Ruchika case

Chandigarh, June 2 : The family of Ruchika Girhotra, who allegedly committed suicide after being molested by former Haryana DGP S.P.S Rathore, has said they won’t object to the CBI’s reports that dropped torture charges against the officer.

The reports say there’s no evidence to prove Ruchika’s brother Ashu was tortured in police custody and that the signatures of her father S.C. Girhotra on the victim’s post-mortem report had been forged.

Foetuses

Beed: Police have recovered two aborted female foetuses, including that of a nearly nine months old, in Maharashtra’s Beed, which has one of the lowest sex ratios in the state.

Beed district collector Sadanand Koche has set up five teams to conduct searches at all maternity homes, hospitals and private clinics in the district.

The development comes a couple of weeks after the death of a mother of four girls while undergoing an abortion. The 2011 census showed that Beed had one of the lowest sex ratios at 801 females per 1,000 in the age group of 0-6 years.
