1. Man Kills Minor Boy After He Resists Sexual Assault

A man was arrested for allegedly sexually assaulting and killing a minor boy after he tried to resist from the crime, police said on Friday, 16 March.

The accused, Amar Nath, was traced after the victim's friend helped the police in getting his sketch prepared, they said.

On 28 February, a resident of Jaitpur approached police with a complaint that his 11-year-old son was missing and expressed a suspicion that he had been kidnapped. A case was registered and efforts were made to find the boy, Deputy Commissioner of Police (Southeast) Chinmoy Biswal said.

However, on 3 March, the body of a boy was seen floating in Agra Canal. The body was sent to AIIMS mortuary as it resembled the boy. The father subsequently identified him and the autopsy revealed that he had a sharp cut injury on his neck.

7. Mumbai Man Gets 4 Life Terms for Raping his 2 Teenage Daughters

A 41-year-old security guard was sentenced to four concurrent life imprisonments on Friday for repeatedly raping both his teenage daughters between 2013 and 2015.

The special Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act (POCSO) court tried the accused on charges of rape under sections of the POCSO Act. Judge MA Baraliya ordered the convict to pay Rs 45,000 to each of the survivors as compensation.

The incidents came to light when the younger survivor, 15, was crying at school and narrated the ordeal to her friend. The friend told her sister and eventually local Shiv Sena party workers got to know of it. The man’s crimes were reported to the police in July 2015 when a group of Sena workers, including women, showed up at the house of the girls’ uncle and beat up the parents of the survivors.

8. Man Shoots ‘Bully’ in Revenge Killing, Leaves Body on Defunct Railway Track

Vineet Kumar, a 28-year-old Meerut resident, went through several plots, some even in meticulous details, for the past two years to serve his coldest dish of revenge. A glaring loophole in the plan, however, landed him and an accomplice behind the bars.

Vineet and his friend Itesh Kumar had killed 30-year-old Rahul Chaudhary on 6 February and left his body on the railway tracks hoping that it will be mutilated beyond recognition. Only that, no trains ran on it for the past several years. The two were arrested on Friday, 16 March, for the murder that had kept police clueless for more nearly a month.

The details of the incident were revealed during Vineet’s interrogation by officers. “Chaudhary was a bully. Two years ago, he had thrashed me during a drinking session for no fault of mine. I tried to forget it but he would not let me. Every time we saw each other, he would mock about it by saying a dialogue: jo mere dilo-dimag mein khatakte hain, wo shamshaano mein bhatakte hai (those who bother me end up in graveyard). I could take it no longer and began looking for opportunities to settle scores with him,” Vineet told police.
