Doctors yet to confirm rape of the Murdered Woman in Kolkata

By Sanjib Chakraborty

Jan 1, 2013,

BARASAT: Even after 48 hours of the alleged gang rape and murder of the 45-year-old woman from Barasat, police are yet to make any breakthrough in their probe.

A five-member team led by Puspendu Sengupta, the superintendent of Barasat district hospital, conducted the post-mortem on the victim on Sunday. According to sources, the medical team did not reach any conclusion whether the woman was raped. "Initially, it was not confirmed in the autopsy that she was raped. It is also difficult to confirm whether a 45- year-old woman, who has spent a long married life, was raped or not. A forensic test will also be conducted to confirm whether there was any rape," a senior official of the hospital authorities said.

Meanwhile, the CID officially took over the case on Monday. "According to the state government's order, we have taken over the Barasat case and an investigation has already been started by a team," said Shibaji Ghosh, ADG, CID.

Though police have arrested one Ichha Morol, a resident of Sarberia in South 24-Parganas, in this connection but are yet to ascertain whether Morol had masterminded the attack

on woman and her husband. Morol is a worker of the same brick kiln where the victim and her husband also worked. Police arrested him on Sunday following an initial statement of

Mahashin Ali, the victim's husband who is still undergoing treatment at R G Kar hospital.

"The investigation is on. We are exploring all possible angles. An accused has already been arrested and more persons are being interrogated. We are also waiting for the final statement of the victim's husband who is undergoing treatment. The raids are being also conducted to nab the others involved in the crime and the arrested person is being interrogated in this connection," said Sugato Sen, SP, North 24-Parganas.

Alfaz Ali, the victim's elder son, said: "Police are frequently visiting our place for interrogation. We are also co-operating. We want the miscreants, who raped and murdered my mother, to be punished."

After recovering two weapons from the murder spot police are also investigating whether it was pre-planned. Police recovered a hammer and a blood stained dagger from the water body, where the victim's naked body was found lying in a pool of blood on Saturday evening.

"Several deep injury marks were found on the victim's head while after a preliminary investigation we suspect that she was hit hard with both sharp and blunt weapons. We are also investigating whether any enmity could have led the murder," an investigating officer said.

Balochistan elects first woman deputy speaker

January 01, 2013

* JUI-F’s Syed Matiullah Agha and BNP-Awami’s Fouzia Marri elected as speaker, deputy speaker of Balochistan Assembly

QUETTA: The Balochistan Assembly on Monday elected Dr Fouzia Marri as its deputy speaker, the first woman to be elected to the position.

The leader of Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam (Fazl) Syed Matiullah Agha was elected as speaker. It is for the first time in the parliamentary history of the Balochistan Assembly that a female legislator has been elected unopposed as deputy speaker in the provincial legislature. The slot of speaker fell vacant after the House adopted with majority a no-trust motion against former speaker, Muhammad Aslam Bhootani, on December 26.

The session of Balochistan Assembly teed off with Deputy Speaker Matiullah Agha in the chair for the elections of speaker and deputy speaker. While there was no other agenda other than the election, Agha, being a candidate for speaker, left the speaker’s seat and the assembly was later chaired by Dr Fouzia Marri, member of Panel of Chairmen of the House.

Laws Hurting Bangladesh Women Linger on the Books

By Aruna Kashyap

December 26, 2012

(WOMENSENEWS)--Sitara S. (she and the other women requested anonymity) is a Muslim woman living in Bangladesh. She gave her husband her earnings so he could get a driver's license, earn a better income and support the family. Soon after he learned to drive and got a job as a chauffeur, he vanished. She contacted the police and was shocked to learn that her husband had summarily divorced her. They showed her a copy of a divorce notice that he supposedly served her.

Now Sitara struggles to pay rent and feed her children. "I work in homes and beg them to give me something to eat and bring back leftovers for my children," she said.

Namrata N., a Hindu woman, gave her life savings to her husband to start a business. He misused the money and turned violent when she demanded that it be returned. He later tricked her into drinking acid.

Today, Namrata cannot eat or drink. She is fed through a feeding tube inserted into her intestine. Namrata is strong and wants to divorce her husband, but Hindu family laws in

Bangladesh do not permit divorce.

Yemeni Girls Keep Up With Fashion in Cold Weather

Ashraf Al-Muraqab

31 December 2012

With cold weather comes the opportunity for Yemeni women to branch out of the all black

Abaya and add some flavour to their wardrobe with colourful sweaters and sweatshirts.

Ranging from toned-down, elegant cardigans to loud, zip-up sweatshirts trimmed with fur and covered in rhinestones, there’s a sweater for every personality.

While also keeping you warm, sweatshirts provide cover for those wanting to express their fashion sense.

“Under the pretext of cold weather, we have deviated from the imposed norms and succeeded in making our society accept this,” said Najwa Al-Qaisi, a private sector employee.

University students, Hayam Noman and Noha Al-Qadasi, go winter shopping to find suitable clothing for Sana’a’s chilly season. While keeping them warm, fashion is an important calculation for these young women.

“Girls are looking for trendy, fashionable clothing,” said Noman.

Noman, a seasoned shopper, said that Sana’a’s bustling clothing stores are teeming with options at price ranges suitable for anyone’s budget.

The black Abaya, black Niqab combination is so ubiquitous in Yemen that women across social, cultural and economic classes follow the unofficial dress code. There is no law enforcing the dress, but that hasn’t made it any less popular for university students, government workers and sex workers alike.

According to university student Asma Al-Amri, the trend towards colorful sweaters on top of the black dress is new.
