Those who planned, oversaw 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks must be brought to justice, External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar

External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar tweeted on Saturday, on the 14th anniversary of the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks, that those who planned and oversaw this act must be brought to justice.

The Foreign Minister stated, presenting a brief film with images from the devastating incident that left 166 people dead and more than 300 injured that we owed this to every victim of terrorism around the world.

As accountable members of the international community, it is our responsibility to keep in mind their suffering and persevere in our attempts to prosecute those who commit acts of terrorism, said Jaishankar.

A message from Prime Minister Narendra Modi concludes the video. The PM is heard saying even one attack, in our opinion, is too many. One lost life is too many, even if it’s just one. Thus, we won’t stop working until terrorism is eradicated.

India claims that prior attempts to impose sanctions on those responsible for the 26/11 terrorist attacks were unsuccessful due to political reasons, allowing them to remain at large and plan more cross-border attacks against the nation.

In her statements to the UN Security Council, Ambassador Ruchira Kamboj of India said, lest we forget, in November 2008, 10 terrorists infiltrated the city of Mumbai through maritime route from Pakistan, devastating the city for 4 days, killing 166 people, including 26 foreign nationals.

In order to voice its concerns about terrorism and pay respect to those who perished in the incident, the World Jewish Congress (WJC) has joined the Indian government in mourning the lives of the 166 victims who were killed in the Mumbai terrorist attacks on November 26, 2008, ahead of the event’s 14th anniversary. At the Mumbai Chabad House, the terrorists also murdered four other captives, including Rabbi Gavriel Holtzberg and his expectant wife Rivka.

Devendra Fadnavis, the deputy chief minister of Maharashtra, called the 26/11 Mumbai terrorist attacks a wound that will never heal. He promised that his government will take all necessary measures to stop another one.

Removing innerwear of minor girls forcefully is equivalent to rape, says Calcutta High Court

Minor Rape

The Calcutta High Court on Tuesday held that forceful removal of the innerwear of minor girls is equivalent to rape.

A single judge bench of Justice Ananya Bandopadhyay ruled this out while hearing a 2007 minor case. Justice Bandhopadhyay held that removing the undergarment of the minor victim and forcing her to lie down on the ground cannot be for any other reason than to sexually ravish her.

She also observed that the minor child cannot be pampered or mollycoddled by asking to remove her pants and reclining her against her wish.

The High Court was hearing a case of Robi Roy who was accused of luring a minor girl to a secluded place with ice cream and asking her to remove her innerwear. When the minor victim refused, he forcefully removed her undergarment.

Roy was declared guilty by a lower court in West Dinajpur in 2008. Reports said the incident came to light after the minor victim started screaming when Roy forcefully removed her innerwear.

The nearby locals rushed to the spot following her scream and handed over the accused to the police.

Reports further said the lower court declared Roy guilty in November 2008 and slapped him with five and a half years of jail and also imposed a fine of Rs 3,000 for the crime.

Roy challenged the order of West Dinajpur and moved to the High Court and claimed that he was falsely implicated. The accused, in his petition, claimed that he had no bad intentions towards the victim and expressed his fatherly affection towards the girl.

Reports also said the medical tests conducted on the minor victim proved that no sexual assault was carried out on her. However, the Calcutta High Court on February 7 ruled out that the incident is similar to the rape of sexual offence under Section 375 of the Indian Penal Code.
