Female dragonflies fake sudden death to avoid male advances 28.4.2017 DNA: Money
Scientists from the University of Zurich in Switzerland have discovered that female dragonflies drop out of the sky and pretend to be dead to avoid male advances. As per reports in The New Scientist, Rassim Khelifa, who made the discovery, watched a female crash-dive to the ground while being pursued by a male. The female then lay motionless on her back. Her suitor soon flew away, and the female took off once the coast was clear. The report adds that female moorland hawkers are vulnerable to harassment when they lay their eggs since, unlike some other dragonflies, they aren’t guarded by their male mates. A single sexual encounter with another male is enough to fertilise all eggs and copulating again could damage their reproductive tract. Khelifa found that the females often retreat to dense vegetation near ponds at this time, probably to hide. And they often act dramatically when they emerge. Few animals have been caught feigning death to trick suitors. The behaviour has been seen in a species of spider ...

SC rejects Centre's plea to recall verdict on probe into fake encounters in Manipur 27.4.2017 DNA: Popular News
The Supreme Court has dismissed the Centre's curative petition seeking a recall of its verdict giving police the liberty to probe the role of armed forces in alleged encounter cases in areas where AFSPA is in force. "The prayer for hearing the curative petition in open court is rejected," a bench headed by Chief Justice J S Khehar said in its order passed yesterday during in-chamber proceedings in which lawyers do not participate. "We have gone through the curative petition and the relevant documents. In our opinion, no case is made out within the parameters indicated in the decision of this court... Hence, the curative petition is dismissed," the bench, also comprising Justices Dipak Misra, J Chelameswar, Madan B Lokur and U U Lalit, said. The Centre had moved the apex court on April 12 seeking recall of its verdict in the alleged extra-judicial killings case in Manipur, saying it has "negated" the protection available to the armed forces under the Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA) during ...

Lakhan Bhaiya case: HC pulls up cops 21.4.2017 DNA: Money
The Bombay High Court on Friday directed the police to explain what led to the escape of a convict in the 'fake encounter' case of alleged gangster Ramnarayan Gupta. The court also rapped the police for not taking measures to trace the convict so far. A division bench of Justice Ranjit More and Justice Anuja Prabhudessai directed Vinayak Deshmukh, Deputy Commissioner of Police (zone X), who was present in court, to ascertain the responsibility of the people behind the escape of Shailandra Pandey. The bench observed, "It appears that police officials are hand in glove with Pandey." The convict was sentenced to life imprisonment but was granted parole for a month on November 2, 2013. Pandey, however, got the parole extended by a few days on the pretext of an "urgent need" to get admitted to a hospital for eye treatment. However, he escaped from the hospital. The Andheri police registered an FIR on February 21, 2014, after the jail authorities informed it that Pandey had jumped parole, but failed to do ...

Judicial probes on Manipur encounters biased: Army to SC 19.4.2017 deccanherald.com
A day after it was rapped by the Supreme Court for remaining silent over rape and murder charges against its personnel in Manipur, the Army today said the judicial probes conducted into these charges were "biased" and slanted against them due to local factors. It alleged that the district judges, who were locals, had conducted the judicial inquiries into the alleged killings and local factors came in the way of the probe reports which went against the armed forces. "The problem in every case is that the slant of judicial inquiry was against us. Judicial inquiries which have been done by a district judge proceeded against us by the virtue of their local apprehensions or local positions. Armys job is not to kill its own people," Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi told a bench of Justices M B Lokur and U U Lalit. Citing an example, Rohatgi said if the Army goes after two terrorists holed up in a civilian area and in cross-fire some people are killed, then it cannot be held guilty for these casualties. "We are ...

Do you have rapists in uniform? Supreme Court asks Army 19.4.2017 DNA: Urban Tales
Only an independent investigation by a Special Investigation Team (SIT) will lend credibility to the proceedings in the "extra-judicial killings by the security forces" in Manipur, said a report filed by Amicus Curiae Menaka Guruswamy to the Supreme Court on Tuesday. Making a strong case for a trial by a special court constituted by the SC, it pointed out the "delayed justice" and "gross misuse" of the Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA) in the state. Guruswamy's report is highly significant because, if implemented, it will be the first time that senior police officers will investigate excesses of the armed forces in any part of the country. Guruswamy's report, compiled from the proceedings of 265 cases of extra-judicial killings in Manipur, looked at evidence from high court judgments, judicial inquiries, and NHRC reports, noting that monetary compensation in several cases signified the state's apathy and ensured that the killings continued unabated. Guruswamy added that Manipur submitted 18 reports ...

Why were you silent over allegations of rape: SC asks Army 18.4.2017 deccanherald.com
The Supreme Court today rapped the Army asking why it had maintained silence over allegations of rape and murder against its personnel in Manipur and questioned the state government for not proceeding with these cases against them. The apex court asked the Manipur government to explain whether it was a "sheer helplesness" on their part or a "tacit understanding" that they would not proceed against the Army personnel despite there being serious allegations of rape and murder against them. "You may have two alleged rapists. Why you have kept quiet," a bench of Justices Madan B Lokur and U U Lalit asked Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi, who was appearing for the Army and the Assam Rifles. Responding to the query, the Attorney General said, "these are allegations only. The question is whether rape was committed by the Army personnel". The court posed this query to Rohatgi after it was told that there were allegations against two Army personnel that they had raped a 15-year-old girl in 2003 following which she ...
