Yadav, who started his campaign with a
‘padyatra’ (march) two days ago, took to Twitter to allege that the Modi government was “targeting” his family. “Modi regime now targets my family. Two days after my 9-day padyatra in Rewari and launching of agitation for MSP (minimum support price) and against liquor thekas (shops), a massive IT raid is on at the hospital-cumnursing home of my sisters (sic) in Rewari,” he said. “Pl(ease) search me, my home, why target my family?,” he further tweeted.
“About 100+ force from Delhi raided hospitals at 11 am today. All doctors (my sister s, brother in law, nephew) detained in their chambers. Hospital sealed, including ICU for newly born babies. A clear attempt to intimidate. Modiji you can’t silence me,” Yadav said.

Criticised for garlanding lynching convicts, Jayant Sinha expresses regret
Union minister Jayant Sinha on Wednesday expressed his “regret” after facing intense cr iticism for felicitating seven convicted cow vigilantes in Jharkhand’s Hazaribagh last week. “I have said many times that the matter is still sub judice. It won’t be fair to talk on this. Law will take its own course. We have always worked towards punishing the guilty and sparing the innocent,” Sinha was quoted as saying by news agency ANI. “If by garlanding them (Ramgarh lynching case convicts) an impression has gone out that

I support such vigilantism then I express regret over it,” he added. Sinha had last Thursday welcomed the seven cow vigilantes, convicted for lynching a Muslim meat trader in Ramgarh in June last year. The convicts went to Sinha’s residence to meet him after their release from jail. The Hazaribagh MP on Saturday justified his action, stating that he was merely “honouring the due process of law” by doing so. He clarified his position saying that the high court has suspended the sentence of the accused and released them on bail while admitting their case. The case will once again be re-heard. Yashwant Sinha, his father and former BJP leader, said he did not approve his son’s action. (From page 3)

Adultery must stay a crime to protect sanctity of marriage, says Centre T he gover nment on Wednesday told the Supreme Court it opposes a petition that calls for making men and woman equally liable for adultery, which is a crime under Indian law. Section 497 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) says a man who has sex with a woman who is not his wife is liable for prosecution. Scrapping the law “will prove to be detrimental to the intrinsic Indian ethos which gives paramount importance to the institution and sanctity of marriage,” the government said. “The law was en-
acted to protect and safeguard the sanctity of marriage, keeping in mind the unique structure and culture of the Indian society. T he decriminalisation of adultery will result in weakening the sanctity of a marital bond and will result in laxity in the marital bond,” it said in an affidavit, according to NDTV. T he gover nment was responding to a petition filed by the Joseph Shine, a resident of Kerala, on why a mar r ied man alone and not a woman should be dealt under the law.

ghy. As per details, these Myanmarese poachers were desperately looking for an escape route since more than one month, after police captured their machine dinghies, and arrested nearly eight of them recently from deep jungles of Little Andaman Islands, during a combing operation. The combing operation was still on when these poachers suddenly showed up at Pather Nallah area of Little Andaman Island and attacked five fishermen. Sources said that these five fishermen were part of a 13 member fishermen team, while rest of the fishermen were away for fishing these five fishermen, stayed back with their dinghies. The fishing team reportedly had three dinghies, out of which two were oar dinghies and one was engine dinghy. As per fishermen,
while these 17 poachers escaped with engine dinghy they left two oar dinghies in deep sea so that these fishermen can’t follow them. Later, when colleagues of these fishermen returned they found their friends tied with ropes and injured.

Three fishermen, whose condition is said to be critical, were referred to Port Blair’s G B Pant Hospital.
