashi Tharoor on Tuesday urged the Delhi High Court to stop journalist Arnab Goswami and his news channel Republic TV from “misreporting” his wife Sunanda Pushkar’s death, saying his “right to be left alone” and “right to silence” must be respected.The submission was made before Justice Manmohan, who reserved the verdict on Tharoor’s plea seeking to restrain Goswami and his channel from airing any news or debate about the death of Pushkar.The journalist and the channel, on the other hand, said they had only placed the actual evidence and the police report while broadcasting the news.The Thiruvananthapuram Lok Sabha MP has filed an interim application for stopping the channel from broadcasting the incident in the pending Rs two crore civil defamation suit against the TV anchor and Republic TV.Senior advocate Salman Khurshid, appearing for Tharoor, submitted that the court must direct Goswami and the channel not to mention the expression “murder of Sunanda Pushkar”, as it is yet to be established by a competent court that her death was “murder”, and ensure that the trial is not prejudiced.”Goswami and channel must not involve in rhetorical assertions,” Khurshid contended.Senior advocate Sandeep Sethi, appearing for Goswami and the channel, said they have neither “condemned” Tharoor, nor suggested that he was involved in the death of his wife.The counsel also submitted that the Congress leader was not called “the killer” of his wife by the journalist or the channel, as claimed by Tharoor.After hearing the arguments of all the parties, the court reserved its order.Tharoor has filed three different applications through his counsel Gaurav Gupta seeking various directions, including not to make any defamatory publication against him in any manner.Pushkar was found dead in a suite of a five-star hotel in south Delhi on the night of January 17, 2014. The matter is still under investigation.Tharoor had on May 26 this year filed the civil defamation suit against Goswami and Republic TV in the High Court.He had also sought a direction from the high court to restrain the TV channel from broadcasting any show relating to the death of his wife till the investigation is completed by the Delhi Police.Tharoor has referred to the broadcasting of news items from May 8 to 13 when the TV channel claimed to have aired an expose connected to the death of his wife.The politician has alleged that despite assurances given in the court on May 29 by the counsel for Goswami and Republic TV, they were engaged in “defaming and maligning” him.The court had on May 29 said the journalist and his news channel could put out stories stating facts related to the investigation of Pushkar’s death, but could not call the Lok Sabha MP a “criminal”. It had also told their counsel to reduce the rhetoric.Goswami and the channel had in their affidavit said that they have abided by the court’s direction and in “no manner misreported or misled the viewers as the facts were correctly reported”.They have also claimed that the suit has been “instituted with an oblique and ulterior motive and is a misguided attempt to muzzle a media channel and the dissemination of true facts to the public”.

MPCC’s Ex-Gen Secy Mahadev Shelar commits suicide

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Maharashtra Pradesh Congress Committee (MPCC) former general secretary and party spokesperson Mahadev Shelar allegedly committed suicide at his Mulund residence on Saturday afternoon by hanging himself inside his study. Mulund police said they have found a suicide note which blamed ill-health for the extreme step. He is survived by his wife, daughter and son.From a budding Congress worker who hailed from the erstwhile Girangaon, the textile mill area in central Mumbai, to being appointed MPCC general secretary and spokesperson, Shelar had come a long way. He was born in Wai taluka, Satara district, and was considered close to former chief minister Prithviraj Chavan.According to the police, the 64-year-old had been ill and depressed for the past few years. He had problems with his hearing and eyesight, and also suffered from diabetes, officers said.According to the police, on Saturday, Shelar went for his routine walk and had lunch at 1.30 pm. After his wife, Mangala, went to buy groceries, he went into his study at his apartment in Bilva Society at LBS Marg, Mulund.”His wife opened the door with a duplicate key and did not find her husband in the hall,” said a senior police officer from Mulund. “She then went inside the study, only to find him hanging by a nylon rope.Shelar was rushed to Fortis Hospital, but declared dead before admission.”According to police, Shelar had been planning this for a while as the suicide note was dated 12 October. “He was depressed and had also spoken to family members about his health. We have recorded statements of his wife and son. His daughter, Meenal, is in USA and will be returning to India for the final rites,” said the officer.Akhilesh Singh, deputy commissioner of police, Zone 7, said, “We have registered an accidental death report and have also found a suicide note. The family does not suspect foul play, but we are probing further.”Shelar’s son Mandar told DNA, “We are in a state of shock and we are co-operating with the police. We will be holding a funeral on Monday.”Shelar had ranked third in the Master of Law LLM exam at University of Mumbai and was employed with a public sector bank till he decided to devote his entire time for party work and was made state party secretary in 2000. He was elevated to general secretary in 2006. In 2007, he contested the BMC election and also the state Assembly poll in 2009. He was defeated in both elections.Soft spoken and known for his calm nature, Shelar strongly defended the party during its difficult phase. He is remembered for giving his best when the Opposition accused the Congress of poor performance during its rule between 1999 and 2014. Even after the Congress party’s rout, Shelar continued to appear on television regularly as a MPCC spokesperson.

Sex with minor wife to be considered as rape, rules Supreme Court

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>In a landmark decision, the Supreme Court on Wednesday ruled that a man indulging in sex with his wife aged between 15 to 18 years could be prosecuted for rape on complaint by her.The top court said that the age of consent is 18 and it can’t be lowered.The apex court was pronouncing its verdict on a plea challenging the validity of an exception clause in the rape law that permits intercourse or sexual act by a man with his wife, not below 15 years.Section 375 of the Indian Penal Code, 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. However, the age of consent is 18 years.A bench headed by Justice Madan B Lokur had on September 6 reserved its order on the plea while questioning the Centre how Parliament could create an exception in law declaring that intercourse or a sexual act by a man with his wife, aged between 15 and less than 18 years, is not rape when the age of consent is 18.The apex court had said it did not want to go into the aspect of marital rape, but when the age of consent was 18 years for “all purposes”, why was such an exception made in the IPC. Responding to the query, the Centre’s counsel had said if this exception under the IPC goes, then it would open up the arena of marital rape which does not exist in India.

Man arrested for nephew’s murder

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>South-West district police have arrested a man involved in the murder of a minor boy from Kailashpuri area of Sagarpur in West Delhi on Sunday.According to police, the accused has been identified as Nanhe Lal, who murdered his nephew on suspicion of his having illicit relations with his wife on August 1. He was arrested following a tip off regarding his visit to Sagarpur.“We received information that Lal was to visit Sagarpur, following which a trap was laid. A special team was formed and he was arrested. During sustained interrogation, he confessed to his crime,” said Gaurav Sharma, Additional Deputy Commissioner of police (South-West).Earlier, Lal had cleverly joined the investigation and tried to misguide police. He had also won the confidence of the deceased’s parents. However, his version was not corroborated by technical evidence.“When he sensed police was onto him and able to trace him, he switched off his mobile phone and shifted locations. Several raids were also conducted in Badayun and Bareilly to find the suspect, but he remained untraceable,” added Sharma.During the interrogation, the accused revealed that in 2013, he and his wife shifted to Longowal area of Punjab. He started suspecting the character of his wife and used to beat her. His wife had good relations with his nephew (Lal) and this made him suspect there was something amiss.“He made a plan to set up his wife and her brother for the murder of his nephew to get rid of his wife and his nephew in one go,” Sharma added.

4 of family consume poison, two die

According to the police, Manish Singh, 30, consumed poison along with his wife Pinky, 28, and daughters Pragati, 7, and Pratiksha, eight-months-old. <!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Late on Sunday night, a 30-year-old car dealer from Nala Sopara allegedly consumed poison along with his two daughters and wife. The car dealer and his seven-year-old daughter died immediately while his wife and eight-month-old daughter have survived and are in a critical condition. The police suspect financial problems as the reason behind the extreme step.According to the police, Manish Singh, 30, consumed poison along with his wife Pinky, 28, and daughters Pragati, 7, and Pratiksha, eight-months-old. A suicide note written by Manish was found which did not blame any person for the extreme step. The primary investigations into the case have revealed that the car dealer was in debt and was unable to cope with the pressure leading to the extreme step. Pinky and Pratiksha are battling for their lives and are being treated at the civic-run hospital in Nala Sopara.”Manish’s father-in-law heard Pinky’s screams after he found his daughter and her husband motionless. That’s when both were rushed to the hospital. The woman is not in the condition to speak and is unconscious,” said a Tulinj police officer.”It is unclear whether the family members were forced to consume poison or were given the poison without their knowledge by Manish. We have registered a case of accidental death in this regard. A case of murder will be registered only after the woman reveals in her statement that the family members were forced to consume poison leading to the death of the seven-year-old girl,” said Kishore Khairnar, Senior Inspector, Tulinj police station.

Appeal for help: I’m Struggling To Save My 45-Day-Old Baby Girl

<!– /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)

He, however, said that it “would have been better” if the judgement was given unanimously by the five-judge Constitution bench. “I am in agreement with the majority verdict, which is binding. The minority view is to bring a law in the issue in next six months,” Sorabjee said.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)

Husband must provide for his wife and child, says court

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>”Every able-bodied husband is liable to maintain his wife and children and the husband cannot escape from this liability,” a Delhi court said.The observation was given by Additional Sessions Judge Ramesh Kumar — while deciding the appeal of a man who had challenged the trial court’s order — in the court.The court upheld the trial court’s decision which stated that Banwari Rathore, a driver by profession had to pay Rs 3,000 as maintenance to his wife. Rathore has contended that since his monthly income is Rs 8,000 and he does not have any other source of income, it is very difficult for him to provide Rs 3,000 to his wife as maintenance.However, the judge dismissed his appeal stating that, “looking at the present cost of living in the metropolitan city like Delhi, the order passed by the trial court regarding payment of maintenance to the tune of Rs 3,000 is just and appropriate.””‘Every able-bodied husband is liable to maintain his wife and children and the appellant, in the present case, cannot escape from the said liability,” the judge said in the order dated July 7.Indra Rathore had filed a case against her husband alleging that she was subjected to harassment, humiliation and torture for insufficient dowry.She also claimed that her husband was engaged in an illicit relationship with another woman and despite complaints to the Commissioner of Police and higher authorities, no action was taken.Following this, the trial court awarded her a maintenance of Rs 3,000 in January, 2016. However, unhappy with the court’s decision, Banwari then challenged it in the sessions court stating that the amount was “unaffordable.”The court, while dismissing the appeal, said that the salary figures were filed in the court in 2015 and after two years, “there must have been some increase in the salary of the appellant.”

SC sets aside exoneration of ex-TN minister in DA case

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>In a setback to DMK veteran K N Nehru, the Supreme Court has paved the way for further investigation into the alleged disporportionate assets of his son and set aside his exoneration in the case. The apex court has set aside the order of the Madras High Court exonerating Nehru, a former transport minister, and his wife terming their discharge pending investigation as “visibly prematured” and “unsustainable in law as well as on facts”. Nehru, his wife Shanta and son Arun are accused of acquiring assets disproportionate to their known sources of income during his tenure as the transport minister of Tamil Nadu between 2006 and 2011. Currently an MLA from the Tiruchirappalli West constituency, he has been a four-time legislator of the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) party. “The impugned order directing the discharge of the respondents is hereby set aside and the order of the Trial Court vis-a-vis them is restored,” a bench of Justices Arun Mishra and Amitava Roy said. It directed the vigilance department to complete further investigation at the earliest so as to enable the trial court to proceed in accordance with law. The bench upheld the direction of High Court and the trial court for further probe and said the probe agency should keep in mind “the seriousness of the charge and the avowed objectives of the anti-corruption law involved and conduct the investigation as expected of it and submit its report as expeditiously as possible”. The apex court allowed the appeal of the state government challenging the High Court order exonerating Nehru and his wife but affirming the direction for further probe against his son Arun. “Having regard to the FIR, the explanation provided by the respondent No.1 (Nehru), the charge-sheet submitted as well as the indispensability of the scrutiny of the sources of income of Arun and his assets, we are of the view that the courts below had rightly directed further investigation to verify the genuineness or otherwise of the source(s) of income of Arun and his assets and the bearing thereof, if any, on the charge levelled against the respondents,” it said. The court observed that the High Court, having endorsed the direction for further investigation vis-a-vis Arun, ought not to have recorded its findings of exoneration of Nehru and his wife at this stage. “In fact, the discharge of the respondents flies in the face of the direction for further investigation into the affairs of Arun in order to verify the lawfulness or otherwise of his source of income and his assets. “In our estimate, in view of the correlation of the explanation provided by the respondent No.1 to the imputation of disproportionate assets and the probe ordered into the affairs of Arun, to say the least, the discharge of the respondents before the completion of the investigation is visibly prematured,” the bench said. Nehru in his explanation about his income said he had received the amount only from his son Arun and the latter had received remuneration for which he had paid TDS under the Income Tax Act and therefore the question of disproportionateness of his assets did not arise. The court said that the exoneration of Nehru and his wife pending investigation amounted to “prejudging the charge” against them. “We have thus no hesitation to hold that the order of the High Court, discharging the respondents herein, pending the investigation against Arun, at this stage, is unsustainable in law as well as on facts,” the bench said. Senior advocate Mukul Rohatgi, appearing for the state government, contended that on taking into account the materials on record, the High Court ought not to have discharged them at this stage while affirming further probe into the sources of income of Arun. He said the outcome of the further probe would have a vital bearing on the charge leveled against the accused and their discharge at this stage is wholly unwarranted. Counsel appearing for Nehru and others said that the available materials do not substantiate the allegation and the discharge of the respondents is perfectly justified and does not merit any interference. An FIR was lodged in 2011 against Nehru, his wife and son by the Deputy Superintendent of Police (vigilance & anti- corruption), Trichy, alleging that Nehru while serving as the transport minister had acquired assets in his name and in the names of his wife and son far beyond their known sources of income. Before the check-period (May 13, 2006-March 24, 2011) both husband, wife and son had assets worth over Rs 2.83 crore which swelled to over Rs 18.52 crore at the end of the period. After the charge sheet was filed against them, the accused moved trial court seeking discharge but the court ordered further probe into the assets and income of Arun. The High Court on December 19, 2013, exonerated Nehru and his wife but affirmed further probe into the assets and income of Arun.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)

I can inquire about her later and I am sure she will come home in a couple of days.”Pushpa is a bank agent and loves to visit religious places. “Every year the group visited different places of pilgrimage,” Gosavi said. “This was the first time they went on Amarnath yatra.

Couple who cooked up Mt Everest climb accuse Pune police of

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Suspended police constable couple Dinesh and Tarkeshwari Rathod, who had allegedly faked about scaling Mount Everest in May last year, today accused city police officials of ill-treating them. They also claimed to have not received any formal communication yet about banning their entry into Nepal for 10 years. Sticking to their claims of successful expedition of the world’s highest peak, the couple said they had necessary proofs. “We are still firm about our claim of scaling Mt Everest. We have all proofs and evidences which can corroborate that we had scaled the peak. We have not yet received any communication from Nepal government that we have been banned in that country for ten years,” they told reporters here in a joint press conference. Dinesh and Tarkeshwari alleged that due to “mental harassment” and “inhuman treatment” meted out to them by city commissioner of police Rashmi Shukla and other police officials, Tarkeshwari delivered a stillborn baby recently. “When a departmental inquiry was going on against us, we came to know about our suspension from media, but there was no formal communication from the city police in this regard,” Rathods claimed. Dinesh said when his wife was in the ninth month of her pregnancy, some police personnel used to come to their residence to serve them a notice. “On May 1, when my wife was alone in the house, a policeman came to our house and insisted that he would hand over the notice to me only. “Since I was not at home, my wife told him to hand over the notice to her since she was also a part of all this issue. However, he did not do so which led to an argument. My wife felt unconscious during the course of argument. The police constable did not show any concern for her and left her alone,” Dinesh claimed. He said Tarkeshwari delivered a stillborn baby on May 2. “We have approached the Human Rights Commission, Women’ Commission and filed a case against Pune police for the misuse of power, violation of fundamental rights, defamation and abetment to grievous injuries,” the cop said. When contacted, the police commissioner said the couple has been absconding and did not remain present for the departmental inquiry. “We have taken action against them on the basis of our inquiry and the report from the Nepal government,” she said.

But the Canadian border agency at the airport did not allow me to enter the country. “I told them that I am a retired senior officer of the Indian police, the CRPF.

Kerala court rejects petition to legalise talaq sent by post

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>A Malappuram court has rejected a man’s petition to legalise the talaq declaration to his wife sent by registered post, observing that due process as per the Islamic law was not followed. Dismissing the petition by Ali Faizi from this district yesterday, family court Judge Ramesh Bhai noted that the petitioner had failed to produce evidence of the due procedures followed for the talaq in question as per the religious law. Citing earlier orders of the Kerala and Karnataka High courts, the judge held that according to the Holy Quran, the talaq must be for a reasonable cause and preceded by reconciliation attempts as per the Islamic law. The petitioner sought to validate the talaq declaration to legally divorce his wife. However, the wife argued that the talaq cannot be considered legally valid as the petitioner did not follow the procedures as specified in the Muslim law. The talaq letter was sent by Faizi in 2012 by registered post and his wife had not accepted it, saying he had not cited any reason for the divorce. The rejection of the talaq declaration plea by the court comes against the backdrop of the Supreme Court proceedings on triple talaq. A five-judge Supreme Court bench, comprising judges from different religious communities, Sikh, Christian, Parsi, Hindu and Muslim, is hearing a batch of pleas challenging the constitutional validity of ‘triple talaq,’ ‘nikah halala’ and polygamy practices among Muslims. The court has fixed a six-day schedule for hearing, in which three days are available for those challenging triple talaq and three days for those defending it. The Centre had on October 7 last opposed in the apex court the practice of triple talaq, nikah halala and polygamy among Muslims and favoured a relook on grounds like gender equality and secularism.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)

Delhi: Police inspector found dead, wife demands CBI inquiry against Addl DCP

My husband finally asked for a transfer and he was transferred to District Investigation Unit (DIU) of south east district Delhi for investigating the old and unsolved files,” the complaint letter read.Ganguly’s wife also said that her husband used to discuss with her the harassment being done with him. “He was abused and inappropriate language was used by Java 2 which he had been tolerating since long. Java 2 used to threaten my husband to get him dismissed from the service,” the statement read.Narrating the entire incident, the wife indicated towards some conspiracy of how he was called to the CR Park Police Station to collect a file on a holiday and later in the evening, he was shot dead which the police state as suicide.Two days after Police Inspector Kaushal Ganguly shot himself at the CR Park Police Station, the family of the deceased alleged that he was tortured by one of his senior officers, adding that that the senior inspector was behind the death. “My husband was very happy after his promotion and was even working fine. But after March, he was little disturbed. I even asked him what the matter was. He told me that one of his senior officer; I don’t know his name, troubles him a lot. A person takes time to understand new work. He said that his senior used to just keep his file aside. He was humiliated in front of his juniors,” said the wife of Ganguly.His wife said that he had a very jolly nature and could never imagine that he would take such a drastic step. “My husband even told me that his senior abused him too and even passed racist comment. Police claims are false that my husband was depressed. I work in a hospital, if he would have been in depression, I would have known about it,” she added.She said that she had a word with Ganguly few hours before he allegedly shot himself and even at that time he seemed fine. “His senior harassed him a lot publicly. It is the police’s duty to protect the people. How can a police inspector behave in such a way?” said Ganguly’s daughter.The family asserted that Ganguly was right handed and questioned as to how he could shoot himself with his left hand.

So far we have not come across any complaint regarding this,” he said.Earlier on Wednesday, the police inspector allegedly shot himself dead at Delhi’s CR Park Police Station. He was immediately rushed to the hospital where he was declared brought dead. Till now no suicide note has been found so far. ​

Wife’s uncovered head not cruelty to husband: HC

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>In an astonishing show of entitled, a man filed for divorce in the Bombay High Court on grounds of cruelty, saying his wife would not cover her head with a pallu, sometimes did not wear a mangalsutra and sindoor. His mother, in an earlier petition, had deposed saying the bride enjoyed eating in restaurants and social outings. How the wife feels about this is unknown, but the couple has been living apart for 16 years. She walked out of the marital home in 2000 with their daughter, alleging harassment.The Bombay HC rejected the divorce petition saying that times have changed and women cannot be forced into a traditional mold. “In 21st century,” a division bench of Justice Vasanti A Naik and Justice VM Deshpande said, refusing to grant the divorce decree, “a man would not be entitled to seek a divorce solely on these grounds. A woman cannot be expected to cover her head with a pallu in this century. Merely because a woman sometimes removes her mangalsutra and vermilion on her forehead, a man cannot seek the severance of the matrimonial ties.”The spouses married in 1995 and have been living separately since 2000. The husband had filed a divorce petition in the family court in 2006, which was rejected. Thus he moved the High Court.The man’s mother had deposed in the family court. The bench had then rejected her evidence, saying, “This, even if it would have been pleaded by the husband as a ground for divorce, would not constitute cruelty as a young married girl would sometimes like to go for an outing and would like to eat in a restaurant.”The court also rejected the grounds of desertion levelled by the husband, who said the wife walked out of their matrimonial home with their child. “It is not possible that a married woman would simply leave the matrimonial home never to return without any reason,” the court had said.The HC rejected the husband’s appeal saying, “We find that family court was justified in holding in the circumstances of the case that wife had not treated husband with cruelty, and that she had not deserted him.”THE JUDGMENT”In the 21st century, a man would not be entitled to seek a divorce solely on these grounds. A woman cannot be expected to cover her head with a pallu in this century. Merely because a woman sometimes removes her mangalsutra and vermilion on her forehead, a man cannot seek the severance of the matrimonial ties.”

Unable to pay bribe for wheelchair, patient uses toy tricycle

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The state-run Gandhi Hospital authorities today constituted a committee to probe into the allegations that a patient was denied wheelchair for being unable to pay “bribes.” In absence of the wheelchair, the patient, with severe mobility problems, has been left moving around in the hospital for treatment, on a kids’ tricycle of his son, that his wife brings to the hospital while visiting it with him.

But the hospital authorities, she said, have been postponing it on various pretexts, including the paucity of beds. She further said as ward-boys had been demanding Rs 100 to Rs 200 for providing wheelchair, she had been bringing their son’s tricycle to the hospital during their visits. “At least on five to six occasions I paid the amount. But, on Wednesday, I was not able to pay because I did not have the money. I brought this tricycle to the hospital and made my husband sit on it to move around in the hospital premises for treatment,” said Santoshi, who stays in Begumpet area here.

Kick like a girl… that’s how we’ll show them: Boy’s message to girl in football game goes viral

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Today, in a world where gender discrimination is still an issue with deal with on a daily basis, a Mumbai father’s tale has won hearts.Speaking to Humans of Bombay, the unidentified man, who is seen with his two sons, talks about the importance of not teaching his sons that women need to be empowered because ‘we’re proving that they’re weaker and need us to help them.’This lesson has drawn a lot of praise on social media, with people praising the father for raising his boys in the right way. “Kudos to you and your wife. Parents like the both of you are what the world needs! I’m sure your boys are going to grow up to be wonderful human beings who understand the importance of compassion and equality! Bless u all!” (sic) says one user.Read the full post here:“When we had our son, a lot of people congratulated my wife saying, ‘you can relax now…you have a son in the house’ and my wife and I laughed at their mentality but realised that this is how people still think. I was overjoyed that I had a son, but I knew I wanted to raise him right. It’s okay if he cries and if he shows his emotions — my wife and I are constantly telling him that crying doesn’t make him any less of a man. We teach him to respect girls as equals and even in little things like a game of football or cricket to not make fun of them — that’s where it all begins.“Just the other day at the park, they were playing football and right before this small girl was about to kick the ball, a boy shouted — ‘don’t kick like a girl…we’ll lose’ and everyone began to laugh. That small girl looked so shaken, but before anyone could say anything my son went up to her and said, ‘kick like a girl…that’s how we’ll show them how to win!’ and I promise you, that girl was beaming — she played like a real rock star.“As a father, I felt proud because the boys we raise today are the men of tomorrow. Every day we hear things about women empowerment and feminism but I’m trying to teach my son that women don’t need to be empowered— they already are. By trying to empower them, we’re proving that they’re weaker and need us to help them. Truth is, women are ready to rule the world as is…all they need is the world to be fair to them —to give them the respect they deserve…whether it’s at home, at work or out on the streets.”

HC upholds divorce granted for denial of ‘conjugal bliss’

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Delhi High Court has upheld a trial court’s verdict granting divorce to a man on the grounds that his wife had denied him “conjugal bliss” for about two months after their marriage and had levelled unproved allegations of adultery. A bench of justices Pradeep Nandrajog and Yogesh Khanna dismissed an appeal filed by the woman, who had approached the high court against trial court’s June last year order granting divorce, saying there was “no infirmity” in it. “We find no infirmity in the view taken by the judge, family courts, that the husband has been able to establish the grounds on which the marriage has been annulled,” the bench said. The trial court had granted divorce to the man, who got married in February 2002, on grounds of desertion and cruelty. In its verdict, the bench noted that though the woman had levelled allegations of adultery against the man, she could not prove it by way of any evidence. “But suffice would it be for us to highlight that the wife admitted that there was initially no sex between the couple. She pleaded the reason being her husband was living in adultery with a girl and hence it was he who initially did not consummate the marriage,” the high court observed. “The version of the wife that her husband had an adulterous relationship has not been made good by her during her evidence. She could not name the girl. She did not depose to any fact wherefrom an adulterous relationship could be gathered,” it noted. The man had moved trial court seeking divorce contending that his wife had initially “resisted consummation of the marriage stating that she had a mental block towards sex” and had later left the matrimonial house. He had said that repeated attempts were made to sort out the differences but it could not fructify. The woman had contested the plea and claimed that she was treated cruelly by the man and her in-laws due to which she was hospitalised for treatment. However, the high court noted that her version that she had to leave her matrimonial house in October 2002 due to the cruelty inflicted upon her by her in-laws was “totally belied” from the documentary evidence.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)

Haven’t talked to my husband, don’t know where he is: BSF jawan Tej Bahadur Singh’s wife’s plea on Facebook

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>On Monday, a BSF jawan became an internet sensation when he posted a video about poor quality food . This led to a huge uproar with Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh promising to take action. However, Tej Bahadur Yadav came under fire from the BSF, who claimed that he is a ‘habitual offender’ who was almost court-martialed in 2010 for indiscipline. BSF claimed that Tej Bahadur even pointed a gun at his senior once. On Tuesday, there was another post on his Facebook account which was reportedly posted by his wife. She took to Facebook to claim that she hadn’t heard from him since last evening, and didn’t even know his condition. She wrote on Facebook: “TEJ BAHADUR KI WIFE. Sabhi desh vasiyo ko mera namaskar mein aap sbhi se social media ke jarye ye batana cha ti hu ki meri mere husband se kal shaam se baat nahi ho pa rahi hume to ye bhi nhi pata ki unko kaha aur kaise halat me rakha gaya hai.”(Tej Bahadur’s wife. Greeting to all Indians. I want to tell you all through social media that I haven’t talked to my husband since yesterday evening. I don’t even know where he is or what condition he is in.) A screenshot of her post: The BSF said the constable, who claimed poor quality food was being served to soldiers on the LoC, was court-martialed in 2010 for indiscipline and aiming a gun at a senior officer even as it assured of a thorough probe into his allegations.”A high-level enquiry is underway as the BSF has taken the allegations leveled by the constable very seriously.”However, prima facie it was found that no other jawan deployed at the same place had any problem with the quality of food being served to them,” IG BSF DK Upadhyaya told reporters here.The IG said DIG level officers who visited the camp earlier had never received any complaint similar to the allegations raised by Constable Tej Bahadur Yadav.”Even Yadav never raised any complaint earlier when the DIG went to the post,” he said.He said the constable has been a habitual offender and was court-martialed in 2010 for indiscipline and pointing a gun at a senior officer.”It is reality. He has many complaints against him including intoxication, insubordination, aiming a gun at a senior officer. He was court-martialed in 2010. But keeping in view his family and his children, he was not dismissed from the service but was given a rigorous imprisonment of 89 days,” the IG said.Upadhyaya said Yadav has applied for a voluntary retirement from the force and was to leave the services on January 31.Regarding the allegations leveled by Yadav in his videos, the IG BSF said the quality of the food was same for the officers and jawans deployed on forward posts.”The BSF itself purchases ration for its force deployed on the International Border, but for the deployment on the Line of Control, the ration is supplied by the army and nobody has ever complained about the quality of the food either on LoC or the IB,” the IG said.He said that as the winter stocking started from January 1, the jawans do not get fresh vegetables as the force rely mostly on tinned food and there has been no complaint against it.”That too is a time-tested method and the quality of the ration from army is also good. The jawans get vegetarian as well as non-vegetarian food as per their liking,” he said.The IG said that to ensure that an impartial inquiry is conducted into the entire episode, Yadav has been shifted from his headquarters.”He has been shifted to another headquarter to ensure that an impartial inquiry is conducted and that he does not complain of being pressurized.”The prima facie inquiry conducted reveal that no other jawan deployed at the same place had any complaint about the quality of the food and they were quite satisfied with it,” he said.The officer said that a thorough probe will be conducted and the aspect of Yadav taking a mobile phone at the forward post will also be probed.”The jawans are not allowed to take mobile phone when on duty on the forward posts and the same has to be deposited before going on duty. This aspect as how he took mobile phone along with him would also be inquired,” the IGP said.Yadav’s videos posted on his Facebook page allegedly showing poor quality food being served to jawans had yesterday gone viral, forcing Home Minister Rajnath Singh to order an inquiry into the entire episode.
