Delhi man ‘in love’ regrets suicide bid with 12-year-old after losing both legs

When a man and a 12-year-old girl jumped before a moving train in an alleged suicide pact in Narela on Monday evening, the man was sure he would be dead within seconds. But when he regained consciousness a few hours later at a hospital, he was left regretting his decision.

Now, the 22-year-old man has not only lost both his legs, he is also staring at the possibility of being booked for abduction and rape. In his own words, he was “in love” with the 12-year-old minor girl for the last two years. The girl, who sustained multiple fractures, told a news channel that it was he who urged her to end their lives.

“If it was indeed the man who convinced the minor girl to accompany him to end their lives, we will probe the possibility of booking him for kidnapping,” said an investigator, adding it will also be probed if the man had sexually abused the girl. If established, he could end up getting booked for rape and under Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act, the officer said.

Recounting the events just before he and the girl made the jump, the man claimed that the girl had compelled him to end their lives together. “She threatened to jump from the terrace if I did not accompany her to die,” he alleged.

Woman delivers baby in e-rickshaw after alleged delay in

Meerut (UP), Aug 8 (PTI) The relatives of a 28-year-old woman have claimed that she had to deliver her baby in an e- rickshaw outside a hospital here due to alleged dilly-dallying by its staffers in admitting her.

The Lala Lajpat Rai Memorial (LLRM) Medical College authorities, however, have refuted the charge and launched a probe into the matter.

Suman, a resident of Kanshiram Residential Colony here, yesterday went into labour pain and soon her family members called up ASHA worker as well as an ambulance.

“But neither of them arrived and as Suman’s condition worsened she had to be taken to the hospital in an e- rickshaw,” her brother-in-law Suresh claimed.

He alleged that when they reached the hospital, the staffers kept them running from pillar to post instead of admitting her for half an hour.

“When her pain increased, a woman who had accompanied us to the hospital helped her deliver the baby in the e- rickshaw,” Suresh claimed.

He said it was only after the child was born that the chief medical superintendent (CMS) of the hospital, Dr Ajit Chaudhary, reached the spot and got the mother admitted in the maternity ward.

The baby, who was born on the day of ‘Raksha Bandhan’, has been named ‘Raksha’, Suresh said.

The CMS said a probe has been initiated and the woman’s statement would be recorded. If any staffer is found guilty, necessary action would be taken against them, Chaudhary added.

Hospital’s gynaecologist Dr Abhilasha claimed the woman had been suggested to get admitted in the maternity ward two days ago but her family insisted that she would stay at home.

The mother and the child both at present are doing well, she added.

China quake: At least 12 dead, toll expected to rise, says govt

Beijing: At least 12 people were killed when a 6.5-magnitude earthquake struck southwestern China, government sources said Wednesday, but the toll was expected to climb as news trickles out of the remote mountainous region.

The earthquake occurred late Tuesday, killing 12 and injuring 175, 28 of them seriously, according to a statement by the government of Aba prefecture, where the epicentre was located.

But China’s National Commission for Disaster Reduction estimated that as many as 100 people may have perished, based on past census data of the sparsely populated region.

Initial images emerging from the quake zone showed paramilitary police searching through rubble for survivors.

Elsewhere, stunned people were seen milling about on debris-strewn streets, fearful of going back inside in case of further tremors.

At least one aftershock, measured at 4.2 magnitude by the US Geological Survey (USGS), hit the region shortly after the main quake.

Early on Wednesday, a 6.3-magnitude earthquake shook northwest China’s Xinjiang region, thousands of kilometres from Sichuan, according to the (USGS).
