Supreme Court to hear plea for termination of pregnancy on Friday

Published

on

New Delhi, July 21: The Supreme Court on Thursday issued notice to the Attorney General and Maharashtra on a plea filed by a rape victim seeking termination of her 24-week-old pregnancy due to the abnormal growth of foetus.

A bench chaired by Justice Jagdish Singh Khehar, Justice Kurian Joseph and Justice Arun Mishra will hear the further case on Friday after reviewing the doctor’s report which said that stomach of the foetus was uncovered and as a result the intestines were growing outside it.

As per the report the foetus’s skull too was not fully developed and chances of the survival of the foetus were from zero to a few hours.

The petitioner has demanded the direction of the court for the termination of her pregnancy as under the Medical Termination of Pregnancy Act, 1971 the pregnancy beyond 20 weeks could not be terminated.

However, under Section 5 of the MTP Act, pregnancy beyond 20 weeks could be terminated only if there is a threat to the life of the mother.

In the instant case there is no threat to the life of the mother but foetus is abnormal and the chances of its survival are remote.

Rahul Gandhi

Congress MP Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday criticised the government’s approach towards handling the ongoing farmers’ protest against the three newly-passed agriculture laws.

“Our providers are protesting on streets and those who lie are giving speeches on the TV,” Gandhi tweeted in Hindi. “We are indebted to the farmers. We can only repay by giving them their rights, not by insulting them or using lathis and tear gas against them.”

On Monday too, Gandhi had released a video message urging common people and Congress workers to extend help and support to the agitating farmers.

Meanwhile, Bharatiya Janata Party leader Manoj Tiwari on Tuesday criticised Gandhi calling him a “confused leader”.

“Rahul Gandhi is the most confused leader in the world,” Tiwari told PTI, at Uttar Pradesh’s Sultanpur city. “He does not know about farm laws passed recently. The farm laws that Parliament has passed recently have been accepted by all the states of the country except the Congress government of Punjab.”

The BJP leader also accused Congress and other opposition parties of provoking farmers against the new laws.

The farmers’ protest at Tikri and Singhu borders of the national Capital entered the sixth day on Tuesday. Thirty-six farmers’ unions have accepted the Centre’s invitation for early talks at 3 pm on Tuesday in Delhi’s Vigyan Bhawan in an attempt to find a resolution to the escalating protests.

Rape Sexual Violence

Pilibhit (Uttar Pradesh), Dec 1 : A 13-year-old mentally challenged girl was allegedly raped by a man in a village under the Sungarhi police circle.


The accused, who is a family friend, took the girl away on the pretext of buying toffees and raped her.

The crime was committed on November 27, but the girl’s family avoided lodging a complaint, fearing loss of family reputation.

An FIR was finally lodged by the victim’s family on Sunday evening and the girl was sent for medical examination on Monday to the district hospital.

SHO Atar Singh said that the accused has been booked under section 376 (rape) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and relevant sections of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act.
