No compromise in rape case over wedlock: SC
The Supreme Court on Wednesday held that there can be no compromise in a rape case in the name of promising wedlock.
 
An apex court bench headed by Justice Dipak Misra said that any compromise promising wedlock between a rape accused and the victim compromises the dignity of the woman.
 
The court said that such a compromise lacks sensitivity on the part of those promoting a settlement.
 
Holding that courts cannot take a soft approach on the issue, the bench described as a spectacular error and lack of sensitivity on the part of a lower court which had allowed a rapist to go scot free by accepting an agreement on wedlock.
 
The order came while accepting the Madhya Pradesh government's plea challenging a lower court's acquitting a man accused of rape.

IT services provider Mphasis on Tuesday said it has signed a definitive agreement with Hinduja Global Solutions (HGS) to transfer a significant portion of its domestic business.
 
The agreement facilitating the transfer is subject to regulatory approvals.
 
"Focus and specialisation will be key to success in the new digital world. I am happy to see that with this agreement, Mphasis will further intensify our focus in Digital, Governance Risk and Compliance (GRC), Application Maintenance Services (AMS) and Infrastructure Services (IS). HGS' specialisation will bring excellent value to the in-scope domestic customers and employees in India," Mphasis CEO Ganesh Ayyar said in a statement.
 
However, the company has assured of no loss of jobs as a result of the transfer of business, stating its employees to "have found a new home in HGS and will play a pivotal role in augmenting their India footprint".
 
"A dedicated unit has been set up to ensure smooth transfer for all employees. There would be no loss of jobs or headcount reduction," said Mphasis' chief human resources officer and head, emerging geographies business unit Elango R.

He said the resulting acquisition is opportunistic and fits well into his company's growth plans.
 
"It adds scale and a wider footprint even as we enhance our capabilities and gain an outstanding team of domain specialists to cater to our clientele," he said.
