“No Means No, The Word ‘No’ Does Not Need Any Further Explanation : Himachal Pradesh HC Denies Bail To Man Accused Of Raping Minor

first_imgNews Updates”No Means No, The Word ‘No’ Does Not Need Any Further Explanation : Himachal Pradesh HC Denies Bail To Man Accused Of Raping Minor Nupur Thapliyal5 May 2021 9:24 PMShare This – x”NO MEANS NO- The simplest of sentences have become the most difficult for some men to understand” observed the Himachal Pradesh High Court on Wednesday while rejecting the bail application filed by a man accused of raping a 17 year old minor. A single judge bench comprising of Justice Anoop Chitkara observed thus: “No does not mean yes, it does not mean that the girl is shy, it does not mean that the girl is asking a man to convince her, it does not mean that he has to keep pursuing her. The word NO doesn’t need any further explanation or justification. It ends there, and the man has to stop. Be that as it may, the victim, in this case, said no to the accused when he started touching her, but he continued. It nowhere implies consent, or zeal and desire to explore and feel each other in romantic love.” Suresh Kumar was in custody since 18th December last year in relation to an FIR registered against him under sec. 376 of IPC and sec. 4 of POCSO Act. On 17th December 2020, Kumar picked up the minor girl, who was also his friend, in his vehicle by offering to drop her to her house. However, he changed the way and started touching her inappropriately. While the girl said NO to him, he threatened the victim that if she started to cry, he will forced himself upon her. Kumar then asked if she would marry him to which the victim responded as a no. Thereafter, he undressed her and had sexual intercourse with her. On reaching home, the victim narrated the whole incident to her mother, based on which the FIR was registered against Kumar by the Police. It was the case of the accused that the victim in her sec. 164 CrPC statement had stated that she was a friend of the accused and that her taking life in his vehicle further proved that the friendship was cordial as a result of which sexual intercourse took place with “active consent and without any force on her by the accused.”. Looking at the facts of the case, the Court reasoned that the fact that the victim revealed the unfortunate incident to her mother “prima facie points towards the genuineness of the incident.””She would have kept it discreet because, as per her version, no one had noticed them. If the sexual act was with her will, she would not have told anyone about the same and tried to conceal the same. The victim voluntarily narrated the incident to her mother, prima facie points towards the genuineness of the incident. It would be correct to say that it was courageous for the victim girl to talk about the unfortunate incident to her mother and later come forward and report the same with the police.” The Court observed at the outset. Furthermore, making strong observation that a NO MEANS NO, the Bench went ahead to observe that despite the victim saying no to the accused, he did not stop. “When the curriculum does not include the proper sex education, the children raised by such societies fail the women time and again.” The Court observed at the outset. Denying the relief of bail to the accused, the Judge interestingly expressed special gratitude to his Law Clerk-cum-Research Assistant, Ms. Apoorva Maheshwari, for an “excellent perspective” in this case.

Growth rates and ages of crabeater seals, Lobodon carcinophagus Jacquinot and Pucheran

first_img1The internal growth rings of the teeth of the crabeater seal (Lobodon carcinophagus) are described and the annual pattern established. 2By examination of near term foetuses, recently weaned pups, half‐year‐old, one‐year‐old and older animals the probable pattern of dentine deposition in the first year is established. The neonatal line is conspicuous; a line marking the time of weaning is present and also a line which probably represents the pup moult. The rate of dentine deposition is discussed and it is suggested that lactation extends over about five weeks. 3Using ages determined from the growth rings in the canine teeth, an average growth curve for body length has been constructed and is compared with earlier estimates of the rate of growth in the first few years. 4Evidence is given which suggests that the average neonatal length is 45 in. The sizes subsequently attained by the two sexes are similar, though the largest females tend to be slightly larger than the largest males. The mean body length of animals over twelve years old is 89 $2–36 in. 5The question of the age at sexual maturity is re‐examined and it is concluded that in the female sexual maturity is usually attained at an age of a few months over two years. 6The age distribution of the two samples of crabeater seals is discussed. The oldest animals in the material were 19 years old on the basis of dentine rings.last_img read more

An improved continuous flow analysis system for high-resolution field measurements on ice cores

first_imgContinuous flow analysis (CFA) is a well-established method to obtain information about impurity contents in ice cores as indicators of past changes in the climate system. A section of an ice core is continuously melted on a melter head supplying a sample water flow which is analyzed online. This provides high depth and time resolution of the ice core records and very efficient sample decontamination as only the inner part of the ice sample is analyzed. Here we present an improved CFA system which has been totally redesigned in view of a significantly enhanced overall efficiency and flexibility, signal quality, compactness, and ease of use. These are critical requirements especially for operations of CFA during field campaigns, e.g., in Antarctica or Greenland. Furthermore,a novel device to measure the total air content in the ice was developed. Subsequently, the air bubbles are now extracted continuously from the sample water flow for subsequent gas measurements.last_img read more

GALLERY: Belgian Navy destroys WWII mine

first_imgImages: Belgian NavyBelgian Navy’s Tripartite-class minehunter M924 Primula detected what it classified as a potential mine in the Gootebank area, about 14 nautical miles off the coast, February 25.The Navy ship thereafter used its Seafox-I ROV (remotely operated vehicle) and identified the sonar contact as a German LMB mine from World War II, which was estimated to have about one ton of explosive charge.The ship’s diving team subsequently detonated the mine using explosive charges.The LMB was a parachute non-contact mine used by the German forces in two modules. At 1.000 kg of explosive charge, the LMB (Luftmine B) the Belgian Navy found is lighter than the LMA (Luftmine A) which carried 1500 kg of explosive charge.M924 Primula is one of six minesweepers of the Belgian Navy. It was launched on December 20, 1990 at the Mercantile-Belyard shipyard in Rupelmonde, Belgium and christened on June 12, 1991.
