However, Section 2(k) of the Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection of Children) Act, 2000, defines a “juvenile” or “child” as a person who has not completed eighteen years of age. A person who was a juvenile at the time of commission of offence is entitled to the protection. The claim of juvenility may be raised at any stage, even after the final disposal of the case as held by this Court in  Abuzar Hossain @ Ghulam Hossain vs. State of West Bengal reported in (2012) 10 SCC 489. The delay in raising the claim of juvenility is no ground for rejection of such a claim. Similar view has been taken in numerous subsequent cases of this Court.”, the court said.The court also noted that Section 2(k) of the Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection of Children) Act, 2000, defines a “juvenile” or “child” as a person who has not completed eighteen years of age. A person who was a juvenile at the time of commission of offence is entitled to the protection, it said.The court, therefore, directed the District and Sessions Judge, Siddharth Nagar, Uttar Pradesh is directed to conduct an inquiry into the juvenility of the applicant Isha Charan and submit a report to this Court within one month from date. The court also directed that she be released on bail on such conditions as may be imposed by the District and Sessions Judge, Siddharth Nagar, Uttar Pradesh.Similar application moved by a co-accused Vijay Bahadur was also allowed.Case: Ram Chandra vs. State of Uttar Pradesh [SLP (Crl)  8633/2017]Coram: Justices Indira Banerjee and Krishna MurariCounsel: Sr. Adv S.R.

Union Secretary resigns for “personal reasons”

first_imgCai Wilshaw, who was elected unopposed to the position of Oxford Union Secretary, has decided not to take up his position for Michaelmas. The decision was made on the morning of Tuesday 11th June, and means that the member of standing committee with the highest number of votes in the last election, in this case Roberto Weeden-Sanz, succeeds Wilshaw as Secretary.In a statement to the Cherwell, Wilshaw confirmed that he had declined the role. Wilshaw said: ‘For personal reasons, I will not be taking up the position of Secretary next term. I have had a brilliant time in the Union and have made some fantastic friends. I wish all the best to my successor and everyone else on committee in Michaelmas.’Outgoing President Joey D’Urso confirmed Wilshaw’s departure, stating that ‘In accordance with Rule 38(a)ii and 38(f), Cai has decided not to take up the position of Secretary in Michaelmas.’Rule 38(a)ii states that ‘Resignations from Office or from the Standing Committee must be sent simultaneously by email to the President and to any person next in line to succeed’, whilst Rule 38(f) confirms that, as Secretary-designate, die or resign then ‘his death or resignation shall be deemed, for the purposes of this Rule only, to have taken place immediately after his succession to Office.’D’Urso went on to say that ‘[he] would like to thank him very much for his hard work on Standing Committee, especially the Eurovision party he organised and his excellent speech in the sixth week banking debate. Roberto Weeden-Sanz is next in the line of succession and has thus been offered the position of Secretary, which he has accepted. I am confident Roberto and the rest of next term’s committee will do a fantastic job.’A post in the Facebook group ‘Overheard at Oxford Uni’ recently described this as ‘the dirtiest Union election in living memory’, and, in the aftermath, a series of thirteen tribunals were launched, all of which were subsequently withdrawn.last_img read more

A warning for youth

first_imgSenior author S. Bryn Austin, a professor in the Department of Social and Behavioral Sciences, noted that reputable physicians do not recommend the type of dietary supplements analyzed in this study. Many of these products have been found to be adulterated with prescription pharmaceuticals, banned substances, heavy metals, pesticides, and other dangerous chemicals. And other studies have linked weight-loss and muscle-building supplements with stroke, testicular cancer, liver damage, and even death.“How can we continue to let the manufacturers of these products and the retailers who profit from them play Russian roulette with America’s youth?” Austin said. “It is well past time for policymakers and retailers to take meaningful action to protect children and consumers of all ages.”This study was funded by the Ellen Feldberg Gordon Fund for Eating Disorders Prevention Research and the Strategic Training Initiative for the Prevention of Eating Disorders. Yongjoo Kim of Harvard Chan School was also a co-author. Related Vitamin D may slow progression of metastatic colorectal cancer Daily or weekly dose had greatest benefit for those with significant deficiency Encouraging results prompt planned evaluation in large phase 3 trial Study confirms vitamin D protects against colds and flu Consumption of dietary supplements sold for weight loss, muscle building, and energy was associated with increased risk for severe medical events in children and young adults compared with consumption of vitamins, according to new research led by Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. The study, published today in the Journal of Adolescent Health, found that these types of supplements were linked to nearly three times as many severe medical outcomes as vitamins in young people.“The FDA has issued countless warnings about supplements sold for weight loss, muscle building or sport performance, sexual function, and energy, and we know these products are widely marketed to and used by young people,” said lead author Flora Or, a researcher with Harvard Chan School’s Strategic Training Initiative for the Prevention of Eating Disorders. “So what are the consequences for their health? That’s the question we wanted to answer.”The researchers looked at adverse event reports between January 2004 and April 2015 in the U.S. Food and Drug Administration Adverse Event Reporting System on the food and dietary supplements database. They analyzed the relative risk for severe medical events such as death, disability, and hospitalization in individuals aged 0 and 25 years that were linked with the use of dietary supplements sold for weight loss, muscle building, or energy compared with vitamins.They found that there were 977 single-supplement-related adverse event reports for the target age group. Of those, approximately 40 percent involved severe medical outcomes, including death and hospitalization. Supplements sold for weight loss, muscle building, and energy were associated with almost three times the risk for severe medical outcomes compared with vitamins. Supplements sold for sexual function and colon cleansing were associated with approximately two times the risk for severe medical outcomes compared with vitamins.last_img read more

Panel analyzes India’s elections

first_imgTags: bharativya janata party, BJP, CWIL, hinduism, India, india elections 2014, karie cross, panel at saint mary’s on india, pradeep naravanan, sonalini sapra, srishti agnihotri On Wednesday, Saint Mary’s hosted a panel on the 2014 elections in India as part of International Education Week, sponsored by the Center for Women’s Intercultural Leadership (CWIL) and the department of political science. The panel was called “India 2014: Assessing the Elections and Beyond.”Contributing to the panel were four presenters, including Srishti Agnihotri, a graduate student in International Human Rights Law at Notre Dame, Sonalini Sapra, assistant professor in political science at Saint Mary’s, Karie Cross, a Ph.D student in political science and peace studies at Notre Dame and Pradeep Narayanan, head of research and consultancies at Praxis Institute for Participatory Practices in India. Chair of political science at Saint Mary’s Marc Belanger helped to facilitate the discussion.Agnihotri began the panel discussion as the first presenter, focusing on the context surrounding India’s 2014 elections. She spoke of India as a multi-party parliamentary system, with 543 available seats in the congress. The significance of this election was due to the fact that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) won the majority, holding 282 seats, which has not happened since 1984, Agnihotri said.The reason the BJP was able to get so many seats was due to “changes that arose between the 2009 election and the 2014 election that diminished public opinion of the government,” which “was due to a series of a high-profile scandals,” she said.“The public began to see the regime as corrupt, and what could have been defended by public policy, the government seemed to be completely mute,” Agnihotri said.Agnihotri also brought up the reasons the leader of the BJP, Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayeeas, was able to gain popularity.“He was a self-made man, who had very good public speaking skills … but under his leadership, the BJP was able to channel the sense of dissatisfaction, due to corruption, inflation and the increase of rapings, into political action,” she said.The second panelist presenter, Cross, changed the tone of the panel to focus on religion in India’s election, describing the significance of Hindu nationalism and how it had been utilized by politics in the past.Cross discussed how there were two ideas about running the government in regards to Hindu nationalism.“Hinduism is not just a religion, but it gives India its distinctive national identity … and that others do not have to convert but adapt and accept the sameness of the nation’s interest,” Cross said. “This was against the idea that all religions should have an equal pull in the state and focus on diversity and inclusion.“There would be a problem because the minorities could lose their security to practice their own cultures” Cross said. “Incidents of religious tensions and riots in Gujarat that were possibly led by the new PM, Modi, reveal this loss of security. This was overshadowed by Modi’s focus on economic growth, which was largely accepted, and shows that the economy is being more valued than humanity.”Cross also looked to different areas in India, such as the northeast, where there is an even larger diversity.“Problems of sameness promoted by Hindu Nationalism reveals that the conditions of people in the northeast will degenerate,” she said.Narayanan, who joined the discussion via Skype, spoke of the different influences effecting participation and voters in the 2014 Indian election.“What is shaping elections today is a bit of danger, which comes from the Americanization of the Indian election … the rise of the power of money and how it is able to influence how politics are brought out into the public domain and change the narration of debates,” Narayanan said. “My main point is that in 2009, the government was not voted out by the people, because big corporate lobbies were in favor of the government.”According to Narayanan, corruption within the system stems from inequity, which is the main problem.“Because corruption is being addressed without looking at equity technical solutions being made cannot fix the situation,” he said.The final presenter, Sapra, described the environmental policies in the post-election period.“I want to emphasize that it is not just the modern government that has not taken environmental policy seriously, but previous governments as well did not fulfill any of their promises of environment sustainability,” Sapra said.Sapra spoke of how the government’s focus on economic development overshadowed the environmental concerns.“Businesses would more often support the focus of economic interest, but many critics would stress that it is hard to separate the environmental concerns from the needs of the Indian people,” she said. “Coal mining is increasing in India, which is affecting more people because it is by the process of strip mining.“India has long maintained that it has not been largely responsible for emissions thus far and so should be able to industrialize,” she said.However, Sapra spoke of positive initiatives to clean up India that can act as generative solutions to the environmental concerns.“By 2019, the holy city of Varanasi is to be cleaned … it is interesting how initiatives are being taken up by local communities and religion,” she said.last_img read more
