Delhi: Mentally ill woman beheads her eight-month-old son
New Delhi: A mentally disturbed woman allegedly beheaded her child, chopped his body and was found sleeping with it in outer Delhi’s Aman Vihar area, police said on Friday.
They said that the woman had decapitated her son’s head using knives and mutilated the body using bricks. The incident happened late last night, when the baby boy was with his mother. His two sisters, aged seven and two, were at their grandfather’s residence, the police said. The boy’s father was out for work. The woman had also inflicted injuries to herself and she is currently admitted to a hospital, they said.
When the father returned home late in the night, he found his wife sleeping with the body of the infant. The boy’s father said that when he reached home, his wife did not open the door. “I sensed something wrong and broke open the door. There was blood all around and my son’s head was lying on the floor while my wife was holding his body in her lap,” he said. The boy’s father said that his wife had earlier killed their two-month-old son four years ago but they had not informed the police at that time keeping the woman’s mental condition in mind.
He said that he had sent his daughters to their grandfather’s house nearby to keep them safe. The woman had been undergoing treatment at Lady Hardinge for mental health issues, the police said. Meanwhile, locals alleged that the woman had killed her son under the influence of a godman but her husband denied it even as the police said that further investigation is underway.
Decision not to conduct class 10 maths re-exam based on trend analysis says CBSE to HC
New Delhi: The CBSE today informed the Delhi High Court that the decision not to conduct re-examination of the Class 10 mathematics paper, which was allegedly leaked, was taken after doing a trend analysis of science, maths and english papers.
The CBSE said it was a considered decision and they cannot put lakhs of students in difficulty just for one student who wanted a re-test of maths. A bench of Justices Gita Mittal and C Hari Shankar posed several questions to the counsel for the student, who has been seeking re-conduct of the exam.
The court asked the counsel for the student as to what was the difficulty and anxiety about the maths exam and why he was insisting on a fresh exam. “How you client (student) is affected with the decision of not conducting a re-test.
When you are asking for such a radical relief, you have to see it in an overall perspective… “They have done a trend analysis of not only maths paper but also science and english to see there are no spikes of leakage,” the bench said. The court, which listed the matter for further hearing on July 23, noted that the petition does not utter one word on the prejudice caused to the student and that sometimes advocates must look at larger public interest.
During the hearing, the bench said the counsel should call the student in the court as it wanted to know why she was seeking a fresh examination. CBSE’s advocate Amit Bansal placed the records relating to the board’s decision not to conduct re-examination of class 10 mathematics paper.
The court had earlier dismissed a plea seeking rescheduling of the re-examination of the Class 12 economics paper, which the CBSE has decided to conduct on April 25 following an alleged leak. The court had earlier disposed of a PIL in which NGO Social Jurist had sought that CBSE be directed to hold the class 10 exam in April, if required, and not in July as it had proposed earlier. NGO’s counsel Ashok Agarwal had said he was satisfied with the board’s decision of not holding the re-examination for the Class 10 paper.
The CBSE, in its affidavit, had earlier said it had decided not to hold re-examination of Class 10 Maths test as a scientific evaluation of random answer sheets did not indicate any unusual pattern to believe that there was widespread benefit of the alleged paper leak.
