Chandigarh: A 32-year-old man hanged himself from a ceiling fan in Haryana’s Sonepat district and live-streamed the suicide on his Facebook page, police said on Sunday.

Sonepat SP Ashwin Shenvi said Deepak scribbled the reason behind him taking the extreme step on the wall of his room before ending his life.

The man wrote that he was “facing threat to his life from a married woman in his neighbourhood and her alleged lover after he told her husband about their illicit relationship”.

Shenvi said Deepak live-streamed the suicide on his Facebook page. The woman and her paramour are employed with the Delhi Police, while her husband is part of the Haryana Police.

“Deepak wrote on the wall that the woman, an ASI, had an affair with an Inspector and after he came to know about it, he narrated everything to her husband,” the SP said. The man wrote that the woman and her alleged lover had threatened to kill him.

Sonepat City SHO Ajay Malik said Deepak’s family has filed a complaint based on which an FIR has been registered against the woman and her alleged lover on charges of abetting the suicide.

“A team of Sonepat Police is already in Delhi. The mobile phones of the accused are switched off and the duo are not at their place,” he said.

Meanwhile, a relative of the deceased alleged that the accused were harassing Deepak for the past six months. He claimed that Deepak also wrote a 60-page diary describing what exactly happened, but he could not muster enough courage to approach police.

“Yesterday, he called his sister, asking her to take care of their father. He then switched off his mobile phone. And then in the evening, he live-streamed the video on Facebook. “At the time of the incident, he was alone in his home as his parents had gone to Mathura and he had sent his wife and son to a relative’s house,” the relative said.

IITs to admit more women from 2018 to combat gender imbalance

IITs will admit more than 1,400 women from next year, the top admissions body decided on Saturday, in a move aimed at rectifying gender balance in the country’s premier institutes.

A meeting of the joint admission board of IITs recommended an increase of 600 seats – a hike of 14% — in the number of seats allotted to women, taking the total quota to 1,440 seats.

Officials, however, said the exact number could vary and will be decided on a year to year basis.

The committee also recommended awarding merit scholarships regardless of parental income to all female students based on merit. However, this has to be approved by the IIT council.

The quota increase will be from the “supernumerary” or excess seats, in the IITs, a senior HRD official said. The quota will be increased every academic year from 2018 till the number of female students touched 20%.

Currently, women make up just 8% of the student strength at 23 IITs across the country.

The increase won’t affect the existing number of seats for male candidates and the changes will be implemented over a maximum of eight years.

“The 20% supernumerary seats will be filled by female candidates who have cleared JEE-Advanced…so merit is followed,” said another official.

HT had first reported on January 16 that the JAB – which oversees IIT admissions – had proposed creating up to 20% additional seats for female students. Seats vacated by female students will be filled by female candidates only, explained an official.

A sub-committee under the chairmanship of professor Timothy Gonsalves was formed to find ways to rectify the situation in the institutes.

It was learnt that there was a 2% dip in the number of girls who cleared JEE-Advanced in 2016 compared to 2015.

While more than 1,000 women cracked the examination — roughly 10% of the total 10,000 seats — in 2015, approximately 840 made it to the institutes in 2016-17.

“The number of seats for male candidates will not be affected and this will help IITs achieve the target by 2020. Also, only candidates who have already qualified in JEE-Advanced will be considered,” an official added.

The IITs are among India’s best institutes and regularly ranked high in global surveys but are plagued by a paltry number of women students, seen as the Indian’s society’s belief that men are more suited for technical jobs.

“Due to societal preferences and biases in India, by and large, it is the sons who are sent for coaching rather than equally talented daughters. Holding traditional, paternalistic views, parents may believe that they are acting in the best interests of the girls, that they are protecting them from a hostile society that they are preparing them for a suitable feminine role in life,” a recent report said.

Besides, the admissions panel also decided that all candidates will get seven rounds of counselling, two more than the present number.

SC awards death to woman and lover who WIPED off entire family in love & property murder plan

NEW DELHI:

The Supreme Court on Friday imposed death sentences on a woman and her lover who wiped out her entire family — parents, two brothers, sister-in-law and two minors – after heavily sedating them to remove opposition to their love affair and also to grab the family property.

The apex court, which is generally lenient in awarding sentence to women convicts and of late has been increasingly reluctant to impose capital punishment, was shocked by the brutality of the crime.

A bench of Chief Justice H L Dattu and Justices S A Bobde and Arun Mishra dismissed the appeals of Shabnam and her lover Saleem and upheld the death penalty imposed on them by a UP trial court which was confirmed by the Allahabad HC.

Writing the judgment for the bench, Justice Dattu said, “Here is a case where the daughter Shabnam, who has been brought up in an educated and independent environment by her family and was respectfully employed as a teacher, influenced by the love and lust of her paramour has committed this brutal parricide (act of killing one’s father, mother or other close relative), exterminating seven lives including that of a 10-month-old innocent child.”

Shabnam, who was pregnant at the time of crime, had conspired with her unemployed lover Saleem and had served tea heavily laced with sedatives to her family members on the night of April 14, 2008. Saleem entered the house at Bahman Garhi in Amroha and the two slit the throats of the seven family members. She strangulated the 10-month-old child.

The CJI said, “Not only did she forget her love and duty towards her family, but also perpetrated the multiple homicides in her own house so as to fulfill her desire to be with the co-accused Saleem and grab the property leaving no heir but herself. Both the appellants wrench the heart of our society where family is an institution of love and trust, which they have disrespected and corrupted for the sake of their love affair.”

Amicus curiae Dushyant Parashar pleaded with the court that Shabnam, who was pregnant at the time of crime, was now the mother of a five-year-old child, who would be orphaned if both she and Saleem were awarded death penalty. He had pleaded for life sentence for the couple citing their young age.

The court rejected the plea. It said Indian society has experienced through centuries that daughters were more caring than sons towards their parents and feel the pinch more when the relationship with parents go awry.

It said a daughter was a care-giver and a supporter, a gentle hand and responsible voice, an embodiment of the cherished values of our society and in whom a parent placed blind faith and trust.

The bench said society abhorred parricide as a person trusted blindly could not be seen to murder those who trusted him/her.
Parricide assumes indescribable ghastliness when a teacher-daughter murders her teacher-father and her entire family, the bench said. “It is the combined concoction of all aggravating circumstances, that is, victims of the crime, motive for commission of murders, manner of execution, magnitude of crime and remorseless attitude of the appellants-accused that stands before us in this case,” the bench said and rejected the plea for award of life sentence to the convicts.
Past sentences

  • Renuka Shinde and her step-sister Seema Gavit were convicted in 2001 for kidnapping 13 children, forcing them to join a gang of thieves and murdering at least five of them. Shinde, 45, and Gavit, 39, were found guilty of kidnapping the 13 children in Maharashtra. They were initially accused of murdering nine of their victims, but prosecutors were only able to prove that they killed five. The Supreme Court upheld their sentence in 2006. The President rejected their mercy pleas last year.
  • Sonia and her husband were awarded death penalty by the SC in 2007 for murdering her father, mother, sister, step-brother and the entire family including three young children – one 45 days old, another two-and-a-half-year-old and the third four years old to resist her father’s decision to give the property to her stepbrother.

  • Shabnam is the third to be awarded death penalty in the last decade.
