Trying to escape police, two sex workers fell from third floor window

Two alleged sex workers died on 10 April during a police raid in Mumbai. The two women fell from a third floor window while trying to escape from the police in Grant Road, south Mumbai.

They fall from Om Building in D B Marg and were immediately rushed to J J Hospital, in Byculla where they were given necessary care. However, both encoutered serious injuries and could not survive.

The police frequently performed raids in order to dismantle brothels and deter prostitution. If prostitution was much permissible in India under the Immoral Traffic Suppression Act (SITA) of 1956, some sections of Indian Penal Code still acted as a deadlock to sex workers. Moreover, the Immoral Traffic Prevention Act (ITPA) of 1986 came as a counter effect to the SITA. In fact, while the SITA allowed sex worker to operate in confined areas, the ITPA allows the police to arrest sex workers if they are caught soliciting clients.

The two women had not been identified. They were aged 30 and 50 years old according to sources.

A former Pakistan hockey player has appealed to the Indian government to grant him a visa so he can travel to the country for a heart transplant.

Uttar Pradesh: Fake Rs 500 Notes are coming out from an ATM

The residents of Bareilly district in Uttar Pradesh were in for a rude shock when the ATM machine of United Bank of India installed at Subhashnagar started dispensing fake Rs 500 notes, with ‘Children Bank of India’, ‘Bhartiya Manoranjan Bank’ and ‘Churan Lable’ written over it.

Interestingly, the Rs 500 notes were similar to the original Rs 500 notes which are issued by the RBI. The fake notes were dispensed not to one but three people who came to withdraw money from the ATM.

The unguarded ATM of United Bank of India at Subhashnagar dispensed counterfeit currency first on Sunday evening to Ashok Kumar Pathak, a retired employee with health department and a resident of Ishwari Bhawan where the latter found ‘Children Bank of India’ written over them. Previously, a resident of Rajeev Colony, Pravin Uttam also got two fake notes of Rs 500 denomination

Opposition organisations protest over Cauvery issue claim constitutional amendment

Tamil Naidu: Opposition protested over the Cauvery issue by forming a human chain to demand constitutional amendment. Protestors call for the amendment of the Cauvery Management Board (CMB) and Cauvery Water Regulatory Committee.

The protests involved different parties but the opposition was held by Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK).

While a judgement was pronounced over the Cauvery case on 16 February by the bench of judges comprised Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justices Amitava Roy and AM Khanwilkar, the Cauvery issue remains unsolved. Water dispensing is in fact a big issue between the states of Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Uttar Pradesh, Puducherry and Karnataka. Farmers claim that water distribution is unequal and make it almost impossible to sustain their families. Poor distribution of water and long droughts in some regions have led over the recent years in an increase in farmers’ suicide that cannot earn a living and repay their loans.

The Court will hear the case on 3 May 2018.
