Parliament today passed a stringent legislation prescribing death penalty to those convicted of raping girls below the age of 12 years and making the law against such sexual offences harsher. The Bill replaces the Criminal Law (Amendment) Ordinance promulgated on April 21, following an outcry over the rape and murder of a minor girl in Kathua in Jammu and Kashmir and the rape of another woman at Unnao in Uttar Pradesh. The Criminal Law (Amendment) Bill 2018, which was passed in the Lok Sabha on July 30, was approved by a voice vote in the Upper House. While replying to a debate in the Rajya Sabha, Minister of State for Home Affairs Kiren Rijiju assured the House that the concerns and issues raised by the members would be looked into by the government, even as he did not agree with the demand of several MPs to send the bill to a Select Committee for scrutiny.

Former chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir and PDP president Mehbooba Mufti on Monday cautioned the Centre against tinkering with the state's special status under Article 370, saying "it is a bridge between the state and Union", and any attempt to break it will be disastrous.

Thousands of apps let abusive people easily spy on partners 26.7.2018 DNA: Money
Thousands of apps that enable abusive people to secretly spy on their partner are simple to install and marketed through a murky web of online advertising, blogs and videos explaining how to use them for illegal purposes, scientists including one of Indian origin have found. The apps not only include traditional spyware but software intended for more benign uses, such as finding phones or keeping track of children - making it all but impossible to use existing anti-spyware tools to protect against them. Some apps were actively marketed to abusers, including one with a webpage titled "Mobile Spy App for Personal Catch Cheating Spouses" and an image of a man gripping the arm of a woman with scratches on her face. However, apps not overtly aimed at abusers, whose official websites refer only to uses like employee or child tracking, were found to use advertising search terms such as "track my  girlfriend" or "how to catch a cheating spouse with his cell phone." "Thousands of these apps are available in the ...

Thai rescue: Elon Musk apologises to British caver for 'pedo' remark 18.7.2018 DNA: Wide Angle
 Elon Musk has apologised for calling a British caver who helped rescue 12 Thai boys from a cave a "pedo". Tesla CEO Musk issued the apology today to Vernon Unsworth, who worked on the rescue of the "Wild Boars" football team and had dismissed Musk's plan to recover the trapped group using a miniature submarine. "(H)is actions against me do not justify my actions against him, and for that I apologize to Mr Unsworth and to the companies I represent as leader," Musk wrote on Twitter. "The fault is mine and mine alone." "Pedo" is short for paedophile.  Earlier he was considering taking legal action against Tesla boss Elon Musk after the entrepreneur called him a ‘pedo’ on social media. Musk had launched the Twitter rant against Briton Vernon Unsworth after the cave expert slammed his offer of a miniature submarine to extract the footballers from the Tham Luang cave as a "PR stunt". Last week, a group of 12 football players and their coach were rescued by an international team of divers through a narrow ...

Briton who was part of rescue team that rescued Thai boys may take legal action against Elon Musk for calling him 'Pedo' 16.7.2018 DNA: Urban Tales
One of the cavers, who was part of the rescue team that pulled out 12 boys from a cave in Thailand is considering taking legal action against Tesla boss Elon Musk after the entrepreneur called him a ‘pedo’ on social media. Pedo is short for paedophile.  Musk had launched the Twitter rant against Briton Vernon Unsworth after the cave expert slammed his offer of a miniature submarine to extract the footballers from the Tham Luang cave as a "PR stunt". Last week, a group of 12 football players and their coach were rescued by an international team of divers through a narrow network of twisting, flooded tunnels. According to Unsworth, who provided mapping knowledge of the cave to rescuers, said Musk's prototype would have had ‘absolutely no chance of working’. “He can stick the submarine where it hurts,” Unsworth had said in an interview. Musk responded Sunday in a bizarre series of tweets referring to Unsworth, without using his name, as "pedo guy". The tweets, however, were deleted later. The entrepreneur ...

Nirbhaya rapist-killers must hang, confirms Supreme Court 10.7.2018 DNA: Urban Tales
The Supreme Court on Monday rejected review petitions of Nirbhaya gang rape and murder convicts saying there was no error in the earlier verdict of the apex court awarding them the death penalty. The petitions had been filed by three of the four convicts – Mukesh Singh (31), Pawan Gupta (24) and Vinay Sharma (25).

No backlog of mercy petition with President; end nears for Nirbhaya rapist-killers 10.7.2018 DNA: Urban Tales
With no mercy petitions pending with President Ramnath Kovind, the fate of Nirbhaya convicts is likely to be sealed soon. While the convicts can move a curative petition in the Supreme Court before appealing for mercy to the President, it's rare for the top court to change their decision in such a case. The Supreme Court on Monday reaffirmed the death sentence to the four men for the gang rape and murder of a paramedic student in 2012, which came to be known as the Nirbhaya case, rejecting the review plea filed by three of them. Former President Pranab Mukherjee cleared all mercy petitions in his tenure. He commuted the death sentence of seven convicts in four different cases. In 30 cases, he rejected mercy petitions of 40 convicts, including 26/11 terrorist Ajmal Kasab and parliament attack convict Afzal Guru – both were hanged. Since assuming office last year, President Kovind has rejected one mercy plea in April this year. A total of 371 convicts were on death row by the end of 2017. The figure was ...
