Every minute is important. Just because you are representing the victim you have all the right and I as an accused don’t have any right ?” The matter has been adjourned for Monday.

In a first, India and Egypt have decided to flag cross-border terrorism, and Prime Minister Narendra Modi and visiting President of Egypt Abdel Fattah El-Sisi condemned the use of terrorism as a foreign policy tool.
This is significant given India’s criticism of Pakistan over the years over cross-border terrorism and for using terror as an instrument of state policy.
The Egyptian side signed off on this formulation that targeted Pakistan, a fellow member at the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation. New Delhi feels Cairo has a more nuanced and positive position towards India, especially at the OIC, which issues statements against India on Kashmir, and the situation of minorities in the country.
“How can they delete my name from the electoral roll… Am I dead? Today you are not allowing me to vote, tomorrow you may delete my name from the ration card, then from land records… where will this injustice end?” said Hemlata, whose name was allegedly deleted from the voter list ahead of the 2022 Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections.
She moved court last year with a complaint that she faced discrimination based on caste, and received a ruling in her favour. Following the order of the SC/ST court, Gautam Buddha Nagar police Tuesday registered an FIR against three government officials.
A resident of Roshanpur village in Gautam Buddha Nagar district, Hemlata takes care of work at home and the farm while her husband Mahendra Kumar is a labourer.
