For years, I asked myself a question about the relevance of a tablet in the tech marketplace. While Apple somehow changed the narrative around iPads in the past few years, the existence of Android tablets has always puzzled me. But the pandemic put the spotlight back on “affordable” tablets and created a strong use case in the online education space. The new Nokia T20 succeeds where it should make the most impact, while still keeping the price low enough for the masses to afford a device like this. I spent a week with HMD Global’s Nokia T20, and here is what I think about the device that fits more in the affordable end of the tablet market.

Six persons, including four minors, allegedly gangraped a 13-year-old hearing and speech-impaired girl at a village in Shahdol district of Madhya Pradesh, police said on Thursday. The incident took place on September 25 and the accused were caught after the victim’s mother lodged a complaint on Thursday, said Shahdol zone’s additional director general (ADG) of police Dinesh Chandra Sagar. According to the complaint, a man who knew the minor lured her to a room in the village and sexually assaulted her. Other accused, who were present there, took turns to rape her, he said, adding that the victim and the accused lived in the same village. The girl went into shock after the incident, but narrated her ordeal to her mother after some days through sign language, the official said. “Police have nabbed all the accused, four of whom are minors," he said.

The Delhi High Court, while granting bail to a 21-year-old man accused of raping a minor, expressed its concern over the “unfortunate practice” of police filing of cases under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act at the behest of the girl’s family who posed objection towards the relationship. While deriding the “trite” practice, the court also mentioned that the petitioner was only 21 and had a “complete life ahead of him”, the Bar and Bench reported. Justice Subramonium Prasad, reading out the bail order, said, “Consensual sex has been in legal grey area because the consent given by minor cannot be said to be a valid consent in the eyes of law…The rigor of the law is therefore being misapplied and subsequently misused. The short question which arises is as to whether the petitioner should be granted bail or not.” Highlighting the malpractice of abuse of law, the court said, “what has become a trite and unfortunate practice is that the police are filing … [Read more...] about Delhi HC Slams ‘Trite Practice’ of Filing POCSO Cases at Behest of Kin Opposing ‘Romantic Relationship’
