NEW DELHI: A Delhi court has sentenced a man to two years in jail for

SRINAGAR: The Jammu & Kashmir government on Sunday began
investigations into the alleged killing of a 65-year-old woman by two

Gadool village in Kokernag late on Saturday.

3] 3-year-old raped, killed in Sambalpur

SAMBALPUR: A three-year-old girl was found raped and murdered in
Sambalpur district on Sunday. The incident came on the heels of a
similar crime against a seven-year-old in September and the ninth rape
of minor girls in the district within two months.

Police said the girl had been missing from her home at a village in
Sambalpur district’s Thelkolei police station area since Saturday.
After failing to find her, the girl’s father had lodged a missing
report with police the same day.

4] Confronted for staring, youth slashes girl’s face

MUMBAI: A youth repeatedly slashed the face of a teenaged girl when
she objected to him ogling her. The attack had disfigured the girl’s
face and her family was too poor to afford a plastic surgery to
restore her looks, the police said.

Arrested on Sunday, the accused, Waris Qureshi, has been booked for
criminal intimidation and causing grievous hurt by dangerous weapons.

The incident occurred at Juhu Galli in Andheri (W) on Saturday when
the victim—who stayed in Juhu Galli and worked at an imitation
jewellery unit—went to a public telephone booth to make a call. While
on phone, she reportedly noticed Qureshi standing nearby and staring
at her. When she confronted him, the youth apparently denied ogling
her. Following an altercation, the girl went back to the phone. As she
was about to leave, Qureshi took out a blade and slashed her face
several times.

5] 52-year-old man commits suicide after raping two

NAGPUR: A 52-year-old security guard committed suicide after he was
booked for raping a minor and a mentally-challenged woman on Saturday.

Deceased Vinayak Thakre’s victims were his neighbours. One is 15 years
old while the other is 18.

The incident shocked residents of Vaibhav Nagar in MIDC and left the
three families devastated. Thakre has a married daughter and a son who
is undergoing training with the state reserve police force (SRPF). The
widowed mothers of the victims do odd jobs to earn their daily bread.
