Rights body tells J&K govt to compensate 'human shield' Farooq Ahmad Dar; Centre opposes 10.7.2017 DNA: Popular News
The Jammu and Kashmir human rights commission today directed the state government to pay a compensation of Rs 10 lakh to Farooq Ahmad Dar, who was used as a "human shield" by the Army against stone-pelters three months back. The central government, however, opposed any compensation to Dar, saying there should be no sympathy with stone-pelters. The compensation awarded to Dar was for the "humiliation, physical and psychiatric torture, stress, wrongful restraint and confinement" that he underwent when he was tied to the bonnet of an Army vehicle to ward off stone-pelters, the State Human Rights Commission (SHRC) said in its judgement. "I have no doubt in my mind that Farooq Ahmad was subjected to torture and humiliation, besides (being) wrongly confined," the judgement issued by SHRC chairperson Justice (retd) Bilal Nazki said. He observed that the action led to trauma, resulting in psychiatric stress "which may remain with him for the rest of his life". The commission asked the J&K government to comply ...

US student death: North Korea says it is the biggest victim after denying charges of torture 23.6.2017 DNA: Top News
North Korea today called itself the "biggest victim" in the death of an American student who was detained for more than a year and died days after being released in a coma. The North's official Korean Central News Agency denied that North Korea cruelly treated or tortured Otto Warmbier and accused the United States and South Korea of a smear campaign that insulted what it called its "humanitarian" treatment of him. The comments published by KCNA were North Korea's first reaction to Otto Warmbier's death in a US hospital Monday after it released him for what it called humanitarian reasons. Doctors at the hospital said Warmbier had suffered a severe neurological injury from an unknown cause. Relatives say they were told the 22-year-old University of Virginia student had been in a coma since shortly after he was sentenced to 15 years of hard labour in North Korea in March 2016. His family and others have blamed North Korea for his condition. Warmbier was accused of stealing a propaganda poster. Through ...

No tolerance for those involved in ragging incidents: Union HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar 29.5.2017 DNA: India
 There would be no tolerance for those involved in any ragging incidents and such students would not be allowed to continue their education, HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar said here today. The Union minister made the remarks at the launch of an anti-ragging mobile application which would help students file their complaints of ragging. "Those who are involved in ragging will not be tolerated and they will not be allowed to continue their education in that institution. At the same time they will be given severe penalty and punishment as per the law," Javadekar said. "As per my knowledge, in campuses a majority of senior students actually help guide their juniors and properly mentor them, but in a few cases ragging happens which needs to be completely eliminated. "Physical or mental torture of a new student is ragging which we won't allow, this is unacceptable and therefore, this app will become a handy tool for any student who goes through such experience," he added. The minister said earlier one had to ...
