Minor’s Consent Is “No Consent In Eyes Of Law” In Rape Cases

A Thane court has observed that a minor’s consent is “no consent in the eyes of law” (Representational)


A court in Maharashtra’s Thane has observed that a minor’s consent is “no consent in the eyes of law”, while awarding seven years’ rigorous imprisonment to a 31-year-old man for raping a teen girl in 2015.

District Judge PP Jadhav, in his order issued on September 12, also sentenced the accused, Devendra Gupta, to one-year rigorous imprisonment for house trespass.

Both the sentences will run concurrently, the court said.

According to the prosecution, the incident took place on October 2, 2015 when the survivor, then aged 16 years and studying in Class 11, was alone at her home in Thane’s Kajuwadi locality as her parents and brother had gone out.

While the girl was cooking food, the accused, a resident of the same locality, sneaked into the house, latched the door, gagged the girl and raped her.

When the survivor’s mother knocked on the door, the accused became scared and tried to hide himself in the house.

The survivor opened the door and narrated the incident to her mother. In the meantime, their neighbours also gathered and caught hold of the accused and thrashed him, but he managed to escape, the prosecution said.

The survivor, along with her parents, then went to the Vartak Nagar police station and filed a complaint against the accused who was subsequently arrested, the prosecution said.

Judge Jadhav said it has come to light that even prior to this incident, the accused had sexual intercourse with the minor girl, who was unaware of the consequences.

“Under such circumstances, considering the age of the victim, her consent is no consent in the eyes of law,” the judge observed.

It is clear that the accused entered the survivor’s house with an ulterior motive and sexually assaulted her, he said, while pronouncing him guilty on charges of rape and house trespass, and relevant provisions of the Protection of Children From Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act.

The court also imposed a fine of Rs 15,000 on the accused.

12-Year-Old Girl Dies Of Injuries After Two Minors Raped In Pune

The 12-year-old girl being treated at a hospital, went into coma and died of injuries from the assault


Two minor girls were allegedly raped by a man and a 17-year-old boy in Pune on Sunday. One of the girls died of injuries inflicted during the assault days later, a police official said today.

The two girls, both around 12 years’ old and residents of the same locality, went to a temple near their home in Pune’s Hinjawadi area on Sunday afternoon, he said.

The two accused, who also live in the same locality, lured the girls by offering them chocolates. They then took the girls to an isolated area where they allegedly raped them, the official at Hinjawadi Police Station said.

The two accused then threatened the girls with dire consequences if they revealed the incident to anyone, he said.

At first, the girls did not inform their parents about the incident. However, one of them complained of severe pain and weakness, following which her parents took her to a hospital, where doctors found out that she was traumatised, he said.

The doctors then informed the police, who approached the girl’s family in the hospital on Tuesday, but the girl was not in a condition to speak, the official said. Her family members told police that one more girl from their neighbourhood was with her on Sunday.

“When we questioned the other girl, she narrated the entire incident,” the official said. Based on her statement, a case was registered against the two accused, one of whom has been identified as 22-year-old Ganesh Nikam, he said.

The girl who was undergoing treatment at the government hospital in Pune slipped into coma and died of the injuries inflicted on her. She died on Wednesday, he said.

“We are waiting for the postmortem report to ascertain the exact cause of the death and accordingly, relevant sections will be added in the case,” he said.

Police have arrested Ganesh Nikam and detained the other boy accused in the case, the official said.

Nikam will be produced in a court today and the minor boy will be produced before the Juvenile Justice Board, he said.

The accused have been booked under sections 376 (rape) and 363 (kidnapping) of the Indian Penal Code, and relevant provisions of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act, he added.

The Madhya Pradesh government will ensure that criminals involved in the rape of minor girls get death penalty, Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has said.

The move comes after a spurt in crimes against minors in the state.

“Chouhan has directed the authorities concerned to ensure capital punishment for those involved in raping minor girls,” a public relations department official said today.

The chief minister had yesterday held a meeting to review the law and order situation in the state.

Mr Chouhan had praised the police for swift action in the case of a nine-year-old girl’s rape in Sagar district where the convict was awarded death sentence within 46 days of the incident.

The crime was committed on May 21 this year and charges were framed last week. On July 7, a court at Rehli in Sagar district awarded death sentence to the 40-year-old accused.Chouhan also asked the officials to follow the case in higher courts for ensuring speedy trial and said that he would himself monitor such cases every fortnight.

A similar case that shook the entire state was the gangrape and attempted murder of an eight-year-old girl in the state’s Mandsaur district on June 26.

The victim suffered severe injuries to her neck, face, head and private parts in the incident, and is being treated at the state-run Maharaja Yeshwantrao Hospital in Indore.

Both the accused in the case have been arrested and the police have filed a charge sheet against them.

Minors, Adult Women Rescued From Suspect Guest House In Kolkata’s Upmarket Salt Lake City

Six arrested persons are likely to be charged with immoral trafficking amongst other crimes

Kolkata:  Two minor girls and four other women were rescued in Kolkata from a guest house from where a sex trade was being run. The Green Shelter Guest House in CL Block in the upmarket Salt Lake area has been around for a few months.   

Acting on a tip off, the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) conducted a raid on Thursday and arrested six people, including a woman who is suspected to be a trafficker.

A case was registered at the Bidhannagar East police station. The six persons arrested are likely to be charged with immoral trafficking, among other crimes.  

Sources had informed police that minor girls were being forced into prostitution at the guest house. Inspector Subhash Jana is leading the investigation.

According to sources, many such suspect guest houses are running in mostly residential township of Salt Lake but residents are wary complaining because they lack concrete evidence of sex trade or trafficking.

But it is an issue of growing concern. Some small ‘madhuchakra‘ or sex trade rackets have been busted in the past but Thursday’s was the biggest in recent times.

Among those arrested, 37-year-old Ms Krishna Debnath, the ‘guest house manager’, her deputy Sandip Mishra and four other employees Babu Sona Majhi, Tanmoy Saha, Raju Das and Tuhin Banerjee.

Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah Minors Run Away to meet Jethalal

नई दिल्ली: ‘तारक मेहता का उल्टा चश्मा’ बच्चों और बड़ों सभी में बहुत ही लोकप्रिय है जो मनोरंजन के साथ-साथ सामजिक मैसेज भी अपने दर्शकों तक पहुंचता है. पर दो छोटे बच्चे किसी तरह काम करके थोड़े पैसे कमा कर अकेले ही राजस्थान से मुंबई भाग कर आ गए क्योंकि वे अपने चहेते कलाकार जेठालाल गाड़ा यानि दिलीप जोशी से मिलना चाहते थे. ये उनका भाग्य था कि किसी अच्छे आदमी ने उनको पुलिस स्टेशन पहुंचा दिया और अब वे दोनों अपने अभिभावकों के साथ अपने शहर वापिस भी जा चुके हैं. पर उनकी कहानी ने शो के निर्माता और कलाकारों दोनों को ही डरा दिया. क्या होता अगर वे किसी गलत व्यक्ति के हाथ पड़ जाते? इसीलिए सभी ने यह निर्णय लिया कि उनकी दिलीप जोशी से मिलने की इच्छा पूरी न की जाए वरना शायद बहुत सारे अलग-अलग शो के छोटे छोटे फैंस अपने अपने चहेते कलाकार से मिलने के लिए ये रास्ता अपनाना शुरू कर  देंगे. 

Taarak Mehta: जेठालाल की दुकान में हुई चोरी, तिजोरी से लेकर सामान चट

दिलीप जोशी ने कहा, “ये सुन कर कि दो छोटे लड़के राजस्थान से मुंबई तक अकेले भाग कर सिर्फ इसलिए आए हैं क्योंकि वे मुझसे मिलना चाहते थे, मुझे उनके लिए बहुत डर लगा. जब दर्शकों से इतना प्यार मिलता है तो बहुत गर्व और खुशी होती है पर अपने चहेते कलाकार से मिलने के लिए घर से भाग कर मुंबई आना न तो सही है और न ही सुरक्षित. उनकी किस्मत अच्छी थी कि उन्हें एक सही इंसान मिला जो उनको पुलिस के पास ले गया. मैं अपने सभी चाहने वालों छोटे फैंस से ये प्रार्थना करता हूं कि उन्हें अपने माता-पिता की छत्रछाया में ही रहना चाहिए. मैं उन दोनों को अपना स्नेह और बेस्ट विशेस भेजना चाहता हूं.” 


Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah: बबीता या पोपटलाल? किसके यहां खायेगा खाना जेठालाल?

शो के निर्माता असित कुमार मोदी ने कहा, “दर्शकों का इतना प्यार अपने साथ बहुत जिम्मेदारी भी लाता है. मैं अपने शो के फैंस से यही प्रार्थना करूंगा कि कोई इतना  जोखिम भरा कदम न ले. हम सभी सिद्धांतों और अनुशासन में विश्वास रखते हैं और अपने शो में भी इसका निर्वाह करते हैं. हम ईश्वर का धन्यवाद करते हैं कि वे सही सलामत अपने अभिभावकों तक पहुंच गए हैं.”

खास बातें

  1. बच्चों से जबरदस्ती चोरी करवाते थे आरोपी
  2. मोटी कमाई का देते थे प्रलोभन
  3. रेलवे और मेट्रो स्टेशन पर करते थे चोरी

When Aman’s clothes got wet and he was drying those in front of a machine, Kashmir Singh got angry on noticing him do so. He put a pressure air pipe in the private parts of Aman, which led to deterioration of his medical condition, resulting in his death.

A case under Section 304 of the IPC (culpable homicide not amounting to murder) and the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act was registered against Singh at Dugri police station.
