|Man Forces Wife To Dip Hands In Hot Oil
NEW DELHI, July 3 (Bernama) -- A villager wanting to test his
wife's fidelity decided to do a medieval test by dipping her hands
in a pot of boiling oil.
Since her hands were badly burnt during the test, he concluded
she was unfaithful and threw her out of the house in the middle of
the night, the Indian Express newspaper reported.
The husband, Rajbhan Yadav, in his 30s, a farmer from Bhitoni
village in Jabalpur, Madhya Pradesh, a central Indian state, had
been suspecting his 25-year-old wife Anuj Bai of having an affair
and often tortured her.
The mother of three was forced to dip her hands four times in the
boiling oil in the kitchen, the report said.
In the first two attempts Anuj did not sustain any injury as the oil was not hot but the unsatisfied Rajbhan forced her to repeat the test.
"Rajbhan came home Wednesday night and asked Anuj to prove her loyalty. He asked her to dip her hands in boiling oil to prove her
fidelity saying that her hands would not burn if she was honest," a local police officer told journalists.
According to the news report, Anuj's parents urged her not to lodge a police complaint as it was a common practice.
Villagers also refused to give evidence against the husband but police locked him up after the wife lodged a report. Anuj is
undergoing medical treatment while Rajbhan is out on bail.
Hoppy couple to bring on rain
Residents in a suburb of Nagpur, 860km east of the
state capital Mumbai, looked on as the groom, Raja,
and bride, Rani, were joined in union in a solemn ritual
at the weekend, the Times of India said.
Tradition dictates that if frogs are married off with full
Vedic or Hindu rituals, the rain god is pleased and the
heavens will open within days.
Similar ceremonies have been held across the country.
Indians have been watching the skies anxiously after
the monsoon failed to appear two weeks ago, prompting
concerns about the impact on agriculture and water
supplies as lakes run dry after a long, hot summer.

|Fierce-looking primate employed to keep wayward monkeys off subways
NEW DELHI, India - They say it takes a thief to catch a
thief, but India’s Delhi Metro has hired a monkey to
frighten off other monkeys from boarding trains and
In an effort to keep monkeys out of the New Delhi
subways, authorities have called in one of the few
animals known to scare the creatures — a fierce-
looking primate called the langur, the Hindustan Times
newspaper reported Wednesday.
The decision to hire a langurwallah — a man who trains
and controls the langurs — came after a monkey got
into a metro car June 9, the newspaper reported.
In that incident, a monkey boarded a train at the
underground Chawri Bazaar station and reportedly
scared passengers by scowling at them for three stops.
It then disembarked at Civil Lines station.
Passengers had to be moved to another car while staff
chased the dexterous creature, causing delays.
The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation says it hopes the new
hire will avert a repeat of that episode.
“It started working about a month ago and since then we’
ve not had a single incident,” said Anuj Dayal, a metro
The langur handler is being paid a retainer of India
rupees 6,900 ($160) a month, and “he will be called
whenever there is a monkey problem,” Dayal was
quoted as saying.
“There are too many monkeys,” Dayal was quoted as
Langur monkeys are similarly employed around the
grounds of parliament and some government buildings
in New Delhi.
