Husband shows 'letter' to prove wife was genetically suicidal

Husband shows 'letter' to prove wife was genetically suicidal

Mumbai: The in-laws and husband of Nishi Jethwani, who committed suicide by jumping off the 28th floor of her Mulund residence on June 27, have produced a ‘letter’ written by Nishi in her teenage years to prove that she had suicidal tendencies. They are seeking bail on that basis.

The Mulund police had earlier said that she did not leave a suicide note behind.

The letter, which reads more like a note, was allegedly written by Nishi when she was about 15. It was written on October 31, 2002, after her mother committed suicide, the bail application stated.

“The letter reflects the confused, frustrated, highly depressed state of the deceased. A mentally abnormal and imbalanced person alone can make such notes and writings,” the bail application stated. As per medical science, “suicidal tendencies can be seen in families across generations as depression is genetic”, it added. The matter will come up for hearing on June 14.

Nishi’s father had filed a complaint with the Mulund police alleging that her in-laws and husband harassed her. Based on the complaint, the Mulund police had booked husband Jitendra, father-in-law Mulchand, 53, mother-in-law Deepa, 49, and sister-in-law Sapna, 18, under section 498 A (cruelty by in-laws) and 304 B (death caused due to demand of dowry).

The note, accessed by DNA, was possibly written after consultation with an astrologer. It speaks about Nishi’s parents’ marriage date, her father’s star sign and “her sadesatti” getting over in the second week of November 2003. Sadesatti refers to bad phase in a person’s life. “All the views of life change after sadesatti gets over,” the note read.

The note makes declarations like - “I will dominate my husband a lot; I (will) have a lot of money in life, etc”. It also says, “I will have a thought of suicide if I have problems in my married life. My love marriage will not be successful.’’

Taking a cue from the note, the in-laws also said that she was dominating in nature and had predicted way back in 2001 that her marriage won’t be successful. They also said that she aspired to have her own money and independent house in 2001.

The bail application spoke of Nishi’s “painful and disturbed” childhood especially after her mother’s death and her father’s decision to re-marry. The bail application claimed that Nishi’s relationship with her stepmother was not good. She “never got love and affection from her family” and was sent to Panchgani where she finished her schooling and later to Pune where she went to college, it stated.

“Due to such traumatic experiences and imbalanced childhood, it is natural that she (Nishi) became mentally unstable and highly depressed and frustrated,” stated the application.

Sapna said she was a college-going student, and the case would ruin her life.


NRI couple in Mumbai moves court in dowry harassment case

NRI couple in Mumbai moves court in dowry harassment case

Mumbai: An NRI couple has moved the Bombay high court seeking quashing of a private complaint lodged by the wife of a family friend alleging dowry harassment

Jayesh and Kavita Sheth, a couple residing in Ethiopia, said in their petition that warrants were issued against them by a Vikhroli magistrate’s court in February 2007.

Forum Sheth had filed a private complaint against the petitioners, her husband Kaushal and his family alleging dowry harassment. Although Jayesh and Kavita claimed they were not related to Kaushal’s family and only lived in the same locality, Forum alleged that Kavita was Kaushal’s cousin sister. In her complaint, Forum said she was harassed by the couple and her in-laws after she moved to Ethiopia in February 2005.

“Jayesh’s passport has expired and due to the pending criminal case the authorities have refused to renew his passport,” said Sheth’s lawyer and senior counsel Shirish Gupte. “He can’t come to India to attend the court hearing.”

The Sheths’ petition claimed that as Jayesh’s passport was not
renewed, he couldn’t bring his daughter to India for medical treatment. The couple has twins — a boy and a girl. The girl is mentally and physically challenged and has been undergoing treatment in India.

Hearing the submissions, a division bench of justices BH Marlapalle and Roshan Dalvi directed the prosecution to check the present status of the case in the Vikhroli magistrate’s court.

The court has directed additional public prosecutor Prakajta Shinde to submit a report in two weeks time.

Gupte also sought time to amend the petition and add the Union government as respondents in order to get the passport renewed.



Woman admits making up rape story

Woman admits making up rape story

A woman who claimed she was raped by a stranger who followed her into her Southampton home in broad daylight has admitted she fabricated the story.

She reported to police that a man got into her home in Wimpson Lane, Millbrook, and then threatened her and raped her on 2 February.

However, detectives who launched an investigation found her story did not add up.

The woman was given an official caution for perverting the course of justice.

After she reported the attack, which she said took place in the afternoon, extra police patrols were put in place in the area.

Det Sgt Steve Spencer, of Hampshire Police, said: "As a direct result of the thorough investigation we conducted it became clear that this reported rape had not occurred.

"The time spent investigating this incident should have been used on a genuine case.

"It is very disappointing that we had to waste our time and resources on this matter but at least the residents in the Wimpson Lane area can be reassured that the reported rapist does not exist."


Woman falsely accused Lt Gen Nanda – Court of Inquiry finds him not guilty of sexual harassment

Lt Gen Nanda not guilty of molestation

New Delhi: The court of inquiry (CoI) probing allegations of sexual misconduct by Lieutenant General AK Nanda is believed to have found the charges levelled against the army officer to be false. Colonel CP Pasricha, technical secretary to Nanda, had complained against his superior for alleged sexual misconduct towards his wife during an official trip to Israel in May.

The CoI is learnt to have found Nanda innocent since Pasricha failed to prove any charges against him. Nanda, engineer-in-chief with the army, was facing an inquiry initiated by the Shimla-based Army Research and Training Command.

General officer commanding-in-chief (GOC-in-C), lieutenant general AS Lamba presided over the inquiry.

The CoI, which began on June 17, was adjourned for a short break. It resumed last week after Group Captain Ajay Rathore, defence attache in the Indian embassy in Israel, was summoned as a witness.

Rathore, a Sukhoi pilot in the air force, was called since Pasricha and Nanda have carried out most of their engagements in Israel with him in attendance.

Nanda retires from service in October while Pasricha was posted to Bhopal after the complaint. Army chief General VK Singh’s wife Bharti, who is president of the Army Wives Welfare Association, met the wives of the two officers after Pasricha lodged the complaint. Nanda was later summoned by Singh for an explanation.
