'Peepli Live' co-director Mahmood Farooqui sentenced to 7 years in jail for raping an American national



Peepli Live co-director Mahmood Farooqui was convicted by a special fast-track court last month for raping a 35-year-old American woman at his south Delhi residence last year. 

Mahmood Farooqui was on Thursday sentenced to seven years in jail and was also ordered to pay to pay a fine of Rs 50,000.

A lower court in Delhi said that if Farooqui didn't pay the fine, his jail sentence would be increased by three months.

Farooqui was on July 30 convicted of raping a 35-year-old American woman, who was in India to conduct research for her doctoral thesis from Columbia University. The filmmaker, who at the time of the conviction was out on bail, was taken into custody soon after the court found him guilty.

During her deposition as a prosecution witness in the court, the American woman stood by her complaint and alleged that Farooqui had raped her and later apologised through several e-mails exchanged between them.

She alleged Farooqui raped her when she had gone to meet him to get help for her research work. She claimed to have met Farooqui in Varanasi where she had gone to collect information.

Previously, the prosecution told the court that the victim feared a repeat of "December 16” incident if she resisted rape.

Farooqui, however, denied the allegations, saying he was falsely implicated.

Farooqui is married to director and screenwriter Anusha Rizvi, who directed the 2010 satirical comedy film 'Peepli Live. Farooqui was the writer and co-director of the film produced by Aamir Khan.

Farooqui is a Rhodes Scholar with degrees from Oxford, Cambridge, and Delhi's St Stephen's College. He is an alumnus of the prestigious Doon School.

Farooqui also specializes in the art of Urdu story telling known as Dastangoi.

Bulandshahr gang-rape could be political conspiracy: Azam Khan

Bulandshahr gang-rape could be political conspiracy: Azam Khan



Uttar Pradesh cabinet minister Mohammad Azam Khan on Tuesday created a controversy by alleging that a "political conspiracy" might be involved in the gang-rape of a Noida-based mother and daughter near Bulandshahr .

The urban development and parliamentary affairs minister said in Raampur on Monday night that the investigative agencies should explore the possibility of some opposition party being involved in the gang-rape .

While justifying the action against policemen on the issue, the minister further said that the government should also keep a watch on opponents as "people can stoop to any levels" in politics.
"For votes, people can stoop to any level. There can be a Muzaffarnagar, a Shamli and Kairana...why not this? For power, politicians can murder people, trigger riots, kill innocent people, so the truth has to be found out," he remarked.

Reacting sharply to the statement, BJP said that Azam Khan has crossed all the limits.

"He is doing politics on gang-rape now. It's a matter of shame," the BJP said. The BJP demanded a CBI probe into the incident.

BJP general secretary Vijay Bahadur Pathak said it was shameful that a senior minister could make such outrageous statements.

The state's Samajwadi Party government has been aggressively attacked by opposition parties who say Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav must resign for his failure to protect people in UP.

Mr Yadav will meet the family on Thursday.

The 39-year-old cab driver whose family was attacked, said: "We don't want politics. We don't want politicians visiting. We want justice. My child has barely spoken since the attack."

He was on its way to a funeral late on Friday, along with his family and that of his brother's, when armed men stopped his car, tied and beat up the men and gang-raped his 35-year-old wife and  teen daughter for almost three hours.

"We were looted, beaten up and we all know what they did to my daughter...I want my wife and daughter to punish them. If they are not punished within three months, then all three of us will commit suicide," he said. The family has not returned home to avoid facing neighbours or friends.

'Send Bhagwant Mann to rehab centre for drug and alcohol de-addiction'

'Send Bhagwant Mann to rehab centre for drug and alcohol de-addiction'



Bhagwant Mann, the Aam Aadmi Party MP who kicked off a controversy by live streaming the security arrangements at the Parliament, should be sent to a rehab centre for drug and alcohol de-addiction, some of his Lok Sabha colleagues have suggested. 
 
A group of MPs have written to the Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan requesting that AAP MP Bhagwant Mann should be sent to a rehab centre for drug and alcohol de-addiction.
 
The group, including Akali Dal's Prem Singh Chandumajra, BJP's Maheish Girri and suspended AAP MP Harinder Singh Khalsa, wrote: "Would be grateful that Bhagwant Mann be sent on a Rehab centre for drugs/alcohol de-addiction by the Lok Sabha on Lok Sabha expenditure.(sic)”
 
"...Only after that Bhagwant Mann should be allowed to attend the proceedings of the house,” the MPs wrote in the letter.

The move by MPs came even as reports said that Members of the 9-member panel probing Mann's Parliament video case are reportedly upset with him for not taking the enquiry seriously.

News agency ANI quoted sources as saying that there is unanimity in the committee that action must be taken against Bhagwant Mann.

"Difference of opinion in committee is on the degree of punishment-reprimand or reprimand with debarring from Parliament session for the specific time,” the source added.

The 'rehab' demand came after many MPs, including former Punjab CM Capt Amrinder Singh, came out in the public alleging that Bhagwant Mann comes drunk to the Parliament.

AIADMK expels Sasikala Pushpa for 'anti-party activities', after she alleges 'threat to life' in Rajya Sabha

AIADMK expels Sasikala Pushpa for 'anti-party activities', after she alleges 'threat to life' in Rajya Sabha



AIADMK MP Sasikala Pushpa, who reportedly slapped DMK lawmaker Trichy Siva at Delhi airport on Saturday, claimed on Monday that she was slapped by a "leader" and faced threat to life in Tamil Nadu, alleging she was being forced to quit Rajya Sabha.

Sasikala has now been expelled from her party. Her expulsion, for bringing disrepute to the party, was announced minutes after she made her statement on the floor of the House in Rajya Sabha. But that should make her happy because she remains an MP, though "unattached", till her term ends in April 2020.

An unsung MP from Tamil Nadu till three days back, Sasikala became known to the wider world when she hit the headlines for thrashing an MP, Tiruchi Siva, from rival DMK at security check at IGI airport in New Delhi, because she claimed the MP from the other party had exceeded all limits in criticising Amma and her government. Interestingly, while this incident took place in full public view, neither of them complained to the police. Siva missed that flight, which he was supposed to take with Sasikala for Chennai and took another flight.

Soon after proceedings began, Pushpa rushed into the Well of the House to make her statement. After she was sent back, she alleged, "I have a threat to my life, and I am being compelled to resign from my Constitutional post. I will not do it. I have been harassed and slapped by a party leader.” She broke down in tears while speaking.

"If you have any complaint, you are free to approach the Honourable Chairman,” Deputy Chairman P J Kurien told her. Pushpa continued, "You have to give me dignity Sir. If a MP is slapped, where is human dignity. I need protection.”

As she found support in opposition members who wanted the chair to allow her to make her full submission, A Navaneethakrishnan (AIADMK) walked into the well of the House and demanded that her remarks be expunged. "I have life threat... I am being compelled to resign from my constitutional post," she said. "Where is women's safety in this country? I am being harassed. I need protection. In Tamil Nadu, I don't have safety. There is threat to my life."

Pushpa said she was thankful to her party leader for sending her to Rajya Sabha but "if a leader can slap an MP, I need protection. I need government's protection."

"I want to serve the country (and not resign)," she said. "I am not here in Rajya Sabha for any benefit."

Asking her to write to the Chairman of Rajya Sabha, Deputy Chairman P J Kurien said, "Don’t narrate or say anything which amounts to allegations against anybody who cannot come here and protect (themselves). If you have a personal problem, that only you can say.” "There is no personal problem, but it is the privilege of an MP to speak,” Pushpa replied.

Kurien assured that the government would take care of Pushpa and provide protection if necessary. "I can assure on behalf of the Chairman, we will do the needful in the matter. If she needs protection, government will take care of it,” he said.

Later, she was expelled from the party by AIADMK supremo J Jayalalithaa for "anti-party activities" and for 'bringing a bad name' to the party.

Pushpa had been elected to the Rajya Sabha in 2014. At the time, she had been Mayor of Tamil Nadu's Thoothukudi. In January, Jayalalithaa had removed Pushpa as the AIADMK's women's wing secretary, a key post.
