A Chandigarh court sentenced two men, guilty of repeatedly raping their ten-year-old niece, to life imprisonment. Kul Bahadur and his younger brother Shankar were arrested after the victim alleged she was raped by the two repeatedly over a period of an year. The victim delivered a girl on August 17.

DNA THEME: Bride & prejudice... How SC ruling can help 30.10.2017 DNA: Recent Columns
The recent Supreme Court ruling that sex with a minor wife amounts to rape, could be a game changer for underage girls aged between 0 and 19 years in the state who are already mothers. This judgment will indisputably correct the view that early marriage is a serious infringement of child rights. According to the 2011 Census, 31.6 per cent girls in Rajasthan were married off before the age of 18. A more recent survey by the National Family Health Survey (NFHS-4) 2015-16 pointed to an even higher number, with 35.4 per cent of girls aged between 20 and 24 years got married off before attaining the legal age. Hook or by crook, this progressive decision will not only break the social orthodoxy but will also help in improving the health scenario of the state. Maternal mortality and infant mortality rates are closely linked to early marriages. A UNICEF study revealed that early marriage hinders educational attainment, which then leads to poor maternal health and higher infant mortality rates. Child-bearing at a ...

Rohingya crisis: Situation 'spinning out of control', say aid officials carrying out rescue work 26.10.2017 DNA: Popular News
A combination of escalating violence, worsening health and poor access to conflict zones in Myanmar's Rakhine state is fueling a humanitarian crisis that is "spinning out of control", senior aid officials said on Thursday. "We've seen a massive increase in violence not just between armed actors but also civilians, which is tearing families apart and leaving people to feel completely abandoned and disenfranchised," Peter Maurer, president of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) told the Thomson Reuters Foundation. More than 600,000 Rohingya Muslims have crossed the border to neighbouring Bangladesh since Aug. 25, when coordinated Rohingya insurgent attacks on security posts sparked a ferocious counter-offensive by the Myanmar army. The United Nations says killings, arson and rape carried out by troops and ethnic Rakhine Buddhist mobs amount to a campaign of ethnic cleansing against the Rohingya. "I worry that this continued context of fear and violence is spinning out of control and will ...
