Do Haryanavis condone rapes?

Rewari rapists had assaulted at least four others earlier

Survivors Didn’t Dare To Report Crime, Say Police


At least one or more of the suspects arrested for the September 12 Rewari gang rape had sexually assaulted other women at the same spot — a room with a tubewell next to a farm — and gotten away with it each time because the survivors and their families, who live in the area, did not speak out.

Police said they learnt of the four earlier sexual assaults involving the same group of men, who abducted, drugged and gang-raped a 19-year-old former state topper in board exams on September 12, while interrogating the five suspects.

A sixth suspect, Naveen (Nikku), was arrested on Tuesday from the Army Air Defence College in Odisha’s Gopalpur. Naveen, police said, is a jawan who joined the Army six months ago. Another Army jawan, Pankaj, was arrested in the case on September 23. Two more arrests were made late on Tuesday — Abhishek from Mahendergarh and Manjeet from Rajasthan — for allegedly helping the prime suspects. Mewat SP Nazneen Bhasin said all suspects in the crime have been nabbed.

The room where the suspects assaulted several women

‘Rewari rapists emboldened as no one complained’

Pankaj and his two friends, Nishu and Manish, were identified by police as the prime suspects. The trio allegedly followed the 19-year-old woman all the way to Mahendergarh, 40km away, abducted her at the bus stop where she got off, and brought her back to their Rewari village in Pankaj’s car.

A senior police officer told TOI that Nishu had revealed during interrogation he lured other women to the room in the past, including sex workers, and that his friends had joined him there to sexually assault the women. They had become emboldened with time as no police complaints were filed, and no one spoke openly about it. “They were girls of marriageable age. If it became public knowledge, they would have no future,” a villager said.

But villagers knew all about Nishu, who lived in a sprawling house and came from a wealthy family. He had money to splurge, so a group of local men gravitated towards him. They would meet at Deendayal’s room, where the 19-year-old and women they targeted before her, were raped. Deendayal, too, has been arrested.

“Their luck ran out as the 19-year-old woman went ahead and reported the crime. The men deliberately used Pankaj’s car because she knew him very well and would not get suspicious. Pankaj was trained for his Army job by her father. She knew Nishu as well. These men never thought she will actually report this to the cops, something they had managed to dodge in the past,” said the police officer.

Nishu was sent to 14 days’ judicial custody on Tuesday. The local court also rejected the bail plea of Sanjeev, the registered medical practitioner who the suspects had called when they feared the 19-yearold’s health was sinking. Sanjeev was arrested because he did not report the crime to the police but told local residents about it.

Naveen, the Armyman arrested from Gopalpur, is from the same village, and was home on 28 days’ leave. “He was one of the people who visited the tubewell (room) when the survivor was held captive there. However, he also did not report the matter to the authorities,” said additional DGP Shrikant Jadhav.

Police did not rule out adding rape charges, saying they will make a decision after further investigation. Pankaj and Manish are also still in police custody.

Got no help from Delhi govt, says Asiad bronze medallist

‘Would Have Won Gold Had I Got Support’

New Delhi:

Asiad bronze medal-winning wrestler Divya Kakran stunned the audience at a felicitation ceremony in the presence of chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday, when she slammed the Delhi government for not providing her promised financial support to prepare for the competition.

The 20-year-old Delhi girl, who shifted to Uttar Pradesh last year, said she would have won gold at the recently concluded Jakarta Palembang Asian Games had she been given the support promised to her by Kejriwal after she had won a bronze at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games earlier this year.

Divya, whose father worked as a labourer, said she got nothing from the government despite writing a reminder letter to the CM and making calls to his office.

In a letter to the CM on May 5 this year, Divya had stated: “I need financial and infrastructure support to prepare for the Asiad. The government should take steps to provide better diet, travel, training and living space so that my enthusiasm to win medals for the country continues to be strong.”

“We are poor but we have huge determination. Everybody is supporting me now (after winning the medal), but nobody supported me when I needed support the most… If the government extends help during the period of preparation, we can give our 100% and win gold,” Divya told the CM at the event, where she was being felicitated along with 10 other sportspersons.

Kejriwal, in response, said although it was not the right occasion to count all the “obstacles” in the way of the AAP government’s functioning, many policies of his government had been stopped at the “top level”.


The CM awards Sakshi (Malik) 1 crore, but he doesn’t have time and money to recognise the talent of his own city girl. I have been struggling for funds… My father is a labourer and mother a housewife. What I had demanded from the CM was money to prepare for the Asiad.

What I got in return were empty promises. If I haven’t won a gold at the Asiad, it’s because of the Delhi government

The sports policy of Delhi had many drawbacks. The AAP government tried to improve it… The policies we have drafted so far have been somehow stopped at the top level for various reasons

— Arvind Kejriwal CM

‘Left Delhi for UP as I had no choice’

Kejriwal said Delhi’s sports policy had many drawbacks. “After coming to power, we tried to improve it. Many other players also informed us about the problems they are facing. The policies we have drafted so far have been somehow stopped at the top level for various reasons,” the CM said, indirectly blaming the LG.

A source in the LG office countered the charge, claiming, “No file related to providing financial assistance or facilities to sportspersons was sent by the AAP government to the LG for approval.”

Kejriwal stated that after SC judgment the government was able to implement the policies it had drafted. On August 28, the AAP government announced an increase in the reward amount for the medal winners of the 18th Asian Games in all the categories. The amount was increased to Rs 1 crore from Rs 20 lakh for gold medallists; Rs 75 lakh from Rs 14 lakh for silver medallists, and Rs 50 lakh from Rs 10 lakh for bronze medallists. The government has also doubled the cash incentive for trainers of medal winners from Rs 3 lakh to Rs 6 lakh, the CM said.

“We could do it only after the SC judgment which said that the elected government’s decisions were final and need not be sent to anybody for approval,” Kejriwal said.

Divya is a resident of East Gokulpuri near Loni in east Delhi. “CM (Kejriwal) would award Sakshi (Malik, Olympic bronze winner) Rs 1 crore, but he doesn’t have time and money to recognise the talent of his own city girl. I have been struggling for funds owing to my humble background. My father is a labourer and mother a housewife doing odd jobs like sewing clothes. We have been living in a rented flat. What I demanded from the CM was just funds to prepare for the Asiad. What I got were empty promises. If I haven’t won a gold at the Asiad, it’s because of the Delhi government,” Divya told TOI.

Divya said she had won more than 50 medals while representing Delhi. It was due to Delhi government’s ‘apathy’ that she started representing Uttar Pradesh.

“I didn’t have any other choice. Look at the governments of other states. In Haryana, athletes get Rs 3 crore for winning gold at the CWG and Asiad. Even for bronze, they get nothing less than Rs 1 crore. Odisha government gave Dutee Chand Rs 3 crore for her two silvers. Even UP is offering its Asiad gold medal winners Rs 50 lakh. What has the Delhi government given me?” she asked.

Divya said she was raising the issue for the sake of other upcoming wrestlers. “This fight is not about me. It is for all those women wrestlers from Delhi who have suffered at the hands of Delhi government. This fight is about making their future bright so they don’t suffer this official apathy,” she said.

Incidents like these are daily occurances. Culprits will be out in a couple of days on bail. Family of the murdered girl will be pressurised , shamed amd forced to move out.

Police will be bribed to go slow and soft on the criminals.

If at all,  some token punishment may be awarded to the arsonists. No deterrence to criminals in the society.

Meerut girl set on fire by stalkers dies


Over a fortnight after six youths barged into a teenager’s house in Meerut’s Sardhana town and set her on fire after she refused to speak to one of them over phone, the 14-year-old girl succumbed to her injuries at a hospital in Delhi on Tuesday.

On August 17, the stalkers had poured kerosene on the girl and set her on fire. With over 70% burn injuries, she was referred to Safdarjung Hospital.

There was palpable tension in the air of Sardhana as the news of her death arrived. Heavy police forces were deployed both at the burning ghat and outside the houses of the accused.

According to the complaint filed by the girl’s family, she was being harassed by the youths. They used to follow her daily on the way to tuition classes. On August 17, one of them allegedly gave her a mobile phone, saying that he would call her. The girl, however, told her parents about it and the youth was scolded when he called. While five were arrested by the Meerut police, one of the accused surrendered in a court on petty charges of illicit liquor. TNN

National Green Tribunal

What have we done to get such Judgements?



Mid-air poop order has made us a laughing stock: DGCA to NGT

New Delhi:

Days after the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) issued a circular stating that dumping excreta from a flying airplane would attract a fine of Rs 50,000, the aviation regulator on Tuesday told the National Green Tribunal (NGT) that it was impossible to dump human waste midair from aircraft toilets.

The DGCA told a bench headed by NGT chairperson Justice Adarsh Kumar Goel that it has become a “laughing stock” due to this order and sought a stay and review of its order directing the aviation regulator to issue a circular to all airlines operating at the Indira Gandhi International (IGI) airport.

The aviation regulator informed the bench, also comprising Justice Jawad Rahim, that there is a designated place for emptying the waste tank and it cannot open it mid-air.

The bench, however, refused to stay its order and said it would consider the matter on the next date of hearing. PTI


What is the most clever life hack you’ve learned?

Saw this on Quora. Sharing with Permission from Ayushi Patel.

  1. When shopping online, always read the 1-star reviews first.

  2. If you see a car accident call the police. It may seem obvious but many believe that someone else will do it.

  3. Don’t right-click-correct incorrectly spelled words. Delete the entire word then re-type it correctly. Do this to train yourself to spell words right the first time instead of relying on spell-check.

  4. When having dinner at someone’s house, intentionally take smaller portions than you normally would. If you don’t like the meal you’ll be glad you don’t have too much, and if you do like it you can flatter the host by asking for more.

  5. Before/While watching a TV show or movie try not to look at reviews.

  6. Before booking a vacation online, call the booking agency directly and ask any question. They will likely give you a discount for calling.

  7. Apply for a loan a day or two after your normal pay day.

  8. If you suspect you’ve been given a wrong number, read it back to them incorrectly. If they correct it chances are you were given the correct number in the first place.

  9. Put some tape on the cables of expensive electronics like headphones. If it looks like it’s been repaired badly it’s less likely to get stolen.

  10. Got bored from one of your favorite songs? Try listening to a cover version. There’s enough difference to feel refreshing while still being faithful to the original.

  11. Use the three second rule to determine a safe distance while following another vehicle. Once the lead vehicle passes a stationary object, allow three seconds before passing the same object. This works at all speeds.

  12. Turn your lights on in inclement weather. It’s not for you to be able to see; it’s so other drivers can see you.

  13. When finishing up at a coffee shop/restaurant, don’t shove your used napkin into your “empty” cup. Some poor soul will have to personally dig to remove the back-wash infested mush that is now glued to the bottom.

  14. When parking at a large store, don’t prioritize a spot close to the entrance. Prioritize a spot close to a cart return, that’s what you will care about when you’re leaving.

  15. If you have problems power napping for the right amount of time, hold something in your hand. When it falls, it’s time to wake up.

  16. Pour your coffee/Tea from a height of several inches (or more). It will introduce more oxygen into solution and tangibly improve the taste.

  17. Take a few basic 1st aid courses. You never know when you’ll have to save a life!

  18. If a friend /family member asks you a seemingly simple question, consider that they may just want to spend more time with you.

  19. If you’re going on vacation find a whole new playlist to listen to with new songs only. This way when you play it back later you can vividly reminisce about your time there in the future.

  20. If you’re opening a box with a large, heavy item such as a TV, get it out by opening the bottom, setting it down, and simply lifting up the box.

  21. If you find yourself having to write or type someone’s name you should know, instead of asking them their name, ask them how to spell it instead, that way you may be able to avoid offending the person.

  22. Trying to take a clear picture? Hold your breath right before you take the shot.

  23. If you can make an excuse to buy it, you can also make an excuse to not buy it.

  24. If something cost 100 and it’s on sale for 75, and you decide to buy it, you did not save 25. You spent 75!

  25. On most calculators the C button means clear and CE means Clear Entry. The C will clear all input while CE clears the most recent entry, so if you make a mistake in a long computation you don’t need to start all over again.

  26. When drafting an email, don’t add contacts to the draft until you are satisfied with its contents.

  27. If you are excited for a movie, don’t watch the trailer.

  28. You want to know your true friends? Stop reaching out to people for a while.

  29. If you need to take your vehicle in to a mechanic, clean your car first. They will treat your car better than if it’s all destroyed inside.

  30. If you have some spare time, look up volunteering opportunities near you to meet new friends and branch out in your community.

  31. If you like cookies and free stuff, donate blood. You get a free cookie!!

  32. If you get good service, tell the manager the name of who served you and how they did. It takes little time and you make everyone’s day.

  33. Go back and re-read technical manuals for something you are passionate about, every year or so. It’s amazing what new ideas you learn with a more experienced perspective.

  34. If you really want to understand something, the best way is to try and explain it to someone else.

  35. Whenever you are having a horrible day, write a letter to a grandparent or write a thank you note to someone. It’s hard to be upset and grateful at the same time.

  36. Want cheap textbooks? Look for an ‘International Edition’ online for a fraction of the price.

  37. If you think someone is lying about their age, ask them what year they are born in. If they are lying, they’ll have to do the math, but if they’re telling the truth, they’ll know it instantly.

  38. If you should clean the house, but you’re feeling to lazy to do so – invite some friends over!

Bengal: Open communalisation

Australian Catholic Church rejects compulsory abuse reporting

Child abuse in the Catholic Church organisations has been in the news around the world. At long last, Catholic Church under Pope Francis has acknowledged the existing problem. 

Hopefully it will allow honest introspection within the catholic community and stop the abuse of children and orphans in its homes.


Australian Catholic Church rejects compulsory abuse reporting

Authorities in Australia want to force priests to report abuse but Church says seal of confession should not be broken.

The Australian Catholic Church has rejected a recommendation to implement laws forcing priests and other members of the Church to report sexual abuse.

The Australian Catholic Bishops Conference (ACBC), the country’s top Catholic body, said on Friday it will not break the seal of confession, one of the core beliefs of the Catholic faith, even if that means the clergy might face criminal charges.

“First of all, the seal is a non-negotiable of our religious life, and it embodies a particular understanding of the believer and God,” ACBC President Archbishop Mark Coleridge said at a press conference.

“We don’t believe it will make children safer, and in certain cases we think it could make children less safe. Any suggestion that a perpetrator may, in fact, confess is removed all but certainly by the imposition of a law such as this,” he added, saying that most confessions are done anonymously and do not go into much detail.

Australian archbishop avoids prison after concealing child abuse

About seven percent of Australian priests were accused of sexual abuse between 1950 and 2011, according to a five-year-long inquiry by Australian authorities into the large-scale abuse by members of the Catholic Church.

The inquiry added that more than 4,400 people reported abuse, with the average age of the victim being almost 11 for girls and almost 12 for boys.

The Catholic Church is trying to deal with thousands of cases of sexual abuse around the world.

More than 1,000 children were molested by hundreds of Roman Catholic priests in six dioceses just in the US state of Pennsylvania alone.

Last week, Pope Francis addressed victims of sexual abuse in Ireland, saying he felt shame over the Catholic Church’s failure to prevent sexual abuse by members of the clergy. He also referred to abusers as “repugnant”.

In Australia, one state and a territory have introduced laws making it a crime for priests to fail to report abuse heard in the confessional after the inquiry released its findings.

“All delicts relating to child sexual abuse should be articulated as canonical crimes against the child, not as moral failings or as breaches of the ‘special obligation’ of clerics and religious to observe celibacy,” the ACBC wrote in its report.


Pope tells Ireland he feels ‘pain, shame’ over sex abuse scandal

Last month, an Australian archbishop was sentenced to a year in detention for concealing past sexual abuse, becoming the highest-ranking Catholic clergyman to face confinement for a cover-up.
