Man kills wife, her mother 'to hide his HIV status' 30.4.2017 deccanherald.com
A 27-year-old man is suspected to have killed his pregnant wife and her mother so as to cover up the fact that he was HIV-positive, police said. The horrific murders happened in Car Street in Doddaballapur town, about 40 km north of Bengaluru, on Saturday night. Chandrashekhar, a weaver by profession, wanted his wife, Chandrakala (23), to go for abortion as he feared he would be exposed if she delivered the baby. His in-laws weren't aware that he was suffering from the life-threatening disease. Chandrashekhar often fought with his wife and in-laws ever since she tested positive for pregnancy three weeks ago. His wife opposed the idea of abortion tooth and nail, and her mother, Meenakshamma (45), backed her, P V Reddy, the inspector of Doddaballapur Town police station, told DH. When Chandrashekhar didn't get his way, he decided to kill his wife and hatched a plan. On Saturday afternoon, he sent her to her mother's house. He knew the routine of his father-in-law, Narayanappa, who works at a restaurant and ...

Triple talaq should go, my govt will end practice: PM 30.4.2017 DNA: Top News
Notwithstanding Prime Minister Narendra Modi's appeal to the Muslim community to not view triple talaq from a "political perspective", several community leaders said that they favoured leaving the issue to introspection within the community, and that the matter should reach a consensus internally. He said that that his government will end the problem. However, there were a few, including Shayara Bano, the woman who appealed to the Supreme Court (SC) in 2016 to declare triple talaq unconstitutional, who praised the PM. Modi was speaking at the International Basava Convention in Vigyan Bhavan on the occasion of the 883rd birth anniversary of the 12th century Kannada philosopher Basaveshwara. He released a digital version of the scholar's vachanas of over 2,500 sermons in 23 languages. This is the second time this month that Modi has stirred the issue. He spoke about it in the BJP's executive meet in Bhubaneshwar earlier. "I appeal to you not to view the triple talaq issue from a political perspective. Come ...

FDA raid finds abortion kits in Vikhroli hospital 28.4.2017 DNA: Wide Angle
In an incident that is eerily similar to the Sangli case, the officials of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) found 11 medical termination of pregnancy (MTP) kits following a raid at a small nondescript hospital in Vikroli East. The Ruby Medical Centre was being run by an ayurvedic doctor Sunita Chavan, who is now absconding. "We also found 15 used MTP kits at the centre. The doctor was not present while the raid was carried out," said Dr Harshdeep Kamble, FDA Commissioner. The FDA received a tip-off around five days back following which they acted on information that patients were being operated by unqualified doctors. There were four ongoing surgical procedures when the raid was carried out. "We have also found some medicines which might be spurious. We have asked that the doctors' license be cancelled," said Dr Kamble. FDA also sought help from the Chembur police. Officials also found medication which has been taken into custody and is being investigated. The doctor has been booked under the Drugs ...
