Death for two collegians guilty of schoolboy's murder
Nagpur: A sessions court on Thursday awarded death to two collegians guilty of kidnapping and killing an eight-year old schoolboy on September 1, 2014 here.
 
The sessions court's principal judge, Kishore K. Sonawane, pronounced the death verdict against Rajesh D. Davare (19) and his friend Arvind A. Singh (23) amidst a charged atmosphere outside the court, where thousands of people were present.
 
The duo - B.Com. students at the city's PWS College of Arts and Commerce - was charged with the kidnapping and brutal killing of the minor schoolboy, Yug Chandak, by inflicting around 26 wounds on his body, which was recovered from a remote place a day after the murder.
 
The third accused - the 17-year-old brother of one of the two killers, who was a co-conspirator in the crime - has been sent to a juvenile remand home.

Really good & welcome judgement. The 3rd who is already 17 should have also been sentenced to death as the juvenile age is reduced to 16 from 18. In fact the physical age should not be considered for awarding punishment as the maturity level to commit such crimes should be made the criteria. So in the fairness of rendering justice to the family of the murdered child the 3rd also should be awarded the same punishment.

Sonia, Rahul move SC in Herald case
New Delhi : Congress president Sonia Gandhi and vice president Rahul Gandhi on Thursday moved the Supreme Court against the summons issued to them by a trial court here in the National Herald case filed by BJP leader Subramanian Swamy.
 
The Congress leaders have also challenged a Delhi High Court order going into the merits of the case and making adverse observations. 
 
Besides Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi, the apex court has also been moved by Sam Pitroda and Suman Dubey against the high court order. 
 
The high court had, on December 7, 2015, rejecting the plea of Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi against their being summoned in the Herald case. 
 
The high court had also dismissed the pleas by Congress treasurer Motilal Vora, Gandhi family friend Suman Dubey and party leader Oscar Fernandes against the summons issued by the trial court on June 26, 2015 on Swamy's complaint alleging "cheating" in the acquisition of Associated Journals Ltd. (AJL) by Young India Ltd. (YIL) - "a firm in which Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi each own a 38 percent stake".
 
Swamy had claimed that Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi, as majority shareholders of YIL, benefited from the acquisition of AJL. 
 
He had alleged that AJL had received an interest-free loan of Rs.90.25 crore from the Congress and that the party transferred the debt to YIL for Rs.50 lakh.
 
At the time, AJL, which had Vora as its chairman, claimed that it could not repay the loan and agreed to transfer the company and its assets to YIL.
 
The Congress, while challenging the summons before the high court, had contended that Swamy was a political opponent and the criminal proceedings were initiated only with an intent to secure an oblique political objective. They had contended that the complaint made by Swamy against them was only "allegations without any supporting proof".
