Death penalty in Shakti Mills gang-rape case 'savage sentence'

2 hours ago  
News / Mid-Day/ News  
The three men convicted in the Shakti Mills gangrape case told the Bombay High Court Thursday that the death penalty awarded to them by the sessions court in 2014 was a "savage sentence" and violated their right to life. The trio, through their lawyer, told the high court the death sentence violated their fundamental right to life guaranteed under Article 21 of the Constitution. The convicts, Vijay Jadhav, Kasim Bengali and Salim Ansari, represented by senior counsel Yug Chaudhry, argued that the death sentence awarded to them was wrong in law since there existed an "enormous difference between the harm caused" by them and "the punishment" mated out to them. Chaudhry made the arguments before a bench of Justices B P Dharamadhikari and Revati Mohite-Dere that began the final hearing Thursday on the writ petitions filed by the convicts challenging the death sentence awarded to them under section 376 (E) of the IPC. In April 2014, a sessions court here held five persons guilty in the Aug..

Beware of fraud UAE job offers, Indian nationals warned

News / Mid-Day/ News  
Consulate General of India in Dubai on Thursday asked job seekers to stay away from fraudulent job advertisements luring Indians to the UAE. In a statement, the Consulate said they have come across at least two fraud job offers made to Indian nationals in the name of UAE companies. The Consulate said "job seekers should not fall prey to such bogus job offers and in case of any doubt, may seek clarification from the Consulate by sending an email to Vice Consul (Labour) at labour.dubai@mea.gov.in and copy to cgoffice.dubai@mea.gov.in". The Consulate also attached a fake job offer for English Lecturer from a university in the UAE. The document details a lucrative salary and numerous perks, some of whom seem too good to be true. However, there was a catch in the letter, shared by the Consulate. It asks the candidate to "pay for visa and work permit processing, as a proof of readiness and seriousness to join our team", which is not the procedure as the employer is required to pay for th..

Pyongyang has told the United Nations that it is facing a shortfall of 1.4 million tons in food production this year, including crops of rice, wheat, potato and soybean.
