The Women Who Said ‘Enough’ 23.8.2017 DNA: India
For the diminutive Shayara Bano, Tuesday was a day that would be etched in her memory forever, irrespective of which way it would have ended. But when the 5-member constitutional bench at the Supreme Court voted to set aside triple talaq, the 39-year-old heaved a sigh of relief.  “The first thing that crossed my mind was that I will now be able to meet my children,” said the soft-spoken Shayara. Ever since her husband, Allahabad-based property dealer Rizwan Ahmed, sent her a letter with ‘talaq’ written on it twice while she was at her mother’s place, she has not met her two children, Irfan, 14, and Muskan, 13.  Shayara, a resident of Kashipur, was married off to Rizwan in 2002. Theirs was a marriage that brought about unspeakable horrors for her. Dowry demands and torture was routine. “I don’t remember the number of abortions that I had to undergo,” she says.  In fact, when Rizwan sent her the letter to Shayara’s father on the pretext of sending some property letters, she was recuperating from the string ...

Senior Advocate Indira Jaisingh has sought compensation to the tune of Rs 10 lakh under the victim compensation scheme a day after the 10-year-old rape survivor gave birth to a baby girl. Jaising who is an amicus curiae in an ongoing petition, mentioned her plea before a bench of Justices Madan Lokur and Deepak Gupta who then issued notice to Chandigarh and the Centre. The apex court has sought replies from all concerned by August 22. Seeking compensation for the child, Jaising said that she was only a 10-year-old and cannot look after the child. Jaising referred to an apex court judgment delivered on Wednesday, where a destitute woman's plea for abortion was also turned down, and was awarded a compensation of Rs 10 lakh. "A ten-year-old mother cannot look after the child. Nothing has been paid to her so far," Jaising told the bench. Last month, acting on a medical board's advise, the top court had turned down the 10-year-old rape survivor's plea for an abortion who was already 32-weeks pregnant by ...

The Supreme Court on Friday flagged "issues" arising out of a law mandating doctors to disclose to authorities about a minor getting pregnant after rape and the parents opposing it.

10-yr-old Chandigarh rape survivor delivers a girl 18.8.2017 DNA: Money
A 10-year-old rape survivor in Chandigarh — refused permission by the Supreme Court in July to abort her 32-week pregnancy — delivered a baby on Thursday, but remained unaware of the new life that she has given birth to. "We told her that she was operated upon for a stone in her stomach. She is too young to understand," said doctors at the Government Medical College and Hospital (GMCH) in Chandigarh's Sector 32. Both the mother and child are healthy and stable, they said. The court had on July 29 denied her an abortion after doctors said it could be a threat to her life. She was 30-week pregnant when a family court rejected her plea for abortion on July 15. The girl had a C-section. "She is too young to bear labour pain and her pelvic bones are not strong enough to support a normal delivery," the doctors said. The survivor had also been operated for a heart ailment in the past and was on medication, which compounded the risks involved. The girl's family, including her labourer father, refused to see the ...

Doctors should be "absolutely careful" and "not overemphasise" the consent of guardians in deciding the plea to terminate pregnancy of a mentally retarded woman, the Supreme Court said. The court directed the Bihar government to pay Rs 10 lakh as compensation to the 35-year-old woman, who had to undergo tremendous mental torture due to the rape and the resultant pregnancy and had her plea to terminate the pregnancy rejected by the state. A bench headed by Justice Dipak Misra said state authorities should have been more equipped to assist the woman, especially since she decided to exercise her statutory right to terminate the pregnancy. More over, the child is likely to be HIV +ve, the judge mentioned. "That apart, as is seen, the state in a way contested the matter before the High Court," Justice Misra said. "That apart, as is seen, the state in a way contested the matter before the High Court," Justice Misra said. The court cited the Mental Healthcare Act, 2017 to point out that time was extremely ...
