Man absolved of son's sodomy 5.11.2017 DNA: Top News
A Delhi court has acquitted a man accused of getting his nine-month-old child sodomised by transgenders. The court observed that the man was falsely implicated by his wife. Also, deciding to not initiate a criminal case of perjury against the woman, Additional Sessions Judge Ashwini Kumar Sarpal cautioned her. According to the prosecution, the woman registered a complaint on February 17 this year, claiming that she saw blood coming out of the anus of infant.

State's transgender policy favours repealing Section 377 26.10.2017 Deccan Herald - News
The Karnataka State Policy for Transgender-2017, which got the approval of the State Cabinet on Wednesday, envisages that all educational institutions have separate toilets for transgenders besides doing away with Section 377 of the IPC. Briefing reporters after the Cabinet meeting, Law Minister T B Jayachandra said a five-year time line has been set to implement the provisions of the policy, which seeks to end discrimination faced by sexual minorities. The policy recommends that all levels of formal education system should have reservations for transgender students and a column in application forms for transgender identity. Jayachandra said that the Cabinet discussed whether transgenders should be allowed to use both "men" and "women" toilets but several ministers felt separate toilets would be more suitable. Interestingly, under the head 'law and legal support,' the policy talks about building up public support to strike down Section 377 (which criminalises unnatural sexual activities). It also talks ...

Misuse of dowry laws takes new turn 1.10.2017 DNA: Mumbai
It is not uncommon for women to accuse their husbands of cruelty, while filing for divorce. In fact, the misuse of dowry laws is so common that a few years ago, the Supreme Court (SC) issued a set of guidelines to be complied with before arresting anyone in cases carrying a prison term of seven years or less. Instead of helping the matters, however, this led to the emergence of a disturbing trend. It is being seen that to bypass the conditions of the arrest, the women are now using the provisions under Sections 354 (molestation), 376 (rape), and 377 (unnatural sex) of the Indian penal Code (IPC) to "strengthen" their dowry case and reach a speedy settlement. According to criminal lawyer Tanveer Ahmed Mir, this trend has emerged after the Arnesh Kumar judgment, under which these guidelines were passed. In the July 2, 2014 judgment, the SC had observed: "Section 498 A (anti-dowry act) was introduced with avowed object to combat the menace of harassment to a woman at the hands of her husband and his ...
