Man kills two kids, injures wife
Antony Raj of Tamil Nadu suspected his wife of infidelity; killed himself too
A man, who suspected the fidelity of his wife, allegedly went on a rampage in his village in Virudhunagar district of Tamil Nadu on Sunday morning, killing his two children and slashing his wife with a machete before killing himself.
The man identified as Antony Raj of Salvarpatti village in Virudhunagar district, woke up at around 4.30 am on Sunday and went on a hacking spree. He attacked his family, killing his children –nine-year-old daughter and four-year-old son – and inflicting serious injuries on his wife Munneeswari.
She was first admitted to Sattur government hospital and later referred to a Madurai hospital.
Inspector of Vembakottai police station G Rajesh Khanna said that Antony Raj suspected the fidelity of his wife and had failed to go to work for the past one-and-a-half years. Munneeswari in her statement to police said that he had psychological problems and suspected her of having an affair.
Of late, Raj was obsessed with death and wanted them all to die because he feared what would happen to his wife and children after his death, she said.
Headless body of abducted man found in north Kashmir
Police believe he was executed in Daesh styleANIL RAINA
The headless body of 24-year-old Manzoor Ahmed Bhat, who was abducted by terrorists from his house a couple of days ago, was found in the outskirts of Hajin town in north Kashmir’s Bandipora district on Friday. Authorities say Bhat was executed Daesh style with his throat slit.
J&K police spokesperson Manoj Pandita told Mirror, “While the father escaped with gunshot wounds, the son was whisked away and was held hostage.”
Pandita said the police suspect that a local terrorist Mohommad Saleem Parrey, who joined Lashkar-e-Taiba last summer, is believed to have played a major role in the killing of the local innocent youth.
Bhat is the second person to be kidnapped and killed by terrorists this week in north Kashmir’s Hajin.

Zabiullah had escaped in an injured condition after a two-day long gunfight with the security forces last month in Check Post Fateh Khan of Kupwara. The gunfight had claimed 10 lives including five terrorists, three soldiers and two policemen.
Man rapes daughter with friends
Sitapur (UP), PTI: In a shocking case, a man has been booked for raping his 35-year-old daughter along with two of his friends in Sitapur city in Uttar Pradesh, police said on Thursday.
Additional SP (South) Martand Prakash Singh said the woman was raped by the men in Kamlapur area on April 15.
She filed a police complaint on the next day.
While one of the accused has been arrested, the victim’s father and another accused are absconding, he said.
“The woman has a son. She married almost 20 years ago. However, she separated from her husband and was living with her father,” the additional SP said.
On April 15, the man took his daughter to a fair, an annual feature in Kamlapur, around 70 km from Lucknow. There, he called up his friend Maan Singh and asked him to join them, police said.
According to police, Maan Singh has partnered the woman’s father in a number of crimes.
The two men then convinced the woman to ride with them on a motorcycle to the residence of their friend Meraj. There, the men locked her up in a room for nearly 18 hours and took turns to rape her, police said.
The victim somehow managed to escape and reached home. She narrated her ordeal to her mother and the complaint was registered, police said. In November last year, the victim’s father was accused by the village panchayat of having illicit relationship with his daughter. He was arrested but released on bail in February.
HC: India’s image is that of a country of crimes and rapes
Mumbai, PTI: India’s image today has taken a beating with a growing perception abroad that it’s a country of crimes and rapes and that liberal and secular people are not safe here, the Bombay High Court observed on Thursday.
The observation was made amid a nation-wide outrage over the Kathua rape cum murder and the Unnao rape cases.
A bench of justices S C Dharamadhikari and Bharati Dangre went on to say that the rest of the world is now hesitant to engage with India over educational or cultural issues due to the state of affairs here.
The bench made these observations while hearing pleas by the kin of slain rationalist Narendra Dabholkar and communist leader Govind Pansare. They had sought a court-monitored probe into the killings.
“It is unfortunate that today, the image of the country is such that those living abroad feel only crimes and rapes happen in India.
“Anywhere we go (outside India), we have to answer a barrage of questions. People are under the impression that liberal, open-minded and secular people cannot be safe in India and that they are bound to be attacked. The image of India is suffering due to the acts of a few people,” the bench said.
Senior counsel Ashok Mundargi, the lawyer for Maharashtra Crime Investigation Department probing Pansare’s murder, told the court that there was little hope of achieving anything substantial from further field probe. “Field probe, including raids at possible hiding places, will not lead to anything anymore. Our only hope is scientific probe and evidence from call detail records, forensics etc,” he said.
The bench said while it was not critical so far of the ongoing probes by the two agencies, it could not allow them to leave everything to the mere hope that the absconding accused people in the two cases, tired of hiding or fearing threat to their lives, would turn themselves in one day.
Navi Mumbai: Woman’s Decomposed Body Found In Sewer With Only Identifier Being A Flower Tattoo
The police found the body on April 9, after being alerted by the control room about a foul smell emanating from a sewer carrying industrial waste close to Airoli railway station
The flower tattoo on the woman’s right forearm is the only identifier
Deja vu seems to have struck the Rabale MIDC police. Close to a year after they found the headless body of a murdered woman who could be identified only because of a tattoo, another such case has come to light, this time of a woman, whose body was found highly decomposed, with the only mark of recognition being a flower tattoo on her right forearm.
The highly decomposed body was found on April 9
The police found the body on April 9, after being alerted by the control room about a foul smell emanating from a sewer carrying industrial waste close to Airoli railway station. When a team visited the spot, they saw the highly decomposed body of a woman with maggots all over it. Her face was beyond recognition. A closer examination helped cops lay hands on their only clue – the tattoo.
The woman was wearing this kurta
Dumped or hacked
Speaking to mid-day, inspector P Jadhav of Rabale police station said, “We saw the upper body on a dry surface, while her legs were submerged in the sewer water. The deceased was removed from the water and upon examination, the tattoo was found on the forearm. A dupatta was also found around her neck. Prima-facie, we suspect the deceased might have been known to the assailant and that the body could have either been dumped or the accused may have hacked the woman to death.”
Armed with only the flower tattoo on the right forearm of the deceased, and a picture of the chudidar and decomposed body, policemen have fanned across Mumbai, Thane and neighbouring areas looking for some clue from the missing persons register, whose description could match with that of the remains.
A parallel investigation is being done by the local crime branch, who also visited the spot. Tushar Doshi, deputy commissioner of police (crime) said, “We have limited clues in hand. We could not find any tailor’s name on the greenish yellow Punjabi kurta that the deceased was wearing. We could not find anything concrete from the spot, as there was a lot of muck and waste in and around the area where the body was found; it was already in a decomposed state.”
The local police have already started showing the tattoo to tattoo artists in and around the area. Cops are also checking if a bar dancer or woman employee from the MIDC industrial area have gone missing in the last few days. Meanwhile, the autopsy has thrown up details about the way the woman was killed. The remains were sent to the NMMC hospital’s Vashi post mortem centre. During the course of the procedure, autopsy surgeon Dr Bhushan Jain confirmed the woman was strangulated to death and had also suffered a head injury. Dr Jain said, “The incident might have happened around three to five days ago, as the upper body and face had been eaten up by maggots. The body was in a highly decomposed state. The death was due to strangulation and head injury.”
Ante mortem injuries
A source at the police station said prima-facie it seems that the deceased might have been between 30-35 years old, the injuries on the body were ante mortem (before death) injuries and a dupatta, possibly worn by the woman, was used to strangulate her. Since the body was partly submerged in water, early signs of decomposition were visible on the lower remains, whereas the upper remains were highly decomposed. Rabale police have registered a case of murder and destruction of evidence against unknown assailant(s).

Two women rope in man to kill financier
Police have arrested two women and a man for murdering a 67-year-old financier for gain on April 2.
Sanjay Satish, from Mathura, Uttar Pradesh, was tied up and strangled in his rented flat in Bethel Nagar, KR Puram, East Bengaluru. His decomposed body was found three days later. Police have arrested Sumathi (23), Sumayya Bano (22), both from Shankara Math, and Karthik (20), from Maruthi Nagar, Yelahanka, said Abdul Ahad, DCP (Whitefield).
On March 27, Sumayya had gone to the Malleswaram police station to file a domestic abuse complaint against her husband, Dadapeer. Satish was also there to lodge a complaint about a financial dispute. They got to know each other and exchanged phone numbers.
Satish later called up Sumayya, saying he was looking for a domestic help as his wife and son had moved to New Zealand. Sumayya, along with Sumathi, visited his flat on March 31. They saw him wearing three gold chains and other jewellery. They also learnt about cash in the house.
The women told Satish they would come back in two days. They decided to hatch a plot to kill him and take away the booty.
On April 2, the women, along with Karthik, went to Satish’s house and pounced on him. They tied him up, threw chilli powder at his face and strangled him. They then took away Rs 1.5 lakh in cash, three gold chains and three gold rings of 230 grams, all worth Rs 7 lakh, and fled from the scene by wearing the burqa.
Police arrested the suspects on Monday night. A magistrate has remanded them in police custody for further investigation.
Ahad said Satish had moved to Bengaluru several years ago and was into the moneylending business. He initially lived in Malleswaram before moving to KR Puram. He had divorced his wife before moving to Bengaluru.
