NEW DELHI — In a shocking incident, the village Panchayat in Satara district of Maharashtra, ordered whipping to father and his pregnant daughter after an incident came to know that the girl became pregnant from his own father.
The minor girl, who was raped by her own father for over four months, punished as she didn’t opposed the crime and she got to be pregnant, as per Aajtak.in.
Both the father and girl were publicly whipped 10 times.
The Panchayat, in its verdict, said that the girl was also a guilty as she did not resisted the rape so she was also an accused in the crime.
The incident came to light when an RTI activist approached the police with photos and other proofs. Police have filed a complaint and started investigation into the case.Follow @gorkhapost
Govt, transport entrepreneurs strike eight-point agreement
KATHMANDU — The government and agitating transport entrepreneurs have stroked an eight-point agreement on Friday.
The government has also agreed to amend provisions of the new Criminal Code as demanded by the transport entrepreneurs.
With the agreement, the agitating transport entrepreneurs have called off their protest programs after the government agreed to address their demands.
Tanker transport entrepreneurs had been staging protest since Tuesday against provisions in the penal code, including 10-year imprisonment for accidents and life imprisonment for causing death.
Following the agreement, the ongoing fuel supply crisis is now expected to end.
The entire country has been facing short of fuel due to the disruption of fuel supply after tanker drivers went on a strike to press for their demands.
Earlier today, after nation wide fuel shortage, the Nepal Oil Corporation has decided to start rationing of fuel citing depleting stock due to inadequate supply of petroleum products.
According to the NOC, a two-wheeler will be allowed to purchase 5 liters of petrol and light four-wheeler vehicle will be allowed to purchase 15 liters of petrol.
Likwise, the state oil monopoly has urged the petrol pumps to sell maximum 50 liters diesel to short-route vehicles and maximum 100 liters to long-route vehicles.
The NOC has also urged the fuel stations to prioritise ambulances, school buses and government vehicles while selling the fuel.Follow @gorkhapost
